It's Game Day!

It's time to earn lots of Pandanda Coins and maybe even Panda Gold by doing what almost all kids like best - playing games with friends!

Yep, all you have to do is play the multiplayer games in Pandanda - Pen the Pig, Line 4, Ghosts of Misty Hill, and Bunny Chase - and you will earn double the normal amount of coins EVERY TIME you play during Game Day today.

As a bonus, if you find a Moderator hosting a special game of Ghosts of Misty Hill or Bunny Chase, you have the chance to win up to 250 Panda Gold! You will know it is a special Panda Gold Game because the Mod will tell you. You can't ask for Panda Gold - just play the game with the Mod, and maybe you will be one of the lucky winners! You can win Panda Gold one time from each Mod today.

If you are still a bit confused about how Game Day works, just scroll back to my blogpost from yesterday. There is more information there!

I welcomed Game Day by joining almost 450 of my Pandanda Pals at 12am Pandanda Time this morning. We played Ghosts of Misty Hill and Bunny Chase over all of the servers, and 76 different players won Panda Gold! I am getting ready to head back into Pandanda right now for about an hour to have more fun!

Game on, Pandas!

Saturday is Game Day!


Are you ready for Game Day on Saturday? Make sure your ghost-catching backpacks and bunny-catching nets are ready to go, so you can earn lots of Pandanda Coins, and maybe even Panda Gold!

All day long on Saturday, every multiplayer game will award Double Coins! That means every time you play Pen the Pig, Line 4, Ghosts of Misty Hill, and Bunny Chase, you will receive twice as many Pandanda Coins as you usually do. There is no limit to the amount of Pandanda Coins you can win!

Plus, you will have a chance to win Panda Gold from Moderators in games of Bunny Chase and Ghosts of Misty Hill. The Mods will be hosting as many games as they can fit into their shifts, giving you lots of chances to win Panda Gold. But instead of  awarding 10 or 25 Gold like they usually do, they will award 250 Gold and 100 Gold!

Now, not every Bunny or Ghost game you play will be for Gold. Only games where a Moderator is there, and that Mod has said that the game will be for Gold. The Mods will be traveling around to all of the servers, so you might have a better chance of winning if you play on a less-crowded server!

There is one change for Game Day to the usual rules for Panda Gold games. Normally, the rule is that you can only win Panda Gold once a day. But for Saturday only, you can win more than once a day, but you can only win Gold once from each Moderator.

For example, say you won Panda Gold from Maxxwell. If you play another game with Maxxwell, you can't win any more gold from him. But, if you see another Mod, like Skippers, later, and play and win a game with him, you CAN win Panda Gold again! Every Mod will be keeping a list of their winners.

One rule has not changed - NO POTIONS! Just use your regular Panda skills to catch those bunnies and ghosts, with no help from turbo or bunny potions. I know everyone will play fairly!

Sheriff Steele and I will be popping in during the day to play some games with you, too! We are looking forward to catching lots of ghosts and bunnies with our friends!

Game on, Pandas!

Follow That Arrow Contest WINNERS!

Hi Panda Pals!

Are you ready to find out who won the Follow That Arrow Contest? I know, that's a really silly question, right! Ok, no more waiting - here are the 6 Winners:
  • Cool4Girls
  • Renae9
  • mathewbear
  • glowbie
  • BrookeXoXo
  • timmpo
Congratulations! Each of those Pandanda citizens correctly identified where each of the 10 arrows is located, and where each points to. And Cool4Girls was the very first player to send in the correct answers!

Each winner has already been sent an email with their 6 Month Elite Membership Gift Certificate link, and has had 200 Panda Gold deposited into their Pandanda account. The 5000 Panda Power will also be added to their account.

I'm so happy that so many of you enjoyed the contest! I've got a couple more contests that are similar in mind, so you can look forward to those!

For those of you who are wondering, here are the correct answers for all of the arrows:


 

The arrow that was the trickiest for the most people was definitely Arrow #5. Since there are two gates that look pretty much alike in Harvest Grove, you really had to pay attention to the details to get the right answer for the "where does it point to" part!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate in the contest and send in an entry. You are all awesome! I hope you will congratulate the winners if you run into them on Pandanda!

Party on, Pandas!

Zing Ballyhoo!!

I hope you've made it over to Treehouse Lobby to welcome Zing Ballyhoo back to Pandanda. A lot of you have already gotten his first prize. Way to go! All you have to do is collect 10 of his Golden Tickets, then exchange them to Zing for his prize.

I did hear that some of you were having trouble seeing the prize after you got it. If anyone is still having trouble, please log out of Pandanda, clear your browser cache, then log back in and try again. You can find instructions for clearing your browser cache here.

I have checked all of the Follow That Arrow contest entries, and have made a list of all of the Pandas whose entries were 100% correct. We will be doing a random drawing for 5 winners from all of those names on Tuesday, then I will announce all 6 winners on Wednesday. Just be patient a little while longer!

Party on, Pandas!

Last Chance to Enter Contest!

Hi Friends!

The deadline for submitting your entry in the Follow That Arrow Contest is just a few hours away! Only entries received by 11:59pm Pacific Time (Pandanda Time) today, September 23rd, will be eligible to win. I will announce the winners here in my Blog this Wednesday, September  26th. Good luck to everyone who entered!

Be on the lookout for Zing Ballyhoo on Monday. He is on his way to Pandanda, and is really looking forward to seeing everyone again! I'm sure Questy will enjoy having Zing's company for a few weeks at Treehouse Lobby.

Party on, Pandas!

Get Ready For Zing Ballyhoo!

Wow, with all the excitement over the Follow That Arrow Contest, I almost forgot about another exciting Pandanda event - Zing Ballyhoo is coming back to Pandanda!

That's right, Zing will be back in Pandanda on Monday, September 24th. He will set up his blue and gold tent at Treehouse Lobby, and will scatter his Golden Tickets all over Pandanda land. Then he will wait for you to collect 10 Golden Tickets to exchange for his cool, super-secret prizes! I can't wait!

Zing's return isn't the only awesome thing happening next week. There is also a Pandanda Game Day on Saturday, September 29th. On Game Day you can win double coins for all multi-player games you play that day. And you also have the chance to win up to 250 Panda Gold from Moderators during special games of Bunny Chase and Ghosts of Misty Hill. I'll have more information about Game Day for you later in the week!

You still have until 11:59pm Pandanda Time on Sunday, September 23rd to send your Follow That Arrow Contest entry to contest@pandanda.com. You can read my post from yesterday if you need more information about the contest.

A few players have been confused about where to send their entry. contest@pandanda.com is not a website that you go to - it is an email address. You cannot send your entry from your Account Management page. To send your entry, you must open your email program and start a new email with contest@pandanda.com in the "TO" field. Then just type your Panda name and the answers for all 10 arrows in the message of the email, and send it to us!

I will announce all 6 contest winners here in my Blog on Wednesday, September 26th.  I do already know who one winner is - the player we received the first correct entry from. But I'm keeping that a secret until Wednesday!

Party on, Pandas!

Here is Arrow #6 in the Follow That Arrow Contest. Do you know where to find it?

Please do not send in any answers yet! We have received entries from several more pandas, and they have all been deleted because they didn't follow the rules. You have to send in the answers for all 10 arrows at the same time. Only 6 arrows have been revealed so far, so it is impossible to send in a complete and correct entry right now. Contest entries will only be accepted after the 10th arrow is in my blog on September 21st.

If you have already sent in an entry, you can still send in a complete and correct entry on September 21st. Make sure to review all of the rules of the contest so your entry will be eligible to win. Happy hunting!

You know, there are a lot of wild, weird, and wonderful things you can wear on your head in Pandanda, and I want to see them! This Wednesday, September 19th, will be another awesome Hat Day!

I will be making some visits to Pandanda on Wednesday to check out all of my friends wearing their favorite hats. I'll let you know tomorrow  the times I plan to visit, but for now, start going through your closet to figure out what you want to wear!

Party on, Pandas!

Follow That Arrow Contest - Day 1

I wrote a long blog post yesterday, describing the Follow That Arrow Contest and explaining how the contest will work. You can click here to read that post, but I will give a short review before I reveal the Arrow #1.

Each day for 10 days I will post a picture of one of the directional arrows that can be found all over Pandanda. Your job is to correctly identify two things about each arrow: a) which room the arrow is in, and b) which room the arrow points to.

After the 10th arrow has been posted here on September 21st, you will put all of your answers into one email, then mail it to me at contest@pandanda.com. Since you can't send your answers in until the 21st, you might want to either create a document on your computer or use a notebook to write your answers for each arrow. Then, on the 21st, you can gather all of your answers together and send them in!

Drumroll, please!~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~  Here is Arrow #1 in the Follow That Arrow Elite Membership Contest:
Arrow #1
Use your detective skills to find this arrow in Pandanda. Then, wherever you are keeping track of your answers, write down a) the room you found the arrow in, and b) the room you go to when you follow that arrow. That's all there is to it! Tomorrow, you will have a different arrow to figure out.

Prizes
There will be 6 Winners of this contest:
  • The first correct, eligible entry received after the 10th arrow is displayed on my blog on September 21st will be a winner.
  • 5 winners will be randomly chosen from all of the correct, eligible entries received by the contest deadline of 11:50pm PST on Sunday, September 23, 2012.
The 6 Winners will each receive:
  • a 6-month Elite Membership Gift Certificate
  • 5000 Panda Power
  • 200 Panda Gold.
Remember, do not send in your answers yet. Any entries received before the end of the contest on September 21st will be discarded. You must have the answers to all 10 arrows before you can send in your entry! You can review all of the rules of the contest here.

Happy Searching, and Good Luck!

Follow That Arrow Contest Begins Tomorrow!

Hello Panda Friends!


I know you have been anxiously waiting for a new Pandanda Elite Membership contest, so here it is - the first ever Pandanda Follow That Arrow contest!

This contest will begin tomorrow, September 12th, and will last for 10 days. Each day I will post a picture of one of the arrow signs that can be found all over Pandanda. Those arrows point to the entrance to the next room. Your job will be to correctly identify two things about each arrow: a) Which room the arrow is in, and b) which room the arrow points to.

This is NOT a contest arrow!
Confused?  Don’t be! Here is an example. Look at the picture of this arrow. First you need to figure out where you can find that arrow in Pandanda. You might have to look VERY carefully at the little details around the arrow to make sure you have found the right one.  When you have found the arrow in Pandanda, write down the name of the room it is in. This arrow is in The Den.

The next thing you have to find out is where you will go if you follow that arrow. That’s easy enough – just follow the arrow and see where you end up! This arrow in the Den will take you to Tree House Lobby. So there you have your two answers – a) The Den, b) Tree House Lobby. Remember, this arrow was just an example. It is not part of the contest!

After the 10tharrow has been posted in my blog on Friday, September 21st, you will send an email to contest@pandanda.com with your two answers for each arrow. So your contest entry should look something like this:

Arrow 1  a) the room the arrow is in. b) the room the arrow points to.
Arrow 2  a) the room the arrow is in. b) the room the arrow points to.
Arrow 3  a) the room the arrow is in. b) the room the arrow points to.

and so on, all the way to Arrow 10. Of course, instead of “the room the arrow is in” and “the room the arrow points to”, you will put the names of the correct rooms for each arrow!

There is a limit of one entry per Pandanda account. Entries that are sent in before the last arrow is posted on September 21st will be eliminated. Entries must be received at contest@pandanda.com no later than 11:59pm PST on Sunday, September 23, 2012.  The winner will be announced on Wednesday, September 26, 2012 in my Blog.

Prizes
There will be 6 Winners of this contest:
  • The first correct, eligible entry received after the 10th arrow is displayed on my blog will be a winner.
  • 5 winners will be randomly chosen from all of the correct, eligible entries received by the contest deadline of 11:50pm PST on Sunday, September 23, 2012.
The 6 Winners will each receive:
  • a 6-month Elite Membership Gift Certificate
  • 5000 Panda Power
  • 200 Panda Gold.

To submit your entry (have your parent or guardian help you):
  • Read and obey the rules. Entering the competition means that you and your parent/guardian agree to the rules. A complete list of the rules can be found here. If you are under 13 years old, please ask your parent or guardian to review them with you, along with our website Terms of Use, specifically with regard to the use of submissions you send to us.
  • Ask your parent or guardian to email your entry to contest@pandanda.com from their email address, the one they used when they signed you up for Pandanda. Your entry MUST come from the email address that we have on file for your Pandanda account. You can see what that email address is by logging into your Account Management page.
  • Type the words "Follow That Arrow Contest" in the subject line of the email.
  • Type your Panda name in the body of the email for example "Panda Name: Paige."
  • Do NOT include your real name, house address, phone number, or password.
  • Email your entry as soon as you have the answers for all 10 arrow pictures, but Pandanda must receive it no later than Sunday, September 23, 2012 at 11:59pm, Pacific Standard Time (PST). Entries received before the 10th arrow is posted on September 21, 2012 will be eliminated.
  • You may only send in one entry per Pandanda account.
  • Your entry must be in a format similar to the following example: 
  • 1. a) the room the arrow is in. b) the room the arrow points to
  • 2. a) the room the arrow is in. b) the room the arrow points to 
  • 3. a) the room the arrow is in. b) the room the arrow points to  
  • continuing through number 10.  
  • If you have any questions regarding the contest or contest rules you may contact us at contest@pandanda.com with the subject line "Questions About Follow That Arrow Contest Rules". We will respond as soon as possible.
Tomorrow I will post the first arrow picture to officially start the contest! I hope you are ready!

Party on, Pandas!
