    Very disappointing that only gold can be used. The scarecroach looks nice and I would love to have one... Hope it will be possible to buy it for dollars or gain it as a price. Otherwise I will have to live without it. :-(

    Missup, you need to spin the wheel 8 times to get a chance of winning the scare crow. Tokens will stay in your inventory also between events. So if you are clever, you save your tokens until you have at least 8 and then attempt for the scare crow deco. That may be the next event or 3 events later, I do not know how randomly the tokens will be dropping and how long it will take before you have 8. Anyway, you need to spin it 8 times every new event, so if you spun it 6 times now and the event is over, next event you need to spin it all 8 times again. So then technically you have wasted 6 tokens. That would be a pity.

    Ikr, I also had the starting one and haven't got any more yet. Will see to the end if I have a few more. I think I will just try to save them over several events, hoping the events will keep running long enough to get enough tokens together and then probably win a lousy price even :P Oh well, that's life :)

    I got about 200k or something. And I got another Barbecue Area.

    I haven't found anymore tokens either since last night, and I had everything going until this morning, which means I had a LOT to harvest. Didn't find jack. :(

    How do you know when you find a token? Do you get to see it like collectibles, or will it just appear in the Wheel of Fortune screen? Because I haven't seen any of the ones I got so far.

    All I can add to that question is that you can also see how many you have in your inventory - equipment tab. For me that is x0, so I have no clue whether they pop up like collectibles or not :(

    The tokens do pop up like any other collectable, but they are small compared to a drop of water or a pile of poo. I almost missed the one (and only) I have gotten, and only noticed because I saw a flash of green as I cleared the screen

    The tokens are random, and very rare, not like the co-op collectibles

    And before you ask, no I haven't had any drop for me either

    I am wondering if tokens can drop on the gourmet and flower farms since Monty is illegally parked on those 2 farms as well

    The description in the news says you only get the tokens from doing things around your main farm. I think you're just allowed to spin while at the other farms.
    It's a nice thought.

    I never saw mine drop, but it shows up in the Equipment tab of your Inventory.

    The tooltip says, "To find interact with: Wheel of fortune", so maybe you have to spin once before you find any more of them? And maybe the reason nobody has been finding more is not just that they're rare, but also because many of us were waiting until after we had collected several before spinning the wheel? (Edit: Nope; I'm wrong about that; I just found a second one without having played the wheel yet.) I don't know; just a thought. *grin* Sometimes I wonder whether the developers read the forums too, and point and giggle at our wild speculations before we figure out how new things actually work!

    After about 12 hours of intensive gaming - first doing a project for my co-op and then the fairy tale event - I just had a token drop off a corn field. So... they're out there, just really rare.

    *edit*
    I have NOT yet spun the wheel, so you don't need to spin to find new tokens.

    it is the last half-hour before server midnight. Wonder if that has anything to do with it? (Obviously not, but the mind can't help trying to make connections)

    Can you only collect coins while the wheel of fortune is in play, or can they come randomly also when it is not there?

    The official announcement implies, but does not state, that you can only collect them while Monty is present at your farm.

    Thank You for posting the announcement, I hadn't seen it before. I got through almost 2 fairytale steps and not one coin... that is sad that you can harvest about 400 times and not get one!! This randomness has not been kind to me!!

    Many here are stating that you could get chips for the "Wheel of Fortune" by working your farm, but I for one, did not receive a single chip for working my farm. I have worked my farm so hard that after only 2 days of the "Fairy tale time" event, I am on the breadcrumbs. And no, I did not pay gold to get skip any events. Perhaps you used to be able to get chips this way, but I did not see that happening this time. In order to play the wheel, I had to pay gold after the 1st "Free" spin.
    On a plus note, I did get the scarecrow and 3 barbeques. :-)

    Update: I have been informed that this is the 1st time for the Wheel of Fortune event. Please excuse my lack of knowledge as I am new here - I was merely attempting to make a simple observation and to add meaningful input this forum, which is why I added both the negative and the positive aspects to my posting. I apologize if my posting has misled anyone in any way and I hope that this update will correct my previous egregious posting. Thank you.

    I am beginning to suspect that a glitch may have been fixed. Congratulations on your good fortune!!!!!

    Urgh, half a day of harvesting corn fields and all my coops, stys and orchards..........resulting in 1 extra token, just one! Clearly another event aimed at getting people to buy gold. Its understandable but hard not to be disappointed.

    I spent over 8000 gold on tokens, went through 6 jackpot spins, and am very upset with how crappy my results always end up when I participate in these things. 80% of my spins resulted in things like corn and chicken feed (not even super). I got 6 big ornamental trees (big whoop). A bunch of times I got 2,000 dollars.

    If I recall, 5 out of 6 of my jackpot spins resulted in a couple of rose seeds, one time a sunflower seed. The only thing of even mild interest that I got was a playground. But for 8000+ gold??! And I too ran my farm hard during this event, and never saw one free token (not that it would have made a difference).

    Last time I ever participate in this one. Same with the "mystery box" for 250 gold. I always end up with garbage on that also. I came home last night from a 16 hour, long hard day (including a 5 hour round trip commute), and treated myself to this, and while a scarecrow would have made my night, this result more or less ruined it.

    You shouldn't be able to get screwed like this when you are putting real money down. I don't spend gold often, and clearly when I do I end up disappointed, so why would I spend more? If I knew I was at least going to get what I'd normally get for spending that kind of gold, with the possibility of something more, then maybe they could get me to spend the gold that I otherwise wouldn't be spending. But knowing that there is a huge likelihood that I will not only not even get a typical value for my gold, but end up completely screwed over? Why would I ever spend gold again on events like this.
