I think Vinesweeper would be more popular if there were better rewards. Here is an idea of a new cosmetic reward:

Ring of sweeping

There are 8 tiers of the sweeping ring. It's a new reward from Vinesweeper, and the upgrades for it are rewards from there as well.

The ring works like Easter ring from 2006 Easter event. When worn, your character turns to a number. The number would look exactly like those used in the Vinesweeper minigame to show how many seeds are adjacent to the spot.

Ring of sweeping (tier 1) would turn your character to a blue spinning 1. Tier 2 ring would offer a choice to turn to 1 (blue) or 2 (green). Tier 8 ring would have all options from 1 to 8 accessible.

Reward point costs

With 99 farming, pro players are able to get about 37-38k points per hour on average. The most I have gotten is 40944 in one hour. Advanced players can consistently expect point rates of 35 000 per hour.

Based on that data, I suggest the following prices for the ring:

Ring tier - Upgrade cost in points/hours of gameplay - Total cost in points/hours of gameplay

Tier 1 - 17 500 points / 0.5 hours - 17 500 points / 0.5 hours
Tier 2 - 17 500 points / 0.5 hours - 35 000 points / 1 hour
Tier 3 - 35 000 points / 1 hour - 70 000 points / 2 hours
Tier 4 - 70 000 points / 2 hours - 140 000 points / 4 hours
Tier 5 - 105 000 points / 3 hours - 245 000 points / 7 hours
Tier 6 - 140 000 points / 4 hours - 385 000 points / 11 hours
Tier 7 - 175 000 points / 5 hours - 560 000 points / 16 hours
Tier 8 - 210 000 points / 6 hours - 770 000 points / 22 hours

Unlocking all numbers would cost 770k points. Player with 99 farming could achieve that in 22 hours of game play.

Anything else:

The ring would be untradeable.

A temporary farming boost equivalent to ring tear could be added! See also suggestions from other players in the post below!

Suggestions from players

Triviality said:
Love it. One small suggestion: how about, instead of a ring, you get a cosmetic effect, used from your wardrobe? For example, a few small light blue 1s hovering around your character for the lowest tier, much like you suggested with the ring.

maybe an additional grow speed enhancer. (Like a potion that skips a grown phase)

As much as I love cosmetic items, I think more people are interested in rewards that benefit them in skills or combat. Some people like myself would find fun in something like this, but most others will ignore it.

You get where i'm going with this? Some sort of special rewards other than cosmetics will make people rush in. Or else you just keep having a dead game like Trouble Brewing.

I wouldn't like to "force" people play it for the rewards, which usually happens when the rewards are very useful. I believe the numbers are a unique reward which would make the minigame more popular without forcing everyone to grind for the rewards.

But, the ring could have other rewards based on ring tier as well. What are your suggestions? :)

Edit: Oh, and Trouble Brewing cannot be soloed while Vinesweeper can. It wouldn't be equally dead.
