    I think I will stop playing until they update the game, I am just sooooooooooo sick of it. It's a game I should enjoy my game...

    This is definitely one of the least enjoyable events that EA has put out. I have won everything on the wheel a long time ago and I've already asked my neighbors to not drop bags. While I still think that the prizes doing this Christmas event have been the best of any event so far, motivation (donuts) are not there to continue playing after the wheel is cleared.

    I agree. I also hate kl. Got 5 stars & have everything. But hardly go there. Crashes when I do & it's boring as ** *

    Well I just bought 10 spin tokens and guess what? I won money 10 times. Still have the 2 buildings and the bumble. Its been this way since the 23rd of Dec. for me. This wheel of frustration is the worst thing ea has done to this game. DO SOMETHING EA! Fix the Freaking wheel!

    I've needed Helter Shelter only for a while now. Land on $ every time. I've just accepted I probably won't get it. Was pissed for a while, but whatever at this point.

    Tbh their hasn't another game that has kept my attention consistently for so long. The wheel has been good to, but also understand its been **** for others.

    I played in krusty land for the first few weeks and I haven't been in it since. I haven't even bothered with the last few new rides we got :lol:

    Completely agree. I now have 70 extra coins that I can't give away and I'm not wasting them on the wheel in the off-chance that we can trade them for something better than $1000. If not for that, I wouldn't be visiting friends as often since it's not quick to visit 100 towns. The Halloween donuts were an amazing incentive to play until the last second, too bad EA didn't realize the success of that.

    Would be nice to be able to gift items, such as spin tokens to neighbors who need them. I currently have 83 spin tokens and cleared the wheel long ago.

    Wow. This thread has been up for almost a whole hour, and we haven't had one post yet with someone calling us whiners.

    If I had a nickel for every time someone whined about whining, I'd be rich. They just don't see the irony in their own whining, I suppose.

    The wheel was the worst idea ever. I have everything on it, and feel miserable that so many stalwart longtime players are getting shafted. :(

    Let me be honest, Xmas is a busy family time for me, so I knew I would not have a lot of free time to play...that's my problem, not theirs and I am fine with it. BUT if I play, I need to be enjoying the game and that stupid idea of a wheel is ruining the little fun I could have. What a stupid idea, in theory you could spin it and never win the last big prices since every time you spin it the odd are the same. I still have one item to win, over 80 thousand cards collected and I wish so much that they would have not added a week to the event. As frustrating it is not to have won all the big items, continuing to spin the wheel without winning is even worst... Please put me out of my misery and end this event, remove the snow (it is cold enough outside anyway) give us a new level and please let us enjoy this game again AND NO MORE WHEEL EVER!

    Who are you kidding? You'll never stop playing. And neither will any of us.

    I loved the wheel. I don't spend real money on this game. I grinded out 100 friend visits a day until I got everything and was very pleased with the results. The being a free player is relevant because if it wasn't for the wheel, all of these items would have been donut items. I had the lights from last year, but helter shelter would be 100 donuts, clausco probably 130, snow monster 50, ice god 100, all the snowmen I would say 150 for all. So that's about 600 donuts worth of content that most people got for free. For those that spent 500 donuts on spins to get everything, still cheaper then all sold separately. The only people I feel bad for, the players that would happily pay full price for everything but haven't been able to get everything from the wheel yet as I assume they have already dumped several hundred donuts into spins.

    OK might be true, but I am honestly not playing until the 14th, because my Ipad is at risk... :wink:

    Did not think I was whining but the wheel... it is ruining it for me. And all the gift bags in my town makes the wheel hard to ignore. I was very happy to see the event finish on the 7th until I realized the event was until the 14th...

    Did you ever think of simply not using the wheel instead of claiming to be miserable and complaining about it?

    If there was no wheel you wouldn't be using it, so why not just not use it?

    I can't believe that I have 168,715 cards, still missing the Clausco. So to end the torture I decided to purchase coins tonight, 40 of them. Guess what ? I did not get the Clausco, even after that.

    I agree with the OP, this is not fun at all, and since a few weeks it is getting worst.
