Gardens of Time: Time Lab – Glass Greenhouse

Shortly before the St. Patrick’s Day Crystal Chapter ended, Playdom introduced something brand new into the game. ¬†Players noticed it if they looked at the corner of their screen or if they happened to see that a new quest chain had been added. It was a Time Lab. Inside was a Time Mechanism (that had some glitches in it that frustrated players). What was this thing?

Gardens of Time: Chauncey Go Lucky

Gardens of Time adds in special “Crystal Chapters” every so often. They tend to have a holiday theme (which is why few of them interest me). The only way to play the scenes in a “Crystal Chapter” is to gather up enough crystals. Play the regular scenes, and hope that enough crystals will appear for you to finish the whole thing before the time runs out. It’s a gamble (another reason why I rarely bother with them).

Gardens of Time: Ten Days of Gifting – Garden Willow

Every so often, Gardens of Time gives players a unique thing that they can put into their garden. You receive it in an “under construction” state, and have to build it up. Of course, in order to build it up, you have to ask your friends to send you certain items (and hope that they will give them to you).

Gardens of Time: To the Renn Faire!

If you play the Gardens of Time game through the Playdom website (instead of through Facebook) you get what I think of as a “paper doll”. This is your avatar. You can choose male or female. The game starts you out with a couple of outfits and hairstyles.

If you want something beyond what you are given at the start, you need to buy it. Some of the dresses, hairstyles, shoes, etc., can be purchased for Playdom Points. You accrue these points almost automatically as you play the game.

Gardens of Time: 8 Days of Gifting – Frosty Garden

To be honest, I was not expecting another one of these type of ….quests (for lack of a better term) so soon. We just had one at Christmas time. Maybe this is going to be a regular thing?

One day, I logged into Garden of Time, and there it was. Playdom had given me a Frosty Garden to try and complete. From what I have heard, not all players were given one. I suppose this makes it extra special!

Gardens of Time: Snow Bunnies and a Paris Painter

Those cute little balls of fur are “Snow Bunnies”. When you see them in-game, they bounce. There are six bunnies: 3 white and 3 brown. The brown one at the bottom hops three steps towards the center, then stops, then hops three steps back to where he started. Some of the rest stand up on their back legs and sniff the air, before sitting back down.

Gardens of Time: The Medieval Tower is Complete!

This is what the completed Medieval Tower, in the Gardens of Time game, looks like. ¬†It took a long time to finish the entire thing, and a total of 17 quests. I heard that the opportunity to build the Medieval Tower was given to randomly selected players. If you didn’t get it, then you were just out of luck. (Or, so I’ve heard).

Gardens of Time: 12 Days of Gifting

This year, Gardens of Time decided to do a ton of Christmas stuff. I didn’t participate in everything – mostly because I’m not a huge fan of Christmas. But, I did participate in an event called “12 Days of Gifting”.

You know the song “The 12 Days of Christmas”, right? That’s pretty much what this little event was based on. On the first day, players had to get at least one friend to send them a partridge in a pear tree. On the second day, it was no longer possible to send a friend a partridge in a pear tree. Instead, you could send a gift of two turtle doves. And so on, and so on.

Gardens of Time: Dragon Tower

Behold! The Dragon Tower (at level 5)!

This screenshot is from the Gardens of Time game. Basically, it’s a game where you have a scene filled with stuff and you have to find certain objects within the scene. It’s fun. You get your very own “garden” to put stuff in, like buildings, decorations, and a bunch of other stuff. The buildings start out looking pretty good, but you can level them into something more awesome if you want to.

The Dragon Tower is my favorite item in Gardens of Time.
