BW2 Summer Carnival Event 2017 Edition 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Summer Carnival Event 2017

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 makes a triumphant return this year! 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!

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

New for 2017
We've added new quests to the event! Peat Bog has another show to put on, if you helped him last year. Plus, that Dunk Tank is looking a little dirty. Help clean it daily once those quests unlock!

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

Event Achievements- POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!!

There are up to 17 possible achievements that can be picked up during the Summer Carnival 2017 event, depending on your game history.

Achievements Returning in 2017:
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!
Big Time Bonus Buyer - Purchase 10 Bonus Prize Packs from the Carnival!
Sweet Tooth - Help William satisfy his Sweet Tooth. Or not.
Nostalgic Whacker - Repair the teleporter and fulfill your duty…
Dunk-a-Thon! - Dunk all eight unique Carnival Event dunk-ees!

Added/Changed for 2017
Cashed Carnival - Purchase all the 2017 Carnival Event items.*
Scuba Dunk - Dunk yourself while wearing a hefty diving helmet. (Helmet is found from fishing in the Windy Crest fishing hole.)
Daredevil Darer - Make Peat Bog risk his life for entertainment 5 extra times.

BW2: International Awareness Day 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

May 12th is International Awareness Day, and we've chosen to support the ME/FM Society of BC, a not-for-profit organization that was formed to help and support people, and their families, living with the health conditions Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), and/or Fibromyalgia (FM).

So, for the next three days you can buy Butterfly Charity Cookie packs in the game, from which 100% of Codename's proceeds will be donated directly to the ME/FM Society of BC.

Talk to the person in the Commons by the Town Hall to learn more.

The cookie packs will be on sale until Monday May 15th at Noon PDT. Thank you for your time and generosity!
