    Just finished my neighbour run, only 200 probes to go. Should be able to make that easily. Might even do it tonight if I stay up late enough. :)

    I'm really annoyed about this - yesterday the donut torture device was showing as 5400 probes on the chart, so in the evening I hit that amount - I received a GOLD BAG!!! The chart has since changed to 8000 probes for the prize

    Is this a bug? Has anyone else had the problem? I have read elsewhere that the prize was only 5400 probes, so I can't be the only one!!

    I have no chance of hitting 8000+ probes before the end, and I've literally been on the game 4 or 5 times a day including the 90 probes from neighbour visits, I don't understand how people are able to do this so soon, or at all

    Not a bug. Sorry to hear you got confused. Others have also. The blue circle around the prize and the little bump arrow under it are the indicators of what prize you are on.

    See my post just made here for one example of how someone could make the 8050 probe target without spending a donut.

    I going to make the target in both my towns. I only had 5 kids in my B-Town until the other day when I got Rod/Todd.

    5400 was actually for the gold bag. Now it's too late to check, but before you hit 5400 the DTD was locked and the last gold bag was blue-circled. Now the DTD is blue-circled. 8050 has always been the right amount.

    If you really want it you have some choices. Donuts, of course. Or it will become a crafting item on the 20th. But it will take a lot of treats to get it. I'd suggest working as hard as you can and tomorrow see how many donuts it will take to finish it off. Good luck!

    I only have 1400 probes. How many probes do you need for the torture device? No matter what, it's too hard to get many probes. Other than squishing the aliens and the 90 you get from neighbors, what more can you honestly do?
    Would you advice to get the license for 90 donuts?

    Im not even at the mutant peackock

    I have 2000 and something for now.

    If you want to know how did i get that much so far 3 words Rigel 7 Portals

    Is your portal giving out 8 aliens? Is it supposed to? Mine is only


    giving out 6 for some reason...


    I haven't used anything but sqwishing mine and neighbors and I am like 700 away

    It's going to be tight for me. I need another 1000 probes for the DTD and there's 1 day 17 hours left.

    Nice! :mrgreen:

    You mean there isn't one already? :mrgreen:

    And I know people have posted that they don't see how freemium players can get the UBO. :roll: +6 instead of +3 may be one way; per Addicts.

    Maybe these titles should be "No way I can get foo in time", with an explanation of their game and game play so we can help them out. Wishful thinking.

    150 probes away from DTD! Guess it's time to start hoarding...

    Neighbor-eenos: I'll have accumulated gremaliens ready for drop off after new set of prizes is released. Please PM if you would rather have them now. :D
