I think the problem is more people hoarding pins. I was there on member but and I saw multiple people walking around and each of them had multiple of all the HOS pins. It's ridiculous. Get the 1 you need for your collection and then move on and let someone else try to get them.To be clear, we were also informed by some employees that their lanyards hadn't been refreshed. And that they are having an extremely difficult time keeping the hos pins on their lanyards.
I don't know what the ratio is for hos pins compared to the regular pins, but if it's that low, they should really order more pins. The only pin that should be hard to find is the chaser, all other pins should be readily available to trade. It shouldn't be a needle in a haystack to find a single hos pin. That makes this game significantly less fun. Just like all the people hoarding pins and having massive collections of duplicates. It makes trading less fun for everyone else who doesn't have that sort of money to spend on pins, because it makes it impossible to find. :/ It shouldn't be /this/ hard.
I have one too. Love it!I was cleaning out my home office and found this in the back of one of my drawers. Amazingly it's battery isn't completely dead. It used to be much brighter so I'm thinking if I got a new battery that it would work better. For those who don't remember the first year of Illuminights some TMs were given these to wear in the evening when Illuminights started.
