The main goal is to collect . Maze coins can be collected by performing various actions in the game: collect gold and food; fight in the multiplayer mode; breed, hatch, and feed monsters. Maze coins earned during one event will not carry over into another maze event.
Each player has a "pool" of maximum maze coins they can collect for each action in the game. Over time, that pool refills and is completely refilled after 4 hours. The maximum pool size is as follows:
Each time a player completes an action, they have a chance to receive a certain number of maze coins:Monsterwood will offer a Maze Coin Happy Hour. This allows players to watch many videos, earning 20 for each video. Typically, players are able to view up to 20 videos in one sitting, earning up to 400. During larger maze events, a special one-day only Maze Coin Dungeon is usually available, allowing players to earn even more maze coins. If players use any maze collector tickets, they will be unable to make regular collections while the tickets are active.
Maze PathsIn larger maze events, a special limited time path is available. This path usually earns players the new monster (the final monster in the maze) at a significantly lower maze coin cost than completing the maze.
Often during the larger maze events, a happy hour will be in effect, reducing the maze coin cost for each move in the maze. Most discounts are 10% off, although typically there are one or two 30% discounts. Historically, the discount times would be known in advance, however, this information is no longer publicly available. That said, the very first hour of a larger maze event usually sees a 20% discount in movement costs. Additionally, mazes that contain a limited time path will see a discount during the first hour the limited time path is available.
Often when performing a task, the player will not receive any maze coins. A common fix is to force quit the game, restart it, and perform the action again.
