Mayonnaise Only Challenge in Stardew Valley 1.6

The Mayonnaise only challenge was developed by Reddit user Halollet. Their love of Mayo becoming drinkable, as well as the new Meadowland Farm Layout, lead to the creation of this egg-cellent challenge. For those who’ve mastered all there is to do in Stardew Valley, this can be a new way to experience the game.

While the rules are well thought out, Halollet hasn’t actually attempted to complete it themselves. However, it’s entirely possible to complete while making bank.

Mayonnaise Only Challenge Rules

Like all challenges, there are specific rules that need to followed. This requires a new run, since you’ll be playing on the Meadowland farm. Don’t worry though, this layout gives you a boost at the start of the game, especially when it comes to getting Mayo.
