    This is a good brain exercise, right!

    Since I'm not a completionist I decided to play and enjoy as much as I can - no waking up in the middle of the night, no timers. The event has made me laugh out loud a few times. So I'll be a good neighbor and have some fun!

    It's more complex than Stonecutters, that's for sure. I think as it goes along, we'll all get used to it.

    For the moment, I've got all my characters on 12-hour tasks (except for the quest line) just to keep the variables down. I don't need the money, and it helps me concentrate on the attacks/defenses.

    OP- I have faith in you (and all of us). With the attack a random person feature, a tapper doesn't even need a full friend list- or any friend list for this. After you have all the castles I feel we're going to progress very fast. Even without utilizing the best tactics/tips/tricks I think most of us will be done in 2 weeks.
    And then only about 5 weeks to sit around and wonder what to do now... :D

    The hardest part is the low amount of total nerds you can have (just 40 for the entire event?). It takes no time for me to log every 2-4hours, clean some shields and collect nerds, and then use them when I have more time. The problem is that a high level castle will produce a lot of nerds, so you have to use them immediately to avoid clogging up your pool in just the next 2 hours. And with the one-nerd-per-building strategy this can become quite time-consuming if I really log every 2-4 hours.

    No event, complaints. Event, complaints.

    Sigh.

    Someone posted that you can have more total nerds at once. 60 I think. Maybe higher? Cannot remember how.

    If you consider this or Stonecutters "hard work" I'd hate to see you mow a small lawn.

    Im actually finding this all pretty straightforward. If you just follow the storyline its a pretty well thought out event.

    It's not really that complicated if you read the dialogue and learn as you go. The only reason i can see for people to get confused is because they want to know everything straight away and reading a huge chunk.of text on here isn't the easiest way of working it out

    From what I've heard, Whacking Day was at least doable if you put in the time and had good neighbors.

    The hardest (i.e. impossible without spending a load of donuts) event was Easter.

    Thought it was a slow start, though now find it fun now. I already built 17 brown houses, 3 Krusty Burgers, & 3 Kwik-E-Marts (that only tap on for the Scratchy) for my neighbors to tap. Did this after reading that one needed stuff to tap for neighbors. I have chosen not to deliberately attack my neighbors, as there is less elixir & gold reward. Although have no issue with "revenge" if a neighbor attacks me.

    Believe me, when I work I'm not checking every 2 hours. The game is long enough that there is no sense of urgency to get done fast. I spend donuts for Witch Marge & have to wait for a quest to begin to use.

    130 is the highest. You can increase the max number of nerds and number of nerds being produced by castles by using elixir to upgrade them. The upgrades stop at level 20 and after this you can 'waste' your elixir to get a few castle parts (which is good because the recycled and the cardboard parts cost donuts) upgrading to level 21 on each castle costs 105k elixir (I know?!) and you get a wall, type depending on which castle you upgrade.
