I'm speculating that Please, Sir, We Want Some More Issues's chances of appearing are increased if the player has either a) recently found an easter egg or b) recently set fields to make them qualify for easter egg/s

This has proven true for this account, a puppet, and a friend of mine's account.

Is it possible to check which easter eggs I've already gotten? No problem if it's too much trouble.

So pizza delivery IS involved in some way, and those percentages are pretty far off from top of the world, there's definitely a magic number somewhere, the question is by how much, and if those other two categories are also needed. Fortunately it looks like the number(s) is low if there is one.

Damn, guess I had both moo and cow in my fields all these months just out of false hope :(

I got Issue 430 and I don't know why, does someone know the requirements for it?

According to this dispatch (also with spoilers), nations receiving that issue have answered at least 250~300 issues and also have the "no throttle" option for issues in settings.

According to this dispatch, issue #80 is received by having "Moo" as your motto or cow as national animal. After applying both changes to my nation and waiting roughly two weeks, I've received the issue in question, so I can confirm that one or both conditions trigger the issue. Furthermore, is not related to pizza at all, my pizza industry was lame prior to obtaining the Easter Egg.

I just looked at the puppet I got #80 on, and it has cow as its nation animal.

It's a good time to get #375 if you haven't yet.

I got the Lucky Charms #375 a few days ago

I'm up to 11. I'm assuming I still need #80 The Aliens and #256 Suburbs. But not positive as I wasn't tracking them in the early going. It's possible I need Zombie #223 instead of one of those two. I have Zombie in there just in case.

For #80 I've had Cow as my animal since June 2019, but my Pizza stat is abysmal, but cheese is in top .3%. I just added moo too :lol:
For #256 my Crime is in the top .2% and been under 1% for awhile. I just added Galaxy to see if that helps.

I'm glad you know which ones you need. That's my problem right now - I honestly can't remember which ones I've gotten or not. I *thought* I got the Lucky Charms one, but trying that one again now just in case. I wish I had been properly tracking these since the beginning!!

I also have 11. ;) Definitely missing #223 Zombie - I thought you had to CTE and resurrect for that one? (Which I have - still never gotten it!!) Didn't know putting zombie in a field would also trigger that. Trying it now, thanks :D

Literally just came here to ask that. Only just discovered easter eggs, only to find I've already gotten four somehow. I'd like to know which those were, so I don't sit around trying to get them forever, since you can only get them once.

I just got the Lucky Charms #375, it's clear that putting 'golden' or 'gold' in your currency triggers the easter egg issue.

Hmmm...well, I put zombie in my animal field to try and grab issue 223...but somehow I never realised I was missing a different one. Just got the Halloween issue (622)!! Not complaining, but definitely a bit confused to get this issue in March. And shocked that I didn't realise I was missing this one. No complaints though. :) Just need one more easter egg for my lucky 13...c'mon 223!!!

I've been trying to get as many easter eggs as possible so I've put the triggers for multiple easter eggs in my custom fields all at once. In the past week I've gotten 3 easter eggs. It's ironic, because I know you can get the st. patrick's day one this time of year, but I *didn't* get that one. I wonder if the game gives more easter eggs in general around this time, or if that's just random. It could be random--I've been making extra sure to keep my issues inbox empty around st. patrick's day.

Double Issue for Easter Egg Holiday Masquerade #622

Postby Mediobogdum II » Tue Mar 24, 2020 5:52 am

For the second time this year I have been awarded, for a second time, the Easter Egg for this daily issue on one of my nations. This time it is for this nation Mediobogdum II but I have also received it on another puppet earlier this year. I keep a record of Easter Eggs awards so I know this is a duplicate and especially as it came at the 'wrong' time i.e. not Halloween, unless the award date has been extended to St Patrick's Day as well, but that one goes to Easter Egg #375 Lucky Charms.

I have long suspected that #622 has had a duplicating problem since my main Mediobogdum has all 13 Easter Eggs awarded but I can only account for 12 of them and suspect #622 to have been duplicated there also.

This puppet account has just received Issue 80 (Aliens), without having cow as my national animal. I thought for a moment that I didn't have "moo" in my bio either, but I realised that the "moo" in the word "smooth" must have triggered it. This means "moo" doesn't have to be a stand-alone word, and this has possibly lead to previous speculation about it not being needed at all (what I'm basically saying is people had "moo" in their bios without realising it).

I’ve received it on a few nations and never done that. I’m not sure what cows would have to do with that issue anyway. I’m fairly certain it’s more about pizza delivery industry than anything else.

Well, there's the stereotype about aliens abducting cattle, although it's not actually mentioned with regards to these aliens.

There's also the fact that cheese is a common ingredient in pizza.

Do you guys think NationStates will ever make a May 4th issue that is Star Wars related? That would be awsome if they did, or it could already be out there.
If you can't tell, my main nation is Dangine
Because I'm trying to get an Easter egg that requires my main to cease to exist, I will be talking on forums on this Nation.

The second option mentions cattle. 'Moo' certainly seems to be related, otherwise getting the issue on this account seems pretty coincidental.

Wait, come to think of it, has anyone tried pizza related topics in their fields? Maybe have cheese or pepperoni as their animal, that would work somehow? It's weird that "moo" is probably counted but Cow isn't.

I'm pretty sure having cow as your national animal has been seen to work too.

It occurs to me that one of my nations that received the issue has “Pepperoni” as its capital... although it also is like 450th in the world for pizza delivery...

I just got "Easter Egg: Breaching the Fourth Wall of @@NAME@@", and I had NationStates in my motto. Contrary to the information in the first post, the issue was marked as an Easter Egg in the title. Population: 45 million.
When I received the issue, it was Easter in parts of the world. It's my first Easter egg — not sure if that's relevant.
