Is it actually possible for freemium players to get everything for this Halloween event?

Prev1
Yes. The only donuts I've spent came from the event itself. I cleared phase 1 with 3-4 days to spare. Phase 2 took a bit longer (2-3 days early) but only because I stopped opening treat bags (saving for phase 3). Also, I have crafted one of each prize (not the walls or jarred humans).

    To get all the reward items(donut machnice, copter,and UBO), I would say yes, becouse up until now I got them all, no donuts spent.

    But to craft all craftable items, I would say no. I crafted Hugo, and by the end of event I should have enough for Queen, but nothing else, becuse i have only 5 trick or treaters (level 19) , and fences and chocolate bars are dropping to little. MAYBE, if you had all available trick or treaters,but I think you still won't get enough fences.

    I'm a freemium and I have mutant ****, donut torture device, bulldzoer-saurus, and the hover-coptor. I already had the pumpkin house from Halloween 2013, but I do have Hugo, Grand Pumpkin, Spooky House, Human Test Subject (through treat bag), and two Rigellian shrubs (through treat bag), and spooky wall (through treat bag). This morning, I crafted the Rigellian Queen and I'm waiting for the quest to continue so I can build the hut.

    The only donuts I spent was to get Kodos. I didn't pay for them...I had nearly 300 donuts saved from the previous year of playing TSTO when this event started. I got 30 donuts back using the missles from the ray gun and got maybe 10-15 donuts from the treat bags and visiting neighbors.

    Also, I actually got the donut torture device and hover-coptor 2-3 days before that portion of the event ended, so I was able to hoard bags and open them up after the new phase started.

    It's quite easy for a freemium to get everything...just have to be consistent each day. I make sure I go in every 8 hours for the trick or treaters (I also have SVT from the daily prize box) and the missle and every few hours to tap the regellians running around my town. I also visit my neighbors daily to get more stuff.

    I am a freemium player, although I already had SVT and brought Witch Marge and I have got all the prizes and crafted the Queen, Hugo and the Spooky House.

    I don't know if I will get the pumpkin house(s) and the hut but I am going to try my best I think I have enough for one at the moment but its just which one!

    Good luck getting everything and max out your neighbours.

    freemium player, level 23, and it is perfectly possible to get all the prizes from the ray guns, probes etc. However with only 4 kids walking around I just managed to craft Hugo but still need an enormous amount of pumpkins and fences to create the pumpkin and the spooky house. So I think the crafting prizes are not doable as a freemium player, maybe only when you are very far in the game and have like 10 kids for ToT-ing

    I've only spent saved up donuts on SVT, my only premium teen, but even without you should be able to get all the personal prizes if you log on 4 times a day to squash aliens (morning, then every 4 hours) - 5 times a day would make it easy, actually. You also need at least 30 active neighbors, but the more the better especially if they send you grem-aliens. And obviously, if you're at the max level, that helps too. Basically the same "requirements" as any other event.

    So far I've got all the personal prizes, including the hover-copter. Also crafted Hugo and the Spooky House. Still about 50 chocolate bars short of the Grand Pumpkin, and more than 100 broken fences short of the Rigellian Queen, but I think I'll be able to craft those in time.

    Apparently, number of chocolate bars for rigelian hut is lowered from 300 (as it was expected at the beginning of the event) to only 50. I will be able to buy it as soon as I unlock that quest, and I am freemium so I don't see problem there anymore (unfortunately I send Kang to study with Lisa too early, and he triggers that quest).

    Requirements for other components of the hut are lowered too, which is good because there are some people reporting scarcity of fences.

    I'm freemium and I have received almost prize thus far without donuts but for the grand pumpkin and I need 110 more chocolate bars, which I am *hoping* (and thinking) I'll end up getting. So yes, it is possible, depending on how you play.

    Yes. I believe it is possible but there is some element of luck as to what you get in your treat bags.

    My kids are on permanent trick or treating - damn EA for keeping trying to take them to do pointless random tasks that have now dropped in half by money! Finally sucked in to let Nelson do that 12 hour task for his mum.

    I managed the first part and got the donut machine about a day early. I ended up 15 Ray guns short but did have at least one slack day and had to spend 5 donuts. I crafted the queen this morning and still have over 200 of the other items but my chocolate bars have dried up on the last couple of days and I'm now stuck on 302 and 48 short of the giant pumpkin.

    It is possible but you need a lot of kids for trick and treating - having the twins and squeaky voice teen helps but it takes them 16 hours for the task. Having neighbours helps - thank you to my neighbours for helping out along the way, I've tried to reciprocate but have focused on those struggling to get enough items. And, a bit of luck with your bags helps also. It is possible but it's hard work.

    I have most of it thus far...just missing the Spooky House (I delayed that to get the Grand Pumpkin) and the Rigillian Tribal Hut which hasn't unlocked for me yet. I think I will have no problem getting all of the items.

    I've only spent donuts on Witch Marge. I have no other premium characters.

    Freemium player. Crafted Hugo, Grand Pumpkin and just got Rigelian Queen. Spooky house is crafted, as well as an extra Pumpkin House. Just need fences and chocolate to get Rigelian Hut and prizes for everything are on task. Only spent a few donuts to speed up so I could get trick or treating, but quickly regained those.

    I've been able to get all of the freemium content thus far with no problem. I've spent no donuts to do so, including NOt buying the Hunting License or Portal.

    It appears the for most, the answer is yes, however, I have not gotten the main prizes for each phase yet (DTD & Hovercopter). It appears to me that most of the people saying it is 'easy' have been able to log on multiple times a day. I personally do not have that kind of time available, so with once a day (sometimes twice) I have come up short on both phases myself. My point is simply that while it does seem possible, you need to be quite committed to being on more than twice a day. (for the record, I am not freemium, but have tried not to spend any donuts on the prizes yet...hoping I can catch up!!)

    Ive gotten everything, only played MAYBE twenty minutes a day. Used two donuts to speed up the building to force it to fit my schedule. Plus, this HAS to be the most generous event ever, free donuts in bags as well as for shooting down ufos, not to mention the reward we get at the end of the quest.

    It's easy to complete the event freemium. Log in every 3 hours, 6 times a day.

    Have got Hugo, Spooky House, Rigellian Queen. Doubt i'll get enough crafting items for Grand Pumpkin, Pumpkin House and Rigellian Hut but will have to see. 10 days left after all.
