Egghunt 2017

Post by Knuseron » April 16th, 2017, 2:32 am

And with the Easter time upon us, here comes a fairly known tradition of Egghunt, where you have to go and find eggs hidden around the site (anywhere except the forums).

However there is a catch, you won't be able to find all the eggs immediately. We've got special eggs that are not only hidden at specific places on the site, but also in time! Meaning, that, starting noon today (server time) you will be able to find one egg every hour.

To clear this out and as an example:
From 12:00 to 13:00 (or 1pm) you can find an egg hidden in lower right corner of the header
From 13:00 (1pm) to 14:00 (2pm) there will be another egg displayed, say at the bottom of page while viewing say GTS
So on and so forth ..

There are total of 6 different types eggs to find and 48 eggs total have been hidden (you can find more than one of one type of egg).
How many eggs can you find?
In addition to this, from now and for the next 3 days (until midnight from 18th to 19th), while playing Crops (any click is eligible to be the lucky one) and Hangman (upon successfully solving the puzzle), you can win up to 5 special promotional adopts in each game!

Look sharp and good luck everyone!

I think something may be wrong-- I have won many many hangman games so it looks like chances of winning anything is still the old way which is very slim. Also could you please decrease wait time for crops! It sometime s takes a week to win anything there with all those squares

It does say 'any click is eligible' for a win on the crops so you don't necessarily have to find the fossil to get a chance for the Moltres. Though, unless you don't sleep the 3hr wait time means you'll only get about 15 or less clicks to try and get a win which isn't great unless the odds to win something are very high ^^;

The hangman one isn't a problem though. You can blow through so many of those games pretty easy :D Just throw out all the common letters. Though I'm a hobbiest writer so perhaps figuring out the final word is a bit easy for me ^^; Still though, hangman winning rates aren't really a problem. However, are you guaranteed a Chicken Zapdos anytime you win? I won 3 and then just stopped getting them and have only gotten normal pokémon for the last couple times it's come up. If it's a mixed chance of getting the special promo & regular pokés that makes it a bit harder to get 'em, heh. Not that I'm complaining.

It seems to me that when there is event for hangman then the promo should be only prize and odds of winning one are turned up. If the crops is any square then without clues or directions the odds are really off kilter

Well it seems the odds for Moltres are pretty high as there's 3 or 4 people that have one. I got one on my 2nd click searching for the fossil. I don't think you have to 'find' the easter promo it's just a chance of winning one on a click while playing the game. So no worries :D

I'm sorry, there was meant to be a lower waiting time for crops. :) It has been lowered now.

The chances of getting a promo in both games are pretty high (think 10%+) it should not be a problem for next to anyone to get all 5 promos, still, you gotta work for it, can't give it up for free :) And you get to push some of your achievements in case you haven't completed them all yet ^^
As Tango mentioned, every single try on Crops can yield you a Moltres, I felt this was appropriate (with egghunt and all).

Question. Is Match one of the viable games one can play to win a promo? Because I don't want to play the triple RNG game anymore in Hangman. I lost count of how many games I had to win just to get cursed with a Hitmonchan.
Spoiler for more adopts inside:

No, only Crops and Hangman have the Easter promos in them, one in each.

The night of hunt is here! You have found a total of 1 eggs. For every 6 eggs found, a special adopt joins your crew.
