How many emblems do you need per day to get all the prizes?

Several have asked, how many emblems do I need per day in order to win all of the prizes? I’ve done a calculation, starting with information provided by minicha.

Warning, math ahead!

The event started on June 3rd, when the update started to hit the servers around 17:00 GMT. It then took a 16 hour build of the Stonecutters Lodge, plus a 4 hour task by Homer. I didn’t start collecting until about 19:00 GMT on June 4th. The event is scheduled to end at 08:00 GMT on July 2nd. There are about 27*24+13=661 hours in the event. It takes 35000 emblems to get all 10 prizes. Divided by 661 gives 52.95 emblems per hour, or 1271 per day. For safety sake, let’s say you would need to be earning around 1300 emblems per day.

The chart below shows how many emblems you should earn, if you started on June 4th.

Date # Emblems Prize Awarded at
June 5 1,300
June 6 2,600 Sacred Parchment 1,450
June 7 3,900
June 8 5,200 No. 36 4,000
June 9 6,500 Chest of Sacred Artifacts 6,500
June 10 7,800
June 11 9,100
June 12 10,400 No. 85 & No. 600 10,000
June 13 11,700
June 14 13,000
June 15 14,300 No. 29 & Money Pool 14,000
June 16 15,600
June 17 16,900
June 18 18,200  No. 50 & No. 79  18,000
June 19 19,500
June 20 20,800
June 21 22,100
June 22 23,400  Stone of Triumph 22,500
June 23 24,700
June 24 26,000
June 25 27,300
June 26 28,600  No. 5, No. 12, No. 14 28,000
June 27 29,900
June 28 31,200
June 29 32,500  Stonecutters Table 31,500
June 30 33,800
July 1 35,000  Satan’s Anvil 35,000

Another way to figure out how many emblems you still need per day is to divide the remaining emblems (35000 – your current count) by the number of days left in the event (today there are 24 left). For example, if you have 4000 emblems now, that’s 35000-4000=31000, and 31000/24 = 1292 per day.

  1. Does anyone know if there is a slight pissibility this event will be extended? It seems like every event is extended. And I had game issues one day and for some reason TO didn’t work so I missed a whole day of tasks and emblem collecting and now I’m behind by about 1500 emblems. So I’m irked bc the anvil prize is one of the ones I really wanted and now I might not get it. 😩

  2. I need a lot more neighbors to be able to make my emblem quota but I’m not sure the best way to go about it? What do you guys recommend? My game name is lgemmell1855 and I make sure to tap my neighbors buildings everyday! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    • Best way is to get good friends who visit you regularly. Also when visiting friends (and you still have the 60 actions which earn emblems) tap the Stonecutters Lodge in friends’ cities. It earns 5 emblems, when all other buildings earn 1.

  3. Got the final prize yesterday despite not completing all of No.1’s tasks every day. Definitely helps keeping your lodge clear and checking regularly to maximise the emblems from visitors – 5 rather than 1.

    Also pleased to see they’ve kept up the donut prizes for continuing to collect every 3000 emblems and there’s still the opportunity for more donuts from friends visits.

    Finally got a response and free donuts for my Easter glitch where I was losing gold eggs.

  4. I’m falling behind with my emblem collection short of spending loads of doghnuts are there other ways to meet and beat the daily quota required? It was tight just based on 1300 per day now I need something like 1500 or more

    • Use the 60 actions at friends wisely. Only tap the Lodges. It will take more time but pays better. Clear your town fast when visitors drop in, turn on the notifications, as pyramids pays on a sliding scale from 5 within the first hours to 1 if you only clear once a day. Set alarms for the tasks given by No1 so you get all four.
      If you’re willing to spend donuts, decide how many on each item, lets say 10 and stick with it.

  5. I’ve been having trouble completing all of #1’s tasks in time. I think it might be because of the time difference so I was wondering if anyone else was having this problem. The clock resets at around 1am here so unless I want to stay up I’ll have to finish with many hours to spare and I won’t be able to start the next round for at least 8 hours (which is being polite, I’ve been having trouble getting up so it’s a lot longer than that). I’ve been checking in on the game a lot so I don’t waste time between tasks but it ends up being a gamble depending on how long the tasks I’m assigned are.

    • Yep, if you’ve maxed out the Friend Point level, there’s a 1 in 200 chance of earning a donut while doing an action in a friend’s city.

      • I have two different games, and on each one there are 5 to 10 friends that have the stonecutter lodge but no cameras. I thought, as mrfy said, that maybe they hadn’t done homers task. So I checked to see if they have been playing. And they have been. It just seems weird that none of them had finished the four hour task. It will be interesting to see what EA says.

    • That is a question that should be posted on EAs forum if you’d like an answer as we have no idea why EA decides to do whatever they choose to do. Topix is in no way or form associated with EA so we can not answer these types of questions.

    • If I remember correctly, Helloween 2013 was the last event without this limit. Back then, I realized I can progress really quickly by having (and visiting) 100 “friends”. It was too easy.
      So my guess is: EA doesn’t want to make it too easy. But neither do they want to penalize those who have not searched the Internet for “friends”. I’m fine with it.
      (More cynical guess: Their servers can’t handle too many requests of this type, spiking during the events. So they limit the incentives for making those requests. But this guess is based on nothing, just trying to be mean.)

    • My guess is that EA wants to pace us. They also want people interacting.

      I say this because your 60 taps are worth 1 each, or 5 if you tap on someone’s lodge. Other than going through the tasks, the only — and best — way to get emblems is to have your friends VISIT YOU. Every time something in your town gets tapped you earn 5 emblems. (100 people x 3 taps x 5 emblems = 1500 daily!!!) That’s better than the thousand you’ll get IF you complete all four of Number One’s tasks.

      Your friend likely got nothing for helping you out except the reasonable expectation that if you’re a good neighbour you will reciprocate.

      Which brings me to a point that someone else below said about not having to do more than 60 taps (=20 friends) and the required tasks and they’ll get everything with little effort. (I won’t embarrass them with a direct answer.)

      Not cool! To that other person I say: I don’t want you to be MY neighbour. People like that don’t last in my neighbourhood. I’ve played this game since nearly the beginning, and one third of my neighbours have been with me all this time. We play events fairly. I give everyone a few byes: life happens.

      I have loads of invitations from people and if a neighbour proves to be a deadbeat I dump them and accept one of those other invitations. Judging by the fact that I find new invitations every day, I assume they’re from people who feel the same way.

      (BTW: NONE of my game names is Eleanor Abernathy and I won’t post them here. Thanks, but I have all the invitations I need at the moment.)

      • I understand that, but many people hardly have the time to do those sixty taps, let alone more that won’t help them get emblems! I know it can be frustrating so I do see your point, but I have about an hour on my tablet a day and that’s it. I do find it tedious to constantly tap and I have other things I want to do as well.

  11. 35,000 Emblems is an absurd number. I’m usually not on when people tap on my town so I only get 1 emblem each. I can’t finish all of the tasks in 24 hours because I started late and their just isn’t enough time (it would also be weird to time it). Does anyone else find it tedious to tap tap tap through all friends (if I don’t do it in one I’ll forget, I end up only doing about half anyway because all in one really is tedious). Especially since you can get 3 emblems per town at most. Sorry for the random cynicism, this just made me realize that there’s absolutely no chance whatsoever of me even getting most of these. I only have 700 or so.

    • You can always use Donuts to get the prizes.
      -Get Emblems by doing the Main Quest (Lisa and Bart are most frequently used for this).
      -Do the tasks Number 1 gives you (in form of hidden tasks) 4 a day pays 1000 Emblems.
      -Solve the Sacret Parchment Riddles. A new is released every day at 10am CET/ 9am GMT – 4am on the US Eastcoast/1am on the US Westcoast
      -Spy on your neighbours – 60 actions a day but keep visiting and give pyramids to All your friends. If you only tap the Lodge in each town you’ll get 5 emblems and that is 300 in total for all 60 actions.
      -Tapping Pyramids in your own town, left by good neighboureenos. The sooner you remove a pyramid the more Emblems you get. A sliding scale starting at 5 Es.
      -Catching/tapping the Robed Orders agents that pop up in your town will give you 4 Es/ agent.
      -The Chest of Sacred Artifacts pays out in Es and is the third Prize. It can also be bought for 55 Donuts. Do Not buy if you only want one!
      -The Big Pyramid costs 100 Donuts and pays out in Es.
      -Every Stoncutter, won or bought with Donuts, has a miniquest and when you complete their questlines there’s an Emblem bonus.

  14. Not sure if it’s designed this way or just a lucky break, but I got 2 doughnuts (1 doughnut given out at two separate times) while tapping on neighbors after I had done my initial 60 taps. Maybe another bit of motivation for us to all tap on our neighbors even if it doesn’t earn us anything right then? Maybe just random luck (though it’s only happened a handful of times before, so twice in a day seems like a lot). Has this happened to anyone else?

  15. Am I correct in thinking I read to check the game often because the value of the emblems decrease over time? In the mornings on my first check of the game, a lot of my friends have visited me overnight but I mostly get only one emblem each. I’m guessing these friends are on the other side of the world. I’m on the eastern US. I have no plans to check the game during the night. If this is so, this bugs me a bit. I have no way of knowing where my friends are so to lose the value of emblems over night is a little annoying. Just throwing this out there to see if I’m right and if so how what do others think of this?

  16. Has anyone else been having issues when visiting other Springfields? Both my friend and I keep getting thrown out of the game when visiting. Game crashes and brings us to the home screen. It’s happening to her more than me. She started the event a week or two before me and I am now beating her by 400 emblems because she can’t visit other towns. If there is anyway EA sees this; please fix visiting other speingfeilds bug. It is probably stopping a lot more than us two from earning the emblems we need to unlock prizes. It’s a shame; this is the coolest and most fun event since Halloween. I was almost ready to give up on you TSTO; this event is what kept me playing! Please fix and continue with the awesome updates like this one!

    • Not sure if people realize this, but once you finish the 60 for the day, if you continue tapping your remaining neighbors that are participating in the event, you leave pyramids on their buildings and your neighbors still get emblems even though you do not. This doesn’t help your own emblem count for that round of tapping, but if everyone keeps tapping all their neighbors, everyone can continue to get emblems including you.

    • If you do all of Number 1’s tasks in a day, that’s 1000 emblems right there. Plus your 60 for visiting your neighbors leaves 240 emblems to collect from your neighbors visiting you. If you tap the eye symbols within the first hour you get 5 emblems from each symbol, so you only need 16 neighbors tapping 3 buildings each to make up the difference. It shouldn’t be too hard to get the required emblems, I’m already at 11,000 with no cheating.

      • You still get donuts for tapping neighbours as well, so its worth doing the visits even after you have reached the emblem count for the day. I usually get 2 or 3 free donuts each day.

  17. Thanks for the calculation. I had done it myself, and I realized: I can make it to the Stonecutters Table (Satan’s Anvil is ugly) without spending donuts!
    So every free player should be happy. He needs to tap a lot, visit his Springfield maybe ten times a day and all his 100 friends’ towns twice a day (if he wants to spy on Lodges, only). But he can do it.
    Those who spend money on donuts, can save some of the hassle and / or concentrate on the premium items and skins. But again, you can calculate how much you have to spend to reach your personal goal.
    After the gambling on Christmas and Easter, EA has finally found out how to design an event!

If you hit all No1’s tasks and your friends towns, plus spying cameras in your town and the robed figures, the 1300 daily target is relatively ok. Have missed a couple of No1’s tasks as I can’t always get on often enough but at least they roll over to the following day. Also daily puzzles add to the total.

  21. Lmao thank you for “Warning, Math Ahead”. My brain shuts down when it sees numbers. For the math impaired like myself, I simply scanned the math (quickly to avoid a brain meltdown) and I looked for my emblem count now. Then I relaxed and saw that I’m at almost June 9ths total. Which means I’m ok. So I’ll be booking marking the page so I can return and check my progress. Thanks for covering all angles of the math mrfry.
