What Staff is This?Posted by HEX Staff on December 10, 2018 - 12:00 am
"Ho ho ho! Feed me cookies!" Wait, that's not quite the right quote, is it? It's certainly accurate, though, as Santa will be looking for your milk and cookies again this year! Milk and cookies will be falling as REs sitewide, and if you catch one you can choose to give them to Santa so he can give his expert opinion on the quality of your cookies. He'll reward you with a few galleons if he's impressed!
Need something to do while you're searching for cookies? The HEX staff is wondering just how well you know your gmods and juniors and staff (oh my!). To find out, we've changed up the traditional staff tasks from years' past and are inviting all of you to play a daily game of Guess Who! A new set of clues will be posted each day in the HEXmas forum, and you'll need to guess who is who in order to earn a lottery ticket. Good luck!

HEXmas 2018Posted by HEX Staff on December 3, 2018 - 4:56 pm
'Tis the season to be jolly! And HEX is starting to celebrate the season. Santa has come to Daily Money again, so you'll have to see if you get lucky and catch some higher offers than usual. Careful, though. Santa has a bit of a sense of humor and might offer you less than usual too! Need some extra spending money to help with all that HEXmas shopping? Then you'll be pleased to know that we've got poinsettias waiting for you! Tending these lovely holiday plants can earn you some equally lovely profit. We've also got the Christmas Lottery back again, so be sure to be active around the site to earn tickets.
Be sure to keep watching the homepage to see what other things the holidays will have in store and join us in the HEXmas forum to chat and have fun with your fellow HEXians. Also be sure to check out the guide thread and to keep the watch thread on watch.
