“Set the Horses Free!”…Or hold onto them?

Published by at 2:08 pm under News

Howrse launched their next contest – “set the horses free”. I have a feeling players may not participate in this one as much.

To advance in the promotion, you can either give up one of your horses, removing it from the breeding farm, or use a “Joker horse” which can be earned by logging in each day, purchasing them with passes, or purchasing them with equus (the price will rise after each purchase). From my understanding, you cannot choose for what category you want to use the Joker horse for – it will be placed at random automatically.

There are four different difficulty levels: Easy, Average, Difficult, and Elite. Once you complete the tasks for six countries on the Easy level, you move onto the Average level. The tasks in the beginning obviously aren’t too hard and create a scavenger hunt for you. Experienced players with a myriad of horses were able to complete the promotion pretty fast – 400 players are on their way to the Elite level on the just the first day.

As the levels get harder, the prizes will get better – the grand prize is a new solar system divine – Venus. Instead of submitting your own horses, purchase some in the sales. Or if you don’t want to partake at all, look at the tasks and see if you own a horse that corresponds with it so you can sell the horse for a high price during the time of the promotion.

I personally won’t be participating in this promotion since I don’t have the time (which is also why this post doesn’t have graphics/a fancy format and is just a quick breakdown). If you have any questions, feel free to ask and I’ll try my best. Don’t forget about the thread in the Events forum on Howrse! Good luck!

    Hello every one. I’m having trouble with an objective. I need a horse born on sept 14th. Does anyone have one they would be willing to sale me? Please PM me on the international server.

    Wow even with M. Arms the FoY is a pain. Exchanging all of my FoY stockpiles for M. Bloods!

    Jokers are random my flank! The pattern is predictable and repeated on all my servers. So much for getting ‘3 in a row’ on a country. Oh well, at least the P. Saddle was easy, just two 15Ke foundies. (Nevermind I get P. Saddles in the Exchange cheaper, lol) Now I can’t wait for this silly contest to be over so we start seeing ‘+1 Pass’ UFO’s as that’s when I buy passes…

    Wow, that was fast into the next promo… Lottery!

    I like the Lottery in thew past, but there was no pass UFO’s at all from what I saw… I’ve come to expect them between promos.
