Anyway, just to confirm, we need 4 wrapped gifts to make 1 ham and then 4 hams to make next item and so on, my calculations show that we need in total 262,144 wrapped gifts?! And we still need to keep 1 of each item to complete the collection.

Hehe Mearro, I tried to calculate but got crazy :o

As you see on the picture of Regina, day 2 will give you ham too from collecting from pigs... The Log Cabin can help you to craft those items, which you think you won't get/have much so you will have more full collections (1 of each item = a collection).

Based on what criteria if I may ask? Seems very unfair...that means those of us who do not receive a cabin can't turn in a collection early. We are regulated ONLY to collecting and not being able to craft. I am not sure I understand the thought process behind this

I would like to know the criteria as well and why it was decided to do it this way.

12-09-16, 04:04 PM
the Log cabin is $1200. I can sell some of my items to get that amount. But without the log cabin, my only other option is the bungalow which is 160 diamonds. I get 5 diamonds from each train delivery, if I am diligent (which I am not) and lucky (which I am not apparently) to gather all items asked for. at 10 diamonds from train each day, it would take me 16 days to be able to afford the bungalow. of course I have some diamonds saved up, but I am going to pass the bungalow, compared to the $1200, the 160 diamonds is too rich for my style.

i honestly don't know how i was selected to be excluded. i checked out my neighbors who are higher level than me and have way more resources than me, and they are all proudly showing off the little log cabin at the front of their farm. Oh well, merry Christmas to me ...

12-09-16, 04:39 PM
Another question I have - is it a 50/50 split on those who have the log cabin and those who don't?

Hehe, my bad, I just read fully the rules for this type of events and I went a bit crazy at first because it's my first time participating in this. All I can say is, thanks god we can get collection items via other means than just crafting :D

Can we still get items on next days, i.e. wrapped gifts after Day 1 or only on Day 1 from deliveries?

About the cabin log, so sorry it's just for "selected" players. Idk if maybe it's more of a case of limited x number, I managed to get the cabin but that was I think the moment the event went on, maybe sadly they were all taken by early starters? Still that's super unfair and you would think after the disastrous previous event, some alterations and feedbacks would be taken into account.

Welcome to your first Collection Event :)

Yes, after day 1 you still can get day 1 items. Each day will open a new one but the previous one(s) you will still be able to collect too.
Unless this has changed with this Collection event

Thanks and I was sadly thinking the same. Guess you never know, I'm a bit shocked that cabin logs are limited, doing such things will only discourage people from playing the game. I'm still new but what about the loyal long-playing players?

I have the log cabin available. I'm wondering if it's to make up for the duck signs stopping working? Because I had one of those. Or perhaps it's only available to those who purchased the egg dipper back at Easter, which I had purchased as well.

My level 50 farm on an iPad has no option for the log cabin. My level 28 on an iPhone has the option. I don't complain about events, but this is really not fair. How can a virtual game have a "limited edition" item and only offer a limited amount to selected players? Seriously? This needs to be fixed.

You should be able to increase the number of slots...once I started crafting something it let me open another slot. I hope it works for you too!

Ok just read this and. I already bought the elves thingy for gems. But no log cabin for $1200. I had a duck crossing that stopped working and sent a request about that and have heard nothing. I have spent money on this game if it's going to be this random and unfair I will gladly quit. I don't need to be frustrated by a game that's meant to be fun. Fix this or I'm out. Life's too short and there are other games to play!!!!

The same thing happened to me. I've stopped wasting my time and foods for nothing. I'm afraid to send deliveries after crafting or buying foodstuff. Love that I've spent gems for nothing. I don't have time for this - I'm trying to get ready to move by the end of month.

I'm tempted to write to the Better Business Bureau on Teamlava. They shouldn't get away with tricking their customers to spend good money on a game that has all these bugs. So irked right now! I just sent 10 more deliveries and not one thing dropped. This is very unusual for my farm, usually I'll get a expansion part or paper or a tool with every few deliveries.

The log cabin isn't great this time. Mine requires 4 items to craft the next, so unless planes drop loads of presents it isn't going to be much help. Does the gem one require the same amount per item or is the crafting time shorter? Ham takes 15min in coin log cabin.

I reached the same figure as yours. 262,144 wrapped gifts to make x1 Day 10 collection item. Unless I miscalculated, we need 466,030 wrapped gifts for a full set to turn in. (someone recheck my calculations, I hope I'm wrong). I think I'll wait for the new day to unlock the items instead. Delivery orders are super tough at higher levels and plus my drop ratio, I don't think I'm able to craft a set.

10: 65536*4=262144

This are correct calculations if you rely only on getting packages from deliveries and yep 262144 are needed in order to craft the very final item, wrapped stone. I forgot to mention that since we need all 10 items for full collection, we will need way more than 262144 packages but my head just hurts to thinking about the exact number needed! What's more, am I right to think that even if we exchange full collection, it's not a guarantee to get a polar bear? If so, we would need even even even more packages o.O

I stopped getting packages now...

I have had both sets show up. The Ham one appears to be unique to the cabin owners. After completing the 10 wrapped gifts, no new quest/mission popped up, and I'm assuming those will show as we get to the related day for that quest.

I sent over a half dozen deliveries this morning. No wrapped gifts. I don't expect one every time, but I do expect a better return rate. Well, I would with other games. (I have not bought the gem cabin.) I have the quest for giving 10 packages but not the one with the ham.

Why do I have a feeling the animals are going to be uncooperative as well?

Hello..

1. I suddenly feel like giving up after read the calculation of wrapped packages needed for day 10 collection. I mean I cannot always online and the drop rate of the packages is amazing too. I can't even buy the igloo habitat because I don't have anymore space on my farm (android can't save habitats to the cellar). Even if I win the polar cub (I thought he was a cute puddle until I saw the igloo) too bad I won't be able to put him on his home. :( This is unbelievable, a great present for xmas from TL.

2. Another question is, I see the adorable siberian husky worth $100,000 and is his home an igloo? I see there are max 3 igloos to buy, but I don't know who else can join the polar cub (or we MAY win more than 3 polar cubs) to put into the igloos. Somehow it reminds me with the Turtle Summer Event last year if I'm not mistaken. Sad to remember almost half of my neighbors complained to the thread because of the unfairness (but then so glad TL fixed it).

Happy December and have a blessed month, hehe... :o

I have the cabin and the hut...both are expandable after you start crafting. The hut requires only half as many ingredients. Not sure if this event is doable with so many crafts required to proceed, but perhaps the drop rate will increase.

Nice find! The Siberian husky and polar bear can join the ghost dog (it's more like polar dog to me).

Idk but I find these events to crash/have lots of glitches/uber low drop rate early but then things catch up a day or two later.

I need a break between events. It's like with new ones they are trying to keep us still playing but all the new restriction will be their undoing...

What's more, am I right to think that even if we exchange full collection, it's not a guarantee to get a polar bear? If so, we would need even even even more packages o.O

You are correct you are not guaranteed a polar bear cub is you turn in a full collection or even several collections. I would recommend that you set your sights low and expect only decorations and if you win the pet you can be thrilled. This is the same type of event that was used for the Easter event and on that one I turned in almost 30 collections and never received the yellow chick pet. On the other hand other farms received two or three pets. There was a side quest on the Easter event as well where you gave items and there was a different pet at then end. Cannot say if that will happen here since the team did not give us that information up front. One finally observation between the Easter event and this one, it appears that there will fewer decorations this time so hopefully the chance of winning the cub will be higher. It would be nice if we received the cub at the first collection and then random items/pets after that. I would like the cub but my farm is on the unlucky side and after what happened with this previous event I am not expecting a pet this time.

By the way the drop rate for me seems to be 10 deliveries for 1 package. Way too low for the number that we will need in the end.

Based on what criteria if I may ask? Seems very unfair...that means those of us who do not receive a cabin can't turn in a collection early. We are regulated ONLY to collecting and not being able to craft. I am not sure I understand the thought process behind this

I feel so frustrated that there is no log cabin option showing in my list. Not only it can make even numbers out of the collection by crafting items but also the cabin is a beautiful building that I can decorate in my farm after event. So unfair....

When collecting gifts from deliveries, where are they stored? I cannot find them in the barn the silo or the cellar, I see no count of them. I have collected 1 gift out of 12 deliveries ( here we go again :-( ) but do not see it anywhere. To collect 10 gifts for the first goal will take forever at this rate!!!

My pigs are ready and I've been waiting for Day 2 to unlock, if it's exactly 24h after Day 1 then it will be at 2:30pm PST.

It should be fine with the last day unlocking, the event is supposed to last 12 days, we should have hmmm a 1-2 days after Day 10. I just hope the drop rate from animals/building/fishing/mining will be reasonable

Oh no, that's awful. These luck-based events are tough, you can work your butt off and get nothing or get everything and more. I feel like every year the game is getting harder? I just started playing not long ago but looking back at previous events that's the impression I'm getting.

I stopped doing deliveries until the drop rate is improved but right at the start I used to get 1-2 packages with every single delivery then it suddenly stopped today.

I might wait with collecting from pigs too just in case we get reports that they too don't give us anything back :(

Don't give up, raissawinda. I did the calculations to confirm mearro's figures. We can still do this event by waiting for the collection item to unlock. Well I'm doing that for a change this time. Normally I would always buy the gem building to craft the collection item from delivery at Day 7 or 8 in past events. Play on and wait for the items to unlock and turn in. Who knows you might be one of the lucky ones who get the cub at first few turn ins? :)

I was super excited for Christmas in this game but I am so confused. First, we get the last competition event which I thought was in poor taste at Christmastime, I mean what better way to get into the Christmas Spirit than by clobbering your friends and neighbors! And now this luck based event? Last year was my first Christmas event and I so loved how we as a community worked together to win the prizes, isn't that what Christmas is about coming together? It's a disappointment for sure, and I don't even see new Christmas Decor either... It's a shame too because prior to this the events were really good so much so I would buy the 1400 Gem package about every 2 months or so to show my support and enjoy the decorations. I play other games where this month Food Street for example has a Christmas Advent Gifting Calendar, just for logging in you get free decorations all month long! That's how you celebrate the season! Shame on you Teamlava/Storm8 this distasteful and I certainly won't be supporting it.

I think the Christmas event is after this one. So far it seems that they are squeezing as many events as possible now. We barely finished the previous one and BAM now we got this. If you are up for the Christmas event I advice to save for it, save all you fishing/mining tools, save ore, coins and gems if possible too and don't invest too much in this luck-based event.

I don't see any answers to any of the questions that have been asked about the Log Cabin and how it was determined as to who received the Log Cabin. No answers on the drop rate or any other of the good questions. Where are the moderators or community managers? Storm 8 should be better than this! Several events in a row have been either unfair, had to many glitches or totally not realistic to achieve unless you you play 24 hours a day. Really Storm 8? Get it together and give some answers!

I've been reading all the comments about the packages no longer dropping and what I noticed is that when I first started the drop rate was great but as soon as I made the ham and then needed to donate the 10 gifts the drop rate reduced to a terribly low amount. It now takes me on average about 12 deliveries just to get one package. I only have the log cabin - I didn't buy the Elves bungalow for gems. I hope they adjust this drop rate otherwise this event is going to just be frustrating.

That white animal looks like a dog I already have on my farm�� And you only have a "chance" of getting it when you turn in a collection.

The log cabin requires twice as many ingredients for crafting so if youncan get the elf house, get it. I no longer craft in the cabin, but expanded the elf house.

I have not received any gifts in more than a day, plenty of deliveries but nothing, cannot get any further with the collection because you need at least 4 of the previous. I don't understand why they don't listen to all the complaints... their greediness is going to catch up when more and more people give up on the game. The quests are getting harder all the time, unless you play day and night, spend lots of money you can not finish the events. It's just frustrating because it is a fun game but when it gets this hard I do loose interest and I am sure I am not alone!

Maybe I'm just confused, but...what is the point? The goals for each day have been relatively simple to accomplish, compared to other challenges I've played in. It seems like no matter what, as long as you check in once a day to get one collection item each, you'll win? It seems like you don't need multiple gifts or multiple hams in order to win, you only need one by the end of the eleven days. It doesn't seem, to me, that you even need to craft anything in the log cabin or elf house. I'm managing to complete the time-limited goals in plenty of time, and usually I'm struggling to complete them within the time frame. But with everyone so worried about how many of each collection item they're able to get, I'm wondering if I'm just confused or doing it wrong?

To win the grand prize, the polar bear cub, you need to turn in collections like you do butterflies or moles. It is completely random, you might get it on the first try, or you might turn in 50 collections and never get it. That's why you want to collect as many of each daily item as you can, because you the have a better chance of getting the bear cub. Some players don't even complete the side goals, just save all the items for the collection machine. Hope that helps :)

Oh if only it was THAT easy. Having full collection doesn't mean you get the polar bear cub, it's random, luck-based, you can end up getting only decorations. This is why on average players turn in several full collections. Or you can be lucky and get it the first time.

About the items from fishing and mining I bet you that some of us will fish or mine x50 and still not get the item. Which is why having the log cabin or the elf one allows you to simply craft it instead of wasting more fishing/mining tools.

You don't make it in dairy but it should appear occasionally when you collect finished dairy products. I'm not getting as much as I'm getting hams from pigs though.

Ah, thanks. I guess I misinterpreted that. It's a little confusing to have the Log Cabin where EVERYTHING can be made (with enough of the right components) from the very beginning while the items are unlocked day by day.

EDIT: Though I guess it counts when you collect it from the Log Cabin as well.

Yeah, I started making next items in the log cabin but since packages are rarely dropping it's better to save them to turn full collections in. We can try using hams to make further items in the log cabin since pigs are giving them at a reasonable drop rate.

Tbh, it's a bit boring now trying to do anything although we can (keep collecting hams and eggnogs now) but the event will get much faster on Day 10 with all items unlocked when you get them way faster than crafting through in the log cabin. I just hope the drop rate will be good.

The giving goal is asking for an awfully lot :(

NunuusFarm
12-11-16, 04:32 PM
Agreed!! The gifting goal is a joke. And to think it's only goal 2 out of 5, so it will get more diffucult moving on forward. However the polar cub is shown as part of the collections prizes so I do hope that's the case - since that's definitely more feasible than the goals. I doubt I woll win it though since I did win the duckies in the last event, which if I might add was quite stressful to anyone who participated.


The eggnog seems to be dropping every third or so collection, which compared to the hams isn't a great drop rate
Hope it gets better

I think I understood that. I have no numbers next to the donation goal items. I tested it and donated 1 cheese and it then showed up..so...I assume if you donate them, the numbers will show,there under the goal, but you lose them in the collections... is that clear?

I am unable to collect eggnog from the dairy for the Day 3 item. Instead I had to craft it in the Log Cabin.

If we're to craft eggnog in the dairy, then when will the item become an available option to me?

I've repeatedly rebooted and also made sure I have the latest Farm Story 2 version, but still no luck with this issue. Any suggestions?

You collect items from the dairy (cheese etc) and if you're lucky you get a eggnog as well. Don't craft anything in the log cabin until all the items are unlocked on day 10, and you have turned in all the collections you can. And then if you are missing anything and it's very hard to get then you can craft it with the log cabin. Otherwise you are just wasting what you have collected. A new item is unlocked everyday. You just need to wait. In the meantime keep crafting stuff in the cider/bed and breakfast/bait shop but not collecting it until it's unlocked. Save your bait for fishing. Save mining tools for the last day. The time to make an item does not affect drop rates so just make whatever is fastest or easiest.

FYI, you can get a head start on trying to collect items from shops. The bed and breakfast collection starts tomorrow. So I am crafting now, and will collect tomorrow when the item drops. Same thing for cider mill, which has the drop 2 days from now. Craft a bunch and leave them to collect when the item drops.

You should be able to increase the number of slots...once I started crafting something it let me open another slot. I hope it works for you too!
I have the log cabin, but also got the elf house. I worked out early on that the elf house crafts the items with less requirements E.g. Less ham to make next drink thing. Just sayin'

12-12-16, 05:34 PM
The log cabin isn't great this time. Mine requires 4 items to craft the next, so unless planes drop loads of presents it isn't going to be much help. Does the gem one require the same amount per item or is the crafting time shorter? Ham takes 15min in coin log cabin.
Elf house requires less ham to make next item I've noticed

I do not have the generous gift giving goal. I just have The Gift Exchange which says use 4 precious packages to turn into a not so precious ham in the log cabin. It seems to be unrelated but must I complete this to trigger generous gift giving? And do we know the rewards for the generous gift giving?

If I use 14/15 of my precious packages (4 to a ham, then 10 to give), I won't have any to turn in as collections.

I've never had day 1 be the limiting factor in a collection event before!!

I'm excited about the animal skins. I worry about the extra moving things on my farm. Visiting high level neighbors with them causes my iPad to close ��

I also hope the next generous gift quest comes out today. I needed to harvest 60 pigs to get 20 hams and make 60 cheese to get 20 eggnog. Now I'm afraid to get rid of my pancakes because I'll probably need them soon but, I'm running out of barn space.

If you received a skin outfit for your farm animals, you can change their skin by going into Edit Mode, tapping on the animal pen, and then selecting the Paint Bucket. There you will see other skins for the animal, if you have any.

I am having qualms about starting this quest, as usual. I have not been able to complete any of the others I started since I do not stay on this game 24/7 like others must do in order to meet some of these ridiculous goals. So far I have been able to keep up but doing some rough figuring there is no way I can generate enough hams to continue the need to multiply the daily needs 4x each day. As it is, I bought another hog pen and 4 hogs to try to get more hams but in my last 2 harvests of my 8 hogs, I have received 1 ham!!!!! I will not spend 160 gems for the elf house that will probably be useless after Xmas.

By making these events impossible to achieve without spending real money, they are probably going to make me uninstall this game I have been playing for the last three years.

I just don't know how to trigger these goals. I have a goal requiring the use of the log cabin, but not everyone can get the log cabin, so surely that goal is not required for the generous gift giving ones?

If this will just be holiday skins ( and I have nice ones already from previous years) I will just stop worrying about this goal line all together. But sometimes there is a pet at the end of these goals....

Caron the next goal is not released because you finished the previous one. In the past there has only been a goal released every couple of days.

Number three out of five has been released today and Driver has posted the requirements. I am still saving my presents from planes and have not handed them over I too have very nice skins from previous years so am playing a waiting game to see what is coming.

So far only the first three goals were released and as soon as next one is released rynetory will post it on the first page.

The next goal will likely not be released until day seven now.

Hope this helps you should have goal three today.

Day one was goal one

Not sure if the Generous Gift Giving goals rewards a pet at the end. I'm stuck at 1/5 due to wrapped gifts which is the toughest for me of all collection items. I'm holding on until I get more wrapped gifts. I guess we'll have to wait for others to progress ahead and post, to get the answer. Btw we had delivery item on Day 1 once in a past similiar event. I think it was easier for me then cos I was at lower level and we didnt have goats then.

Thank you, Rynetory. I am with you here, having a tough time getting the presents. I'm waiting as well to see what to do. I want to have some left to turn in as collections!

I just don't recall the first item as being limiting before. Usually I was able to use lots of item one to craft upwards to the more difficult items. You could be right that we are higher level now... And all these deliveries might just level me up... Oh no!

So today I finally realized my game isn't saving the things I do. I'm working on the generous gift giving day 2 and I constantly make cheese to get the egg nog. But I'll set 3 to be made and open the game later and they'll be none made or pending. And I'll have all my milk back that I had used up to make the cheese. This has happened so many times and I kept thinking I must've forgotten to make them but I just had 2 instances in a row I would make the cheese and open 15 minutes later to find the dairy maker empty with nothing made.

Sorry to hear that. Whenever I see that happening to me, I restart the game completely and after doing important task or setting items to craft etc I go visit my neighbours to force save the game.

REWARD Cow Skin


I have just finished this goal but I can't find the skin for the cows. I have force closed and reopened but it still isn't there. I have a skin which I think looked very similar to a previous but not this new one.

Does anyone have a picture of the skin (once I finished the goal the picture disappeared) and/or have any suggestions please?

So far I find apple trees the worst, I barely got 1 tree cookie from them so far...

I was just checking to see if I was the only one with this problem, and I see I'm not alone. I have collected from the apple trees twice now and both times I have received 1 cookie and I have the maximum amount of trees. I'm finding the drop rates for this event ridiculous and it is becoming hard to enjoy these events any more.

Same here. At this rate I better craft these cookies than wait for trees.

Wow. Collected from all 12 sheep, nothing but wool

I got one sweater from my 8 sheep - just enough for the 8th Day of Gifting goal.

In other news, I turned in three complete collections and received one snow sled, one set of 3x snowy path, and one set of 2x snowy path corner. Looks like my little elf house still has its work cut out for it if I'm going to try for the pet.

Congratulations! I just turned in three more, and received three more lots of decorations, so I am still hoping. The decorations are so nice and festive though, that I am not too worried either way. :-)

I'm quite happy with the drop rate for toy ships, it's almost every 4th fishing and it's always twice and it's just with basic baits, nice.

Such a shame though, I thought the goal will ask for linen flowers, I made a bunch of them.

These animal skins are sooo hmmm, simple? Just ribbons, scarfs, gloves or hats?

I agree..such simple skins....the drop rate is great..I just got 15 boats with the silver lure. I bought the 4.99 pack...made 3 trades and got 2 more dogs.

I, too, have fished many hours using dough bait...not one toy boat. Have closed and restarted countless times. Should I/we be using a different bait?

mearro
12-18-16, 04:47 AM
Hmmm, it was working fine for me at the beginning. I prepared about 120 dough baits, used them all in one go and got 60 toy ships (fished successfully 30 times, and the toys always came in double).

I tried fishing in smaller number and I didn't get any toys, maybe the key is fishing in large bulk?

Btw, are you getting any cookies from apple trees? I'm getting none so far...

Having a bad morning today with this game. I went to use hams to have the elves make the next item and accidentally used packages to make three hams. Then I lost connection to the game and had to shut down and restart. After the restart I used 15 baits in the fishing spot and not one toy boat. Prior to the restart I was getting a toy boat ever 6-7 tries. The chickens and pigs are also not giving any event items after the restart. I am afraid to collect from the sheep just in case they stopped giving as well. I will need the sweaters to make the toy boats I am no longer finding in the fishing spot.

I have been receiving two to three cookies from the trees every collection but that was before the restart. I have noticed that the closer we get to the mining part of the event the few mining tools my pets are dropping. Thank goodness I have been hoarding mining tools but if the fishing spot is empty then mine probably is as well.

NYM9CX - Thanks for the info on the last giving step. With just new skins I will skip this part. I was really hoping for a pet at the end.

Hmmm..... now that they (TL) want 20 anchovies from us, I don't get any by fishing :(
I had more then 50 bait and just received 3 anschvies :(
Lots of other fish now...
They make the game more difficukt for us :(
Hate this :(
Now I still need 17 anchovies...but How...if they not let us?

I made that mistake too, wasted 4 packages, I'm being very careful now, double checking what items I'm crafting in the log cabin.

I'm a bit worried about mining too, since I got a lot of toy ships, I can use them to make the wrapped stone. My animals are giving me less items too, especially the sheeps and apple trees are giving me nothing, zero, nada...

I just received my pet polar bear cub after turning in my 17th collection, so it can be done!

To get the toy boats, I also used about 100 dough baits that I had hoarded, and I agree with the above poster who suggested that fishing in bulk seems to give a better drop rate for the boats. Since then I have fished with one or two baits at a time as they are crafted, and the drop rate seems nowhere near as good. Also, I had hoarded three precious golden lures from previous events/packs/Stormies shop, and one of those gave me 14 boats in one hit.

Worst drop rates for me at the moment seem to be the apple trees and sheep; best have been the pigs and chickens. Hit-and-miss ones are deliveries, dairy, cider mill, bed and breakfast, and fishing pond.

I'm going to keep crafting collection items in the elves' bungalow so that I can stock up on decorations. Good luck everyone!

mearro
12-18-16, 11:11 AM
Ok, this event is not so bad. I just got the pet now, the decorations are nice too so I will keep going to get as many as I can. Generally, I'm quite pleased. I'm glad I didn't have to use mining tools at all, will save them for next event.

I'm also having a hard time with the apple trees. Are trees a "standard crop"? I was thinking about using a bronze bell to buy a crop boost.

My toy boats are fine, I also hoarded bait and bulk fished last night. I only had 40 but, it was enough to get me a comfortable amount of boats. I've done the same with pick axes and shovels. I hope that works out for me too

I hate these horrible luck events. I just handed in tons of collections and got tons of the tree , stupid paths, and presents. Not one pet..These luck events are not fair. All that work and no end prize.storm 8 is the worst.the events should be if you do the work, you get the prize. Not hope you get lucky. I will not spend another penny on storm 8 games.

lynard12
12-18-16, 04:01 PM
Trying to stay positive but so frustrating with luck based. So much work and I have 23 paths, numerous trees, 2 sleighs, presents and no pet.
The pond was actually great for drops. Mine not so much have already blown through 20+ tools. Apples is awful too...
At least with previous luck events if you did the goals you got a pet.....I should've saved all my drops and not wasted them for skins😕

I wish they would not make the mine part of these events. I just used 40 picks and shovels and only got the christmas coal one time, and then when I exited the mine I got the 'walking chicken' icon and it took it away but still kept the shovel I had just used to get it. I spent 9 days getting the other items and now they are worthless!

This is a 1000% luck event. I didn't craft anything at my log cabin, but I got 3 coals in a row.

And that made me won the polar cub at my 5th try, thanks to my bad wifi connection, I failed to get the 2x corner snow path and 2x sleighs, also the trees. In total, I (only) won the cub and 3x snow path. I did not win anything on yesterday event. I guess this time I'm just lucky enough to win the grandprize. Thank you Storm8.

35050

35049

Each of the igloos can max keep 3 snowy pets. Is it for any pet? Or only for the polar cubs?
Since this is a luck based event, I'd like to chase my 2nd or 3rd cub if I could. Please no offense :o I wish TL tell us the number of lost cubs we are chasing, if it is limited in the beginning, I'll stop seeking now, hehe...

Thanks again Storm8, I didn't remember to purchase a Siberian Husky but I found him on my cellar, I didn't remember my coins number too (Siberian Husky worthed $100,000) but I don't mind, because the Husky is very cute. :o

Congratulations to those whom got the bear. I'm DONE deliveries have stopped along with no prizes from apple trees on day 9. Completed all the side events except giving boats and coal to get the sheep skin. I've turned in 35 collections. ( Yes shutting down and re-starting game). Received no bear. Luck people it is not it's greed and TL being manipulative against the people playing these games. TL you control this event from the beginning. Only certain gamers got to purchase the cabin. I was not, nor have not wanted to be treated special. Always bought whatever the extra multipler to produce the gifts in this type of event. Excepted a challenge, not greed.I played this game and spent money on gems along with working 24/7 trying to complete these events and in the end don't get the final prize. DONE, DONE...I'm stopping now. Good-bye. Sorry neighbors.

What, it doesn't go to the igloo habitat? What a bummer. Thanks, now I know not to get it. I wanted to add it to the ghost dog and polar bear. Maybe one day they will make a penguin pet.

About winning polar bears, someone posted winning 2 or 3 of them so they don't seem to be limited?

You definitely should buy the Siberian Husky cos it really is a great bargain now that it's being offered as a coin pet. I bought it using gems buying darts from the Tree House when it was first released years ago. I think I paid 180 gems for it.

I've given up trying for the boats. I have been fishing since this event started and only caught one boat. I made 2 for a total of 3 and that's all I have. Very frustrated and I haven't heard back from Storm8. And because I'm not getting all the stuff needed to turn in for a prize, except once, all I got was a pile of gifts.

Guess what I got, sleighs, presents, a snow man, Xmas tree and loads of stupid stepping stones but guess what, NO POLAR BEAR CUB, now I have no chance of getting it as ran out of mining tools, and UK time difference means the time will expire when I'm asleep.
