Here’s the daily post letting you know where you should be by the end of the day if you want to collect all the prizes through snake-whacking alone. These posts use US East Coast time where, at the time of posting, it’s just after 8am.

For most people, the event actually began on April 11. From then, it’s 29 days until the currently scheduled event conclusion, while could be any time on May 9 in the US. While there’s always a possibility it may be extended due to all the glitches in the first week of the event, it’s not something we can count on at this stage.

To get the first level of prizes, you need 12,500 snakes before the event ends – and to get all the Whack Boxes as well you need 22,500 of them. That means you need to put snakes into your inventory at an average rate around 431 snakes a day every day throughout the event. To get all the Whack Boxes as well, you need to gather around 775 snakes every day. April 19 is Day 9 so this is roughly what you’ll need:

To get all the 10 prizes: you’ll need to have whacked 3,879 snakes by the end of the day in the US.
To get all the prizes and all 10 Whack Boxes: you’ll need to have whacked 6,975 snakes by the end of the day in the US.

Once you win the Expert Whacking License and the Snake Rocks, these numbers get a little easier to hit. And with the weekend coming up, a couple of rounds of visiting friends could easily net you several hundred more snakes.

These posts will be appearing every day at roughly this time, when it’s morning in America. And please feel free to correct my calculations.
