1. INTRODUCTION
===============

I used to love Winnie the Pooh. Key word USED. Things change, and both KH and
KHII made me see how irritating this bloody wood is. Which is why I'm writing
this. I can only escape my fear by writing an FAQ about it. Also, I haven't
contributed for a while and this will be nice and short. :)

Seriously though, out of the sixteen questions a year asked to me about this
game, usually 52 percent of them include 100 Acre Wood in some way. The 
reason? Because some of it is pissing hard. And yet some of it is really easy.
It's easy because its all minigames...but its hard because its all minigames.
You know what I mean.

I mean, Square Enix could have involved some Heartless or something or at 
least killed off a character or something. Thats the problem with th...

(This rant did continue for about 15,345 characters, but I had to start 
writing so I stopped it there.)

About this version
------------------

Version 1.02 (05/02/07) - Another minor spellcheck, plus I changed my email
                          adress to the current one, added a note about
                          PayPal donation, and another two lines to the
		          thankees.

======================
2. ABOUT 100 ACRE WOOD 
======================

100 Acre wood is the twisted creation of A. A. Milne, and really did contain
some gems of characters. However, there was only one you could really relate
too, and he's been bloody taken out of the game. So you'll just have to
live with the characters included. 

Winnie the Pooh
---------------

Voted by Cosmopolitan magazine as the most unfortunante name ever. He is the
stout, slow, yellow(?) bear who is the main focus of the KH story. He seems
to only care about two things: honey and eating, most of honey. Altohugh a 
bit lacking upstairs, he can suddenly have burst of intelligence. Summed up
in one word? Dopey.

Rabbit
------

One of Pooh's friends, but always seems to be iritated by him in any way. In
fact, he seems to be just annoyed by default. He is pretty much the source
of all of Pooh's food, as he has his own allotment and seems to excrete his 
own honey.

Kanga and Roo
-------------

Apparently there's a clever connection with their names, but I've never found 
it. Kanga is a mild mannered mother with the patience of a bloomin' saint. 
She is the mother of Roo, who wants to bounce as much as Tigger and maybe as 
high. What a family.

Owl
---

A bird of wisdom and seemingly endless anecdotes. He is the brains behind this
whole operation. Altohugh I'm sure that his age would work out to about 163
in human terms.

Tigger
------

The lovable elastic-tailed tiger who loves to sing, although I think he'd be 
good at gangster rap. He loves to bounce. His hobbies include: bouncing, 
trampolining, and general merriment. He is Roo's mentor. 

Eeyore
------

One depressed donkey. Seems to see the black side of everything. Emos should
really put away all sharp objects when you first meet him.

Gopher
------

Digs holes and whistles where he says the letter 'S'. Sounds a bit like the 
guy off CNN. 

Sora
----

Unbelivieable as it may sound, Sora was not actually in A. A. Milne's story.
He pretty much fills in for Christopher Robin (not in this game) and leads
Pooh around by grabbing is featurless hand. (Seriously though, Pooh has no 
fingers).


The story in the books pretty much revolves around this wood which seems to be
able to house animals of any eco-system (tiger, bear, and kangaroo). It is set
in the various characters houses and the nearby wood, and in one instance the 
Spooky Cave.

The story in KHII is really a page turner. Sora returns to visit his old
friend Pooh after Merlin has recovered the book from somewhere. He goes in
meets Pooh, then, as seems to happening a lot in this game, time stops and
afterwards, Pooh has forgotton about everyone, incliding Sora. Plus, all of
the Torn pages are not there!

Now what?

=================
3. THE TORN PAGES
================= 

So all of the torn pages are missing. Plus, they found there way into chests.
But they are REALLY easy to find. You could just find them on your travels if
you are careful when searching for chests.

So here they be (not in chronological order):

Hollow Bastion - Crystal Fissure
Agrabah - Ruined Chamber (after Magic Carpet)
Land of Dragons - Throne Room
Pride Lands - Oasis
Disney Castle - Library

Not too hard. Some people wait till they've got all of the pages before going
to the book, however, I think you should do it one at a time. I couldn't
handle it all at once...

====================
4. THE MINIGAMES!!!!
====================

Horray! We must restore Pooh's memory through the power of minigames!

4.1 A Blustery Rescue
---------------------

Story:               Poor Piglet has been caught by the winds! Go and save him
                     before he is blown away, nad collect some honey as well. 

What to do:          Use the keyblade to break open the various objects to
                     recieve honey orbs. After a preset course, Piglet comes 
                     into the screen and you have to save him using Triangle.
                     If you are hit by any objects YOU MUST PRESS TRIANGLE TO
                     SAVE POOH BEFORE YOU CAN SCORE ANY MORE.

Scoring:             10 per small log  
                     400 per large log (4 hits)
                     1200 per hunny pot (3 hits)

Journal:             Finish with 18,000
My top:              19,010

High Scoring Tips:   The biggest tip is to make use of every tornado that 
                     comes, and wait until the screen is full before activating
                     them. This does require better reactions then you think, 
                     as getting hity by anything could ruin a high scoring run.
                     ALWAYS FAVOUR HUNNY POTS over everything, they have the
                     lowest point/hit ratio. For a pretty much guarenteed 
                     18,000, spot the secret tornado hidden behind the last
                     onslaught (where LOTS of stuff falls from above).

                     This was easily the hardest one for me, but the hidden
                     tornado above makes it a doddle.

4.2 Hunny Slider
----------------

Story:               Good ol' Pooh has gone an eaten all of Rabbits hunny, so
                     you must go out and get some more. 

What to do:          SLIDE! This is as simple as Jade Goody saying the 
                     alphabet. Use let and right to slide and hold square
                     to slide left and right faster. Whenever you see a red
                     balloon, PRESS TRIANGLE to gain an extra life. Same if 
                     you get hit by a log.

Scoring:             1 per small orb
                     5 per normal orb
                     10(?) per large orb

Journal:             Finish with 8,000
My top:              9,003

High Scoring Tips:   For extremely high scores, simply get every orb. This is
                     honestly a cakewalk, especially in the first two scenes
                     (forest and book-theme), slightly harder in the avalanche,
                     and quite impossible in the last bit unless you grabbed
                     Gopher. GOPHERS ARE NOT TRANSFERRABLE BETWEEN SCENES.

4.3 Balloon Bouncing
--------------------

Story:               Tigger and Roo want to do some bouncing, and Sora joins in
                     (This plotline is thickening...)

What to do:          Press traingle (or circle) at the right time to bounce, 
                     and then use the ballons to get higher and higher. 
                     Balloons become smaller when a combo finishes - you have
                     three chances for a high score.

Scoring:             This is a bloody pain. The scoring is NOT determined by
                     colours or size of balloon, it is done by the combo
                     count. Apart from the initial ballons (anything before
                     the first greens), which give 3 points each no matter what
                     the number of points scored per ballon increase when the
                     number of balloons popped in a combo inscreases.

                     (To rectify, a combo ends when you land back on the 
                     trampoline)

                     1-3 balloons hit: 15 points each
                     4-7 balloons hit: 25 points each
                     8-10 ballons hit: 35 points each
                     11-15 balloons hit: 40 points each
                     16-20 balloons hit: 50 points each
                     21-26 balloons hit: 60 points each
 
                     ...and so on in that vein. This looks confusing, so
                     here's an example.

                     Ater the inital layer (before the first green one) you 
                     get a combo of 22 balloons befroe hitting the ground. So, 
                     you get:
 
                     15 x 3 = 45 for the first 3 balloons (1, 2, and 3)
                     25 x 4 = 100 for the next 4 (4, 5, 6, and 7)
                     35 x 3 = 105 for the next 3 (8, 9 and 10)
                     40 x 4 = 200 for the next 5 (11, 12, 13, 14, 15)
                     50 x 4 = 250 for the next 5 (16, 17, 18, 19, 20)
                     60 x 2 = 120 for the next 2 (21, 22)

                     ...which equals 820. Email me and I'll give a better
                     explanation.

Journal:             Finish with 4,000
My top:              4,356 

High Scoring Tips:   Since scores are based on combos, you'll have to stay
                     in the air for as long as you can to net high scores. 
                     Also, DON'T BOUNCE TO THE BIGGEST BALLOON. Popping it
                     will take balloons out and make them smaller.

5.4 The Exposition
------------------

Story:               Pooh Bear has got lost in the 'maze' of the spooky cave.
                     Go with the group and find him.

What to do:          Comb the spooky cave and find Pooh. Just normal controls
                     here, use Triangle to calm the group down if the 
                     courage bar runs out.

Scoring:             Timed 

Journal:             Finish within 90 seconds (1:30)
My top:              83 seconds (1:23)

High Scoring Tips:   Just run straight for Pooh. However the 90 second aim can
                     be harder than it looks, as the lovely group behind you
                     can drag you back. Eeyore was giving me problems near the 
                     start. You'll know if you've lost them becuase you hear 
                     the incessent calling of 'Sora!' To stop this from 
                     happening, move a bit slower than usual, AND NEVER USE
                     QUICK RUN. Bees only take one hit to kill as well, don't
                     spend precious seconds comboing whne you can move on to
                     the next set.

                     More quick tips: jump when the ice starts to shine, to
                     avoid falling, and if you just keep running when you see a
                     boulder about to fall, you should just make it.

4.5 The Hunny Pot
-----------------

Story:               Le climax - Pooh has got his head stuck in a hunny pot
                     and you must help him get out of it!

What to do:          EASY. Press X to set the power and then press X to set
                     the direction. Obviously, higher power will acheive higher
                     scores. Kinda like the hammer throw.

Scoring:             Length (metres?)

Journal:             Finish with 8,000
My top:              8,100ish

High Scoring Tips:   It should be pretty easy to get full power, its the 
                     direction that really matters. Play around with it a bit
                     and you'll find that aiming straight forward will get
                     7500+, don't aim behind as you will probably hit the tree.
