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!

Spring Garden Event 2017! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

All the Pretty Flowers in a Row!

The SIXTH annual Grow-A-Thon has returned to the Commons! Whack the bushes and gather their bounty so that you can plant flowers and trees in the Event area to make yourself a gorgeous garden. Impress the judges every 20 hours to earn Spring tokens to buy this year’s Custom Items. You need to impress the previous judge to get a rating from the next one.

Plus, fill your magnificent garden with critters! There are 5 to get throughout the event, starting with the Squirrel today! On platforms with friends, you can send out requests for a free one. On platforms without, you get a free one when the animal unlocks from the animal vendor! The tool-tip when you hover the critter in the store has their unlock date!

Also returning is the Gorgeous Garden contest! Check back next week for more details!

George has such a terrible green thumb, he’ll be looking for you to help him out trying to grow a plant for the first (or third) time.

Spring usually means spring cleaning, right? Freddy needs some help cleaning up his house. It’s gotten a little bit spooky. Cleaning items can only be whacked in his house.

Timmy wants to wake his turtle up from its hibernation after that long, cold winter. Aid him in finding things to tempt it back to consciousness.

New for 2017:

We've added 9 new quests! Last year's beehive quest gets an additional 3 buzzing quests, and learn more about helpful insects from the insect fan!

Event Achievements -- POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT

There are a total of FIFTEEN possible achievements to earn in the Spring Garden 2017 event.

Pet Packs

New 2017 Pet Packs (Coming Soon!)



Post your green thumb adventures and questions on the forum!

The event will run until Friday May 19th at Noon PDT!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can I find the seeds?
    Just keep whacking. The Holiday Item runes and pets will help attract them as well.

  • How do I grow plants?
    There are the planters outside the garden to grow flowers in. If you click on them, you can see the plant store. Each plant has a different cost and grow time to get you your event progress points. You start with 4 free planters.

  • Is it good to buy extra planters for growing the plants?
    If you have the seeds to spare and prefer to plant long-growing plants, then yes, it’s worth it.

  • How do I get the Decorator achievement?
    If you go into the gardening area, the store button ($) has a selection of garden decorating items, where you can find the planter styles and watering can. These items also cost seeds.

  • What are the possible seed combinations for Farmer MacDonald’s quest?
    You can choose seeds that grow either Energy or Gold, and then choose between 20, 15, 4, and 3 hours of growth time.

  • Why do my custom seeds cost Gold to plant?
    You created the combination, which is unlocked until they expire. Just like normal plants, they cost Gold for planting. We don't award a flat number of seeds, because not all players have the same amount of farm plots. This way, you get to choose how many you end up growing. :)
  • Why don’t my custom seeds last longer?
    Because they're OP! Enjoy them while they last. :)

  • How do I please the judges?
    Just keep growing plants. As your event progress increases, you will impress the judges more and more. You DO NOT need to place them in your garden if you don't wish to. The plants still count for progress.

  • Does the Timey-Wimey watch or Time Turner affect the judges?
    No, judges do not have quest cooldowns, so trinket effects that work for quests will not apply to them.

  • What adds to my event progress?
    Growing plants worth points and completing the side quests. To get the points from your plants, you don't even need to place them in your garden! Just grow them!

  • Do I have to do the achievements?
    No. Completing the goals for the achievements is totally optional. You get either a large energy pack or a title for your character from them, no event progress.

  • Where can I see all the achievements available and how to get them?
    Either on the holiday dialog, the achievements dialog, or on the blog.
