Hey there readers, I’d like to welcome you to this tragic gamblers story, where today I’m going to be talking about the event that just was, Santa Griffin Is Coming To Town. After 4 weeks of decorating trees and collecting presents it’s all over but for the poll, and that’s where we will find out if this event saw you celebrating or suffering from the holiday blues.
Now I usually do a big, long-winded, rambling review of events but I’m finding since many of the recent events are clones of what’s gone previous I’m writing the same each time. This isn’t fun to write and it must be getting boring for you to read, so I thought I decided after the last event to cut it short and just tell you what I liked and didn’t like.
What I liked:
- Easy start to the event – shame it didn’t last
- 8 new characters and costumes available freemium
- Return of Santa character for players who didn’t have him
- Clam generator building, North Pole Credit Union
- Bonus clams
- No timers that saw Characters disappear is unlock requirements not met within them
- Shorter side Questlines
- A Christmas tree to decorate, ok upgrade
- A real Christmas feel to the event content
- Elf Stewie (Shane TinyCo put him in a mystery box – should have been the Week 4 Wishlist grand prize)
- Reindeer Brian
What I didn’t like:
- Returning decoration as Wishlist grand prize
- Mystery Boxes containing materials
- The 2 best festive costumes, Reindeer Brian & Elf Stewie were premium
- No Christmas gift for long-term players who already had Santa
- Event after a great start got bogged down with trying upgrade tree and Blitzen’s bar
Now if you can please take a minute to complete the end of event poll at the end of this post I’d be very grateful. Please note for those that experience the jump glitch when answering poll questions, there’s a direct link at the bottom of the page that will help you avoid this problem, just keep scrolling to the bottom.
And just incase you can’t see the poll or find it jumps about when you’re trying answer, here’s the direct link:
