Don't buy elves house (maybe?)

I bought the elf house thing for 60d and then realized it's the 4th prize. Or at least that's what it looks like. So annoyed at EA over that. So easy to get GCs it isn't worth it, IMO.

Love the rest of the update, but could've gotten the 3 new snowmen for the same price.


I bought 2 Elf houses. They're neat.

    They are... Can you use them separately at least, as opposed to scratchers which are 1-per 6 hours no matter how many KEMs?

    I wanted more than one, need to generate gifts to give (not worried about collecting the gift cards, they seem easy to get)

    :twisted:

    Yes, they are not combined like KEM, so each one will generate a gaggle of elves every 24hr....

    They've done this in the past and offered premium items as free rewards, so it shouldn't be a surprise that they're doing it again.

    This is why I bought 2, I'll stagger them so they'll be ready 12hours apart.

    I, too, bought one without realizing it was going to be the 6k prize. At first, I was a little pissed, but they are kinda cute. I might even buy another to stagger them eight hours apart.

    I was pondering whether to buy the donuts to get an elf house for gift gathering until I got the mall and saw it was the next prize. I'm glad I won't have to spend the money.

    I bought three and was pleased to see it was my next prize because I actually wanted to have four. They will generate money after the event is over, so not a waste of money. It is better than buying a bundle of presents.

    I have 4. They are set up to look like a small elf town near Santa's Village. I plan to put Santa's Workshop there too.

    The more the merrier.. Easiest way to find those presents, especially when people hide them like me :)

    I consider it a treasure hunt... :)

    btw to my friends, I am only leaving 1 present per town, so if you cant find it then I have probably run out.. :)

    Yeah, and the snowmen (I got Snowball and Bart) are on the 'free' wheel too*. I also mistakenly bought SLH when the confirmation got turned off at the beginning of Halloween. These events are tricky to do right, but the boards help a lot.

    *wait, are they? I'm still waiting for my first coin...

    Each one generates gift cards and gift bags to leave in friends' towns - both are good things, so the more the better!

    I bought quite a few (I have 6 total.) I wasn't counting gift card totals when I set them loose, but I did notice that they collected a little over 30 gift bags (so, an average of 5 gb per elf house.) Since the bags seem to be scarce, I'm pretty happy with that number since it means I won't have to spend donuts on bags for friends (plus, they'll generate moolah after the event.)

    So, personally, I am glad I got extras. Might even get some more, actually.
