I have read a lot of posts about people being frustrated about how hard it is to collect moonberries. I felt that way at first, too, but gradually I have become more consistent about getting moonberries.
If you're having trouble getting moonberries, here are a few suggestions that have helped me:
First, to get one purple moonberry, you need a score of 121 or above. If you score 141 or above, you get 2 purple moonberries. I LOVE those scores above 141!
To get a score of 121 and above is a combination of luck and skill. My strategy is to try to maximize my scores in these categories: Pickleberry, Moonberry, 3 of a kind, 4 of a kind, and free roll, and also to make sure I score in mixed basket.
I reserve Jumbleberry and Sugarberry for my unlucky rolls, since you can't score much in these no matter what. A 2 instead of an 8 in Sugarberry only loses 6 points; a 7 instead of 21 in Moonberry loses 14 points!
I usually try to get 3 and 4 of a kind using moonberries or pickleberries. Getting 3 or 4 of a kind with the reds and yellows loses a lot of potential points, but if it's near the last rolls of the game I'll take whatever comes since even a low score is better than a zero.
I save the purples as much as possible because they're worth so much more. For example, if I roll 3 yellows, 1 red, and 1 purple on the first turn, usually I'll ditch the yellows and reds and save the purple, hoping to get more purples on the second and third rolls. In the end, three purples are much more valuable than 4 (or even 5) yellows and reds.
5 of a kind is the tricky one. You can still score 121 or above even taking a 0 in five of a kind, as long as you score well in the other areas I talked about. I've gotten many moonberries at the end of the game despite getting a zero in 5 of a kind.
So if I've got a choice of putting a low score of 0 or 7 in moonberries, or taking a 0 in 5 of a kind, I'll usually take the 0 in 5 of a kind. For example, you're actually better off scoring 21 in moonberries and 0 in five of a kind (21 points total) than scoring only 7 in moonberries and 10 in five of a kind (17 points total).
If I roll a purple and a green early in the game, I usually save them and go for mixed basket since the odds are very good that I will get a red and yellow. If for some reason I don't get the red and yellow, I'll still have a high roll for other places. If you have to take a 0 in mixed basket, it's really hard to score above 121, since you missed out on at least 15 points.
Truthfully, I find that my worst games tend to happen when I get greedy and try for a 5 of a kind, but don't have anywhere to put the roll if it doesn't happen.
I know it's very tempting to put a bad roll in free roll, but usually you're better off putting those bad rolls in Jumbleberry and Sugarberry, and trying to score a high free roll of 20+ points with purples and greens.
Lastly, don't fret if you don't get a moonberry. This guide is certainly not a fool-proof method to guarantee moonberries, but rather a strategy to improve your chances. Even using all of these hints, you will most likely NOT get a moonberry more often than you will get a moonberry, just like Alex Rodriquez will NOT get a hit more often than he will get a hit. (But those scores above 140 sure are sweet!) If 121 just doesn't work for you, start out aiming for 101 instead, which will guarantee you a green pickleberry.
Please add any other tips or suggestions, or let me know if this helps. I also posted this info in my other thread, http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...erries-603141/ but my friends Stylede and GranKinz convinced me that this information belonged on a thread of it own so more people would see it.
Awesome job Linus!! I love your new thread! This is very good info! I use pretty much the same methods myself, I just haven't had the time nor mental clarity lately to do a nice write-up like this! Thank you!! I am sure many people will benefit from this. Good job.
