Gift Boxes Glitches

UPDATE BUNNY: In the process of troubleshooting these issues, they want to look more into specific games impacted. For those of you with EITHER issue, can you please email me with your Player ID or a Screenshot of it (Main Menu, Account, Long # lower right corner), the issue that YOU ran into, and what it has prevented (like missing Jasper items or can’t progress).  Thanks so much for your help. 😉 

I am needing a couple Player ID’s from those that ONLY were locked out and did not get all of the items, like the building for Jasper. Please send me your info ASAP. 😉

Hey there Ho Ho Ho’s. Jumping on in to offer some updates on one of the things we are seeing in the comments. The MAIN one right now is the Gift Box lockouts.

Holiday Gift BoxStriped Gift BoxSnowflake Gift Box

Many of you were excited and anxious to get all the boxes cleared out so one of two things happened…

Locked Gift Boxes Santa's Workshop

LOCKED OUT OF BOXES INCOMPLETE
You wrapped and opened the boxes, but for some reason the Gift Box closed out and locked up before you could get all the prizes inside.

This was reported to TinyCo, they are working on a patch, it will be out with the upcoming update.

In the meantime…double check your Inventory all over just to make sure one of the prizes didn’t sneak in there. They are not in any order so it is easy at times to swipe right past them. 

 

Open a Gift Box The Great Quahog Blizzard Part 4

LOCKED OUT OF PROGRESSING IN GAME
Many players eager to just get the job done, did it so fast that the questline requirements were never triggered before you got done. In other words, players didn’t wait to get the walkthrough to clear one box before clearing all boxes. Now those same players are stuck and unable to clear the task to proceed on the questline.

This issue was also reported, they are working on a patch. Will update once we get word on if it will be with the upcoming update too.

In the meantime, we suggest other players to at least save one box of each to use for the questline progression so you do not run into it too.

 

Hope this helps a lot of you out. Feel free to still write in to them just so you have a ticket open that you ran into the issue too.

  2. Tiny co has not answered me at all. I have been locked out of the first gift box and I’m missing Chris’s drawing table. I downloaded the update and it did not fix it.

    I acquired enough supplies to get the last building to get Jasper, but was given something else rather than the last building twice. I was about to get the last piece needed to build the last building when Jasper left. Not happy about this. I may stop playing.

  5. My striped and holiday gift boxes have disappeared. Like where household to to wrap them. I think that’s where I’m supposed to get items for my wish list (I have only two and I can’t figure out how to get more). I checked my inventory and nothing there. I have all these stockings and no way to spend them. What gives?

  10. I don’t seem to receive the buildings that Jasper needs. Is it possible to get those buildings with the Striped Gift Box?
    Also: the Holiday Gift Box disappeared?

    And is it only possible to add friends by Facebook?
    Thank you!

    • Once you earn all the items in a box, it goes away. If you think you did not get all the items in that box, double check your inventory and if still nothing there …contact them from your game.

      Only FB friends for now.

  11. I have a question about secret santa gifts. I read somewhere on here that ollie will send you a gift everytime the tree is upgraded. I did not receive one during the last ugrade. Is this because I am connected to facebook and am eligible to receive presents from friends? Has anyone else experienced this?

  13. I wish there was a way to see who sent you a gift other than that box that pops up for a few seconds when you first load the game up. Games with longer loading screens always cause me to start doin something else in real life so if i dont happen to be looking i miss the message. Having said that however….

    I opened my last snowflake gift box and got the snowy park. I had mr weed in the park doin his 24 hour task for cookies/HC. Once i opened the box for the park my Mr Weed seems to have vanished. He isnt listed in the park’s menu when i click it and all the other buidings i have clicked i dont see him in case I put him on another task by mistake. Ive flipped the park from regular to snow and nothing. I waited til the timer came up to collect the cookies and i removed the park and then placed it again and still no Mr Weed. I set him at the same time as Brian and he has 9 hours left so I guess we will see when that timer is up if he re appears. Other than that im dumbfounded as to what happened. anyone else had this happen?

    • Also I figured if he was doin the task but invisible it would not let me put the park in storage as any occupied building refuses to let you do that when its being used like that. but it let me store it so there is that theory.

      • Ok once Brian’s task was ready to pop i did a tap fest all over town. Somewhere in all of it Mr Weed was freed, so i have no idea what i had assigned him on cause I had clicked every building and didn’t see him in any of them. So its all good now for me.

  14. They could have saved all the headaches with this problem by making a constant drop from the boxes for the quest. That is to say make the quest required box, drop cookies and the needed stockings to do it again. That way if you get it before the box locks, you aren’t out anything but the time to wrap it. And if you get it after, you clear the quest and get back the stuff you invested.

  22. It looks like they just fixed the locked progression through the Blizzard quest line in the last 20 minutes. I clicked on that building to check my progress toward…ahem…finding Jesus…and there was a new Snowflake Box. Only thing in it was another 750 cookies. (I burned 9 clams to rush the job.) But now the a blizzard quest line has moved on to “Build Quagmire’s Cabin” and then a task for Quagmire of “Bare it All.”

    • If you never triggered the pop up to clear a box, but have none left to clear…they are working on a patch. So you will have no choice but to wait til it is corrected. Lol.

  25. Is there a glitch that causes my Christmas cookies to disappear? On my main screen it shows only 840 but when I go into the work shop its shows 5140 cookies next to the Holiday cheer level.

    Like

    • 840 is your current amount (total minus what you’ve spent). This is the amount you have left to spend. 5140 is your running total. This number never reduces when you spend them, and is more of a way to track how many you’ve collected over the whole event.

    • Give it time…they take turns popping up. So if another was in line first, it will drop first. You only get a set amount each day. If 24hrs have passed and you still do not see one. Alert them

    I was just locked out of the striped box, with one prize left – the cookies. I had just gotten the dance studio, and then created Jasper. I did not rush through it, I have been claiming prizes for days.
    As soon as I created Jasper, the Holiday Cheer award leveled me up to the next Cheer level (5). Going back in, I notices the striped box was locked. I am not sure if creating Jasper, or leveling up, or something else was the cause of me me getting locked out unable to earn my last prize available to everyone else.

    • They lock up when all the main prizes are one and only material left. That is normal. There is a bug though that is locking players out BEFORE they get all the main items, especially the Greek needed for Jasper.

      • So you are saying that I loose the chance to get cookies that I can earn, based on a random event, what gifts the game randomly selects to give out first?? I can understand that it may take longer, but if I miss Jesus by 300 cookies I will not be happy! That doesnt seem very fair.

        • OK I am an idiot. It would cost me 300 cookies to win 300 cookies. There would be no profit in winning. I don’t know why I didnt see that. The box should be locked…it is correct….I dont know why I didnt see that. Sorry to all for wasting your time.
