  1. I have the building that drops cards for woods for like 2 days but it has not dropped any cards, just xp and money. Is this normal or is there something wrong with my drops?

  2. OK maybe already asked somewhere but Mayor West is showing worms as a drop and he’s been racking them up. Any idea what they are for? I don’t see any quest for them. I was thinking a hold over from Pirates but worms make sense in a grave setting. Anyone else seeing this?

      I’m pretty certain it’s just carry over from the Pirate event, but it’s low down on the priority to fix list 🙂

  3. I’ve got sherriff peter this morning and am working on the building that drops candy. My problem is I had sp investigate but didnt get credit for it. I also have set characters to work and exited the game, came back a few hours later and nobody is doing anything. This seems to be happening every other time.

  4. Only complaint so far is the poltergeists
    I’ve used 3 or 4 chains and have had ZERO poltergeists….kinda frustrating when I need to clear one to move on in the questline

      Have you already unlocked Sheriff Peter? As he or Condom Chris are required to clear the poltergeists, if you don’t have one of them I wouldn’t worry too much to rush it yet 🙂

  5. I’ve noticed that rates during timed events are better than the same rate during a district.

    I remember going days between extra rare drops during districts, but I’ve got over half the extra rare pants already.

      Yeah I guess it depends on the time frame. As the districts are there forever the rare stuff can be rarer lol.

      • Same for me. 3 days of trying to get poltergeists, and I have only gotten them 2/8+ tries. I have all 3 characters working on them, and i usually get 1 then 2 then 1 then 2 chains. Unlocking James is all I have left, other than fial building, but I’m done with collecting Peter pants already. Just need candy, poltergeist drops and a few more cards.

        Still debating last building. No need for it and save 43 keys for next episode.

  6. Its mid afternoon on Tuesday and I feel that it is going pretty well. I am alternating tasks a little and I couldn’t resist chris s condom outfit and clearing a poltergeist gives a huge boost to the ectoplasm count. Drops are going nicely for all items and I am now collecting keys for the penultimate item. Prior to getting Chris I concentrated on salt drops in order to purchase the buildings that drop items for peters outfit. I think sheriff peter will be unlocked for me by late tomorrow or early Thursday. So far this is looking like a good event.

  8. Shame that everyone except Peter is tied up collecting for Sherriff Peter instead of trying to drop rock salt. Can’t even think about collecting for James Woods until Sherriff Peter is done, so I don’t fancy my chances to unlock both before the case ends.

    • I’m actually doing things opposite way, I’m using all characters to get rock salt to clear ghosts in order get ectoplasm to trade for keys to get the buildings that drop items for Sheriff Peter, then once get them placed I will flip characters on to drops for iron chains for Poltergeist & James Woods items. Way I see it I need have bought the early buildings to be able get the building needed to drop candy for unlocking James Woods. I’m onto the 4th item in the store, building that drops handcuffs, once I’ve got enough for that I will change tasks away from rock salt. I should point out I’ve spend 0 clams doing it this way. Different strategy, not necessarily better but just my way thinking.

    • You’ve gotta focus on salts!! Trust that the buildings from the concierge will drop what you need for the sheriff!! Can’t do it without those buildings, they drop items like crazy!! Except for Quagmire, have him focus on flashlights, those are the only thing left I need for Sheriff Peter.

  9. My friend and I ate both not getting any ghosts anymore since we opened up the poltergeist before we got sheriff peter.. I have poltergeist flying around which I can’t clear and not longer get ghost when I try to. I figure it’s because I need sheriff peter but can’t get him because I need ghosts. Help! Thanks.

    • How many poltergeists have you released? I’ve got 1 hovering but still getting ghosts. Are your investigations just failures or are you seeing you were successful but then no ghosts appearing?

      • I am not the original commenter above, but I have also run into this issue. I followed the quest line and released a poltergeist even though I don’t have sheriff peter to clear him nor did I pay clams for condom Chris to clear him and now every room I search for ghosts where I used to get 3 ghost per room when successful I get only 1 ghost now or unsuccessful tries each time. Prior to releasing the poltergeist I always got 3 ghosts per room when I was successful in finding ghosts. Was I just getting lucky or something? With the exchange rate requiring 22 ectoplasm per 6 skeleton keys and me needing 11 skeleton keys but every other room only giving me 1 ghost for 2 ectoplasm I’m going to need to have 11 successful ghost finds to get 6 skeleton keys, meaning no way I’m progressing in the allotted me needed anymore. My game was running smoothly at a decent pace until I let loose that poltergeist and now I’m stuck unable to get enough ghosts to get keys to get buildings for Peter’s costume to clear the poltergeist! Feeling a bit trapped now!

        • My first few attempts when event started I got 6 ghosts released a few times, now I’m getting between 1-3, and frequently 0, my last 3 releases not long ago I got 0, 0, 3. The amounts released are variable as is the amount of ectoplasm for trades. What I have noticed is I seem be getting better drops of the rock salt. Try concentrate on getting salt & what you need unlock Sheriff Peter as once you’ve got him clearing poltergeists yields much higher drops of ectoplasm, in Bunny’s test game it was 50 ectoplasm.

          • Thanks for the information Russian Tigger, I guess I’m just running into a streak of bad luck then! My ectoplasm trades have been stuck on 22 ectoplasm for 6 keys for the last 3 trades now and I’m just getting one or zero ghosts per room so the going is very very slow. I’m just inching my way towards the handcuff building using every available character to get rock salt at the moment since I feel like if I can at least get the buildings for sheriff Peter then I can maybe start using some of the characters towards other Peter items like the rare and extra rare ones! But for now it seems to be an impossible task with one ghost at a time for two ectoplasm each 3 hour task for rock salt… I’m using everyone, getting 2 rock salt on average per round of characters sent out, and of those two tries getting 1 ghost, and 2 ectoplasm, needing 22 to trade per 6 keys. I’ve got 6 keys and I’m currently at 12/22 needed for the next trade, hopefully drops or ghost finds will improve soon! Would like to work up to that flashlight building so I can at least get sheriff peter and work on those poltergeists and work towards James Woods!

            • I’m working towards the flashlight building, so you’re not far behind me. So I would keep doing what you are as sounds like your strategising the same way as myself. I will cross my fingers you’re next ghost hunt is a successful one. Good luck.

              • I currently have 4 poltergeist roaming around waiting for Sheriff Peter and I still have success getting ghosts. 5 sometimes, 2 others, and it really burns when you get 0 twice in a row. But I don’t think the poltergeist change the drop rates. One thing I’ve noticed::the portrait room has the worst ghost drop rate in my game!! Hope your drops get better!!

                • I’m doing okay, I will have Sheriff Peter today, moving along nicely. I just wanted to let the players who were worrying know we get 0 ghosts at times too, and that my poltergeist doesn’t seem to be causing any trouble, just floating around looking all supernaturally superb. Lol. But thanks for that comment, it’s great when fellow players take time to share their stats.

  10. When I try to unlock James Woods, for the last two days, my game completely freezes. Any suggestions.

    • What part freezes? In other words, how are you trying to unlock him? Did you just start Into the Woods? Trying to tap on his lock icon? Or have you completed collection of all his materials and now trying to pull him into the game?

      • I’m just starting him. Sometimes it gets as far as saying ,you found James Woods, and then freezes, today freezes when I first tap, doesn’t even get to the hammer part.

        • Hmmmm. I would suggest to make sure your Play Area is as clear of all animation as much possible. In other words, send all Characters on short lil tasks back at Quahog, or to the tasks in the Elevator. Clear all Ghosts if any roaming. Try to make sure you are on a good strong signal, usually WiFi is the best. And try to see if you can allow for anymore memory room on your device… then try again.

          Outside that, the next step (only if your game is saved FIRST), uninstall/reinstall and/or Contact TinyCo

  11. I’m not liking there’s more uncommon and rare items than ever before. We need to unlock a sheriff peter in order to clear the poltergeist but half the stuff is rare or extra rare. It’s gonna be a loooong month

    • Sheriff Peter has one Rare, but he will be needed for James and Poltergeists… so focus on him first to see where you get. Once I unlocked the Buildings, I tested the drops. They come in twos so it didn’t take too many tries to get all I needed to drop. You still have 11 days. That is quite a long time. Just take it one day at a time and see where you are in 7 days and go from there. 🙂

      I have been trying to note actually on the drops how many times it took me in testing to get that amount of items. It was only using one source too.

  12. any timed events to unlock characters should not be rare or extra rare drops, especially if you need the same character for multiple items. not cool TinyCo

    • I agree, and on top of that, half the time I don’t get any ghosts. So on top of only sometimes getting the salt, even when I do get salt, I may not get ghosts. At this rate, it will take forever to get Peter. Why do they have us releasing poltergeists when we have no one to combat then with? It makes no sense at all…

      • I released the poltergeist needed for the main Questline, no more since, working totally on rock salt. But the ability to release poltergeists has to be there for the premium players who have purchased Condom Chris, as he has a task to clear them.
