In the Smurfs village the Doctor Smurf update (version 1.2.6. on iOS) also added Reporter Smurf to the village. Reporter Smurf is available from level 4 onwards on the mainland and can be obtained by completing a quest from Papa Smurf to go and find him. That also means he is absolutely free, costing neither Smurfberries nor Coins. Once Reporter Smurf has been found, he will walk around the village and tapping on him opens the “Daily Smurf”, his newspaper.
Every Day, for opening his newspaper, he will give a different reward such as Coins, Wood and other supplies, XP etc.
To get this reward simply click on “Accept” at the bottom. This way regular players will be rewarded. We do not yet know if there is also the possibility of getting a Smurfberry reward.
To get the bonus the game has to be connected to the Internet (to prevent cheating), otherwise the “Daily Smurf” will still appear but the bonus will be unavailable.
Unfortunately, at the moment, there will sometimes be a message that there is no Internet connection or that the clock is set wrongly even though everything is correct. In that case, it might help to wait a bit before trying again or reopening the game.
Even though there is a “Tweet” button in the Daily Smurf, a twitter account does not have to be set up to get the bonus and have Reporter Smurf in the village. When tapping on the tweet button without having a twitter account, a message will appear that the tweet failed.
(Also note, that if you have a Twitter Account set up on your device, it will ask you permission to access the account when you open the game. At the moment there seems to be a bug that causes the message to appear everytime the game is opened)
