    i.	About Viva Piņata		[abvp]
    ============
    
    Viva Piņata is a simulation game developed by Rare Ltd. and published by
    Microsoft Game Studios for the Xbox 360. It was released on the console in
    November 2006 and was ported to the PC just a year later. Viva Piņata, as one
    would assume, is presented in a very colorful and vivacious way (a la Animal
    Crossing). There is a related TV series that airs on FOX in the United States.
    The game has been fairly well-received by popular video game sites and
    magazines but did not generate a large fanbase. A portable version of the
    game is set to debut on the DS sometime in September 2008. An Xbox 360 sequel
    is set to be released around the same time. All games have been given an ESRB
    rating of E for Everyone.
    
    
    ============
    ii.	Controls			[ctrl]
    ============
    There are two sets of controls: "Simple"  and "Advanced"
    
    Simple controls cater to small children and are more annoying than useful.
    The Advanced setup utilizes the left analog stick for movement and the right
    analog stick for camera. The simplified setup also avoids use of the left and
    right triggers. The following controls represent the more complex scheme:
    
    Left Analog -	Move your character
    Right Analog -	Rotate camera
    A Button - 	Your action button. It is context-sensitive, meaning that it
    		has different uses for different situations.
    B Button -	Your cancel button. It is used to release whatever item you 
    		are holding or cancel certain actions.
    Y Button -	Help menu. It will explain various things on your screen. Place
    		your cursor over an item and press Y to find out important 
    		information about it.
    X Button -	Also an context-sensitive action button. When you have an item
    		equipped, you will use that item in a different way than if you
    		had pressed the A button. If you do not have an item equipped,
    		this will bring up the options menu.
    D-Pad Right -	Uses short grass if pressed once. Uses long grass if pressed
    		twice.
    D-Pad Left -	Uses the watering bucket.
    D-Pad Up -	Uses the shovel.
    Start Button -	Brings up the game menu where you can change settings or
    		manage your game files.
    Back Button -	Cancel button. It will automatically exit you out of whatever
    		menu you are in.
    
    
    ============
    iii.	Beginning Your Adventure	[byad]
    ============
    
    Viva Piņata has a flawless difficulty curve. It takes only about half an hour
    to get used to the controls and be on your way. As you progress, you learn more
    advanced techniques to help you manage all the nuances of keeping a garden.
    
    When the game begins, you will see a young Irish(?) girl sobbing away in the
    middle of what is supposed to be a garden. Her name is Leafos. Head over to
    here. Place your cursor over her so that it changes colors and press the A
    button. You will use that same technique to interact with various tools,
    Piņatas and other items throughout the game. When you do this, Leafos will
    tell you the sad story of her garden and invite you to help. Accept her
    invitation and she will explain the very basics of the game.
    
    Take her horribly twisted shovel and get to work. If you don't remember what
    Leafos told you, you can go back and talk to her as she'll be standing in the
    same spot while you toil away. Equip your shovel by pressing Up on the D-Pad.
    You now have two jobs: 1) Break things and 2) Soften the dirt. Hold the A
    button and run around the garden in order to cultivate the soil. When you
    come across a piece of trash, place your cursor over it and hit away. Each
    piece of trash has a health meter which will slowly drain as you continue
    to pound away at it. Completely drain each item's health meter to rid your
    garden of its unwanted presence.
    
    Some pieces of trash will provide Chocolate Coins when you destroy them. Make
    sure that you collect as many of these as possible by highlighting them with
    your cursor. If you get bored or annoyed with Leafos then go smack her with
    the shovel. It makes her cry and is deliciously satisfying.
    
    When your land is cultivatable enough, a black and white Whirlm will appear.
    It is a tiny cigar-shaped Piņata which you have to entice into living in your
    garden. Leafos will eventually give you a grass packet. Once you have finished
    making your dirt entirely soft, pull out the packet. Press the A button to 
    drop some seedlings into the soil.
    
    The Whilrm now does some kind of ceremonial dance. Quite obviously
    excited by your recent efforts, the Whirlm will completely change its color
    scheme. This now greenish orange-ish catastrophe indicates that the Whirlm
    loves you so much that it wants to reside in your garden. Leafos suggests
    will tell you a little bit about the Whirlm and suggest that you name it.
    
    
    ============
    iv.	Getting a Home			[gaho]
    ============
    
    The next major event to happen to you in the game is the arrival of Willy
    Builder. Willy Builder is a unique little dude...he's like a blue robot
    monkey or something. Either way he is a useful asset to the upkeep of your
    Piņata farm. He constructs homes for Piņatas to reside in. These houses
    improve your Piņatas' overall well-being.
    
    Your first Piņata house comes free of charge. You can place it wherever you
    want to, given that the entrance isn't blocked by the area's boundaries.
    Willy and Leafos will move out of the way if you want to place the house 
    (which is designed particularly for Whilrms) where they are standing. A timer
    will appear on the Piņata house while Willy is building it. It represents
    the estimated completion time. 
    
    There is no limit to the number of Piņatas that can live inside a Piņata house.
    However, only one species of Piņata is allowed to live in each house. If you
    want to cater your garden to different species then you will need to get Willy
    Builder to construct a house specifically for that species.
    
    ============
    v.	Romance, The Spice of Life	[rmnc]
    ============
    
    Whenever you obtain two Piņatas of the same species (Whirlms will likely be
    your first duplicate species), Leafos will suggest that you entice them into
    producing little baby Piņatas. To do this, both Piņatas must live in the
    same residence in your garden. As you discover new species of Piņata, you
    will have to satisfy other conditions as well.
    
    If the Whirlms are prepared to romance, a pink heart icon will appear over each
    of them. Use your cursor to select both of them to initiate another
    ceremonial dance and the Romance game.
    
    The Romance game works like a maze. You have to lead one Piņata to the other
    within the given time constraints (1 minute). The maze is lined with some kind 
    of bomb-creature (Loathers, I think?). You will also encounter various 
    Chocolate Coins during the Romance game. Make sure to pick these up along the 
    way but don't make an effort to obtain all of them if you aren't going to 
    complete the maze on time. If you fail the maze then you don't get to keep any 
    of the Chocolate Coins you have obtained up until that point. Some of the 
    coins are not stationary and will weave their way through the maze.
    
    The bomb-creatures may not be stationary either. Those that move are a little
    harder to navigate around. There are also dark red bomb-creatures that line
    the maze on occassion. You have to sneak past these by gently tilting the
    left analog stick.
    
    If you accidentally touch one of the bomb-creatures, you will suffer a time
    reduction as well as the loss of one life. The number of lives that you begin
    with will vary with each species. If you run out of lives then you lose the
    minigame. You will be able to try again later but with less lives. If I
    remember correctly then you have five lives for the Whirlm Romancing game.
    Number of lives is indicated by the Piņata heads on the side of the screen.
    
    Completing the minigame will result in a cut scene in which the Piņatas
    perform yet another ceremonial dance. Being a kid friendly game however, you
    won't see any goo-covered Piņatas popping out of the mommy Piņata. A visit from 
    the stork will suffice here (good call, Rare). Actually it's a female bird 
    creature that delivers you the egg. The egg will hatch in a short amount of
    time. The life cycle of a Piņata gets a little weird after that. The
    miniature Piņata will then wrap itself into a shell. After another arbitrary
    amount of time, an adult Piņata breaks out...only to be eaten by another,
    bigger Piņata sometime down the road.
    
    Don't be afraid if your new Piņata doesn't turn out exactly like his parents.
    Each species of Piņata has different color schemes and other varying
    characteristics.
    
    As you breed more and more Piņatas, you will achieve the Master Romancer
    status. This doesn't do much for you but will make the mazes a little easier
    by providing you with more lives. Note that just because you are a Master
    Romancer with one species does not mean that you have achieved the same status
    with the game's other Piņata types.
    
    ============
    vi.	Basic Gardening Strategy			[bsst]
    ============
    
    Leafos provides you with a watering can and seeds after you complete the Whirlm
    Romancing minigame. Watering plants is a science so don't take anything for
    granted. You'll have to provide each plant with the correct amount of water.
    Inappropriate amounts of water will handicap and may even destroy your crop.
    
    Equip the watering can by pressing the left D-Pad button. Press the A button to
    water for a short time and the X button to pour the water continuously. The 
    amount of water in your watering can is indicated by the blue-colored triangles
    by your cursor. The B button and Back button both unequip the watering can.
    Your watering can loses water as the blue triangles turn a lighter shade of
    blue. The only way you can refill your watering can is by waiting.
    Alternatively, you could unequip it than then quickly re-equip it. A minor
    glitch that will save you time.
    
    Plants will provide you with money and experience. Certain plants will bring
    about certain Piņatas and stimulate their romance requirements. Make sure to
    sow your seeds into holes in the dirt. Trees will flourish much more
    successfully if they start out in holes.
    
    While watering your plants, a meter will appear that indicates how much water
    the plant has been offered. When the meter is in the space between the
    brown and blue marks then you need to quit watering. You can later obtain
    upgrades which will take some of the intense pressure off you. ;)
    Eventually you can obtain the One Pour Wonder upgrade which will make it so that
    you only have to water a plant once in its lifetime.
    
    Garden objects are typically for decoration purposes only. Some objects have
    practical uses as well. Fences can keep Piņatas out of certain areas. Some
    objects are made to attract certain types of Piņatas. Ivor Bargain sells pretty
    interesting objects also, including an item that decreases the bickering
    between your Piņatas (the Red Eye Rainbow). 
    
    Weeds, by some unlikely coincidence, are harmful to your garden. If you are
    unfortunate enough to have seen the movie "The Happening" then you are aware of
    the dangerous effects of rogue plants. They can give you Piņatas all kinds of
    sicknesses (including a virus that makes them completely destroy your
    garden). One interesting twist is that certain weeds are required Romance
    and Appearance conditions for different Piņata species. In total, there are
    four separate kinds of weeds: Thistle, Poison Ivy, Toadstool, Venus Piņata
    Trap.
    
    Only grow weeds as necessary. If you have unwanted weeds then use your shovel
    to exterminate them. Seeds of weeds actually sell better than actual weeds.
    Unlike trees, weeds won't grow in holes in the soil. Here is an alphabetical
    list of plants, weeds, bushes and trees. Their soil requirements are listed in
    parentheses.

    Fertilizers are also a major part of growing a bountiful garden. There are many
    different types of fertilizer and all serve a unique purpose. Rare has
    integrated a semi-color coordinated system. Piņatas of one color will often
    eat fruits of the same color. The fertilizer of that color tends to be more
    efficient when used on Flowers of that color or trees that bear fruits of that
    color. Using the appropriate fertilizer will produce more Flowers and better
    fruits. An additional bonus of using the correct fertilizer is that you gain
    experience levels and increase the level of your garden.
    
    One way to know if you've applied the right amount of fertilizer is to listen
    to the game mechanics. Use the audio as a guide. A high-pitched ding means you
    have done it correctly whereas a flat soundbyte indicates an incorrect amount
    of fertilizer.
    
    To begin planting, dig a hole with the seed head on your shovel. Use your
    garden space wisely. You need to plant things far enough away from each other
    so that they have room to grow but close enough together so that you can 
    maximize your garden's output. Try digging about ten holes to begin with
    because that is the maximum amount of seed you can buy at one time.
    
    Next you'll need to plant the seeds of whatever you want to grow. Fertilize
    each and every one of them using the appropriately colored fertilizer (see the
    list below). You will fertilize everything that is highlighted by your cursor.
    This can save you a bit of time on larger projects. When you have laid the
    fertilizer, begin to water the plants. I have spelled out the basic techniques
    for watering previously in this section, but experience is a better teacher
    than I.
    
    When you start seeing buds appear on your Flowers and trees, dispense some more
    fertilizer onto the plants. Remember to listen to the game's sounds while you
    do this as different plants require different amounts of fertilizer. If you
    have done everything correctly, you will witness the growth of beautiful
    trees and Flowers. The first time you try to plant a tree it may not bear
    its maximum amount of fruit. Even if it's not a great crop you will gain
    experience and make future projects easier.
    
    Here is an alphabetical list of fertilizers with their correlating colors in
    parentheses:

    ============
    vii.	Sours				[srsp]
    ============
    
    Sours are the rejects of Piņata Island. They are very counter-produtive for your
    garden. They will fight with other Piņatas, steal eggs, keep new Piņatas from
    coming to your garden, eat Flowers and any other horrible thing you can think 
    of. There are two ways of ridding yourself of these bohersome creatures. Skip 
    the next paragraph to see them.
    
    One thing you notice with all sour Piņatas is the release of Sour Candy. Sour
    Piņatas all make their mark on your garden by leaving this particularly
    harmful substance behind them. If your Piņatas eat it then they will become
    either sick or enraged. It is best to smash them as you see them. They aren't
    worth selling so don't worry about getting money for them.
    
    Temporary fix (not recommended): Whack them with your shovel. This doesn't
    really give you any benefits unless you just need to get a sour out of your
    garden immediately. If you can afford it then I suggest the permanent solution
    that is detailed below.
    
    Permanent Solution: Tame them. A tamed Piņata loses its sourness There are
    various ways of taming sour Piņatas as each species requires different
    treatment. 
    
    When you tame a certain species of sour Piņata, you will gain a section of the
    Tower of Sour. Each section of the tower represents the sour species that you
    have tamed. When these sections are lit up, no Piņata of the corresponding sour
    species will visit your garden. You can disable the sections as you please. 
    The Dragonache item will repel all sour Piņatas regardless of tower sections are
    in your possession.
    
    Here is an alphabetical listing of sour Piņatas and their unique

    ============
    viii.	Explanation of Experience	[xplz]
    ============
    
    The success and growth of your garden is determined primarily by experience
    petals. You receive experience petals for accomplishing various tasks throughout
    the game (from sowing your first seed to romancing Piņatas). 
    
    Plants and Piņatas both have certain awards which are given to you as you grow
    and breed them. Each award comes with experience petals. As you obtain more
    experience petals, the level of your garden increases. Weeds and bought Piņatas
    do not offer as many experience petals or awards as do visiting Piņatas, 
    Flowers, Bushes and Trees.
    
    One problem you inevitably run into as you try to obtain every award for every
    species is that you must alter your garden's basic infrastructure on many
    occassions. Certain Piņatas are attracted only by certain plants, certain 
    amounts of water, etc. This is the entire fun of the game though. Don't concern
    yourself with leveling up too quickly. Focus on a couple species at a time.
    Your garden won't be as convoluted and you won't become frustrated with trying
    to maintain ten different species at once.
    
    The amount of experience you have is represented by the Flower in the upper
    right corner of your screen. Blue petals indicated experience that has been
    obtained and white Flowers display the amount of experience needed to level
    up.
    
    Plant Awards (Four total):
    1) Grow plant ZZZ.
    2) Fertilize plant ZZZ successfully. Plant ZZZ experiences growth.
    3) Fertilize plant ZZZ successfully. Plant ZZZ experiences growth.
    4) Fertilize plant ZZZ successfully. Plant ZZZ experiences growth.
    
    Piņata Awards (Seven total):
    1) The Piņata of Species XXX visits your garden.
    2) The Piņata of Species XXX becomes a resident in your garden.
    3) The Piņata of Species XXX romances with another Piņata.
    4) Seven Piņatas of Species XXX reside in your garden.
    5) Discover variant #1 of Species XXX.
    6) Discover variant #2 of Species XXX.
    7) Discover variant #3 of Species XXX.
    
    As you gain experience and level up, new species of Piņata and plants become
    available to you. You will also receive bonuses from Jardiniero. Occassionally,
    these bonuses will result in little more than a rank change. Sometimes, however,
    you will be able to upgrade the strength of your shovel.

    ix.	Boost Your Funds		[byfb]
    ============
    
    Chocolate Coins are just as important (if not moreso) than expereince petals.
    With Chocolate Coins you will be able to purchase seeds for your garden,
    improved garden items and even Piņatas.
    
    There are a couple different ways to improve your finances in Viva Piņata. I'll
    talk about them and their effectiveness in this sections.
    
    1) You'll get your first Chocolate Coin in this game by smashing all the pieces
    of trash in your garden at the beginning. It's enough to get you going, but you
    will need to find better ways to make money.
    
    2) Romance your Piņatas. You will be able to gain a small amount of coins 
    through breeding your Piņatas. Mazes will have at least 20 Chocolate Coins 
    every time. Be aware that if you don't finish them then you won't be able keep 
    anything you collected. Don't forget to check boxes, look on the outside of 
    mazes, etc. More complex mazes offer more coins but that really doesn't help 
    because it becomes harder to collect those coins in the first place. Besides, 
    there are better ways of earning Chocolate Coins.
    
    3) Put your Piņatas on the market. This is probably the best way to make money
    early on. After you have earned all seven awards for a certain species, sell
    them all. Sell the house as well. They serve you no purpose after that...unless
    of course the fourth method applies to them.
    
    4) Exploit your Piņatas' production. Some Piņatas will produce certain resources
    which can be collected and sold. You can do this manually or by hiring a
    Gatherling to automate this action.
    
    5) Exploit your plants' production. You can sell the produce of some fruit-
    bearing trees for some easy cash (i.e. Apples from Apple Trees). As with the 
    above method, Gatherlings will automatically collect fruits in order to sell
    them.
    
    6) Build the mine. I know it's expensive. 16000 Chocolate Coins, I think?
    Anyway, employ the talents of Diggerlings so that they can mine precious items
    for you. Gatherlings will sell anything that can't go back into the ground
    to improve your garden.
    
    7) Plant a Gem Tree. Gatherlings will collect their gems and put them on the
    market automatically. You will have Chocolate Coins flowing out of your ears.
    This is the best and easiest way to make money, but it may not be available
    to you if you are still early in the game. The seeds cost 238 Chocolate Coins
    after all.

    x.	Piņatas			[plls]
    ============
    
    a. Happiness			[hppn]
    
    After you've learned the basics of Viva Piņata, Leafos will give you a tutorial
    about happiness. To see how happy a Piņata is, highlight it with your cursor.
    A circle shall appear towards the lower part of your screen surrounded by
    blue and reddish-brown triangles. Naturally, it will become a goal of yours to
    see that all of your Piņatas remain happy. There are a few things you can do to
    make sure that happens.
    
    Things NOT To Do:
    1) Don't let your Piņata fall ill. Keep it away from unhealthy weeds and 
    	sour candy.
    2) Don't let other Piņatas attack it. You can keep this from happening by 
    	selling	rival species or hitting its opposition with your shovel.
    3) Don't ignore it. Piņatas who are always doing their own thing seem to lose
    	happiness as time goes on.
    4) Don't beat it with your shovel. This is very hard to do by accident as Rare
    	Ltd. made sure that your "pound" animation stops if a Piņata walks in
    	front of you. If you press A again, you can hit it. It has negative
    	mental effects though. ;_;
    
    Things You Should Do:
    1) Happy sweets will temporarily boost your Piņata's happiness.
    2) Build it a house. Buy one from Willy Builder.
    3) Romance it. Who doesn't love romance? The Piņata receives a happiness boost
    	almost immediately and another one when its egg hatches.
    
    To be honest, I don't think happiness plays a big role in Viva Piņata. I have 
    heard people say that their Piņatas ran away when they became depressed. It
    has never happened to me (though I made an effort to keep my Piņatas happy).

    xi.	Piņata Island			[pirz]
    ============
    
    The village on Piņata Island has everything you need. The unique arrangement of
    characters will provide you with a variety of services with which to improve
    your garden.
    
    a. Costolot's Store		[cgsc]
    
    Lottie is the manager of this general store. Being a general store, she sells
    you items of all types (though not always politely). This is also a good place
    to sell anything that you don't want (including Piņatas, plants, etc). Here is
    a list of everything you can buy at Costolot's (exluding fertilizer which is
    listed in its own section elsewhere in the FAQ). For fertilizer prices, press
    control + F to find "frtl". Seeds are also not listed here, but this is where
    you can buy seeds. For more information about seeds, see the plants section.
    Control + F "plvt" for Plant Varieties. 
    
    Sweet candies induce the specified effect. Happy sweets increase happiness
    and Romance sweets help Piņatas get their funk on.

    b. Ivor Bargain			[ibgn]
    
    Leafos will warn you about Ivor Beggar. Her warnings don't really mean anything
    as far as I can tell. Offer him 1000 Chocolate Coins to begin with and he will
    open up this shop later in the game. He changes his name as well. Wouldn't you
    if your last name were Beggar? His store will prove useful to you, though his
    selection is not quite as large as Lottie's.

    c. Arfur's Inn			[rfri]
    
    Arfur is the owner of the inn, which is where you can employ cheap labor to
    help maintain your garden. To facilitate this help, you may have to construct
    a helper's house in your garden so that they can maximize their work time.
    Helpers work at certain times. Their hours and conditions are placed somewhere
    in your garden for them to come by and examine. Once they do this, they begin
    working for you.
    
    Earn an easy achievement by naming one of your helpers. Keep them happy by
    giving them Chocolate Coins (this isn't really necessary). What IS necessary
    is that you don't beat your helpers like they are step-children. Although
    smacking them with your shovel does generate some cash, your helpers will
    leave forever if they become depressed. Alternatively, they become sad if you
    ever fence them into an area so that they can't leave.
    
    You have the option of giving your employee the day off. To do so, highlight
    him with your cursor and press X. From this menu you will be able to terminate
    the employee's contract or just send him home until tomorrow.
    
    Helper		Price		Available at Level		Hours
    
    Sprinkling	440 CC			Lvl. 10			6am-4pm
    Description: These guys know how much water your plants need, though you may
    have to do some watering when they leave for the day. DON'T spray them with
    water and don't hire them if you already have the One Pour Wonder upgrade.
    
    Gatherling	924 CC			Lvl. 12			9am-4pm
    Description: Keep these guys happy. Don't spray them with water. If they start
    to hate you then they will begin keeping some of the stuff they collect to
    themselves. They can sometimes become a little annoying because they make
    gather produce that you are using to attract certain species of Piņata.
    
    Weedling	440 CC			Lvl. 14			8am-5pm
    Description: You have to manually show which weeds that you want the Weedling
    to take care of. These guys will not pick up any seeds when they are done. Do
    that yourself to keep the weeds from coming back.
    
    Watchling	1584 CC			Lvl. 16			3am-3pm
    								or 3pm-3am
    Description: Night Watchilng and Day Watchlings work separate hours. These guys
    will love you for giving them a day off and day Watchlings enjoy being watered.
    They attract Galagoogoo Piņatas and will even talk to each other if you have
    hired more than one. They keep Sour Piņatas and Ruffians at bay.
    
    Diggerling	2420 CC			Lvl. 26			7am-6pm
    Description: Diggerlings dig up whatever is in your mine. Spary them with 
    water but don't send them home.
    
    d. Gretchen Fetchem		[gtch]
    
    Gretchen Fetchem, as her name implies, tracks down Piņatas for you. For a price,
    she will hunt any species of Piņata that has been a resident in your garden at
    any point in time. Gretchen will offer you two services when you approach her:
    
    Standard Hunt: This service may take several days (at least more than one). Less
    common Piņatas will take longer to capture than species like Whirlms.
    
    Express Hunt: This is the more expensive option. Gretchen usually doesn't take
    longer than one day to bring you the Piņata that you are looking for. It will
    cost you twice the money as the standard hunt.
    
    When she has finally tracked down the Piņata you want, you will receive a
    notification from her. This is when you pay her. You also have the option
    of changing your mind. Don't make her waste her precious time though. You can't
    contact her while she is on the hunt. If she is gone for several days then
    she won't be available for that time. Of course, if you have encountered the
    species that you are looking for before she gets back then by all means have her
    release the Piņata that she caught.
    
    Her services are available at level 7. She can retrieve a Dragonache for free
    if you accidentally sent it away. She will automatically release a Piņata if you
    leave it with her for a few days.
    
    e. Willy Builder		[wllb]
    
    Willy is the odd-looking character who constructs homes for your Piņatas as well
    as a few buildings of various purposes. His services are available at level 2. 
    You will need to build the Piņata house for each species if you want to be able
    to have them take up residence in your garden and have them romance. Here are
    the buildings that Willy will construct for you:

    f. Post Office			[psto]
    
    You can access the Post Office from the main menu at Level 4. It is a neat
    addition to the game because it allows you to send Piņatas and garden items
    to your friends on Xbox Live. Buy a crate for one Chocolate Coin and pack it
    with whatever you wish. You can even send Chocolate Coins if you wish.
    
    While in the Post Office, press the X button to bring up the crates that you
    have received from friends. I don't really want to give out my gamertag but
    email me if you need something from me. I have pretty much everything that is
    available in the game. =P
    
    Be aware that if you don't accept a crate that a friend has sent you, it will
    disappear after a couple weeks. Crates will appear in the recipient's garden
    after you have sent them.
    
    
    How to Load a Crate:
    1) Go to the Post Office via the main menu.
    2) Buy a crate for one Chocolate Coin.
    3) Press the Y button to proceed to the packing screen. Highlight whatever you
    want to send (helpers, Piņatas, fences, seeds, etc). Press Y to pack that item
    into the crate. Press the B button when you are finished with everything.
    4) Press the X button once more to bring up the menu. Add Chocolate Coins or
    a message to your crate. Select a gamertag from your friend's list and it will
    send.
    
    
    g. Paper Pets			[pptr]
    
    Miss Petula offers a variety of Piņata and Piņata accessories, some of which are
    exclusive to her shop. Accessories offer various unique effects for your
    Piņatas. You even have the option to send accessories to your friends via
    Xbox Live. 
    
    Accessories increase Piņata happiness and can satisfy certain romance
    requirements. Other accessories, like the Keeper Hat, help your Piņatas produce
    a certain resource. Forgive me for not listing the levels at which these
    accessories are available. I hate incomplete lists so I left that column out.
    
    Accessories are lost of the Piņata who is wearing them is eaten. Changing its
    variant or sending it through Xbox Live will not affect the accessory.

    h. Bart's Exchange		[brte]
    
    Bart will set up his shop at Level 9 and will be able to transform a variety of
    items for you. When you approach him, you have the option to buy one of three
    tickets. Bronze tickets are the cheapest and offer a 25% success rate. Silver
    tickets have a 50/50 chance of successful tinkering. Gold tickets are the most
    expensive and never fail.
    
    An unsuccessful tinkering results in the destruction of whatever item you were
    trying to transform. Gold tickets should be your primary option. Tinkered items
    can help fulfill romance and variant requirements. Here is what Bart has to

    i. Doc Patchingo		[dcpg]
    
    Doc Patchingo is the friendly neighborhood verterinarian. You encounter him
    the first time one of your residential Piņatas becomes sick. His services are
    free the first time around. He is available at every hour of the day. You can
    find him in the village menu or by highlighting a sick Piņata and pressing the
    A button.
    
    How does your Piņata become sick?
    1) Is beaten up by another Piņata.
    2) Feed it weeds.
    3) Has been beaten with your shovel (shame on you).
    4) Becomes cramped up. Did you fence it in? See above condescending remark.
    5) Eats a sour candy (left by Ruffians or sour Piņatas).
    
    Dastardos will come to attack your Piņata if it has been sick for a while. 
    To have Doc Patchingo heal an ill Piņata, it will cost 1/10th of that Piņata's
    base value. This means that more common Piņatas like Whirlms won't cost you
    much to fix. Rarer Piņatas have higher hospital bills.
    
    
    ============
    xii.	FAQ Section			[ftqs]
    ============
    
    Q:	Why won't species ZZZ visit my garden?
    A:	Make sure that you have all the appearance requirements for the species
    	fulfilled. If you do, then give it some time. Remember that if you 
    	already have two Piņatas of a certain species then you will receive
    	no more visits from wild Piņatas of that species. I suggest breeding.
    
    Q:	Why did my Piņata run away?
    A:	It was probably too sad. Good job not feeding it or beating it with
    	a shovel or whatever you did.
    
    Q:	The conditions are right. Why can't I romance these Piņatas?
    A:	You probably have too many of that species in your garden. Sell some
    	and see if that works.
    
    Q:	How do I call my Piņatas out of their houses?
    A:	Tap their houses with your shovel by presseing the X button. Don't hit
    	it with the A button or risk damaging the house. They might not come
    	out at night if they are sleeping.
    
    Q:	How do I keep this sour Piņata from ruining my garden?
    A:	Tame it or hit it with your shovel until it leaves. Search code "srsp" 
    	for more information. Remember to clear out any sour candies that it
    	leaves behind by whacking them with your shovel.
    
    Q:	How do I obtain a Pigxie?
    A:	Have Willy Builder construct the Mystery House. Now have a Swanana and
    	a Rashberry romance each other. That will result in a Pigxie egg.
    
    Q:	Why won't Lottie let me purchase this item from Costolot's?
    A:	You may have the maximum amount of that item already in your inventory.
    	Assuming that you have the necessary amount of Chocolate Coins...
    
    Q: 	Why is my Piņata sick?
    A:	See the section about Doc Patchingo. Search code "dcpg".
    
    Q:	How do I move a Piņata house?
    A:	After you have told Willy Builder where you want it, it isn't possible
    	to change its location.
    
    Q:	How do I get a Dragonache?
    A:	Have Willy Builder construct a mine for 16500 Chocolate Coins. Hire a
    	Diggerling to help you reap the mine's benefits. Eventually you will
    	obtain an unbreakable egg. Buy a Cluckles or use one that you already
    	have to walk over to the egg. The egg will hatch a baby Dragonache.
    	Feed the Dragonache a bottle of Milk, a Redhott, a Salamango, a
    	Dragumfly and a Snapdragon Flower. The baby Dragonache will form a 
    	cocoon and then emerge as an adult. See the Dragonache section under 
    	Piņata listings for more details.
    
    Q:	How do I keep my Piņatas from fighting?
    A:	It may be a natural tendency of that species. Some species just don't
    	get along with other species. Having the Red Eye Rainbow in your 
    	garden will reduce the number of fights. Make sure to keep your Piņatas
    	happy by building their houses, feeding them candy, etc.
