Pie shoppe

This will be you’ll trade your items, it’s essentially a “Crafting” area where you will combine materials to make the Figgy Puddings you need to clear the Orphans and attack the Poor House Boss.

 Mincemeat Pie

Needed to craft: 1 Mincemeat

Time to manufacture: 30mins

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

 Mincemeat (Common) –  Get from Bob Cratchit Brian Enjoy A Treat, Mort Order Dessert, The Red Nose Public House, Meat-Shaped Dried Fruit Carte, Scrooges Grave

You’ll still be crafting the previous week’s items as the main Questline requires. These were:

 FIggy Pudding

Needed to craft: 1 Fig

Time to manufacture: 1hr 15mins

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

 Figs (Common) –  Get from Scrooge Peter Have A Snack, Chris Eat Dried Fruit, The Poor House, Dickensian Party Parlour, Produce Crate

 Festive Drink

Needed to craft: 15 Mulled Wine

Time to manufacture: 1hr

 Pork Pie

Needed to craft: 1 Pork

Time to manufacture: 45mins

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.


Charwomen

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 Mincemeat Pie, you’ll get them here:

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

Once you have a Mincemeat Pie you will find Charwomen 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 Charwomen, you’ll know it’s in target as it will turn purple, then simply hit the check mark to clear the Mincemeat Pie.

I am seeing up to a maximum of 4 in my game.

The event rewards for clearing Charwomen are as follows:

Per Charwoman Cleared
42 Mulled Wine  (Always)
1 Coin (Chance)


Grave digger

The Grave Digger Boss will trigger as soon as you progress through the Fortune Haunting Questline.  For me he appeared at Part 2. You will “Trip” him with the Mincemeat Pies you craft in the Pie Shoppe to defeat him to the highest level possible and obtain the most prizes.

 Mincemeat 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 Mincemeat 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 Mincemeat Pies
Rewards – 6 Mulled Wine & 1 Dirt

2X – Requires 4 Mincemeat Pies
Rewards – 12 Mulled Wine & 2 Dirt

3X – Requires 6 Mincemeat Pies
Rewards – 18 Mulled Wine & 3 Dirt

4X – Requires 8 Mincemeat Pies
Rewards – 24 Mulled Wine & 4 Dirt

5X – Requires 10 Mincemeat Pies
Rewards – 30 Mulled Wine & 5 Dirt

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 third 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.

  2. The Mrs Cratchit Lois drops are painfully rare. I had two bonnets drop from Quagmire and Lois and they didn’t show up in my total bonnets! I’ve been cycling Quagnire, Lois and Bonnie tasks all week and am still only showing one bonnet. Very frustrating. Anyone else have that?
