What is the average amount of Pacifiers there is to get in the Maggie Special act while playing diligently?
Without considering any premiums, let’s break it down by tasks and taps.
Daily play reward:
The daily play reward varies incrementally each day, from 150 Pacifiers to 500 Pacifiers. Every 5 days that total will be 1400 Pacifiers. Over 17 days, on average (an approximation due to everyone having a different daily reward and the total days not being divisible by 5), the total amount of Pacifiers will by 4760.
1400/5d x 17d = 4760
In your local town you will get 8 Pacifiers for every bear, 12 bears an hour. Tapping every 4 hours, 4 times a day equals 1536 Pacifiers. Add a 5 hour overnight collection and the daily total is approximately 2016 Pacifiers.
8 x 12/h x 4h x 4 + 8 x 12/h x 5h = 2016
Over 17 days, that will come to 34,272 Pacifiers.
2016 x 17d = 34272
When visiting neighbors you will get 3 Pacifiers for the first 9 bears tapped plus 1 Pacifier for each of the next 41 bears equals 68 Pacifiers each day.
3 x 9 + 1 x 41 = 68
Over 17 days, that comes to 1156 Pacifiers.
68 x 17d = 1156
If you send Maggie on her 4 hour task (the one with the best Pacifier earning ratio) 4 times a day, you’ll earn 24 Pacifiers a day.
6/4h x 4 = 24
Over 17 days, that will be 408 Pacifiers.
24 x 17d = 408
Sending Marge on her joint task with Maggie once a night (as opposed to 3 times a day) will yield 18 Pacifiers per day.
18/8h = 18
That will be 306 Pacifiers over 17 days.
18 x 17d = 306
An average of 2406 Pacifiers can be earned each day (with diligent tapping), with a total of 40,902 Pacifiers earned over the 17 days. The final prize only requires 27,400 Pacifiers, leaving you with a 13,502 Pacifier overflow that can be used in the bonus rounds.
