Can't find an egg

Yeah! I have 3 I can't find. And my town isn't even that big.

I used to have 4 but found one today, was so happy. Still pissed that I can't find the other 3..

    Try turning off houses, characters and decorations and looking for the greyed out square that is usually underneath eggs.
    Or just go into whacking mode and start tapping randomly. I've found a couple of hidden ones that way.

    I have one phantom egg that I can't find either.

    Went into edit mode and blanked out buildings - none there. Blanked out decorations - didn't see anything. Went into tapping mode and tapped everything. Still can't find it. It's making me nuts.

    I had three eggs which I couldn't find. After hard two days of searching I've found two of them so one more left... And today I've got 2 which I can't find anymore! Why does somebody do this?! :x

    One egg? I can't find 27 eggs! I think I was left a total of 29 eggs if my calculations are correct. It's ok though, I will gladly work for my eggs as long as you keep leaving them, whoever you are. A lot of blind tapping is involved but I've discovered a few already before my battery died. (I probably wouldn't still be pissed at this event so much if my battery would just not die so quickly.)

    You have to examine everything while greyed out carefully! It took me a while to find two eggs but eventually I took my time and found them.

    If you blank out the decorations...you also blank out the eggs (at least i think thats the case) so if someone has hid an egg behind a decoration, you might not be able to see it using that method.

    Hence why you take your time examining everywhere carefully and slowly so you don't miss it!

    Yeah some friends like to hide eggs technically making it a "egg hunt" lol I guess its part of the game though.

    A good technique that I use is to highlight a building and move it around, sometimes you'll find them (i.e. hidden behind the Simpsons house)

    I have 16 little hidden eggs somewhere and I moved a bunch of buildings with no luck ...

    Curse the friends I have that hide eggs!!!

    LOL j/k even a hidden egg is appreciated. Anytime someone donates eggs is a plus. :D

    Just tap every hidden area until something goes "crunch"

    May actually be quicker than the method of hiding buildings and decorations and hunting for the greyed -out square.

    I spent a couple of days searching for the missing egg. I grayed out everything I could, zoomed in and still couldn't find it. I finally started moving buildings. I found it behind the lights of the Duff Stadium. I didn't see it when the stadium was grayed out because it was the same shape as the lights. Hope this helps.
