House Cleaning

Welcome to House Cleaning! The event with the aim to clean up the house and get some tickets resolved. The event is open to both developers and players, and players can help out a lot by providing saves which can be submitted to the TicketHounds TicketHounds account.

You can find out more about the event here:

On the initial month we were able to build up a nice supply of saves as a result of these being submitted by players and also knock out around 100 tickets. As more players and developers get involved we can then increase this even further to make every set as great as they can be!
