Some Basket And Other Event Information

So you can't exchange eggs in your own basket?
Basically you buy the baskets to help your friends along? I spent more than 20 donuts last Christmas to help some neighbors finish the wheel of doom...

    if you buy the baskets I think after a certain amount of time you can collect the eggs left to you?
    I'm not 100% sure, I just bought one of each color now

    So what do the colors mean??????????????????????????????

    Seriously, they must matter. WHICH color basket in MY town will get me pink eggs? (Because it seems like the answer should be "pink baskets" but pink baskets could also be giving my neighbors pink eggs and giving me blue ones! I've asked this over and over and no one seems to actually know.)

    I think you'd need the pink one in your town because the pink one is for neighbours to drop pink eggs into, so I'm assuming you get at least SOME of the eggs your neighbours picked up?
    I'm not sure so sorry if that's wrong, but that's my understanding of it

    Posted this in another thread

    Hers what I've gather so far.

    Instead of the wheel we have Easter Boxes for prizes, you collect pink and blue eggs from friends towns and by tapping bunnies in your own town.
    There's a pink egg box for pink eggs
    A blue egg box for blue eggs
    A gold egg box for gold eggs which you can only win from the pink and blue boxes
    Each box takes 500 eggs to play
    Each box has different prizes to win.
    You receive more pink eggs than blue eggs.
    The pink eggs give 100 gold eggs.
    The blue box gives 300 gold eggs.
    Just like the wheel you can buy eggs for a chance at a prize, or just earn them.
    Hope this helps.

    Easter baskets are for sharing eggs with you friends. You can buy them, or win them as a prize or get them from bunnies. I got a blue basket from a bunny.


    You don't have to buy egg baskets, and since blue eggs give you more gold eggs your are getting something good in the exchange. But you don't have to exchange eggs, you can tap the buildings as usual and collect eggs. I think this feature will come in to play a lot more once you've collected as many of the pink prizes you want.

    That would mean that the baskets generate eggs. :)
    The next question is: how many eggs can a basket hold?

    I said it's a switch effect. The guide shows:
    BLUE eggs into BLUE basket -> yields PINK eggs
    PINK eggs into PINK basket -> yields BLUE eggs

    Wow, this all sounds really complicated. I wonder why EA decided to give us 3 different currencies for this event? I guess we will figure it out in the next couple of days, when we have a guide on Easter.

    probably to make it harder for us to finish quickly and complain about lack of stuff
    and so then people might buy all three currencies with donuts = more money for EA

    I bought one of each basket.

    Once they were full, I was able to collect them. I don't remember the exact number. Maybe 300 each.
    After they are full an egg icon appeared and once tapped, you get the eggs and the basket disappears.

    The eggs somewhat help neighbors but it is more asking for charity.

    The baskets aren't really for charity. Different people have a different color egg as their "common" egg. Meaning as they tap bunnies and collect they will be gathering more of one than the other. If you have blue as common you'll want to hopefully trade those away in return for pink and vice versa.

    4 eggs (a trade in of 100 eggs each)= 400 when you collect and your basket goes away.

    the pink basket is for visitors to put 100pink eggs in and get 50 blue ones back and the blue box is for visitors to put 100 blue eggs in and get 50 pink eggs out, it doesn't say that in the build menu..........<snip>

    I'm still not really getting this bit. When does the trade actually happen? For eg: I went to a neighbour's town and their basker was asking me to trade 100 of my pink eggs and I would receive 50 blue eggs in return. I hadn't read the forum yet so didn't really understand it, but clicked anyway :) It removed 100 pink eggs from my tally straight away but I still only had 7 blue eggs. Does that mean I only get the 50 blue eggs when the other person collects? Seems a tad unfair that it deducted my pink eggs straight away... I'm a bit lost on this all.. :?
