Default Token Balloon Darts

Does anyone else have problems playing Token Balloon Darts? It's the one game that I just can't get to work. I can move the dart from side to side and once in a while it shoots a dart off, but most of the time I just get frustrated and leave after five minutes. I don't think this problem is related to the draw of too many people--it's happened to me at 6:00 in the morning, in the afternoon, in the middle of the hour, and late at night. It can't be my mouse, which works fine on every other part of the Webkinz site. But it's a little frustrating since it's one of the few ways that you can earn tokens, but I have been able to play it successfully only twice (and then with these difficulty and delays) in the four months that I've been on Webkinz.

I am sorry to hear about your troubles. I don't know, myself, how to fix that. You can try e-mailing Webkinz at support@webkinz.com and tell them the problem you are having. I would suggest calling also, but that is a headache in itself!! LOL

I hope you get everything worked out, and welcome to Webkinz!

Yes I used to not be able to do it either. You need to bring your cursor down low to where the actual dart is and shoot from there. I forgot again today the first time I tried to throw it!

Good Luck!

Thanks so much for these suggestions! I'll try the cursor one first (whenever token balloon darts appears again....) because, as I read the message, I had a mental image of my cursor being up on the balloons when I was trying yesterday. If that doesn't work, I'll contact Ganz support. You both are the greatest!

Yes that is the reason. On regular balloon dartz you can shoot from anywhere but the token ones you need to have the pointer ON the dart. Good luck on your next throws!

SallyAnne,

I had the exact same problem that you did until I finally figured it out. The "cursor on the dart" advice will work.

Now if I could only slow down the power meter. That thing moves so fast, I kept missing the balloons.

Yep, what the others have said - you have to have your cursor over the DART
for the token balloon darts.

The little meter does run at hyper speed on this one, so the best you can do is practive saying
"Now" a few times when it hits red, to get a "groove" going! Sort of like a metronome, you can get an idea of when to push the mouse button that way! : )
I hope that helps - it sure did help me!

I can't stand token darts, but I love the regular balloon darts. I usually waste one or two of my darts not hitting a target on token darts.

Default Re: Token Balloon Darts

Thanks for all of the advice! I will place the cursor correctly next time and look forward to getting some tokens. For me (in the few times Token Balloon Darts has worked because my cursor must have inadvertantly been placed correctly) the meter hasn't been the problem: as someone said, it's just like a metronome (thanks for all those piano lessons, Mom!). Just think of a beat and don't get rushed. That's why I was so puzzled at my failure: I can dunk the zingoz on my first throw and hit five balloons on regular balloon darts, though I'm tired of getting cowboy boots. I have to admit my success on the new game (the one with positive or negative points on the target, whose name escapes me) is variable, but I usually get on the plus side. Now I can't wait for the next Token Balloon Darts! Thanks again to you all!

Default Re: Token Balloon Darts

Here is my strategy for token balloon dartz: wait until the "needle" or pointer, or whatever, is on the green. aim for the lower balloons. it took me months to get it, but this sat & sun i got 4 to 5 balloons. it helps if you have more than one account, then you get to practice more. it's a pitty they don't offer tolken balloon dartz more than once a month. good luck!
