Anyone else out there having an issue with the Second Task in collecting Yule Ball invitations from greenhouses? I’ve tried three different times and haven’t collected any.

Am I missing something?

    I thought it was only me , but it looks like I’m not alone! I went to three different greenhouses but was only able to get one invitation.

    Well, the increased drops doesn't seem to have kicked in here! I have visited ten in the last hour or so and got one invitation. Might try restarting and seeing if that helps.

    @WondrWomn13 Restarting seemed to help. Good luck!

    I am just waiting for friends to open their last gifts so I can send some and complete this task!

    @Magpie31 did you delete and reinstall the app or something else?

    @WondrWomn13 I just force closed the app, then restarted my phone. It worked well for me.

    whether they fix it or not, i think it is better to hit multiple greenhouses in quicker succession than sit on one or two greenhouses and hit it/them every five minutes ... assuming you are willing and able to travel as necessary to where multiple greenhouses are located in relative proximity to one another

    that is what we did earlier today

    i went 5 for 11 (though i started off 1 for 6), and my wife went 5 for 13, at greenhouses for getting yule ball invitations

    it wasn’t pretty, but it got done:

    I think it was roughly one in three for a success when I did it. Thankfully, the local place that has greenhouses also has a fortress and inns, so I just did fortress battles while waiting for the two greenhouses to be usable again.

    I had the same problem. Went to 4 different locations and went in several times each in order to get the invites.

    got my first on "pick" number 18. Reported as a bug. The next day, after the devs posted the adjustment, I got two from four picks. I stopped keeping track after that but it took about ten tries to get my final two. This was all across 8 or 9 houses several miles apart. On to the next step.

    PS: thanks for the gifts, friends!

    I found if I tried twice at the same greenhouse my odds were better. Good luck. Also still waiting for friends to open gifts...

    I’ve been sitting at a greenhouse for longer than I want to admit, but I finally got enough invitations! I was going between 3 in a park yesterday, but I only got 1 out of 9 tries 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Hey! I have a problem. It’s about collecting the yule ball invites. When I go to the inns or greenhouses, the invations have showed up but some how I can’t ” collect” them. Invations have came around 15-20times but I have collected just 2/5.

    sorry bad English

    @AnnieDonnel just to clarify, when you say you have 2/5, are you looking at your registry page? This page, bottom left:

    If you’re looking at this page, that item actually comes from event portkeys. It’s a common confusion I think.
