  1. Fantastic info as always thanks LPNITA
    I reached maximum ornate tiles and counted 76 but assume it’s 75? I found that plenty anyhoo…wasn’t sure if known already.
    Looks like Sophie has some nice animated jobs but EA doesn’t tell you before forking donuts so crew come here to see the details first. Cheers

  3. LPN – thanks for the info. I am about 1000 away from the final Act 1 prize. I can easily do that between the Wooly House, Snowman and merrymakers. I have not yet completed the Gingerbreadhouse. 2 questions, will upgrading the gingerbread house be possible in Act 2 (or do you need to complete by Act 1) and will the payout be the new Act 2 currency? I rather save the end for Act 2 and use those points towards Act 2 and not Bonuts,
