Hi everyone! I’m thrilled to tell you about all of the new things we have happening in Kinzville over the next few weeks! Let’s take a look!



  • You may have seen your pet’s requesting this game in the past, but now you can finally play Grand Grotto in the Arcade! This completely new puzzle game features 50 unlockable levels of fun! Clear a path of water through the grotto while matching colored gems, freeing fish and rescuing other sea creatures! The first time you complete all of the levels you’ll win the Grand Grotto Trophy!

  3. dilitant says:

    I haven’t received my Deluxe September box – when are they coming this month?

  4. elizton says:

    Man I can’t win a game of switcherooz either it’s hard and so I guess I will not be getting this deluxe prize I think maybe you should change it to the amount of money we can win please do something

  5. nascarsmile98 says:

    I have played for hours and also cannot win even one game of switcherooz. This is SO frustrating and very discouraging. If anyone wants to help each other win this game let me know. My username is nascarsmile98.

  6. 1aa2bb3cc says:

    Someone posted that they played with a friend who would pass every time when it was the friend’s turn and so the person won. I tried that, it is the only way I could win. Good luck, it’s a very frustrating game

  7. joscelyn5 says:

    i hate to complain but this months deluxe challenge is impossible i have lost track of how many games of switcherooz i have played and lost… i cannot win this game has anyone any idea of how to win this

    • mamabeart says:

      If you send me a friend request, I will play with you. I will let you win 3 games if you’ll let me win 3. (Just keep passing your turn on the games when you’re letting me win, and I’ll do the same for you.) My user name is mamabeart. I really want to finish this challenge, but I can’t win ONE game, let alone three!

  8. alucard says:

    Why do they even HAVE Switcherooz? I really REALLY dislike this game!! I never win just the regular game on Webkinz, much less the one in the Tournament Arena!!! What’s the point in playing if you NEVER EVER WIN? This is ridiculous! Having us play a game where the odds are NEVER in our favor! I am NOT going to spend 10,000KC just to skip this game! The Tournament games, or Deluxe Only games, should NEVER be a part of any challenges games. This is sooooo unfair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. 1donnaw says:

    I have been trying to win a game of switcharoo. I have yet to win 1 game over 2 days time. No explaining how to win a game.

  10. intoodeep says:

    I do not feel as inadequate in always losing at Switcherooz now after reading other comments about others also struggling to figure it out!

    • 1aa2bb3cc says:

      i have been looking and looking for instructions on how to play the game but I can’t find anything. How do I “fix” the color of my team so it can’t change to the opponent’s color?

      • 73kibarry says:

        Ive been wonderng the same thing

        • 73kibarry says:

          I found instructions on the game in my arcade room but I can’t copy it for some reason. Long and short, move your piece to a dark green tile to make more and a light green tile to jump to a new spot. that’s not very helpful, sorry. I can’t win and I’m not spending the cash to win the prize unless someone gives me a gift card or friends me and I will do the same…pass until you win and hope you do the same. Kibarry73

          • ImaPepper says:

            Yes, the instructions are very minimal. If you notice the pattern of the light and dark tiles when you select your Zingoz, you might be able to choose the best place for your play. If you want to add a Zingoz, you can change the color of your opponent’s Zingoz for one tile in every direction…(if there are opposing Zingoz in those spaces). If you want to MOVE your piece, you will vacate a spot…which could leave your team open for takeover…but you can change the opponent’s Zingoz TWO tile spaces away. I hope someone can use this information to make a strategy that works….good luck, everyone! If you need a friend to “pass” games with, you can add me–Ilse2010–if I’m on I’ll help.
