Weird Science

One of the highlights of the County Fair is the Science section, where the kids get to show off their brainpower!

There's just one problem... the kids have asked Doc and Stafford to help out and they're a little... well, competitive!

So, while it's up to us to help foster Doc and Stafford's ideas, don't be surprised if we end up doing some refereeing.

By the time it's done we'll hopefully have some great Science Fair exhibits, Doc and Stafford still friends AND some awesome rewards!

As usual, there's going to be a popup to start...

That will kick off a five mission thread with a wrapper and a Monday Mission (all details HERE). We'll also see a standard four step build, the Science Fair Booth (all details HERE).

Outside the ordinary mission type stuff we're going to be helping Doc and Stafford come up with ideas to pass on to the kids for their experiments and then using the solutions that come from them... and that means a short chain of items.

We'll start off with Doc's Scientific Hypothesis (coin option) or Stafford's Brilliant Revelations (premium) which are tended with three wall post items each, Copious Notes and Rough Sketches.

Those will then drop Theories, Nature, Electrical or Explosive... Hypothesis drop one of the Theories, Revelations drop all three.

...which are used on Experiments of the same name (3 tends each).

From those you get Successful and Unexpected Results which are used in missions.

Other than that it's all fairly standard, although do you remember how you wanted to tend animals? Well, get ready for a tend fest in Monday's wrapper with us needing to tend 5'000 Pigs, Sheep, Goats and Cows for experiments!

We do have one new free gift crop, the Strapple...

And a collection that gives it...

Now onto rewards, because there's some nice ones outside the usual boosts, gold dust and crops... but the really good ones come with the wrappers.

The mission wrapper gives us Spirit Tree Doubling, giving us two drops each time instead of one (something I know most players will love), and then Monday gives us a little bit more Express in the game with two brand new Admin-imals, Lisa Shpig and Gemma Goaw :D

So... with that in mind, let's get scientific!
