    Everyone is getting ClausCo but meeeeee! If I don't get ClausCo tonight, I'll be passing 200k tomorrow. :(

    :shock:
    You have my sympathies FORK. When you started this poll, I never thought people would get anywhere close to 200,000 cards without clearing the wheel.
    At this rate, you may end up being the suckiest spinner on the loser board, which makes you a winner ..... at losing :P


    I'm starting to lose hope myself. I'm up to 174,000 cards, and still no freaking Yeti.

    I hope they never use a mechanic like this for limited time items again. It's sucked the fun out of an otherwise wonderful event.

    Ugh. I just passed 200,000 and should hit 201 in about 3.5 hours. At least I know my misery is over in 2 days.

    I am currently sitting at 222,765 gift cards and am still missing out on the freaking snow monster! No donuts spent, but WAY too much time visiting neighbors and continually sending my Springfielders on the "Hunt for the Simpsons" task.

    I finally gave up and am collecting the 50 gift bags. If I don't get the snow monster than so be it!!

    That's too bad, I know how frustrating this is. At least you're now tops on the Loserboard!

    this is just a duplicate of another holiday wheel of misfortune elsewhere, but here's an update on my dismal spinning from last week (175k and so much left to clear....)



    if the ominous EA santa claus *really* delivered better odds in a quiet update, he didn't come down my chimney. i have 281,400 gift cards right now (yeah, you read that right.) and STILL need 3 items- Helter Skelter, snow monster, and snow deity. the same 3 items i've needed since DECEMBER 29.

    it's funny... i hit ~175k last week and thought- "wow so bad... i'm almost embarrassed to post this because it's pathetic...."


    .... am i still tapping? yes. do i love/hate this game so bad? yes.


    any advice?! how did you guys all finish up the wheel?!

    yesterday I got the last item... ClausCo... with 159.000 gift cards and no donuts spent.
    The trick to get it was: first, I decided to stop spinning and simply collect coins till the last day... then (lucky me) they have changed the odds (I had 40 coins at that time)... then I have waited till 50 coins and finally with no wheel positioning, no clock or counter clock idea, simply asking to my girlfriend to split the spins one each, after only 5 spins SHE got it :-)
    Just in time to complete the rest of the xmas history...

    now I have 46 coins sitting there, but I am not interested in 46.000 credits (and potentially more) so I won't loose my time in further spinning...

    WOW. Even with better odds, some unlucky person is going to get the wrong end of the bell curve. Too bad you're seeing it. I hope they give you some kind of consolation prize.

    After reading some of the posts I now don't consider my situation not to be that bad.

    My other user name (jules210264) has become my main town and now just over 100K in GC and still got to get the Yeti and Claus Co but was waiting to update my game this morning to give myself a few more spins in a vain attempt to bag them both, but the damn game is down.

    Hated the wheel since the off, never seemed to be able to get the hang of it so couldn't even try to experiment properly and the annoyance is that 3 times I landed on a premium item inc the ones needed I wasn't given them, a known issue I think.

    Roll on the update.

    I up to 175k now and still no claus co!

    Interestingly tho i've not had this update people are talking about which may have improved the odds so I'm just wondering if I should uninstall and reinstall the game to see if that helps!

    Knowing the slim odds of getting Helter Shelter, my last prize, I had saved up 150 tokens (yes, 150), before I spun them consecutively. I used up over 100 before I won it. I now have 48 tokens left and am at about 188K in gift cards.

    I don't think I would have had the patience to save up to 150 tokens if it weren't for the hopes of getting the stocking deal like last year.

    OMG I'm so HAPPY!!!! I finally cleared the wheel at 167054 gift cards. I was thinking I wouldn't get Claus Co. Only hours left before the event would end. Collected another token from Flanders and Bart. Gave it a shot and it landed on Claus Co. BINNNGGGGOOOOO!!!! Never played any TSTO special event till the very end and this was ridiculous.

    Agreed. My head hurts from all the 'OMG it's nearly there!' stress. Bleah... >.<

    Yeah, I know it's just a glorified mystery box, but seeing my Helter Shelter spin around still pumps up the adrenaline. I tried to not look at the wheel whilst it was spinning, but couldn't stop myself. And so now I have a headache. At least I cleared it though...

    89,000 to clear the wheel. The Yeti was the last item and got him on Friday. If it wasn't for the extension I would have never gotten him.

    I'm happy to see I'm still number 14!! But I might keep getting better… 143K and still miss the Yeti! It would be great if they have what's remaining on the wheel for donuts when it's over. It sucks I'm gonna miss a limited character...

    That's enough to move up a couple spots. At least you don't have it as bad as goldfly, 281k and still missing 3 prizes. Ouch.

    Yes, that's true!! Wow, I can't even imagine how you can reach 281K… and 3 missing prizes, it's worse than bad luck at this point!
