Default CC#43: Code BLACK - Don't bother 68% of 165,200,000 points in Zingoz Pop 15-16Jan[Upd Sun 1158pm] Too many are purely searching for snowflakes - so join them and maybe next weekend ...

=========================================================
. >*< ... >*< ... >*< . Happy Winterfest . >*< ... >*< ... >*< .

Play Zingoz Pop in between Snowflake cycles,
especially if you have mult. accts open at once.
See info at end of Original post for more details.
Winterfest flybys in WW and WebkinzNewz[1/day/acct].
=========================================================
The comments below will have the most recent on top;
The Progress History will appear at the end.
Please share your predictions, hopes, progress, challenges, hints.
=============================================
Update 5: Sun 5pm
Much as I hate to call things early, I think we can consider this a goner.

Well, if nothing else were going on, this would still be doable [tough, but doable].
BUT, too many are focused solely on finding flakes, so we will not reach the goal.
Ganz did not adjust for the weekend's activities.
Next week may be bad as well.
They will drive more away from participating...
Go pray for a blizzard and enjoy the prizes.
And we can hope for better next week.
Have a great week, and don't burn out your finger!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update 4: Sun 9am

Oddly, the meter hasn't budged since just after 2am. Strange.
I have a soccer obligation, so will be away until late afternoon.
PLEASE keep trying. And hopefully the flakes will fly again soon.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update 3: Sun 2am

Not my day. Went shopping, then computer was in use for a term paper,
then the connection started dropping.

But, I did get quite a few games in before 10 yesterday, while snagging
33 items on our accounts. Still need the window though. But do have all week.
Looks like people are too wrapped up in the snowflakes.
Spread the word - you CAN do both.
This IS still doable, but only if we can get more fingers on board.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update 2: Sat 10am
Oops, last updates didn't fully load. Info below expanded.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update 1: Fri 9pm

Points announced.
Looks like they want to see us flounder.
Check the strategy I've added after the Original post on how to catch snowflakes
AND get to play, albeit in small bursts.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Original: Thurs 9pm
Be sure to join us this weekend to play Zingoz Pop
in between all your Winterfest plans.
Hopefully they will keep the festivities in mind when they announce the points
needed to win the Fine Fossil Dining Table [value 750kc/375kc resale].

This is one of my favorites, and I can often keep it going over 20 levels.
I'll probably switch between short & long games.


Remember to register & play.

Also, check the Communal Challenge tab of the newspaper once you do play
to make sure your play registered by checking the message no longer is
Participate in the challenge to win a prize.
but is updated to
You are entered in the competition.

Happy Matching.


============================================
. >*< ... >*< ... >*< . Winterfest Stategy . >*< ... >*< ... >*< .

Play Zingoz Pop in between Snowflake cycles, especially if you have mult. accts open at once.
You CAN see snowflakes in the Arcade menu area.
The flakes for an individual account come at 6 minute intervals,
though uploading ads might wiggle the time back & forth by a minute.
You have a potential of seeing a snowflake every 6 minutes.
So once you see one, you can plan from there.

Again, you may NOT see one EVERY 6 minutes, just a potential.
Different windows MAY be snowing at different times
[e.g. my 2 Asian accts are staying a minute apart, but are on the same server].

IF you only have one account, open the Arcade & set it up with Zingoz Pop
in the Play Game window to the right.
When you catch a snowflake, note the time.
Start & play ZP for about 5 minutes, then X out.
You will get the points and cash, and be back in the arcade in time to wait.

You may see a snowflake in the next minute.
If so, repeat, adding 6 minutes to its actual arrival for your next possible one.
If not, wait a little more while you add 6 minutes to this expected time,
play another game, Xing out a minute before snow, and repeat as needed.

If you have multiple accounts:
[obviously, this works best on desktops or large laptops,
but I do manage on a netbook as well.]

This is my situation, and here is my strategy.
Set up a sticky note [if provided online, on upper right of screen]
or a piece of paper listing each account.
Use this to list the next expected time for an account [I also log prizes].

Then open as many windows as needed, or easy to work with.
I open 5 for WW [also have others open for other needs, like WI].
Put first to lower left of screen, just needing name & time visible at bottom.
Then put the next immediately to the right of the time [so see 1.5 inches of it]
and staggered up slightly [so you can select either without minimizing either].
I repeat this 3 more times, with the 5th sloping down again.
The key is to be able to jump windows easily, and see the sticky note.

Each acct is set to the Arcade, with ZP in the Play Game window.
I play in the rightmost window, eyeballing the others to catch any sign of a floater.
Since times for each of our accnts are staggered, I haven't had the problem of 2 at once
[Just are, even the ones on the same server are a minute apart.]
I choose to leave ZP going while I mouse to a flake sighted window & trap.
Then I note the next time so I know when to pay more attention to that window.
[I also I jot what I got & when.]
Usually the game is still active by the time I mouse back to the last window.
Even if it finishes, I still get the kc & points, & just start again.
I'll just occasionally rotate which account is on the right [just move windows].

This strategy for mult. accts will also let you get your dailies/hourlies/jobs done
in one window [rightmost] while you continue tracking in the others.

Hope that works for you too!
Encourage people to play as they can, so we don't fall too far behind.

Thanks for the great strategy.

I try to do activities in all the windows I open, but I often miss a flake.
I might give this a try.

I finally got some chimes. Now I need the window. And to pop some balloons.

Oddly, the meter has not budged since after 2 am this morning.

Since the flakes have been absent, I wonder if the meter is also
having problems,
since I know of several people who have been doing quite a bit of playing...

I never saw a single snow flake while I was playing Zingos Pop, and I play long games.

Dartmar-

Correct, you will NOT see a snowflake while actually playing
i.e. when only the Zingoz Pop game is in the window.

That is why I say play almost 5 minutes [since the flakes are on a 6 minute cycle]
when you only have one WW account open.
Then you X out of the game, and flake-wait.
Let's see if I can make it a bit clearer:

When you first enter the Arcade, you are in the Arcade menu area.
It shows the Game of the Day & Game List on the left,
and the Play Game window and other info on the right,
and the Pet Menu Bar on the bottom.
THIS is where you can see snowflakes -
you see them anywhere you can see your pet.

When you then click down to Zingoz Pop & click ONE time,
The Zingos Pop logo appears in the Play Game window.
Still a flake-friendly place.
Click on the logo in that Play Game window OR the Play Game button
and the game starts.
At this point the game takes up the whole screen & NO flake-catching possible.
But notice the X at the upper right of the game frame -
pressing that gets you back to the original window, back to flake-friendly.
If, instead of the X, you start the game, you can play in any of the next
windows and still see that X in the score bar.
If you press the X after you have scored, you will go the the Game Over screen
where you can see your score, kc, and pet - this is also flake friendly.
(I actually just had a flake float across that screen while I played a game).
So wait here for a flake (or the flake-possible time to pass) and then Replay.

I hope that clears it up.

The screens I did this with had the same flake haul as those I had on the
side of the screen waiting in other areas.
(I usually keep 5 windows open at once for WW0.

Hope this helps for next week.
And thanks for reading and supporting the Communal Challenge!
