Carollers

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 Turkey Pie, you’ll get them here:

 Turkey Pie (Always) –  Get from craft in the Pie Shoppe, Festive Season Mystery Box

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

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

The event rewards for clearing Carollers are as follows:

Per Caroller Cleared
60 Mulled Wine  (Always)
1 Miseltoe (Chance)


Charity collector BOSS

The Charity Collector Boss will trigger as soon as you trigger part 2 of this weeks main Questline.  You will “Trip” him with the Turkey Pie you craft in the Pie Shoppe to get defeat him to the highest level possible and obtain the most prizes.

 Turkey Pie (Always) –  Get from craft in the Pie Shoppe, Festive Season Mystery Box

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 Turkey Pie 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 Turkey Pie
Rewards – 24 Mulled Wine & 1 Work Glove

2X – Requires 4 Turkey Pie
Rewards – 32 Mulled Wine & 2 Work Gloves

3X – Requires 6 Turkey Pie
Rewards – 40 Mulled Wine & 3 Work Gloves

4X – Requires 8 Turkey Pie
Rewards – 48 Mulled Wine & 4 Work Gloves

5X – Requires 10 Turkey Pie
Rewards – 56 Mulled Wine & 5 Work Gloves

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 final 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.
