The 2014 ROBLOX Easter Egg Hunt (titled Save the Eggverse!) is the fifth annual Egg Hunt on ROBLOX. In years past, ROBLOX hosted Egg Drops in 2008 and 2010, and the first ROBLOX Egg Hunt to be held in one place was the 2012 hunt. After the massive success of the 2013 hunt, the user Games created another Egg Hunt in 2014 to coincide with Easter in the same year. At the Egg Hunt, players must hunt for eggs on an all-terrain map. The players will then receive a badge when an egg is found. The egg corresponding to the badge will be obtained as well. Several different items were released in the Catalog in order to assist players with the egg hunt. BLOXcasts released in March and April 2014 gave players different hints to various aspects of the 2014 Egg Hunt. This year's Egg Hunt was gathered around a story of about Good vs Evil. In the story, it is told that Lucky Lapin, a rabbit who collects rare and fabulous eggs. He was suddenly kidnapped by Rabid Rabbit, who is his evil counterpart from an alternate Eggverse. Rabid Rabbit then stole all the eggs and tried to escape back to his own Eggverse, but his teleporter malfunctioned and scattered all the eggs across the eggverse. The goal of the game is for the player to find all of the lost eggs, defeat Rabid Rabbit, and save the eggverse.
This egg hunt differs from several other of the egg hunts of previous years. The eggs this year are smaller than in the 2012 and 2013 hunts, and they no longer rain from the sky. There are 31 eggs that can be found in the hunt, which is currently the second highest number up to this point, while 2017 has the highest with 43 eggs. This year also marks the first time that universes have been utilized in an egg hunt, and that each map was composed of terrain.
The egg hunt closed at 6:00 PM PST on April 23, 2014.
The 2014 Egg Hunt takes place on five different maps, a first for any Roblox Egg Hunt. The Egg Hunt utilizes universes in order for players to explore each of the five maps. The five maps are the same location, but at five different time periods (Prehistoric/Neolithic, Medieval, Present, Uncertain Future, and a Forsaken Future overwhelmed by rabid and his minions. They make up a story that the player experiences while playing the Egg Hunt. The basic environmental structure of the first map basically stays the same in the other four, but other factors are changed in order to simulate change over time in the location. All of the maps are named CS followed by a number which corresponds with the chronological sequence that players will get to experience each of the maps. Although the game was originally set up to where players had to find a certain amount of eggs in order to unlock the next map, it has recently been altered so that players can teleport to the map of their choosing.
CS1 (Neolithic Times)
The first map available to players in the 2014 Easter Egg Hunt is titled CS1. The map is made of Terrain, which is a first for any egg hunt. Three large mountains are placed at the corners of the map. Players spawn on one of these mountains. At the spawn there are several Easter Island head statue carvings that contain teleporters between them to the other universes. Players must have a certain number of eggs in order to pass through each teleporter. This mountain also contains a waterfall. A secret cave is located behind this waterfall. A river flows from the waterfall and divides the map in half. A second mountain contains two stone trap doors that are used in order for players to be awarded the Egg of Friendship. Various trees, bushes, and mushrooms dot the terrain, which changes in elevation at different points on the map. The eggs that can be found in CS1 are the Basic Egg, the Egg of Life, the Egg of Time, the Egg of Luck, the Egg of Friendship, the Aqua Fabergé Egg of Never-ending Winter, and the Elegant Fabergé Egg of Fancy Times.
CS2 (Medieval Times)This is the second map that is available to players. It is similar in design to CS1; like CS1, it is composed of terrain, is divided by a river, and has a waterfall that provides a flow of water for the river. A bridge is built over the river, which spills out into a lagoon. A pond is located to the right of the river. A town is located on the banks of the river, as is a lake. The eggs that can be retrieved here are the Egg of Verticality, the Bellegg, the Poached Egg, the Basic Egg, the Egg of Partnership, the Egg of Space, the Egg of Luck, the Egg of Life, the Elegant Fabergé Egg of Fancy Times, the Aqua Fabergé Egg of Never-ending Winter, and the Black Iron Fabergé Egg.
CS3 (Present)CS3 takes place in the present, with a modern city replacing the village from CS2. The city contains modern skyscrapers, roads, cars, and fountains. A windmall farm is adjacent to the city. The map is located in the same environment as the previous two maps and contains the same environmental factors, such as the river and layout of the mountains. The eggs that can be found here are Basic Egg, Egg of Frost, Luregg, Mercurial Egg, Malicious Egg, Egg of Cooperation, Egg of Life, Egg of Verticality, Egg of Luck, Black Iron Fabergé Egg, Aqua Fabergé Egg of Never-ending Winter, Elegant Fabergé Egg of Fancy Times, and Gilded Fabergé Egg of Bygone Days.
CS4 (Uncertain Future)CS4 is the fourth map in the sequence, and takes place in the future. The map looks similar to the previous maps. It has a big mountain with a river running down it, and has a big city with destroyed civilian buildings. According to Lucky Lapin, this map showcases the future where he is never freed, and the surrounding area is deprived of joy. The once vibrant city is in ruins and blanketed with moss. One of the buildings is on the other side, with a secret room under it. Players spawn at the top of the big mountain, just like the previous maps. The eggs that can be retrieved here are the Souvenir Egg, the Aqua Fabergé Egg of Never-ending Winter, the Eggy Pop, the Malicious Egg, the Glided Fabergé Egg of Bygone Days, the Ruby Fabergé Egg of Sparkle Time, the Elegant Fabergé Egg of Fancy Times, the Black Iron Fabergé Egg, the Egg of Flawless Teamwork, the Egg of Frost, the Basic Egg, the Egg of Flawless Deduction, the Egg of Shield, the Egg of Verticality, the Egg of Life, and the Egg of Luck, but be careful! Many Malicious Eggs spawn here all over the map.
CS5 (Forsaken Future)
This map looks like the destroyed city has now been rebuilt, but the Rabid Rabbit has taken over with his small little minions. There is a boss battle here for players to defeat Rabid Rabbit by going to portal next to a statue.

It was seen on a forum post that the eggs from 2014 would not be hatching, and maybe the eggs in 2015 would. Due to this, players rumoured that all the eggs were going to go on sale like the eggs from 2008 and 2010.
These items provided assistance to players in the 2014 Egg Hunt. They are only available for purchase and use for the duration of the hunt.
The event generally received strongly negative reviews from users, due to its many bugs, and its constant opening and closing throughout the week. The Egg Hunt launched on April 11, but was closed about an hour later due to major bugs. This resulted in players losing connection from the game. The Egg Hunt was later made playable to friends only, and then it was removed from the front page. On April 12, the game re-opened for some few hours and many players showed up there again, but it was closed once again due to numerous bugs to be fixed. However, when Games closed it, players got inside of the game due to a server bug. Chiefjustus, a ROBLOX admin, posted a thread on ATR (All Things ROBLOX), informing people that the Egg Hunt will not re-open this weekend. However, it reopened again on the 14th of April, and there were still quite a few bugs. The game closed again at 5PM PST on April 16, 2014 so they can add CS4. They also fixed some of the bugs, such as Poached Egg not spawning, Faberges spawning underground (in the terrain) and the Bellegg not respawning. It was then stated that the Egg Hunt would reopen the next day, which it did. The Egg Hunt closed yet again on April 17, 2014 right before 4:30 PM PST. It opened (yet again) on April 18, 2014 at around 1:00 PM PST.
Besides the mass opening and closings, it was also criticized for how it was made. Many users complained of the game being too complicated with all the different places they had to go to in order to receive eggs, and others complained that they were not able to follow people in the Egg Hunt games, so therefore, one could not go egg hunting with friends.Because of these reasons, many users refused to play the Egg Hunt. Many users also stated that Egg Hunt 2013 and 2012 were better than 2014 in many ways such as for being lag-free, having working eggs, having rounder meshes, simplicity, style, and no universes or terrain.
