    Hi Karine, we had a very active neighbourhood but people got bored with the game after a while. Currently there are 6 very active players who do the Derby each week. We aim to get the 9 horseshoe prizes each week ( 12 prizes on a bingo week). We don't worry about the prizes for coming first, second or third as the prizes are not worth the extra effort, in our opinion.
    Tasks under 250 points are trashed. In reality we do tend to go for tasks over 300. Some people like to do 10 tasks as they love doing the tasks. I rarely do the extra task as I don't buy diamonds with real money but I know a lot of people who do buy them.
    We ask people to opt out on a week where they don't think that they can contribute 1000 points in a week. This takes the pressure off when life gets too busy on those occasional weeks when we don't have time to finish a task in time.
    We have tried many ways to attract new members but it has become more difficult. A year ago I placed an advert for new members on the Hayday forum and had 2 new low level players. We helped them a lot but they moved on after 6 months as they wanted to chat 24/7 and our current neighbourhood members all work and/or have children.
    We had an anyone can join policy but we had new players join for a few weeks who received lots of help from us but gave nothing in return and only asked for things rather than contributing to chat or crates. So we are now trying request to join. I wish we could send invites to any game friend rather than just GC or Facebook friends.
    Hope this helps.

    I play derby with 2 other people and we play to win, everyone finishes in less than 24 hours! we prestack our machines the day before, gather townies, and someone watches the board deleting every 30 minutes. We only do the “fast” tasks, which are boats, trucks, town, and production usually. Derby started Tuesday, and I finished right when I woke up on Wednesday

    Well done Andrea! That is very impressive. I am pleased to see that all your efforts focus on 24 hours so that you are not working hard all week. Unfortunately it wouldn't work for me as I can only give the odd hour each day to the game

    Wow, Andrea, that’s crazy fast! It would be cool to be done so quickly though, I think.

    Anyone else? How are hoods and derby going? Anyone looking for a new hood?

    Hi Karine, this is a bit of a loaded question! We also had someone in our old hood who started out ok then turned bat s**t crazy! I think some people get way too competitive with the derby and they forget how to behave.

    So a couple of us left and started another hood. I must admit, I’m enjoying playing in a smaller hood now, where there is no competition for tasks and everyone is very relaxed. There are five of us in our hood and six farms. It’s lovely, it works so well!

    We usually do 320/400 tasks, depending on the derby, and I think we trash tasks below 310, or thereabouts. If someone can’t wait around for a full point task, no one minds if they do a lower point one. This doesn’t actually happen very often though. I found that when you do place in the first three, the prizes are so underwhelming, that it doesn’t really motivate me to bust a gut to place in the top three. My reason for playing HD is largely to relax and for the wonderful company, so if it isn’t fun, what’s the point?!

    Andrea how do you decide which machines to stack? I’ve tried that in previous derbies and always got it wrong.

    Hi, I don't know how Anthea plans it but sometimes there is a notification telling which are likely to be the special items for that Derby. If so I stack up with those items. Otherwise I tend to go for white sweaters, tomato juice, toffee, blackberry muffins, pumpkin pies and chilli popcorn on the off chance that these will turn up. I usually find one or two tasks asking for these.

    Thanks Jo. Many of the basket tasks seem to repeat as well. I remember for one derby. Loading up machines in advance and I got them all wrong!
