Pawtucket Ale Challenge! & MORE!!!

Hey there Gobblers!

In the midst of our just beginning Turkey Fest, TinyCo has dropped a Challenge into our laps. This will be a 24hr Challenge, so decide if it will be worth it to you to give it a go.

Let’s take a look at the Challenges!

First up, these Challenges are just that. A Challenge. That being said, keep in mind that there may be a possibility Clams must be used to complete the Challenge depending on where YOU are in the game. Plan ahead accordingly and you can get through many of them just fine.

 

The following is how the Challenge played out in MY game. Let me know if you saw different.


PAWTUCKET ALE CHALLENGE- 11/25

Peter JoeHave Peter and Joe Respect Beer O’Clock: This task will take you 12hrs and requires BOTH Joe and Peter free. Get started on it as soon as you can.

QuagmireHave Quagmire Mix Drinks x8: This task will take you 1hr each, so allow yourself 8hrs total to complete this one. Get started on it as soon as you can.

building_drunkenclam_Collect From the Drunken Clam x12: This task will take you 1hr each. I repeat, this task will take you ONE HOUR EACH. If you are seeing any different then you have a Seasonal Skin on the Building, so take it off of the Building and go to the ORIGINAL DRUNKEN CLAM and the 1hr pay time. You will need 12hrs total for this so get started as soon as you can.

Outdoor BeirgartenCollect from the Outdoor Biergarten x2: This task will take you 6hrs each. This means you need 12hrs total … or… if you bought multiple of these from the Previous Event… then it will go fast. Give yourself the appropriate amount of time to complete this.

REWARD: $100 & 25xp, 1 Pawtucket Ale Balloon

Balloon Pawtucket Ale

As you can see, ALL of this will be easily done within 24hrs if you watch your game just right. So for me, this one is really no Challenge. More just restarting Quagmire on his task and collecting from the Buildings.

 

Back with more in a bit…

 


IS THIS THE ONLY CHALLENGE? 

No. There will actually be MANY Challenges hitting the game during this Event. Each one TIMED 24HRS. I wanted to give you a heads up on these, here yah go!! Essentially, the trigger is completing the ones before. I believe Peter will kick them ALL off, but will try to note if I find different. These may hit one each day… waiting for Shrimp one to hit my game.

I will update more on these as I can. But this should get you a good idea at least to get started.

Update 12/1: All Challenges done. All just Ballons. Nothing more I see.

 


There you have it. A glimpse on things to come. Again, just watch your Buildings for ANY Skins and remove them so you collect at the appropriate times.

How are you doing on the Challenge so far? Liking the idea of all the Thanksgiving Balloons? Thoughts on those to come? Favorite so far? Let us know.

  2. I’m stuck on Rupert’s Balloon because I’ve been trying to get Kale-ifornia Living for 3 days now (well, first I was stuck on getting Death’s balloon too … ). The drop rate on Juice, which should be uncommon, even when I did my “bestest” to collect every 2 hours is just off … I’ve been extremely unlucky, and I took my sweet time in triggering the event, but as it were, if the whole Thanks Giving Mini Event is ending soon … I stand to lose this task either way so I triggered it now for the slim chance of a maybe … 😦

  3. Same here. Nothing more so far for completing all the challenges. I’m holding out for 9am est for something to pop up. That’s the normal time my challenges were released. I’m thinking something will be released then as a reward for completing all the challenges. Fingers crossed!

  5. What is the Stewie Challenge? The other 24 hour timed challenges were floats, but there was already a Fat Stewie float on page one of the market, and a fat Stewie character was the grand prize for completing the market, so what kind of “Stewie” is the prize for the 24 hour challenge?

    Like

  6. I’m hoping that the Stewie prize isn’t anything that I want, because I’m unable to complete the Rupert Challenge. Because Rupert’s Challenge requires Kale-ifornia and I haven’t unlocked it yet. My game is being very stingy with the Cold-Pressed Juices, so I’m still working on Kale-ifornia.

  8. When I see this, I automatically think to ignore it because (1) I think it is just an attempt to pull collecting characters from the event to force me to use clams to do either the challenge or the event and (2) it is just for decos that are going immediately to storage. And that stinks. I should trust the makers of the game more and not assume they are trying to force me to purchase clams just to complete events (I don’t though). And also I LOVE having things to do so I wish it was using characters that aren’t so vital to collecting for the event. They are using the Outdoor Biergarten for the very first challenge so they are assuming players have completed SeptemberFest (so Angela and Opie could be used). And they are using Brian who is from District 6 so Dr. Hartman, Seamus, Mort, Lois and Mr. Herbert (all characters from District 6 or prior) could all have been options. When I look at that, it looks more like trying to distract us from the event. I am sure with careful planning all of it could be done, but the temptation of the Tubbs females is too great. Rallo was a slam dunk (I LOVE Rallo) so now I have to have everyone in the family.

    • Mort collects the elusive kale for Roberta and earlier. Herbert collects butter for Donna. Lois and Seamus collect the even more elusive coconut oil for Roberta. Angela and Opie and the incompetent doctor are useless, though.

      I’m learning to keep characters free in such events until I’m absolutely sure they aren’t needed for the next step. It’s usually safe to send oddball characters off for tasks, but not regulars. I try to keep their tasks short during an event just in case, though!

      I try to ignore side quests and challenges as a result unless the prize is something I really want and won’t just store after the event. I made the mistake of starting the beer challenge accidentally- I thought it was the main quest. So two characters were tied up on a long task in the very beginning when they could have been earning vital stuff (Peter in particular). Have to learn to look more closely before leaping. In this event, I’m even ignoring the Main quest since I need the red coins Peter collects all the way through Donna.

  9. Anyone else find it a bit sad that the balloons don’t like bounce around or anything when tapped (or just sitting there static)? They’re labelled as “Parade Balloons”, but they just sit there static tethered to the ground. It’d be nice if they swayed a little…

    Or, at the other end of the scale, it’d be awesome if they were attached to little cars that drove around on the streets and could be connected together like a train to actually parade around through your town!

  10. Curious if I’m the only one that got hit by this:
    Did the McBurger challenge – completed it – went to put item in my inventory – Game Crashes
    Ok, nothing new, game still hasn’t fully stabilized on android phones…
    Go back into Game – Look for item in inventory – not there….
    Think maybe it didn’t register (Again nothing new) – check task list, and notice task is gone. Timer still would have had about an our left at this point. After starting other tasks, the next challenge came into play.

    Sent a message, the response I got was a since the system didn’t register that the task was successfully completed, they cannot help out. Somehow not surprised, they did give me a few clams, which was nice of them.

    Curious if anyone else has run into this glitch.

  11. Do they not want people to sleep for the Stewie task as each one takes a minimum of 16 hours if you catch it right leaving you just 8 hours to actually get some sleep.
    I know they are optional but that one is pushing it especially as you don’t know the exact time it will show, only a rough estimate.

        • Mine start at 9 am est, everyday. Also you don’t have to activate it right away. As long as the ! is on Peter the tasks will count and the 24 hour timer will not start until you tap on it.

          This post is extremely helpful, use it to your advantage and you can get them all and do the questline as well.

  20. So, the second challenge appeared in my game…right after I sent Bonnie to “Yoga with Wine”. So, because I have no means of “cancelling” her task, the second challenge is an automatic failure for me, unless I pay the Clams to rush Bonnie’s task. (I need 26 hours at a minimum.) Plus, I am in a similar situation with Lois, who is spending 4 hours on the Talking Turkey Pt. 3 questline, which leaves me with only 20 hours to complete her 2 x 8 hour tasks, though this one is possible.

    Is it really too much to ask that their Challenges don’t rely so heavily on the same characters as the questlines and event currency tasks?

  21. Are these all balloon challenges? You say there is an Evil Monkey challenge. I’m just curious cause if they are all balloons i won’t bother and i’ll focus on unlocking Donna, Stewie and co. but if we can actually get Evil Monkey as a playable character then i’ll spend the time on the others.

  22. Btw. The first one and the shrimp one both kicked off for me at 9 am est. I had finished the first one prior to that.

    Also the first one i didn’t activate right away and when i did, it counted the rents that i had collected from the drunken clam while it was still in the ! state.

    Just a trick you can use to help.

    • Yup, I did the exact same thing…. it was showing me 12 hours to collect, and had to collect 12 times in 24 hours, so I just ignored the quest.

      I ignored the 2nd quest because I knew I wouldn’t be able to get that either, and then they changed the times to send Bonnie… so I probable could have gotten that one also.

      Grrrrr… (Sorry, I play the game and don’t always come here and read first to decide how to play…)

  25. Yeah. I think I will pass on these challenges unless they have a skin or character attached to them then I don’t want to take anyone away from the main mini event considering the drops for the coins aren’t always and it takes 6 hours per coin per character. Now if there was normal collection on The Brown women like there was for the dogs from last event then I would give them a try but since there isn’t I am going to focus only on the main event items.

Although I really don’t think the first one would have applied to everyone because of the Biergarten not being available for everyone that didn’t do that event and it wouldn’t have been fair for those to be able to do the other challenges. I honestly think that first one was a leftover from Septemberfest that they didn’t have time to implement.

    It seems to take about 12 hours for 4 new fit/fat protesters to show up. Which would fit with these challenges. I had 4 show up after midnight, then nothing til noon the next day. I still think that’s a bit too long to wait for spawning though.
