General information

The General Store provides the player with extra boosts and upgrades in exchange for Shiny. This building is already present in your base when Backyard Monsters is being played for the first time and only needs to be built if it has been recycled for resources earlier.

The "close enough" building speed-up, if there is less than five minutes left, may be "purchased" without using Shiny. In addition, totem poles might be found in the General Store if they have not been placed in the yard but have been earned or "lost".

Trivia

  • Even if the General Store is destroyed, it will not affect the store at Inferno.
  • The General Store was constructed using a dice, ice cream sticks, and thumbtacks.
  • Once there was an item under the "Resources" tab where you'd purchase "Musk" for the Wild Monster Baiter. This was removed because players now have unlimited musk.
  • When a monster buff is purchased from the monster section, all your monster and your champion(s) will appear with Gold, Blue or red outlines respectively, depending on what you have purchased. If more than one type of this are purchased, different types of outline colors will appear instead.
  • There is no need to build a store at inferno, just press the Store near the buildings tab.
  • Daily, Weekly, and Ultimate Protection protects against both player and wild monster attacks.
  • Recycling the General Store will disable the 'Store' icon, preventing you from purchasing any of the items in there.
  • If the General Store has less than 50% health, you are not able to use the "Close Enough" Speed-Up. However this doesn't matter as it takes only a few seconds to repair if destroyed.
