- For answers to commonly asked twins questions, see below.
Each piñata has a value. If you check the Value tab on the information window, you can see an in depth overview of the piñata's value in several sub-categories. They are as follows:
This value increases very, very slowly over time. However, this is the only value which does constantly and reliably increases, so if you are aiming for a high value piñata, keep the same one throughout to get the most out of this category.
The piñata gets a boost in value when overjoyed. So, if selling a high value piñata, or attempting to get into the leader boards, it may be worth forcing an overjoy.
There is a very small chance that any egg could bear twins. When twins are born no announcement is made, but each of the piñata born will have some added Twin Value.
In Trouble in Paradise, twins are easy to obtain, simply by completing the mini-game within a certain time limit.
In Classic, infrequently an egg will hatch and produce two (twin) pinatas instead of one. View thread
Due to a bug in Classic, you can only ever get Whirlm twins.
Do they look like wild-cards? How can you tell if pinatas are twins?
No. A twin looks exactly like any other pinata of that species (but sells for more than a non-twin). To confirm if a pinata is a twin, select it, press for Information, and examine the Values page. If there is a non-zero value for Twin value field, then it is a twin. View thread
Do you get a pop-up message about twins when they hatch?
No. If you're mass-romancing pinata, just keep an eye on the Sell price, when selling them. Twins sell for a 50% higher price. View thread
What's so special about twins?
Well, in Classic, they're fairly uncommon, so if you happen to have romanced have a pair of twins, you're fortunate :) View thread
Has anyone gotten twin Wild-cards in Classic?
Not yet. They're even more rare than getting a normal Wild-card. View thread
Due to a bug in the game, you can only ever get Whirlm twins.
Is there anything that increases the chance of getting twins?
What are the odds of getting twins in Classic?
No one knows the odds, especially since it's not obvious when a twin has been born, and some probably have been unknowingly sold. View thread
