With your Musket, Fife and Drum!
All the kids have tried to do is set up some fireworks for the Fourth of July celebrations and Granny's got off her rocker to go off her rocker, as she thinks the kids need to learn some real history about the War of Independence as she remembers it!
So, it's time to take a real trip back in time as Granny takes us all on a flashback to her time in the revolutionary army and tries to knock us all into military shape...
Let's just hope she doesn't take it too seriously eh...?
As usual we have a popup to start.
That will open up a standard 5 mission thread, with a wrapper and a Monday Mission (all details HERE). We'll also get a four step build, the Reenacters Camp... (all details HERE)
From here on out we're going to be doing our part to make the reenactment go smoothly, educate the kids and... well, avoid Granny (you'll see....)
Much of the missions surrounds four new Free Range style animals (only storable) that will be playing their part in her fantasy warfare.
They start out as simple props...
...get fed with either our own feed or (even better) feed sent by neighbours that each counts for 4 tends...
...and turn into one of four animals, each with their own mass of excellent drops!
We will, of course, see a new Free Gift Crop, this time it's the Lima Bean...
...and when we finish the missions we'll get to dress ourselves up in a Blue or Red Coat and a period Tricorn Hat!
