The Clucking Machine: Clues and Clarification!
(For those who are somehow not yet aware, the game itself is explained here.)
GG fellas, but some of you are lagging a bit and barking up the wrong trees for the hidden golden eggs. They say to leave no stone unturned, but some of you are practically flipping our desks. Yes, it is the principle of hunting, but you've broken us a bit so we're ready to give you some tips, Riddler - style.
Submitting an FML that talks about eggs or Easter (or anything else) will NOT win you an egg. It does nothing more than make the moderators grumble (not just us, but regular users too). *insert shameless plug for the moderation page / rankings* Moderating is fun! Woohoo!
If you don't have the FML app, download it and log in. You'll get 50 eggs just like that! Yeah, seriously. If you have it already, just log out and then log back in. Boom: 50 eggs for you too. Magical, right? (Thing: Don't forget that your baskets max out at 100 eggs! It may be unwise to collect the app eggs without cashing in some of your surplus first.)
The Chicken Radar will now be less responsive because y'all are stealing that hen at mind-blowing speed. Wave goodbye to the profile picture of the chicken... It's gone now, so stealing from other players will be trickier. You'll have to work a bit more to find out who's got a chicken (by spotting the "steal the chicken" button on their profile, for example). An extra tip: as the chicken lays eggs on the hour, it's better to nab it at 3:59 than at 16:01!
For the rest, the clues are too easy. Random even. We'll follow-up with the fact that we're not necessarily at the top since there are no photos of when we partied this weekend for one of our birthdays. That's not the way we're going to get a badge, though. We'll have to go read the rules again.
Score-Based Daily Bonus Eggs
As the competition goes on and scores climb higher and higher, the bonus eggs dry up. For those who aren't at the tippy top, that kind of sucks. For that, Fleox is again upping the stakes. Pleased? Go hug him! Displeased? Go suck an egg. (I'm kidding, of course. I just wanted an excuse to use that phrase.) Anyway, the new scale is as follows:
- If you have between 0 and 10,000 points, you get 30 eggs.
- If you have between 10,000 and 20,000 points, you get 15 eggs.
- If you have more than 20,000 points, you get 0 eggs. Nothing. Nada. Sorrynotsorry.
As for the winners, everything will be announced at the end of the game. Be patient, friends. We're giving out a mug and gift card each day along with everything else, so we're not publishing a daily list. Ain't nobody got time for that. All we be revealed in the end!
That's it for the game news of the day. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask below!
PS: Fleox says it's only possible to get 2 of the 10 golden eggs through the app. Have you found this to be true? I'm usually on desktop myself. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
