Roast up a chocolatey storm at the Cocoa Company!

Take charge of this burgeoning business

Chocolate? YES PLEASE.Chocolate? YES PLEASE.

Like all up-and-coming towns, Smeet City is currently experiencing a wave of gentrification. Lots of formerly rundown areas are now filled with trendy cafes, restaurants and bars, whilst the streets are filled with young hipsters riding everywhere on fixie bikes and scooters. I even spotted one bloke wearing a Game Boy as a necklace. That’s taking new 'fashions' a bit too far, if you ask me, but each to his own and all that…

Anyway, the crown jewel amongst these new businesses is an awesome little chocolate shop – the Cocoa Company! Set up by two brothers from New Jersey who arrived in Smeet City last year, it’s become staggeringly popular in a really short space of time!

Now, however, the founders are returning home to embark on a new career in a Bruce Springsteen tribute band (don’t ask me) and they’ve asked you to run the Cocoa Company in their absence! You need to manage the whole process, roasting the cocoa beans and mixing them in with butter, milk, vanilla and sugar to produce the Cocoa Company’s famous three styles of chocolate – White, Milk and Dark! YUM.

There are also a few key time-limited shipments that you need to complete by 28.02.2018 if you want the Cocoa Company to reach its full earning potential. Which would probably be a good thing for the New Jersey guys, to be honest, as I don’t really see their new career choice panning out too well.

One last thing to remember…your job is to MAKE chocolate, not to TASTE chocolate. So no finger-dipping - we’re watching you, Smeeters!

The Mystery Admin presents...Winter Olympic Fever!

Welcome to a new blog from one of your Smeet Admins...

Hey Smeeters!

Welcome to a new blog series, THE MYSTERY ADMIN. As the title suggests, I’m an admin here at Smeet. From time to time, I’m gonna bring you up-to-date with the goings-on in the Smeet Office here in Berlin. I’ll be annoying my esteemed colleagues by pestering them for their opinions on topical stuff whilst they try and get on with their work.

Which admin am I, you ask? Feel free to start guessing :)

Anyway, enough small talk. Let’s crack on with blog #1…

 

 

THE WINTER OLYMPICS

Most sporting events seem to happen a little too often for my liking. Football, for example, is literally on TV 24 hours a day. Which is why when the WINTER OLYMPICS come around, I get super-excited. FOUR YEARS is a helluva long time to wait, but it’s great fun watching all the crazy winter sports that get ignored the rest of the time. Five minutes spent watching Curling is enough to see that. For this reason, and to celebrate Pyeongchang 2018, your Mystery Admin conducted a brief survey in the Smeet Office to gauge just how darn excited everyone is about the whole thing!!!

No one told Wild Rover (EN) and Tuonela that just wearing ski goggles doesn’t make it a Winter Olympic sport…No one told Wild Rover (EN) and Tuonela that just wearing ski goggles doesn’t make it a Winter Olympic sport…

Things didn’t go well.

Seeing as I’m a part of the ‘Community Team’ here at Smeet, asking around the other admins was the obvious place to start. Some had no idea the Winter Olympics was even on. Some knew about the games, but didn’t care. One just offered me a cookie in the hope it would shut me up. But I’m persistent, I’m brave, and I needed an opinion. Any opinion. From anyone. Literally anyone. Also, I don’t really like cookies.

I turned elsewhere. The lack of inspiration from the admins was concerning me. Why did no one share my enthusiasm for the Women’s Bobsleigh? Why did no one have my passion for the Men’s Double Luge? And the Curling? WILL NO ONE THINK OF THE CURLING?!

We’ve never seen this guy do any actual work. Mmm...is frankysnow (FR) the Mystery Admin?We’ve never seen this guy do any actual work. Mmm...is frankysnow (FR) the Mystery Admin?

Anyway, in moments of dire need, where does one turn? To the Quality Assurance Department, of course! Why? Cos you are ASSURED of QUALITY answers. (See what I did there?).

Things went better. Big Sam, the head of QA, pretty much ignored me but did start telling a riveting tale about the time him and some mates created a 4-man bobsleigh down the biggest (and only) hill in Berlin using only frying pans. A classic feat of German engineering, no doubt. I felt better.

I still had no one to watch the Figure Skating with though. Hopping across to the Content Team, I knew this was my last chance. I targeted former TR admin Tuonela (no one really knows what he does these days, he's just kinda always here), who looked bored and in need of a new hobby. “DUDE, THE OLYMPICS IS WHAT YOU NEED!!!” I shouted, right up in his face.

Five minutes and one official warning for ‘breach of personal space’ from HR later, I slumped back at my desk. Alas, it wasn’t to be.

In the end, I gave up, although everyone did start taking pictures of themselves wearing a pair of ski goggles, which weirdly they seemed more eager to do than just answering my questions. This was about as close to Pyeongchang 2018 as the Smeet Office was gonna get. But you know what? I’ll take it.

Yours, THE MYSTERY ADMIN

Get all lovey-dovey in the Lover’s Garden!

Get in the mood for luuuuurve!Spruce it up and turn it into a lover's haven!Spruce it up and turn it into a lover's haven!

Valentine’s Day usually goes one of two ways. For those of you lucky enough to have a special someone, it can be a glorious and romantic celebration of your relationship. A special Valentine’s date or thoughtful Valentine’s gifts can be really effective at showing your partner how you really feel.

For those who are currently ‘single and ready to mingle’, however, Valentine’s Day is often a great excuse to go to the pub and loudly explain to anyone who will listen just how happy you are on your own. ‘I wouldn’t trade my INDEPENDENCE for anything or anyone!’, you shout. Five minutes later, you’re crying into your beer. Such is life.

So this week on Smeet we’ve brought you the ultimate romantic hang-out, the Lover’s Garden! The more eagle-eyed among you may well have noticed the new room bears a striking resemblance to the International Lover’s Garden public room, which arrived with aplomb on Smeet earlier this week. Well, this is kinda similar, sure, but your private room is looking a little more ragged. Looks like some improvements are in order before it’s ready to host any big romantic dates…

First up, a little bit of floral decoration never hurt anyone. Get to work on the Flower Boxes and you should be able to develop them into something spectacular by the time your partner arrives! It’s guaranteed to make your love BLOSSOM (pun most definitely intended). Then, we have the major project of the Lover’s Garden. Extract ‘Lover’s Love’ from the Fountain and the Pond (with some help of some exotic fish!) to build the perfect Garden Chapel. It really will complete the perfect setting for a Valentine’s date!

And after that? All you need to do is invite your special friend over, turn the charm up to a hundred and enjoy a beautiful evening!

Have fun, Smeeters!
