Hi there fellow addicts. Is there anything better than when TinyCo throw us some free clams? For me I don’t think so. But sometimes when we are busy in our games we forget about these clams they throw at us, so I thought whilst we have a short, probably very shor, break between events I’d remind long term players of your options and make our newer players aware of what’s out there.
A while back I wrote a post documenting the free clame I’ve collected since I started playing the game, Clams, Free Clams, and MORE Clams! but I’ve kept on clamming since and wanted make sure others weren’t missing out on any by reminding you of what is out there.
If you’re a daily player, okay multiple daily player, then don’t forget to pick up your clam from visiting Ollieland or other neighbours. You know it’s time when the red exclamation mark appears in the neighbour area.
I get a clam every day, doesn’t sound a lot but taken over the year that’s more than enough clams to purchase a premium character.
Next I watch some TV, Clam TV to be precise. Now this appears and disappears in our games at times, but recently it’s been as regular as clockwork for me. You’re looking out for this symbol in your game.
Click on this and you’ll be able to watch short videos advertising other games and such, each video you watch you get 1 free clam. I’ve been getting this daily lately and getting the maximum 7 clams either all in one sitting or split into two Clam TV appearances each day.
That 7 free clams a day can keep on giving as far as I’m concerned as I’m gathering 250-300 clams a month. Again enough for a premium character.
My next source of clams is through a character, the one and only Jesus.
Jesus has a 24 hour task TURN WATER INTO CLAMS. Now if you have Jesus get him on this 24 hours a day as the reward is a rare chance of 2 clams dropping. When I was using this task I found he dropped once, sometimes twice a week. Any easy way to gather a few extra clams eh?
Of course there’s an even better task if you have the Football Jesus skin.
Football Jesus also has a 24 hour task, Completely forsake Cleveland Sports Teams. And this again has a rare drop, but for 4 clams. I’ve had Jesus on this task constantly since I got the skin and he usually drops once a week. It takes time to build up clams from this, but with the minimal effort of just resetting a task once a day, you could gather up enough clams in a year to treat yourself to another premium character.
A recent addition to the game was the Tan Lines Resort, now the main currency here is Stewie Bucks, but don’t be tempted to ignore the Daily Challenges as these occasionally drop you a clam instead of Stewie Bucks. This happens at least once a week in my game. The only days I don’t do these is if they need an essential event character.
So that’s another way to earn clams just by setting characters on tasks. Easy peasy.
Occasionally TinyCo throws us some free clams on special occasions, Bunny will always alert you on the site when this happens. Usually all you need to do is open your game and the clams are awarded. And of course in the past there’s been clams for completing character sets in FaceSpace, hopefully we will see more of that in future, I miss completing those sets.
The last thing to watch out for is the opportunity to gain clams during Events. The recent, Truth, Justice and the Quahog Way event saw 2 ways to earn free clams. Firstly through the Zero to Hero Questline. Here you got 1 clam awarded for every Pow Level you moved up. This maxed out at Level 20, so the total reward for the Questline was 20 free clams. Sweet.
But more recently in events they have started to put a speculate to accumulate clam offer. This basically consists of purchasing a premium building for clams, but it will drop clams daily instead of game currency. If you have the clams to purchase these buildings I recommend you do, as you always end up better off.
For example in the Truth, Justice and the Quahog Way event the Fortress of Solitude building cost 250 clams but paid out 14 clams every 24 hours for 28 days, ensuring you collected every 24 hours you would collect 392 clams, a profit of 142 clams. So keep an eye out for these buildings in future events.
So that’s how to get free clams, but what I’d like ask my fellow addicts for is your ideas of how TinyCo could throw us some more. Would you like mini-games, a chance game, more characters with a task to drop clams, clams for completing long Questlines? What do you think?
Me I’d love a Stewie mini-game where we change his diaper, than hold our breath as, well all sorts of crap comes out, but sometimes, just sometimes our favourite evil baby might drop a clam or two. So that’s what I want, now lie back on the couch and tell me your ideas.
