Fly Away with Summer Vacation 2015 
Tags: event, eba.


Greetings Breakers!

It's Vacation time! 12 of the Egg Breaker Monkeys are packing their bags, and getting ready to set off on their annual summer vacations - there's just one catch; None of them can actually afford their airfare!

You'll need to help these poor, unfortunate monkeys raise the funds to achieve the vacations of their dreams! You're going to have to work hard and use those multipliers to earn enough gold to get the monkeys where they want to go! Thankfully, you have the Vacation Blitz Buff in the Vacation Monkey's stages to help you increases your chances to find multipliers and gold.

General Event Details:


- During the Vacation Event, Summer Tokens can be earned in any and all Monkeys. (Consider wearing any and all Event Token hats to increase your Summer Token drops!)
- There are 12 prizes to be won, through normal play (No Buy-only prizes in this event!)
- 12 Vacations to send the Egg Breaker Monkeys on. Each Monkey needs you to raise the gold to pay for their vacation (Aw, you're so nice!) As each Monkey is set off on vacation, the next goal will become available automatically and you will start earning towards it.

Let's break down the Vacation Monkey's special event stage:



From the Travel Monkey's Special Event Screen, you can:
  • Track how much time is left until the event ends,
  • See how much progress you have made toward the current vacation goal,
  • See the full Trip Cost currently,
  • See the Monkey eagerly waiting for his trip, with his/her dream destination,
  • Track the Monkey destinations across the world as you help them reach their goals!
  • Visually track your progress towards Vacations earned, Prizes collected (Click the Prize button to see which ones you've earned/are missing), Progression Ribbons and the Vacation Trophy!

Rewards and Extras!:

Ribbons:
3 successive ribbons for progression, which permanently add additional +5, +10 or +15 hammers respectively.

Summer Trophy:
Can be displayed in the trophy room.

Ribbon and Trophy (if earned) are awarded after the event finishes on August 12. The highest ribbon earned will be awarded.

Available in the Vacation Monkey's Store:

Vacation Crate - 250 Vacation Tokens
- Contains a random selection of hammers, multipliers and star pieces
- Must be used by 11:59:59 PM PDT on 2015-08-13!
(We encourage you to use them by the end of the day on August 12, just in case!)

Vacation Hammer - 5000 Vacation Tokens
Small increased chance to win multipliers when equipped.

From 2014:
Visor - 5000 Vacation Tokens
10% more Silver Eggs

Summer Carnival Fun in BW2 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.


Summer Carnival Event 2015

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 in your favour! (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!

New for 2015
The Pandaclaw was wandering around here somewhere....

Keep an eye out for a new addition to the event zone later on, that's a splashing good time!
