2013 christmas vs 2012 christmas

I preferred last years. I don't like this new format of prizes for a certain amount collected. I preferred being able to purchase what I want using the currency, and then getting to trade in the extra at the end of the event.

    This year. I like that it is more elaborate, and appears that we are getting a lot more.

    I prefer this year's content and the extra little details in the design but I prefer last year's format.

    I miss the Santa coins but I was new then too so it could be the nostalgia talking. I remember trying like asterisk to get the krabaplle apt because I wanted to buy the Xmas skin. I never did make it that christmas but I did get it today.

    I wasn't here last year but after seeing all the houses (like Flanders, Willie's shack, and so on) I was hoping there'd be new skins for the houses. Oh well.

    I liked last year's system in terms of how Christmas lights were handled with Santa coins. Not huge on the gift cards/presents this year (nice concept, but..) However, I like this year's buildings and how most will be earned through gift cards and community rather than purchasing. While I splurge a lot on doughnuts, I'm safe from having to spend my actual money in which I'm saving up for the diamond ($300,000 away, but not going to buy it right away anyway). So in that sense, this year is nice that I don't have to worry about spending that and being further behind.

    I liked the Christmas coins so you could save up for what you want and not what ea decide you should have at each mile stone of tickets. But I do like the snow back even though by January you're totally fed up of it and want to see green again.

    I too prefer the Santa coins from last year, however I think the Christmas update this year is also very good.

    As I am on Android I didnt get this game till early this year, dont suppose barney's bowlerama is available this year? Its about the only building I want, working in one myself! Just cant spend 250 dohnuts on it, you all know from the episode where homer works in one that it dont pay enough to splash out on premium items!!!

    I like them both. X-mas bells and lights are a nice addition this year. But I do prefer the Santa Coins and earning the decorations for the houses. I think the snow looks better this year than last, and everything seems more colorful. And more prizes is always good, even though I have no more land to place them.
