Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Hay Day
Last Updated:

As you begin your journey into Hay Day you will be guided along by a friendly scarecrow. He will teach you the simple things in the game and make sure you get past Level 3 without any major issues.

For starters, there is a brief section where you are required to paint your buildings. You are able to paint your house by tapping it, then dragging the paint brush across it. This also applies to the other starting buildings in the game, so don't be afraid to give them a lick of paint. This will also remove the debris and muck that surrounds your buildings early on.

The scarecrow is your guide to getting started in Hay Day

Naming Your Farm:

During the tutorial you will be introduced to a new character paying a visit to your land. Tap him and you will be asked to input the name of your farm. This can be anything you like, but be aware that this is how other players will identify your farm, so nothing too ridiculous!

TIP: If you choose a name that you later regret, however, you are able to change it. Simply tap the settings menu by selecting the cog icon in the top left-hand corner of the screen, then choose 'Change Farm Name'.

Moving and Changing Objects:

You can alter, move and remove an object by tapping and holding it. Then, you can rotate it using the arrow signs, remove it by using the trash can icon, or move it around, simply by dragging it.

I think buying diamonds is ridiculous. There should be other ways to earn diamonds. I read about facebook (don't choose that) and chests to click on but I don't find any yet. There should be a way to use the coins for payment instead of diamonds. I will not pay for them.

You can' t make a postcard. The game does it for you when you click on the icon for the person who has helped rejuvenate your trees or helped fill your steamboat cargo.

You get cards in your mailbox by regrowing other people's plants and helping their boat orders. Most of the time when they send you a thank you card, it will also have a gift card.
