The Summer Festival begins on the 1st day of Summer every year and continues until the 30th day of Summer.
The Summer Festival offers three minigames: tractor riding, balloon popping, and tile matching. Winning these games yields Summer Tickets, which can be exchanged for various prizes.
|There is currently a bug where the Tractor disappears as soon as the game begins. The devs are aware of the issue, and it is being worked on.|
The Tractor Riding game is located on the right of the festival grounds along the beach. n order to win, the player must mow all the grass in the fenced area within a 60 second time limit.
This is the least rewarding of the three games as it does not yield a prize if the player fails to mow all of the grass; however, if the player succeeds they are rewarded with 50 Summer Tickets.
The player can trade 500 Summer Tickets for an item version of the Tractor that can be used as a (very awkward) mount.
Balloon Popping is a typical "darts" style game with each balloon holding a different prize. The player is given 3 tries to pop balloons, and each successful pop yields a random item plus a number of Summer Tickets. The more quickly the player pops all 3 balloons, the more Summer Tickets are rewarded.
The tiled Memory Game is a pair matching game, and a fan favorite. It is the simplest of the festival games with the highest potential payoff, but also the most risky.
The player is given 6 chances to match 2 tiles in a 4x5 grid. Each uncovered tile shows an image of an item, and the player must find the tile with the matching image. Successful matches reward the player with the item displayed, in addition to Summer Tickets.
Prizes for this event vary greatly in both type and value, and can include things like Furniture Items, storage items, clothing, candles, baby animals, and much more. Even rarer items can show up, including blueprint-locked furniture, Dungeon loot, or workstations the player has not officially unlocked yet. If the player has enough coin to throw around, the many new items they will receive will very likely be worth the expense.
Since this game relies on memory more than strategy, it can help to be methodical: Move up or down rows or columns in order, in order to remember which tiles were checked. Random tile selection does not increase odds of winning, because it is just as likely for 2 adjacent tiles to match as it is for tiles on opposite sides of the grid.
There is no time limit for this game, so feel free to write down notes if needed. The tiles are marked with numbers and letters, which makes that strategy easier (though a bit cheaty).
An unfinished Tile Matching game can be continued at any point until the day ends, at which point it will reset.
