What’s the Story, Snatching Glory…

As kids, we were all told not to snatch. That it was rude. That it was mean. But it was also a lot of fun, right? That sweet, sweet, satisfaction as you took what you really wanted – and left the other person a little bit upset.

It’s why we built this game – and why we made Snatching an integral part of the game. Sure, collecting parcels is fine – but nothing compares to the rush of stealing a parcel from someone and then keeping it to reveal the spoils.

And this week, we saw Snatching move to another level. We know you all go a bit crazy for the chance to win games consoles – and this week we put each variety in game to win. When the prizes go in, we don’t know where they end up – we just know they are out there. And on Tuesday when we put an assorted array of games consoles out there to be won, some people got pretty excited…

Parcels can move a long way – the six hour time means they can find a parcel in Nuneaton, drive a couple hours to Slough where it can snatched by someone passing through and whisked off to Newport where the parcel finds a home. And this is what happened with the Nintendo Switch!

It moved around the country, passing through three players hands before it was Snatched by a player with precisely two minutes to and then, when that player hit reveal…A NINTENDO SWITCH.

They must be made of four leaf clovers because that is some sweet, sweet, luck.

If you collect a parcel, or Snatch a parcel, you’ll never know what’s in there – unless it’s Gold of course. But snatching a parcel will always guarantee a shorter wait time to reveal your prize – and two minutes to find out you’ve won a Nintendo Switch must be a pretty satisfying feeling. Just like this gif:

So we aren’t saying that Snatching gets you better prizes – all we are saying is that Snatching your way to a win is clearly more satisfying that collecting your way to a win. So…what are you waiting for? Be more raccoon.

Worried about your Daily Bonus? Follow us, dear Snatcher…

Snatchers,

The Daily Bonus was meant to be a nice way of showing our most loyal players a bit of love just for playing the game – but sadly, it turned into a daily issue that frustrated you as much as it frustrated us. Some people got the bonus, others didn’t. Some people’s worked for weeks at a time, others gave up after a couple of days.

We’ve spent a long time investigating the issue and working on a fix – luckily for you guys, our tech team hate going outside. The tech team has been chained to their desks, only being allowed to leave for toilet breaks, working hard on a fix and then testing when it was ready.

And the eureka moment came this week and, drum roll please…

THE FIX IS HERE

What this means for you…

In the next update for both Apple and Android, landing later this week, the Daily Bonus fix will be included. All you have to do is head to your app store and install the update.

As long as you have logged in over the past few days or plan to log this evening or on Wednesday, your streak will restore itself. That means if you have been playing for 100 days nonstop or five days, your streak will retain.

For those new players? Nows your chance to get a head start. Log in everyday to start racking up your streak and you will see the benefits…

Anything else?

Yes, as a matter of fact, there is. We are aware of other issues in games and our tech team isn’t being let away from their desks just yet. We just need to let you know that we are working as hard as we can to fix the things you are sending us and we are noticing.

This is always going to be a work in progress. Fixes can take some time to resolve as we’re still a growing team and the issues can be very complex.

But all this time isn’t going to be wasted – the game is only going to get better from here. We love how enthusiastic you guys are about the game and our summer plans are going to blow you away…

So all we ask is you keep Snatching; and we’ll keep rewarding you…

Happy Snatching!

Joe and Team Snatch
