New Update- Place Your Guesses Game

[Post New]by ChestnutHeights on Mar 23, 14 11:58 AM
So, we are all waiting for the new update. I'm firmly in the camp that the inclusion of the stars update was a precursor to another update to come THIS month.

That said, I think it would be fun to turn it into a game-- so I started a new thread.

Based on the below quote from their page, let's see whose the closest to the actual release date and what will that include. The winner, well wins our admiration. But, it could be a fun way to pass the time.

Here's the quote. The questions will follow. Whomever gets the most right wins.

Winter has ended and Spring is almost here! We have new quests, daily bonus rewards, additional bundles and menu improvements to prepare for the upcoming event this month.


Each correct question is worth 1 point. The bonus is worth 5

1. Date of the release?
2. Time of the release? (since we're all over the world, we'll have to use BF time)
3. Will a building be opened in one of the towns? If so, which one (here are the choices)
A. Paw Paw ( Arcade)
B. Dinhammer ( Building next to the Arcade)
C. Breezy Bay ( Wharf)
D. NONE
4. What Theme (if any) will be the focus of the new release?
5. What CURRENT city will have a mini-scene opened up?

And the BONUS Question

*** What new pet (if any) will be available?

Ok.. Start guessing and let's see who gets the most!!!

Oh. One more piece to the puzzle. This is another quote, just to get everyone thinking.

Pawpaw Grove is Beechwood Cove's nature garden. It's the best place to visit now that the snow is melting and Spring is almost here .

1. 4/4
2. 11:00AM
3. A
4. Easter
5. Guo Antiques, San Francisco, CA

Bonus question: a chick.

Notes:
1. Like with most ICT projects, they'll miss a deadline
3. There's a fifth option: E. The attic in the antique store, but I think we have a long way to go for that one.
Bonus: chick as in little chicken, not as in young woman

Okay, play the guessing game....

March 31
12 Midnight (rapidly followed by a server crash as everyone downloads)
The arcade
Theme? The stars
I don't think it will be a current city, I'm voting for a new map location and the building will be an observatory just off the West Coast (think Hawaii)

New pet should be a robin for Spring but I'd be happy with a 6 ft white rabbit named Harvey

This looks like fun...

1. March 30 - I'm changing this to April 11 based on a statement made on the BoomZap forum. They didn't say the 11th, but that's what I'm guessing.
2. 6:00 am BFG time
3. They'll open the arcade and give us a glimpse of what the other building in Dinhammer Alley will be.
4. The theme will probably be spring with some Easter quests.
5. I really would like the Doll Shop scenes opened up. Next guess would be the Hotel.
Bonus - I'm ready for a cat, but it will probably be a rabbit.

This was fun to think about. I'm ready for the update right now!!

To add to the fun........

1. April Fools Day
2. 12 noon wherever we are.......
3. The Arcade in Paw Paw - already promised as coming up!
4. Easter, with Bunnies, chicks and eggs / egg hunts........
5. the Hotel - which has been indicating "hot spots" for a long time..... maybe we might even get the 2 new cities we are still waiting for???

As for a pet, I guess the most likely is a rabbit - and I would support the idea of a Harvey.....

ps Interestingly, here in the UK a robin is very much a winter bird - it is very popular to be shown on Christmas cards sitting in the snow and perhaps even with a nice warm scarf round its neck! It is also my favourite bird - so friendly and with a glorious song.

No kidding, this year my mother had five robins on Christmas cards from relatives in England. Ours are bigger and doesn't so much sing; and winters to the south. In KS where I am they show up about the first week in Feb and if it gets cold disappear again!

Oh, I am off topic aren't I? Let me redeem myself.

1.) April 7
2.) Midnight, local time
3.) A. Paw Paw -Arcade
4.) Easter
5.) Hotel in Ohio

Pet category - they will make available Bunny Ears to put on our dogs.

P.S. I think I have about every kind of bird there is in my yard. I have birdhouses and feeders up. They started showing up about the middle of February. The robins came first. But now I have them all. Rabbits are here too. Lots of them.

I wanted April 1 too, but the first post said this month can I change to 12:01 AM on the 1st still quickly followed by the server crash?
No I'm not being cynical with the server crash we all know we are just waiting to download that update. I'll bet some of us even have an alarm set incase we are asleep when it shows up!

I didn't read that there was no cheating! Actually, April 11 is my daughter-in-laws due date, so I kinda hope it's before then. I'd hate to have to tell her she can't go into labor until I've downloaded my update...

Yeah, but there's something about a woman in labor wanting you to pay attention to her...
