1) Whoever the brilliantly crazy person who wrote out "eggs!" with eggs, you gave me a great laugh. I admire you and would love to shake your hand--how long did that take you???

I have about 180 eggs to give away--who needs them?

I'm making a push for the motel, so I can still use some as well.

Also, I hesitate to do this, but I got a buddy of mine (who's not a Doper..yet) hooked on this and he's a n00b. If anyone wants to add him, he's sweetmc

Bah. I've got too much spare time so i downloaded the game too. Still plays like farmville to me, and its hard to just let things run suboptimally for me but the quest/story is amusing. In game name is Omenesia.

Dumped a ton on your town. I have more if someone's looking.

I was actually attempting to make a funny by spelling out EGG and having a line with an arrow (all made of eggs) leading to a single, solitary egg. Glad you liked it though.

Some dropped a few eggs my way, so you get the spoils.

I am fewer than 100 eggs from the motel, so I am good for eggs now. I will easily reach my goal with snake tasks and my snake rock. Thanks for all your help, Straight Dope No Homers Club!


I will continue to pass out eggs as I get them.


I will miss the way the snakes weave through my hedge maze. It entertains me a great deal more than it should.

Ever see someone drop eggs while you are looking at your town? I literally saw you place those eggs. It was weird.

One day I had about 40 Kangs surrounding a wilderness area, which was more amusing than annoying. The past couple of days it's been one of my houses getting replaced by another building. If I scroll away then go back, it's either the house again or a different building. And sometimes when I try to visit friends, I don't get any town but the default Other Springfield.

I just got to shirtless Willie tonight(thanks Mahaloth) I'm not sure if I can get to the next prize, but I'd like to try. Accepting all offers of eggs, and I have lots of open land to make placing them a breeze!

I'm still playing and leaving eggs with those who ask for them. Do not need any in return. Any newcomers should feel free to add me (Punkyb1980), I usually pay all my neighbors a visit on a daily basis.

Dumping what I've got on you (about 80). I'm about as far from the motel as you are so would love some in return if you have them.

I just paved your streets in eggs. They should soon be paved in the blood of the innocent. The children will cry as the elderly will whail for their loss.

Thanks to everyone who sent eggs. I don't know how many prizes I can collect in the short time I have left, but I want to make a push for them.

I added a few people who's id's I saw in the thread. I'll send eggs to everyone I can.

I have hundreds of eggs to unload, and wish to reciprocate with someone. I've tried to unload them as fast as I got them, but EA didn't make it easy to lay eggs.

Razabradley; shoot me a PM or post to let me know with whom I should reciprocate.

If you want to send some of them my way I would take them. I want eggs and I am not proud. I got a late jump on the game and only have 200 snakes so far.

I'm NAF1138 there too. Sending you a friend request.

ETA: I still have over 1500 eggs.

I'm getting close (within about 1200 of the motel--so getting close to "buy it with donuts if all else fails" range) so I won't turn some down.

I'll be home in a couple of hours to clear eggs out of my Springfield. Wish I could play on my breaks at work!

Thank you much! That got me over the 400 snake mark. If I really push I might make 1000 tomorrow.

Off the topic of snakes for a few, I seem to be stuck.

I can't build the Java Server or the Gilded Truffle. I've done all the Comic Book Guy's quests (except the "Sell comics" one since it hasn't offered me the quest--and I've sold comics, just in case, anyway) and I'm past level 14. Ditto with Dredrick.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Where you are in your quest line may be nothing like your level. And I'm not sure where you are in your quest line, so I'd suggest checking out a guide:

http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/9043283.page

Ad for Tatum, the game doesn't prompt you to build the Coliseum. You have to grab it from your inventory.

I hope that helps.

It does, but even by that guide, I should be getting prompted to build the Java Server and the Truffel

(to clarify, I got Tatum, but he wants the Gilded Truffle, which I also can't build )

I got held up at the Guilded Truffle and Java Server as well. I just got past those a few days ago but now I'm circling back to the tasks that lead to King Toots. I've had a space reserved next to Moe's for quite a while in anticipation of that.

Glad to help.

Also, you should know there's currently a mix-up with the hospital. You'll get about halfway through Dr. Hibbert's quest line and it will stop. Don't worry, it will pick up again after you build Burn's mansion.

Yeah, if you need buildings or quests, always free everyone up at once and look for the speech bubble. You will usually get one this way.

How much time do you have on your hands? If you look at my city, I've got two rows of brown houses (not sure how many), but as long as I'm just sitting there watching TV or something, those two rows of houses bring in $150 every three minutes. Call it $1500 an hour since I don't actually sit there and start at the tablet the entire hour (in a perfect world it would be $3000 an hour) and I have other things to do. Plus, during those times, I give every one short jobs. Usually an hour or less. If I'm just waiting for something to happen (like something has 10 minutes left), I'll even give Ned and Apu the 45s jobs over and over.

Use farms of other house colors if you're not going to be around as much. The brown houses give you money every 3 minutes, the others are a few hours.

Right now, I'm trying to steal some ideas from other people and rearrange my city. I don't like the way it's set up and I really like how other people have their cities set up. The first thing I need to do is buy some more land, if for no other reason, so I have some space to work.

Also, I have about 500 eggs or so if anyone wants to trade.

I had a "farm" of houses for the first 25 levels or so, then I reduced it so it looks more like a subdivision. It was uglier then, but it did warrant me enough cash to advance.

I suggest Purple and Blue houses, as they fit my schedule where I would check a few times during the day and get money. I'd avoid Orange houses, as they cost a fortune. White houses, too, though I like their look the most and use them as decorations in town.

I hated the look of my farm for a long time, but I think it is essential in the early levels. Eventually you get some money makers and can reduce them. Also, send the people on the shortest possible tasks you can. It's better to do short quests if you check often.

I always check the clock and estimate the next time I'll likely be free at all, then set everyone to tasks about that time.

And wait, sometimes days, to buy anything.

I feel that blue houses are the best value, at least they make back their cost more quickly and don't take up a lot of room. I got rid of most of my brown houses as I don't just sit there and click on money-I spend enough time doing my daily actions.

I found this article on the pros and cons of different houses.
