A festive new hunting location has opened for the season! Bundle up and visit the North Pole for some fun holiday hunting.
To travel to the North Pole, you will need a Travel Ticket. (These are one-way tickets, so you’ll need another one to get back to Upstate New Yolk.)
Note: If you unlocked Unlimited Travel during our Cyber Monday sale, you will be free to travel between locations as often as you’d like without needing to worry about spending tickets!
To start your journey, click on the travel icon on your game page to pull up the travel screen.
Need more Travel Tickets? You can buy them in the Hatchlings Marketplace. Also, be sure to like our Facebook page—we might do some giveaways during the month!
At the North Pole, eggs snow down from the sky! To collect them, you catch the eggs with your mitten.
Plan ahead—you can only catch the eggs when they reach your mitten. Keep an eye on the sky, and make sure your mitten is in position to catch the eggs you want. Move your mitten back and forth by moving your mouse (or by dragging your finger, if you’re playing on a touchscreen device).
Need a break? Press the ornament in the top right of the screen to stop the snow (or, press “spacebar” as a shortcut). Any eggs on the screen when you pause will finish their descent, but the snow will stop after that. To resume hunting, press the ornament (or “spacebar”) again.
When you catch an egg, it’ll be placed in your bag. Inside your bag, there’s a tag that keeps track of how many eggs you’ve collected. At any time, click the tag to view, share and store your collected eggs. Then, your bag empties, and you can continue hunting.
Your bag can only hold 100 eggs, and once it’s full, the tag will turn red. You can continue to hunt, but your oldest finds will be pushed out of the bag to make room for the new eggs. If you know you collected an egg you don’t want to lose, be sure to click the tag to bring up your finds!
At the North Pole, you’ll be able to hunt for seasonal egg series that you can’t find in Upstate New Yolk. New North Pole series will be released throughout the month, as well. Use a key while you are at the North Pole to open these new holiday series.
Since the North Pole and Upstate New Yolk each have a different mix of series, your open series markers at the bottom of the game will only show you your open series for the location you are currently hunting in. However, even though you can only hunt for the series that are available in your current location, stored eggs (network and premium) will be available across both destinations.
Have a happy holiday!
Travel to the North Pole will only be available for a limited time. Complete your series (and stock up your storage) before travel ends.
