Happy Valentine's Day: Tine 10 Year Anniversary

February 14, 2020 at 12:00 AM

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day! Team Egg Cave loves you. The Chocotravaganza Exchange is back... and we have a very, very special announcement. The highly-coveted Tine has returned for its 10 year anniversary and is available as a Chocotravaganza Exchange prize!


New To The Chocotravaganza Exchange? Here's How It Works

The Chocotravaganza Exchange is our annual February event. Here's how it works.

  • Get Chocolate Boxes from feeding creatures around Egg Cave
  • Head over to the Exchange HQ and send Chocolate Boxes to other players and your friends
  • Using the Chocolate Boxes that you have received from others during the Exchange, get exclusive love- and heart-themed prizes, including the Tine, from the Prize Shop
  • Use the Exchange HQ to keep up to date on who has sent you what (so maybe you can return the favor!)

The Exchange will be open to collect Chocolate Boxes February 14-21. After that, you will have more time to spend your remaining Chocolate Boxes in the Prize Shop.

New Prizes This Year: Tine

This year, the incredibly popular Tine has returned to celebrate its 10 year anniversary. You can obtain it through the Chocotravaganza Exchange.

New Prizes This Year: New Travels

There are four newcomer Travel prizes as part of the Exchange.

Would it be against the rules to make a thread offer EC/Pets for chocolate? I really want to get enough chocolate for a Valentine's Tine. Its been a major dreamy of mine but the Tine was so unattainable. This may be my only chance
