    I could only go with the big E.

    Purely because no matter how devoted you were, and how much you tapped, there was no guarantee of getting all the prizes.
    Effort vs reward was well out of wack.

    The Chrustmas 2013 wheel was similar, but at least with enough spins, most people got everything.

    ****, although un simpsons related, did give us the chance to visit random towns (and take screenshots of interesting stuff like Multiple cardboard castles...)

    Id say Easter - only because of the chance boxes. That was unnecessarily stressful and created a lot of bad will towards the game. The second would be **** - I really liked it at first, but the prizes were all odd /non Simpsons and it dragged on forever.

    Wait, I didn't realize I couldn't get the alternate tunnel prizes for this christmas, so I actually missed a lot of facades most people got for free in this same event. Xmas 2014 worst ever.

    Easter was a disaster. It took advantage of premium players, isolated freemium players and **** pretty much everybody. Clash of Clones, however, had the worst prizes in any event ever. I still haven't brought out my castles or walls since the event ended.

    It's as if we're all giving EA the finger for that Easter event.

    This is hard! Haha.

    I hated the Stone Cutters event based on terms of how it looked. Everything was so ugly and despite keeping the castles out I often think they're way too chunky and out of place. I also hated this Christmas event that passed for the same reason. Everything was just a boring and the prizes are so useless (especially that island!)

    The castles wasn't the stonecutters that was the C o C, the stonecutters was the simpsons version of the masons.

    Whoops! It's 5:30am, I need sleep! Yes, I meant ****, Stone Cutters was a good event with some cool prizes.
    But we already did it. It took seven hours, but we did it. It's done.

    Easter disgusted me so much I vowed to never spend money on this game again. Which I haven't.


    Easily by and away the worst event. Spent a few donuts and still didn't get all the prizes. Missed sharry bobbins and at least one building. Stupid game of random chance. Xmas before it was bad but rather than learning their lesson they made the next big event even worse.

    Easter all the way. You could grind for 24 hours straight (I did) and still not get enough Gold eggs to spin the premium prize wheel.

    The only realistic way to get the eggs you needed was to swap your common colour egg in a neighbours basket, except no body had any baskets, especially when people started to go for the Faberge egg which stopped free baskets dropping.

    I spent over 700 donuts on baskets for my neighbours to use and all I got was 50% of whatever they changed. Managed to get the last prize with less than 48 hours to go (700 donuts and only just get the last prize!).

    So to people saying **** was the worst because it was too easy, try sitting up all night and still not getting a prize at the end of it. **** was relaxing.

    On the other hand I loved Wacking Day. There were no restrictions on how many eggs you could drop into a friends town. This meant you could go and dump 200 eggs into a neighbours town and get them over the line for a prize. Heck one of my neighbours with a large empty area found swear words written in eggs the result of a few people independently deciding to do it! (His response was to rearrange the eggs to tell us exactly what he thought!).

    Edit: Poor speeling

    Easter, because of the frustration factor. **** was dumb in terms of lack of Simpsons relevance and not rewarding neighbour visits, but the gameplay was sorta fun - the 'random town' feature was awesome, and something I hope they bring back.

    I loved Whacking Day, I terms of gameplay and Simpsons relevance. Same for SC - more episode referencing events needed, EA!

    I will always have a soft spot for Halloween 2012, though - first love is always sweet!

    Easter! Bought my way to all the prizes on one of the first days, so I had it all.

    My plan was to thoroughly enjoy the rest of the event send eggs galore to neighbors, and relax. It turned out to be the most frustrating time ever because I was unable to do what I'd looked forward to, and watched everyone go down in flames. I was drowning in eggs and nobody had any baskets, because of the freaking Faberg? egg d?b?cle. Yuck.

    Easter was definitely the worst. Though I put a huge blame on last years Christmas event because that's where they introduced the chance based prize system.

    Thankfully that's gone now.

    Not surprisingly it was Easter for me as well. The pure genius of EA to put your common egg color as a "prize" in the uncommon box was enough for me to fear for my iPads life as I wanted to hurl it across the room. They should have replaced the prizes you already won on the wheel/box with more spaces of prizes you haven't won, essentially increasing your odds as you go. That's the only event that I hadn't gotten everything, and I honestly didn't care because of how angry it made me with how they laid that event out.

    The **** event I didn't care for as others stated. If it wasn't for the not logging in for 24 hours glitch to get full credit being around I wouldn't have bothered trying to complete the event.

    Maybe it's just fondness for past events or that we are running out of good characters and non obscure buildings, but it feels to me that the prizes are going downhill. I appreciate the seasonal events sticking to a theme, but I long for the days when Christmas got us the bowlarama instead of prizes we wouldn't use after the event.

    Whacking day was a ROYAL pain in the ****, but had sweet prizes (maybe because I'm a sports fan). It was made even harder by the glitch that would randomly make your snake count go backwards as you were in a neighbors town, as the game released your snakes into the neighbors town making you catch your own snakes over and over. Looking back I don't think I can really appreciate how hard that event was! The snakes were fun to whack, to me it was giving eggs to your neighbors that was the real drag. Having to manually drop 200 eggs one tap at a time, and that was before the items would automatically deploy in a straight line, forcing you to look for an empty space to place every single egg was maddening!

    Easter by a long way! I know a lot of people also hated Whacking Day but that was my first major event so it has a lot of nostalgia value for me.

    I agree with you...however I do feel with all of the bunny zapping I thought I was going to ruin my phone! It sucked missing out on Sherry Bobbins. **** had the goofiest prizes and besides the new skins for the characters I found it a waste of time for the most part.
