Stamps are a fun new way to add reputation to your garden.

You can complete special challenges, earn commemorative stamps, and trade them with your neighbors!

There are three ways to earn stamps currently

  1. Trade stamps with neighbors
  2. Earn Stamps by completing challenges
  3. Purchasing Stamps from the Shop

We will go over each in detail, but first you need to know how to navigate your Stamp Book.

 

 

To start, click on the mailbox outside of your garden. This is where you will go to decorate your album, to collect new stamps, and to see how much reputation your stamps are earning you. You can click on your neighbors’ mailboxes too!

The My Album tab is your stamp scrapbook. Feel free to name it if you like!

  • Your album comes with one stamp to start.
  • Go ahead and click on that stamp to see your stamp grid.
    • Stamps come in all sizes
    • Because some stamps are rarer, or harder to collect, they are worth much more reputation!
    • To start, you have one page in your stamp album.

 

Edit Mode

Enter edit mode by clicking on any stamp.

You can use Edit Mode to move, store, or sell stamps, just choose the tool from the toolbar you want to use.

There are three Tabs

My Album – Where you can place stamps and earn reputation

Trades – Where you can display any stamps you want to trade

Get More -  Where you can view challenges that will award you stamps when completed.

 

Only stamps placed in the My Album tab will earn reputation. Stored stamps do not earn reputation, because no one can see them!

 


 

Stamp Trading

You can trade stamps with other players! Whether you find you need a smaller stamp to fit in nooks and crannies of a full album, or if want a stamp with higher reputation, or simply want one you think is beautiful, you can do that with Stamp Trading.

Putting your Stamps up for Trade

To trade a stamp, you first need to choose a stamp you are willing to trade from your inventory.

If the stamp is not in your inventory yet, you will want to go back to your album, store it, then click the Trade tab again.

 

On the trade tab, click the inventory envelope. We are going to choose the Hourglass V that we started with. You can see in this inventory that the stamp is 2x2 squares large, and worth 7,200 reputation (This is just an example amount, real values may be different).

 

Click the stamp you want to trade, then place it anywhere on the page. When a friend visits you, they can go to your mailbox and see what stamps you have for trade.

 

They can choose any stamp that they have, and trade you for the one you put up. Currently, there is a limit so that stamps have to be roughly similar in value to trade. You can’t trade beginning stamp in trade for a really rare stamp.

 

 

Looking for other player’s Stamps

Visit your neighbors to view their stamp album, and if they have any stamps to trade!

If you haven’t yet, check out Lulu’s lovely album!

Share pictures of your favorite album pages, or post pictures of stamps you would like to trade in our forums!

 


 

Shopping for Stamps

Enter the stamp shop by visiting the My Album tab of your stamp book, then clicking the Stamp Shop icon, which looks like a glue bottle.

Just like real stamps, the stamps you purchase come in stamp booklets. Each booklet has a variety of stamps in it, which you can keep for yourself or trade with other players. The reputation value of the stamps in the booklet set is written next to the crown icon on the set. This is the total value of all of the stamps in that booklet.

In this example, we have purchased the Sleepy Panda set. It may take a moment for this message to appear while the stamps are being delivered to your inventory.

You can also purchase more pages for your album by clicking the Album tab in the Stamp Shop.

Questing for Stamps

You can earn individual stamps by completing special challenges. Click the 'Get More' tab to see what challenges you can do. Some examples would be: visiting neighbors, earning stars, and placing gifts in gardens.

The harder the challenge, the more the the stamp will be worth.  

 

For Maximizing Reputation Bonuses: Fill your entire album. If there are no empty squares, you will receive a special bonus.
