Do you remember your first...

I dont remember my first neighbour
My first non tutorial purchase with donuts was accidentally speeding up the brown house (before I knew about donut confirmation :evil: )
Technically my first event was Valentines 2013 but I didn't really play much back then, so the first REAL event that I took part in was Whacking Day! :D
First donut purchase... hasn't happened! I'm still freemium, but with donut's I've collected my first big purchase was Otto a few months back.

    Do you remember your first:
    Non-tutorial purchase with donuts
    Donut purchase, thus moving you out of freemium status

    There are other firsts, so whatever you can remember or think fondly of.

    Me, I really only remember my first neighbor - Tiggerlily (I visit daily, I promise! just don't always have something to tap). I think my first event was the Halloween with the Mayans. That was in the Springfield I lost. (Oh how I miss you, Mapple Store, Howard's Flowers, Butterfat's and several Whacking Day items/skins!)

    This whole post makes my month and I remember nothing. I remember nothing about anything. I love this post though.

    My first neighbour was my friend who introduced me to tapped out.

    My first purchase with donuts was the money purhcase for 21 donuts - I didn't know that donuts were valuabel! XD

    First event was christmas 2012. Best. Event. Ever. Although I didn't really participate - got very little santa coins. First real event would be whacking day - tlhough I didn't really participate in that one either! Or Halloween 2013 XD so forst reeeal event was Christmas 2013. Mr. Costington = Best. Event character. Ever.

    Krustylu studios was the first building I bought, once I had done my first purchase.

    I dont remember my first neighbour but I dont think I have them anymore (I think I might have accidentally deleted them :( Wish I hadnt ...)
    My first purchase with donuts (like Juliet) was speeding up the construction of something (cant remember what) before I found out about donut confirmation :evil:
    First event was the tail-end of Halloween last year (I'd just started playing); the first full event was Thanksgiving a few weeks later
    My first official purchase was Otto and the schoolbus yesterday (freemium player who has lost a lot of donuts thru tapping too frantically :evil: )

    Great topic! I probably remember nothing correctly, and I restarted the game as well which makes matters even more confusing. However, I'm pretty sure my oldest neighbor is the wonderfully named AmandaHugKis. She won't see this post since I found the name on another forum well before joining this one. Who wouldn't want a neighbor with such a name?!

    The only thing I remember is my first event being Halloween 2013! It was a great time to start playing the game. :mrgreen:

    First event was Christmas 2013, I didn't have any friends yet so didn't complete the event. Did get ClausCo, the Yeti, and Mr. Plow skin though as well as several of the gift box prizes up to the Skating Rink, which is the one I really wanted.

    First purchase with donuts was, I believe, a Homer Buddha because I mistakently thought I would actually get the gold sculpture to place in my town! Oops.

    First donut purchase was around January or February, and the first premium item I bought with those donuts was Duff Stadium.

    Don't remember my first neighbor, I posted in a thread here to get some and got a whole bunch of friend requests rather quickly.

    I started playing Mid-December 2013, so Christmas was my first event. Even at a lower level I was happy with the event.

    My first neighbor (other than family, who I asked to start a town so I could have some neighbors) found me I don't know how! I still have him, he comes and goes but I'm keeping him because he opened my eyes to having neighbors I didn't actually know. (This is the first game of this type for me.)

    I didn't realize how precious donuts were in the beginning - I spent a lot speeding up tasks. Then they were GONE and no new donuts showed up! What the heck! It was probably only 2 weeks before I bought some donuts. I spent the early ones on characters so I could make money. Can't remember which ones, but it was a good strategy.

    My first redesign was within the first month. My town had no specific layout, so I looked at what was coming in the later levels and planned a town based on everything available up to that point. It had a lot of empty areas for a while, while I waited to level up. I still have that layout now and am probably due for a nuke. Seems like a huge undertaking.

    The first time I felt rich was during Stonecutter's. Because I had everyone frequently on the short tasks, and not having to keep buildings untapped for neighbors, I was making a lot of money. I am up to 9 mil. now, need another 2 or 3 before I can buy the Sit and Spin. I don't want to spend it all in case there is an update soon.

    This has been fun to think about! Thanks, OP.

    My first neighbor was my girlfriend who got me into the game.

    First use of donuts was accidentally speeding up a task

    First event was technically whacking day since I start tapping when that was going on. Missed out on the last 3 prizes. But my first completed event was Halloween 2013.

    First purchase with donuts was during Halloween. It was either the zombies so I could complete the set or the Ray Gun to get Kodos. Don't remember which was first. I became full premium after Christmas.

    My first neighbor was Other Springfield, duh! :D (I honestly don't remember haha)

    My first non-tutorial donut use was my nephew playing around rushing buildings with my earned donuts because he's too young to know what he's doing. (LOL)

    My first event was Christmas 2012!

    My first REAL donut purchase was Frink!

    I don't remember any of that except for the first event. I started in last March right before Wacking Day began, which in my opinion is still my favorite event.

    First Neighbour: started what I intended as a feeder town under my wife's name, but then she took it over and is still playing!

    First Donut Spend: like most, an accidental speed up. First intentional was Burns limo, I think.

    First Event: Halloween 2012 - always will have a soft spot for it!

    First Donut Purchase: Never, except for buying some in my wife's town so I could get her Otto as a birthday surprise last year.

    Fun thread! Thanks!

    First neighbour was my Hubby. Don't remember who exactly was my next neighbour was as I had about half a dozen friend requests (only two of whom I still have).

    First doughnut spend was on Otto last month (wish I had waited now!).

    First event was the tail end of Thanksgiving '13, first full event was Christmas.

    Never spent a single penny on doughnuts, happy enough remaining freemium.

    your first:
    Neighbor: No, I added random names at first. I added my boyfriend fairly early on. My first neighbor from this forum was johncolombo.
    Non-tutorial purchase with donuts: I think it was Bumblebee Man.
    Event: Fourth of July 2013 (most of it; I missed the beginning.) First big event was Halloween.
    Donut purchase, thus moving you out of freemium status: Well, that depends. I guess it would technically be in late December, 2013, with a gift card. A few more gift cards followed. However, I spent my own money on the stonecutters.

    Neighbor: "Other Springfield." Other than that, I posted in an "Add Me" thread, so I couldn't begin to remember who was first.

    Donut spend: I sped something up by accident, pretty much like everyone else. Other than that, I think I bought a Jet Bike.

    Event: Easter 2014. I had no idea what I was doing. Didn't get anything but 3 easter fences.

    Donut Purchase: I got a $10 Google Play card for half off right around the same time. Bought the Gil sale of 132 donuts + $10k. The other $2 I spent on scratchers. Got Otto and the news van with the donuts I got.

    Neighbor: My first neighborino was in November 2012. I had been playing for two months resisting getting neighbors, but finally succumbed once I realized I was becomming a seriously addicted completionist. He was a random who had a great town, he's still on my list, rarely plays any more, never visits, and I'll likely keep him on my list for the nostalgia.
    Non-tutorial purchase with donuts: Halloween 2012 event items. First was the cemetary if I recall correctly. Bought my first (and only) truckload, been boatloads ever since.
    Event: Halloween 2012, still the best event IMHO, what with the zombies, toilet paper, eggs, and the klaven...
    Donut purchase, thus moving you out of freemium status: Halloween 2012

    Great topic!

    Do you remember your first:

    Either my wife or my daughter. They were both on iOS and got neighbors right away. I was on Android and had to wait.

    Non-tutorial purchase with donuts

    Early on I kept rushing stuff with spare donuts, before I realized that wasn't really a good idea and started saving. Then I accidentally bought a Homer Buddha, receiving an Orange Tree. That was disappointing.

    My first deliberate premium item was Lincoln & his cabin during the July 4 2013 mini-event.


    Whacking Day.

    Donut purchase, thus moving you out of freemium status

    First Golden Scratch-R was in June 2013. One a week every week since, with one exception - see below.
    First fixed amount of donuts bought was last Christmas, when the Gil deal meant Scratch-Rs weren't available, so I bought a dozen instead.
