Plaques are a collection of non-member den items used to reward Jammers for certain activities. They are obtained as gifts sent from AJHQ.

Appearances

There are currently twenty different plaques. The nine original plaques consist of an identical shield-shaped wooden board with a golden emblem placed on the front that varies depending on the plaque. The four newer plaques have a dark blue-grey shield as a backing with a silver emblem on the front that varies depending on the reward.

Original Plaques

Some of these standard plaques are obtainable and can be done so through certain activities in the game and on The Daily Explorer. However, some were replaced by Diamond Plaques and are no longer obtainable. Moreover, some of the plaques have no substitute and are no longer obtainable.

Trivia

  • The Epic Den Plaque was shown in a blog post on The Daily Explorer long before it was officially released.
  • The first Epic Den Plaque den decorating competition featured in The Daily Explorer was for the Spring Cottage on May 6, 2016, with five Epic Den Plaques awarded.
    • This was followed by three more den decorating competitions:
      • "Underwater Den" on May 20, 2016, ten Epic Den Plaques awarded.
      • "Pixel Place", on June 25, 2016, five Epic Den Plaques awarded.

  • Since October 16, 2016, AJHQ has hosted further den decorating contests on an approximately weekly basis, with ten Epic Den Plaques awarded for each competition.
  • Despite the similarity of names, you do not receive an Epic Den Plaque if your den is featured on the Epic Dens list in-game.
  • Unlike the other plaque designs, the Diamond Plaques are colored in a light blue with occasional sparkles appearing around the plaque.
    • Diamond Plaques shown on The Daily Explorer are colored darker than the actual plaques in-game.
  • Currently, there are no members-only plaques.
  • When a player gets awarded the Positive Player Plaque, they receive two plaques, one for them and another to give to somebody doing something helpful or kind.

How Plaques are Distributed

  • If a member wins any of these plaques, the plaque would be sent via jam-a-gram to the player as a gift.
  • If a non-member wins any of these plaques, a pop up would display on the screen with the prize.
