Zybez RuneScape Help's Screenshot of a Leprechaun

Farmer Blinkin is in trouble! He needs your help to find seeds buried before the rabbits eat them.

To begin this mini game, locate a Tool Leprechaun, which can be found at every farming patch throughout the world of RuneScape. Right click the Tool Leprechaun and click "Teleport". Once inside, you may read the instruction signs near the portal or talk to Mrs. Winkin.

Upon first entrance of the area, you will receive 10 Flags.

3.0 - Advice and Tips

First of all, it is important to understand that if you do not like the game "Minesweeper", then this is not the mini game for you.

Much like Minesweeper, you need to look for mines, then flag them down. Think of mines as seeds, you want to flag them in the same method. To start off, climb over any one of the four stiles leading into the crops. Once in the patch, right click on any holes in the ground and hit "Inspect". Read what it says; if it says that you have found seeds, right click on the hole and hit "Flag".

If you inspect a hole and says that there are no seeds, right click and hit the "Dig" button. Once you do that, a number ranging from 1 to possibly even 8 will appear. When you discover numbers you earn points to match their collective value. Like in Minesweeper for example; you dig and a number "1" pops up, that means that there is one seed around the "1" see picture below:

As you can see, the "1" is all alone with 7 other holes around it, that means that one of the holes highlighted in red will have a seed under them. So inspect one of the holes. If you inspect the hole and you see that there are no seeds, dig there and another number will pop up. Unlike in normal Minesweeper, when you dig an area and find no numbers they are not given a value of 0. The numberless spots after digging indicate that no seeds are in the mounds around them, meaning that the holes highlighted in green will not have seeds in them. If you inspect the hole and you see that there is a seed there, flag it and a farmer will come and harvest it.

You may think that bunnies are cute, but they are not. They are very dangerous in this mini game. Once you "Flag" your hole, it attracts bunnies and farmers. You hope that the farmer gets to the flag before the bunny does or else you will lose points and the flag. (It's suggested that you bring around 10k because when you first start out, you will lose a few flags.) There are things that can be found by digging anywhere in the crop area that are called Ogleroots. If you use them with a bunny, it will stun the bunny for a while, then it will disappear; leaving just the farmer to give you points.
