    I'm about 2/3 of the way to Hugo. Who'd have thought that the fences and eggs are what's slowing me down?

    Also about halfway to Grand Pumpkin. I think I'm moving along nicely.

    For Hugo I'm at 257, 237 and 193 so I'm more then 2/3rds there. He is the best prize in this current group if you ask me. For the grand pumpkin I'm at 281, 87 and 105 so I'm not doing to well (not a lot of gold bags). That's ok bc I'm not dying to get the pumpkin house or the GP. total probes = 4887, should easily get the donut torture device at this rate.

    Only donuts I spent were on the ray gun. Pretty happy with that purchase. 3 ammo a day guarantee, kodos and a sweet decoration.

    Won 30 donuts shooting down a friends UFO, also won 3 spooky walls , 1 human test subject and 3 donuts from treat bags.

    That's awesome!! I did not realize you can get the spooky walls from bags as well. I got 1 human test subject from a bag. But that is it as far as bonus prizes. I am about 1/3 of the way there for the probes, so I think I can still make it.

    I'm not sure why it's taking longer for me to get items for Hugo or the Grand Pumpkin. I'm sending kids Trick-or-Treating, I'm squashing aliens left and right and I visit my neighbors every day and I still come up short.

    A little over half way to Hugo. Quiet a ways away from the pumpkin. I don't have premium kids. Hmmm.

    Do you have premium children? I have them all except Uter and I'm about 2/3 to the pumpkin house and 140 items from Hugo. The premium kids give guaranteed silver or gold with a Bette chance of the prizes you need for Hugo and the pumpkin.

    I have 3 premium kids (SVT, Kearney and Uter) but still a way to go for Hugo, about 4/5ths of the way there. Just under halfway for the grand pumpkin. I haven't been slacking, I'm on 5118 probes, just not been lucky I guess with treat bags.

    I'm close. Maybe another day or two. Just need another 50 each of fences and eggs.

    The big pumpkin is another story. Need at least 200 more of each bars and pumpkins.

    Never thought I'd say this but I need more fences. :wink:
    Only 13 fences and I'll have Hugo. And I'm more than halfway to the pumpkin house! I have Uter and SVT.

    Wait, I think I missed something. The prizes for probes window says that the prizes will rotate out, but the crafted prizes' window doesn't. Are we still going to lose the ability to "make" Hugo in less than a week?!

    Probably not. I believe the crafted items will remain through the event (though more will be added). However, as far as I know EA hasn't said definitively, so we don't know for sure.

    For those thinking of buying a premium kid to help with getting gift bags, just be aware that they take 16 hours instead of 8 to complete the trick or treating task

    I just got Hugo this morning :) As someone mentioned, make sure to have Homer free as they both have 4 hour tasks.
    As for the grand pumpkin, i'm just about half way 265/400 gummy bears - 115/350 chocolate bars and 137/300 pumpkins.

    I still haven't got a human test subject or shubs from the treat bags yet... But i'm hopeful i will soon :)

    and for my lovely neighbors on here, I have 14 grem aliens saved up.. I will send some to each of you that don't have Hugo yet.
    Hopefully you will be able to get some treat bag drops from them to help you out. :D

    I'm roughly 30 fence pieces and 30 eggs shy of Hugo and now all of a sudden all my bronze bags have dried up. I got more silver bags from my ToTers this morning and every alien I popped that gave me a bag gave me a silver one. WTH game?

    and apparently the mutant **** and donut torture device will become craft items after the 20th.

    Mutant ****: 500 rotten eggs/500 gummi bears/300 pumpkins.
    Donut torture device: 200 broke fences/500 candy corn/500 chocolate bars

    Those are some pretty high costs. Imagine coming up just short of the 8050 needed by the 20th and have to start over saving up a new form of currency to get them while you're trying to save up for other craft items.

    Once you have Hugo you will still need crafting items to build the Spooky House (300 broken fences, 100 gummy bears, 50 candy bars) so this could affect your Grand Pumpkin savings. Same for Pumpkin House. These things don't come free.

    While putting a few **** items in KL, I found the Human Test Subject in my inventory :D

    Now all my focus can go to Hugo and the Pumpkin. :D

    And staying #1 on my Friend Leaderboard :twisted:
