Easter Egg Hunt

From Mario Fan Games Galaxy Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Great MFGG Easter Egg Hunt was an event hosted by Not Mips in a temporary subforum in the General Chat. These subforums contain five Easter Egg forums, all of which requires a password in order to accessed, which can be found by solving three puzzles that belong to each one of the five eggs. These forums contained prizes, which are games on Steam. The first person to post in these forums will get the prize, unless if they already got a prize. The winners can decline the prize, if they either found a better prize, or they just don't want it. If a winner declines a prize, then the next person to post gets the prize instead. Anyone that has posted in these forums, will receive an Egg Hunter badge (or a Pro Egg Hunter badge, if they managed to access all five Easter Egg forums), regardless if they won a prize or not.

The first Easter Egg Hunt event spanned across 15 days, while the second Easter Egg Hunt spanned across 11 days. A new set of puzzles are revealed in each one of the first five days of the event.
