    You could buy additional Elf Homes during the event last year.

    It does. 5 presents every....whatever it is number of hours.

    Looks great in my Christmas-land area. Will be in storage the rest of the year though because it looks so out of place in regular Springfield.

    Just a quick heads up for people who haven't gotten there: Homer kicks off the Tunnel 4 quests (at least he does in my town) so you might want to hold off on his 24 hour strike task. I didn't and now have to wait a day to start the Tunnel 4 quests.

    Yep same here... I was awake early so I thought I might as well start the quest just in case... But my Homer still has 17 hrs on strike, therefore I will be missing the bonus, the prize I think I will get even if I don't care I already have an elf home and I don't really want another one. But now I know, if Homer or Lisa are busy, I will not touch the tunnel until they are done with their tasks.

    You won't miss the bonus. The timer starts when you start the first quest, not at midnight EA time, so no worries, you'll have plenty of time.

    Well luckily I won free 10 Christmas trees last year thats 100 free presents a day. How many Christmas presents do elf homes give out. Either way
    I am disappointed santas village doesn't make presents just feeds deer.

    Freeloading ras-a-frasa-frkn$@&&@.... Always happy tapping heh....

    Both tasks popped up at the same time so I sent homer on santas 2 hour task before his 24hr strike.

    I have Homer free, but when I tap the button at the top right or the elf cave, I just hear a click but nothing pulls up. Waddup?

    Between Black Friday deals and Christmas (including the cave), I have a giant queue of quests requiring Homer. It's a little frustrating.

    Hello,

    Apparently, Tunnel 4 prize is Christmas Willie’s Shack, or for those who already have it, Elf home. Since I have both of them, I checked to see what do I have - and it is Elf home. So apparently, we can have multiple of those.

    Since it boosts indolence rating, I'm not complaining. I just have to wait 21 hours for Homer to finish strike in order to start Tunnel 4 tasks.

    Obvious question for those who rushed Tunnel 4 tasks and receive second Elf home: does it also earns presents? I am guessing that it should, just like multiple Spooky houses during Halloween earned treat bags.

    I have two elf homes from last year. So it looks like I'll have a third.

    I would much rather get an elf home then lights for Willie's shack. This is my first Christmas playing, so I got the lights for Willie's shack. Boo.

    Mine says "Check again on a later day", not today. I think today's tunnel is Tunnel 4.

    my first Christmas too. I really think we should have got elf home. I would much rather have an item that will actually help get presents then some lights O.o very disappointed!!!!!!!! :( we new players don't have all the past items to give free presents, going to be hard pressed to get them all! you would think e.a would have thought of that and given the elf home as option one. Unless they just don't want us new player's doing good so we won't get to the option to earn doughnuts :(
