New Arcade Tournament Game Coming Soon: Duck Crossing

webkinz cheats
 
Ganz has announced that a brand new game will be coming to the Arcade Tournament Area soon: Duck Crossing.  The objective of this game is to get your Duck across the pond before your opponent does.   Both players take turns moving their ducks and placing "reeds" (to block the other player).  The first player to get all of the way across the pond is the winner!  This game is expected to appear in Webkinz World in the next few weeks.
 

Thanks for a great year, Ganz!

 
Webkinz is a fun cross generational site.  This past year there have been many exciting changes, new features and new games in Webkinz World.  A special thanks to all the wizzards at Ganz for their hard work this past week, and this past year.  Please post what you are thankful for in Webkinz World.  Posts that are off topic will be deleted.  Thank you to WI moderator Cocoabean for creating this banner.

Santakinz Has Finished Delivering Gifts to ALL Accounts!

webkinz cheatsGanz has announced that Santakinz has finished delivering the Christmas Gifts to EVERY account in Webkinz World, even to players who were not able to log on during Christmas Day.  Remember, this year, you must click on "Get Items From Storage" to get your gift to show up in your dock.  Unlike with previous Holidays, you will NOT get a pop-up announcing that your gift has been delivered.
 
We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday and is looking forward to a bright New Year.

Webkinz Insider Member Solves Domestic Cat Mystery!

webkinz cheats
 
Back in August of this year, we brought you news that a Webkinz Domestic Cat had been added to Webkinz World (click HERE for story).  At that time, all we could tell you was that the Cats were being spotted in the Clubhouse, but we couldn't tell you how players were able to adopt them.  Today, it appears that they mystery has been solved.
 
Thank you to Webkinz Insider member 12Mitchp for these pictures showing his adoption of a Webkinz "Cat"!  Here is his explanation of how he was able to get the option to adopt this pet:
 
I was going to adopt a new Webkinz today when I found a third option which said "try a limited account".  So I pressed it expecting to going to the Webkinz demo when it transfered me to this new thing on the normal server and it had an option to either adopt the domestic cat which is actually called the cat or the mutt.  You get to name it and all, but it has limited access to 5 games, a few hourlies, and lots more.
 
As you may remember the Webkinz Demo was a feature that was added to Webkinz World in November of 2008 for people in countries that do not have Webkinz retailers (outside of the United States and Canada) to test out Webkinz out for one day before they order one online (click HERE for story).  In that demo, people could adopt a pet called a "Mutt".
 
Unlike the Webkinz Mutt, which comes with a copy of the Webkinz Dragster as a Pet Specific Item and comes with a copy of the wShop Hamburger as a Pet Special Food, the Domestic Cat does not come with a PSI or a PSF.
 
At this point we are not certain why some some people are getting the option to select the Domestic Cat when they sign up for a Demo account and some people just get the Webkinz Mutt.  We'll let you know as soon as we learn more.

Ganz Releases More Information on Christmas Gift Delivery

webkinz cheats
 Webkinz Newz update at 11pm EST:

With his longest working day of the year finally coming to an end, Santakinz has sent us another update on the status of his long journey. As exhausted as he is, his trek across Webkinz World continues. The snow storm which slowed him down refused to let up, and he has been delivering presents well through the night. Many members have already received their gifts, but there are still some who have not yet been visited yet.

If you haven’t received your gift, Santakinz wants you to know that he will be personally delivering every last present, and that the wait shouldn’t be much longer. Because of the delay, Santakinz will automatically be placing the presents right in your dock, meaning you’ll find your presents waiting for you the next time you log in after he has visited your room. You may also need to retrieve your items from storage through the dock to see your present.

We here at Ganz would like to apologize for this unfortunate turn of events. We’ve been working long and hard through Christmas Day to ensure that everyone gets their presents, and we appreciate your patience. With the snow storm finally letting up, it shouldn’t be long before Santakinz has completed his journey and can finally retire to his workshop for another year. He’ll have deserved his sleep once he does.

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas Day, and we look forward to seeing you all enjoying your presents this weekend in Webkinz World!

Update On Presents Direct From Santakinz!
December 25th, 2009

Good news, everyone! We've received word from Santakinz himself that his long journey across the whole of Webkinz World has begun! Unfortunately, after hurrying from his workshop to make up for time lost from oversleeping, he ran head long into a snowstorm!

Though Santakinz has now begun to make his way from room to room, delivering presents to Webkinz around the world, the snow is keeping him from making his journey faster. He told us to let everyone know that he is well on his way to everyone’s rooms, but he needs time in order to complete his trip around Webkinz World safely. He said not to worry, though, as everyone will receive their gifts sometime today!

We're glad to hear that Santakinz is weathering the storm and working hard to get us all the presents! Keep enjoying yourself in Webkinz World with all our Christmas activities, and if you haven’t recieved your presents yet, don't worry: Santakinz is on his way!

 Keep checking back here on Webkinz Insider for updates!'

Don't Forget to Log On to Webkinz World on Friday!

Don't forget to log on to Webkinz World on Friday to claim your Christmas Holiday Gift Box.  If you don't log on Christmas Day, you'll miss out on some spectacular Christmas-themed gifts.  Previous Christmas Gift Boxes have contained decorations, clothing, food, and even Wish Tokens.  What will this year's Box contain?  We'll just have to wait to find out.  Remember, don't spoil the surprise for those who want to wait to see what they got when they open their own boxes.  
 
UPDATE:  According to the Webkinz Newz, the Christmas gifts are programmed to be distributed at 9am Eastern Time on Friday.  So, you'll need to log on to Webkinz World during Christmas Day, but after 9am EST to get your gift.  Asian, European, and American accounts are all on the same schedule.
 
And, there will be a Super Wheel to spin on Christmas Day too.  Ganz revealed that one of the items on the wheel will be a new addition to the rare Palace Princess Theme.  Previous Super Wheels have had KinzCash, Exclusives, Rares, etc. on them.  To learn more about the Webkinz Super Wheel, please visit the Webkinz Insider WIki Guide, HERE.
 
This year, there's even one more reason to log on to Webkinz World for Christmas.  Every player who logs on will be entered into a random drawing to win a rare Sweet Tooth Tiger.  These virtual-only Webkinz were given as gifts to Webkinz employees this year, but Ganz has set aside twenty-five adoption codes to be given to Webkinz players.  Don't miss out on your chance to get one of these special pets.

UPDATE:  Thank you to all of our members with accounts set to the Asian time zone (who are a day ahead) for letting us know about a new MyPage Badge that is being given out for Christmas.  It appears that all you have to do is log on to Webkinz World on Christmas Day to receive the "Christmas Cheer" badge.  For more information on MyPage badges, please visit our Guide, HERE.

No Prizes in Today's Balloon Dart Activity - Update: Now Works

webkinz cheats
 
If you came up empty handed in today's Balloon Dart activity, you're not alone.  So far, we haven't had a single report of a player getting a prize from this game since Ganz changed the programing last week.  On December 20th, players were not able to get the game to load at all.  Today, players are able to shoot darts and pop balloons, but none of the balloons have prizes.  These glitches are affecting all accounts, in all time zones, on all servers.
 
This glitch is being tracked in our official Glitch Report in the Webkinz Insider WIki, HERE.
 
Update: December 24th: On Asian accounts at 4pm KT, Balloon Dartz was working!  This event is similar to the Token Balloon Dartz where there is a power gauge.  The prizes so far that have been reported include "Sorry" notes, chattering teeth, KinzCash, and the good ole Cowboy Mini Boots and Bunny Clown which were featured as prizes in the previous Balloon Dartz.  We are not sure if there are new prizes to date. Good luck popping the Balloons!
