Spoiler alert! I am not even going to try to avoid spoilers. So be forewarned.
This walkthrough is for the iPad version of the game which has quite a few differences from the desktop version.
Stardew Valley is very flexible, so as you play the game your experiences will not be the same as mine. Once I am past the game basics, I will not be going step by step, but only recapping the action.
If you are looking just to get a particular question about the game answered. You can find just about every thing you need to know in the Wiki.
Once I had harvested my crops, I realized that I needed to get some seeds from the general store. I checked the Community Center bundle and saw what crops I needed. When Ot to the store, a cut scene was triggered.
Even with a lot of fishing and foraging the beach, I didn’t have enough gilder to buy the iridium rod. Heading back into town I triggered the cut scene with George.
When I woke up in the morning, I saw that my upgraded ax was ready, and that my coop was finished. Finishing the coup fulfilled one of the Journal challenges. My reward was 100g.
The reason I accelerated the improvements to the ax over the improvements to the other tools is because I wanted to remove a particular log. This log is located at the upper left hand corner of the forest south of the farm. It has to be removed so that your avatar can enter the secret forest.
After killing all the slime monsters, gathering all the fiddlehead ferns, and chopping all the large stumps, I headed back to the pond to do a little fishing.
The first order of business on the 7th day of summer was to watch the Queen of Sauce and add another recipe to my file. Then I headed out to do my chores.
The next few days were pretty uneventful, foraging, and running around in the mine. I did craft three tree taps, so that I can harvest maple syrup, pine tar, and oak resin, all of which are used in crafting.
Marnie, who lives south of my farm is the one you buy animals from. By the time I remembered that I needed to buy animals it was her day off. She takes two days off in a row, so I was hard pressed to remember to do it. Finally I wen to her farm and bought four chickens, two brown and two white.
While I was fishing I caught a treasure chest with another Dinosaur egg. Since I was already saving one to hatch, I gave that one museums. I recieved a huge plush bear to decorate my home with. It went into the storage box with all the paintings and statues I have no need for right now.
