Notes: The Dances and Horse Races have a repeat cycle of about once every 15 minutes. You can repeat the Games-masters activities once every hour, and the Trickster quests are only repeatable about once every 8 hours. Games-master tasks are done by just using the item near them (Apple Tub, Pumpkin Patch, Chest of Geodes, Scroll Chest), and then bartering the resulting item to the Games-master for tokens (or a festival mask).
