This post is going up when it’s the morning of Thursday, 25 April in the Americas and as I haven’t been over them for a couple of days, here are the rules:

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 25 is Day 15, so this is roughly what you’ll need by the time North, Central and South Americans are all thinking about heading off to bed:

To get all the 10 prizes: you’ll need to have put 6,465 snakes in your inventory.
To get all the prizes and all 10 Whack Boxes: you’ll need to have put 11,625 snakes in your inventory.

This is all based on the following: For most people, the event actually began on April 11. From then, it’s 29 days until the currently scheduled event conclusion. 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. But if you’re a little behind these numbers and want to give yourself your own daily average, just work out the number of snakes you need to get to the prize level you’re aiming for and divide it by the number of days until May 9.

And for those trying to figure out what time their Whacking Day ends, look at the time function on your phone. Most phones and other devices capab1e of playing Tapped Out also have a time zone feature, so you should be able to see what time it is in your location when it’s midnight in, say, New York. While I’m using midnight as the finish time, though, the event could finish at any time on May 9.
