Hello there Mat :D
I am not sure if you knew this allready, but that site is not official one but an enthusiastic one, created and running by this guy Piipou who answered you just now. If you find his info useful, please join me in the thread "Proposition for Pablo and the King" as I asked them to give us a link to both french and english PB wiki, so we can use it more easily as it contains very detailed user manual, especially for new players, as well as useful info for us all. :D

It is not clear what, if anything, are the rewards for achieving 1, 2, or 3 suns.

Apart from whatever those may be, I am not too enthused. This looks to work a lot like Tradefest, where we are left with a treehouse full of a whole lot of stuff that is demanded but never actually purchased and delivered. To make matters worse, the World Market always gets totally F'd up during these events.

I mean, if it is just going to operate like Tradefest in disguise, why bother?

Other flaws -

1. From the screenshots, there doesn't seem to be any way to dismiss the ridiculous orders.

2. Ridiculous orders - If we are stuck with nonsense like 3 fruitcakes in 3 1/2 hours, a lot of players are going to be discouraged and complaining. IMO requests should always be achievable, and that includes time for production of input components. The way they do it now always depend on having tons of inventory, which does not pose a significant challenge for advanced players yet becomes an impossible obstacle for lower level players. Basically, they manage the worst of both worlds.

In case you can't tell, I gave grown to hate Tradefest, so more Tradefest in disguise does not thrill me.

I completely get you what you are saying my concerns are constant Tradefest at all times whether mini or normal and mini during normal Tradefest it kind like an overload of Tradefests daily just a little to much at one time, but is a beta testing thing when or if it comes out ,

Well, I applaud the general idea of exploring new mini games, esp if they become alternatives to Tradefest in some months. I would like to see it involve something other than time pressure challenges that keep me from doing other parts of the game like the adventure ship.

I did enjoy the little riddle event and the book challenges. They added diversion/ dimension without totally disrupting the game.
