  1. I unlocked the fcbg this morning but when i enter in my game 4 hours later i dnt have it, hes checked in the price menu but i dont have that costume. Why?

  2. I was excited to get this, the sequence involved has been used not only in the original airing episode but also in a Clip show episode (think it was April Fools, Homer goes into a comma clip show episode) but also in the Simpson’s EA game (available in all major tv-video gaming devices).
    I actaully was hoping an event purely around it (which is evident that won’t happen now), wanting Chocolate covered streets and land, chocolate raindrops, chocolate lab that Homer bites, lamp post with bite marks, and Homer animation of him happily prancing around.
    MMmmmmm…event ideas *droolful shudder*

  3. Is anyone else noticing that event currency is very difficult to keep up with? I’m in my game every four hours, and there’s no way I can make the last prize for act 2.

  4. I have the next prize and fully upgraded all 4 of the act2 xmas buildings but am still 2000 hats short of festivus outfit. How did everybody finish act2 already?!?!

    • Me too I’m sitting at 32000 with everything upgraded I’m sure Maggie arriving lost me mistletoe can’t see me grinding 3000 mistletoe in 3 days

    • Holly not hats 😉

    • I don’t know about anyone else, but I compulsively tapped merrymakers. I also have many premium characters, which brought me some extra foliage during the upgrade process. My secondary town with fewer characters is still a few thousand away from the skin. (I won’t mind much if I don’t get it, it’s rather meh.)

    • Me toi ivre 3000 to go

    • I guess it’s cause I’m just a hardcore tapper that I got everything done already.I even managed to get a bonus round of donuts a little while ago. Just keep tapping along and do the best you can.

  5. This is the only prize I actually wanted from act 2. Such a classic episode 🙂
    Hopefully we get Wall e Weasal and that big brown bear from title screen in act 3 🙂

  6. Is there a timer glitch? My game says that act 3 starts at the same time as the event ends???

  7. They should have made the action “Selling half-price chocolate.”

  8. I love getting new buildings! This one actually prompted a little rearranging so I could make a group of some buildings that also appear to be made out of food, like the chocolate fortress and gingerbread houses. Marshmallow and cotton candy trees are everywhere, I’m excited to see how it all looks in the springtime.

  9. Ah. I was hoping that thing helped gluttony.

  10. I’m torn: do I put this one in Chocolate Town, or the Christmas Village I’m building?

  11. This is my favorite of the buildings from this event, I think. I haven’t found a place for it yet, (would be nice to have some gingerbread walls?) but I might surround it with some of those marshmallow trees..

  12. You can’t get any more classic. Awesome

  13. My level 3 fortress of loneleness is covered with something purple. What’s the matter with it?

    • It’s the vandalism to goes back. Follow the questline

    • I have the same problem, and I’m not the only one. It seems it’s a glitch that appears when you start the Maggie quest before the vandalising is finished. The fortress stays covered with goo, and you miss out on 400 mistletoe 🙁

  14. I think all buildings should have at least one task for at least one character in them. Most (if not all) buildings already have some kind of animation created for them (which you can see when it’s in an area that randomly “comes alive” at some point), so why waste it by not having anyone use the building and trigger it?

  15. I’ve got it in my Christmas area next to the Fortress of Choclitude. Looks pretty good there.

  16. Will there be crafting in Act 3?
    The countdown does end, so I’m wondering when I should spend the rest of my crafting resources?

  17. Easily one of the best prizes from this event from a classic scene/episode. I haven’t found a permanent space for it yet, but right now it’s in Snowman Square with candy canes, marshmallow trees, and the lollipop flowers around it 🙂 Chooooocolate, 50% off!!

  18. Can you tell us how the outdoor fireplace helps with anything?

  19. Hopefully Act 3 will be more interesting… I found the whole event quite boring so far. The special buildings are kinda cool, and some of the craftables are okay. I think I enjoyed Halloween more just because we could churn out craftables, and it boosted my bonus immensely!

  20. It looks neat paired with the Fortress of Chocolitude. They have the same signage.

  21. I thought shame it didn’t go on Squidport, would have given more options

    🎄 🎈 🙂
