Easter Egg Hunt Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

OK so I'm a big kid at heart and love taking part in Easter egg hunts! now I was looking in the event threads of every ocean and couldn't see one going on this weekend, so I was thinking I'd host one myself.

However I haven't hosted any events before now, I know it's probably too little notice for support from three rings. But I would like advice/ideas from pirates.

I have a few eggs that I have collected over the years, some standard palace shoppe/tournament eggs and some ringer eggs.

I govern an island but it's not possible to place furniture outside so I can't hide them on the island. I guess my flag's grandiose flag hall would probably work.

But here is where I'm struggling, I'm not very good with coming up with riddles/clues so should I just hide them around the hall and just let them find them all (pretty boring) or I would need some help from other pirates to come up with clues/riddles.

Any and all ideas welcome.

I don't think hiding them without riddles is boring, at all. You can be creative camouflaging the eggs with similar colors of furniture placed nearby, and using all the nooks and crannies of your flag hall. I'll gladly help make up clues if you decide you really need them, but I don't believe they are a must.
(I am also always happy to donate prizes, if you want some help there.)

I think limiting them to 1 building is not that great, especially if it is a building that is not open to the public (though you can throw a party).
It could be helpful to use an alt to become manager in shops and stalls to hide eggs there as well (alts so that checking the profile for manager stats doesn't help) or quit the managing job after placing the furniture.
