    Pink team here. On day three looking for the egg. I really wouldn't be that upset if I didn't find but c'mon, I need baskets. :(

    We could test different approaches.

    I had gone five days, tappety tap tapping.

    This morning, I did the zapping all around my town, then switched to xray mode to find the sneaky ones. Saw a purple one hiding behind the Kwik-E-Mart. Switched back to zap mode, shouted "Gotcha, you little bugger!" And out came the Faberg? egg. Actually, I didn't use the word "bugger". I used a similar-sounding but Very Very bad word. So " bugger" may not work. Also, you need to shout it with a bit of energy behind it. And if you have a cat, let me know if yours looks at you weird.

    I've tapped, I've zapped, I've definitely screamed at the bunnies. I haven't yet done so around the cat. Hmmm.

    Just for clarification. Will it announce when you receive the egg or will we be needing to check our inventory regularly like the baskets?

    I tried to recognize a pattern in the color of the bunnies and the eggs. :shock:

    (If that works for you, let us know. Animal Shelters around the globe will be inundated with people, babbling about bunnies and Faberg? eggs and demanding to adopt a cat so they "can start getting baskets again". And if enough of them mention Witch Marge, we could trend on Twitter. :)

    BIG announcement screen. Similar to the Level Up screens.

    Common colour is blue, I won the egg less than a minute after completing the quest! :-D

    Maybe it was half a minute... ;-)

    Maybe it was a quarter of a minute... :-P

    ... Anybody else notice that the word "eighth" has four consonants in a row? (Maximbarnes, I thought I sent you to your room.)

    my common colour is blue and it took 2 days after completing the quest to find the egg. The good news is I got 2 baskets within the space of a few hours after finding it, the bad news is they've dried up again and I have the feeling that's all I'm getting for a while!

    *tiptoes in concealing her Faberg? Egg in a brown paper bag*

    This is my experience exactly, juliet603. 2 baskets straight away, since then, nowt. I wonder if anyone, Egg or Eggless, is getting baskets at a decent rate now.

    *tiptoes out again*

    Heh.

    Well, eggless essentially means basketless. Bummer that even after finding it the baskets aren't very forthcoming :/

    Got the egg and a blue basket yesterday, got this pink today. I almost didn't notice it, it was covered in eggs.

    Probability may be the same, cause this is way faster than I was getting them during the quests.
