Christmas is Here!!!

Hello There Clammers!

The Christmas update is NOT, I repeat NOT live in our games…yet. Right not they are doing some testing on it to make sure the 1.5 version is going OK. So a small amount of you will see the update hit your app markets.

Splash Screen Christmas Quahog 2014

Again, this is JUST prep work/testing. So those that get it will ONLY see the icon, Splash Screen, and snow in town. NO tasks, NO items, NO event. We will post more when it goes live.

Well…that is unless we fall asleep waiting for it to hit. It HAS been a very long day for both of us. Lol

So hang in there. We’ll get the info out when we can.

Of course the net goes down and up as we posted this. The Update IS here. We are working on stats now. Will update soon. MORE INFO COMING!!

Kindle…sorry…you know the drill 😦

Bunny & Alissa

Some more details below the fold…

Ok guys this is just like Halloween…you have to earn Cookiees to buy stuff (like Spirit vials) AND you have Holiday Cheer (like Fright points).  You also have the ability to craft/create gifts at Santa’s Workshop (like the cauldron).  So you guys should know a lot of the drill by now…

This event is very Lois heavy in the beginning.  And a lot of short tasks that you should progress through quickly.  The stopping point will come when you craft your first gift, which will take an hr.  And then you’ll have another task to build the Quahog Mall, which will take 4hrs to build.  If you’re looking to rest tonight…that might be your best stopping point….

Squatters

2014-12-05 07.04.57

There are two types of Squatters with the event…Snowmen and Mall Santa’s (and apparently CIA Agents, as they’re still roaming the streets of my Quahog!)

Snowman Squatter

Snowmen
Just tap them and they’ll go away.  Plus you’ll earn event currency!

Mall Santa’s
For these you will need Sexy Santa Lois and/or Jasper to clear.  Each Mall Santa takes 2hrs to clear and earns you 10 Gingerbread and 2 Holiday Cheer.  Plus the chance for a doll to drop!


Christmas Challenge:

Give Me A Sign…

Triggers by Peter AFTER you Craft Sexy Santa Lois.

Clear 10 Mall Santa’s in 4 Days and you’ll unlock the North Pole sign!

And yes…as of right now there are Clam rewards when you reach a new Level.  Follow along with The Cheer Squad questline to earn clams for reaching cheer levels!


Secret Santa…

For the first time during a TQFS Event there’s a Social Element to it!  (Remember the only way to have friends in this game is via Facebook.  And if you’re looking for friends check out our Add Me Thread here.)

You can leave a Secret Santa Gift for a neighbor…and they’ll get rewards for it and you’ll get a chance for Clams! (and rewards too!)

Below is from the in game FAQs.  This will explain it better than I can at 3:30 am…2014-12-05 07.22.15

How does Social Gifting work?
Bonnie can create Secret Santa Gifts by performing the “Wrap a Gift” action. You’ll be able to see how many Secret Santa Gifts you have by viewing the counter on the Multiverse button.

When you visit an eligible friend’s Quahog, you’ll see a button on the top right corner of the screen with the number of Secret Santa Gifts you own. If you tap on it, you’ll leave your friend a box that they can open to receive wonderful prizes. You can gift each friend one gift box each day.

Whenever you give a friend a Secret Santa Gift, you’ll also receive Christmas Cookies and a chance for clams!

How do I open Secret Santa Gifts?
When you receive a Secret Santa Gift, you’ll see a message telling you to open the box by your Christmas tree. To open it, tap on the box!

You can open one Secret Santa Gift per day. If you receive more than one box per day, you’ll be able to open another after 24 hours have passed.


Santa’s Wish List…

Fulfill various wishes (usually via the Crafting part) to unlock Santa for your Quahog!

2014-12-05 07.12.47

How do I use the Christmas Wishlist?
Tap on Santa’s Sleigh to access the Christmas Wishlist. You can fulfill wishes by collecting the items that characters have asked for. Fulfilling a wish unlocks a new Christmas action for that character.

How do I get Santa?
If you complete every wish on the Christmas Wishlist, you’ll receive Santa!


District 10…

You’ll notice it’s there…but it’s locked!  The land is smokey and you can’t access it just yet.  It’s coming soon…so be patient and enjoy Christmas! 🙂

2014-12-05 08.36.39


 

And that’s it for Phase 1 of Christmas!

    My question is where is santas sleigh so I can start doing the Christmas wish list. Also are the Christmas wishes not supposed to be popping up? I know I’ve done all that’s required by them but I haven’t gotten actually quests from the game. I just used an only forum to figure out what I was supposed to do.

  5. I have myself one of those question type things about “Santa’s Wish List”. I understand that I need to, “Get Brian an Inspiration Corner”, for example, in order to unlock a christmas action for his character. What I do not understand, however, is what type of Gift box does this have a chance of coming out of? When I click on the character, I think it takes me to the Gift Box that has the chance of dropping their item, but I’m not 100% sure and I don’t have the resources to be playing a guessing game here 😉 If someone could reassure me before I click, “Wrap”, that would be fantastic ^_^ Thank you very much!

  7. Awesome? No. Very nice? Yes.

    This post has so much useful information that I keep referencing it. I bought the Gingerbread Shack thinking ‘awesome animation’ would be gingerbreadies poking their heads out of windows or running around the building. However, there are only blinking gumdrop lights. They are very nice.

    Do the trailer and house have anything more than very nice blinking gumdrop animation which would make them great? I doubt I would be awed unless they created persistent images of Mother Mary in my vision.

  19. I like it except that I don’t like that if you use 500 gingerbread for Lois you loose 500 gingerbread. Or you use 150 for wrapping presents and loose 150 gingerbread. Let the wrap presents you keep the amount. I have earned over almost 900 gingerbread and wrapped 3 gifts. I can’t unlock lois because i have to keep making gifts to get Santas wish list complete. If you wrap a gift keep the 150 but if you create lois its okay to remove the 500. Just keep that thought for next update please.

  23. Just weighing in, here. I am chillin’ on my one weekend off this month (retail BITES this time of year) and getting as much accomplished as I can. Tinyco has always been kind to me. No matter the circumstances or situation. Whenever I have sent in a support issue, they deal with it quickly and efficiently. They also respond to general comments (GIGGITY-split LOL). That being said, even with the issues at the beginning (let’s face it; there always are) I am still meeting all requirements and tasks in a reasonable time frame. I started Jasper’s train station (because I was tempted to eat all the cookies) BUT there is ALWAYS a period of grace … You don’t have to hit the completion check mark as soon as it shows up, thereby buying you time to get those stripes gifts unwrapped. Ok … Nuff said … Keep Clam and Yule get thru this!

  24. I am social media phobic but I really want gifts! Ollie gave me one that appeared at the same time my first crafted one was ready (Was this a coincidence?). I opened one and the other disappeared. Will Ollie ever give me another one? I know he’s not real but I’ve still given him two presents!

      3) Why did the gift from Ollie disappear when I went to open the one I had crafted that was sitting next to it? (It may have been the crafted one that disappeared when I opened Ollies.. One of them did anyway).

Everybody says to wait until you’re ready to start him, but I don’t know if I’m ready unless I know what I need. Any help with the list of what is needed to unlock him?

Very nice change to the city that I see sooooo many times per day. My only complaint about any event is that I wish it involved more characters. I love Consuela, but she’s almost useless. I know more stuff will unlock and I look forward to using more characters, but to me I’d like to see more characters involved from the beginning. Thanks for the event end timer! And thanks for all the hard work! Thanks to Bunny and Alissa for holding our hands through this.
