Time to give up!

Same here, 122k cards, not going to get the Yeti. I have landed on it twice, but was awarded money instead!
Game was rigged from the start, not spending donuts for extra spins!

    You have 6 days left, if you're going to give up, wait till the 5th or something. A few more days aren't going to make any difference, but you'll have more chance at getting what you want.

    Don't give up! I was at 97K gift cards and was still chasing Claus Co, Ice God and the Yeti. After a week of multiple spinning and getting just cash and gift cards, I finally got Claus Co and Ice God after the New Year. I thought there was no hope. I still want the Yeti!

    I thought about giving up and i decided that instead of giving up getting the helter shelter,
    that I would give up on giving up and hope that i get it :-)

    I'll give it another 5 days and 16 or so hours..but not one more hour after that!
    If i havent caught it by then, I'll stop hunting the Simpsons and just think it wasnt meant to be :mrgreen:

    Really, if you would play the game anyway just keep trying. If you would not normally play, I can see the frustration, but most play daily anyway. At least get the egg nog coin and spin once.

    my problem is homer is tied up in the tree house so unless i click him and give up on this searching for him then I wont be able to do the new years task! Can you still do the new years task if I wait until the 6th to start that or is there a certain time I need to have started that by to get the 10 doughnuts?

    What about Lisa? Is she in the tree house as well?
    If she is, then its too late. If she isnt, then you are free to rescue homer from the tree house.

    I never put homer up there for this very reason..I didnt want to have to make a choice between chasing the simpsons and having to cut it short for possible donuts.

    I clicked him in by accident and didnt even noticed i'd done it and yeah lisa is there aswell!!

    When do we need to start the new year tasks by to make sure we get our 10 doughnuts??

    I know how you feel. I have just gotten 156k gift cards, spun 26 times in a row without getting Claus Co. Disheartened, I decided to buy some tokens and with the bad luck I had had so far, decided to get 20. I now have 16 tokens left because I got Claus Co on my fourth spin. Now, I am not complaining, because I finally got what I had tried to get over the past two weeks. And yes, had I not been "impatient", I might have gotten it for free, but then, I got myself two boatloads of donuts during the sale and decided that the building is well worth the 100 donuts it sort of cost me.

    I had about given up, and figured what would be would be....got my coin today for 91k gift cards and that one spin landed on Claus co. I'm going to stop searching for Simpsons and if I get yeti and plow king fine, but if not, it's fine too. It stopped being fun, and it's just a game after all!

    Can you remove the tree house? Won't that quit Lisa and homer from the task without completing it?

    I think I read from someone else's post that storing the treehouse will just trigger the quest to complete.

    You can still get 3k a day from visiting even if you end the task.

    Clausco is hands down the best item on the wheel. The yeti is worth giving up on. The skyscraper you will be jonesing for every time you visit neighbors, even a year from now if you're still playing.

    If the thumbs up is not showing, storing the treehouse would cancel the task. If it is showing, storing the treehouse will complete the task.


    I don't know for sure if the donut tasks need to be completed today, but I wouldn't want to risk it. There are still a lot of tokens to be earned by visiting neighbors every day, and it's ten fee donuts!
