WHY AM I STILL COLLECTING SANTA COINS???

Just do what I do: collect two coins per friend and then graffiti for the other.

    I got SLH tonight and forced myself to start vandalising again when doing the 'rounds instead of automatically going for the coins. It was a bit tricky at first just because of force of habit (a holiday tree ready to collect was hardest to ignore) but I soon got back in the swing of spray-painting my friends' buildings and enjoying it again.

    I just wish they would reward loyal, early finishers with some kind of reward like 5 or 10 donuts per 1000 santa coins left over at the end...

    Actually, I suspect that the fact that the Santa coins "hide" now unless you make them show by tapping the conformity meter or on a coins-purchasable item means that EA is preparing us for their inevitable loss. Once we are accustomed to not seeing them, when they disappear, as did the Halloween currency, we may not notice it immediately. Our reward will be, as always, the privilege of playing a free game to which we have become addicted like crack.

    Try and get your 4-5 taps with vandalism. Or maybe not. By the 4rth time I do that I get booted from the game.

    I keep feeling like if I don't keep collecting coins, then EA will do some trade up of sorts for them, and I'll get screwed because I stopped.

    (Damned if you do; damned if you don't. Fool me once; shame on you. Fool me twice; shame on me.) Just have to wait and see what EA thinks is the most suitable way to serve their supporters. unfortunately, I started late and didnt get enough treats during halloween. This time I over reacted a bit and ended up with surplus coinage. Well, better with too many than too few.

    I'm really surprised they don't add something to buy with coins (or candy/future currency) that is repeatable through the event. For instance candy cane striped light posts for Christmas for 125 coins or so. That would give us something to spend our excess on...and perhaps we wouldn't long for a nice shrubbery when the mystery box rolled around.

    I'm only still collecting because I purposely went slow from the beginning. I didn't fill my list up with 100 friends, as it's just too many for me. When I did that during Halloween, I got sick of visiting so many friends, and eventually stopped until I cut down on my friends list. I also haven't been getting 3 coins from each of my friends on each visit, instead only getting 1 or 2 and then vandalizing. I only have a funzo doll left, that tbh I don't really want, but at least it's something to work towards.

    After playing through Halloween, I didn't see a point in rushing, so I didn't. So instead of having 2 weeks with nothing to do but wait for the snow to melt, I have another week or so of saving.

    The app tells us we have until Jan 3 when you press the ? Mark next to Santa coins... However the "fourmasphere" is buzzing with rumors that EA will extend the time... Who knows :?:

    I think the best course is to go for $$ now. You wont likely get any bonus for the coins,,,,if you do it wont be anything that would require you to hold 5000 coins.

    I do wish EA would at least provide a teeny tiny bit of insight on this...heaven forbid

    The game, like this forum isn't moderated


    In any case...earn $$ to buy land!
    Is there anyone out there?
