Phase 2 time length

But the finial prize only costs 7,200 ray guns. The last prize in the next round costs around 14,000 so be grateful for the extra time we get.

    I heard we get 6 proteins per squish so that should be easier anyway, shouldn't it?

    This time it's a lot more work since it's one less day and one less ray gun per rigellian squished.

    Luckily for me i finished the probes quest with just under two days remaining. I decided to take a gamble and continue to 'grind' and send my kids trick or treating but i didnt open any bags. By the time the quest ticked over to Ray guns i had almost 60 various trick or treat bags unopened in my 'stockpile'.

    Once it ticked over to the ray gun segment i opened all the bags. Instead of receiving probes (as well as all the other random items) i received ray guns instead. I was able to get a jump start on the ray guns getting my total to over 250 straight off the bat.

    Im now 14 hours into the Ray guns and have 606 total. With just 2 guns for every 'squish' i think this segment will be a tight squeeze for 11 days. I dont use donuts but im on every 3-4 hours for a quick cleanout (except for sleep).

    I'll be doing it again if i can get the Ray guns completed before time runs out. I'd suggest anyone else who finishes ahead of time do the same for the DNA. I will be if i can.

    This just means there will be less time left when we finish it, but I guarantee there will be more than enough time to finish it.

    So i figured out i'd reach the final Ray gun prize (Hover-copter) with regular squishing etc and without the extra ray guns found in the treat bags about 3-4 days out from the end. So i've been cycling my kids through the trick and treat stockpiling the treat bags for when the game clicks over to the DNA strand phase.

    So far ive got 125 bags ready and waiting to be opened. 86 Bronze, 28 Silver and 11 Gold. 12hrs to go before the change over and i should get another 10 or so treat bags from the kids giving me 135+ treat bags.

    Hopefully that will give me enough of a jump start on the DNA to make sure i get to the final prize. I really want that Burns Alien thing.

    Right on then.. You just answered a question I had in a previous post asking how "hoarding" treat bags and such is beneficial.. and here we are!! I feel really stupid sometimes because not really sure why I wasn't thinking of this!! Thanks buddy!

    Ditto... I totally didn't understand this either. Thanks!

    Wondering if I should start a small hoard because getting the chopper is impossible for me at this point.

    The last prize in this phase isn't that good anyway, so I really don't care if I get it. I just want that Mr. Burns alien skin.

    My Jumpstart got me about 250 DNA strands, 60 odd grem alien eggs and a dozen missiles (as well as all ther other assorted stuff. I was hoping for a bit more but theres about 9 hours to go on day three and im on track with 3650 strands. This one will be much tighter than the other two though..........

    A lot of people were caught off guard by getting all of the needed strands early, it's one time that many people are glad to be wrong in their assumptions 8)
