Quest for Stuff Quick Walkthroughs: District 9 Part 2…Tom Tucker, What the Deuce and Unlocking Vinny

Hello there Clammers!

We last left off our walkthrough Stewie and Brian were building a blimp but someone stole all the Plutonium!  So they started their quest to find out who took it all by opening District 9 and finding Tom Tucker!  So now we’ll pick our walkthrough back up after Stewie and Brian ask Tom if he knows where the Plutonium is..

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 we’ll pick things up with part 2, where we’ll unlock Tom, find Vinny and build a whole bunch of new buildings!

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…

District 9

Just a reminder
To unlock characters
: once you’ve collected all of the “Stuff”, you’ll need to go through their items again and tap the ones with check marks.  Once you’ve gone through each one the lock over the character’s head will turn gold and show unlock.  At this point tap the character again to fully unlock the character.

As you get further into the game it becomes harder to earn the items needed to unlock the characters.  Be sure to check out the Materials page to see the odds of the items and who can help you unlock them.

Remember this won’t start until you’ve repaired Channel 5 News and found Tom….

  1. I really, really want the Boopity Pastaria and I am less than five minutes away from the end of the 3-day offer! I have basically collected all the cleavers and cigars, and I have also built Casa di Vinny and had Jailhouse Meg visit her friends. Most importantly, I have been tasking Mort, Joe, Quagmire, Brian and Stewie to their respective 10-hour tasks non-stop since the start of the offer but all I got are just two keys! At the risk of sounding thick, I am just curious if the pastaria will still be available in exchange for coins or clams after the offer ends?

    I need to make a decision based on New Year’s Jillian involving a clam purchase I was already planning…

    Can I unlock disobedience school AFTER unlocking Vinny? It looks cool in the prison section and I’d hate to miss out on the Tom Tucker box or delay progress just because of a couple new skins…

    Furthermore, is NY’s Jillian timed? Cuz a lot of her items, even extra rare, are day long actions.

    • Disobedience is a Clam buy…it will help with Vinny, but if you get Meatloafaria and the Warehouse going right away…Brian and Stewie will help better with Vinny’s drops… of course this is IF you want the Pastaria. If you don’t…won’t matter. Take your time on Vinny and those items. They are District based, so there to stay (outside Tom Tuckers Box, that WILL go).

      The Event is timed. Jan 15th. So she will go when the event does if not fully completed and unlocked costume for her.

  15. I also just unlocked Vinny this morning (and had to prioritize him over Stan due to the 3 day challenge–just have to get 4 more classified documents. . .). Anyways, I wanted to mention that TinyCo must have changed something, because “Who Let The Dogs Out? Pt 7” is Vinnie smoke a cigar, but is only a 2 hr task for $30 / 20 XP, not 6 hr. Others may find that a helpful update to the walkthrough.

  16. I know I’m behind, but I just unlocked Vinny yesterday, and despite me thinking that I wouldn’t be able to beat the 3 day challenge, I did so with a whole day remaining, the extra rare items dropped really quickly, I only had to send all three guys on their tasks twice to get all four, so either they raised the odds for the extra rares to drop with Vinny, or I got really lucky, now on to Mayor West!

  31. Please forgive me if this has already been covered but I am confused!

I just don’t want to send Stewie and Brian on the 12 hour task for part 6 if I don’t have to since I still need to get those keys for Vinny….hope that made sense!

    Like

    • The set up for JUST the restaurant side quest, is to complete Vinny getting unlocked in 3 days. If you get to part 3 and have Meatloafaria built, Brian is sent on a task there with cleavers dropped. It then keeps that ability and opens Stewies to drop them too. Part 4 with Abandoned warehouse built sends Brian and then he earns cigars too. At that point it is up to you to continue further, but Vinny himself and the main questline are here to stay.

      My suggestion is to build to two buildings now. Then get to Part 4 to get more material drops. Then focus on getting the keys as they seem the longest for most to get.

  32. So I got Vinny, Sexy Stewie, I just started the Cool-Aid Man and still doing the Pink Brian like everyone else. Im all caught up. *rant begins* *excuse my language* But OMFG! TOM ****** TUCKER! Ive been trying to get satellites since he became available and not a single one of my characters have been dropping it. The keys that I needed for Vinny, got all 4 of them done on my first or second try. Hell even the Champagne glasses I needed for Sexy Stewie was done by my first couple of tries. But Peter, Stewie or the news truck haven’t dropped a single one. Im kind of getting frustrated with it. Granted I don’t have anything else to do but Tom, Cool-Aid, and Pink Brian. I just want to move Peter to start helping out getting Pitchers and I can start focusing on Mayor West when he comes out. Sorry about my rant. *rant over*

  33. Well I did get screwed getting the keys to drop before the timer ran out. I missed collecting one last time by 8 minutes. But I got all 3 keys as soon as I collected 8 minutes after the timer was out. I don’t care what anybody says, I believe the game was glitched by the timer to not drop any keys. To get all 3 at once as soon as the timer runs out is too much of a coincidence for me. I ran those guys non stop collecting on the dot for 3 days. I busted my hump. I got nothing until 8 minutes after the timer ran out. How bull crap is that?! I told tinyco too that it was a crock and I want my building. I more than earned it and I guarantee the game was glitched. It’s not right.

        Oh well, academic really. Being a poker player I had to buy Underdog Poker for my little town, and being a cat lover I had to buy the Disobedience School. (Hey, Vinny is 1/16th cat, so who is to say?)

        Oooh, with all the fountains I recently bought I could turn Underdog Poker into a mini Bellagio! 😆

  36. Just finished the Dogpound. I think it will be impossible to get Vinnie in three days without clams. Only one character earns Cleavers, correct? and that task is 6h and you need 12 so that’s 72h or the exact amount of time you need to get the bonus. Reset task one minute late and the chase for the bonus will be over – and that is if the cleaver drops at all! Common is NOT 100% Not cool! If we were given 3 1/2 days it would be tight but possible without clams.

  37. I’ve gotten everything else to unlock Vinny in 3 days but those stinking keys. It’s pissing me off because now I have less than 18 hours to get the last 3 keys and I’ve had Mort, Joe & Quagmire, and Rupert going nonstop since the timer started to get the pasta building. Stewie and Brian have been helping the last 12 hours since I had them busy earning cleavers and cigars. Of course I told tinyco that the drop rate was unfair and I was getting nothing and they gave me the same old cut and paste response from the game manual about drop rates. Why set the timer for the building if everyone isn’t going to have a fair and equal chance to win it?! Some of you got the keys easily and had a harder timewitg the common items. I too at first couldn’t get any cigars from Carter. Like a whole day he didn’t drop one. As soon as Brian started helping they dropped like crazy. This really gets me mad. I want a fair and equal chance like everyone else who got a fair and equal chance. I have no clams to blow on their game. I’m sure as hell not buying any. I feel that sometimes they’re purposefully trying to force you to buy them. Oh well. I know this will be yet another thing that I won’t get because their drop rates are unfair and unequally set. Thanks a lot tinyco for yet another butt ramming.

    • I get your frustration. I also see many successfully unlocking him in the set time.

      It is how you play the game. They do offer a chance for freemium players, but it’s up to the freemium to put in the time and effort it will take to get it that way. I know it gets tedious, but it’s the trade out for being freemium.

      Pay for quick or play n play for free. I speed up my test game for the site info but I’m also playing a main game alongside everyone else freemium. So I can see for myself how it works. It can be done. Just depends on your drops and character usage. Hang in there. 🙂
