ADDICTS ANNOUNCEMENTS & INFORMATION

***Post is complete with this week’s information***

***Note you need Mulled Wine and Humbugs for various things, so if you see some disappearing from your total towards unlocking characters, it’s probably because you used them to craft or buy buildings, and vice versa. So don’t panic if you think you had more than you’ve got as you’ll constantly using them. I’ve put up a post covering all the places to get Mulled Wine HERE***

***Thanks for your patience with my blogging just now, as much as this was delayed mostly by technical issues, I do have other things utilising much of my time just now, this means at times I can’t give this site my full attention***

EVENT AREA IN QUAHOG

There are 4 items in the usual event area and these are as follows:

Olde Toy Shoppe

Pie Shoppe

Scrooge Peter – click on the hammer to repair him for unlocking. You’ll find his unlock requirements in the characters section above.

Jacob Marley Quagmire – he is the hammer closest to the Olde Toy Shoppe, I’ve left him unrepaired in the image above so you can see, make sure you only repair him once you’re ready. You’ll find his unlock requirements in the characters section above. But he basically needs Mulled Wine and a Humbugs and as you’ll be using these for other things to start with, delaying his timer is obviously an option as repairing him is not essential in the early parts of the main Questline.


Olde toy shoppe

Here is where you will trade the Event Currency you collect while playing the game to unlock Buildings & Decorations to use to further your game play in the Event.

Here are the items you can unlock during Week One…

***Worth noting is the low clam cost to buy out the building once you only need Humbugs, they appear to be cheaper than they should at 4/5 Clams per Humbug (they are 20 Clams each when buying them out to unlock Jacob Marley Quagmire)***

Offices Of Scrooge And Marley: No drops
Cost ~ 60 Mulled Wine

Lovelost Ledgers: Chance Drop of 1 Pork every 4hrs
Cost ~ 120 Mulled Wine & 2 Humbugs

Scrooges School House: Chance Drop of 2 Old Candles every 8hrs

Pie shoppe

This will be you’ll trade your items, it’s essentially a “Crafting” area where you will combine materials to make the Festive Drinks you need to clear the Festive Children and the Pork Pies to Trip Fezziwig Giant Chicken.

 Festive Drink

Needed to craft: 15 Mulled Wine

Time to manufacture: 1hr

And here’s a reminder of where you’ll get the materials you need for crafting Festive Drinks:

 Mulled Wine (Always): Get from Bruce Cook BBQ, Ghost Of Christmas Past Bruce Stay Positive, Chris Burn His Finger, Mort Light A Candle, Bonnie Strike A Match, Jerome Be Noble, Lois Consider Burlesque, Quagmire Make A Hot Drink, Scrooge Peter Hoard A Feast, Jacob Quagmire Marley Long For Food, Battle Fezziwig Giant Chicken, Clear Festive Children, Wine Carte, Wine Stalls, Wine Shoppe, Completing Questline Parts

Once you select them you’ll see your items preparing in the section on the right. The clam cost to speed them up is also shown there. Remember you can be crafting up to 6 items in the Queue at a time. If the queue is full you will have to wait until one finishes before adding more into the Queue.


FESTIVE CHILDREN

These are the little baddies this week of the 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 Festive Drink, you’ll get them here:

 Christmas Punch (Always) –  Get from craft in the Pie Shoppe

Once you have a Festive Drink you will find Festive Children  wandering  around your sidewalks.

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

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

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

The event rewards for clearing Festive Children are as follows:

Per Festive Child Cleared
25 Mulled Wine  (Always)
1 Children’s Toy (Chance)


FEZZIWIG GIANT CHICKEN

The Fezziwig Giant Chicken Boss will trigger as soon as you start week 1 of the event.  You will “Trip” him with the Pork Pies you craft in the Pie Shoppe to get defeat him to the highest level possible and obtain the most prizes.

 Pork Pie (Always) –  Get from craft in the Pie Shoppe

You’ll see him wandering your sidewalks with a timer above his head.

Simply tap him and you’ll see his timer, the level he’s at, the requirement to Trip him at that level and the rewards. Simply collect the Pork Pies necessary for the trip then hit, eh, “TRIP“.

Here is the general breakdown of trades costs and rewards. The item you need to trade may differ from mine but the amounts needed will be the same.

1X – Requires 2 Pork Pie
Rewards – 8 Mulled Wine & 1 Humbug

2X – Requires 4 Pork Pie
Rewards – 16 Mulled Wine & 2 Humbug

3X – Requires 6 Pork Pie
Rewards – 24 Mulled Wine & 3 Humbug

4X – Requires 8 Pork Pie
Rewards – 32 Mulled Wine & 4 Humbug

5X – Requires 10 Pork Pie
Rewards – 40 Mulled Wine & 5 Humbug

You have 24hrs to hit the highest level before he will rest (cool down). His cool down is 2 hours.

Please note when he returns he will be back at 1x unless you’ve used clams to wake him at the level he went into cool down at.


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. Wish there was a way to bypass buildings as nearly got all the stuff apart from hats for Scrooge Peter from just opening two buildings and it seems better to use the stuff to unlock Quagmire.

  2. What do you recommend focusing on first unlocking Quagmire or the buildings

    • If you’ve started the timer on Jacob Marley Quagmire’s you’ll need to look at what you’re collecting each day and how much you need for everything, including unlocking him, before his timer expires to make that decision. It really depends how often you’re playing etc, whether you’ve bought any premium stuff so it’s hard for me to say.

    My game is extremely frustrating. Originally I only could not clear festive children but now my game automatically switches back to the homepage shortly after I close the first text box. Is there any way to fix this problem?

  5. Will it be really hard to get to the top of the Fezzwig Giant Chicken as only Bruce drops the required items?
