I've hit several greenhouses and none of them have counted towards this task. My friends are experiencing the same issue elsewhere.

    Nevermind. I was able to fix the issue by rebooting my phone, though I had rebooted it before setting out on this task after 2:00. *shrug*

    Having the same issue. Left the mall since it only had one greenhouse but have hit six other greenhouses and haven't gotten one. Hope this isn't a task we can't complete or it gets fixed very soon.

    They seem to be rarer in greenhouses. I’ve come across two after visiting a few greenhouses.

    signed in to see what you all were saying about green house invitations. I haven't tried restarting yet but I did pull on at least eight plants. I picked up one mushroom that was nearby but it was not from my pre-event harvest and the greenhouse was still growing. Battery died anyway so I will try later.

    @IMAGINATIO MUCH rarer. Special items like this have always been guaranteed in Inns. It's odd that the same does not apply to Greenhouses (which there are less of in general). In fact, I'm still receiving invitations from Inns even though I'm on the second set of tasks and no longer need them. I've never seen that happen during past brilliant events. I hope they will increase the commonality of invites in Greenhouses. I have friends who have visited Greenhouses more than 20 times and still only have two invites.

    Something is wrong.. first greenhouse gave me a ticket, the subsequent 10 greenhouses gave nothing. Furthermore, the 'send gift' inventory list now crashes the app with a 'wireless network error' (happens each time). Rebooted phone, will try again tomorrow.

    Edit: after phone reboot and home on wifi, the app still crashes when swiping through my gift list.

    Also, after successfully sending some gifts, the app now crashes immediately when I access the gift list. It's as if the app treats the ticket as a gift and puts it in inventory, which it can't stomach. Reported bug, urge everyone to do same if you have this issue.

    A friend of mine is on the third task list, and, apparently, Yule Ball Invitations are not guaranteed from Gnome Confoundables either. Once again, this has never been the case in past brilliant events. Is this intentional to make it more difficult, or is it a bug?

    @TheRainbowBrite Not sure about guaranteed, but they did seem to be more abundant. According to the twitter link posted by @MrSciGuy the HPWU team are looking into it, so hopefully the invitations will be found more easily.

    So... What is the point of greenhouses if we might not get ingredients? Seems odd to me.

    Glad to hear they are aware of the issue! I’m on the second set of tasks and have visited several greenhouses this afternoon/ evening and not found a single invite yet.

    May be location. I hit 5 greenhouses today and got a total of 4 so far.

    Same issue here I hit tons of greenhouses today with no luck but was still getting them from inns. Had to come home before they posted the fix so hoping when I venture out tomorrow they will be more plentiful.

    @Magpie31 I agree, I wonder why they couldn't just increase the yield results from greenhouses to include the Yule Ball Invitation and the ingredients... Regardless, still glad they increased the odds of the invitation drops.

    Are these invitations suppose to check off great Hall page, if they are they not counting on that page. Collecting invitations is stupid if they not going towards that page.

    @Adrabella - nope. the yule ball invitations we might get as reward bonuses from inns, greenhouses, and gnome trace encounters are more like the doxy wings and werewolf tufts and troll bogies that were trace encounter bonuses for the respective SOS assignments ... nowhere to actually “put” them, except in assignment counter that the app keeps for your progress. the registry page image toward which fragments are collected and placed is a yule ball programme (according to guide at, not yule ball invitation.

    I’ve been to 10 greenhouses and have just been out again. Got one from first and nothing since. I did wonder if it’s because my gifts is full to 30 and none of my sent buttons are available to send any.

    Had the same issue. But for me it was because I had maxed out my gifts. When I started sending them to friends, I started getting the invites

    It's definitely random, I was at the same greenhouse for 30+ mins, (my barfolos had run out) and about every 3 or so plant pulls, I'd get the invitation.

    Now, this is sorta related, I'm still picking up the invitations from inns, I've long since finished the quest. They do not count towards the greenhouse ones, though.

    I’m still 0 for however many greenhouses. I dunno about it having been easier in inns, I had to hit multiple inns before I got the needed number of invitations. I did reboot the game a few times. So.

    Question: where do these invitations go? Do they disappear into the ether or are they collated somewhere? Do they reflect in some other reward like a sticker or something?

    I ran into a few that dis not dispense them, but was able to get them all in less than 10 minutes as there are about 15 or so greenhouses in my general vicinity.

    Fortunately for me at least, I completed everything last night. So now I just gotta level up to 65*

    I’ve now managed to send some gifts to make space and have been out just now and 4 out of 6 different greenhouses gave me the invites .

    I have only hit one greenhouse so far, but I was given an invitation.
