    hi guys :) have a few of these old tickets, and I'm wondering about some of the items


    first, is the 'snowballs' really the 'pile of snow' ?
    second, isn't there something about the wris****ch disappearing? like, don't lock it down or something?
    third, 'snowglobe (other)' would be dungeon or something else? it's not the singing ball, is it?
    last...... what statue?

    thanks for any help you can give me!

    ~edit~ incredible filter on this place.......

    Yes, that filter amuses me, too!

    The "snowballs" really are the pile of snow. I don't know if it would be glacial (blue) or regular (white) at this time. However, I'm pretty sure that the snow globes are the most recent ones now, not the old ones. So I don't think there's a chance of getting, say, Exodus' Lair. But I'm not sure; can someone confirm?

    I also think that you get A Holiday Timepiece instead of A Wrist Watch (take that, filter!), but again I'm not sure.

    The issue with wrist watches disappearing was if they were locked down at one point--which is not supposed to be possible, because they're blessed--they would decay even though they were locked down. I don't think they can be locked down any more through normal means, and I don't think they decay anymore if you do manage to lock them down. But they will decay if dropped and not locked down. All of this applices to the Wrist Watch, not the Holiday Timepiece.

    If you do redeem it, please let us know what you chose and what you get so that we can get some recent proof of how these old tickets work when redeemed in more modern times. Thanks!

    Look under the sticky Holiday gifts and you will see 2001/2 the pictures of the prizes thier. I just remember on the globes that thier were two options to choose from. I remember it being just one option when they originally came out. Your best options to choose would be the globes or the xmas statues for a very small chance of getting a better name.
    Unless you want a watch, I'm not sure what they sell for these days, perhaps another player could answer that for you.

    Personally I would redeem them for watches, they sell for 2m+.
