Truces are a great way to get our of a difficult combat situation, or to buy yourself time to recover between attacks.
For a truce to be effective, both players have to accept it. You can request a truce by clicking on the map room and finding the player you are in conflict with. Should they reject your offer, you have to wait 2 days before trying again. If they accept, it will last for 14 days.
When starting a new game, you are automatically protected from attacks by other players for 14 days - effectively a truce situation. Should you attack someone yourself, this will of course void the truce.
Finally, if your base is getting pummeled, or you are being constantly attacked, the game will often instate a period of protection to give you some respite.
To get shiny in Backyard Monsters, you can always just purchase them (with real money). Another way is to complete the offers that appear in game under 'get more shiny', such as filling in surveys or downloading certain things.
Another popular way to get shiny is to pick mushrooms - you usually get a proportion of these for every bunch picked.
If you throw Project X with the 10M Putty Rage from your catapult it will do the most damage. If you use the Monster Lab, Project X can be given the ability to release acid when it is killed damaging ALL the buildings around it.
