Historical Notes

In the first year of the event, Easter Eggs were added directly to a player's inventory through random events when a player visited a section of Torn corresponding to that egg. The Black Easter Egg had a chance to be found when a player clicked Crimes. This theme around crime was kept as finding Black Easter Eggs gave crime experience from 2011 on. [4]

70,344 Black Easter Eggs were in circulation the day colored eggs were converted to Chocolate Eggs.
