Open treat bags as soon as you get them too (some players are hoarding I really don't know why) and use up your UFO ammo.
Er, as a L45 freemium player, I'm not entirely convinced myself that I can hit the top targets without spending. I've got 77 friends I visit every day, play my own SF twice a day to get the 2 x 8 hour treat collecting, release all the gremaliens as soon as I get them and tap the ones in my SF, and I've only just hit about 3,400 probes. The only ways I can see to get them any faster than I already can is to buy some premium kiddies to increase the treat collecting, or buy some probes (I assume you can buy them, I haven't looked, just kept my head down and tapped like mad).
It can be discouraging to say the least when I look at the leader board and see someone on 64,000 while I'm on 2,900ish. I can only imagine how discouraged relatively new players with limited kiddies and much reduced treat collecting capabilities must be.
Please note - the above is an observation only, not a complaint, not a moan. It's only a game! Life goes on and I'm enjoying the quest and everything in it, but I have a realistic view about my odds of completing it - that doesn't upset me at all.
