LateComer, I left a bunch for you in return for the ones you left for me (kaargh) the other day.

I don't need any more eggs; I have all the prizes (gotten by illicit means, sorry to say; I didn't intend to - I liked all the cool stuff that some of you have that came out before there was an Android version and found a way to get it, but there was no way not to get the Whacking Day stuff with the cheat).

Also, apologies for my town - I expanded my land, which makes it hard to hunt for snakes. It was cheating again, for the sake of my sanity; I would otherwise spend the next few months tapping and tapping and dreaming of tapping, in order to get enough money to buy all of it. I have a bunch of eggs (honestly gotten) and will parcel them off to everyone I have as a friend to try to make up for it.

It looks like I have a pending friend request to you (donspadeoa) so if you confirm me I'd be happy to exchange up to a couple hundred eggs.

Egg-collection is back in business. Thanks so much to my egg donors. I finally got the coliseum and tatum and with a bit of luck and help I still might get the hotel. I just need to skip work and social life the next few days.

Anyway, i've left 40-50 eggs each for Fenris, donspadeoa, ChrisT1701, Labtrash, jesteck13, wombatninetynine, Trevorthea890 and Mahaloth. If some of you are approaching a prize threshold let me know and I'll prioritize you in my next egg drop.

Oh, and Jynxster, I have a friend request pending if you approve me (punkyb1980) we can exchange eggs.

I'm still about 700ish away from getting the special Willie character. I will gratefully accept any egg donations you guys are willing to spare.

Your streets were paved with eggs by the time I got there, but I was able to find enough grass for my last 61 eggs. You should get cracking so that other kind friends can leave you some more.

I've noticed this happen to me a couple times now but it appears that the snake-producing items like the stump and the rock normally work in 4 hour intervals but if a friend comes in and taps them for money and points, the time needed is lower, possibly based on when they are tapped. I hope I explained that adequately, but if these items are available for tapping when you visit someone, I recommend tapping them.

Unfortunate moment today. While distributing eggs to my Egg Buddy, I saw Milhouse crouching in fear of a snake. Unfortunately for Milhouse, it was directly in front of a gyrating Duff Man. That's right, Duff Man was molesting poor Milhouse. I think I need to call Wiggum and file a report.

Thanks, I did!

I'm further from the Willie character than I thought, and if the game ends in 2 days it's unlikely I'll make it. But that's ok. I still don't understand how some folks were already past the last prize last week!

I can't get the game to load up if I'm on the wifi at work, so I can only play a little in the morning, and more at night. I'll be spreading some eggs around later while I watch TV!

I don't know if anyone has mentioned it before, but there's an Android emulator called Bluestacks that you can use to play on your computer. It's a little slow, the "tapping" isn't the easiest thing with a moving target, and you can't zoom out or in, but it's an option if you can't use your phone or tablet. There's also an issue (for me, at least) when you try to leave the game - you click the arrow to leave, it asks you if you want to, you click yes... and then nothing happens. You can get out by closing the program, but the next time you use your phone or tablet it will say the game didn't save. If you wait about 30 seconds between your last action and closing, you should be safe to chose the play anyway option.

I may have mispoken too soon. For some reason, I seemed to have gotten a faster refresh time with these, but it didn't happen for me just now.

FYI, I've also got all the prizes and don't need more eggs, so give 'em to those that need 'em.

I have to say, whacking snakes is fun and all, but squashing zombies was somehow more... satisfying

I'm about 800 shy of the coliseum, then I'm done. I'll take whatever you can send my way.

Thanks.

When you click on money in a friend's Springfield it means that they have money waiting and when you click on it it starts the timer again. So you should click on the snake rocks or big money buildings. I can't find the message board again where I read that so no cite.

Oh, and if you're giving away free eggs I'm always open. I still have an outside chance at the motel with help but I know there are others who are more needy.

Lots and lots of eggs this morning. Thank you guys! And lots of eggs for me means lots of eggs for you.

I have a work event tonight, but will make sure to make a round to those of you most in need before bedtime.

I've got a bit of the little engine that could going on when it comes to reaching the hotel: "I think I can, I think I can..."

Thanks everyone! I've had a lot of eggs left for me over the last few days. I'm nowhere near getting any of the big prizes, but I do love whacking!

So, not sure who's leaving them all (270 last night alone!!), but thanks to all.

Here's my cite, number 4 and 5 on this page.
Quote:
4. If you’re tapping on buildings, tap on the most expensive ones you can see (those highest on the build list). It helps them regenerate faster in your friend’s town.

5. If you see any Snake Stumps, Rocks or Logs, tap on those – it helps them regenerate faster in your friend’s town, and that will help your friend’s whackable snake count.

I decided to build more housing instead of the penitentiary this morning. Guess I'm a liberal in Tapped Out too.

Left eggs for JohnnyQuad, Ladyroxi, and 1701. I'm now at 12468 and I'm so close to that Sleezy Motel that I can taste it. What was the ammount of snakes that needed to be whacked for the final box of donuts at the end? I can't find it in the thread.

For every 1000 snakes you get after the motel, you get a Whack Box which gives you a chance of money or donuts. There are 10 Whack Boxes in total, so you'd need to get 22,500 snakes to get the last one.

Whack Box odds:

I tried to sign my name in eggs, but only got the HA to fit in the small area. Then I just threw some more around.

Someone "signed' one of my open areas with a rather suggestive pic last night.

As for what it was, let's just say when I tapped it to get snakes, it got longer.

I went thru every one of my 90+ friends last night, trying for at least 4 or 5 snakes in each. It took HOURS. No wonder I'm behind.

I saw the HA but I couldn't figure out who it came from. I'm not a detective like Batman... I'm more of a scientist, like Batman.

I have all the items, so I'm trying to help as many people as I can in these last few day. I was able to look to see how many eggs each of my friends have by sending Lisa to whack in other towns - it shows how many each player has accumulated - but it's not up to date. I did two drops to Intergalactic Gladiator and it didn't update after the first, even though the all their eggs had been whacked.

So, I'm wondering if we can make a closer real-time list, with just the Tapped Out user name and how many eggs you have and what prize you're shooting for (maybe with a friendly reminder of how many eggs you need), or if you no longer need any eggs. Something like:

kaargh - no eggs needed

or

karrgh - 12128 - hoping for motel (12500 eggs)

I just don't want to be handing off eggs to people who don't need them.
