Ghost Bombs & Donuts

Yep, just popped one out with a bomb a few minutes ago.

    I have gotten donuts somewhere between 3-5 times when using a ghost bomb, so that is absolutely possible.

    I have used the ghost bomb a lot actually, but I'm always careful that I don't have more than 20 ghosts in my town. If I haven't logged on for awhile, due to sleep or work, and l then log on. I tap away ghosts until they stop spawning first. If I just use the bomb, the ghosts that should spawn instantly (due to suddenly having more space), for some reason don't seem to spawn... but I digress.

    Good explanation! This is a key point which I don't think many ghost bomb "complainers" understand.

    But the bomb zaps all of them waiting to spawn. I've seen it dozens of times as I use the bombs daily.

    I never seem to miss any. I've gotten fewer donuts since the bomb tool's activation, but still a few. I manage to get 2 ghost bombs per bomb used. Really wish to trade those for donuts.

    ^^^^^^ my experience exactly. If you watch the Goo counter when you hit the bomb, it jumps up a significant number & then The ones that were on screen collect after that.

    That hasn't been my experience at all. When I hit the bomb without tapping on ghosts, the counter goes up exactly 20, and no more ghosts come out to replace them.

    My hunch is that we get fewer donuts because instead we are getting bombs. Received two donuts, in the last three days, using a bomb to clear ghosts.
