Candy Cane/s By Depot Tree = Please Drop Gift Bags?

Prev1
Sounds like a plan - I'll be one of those without a candy cane as I have enough giftcards already (still yet to spin all my tokens though - saving them up).

Now the only thing is how to make this idea well known. Place it in our sigs maybe?

    Not the Candy Cane Cooling Towers - though they'd be nice & visible :shock:- just a regular old Candy Cane (see pic). I would have chosen something larger & more noticeable, but I wanted to keep it inexpensive for those that can't afford something more expensive. It is rather small, though. Hmmmm. :?:

    How about a circle of candy canes around the metal tree?

    One thing I've learned the hard way with this wheel is that you don't really know how many gift cards are going to be enough. :(:lol::D

    Yeah, I'm currently at around 120K cards, and have 61 tokens saved up. The only wheel item I have left is Helter Shelter, but I hope to increase my chances of winning with consecutive spins.

    Hopefully, that will work for you. :D With that many spins, you'd THINK it would. :-)


    I've tried all kinds of things, but my two items are surrounded by money, and I rarely even land on gift cards. How funny that being "surrounded by money" is a bad thing! :lol: It seems like folks either have Claus Co, Helter Shelter, Snow Monster or Ice God as their last item. I think there was someone earlier that actually THREE items left to get and they were high up there in the gift card count, too. It could always be worse. :lol:

    How about this? :lol:

    (Sorry about the big images. Not sure what the correct size to make these is)

    Many people have candy canes in their landing zones and don't need more gift bags. It's a Christmas tree! Of course there will be candy canes.


    I think what you need is something completely arbitrary to grab people's attention. What about Chalmer's Onda? Or Stolen Bumper Cars?

    You don't think my note is subtle enough? LOL :lol: I like the Stolen Bumper Cars idea. :thumbup:

    This is so frustrating that all I can do now is laugh.

    Just used 12 spins, still no Clause Co.!
    Used money to put candy canes around the tree.
    Experience put me into "Level Bonus"
    Spent $100,000 to get the 3 donuts.
    Next level 1,002,435 xp

    I too am just gonna keep spinning! Might break down and shell out the ridiculous price for tokens at the last minute, but if that fails I hope I don't follow through with the urge to throw my new ipad out the window.

    Good luck everyone!

    Please don't throw that new ipad out the window! :shock:

    I just want to make sure that we can identify those friends that NEED those gift bags. A lot of people who cleared the wheel around 50k or whatever will just ASSume that those of us in the 100s have cleared ours & won't leave us any. It seemed like during the Halloween event it was easier to help each other out than it is during the Christmas event.

    May the odds be ever in your favor. . . :D

    I have **** bunch of stop signs on my landing zones to indicate that I am not in need of bag/coins needed for the wheel. I am also going to leave my gift bags sitting there in the hopes that people look at the message not to drop the bags in my Springfield and instead and drop them to others who are still in need.

    I have been trying to drop bags into accounts which have yet to reach 30,000. I don't know of any way to know if those who are over 50,000 are still in need of bags.

    Really like the stop sign thing!

    I've gotten all neighbors above 30k who are still able to accept gift bags. Just looking for a quick way to know who is still needing them to clear the wheel. HCoinslot recommended seeing if the townsfolk are still hunting Homer & Lisa, which seems like at least a good place to start. :-)

    WHOO HOOO!!!

    Got It! Had 5 spins this morning. Started the wheel on Clause Co. by moving it backwards.
    Gave it a spin, ended up 4 spots away.
    Moved Clause Co 4 spots from the start, ended up 2 spots away.
    Moved Clause Co. 2 spots from the start, and got it!
    Cheating?? Who cares, I've cleared the darn wheel in all 3 towns and new ipad is safe!!
    Thank you Lisaseviltwin for talking me down off the wall!!

    Just a note though, I started looking for Clause Co. (since it was my nemesis) in my neighbors' towns and was shocked how many are still missing this elusive item. Needless to say my 38 gift bags didn't go far. I must say that this event has made me feel like the Grinch who stole gift cards! At least with Whacking Day you could put back in what you collected.

    I kinda feel bad leaving this little"club", but dont give up, and I'll check in to see how the rest of you are doing.
    Good luck to you all!

    I personally have a plea written in snow-covered shrubbery to indicate that I am still battling The Wheel. :(

    I didnt catch the snow message but I've been dropping 5 daily and will continue to till event ends hehe.
    Sorry I've not had much time for anything but visiting in-game. Seems after my update on mom she took a bad turn and we took some up residence at the hospital with a neutropenic warning.
