You can be manufacturing up to 6 items in the Products Queue at a time. If the queue is full you will have to wait until one finishes before adding more into the Queue.

Basically all you need to do is collect the necessary materials and then select the item you want to manufacture. Once you start manufacturing you’ll see items preparing in the Products section on the right. The clam cost to speed them up is also show there.

3: DISPENSARY

 

Here is where you can exchange your Products for Bud Coins to purchases prizes in the Farmhouse. I’ll update this as I get new exchanges.

This is what is the exchanges I’ve seen in my game so far:

2 Bags Of Grass = 20 Bud Coins
3 Bags Of Grass = 20 Bud Coins
5 Bags Of Grass = 20 Bud Coins
4 Bags Of Grass = 20 Bud Coins
5 Bags Of Grass = 20 Bud Coins
4 Bags Of Grass = 20 Bud Coins
5 Bags Of Grass = 20 Bud Coins
12 Bags Of Grass = 20 Bud Coins
12 Bags Of Grass = 20 Bud Coins

2 Bags Of Grass & 1 Special Brownie = 34 Bud Coins
4 Bags Of Grass & 2 Special Brownie = 34 Bud Coins
3 Bags Of Grass & 1 Special Brownie = 34 Bud Coins
4 Bags Of Grass & 1 Special Brownie = 34 Bud Coins
4 Bags Of Grass & 2 Special Brownie = 34 Bud Coins
5 Bags Of Grass & 3 Special Brownie = 34 Bud Coins
6 Bags Of Grass & 1 Special Brownie = 34 Bud Coins


4: BEST BUDS PLOTS

These are where you’ll grow your Best Buds to use to manufacture Products.

When you start the event you will see 2 plots ready to unlock.

The bottom plot with the silver padlock is free to unlock, the top Plot with the gold plot of premium and will cost you 150 Clams to unlock to use it.

Once you have unlocked a plot you can start to grow Best Buds. The freemium and premium plots generate the same 3 Best Buds every 4hrs.

To grow your Best Buds, simply tap the padlock to unlock the plot. You will see the plot with a water drop above it, simply tap this to water your crop then wait 4 hours for it to grow before collecting your harvest. You’ll know it’s ready when the sickle appears above it.

So basically if you only use th freemium plot you’ll get 3 Best Buds every 4 hours, if you pay to unlock the premium plot you’ll be able to grow another 3 Best Buds every 4 hours.


FARMERS ARMANAC WEEK 1

You’ll find a full and more detailed post on this by clicking HERE!!!

Think of this as a “CHECK LIST” of items that will help you gather resources for the Event. There’s also a Clam reward achievement linked to unlocking Cheech within 7 days.

You can get to the current Farmers Almanac Screen by tapping on the Icon in the lower right corner of the game screen.

Once you complete a Special Order you will see CLAIM appear  above the icon.

You must  be mindful of this and tap on the “CLAIM” button next to an order to gain your reward. As I say be vigilant on collecting rewards in order you trigger the subsequent task.

To go quickly to location of a task you need to complete, tap on the “GO” icon next to it.

Here is the list of what I currently see in my game for this Weeks Farmers Almanac (as you clear one or progress through Main Questline, another will appear)…

To Cheech Their Own

Tools Of The Trade

Half Baked

Room To Grow Up

WEEKLY PRIZE: If you complete 24 of the first weeks Farmers Almanac tasks you will unlock the Weekly Prize. This weeks prize is the Weed Vending Machine.


There you have the overall basics to get you started through the first Week of the New Event. Where are you so far? Anything particular you like the most? Suggestions or tips to fellow players? Let us know.

  1. Rwhy can’t I exchange all my product from the week before? It’s just sitting there and I can’t do anything with it.

  2. Hi all, I read through the posts below and it seemed that there are 2 glitches. Just want to say that I personally did not experience it yet and I’m currently at main quest line part 6, and trying to unlock 5th building for 80 coins, and playing freemium. To summarize, (1) some of you are stuck with 119 coins, and need one more to unlock 2nd building, which seemed possible only if u use clams. (2) exchanges seemed to jump from average of 4 bags and 2 brownies to 10+ bags and brownies, which I agree is quite ridiculous. And I hope I don’t see that since I am more than halfway done for the first week but do expect it gets tougher by historical standards.

    What I can suggest for all to try is first to ensure you updated your app with latest update. Then play and progress through your main quest line. If these does not solve it, send a report to Tinyco.

    • Thanks for the tips. I am in this position, only further along than those who are stuck because they don’t have brownies. So i guess that means it will get worse for them. I have the latest version and I have messaged TinyCo twice. They wrote back once to say they are really busy, and the second time to say they have made some adjustments and that they hope the problem is solved. It isn’t. I need 20 bags plus 18 brownies to buy 34 coins. I’ve been collecting for three days straight and will have the items in a few hours. I can either make the purchase and hope the requirement for the next batch of coins goes back to normal, or hold off in case there is a fix. With my luck, I will make the swop and then they will fix it, wasting all my items. I play freemium, but last event, I made purchases, and the customer service is the same either way, so it’s not worth the risk of spending $ in case the game doesn’t work right and no one is able to help.

  4. I’m completely stuck. I have 119 coins and can’t build the second building which means u can’t compete the Peter character. All of my tasks to get coins require chocolate which I can’t get without Peter. I was smoking along and now have no chance at the bonus for Cheech and I have most of the items needed except for those that require buildings.

    • You could build it and use Clams cover the 1 coin your short. Strange you’ve not enough tasks to get the coins needed. I’d message TinyCo and obviously say your only option is to use Clams to speed up. But just for info what Almanac tasks are you at just now?

    • Trade in some of the bags of weed for bud coins. Best buds convert to bags and the bags can be traded in for bud coins. Don’t need to get them all from tasks. 😁

    • Very strange indeed. I progressed through just fine. But if somehow you are really stuck, just use clam to speed it up since you only need one coin. Maybe try and scroll up and down your achievements list too, as sometimes there are new ones not shown in the screen but just scroll up and down. One question I have is whether you are just getting your coins from completing tasks or also exchanging your planted seeds for more coins?

  5. Any advice as to whether or not it would be worth it to purchase the Premium Plot? Not really a WTD, but I miss the posts that used to happen here during events where it laid out whether or not you should buy premium items. Always really helped me out a lot.

    • Sorry, with just me doing site now, just not got the time to do these. I bought it and my advice is no. I’ve more Buds than I can use, so unless you’ve a lot of spare Clams lying around keep them for a character

      • I, for one, do not miss the “Should we buy” posts. No need for premium characters in events if you play smart, be patient and check in every 4-6 hours when awake. In my opinion, they are never worth it and only make the game less challenging.

        • I think it all comes down to whether you can access the game at any time you want, I know for few days there I was in an area during the day where I had no wifi or mobile data access, made things rather difficult game wise. There’s no real wiggle room in events, so easy to fall behind. But like you, main,y thanks to insomnia, I’ve completed many events freemium. But I would never recommend losing sleep for a game.

  8. For iOS users, here is something to try. It worked for me, on Wednesday, and has worked once before, during an earlier event.

    DISCLAIMER: I DO have my game saved to an email address, but there is a chance this will work even if you don’t have your game saved to an email or Facebook account, as the data on the phone is supposed to be retained, while the App is removed. But I CANNOT GUARANTEE THIS! If you do have your game save to an account, there is little danger in trying this.

    – Go to Settings, General, iPhone Storage, Family Guy (note: you may have two Family Guy games listed, if you play “Another Freakin’ Mobile Game”: check the version number and icon to confirm).
    – Tap Offload App (NOT Delete App!)
    – The app will be deleted, but not the data, and you will see a button offering to Reinstall App. Do NOT do this here, as this will reinstall the “old” version.
    – Exit Settings, go to App Store, and download the “new” App offered, which should be 1.67.1 (or later).
    – Once installed, open the app, and you should be right back where you started. You do not need to go through the “Tutorial”, nor do you need to “reconnect” to your account, as those settings are retained by using this process. (You may, however, be prompted to “Reload to start the new event”.)

  9. Anyone have trees where land was cleared before on the far right of the play area (very last area where we were able to buy land? Not a real big deal just makes it look like some of my buildings are in the middle of the woods.

  10. The dispensary…. as you progress through crafting the buildings, it always remains 20 bud coins for bags of weed and 34 bud coins for weed/brownie combo. It seemed manageable with variations of 4-6 bags of weed for 20 bud coins and 3-6 bags of weed/ 1-4 brownies. But then it seems to expans on requirements without a compensating uptick in bud coins Now, I’m seeing an order of 20 bags of weed /18 brownies for 34 bud coins, which seems outrageous for 34 bud coins. That’s gonna be very time consuming and hard to do, especially when you can only get so few chocolate at a time.

    • That’s way exchanges have always been, start reasonable then go sky high causing players to stall

      Liked by 1 person

      • No RT it’s a glitch. I have the same problem. After the first two payouts of 20 coins mine jumped over your entire list of payouts to what this other player described.20 bags plus 18 brownies. It would take me 66 hours to get enough bags and brownies for 34 coins. Then do It again another 3-4 times to get the last two buildings then wait for the drops from the Apple. . I’ve messaged TinyCo and heard back that they are swamped with queries. They said they have fixed a lot of bugs and hope my issue has resolved itself. It hasn’t. So I have to chill. Everything else is done but the game is unplayable/unsinkable for me (us).

        • That player isn’t complaining that they jumped from easy to hard too fast, they are complaining that the harder the exchanges get doesn’t get you an increase in the Bud Coins you get. This is the way exchanges have always been, you need more and more materials to get similar amount currency. What you’re talking about is your exchanges have jumped from easy to hard too fast. You’re not only player saying this. I’ve not had the issue personally but gave raised it with TinyCo.

          • Sorry. The first time I entered the exchange room, I needed 4 bags to get coins. i didn’t have them, so I exited. I re-entered straight away (don’t know why) and it said I needed 5 bags. Odd. So I exited and re-entered and then it said 12 bags. Note: i never traded at any time. Eventually I made a trade of bags for coins twice. On my third trade, it asked for both bags and brownies. I don’t recall how many of each – something like 10 and 12. Outrageous. But I did it. Now, for my fourth trade, it wants 20 bags plus 18 brownies. I have completed every task in the almanac except the final two – which is to get the last two buildings. I’m glad I’m not the only one as I thought I was going insane. There are no possible ways to earn coins from quests, so my only way is to trade, and that will take me weeks and weeks to do. I’ve messaged TinyCo twice and heard back twice that they are busy and will get to it (but they hope the recent glitch fixes helped, which they haven’t).

            Thanks RT – I really appreciate this site.

    • I’m on Kindle also and experienced the same loop.
      I’ve been playing for years and I had never experienced a loop that prevented access to the game. Quite frustrating, trying over and over to at least get in the game to finish the previous event character jobs and completely locked out with that stupid loop, going back and forth.

      So I complained to TinyCo, sure enough the update was available, just like they said (timing is everything).

      “Hello! The Amazon update, version 1.67.1 is available to download. Can you please try refreshing the site so the update will appear?”

      [Like I hadn’t tried refreshing the screen each freaking time I tried to Update.] 😕

      Previously I had a problem with the upgrade link on the title page, the link would open Google Play rather than the Amazon Kindle AppStore. Both times that happened I had to wait about 5 days for the update to show up in the AppStore. Although I could bypass the Update link to access the game. Which wasn’t worth playing after that long.
      Soooo, I guess TinyCo is trying to fix platform related errors, only to cause a few more.

      Pleased that the game is progressing fairly quickly so far. Even though I was behind by a day, I already have gotten all of Farmer Peter’s “Denim Overalls.” 😜

After going through this look a few times, I tried shutting the game, then shutting the ipad and, now, I don’t get the update message, but I also don’t have the new event other than what I wrote above. I messaged Tinyco last night, but still no word from them.
