Ravenwood Fair Facebook Guide: Tips, tricks, hints, strategies, cheats and tricks
Ravenwood Fair is a brand new Facebook game by LOLApps, makers of Critter Island, that combines the amusement park genre of Facebook game, with exploration-themed role playing games and and business games to create an all-new, extra in-depth gaming experience, and to date, it has been enormously popular, attracting just under 1,000,000 players in just under a week since it was released. In this game, you chop down scary trees in the forest, build your own eateries, attractions and other 'fun' items, and visit your friends' parks as well. Make money, earn items such as wood and mushrooms, and build your fairground to epic proportions!
The following tips and tricks will make it easier to earn money, mushrooms, experience, items, and overall just to have a lot of fun in the game.
To earn profits faster and allow your visitors faster access to all of your attractions, move all of your attractions so that they are closer together. You can even do this with attractions that are already built, but that you have to chop down scary trees to access - just chop down the trees, clear the thorns or whatever you have to clear, then when you clear the thorns off, just move the attraction so that it's closer to the center of the fair, where the visitors enter the fair. The smaller the distance your visitors have to walk, the faster they can get to all of the attractions, and thus the more money they can spend.
More fun = more visitors = more money.
There is a number of games already built in your fair that can earn you money, but are covered by thorns and hidden by scary trees, so once you chop down the scary trees and make it to the games, you can de-thorn them, and voila, you have yourself a free game. .
Go visit your neighbors' fairs. You'll get energy boosts and bonus money for doing so (and for responding to their feeds), and you'll earn extra experience points for playing with their attractions. Some of their attractions can be played with without even using any energy points to do so, so play with those.
Talk to your visitors when you see them. Sometimes they'll just talk fluff, but it's still entertaining to talk to your visitors, just like talking to the townspeople in an RPG, just to hear what they say. Some of them will even drop inside jokes, like a reference to the millennial fair in Chrono Trigger. Other times, visitors will tell you what they really want to see at the fair (hint hint - use this to figure out what to build at the fair).
Don't be afraid to spend your mushrooms on energy boosters. This is one of the few energy-based games where energy can be bought with a free currency, and you can earn plenty of mushrooms simply from chopping down scary trees. So when you want to splurge on energy, go for it.
If you see one of your visitors shaking, click on them. They're scared, and if you click on them and calm them down, they will no longer be scared, and instead be ready to start spending money at the fair again.
If you want to figure out what's best to build early on, look at the price of whatever buildings and/or games you can choose from, and compare price to both the fun and profit factors. One of the best things to build is a sweet corn stand. Build a lot of cheap attractions to start off with, and you'll make a lot of money.
One of the quickest ways to earn money and experience (and to get a sense of what direction you want to take your fair in) is to concentrate on beating various quests. You'll get huge bonuses for doing quests, and the tasks that you are trying to complete, will help your fair anyways.
That's it for now. Got more tips? Post them in comments!
