I guess it’s true what they say. It’s all wicked good fun until a falling house lands on top of you, lol.
I’ve always felt that the little flying farmhouse never got the credit it was due, I mean Dorothy took out the Wicked Witch of the West and got a fanfare, that little house took out the Wicked Witch of the East and didn’t get so much as a lick of paint. And now to make things worse TinyCo has put that little hero of a falling house on the wrong side of the event fence, as it’s the little baddie we need to clear in Phase 2 of There’s No Place Like Quahog.
With so much going on in the first day or two of a new phase I know you all feel like you’re in the eye of a storm as a tornado of information is thrown your way, but we’re here to break it down so you can follow the yellow brick road without worrying about a house falling on top of you.
So let’s take a closer look at the new content released in Phase 2 of There’s No Place Like Quahog and see exactly what it takes to get these falling houses out of our towns.
WHAT THE HECK ARE FALLING HOUSES?
They are little farmhouses that have flown through the eye of a storm, and in order to start learning about them in Quahog you will need to be at Pt. 1 of the Main Questline Someplace Over The Rainbow. It’s here you will be instructed to Learn About Falling Houses. Clicking Go will bring up some very basic instructions on how to clear them from your town.
At this point you will also trigger the ability to collect the protein powder needed to train Buff Munchkins in order to clear away falling houses.
Once you reach Pt. 2 of Someplace Over The Rainbow you will find falling houses appearing in your Quahog.
WHERE WILL I FIND FALLING HOUSES?
Falling Houses tend to land around your roads, so if you’re not seeing them they might be hiding on a piece of road behind a building. Look for little plumes of smoke billowing up, this is a sure fire sign there’s a fallen house lurking. I’ve only two small strips of road just now and they have all fallen beside them.
WHAT DO I NEED TO START SEEING FALLING HOUSES?
You don’t need to do anything apart from reach Pt. 2 of the main Questline, Someplace Over The Rainbow. As soon as you get to that part they will automatically appear in Quahog for you to find. I immediately saw 5 in my town, so this looks like the max. Once a Falling House was cleared a replacement landed about 2 hours later in my game. Falling Houses look like this.
WHAT DO I NEED TO CLEARING FALLING HOUSES?
You will need to collect 1 Protein Powder to train a Munchkin into a Buff Munchkin to clear a Falling House. Try saying that when you’ve had a few drinks!!!
Protein Powder (Always): Mort Restock Supplements OR Lois Work Out OR Joe Join a Gym OR Winged Monkey Chris (Premium Character) Terrorize The Town
HOW DO I CREATE BUFF MUNCHKINS
You need 1 protein powder to train 1 Buff Munchkin. Once you have a protein powder you need to go to the Munchkin Academy, it’s in the event area and looks like this.
The exclamation mark above the Munchkin Academy denotes that there are training spaces available.
Training Spaces: There are 4 training spaces available, this is the maximum Buff Munchkins you can train at anyone time. And you will notice TinyCo has now removed the two extra spaces that were unusable in Week 1, so things are clearer.
Capacity: You will see the academy capacity in the top right corner, you will see the capacity of the Munchkin Academy at this time is either:
8 – this is the standard capacity we all start with.
12 – this is the increased capacity that you can get if you purchase the premium building, the Munchkin Mayor House. This costs 200 Clams and boosts your standard capacity in the Munchkin Academy from 8 to 12.
This means you can only have a total of 8, (or 12 if you purchased the Munchkin Mayor House), Buff Munchkins created and/or Buff Munchkins in training at any time. If your capacity is showing full, then you can free up capacity by using some of your Buff Munchkins to clear away some Falling Houses.
The training academy looks like this when Buff Munchkins are in training.
When a Buff Munchkin has completed its training you will see the check mark above your training academy. It takes 2 hours to train each Buff Munchkin.
Clicking on the check mark will complete the training and provide you with a Buff Munchkin, ready for you to unleash on those eyesore Falling Houses.
HOW DO I CLEAR AWAY A FALLING HOUSE?
Once you have a Buff Munchkin simply look around Quahog for a Falling House, tap it and this will bring up the launch screen.
Simply drag your Buff Munchkin over to a Falling House, you will know it’s in the target when you see the Falling House turn purple within a green circular target, once it’s targeted quickly tap the tick to clear the Falling House.
You’ll see the Falling House disappear in the little puff of goodies it drops.
WHAT REWARDS DO I GET?
The rewards you get are as follows. Falling Houses drop the following:
Per Falling House Cleared:
1 Oil (Rare) – needed to purchase items from the Fallen Farmhouse
3 Emeralds (Always) – needed to purchase items from the Fallen Farmhouse, store and to unlock characters.
There you have it, all the facts about Falling Housess. Have you started to clear them yet? If so, are you enjoying this silly addition to our games? Any other tips for fellow Players? Let us know.
