100 boxes opened!

Just made it to 100 boxes opened! 15 gold. That's it for me. That's a lot of tapping lol Missed 3 gold prizes, oh well. I'm relieved it's over 8)

Don't say it's over 'til it's over! Ha.

I opened at least 101 boxes (38 pink, 46 blue, and 17 gold), and I'm missing Egg Council Guy, Shari Bobbins, Hugs Bunny, and the Kodos topiary (yet I got THREE Kang topiaries)... so I'd have to say I didn't have the best luck. 100 boxes is a LOT.

I have deeply contemplated buying gold eggs, as I'd be guaranteed Hugs Bunny and Shari within about 300 donuts, but I am just so sick with EA that I don't want to. I don't care about those characters THAT much. I'd probably rather buy something that's always available that's way cooler.

I want the Easter event as we've known it to be over, but I really hope that there is some way for everyone to obtain all the characters/buildings they missed. I think a prize/egg trade would be good. I don't want all 9 of my ponds, etc., so I'd much rather trade those for the better prizes I couldn't get. Otherwise, I'm hoping they put up the prizes for sale with donuts, WITHOUT inflating the price. If the prices were to be really high for Shari and other good prizes, I still wouldn't buy them.

    how can you tell how many boxes your opened? do you keep count? or can you see it somewhere?

    i'm curious as to see how "stupid" i got at the end to get the final couple of prizes... :oops:

    Yep, if you're around the 20 gold boxes-opened-point, it could take 300+a bit donuts spent on gold eggs to guarantee Shary and Hugs (only up to 150 donuts for Father Sean, though, since he's guaranteed on the 50th gold box). But, if you're lucky, it could be less. I guess it depends on how much you want them.

    I've been keeping track in another thread. Every time I opened boxes I would edit my post

    I wish I had thought of that, especially because I bought 4 truckloads and a few crates of the eggs. It would be useful to know how close I am. I feel like I've opened a lot, but in reality it's probably nowhere near 80 (the # I need to get Shary/Hugs). Have you been playing consistently throughout the event to arrive at those numbers? Or did you play infrequently? Did you buy any of the eggs? I'm trying to gauge what we be considered a good amount of total boxes.

    I was lucky enough to get father Sean in one of my first gold boxes, and it is so hard for me to know what I want to do. Could I get lucky and get Shari without spending 300 donuts? Maybe. But I just don't think it's worth the gamble. I've spent no donuts on eggs. Besides, I think half the reason I want her so bad is because she is so hard to get! Hehe.. People always want most what they can't have. :wink: Sounds creepy.. I'm a married woman! :lol:

    I play A Lot (every 4 hrs at least) but I didn't spend any donuts. I had a lot of baskets but I did give away a lot when I was trying to clear my uncommon color.
