    86k gift cards and still need yeti, Claus co, and plow king (no intention of buying Barney). I'm kind of thinking there's a really good chance I won't get any more prizes by the end, and I'm tired of spending time collecting gift cards. Not sure if I will give it my all until the update or just spin what I get until the end. I would like to have the prizes, but at least I have mr. Plow.

    I wonder if we will be given another chance to get these items next christmas? I did like the wheel overall, but it's a little disheartening to see so many people who have cleared the wheel with 1/3 of the cards I have. That's odds for you! My son was a brand new player (like under level 10) and spun the yeti first try, so I realize it's just my bad luck!

    I've been saving mine up for the last few days so I take all my spins at once between my two Springfields.

    With about 6 each day per SF, I spun about 35-40 times total. Figures are approx.

    Gold card - 2
    Silver card - 1
    Bronze card - 5
    Cash - 25ish
    Snow dog - 1

    Grrr

    Not unlucky any more: at 156,000 gift cards, spinning 26 times in a row and getting squat, I decided to buy some tokens. On my fourth spin I got Claus Co and now I have extra tokens. I am not complaining though, I could have just waited a couple of days but I needed my life back :wink: (Which I then spend on this forum :shock: )

    I have spun everyday and yet to get yeti probably won't get him before the event ends :/ I've gotten mostly snowmen ,money, and Christmas people' s houses.... Which is a waste because I don't even have some of the houses!

    My big decision will be whether to finish the remainder of the quests, or to continue sending Springfielders to hunt the Simpsons until the very end.

    That's the decision I just made too. At well over 100k gift cards and taking 12 spins in a row to get cash, I decided to move on with the quests. I have been down to just the shelter for 2 weeks. I'm tired of the constant search of the Simpsons. Either I'll be lucky enough to finally land on it, or it will be the first event I don't complete.

    I love your sig pic

    I finally let Homer and Lisa out of the treehouse. But only for the 10 donuts. Just passed 90k cards and only need Helter Shelter - but seeing as I haven't seen the episode it's from it won't be a big disappointment to me if I don't get it. Still trying though.

    Hmm, seems like Helter Shelter is the last one many of you need too. It's my last item, and I'm reaching 90k tickets tonight. I'd much rather have the Ice God be the last item on my wheel, despite the shelter being not a memorable building from the show, I much prefer more buildings to populate the town for more variety.

    If I do the math right, I need to allot 24 hours for Homer & Lisa in the tree, 12 more hours for Lisa, then make sure to have 50 gift boxes (36 hours total - minimum) then the quest is done? I want to run the "Hunt the Simpsons" ticket fest up to the last possible minute if I haven't got the shelter by then. When does the event end on Jan 7th? like 11:59pm on the 6th?

    I haven't bothered to complete the Mr Plow, Plow King, Ebeneezer Burns, etc quests til after Jan 7th, those will still remain, right?

    It's kinda hard to tell, tried to get a screen shot before the winning prize popped up, but landed on yeti & helter shelter instead got cash. The pointer flipped over to cash both times AFTER distributing the prize. I try to keep positive since a free game and all but that was pretty frustrating.

    I think I'm close to 70,000 GC's and I'm missing Claus Co. and Helter Shelter...Not Givin' up though. Hey EA, if you give me the Shelter I'll buy one of your trash can fires to decorate it...seems fair.
