  • We found out that it should be possible to get Chocolatine for free, if you always try to save up tokens.

  • Always move to free spaces and avoid the to obstacles where possible

  • Prefer path with a lot of tokens

  • Use the switch card on checkpoint lanes to gather all gifts

  • Make sure you get all the tokens you can from rides and competition entries.

  • Think carefully about your next move

  • Wait until the end of the event and collect fragments throughout the event, it makes it so much cheaper.

  • If you want the Divine I would wait until you collected all the Divine fragments first before opening the fleece.

  • Take your time, start each day by collecting tokens (5 rides, enter 5 competitions…) this will help you get nice gifts without spending passes.

  • Sometimes it’s better to lose 1 move on a 3 moves card (cost: 1 token) instead of using two 1 move cards for 1 token each.

  • Some obstacles can be avoided by more than one option. It is better to choose the option that is specific to the obstacle so that you have more flexibility

  • Always log in and collect the tokens if you want to get close to the divine/get good BMI's

  • If you are going for chocolate croissant then it’s worth getting all the fragments from the hike, especially with the x2 multiplier from the community objective, you may not have to spend on so many fleeces.

  • Take all fragments, if you like to have the special horse

  • Try to keep going in a straight path. This way, you don’t use up as many tokens! The trick is to pick the path that has the least number of obstacles!

  • If you are not targeting the Divine horse, do not hesitate to switch lanes to get gifts, going farther does not necessary mean getting better gifts.

  • It is possible to get all 3 gifts at the checkpoint by using the sideways movement but you must time your steps so you land on that checkpoint step where all the prizes are given. So do not select a step option that will take you past the checkpoint.

  • If you are interested in bm item rather than the divine, use the object that allow you to change paths when there are multiple bm items on a row.

  • If possible, move to the lane with least obstacles

  • Don’t be tempted to switch lanes to grab a token that is in it, depending on the obstacles in that lane it may not be worth it.

  • Do not forget to gather free tokens every day!

  • You get 15 tokens every day and there are some good prizes on the hike. Enjoy



Have fun hiking through France,

That happened a couple of times when I double clicked. I think it is a timing thing.

No they do not. You continue where you left off.

You need to go slower, it is a latent thing and you are clicking faster than the servers can handle.

There are approx 750 fragments available to be reached. That leaves 250 to get via the GF and with 18 being the average fragment and with the multiplier you should not have to open that many.

Woah, I've never actually got the Divine from an event before! Very exciting. I did have to buy a pack of tokens at the end but that was my fault for being pretty foolish with my choices earlier default smiley (b)

Super nice event, I was able to get the Devine from it first time ever. Did purchase one pack but with the 30 passes everyday it was not that big of a deal. Thank you howrse.
