No offence to anyone suddenly noticing and posting about the mysterious egg but I did post about this on another thread yesterday... Seems I've been ignored
Not too much of an issue, I'm just glad to hear about the rotation of colours. I can start to see that community score (1 off a trillion!) won't take as long as expected.

My thoughts... complete waste of time.
Firstly it took me half an hour of performing every emote to every object in the space and running around the whole space several times trying to find the reward before I found someone who told me that I had to play the game to get the reward (thanks Rene). Lockwood could have said something about changing how rewards are issued.
Secondly I played the Eggcellent Plan game spin-off for bout the same time I spent looking for it (half hour) and got the sand castle.
Based on how many eggs need to be collected I think its safe to say this game is aimed at people who have nothing better to do with their lives. The game in mind numbingly boring. The rewards aren't the best (in my opinion). I'm not going to worry myself too much with this game. Its clear the space is more about Lockwood getting large visit stats than customer enjoyment.

"As for obtaining the items, I think realistically it would take around 30+ hours to obtain everything if you have the patience for it."
Since the reopening of Home after todays update all Homies together managed to stomp on 8.2 million eggs in more than12 hours.
To get the community reward within 30+ hours, we have to smash about 9 million eggs every second!
BTW. you have to collect 50 pink and 25 green eggs per minute to gain the other rewards within 30+ hours. You're good if you kick 75 eggs per minute alone independent of their color.
Sorry to smash your illusion, but you can't cheat math.
Based on what I collected:
8000+ eggs per hour
300+ of each colour in that timeframe
300+ multiplied by 10 hours = 3000+ of each colour
Multiplied by 3 to 30 hours = 9000+ purple
Therefore in that timeframe you will have realistically obtained blue, green and almost all purple eggs. Then the mystery egg, if that doesn't pop up in 30 hours of attempting it, then I dunno what the requirement for that would be.
As for the community reward there's little you can do about that due to it being counted on red eggs smashed rather than overall totals. You don't have to spend time trying to obtain it and can simply check in on it's progress if you so choose to do so.
So realistically, 30-35 hours seems about right to me.
My hat goes off to whomever can run around this enclosed little area stomping like a lunatic for 30-35 hours for a mediocre prize at best. I know platinum trophies that can be won in less time with far greater enjoyment value.

I don't think it will take anything like that amount of time. I collected 500 blue eggs in less than 10 minutes today without the help of the special outfit so I'm sure you can do 5000 green ones in an hour / hour and a half easy on the correct day.

I'd like to know who in FarmWood came up with the concept that kicking eggs in a space that has about 4fps can be anywhere close to entertaining, I mean what was the point o. 0 Mini games.. they're suppose to be fun, not something you'd likely do on an MMO, only on an MMO it's normally worth farming <,<
If they want us to waste 30+ hours of are life's doing this they could have at least put some time and some effort in the rewards... Nothing really seems worth all the truble.
