Big Buck Safari - Easter Egg (Part IV)

1) Choose the Wildebeest Adventure.

2) On the first trek, go to the 5th site (that's the one in the lower right).

3) When the scene starts, shoot the smaller of the rocks on the left.

4) Shout 'Woot!... Woot!".

OMG! Don't shoot Rudolph!!

Here's a little nugget of Christmas Cheer for all you big buck players out there. In the latest version of Big Buck Hunter Pro (version 1.00.06 but who's counting?), there's a new Christmas easter egg.

If you play any sort of online game between Dec 24th and Dec 31st, all the Caribou will have red noses.

See, Caribou and Reindeer are actually the same species (Rangifer tarandus). But you can't really call it 'Reindeer' in the Adventure Select screen. All the kids would cry.

Anyhoo, now while you're at your favorite Big Buck location, toasting your friends with a steamy mug of Christmas glog, you can enjoy some Big Buck Hunter with new rosy Christmas cheer.

What's that you say? Shooting Rudolph isn't very Christmas-y? ...Bah Humbug? NO, see, you're thinking of this all wrong. That's not Rudolph you're shooting. See, all the other mean reindeer are mocking Rudolph.

Remember how they wouldn't let him 'play in any reindeer games'? Well now you can avenge Rudolph. Or wait..., I know, pretend they're zombies, you know, like in that movie 28 days...they're coming to kill Santa & the elves, and you have to save Christmas.

Never mind, just play it.

If the online game you are playing doesn't have it yet, try again later. The new software might not have downloaded to that machine yet.

Safari Tournaments go down under!

Big Buck Safari Tournaments and Trophy Club play first available in the US have now become available in Australia.

For those of you might have been off on a walkabout or otherwise unfamiliar, 'Trophy Club' play means your scores and stats are tracked and downloaded each time you play.
Every time you play a Trophy Club game, you can compare your score to your Personal Best, the National Best, and the National Average. Also, you can form 'Hunting Parties' with your mates. Then, if you've had an epic arvo of shooting trophies, you can compare your scores against your mates scores at every site.

Also, you can compete in National Tournaments for cash and prizes.

Unfortunately, not every Big Buck Safari is automatically online. Each cabinet has to be converted to be an online cabinet. However, more online cabinets are popping up every day.
