MadPea Magical Christmas Hunt 2018

Happy Holidays!! The MadPea Magical Christmas Hunt is here with some festive, enchanted fun! If you aren’t hunting for the enchanted toys, then you are missing out! MadPea’s Magical Christmas Hunt runs from December 10 (noon) to December 24th (through end of day until Santa comes at Midnight for Christmas!). The hunt is a dynamic experience where all enchanted toy hunters hunt at different sims on a daily basis. Enchanted toys are constantly appearing and disappearing, giving hunters plenty of opportunity to rake in those points for prize redemption.

To join the hunt, buy the MadPea Magical Christmas Hunt HUD for $L100 (or $L500 for the Mega Pack). For more information about the hunt, check out the website here and to scope out all the unlocked prizes thus far, click here. I’ll be covering the Magical Christmas Hunt a lot more in detail in a later post.

Mega Hunter’s Pack sells for $L500 which includes the Christmas Chariot, Christmas Tree Wand, Santa’s Winter Jammies, 23 toy tokens to redeem at the Toy Maker and the MadPea Christmas Hunt HUD. Regular Magical Christmas Hunt Pack sells for $L100 which includes the Christmas Hunt HUD and 7 toy tokens to redeem at the Toy Maker.

Embrace Tranquility

Bonus points for those who know where the post title is inspired from 😛 DYNASTY has out a great traditional Chinese furniture set called Tranquility at The Epiphany this round. There are 10 total items to win (9 Commons and 1 Rare). There’s also an exclusive prize for those wanting a stone stool instead of the jade version. I couldn’t help but bring in parts of my childhood into this set as well. This set up is partly inspired by my mother. She absolutely loves plants and would have them grouped all over the house, especially near the entry way. For her, flowers and plants bring her tranquility and inner peace – a beautiful outlet from all the chaos that surrounds us all.

Merry Christmas From Us!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

A really quick post for you all this beautiful morning. Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday so far, and plenty more celebration ahead! Wanted to share this amazing MadPea Christmas Hunt prize that would be perfect if you have little ones to celebrate Christmas with. Our daughter ran down Christmas morning from her room, jumped on our bed to wake us up and made a mad dash to the Christmas tree to find this amazing and official certificate from Santa Claus. The look on her face was priceless, and she was beaming from ear to ear. We loved it so much that we had to take a family picture to celebrate what an amazing child Nessy has been the whole year!

Christmas Morning | Mine $ Yours

Tip: Scaling down through stretching will not work if you want the certificate to go smaller (I think it is the name plate that has been sized down to the minimum SL dimension already on one of its sides so you cannot go beyond that when linked together with something else. Instead, use a resizer script that ignores minimum dimension restraint that will conveniently help you resize the item as a whole.)

Also wanted to share a little memory a week before Christmas when we visited Santa on our land. He set up a little cottage area for him to stay at when Nessy went to visit him. She had received his letter, as Santa wanted to check up on Nessy before Christmas just to make sure she was still on track for staying on the Nice List. Merry Christmas, everyone! Stay warm and enjoy the company of loved ones around you this beautiful holiday season <3 From us to you, Merry Christmas.

MadPea’s Magical Christmas Hunt Teaser

It’s that time of year – Christmas is here (and so is MadPea’s Magical Christmas Hunt)! We’re not alone in our mad scramble to spread holiday cheer both in RL and SL, but Santa seems to have found himself in a bit of madness as well! And we, as the helpful MadPea elves that we are, need to find all the enchanted toys scattered all over the grid to *drumroll* SAVE CHRISTMAS! \o/  /o\  \o/ Okay, don’t mind me – probably had a bit too much of that Rum and Bourbon Eggnog.

MadPea’s Magical Christmas Hunt for Enchanted Toys will be the last hunt MadPea Productions puts on for 2017, and I am confident it will be the best one yet. As you all know, I am a massive fan of the MadPea hunts. They are simple, straightforward, eventful fun for two weeks. Tons of exploration, plenty of collaboration opportunities, and good ol’ fashioned competition – MadPea hunts are not “just any kind of hunt.” Only costing 100L to participate you are rewarded with heaps of great gifts/prizes.

What kind of awesome gifts? Well I am sure you’d like to see for yourself here on their official Facebook page!

The MadPea Christmas Hunt – How It Works

Here’s a brief breakdown on how the MadPea Christmas Hunt works. For $100L, you can purchase a MadPea Christmas Hunt HUD at the MadPea Toy Factory that grants you ability to hunt for enchanted toys that have been placed out gridwide from December 14th to December 28th. This Enchanted Toy Finder HUD will also randomly assign you to a team – Green, Red, or White. To find these toys, the HUD acts like a compass/radar that leads you to them.

There are three types of toys that you can find for points – Robots, Stuffed Toys, and Wheelies. There is also special kind of hunt item (A chimney! – now wouldn’t it be funny if you get stuffed down the chimney if you found this one?!) that will give an instant prize instead of points. Robots last for 72 hours and are 50 points each. Stuffed Toys last for 48 hours and are 25 points each. Wheelies last for 24 hours and are 10 points each. With these points, you can redeem some fantastic prizes that can be found here.

As a team, unlock prizes (more than 30 total!) the more toys that are captured. Each unlocked prize gets better and better (and most likely bigger too), so you definitely want to be gathering as many toys as you can find! Pick and choose which of these fantastic prizes you want with the points you have accumulated. Everyone has two weeks to work together, as a team, to unlock all the prizes.

To learn more about the MadPea Magical Christmas Hunt, go here: http://www.madpeagames.com/christmas-hunt/

PRO TIP: You can change teams (only once) at the very beginning of purchasing a hunt HUD before you have found any toys. So if you are hunting with friends, you can all choose to be on the same team color. Again, this is a one-time courtesy that can only be done at the very beginning.

The MadPea Christmas Hunt has already started! What are you waiting for? Let me give you my Top Reasons Why You Should Be Joining The Hunt:

1. Prizes – It is only Day 4 of the whole two week MadPea Christmas Hunt and teams have unlocked quite a few prizes already! Each of these prizes are of high quality, perfect for the Christmas season. Awesome prizes – need I say more?

2. Competition – Race for points and unlock more prizes as a team entity. The friendly competitiveness opens up so many opportunities for engagement and interaction among not only the teams, but with each individual MadPea hunter as we all embark on a gridwide adventure together. Those who are individually competitive are also recognized, as the daily top 3 hunters from each team are shown on the MadPea Christmas Hunt Scoreboard website here.

3. Community – While going sim to sim, hunting for toys, everyone I have met have been incredibly nice and supportive, even if they are essentially on different teams. Though each time color is competing against one another, we are still collectively working towards a common goal of collecting more points to unlock more prizes. In that sense, I love the feeling of a supportive and cooperative community the MadPea events seem to carry without fail.

4. Dynamic Gameplay – Each day’s hunt will be different. The toys are scripted to only last for a limited amount of time (24, 48, or 72 hours), making the hunt a lot more dynamic. Toys may disappear from where you may have last found them the day before and may reappear at a completely different location on the same sim. New toys are being placed out daily at different sims, making the hunt a constant mystery of where the HUD will take you next.

5. Exploration – This is what I find most exciting. I love seeing where this hunt will take me next as it fuels my drive to keep hunting for toys every day. I love seeing new places and experiencing what sorts of treasure they may offer. Note that a lot of these places these toys on this hunt will appear in some sort of commercial setting, but if you are a shopper like me, I love seeing what new products are out there that I may not have known existed before. The noncommercial sims are the ones I love most though – those are the ones I can explore and take neat pictures of, celebrating the creativity of the sim’s decoration.

6. Professional – Like I have said in my previous MadPea Hunt reviews, MadPea is the golden standard of a professional business in SL. Trust that the experience you are participating in has been tested over and over again to ensure that each participant has a good experience. You will be well taken care of by MadPea staff as well as a very a large MadPea community at your fingertips for prompt assistance.

ALL OF THIS FOR JUST $100L!!! This is not your normal freebie hunt – this is a fun and dynamic two week experience with amazing prizes that you’ll actually want and top of the line customer/hunter support.

Usually I clump the informative aspect of the hunt in with my personal experience such as showcasing several neat sim locations I have visited, but that forces me to put the single blog out later (maybe a week in) after I have spent some time doing the actual hunt and documenting my experience. Now, I am splitting the informative and personal posts up so I can get the information out quickly for readers to have more time to actually do the hunt. Then, my personal experiences and feedback can come anytime later, so check out my follow up post for the MadPea Christmas Hunt Experience that will come next week!
