    Yeah, I reckon it's pretty easy, even with the limitations to handing in projects

    It's hard to unlock track/station parts, but gameplay is easy.

    No all of us can spare 3 hours in the morning to play.

    If you can spare 10-20 minutes at a time 2 times during the day and maybe an hour in the evening, it's much more difficult. For those of us with a job and a life, that's pretty much the limit.

    I am not playing 3 hours constantly. The three hours is how long it takes to make more glass.

    The event itself is easy. I got nervous because I was beginning college, and wouldn't have much time. I just completed Act 2's Prize Track this morning, and that's with heavily reduced gameplay this past week and a half. I check in for a few minutes multiple Easy as can be.

    After seeing spAnser's early notification email regarding the Monorail event, the 2 pointy things on my chest became so HARD, I felt confident enough to place an international call using one of my pointy things on this phone

    Otherwise, the event is EASY.


    *** I believe the medical term for chest pointy thing is censored. Maybe. ***

    for me it's been hard because of all the crashing every time something comes up to collect (and thats every 30 sec for trash). Just about anything will make my game crash neighbours visiting me, jobs completing, buildings ready to collect and sometimes for no obvious reason.

    I find myself playing the game less this event than I would during an off time.

    Way too easy..

    On Sunday I had over 18,000 duct tapes to get Uriah Heap. I thought, 'ok that should take about 2 days no biggie' The next day (yesterday) I did over 18,000 duct tapes and blew right through the goal. I don't even know what I'm doing special. I play often but I'm not grinding by any stretch. So yes, very easy.
    And I'm ok with that!

    I'm just glad there's no crafting element. I hope it never returns to any event ever again.

    It sure has Neo. It was a relief not having to craft prizes.

    Certain aspects are easy; others are hard. In particular, it's been very hard to get enough straight track. I need about 100 more pieces...

    Depends on definitions, and even then it is relative.

    I'm doing the event in 3 towns. I'll get the prizes in all of them. In two towns I have no premium characters that can work the event, and spent no donuts on event items. In my A-Town I bought Jesse, Utter, and have Brandine; so my A-town is much easier. Because I'm playing RTTF, and I really want to see if I can "finish" by 1-Jan, I play constantly. In my RTTF town at least every hour, and usually more. So I take time every hour to get into my A and B Towns to collect resources, turn in projects, and reassign event characters.

    In my RTTF town I'm doing SQP, SH, KL, SF, and the event. Priority goes to SF. Currently doing quests from levels 33 to 43. I have 18 tasks in the task book.

    But this is probably not as hard as one of our RTTF competitors who is doing 6 towns!

    And then there was Annette who was once doing 11 towns.

    Yeah.. But you all choose to put yourself though that. (nothing wrong with that)

    For just one or two towns this is an easy event that takes very little effort for the reward.

    Certainly one of the easiest events we've had recently, I've generally hit the limit in around 2 to 3 hours then just pop on a couple of times to build my stock up for the next day.

    Right. I was trying to put enough info so someone can make a comparison. And to point out it is relative. When people say it is easy or hard without any information about what premiums they have or how often they play I find it less easy to compare.

    As another data point, my wife only plays every 2-3 hours for 12 hrs. She has no premiums for the event and no donuts spent. She got the Act II prize this morning.

    I find this the easiest event since I started play Xmas 2013. Easiest in time spent. Super easy in terms of strategy.

    How the frack can anybody keep track of 11 towns???? I had 2 at one point and never played my secondary town so I left it dormant. My one and only town gives me more than enough enjoyment/stress so how anybody could manage 11 is beyond me. Each to their own I guess
