The fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia and let me be the first to say, that’s a friggin’ hard word to spell, let alone pronounce. Much like the last name of Empire Avenue CEO and semi-professional couch surfing champion Duleepa “Dups’ Wijayawardhana (e)DUPS.
Now, in most parts of the world, Friday the 13th is synonymous with bad luck or that one movie where those teenagers definitely kill that dude wearing the mask (Awesome flick. Somebody should make a sequel.) However, on Empire Avenue, Friday the 13th means only one thing — Secret Achievement time!

Upon unlocking the first reward, “THE JACKPOT” you receive 72,000 Eaves. Yes, that’s right — 72,000 Eaves! Apparently, the Empire Avenue Crew was feeling quite generous (or perhaps had a long coding night while under the influence of some adult libations).
