Secret Achievements.png

Secret Achievements are achievements that will not appear in your almanac until you unlock them. This feature was added during the September 2013 game updates but not named until the following month.

To access the list of your secret achievements, look under the Achievements section in your game almanac. Then select the button that says "Secret" from the list of categories. This will show all the achievements you've unlocked in that section.

Achievement Counter

You will be able to see a running total of your unlocked achievements in the total bar at the top of the secret achievement section. However, you will be not be able to see how many are available to unlock - the game shows a question mark in place of the overall total number.

Secret achievements do not count towards your overall achievement total on the main achievement screen.

Types of Secret Achievements

There are several main types of activities you can do to earn these achievements. Participating in seasonal events via the HBM Fanpage and building seasonal decorations, fishing, and completing quests make up the most common ways to unlock them.

After the October 17, 2013 game update, many achievements previously in the 'quests' category were moved to the secret section. The developers renamed or removed many of the quests that led up to those achievements with the early game rewrite and so newer players will not be able to earn these achievements.

Seasonal achievements will only be available to complete during the part of the year that HBM was running the special season or event. Players who were unable to participate in those events will be unable to get those secret achievements. For example, the The Hallowed Achievement will only be available to players who can log in during All Hallows' Festival in late October. Similarly, the Decorator of Death! Achievement was only given to players who participated in the Homestead contest during All Hallows' Festival.
