The “Dragon Egg Hunt” begins! Celebrate Alagaësia’s Easter by winning cool prizes!

hunt-bannerWe often celebrate Easter with exciting egg hunts through our homes, forests, and fields. Candy, money, and small toys can be found in the eggs, making the hunt even more exciting! In Alagaësia, we imagine children and families celebrate by hunting replica dragon eggs! The children who find the most dragon eggs would win fun knickknacks and gorge on sweets and treats!

We wouldn’t be true Alagaësians if we didn’t celebrate the holiday, so…

We’ve set up a Dragon Egg Hunt throughout Shur’tugal, with eleven hidden eggs to be found across the website! Each egg will reward you with a word, which you must keep (so write it down!), and the dragon inside will point you toward the next clue! You’ll want to pay close attention to each clue’s wording and make use of the site’s search engine (located below the top banner) to hunt down the pages hiding the eggs! The hidden egg will ALWAYS be at the bottom of the page it is hidden on!

To prevent cheating, we’ve passworded the final page! You’ll need to find the password, given by the final egg, to unlock the giveaway page, where you’ll submit all ten words you’ve collected to be entered into the giveaway! Only hunters providing all ten words will be eligible to win!

What are the prizes? One ultimate book and autograph set, including a signed 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition of Eragon, a signed copy of Inheritance, and a set of autographed goodies! Ten runner ups will win an autograph pack, containing signed Inheritance goodies! You’ll also earn the epic title of “Master Dragon Egg Hunter”!

The official rules:

  • Using the hint below, start your hunt by tracking down the first egg hidden on one of the site’s pages!
  • The hidden egg will always be at the bottom of the page you find it on!
  • Each dragon egg will reward hunters with a word, which you must write down! Once you finish the hunt, you’ll be prompted to enter all ten words to qualify for the giveaway!
  • Each dragon egg will offer a new clue, pointing you in the direction of the next egg! Read the clue carefully and use the site’s search engine to find the page.
  • The final dragon egg will give you a password to the giveaway page. Entering the password will grant you access, and allow you to enter the ten words to qualify for the giveaway!
  • Winners will be chosen at random on April 9th, so the speed at which you enter is not a factor! Winners will be contacted via email, and if we do not hear back within five days, we will have to choose another winner.

 Here’s your first clue!

Update: The secret, final passworded giveaway page is now properly linked on the final egg/clue page! We are very sorry for the inconvenience to all of the awesome Hunters who finished the Hunt so quickly!

Update #2: We’ve spoken with the two mischeievious eggs causing trouble yesterday! If you encountered the [Word Here] or double clue bugs, they’ve now been addressed. You’ll be able to complete the Hunt without issues. If you already participated and entered your words in the giveaway, your entry will still count! Learn more on our update post.

  • Serena McCoard

    I went through and found ALL words. Now it won’t let me enter any of them because it says the contest is no longer accepting entries…SERIOUSLY!? That’s a lot of work for NOTHING. Grrr…

  • James McCullen

    I can’t put in the password. it just flashes and returns to the password input page.

  • Guest

    i’m not so good at english and i didn’t read the books in english, so i think it is the cause of the problems i have to understand the tip after the 5th word about “Lord of Fellworth”

    • the HAMMER

      Where are you from? I speak a few foreign languages, I may be able to speak to you in your native tongue

  • dragos

    There are 9 words + 1 word aka password?

  • Christopher Tracey

    I found 11 different words, plus the password. Not sure how I managed that! Submitted the 11 I found, just in case.

    • Riley Mabry

      10 words plus the password, I believe.

      • Christopher Tracey

        I had 11 distinct, different words, plus a 12th word as password.

    • MasterBrom

      I found 11 words + the password too!! I submitted all 11!!

    • Asking for only 10 allows fans who may have missed a word or forgot to write one down a bit of wiggle room. It’s a big hunt in a short period of time, so I want to be fair to all.

      • Theano Xir

        so is it ok if we submited 11 words?

  • Theano Xir

    i have all the words and the password but i don’t know were i should go to enter

    • Christopher Tracey

      The last word should give you a link to the entrance page.

      • Theano Xir

        thanks!

  • Megan Watson

    So I’ve got 8 words and a password, I’m confused. I’ve gone back and forth all morning and can’t find any eggs I’ve missed, I’m not sure how I got out of order by following the clues. Can someone help?

    • Christopher Tracey

      Same. did you find that Eggs 8 appears to be the same on 2 different pages too?

      • I included the two same words/eggs on those two different pages as results could have pulled up either/or. Wanted to be safe. 🙂

    • Were you able to find the rest?

  • Helene

    Is the second-last egg supposed to be on two pages?

    • Yes, search results could have pulled up either or both pages and technically both are correct. I put them on both to be safe.

  • Kassandra Millard

    I’ve found the 1st and last word, but seem to have troubles finding those in between. Am I skipping something?

    • The clue on the Angela art page should send you to the 2nd, and from there on each clue will send you to the next.

      • disqus_OykABphKKl

        I found the word indicated from this page, and the clue there sent me to the final word/password. So I have the first and the last.

  • Bahar Omar

    Hello there !! I have found 11 words plus the password. The 11th word is the clue to the password page, so I’m not sure if this means that the 11th word doesn’t count. Please help ? (:

  • Jelena Djuric

    I have a question, does this egg hunt game work on iPads?
    No eggs and no clues until now… 🙁

    • Marley

      I’m finding them on an iPad mini… Well all but two..

    • They’re available on every part of the website. Our mobile theme might be a bit tricky to navigate with.

  • Deirdre

    I’ve managed to find 10 [1-9, &11] of the words. I can’t figure out the tenth clue to get word 10…

    • John McClymond

      yes

  • Braden Dobson

    I have found eleven different words, but none of them have a link. please help

  • Thalen Marbury

    cant figure out buzz lightyear comment

  • Elizabeth Matte

    I have some issues with Rafflecopter, I can’t add more words… I accidently pressed enter after I wrote my first word and I can’t add the others… :S Can somebody help me?

    • I’ll be sure to count your entry, don’t worry!

  • Cormac O’Donovan

    Right. I’ve gone through the hunt several times and I’m not seeing a possible solution to the “word here” egg clue. Here’s to the people who figured it out. Well done.

    • Ilsa

      Word here? What is it? I’m stuck.

  • firnina

    The clue for the “Word here” egg is a repeat of an earlier clue.

  • Arielle

    I have eleven words… What’s after the word here clue? I keep going in circles…

  • I got the first egg, and then the last one. I have no idea where to get the ones in the middle. I feel like I missed something.

  • Rachel Wong

    one of them says “word here” but whats the word?

  • Sorry for the confusion all! The final egg page now includes the intended link to the giveaway page.

    • Rachel Wong

      dont see the link…..

      • John McClymond

        you must look for it and you need all words from all of 11 eggs.

  • John McClymond

    ok, where is passworded giveaway page?!?

  • Katie

    I managed to find 11 words and the password….

    Also, where’s the link to the giveaway page?

  • John Faubion

    Same problem on my end, something tells me we will get an update in the next day or so.

  • Andria

    I have all 10 words and the password, but there isn’t any clues/instructions to get to the giveaway page?

  • Katherine Fox

    I think there is an issue on the seventh egg

    • John McClymond

      you need look somewhere else for that word.

      • Ilsa

        What do you mean? I’m caught on Egg 7, just like this. I’ve found the final two, but this one is messed up…

        • Still having issues?

          • Ilsa

            No, I found all ten! Thanks!

    • Addressed this today. Sorry for the hassle!
