    MCME Easter Egg Hunt 2017
    So you thought last year's hunt was tough?
    I am pleased to present you yet another instance of the almost already classy Easter Egg Hunt here on MCME! This event is about finding a couple of eggs, placed somewhere on the MCME server. As a special new addition I have a prize this year for the player who manages to find all the eggs the fastest, if anyone manages to do so at all. Just as the event itself, the prize is rather puzzling...

    (I checked the postage prizes, should be able to deliver in pretty much any corner of the Earth)

    The event starts on Easter Sunday, 2pm BST. The eggs will be pasted in shortly before the event. The eggs will be present for two weeks, that means until Sunday, April 30th. That also marks the deadline for submissions.

    Here's some facts, tips and tricks for your hunt, changes to last year are marked in bold:

    • The eggs are placed within Minecraft, on a server that is part of the MCME Network and on a location which is accessible to any Adventurer+ throughout the time of the event.
    • To unravel the hints you will require to use certain services from within the MCME Network as well as outside it, i.e. Google searches.
    • The eggs are coming in any color, and are 8 blocks tall and 5 wide.
    • The hint for the next egg is found on signs on the previous egg.
    • Each egg also contains a sign with the name of a character devised by J.R.R. Tolkien, but with the letters scrambled up.
    • To win you need to message me the unscrambled names from the eggs in the right order through the Forums or Discord.
    • There are 20 correct eggs.
    • There are an additional 17 wrong eggs, which look just like correct eggs, just with other scrambled names on it. For each hint theres only one correct egg and 0 - 2 wrong eggs. I am trying to formulate the hints such that it's undebatable onto which egg the hint fits best.
    • Out-of-the-box thinking is vital.
    • Teaming up is encouraged, but there's only one, hardly dividable, prize.
    • I will be a bit more reluctant with giving out hints than last year, in order to keep things fair. I retain the right to disqualify players I help specifically, or even cancel the prize altogether if I have the impression certain players have an unfair advantage.
    • In order to obtain your prize you will need to send me your address through a pm, the data will be treated confidentially.
    And here's your first hint:

    Can we please have a hint for egg 3? Like a public one that it is still equally fair. A lot of ppl are struggling with that one or give up because they can't find it.

    All eggs are now pasted, and I double-checked hopefully all scrambled names!

    Submit the names in correct order to me via Discord or the Forums. If you a name for each of the twenty eggs i will tell you whether you have any wrong names from wrong eggs or not.

    Alright, as @thomasd_17 seems to be trying to dissect the right from the wrong eggs by trying to trick me, I add the additional rule that I will only answer 5 on submissions with the info about how many eggs are still wrong. After that the last submission will count and I will not give anymore hints on it.

    The hunt has been won by @thomasd18! The puzzle goes to him then, congratulations! The eggs will still remain on the map until next weekend. In the next few days I will post the solutions and how to unscramble the hints the right way.

    If it's not too much work, could you post 2nd hints as well as full solutions for each of the eggs? If we want to still try and find everything ourselves but need a little more guidance or a nudge in the right direction. Thanks.
