    Giving gifts?

    So perhaps spAnser's other Christmas speculation thread was on the money about more than just gift giving?

    At least now we know the community gift goals ahead of time.

    Also means it won't be the currency like last Christmas. I am really hoping they don't go for a friend distribution method like Whacking Day though.

    Seems less than the Halloween prizes, which is a good thing

    Do you think we will actually have to earn it this time, or just be another automated increase?

    Here are the goal marks
    450,000,000
    1,000,000,000
    1,500,000,000
    2,000,000,000
    2,500,000,000
    Wow - we ended up with 36bill goo, yet only need to "give 2.5bill gifts"? Heck of a downgrade in #!!

    If the "counter" goes up by 2k/sec, we'll have 'em all by Xmas Day. Anything more and it'll be much earlier. :-D
    Edit: That's allowing for the usual 24hr task to kick things off too.

    Any ideas how long we'll be able to keep the update for?

    Pure guess but I'm thinking you give the gifts to your neighbors, so 3 per neighbor maybe and 300 max per day. Which is why the totals are lower than the goo where you could get 8-12 goo per neighbor and ~1000 per day

    I think Google is the process of releasing the update...
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ea.game.simpsons4_row

    Note the date it says the game was last updated.

    because that's exactly what will happen. On Dec 25th the event will just be done. Not like it will run into the new year or anything... like most events ending weeks after the actual day of the real life event.
