Christmas Mazes are here!

Like finding your way through winding and blocked pathways?

Come join us in our Christmas Maze event with a few adjustments from previous editions!

How to play


Each of you will need to find your way to the exit from a total of five(5) different mazes— each one larger and more difficult than its predecessor. How, you may ask?


Click to display
Choose a horse to accompany you into the maze, move from square to square by using your paces and/or treats. The paces available for you and your horse regenerate at a rate of 1 pace every two hours (2-hrs) with the ability to increase up to 10 paces.

Note: Once you enter a maze, you must find your way out of it.

Once you’ve found the exit, you can then enter the next one. At the end of the 4th and 5th mazes, you will receive a divine horse!

What may I find within the mazes?


Gifts
Treats that can be used for extra moves
Spy Glasses that reveal a few squares around you
Obstacles to overcome that will let you take a shortcut
Reindeer gifts
Divine portals

Hint: To overcome an obstacle, you need to find the right horse that can pass through it.

New to this edition:


Divine portals will open at midnight on the 25th of December! When entering a divine portal, access to another 5 new mazes are available where you can win divine horses.

Jackpot prizes:



New members of the Pastries series: Yule Log and Christmas Pudding!



Tester’s tips:


Check below for some helpful tips as provided to us by our testers.

Click to display
☆ Spy Glasses can add up— they are helpful for the maze! Use them.

☆ A full gauge won’t help you accumulate paces, so use them regularly.

☆ Careful, clicking on the arrow at the bottom will make you go backwards!

☆ Using shortcuts sometimes costs you prizes/treats. Make sure you consider your options before using them. ( i.e. use them if you want to get the divines, don't use them if you want prizes)

☆ Don't forget to look at the mini-map for the square that is highlighted before you click to make sure you're going in the right direction.


Happy Holidays,

The Howrse Team

Is there anyway to exit a Maze once entered (other than get al the way to the end of it)? I thought last time we could and I can not seem to find anywhere to be able to do this.

No. Each maze is giving you a confirm-your-action popup with that info when you attempt to enter it for the first time. You either have to finish the maze, or you will remain stuck in there until the end. You can only exit-at-any-time a maze that you have completed already.

Thanks to all who helped with this promo with suggestions, maps, prize locations and how many steps/treats, etc. I was able to get Freya and will soon get Kocham, and may spend a bit more to get the couple prizes at the start of Frost. I did spend some real money, and alot of time getting passes from my own divines, but could never have completed what I did without all your help. Thanks again!

This will be one of the few times I didn't finish a promotion early. Which is good, because it means I utilized everything I possibly could for free. I'm very close to finishing the last maze and having my draft pastry set default smiley :d

I hate how long you have to wait for moves and I just waited to get one just to have the game reset the timer and did not give me a move. I stayed up to 6 in the morning for a move I never got. default smiley :( I'm going to bed.

Thank you so much for creating the maze! It’s super cool and entertaining! I look forward to it everyday (same with the other events).

Just opened up some more chests which allowed me to finish out Christmas Pudding, finish out Kocham cię, and have enough treats left over to get the Hera's Pack & Double-Sided Medallion from Frost's maze.

Overall, 3,920 passes spent on this event. Notably, I got:
8 Reindeer divines
3 "Regular" Divines
1 TC
2 Double-Sided Medallions
3 Hera's Packs
2 P. Stones
1 Themis Scale
1 Hermes Winged Staff
1 Nyx Pack
.. and plenty of other stuff

I'm quite satisfied.

Thanks PrimeHelix. Thats what I forgot to add- it is a Maze I have already completed, but went back in to try and get some prizes I missed. I can't seem to find a way to exit it though now.

default smiley (lol) Nevermind, I just realized the maze I was in wasn't one I had completed before(one of the Divine ones)...No wonder I couldn't figure out how to leave it!

Finished maze four just in time. One Christmas Chest bought which got me four treats. Turned out to be just enough to finish.
Quite happy with my result. I wouldn't have needed the chest if I had watched the time a little bit better to manage my paces, but you know. Ain't going to wake up at 4am for this default smiley xd

Such a shame you had to wait every hour just to move and technically the only way to fully finish all mazes is to buy your way into the game�

Didn't get freya. The maze was interesting. It was pass heavy but not complicated or glitchy like the two promos that loukoumi and freya came from.

Christmas pudding, Yule log and Freya ^-^ (and lots and lots of reindeer... finished the collection but I have lots of copies due to opening so many Christmas chests lol)

4 hera packs. 2 P stones. Nyx pack. Poisedons pack. 2 horns of plenty. Titan challenge. Themis scale, Hermes winged staff, 1 double sided medallion. Lots of other prizes. 155 of them in total lol but I spent sooooo many passes... I’m pleased overall though.

The only unfortunate thing was I got half way through the Punga maze and it ended before I could finish it. Great event though. Just wish treats weren’t so expensive and that I didn’t end up with duplicate reindeer - I try to hide them in my ‘other horses’ breeding farm as I dislike doubles.

Would be lovely if the game allowed me to gift them to those without them.

Is anyone else really upset that the Maze Event ended hours earlier than Howrse said it would? I received a message from Howrse saying the mazes would be available until January 6th 15:00. But it looks like they ended at 7:00 today. I’m so mad because I literally had one more space to progress to get out of the maze and receive the Titans challenge BMI. default smiley :'(

It didn't. The time and date on the banner at the top of your page is the time and date *in your timezone*. The time and date jn the PM is the time and date in GMT which is the timezone the game is based on.

Always ask if you are unsure

There's an idea - being able to put divines as ufo's on your page default smiley xd

I find it intriguing that on this server, the Golden Horseshoe draw was for Christmas Pudding, while on the US server it was for Yule Log.

It was for both, but different people got each divine.

So I know it's a bit late, however does anyone remember what that last golden prize was in the 3rd or 4th maze (ie the one that had the first double sided medallion, Hera's pack, and I think the Poseidon's pack? I never got to it and didn't feel.like spending passes

Now I'm wondering too! Was it one on the path? If so, if you have the co-ordinates, it should be on the list that's been bumped somewhere in the last few pages. If you find out do post!

I loved finding the reindeer, and all the BMIs were nice. personally I would like the directions to be more clear on the map, multiple times I clicked the wrong button, set me back.
