In an earlier stretch goal, we got eight event cards and now we've got four more for the next goal... and we only know what three of them are!

So far we have Heavy Rain, Parasites and Animal Disease... but what are the other nine? I thought it would be fun to guess what the rest of them are and I'll tip to the first person who guesses correctly for each of them.

So get out your crystal balls, cast your runes, consult a fortune cookie or just guess and tell me what you think the other nine events will be!

***4 new stretch goal Event Cards have been announced- so we're going to try and guess them! What do you think they will be?***

Re: Guess the Event Cards for Geek Gold
I'll start with an "Infestation of Mice - each player loses 1 food from each completely filled silo."
Losing food for every silo could be too harsh and this way there is additional incentive to buy more of them if you can then spread your food thinner.

Btw, what'd be your guess, Gretchen? I'll take care of your bounty if you end up being right.

Okay, only because I haven't seen the answers yet- I'm going to guess "Tornados"- maybe loose half your buildings, crops and livestock for the year.

That's pretty harsh...but I've seen it happen- up close and personal a few years back- and it's not as uncommon an event as anybody would like!

But no bounty- I disqualify myself because it wouldn't be fair.

I got the official word and we're both wrong! I can't guess again... but you can! (I like the mice idea...it would mean we need cats!)

If I got one right, how could you be sure I hadn't peeked?

Re: Guess the Event Cards for Geek Gold
Hailstorm, thematically this should have effect on fruit harvest, but that would probably not work.
Maybe something like produce 1 less food on fields during harvest.

Added complexity, hail cannons could be a construct that protects from this.

Do you have a connection to the campaign that I never realized? Or how would you peek? (Or maybe I'm just missing something super-obvious because I'm kinda tired ^^')

Hail would affect ALL the crops- it can flatten fields! But no, no hail, thank goodness. Try again?

I don't really have any connection to the campaign (other than uber-fangirl) but I asked permission to run this contest and Vangelis very kindly told me the titles of the event cards in a geek mail so that I could.

So I could peek now... although I hadn't when I first guessed!

Re: Guess the Event Cards for Geek Gold
If we have heavy rain, we have to have a drought to go along with it, right?

How about Government Subsidies? Price changes at the Co-Op? Square dance?

Re: Guess the Event Cards for Geek Gold
I agree with wind/tornado, hail, and drought.

Also, perhaps 1) weeds, 2) pesticides, 3) fertilizer, 4) equipment malfunction / breakdown.

Re: Guess the Event Cards for Geek Gold
How about some good weather? Nothing bad happens.

Maybe some family stuff in the way of working (childbirth?), thus allowing for less harvest to be done.

Ok, Insects we had with parasites...

What's the simplest thing that could go wrong with a farm?

I thought about the family stuff myself... but it's been avoided in the cards I know about.
