Father's Day Mini Quest 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

Nate enjoyed having your help so much with his Mother's Day brunch that he's asking you to do him another favor. He's looking for the perfect Father's Day gift, and he could really use your help! Come to think of it, his Father could use some help too!

Talk to him in front of the General Store in the Commons to get started!

The quest will run until Monday June 22 at Noon PDT.

We're also running three new Seed Packs over the weekend. The seeds in these packs award large amounts of energy, gold, or even rune dust when you harvest them! They're GREAT deals if you need a little bit more energy to complete the Father's Day quests!

See you on the forums.

Mini Golf is 1 Year Old! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

You've been whacking balls for over a year now! Mini golf pieces were introduced with last year's Summer Sports event!

But even though it's awesome and fun, we realize that it's a bit big for your ranch, which is why we're unveiling the all-new Mini Golf Zone!

To gain access to your zone, talk to Gilmore in the Commons if you have unlocked your Ranch and built the Lumber Mill. In this zone, you can make as many holes as you can fit, set the pars, decorate it with ranch items to make it look pretty and of course, play golf!

While you're building it, it's set to private, so visitors can't come and set a score on or rate an unfinished zone. Once you're ready you can open to your friends, players looking at the top rated courses, or players who visit random courses!

Ready to play ball yourself? You can visit from your friend bar or by clicking someone on Amicus Isle!

Share your course design thoughts on the forums!

To go along with this awesome new feature, we're having a sale!

Get 30% more Bush Bucks on purchases of 50 Bush Bucks or higher! Plus, with your first purchase of the weekend you get the smashingly fun Gorilla mini golf piece!

The Bush Bucks+ sale will run until Monday June 8th at Noon PDT!
