How to play?
1. For each game day, you get a new set of daily goals (e.g. Holiday Surprises goals - Part 1 and 2) and you need to complete them to earn 100 Present Axes and a Winter Present.
2. Open your Winter Presents to earn prizes. This step is optional. The Main Goal counts the number of Winter Presents you have regardless if you open them. But do make sure you redeem your prizes before the Monthly Event ends to avoid losing them.
3. Open 31 Winter Presents from daily goals, events or purchase from Market to complete the Main Goal (e.g. Welcome Tucker the Seal goal) to earn the Grand Prize.
How to open a Winter Present?
Place your Winter Present on your farm and click on it then click on the Present Axes at the bottom of your screen.
What happens if I missed a day or 2 of the Daily goals?
You can earn Winter Presents as rewards from other events occurring during the month, besides the Daily Goals. So keep going with your daily goals and keep a lookout for more ways to earn winter presents.
(1) Present Axes are not found in barn or cellar because they take up space. You can see how many you have by clicking on the winter present and see the number of axes shown at the bottom of your screen.
(2) You get a new set of Daily goals at midnight PST.
(3) Daily goals expire at midnight PST. They don't carry over to the next day. It's important to note this and convert to your own time zone so you don't miss out. You can use this Time Zone Converter to figure out your local time. You can enter "San Francisco" for the Storm8 time zone (PST).
(4) Make sure you redeem your prizes before the Monthly Event ends to avoid losing them.
(1) Prepare your warehouse orders before the next game day starts. Align them and discard those which you can't complete so that all orders are ready to go when you get your new daily goals.
(2) Stock up your farm items while you prepare for the next game day.
