- The Summer Carnival has come to town!
This event started on Friday July 22nd, 2016 at 10:07AM PDT [+7GMT]. The Summer Carnival is in town for a limited time only! Find Carnival Tickets in bushes and use them to play all of the available Carnival Games! Earn Prize Tokens for playing, and use those to buy some of the 12 new unique Carnival items for yourself and your house! This year we've got 6 brand new quests and, for the 'Dunk-a-thon' achievement, NPCs you haven't dunked yet have a yellow exclamation mark above them. This event will run until August 5th at Noon PDT, with new content unlocking periodically! Good luck!
|Balloon Popper||Day 1 of event|
|Pro-Toss||Day 2 of event|
|Whack A Mole||Day [?] of event|
|Duck Whacker||Day [?] of event|
Note: It appears that a game won't open up until you've played the previous game at least once.
Unlike other events you are used to, sending friend invites to assist in helping your event along starts slightly different in the Summer Carnival. You have to find 4 Carnival tickets () from whacking bushes and complete the Playing a Game quest. Once finished, the Shady character will give you a quest and teach you about rigging. Return to Balloon Popper and now you can send your invites to request help in rigging.
At 100% rigging you have an approximately 1/7 chance to get the 8 token win. So while it's not guaranteed, it is possible and expected within a dozen plays or so. You will also win more on average at 100% than you would at any other %, statistically speaking.
If your game platform doesn't implement friends, the Shady character doesn't do anything. If you try to talk to him, he just says, "What? I'm not causing any trouble! Leave me alone!".
Carnival Game QuestsEdit
These quests began on Day 1 of the event.
William's Sweet ToothEdit
If you have played a previous year's event, then William's quest line will split into a new healthier version. If you haven't played before then you will have to complete the original quests. The first two quests can be done at the beginning of the event. The rest are unlocked later.
*Cotton candy and Candy apples are spawn (popup) items which appear every time you whack 15% of you base energy in bushes and critters.
New Improved VersionEdit
The first five quests are the same as the original version. Here are the last three quests:
Dunking Tank QuestsEdit
This questline started on day 2. Each quest becomes available immediately after you complete the previous one.
Once you've completed the questline, there will be somebody waiting to be dunked every time you enter the event area (the commons counts as part of the event area for this purpose). However, it may be somebody you've already dunked. Refreshing the page counts as entering. These are the victims:
New for 2016. An [!] will appear above the heads of any of the list of dunkees who have not yet been dunked.
Self Dunking (NEW)Edit
Hey, do you know who really needs to get dunked? YOU do! It'll be fun, don't you think? Hey let's make a charity out of it! Go get some pledges from people out in the world and we'll give the proceeds to Mrs. Robinson's school. GREAT IDEA!

** The sentence about the special prize appears to have been left over from the previous year. It's still in the text that appears when you click the quest icon.
The first of these quests became available on day 9 of the event, but only after you've completed the Nostalgic Whacker quests. A hunter named Elmer shows up in the Carnival area, telling you that a half dozen pandaclaws escaped through the teleporter and need to be captured. Of course, he enlists your help.
After completing the Gotcha! quest, you can talk to Hank in the Commons and select the "I'd like to convert a holiday pet" option to turn the Pandaclaw into a pet. The cost of the conversion is 1000, 16, 4, and 1 . It gives -25% to Nothings odds at level 40.
