    Howdy Cowboys and Cowgirls,

    The celebrations for the Independence Day are running in all the towns around The West, and we have decided to do a special contest for you to have the chance to win great prizes that you will be able to spend during the in-game event!

    We've prepared a little treasure hunt for you!

    We've hidden 8 parchment pieces inside old forum posts and wiki pages. With all these pieces you will be able to assemble a question related to a fun fact about the Independence Day Celebration.
    A small hint for you: Remember what we are celebrating! Don't forget to look at everything that is related to it! ;)



    And that's not all!

    While you're searching for the hidden images here's another riddle for you.

    We created these images of the Independence Day celebration. Can you spot all the differences between the two images below?

    Once you've found everything you need, here is what you have to do to submit your answer:

    • Go in this section -> HERE
    • Create a new discussion by pressing the ''plus'' button at the bottom of the page
    • In the title, you have to write ONLY your NICKNAME
    • In the text of the discussion you have to put:
    1. The worlds where you would like to receive your prizes. (You can submit your name to have a chance to receive the final prize in multiple worlds)
    2. The link of all the images you've found and where they were.
    3. The number of differences between the two images and what the differences are
    4. The question created from all the hidden images
    5. The answer to that question


    And what are the prizes??



    • If you've guessed everything correctly* you will receive:
    2 x [​IMG]
    1 x [​IMG]

    For a total amount of 1000 Fireworks!
    And the chance to be drawn for the GREAT PRIZE!

    *By "correctly" it means that you followed all the passages and in your answer there is: All the links to the hidden images; the n° of differences and where the differences are; The full "question" about the fun-fact; the correct answer to the fun-fact)




    • If you've answered the two main questions correctly (the number and where the differences are; the answer to the fun-fact) but you missed even one of the correct passages to submit the answers (e.g. You didn't provide all the images; You didn't point out where all the differences are), then you will receive:


    2 x [​IMG]
    1 x [​IMG]

    For a total amount of 500 Fireworks!



    • If you've correctly guessed only one of the two main questions, which means only the answer to the fun-fact question, or only the differences between the two images, then you will receive:
    2 x [​IMG]
    1 x [​IMG]

    For a total amount of 250 Fireworks!



    • If you didn't guess anything but you've only participated in the event, don't worry, as usual, you will get the consolation prizes!
    Which is:

    1 x [​IMG]with 25 fireworks in it


    and of course
    A can of spinach! [​IMG]





    But now things are getting interesting!

    If you are in the first group of players you now have a chance to win the GREAT PRIZE!

    We will randomly extract 10 nicknames for every world and...



    The first 3 names will receive an Efficient fireworks container [​IMG] which generates 2500 fireworks for the Independence Day event once every 23 hours!


    The other 7 names will receive a Fireworks container [​IMG] which generates 1250 fireworks for the Independence Day event once every 11,5 hours!



    What you are waiting for? Let's start the hunt!



    Disclaimer:

    • You have time to submit your answer until 14/07/2019, 23:59. Then we will extract the winner names the next day (15/07).
    • You can find some of the 8 parchment pieces in any place of a wiki page, it should be inside a specific page related to the main topic or even a small detail inside the objects of the page. So keep your eye peeled!
    • You can find some of the 8 parchment pieces in any place of the forum, it could be inside the main thread or even in the feedback page. Another small hint: Use the search bar if you don't know where to begin!
    • It's very important to open the answer thread in the correct way. If you don't, your entry could be disqualified.
    • If you find a piece of the parchment please don't share it with other players, so you will have more chances to win the Great Prize!
    • If you have any other questions, feel free to use the feedback thread: HERE

    Have fun! :cool:
