Chocobo Hot & Cold is a game that can be played with chocobos you own. The game is played by digging with your chocobo in special areas to find items that are buried in the ground.
The areas that you can play Hot & Cold are run by Mene, who will help you start playing. Once you have started playing, you can 'dig' with your chocobo, which will let you know if you are close to an item buried in the ground. The enthusiasm of the chocobo will tell you how close you are to the item.
Once you find the location of an item, you must dig enough to excavate it. Each dig will excavate the item somewhat, and the remaining depth will be displayed.
Each time you dig with a chocobo, some of its stamina will be depleted. If your chocobo has no stamina remaining, you will need to let it recover. Stamina recovery occurs naturally over time.
As you excavate items, you may come across some mysterious Chocographs. These ancient artifacts will show the way to buried treasure, if you can decipher their meaning. You may also find pieces of Chocographs, which may be re-assembled if you collect enough of them.
After completing the mission 'Not Too Hot, Not Too Cold', players may practice playing Hot & Cold in the field located in the chocobo ranch; No stamina is used playing there, but no special rewards or experience will be found from playing there.
Note that all information, including chocograph locations, rewards, items found in areas, etc. is freely allowed to be discussed with other players.
