  1. So the Shelbyville deal… Is that something that we’re waiting for EA to unlock? I haven’t seen anything about it so far.


    1. No you just go to the donuts store and get them with the donut packs

    Most importantly: they got rid of that 6s ‘Learn About Christmas’ task that was sticking every job list to the top. It was driving me CRAZY.


  3. Yeah, I’m in the same boat. Have Ice Princess Martin from previous event and now have his task stuck there in the task book. Yet another bug from EA, though in fairness it’s a minor one this time. Not a big deal as far as I’m concerned. Happy to just ignore it, but can understand how it could bother others though.


  4. Is the glass cathedral available because I don’t see it ?


    1. from january 3rd it’s a prize of the HtH update


  5. Last time the Ice Palace and the Snow Globe were offered, I was out of sprinklers. Now I have them. YEAH 😀


  6. I received Ice Princess Martin in a previous event, without having to buy the ice palace. But with the new update, I started the quest “The Princess Nerd” with part 1 but then part 2 requires the ice palace, which I don’t have and I’m not really planning on buying it. But the problem is that it stays in my task book, will this stay in my task book forever then?


    1. didn’t you complete his questline before?


      1. no, Iceprincess martin only have two tasks without the castle.
        The first questline, when we got him for free, was different and did not require the castle and it is done.
        EA made the same mistake as with the Collider, treating the skin+building as one, requiring both, AND starting the premium questline automatically if you have the skin, practiclly forcing you to buy the castle, if you dont want tasks stuck in the book.
