Now, let’s dive deeper into the main details of the biggest entertainment of the festival – the Egg Hunt.

How Does the Egg Hunt Work?

So, how does this whole work in the game? Basically, you will enter an egg hunt against other villagers. If you don’t collect enough eggs, Abigail will win the Egg Hunt. Many players have been complaining that she wins all the time because, well, it’s not so easy to win this!

However, if you do win, you will receive a prize. If you win the first year, you will get a Straw Hat. If you win after the first year, you will get a reward of 1k Gold. That doesn’t sound too bad, right?

If you’re interested in the hunt itself, keep in mind that it will start in the middle of the square. Once you account for that, you can start creating your own strategy to win this egg hunt.

However, there is also the option of going with the recommended route. Below you will find a way to win the hunt, which is approved by many players.

As you can see, everything starts in the square with the player moving to the north-west part of the map to start collecting the first three eggs before moving south. Once you reach the water, you can start going east (through the bottom of the square) until you reach the middle of the map.

That’s where you will be able to find a lot (A LOT) of eggs, so try to be quick.

As you can see, this can be slightly confusing during the first year, but you can definitely win this festival activity if you follow the map.

Many players have said that this map helped them to finally win against Abigail for the first time in forever.

Here you go! Try to follow this map during the upcoming Egg Festival and see if it will be your lucky day!
