    New Quest - Australia Day - SPOILER

    A new quest just popped up for me - and I still haven't had the last one.
    Mind I am puzzled as a post in the thread https://forums.pocketgems.com/showth...poilers-(1-6)/ implies that there wouldn't be one this weekend!

    Australia Day - 48 hours

    Step 1
    Another great land is having a special celebration today! Wouldn't it be fun to celebrate with them?

    Do 3 Ruby mermaid searches to spread the news
    Tap 30 houses to invite guests
    Go on a short voyage to send greetings to Australia!

    Reward - 5 rubies 35 coins

    Step 2
    Things are looking great for the big celebration, but we should find something a little more like home for them.

    Check out the Great Reef! Tap 6 dolphins
    Build the Kangaroo Ranch (39 rubies - build time 60 minutes)

    Reward - 1000 pearls - 2 Black Pearls - 5000 coins

    I, too, haven't received the Hatching day quest, but I did receive this one. PC must be doing one of those roll out to limited groups.

    Yup, did the upgrade yesterday. I have the two flying birds in my cove, no island lurking around or quest. Didn't have the Hatching quest before the upgrade either.

    Cool

    I just got the quest too.

    On behalf of my fellow Aussies, may I say thanks to PG for recognising our national day. Very much appreciated.

    Hey Aussie,
    What is Australia Day? I'd like a history lesson as I have never heard of it.
    Thx!

    It's the celebration of the day that Australia gained independence, and went from being a colony of England to a nation in our own right. Very similar to July the 4th for Americans.

    Happy Australia Day to all down under and thanks PG for the new quest.
    Does anyone know if it is just 1 step or are there more to follow?

    Not sure I agree with your version of Australia Day Aussie.
    January 26 1788 was the day the First Fleet landed in Australia (at Sydney) and the beginning of a colony. The date would be comparable to the landing of the Mayflower in America I think.

    Australia Day is celebrated with sporting events, citizenship ceremonies, Australian of the Year awards and lots and lots of bbq's. The day is not without some controversy though, since the establishment of a new colony was done at the expense of the indiginous people (Aboriginees) in a similar way to American Indians.

    As for moving away from being a British colony, it was really January 1st 1901 - Federation Day - when the six colonies (states) formed a nation. But Jan 1st is not celebrated. We still have the Queen as our head of state. We are part of the commonwealth.

    PG: THANK YOU for the Quest

    I like this quest in honour of this holiday weekend. Thank you PG. Although, I didn't much like the mermaids stealing 2 of my rubies and handing me 10 pearls. (Something she seems to do a lot more lately.) I wasn't feeling much like celebrating then.

    Our Australia Day festivities are a wash out thanks to ex tropical cyclone Oswald.

    Claddagh - I stand corrected on your more specific account of the actual day we celebrate Australia Day. You are indeed correct, it is the day that the first fleet landed. But Australia Day is more than that to me and most Australians. It is a celebration of who we are - as a nation, a people, a culture, a way of life and an ideal. I guess, like Americans do on July 4th, we stop for a while and celebrate who we are.

    Haly - sorry to hear about the floods in your corner of oz. I guess it could have been worse though, it could have been a full-blown cyclone when it hit the coast, as has happened in the not-so-distant past. Anyway, I hope you have had a great day despite the water.

    Oh! They have turned it into a ruby quest. Not sure I like that.....

    I had to spend my rubies for the kangaroo ranch. Couldn't resist.
    A very quick simple quest to help celebrate our holiday!

    Any clues as to payout of the Kangaroo Ranch?
    Why canvas? Why not ROPES???
    Also how long to build?
    Need 1 black pearl for Ice Seller and gazillions for every other BP merchant.
    But tempted by The Dreadnought (cos I'm at THAT point in Paratoan where Hannibal is demolishing ALL of my ill equipped ships) and the Opal Merchant and I'm still short of rubies for those.
    Decisions decisions.
