how necessary is it?

Prev1
Improves your star rating by visiting and tapping in neighbours towns. Plus when the events kick in such as whacking day having friends helps speed up collecting what you need. I.e. snakes during whacking day

    you will want lots of friends during events.
    would have almost been impossible to complete whacking day without 100 friends unless you want to spend donuts

    You are going to need them when they have events like Halloween, Christmas, Valentina's Day, and Wacking Day. Otherwise you'll miss out on getting certain things in the game. Or you can get them, but your really going to be struggling to do it.

    And like Jennifer said, you have neighbors and when you visit them, you get to see what they have done in their towns. Some inspire me, some awe me! :D

    Hey Jennifer! Been enjoying watching your renovations! :D

    ok, what's a good number to have? i've heard it can slow the game down if you have too many.

    and what's the best way to get quality friends? id prefer quality over quantity.

    I had 10 during WD and only one left me 12 eggs, I only had the coliseum and sleep lazy left to get when it ended.. Eventually got donuts for them after the fact.

    yea true it was extended and because of that i was able to get all the whack boxes as well without spending any donuts.
    i actually got 10 donuts from the whack boxes.

    beyond the 12,500 snakes (i think) for miss springfield. there was a prize box every 1000 (never got there... so may be wrong) with the chance of winning cash or donuts. most seemed to get cash (lcrappy750)

    anyhu, generally that^ details may be wrong

    really are you serious
    after you got all the whacking day prizes there were 10 whack box bonuses that you got for continuing to collect snakes
    some had $750, $1000, 1 Donut, 2 Donuts and maybe 3 Donuts but i don't remember if 3 was an option or not

    I now have about 12 friends, 12 is a good number to regularly keep up with daily visits. when a big event comes round there will be plenty of add me threads to quickly make up to 100 if necessary

    Right now I have almost 70. I like to keep it around that number because that's about how many I can get around to visiting. I'm slowly replacing random friends with people I get to know on this forum.

    If you want to do that, always ask by pm if they want to be friends, instead of sending a random friends request. Your more likely to be accepted. Sending random friend requests is sort of frowned upon. I find having friends I know before an event is most helpful. Plus you'll see who's in it for the long haul. Some people on "add me threads" stop playing after awhile. Plus if you know someone is on the forum, you can always pm them with a question or comment.
