For those of you holding your breath...

6 days later and I'm up about 400 candies to 434 candies. 8 days to go, should top 900, thus guaranteeing Jester's Tavern even without bonus candies.

Opened several chests earlier today, got to 9 flags short of Jester's Tavern (+4 3x4 Orcish Floats for crafting)

Gradually collected just enough to open ONE more chest on Orcish Float day... Bonus candies. Was able to open several more chests, one more bonus candies, bada-bing bada-boom, completed Jester's Tavern, and one more Orcish Float.

If my notes are correct, that's:

13 days

2,145 sequential + 455 daily + 669 pickup (51.5 candies per day?!) = 3,269 initial candies

3,269 initial candies + 1,175 bonus candies= 4,444 effective candies

101 chests

181 flags (18.1 initial candies/flag, 24.5 effective candies/flag?!)

10 bonus candy results (9.9%)

9 Grand Prizes (including the full 5-piece set)

10 Elvish Floats and 4 Orcish Floats (13.9% daily)

198 squares of craftabale squares, good for 17,820 Spell Fragments at my current Level 3 Magic Academy.

On the minus side:

1) I'm sitting on a wealth of potential Spell Fragments and I'm out of Silk relics to make more Catalysts.

2) I placed the 4 pieces of Carnival set along with two backlogged sets in my city 6 days ago. I don't have the space in my current or projected end-of-current-chapter city planning to add the Jester's Tavern to my map.
