New Event Teaser

It looks like TinyCo is about to treat us to an alien invasion as  the MIB and their new-found ally, Flash Gordon, are heading to Quahog to save us from TinyCo the Merciless, oops I mean Ming the Merciless of course.

Yes it would appear we’re going to get an event that’s a hybrid of MIB and Flash Gordon, and I for one can’t wait. You got to get this one right TinyCo or else you’re going to need your very own MIB to wipe my memory to save you from my wrath. Anyway while I’ve still got my memory here’s all the information from TinyCo.

When Quahog becomes ground zero for an alien invasion, Peter and the gang join the Men in Black to take back the town! Update now to defend Quahog from iconic aliens like Edgar the Bug, Ming the Merciless and others from the Men in Black and Flash Gordon universes!

  • Collect over 12 NEW characters and outfits, including Flash Gordon!

  • Help Agent Zed, Chief of the MIB, train Peter into Agent Pete!


Now there’s no word from TinyCo of an exact time when the event will go live, but you will find an update for game Version 1.51.2 in your App stores, make sure you update to that in order when the event does go live you will see it in your games. I’ve updated on IOS with no issues, but I can’t speak for other platforms.

So what do you all think of the upcoming event? Let us know in the comments.

    Long time player and I’ve been meaning to tell you this for a a while What I would really like to see in future events are more uses for coins. I have 2 million just sitting there pointless. Also uses for previous event characters. Getting them in one event gives you a boost for a future one, and they won’t just be sitting there. Every event uses the same handful of people while the rest stay put. if you didn’t get the characters but part of the things needed, then they should be recycled as well. How many things have we all collected and not used and are now in the cloud? Those to could be used.

    • Agreed. I have 10+ million :/

      The new event has two new blocks to clear however, at 300,000 each. What this game really needs is some new prizes at Tan Lines.

  2. Holy cow that event was short. I just logged in thinking I’d be able to get a few things and the event is over. I got one pair of jeans for Sam. I think that event was way too hard for a freemium player to get anything accomplished. Is it a ploy in order to get us to use clams to advance in events, or is freemium play just completely impossible to do nowadays? Did any other freemium players get anywhere? Or was it just me???

    • I was able to earn both Redneck Peter and Sam essentially freemium. (I did speed up a task here and there, but spent very little clams.) The key – and I’m glad I finally read and understood the RT Raccoon 101 post – was, with a little time and effort, trash bags were free as long as raccoons roamed the streets. One could generate a free trash can for each raccoon and earn the corresponding white trash. Once I earned Peter, the rest just rolled along as Gary Hilton said it would.

      Like you, I was extremely frustrated early on and am glad I vented here as RT and fellow addicts steered me in the right direction. This site is invaluable for those that play the game.

    • I surprisely get Sam, and also the animal with antlers’ decoration. And I am absolutelly freemium, and I will be forever (because if someday I used to spend real money in this game, after a awful and exhasperating contact with TinyCo, and expecially after all this #!*/!!# events, where you spend your time for nothing, because you always need clams for get the characters).
      So, sorry ‘Djh’ if you didn’t get all this things of this short event (I get everything except the Little pool with the couch), but I think this was the first (mini) event made for freemium.

      P.D.: Sorry for my English. I am from Segovia.

  5. Would it be too much to ask TinyCo for some sort of translation of “3PM Pacific” for players located outside of America ? I missed the end of the Southern Fried Griffins, and only managed to get ONE bunch of flowers over the entire seven days. Very, very frustrating.

      • Personally speaking I’d like the time in GMT (UTC) as I can convert easily. If it said 3pm PST (GMT-8) I would know to add 16 hours as I’m GMT+8

        • With it being USA based company, I do not think they will alter it. Same as if it was the BBC putting out a time frame, I do not see them catering to just the US for time zones.

          It would be cool if all games had a quick tap link to “time convert” to the region you’re playing from for sure. In the meantime, we will attempt to help all we can. RT and Lotty are on your side of the pond… so just ask if you need some time help and they may be able to assist better. 🙂

        • That’s what I meant. 🙂 Adding a “GMT minus something” would be helpful for non-american audiences.
          Speaking of translations, until recently, and because of my locale, the game automatically loaded in French, with no possibility of changing that in the settings. And that translation was truly awful, with most dialogue jokes falling flat, and some parts seemingly done through Google Translate.
          But since a few days, it’s now loading in English, and it’s much better ! So, kudos to TinyCo about that.

  6. with all the polls that are done showing the majority of players never finish the quests, why doesn’t Tinyco extend the quests for at least a week. I am on the app everyday, at least 6 times a day, and i think the last quest i finished was the StarTrek. I still only have 16 of the 30 overalls needed for Sam, as the flower drops are not as “common” as Tinyco thinks.
    Hopefully they still read the comments on your site. thanks

        On the flip side, they don’t have to read comments really as I am emailing them about a million times a day with any of my “opinions” on the game play and the current struggles I am seeing players go through. We also send them stats from all the polls we put up so they can also see visually what our readers/players are dealing with during Events.

  7. Will uninstalling and reinstalling the game lose my progress? The game updated automatically while my tablet was charging and when I opened the app, it asked if I wanted to switch to the update. I said no because I still had one last Bumblescum item to purchase. After I purchased it, I closed the game and reopened, but it’s not giving me the option to update now. I’ve force closed, I’ve restarted my tablet. Nothing.

    I’m guessing reinstalling is my only option as of right now, but I’m worried about the consequences.

      • Well, that’s what I’m saying. My game is updated, but when I logged on and it asked if I wanted to switch, I said no so I could buy that one last item and now it hasn’t asked me since then.

    I am currently stuck in an endless loop. If I try to load the game it tells me I need to upgrade. If I hit the upgrade button, it takes me to Google play and my only choices are uninstall or open (no upgrade choice) If I choose open then it tells me I need to upgrade what’s going on? Any way yiu look at it, i cant play.

  16. interesting concept… if done right then this could be a spectacular event!
    hopefully it’s not just a grind for items in the first week and then freemium players are lagging behind by wk 2 because drops are poor or you need clams to buy outright etc.

    tbh I don’t know how you’d ever come up with a MiB and Flash Gordon crossover, but i suppose if Alien vs Predator… vs Judge Dredd… can happen then anything is possible

  17. RT, like you, I have high hopes for this event! Love everything about MIB and aliens! Almost cannot believe that there will be 12 new characters and outfits coming our way! But. I am trying to temper my expectations, given past history of Tinyco events for FG. Remember Ted’s Excellent Adventure?

    I do hope they have Alien as a character. Or re-offer Roger from American Dad (after all, Roger is the reason why I wanted to start playing FG and I missed it as I started playing the game late).

    Separately, there is a Summer Sale going on today, and I think its going to end on the same day of August 2. I was hoping you have a post out on which is a good character to buy, but there’s not enough time to do one post. I’d figure you would recommend Evil Stewie, which would be my favourite too among others.

    • I’m sorry couldn’t do a post on the sale as I don’t see everything that’s available as I have lot characters/costumes. Evil Stewie is a character so it’s a good price, lol. Best thing do is search on the site and look at the profiles to decide if you want. If I had access to full list of sale yesterday I’d have done a post with all the links etc.

      • Its okay! I did actually search the Addicts site and looked up profiles for Evil Stewie and Retep. Although I liked Retep’s tasks better, he looks just like another Peter. So I decided on Evil Stewie. More importantly, I liked the episode. HAHA!

      The costumes are in his shop. Also they say ‘buy’ in my shopping cart instead of the price.
