    I don't understand why ea did not make the Ghost bomb worth 15 billion goos. Instead of having that big jump all the way to 20 billion goos. Ghost Bomb is pretty awesome weapon to kill ghosts with though.

    20 billion seems like a rather high jump. And does this mean the King Homer building will be what .... 30 billion?!

    Once you tap on the icon for the individual prizes, there is an icon in the bottom right that switches it to the community one.

    If the skyscraper is 25 billion, at the current collection rate we should finish around Oct 28-29.

    If it's 30 billion, we should finish around Nov 2-3.

    If it's 35 billion, we won't finish until Nov 7, the last day of the event.

    If it's anything beyond 35 billion, we'll probably have to shell out donuts for the skyscraper.

    Something tells me it'll be either 30 or 35 billion needed for the skyscraper, since that'll push the event to within a few days of events end, or possibly the absolute last day (if it's 35 billion).

    Course the ghost bombs being unlocked might speed up the collection rate a bit so who knows? It could even be 40 billion.

    Really? OK, they do speed up collection, but they don't collect more. Either you get all 12, 15, 20, whatever in one shot, or you take 45 seconds to tap/vacuum them up. Either way, they all get collected. Does anyone not tap/vacuum ghosts floating around?

    How small is your town that it only takes 45 seconds? Once you've purchased all land expansions it's a different story. Even using the vacuum still takes a good 3-5 minutes, given the size of my town.

    I've also purchased one of everything in the game, donuts/limited time/etc, so not sure if it's somehow tied to that or what, but my town generates a lot of ghosts. It's much faster and easier to set off one bomb in a second or two than to spend 3-5 minutes tapping or vacuuming. My only gripe with the bombs is they should de-haunt buildings as well.

    Also, on a community basis they almost certainly collect more than tapping or vacuuming does, especially relating to casual players who may not bother tapping all ghosts, or even a majority, in their town. By setting off the bomb, it ensures they'll get every one in their town at least 5 times.

    So do everyone a favor and tone down the snark.

    I didn't get a snarky tone from his post, but maybe that is just me. I also feel that "casual" players probably either aren't collecting goo at all or have small towns and are going to pop all their ghosts either with the bomb or have a town small enough that they can vacuum them or just pop them. Regardless, I don't know how helpful the bomb will be. For large towns, I do believe it is a time saver.

    I don't understand the post about 20 million being a "big jump" to the next prize. Prize #1 = 5 billion, Prize #2 = 10 billion, Prize #3 = 13 billion, Prize #4 = 20 billion. Did the forget that from #2 to #3 it was only 3 billion. Also, I saw a picture of a hacked device that had all the prizes and the community meter was maxed out at 25 billion. That picture was a week or so and I'm sure EA can change the end total whenever they want.

    Direwolf, my thought exactly. Interesting how some people apply mathematics around here.

    I think all the prizes were initially set to 5 billion goo intervals (5, 10, 15, 20, 25). However, I think they shaved off 2 billion for the ghost bombs because they wanted to put it into our hands quicker. They realized that this "tool" is better utilized throughout the entire Hallowe'en update and not just in the latter stages.

    I suspect the final prize will be set at 25 billion.
