“The Magic Ride” – Howrse’s Holiday Promotion

Published by at 5:08 pm under Divines/Specials,News

New Divine Wind Horse – Eurus

Personally, I am very excited for this promotion. It requires little work and offers some good prizes without needing equus or passes to get them. The overall promotion is a board game – you roll the die every 8 hours and select the space you would like to move to. If you move to an empty space, nothing happens. But you can move to a teleporter, which will bring you to a new space in the same turn (it will tell you the space if you hover your mouse over the image), go to a challenge space, offering extra die rolls, or land on a space that provides you with a small gift, great gift, or exceptional gift. The object of the game is to get the key and move onto the next board. You need 25 keys to get a new divine wind horse – Eurus.

Any gifts you pick up along the way will be put under you “Christmas Tree” and you can open them on the 25th of December. Click on the links below to see the gifts that each one holds:

That’s really all there is to it – just continue to roll the die and sit back as you earn various prizes on the board or make progress towards earning the keys. The promotion ends January 6th.

Sorry guys! It completely slipped my mind to post the challenges.
