Okay, so the announcement of Winter festivities has been made and, as is usually the case, once announced (and no "Coming Soon®©℗™") then one would assume things are active right now. So this is what I presume about the Winter 2019 Swaginator Swag Hunt. You can grab the new Swaginator HUD right now and the first clue... Okay, I'm not even sure if it's a clue. It won't be any secret, so I'll just say that it starts you off at Campwich Forest (Trains Station, to be specific.) Now, I know this area very, very well because I actually spend a lot of time here at the lodge and surrounds. So I walked, flew, even jammed all over the area and absolutely cannot find any "Swaginator Podium" - that little platform you stand on to get your found swag. So, I am seriously wondering if the actual hunt hasn't;t started yet (and we just have the HUD to get ready for it) or if they're doing it differently this year? Whether it's a clue or not, the starting point is all you get. It doesn't read like a clue and clicking-clicky, nothing else happens. Soooo, has anyone else given it a go yet and found anything? I wouldn't be surprised if I'm more daft than I realize. LOL
