Hey there Grumples.
Here we are another new Event and here you all are panicking you just can’t make it or get enough of items to complete the requirements. Well, as usual, here is some Math to help you out and see how YOU can make it by just playing the TSTO Christmas Event.
All the information is very similar as in past events. The more time you spend in your game, the more characters you have to complete Present Earning Tasks, and the more Feds you get will all contribute to YOUR individual results.
Now for the Breakdown
PRESENTS FROM ELVES IN THE TOY SHOP
You will start out the game with 4 Elves once you complete the Toy Shop build. Each Elf will earn you 4 presents every 4 hrs. As you open a Tunnel, one more is added to the mix. So every day MORE Present earning options.
So if we take JUST the ones you have to start, 4 Elves giving 4 Presents every 4 hours. 16 Presents Every 4 hours and figure 5 collections each day (for time loss).
4 Elves = 80 or 96 Presents a day (for 5 or 6 Collections)
PRESENTS FROM ELVES WON IN THE TUNNELS
Each Tunnel you open and complete will add another Elf to your collection. So as of now with 9 Tunnels open you can have up to 9 extra Elves. Once won, they head to the Toy Shop and start working. Let’s figure how much they would add to your totals. I will put in a few different possibilities so you can see the difference.
*5 Extra Elves From Tunnels (20)= 100 or 120 Presents a day (for 5 or 6 Collections)
*6 Extra Elves From Tunnels (24)= 120 or 144 Presents a day (for 5 or 6 Collections)
*7 Extra Elves From Tunnels (28)= 140 or 168 Presents a day (for 5 or 6 Collections)
*8 Extra Elves From Tunnels (32)= 160 or 192 Presents a day (for 5 or 6 Collections)
*9 Extra Elves From Tunnels (36)= 180 or 216 Presents a day (for 5 or 6 Collections)
On top of this you can get an additional 100 Presents each Tunnel you complete BEFORE the 24hrs are up. This means you HAVE to tap the checkmarks on ALL the tasks and clear them for the day to get the Bonus 100 Presents Per Tunnel.
So to date you could have earned up to 900 EXTRA Presents from the Bonus.
Day 1: 5 Extra Presents
Day 2: 10 Extra Presents
Day 3: 50 Extra Presents
Day 4: 100 Extra Presents
Day 5: 1 Elf = 20 or 24 Presents a day (for 5 or 6 Collections)
Now you have a basic idea of how to get Presents from just playing daily. Now for more extras that will add to your Present Totals.
PRESENTS WON FROM CHARACTER TASKS
During game play throughout the questline as well as completing the Tunnels, you will be able to get additional tasks for Characters in your game unlocked to help you with your Present collecting. Here is a basic list of what is currently available in the game in Present Earning Tasks both around town as well as at the Toy Shop.
|4hrs||Santa||Eat Milk and Cookies||45 XP||2|
|Homer||Make Sargent Activity Dolls||*||2|
|Lisa||Make Musical Instruments||*||2|

|Barney (Tunnel 8)||Make Drinking Board Games||*||4|
|Milhouse (Tunnel 9)||Make Dolls||*||2|
|Hank Scorpio (Tunnel 10)||Make Radio Controlled Drones||*||4|
As most of the payouts are at the 4hr mark as well as the Elves, I will factor in the 4 hr tasks.
If you have the basic Characters Homer, Lisa, Apu, Flanders, and Milhouse (5 Total)
Each Character will add 2 Presents or = 10 or 12 Presents a day Each (for 5 or 6 Collections) x5
If you have the Premium Characters Frink, SVT, Moleman, Barney, and Hank (5 Total)
Each Character will add 4 Presents or = 20 or 24 Presents a day Each (for 5 or 6 Collections) x5
And here are some additional tasks you can do too…Majority of them will pay better on 4hrs though. (Minus Flanders)
|6hrs||Lisa||Make Snow Angels||55 XP||3|
|8hrs||Lisa||Pretend to Ski||70 XP||4|
|8hrs||Homer||Pretend to Ski||70 XP||4|
|8hrs||Santa||Get Drunk at Moe’s||70 XP||4|
|10hrs||Flanders (w/Rod & Todd)||Take the Boys Snowmobiling||270 XP||12|
|10hrs||Bart||Be a Nutcracker||90 XP||4|
|16hrs||Homer||Make a Snowman||125 XP||6|
|16hrs||Marge||Prepare Christmas Presents||125 XP||6|
More tasks are coming from the Tunnels as well. This will add additional 4hr earning Characters to your game Toy Shop too.

PRESENT EARNING BUILDING/DECORATIONS
Present Depot 8 Presents Every 4hrs = 40 or 48 Presents a day Each (for 5 or 6 Collections)
Elf Home 5 Presents Every 10hrs= 10 Presents a day Each
Holiday Tree 10 Presents Every 24 hrs Each
First 30 Actions (Approx 10 Neighbors) 2 Presents Each = 60 Presents Each Day
Next 60 Actions (Approx 20 Neighbors) 1 Present Each = 60 Presents Each Day
This will provide you with at least another 120 Presents a Day.
Now if you are able to send Feds in ANY town, do so. It will help you BOTH out.
PRESENTS FROM FEDS
If your Neighbors are able to send YOU Feds, you will get an additional Present from each one you clear. So even if you only get a MAX amount of 20, that is still and additional 20 Presents Each Day. The more Neighbors that send them, the more this will add up fast.
PRESENTS FROM QUESTLINES
Throughout the Event a Main Questline will award you 100 Presents for Every time you complete it. So to give you an idea, here is just a sample of extra gifts just for finishing quests.
Jingle Bell Wreck 12 Parts @ 100 Presents Each= 1200 Presents
Green is Good. Green Works 2 Parts @ 100 Presents Each= 200 Presents
Santa’s List @ 100 Presents Each
Also as you win and place the items, a mini quest is triggered on some of them to give you more presents.
So there you have it. MANY ways to hit the end target as well as earn the Personal Prizes for Phase 1. YOU just need to put in the time and effort. It may seem like you can’t keep up as first, but as you continue to unlock more and more and get further along, it will get easier and easier.
Where are YOU on the Presents count? What items have YOU won so far from the Personal Prizes? Did this help you out to not worry so much? Let us know.
