How to trade pins
How to trade pins. This is the article we posted on the help section of the game for kids. We have included here for parents with pictures of the screens.
Become a global trader!
We are keen to see Habitat players head outside and explore the world.
We will reward you for going outside and finding Habitat locations.
There are currently over 100 Habitat pins in 13 different countries around the world; to find the virtual pins make sure you turn on the location services and sign in.
When you are near a Habitat location you will be notified about the location and which unique virtual pin you will find.
There are a number of ways you can search for pins:
– Use the map to see the pins around you and around the world,
– By country; will show you what pins are available in each country,
– By Pin; type in the name of the pin you would like to find.
At each Habitat location there is a unique virtual pin you can collect. These pins can be traded at a later date.
When you are close enough to the pin, tap on the pin to collect. The pin is instantly added to your Pin Gallery.
For additional Habitat points answer the multiple-choice questions on the reverse side of the pin.
Collecting more than one pin
You can collect up to three of each pin at any one time. Although you do have to wait 30 minutes after collecting your first pin before you can receive your second pin at that location.
You Pin Gallery will show which pins you own, how many of each pin you have and what pins you have up for trading.
Once you have collected a pin it automatically goes into your trading list, ie the trading icon is on. You can turn off the trading icon by simply tapping it when your pin is full screen.
If another player puts one of your pins on their wish list you will be notified they would like to make a trade. You will be able to see what pin/pins they will offer in return for you pin.
You then have three choices:
– accept their offer,
– reject their offer or
– ask them to make another offer.
Trades between two players will stay open for an hour and you can trade up with 5 different players at a time.
Any pins you would like to add to your gallery can be added by tapping them on your wish list. You can find pins to add to your wish list by doing either a search by country or by pin name.
There are currently 102 pins you can collect. They are located in the following countries:
You will need to work with other players around the world to get the full set of pins.
