Hey there Lil Rigellions. 🙂
I see a lot of players panicking that they just don’t seem to keep up with the totals. So I am hoppin on in here with a breakdown of ways you can earn the Ray Guns available in your game each day.
So you want those new Phase 2 Personal Prizes? Not sure how though? Let’s break this down a bit.
LIL RIGELLIAN ALIENS
These lil aliens are running, giggling, and possessing people all over your town. So what do you do to make the most of them? You play at a pace that suits YOU.
The Lil Rigellians spawn 1 every 5 minutes in your town for a MAX of 50.
That is 12 Lil Rigellian Aliens every hour.
Every 4 hrs and 10 mins, your town will MAX at 50.
30 more can still be earned in overflow, so in 2 1/2 hours the “bank” will be full. EA took away this option for whatever reason. Sorry. Still possible though to hit the numbers by going in every 4 hrs.
What on earth does this all mean? Well, it means that you really can wait up to just over 6 1/2 hours before returning to your game to squish Rigellians, and still get the full impact of the 80 Squishes. (You just got to give the game a few moments to sync up after clearing the 50 before it will release the 30 from the “bank”)
Each Squish gives you 2 Ray Guns each. So 140 Ray Guns every 6hrs and 40 mins
To make it a lil easier on Math…let’s just say you go in every 6 hours. So 72 Rigellians every 6 hours, which translates into 288 Rigellians a day, which will in turn give you 576 Ray Guns daily.
NEIGHBOR LIL RIGELLIAN RAY GUNS
Every 24 hours you are allotted 90 actions (or taps if you will) in your neighbors. This tap will be subtracted from every time you squish a Lil Rigellian, Shoot down a UFO, or happen to cross a non updated neighbor and tap their $$ icons. So make sure you use them wisely and to the best of your ability. ONLY squish Rigellians first. Once you have all 90, then go ahead and get those UFO’s and other items.
90 actions daily that award you ONE Ray Gun each. So 90 Ray Guns daily from just visiting your neighbors.
So those are your basics of earning potential for the game. A total of 666 Ray Guns Daily. You would think Devil Flanders had a part in that total. Lol. (You only need 645 to make the daily limits to reach the goal.)
Now I am sure many of you still panic you are behind or prefer to be safer than sorry when it comes close to the deadline. So what else can you do? This part will depend a lil more on YOU and YOUR neighbors.
TRICK OR TREAT BAG RAY GUNS
Many of you have noticed that you can win Ray Guns in the Treat Bags (Similar to the Probes). These will vary depending how many you get to pop out from Rigellian squishes, neighbor visits, Spooky House (if you have it), and the UFO’s. These extra bumps to your Daily Total can really help you get there faster, but not all required. There is a really good chance you will get some Ray Guns from each bag you collect. So send all kids (and Witch Marge if you have her) Trick or Treating to get those baggies.
|Character||Trick or Treating||Treat Bag|
|Lisa, Bart, Martin, Milhouse, Nelson, Ralph, Rod, Todd, Dolph, Database (inside)||8hrs||1 Bronze OR 1 Silver OR 1 Gold|
|Jimbo, Kearny, Shauna, Sherri & Terri, SVT, Uter (inside), Greta (inside), Witch Marge||16hrs||1 Silver OR 1 Gold|
As you can see, the odds of getting MORE Ray Guns will increase if you send the 8 hour task Trick or Treaters out 2 to 3 times a day and the 16 hours at least once a day if you have them.
GREM-ALIEN RAY GUNS
Those odd hybrids of creatures running a million miles around your town can stir up quite an annoyance. Trying to catch them scurrying off can be quite the chore, but if you DO catch them…you split the winnings with yourself and the Neighbor that sent them. If you let them run til they fade out in 4 hours, you get nothing from them. I personally say to tap the Grem-Aliens and share in the profits with your Neighbor. 2 Ray Guns each.
UFO RAY GUNS
If you are lucky, you can nab an extra 50 Ray Guns from one of the Rigellian UFO’s. There are also many more awesome prizes you can get from them, the Ray Guns are just a nice boost if you get them now and then.
RIGELLIAN HUNTING LICENSE RAY GUNS
For those that want to spend a lil extra money, turn over 90 of your Pink Sprinklies and pick up the Rigellian Hunting License. What will it do? It will double your payouts on Neighbor Ray Guns. So instead of 1 per 90 actions, you will earn 2 per 90 actions. So 180 Ray Guns a day. That is 90 more Ray Guns Daily added to your total.
PORTAL RIGEL 7 RAY GUNS
This is also another alternative for those that do not mind spending 100 Pink Sprinklies to boost the amount of Lil Rigellians in your town with the Portal to Rigel 7. This lil stargate will offer up an additional 6 Rigellians into your town every 8 hours. You will need to make sure your town has room first before releasing them. 36 extra Ray Guns Daily might not be worth it to everyone, but it is another option to boost your counts daily.
So there you have it. MANY ways to easily hit the daily targets and earn the Personal Prizes for Phase 2. Even if you do not play but a few times a day. Where are YOU on the Ray Gun count? Earn any items just yet? Did this help you out to not worry so much? Let us know.
