A lot of you may be stumped initially on how to acquire Architect Smurf, ever since he was introduced on the 4 May update. Due to the concurrent quests Papa Smurf issues, players may be confused on the sequence and process to acquiring him. Below is a brief guide on what you need to do in order to successfully build Architect Smurf’ hut. Firstly, you need to know that Architect Smurf can only be purchased on the island’s build menu, not the main village. Secondly, you need to be at level 20 after Handy opens his hut shop in the main village in order to get this going. Handy Smurf can be purchased in the main village’s build menu for 500 coins. You can identify Handy’s hut that has a hammer icon hovering about his hut. Having Handy Smurf gives you the option to upgrade your mushroom houses to have more smurfs, first round by coins, and second, by smurfberries. Handy Smurf also comes with a simple hammering mini game that earns you a small amount of xp each time ( you can find out more about Handy Smurf here).
Anyway, once you have gotten the update on 4 May and have completed any of Papa Smurf’s existing quests, the new series of quests will be triggered when you tap on Papa Smurf. Basically, he will ask you to send 3 smurfs into the forest for 2 days (48 hours), and this will happen a total of 4 times. Without using smurfberries, this will already take you 8 days to complete.
After which, he will ask you to collect wood from Timber Smurf. Not to worry if you have already just collected wood from Timber Smurf. Normally, you have to wait once every 12 hours to collect wood from Timber Smurf. But specially for this quest, you will see an arrow hovering above Timber Smurf’s hut and the wood icon hovering too. Tap on it to receive the wood and the quest will be completed.
Lastly, Papa Smurf will ask you to add a shed to the hut. Find Handy Smurf’s hut and now you will see the arrow hovering there. Tap on Handy Smurf’s hut and now you will an additional button that says ‘Handy’s Shop’. Tap on it and you go into a whole new menu that allows you to customize your mushroom houses into different variations. Initially, you have a few choices but as you unlock more and more blueprints, you get more choices. Some of the blueprints can be found by Jokey or Marco Smurf. If you can’t wait, you can always purchase them with smurfberries. You will see options to purchase wood, stones and dye and some special packages.
You will then realize in order to customize the huts, you need raw materials like wood, stones and dye. Wood can be harvested from Timber Smurf every 12 hours, while stones can be collected from Miner Smurf once a day. Sadly for dye, you can only acquire them either through gifts from Jokey, friends or sending smurfs on a dye expedition on the island. Once again, if you can’t wait, you can use smurfberries to purchase these raw materials.
To customize your huts, simply tap on the desired customization, and tap on a selected mushroom house and tap once again to confirm you wish to customize the hut. Note: You need an available smurf to do the customization. It is almost like building another mushroom house as it will take time from 4 to 12 hours to customize.
Anyway, you can now head to the island, tap on the build menu and build Architect Smurf. Architect Smurf can be found next to Slouchy Smurf for 1500 coins. Once constructed, you will realize Architect Smurf share the same build menu as Handy Smurf, with one difference. With Architect Smurf, you can use the dye to color your mushroom houses on the island, performing the same function as Painter Smurf. Unfortunately, while coloring in the main village is free if you have purchased Painter Smurf, coloring on the island is not. For every dye, you will notice a cost involved. Some dyes cost more than others, so do take note before you decide to color your houses. Beeline currently has no intention of making the dye coloring free on the island, but you never know. One last thing to note, once you have customized your mushroom houses, DO NOT move them, as the customization will be lost. This is a glitch that has been made aware to Beeline, and we hope they can fix it as soon as possible.

It seems like many Smurfs village fans are struggling to upgrade Christmas Tree, we therefore decided to add some screen-shots to help them to bypass this quest.
- Go the shop and buy the “750″ coins Christmas tree. Note that you can only buy it once and you cant delete it. If you already bought it, then go the next step.
- Insert it somewhere in your village
- If you tap at the bottom of the tree where the wood cross is, a small upgrade window will pop up on the right.
- Upgrading Christmas Tree costs 250 coins, if you tap upgrade a dialogue box will pop up and will ask you to confirm your intention to upgrade the tree.
- If you tap ‘Yes’ you will upgrade your tree, and voila you will get a beautiful Christmas tree with nice little star on the top.
This message can come up when you want to plant a new crop field or flower garden or shrub. It means you have not enough Smurfs to build the item.
The number of Smurfs living in your village equals the number of flower gardens + crop fields + shrubs (little trees that grow fruits) that you can have in the village. This does not mean the number of available Smurfs (i. e. Smurfs that are not working at the moment) but the total number of Smurfs.
To increase the number, build a house, upgrade a house or buy a Smurf from the Smurfberry Shop.
All of the available mushroom houses can accommodate up to three Smurfs. Once a house has been build a new Smurf will come back from the forest and enter the village to live there.
Taping on the house opens a window on the right-hand side of the display, at the bottom of that is an upgrade button (only available from level 9 onwards after Handy Smurf’s Mushroom house has been build).
The first upgrade costs 500 Coins and visually adds doorsteps to the house and now two Smurfs can live in it.
A third upgrade adds another Smurf to the village, this one is available for 4 Smurfberries and hence the maximum number of Smurfs being able to live in a house is three. This upgrade adds an attic and a laundry line to the mushroom house.
If more Smurfs are needed there is also an option in the Smurfberry-Shop to buy a new Smurf for 5 Smurfberries without the need to provide him with lodgings.
