3 gold snails

Post  Anne on Mon Feb 09, 2009 3:41 am

Have you noticed that sometimes when you find a garden snail and turn it into gold you get 3 gold instead of the usual 2? I've tried to look for a note telling that the amount of gold you get from them varies a bit more now but I haven't found anything so far cat

Yes Anne, I definitely get 3 gold from time to time, so I'm sure it's normal. But OMG, you're not going to believe this - about a week ago a snail gave me 10 gold! I thought it must be a missprint, but sure enough my gold went up by 10. I was dumbfounded. I thanked the fairy who's garden provided it, but I didn't know if it was worth mentioning anywhere else - I assumed it would never happen again. And so far it hasn't (well, not to me), but I'm watching out. Wink

Wow, I never thought those little things could be worth ten gold! Better keep my eyes open in case they show up.

Somehow I always feel a little bad when I'm turning them into gold though... The snails look always so happy and friendly! Perhaps if Mike would make them look more vicious I didn't have any problems... Smile

I've heard that if you have snails in your real life garden you've got two options in getting rid of them: either boil them or halve them with scissors. My aunt used to have huge snails in her garden, about 10-15 cm long and really fat - getting rid of them must have been an ugly scene...

Now my head is full of some lovely images - thanks! While we're at it, I have always been told the way to kill snails is to pour salt over them - it dessicates their slimy bodies. I have actually seen some mean person do it and it made my stomach churn. affraid I prefer giving them the quick crunch of the boot myself. It would be much nicer all round if they would all just turn into gold like decent snails should.

But then people would complain. Rolling Eyes

I would let them live probably, no salt, no scissors Crying or Very sad Say Liz - do they really hurt the garden so badly??
Although I have no problem to spread a little magic on a virtual snail - and I've always set them free in alchemy Wink

Haha - I've always been quite ruthless with any virtual animal willing to give me gold or diamonds, but I never thought of it as being ruthless. I thought of it more as being entrepreneurial. And it never says anything bad happens to the animals. I mean Mike doesn't say "crush this poor defensless snail and wipe him from the surface of fariyland", he says "Turn the snail into gold" - no harm in that. I'm sure what really happens, but we just don't see it, is that the snail gets a nice gold brocade hat and a gold painted snail shell and in return gives us some coins and then he goes off to a party. drunken

Snails are terrible in the real garden. They eat anything tender and juicy, so annuals like pansies and petunias, longer lived things like gerberas - you can't grow these things without sprinkling with snail bait. So I don't tend to grow them any more - better to not fight nature if you can avoid it. Very Happy

PS - good to see you back! cat

It's just a matter of luck, perhaps there's a 3 gold snail waiting for you in the next garden you water. Smile

Now that I have all 10 Elixirs, every snail I find is a 5-gold one. Smile
But ... I just found a 10-gold one! My very first, I think. I was astonished -- and very grateful!

wow! I didn't even realize that having the 10 Elixirs would have anything to do with finding 5-gold-snails! I wondered if they upvalued *LOL!*

Has anyone else noticed that your snails seem to make more gold if it's a garden you frequent more often?

I regularly visit 2 or 3 gardens, and I seem to get much wealthier snails there than anywhere else.
