    I think I've gotten a lot of pumpkins (480). Still short on candy bars only earned around 375 total so far. I spent some of those on the spooky house.

    Bars are the most rare item for me as well. I'm on pace to finish but it's going to be tight, even with most of the premium kids.

    Same here. I'm ok on pumpkins but the bars are slow in coming. Think I have enough for the hut but don't know if I'll get enough for the Grand Pumpkin too. Not worried about the pumpkin house since I have one from last year.

    Me. I think we are going to be crafting gold bags in phase 3. Even that will not make it for me at the current pace.

    I have enough pumpkins; still need 110 bars.

    I was thinking the same thing tho, the difference ratio between bronze bags and gold bags are to far apart, making it difficult to get the bars for most.

    Am I reading that correctly that gold bags will become a craft item?

    That sounds a lot like the pink/blue eggs to build a gold egg game mechanics from Easter, but worse in some ways.

    I occasionally get a bar in bronze and silver bags, if I'm lucky then 3 in a gold bag. Wish they were more consistent, but I guess that makes it more rewarding when you do get them?

    I hear ya. I still need about 40 chocolate bars before I'm able to craft the pumpkin. I wish we could trade in extra crafting items (like gummy bears, I have so many of those that it's ridiculous) for craft items we really need. I would be happy to trade like 100 gummy bears for 20 chocolate bars at the moment.

    It'll be nice when we can craft the gold bags. But I bet you all my donuts that even then I'll get no chocolate bars! Worst.Luck.Ever.

    Chocolate bars are going to be a very close call for me. I need 356 more to be able to craft everything left I want. The event is about half way over and I've collected 344 so far. 50 were spent on the spooky house leaving me with 294. Need 650 total to be able to craft both the regailien hut and the grand pumpkin.


    The other item that is going to be hard is fences at 570 more to craft everything I want.

    The UFO also keeps giving me candy corn and gummy bears. Like I never really get currency or other items

    I only have 20 Pumpkins left to go and they seem to be a bit more frequent for me. But the bars are still so rare for me and I am maybe getting 10 a day. I still have about another 150 to go before I can get the Grand Pumpkin because of this. Really wish I could get some from shooting down UFO's and stuff.

    I don't even know what I need to craft that Pumpkin House. I'm so tempted to use some of the donuts I have earned to get the Grand Pumpkin out of the way when it reaches a reasonable number.

    What is a reasonable number? I'm down to 28 donuts for the cost since im missing 56 candy bars...

    I would love to get some fence posts right now. I am up to my eyeballs in eggs. I just want to give poor Hugo his own place. I keep getting stuff for the pumpkin too. I might actually have my pumpkin ready to craft before spooky house.

    Possibly 20 donuts or less. I've earned only about 25 donuts through the event so I wouldn't want to cash in more than that. It's still like 90 donuts for me right now.

    I'm doing well on pumpkins but using chocolate bars on Spooky House really hurt my total, and it's not recovering very quick!

    I don't think I'm gonna get close to making it (choccie bars that is), anybody want to convince me differently?

    a fences eggs corn gummy choc pump
    required 1400 1000 950 800 700 350
    spent 600 300 250 100 50 0
    current 183 439 403 625 230 350
    needed 617 261 297 75 420 0

    Is there anything a freemium player with a paltry donut total can do to increase his chocolate bar tally?

    PS tried to make my table make more sense, but beaten by the input format. Suffice to say I've only made 280 choc with a requirement for 700, far worse than any other crafting thingy.

    Still need 168 choc bars for the Grand Pumpkin, had spent 50 for HTS, just to get one from a bag a few days later, didn't know you could. Only need 13 pumpkins, so not worried about them.
