Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Terry Fox Charity Drive!

In 1980, Terry Fox set out on the Marathon of Hope to raise money for cancer research. To commemorate his efforts, we're running a Terry Fox Charity Drive.

Until Noon PDT on Wednesday September 19th, you can buy Charity Marathon Waters to restore your energy. All of our proceeds here at Codename Entertainment from those sales will be donated to the Terry Fox Foundation, which maintains the vision and principles of Terry Fox, and continues to be a leading national investor in cancer research. You can learn more about the charity here.

BW2: Jr. Whacker Event 2018 Edition 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Teach Me How to Whack!

It's time to put your knowledge of whacking bushes to good use as you help educate the next generation! Take a trip to the Event Area of the Commons and get helping!

Help three aspiring young ones learn how to whack bushes, mana whack, and power whack! Bring the Jr. Whackers some Cardboard Swords to use, found in bushes throughout the world, and they'll share the spoils of their training with you. As you help them, they gain experience, "leveling up" and will award more items with each turn-in. Each of the determined young padawans will have a daily quest to power up the spoils from their next turn-in.

One Jr. Whacker appears to have suffered a head injury, since they are idolizing Nate. Talk to them and see what's going on.

What's a funner thing to earn than your Baking badge? Nothing of course! Help one Jr. Whacker get theirs later on in the event.

Help Keisha get her camping badge again this year! Check back daily for her quest unlocks.

New for 2018
We've added 2 new quests that will unlock in a row next Friday. Enjoy!

Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Summer Carnival Event 2018

The Carnival has returned to town! Get ready to play some games, help some Bushwhackian residents and win carnival tokens which you can exchange for cool prizes at the Carnival Event Vendor!

The Carnival Games:

A staple of any summer carnival or fair, are those devilish carnival games. There are four different games which will unlock over the course of the event and they include "Balloon Popper," "Whack-A-Mole," "Baseball Throw," and "Duck Shoot." Don't worry, there's no skill involved with these games, you play them automatically when you interact with them.

- It costs 4 carnival tickets to play each game, and you can whack those tickets out of the bushes, or purchase them from Timmy in the Event area for Bush Bucks (30 Salvaged Tickets for 30 Bush Bucks)

- You receive Carnival Tokens based on how well you do. Now, we're not saying they're rigged in the Carnival's favour or anything, but you'll definitely want to ask your friends to help you rig these games to help you! (Platforms without Friend functionality are balanced accordingly.)

To get started, the Balloon Popper game is unlocked! As well, it seems William needs your help to satisfy his sweet-tooth!

The Pandaclaw was wandering around here somewhere....build the teleporter and complete all the quests and get your very own!

The dunk tank returns! Can you dunk all 8 helpless Bushwhackian residents? This year, NPCs you haven't dunked yet will have a yellow exclamation mark above their heads, to let you know you still need to send them plunging into the icy waters of the tank! Help them all cool off! Plus, keep it clean!

Peat Bog, Pete the Carney's brother has some tasks for you to help him put on a show!

And how are your Power collection skills? Are you strong enough to win all the bonus prizes?

New for 2018
We've added 3 new quests to the Strong Man quest line, which will be available one a day as the event goes on.

Event Achievements- POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!!

There are up to NINETEEN possible achievements that can be picked up during the Summer Carnival 2018 event, depending on your game history.

Achievements Returning in 2018:
Step Right Up - Win a Prize Token gaming at the Carnival!
We have a Winner - Win 8 Prize Tokens at once at the Carnival.
Carnival Ace - Win 8 Prize Tokens at all 4 Carnival Games.
Gotta Try 'Em All! - Play all four games offered at the Carnival!

Added/Changed for 2018
Prized Prizes - Purchase all the 2018 Carnival Event items.*
Dunking Devs! - Dunk the four developer Carnival Event dunk-ees!

* The Carnival Mini Golf piece is NOT included in the Prized Prizes achievement, and therefore it is not required to purchase it.

Party at My Place - Buy all 6 house items from the 2012 Carnival!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When will the last quest unlock?
    All quests will be unlocked by the 11th day of the event.

    It helps you rig the game and improve your chances of getting 8 tokens.

  • Do I have to do the achievements?

    Either on the holiday dialog, the achievements dialog, or on the blog.

  • Where can I see progress on the Dunking Achievement?
