Has anyone else found that the free baskets are drying up? I've not had a single one today so I'm nowhere near getting another box.
I've also had none today or yesterday.

    I got a pink and blue a few days ago but I haven't gotten any since.

    It's odd, i've complained all day today about baskets being impossible to find... and then i get three in the space of 2 minutes (2 pink, one blue), is it coincidence? or is someone listening to us and changing the odds slightly behind the scenes of the game? More to the point, is that last one actually possible without the need for an update to show up on the loading screen?

    Sounds like crafty EA are trying to tempt us to buy them... No chance I'm wasting 10 donuts on something that might give me an OK prize then vanishes!

    I've gotten a total of zero for the entire event and I play a couple time a day.

    I got quite a few at first (as did my son). Once we both cashed in our first ones replacements dried up. I finally got a pink that I needed just a couple of minutes ago but that's it. I'm wondering if the more you cash in the lower the odds get. Too bad, I refuse to pay donuts for a one-time use item ... anymore :?

    Please everyone place your baskets a little distance from one another. Placing them to closely could result in your neighbor getting the wrong basket, hence getting the wrong color eggs, which will probably result with them skipping your baskets completely.

    I've only had one since the event started and it was blue but I'm also a blue egg player so it's not much use.

    I got a pink one on the first day and haven't got any since...it's like they know I'm too cheap to spend donuts on them so they're not gonna give me any more.

    Drying up???!?! The event's only been going for 72 hours or so. Are you mental?

    How do we get them other than buying them? I bought one of each and was annoyed that they were taken away when i tapped them.

    They can be recieved, though rarely, from zapping bunnies in your town

    You can get them randomly when you hit the bunnies, which I did a few times over the past couple of days but today - nothing.

    Day three and still no baskets. I'm thinking this is all a joke. Yes, I've checked my inventory as well.

    I have cleaned the bunnies out of my springfield probably 15-20 times a day since the event started and not a single basket for me.

    My son who plays maybe 2-3 times a day has found 3...

    I'm Apple he is Samsung... That must be it :lol:

    We definitely need higher odd of finding baskets in our cute little bunnies. I bought 2 initially not knowing that we would get them for free and not knowing that they would disappear. I'm not going to waste donuts on baskets.

    So if people are not buying or getting free baskets, how is this a neighborly game?

    I really hope EA changes the frequency of getting baskets.

    Oh yes, this. I clicked the wrong color once when one of my neighbors placed 4 baskets in a cluster. At this point, I just bypass baskets like that. But I like to share because I'm done with pink prizes so I really want to give my tons of pinks away for blues.
