    unfortunately, it seems like I wont get to hit this target... I am currently about to hit 24k. However, with there still being 7 days to go, I will certainly try and get to 30k!

    Certainly has been a great event for claiming donuts, which will come in very handy in the Christmas update I am sure :)

    I have both cemeteries, 2 mausoleums, 1 wailing wall, and 100 friends I visit every day - and I only double haunt by mistake (Death to Sideshow Bob!). I knew I'd have loads of time to play and suspected my friends probably would not, so I played to accommodate them. I thought, if I only had an hour or so a day to play and had to catch up on the weekends I'd probably be less concerned with stockpiling a gazillion gremlins and more concerned with playing with all my new items, and checking out possessed characters, and all that other fun stuff. And since after only a day of playing it became apparent that it was difficult to find gremlin-free towns, I found a strategy.

    I give out gremlins when people visit my town and give me gremlins. Although, I do sometimes drop them off in a town if I'm reasonably sure they will get squished or give them to people who visit me and don't give me gremlins, generally it's an exchange - gremlins for gremlins. At the very beginning I couldn't hope to keep up the amount of gremlins I got and had to limit myself to 2 per person. But after a week or so it started to even out. So my thinking had been, if I had limited time to play I'd give priority to a town that was usually available and generally gave gremlins in exchange for getting them. My friends agreed.

    So there you go. I got a great response by making sure my gremlins got squished. Of course you can only do this if you control the time variable. :D

    (I don't want to get a bunch of "Get a life!" posts, but neither do I want to talk about my * on here, so ... TSTO helps distract from some unpleasant medical side effects. Let's leave it at that.)

    I generally get about 1500-1800 GOO per day just by visiting all my neighbors

    Whilst I applaud the effort, you should double check yer math ... since max friends is 100, and max goo per friend is 11 per day (3x double haunting = 6 goo, 5x ghosts = 5 more), then the most you can get from visiting friends is 1100 goo per day.

    I had thought of an idea but I wont do it. you could collect all goo from your 100 friends, delete your friends and add new ones and get more goo (instead of waiting 24hrs). It takes me long enough as is but sometimes I consider upgrading my friends...lol

    So close. I have 44556 goos!

    Question, I read we have to be promoted first to post a pic? Is there truth to that?
    Because I have yet to be promoted, and will reach the goal this weekend.

    How can I acquire one of those cool badges without a pic!?

    my pic you can just add to your signature line. If you want it for your avatar pic, then yes you will have to wait to be promoted.

    Perhaps I could have been more clear. I meant that I visited all my friends to get such a high number but those friend visits are in addition to what I collect from my own town (wailing wall, burial ground, mausoleums, ghosts, gremlins, haunted houses)

    Oh, but this is incorrect... you can atleast get 12 GOO from every town, provided you double haunt (something I usually don't do). You see, the last tap can still be atleast two ghosts, as long as you tap them at the same time. This isn't too hard, but you probably won't be anywhere close to manage this in a 100 towns. But I can see someone making this in atleast half of the towns they visit.

    Not that it matters too much, but I think you could add 50 more to the daily total...

    On an unrelated topic, I'm myself past 48K GOO, so I think 50K should happen with ease for my part now =)

    Plus goo from gremlins left in other towns can easily add up, too, you know.

    I wold love to say yes, but when I set up the rules, I explicitly said in one town. If more than one town counted I would be closer to 100K right now (I know, I need to get a life). You can still get to 50K in your first town

    I concur, playing this angle has been a winning strategy for me for this event. Doing 4-hour cycles and knowing your friends' play patterns can be quite profitable for all involved.

    I just got 738 from gremlins. Don't know how the hell that was possible. I am beating myself up for not screencapping it.
