Night of the Scarecrows Game Overview
Your farming village is under attack by an army of angry scarecrows come to life! These straw warriors have awakened from decades of sleep...use your skills, strategy, and speed to keep the oncoming army at bay. Defend the village using torches, pitchforks, and animal allies...and don't let the scarecrows reach the village gates!
Click Play Now to start the game. Clear the advancing scarecrows by clicking groups of three or more like symbols.
If you clear a group of seven or more symbols, you get a Crow. Click a Crow, then click a scarecrow, and that crow will fly up the column, removing all scarecrows of that type.
Click the Goat to capture him, then click him again and select a row to clear that entire row. Be careful...if the scarecrows reach the bottom of the screen, the game is over!
Tips and Strategies
· Try to put together the largest groups you can. Not only do they earn you Crows, but the REALLY big ones are worth the most points!
· You can have up to three Crows and three Goats in reserve, so if you have three of either, don't be afraid to use them! This is particularly true of Crows; if there is a Crow you can play that will leave behind a group of seven or more, there's no reason not to do it because you will get the Crow right back.
· Remember that Crows only fly up the column from the point in which you play them, so if there are also matching scarecrows below that point, they will not be removed. Sometimes this can be used to your advantage.
· Goats are really powerful in that they bulldoze a complete row, which is one more row the scarecrows have to advance before the game is over. A cleverly-played Goat can turn a good group into a great one!
