Hiding Presents eheheheh

Prev1
Some I hide, some I drop in the ocean.

I like to look for them myself, and once you have the elves it is not as if any are going to waste.

    It really doesn't make any difference, I dropped gift bags in my 2 feeder towns right by the tree.
    When I logged into them, they were hidden behind buildings so I don't think it matters.

    I don't hide presents as from wacking day people hated the fact people hide eggs so I'm assuming they won't like me hiding presents. Although we do have elves to help :lol:

    No! I don't like to search my entire town for presents behind the buildings, so I will separe my neighbours that time too.

    unlike WD where it told you if you had eggs, if someone has hidden a gift bag you have no idea. So it'll probably go uncollected, so its a waste of time.

    I am not hiding any on purpose, but I swear I can't seem to get any control over them. I think I'm dropping them right next to the tree and >BAM< it's behind a building! Sorry! Unless you like looking for them, in which case I aim to please. (Har! I slay myself...)

    Ditto - I don't think we have enough control over where they go, really. That's why I've put my tree in a nice open place, so there's an option of dropping them somewhere "accessible" if my neighbours want to be nice.

    That said I do quite like finding them randomly when I'm around town... but I'd worry about missing them so I'm glad we have the elves.

    Kinda think we've got the best of both worlds here, really.

    Just because it is wrapped in a gift bag instead of a box, does not make it any less of a present! :lol:

    In case anyone hasn't seen this tip already... (I didn't think it up, just passing it on)

    If you can't find all of your presents/gift bags, and you think some might be hidden, there's a relatively easy way to find them even without elves.

    Click on the icon to move things around (the one that looks like a plus sign with arrows on each end.) Then click the icon to hide your buildings. (It's right there in the same area, ans looks like a house.) You will be able to see goodies that are behind other stuff, and pick them up and move them to where you can tap them. Exit back into normal playing mode and open them!

    :-)

    Soon everyone will have the Elf house and so there is no use hiding presents. The Elves will find them. :twisted:

    I put them out in the open, so my neighbours can see them easier. My thought for this, is hopefully, they will do the same for me, and also then they can notice it was me that dropped a present for them, and hopefully I get one back from them. :)

    I try not to but sometimes it happens. Its not like it's really that big a deal seeing how we can ghost out the buildings and then find the presents.

    That said, I get a nice chuckle each time I see a present floating in the Pacantic Ocean.

    I'm writing in my vote for option 3, "I don't hide, but don't care if you do." Ok, I know there was no option 3, but that's my vote anyway.

    the gift boxes aren't from neighbors. Only the gift bags.
