Winter gacha season is almost upon us, and The Arcade, one of the most popular fashion and decor events in SL, will be opening its doors once again this Sunday. For the uninitiated, gacha machines are like a lucky dip where you pay a very low price (usually less than L$100) for a random chance at any of the items inside, including rare ones.
Gacha events are fun year-round, but they're particularly great around the holidays. They make great places to pick up gifts for friends and family in the metaverse because, with a few rare exceptions, most gacha items are transferable. This is so that you can swap or sell the random gachas you may get but don't want to keep, but this also means that gifting them is easy as pumpkin pie. It doesn't hurt that many of the items in this upcoming round are quite festively themed, including the holiday decor set from Apple Fall pictured above.
One more thing: If you decide to drop by during the hectic early hours of this wildly popular event, don't go in unprepared. You can plan you gacha shopping spree in advance using The Arcade's official December 2013 shopping guide.
