Welcome!

Hi there and welcome to Freebie Hunters! One of our favorite pastimes in Second Life is scouting the grid for fantastic hunts, sales, events and gifts from all the wonderful creators. We thought we'd share the wealth and showcase some of our finds in this blog, with an emphasis on the goodies available in the many SL hunts and events occurring every month. We do our best to show ALL items from a hunt/event and in the manner the creator intended, but this is not always possible.

An important reminder - All deals posted are subject to the whims of the item creators, and are often offered for a limited time (from hours to months). We do not guarantee the items are still available, and the creators are under no obligation to give anything.

Thank You to all of the creators!

The Gacha Garden, Nov'17 Round

Gacha-Garden-Logo

I had planned to take a couple weeks off from blogging because October was so crammed with stuff and Christmas is right around the corner which means lots of events to be getting ready for, but then I got a notice that the next round of the Gacha Garden was open, and well...I'm a sucker for the magic combination of gachas and gifts.

You do need to be a group member (free) to get the gifts, but if gachas are your personal crack, you would definitely want to be part of this group regardless. These events are always a lot of fun, with some pretty amazing designers for each round. I was good this time and kept my gacha playing to a reasonable amount, but be sure to check out the official blog page for more information on which designers are participating and what kinds of goodies they have out in the machines for the round this month.

I've included pics below of some of the gifts you can find as you follow the garden path around the event playing the machines. There are also Seed of Inspiration gifts for those of you who play the machines frequently - I believe it is every 20 pulls per machine to get the SoI gift as well.

Dates: November, 2017

Happy Gacha-ing!

Once Upon A Nightmare

event poster

You are going to have to move fast to get in on this fabulous event, my intrepid little hunters! The folks who bring you the Epiphany event have branched out a bit for Halloween and put together the Once Upon A Nightmare event. There are a massive amount of stores participating, and each store has two things going on: brand new releases at bargain prices for the event AND a hidden hunt item somewhere in their store with a free gift. This is an extremely short event, scheduled to run for just a week (from Oct. 23rd to 31st, although there was some talk in group about extending it a day or so), which means that if you are interested in giving it a shot, you really need to get going in order to have time to visit all the stores.

There is a group to join and a HUD to pick up (available at most of the participating stores or in group notices) which has all the Slurls. You can also get a list of Slurls from the official site if you prefer not wearing the HUD, but I absolutely recommend joining the group regardless - they are a wealth of information if you get stuck since there are very few clues (also on the official site) and some of those items are quite well hidden. The gifts are free, but not all of them are available the same - some will give their gift if you touch them, others are for sale (all were 0L except for 1 store which had it at 1L) and one or two of them were set to the hunt group, so you need the group tags on for those items to give up their gift. There were still a handful of stores not quite ready when I finished the hunt yesterday, so the group can also keep you updated as to which ones are still skips.

The new releases are identified by a big black coffin display (easy to spot!) and the hunt item is a stack of gold, black and copper boxes, engraved with "Once Upon A Nightmare". It was not recolored in any of the stores, but it was resized, so keep your eyes peeled - it can be really sneaky to spot.

This was a fun hunt to do - very long, but the stores were amazing and the group chatter was friendly, so it was a good time all around. If you have friends you hunt with, this makes a fantastic group effort, especially since some of the shops are pretty big and time is limited.
