Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

Its not working. I tried with two accounts, and after nearly half an hour, received a "servers are temporarily down" message. I NEVER play the peek-a-news because it takes so long, and I finally try and this. I did send Ganz a message, and am hoping it is working for someone!

Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

It seems to be working okay for me! I hope that yours get fixed!

Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

I'm just jinxed when it comes to peek-a-news. Its a good thing I can often find the prizes in the GE!

Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

It worked for me. (well, sort of) Clear your cache right before you go to the news site. I found that after finding 3 of them, he seemed to stop peeking, so I left, cleared my cache again, and when I came back and logged in again to the search, he was back and I was able to finish.

Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

I had no problem finding Spooky, but I am in the habit of logging in often when I have to click on too many pages.

The prizes I have received so far are:
mini pumpkin tarts
pb & j chococups
gnarled pumpkin chair (I think this is new)
acorn placemat setting
small inflatable jack o'lantern

Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

I hate peek-a-newz. I'll never finish this one.

Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

Thanks for the information Electrabuzz, I finished today. It took a long time. I won the pumpkin tarts. I have them from last year so maybe next time I will win that table

Hopefully Spooky won't be so hard to find in the days to come. Good Luck everyone!

Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

It worked fine for me but not for a friend. She was on an hour and a half and could only find him 3 times. I'm not sure of what the difference was for me. I found him fairly quickly for a Peek a Newz. The prizes I got were not very good. (Placemats and food items)

The table looks familiar, but is it new?



I just found a picture of the table and chair on a different website. They look like a coloration variance on a a past year's table and chair set. It also looks like they added some more to the table near its legs.

Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

Thank you Electrabuzz1!

I had no trouble finding that spooky hamster, I used Internet Explorer and that little guy showed up quite often.

Yes it's slightly different coloring.

And speaking of variances - the pumpkin floaty is giving out a slightly different color costume plus the the gold versions of the silver accessories that they had in a clicky back a couple/few years ago before they changed their site to Webkinz Newz then Webkinz World.

Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

Does anyone know tips and tricks to peek a news. Every time I try it, I see the character 3 times and then never again. I hope to win the Halloween banner as that was the hard one to win last year and I never did win it.

Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

The only trick I know to do PKN is after logging in to do the peeka I open a few extra duplicate tabs of WKN and then keep reloading each tab until I find the peeka head

still takes lots of patience to get a few accounts done

there's a few WI members that are really good at doing the pkn maybe they have other tips


don't forget to zoom the WKN page out so you can see the whole area

This is the best advice to finish the peek. Personally, I don't clear my cache, but I do log in again and he starts showing up again.

And yes, the new furniture is recolored from the old w-shop items. The old stuff is brown colored "Purple Pumpkin" and the new is gray colored "gnarled".

Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

When the host stops showing up, i go back to the play now page and re-log in. it seems to work pretty well for me. I also occasionally switch it up and look through the items section of the kinzapedia. Hope i get more than placemats and chococups...

I do PAN for multiple accounts (13 of them)!

The quickest way to do them for me is to open both firefox and IE. I log into two accounts at once, one on each browser.

Next, from the front main page of Newz I right click and open in new tab 5 links from the RECENT POSTS menu on the left side of the main page of Newz on each browser (on firefox it will say "open link in new tab", on IE it will say "open in new tab")

Once all the pages are loaded on each browser, I go through the tabs and look for the character. I click on it when I find it and then switch to the other browser. I then go back to the main Newz page of the browser and right click on the top of the tab to reload all the tabs that are open. (IE it will say "refresh all" and Firefox will say "reload all tabs" I then go through the tabs again, clicking on the character.

The character link is only active on one tab per refresh, you can time working both browsers so that you are refreshing one set, while looking at the other set.

If you are not doing PAN for multiple accounts, opening up both browsers and logging in with the same user id/password, will speed up the search for the character.

If you have not seen the character for two refreshes, log into Pan again and refresh the tabs. It will continue where you last were.

I hope this helps, I can usually get all my accounts done in about half an hour to forty-five minutes.

Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

I adore all things Halloween so I'm super excited about this Peek-a-Newz and will definitely try to play every day I hope the table and banner are not too hard to obtain

If it stops showing, I can sometimes get it to pop up if I go to the contests page as if I am planning to login again. If you have more than one account, sometimes I will find it 3 times on one account, login to the other to find it a few times and then go back to the original account.



On one account today, I got a chair to match the purple table. The thing is the table and chairs seem to be rare, so it probably is wishful thinking to think I can get enough chairs and a table, but I will keep playing multiple accounts in hopes I can get a set to put on one.

I received last years Peek a Newz Items: Acorn Placemat Setting, Leaf Glasses, Mini Pumpkin Tarts, PB & J Chococup, and Small Inflatable Jack O'Lantern. I have not received a banner yet.

Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

I did win a banner - so it's winnable! And several tables and chairs.

Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

Thanks for the information Electrabuzz & Good luck to all who try

Re: Spookys Halloween Peek-A-Newz Challenge on Webkinz Newz

I've got a couple things already!
