Hey there Hoppereenos. Bunny here. Well…BUNNIES EVERYWHERE!!! Lol.
I know…I am having FAR too much fun in this event. But getting great enjoyment out of it too. So, HELLO!!! You all having fun yet? Getting great enjoyment outta being able to Zap a Bunny? Come on now, I KNOW some of you are having fun doing it too. Lol.
In this post, I am gonna go into a LOT more detail on those Pink & Blue Easter Baskets. So get that plastic grass and those plastic eggs ready…
There is a HUGE reason we warned to not purchase them just yet. Here is why. We wanted you to completely understand just all the ins and outs of the game, how to collect eggs, etc before you started using those precious/hard to come by pink sprinkly things. Not only that, we wanted you to be well aware they are a ONE TIME USE ONLY item.
Yes, these quick way of getting 400 egg donations to your town disappear the moment you gather the eggs when they’re filled up. GONE! POOF!! So you will want to think VERY wisely and carefully before spending 10 of your precious donuts to get them.
First, let’s look at how they work in the game. It will be best to know if you are a BLUE or a PINK player. Not sure? Just check out this post Alissa did earlier. It explains it all.
If you are a BLUE player, you will gather mainly BLUE eggs as you progress through the event. (Notice the egg color in task and FIRST egg shown in line up at bottom.)
If you are a PINK player, you will gather mainly PINK eggs as you progress through the event. (Notice the egg color in task and FIRST egg shown in line up at bottom.)
So what does this have to do with the Easter Baskets? Well, the way I look at it is that you want as many of the eggs as you are NOT getting. That way you have more chances of getting the color box you need to get the additional prizes you want. Short and sweet… BLUE players will want to find a way to get PINK eggs while PINK players will want to find a way to get BLUE eggs. Making sense? Or did I lose you?
Just think of it as you want the OPPOSITE color baskets in your town then your player color as you will earn less of that color. (We will have a LOT more info on egg collection coming in our “Math” post. I suggest to wait until you read it tomorrow BEFORE you spend any more donuts. )
WARNING!!! VERY IMPORTANT!!!! With the new quick feature item placement that EA has now put into our games to make it easier, you need to make sure your CONFIRM DONUT SPEND is set to ON. If you don’t, a quick tapping finger could give you a ton of baskets in the blink of an eye. If you do have it on, it will ask you to check if to “Don’t Warn Me Again”. DON’T CHECK IT!! It will turn the Confirm Donut Spend back to OFF.
Give 100 of YOUR eggs. Get 50 of opposite color back from the game “bank” (NOT your neighbors stash).
K…now with that part out of the way. How do the Easter Baskets work? Well you go into your Items Menu (Hammer and Saw), over to the Easter Items Basket (or Homer Buddha), and locate the Easter Baskets for 10 donuts each. Tap on the color that you want (the color eggs you need most) and then get ready to place it in your town. Again…ONE TIME USE ONLY!!!
Once you find a spot and put it down, you will NOT be able to store it. The item is there to stay.
Now when your neighbors visit you or you visit your neighbors, you will see something like this if it is your first time visiting.
If you are looking for a neighbor that can help you by having the opposite color as you are, feel free to use our “EGGS-EXCHANGE” area to find the right neighbor for you.
There will be an icon in the top right corner that works similar to the Next Friend arrow buttons. If you click it, it will take you to the next available basket. So if you want to find a BLUE basket to put BLUE eggs in so you can get PINK ones back, you can keep hitting the NEXT BASKET icon in the top corner until it takes you to the one you want to fill.
As you can see, the icon above the basket tells you first what color of 100 of YOUR eggs you will put in and second what color of 50 eggs you will get back out. So if you want BLUE eggs back, find a PINK basket.
Here is what a BLUE IN – PINK OUT basket looks like.
So if you have 100 extra eggs you wanna swap for 50 of the opposite color, just keep an eye out for the “Next Basket” icon in the corner of your neighbors town and swap away.
NOTE: For those of you actually placing these…PLEASE KEEP COLORS SEPARATE! It is really difficult when you have two different color baskets stacked side by side for you neighbor to give you the RIGHT color they want to drop off. See keep your blues separate from your pinks please.
So what happens in YOUR town with the basket. Well each one can accept a total of 400 eggs, so as each 100 is dropped in…you will see one egg in there to represent it.
It is when you get to 4 eggs (400) that an egg icon will pop up above your basket. You click it and POOF, basket gone. Egg icon appears. You can tap it and it will collect to your 400 eggs, or you can just let the game collect it for you.
So is it worth buying these? That really comes down to just how many donuts you want to use up for this event. The baskets DO come for free from both random pop ups during Bunny Zapping…
Once you get one from the bunny tapping, it is placed into your inventory. So if you are tappin n zappin n just hoppin on by…you may want to check your inventory (lil brown cardboard box) now and then to see if you picked one up. You may have not even noticed it.
…as well as a Random prize in the Gold Boxes. After you win Hugs the Bunny, he will be replaced by a Blue Basket you can win. Shary Bobbins will be replaced by a Pink Basket you can win.
The event goes until May 13th, so plenty of time to wait and figure out if you want to use the baskets… unless you want it all RIGHT NOW!!! To me, the baskets are more there to help out your neighbors, but then you need the extra eggs to give them to only get half back. Weigh the options.
That’s about the jist of it all. What do YOU think? Worth spending 10 of your precious donuts on? FYI you can get MORE eggs in a crate with 15 donuts if you really just want to skip the whole…place, wait to be filled, collect stuff. So if it is instant you are going for or just one color in particular the 15 donuts may be a better option.
Until Next Time…
FLY MY PRETTIES!!!!
