    Well, maybe they will do something like this, or they may also use the same process for another event.

    If we have gremlins next year, I can't see them giving us a counter. I think it's kind of the point that you don't know how many there are in your town. If you did, it would be a lot harder for the person dropping them in you town to get to the 4 hour mark and receive the 4 goo.

    The way I got around this is using a second Springfield. (I don't actually have a "feeder" town, but I have been playing my friend's game while he is not able to.) I keep a balance of at least 10 gremlins in his town. When I want to know how many are in my Springfield, I visit my town from his and look to see how many I can drop. "Oh, I can only drop 9, there must be a gremlin running around my town."

    I agree that there were too many ghost bombs. Or maybe I just didn't use them enough. I think I've still got like 80+ left. Now I'm just using them to kill 1 or 2 ghosts when I drop into my town through out the day. What I would really have liked, is to have the tool go back to the one you had selected before selecting the bomb. I usually leave it on the vacuum tool and when I use a bomb, it switches back to the popping tool. I keep pressing my screen expecting the vacuum to start, meanwhile the ghosts are scattering.

    Same here, very odd. Just a flat out, NO.

    They (if something like gremlins is in next years event) need to make it so you can go into a special mode to kill gremlins, much like wacking day, because it really pissed me of how I would try to pop a gremlin but tap a character instead and then the gremlin would get away...

    Next year we'll probably have to slay hordes of vampires and have a stake tool which we would use to hammer in to their hearts so they perish in to oblivion, and we have to prevent our citizens from being bitten, if they got bitten, just sprinkle them with a 'Holy water' tool.
