    We are getting double the rewards which might mean double the chances to get bags but the bags themselves are not going to count as double no

    Probably not... I bet EA hasn't even made the bulk of the prizes yet. The community prizes should be an actual community motivator so it actually makes sense for us to not win all the prizes. (Though 1 out of 5 is steep. If I were the game dev, I would make 3 out of 5 the realistic goal and use the last two prizes as a motivator. Or maybe just have 3 community prizes and have us win 1 out of 3. No point having 5 prizes when we're only going to get one.)

    Yes Guy will probably come out later for donuts. I don't see any point in releasing any of the other items ever. No one is drooling over Candy Cane power plant.

    I still want to say we got them all though.

    Of course we will.

    Once most of us start knocking prizes off the spinning wheel, the slots are replaced with gift card prizes. Those will start bumping up the total.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they don't let us get them all on purpose and make a story line out of it.

    That may be a plausible theory; though, I still don't know how much it will speed things up by. How many gift cards do you win with the wheel? 20? 100?

    The amount of gift cards collected isn't what is being counted in the community total, it's the amount of gift bags given.

    Ebenezer Burns could have a great questline. But he would only make sense for christmas, so either a christmas miracle will happen or he'll return next year.

    They probably slowed the tally down from the Halloween one. Didn't we get all the prizes a couple of days before the end? Also there was so much talk on how it wasn't an actual count since it went up the same amount each time, that The creators were probably like..we'll show them what happens when they speculate.

    He started one of many threads arguing whether the counter was real or not. I agree with Sami, I think the counter is still rigged, but is now rigged to scare us into playing more. They are trying to give these items away for free, why would you think we are not going to get any? That's silly.

    It's not looking good right now. I am worried that they will make us pay donuts for them, but I kind of want to get Santa's Village by the end of the event.

    Halloween was my first event, so help me out here.

    Have all the events had community prizes?
    Has there ever been a time the final goal wasn't reached?

    Just curious.
