    Like most everyone else I think they royally suck! I assumed that being in the gold box they would be a premium item with a multiplier but no what a gyp!

    I like them. Wish they were purchasable. I want enough to go round my candy fireworks and puppy store

    I use them also for the Candy, Fireworks and Puppy Store. But only 2 fences... And in a gold box.
    That's the strange thing... :thumbdown:

    Yeah, why 2? You get 3 easter fences out of a pink or blue box.
    Because EA thought it would be cool to hire "special" people to choose what kinda prizes we get and how we get them.

    This, exactly.

    If they're giving away 3 Easter fences in the pink and blue boxes, you'd think they'd give MORE fences in the hard-to-get gold boxes. They certainly didn't think this one through!!!

    But that said, I do like them. Just not enough to waste a gold box on... unless there were more fences per box.

    Visuals aside because I think the animations have been really good, I think EA were drunk when they designed this whole event.

    I would think those little egg piles would be the worst prize. Do those things do anything at all, they are nearly the only prize I seem to win in the Easter boxes.

    I have won 16 egg piles and 13 easter ponds. If this event is over, I should rename my Springfield in Easterfield. :roll:

    Egg piles suck the most and I've got 4of em :(. Pastel fences are okay. And there have to be lesser prizes so could be worse .also now up to 23 fences and no Blocko store!!!

    Seems like it's not so much that the fences stink, it's that putting them in the gold box was a terrible mistake. It should have been the pink and white fences in the pink box and the pastel fences in the blue box, and no fences in the gold box. (Better yet, just sell them for in game cash, but since they decided to put them the boxes, they should have done it this way.) Also, both of them should have come in sets of four or five, instead if two or three at a time.

    I thought this, too, that the Pastel and Easter fences should have been split between the pink and blue boxes, instead. :thumbup:

    I think if the Blocko, and Johnny Fiesta were in the gold boxes, the chances of getting them would be worst. Most people who have them now wouldn't. With all games of chance theres always a great prize and a not so great prize. I don't know of any game were all you get are great prizes. The fact that you get so few chances at gold boxes, if all the good prizes were in them, that would IMO, be horrible. I think the odds of getting something good would be worse, because once you get a prize it would still be replaced with a lesser prize and the odds of getting a good prize would probably be harder.

    It's suppose to be fun, but it seems like people are just picking this event to pieces because, they can't get everything easily. I've gotten fences, and eggs, from the gold boxes, so i build up my eggs and try my luck next time. It's gambling you don't always win.

    The only thing worse than getting pastel fences is getting 250 common eggs from a gold box. I almost threw my phone accross the room when that happened to me today.

    I agree, that is a crappy prize. When I got it, it made me feel like I do when I get my mystery box with my billionth tree or parking lot. Or when I got the crappy "premium" dumpster from the homer buddha. It's such a letdown

    I personally would rather have the pastel fences than the easter gates. Cant do much with them cept put them in fences and you can only put so many in along with the fences before it looks bad :-)
