    I know that if you tag someone who has a purple piece, then you can get it from them.

    Aside from that, I have no clue how to get the purple pieces.

    Does anyone know? If I remember correctly, you can also get them from SpotPass, right?

    I find this completely false though, because I have never recieved a piece from SpotPass...

    Aside from when they introduced a new board given to you, and they give you one piece to start off with...

    Actually, while playing Mario Kart one time, I recieved TWO purple pieces. Once, it was in the GBAtemp races, the second time in public. I'm not really sure though.

    So... my only chance of getting A pink piece, is if it's the first piece I get when I get a new board...

    Thanks, Nintendo, for making this whole PuzzleSwap idea fun, but also impossible to finish...

    I know that... but the problem is that, let's just say, I don't have a very good mobility to go around and tag people all the time... (Unless I wait another year to get my liscence!)

    I just wish they would have a server, or something, that, daily, if not, weekly, gives one pink piece through SpotPass...

    I wish that the free piece they give you was guaranteed to be pink. I got all of 4 pink pieces while I was at New Orleans Comic Con.

    This morning I turned on my 3DS and found my Streetpass Mii Plaza had spotpass data, it made a big deal about giving me a puzzle piece for a Kid Icarus Uprising puzzle.
    Not a pink piece though, just regular.

    I've never received any pieces through spotpass before, even with the number of hours I've spent playing Mario kart online, although not in a community, hmm.

    Video game parties are the main source of pink parts, you should try like Pong said.

    This is true even here in Brazil, where we have very few 3DS players.

    (by the way, I have about ten pink parts and I usually go out without my 3DS)

    "All of X" is an English phrase meaning you're disappointed with a low number.

    i agree wholeheartedly, i think nintendo thinks that everyone lives in a busy city like tokyo or something, it's hard to get streetpasses, let alone spotpasses, i only get around maximum 3 streetpasses a week and i hardly play online on my 3ds anyway.

    But, you see, I live in Connecticut, USA. The only events that get hosted here, are (sometimes) PAX, and Conneticon...
    And like I said earlier, I'm not old enough to go driving around places... so I'm kinda screwed...

    Pink piecs in Puzzle swap can only be recieved with via StreetPass that mean you cannot get pink pieces with PlayCoins.

    I have these panels

    the legend of zelda-completed
    super mario bros wii-completed
    donkey kong country returns- uncompleted (not even halfway!)

    well to be fair, the empty spots are purple, you don't see they're pink until you actually get one


    In Japan they got Iwata as a Spotpass and he had all the puzzles completed. That was for Japan's one year anniversary of the 3DS. I wonder if they'll do the same for North America next month as well. (Probably with Reggie)
