  • Decrypt The Message:

    Have hidden pieces of parchment that can be found by harvesting from the main farm. Each piece of parchment combines to fit into one large piece.

    When completed a full code is revealed, this must be decrypted by players  (ie: by finding and using a cypher (Caesar cipher for example)). The revealed text can be a promotion code for a gold sale, decoration, etc. The first few players will receive a special reward.

    The good thing about this is that it can be used across multiple languages without requiring an understanding of English.

    Contest suggestion:  Whoever can come up with the best solution to help GGS fix the DSF.

    Breakdown on the Lab
    126,321,371,000 (lab cost) ÷ 5,000,000 (Average daily earnings) = 25,264.27 days
    25,264.27 (days) ÷ 365 (days in a year) = 69.22 years to fully upgrade the Lab
    That's if you use the daily earnings to upgrade the Lab ONLY, no spending on other upgrades, islands, boosters, or anything else.
  • Contest suggestion : How about a simple contest that every player that says Merry Christmas during a Christmas themed competition receives a special Gold prize of 36500 gold to help offset the super excessive amount of coop competitions that we have be forced to endure.

    Hi
    I have a few ideas.

    1 - Deco Value

    Using a image simular to the to the one used in "That's not right" you would place deco's through out the farm and players would then have to tell you the total value of deco's in each block on the grid

    2 - Scavenger hunt

    This would be similar to the in game version - again using the grid from "That's not right" you would hide lets say sweets through out the farm. Players would then need to give you the grid location and color of the sweet.

    3 - Scavenger hunt V2

    Based on the same concept as the previous suggestion, you would give payers 10 images of items such as a tractor, barrel, tree house, Lester, rain-dear. Players would then you the answers in the form of a list
    Barrel - B5
    Tree house - D2
    Tractor - A1

    4 - Cross word - The crossword puzzle like the one you had on April fools was fun, I would suggest doing the same only difference being this one would have a solution.

    5 - Big farm Math

    This is a slightly more difficult one but it should be fun.
    How it would work is you would give images of 5 decos, as well as a number lets say 521.
    The players would then need to go to the deco tower to get the happiness value of each deco using each number only once they would use Addition, Subtraction, Division and multiplication  to get as close to the number you gave as possible. If one player got to 519 and another got to 522 the person who got 522 would win as they are 1 away


    Im on the same page as you!!!! I was thinking about what to do for the contest but then I came up with the same things that you came up with

  • Howdy everyone!

    I know lots of people likes contests , and I'm personally looking for idea's

    Also, if u'd like to see specific things in rewards

    I'm all ears :)

    Of course I would love another arty-type contest, or one like we did for the Big Farm Game 10th Birthday.  Regardless of the contest, I would love to see a flag for our farms (maybe our own choosing) be made available for the winners and for the participants (non-winners).  I know others would love gold rewards, but I think a special flag would be great!

  • Maybe a contest could have a few riddles and some images and the goal would be to answer 2 questions:

    1. (not sure, you'd have to create the final riddle to be sure).

    2. Something like, how many of the letter "e" did you see (in the riddles and images together), and make sure to put loopholes in the 2nd question, since the question itself should appear the easiest.


    Maybe also a contest to find the best idea's for a contest? :D

    Or maybe something to do with more morse code :)

    And there's always the possibility of doing a bigfarm trivia contest, although if it's not real-time, not too sure what the questions would be :(

    My last idea would be kinda like the football fever event, you would start with a bunch of bigfarm character's and it would work just like a soccer competition.

    Every day, their'd be announced a new match between 2 characters and you'd vote for one and whichever one won (decided randomly probably) whoever voted for that character would get a certain amount of points and the person at the end of the contest with the most points would win (and some 2nd, 3rd etc place prizes of course :D

    Maybe a Sudoku type contest and you have to find the numbers to fit that are hidden around our farms.

    @TiminuTufu ,Okay, if I design a flag, will you send it to the GGS artist to have a flag made for a contest winnings?  If so let me know the dimensions they would want it.  Also let me know if they want simple designs or if they want something more complex.  (p.s. I am not good at doing people's faces, but trees, flowers, mountains, I can sketch with relative ease) Note, doing more realistic bird paintings like I submitted for this last "Make a badge contest" is too much for my arthritic neck these days.

    @FarmerCli (US1) Could you design me a Uncle Willys Co-op Flag?
    I think it would be great if we could have our own in game co-op playlist instead of the endless BF song along with those coop flags  :)

    Now that the dairy building is out, a contest can he held that we make the available products in dairy building and bakery in real life. All participants will get the corresponding dish that they made as reward, plus some extra rewards.

     My contest suggestion is not for a new contest, but a repeat of a previous contest that wasn't a contest. In 2018, our former Mod, RowdyRac, had an idea of having players tell everyone how they came up with their username.  It was very interesting and a fun read. It's not easy to pick a winner for such a non- contest, so I suggest that all who participate be awarded a "What's in a name?" forum badge. We've had a lot of new folks join the community since 2018 and I think it would be fun to hear their stories. :)  Here's a link to the previous "What's in a name?" contest so you can see what I'm talking about. Thank you!
