Update to those who offered words of wisdom and support...today I aquired the marshmallow dude....I am excited about this because I didn't think I could do it.
Thanks EA for the flying feral beasts...double the bounty....SWEET. Also did anyone else notice the Googlplex theatre price drop significantly.
Have a great day.

    How are you not able to complete this? I'll put in my situation first and see how you compare.

    I send Burns, Space Mutant and Suzanne on 4 hour task, fight 2x monsters (4x at 8am). Send kids on trick or treat (started event with 4, unlocked 2 more so 6 now) I haven't visited neighbours at all (sorry neighbours, just couldn't commit the time). I play every 4 hours of approx 8am, 12pm, 4pm, 8pm, then wait until morning and start cycle again (with occasional extra visit thrown in if I'm awake late). Doing this I seem to get about 5,000 film each day.

    With 5 days to go I've unlocked Space Marshmallow and am now on first bonut round.

    I've bought with obols about 8 fence/wall items, 2 bats and the cave? thingy. I haven't bothered upgrading as early on realized it was slow going so used the prize track for film to get MAG points and save my obols for the dearer items.

    I've found this event slow for obols but easy for film.
    But my mum says I'm cool

    A number of us don't have all those premium characters/costumes. How many total film have you gotten from them combined in the past 10 days?

    How does one unlock the later crafting prizes without crafting multiples of the earlier items and unlocking the earlier levels?

    (myself, I have about 42K film and no premium items, except for SVT)

    Since the OP mentioned he started playing during the Wild West event, surely he hasn't unlocked certain characters needed for trick-or-treat. As well as not having any of the 4 characters that give extra currency (Count Burns, Suzanne, Boobarella & Space Mutant)

    It should be a little hard for him/her considering these things. He/She just has to keep trying. All of us were in his shoes one point or another.

    Aaaack!!! Apparently I should have paid closer attention to LP's walk through. I didn't realize there were any characters giving extra currency - and I have all four of them! I figured the task manager would have placed such characters at the top so their tasks would be more visible. Anyway, thanks for the tip! :)

    I don't have Burns the vampire to send out nor do I have Suzanne I started with one trick or treater Bart nor do I have any buildings that produce film

    Have not used any donuts for a single item
  • Thanks for your support. I don't have count Burns or Suzanne and yes I started with one trick or treater Bart. I am up to four now which is better than one. I work at it diligently to attain the goals set but it can be quite trying at times. Nor do I have any premium buildings and do appreciate my friends and the hard work they have put into their Springfields.
    Thanks again for the support.
    Sincerely
  • Nor do I have Boobarella or space mutant now we have compared situations

    Ah, geez, I've missed that too, until now
  • I followed LP's walk through religiously the last two major events and it was smooth running.

  • Cool thanks for the information

    I'm only on 47k film so not far ahead of you. I'd guess about 1800 per day came from extra trick or treaters plus Count Burns etc...

    My crafting is level 6, I have 435 obols. I've only crafted 4 iron fences, 2 gargoyle wall, 2 bats and 3 brambles plus the catacombs. I've leveled up just by getting MAG points from the prize line. I didn't see the point in upgrading by crafting as there's no rush and need to save for pricey items.

  • I can't remember where I read it, but somebody figured out that those overgrown rats need room to run to your spot. If you have a house farm, the rats that spawn in your house farm will just sit there and won't move at all. If you go into edit mode, their grey color justs blends into the greyed out houses, so you can't see where they are either.

    Yes, well pointed out and this should be checked by everyone having difficulty with this event. It happened to me - I check my game 5 times/day and did everything by the book, yet I was just barely ahead of the curve. Once I cleared the backlog of creatures, they just poured into gathering spot and now I realize how much event currency is actually available.
    Always looking to add active forum members! But please PM me first.
  • Thanks for the heads up
