Hey there Clam Seekers!
Many times as we are Playing along in the game, we wonder “Can I get FREE Clams?” Well, YES! You can! There are so many places around the game itself to earn Clams For Free, it is insane. Many places you may have not even noticed.
Overtime I was slowly compiling a list of places the Clams appeared, but recently was approached by one of our Readers here, Russian Tigger, with their take on all the Free Clams they have earned just by playing along in Family Guy: The Quest For Stuff. As I love to share thoughts with you outside of just mine and wanted to give you a run down of Free Clams, I thought it would be the perfect time to share Russian Tigger’s breakdown. Take a peek below and feel free to share your Free Clams results you have got to date too in the comments.
FYI, if you are here looking for Cheats or Hacks to the game… WRONG SITE! Please refer to our Addicts Guidelines for more info. 🙂
FROM THE BEGINNING
In the Tutorial when you first open the game, you are awarded 5 Free Clams just for completing some Tasks with Peter and Chris (one Clam is used to get Chris Socks).
More and more continue to drop during the game as you go through the District Questlines, Events, Collect Characters, and on n on n on n on n on. So many that it was an ever growing list I had. Here are a few District Questline examples…
District 3 (this was per play in 2014, let us know if you saw different)
District 5 (this was per play in 2014, let us know if you saw different)
To give a perspective from someone other than Me and My own game… let’s take a look at Russian Tigger’s Free Clam progress as they’ve played through the game since they began May/June 2014
RUSSIAN TIGGER’S FREE CLAMS!
There’s Clams in that there Game
Following on from my leaderboard musings I’m back for more, but this time I want to tackle an issue close to all our hearts, clams, more precisely free clams, the legit type you get from playing the game. I often read in the comments that players feel TinyCo is a little mean when it comes to clams and I know there can sometimes be an issue where players games show clam spends but no clam purchases. This occasionally confuses TinyCo’s cheat sweeps as it isn’t coded to know where these clams came from and if like me you’ve built up quite a few this can see your account flagged as suspicious causing you to be banned from leaderboards etc. But I know for a fact they are working on trying fix this for future events so let’s say no more about that just now.
Anyway I thought since I have nothing better to do with my time I’d put together a post showing how I got my free clams and ask how many my fellow addicts have built up since they started playing. I certainly got a pleasant surprise at my total.
I obviously welcome others to post about their clam experiences, but again please this is not some TinyCo hatefest, this is just to show how us players can build up plenty of clams just from playing clean and of course it will hopefully encourage TinyCo to drop some more clams into the game as a reward for us players.
So join me as I go a clamming and take a little trip down memory lane. And yes by the end of it I’m sure we will all have gone a little clam crazy but at least I will have shown there were lots of clams to be honestly gathered.
I’m going to start my journey through the clam fields with general game play. I started playing in May/June 2014, unfortunately missing the cool beta stuff etc. But alas I’ve got over it and I’ve played through every district, event and glitch since.
OLLIELAND FREE CLAMS
So my first clam total is from my daily visits to Ollieland, I’ve visited most days but giving a little margin for missed days I have probably earned around 600 FREE Clams from this alone.
