1) This makes the final prize look attainable after all. If goals 11-13 had been like 9 and 10, no way would I have been able to do it! But considering it's still only the middle of the first week of a two-week event, I'm feeling cautiously optimistic.
2) This event reminds me very, VERY much of the Press Your Luck event (which I hated) with its endless crafting of different parts which all required rainbow pots. Much like now the different aquariums and what not all require marble aquariums. In that event there also were some type of plants we could only collect from every 1.5/2 hours (not sure anymore; I do remember the max number was lower than ten). And, while it was extremely slow, tedious going for much of the event, the last few goals were easy.
