I just saw that the blocko store is in pink boxes. So do I need a pink basket to get pink eggs? Or do the pink baskets give my neighbors pink eggs for blue ones and I get the blue ones?

Currently doing my best to let everything in my town be razed to the ground. Hope I have enough houses.

Right there with you, dude. My head is spinning trying to sort through all this talk of eggs and baskets and colors and thousands of donuts!
Don't we have a month to get this done? I'm sure it'll be fine.


+1 to both of the above!

No, Pink eggs are more randomly given out. You can find them tapping on bunnies or visiting friends (or a prize from blue I believe). There's also a premium item that generates 300 pink eggs per 24 hours - 65 donuts.

The baskets ONLY payout when your neighbors GIVE you their eggs. Neighbors that give blue egg donations convert to pink eggs, neighbors pink egg donations convert to blue (based on the diagram shown for the event).

I had a neighbor drop eggs in both my baskets, but I can't collect them...so now I am even more confused

Now I'm even more confused! I thought the baskets were for trading eggs??

It is "trading". A neighbor DONATES (i.e. loses an egg) an egg to you. Then when this basket has reached a preset limit (no idea what it is, or how many), then the basket becomes collectable to the owner. So after 10 players donate 10 BLUE eggs, when you collect from the blue basket, it gives you 10 pink eggs - or something of that nature. It doesn't outline 1-1 trade so you might get like 4 pink for 10 blue or something like that. It is essentially a tally of eggs from multiple neighbors converting to the opposite type of egg. You can only cash out when the basket is full.

So a blue basket will convert blue eggs to pink eggs. A pink basket will convert pink eggs to blue. Neighbors fill the respected baskets with the appropriate eggs. The town owner gets the converted eggs. The baskets have to have x amount of donations before the player can cash out.

See above, you can't collect until it is "full". that's what the guide said.

Thank you!!!! So as far as we know there is no return to giver (person donating the eggs) other then the hope that that person (gainer) will return the favor at some point?

So I would be surprised to see how many people give away their eggs before clearing the boxes.

That sort of answers my original question, though you don't seem very sure about it.

Is anyone sure about how this works? Which basket will I need to get pink eggs? And do my neighbors lose eggs entirely to the basket, or will they get a different egg back? Because if they lose eggs instead of trading them, I'm not super cool with that.

I am not sure, I am just passing the info on from when you unlock the basket. It's also on the info graphic (center) when you unlock the bunnies. The dialogue made it seem like it wasn't a 1-1 conversion, and it also made it seem like the neighbor doesn't "lose" any eggs - they get some of the reward for filling your basket. Since we have had no one with a full basket, it's hard to decipher what actually happens, if eggs are lost, if the giver does get the eggs back, etc.

From tstotopix

Your friends will enter your town to exchange one Easter egg for another. For example if you wanted a pink Easter egg and your neighbour wanted a blue then your neighbour would give you a pink Easter egg while taking a blue Easter egg

Most wanted item: Bartman Skin, Have some space left only adding forum regulars pm me before adding

This is a great way to start to interact with your neighbours and make deals which can be done on our Add Friends page. There will be an upcoming post which will allow you to find egg buddies.


ooops someone already posted it just before me

According to the dialogue, it made it seem the neighbor would be compensated. I visited all friends immediately after the update hit, so I saw 0 baskets. I hope to test this out in the coming days with my side town. Which was thankfully gifted to me.

So I know EA knows their mistake with the stolen snakes with Lisa's task last year, so I doubt they would allow people to just lose eggs without seeing the reward.

Hmmm...how does that really work though? They take out of my overall count? Because my baskets were empty, I had one visitor and 2 baskets then filled...where did my egg come from? I'm not questioning you...just overall---want to figure this out

That's how I thought it worked.
Okay, so WHICH basket color do I need to get pink eggs? Do friends put pink eggs in pink baskets in exchange for blue eggs? Or do they get blue eggs from blue baskets and leave pink eggs?
