Hoverboard Hipsters

These are the little baddies in this event and are quite simple to deal with, it’s just more of the tap, aim and fire we’ve seen in previous events. Before you can clear them you’ll need to get a Street Taco, you’ll get them here:

 Street Tacos (Common) –  Get from Quagmire Make A Custom Order, Jerome Enjoy Fine Mexican Food, Avocado Toast Truck

Once you have a Street Taco you will find Hoverboard Hipsters walking  around your sidewalks.

Simply tap one of them to bring up the targeting screen.

Then move the Street Taco until the green target circle is on a Hoverboard Hipster, you’ll know it’s in target as it will turn purple, then simply hit the check mark to clear the Hoverboard Hipster.

I am seeing up to a maximum of 8 in my game.

The event rewards for clearing Hoverboard Hipster’s are as follows:

Per Hoverboard Hipster Cleared
4 Followers (Always)


Pop Up Ads

In Week 1 you’ll find the Clear Pop Up Ads Mini Game available and you’ll need 2 Laptops to play.

How to Play: Collect 2 Laptops, then tap on the Mouse Icon. You can also tap the Safe Place building!!!

Then tap “Go”.

This will then take you to the mini game.

Tap “Go” again to start.

You will see Pop Up Ads and you have to “Clear” (tap with finger) to earn prizes.. I saw 3/4 Ads on each round, you have 20 seconds to clear as many as you can.

Mini Game Requires:
2 Laptops Per Try

Time to Play:
20 Seconds

Chance Payout:
Followers – you get 1 Follower for every Pop Up Ad you clear

TAP AS FAST AS YOU CAN!! BUT REMEMBER THIS MINI GAME REALLY ISN’T HARD.

 Laptops (Always) – Get from Man Bun Peter Write A Bog Post, Hipster Brian Look Up Reviews,

    • Oh oh oh… just realised i had spen them on the decorations required im the main quest line (facepalm). Still feels like another confusing event though. The last event was the first time i simply gave up and took a break from playing for a couple of weeks.
      Jam city are losing me i think.

  3. This seems to be progressing decently. I should have man bun peter by this weekend. They do have two things going that i always dislike: requiring building currency to unlock a character/costume (this slows stuff down so much) and less than great drops on the base currency (in this case tacos). I really wish they’d make base currency “always” and then they can make it a chance drop from there.

  5. Why is there a task to earn the Peter costume, that requires you using the Peter costume, unless you purchase Brian costume
