411 & FAQ

The Secret Stash just got a new identity and it's better than ever!  Locating the hidden stash takes fast thinking and faster action!  Each time that you trigger a Secret Stash you will be presented with three choices of finding a stash, and now 3 of your friends can help.  You can choose the difficulty of the stash that you want to find, and you can increase your chances by adding your friends help to the stash level of your choice.  You can place all three friends on the same level or spread them across the choices to increase your chance, but act fast because 15 seconds goes by quickly!
