Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop - *UPDATED*


webkinz cheatsWhen the DiceKinz Pet Packs were removed from the Webkinz wShop two weeks ago, many players hoped this was a simple glitch and that they would return soon.  Yesterday, Ganz officially announced that "the Pet Packs will not be back."  So, now we know this was a planned move on the part of Ganz, and not a mistake.
 
If you're looking to add to your DiceKinz collection, there are still several options left in the wShop:  DiceKinz Starter Pack, DiceKinz Booster Pack, DiceKinz Series 2 Booster Pack, and, for some reason, the DiceKinz Koala PetPack.
 
If you need help figuring out how to play DiceKinz, please check out the Webkinz Insider WIki.
 
UPDATE (April 14th @ 11:25am): Members are reporting that while the Koala pack appears to be available for some players, when you try to purchase the pack you are unable to. When trying to check out with your item it will state: "The item cannot be purchased as it is retired."

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop

Thanks for the info.

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop

I just tried to purchase the koala pack, it took my coupon and said this item cannot be purchased as it is retired!

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop

i'm so glad i bought the one for the Cheeky Monkey a week or so ago!

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop

I can't buy the Koala either... It looks available, but it's not.
At least it didn't take my money..

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop

How distressing!

I like that game.

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop

I never purchased one because the game didn't appeal to me. Oh, well. But those who have all of the DiceKinz PetPacks... hang on to them! They're probably going to be worth something... someday. xD

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop

I don't care that they were remoed cause game was too confusing for me.

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop - *UPDATED*

Glad you got that confirmed! However, I wonder WHY they chose to remove them? Does this signal the future demise of DiceKinz?

Wouldn't bother me much either way because I've never been able to wrap my mind around it, but I know some people enjoy it.

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop - *UPDATED*

Well thankfully back in jan I somewhat stocckd up on pet packs.. I wonder why they are retired now? prob cuz no one uses them i guess. Oh well I hope they make something good in trading.

I wonder if Spree is sort of replacing Dicekinz. Both are Dice games on a game board and Dicekinz has seemed somehow "further away" now that they added the Map of Kinzville.

They are not at all the same in that it could take around a couple months to finish a game of Spree and you can play Dicekinz as many times a day as you want (I used to know people who played it as an income source).Spree is more of a Daily activity like the Wheel of WOW or Jumbleberry Fields (short daily play like WOW, prizes to earn like JF).

I hope they don't completely remove Dicekinz but I never really bought the Dicekinz packs so I won't really miss them. My girls and I all like Dicekinz though we sometimes go a week or more without playing a game. If it was in the Clubhouse or Tournament Arena (or one of the in-room games like Puzzles) we might play more often.

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop - *UPDATED*

Will we have a WIGEV for the packs soon? I'm trying to decide if I should send my extras to my 2nd account and open them, or save them to trade?

I'm wondering if they'll be offering all the dicekinz in the bonus packs now? I doubt many people swapped packs in the trading rooms, and now we'll have a better opportunity to get everything?

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop - *UPDATED*

NOOOO!!!!!! I did stock up, but then opened them all and put them for using on dicekinz. Not a HUGE deal to me though.

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop - *UPDATED*

big. fat. GGGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR...............

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop - *UPDATED*

WHAT? Seriously GANZ? Come on! Will the packs I bought already be taken away.. still in my dock. If they make that game quit.. ugh GANZ this is one of the stupidest things you've ever done! I'm really mad right now. Little things like this make me so angry I could just.. just quit buying Webkinz altogether.



They better bring them back. :\ This is so unfair.

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop - *UPDATED*

That probably means no more dicekinz? And i don't like the game much but for those of you who do- sorry the dice kinz packs got removed.

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop - *UPDATED*

I wish they would have given some notice. I would have bought at least one of all the pets we had them for.

Re: Ganz Confirms Removal of DiceKinz PetPacks from wShop - *UPDATED*

Well this is disappointing. Now I wish that I'd stocked up.
