  1. THANK YOU to EA/PLAYFISH for prices and values that closely match!!! The last few item drops have been way off base compared to each other.

    The Victorian theme is very cool. Excellent job on their part!

  5. Honestly, I was just a tad disappointed with the Victorian theme. I was looking forward to buying pretty much EVERYTHING but sadly a lot of the items I had wanted costed Simcash. Atleast the cute one out of the two dresses is 12k and not Simcash. :")

  14. Thank you whoever left the comment about wearing a Victorian clothing item when doing "festive hug". Solved my problem.

  15. give festive hugs with Victorian (turkey or top hat) on. Also, when are we going to get more than just one mission at a time? I have beaten all of the other missions, so now I have to wait days to have any missions at all? It only comes up, "more on the way" You may lose alot of users this way. Even simple missions are better than none at all...
