    For donuts? I consider that to be cash well spent!

    I should have written "a waste for me." I realize that many people on this forum have 80 billion in cash and love to spend it.

    I'm still working through level 47 quest lines (although I'm technically at level 48 ). I need $150K to put towards buildings, not for getting an additional one or two donuts.

    Think about it this way: your opportunity to earn in-game cash will still be there after the event, and so will the level questlines and buildings. Your opportunity for bonus donuts in an event is limited time.

    Spend the in-game (read:virtual or free) currency for donuts (read: actual) currency while you can.

    Yes, well put.

    I'm enjoying the donuts for this event, especially as I was one of the unlucky ones during Halloween 2014 that didn't get a 30 donut drop :)

    Same here :)

    Can someone please slap me!? Yes, again! Grr! With the lvl 50 update I bought the Pancake house with Helen Lovejoy, but, after getting my next donutround which cost me 300 000 (yet again) I noticed I only have 200 000 more in the bank! Which will get me nowhere!

    Does someone know for how much I can sell the pancake house? If I can sell it for at least 750 000 I would and I would buy it again after event is over. I dont like being this low on money when I have a change of getting free donuts and probably missing out on them because of my horrible picking choices!

    I didn't hit a single donut-packed UFO during the Halloween event, but I still did far better in donut accumulation than I have for this latest event. I'm pretty sure I was up 120+ donuts for Halloween just from grinding for treat bags.

    However, it seems that this time around it's far easier to hit the bonus quotas for collecting pies, rods, etc. The only downside is that it's draining my cash reserves because I rarely pick the window with three donuts the first time... or even the second time. I'm basically paying $100K per donut, which isn't a bad price, all things considered.

    I don't know, because it just pops up with a warning that Helen Lovejoy will also be sold. I don't want to lose her and wait another day to get her back.
    If you must sell stuff, maybe sell decorations or buildings that don't come with a character.

    You might get back about 25% of what it cost to buy her or less...so you would be worse off than you think. At least with her you can earn money from the building and the storyline(two storylines if you have the Cracker Factory)...

    Things to consider selling:bloodmobiles, the rat trap delivery van (maybe the backyard bbq but I don't know what the payout is on that)and random aspirational things(I'm hoping I won't have to sell my outdoor diamond aspirational but that's 1.25 million) but I've cashed in my Krustyland ticket stockpile (also if you have lots of green things in your town or lots of brown fences they can add up)

    Didn't get one ufo donut hit at Halloween, oh the agony of seeing other tappers get it 6 or 8 times. Would have been happy with once!

    Five donut bonuses so far this part of the event :mrgreen: Twice I hit 3 first go too.

    I haven't reached the pie count for Dr. Colossus but I'm happy to hear that free donuts are coming :lol: but Ive still gotten non- related event donuts like 5 from sideshow you 2 days ago, 2 from the level update 1 from cleaning up debris and 4 from visiting neighbors :mrgreen: so far so good :thumbup:

    Probably a stupid question....where do I get the free donuts in this event? I know it's a x-amount of carbon rods after you unlock all the prizes for a phase, right? That's how I understand it. I don't generate carbon rods anymore in phase 2.

    Do I need a certain character? Right now I'm working to unlock the bank.

    You're a ways away. Right now, bonus boxes are awarded for every 4000 pies after unlocking Doctor Colossus.

    Xmas 2012 (the very first one) was a great one for donuts. At the end of the event we were able to trade in our Santa Coins for a chance at reindeer or donuts. I never stopped collecting coins once I had gotten all the event items, so I was able to clean up. I wound up with over 200 donuts just from trading at the end.

    Oh ok thanks. So, but it also goes back to generating rods?

    The bonus is for pies, not rods. It was rods during the first issue, but that's over. In three days, we'll have a new issue with a new currency.

    Oh so I missed out on the first wave of bonus donuts?

    Ok I understand now. Any time that was left over after completing an issue. Which I didn't have. Guess I'm gonna miss out on the next wave on donuts too. No way I'm gonna finish before the next issue opens.

    I got Dr. Colossus yesterday AM. In barely a day and a half, I've already gotten 9 bonus donuts from the collection of pie bombs- and I'm halfway to earning another 3.

    I can also get free donuts from visiting friends - I seem to get about 2 or 3 a day, usually.

    Has there ever been another event that pays off so many free donuts? I don't remember one, but I may be going senile! :D

    Yes I'm also crushing the free donuts during this event and it sure seems easier to achieve . Good luck with your possible senility ?

    Donut bonus number 6 :mrgreen:

    Three on the first guess for the third time too!

    Most certainly my best event for free donuts.

    I've already lost count of how many free donuts I've gotten this event. However, even though I didn't get any donut UFOs, I'm fairly certain I still got more free donuts at Halloween. They just kept dropping from treat bags.
