April Fools…?

Happy 1st of April!

For those of you in Australia and NZ, we wish you a happy 1st of April! For the rest of the world, happy last day of March!

We have some exciting stuff planned for this “holiday” and wanted to give you a heads up to what you can expect.

There will be a one day set. This set will contain 3 items which will be dropped at 3 different times throughout the day. The timing for this set will be based on UTC time, so any time between 00:01 and 23:59 UTC is fair game. We hope you enjoy the silliness of this strange day, and enjoy the festivities.

Since the 1st of April is known for pranks, we hope that you’re the type of person who laughs at getting hit with a pie… not that we’d ever do something like that. 😉

Until tomorrow…

The Beginning…

It Is Time!

The time has finally come! Your clan’s first assignment is about to begin. As we begin this tale, I wanted to give a post reassuring you all that this is planned to be a fun set, with no points for the number range of items. We have some very exciting twists and turns planned for you, in both storyline and item releases. If you don’t want to participate in the fun clan activities, you are welcome to collect the items like they normally come out, but it will be much more fun to participate with your clan members.

Now that that’s been said, lets get this story started. Here are the guidelines for the first item.

  • Due before 5pm UTC tomorrow, the 29th.
  • If your normal representative is unable to participate before the above time, please have someone else submit the final idea.
  • Submissions will be made through either email or the submission form.
  • If no clan is close to the beginning of the story, then that point will be lost and it will result in a default storyline description. If a team doesn’t get a submission in by the time stamp, then they forfeit the chance at getting that point.

Any questions? Please send an email to support.

Tell Us A Tale

Tell us a Tale

Happy Friday to you! I hope that everyone is excited about the new set, Tell us a Tale. We want you to have as much time to get your clans together as possible, so no need to start freaking out.

Before this weekend begins, I wanted to give you a quick overview of the set expectations, and how this competition will be run:

Collaborative Storytelling

As was mentioned previously, this is a storytelling adventure for you and your clan. You can take it as seriously or lighthearted as you’d like, but it’s usually more fun to play nicely together.


For this set, you will appoint at least one person to be a representative. The representative’s job is to pass along the next portion of the story to me. If you want to do multiple representatives to help with time zone differences, that is completely understandable. However, if two representatives from the same clan give me a story, the first one submitted will be accepted. No exceptions. The whole clan puts together the story, but the representative delivers the message to me.

Due date for your Representative(s) is Sunday, March 20th (UTC).

Clan Points

Storytelling: Points will be awarded for creativity and accuracy. The storyboard for this set has already been created, with the artwork already done (very well done, if I may say so). The clan with the closest story to what actually happened, gets the points. If no one gets it right, it will fall back to the default story.

Other Points: There may be some fun ways to earn points, which will be explained at a later date, but there will be NO points given for items based on number: SD, DD, TD, QD, 5D, etc. No need to lose friendships over a fun set. Hoard this set like you normally would, but there’s no need to go overboard.

Set Timing

We are currently waiting on some things to fall into place before we begin this set, so you still have some time to theorize. When we begin to release items, and the storytelling begins, you will have to think two steps ahead, as the next card released may be part of a mix. You will have time to formulate the next part of the story and submit it, and if there are any important time restraints, I will let you know prior.If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Godspeed and good luck!

Magical Creatures

The Coming Clans

Hello everyone!

I’m sure your houses are swarming with crazy ideas as to what this new set is going to look like. To get the forums swarming a little more, we want you to discuss something: New (temporary) Clan names.

In the days of old, your family clan was how you were seen to others. It was the root of who you were and what you did. The Enchanted Hat has made a dangerous journey back in time to bring back the original heritage on which your houses were founded. Surprisingly, none of our houses were based on the creatures we thought they were.

I am now pleased to present the new House Clans:

  • Yetis of Snugglepuff
  • Phoenixes of Jabbaclaw
  • Unicorns of Slithering
  • Dragons of Colbourndor

Since this set will be a little different from the last big competition, my suggestion is to appoint a representative. Make sure this player is going to be active, as they will come into play later on in this competition. BeeKeepers are great default choices. If your clan needs assistance choosing the worthy one, the Enchanted Hat will be happy to help.

The Map

To give you a little teaser, I have designed a map for this new land of adventure. What is this map going to be used for, you may ask? That information will be disclosed at a later date. For the time being, if you want to see what it looks like, or use it as your phone’s wallpaper, you can find it in our WallaPapers DropBox.

Godspeed and good luck!

Events Category!

The time has come, MrV said, to speak of many things:
Of store drops, and mixes, and foraging,
Of Set cards and Uniques.
And why the Pool is boiling hot
And whether ‘Squatch has wings.

Hey guys! Thanks for humoring me over the weekend! A lot happened that we want to touch on:

Events Category!

That’s right! We are adding a fun new category to the game: Events!

This new category will host a few different types of subcategories, including WallaBee hosted events and Player/Community supported events. What color is this adding, you may ask? Brown!

For those players that saw the MM5 unique rear its head on Saturday, you may have a few questions. Good news! We have some answers.

Question: Was the unique a WallaBee or Player Unique?

Answer: Player. The artwork was commissioned by a group of our players who were hosting the MM5 event. It was given out through a beta test of the new Event category locations. Even if that wasn’t the case, it acts no differently than a number of uniques that are already in existence.

Question: I saw users able to forage multiple of the unique… what gives?

Answer: You are correct. Multiple were able to be foraged, which is why the location was taken away very quickly. It was not the original plan. There was only supposed be one per player. The event was a great opportunity to test the mechanics, as we now know there are a few things that need to be worked out before it becomes a normal part of the game.

Question: What conditions need to be met for an official WB/Player event?


  • WallaBee Hosted: At least one WBHQ staff member will be at the location and set up the meet-up.or
  • Player Hosted: A staff member does not have to be present, but there must be at least 5 players in attendance. Other terms and conditions will be added when these go live.

Question: What do I receive at a WB/Player event?

Answer: This answer may change as the project grows and adapts, but really anything is possible. In the case of our beta test with MM5, there was a unique that was given out at the event, through the event location. We aren’t sure if there will be a new unique for each meet-up, but there may be something else to keep you busy. Talk has been made about making a new category of uniques for events, so there is less confusion as to whether the item is Player or WallaBee.Have a question that wasn’t answered here? Please email support.

New Set?

If you had the opportunity to catch the periscope broadcast on Saturday, you got a head start on knowing that there is a 20 card set coming soon.

Get ready for a Collaborative Storytelling adventure! Your houses will be heavily involved for this set. And no, before you ask, it’s not Specky 2.

Need to access the house forums for the first time? Mix the Transfiguration Professor with the Enchanted Hat.

When will this set come out? How will the storytelling occur? Is the legend of RedCarRobbie true? Only time can tell… but this set will be one for the history books.
