    the last event we had like this, I found it easier to match background colors than pictures. I don't know why, just the way it worked. Anyway, nice cloud row, you know I'm all in on both farms. Grow grow grow...mill mill mill...play play play

    Thanks for starting us off again Nala777. :)

    The first and last event we had with similar mechanics was Valentine's Day. That event was also rated as "easy", and there was even a note in the FAQ indicating the drop rate would be high, but people were still complaining about drops.

    There's no such note in the FAQ this time around but the drop requirement is also significantly lower (1015 vs 1330 for the previous event) while the crop requirement is almost identical (14500 vs 14250), so I expect the overall difficulty will be similar.

    My strategy for this event will be the same as last time:
    • take a screenshot of the card layout at the beginning of the game
    • flip 2 cards at a time in sequential order, starting from the top left corner
    • note the position of each character on the screenshot I prepared earlier in MS paint after each turn
    • rinse and repeat until I get a match
    In the Valentine's Day event, the card in the bottom right corner never changed from one game to the next but other than that, there was no discernible pattern as far as I could tell. I managed to finish most games within 12-14 turns and occasionally ended the game with 11 turns or less if I got lucky. Even if you end up exceeding 14 turns, I'm pretty sure you can exit the current game and start over again with a new set of cards, if I remember correctly.

    If one gets 7 bonus coins per game and manages to play all 30 games, they'll have 1260 star coins to spend in the shop. Not bad seeing as how you don't have to buy any of the givers and it only takes 1750 star coins to buy all the misc items (minus the sticker and CAC).

    Good luck everyone!

    Just started and I have to say that the drop rate is very good!
    I harvested all my trees and stables after the event started. I also harvested a lot of onions and asparagi that I planted them yesterday. I had the 2
    statues in every farm I was harvesting (I haven't unlocked the rune yet).

    The results were wonderful.
    136 foils in 30 minutes!!!! I will continue this strategy, but I will only use the event plant now!

    I put my 10 seeds in 10 2X2 filds along with
    super-grow, water and Suzy's super-grow. In 1 and a half hour I'll have 80 seeds, which I'll then plant in 1x1 along with water and a carrot-apple chutney! Th rest of the fields will be used for a normal plant with 4 hours as grow rate. By the end of th day, I will have A LOT of seeds for tomorrow!

    Just a small tip, if you activate the carrot apple chutney before harvesting you will have 100 seeds to replant :)

    That is fixed now, the bottom right card varies, but the exit trick still works :)

    You are right, thank you! I was going to activate the chutney before I harvest for the second time, but since the effect won't last until the next day, I will use it earlier!

    Drop rate appears to be as good as, if not better than, last time. Combined with the lower drop requirement, I think there's a good chance that the average farmer will find the "easy" rating to be accurate this time. :)

    -.- <-- using as substitute for mild profanity.
    That takes the probability of finishing in 11 turns or less from "very low" to "all but impossible". :cry: Oh well.

    If you eat a Pinkie Pie Pie after activating the CAC, you can extend the CAC from 18 hours to 23.4 hours. ;)

    Thank you for your information. But it's too late. :(
    Also, I wake up around 12:00 in the noon, which means that the buff will probably be over by then, even with the Pinkie Pie Pie...

    My bad, didn't realize you were up earlier than usual and assumed you would be up at around the same time tomorrow. :oops:

    I believe we can play more than the 30 games. How else could we purchase all the goodies? :music:
