Extended Tea Party Toy Has Dropped!

Update: Just got word from our friends at TinyCo that the extension will end at 9pm TinyCo Time (PDT)…which is midnight on the East Coast & 0400GMT.

We were hoping (and they were pushing) for a 24 hr extension…BUT with the new update due to drop tomorrow (7/24) they’re up against TIGHT time restrictions. ย Hopefully letting you guys know now about the end time will help you get everything you need to unlock your final toys….

Hello There Clammers!

Just after 1pm TinyCo Time (PDT) the new toy for the extended portion of the event has dropped…

2014-07-23 20.08.15

The new toy to collect is the Robotย Trap Jaw. (thank you to the readers who pointed it out to me ๐Ÿ™‚ )

All the same rules as before apply with regards to characters that can earn the Robot and the task length.

And we can now confirm….at least in my B game…nothing new has been added to the box. ย So it’s the exact same content as before, just 1 extra day for it all.

Good Luck!

  1. Stewie is giving Rupert missions now! And here I thought he was just going to walk around and chat on the cell phone all day. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Like many others, I got everything except Rupert…but instead of being mad about it, here’s my positive spin on it:

    The total value of ALL the prizes in the toy box comes out to be worth $23,500 and 280 Clams!!! (See breakdown of item values at end of post, for all you fellow geeks out there.)

    So, think about it like this– Have you ever gotten a birthday present that wasn’t exactly what you wanted but you knew that it was actually a pretty expensive gift? You’re grateful to the gift-giver because you know that they “shelled out” (clam shells, get it?!) a lot on you, even though they didn’t have to; and so you respect them for their efforts nonetheless. That’s how we Rupert-less players should look at TinyCo post-tea-party-event, I think. That’s right, TinyCo is basically your well-meaning grandmother who didn’t have to get you anything at all for your stupid birthday, but she was generous enough to spend big bucks on your gift that you only kinda wanted–which isn’t such a bad thing, now is it?? …Besides, remember that the last time she gave you a gift, it was a double dose of Dry Bush Flammable Gardens, 3 Wheelchair Skateparks, and crapload of Jelly-Yo Shots in every color except for the one that you actually needed at that time!!! Comparatively, this was MUCH better, right?!? (I thought so.)

    As promised, here’s the breakdown of prize values from the 11 toy box prizes that didn’t have a teddy bear head+human body:

    $5,000 — Big Bubbly Fountain (champagne glass)
    $7,500 — Gold Digger Island
    $2,000 — Koi Pond
    ___(Subtotal of money-priced prizes = $23,500)___

    5ยข — (that’s right, the “ยข” now means “clams”) — Stewie Flower

    10ยข — Spotlights (animated)
    40ยข — Pawtucket beer truck

      • They didn’t start the extension until the afternoon saying we had another day, then ninja shortened it to basically 12 hours leaving freemium players no chance of more than one box. Total bs. Sorry, I don’t check this site hourly for updates on posts I’ve already read to find out something they should have told us in game.. They would have been better off not extending it at all, I’d be far less sour about coming 2 short of Rupert than I am now..

  13. I got everything except Rupert & the beer truck. I ended up spending a lot if clams on speeding up tasks & am pretty annoyed that I wasted them, even though I liked the prizes.

  14. I have mixed feeling about this up-date. If you are, like me, a new quahog player you don’t have many characters to do the 4h quest parts. I have 3 if i’m not mistaken.

  15. I just opened my last box, ‘Gold-digger Island’… To say I’m a little upset that I got everything except Rupert (the only reason I played the event) would be an understatement.
    Staying up all night for four days collecting stuff and then trading it just for a slim chance of getting what you want just makes the game frustrating to me and I want it to be fun.
    Looking forward to the Comicon event, but I’ll be staying clear of mystery boxes from now on,Too Stressful ๐Ÿ˜›

  20. With the new event not available until July 31 on Android, I’m beginning to question whether or not it was prudent to spend my last remaining clams on a box. (It’s was still available at 2:30am when I last checked.) I had two more boxes so it was a 50/50 shot. Thank god I got Rupert or I may have been drowning my sorrows in some ice cream at 2:30am.

    Like

  21. Nope, no Rupert for me. *sad face*

    I’m glad there is a gap with Android getting this event. I’m actually so tired of TC and it’s complicated and not-quite thought-out events for the time being! Too many last minute changes and additions to the events in the last few weeks, and it is extremely frustrating. I do hope over time that they get their butts together.

    I realize this is a new game, but certainly the company realizes that last minute and unannounced events, along with extremely stressful and time-constrained gameplay requirements, will cause players to drop the game entirely. Players stop playing? Less money for TinyCo. Less money? Crappier updates to get the diehard players to spend money.

    But hey. It’s a business. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m also of the school of thought that the land release prior to the new district was because everyone had a lot of coins stockpiled, and then this little event with Rupert and the Comic Con one now coming today will further extend game time for freemium players. Then people will play longer and probably buy clams because the events are limited time.

    In the end, this is simply a game. Just like any game you get nowadays, it can be played as cheaply or expensively as you wish. Personally, I can download other games that I find more worth the money than this one, for now. Not sure that the CHANCE at getting a shirtless teddy running around is worth the real cash, because a meal from McDonald’s or a new nail polish is a little more fulfilling and promising right now. ๐Ÿ˜› Until then, I remain freemium until the company starts to get organized!

  22. Not sure what happening with these times I had 2 prizes left (1 being rupert) loads of time I thought, checked here as always and read was due to end at 9pm (5am here in the UK) it was still open at 7am so I purchased some clams rushed my last few tasks and finally got rupert on my last box. I was desperate for him as I have all other premium characters so wanted the 100 clam bonus.

    Happy days as I now have 200 clams ready for the new event

    So thank you as always for keeping us updated on all things family guy quest for stuff

  27. Man, this entire event has just been a trainwreck for me from the beginning. Now that it’s all said and done, I didn’t manage to get Rupert after trying so desperately to get him and spending 110 clams. With only 4 items left to “randomly” get on my last box and still not getting him, I had to resort to doing the hard reset method and after 43, yes 43, repeated Rupert-less tries (with prizes changing most of the time), the game caught on to my tricks and gave me the last item that I had won. Either the odds of getting Rupert truly weren’t 1 in 4 or my luck is far far beyond bad. Well, I suppose I’ll have to buy him as premium now, I’m in too deep to just let him get away.

  28. I was pissed I missed the first day of the event then missed that it got extended. With 3 missing prizes and 20 minutes left I said to hell with it and rushed 6 actions. The final prize with minutes to go was Rupert! Still mad it cost me 72 clams with all the rushes (I had to do a few others on other days too). I like the last TSTO event that made sure you won as long as you played regularly. I wish Tiny Co would do an event like that. I really hate events that require 3am alarms just to do a few tasks.

  37. I posted this on another forum, so sorry for anyone having to read it twice.

    I don’t understand the point of giving an 8 hour extension.

    With all 4 characters available, the most toys you could collect is 8. If you managed to have those 4 characters complete a task BEFORE the toy changed and left them finished but waiting, the most you could collect was 12. That AT MOST still gives you only a single toy box to open. (Unless you had one of the clam-based items…Stewie’s Sandbox or Topiary.)

    Are we supposed to jump for joy over just one extra toy box? Why didn’t they change the toy at 9 PM (PST) last night if they decided to extend the event? That would have given us an extra 12 hours, and a chance at 12 more toys.

    And why did they throw Rupert in while we were all struggling to get Stewie unlocked? This whole Rupert event easily could have (and should have) been postponed until after the Comic-Con event, so we could have concentrated on getting Stewie unlocked in advance.

    I enjoy the game, but TinyCo did not think this through. IMHO… ๐Ÿ™‚

Before hitting the Go button to add item to your inventory, hard reset your device and you should have your unopened prize box waiting.
