Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges


On the Webkinz Newz site earlier this morning, Ganz announced that four new level ten prizes have been added to the Challenges in the Hamster Hamlet:  Garden Gyroscope, Hamster Garden Topiary, Hamster Tiki Statue, and Water Tower Chair.  We don't yet have any reports of players winning these prizes, but we are keeping an eye out.
 
On Wednesday, we brought you the news that a glitch affecting the Challenges was preventing players from winning any level ten prizes at all.  Thankfully it appears that glitch has been fixed.  We are currently getting reports of players winning the trophy pedestals that were added to the feature in March.

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

I played the timed flag challenge and all I got was the usual silver colored trophy pedestal and the cherry cheesecake I think half way....so nothing new on that one. Not sure about the others.

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

I just did the Hidden Objects timed challenge. Got the Gold Pedestal. Quite happy with that, since I needed one more.

Not sure if the new prizes are there and are randomly awarded or, maybe, the new prizes announcement may be a little premature. Sunday seems like an unusual day for Ganz to be updating anything.

Whichever, I'm really looking forward to seeing the new prizes!

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

Maybe it's the hamlet globes or the drinks!

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

Thanks for the info.Everyone have a great day and God bless.

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

Super! THanks for the info!

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

There is actually a picture of the 4 new prizes in the WW newspaper after you log in. It is in the "What's New" section.

I think it is terrible for them to switch out the prizes so soon. I haven't been able to get to level 10 in over a month because I get automatically logged out before I even play for 1/2 an hour! I sure hope they offer the pedestals in the Mazin Mall so I can get them. I know one of them is unable to be kinzposted/traded (unless they recently changed that).

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

Challenges take me at least an hour to complete.

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

After reading this, ran over and played the GEMS challenge. Got the carrot cake at level 7 and the Gold Hamster Trophy Pedestal at level 10. Will try others later. I've never bothered w/ the challenges but now that there's prizes!! ....

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

I did the matching challenge and didn't get any of those new prizes.

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

I just finished the the hidden challenge and didn't get anything but the usual gold pedestal and cake.
I'll try again tomorrow. It took me 23:18. I'd love the new prizes.

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

Maybe things wont change until they do their change thing later in the week?

I also did the hidden gem challenge and got the usual prizes. Can't wait till the new ones are added. I like the trophy pedestals, but the new prizes are even better!

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

I do at least 2 challenges a day. I have 4 hamster accounts and I switch off. You make alot of moolah with those challenges.It usually take from 40-50 min. to complete a challenge. I've got so many pedistals I'm sending them to my other accounts. I hav'nt gotton any new prizes yet. I can't wait. I'm on pedistal overload.lol

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

Question: Why would Ganz announce new prizes that dont exist before they exist?

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

I didn't even realize that they gave out cake and trophy stands so I'm very happy I read this thread. I'd really love to get the Hamster Totem. So cute!

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

I just played the flag follies timed challenge and got the pedestal at the end. Maybe the new prizes aren't there yet, so if we want pedestals we better hurry. SnowCrystal, I make sure I go straight to the hamlet as soon as I log in so that I have the best chance for finishing before I get logged out randomly.

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

Got the gold table on level 10 of the find the gems challenge. Guess the new prizes aren't programmed in yet, which means maybe we need to go for the old trophy tables while they are still out there.

I'm still wondering about those globes we were promised a few months ago.....Ganz, get your act together, please.

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

Which path are you taking the castle one or the woodland one? I wonder if the prizes depend on which path? I did the castle one and got the tropfy stand. I tried to complete one on the woodland path, but was logged out on level 5, and just didn't try again -I got too frustrated.

I love the new prizes and hope they start showing up soon- but please don't do away with the stands.

Re: Ganz Announces Four New Prizes Added to Hamster Challenges

How cool! I can't wait to win some!

Thanks, I did that tonight and finished the challenge with the Zums. I was rushing through it so fast that I wasn't able to pick up much extra moolah (in fear of being logged out if I took too long!). The matching one always takes longer for me. I will try that one after I get some sleep. I should have been in bed 4 hours ago!
