Greetings to all across the land! In the spirit of giving, kingdoms far and wide are searching for things to present to their friends and loved ones. Festivities begin with the finding of the perfect items, but then there is the matter of wrapping! Thankfully, we sometimes can find help with that part!

[==Update requires Level 15+ to participate, and is available from 12/10 to 12/21 @ 4pm.==]

I've been playing a game! Have you figured out this week's answer? The answer is: GIFT



Hey guys! I think I found the issue with the task to place a Gift Box, and am working to get the fix tested and pushed out.

In the meantime, that task should still work if you place the Gift Box received from the Mystery Gift Box craft - however, you must place the Gift Box immediately after the task completes. Do not store the item first, as that may cause the task to not complete.

RESOLVED

Alright, the fix is live! I confirmed on my account that placing a Gift Box out of your inventory completes Task 2 of "Chocolate Giftwrapping?" :)

Additionally, we went ahead and removed the task button, so that it doesn't contribute to any confusion as to how to complete that task.

Thanks for your patience everyone! I hope you enjoy the rest of the event :)

2 new crafts in the work shop

Won't let me upload pics for some reason.

The snowmen orbs are obtained from chopping mystery gift boxes.

The pic above doesn't show the text above the first craft:
"Get 1 of 6 new decorations for your kingdom"

With my luck I'll get the poinsettias every time....lol

Did that part of the goal get ticked off for you already? Oh, no, I hope not.
I was able to send requests out after each new one came in from a nbr since I knew they were on. Mine didn't close until after I got 12.

Also, newpam575 above posted they are now giftable.

Gotta give it to S8 for keeping us on our toes! I didn't know if I should just ask for one ribbon, that maybe other requests would be needed as well or go all out and risk getting overflow .... so I did a happy medium and sent out 10 requests.

PrincessCupOButter
12-10-15, 12:49 PM
I sent out 20 requests, and was saving stormie for later....since I've received 9 ribbons so far, I decided to send out a few more requests from neighbors who are currently requesting them. No such luck. The ability to ask is gone.

I just read that they added the ability to gift them. That's good, but hopefully we won't be limited to sending one per day as we were with the felt and leaves (or at least I was).

Assuming we get a different mystery gift each time, it will take a minimum of 6 ribbons to collect all gifts (I'm with Lorraine....with my luck I'll end up with all poinsettias). But who knows how many gifts we will need to make to get the snowman orbs.
This isn't a complaint.....it looks like it will be fun! And won't chain me to the iPad!! But could someone from the staff or a moderator please find out if there will be additional ways to collect ribbon? Or will the ability to request it be back?

Hey guys! Here to clarify the Holiday Ribbons... They come from gift requests, unrelated to the task in the first quest. That task is just a way to quickly get you the first ribbon :)

Every request you accept through gifting will give you 3 Holiday Ribbons each.

Hope that helps, and you all have fun with the event!

Gift requests as in we can only send out 3 a day as opposed to neighbor requests?

Yes, I believe so. The event is tuned with the 3/day limit in mind, so if you're sending/receiving your limit of 3 (which grants you 9 Holiday Ribbons total, 3 per gift) you should be right on track!

How many ribbons will we be able to send and recieve daily? I know we are limited to sending three gifts daily, but of the three, I was only ever able to send one holiday felt and one leaves per day.


I sure wish I'd sent out more requests too. :( I'm stuck at 10 ribbons, and I definitely sent to active players. Starting out with 15+ would have been a great boost.

Has anyone crafted the gift box? How many orbs can we get from one box? If only old Thomas and ivy give coins, then I think I can craft 3 boxes per day. So the orbs's dropping is critical here since the decoration's Radom rate is 1/6 possibility. Wish me good luck :D

Oeps... I sent out 311 requests as I imagined I could send out only 1 request and then the boxed will be checked.

So now I have 24 Holiday Ribbons in inventory, and 287 neighbours that will still recieve my request over the next days...

Which isn't nessecarily a bad thing, only when I need to sent out another request in the next few days...

I have sent out tons of requests yet, I haven't received anything. I have answered several requests but I still don't see anything. My neighbors are great. They always come through when asked. I have force closed my game 2x just to be sure thats not the issue. I hate these kind of tasks.


Update : I have force closed for a 3rd time and the original requests from my neighbors that I responded to earlier are back like I never sent them. I think it's a sign to give up on this game :D

I was asking neighbors for ribbon as I got requests from them (hoping to get an active neighbor and wanting to save my requests in case the next step required more neighbor requests). After two requests, someone answered mine. And now I can't ask for more. Not happy that we have one chance to ask neighbors and then we're stuck hoping that we get ribbons as gifts. My neighbors are great at responding to requests, but I only have a small handful of neighbors that I exchange gifts with.

Please, S8, provide a way to continue to ask neighbors for ribbon!

are we supposed to also receive ribbons when we accept requests for them? I accepted a gifted ribbon before sending requests, so my goal box is checked off. Then I accepted a slew of requests, but only have 3 in my inventory. No change after force closing.

I have the same question about how to send more ribbon requests once it disappears. AND, my goal says there is one gift in my inventory to purchase but, there is not.

Any ideas?

Those 3 should translate to 9, at least. Each gift is 3 actual ribbons.

The next task asked me to buy a gift, but there are no gifts in the market?
That was quick... The "buy" now says "place" BUT since I already placed my bonus one it didn't tick off the goal. Assuming it will once I place the one that's crafting. My first present yielded 1 snowman orb and one ribbon. (1 chop after placing)

Yes, that was fast! But it doesn't work! I already placed and then because nothing happend chopped the first box before the change. Now the goal isn't ticked off... I also assumed that the box I crafted would do the trick but I just collect that one and it doesn't work! The "place" button in the goal now takes me nowhere. I also tried placing it with the edit mode but it doesn't register... So now I'm just stuck on the goal!

Hey all... Especially those that didn't get to request ribbons... I wouldn't panic too much after thinking about it...
The Ivy/ old Thomas drops (chocolate coins) will be more limiting than the 9 ribbons a day from gifting. If you have regular trade partners, I definitely would communicate with each other and get on the same page about gifting ribbon, though.

I don't know if I can be as calmed as you. I woke up and saw 2 of my neighbor sent me 2 (6) Ribbons. I accepted them then the ask button never popped up, all I get is the green checked mark. I was unable to ask my neighbor for ribbons, not even one. I feel so frustration to have only 9 Ribbons from gifts a day. I want my ask button back.

Try putting the gift back in storage, then do a force close & come back to place it after that. Hoping that works for you unless that's how you just did it. *fingers crossed for you*

I'm wondering if all those who lost the option to request ribbons from nbrs are on android????

mreames
12-10-15, 04:55 PM
I understand but the reality is you need 1 ribbon for every 10 chocolate coins. If you collected from Ivy twice a day and from old Thomas for every 2 hours for even 20 hours, that's a max of 48 chocolate coins. That means you'll use 4 ribbons for making mystery gift boxes and occasionally 5. That leaves 5 or occasionally 4 a day for mystery decorations. But it is important to get those 9 ribbons a day.

I doubt they're all on android. This is one of those very rare cases where the early starters have an advantage over the later starters. People had already sent out gifts and those that accepted the gift before they could send out requests to neighbors, lost the ability to ask neighbors because that part of the goal was already completed by already having a ribbon.

I never got a chance to ask any of my neighbors for ribbons. When I opened the goal, it was already checked. It's not an android issue, because I play on my iPad. It's not really fair that some of us were unable to make any requests while others were able to make multiple requests, even hundreds.

It's not quite as bad as it seems if you check the math above, as long as you can get 3 people to gift you. Plus the grand gift that comes as a prize tried to give me some ribbons but I was maxed. I don't know how many ribbons it would've given but it did give 5 orbs.

Hey guys! I think I found the issue with the task to place a Gift Box, and am working to get the fix tested and pushed out.

In the meantime, that task should still work if you place the Gift Box received from the Mystery Gift Box craft - however, you must place the Gift Box immediately after the task completes. Do not store the item first, as that may cause the task to not complete.

I don't get it (either):
this morning I had made a mystery gift box; just collected, got 2, put them in inventory first, then placed them, and opened them. Then I saw the quest ?chocolate giftwrapping', but the 'place a gift box' was still open, had not counted.
Usually this happens automatically, even if I work around the right buttons it still counts. Not this time. Now I have to wait and wait, and then push the button before I place the gift box?! Or when I make a new one will I be asked (again) if I want to place them or take them to inventory, and do the first one now, will it work then?!

Why is this so weird?
If you don't know (like me) you may NOT place them in inventory first you're in bad luck, have to wait and guess what's going on (not everybody reads the forum)(or like me not in time).

I have all the supplies ready to make a Mystery Decoration now, but will hold off, cause I'm afraid it will mess up my quests....

Hey guys! Here to clarify the Holiday Ribbons... They come from gift requests, unrelated to the task in the first quest. That task is just a way to quickly get you the first ribbon :)

Every request you accept through gifting will give you 3 Holiday Ribbons each.

I accepted at least 20 requests but I only have 3 ribbons from one neighbor at start of game.

I accepted at least 20 requests but I only have 3 ribbons from one neighbor at start of game.

I am in the same boat, not receiving anything for accepting neighbors requests for ribbon, aswell as I never got a chance to send requests since the first goal skipped it when I mistakingly acepted one ribbon before i knew of the event :(

TL is watching us.. and taking over as well.
i send out requests for another goal (oinment) yesterday, still need 29..
so was not able to ask for ribbons

and now TL has changes my requests into ribbons.. and i do not like that at all.

i want to decide myself which items i ask and when!

this also means i am missing out on 21 ribbons asthose neighbours did send me oinment and won't get a ribbon request from me.. must be another bug.
if not, why bother playing a game if the gamedevelopers overrule our actions

also stuck on my goal for which i need to ask the ointment.. not allowed to make up my mind which item i want to ask from my neighbours. smells like dictatorship?

wish they had done that with me O_O same boat, i asked for oitment (i think...) was maxed out on requests but due to game design never got to ask for ribbons.....just they didnt replace my oitments with ribbons. i got 2x3 ribbons in total, from yesterday 3 and today 3......despite having accepted 4 ribbon requests overall.........very weird.

i crafted a mystery gift box as requested..
placed two gift boxes and a special gift box, but the goal refuses to award and keeps wanting me to place a gif box.

and the button here to upload a picture keeps hanging on the upload file thing.

They have acknowledged there is a bug in that part and are working on it. The next time you craft a gift, don't store it first. Hopefully then it'll work.

I didn't get the impression it was a bug, but I may have mis-understood of course!

Anyway, my waiting wasn't as long as I expected, luckily, and I tried another time, this time placed it immediately, and indeed, it worked okay now!
Thanx for helping!

I just received a pile of gifts:

I wonder about it: it's just deco, can't chop it.
I seem to remember having seen this in previous events, but then they gave stuff when you chopped it?!

Anyone else having received it, experiences?

(sorry if it has been mentioned in this thread, I can't recall, but I'm so confused about this event and other IRL-stuff my mind is a bit blurry...)

How do we request ribbons? Is there a button? A special pop-up? Searched left and right, top to bottom. Can't request ribbons. Last time I requested items was Thanksgiving, so no queue. I see my neighbors' requests coming in, so there must be a way. Suggestions please. Thanks.

That's the pile of gifts from last year's Christmas event. It used to have a timer and drop items, which was removed upon completion of the event, rendering the pile only deco.

I placed the gift immediately as suggested. But I did not get credit for opening the small gift under the all wrapped up goal. I only got credit for the larger gift. Did not do anything differently between the two types of gift.

Hey guys! I think I found the issue with the task to place a Gift Box, and am working to get the fix tested and pushed out.

In the meantime, that task should still work if you place the Gift Box received from the Mystery Gift Box craft - however, you must place the Gift Box immediately after the task completes. Do not store the item first, as that may cause the task to not complete.

Hi Carove, I think people are getting confused with the wording. The initial 'ask' where we clicked the button and selected neighbours was a bit of a nightmare for those that selected just one neighbour. After that option disappeared you need your neighbours to send them to you. When they say 'request' I would take this to mean write on neighbours walls and ask them. When a neighbour sends you a gift it is actually 3 ribbons (not just one). So as long as you have gifting neighbours you should get 9 (=3 ribbons from 3 neighbours) per day. Hope that makes sense?

How many ribbons will we be able to send and recieve daily? I know we are limited to sending three gifts daily, but of the three, I was only ever able to send one holiday felt and one leaves per day.


I sure wish I'd sent out more requests too. :( I'm stuck at 10 ribbons, and I definitely sent to active players. Starting out with 15+ would have been a great boost.
I only sent out to one nbr for that too. Task description was not explained very well now I'm all ready out of ribbons.

There are many neighbours who are not regular gifters suddenly sending me ribbons. I suppose they are hoping to receive some back, but I already use my daily 3x for my regular gifters. If I press "ignore" on their gifts, do they get a new chance to gift to someone else, or would that just turn it into a wasted gift as the gifting person does not get their gift chance re-opened for the day?

I've always wondered that myself.
I have a rotating gift list so I usually just accept them all everyday. Then if I get a gift from someone not on the rotation, I'll leave a message on their wall about it & that I'll return it as soon as I can.

If you 'ignore' a gift, they do not get another chance to gift someone else nor does the gift go back to them. They don't even get a notice that you ignored it; the gift just disappears into the ether... So never ignore a prezzie, lol.

I can see where the golden eggs could be a problem for some, but since I'm forever maxed on them, I'd gladly trade a few golden eggs for some chocolate coins. (I'm still doing lots of milk and dairy trades, so I'm picking eggs often! Lol)

So far I've gotten anywhere from 1-3 snowman orbs and a winter gate, an Ivy lamp post and one ribbon from the gifts boxes. But I've only chopped 4 due to the severe chocolate shortage. :rolleyes:

Do you need neighbors? I have 5 kingdoms and can send you ribbons from them. Let me know!


I turned in some finished packages and have one pointsetta, about six elves I think they are, two lamp posts, and two snowmen. I wish I didnt have the chop the gift boxes, they're SO pretty! Maybe if im lucky enough to win everything (which I doubt) ill be able to craft some more mystery boxes.

I like this one, seems simply enough as I dont need to turn in hard to come by materials. Just collect from three places and see what you get. I know some folks will throw fits, like when they didnt get stuff the last time...but im up for the challenge!

Super stress free, cant hate that. Considering im doing goals on about 6 games right now! Good luck everyone!

Now I wish I had my gem trees, to put the packages near. Or maybe its still on my kingdom? Got so much junk its hard to locate anything!

Morning everyone!

The fix for Chocolate Giftwrapping? is almost done being verified! I'll let you know when the fix should be live - at that point, that task will complete even if the Gift Box goes to your inventory first :) Additionally, that button will be removed, since it's not doing anything.

As a reminder, in the meantime this goal can be completed by placing the Gift Box you receive from the Mystery Gift Box craft. You must immediately place the Gift Box on your board - DO NOT STORE IT.

Thanks everyone! Hope you're enjoying the event :)

Anyone looking for a regular gifting neighbor?.?? I usually get gifts from my neighbors but for some reason they have all left me high and dry during this ribbon event. I absolutely promise to give you a gift each day even after this event. ���� add me carebear8724 if you need a giving neighbour

Wow thanks too everyone who added me that was quick, glad to see there is other castle story addicts just like me. Lol
Unfortunately I can only have 3 gifting neighbours so I did a first come first serve kinda thing. So thanks to Treno, Dar's Kingdom and Lithaney (I think) her name is printed in really pretty letters that I can't really read. Also thank you to everyone else who added me, and don't fret I visit all my neighbors kingdoms regularly and any request you send me will be promptly replied to.

Morning everyone!

The fix for Chocolate Giftwrapping? is almost done being verified! I'll let you know when the fix should be live - at that point, that task will complete even if the Gift Box goes to your inventory first :) Additionally, that button will be removed, since it's not doing anything.

As a reminder, in the meantime this goal can be completed by placing the Gift Box you receive from the Mystery Gift Box craft. You must immediately place the Gift Box on your board - DO NOT STORE IT.

Thanks everyone! Hope you're enjoying the event :)


Just wanted to thank you for being an awesome moderator I do not know what I would do without you on this forum! You're great!!
Happy holidays!

My first regular box gave mithril and orbs. Second one gave an ivy lamppost and orbs.

I'm going to perpetually be 1 behind on jingle bells I think. I had 5 at the end of yesterday due to the timing of the cottages that got pulled out and built. Collected 6 this morning. Unless I build another cottage I will always be one behind what I need....stupid cottages....what does ivy lamppost look like? I have a wreath lamppost.

Most of the "other" prizes from the regular gift boxes are from last year's Christmas event, part 2.

Probably should force close or just wait til the fix is implemented as stated by SourP4tch above.

Awww, yes. Here we go as I predicted yesterday.....

2 - elves
2 - poinsettias
1 - skating pond (which is way too big so I'm not putting it out)

Elves & poinsettias...all I want is the cute gingerbread house...pretty please...lol

Thanks! I just sent out an email to support a few minutes ago.. (Right after posting in here)

If I recall properly though the last box I crafted, I did place it right away instead of storing it. But it didn't seem to work for me.

Thanks for the info and I'll be watching here to see when the fix will be out.

Thanks again!

Do you need neighbors? I have 5 kingdoms and can send you ribbons from them. Let me know!


I turned in some finished packages and have one pointsetta, about six elves I think they are, two lamp posts, and two snowmen. I wish I didnt have the chop the gift boxes, they're SO pretty! Maybe if im lucky enough to win everything (which I doubt) ill be able to craft some more mystery boxes.

I like this one, seems simply enough as I dont need to turn in hard to come by materials. Just collect from three places and see what you get. I know some folks will throw fits, like when they didnt get stuff the last time...but im up for the challenge!

Super stress free, cant hate that. Considering im doing goals on about 6 games right now! Good luck everyone!

Now I wish I had my gem trees, to put the packages near. Or maybe its still on my kingdom? Got so much junk its hard to locate anything!
I need one more gifting neighbor

I was hoping to build more cottages, but when I try to place another one I get a message that I have to level up. I'm at level 50, so that's definitely not possible �� I have 14 on my board now, but I've seen more that in other neighbors' kingdoms. Does anyone know what I can do?

Is it still in the workshop? I went to place the fountain, didn't have space for it, canceled and it went back into the workshop.

This is my first post in the forums - so hello everyone! :cool:

Thus far I have received:

1 Special Gift Box - 1 Winter Tower & 2 Snowman Orbs
1 Grand Gift Box - 1 Elf

I've been playing this game for a while, and never thought to buy just a bunch of cottages to get through the goal & then just place them back in my inventory when done - even though I do that with my animals all the time. So thank you to whomever posted that they have 14 cottages :). I just wish we could have more than 2 workshops - especially when it comes to these timed quests.

3 elf gnomes in a row, not happy. I really don't like it when you have to use materials that are so hard to get and what you're making is random and repetitive. I would really prefer having to make each item seperately, even if it would require a little extra work.

Alright, the fix is live! I confirmed on my account that placing a Gift Box out of your inventory completes Task 2 of "Chocolate Giftwrapping?" :)

Additionally, we went ahead and removed the task button, so that it doesn't contribute to any confusion as to how to complete that task.

Thanks for your patience everyone! I hope you enjoy the rest of the event :)

Hey, thanks to developers for the fix! Now I am having another problem. I collected at Ivy's and didn't get any chocolates, and each time at Thomas' has only given 1 each. Have I missed what multi drops means?

I absolutely agree!

And while I do appreciate the Winter Tower, its not one of the 'Presents Galore!' prizes - so I am unable to advance in the quest. Additionally, there is not a 'Skip' option either. With that, on top of it being an timed event - it can make gameplay more stressful than fun. :/

If you are not maxed out on Chocolate Coins (the limit is 75), you should be getting 4 Chocolate Coins from every harvest of Old Thomas's House and Ivy's Hut. If this is not the case, please email support@storm8.com and let them know so we can look into the issue :)

Hi, just wanted to mention that gift boxes can also drop gift boxes. Chopped a special gift box and got a grand gift box (on top of the orbs and a winter wall).

So I'm quite fine on orbs now, but waiting for the bells despites having 15 cottages out (ok the last 3 I only put out very recently).

As for the decorations I'm with two poinsettas so far.

Cheers,

I'll gladly give you one of my ponds. They take up a massive 4 squares. Where do you get the grand gifts from?
