    Awesome schedule! Thanks for going to the effort of figuring it out and sharing it.
    It'll sure save me some "wondering" about what's next. At least I now know there are a few days I simply won't be able to complete.

    I'm sure there's loads more than just me who will find this incredibly useful! We'll done indeed!

    And don't forget, if you know it's a bad day coming up and want to do more than just one of the previous days tasks (if your time allows that between #1 resetting and parchment unlocking) you can always try and do a couple by setting them any time you randomly wake up to use the toilet or something. That's what I do and yesterday I got 3 2hr tasks as my first ones rather than the 4-6-6! :)

    Addicted for sure :!: :)

    And may become addicted to donuts too. Fremium since starting 6 months ago, but Father's day gift was donuts! As in "(Homer) Mmmm, premium currency."

    Love your name, DamnedDonuts!

    Good points. My schedule is just one way to do it even for my reset times. For me, that short 3 hr window before the next day's hours kicks in, limits my flexibility just a little.

    I don't chance it. I set an alarm! Many, many, alarms. :lol:

    Yeah man, started freemium(for about 3 days, if that) then $20 dollars worth, then the $100 dollar deals ever since.

    I save by getting itunes cards when they are on sale and then holding back til Gil comes around with one of his deals.

    Changed to that name lil under a yr ago I think.

    I hope you have your priorities straight and NEVER neglect the game. Sleep, work, friends, sure leave them hanging but NEVER the game. 8) :lol: 8)

    Not sure I follow completely. How can you start at 9AM and finish 20 hours of tasks by 11?

    Because on those days I'm starting the remaining of the tasks at 9am (at the latest) and already started task one at 12:01 am.

    No offense, but this is just silly. You don't need to follow any schedule. If you have enough good neighbors, it's not necessary to complete all of Number 1's tasks to complete the event. I've missed completing his tasks half of the days so far and am at 17,000 emblems.

    Alarms? For a couple hundred emblems? Yeah, no thanks ;-)

    Our goals are obviously different! That's the great thing about this event; people can set themselves different goals based on what they want to achieve, how hard they want to play etc. And I agree that it should be very easy to get 35,000 emblems without doing all the tasks.

    I want the prize, *after* the 35,000. And I just like the challenge.

    Haha my boyfriend would kill me if I did that, unfortunately he's not a player like your wife is! :wink:

    But yes having 8 hours (1am - 9am) to do any tasks before the new day kicks in is pretty lucky, as I probably get up 3 times in the night for the toilet :lol:

    I have 24,500 emblems so I don't NEED the task emblems, but the more you get - the more donuts you win after! :wink:

    My wife and I have the same goals.

    Remember the episode when Bart drank all the water to get up early? That's what I thought of when you mentioned it.

    Regarding the *cough*donuts*cough*....
    Shut up! It's a secret. Oh yeah, this is a spoiler thread. :wink:

    I suppose I would set alarms for a shot at 3 donuts - I don't sleep much anyway, so maybe it's not so silly after all :)

    Do keep in mind that donuts cost anywhere from 4 to 10 cents apiece, depending on how many you buy
