    Character names that you can find throughout Big Farm, like Lester, Monty, etc. (hint: some animals also have names) If you find a name, list it - the worst that can happen is that it won't count. :)

    Prizes will include gold for the top name-finders. :)

    Any direction - up, down, right, left, diagonally.. Just your standard Word Search. :)

    Can you please give name of all characters?
    I thought about that when I was creating the puzzle, but that would make it too easy. :)
    Then at least tell us how many names are hidden in this puzzle ;)

    I finished mine, thank you  this was fun, :)
    Update> I sent in My answers Yesterday but did not get a message back saying they were received, and now I do not see them , I sent a message again asking if they were, I am not sure how long I am to wait in the conversation Section cause I waited  like 10 to 15 minutes before I logged out yesterday with no response back.
    P.S. I just found My answers again but still no word as to if they were received yet, again not sure how long I am to stay in the conversation section though.

    Congrats & well done by the winner's this round.
     A few more of these contests would be a nice welcome to the forum.

    @Data King (US1) We would love to do more contests involving word puzzles, but you need to remember that the names of the BF Characters are the only words that are the same on all servers, the buildings, products, decos etc all have different names in all the different languages & we have to take that into consideration, to keep the contests fair for everyone.

    We love getting contest ideas from you all & there is a thread where you can post them:

    Contest Suggestions

    Make sure that you read the Guidelines in the 1st post, on page 1 & that your suggestion fits in with them. :)

    all most all word searches actually give you the words you are looking for. that way you can search for the given word.when you go to the store and buy a word search book every word search has the words you are supposed to be looking for. that is why it is called a word search not word puzzle.so whether  the names mean the same in other langues or not would not matter. i for one did not do this simply because i did not know what words to look for. so you could give a list of the words we are supposed to be searching for. the point of a word search is to find that given word, not to have to figure out what word you are looking for to begin with. this was a word puzzle and search. if it was a normal word search it would have given the words to search. 
    ijrosh @ us 1
  • @ijrosh (US1) I agree, but there is a difference between a puzzle book & a contest, the contest is to see who can find the most, just like when we do spot-the-difference, we often do not say how many differences there are, because if it is too easy, everyone wins & we end up having to have a draw for the prizes, which is not the ideal way to decide the winners.
