Lucky Smurf’s booth is available on the mainland for 1200 Coins from level 14 onwards. Lucky Smurf is stationary and does not walk around the village. He comes with his own mini game or shop.
Lucky Smurf’s Mystery Box Shop Game can be played once a day. At the beginning of the game there are three square brown boxes that the player can choose from. Opening one of the boxes reveals a prize. This can either be kept and placed in the village or dismissed for another box.
Choosing between a second set of three boxes (round red ones) costs 5 Smurfberries and they will once again give a prize.
It is also possible to dismiss this prize once again for a third choice of three boxes (square green ones). Opening one of these boxes costs 10 Smurfberries.
In the first box the prizes are usually low cost items that can be obtain for a few coins from the build menu (such as flowers, mushrooms etc.). But they do, on rare occasions also contain prizes that would otherwise only be available via Smurfberriees (such as the Harvest Wagon (originally 15 Smurfberries) or the 60 Smurfberry version of the butterfly).
The second and third box often contain items that are either otherwise available for Smurfberries, where temporary available (such as the Rose Archway, the Halloween Bat etc.) as well as unique items that have not yet been otherwise available (such as a game table, a Gargamel doll etc.) or even Smurfberries. But it is also possible to simply end up with a couple of coins after spending 5/15 Smurfberries on the boxes, a good prize is not guaranteed.
Even though the first box often only contains low price items, it is definitely worth playing the first box once a day, as it can contain a high price Smurfberry item, even if only on rare occasion.
In version 1.1.9 (iOS) and 1.0.7a (Android, expected soon) an another new special Smurfling was added whose hut can be bought with coins. Snappy Smurfling’s yellow mushroom house costs 2500 gold Coins and is only available on the island. In order to be able to place his hut in the village you have to reach at least level 22 upwards. Snappy Smurfling is not stationary, that means he walks around the island and gives quests on his own.
His hut is yellow and he has a brown bear sitting next to it.
With the latest update the upcoming Smurfs Movie is promoted and the smurfs can now build a movie theatre in their village. The theatre is available for a limited time and costs 300 coins and builds in 4 hours (2 hours if Hefty Smurf has been placed in the village before).
Tapping on the theatre opens a link with a trailer to the upcoming movie. It says that the item is only temporary, so we can assume that it will be removed again with one of the upcoming updates, just like the seasonal items.
Unlike most of the other building the movie theatre does not come with a special smurf associated with it, so building it does not add another character to your village.
The movie theatre and the advertisement for the Smurfs Movie have now been removed with the September 2011 update (app version 1.1.3).
An other Smurf who is available for Coins is Miner Smurfs. Miner Smurfs Mine is available at level 12 for 1000 Coins and takes 24 hours to build as well. Miner is stationary and comes with his own mini-game.
Every twenty-four hours Miner gives 200 XP and 100 Coins and like Timber a sign above his mine shows when he is ready. Clicking on his mine also shows a countdown bar indicating how long it takes until he is ready again to give bonus XP and Coins.
Stones put near his mine increase the amount of XP given by miner, the bigger the stones, the more bonus XP they give. To see which stones are affected and within Miner’s range just tap on his mine, all stones that give the extra XP will turn green, just like the logs placed near Timber Smurf do. The Maximum XP you can get from the stones put next Miner’s mine is about 1000XP.
Miner comes with a mining mini-game. There are four different mines to choose from, after that it is the goal to break open as many rocks in 60 seconds with an axe as possible. If a broken rock reveals silver, gold or a gem it can be traded for XPs (gems) and Coins (gold and silver). Cole can also be found under the rocks but if this happens it cannot be exchanged for something valuable.
To increase the speed with which the stones are broken by the axe, the use of the golden axe is required; it cuts the number of blows of the axe needed in half. The golden axe can be bought within the mining game for 20 Smurfberries.
Miner Smurfs’ Hut & Diamond Mine
The Miner Smurf Update (version 1.2.7 on iOS and 1.1.5a on Android) added a Mushroom House for Miner Smurf as well as a new mine for his game.
The Diamond Mine Is only available after Miner Smurf’s Hut has been build. The Diamond mine, unlike all of the other mines, does not have coal, meaning that the rewards in XP and Coins for playing this mine can be higher than with the other mines.
Miner Smurf’s Hut is available for Smurfberries. After it has been placed it will grant an additional 200 XP every time Miner Smurf’s Mini-Game has been played, that means it can give up to 200 XP every 6 hours.
Miner Smurf’s Mini-game Bugs
If you are android users and you have already updated Smurfs village App to the new Christmas / winter (2011) update for , you may encounter some problems with Miner Smurf mini-game. Mainly you may barely smash the rocks, or the game freezes and crushes.
This problem only occurs with some Android devices in particular Samsung Galaxy. According to Beeline, you can avoid crashes during miner mini-game by going into the Smurfs’ Village options and turning off the sound. This will allow you to play Miner Minigame smoothly with no problems.
Handy Smurf’s mushroom house is available for building in level 9 and costs 500 Coins and needs 24 hours. Handy Smurf is stationary as well. As soon as Handy’s house has been build, the option to upgrade the regular mushroom houses, so that they can occupy more Smurfs, is enabled.
Handy’s mini-game is a hammering game, depending on what difficulty has been chosen the task is to hammer one, two or three pegs into the ground. A bar on the left side indicates Handy’s current strength, the higher it is the deeper the peg gets hammered into the ground. All pegs have to be put into the ground before the countdown time on the top right corner runs out. Sometimes Handy puts his thumb between the hammer and the top of the peg, if this happens putting the hammer down will hurt him and he cannot continue to hammer for some time. That is why it is important to always watch out for his thumb.
Handy’s mini-game gives on the highest difficulty up to 200 XP if the hammering has been rated “smurfy”.
Handy Smutf’s Hut Shop
Architect Smurf who left the village will come back to again if the smurfs build for him nice house. They can only do it if Handy Smurf helps them. In the past Architect Smurf taught Handy on how to customize Smurf’s huts, so now Handy is qualified to customize the huts. But he needs to upgrade his hut and get a shop first in order to do so.
Upgrading Handy’s hut enables you the access to another menu “Handy Shop” on top of existing menu “Play Handy’s Game” (This feature is only available to Apple iOS Users now). To get this new “Handy Shop” menu, the player must complete 5 papa long quests (send3 Smurfs into the forest to find things for handy… something like that) on main land.
The new Handy Shop menu allows the user to customize huts using wood, stone and dye resources on the main village, as well as will unlock Architect Smurf’s hut.
Note: In order to place Architect smurf on the island, the player must “upgrade” Handy hut on main land FIRST.
Timber Smurf’s mushroom can be build on level 7 for 300 Coins, it takes 24 hours to build his house and like Baker Smurf Timber is stationary and does not walk around in the village.
He gives 120 XP and 60 Coins every twelve hours and moreover for every log or wood that is placed close to his house he gives bonus XPs. To see which logs are affected, just touch Timber’s mushroom, everything that turns green around him is within range and gives extra XP. As soon as Timber is ready to give XP/Coins, a sign appears above his house, tapping it will instantly give the bonus.
Timber does not have a mini-game.
Baker Smurf is stationary, i.e. he does not walk around the village but rather stays in front of his bakery. Baker Smurfs Bakery can be build in level 4 for 80 Coins and it takes 2 hours to build it. The bakery offers a baking mini-game where the user has to help Baker bake cookies, cupcakes and cakes on different difficulty levels.
The task is to remove the pastries from the oven (by touching them with the finger) when they are done, but before they have been burnt. Depending on the difficulty the user is responsible for at the same time ranges from 4 to 8.
Some special Smurfs are not entirely free, they have to be bought with the in-game currency “Coins”, but they do not cost real money.
