Unique Spotlight – Dark Side On The Wall

Remember: All in all you’re just another brick in the wall. And there is no dark side on the moon really. Matter of fact it’s all dark.

Owner: Wyando

How To Get: Uncanny Uniques Store

Meaning: It mostly acted as a “thank you” unique for the help when I started this incredible game almost 3 years ago. But even after all those years, this unique still seems to be full of surprises…

Which number Unique is this for you? This is my first Unique.

Closing Thoughts: I “just” wanted my first unique to have a personal touch (“Wy”) and combined it with two of my favourite albums “The Wall” and “Dark Side on the Moon”. Listen to these, best with headphones, while figuring out how to build a wall…

Unique Spotlight – Indigo

A dark soul, lost and afraid, stumbles upon the Tavern of the Damned.
There she finds her salvation in a new family, finds parts of herself she could only dream and learns love is for eternity

Owner: indigo

How To Get: It is in the Uncanny Uniques store. I have a limited number of TDs which I’ll trade for a 1985 card. A 16 card if it is a Unique. Or an upgrade to any of my none 1985 saved cards.

Meaning: I was completely obsessed with WallaBee, and I wanted something that I could exchange for other Player Uniques. I liked the idea of something that I had ‘invented’ being part of the game.

Which number Unique is this for you? This is my first Unique.

Closing Thoughts: This is a representation of my first online role player character who at one point felt like a bit part of my personal story and had a lot of meaning. Indigo was/is quite special to me and I still use her full name as a username for some websites/games. She represents a time of exploration, self-discovery and transformation.

Unique Spotlight – Clover

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” ~Dr. Seuss

Owner: Trent

How To Get: The item was just added into the store to share with everyone 🙂

Meaning: It was commissioned to gift out to all the great WallaFriends I made in the many years of playing this game.

Which number Unique is this for you? It was my 2nd Unique. When I commissioned my first one, I had no plans to do another, but Andy really gets you hooked.

Closing Thoughts: I am not as active as I once was. By placing it into the store, I am able to put my Unique out there so all players can add it to their collections. I especially hope that the clover finds all the new players that I haven’t had the chance to interact with yet.

Collections & Uniques Update

Hello Collectors,

Over the past few years, we have added many new items into WallaBee, both in general Sets and Uniques. As we continue to grow the quantity of items players can collect, we need some better organization. We attempted to do this with the last app update, by splitting Player Uniques from WallaBee Uniques within the Uniques window. This was a good first attempt at reorganization, but is unfortunately still lacking what we’d like to see. With recent confusion over Player Uniques and WallaBee Uniques, we feel that a definitive split is necessary within the Uniques umbrella for peace of mind moving forward. Other items like Grab Bags, WallaBoo! Uniques, and ‘player sets’ don’t fit well under a general ‘Unique’ umbrella. The team has been discussing some various improvements for better organization and speed (both frontend and backend) and believe we have a solid plan to implement this.

The app portion of this update will take some time to implement, so there’s no worry about getting sideswiped by this better reorganization in the near future. However, we believe we can begin rolling out some of these changes on ItemBrowser within the next week or so (Artwork used on ItemBrowser are placeholders). This early adaptation will hopefully allow everyone time to get used to some new terminology that will be used within the game.

Collections

To better help explain what WallaBee is all about, all items will be categorized under this new heading, grouped accordingly by the following.

Sets

  • Notes:
    • Sets are Themed Collections of items that can be collected and completed for a reward.
    • These items are produced by WallaBee as open edition items, available for all players to collect.
    • Current examples of this are anything under the ‘Sets’ portion of the app (circular icon).
  • Future Organization (running titles):
    • Generation 1: The Early Sets
      • First 50 sets in the game: A Trip to the Circus – Bank Heist.
    • Generation 2: Beware the Jabberwocky
      • Next 50 sets: Andrew Cameron’s Alice – Behind The Scenes.
    • Generation 3: The Rise of Munzee Man
      • Next 50 sets: A Day in Singapore – WallaBee Fitness And Wellbeing.
    • Generation 4: Make a Wish in the Wishing Well
      • Next 50 sets: Freshly Squeezed – current.

Collectibles

  • Notes:
    • Collectibles are special items that can be collected, but cannot be completed.
    • These items are produced by either WallaBee, Players, or sponsored businesses and brands.
    • Collectibles won’t show missing item silhouettes.
    • Current examples of this are Uniques, Branded Items, Wallagraphic Items.
  • Future Organization:
    • Exclusives
      • Formerly known as WallaBee Uniques, these items are issued by WallaBee that may extend the theming of a set (Pie-Eyed Andy) or stand alone (Red Herring).
      • These items are available specifically through gameplay.
      • New Icon (TBD).
    • Themed Exclusives
      • Same as above, but categorized into a theme (i.e. Santa Hats, Grab Bags, Mystery Boxes, etc.).
      • New Icons (TBD).
    • Uniques
      • Formerly a combination of all Uniques, these will only include Player Distributed items (i.e. KivaBee, A Little Gift, Rainbow Bridge, etc.).
      • New Star icon to help with Themed Uniques.
    • Themed Uniques
      • Same as above, but categorized into player-decided themes (i.e. Texas Music Legends, WallaBoo, Event Items, etc.) based on owner’s request (setup process TBD).
      • Same new Star icon as above, with an icon inside showing a theme (similar to current set icons).
    • Wallagraphics
      • These are rare cards found within Grab Bags. No change.
    • Branded Items
      • These are sponsored item.
      • These may be absorbed by Themed Exclusives in the future.

We believe change will also allow us to better implement the ability for players to save variants in a way that makes sense. We are really looking forward to this proposed project and hope you will support this decision for better organization and growth.

*Everything listed above is subject to change. Adjustments may happen based on feedback and/or development needs. Updates will be made when available should changes occur.

Unique Spotlight – Tarantino

Every dog has his day.

Owner: Wyando

How To Get: Not directly, as I have different goals for each set. I will use this Unique to support trading for my different set goals.

Meaning: This Unique is a homage to (one of) my favourite filmmakers.

Which number Unique is this for you? This is my third Unique.

Closing Thoughts: Some eavesdropping (only a few possible regarding their french 😉)
Mr. Blonde: Guess what, I think I’m parked in the red-zone!
Mr. Blue: I like her early stuff. You know, ‘Lucky Star’, ‘Borderline’ – but once she got into her ‘Papa Don’t Preach’ phase, I don’t know, I tuned out.
Mr. Brown: Hey, you guys are making me lose my… train of thought here. I was saying something, what was it?
Mr. White: What, did you forget your french fries, to go with the soda?
Mr. Pink: I mean everbody panics, everybody, things get tense, it’s human nature to panic, I don’t care what you name it you just can’t help it.
Mr. Orange: No it wasn’t Pam Grier. Pam Grier was the other one. Pam Grier did the film. Christie Love was like Pam Grier TV Show without Pam Grier.

After all, a bloody nice start to his career as filmmaker. Well done, Mr Tarantino!

Forums – Back Online Soon

Hello Collectors,

Over the weekend, we reduced the number of available forums down to just “Item Directory,” as most of you are aware. We have since been cleaning up the forums on the backend for the benefit of the community. Our goal is to keep useful forums in the game and remove inadequate ones. The forums will be back online soonish with a revitalized “Official Business” forum. Once online, please read through the two posts within this new forum, as your participation in the forums relies on knowing the rules.

The remaining forums include:

  • Official Business
  • NewBees Hive
  • Item Directory
  • The Trading Post
  • Auction House
  • Party Room

Please keep all conversations within these forums on topic. Deviating comments and posts will be removed.

WallaBee Chat, General Chat, and House forums have been removed for the present time. We have no timetable available for if and when these forums will come back. Many external sites are currently used for chatting about the game, including Facebook and GroupMe. One Facebook group that we recommend checking out is WallaBee Nation. The House forums were originally hidden until a player was sorted, but these forums have been visible for everyone to see for 1.5 years. Unfortunately, this is an aspect that has been ‘broken,’ so it will remain removed until it can be hidden like before.

Any additional questions, comments, concerns? Email: support@wallabeegame.com

WallaBoo! 2018 Recap

Hello Collectors,

It’s been almost a week since we kicked off WallaBoo! 2018. Now it’s time to showoff some highlights of the event for everyone to enjoy. Players came in from near and far for this ghoulish event (shoutout to the Aussies)! Although the actual event on Saturday wasn’t very long, many players were here for the whole weekend to catch up with friends and have fun… including this familiar face…

Keep Austin Weird – P.C. Nicole Baldwin

 

Various Walla-themed activities took place throughout the weekend, including some WallaBee trivia and ‘Trick or Treat’ item search. We were very happy to see the number of players out at this event and hope that everyone enjoyed themselves. Those who participated in the activities received some mystery boxes today after their sheets had been graded, courtesy of RedCarRobbie. However, RedCarRobbie hasn’t stopped there. He has commissioned three special Player Uniques to commemorate the effort of those who went above and beyond by not only completing the activities, but getting perfect scores. He will soon be distributing his Unique to these players for a job well done, in random order.

    

 

A special shoutout to Texas Bandits for winning Andy’s raffle for a one-of-a-kind, hand-drawn image of “The Electric Professor.” The Electric Professor was originally a candidate for the Creepy Comics set, but was left for this awesome drawing instead. Congratulations again, Texas Bandits!

          

 

We finished up the weekend with a brief ‘jog’ at Celebration Park in Allen, TX. Saying goodbye is always the most difficult part of ending an enjoyable weekend, but we tried to catch as many WallaBee players as we could before they left. Here’s who remained until the very end. Thanks for staying!

P.C. Nicole Baldwin

We want to thank everyone who was able to attend the event this year! We enjoyed hosting this get-together and hope you enjoyed your time with us. As WallaBee grows, we hope that you will grow alongside us. Much love from WBHQ!

Unique Spotlight – Sheldon

Not all those who wander are lost. Eureka! Let’s go see what we can find.

Owner: Cali49

How To Get: Sheldon is free for the asking, to those who do not have one.

Meaning: Sheldon was created as an extension to the Gold Rush set from last year. That set highlighted Sheldon’s journey from New York to the gold fields of California in 1849. After surviving train bandits, buffalo stampedes, a scare from a huge grizzly bear and claim jumpers, he finally made his fortune, with the help of his new friend, Sierra the Grizzly Bear. He definitely deserved a Unique! The history of the California Gold Rush is a story that fascinates me, and Sheldon represents all those courageous gold-seekers who gave up everything to head to California to search for gold. Keep your eyes open, Sheldon’s story isn’t over.

Which number Unique is this for you? Sheldon was my first Unique.

Closing Thoughts: I love Uniques. They add such a personal touch to WallaBee, as most have a personal meaning and story behind them. Collecting them and creating them is my favorite aspect of the game.
