    I found fireworks twice at a gap of one and a half hours.

    Why did day 1 last only a couple hours instead of 24 hours? and day 2 did not last 24 hours either?
  • If I did not know better I would say GGS is taking a page from Dilbert (comic strip) and outsourced the event development to the Elbonians.  LOLOLOLOL!!

    Hi Moderators
    was just looking thru last years Zodiac flags won and was just comparing it to my new rat flags - and wondered if it was at all possible to include the year in which it was won - ie rat flag 2017 for example.  I do realise that they do look different but only on closer inspection, perhaps this may also be an idea for other flags won that repeat on special events, valentines day etc
    Many thanks

  • the event for me is over, while harvesting i still see the cards, however the daily cards counter doesnt go down, it keeps stuck at 26, tried different browsers, restarting pc, removing cookies nothing helps :neutral: 

    Anyone who has the same problem?
  • I've got the same problem. Counter aid 150 more needed - harvested apples dropped 190 cards and counter said I still needed 130 to get to next level.
  • Ahha...I get it. Only rat cards count today...
  • Correct Tracey, each day has a different activity challenge, day 2 is only counting Rat chips & the rewards include the new Rat flags :)
  • There is a bug in the game causing the Chinese New Year event problems. Loads are harvesting their farms and collecting hundreds of chips but only a very small amount is registering.  I looked on here but seems no one has mentioned it yet i know its happening to loads of players farms.

    As clearly explained in the OA - only all chips will count for 3 days (when a stack of cards is shown in the menu). Today is the day of the RAT, so today only the cards from the RAT will be registered.
  • So someone tell me if this is right or wrong.....
    It seems you have to wait for a firework to appear before harvesting your farm , which appears randomly and may only appear once in a day. Therefore what chips you collect during your harvest without firework being there don't count.
    so If you miss the firework then you will not complete that day. Seems a bit pointless playing to collect if this is true

    You collect (and count) chips all day. Fireworks just boost their amount and work magic in your progress. On day 2 you only count rats for daily tasks. All the other signs count toward zodiacs total. Always check what you're supposed to collect for daily 20. Fireworks do appear randomly, more then once a day, but not very often.

    Wascallywabbit,if that's true then why did it count every card collected yesterday the first day ?

    So that means if only rat cards count in the activity challenge, it will not be possible to collect maybe 2000 rat cards to complete the 20 events in the activity challenge part, unless you use huge amounts of gold to keep skipping harvests.
    So its aimed at gold spending therefore A Gold Spending Event

    So each day is different and only counts a card that is for that day only. (ie pig card)
    So that means you would have to use gold to skip harvest production to be able to find the cards required, that makes more sense to me, so its a gold spend event ???
    BECAUSE - as already explained several times to you in other threads where you have posted exactly the same - just like last year - we have a few days (last year it was 3 days) where the menu shows a stack of cards (like yesterday) and then all zodiac chips do count (and one can win a nice deco). All the other days the menu will show the picture of 1 certain zodiac animal and then, on that very day, only those cards of that animal are registered (and one can win a flag).

    If you want to call it a Gold spend event than go ahead, if this makes you feel better. If you don't want to play this event because of that, you are free to choose so .

    It's luck based. Your rats eiher drop good, or they don't. If you're lucky to catch fireworks and drop good rat count during that time, you're easily sorted. If unlucky, then yes, it's as you say. Either spend insane amounts of dollars in hope of geting rat booster, or spend gold to get rat direct, which is also insane imo. :)

    I have been playing steady for the last 3 days and the snakeand dragon numbers are still at 1% and the rabbit is at 2 %.  This can not be true as i have seen them come up as often as the others.  I will not spend a dime on a game that is screwed up like this one.

    Remember that is a percentage of the total you need  ;)

    Hi, Mee8,

    Click on your inventory box, then on the flag icon.  It should be there.  :)

    What DK said.  Also, there is a darker, brownish outer circle around each animal.  You should see it grow as you collect your cards.  Although, it takes a lot of boosters to see much progress.

    How can you lose Happiness after you've earned it?  Several members of my coop left last night with one Happiness Value and then to the right the Bonus Happiness Value.  Today, the first Happiness amount has dropped, (in one case, 7 points).  If you spin the wheel do you lose 1 Happiness point?  Or if you skip the spin you get, do you lose 1?  Any help on understanding why this has occurred would be appreciated.
