The Festival of Eggs is Dragon Cave's answer to Easter and made its first appearance in 2010.

Back then TJ announced the event with the following words on the forums:

While I don't have a pretty picture for you this time, I'd like to announce a two-day event that is unlike any other: The DC Festival of Eggs.

What is this festival of eggs? Well, it's very similar to an easter egg hunt. For the next two days, special eggs designed just for the event will pop up in random spots on the site. Click on them and they'll go in your "basket." Everyone can see your basket, and the more you collect, the more full your basket is.

So get searching!


Every five to fifteen minutes, a special egg would appear on the next page. When clicked, a little easter basket would appear at the top of your scroll, and you could click on it to see the eggs you had collected. The color of the baskets differs between scrolls, and the amount of eggs within increases at certain milestones.

All information on how to catch the eggs was summarized in form of a small FAQ by SockPuppet Strangler on the forum in 2011, read more here.

Easter BasketsEdit

The badges replaced the big baskets after the "Festival of Eggs - 2010" ended. With the following "Festival of Eggs" events, the small badges were obtainable again for those who missed out on the previous events in the years before.

    • So uh, do you just collect them for fun? Do they hatch, or, just sit there and be pretty?
    • Hi! Really they're just to collect and look pretty on your profile, no other reward is given for collecting them all.
