    The only ones I don't have for this event are Iceling and Arctic. None of the Iceling pieces are THAT far off the Arctic path, so I'm really hoping to land them both. Iceling I definitely will, going to have to see if I can make it the rest of the way to Arctic from there. Spinning 1s more than half the time is not helping, though.

    I have made a route which will get me Iceling, Brave and Arctic. The prices don’t look to extreme.

    We need always a bit luck with the dice. If we have to go back and forth several times in the top region, it can be difficult.

    There aren't any formations that could cause that this time around, though - all the catapults, and Arctic itself, are at the end of corridors so you don't need an exact spin to land on them.

    That said, ICEBERG? A trivially breedable Common as an event prize? That's just silly.

    They also seem to have cut off the Freebies, when I'm pretty sure the timer on that prize said it was going through today till the end of the event. Which pretty much nixes my chances at Bunny.

    FYI, it currently looks to me like the probability of any given chest having a bunny decreases each time you get a bunny from a chest with the same cost, and eventually reaches 0.

    There is something decidedly unusual going on with these chests. Their contents are NOT fully reproducible using airplane mode. Except that if you follow the same path, you do get the same results. And it's not a predetermined sequence like the Tower spins, either. For example, if I start from the space 1W of the first Sweetest, go 1N (bunny), then 1W (200k gold). Whereas I can alternatively go back 1W (already claimed), then 1N (bunny, even though that chest was 200k on the last route!), then 1E (bunny). Or 1N (bunny) 1E (bunny) 1E (bunny) - three bunnies in a row instead of one being gold.

    I haven't sussed out exactly what the variables are - for a while I thought it might be the direction you entered the square from, but I ended up disproving that. But I rather suspect that if you take each step in airplane mode, then

    a) If it was a bunny, turn off airplane mode and do something else (e.g. Ancient World and back) to save. Turn airplane mode back on, take another step.
    b) If it wasn't, quit, turn off airplane mode, restart, and pick a different square to buy next.

    you can likely get every single chest you open to be a bunny. Which would make even 8 bunnies for 600 a bad deal, that's 75 per bunny and there are oodles of squares costing 70 or less.

    Will update as I do more tests and learn more.

    Update: OK, turns out to not be every chest. You can get most, but you do end up sometimes at a point where no chest you can pick turns out to be a bunny. Ended up at 10 bunnies from 11 moves after the first collection interval.

    Further update: Yeah, seriously weird. I've currently gotten into a state where every chest of the same cost gives the same result, which wasn't the case before. There's obviously some rule here - it is a computer program after all - but I can't think what it might be!

    The new Legendary costs 999/999. Yeah right. 🙄

    So at this point I find myself with the Rescue complete, so I don't want the keys currently available in the second row. I already have Pigheaded which is the first-row option, and it'll disappear in 120 moves anyway, so no point spending moves there either. And of course the third row is pathetically irrelevant.

    Guess I'm waiting for the Rescue to expire, then focusing on the second row until Pigheaded expires (look how little essence those chests have, as high-end prizes! SP seriously doesn't want us to do any actual trading, apparently), and then I'll see if the L Chibi is reachable. I'm guessing no.

    I do like that they massively boosted the return on the breed/hatch tasks, AND paired them up so the ones you just bred are the ones you need to hatch next. If only they hadn't then made them extra-hard. IMO this setup with the previous scaling on task difficulty would've been ideal.

    With the third Puzzle Island chest, fight #9 is enough keys to complete the rescue.

    Interesting for me fight 8 and all chests from puzzle island was enough to finish. Though I received several blue keys from the freebies.

    Surprisingly the rescue itself was easy. The only issue was the waits for the keys.

    If you get the fourth chest, yes - basically each fewer chest you get makes you do one more yellow-key fight.

    Opening the door after node 12 requires either completing the entire key quest, or getting the third chest from the puzzle island (and I'm not 100% sure that would be enough, I'm projecting a bit past what I can reach in airplane mode). This is just plain crazy.

    After giving it some more time, I'm concluding that this feature is, as it stands, completely and utterly pointless. Essence is so rare and expensive (1400 grid coins for 2C/1VR?!?) that you can't expect to actually trade in any meaningful way.

    @Kevin-N-Scott had the best idea, I think - drop essence entirely, and limit it just by time.
