[See all entries in Hector's Ultimate Pics and Tricks for Smurf Village Friends]
From time to time, you will be facing new challenges – you will have to solve a smurfy riddle! Of course you should try to figure them out on your own, but if you just can’t figure it out, we have put together a few hints for you. Well, more than hints, but now you have been warned!
You will also find other quests that may not exactly be riddles but appear frequently on the Smurf Village Friends wall.
If you do not wish to know the answers, please skip this Chapter.
Q: “I may seem tough, I may seem dry, but beneath the surface I make you cry. What am I?” Hint: It’s a crop.
Answer: Plant a crop of onions.
Q: “This is a room that has no floor, no walls, no windows, and also no door. What is it?” Hint: It’s a placeable item.
Answer: Place a mushroom (NOT one of the houses) in the village. Any of these mushrooms will be fine!
Q: “Many foods can make me strong, but give me water and I won’t live long. What am I?” Hint: It’s a placeable item.
Answer: Place the fire cauldron in the village.
Not so much a Riddle but a vocabulary test. Papa will ask you to grow a crop of Maize on Level 25.
Answer: Maize = Corn (not the Golden Corn, btw).
Did you know that the word ‘maize’ derives from the Spanish form of the indigenous Taino word “maiz” for the plant? Gotta love Wikipedia!!
Papa smurf will ask you to place lanterns for the Firefly Festival. Do not place the lamp posts. It is these lanterns with the poles that look like candy canes!
You will go through storyboards where Papa Smurf is telling Grouchy a riddle about things that Silly Squirrel likes and does not like. Two quests are asked of you: to place flowers or grass and then a snail or a butterfly.
Answer: Place the graSS and the buTTerfly (items with double letters)
TIP: If you already have a butterfly, instead of buying another one, you can wait until it’s ready to give its bonus to complete the quest.
Thanks, Ron for the pic!!
Papa Smurf starts speaking gibberish.
Answer: Plant Magic Raspberries (The words above are backwards).
Clumsy will ask you to place a keg. A keg is one of the brown barrels with Smurfberry juice dripping from it (pictured above).
Gargamel will change himself into a Smurf and try to take over the village from the inside (only discussed in the storyboards and not actually seen in the game). However, Papa Smurf is suspicious and has this mysterious smurf clean the outhouses to prove his worth. Outhouses are bathrooms found outside of buildings (pictured above).
Papa will ask you to add a Magic Shrub to the village. They look like trees and if you click on them you can grow fruits and nuts such as acorns that never wither when they’re ready for harvest. More info here!
For the Christmas update you will be asked to upgrade the Christmas Tree. The confusing thing is that there is more than one type of Christmas tree. The one that Papa is referring to is the 750-coin tree. The other Christmas trees cost 150 coins and there is a bare pine tree for 100 coins. You can only buy the 750-coin tree once. Afterwards, the above menu will read “Already Placed”.
This is what the Christmas tree looks like before the upgrade.
Click on the bottom of the tree (where the blue square is in the pic above). The above menu will appear where you can upgrade the tree for 250 coins.
TADA!!! An upgrade Christmas tree with a star on top and lights that glow!
As any other riddles or questions come up, we will add them to this chapter. Happy Smurfing.
See you around the village…
