    woot, woot!

    I'm game for the corn friend's bandwagon. After Xmas ends of course.

    Trying to come up with a name for my corn. But all I can come up with is "finally popped my corn cherry" and is that rude? I've been playing for over a year and I have never grown corn before. It never seemed logical. But I am liking the not having to check my farm every damn day.

    I grew corn once, drove me nuts when a planting task came up. I had to stare at that uncompleted moonshine task for like 9 weeks.

    I have 7 days 17 hours to go! So close yet so far.

    Surprisingly, I am 82+ days in and haven't received a single crop task yet.

    On the day my corn is ready I will probably spend at least a few hours convincing the friends I have who play this to tap it as much as possible.

    Happy harvesting!

    Life changing!

    I couldn't wait, so I spent 2 donuts to finish early in my final hours. Best 2 donuts ever spent!

    I'm sorry but the title of this thread is really irritating.

    THERE. I had to get that out of my system.

    I took a peek & gave Witch Marge the night off.


    75 days to go!

    Let us know if Witch Marge helps (if you put her back to work). I've discovered what a lot of people who grew Christmas corn found out - Marge only works twice on any crop. 8 hours off of a 90 day task doesn't do much.
    I'll give her a week off and try again. :idea:


    Ok so today I put her back to speeding crops. She definitely shaved 4 hours off the first time. I'm waiting for her to be done with the second round. So she definitely speeds up crops once a day waiting to see results on twice. I might send her to do a one hour task after then bring her back to see if it works when the tasks are spaced out

    A few of the people doing Christmas corn said they did just that, sent her on another task and then brought her back with some success. It might just have been that by the time they got her back on crop duty it was the next day. Once a day would be a big help. I'm pretty sure that LandofComedy was never able to get her to work more than the once or twice.

    PS I suspect we are having the same conversation that this Christmas corn group had but it's buried so far back I'm having trouble finding it.


    Yup there were multiple threads on it and mine included plus the horrible response from EA thread I made. It has never got resolved and switching to other task only worked once, atleast for me, other people claimed it never worked. Even though I still keep witch Marge on that task all the time wishing that one day it gets fixed, it still hasn't and continues to go back to original time when it's done. So no it's still doesn't work. Only works once the very first time you put her on the corn task. :roll: :roll:

    @Chippers29775

    I guess you can add me to the pre-season corn growers list since I started since Thanksgiving time, even though I told myself I would never grow it, but nothing left in the game to do and just let it growing. Only did it to take advantage of the corn glitch/easter egg even though I don't need the money from it, I have over millions. But the xp might be good. :mrgreen: I have 29 days and about 19 hrs left. I guess I'll get my left over turkey corn. :D

    I didn't put Witch Marge on task to speed up crops until I got closer to being harvested and could watch it to the hour, she did not speed up my crop.

    Chippers29775, I finally have a name for my corn, fitting for planting corn in January during our recent deep freeze in the upper midwest.

    Polar Vortex Corn!

    Has anyone tried using Witch Marge more than once on Triffids or Moonshine?

    Ha, everyone here is on corn! Otherwise we could try it out. :D

    Even if it did work for those shorter ones, it's pretty clear it doesn't for corn. I was excited because it really appeared that it worked for mine, but after reading these threads, I took to writing down the date/time and remaining time for my corn a few times. It was pretty obvious that having Marge speed it up 3-4 times made no difference in the elapsed time. Oh well, will have to be patient!

    I also wrote down date/time a few times when experimenting with Witch Marge on the corn task and, like LandofComedy, it only worked the first time I tried it. If it can be shown that it only works once per task (as opposed to once every 4 hours), then it's not a bug. It's the way it was designed to work.

    Hi all, not a forum regular but so happy to finally get my Claus Co after 115,000 gift cards I decided to pop in here to celebrate.

    I started my corn for the first time just before Christmas - 60 days to go as I type. I read all those "hints" about how to get a gazillion donuts or unlimited money - but I also sometimes believe a Nigerian Prince really does want $1m to rest in my account.

    Honestly I never tired it but but based on someone else on this forum, I forgot who, but they said it worked several times on their moonshine. So I took their word for it and I had my corn up so I couldn't really test it. I for a while thought it was originally to work once like you said and not a bug but since people said it worked more then once on other crops except the corn is when I started to try on the corn and it failed that is when i started thinking it was a bug. But if someone could test it, that would clear up a lot of things, for now.

    Thanks Land0fComedy and madfish86 for confirming what I had thought had been written in the previous threads. I saw L0C was still trying to use Marge so was hoping something had changed. :(
