When the sun is shining, the waves are lapping, and the breeze is gentle, there’s no better place to be than Poi’s Juice Joint, serving up cool fruit smoothies to thirsty surfers.
DUDE, WHERE’S THE JUICE?
When it’s open — and it’s not always open, because they’re on what’s called “Island Time” — you’ll find Poi’s Juice Joint in the lower left of your game screen:
TOTALLY FOUND IT! NOW WHAT?
Well, the first thing you’ll want to do is take a look at the scene. You’ve got three Mini-Tiki customers, decked out in some crazy threads, all wanting you to serve them up a sweet, tasty fruit smoothie. You can see how many of which fruits you’ll need to create their smoothie. And you’ll see below them what you’ll be rewarded with once you do.
First things first, you’ve got to secure some sweet, tangy fruits! And you know that there’s only way to do that – play some games! So tap the PLAY button and get started:
WHOA! WHAT’S UP WITH ALL THE TRAPPED CARDS?
Nobody said serving up the juice was going to be easy. This is what your card tableau looks like:
And yup – there are no Trap Torches anywhere in the vicinity (the ashes get into the smoothies causing them to lose their fruity essence). So, you’ve got to free up the cards from their traps before you can play them.
Once you’ve played the game, you’ll see what fruits you’ve collected:
Now, when you go back to the Juice Joint, you can tap the “Inventory Cooler” to see what fruits you have to make the smoothies. And if you have enough to serve one or more of your customers, you’ll see that the “Serve” button is highlighted in green and ready to go:
SERVES UP! LET’S MAKE SOME SMOOTHIES!
Once you’ve collected enough fruit, you’re ready to get blending! If you have enough fruit to serve more than one customer, just remember you don’t know who got there first, and since everyone knows that we’re on “Island Time,” you can serve whomever you want in whatever order you want. They won’t be offended. Thirsty, perhaps, but offended, no.
Just tap the “SERVE” button above whichever Mini-Tiki you choose, and voila! The smoothie is made, your customer is served, your hands remain surprisingly clean, and you’ve been rewarded:
YOU’VE SERVED YOUR FIRST CUSTOMER! NOW IT’S BACK TO WORK!
You’ve got juice to serve, and the customers are waiting! On each drink ticket, you’ll see one of three levels of difficulty: Easy, Medium and Hard. To check your progress, tap the “PRIZES” icon in the lower right corner of your game screen, so you can see how many customers you’ve served, and how many more you need to serve to win the Grand Prize. You can also see how many drink cards you have left to serve, and their difficulty level:
As you near the end of your shift, you’ll notice you have fewer customers, and less time to serve them! Your shift is nearly over:
And when it is? Well… first you’ll collect the rewards for all you’ve done:
And then it’s time to close up shop…
….until NEXT TIME!
