This is the best Christmas Event ever!!!

Prev1
This is the best Christmas event ever aside from the first Christmas event, which I didn't play. I really like the number of quality prizes and the simpler mechanisms. Much better than the Halloween 2015 event which was probably the worst or second worst ever. How are you enjoying the event?

Best ever... ASIDE FROM?

Yes it's fun. Glad to hear you're enjoying it.

But Halloween '15 was in no way the worst of even second worst event. Please check your hyperbole at the door... :wink:

    Yeah, you with the 00 starting name get lots of presents! That's why YOU like it!

    Just kidding... :D I love the event so far. Great prices, great mechanism, There are two things which I would've liked to have changed. First: Give us more presents, 5 per day is just very very few and not really good for neighbouring. Second: Let more kids earn squishee tickets, I see no reason to only let a few work there.

    Halloween 15 the worst event ever?

    With 100 free donuts and roughly 200% free multiplier?

    Well, I don't think so... ;)

    Obviously you werent around when we had the prize wheel(s)

    Or the red and blue crafting thingies for the prize wheel too!

    Rest assured there are worse things than halloween 2015 which in my opinion was quite nice.
    Especially all the free donuts :D

    This event though looks like its the best event ive seen since i started playing during the whacking day event of years past. Even better than the superheroes event by far :D

    Maybe I am missing something, but I actually find the event kind of boring. yeah, the snow is nice, the prizes are good, but there's not much to do, just tap the merry makers and send kids to make squishies which the only purpose is to make tapping the merry makers easier. Ohh and I get to drop 5 presents a day to friends.

    Of course this is just my opinion, and I respect everyone elses opinion, and am glad people are liking the event. But I personally prefer the grind. And now with this post, I should start receiving the hate mail which will give me something to do :lol:

    I'm enjoying this event. Christmas is a very busy time of the year, and I prefer a low key event because I'm busy with the holidays. I think EA struck a good balance.

    That being said, I'm seriously disappointed with the daily five gift limit. This is a time of giving, and I'd prefer giving many more gifts to my neighboreenos. We should at least be able to purchase more gifts with donuts. I purchased two boatloads for this event, and I really don't have many places to use them.

    Thats a lot of donuts! I purchase one boatload per year and it lasts me the entire year :D

    Wait till the next 2 acts..there will be plenty of things to purchase with donuts :D

    No hate mail here. I don't care much about the upgraded tapping radius but I do keep sending kids to make squishes in hopes there will be another use for the tickets. Has anyone seen any other benefits to continued squishy making?

    Sorry, I was vague. I meant it was the second worst or worst Halloween event.

    Maybe we will get something if the squishee machine maxes out?

    There was no Halloween event this year.
    There was a very bizarre octopus, castle, acid trip event that happened around the time a Halloween event was expected, but no vampires or witches or classic monsters...or children in costumes trick or treating.
    I liked the donuts, but was disappointed in no Halloween event this year, as it is one of my favorites.


    This Christmas event is one of the best ever. IMO
    Make Nightmare Pile like Zombie Sandwich. All kids trick or treat at once.

    I'm doing it for the extra hats you get for completing the task. If those stop I'll probably not continue upgrading it.

    I have to be honest... I feel this event makes everything a bit of a pointless chore.

    It sounds like you have never read any HP Lovecraft - the "great-grandfather of horror", or about the squid-like monster/god he created called Cthulhu. Trust me - it was a Halloween event, based on the stories of one of the greatest, classic horror writers of all time, which made it absolutely amazing in my opinion.
