    AWESOME, @nopu !!! I also note that you purposefully left the cupcake alone ….. & can’t help but wonder why ….. since it looks like it’s more difficult to score so high w/o ‘taking out’ the goofy cupcake. Very strange …. but FUN video; THX!
    Best & Cheers, Rogue :)

    That was just to get three stars. In this tournament you can collect 20 cupcakes every day and feed them to the monsters without having to have three stars.
    Only: what happens to the pumpkins collected?

    what can you do with ‘pumpkins’ earned – by feeding whatever the other things are? Anyone know? THX! :-)

    By Teresa

    I was wondering about the cupcake eating monsters too !! Very vague…..

    By Teresa

    I’m wondering about that too !!

    There’s a question mark on the “Feed Me” screen so I looked at that and it says that the cupcakes stop the pigs turning into monsters – in past years, the monsters have made it harder to complete levels so I’m making sure I get 20 cupcakes every day.

    It also says that cupcakes can be used to earn PUs – I’ve now got 8 pumpkins and I’m thinking they might be what you exchange for PUs at some point. Of course, I could be 200% wrong, lol

    By Kat

    Which do you feed? The pigs or the monsters? And what about the pumpkins?

    I don’t think understand this. Any clues?

    I don’t think anyone has any idea of what Rovio has done this week!! The Pop Up (continuous) boxes are irritating!!

    By Lucille Cloutier

    This is going on until the end of the month!! ” I wish they would give us a better explanation.

    Not even going to bother with it…and I certainly wouldn’t waste PUs.

    For not being able to figure any of it out, I thought I was even dumber than I am :-O …. :) …. so THX again!

    OH …. & thanks, also, @terribletom !!! As I mentioned,
    since – for the life of me – I could NOT figure any of it out, & thought I was even dumber than I am(?) :-O …. :) …. so, anyway, THX again!

    Another way for Rovio to get us to burn power ups. To get cupcakes I just go through and do no power up levels until I get cupcakes. I have no clue what to do with these.

    By Bill

    This is just another way for ROVIO to,spam us on mobile every 5 complete levels with a video ad(we pay for these in battery and device abuse by ROVIO), and of course the spam about hostess cupcakes that is also paying ROVIO to spam us with numerous ads.
    As far as final outcome, who knows? Since I don’t use power ups, it makes little difference to me if I get more or not!
    I just play every day to get a complete level 20 times on an easy to star level.

    Emulators for pc?
    My iPad Air is getting really clunky since Apple had the temerity to release iOS 11 with it’s battery sucking whatever.

    I’m just wonder if players here have a recommendation about PC emulators.
    Bluestacks, Nox, or other(s)?

    i use nox and bluestacks

    By Bill

    Thanks for the response.
    Any specific reason for both?
    Do you have Both on one device, or separate units?
    I put BS on laptop, and Nox on desktop. Don’t see much difference in ABF play between the two so far.

    Anyone know if there is an advantage to building up a larger number of cupcakes and feeding them all at once vs. feeding them in small amounts? I’ve been dutifully collecting my 20 cupcakes a day, and right now I have 40 collected (20 yesterday & 20 today). Is there an advantage to feeding the 40 (or more) at once vs just feeding the 20 per day? And the event says it has 17 more days, do the cupcakes carry over between tournaments? If I hold onto my 40 that I have and the new tournament starts tomorrow, will I have 60 cupcakes? It seems that you get 1 pumpkin for every 5 cupcakes you feed. Sorry for the long question, there just isn’t a lot of info about thie cupcakes and pumpkins.

    As I understand there is a daily reset. So you have to play every day to get those cupcakes and feed the monster the same day.

    I collected the 20 yesterday and didn’t feed the monsters, and then collected the 20 for today, and it shows now I have 40. I haven’t fed them as I was wondering if there was an advantage to feeding a large amount at once, but I don’t want to lose them if they reset with the new tournament.

    Thank you so very much @irishheart !!! I DO understand that we have not met … & do not know each other; however, from my end, I feel certain that we could become the very best of friends :-) …..in other words, your question has made me feel like there’s some hope that I’m a little less of a moron than I thought I was :-) . Your summary/question(s) precisely details the same set of concerns that I’ve had for a while and just figured everybody knew but me :-) …. anyway, I remain pretty much clueless about the whole thing …… other than whatever ‘benefit’ there may be for the player, I think it mostly incorporates (MORE) advertising …..and that’s always a good thing (aargh; just kidding) !!! I have always enjoyed the Angry Birds Nest ….. I think primarily because it is a place of happiness ….. at least for me :-O :) ….and, it’s just been (extra) FUN today ….. & you’ve made me a really happy/smiley person! {I’m old, whiny & disabled & hurt some …. & rarely hear from folks – [who needs it :-) ]} … so thank you again! Best and Cheers, Rogue : – ) .
    By the way I have collected a bunch of pumpkins ….. the only problem is I have no idea whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing (grins/laughs/LOL ).

    @ridoty How do you collect these pumpkins?? Or anyone else know how??
    Thanks in advance!

    Rank: Champion with 3385 points
    By Cate (@catie)

    @terribletom Click on the small “event” panel beside the “star cup” panel. Choose one of the monsters and click “feed me”. You’ll get one pumpkin per five cupcakes.

    I held onto my 40 cupcakes, and when the new tournament started tonight I still have them. So we can bank the cupcakes to feed a large amount at once, still not sure if there is any advantage to doing that or not. I think I will test it and collect 100 cupcakes to feed at once, and I’ll report back the results.

    Rank: Hardened with 555 points
    By IrishHeart (@irishheart)

    If anyone is still interested, there is no advantage or disadvantage to banking the cupcakes and feeding a large amount at once. I saved 100 cupcakes up and fed them all at once, and nothing was different than if I had fed cupcakes. I got my 20 pumpkins and that was it.
    On a side note,I bet we will have the option to purchase additional pumpkins when it comes time to use them.

    I found differences between mobile and PC play

    Cupcake location on PC: http://wegaweb.de/ABF/ABFTMobLocPC.jpg
    Cupcake location on Mobile: http://wegaweb.de/ABF/ABFTMobLoc.jpg

    and sometimes cupcake suddently disappeaers but counts as hit: http://wegaweb.de/ABF/ABFTMobDis.jpg
