Since the introduction of the fun new game to the site, I've found alot of people confused about it, me being one of them! So I thought it would be apporpriate to make a post dedicated to the game, how to find Swedish Fish, and ect. Hope you enjoy playing!
1. How Do I Play?
Go into your User CP, located in the top left hand of any page on this site. There, on the left side of your screen, will be links to where you can change your profile. Click "Options". Scroll to the very bottom. You will see the "Play Swedish Fish" option. Click "Yes" and "Save Changes" at the bottom and you're ready to go!
2. Where Do I Find Swedish Fish?
This site is divided into serveral main forums, all with sub-forums. Where you will find the Swedish Fish is in the subforums of the main forums "Diversions" and "The TakeThisLife.com Community". To find fish fast, try clicking one of the main forums, and then click on each sub-forum, and see if you notice anything different at the top above the list of threads. You'll know when you've found one when it pops up on the screen, click "Take It" quickly! Other members are playing as well and each time the Swedish Fish is taken, another one is placed in an entirely new sub-forum of the two main forums mentioned above.
3. Help! I've searched each sub-forum and the Swedish Fish still isn't popping up!
That's probably because another member already took it, which means the Swedish Fish has been placed again in a new sub-forum. Good luck looking, catch him quickly!
4. Hmm... I clicked on a thread and at the top, somebody seems to have left a bag of Swedish Fish!
This sometimes happens, and watch out, because it will happen to you as well! Each time you log off, there is a chance another member can find your Swedish Fish in any given thread on the board. If you've come across a bag of Fish, you can either choose to try to take one, or be humble and decline. When you try to take one, you either have a 33% or 50% chance of pulling it off, so don't worry if you aren't able to get it, some things are for the best! Psst, and don't worry about stealing them, because I don't
5. One or more of my Swedish Fish have came up missing when I came back to the site!
Somebody found your bag and took one! When going in threads, you can do this also. A message will pop up a few seconds after you have logged back in noting who took your fish and how many. Don't feel bad if you've been gotten though, because it happens to all of us, and it's just a game so have fun and get out there and steal some back
So that's about it! Good luck fishing, don't feel bad if you're fish turn up missing, and above all, have fun! If you have any questions feel free to ask and I or another member of the board will answer.
