Hello There Clammers!

TinyCo’s been busy the last couple of days posting spoilers and hints about what’s to come for Halloween 2014….

First, they teased it on Twitter…and Bunny wrote a whole post about that and speculation for what’s to come.

Then we got a Pink Brian Sneak Peek….have you unlocked him yet?

Endless Summer Ended, Not Kool!

Update 11:00pm EDT: Looks like Kool-Aid Man is back in the game!  You now have 24hrs to finish collecting him.  This MORE than makes up for the time glitch many were experiencing.  Good Luck!

Update 2:40pm EDT: Per TinyCo: “There was a bug that caused him to end at local time, rather than PDT. We’re looking into bringing him back for 24 hours, so players can finish him.”

They’re working on it…for now if you’ve experienced this glitch and haven’t yet reported it…send in an in-game ticket so they know exactly who is impacted.

Oh and Kool-Aid Man is now Voiced!!!!

Hello There Clammers,

Busting in with a quick glitch report that MANY of you are reporting on…the Kool-Aid Man’s Quest is GONE!  Kool Aid Man Train 90's Style 4

According to many of you the ability to unlock Kool-Aid Man has disappeared from your game.

Not Kool.  Not Kool AT ALL!

So here’s the deal…Yes, Kool-Aid Man was supposed to end today (9/30).  BUT he was supposed to end at 3pm PDT, which is in (just under) 9hrs from now.  However, it seems there’s been a timer glitch in many games causing him to disappear at 3pm local time NOT PDT.  So if this is the case for you…report it to TinyCo.  (info on contacting them here)

Bunny and I have also reported this to TinyCo (we reported this last night…as soon as our New Zealand  friends started reporting the quest ending), so as soon as we hear something back on it we’ll let you know.  In the meantime, it’s important that if you’re experiencing this glitch to report it to TinyCo as well.  They need to see the reports coming from multiple places and not just us.  So make sure you send in the support ticket….

Are YOU experiencing this glitch?  When did the timer shut off for you?  Is it after 3pm local time or did it shut off before?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Character Overview: Tom Tucker

Hello There Clammers!

With the introduction of Family Guy: The Quest For Stuff there’s a whole cast of characters to unlock in your rebuild effort of Quahog!  These overview posts are designed to give you a quick breakdown of the characters, how you unlock them & their tasks so you can play FGG more efficiently!

Of course there will be those players who don’t want to know the details of unlocking the characters so for that reason we’ll post all of the details below the fold.  So if you don’t like to know what’s going on before you play don’t click read more…CAUTION SPOILERS AHEAD

Now that District 9 is FINALLY unlocked it’s time to take a look at the characters of the Downtown District.  Tom Tucker is the first character you’ll unlock in the Downtown District.  It’ll take a bit of hard work collecting all the STUFF you’ll need to unlock him, but there’s no rush to get him.  He’s not required to move forward in the questline and unlock the other characters in the District.  So take your time with him and have some fun 🙂

So now let’s take a look at Tom and his tasks….

Candy Time: Pink Brian At Last!

UPDATE BUNNY: The case of INVISIBLE Brian. We know the image is missing currently of Pink Brian in Al’s. No worries. There were reports the image was “off” when first released, so we assume they pulled it to fix it. He will return. In the meantime, have fun sending “Invisible Pink Brian” on some tasks. Lol. 😉

UPDATE BUNNY: Known glitches hitting the game for Pink Brian.
*Candy collected, game resets, candy goes back to Zero. 
*Candy collected, Info that he is in inventory, tap OK but pop up wont go away 

Issues are being reported to TinyCo. Please ensure you FIRST check your inventory. Even with the issues, many players are still finding him in there. So go to there first to see if you can locate the Pink Brian Costume. If he is not, report it. TinyCo is stating that so far the players all had him in Inventory to collect. As far as pop up, patches have been pushed and issues should be clearing out now. 

Also it seems his first 1hr task is getting stuck. Again, please report these to TinyCo if you are having them.  This should be resolved now after you force close the app. 

Hello There Clammers.

Well…for those that started on time…the wait for Pink Brian is FINALLY over!  Today’s the day red candy falls!

Sixty-Four Thousand Dollar Bars Pumpkin Candy Bucket 1

 

Let’s take a look at what happens once you finally earn that last piece of candy to unlock this Pretty in Pink character… Continue reading

Quest for Stuff Quick Walkthroughs: District 9 Part 3…Mayor West

Hello there Clammers!

We last left off our walkthrough Stewie and Brian had just freed Vinny…in hopes he could lead them to their missing Plutonium!  Of course Vinny just swindled them out of a bunch of stuff…oh and he got  a new house built out of the deal!  Only to tell them Mayor West had the Plutonium.  So we restart our quest with Mayor West…and finding out what HE knows about the Plutonium…

This will be a little different than past District walkthroughs, since it will be released in stages.  So, we’ve covered part 1 here and part 2 here,  now we’ll pick things up with part 3, where we’ll unlock Mayor West…and a whole lotta Taffy!

Unlocking characters and items in the Downtown District will take a lot of patience, as the list of “Stuff” required to unlock is longer and the quantities of each are greater.  Take your time, try not to get frustrated when the items don’t appear.  Try a different task to unlock the item, or try working on a different item.

So let’s pick our walkthrough back up with Brian and Stewie and the hunt for the missing plutonium…
