If I don't update, can I still collect cards/coins/play the wheel?

give it a shot and let us know.

    I was able to play just a few minutes ago and have not updated yet. I collected gift cards and got a spin token but did not spin. Also, the update hadn't appeared on the appstore yet for me though for some reason......

    Unless you're still playing pt 18 of the Christmas quests, your neighbors were the primary source of gift cards.

    I haven't updated yet and can verify you can still spin the wheel and collect prizes.

    You can until they make you update. Eventually, you will get a message about needing the newest version of the game. Or that's how it worked for Whacking Day. Not sure about Halloween. I was done with Halloween in all my towns so I updated as soon as I could.

    I spent all 45 of my spin tokens before I updated so I think its very possible. :D
    You wont be able to do much with friends, but you can still spin the wheel if you have leftover tokens.

    I can't visit neighbors that have updated, so collecting coins is going to be difficult. Does the neighbor exploit (the one used to get extra Squidport tiles) work on the egg nog bar to generate extra coins? If so, maybe some of us still lacking wheel items could group together in a last ditch effort to help each other finish it off.

    At the moment, yeah you can. We'll probably be forced to update sometime this week though.. I'm 300 cards away from my next token, so I'm going to play until I get it (tonight, hopefully) and call it

    But for now, yes, you can still collect cards. However, you can't visit any neighbors who have updated until you update, so that might hinder your collection.

    I don't dare to update after all I've read here about login problems or wrong towns/reset towns after updating. Hope this issue will be resolved soon. Until then (or as long as EA lets me) I will stay in Xmas mode...

    No it doesn't.

    Agreed and with no new content, why risk it unless you're really sick of the snow?

    Think I'll let Homer, Lisa and the Flanders' enjoy the snow a little more.

    My ipad forced update. My iPhone forced update.

    My boy's ipod stayed in Xmas mode so I got him some more spin tokens and used them.

    I logged him out and tried logging my account in so I could spend my 45 spin tokens, but it recognised my account had updated on another device and forced his ipod to update.

    I managed to scrape up enough gift cards for one more token and cleared the wheel! Kind of odd clearing it on "borrowed time" though.

    Lucky you. I managed to get enough for one more spin and got another $1000. No Claus co for me. Bummer. I even used all the donuts I'd been saving over the past year.
