The only reason I managed to finish a few puzzles with pink pieces is because one time I went to a board game convention (don't remember what it was called). But beyond that, even when I do get StreetPass, nobody ever has pink pieces.

@Tsuchinoko So in other words, if most of us want to complete our puzzles, we need to visit Japan?

Well, no, I was just responding to people saying that it was a mistake for Nintendo having the system for acquiring pink pieces be though connecting with other 3DS owners out in the real world.

In Australia I can walk around the CBD in Sydney for a good hour and get anywhere between 1 and 5 streetpass hits. Oddly, every second person I meet has ~10 or so puzzles completed, so I have no idea how they do that.

On the other hand, uni's starting soon and that means walking around the CBD for 3-4 days every week. I might actually finish one of these puzzles now

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

See! Even outside of Japan it depends on where you are

I live in the US and have managed to complete all of my puzzles, even acquiring the pink pieces. Here are some quick tips on how I did it, and I suggest you all do the same.

Slowly drive by bus stops in the morning that have a lot of kids. I've found you increase your chances of getting someone else's 3DS near yours if you dangle candy out your car window as you pass by these stops.

Walk around schools whenever you can. Recess is a great opportunity to be super close to a bunch of youngsters who may also own a 3DS. Don't get bogged down with conversation with any of them, just slowly walk between all the playground equipment and don't leave any grain of sand unturned!

If possible, walk up and down the hallways of schools. I wear a trenchcoat because the one I own has a pocket that fits my 3DS perfectly, nice and snug.

Using these few tried-and-true techniques, you all will surely complete all of those puzzles.

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.

Why does it take so long for the streetpass green light to appear. I streetpassed with my friend (no pink pieces btw) and it too, at least two minutes for the light to appear.

For some reason these don't sound like good ideas for people over 25...

Pretty much, the only exceptions being those of us lucky enough to go to various gaming conventions for more then once a year, or ever.

@Wingedfish

Yeah I agree with you. I'm 25 & graduated back in 2007 from high school the last thing I want to do is go back to school just to get streetpass hits.

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

The only street pass I get is from these weeaboos at school. I live in a really spread out mid size city so it kind of sucks for me.

Sowwy! But then again, we in Japan never got games like VVVVVV or Night Sky, Colours 3D or Mutant Mudds. Pretty much all of those really nice looking western developed E-shop titles have passed us by.

Thanks to my epic university travel regime, I ended up getting around eighty puzzle pieces over the last three weeks. Maybe, at the end of the first year, I'd actually have all the sets done!

Nintendo needs to shift their butts and send out some puzzles to us European 3DS owners.
Also, there's an unofficial 3DS streetpass event at the ritzy cinema in Brixton, London on the 23rd of this month. Be sure to attend if you can.

Got a hit while watching the beginning of Django Unchained. Scored another special piece for Super Mario 3D Land.

I don't think so, I was able to finish all the puzzle panels released in the UK by going to things like EuroGamer Expo and Nintendo hosted events.

Is there any way to get pink pieces besides streetpass? If not, who gets them in the first place?

I'm curious. Thanks.

That's what I've wondered. Do random people get pink pieces with a new puzzle? How do pink pieces get into circulation to begin with?
