Pretty fun although, like Fencers, I preferred GW1's version of the holidays (but I suspect that has to do with how the game is made). With all of the mini games in this event and the Halloween event it begs the question on why aren't there mini games put in place in the cities?
not sure to be honest, they seem to be planed but not in. It looks like there is soposed to be a shooting galery mini game in DR but the NPC for it says there is currently a private party going on and check back later. More than likely the extra city mini games got cut for development time reasons and ATM the holiday games took priority. We've got a bit of time till the next major holiday so maybe mini games will get a bit of developer love between now and then.
