Christmas: what I know so far *Spoilers,Warnings&Chart*

Prev13
I just got 60 presents (first 10 towns, 3 taps per town, 2 presents each) and then 85 presents (3 taps per town, 1 present each, so around 30 next towns because I probably tapped on elf houses, the Xmas tree and the present depot by mistake)

Things I noticed, the Halloween Regelian Hut had cash over it in towns with presents elsewhere as did the Black Box Bar (so I assume these wouldn't produce presents either) (as did Channel 6, the drive in theatre so the famlike things)

Thanks for the beginning timelines

    thanks a lot, and thanks mostly for this:

    "Important Thing to remember: the building sand decorations which give you christmas currency aka presents will not give you ANY presents at a neighbour's town. That means that stay away from the trees, the deposit and the elf house! "

    I completed Tunnel 3 from the elf cave and got the christmas depot (metal looking tree). Are the prizes different based on what we already have?

    I still don't have the Elf Cave... who triggers this??

    Edit - nm, Homer triggers it. He was busy doing a King Winter quest.

    I had almost all the the lights since Christmas 2012. I bought Frink afterwards so for Christmas 2013 I got his lights for 10 donuts. My options were also different for the Simpsons snowmen I had since 2012 in 2013. That being said it is very probable (I’d go so far as say sure) that the players who don’t have something since last year they will get it through the same means as we get the new things. Unfortunately I’m not sure on whether for you the 2014 decorations your doors skip will be given for free, cash or will be available for donuts at some point after the 20th of December (19 doors in total so far are visible)

    It will be given through the dialogue by Santa after Homer and Lisa work for 4 hours in the workshop
    What is the Elf cave and Elf house?

    The Elf cave is a flat on ground red door with mushrooms and it’s value is similar to the Stonecutters’ Sacred Parchment (wall of riddles). It gives you 3 daily quests for an award, an elf (one more worker to make you presents) and if you complete the quests in less than 24 hours you get the 100 presents bonus.

    The Elf house is officially called the Elf home which was awarded last year (Christmas 2013)

    I just merged some of my replies.

    I've rushed a few tasks and what I now know about the event so far it’s written here.

    It will be updated until something better is posted and if you have something to add by all means go for it.


    No speculation* is included. For speculations* you know which member’s posts to follow. This is what you get after rushing bit.


    SPOILERS



    6) The Feds

    Probably come after Homer's 24h strike.

    Why?

    Santa is paying with candy canes. The elves like it and as a result they have cavities. The logical process now is that after Homer does’t want to be payed as the elves and therefore is on strike he will alert the feds. The feds in the game are going to towns to see on whether the elves are been treated well (this has been mentioned as the task they have in the files if you see the *speculations* thread) etc. So you will need about 3 days from the start of the event until you get your feds and start getting presents from other towns with their aid.

    Edit: I read that the feds appear at Jingle Bell wreck pt.9. Homer go on strike task is Jingle Bell wreck pt.5

    Just to add to that, I rushed a bit and the quests are lengthy. No point in rushing. Somewhere in the quests Lisa has a 12hr task and Homer has a 16hr plant shift.
    Jingle Bell Wreck Pt.8 homer has 12hr "get bossed around by elves" and Burns has 12hr "Pay Plant Workers in Candy Canes".

    No problem, I *think* Lisa's 12hr task is part 6 and Homer's 16h plant shift is part 7 but wasn't paying attention closely.

    Positive about Pt. 8 as I have them on that quest now.

    The Christmas event doesn’t work like the FP. You don’t get presents because your neighbours visited you.

    Once the Feds drive then you will be able to get presents from your neighbours in another way but your neighbours will never directly give them to you. That perhaps was done to avoid pacts like last year or the advantages of a feeder town (second town used by the primary town to help raise the event currency amount of the main town)
