    Ok, so with this of tapping the cannon and the elf door, should I not collect the blasts/elves? Do they accumulate handshakes or the fact that being ready or not does not change anything?
    Also, feel free to add me(vitorcrezende), I have some friends who've abandoned the game.

    Yep, John definitely found something good, here. I'll easily have the third prize by the end of the day. Lots of extra bells from tapping hatches and cannons, not to mention mine being tapped.

    Would be nice if at least one more thing worked like this. Elf home or something.

    I'm not sure I understand the question. Nothing changes, no harm no foul to anyone. Just keep clearing your canon and elf door as much as possible and only tap elf doors and canons when possible in neighbors towns. If you were to tap a neighbors house for instance, you would get fewer bells and neighbor only gets cash which most of us have a ton of. But if you tap the canon and door, you get more bells and your neighbor gets bells. It's just a bit more grindy time wise. See Annette's post.

    I was hoping the control center would be the third, but it doesn't appear to have a payout. Maybe something down the road will become number three?

    and this probably goes without saying but feel free not to tap my town unless my door and canon are ready to be tapped. If you want the lesser bell rewards tap away, I don't need the cash and am not going to remove any neighbors for not tapping.

    That would be nice! Nothing else really looks like a good candidate, but maybe we'll be surprised :)

    I wanted to ask a question. Usually when I visit a neighbor the Canon has a bell which I always go for along with the elf door bell. Just now I saw the fuse on top of the cannon instead of the usual bell. When I tapped on the fuse the Canon fired the elves in the bottles. Did I just waste one of my neighbors cannon blasts? Barry... Sorry neighbour if I did in fact waste one if your 3 blasts. First time that happened...

    you did not waste Barry's canon blast and gave him 5 bells!

    EDIT: wait that is a good question. I'm thinking, isn't it always a fuse not a bell over the Canon? I've yet to have canon interruptus.

    2nd EDIT: I went through a bunch of towns. found 5 canons all were fuses, so canons do not have bells.

    *snerk!*

    I've had a handshake on a cannon ready to fire, and it basically cleared itself and then I fired the cannon.

    Cheers oh merry neighboureenos!! :)

    I wasn't sure because I have experienced both the bell and the fuse on top of cannons. What worried me is when I tap the fuse the cannon starts firing. BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM.... I will continue going for cannons and elf doors as long as it's giving my neighboreenos the bonus bells. Merry Tapping Christmas!

    I hope non forum members can pick up on this pattern. Do we need to drag out the hail ants signs again?

    I haven't seen a bell yet above anyone's cannon; only nothing or the fuse. The great thing is these 2 items pay the visitor double compared to other items and the visited person receives bells too. Win win! :D

    Merry Christmas neighboreeno!

    I hope more players catch on and place the cannon and elf door close together, makes going through the neighboureenos so much faster! Kudos again to you John, Merry Christmas neighboreeno

    Well how fortuitous that I placed the cannon by the tunnel before I even saw this thread! Seemed logical at the time and now I see that it is!

    it just dawned on me, even if people don't see this thread they are going to tap the first three items they see and if your canon and door are side by side those will be two of the first three things and everybody loves firing the canon.
