    When I was new to the game and the buildings started to take 24hours to build I did speed a couple up!


    I don't anymore! So my answer was sometimes!

    I voted no, even though I have used them to speed a couple things up in the past. Never again.

    Nope. The nice thing about leaving the iPad at home when I go to work is that I then don't mind having to wait a chunck of time while something builds.

    Not to pay for it, but you can spend 3 to elapse the time before you can buy another one.

    Its an instant thing too you dont get a chance to cancel it so careful with the scratch- R

    And I have used it to speed up things once or twice but not i just like to enjoy to game as im coming to the end of the story line so i refuse to rush through anything again

    I think I've used donuts to speed up, like 2 or 3 times.
    Not anymore.

    Hindsight.

    I answered honestly with sometimes. Although today I see it was more of an accident of sorts. Ignorance really.

    When I first downloaded this "free" game, I had never played any type of sim game like it before. I had no clue that donuts would be so hard to come by. I sped up the first however many tasks of the game with the donuts they handed out at the beginning for free.

    Then very shortly down the road I made another giant noob mistake. I thought I was buying donuts with money when what I was doing was buying money for donuts.

    If I could go back in time I would implore myself to hold onto donuts and use them exclusively for premium content.

    i did a few times at the beginning because i was getting 10 donuts a week or more through the weekly mystery box and i thought that was normal and would keep going. i learned the hard way, luckily i didnt spend too many doing that.

    Poorly worded question. I did when I started playing, so I voted yes. I wanted some of the limited halloween content and wasn't going to have the church built in time to get the heck house facade.

    Had I realized how precious those doughnuts were, I never would have done that. And I have never wasted any doughnuts that I paid for so frivolously.

    For me it's a balance and really depends on my schedule. I only speed up buildings, not tasks. I rarely speed up the full 24 hours for a building. How much I speed it up depends on what time of the day I started building. For instance, if I started building at 8:00 pm, I'll let it go through the night and I may speed up the last 10-12 hours the following morning.

    I debated on it one or twice until I accidentally hit it on a very short task, and all I could hear in my head was Homer screaming " Undo! Undo! Undo!... Whew." Pretty much cured me.

    I haven't yet but have hovered over the button. My fricken corn is my tempatation now- but three more days, why rush now?
    I was tempted because I was a couple thousand dollars from my "bonus" 25 level and my grove was almost done. Thankfully, I remembered that I don't get any good glitches; levelled up and got my one donut.
    I'm a donut chicken. I have over 200 of them and still can't bring myself to spend them in case something better comes along lol! I have bought Moleman- because he's Moleman and Squeaky teen- I don't know why... I'm debating between Frink's and Krusty Studio but want to wait until the V day stuff is done in case there is something I want in the update...
