Two hover copter

Awesome!
I'm still 250ish short of getting it.
Might want to make sure you leave them both out in play, incase stuff starts disappearing out of storage like it did after the last event.

    This is a repeatable glitch for event items. Switching devices right after winning something gets you two.

    I have 2 of the whacking day statue

    I might upload TSTO on my phone just to try this out.

    I came on here to talk about the same thing. I went from my tablet to my phone and now I have two Hover-Copters.

    This sounds wonderful. How do I do this? I have multiple devices, so it seems it's possible for me.? I'm probably going to win hovercopter today, but will delay it until I'm sure how this works.

    Say I'm signed on to my android and get the notice that I just won ... Do I click to accept it? Or do I just sign in on the other device before I click anything? Do I log out of the first device, or just not touch anything, sign on to the second device, override the warnings that I'm signed onto another device? Is it better if I use an iOS for the second device? I have 3 androids and an iOS ( ... Brief pause while my mother spins in her grave ... )

    ANY suggestions would be helpful. :)

    Log into you game on one device. Collect the copter. Scan around your town a little bit (say 30 seconds to a minute) so the game can sync. ( I wouldn't recommend sync'ing the game by going to friends page) After you wait a little bit. Close the game via home button on your device. Now log into you game with the other device and hope you get the second prize. It doesn't work every time though. Good luck

    Thank you. Maybe it'll work ... :)

    That's very cool. I got redundant items from Stonecutters but can't use them.

    Nice! This happened to me with the Hot Air Balloon during the Clash of Clones event. Using two different devices sometimes pays off!

    Jealous, but glad I have the knowledge on how to capture & double an item next time.

    I tried it but it didn't work. No biggie. I am a Happy Little Camper with just one. As direwolf said above, it doesn't always work. Oh, well. :)

    I'm going to try this, I have a town that has some Stonecutters duplicates showing in the inventory but if I try to place them I get the message you have already placed this item.

    Getting close, less than 11hours to go and I need 300 rayguns (Raygun also happens to be the model of my K2 snowboard).

    GO GIANTS, WORLD SERIES CHAMPS AGAIN

    I got 2 hover copters as well and yes it doesnt work every time.

    this glitch started during the whacking day event.

    I got 2 sets of snake rocks with that glitch during that event by mistake and then figured it out and used it to get 2 of every whack box at the end of the event.

    then during Last Xmas i got 2 elf houses with the same glitch

    Last Halloween i got 2 of the Twirl n hurl ride for krustyland and i tried for 2 ancient burial grounds but it didn't work.

    during clash of clones i really wanted 2 balloons or 2 catapults but it didn't work for each of them.
    it only worked for the arc of the stone covenant but it does not allow me to place the second one in my town and it is stuck in my inventory.

    So it works sometimes and not others and it will never work for characters or skins.
    it is just decorations and it doesn't always work.
