    4000 away from last prize but I've hoarded a hundred prospectors so far for the next stage, should give me a good bump when it drops.

    I have two side towns that I tested yesterday. One had stockpiled 50 prospectors to "give" ... (no other neighbors) ...
    I drained the general store as much as possible in each town before and after the "test", made sure to collect all ten every time, and touched nothing but those 50 prospectors in either town while testing. I collected all the prospectors in the receiving town as soon as I dropped the prospectors from the sending town.

    The end result, after cashing in all the axes and hats I had received during the test, was:
    Sending town - gained 210 clues (with an additional (net) gain of 34 axes and 24 hats that I couldn't get rid of yet)
    Receiving town - gained 500 clues (with an additional (net) gain of 144 axes and 182 hats that I couldn't get rid of yet)

    I do NOT know whether the "profit" for the sending town would have been higher (or lower) if the receiving town had NOT collected the prospectors at all. Maybe it would have been? But I had expectations that stockpiling and dropping 50 prospectors would result in more than 210 clues.


    Thanks for doing this test for us, I have been wondering if hoarding is worthwhile, but it seems to have limited returns. I'm saving a fair number of prospectors for a dear neighbour of mine who has disappeared from my list in the hopes that I can help her out if the glitch gets sorted out, but otherwise I'll be sending out my prospectors based on your information.

    Back to the topic - 24849. Will get the rib hut as soon as the day's cap is lifted.
    Always looking to add active forum members! But please PM me first.

    I just got Wes' Rib Hut & it triggered collect more clues. Does anyone know if EA is changing to bonuts or is this the beginning of the crafting with resources phase that's been mentioned?

    Will likely unlock prize 7 tonight. Which is that building. As previously stated, only able to play twice a day - so normally I may have been further ahead. But with no bonuts, doesn't seem worth it to be done.

    I unlocked the last prize accidentally. I was waiting to cancel out this Daily Tasks (I keep getting this garbage I don't want) in hopes of finding donuts, but I accidentally completed it. Ugh. I'm not buying donuts for this event because the bonus ones are all gone or broken.

    120 away from the last prize.... not long now.


    (on a different note, instead of itchy/scratchy floating above my kwik-e-mart when the ticket is ready, I currently have the head of Patty... :lol: gotta love little glitches)

    I still don't get how I'm so far behind. I send all characters on mission every 4 hours, 4-5 times a day.
    I always tease for the largest prizes. Always clear bandits. And visit my neighbors.

    are you buying stuff at the general store until it runs out, or just the 4 items to get the daily prize?

    Got it now. Now I'm going to hoard and just do 4 small clues to get the daily and save the rest for act 2.

    How far along are you?

    Well, if you look at me from the side you might say about eight months.

    Just got the bank tonight and have it building now. I might be going down to the last day this time but I should make it. I'm about 800 short on the daily total, but I have a nice reserve of hats and picks. Just waiting until tomorrow to make sure I get the daily prize.

    Just checked my totals again and I'm actually a little ahead. Hooray! :-)
