Here a Gift, there some Housekeeping! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

This week's update includes a feature often requested by players: A Gifting System!

Players who want to surprise their friends can now buy Bush Bucks, Pet Packs and VIP Time for them! For now the gifting system only includes premium items, but we may expand it to include other items in the future.

To get started, you will just need to find Sasha in the Commons, and talk to her, she'll now have an option in her dialogues to allow you to send gifts.

Depending where you are in your progress within the Commons, you can find Sasha in one of four places:

  • If you have NOT built the Farmer's Market, she will be standing just to the right of the north entrance to The Commons.
  • If you have NOT built Sasha's house, she will be standing to the left of the Town Hall.
  • If you have built Sasha's house, and are at her party, she is to be found inside her house.
  • If you have already attended the party, Sasha will be found outside her front door.
  •

Let's all go to the Summer Carnival! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

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!

There are 4 carnival games which will unlock over the next few days, and quests which unlock on a daily basis. As this is the Carnival's third year, we've made a few changes for returning players and for all players, we have a fun surprise which will unlock in the second half of the event! Keep your eye on the Bush Whacker Facebook Page and the Codename Entertainment Twitter for updates as quests and activities unlock!

So let's break this event down:


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 Pop," "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 in your favour! (Platforms without Friend functionality are balanced accordingly.)


POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!! - Achievements
There are up to ELEVEN possible achievements that can be picked up during this event, dependant on your game history. Some achievements stack in the Event display, and earnable achievements from previous Carnivals that are year specific will not be listed at all. To help players avoid confusion, we've detailed all the achievements below. If you do not want to have certain quests potentially spoiled, we encourage you to SKIP THIS SECTION!

Repeating Achievements in 2014:
Step Right Up - Win a Prize Token gaming at the Carnival! (Large Energy Pack)
We have a Winner - Win 8 Prize Tokens at once at the Carnival. (Large Energy Pack)
Carnival Ace - Win 8 Prize Tokens at all 4 Carnival Games. (Title Unlock)
Gotta Try 'Em All! - Play all four games offered at the Carnival! (Large Energy Pack)
Big Time Bonus Buyer - Purchase 10 Bonus Prize Packs from the Carnival! (Large Energy Pack)

Carnival Connoisseur - Buy all the 2014 Carnival event items. (Large Energy Pack)*
Sweet Tooth - Help William satisfy his Sweet Tooth. Or not. (Large Energy Pack)
Nostalgic Whacker - Repair the teleporter and fulfill your duty… (Large Energy Pack)

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

We have 3 achievements from previous years, which may be earnable by spending some Bush Bucks, if a player was not present during the initial year:
Carnival Customization - Buy all 6 player items from the 2012 Carnival (Large Energy Pack)
Party at My Place - Buy all 6 house items from the 2012 Carnival! (Large Energy Pack)
Carnival Collector - Purchase all of the 2013 Carnival event items. (Large Energy Pack)
