    Hoarding everything in my main town. I expect a huge head start with tokens and club points when Act 3 starts.

    Still 2K chips away from the last prize in my 2nd town.

    I can't tap at work so I can't play the game much except at weekends. I only just barely completed Act 1. I think I'm doing slightly better in Act 2, but remember that it's a lot harder if you don't get in every four hours...

    Doesn't do any good to hoard the chips, because, the color will be going to blue, and the whole thing will start over again for act 3. As for the casino tokens, my plan is, no more gaming unless my daily challenge requires it. I want to have a ton for act 3, so I can get the prizes faster. I have all the prizes from act 2, including most of the crafting stuff, including the Safari casino. My Monorail track jobs are done for the next 3 plus days, so, I'm just biding my time until act 3 starts, and, oh ya, level 3 was finished days ago.

    Ive started. Ive just finished the act 2 prizes today. I have about 80 coins right now, but should have tons more by act 3. I can't craft anything just I just got the silver players club casino and only need 20 more pts for the bonus chips that would be worthless right except for doughnuts. Id rather ruch through at 3 and go for all the doughnuts then.

    I finished act 2 today and yeah i am hoarding my tokens now for act 3!

    If yoy have over 400 tokens and your not done with act 2 you can use half your tokens and either catch up to the goal for today/tomorrow or get ahead. I used over 200 tokens and finished act 2 early,

    Just finished Act II now about 6 days ahead of deadline, with 155 tokens saved so far to boot, lots of time to hoard ready for Act III - happy days.

    I see it as an insurance policy, my schedule means I can either play about 4 times a day, or my work commitments might suddenly change and I can only play once a day. Hoarding allows me to get ahead of the curve straight away when a new act starts in case that happens.

    Ha, I just finished the Daily Challenge by mistake. I had forgotten to look to see what it was. Turns out the prize was 20 tokens.

    So now I have 364 tokens. Finished Act 2 prizes yesterday or so. Would be kinda cool if I could get 500 by start of Act 3.

    With the recent change increasing the chip and token drop rate from gamblers, I'm not planning to hoard until I reach the point where I'm not likely to reach another round of bonuts. So may 80 coins or so.

    I feel like there was one past event where they increased the drop rate for a short period, only to decrease it again later on, so I'm looking at this period as maybe the best period to hammer out some bonuts. In the end, though...hoarding...not hoarding...it probably makes no difference. I'm not worried about getting all the prizes in Act 3. I've had plenty of time to spare in the other Acts.

    Already have 3 rounds of bonuts this Act, and with the changes, I should be able to get 2 rounds a day, so looking at around a 40 donut haul overall by the end of the Act.

    I've stopped using coins on the slots and dice games until Act 3 and the release of the show tickets. I've got plenty of martini glasses and I've crafted all of the other items I want. Now I'm just waiting for the Safari Casino.

    I won't start hoarding coins until my crafting is up to level 3. Currently at 5/10. Everything else is done, all prizes so far, everything possible is crafted and Players club is at max level.

    I've done that several times, including this morning. My prize was 25 key chains though, so it's good. I finished the prizes already and got my first bonuts last night, so I'm saving my tokens for act 3. I have crafting up to level 3, but I'm close to the next chip prize so I'm waiting to do any more crafting until act 3 starts so I can use it there. I'm really surprised at how well I'm doing. When I first started I was having to use Moe's slots every day just to keep up. :D

    I don't see any point in hoarding. I got a bunch of bonus donuts after act 1 and I'm going to get a bunch now that I'm done act 2. There is no difference in doing it now or waiting until the end of act 3 to do it other then you get everything at once.

    I'm working on upgrading to craft level 3 now.

    How many show tickets are you getting via slots and dice games now?

    That's a good point. I have 20 from daily challenges already. I just don't see it being an issue cause I've had no trouble getting crafting items so far so I don't see why that would change so much in the final act.

    I think I'll do just that...both if I'm not getting extra donuts or having reached the crafting limit.
