2018 – The Year That Was: Quest For Stuff Style

Happy New Year Addicts!!!

Goodbye 2018! Hello 2019! It’s been a crazy year on the site, lots of ups, downs and everything in between. But despite losing our fellow bloggers Lotty and Bunny way back in 2017, many of us are still here, and hopefully still smiling and having fun. But I thought I’d step away from reality for a just little while and take a look back at 2018 in FGQFS. Want to join me?image

Ok for those of you who are still reading, I’m sure you’ll agree that sometimes as we’re constantly grinding away at the latest event we don’t get any time to reflect on the many events that went before. So I that’s why I do these year,y posts to have a quick look back at everything TinyCo has thrown at us in the year gone by. And boy even although once again there was a lot of events, as the year progressed they saw less content.


Now I’m not going to do complete reviews of each and every event, I’d be here until 2020 doing that, more a reminder of the events then you can tell me in the comments what you thought about 2018. And of course there’s a poll or two where you can vote for your favourite and least favourite events of 2018.

End of Event Post – Ok there’s no review yet as this event is still going but it’s near enough the end for us to know if we liked it or not, so it’s included in the voting.


So there you have it, a little reminder of everything TinyCo threw at us during 2018. Now if you’ve got a few minutes please use them to share your thoughts on 2018 in the comments and to complete the polls below.

All the best for the year ahead, and thanks for supporting my solo efforts to keep the site going.

  3. My favourite events were the Masters of the universe one and Too many Griffins in the kitchen. I loved them both. It’s too bad that I was on holiday during both of them and so I couldn’t play much and missed the last week of both. I’m counting on the best of 2018 for a second chance to get Skeletor Stewie and Natalia.
    Too many less favourite ones. I found Quahog Con, Quahog 500, 420 guy and The Good, the Bad and the Griffin completely boring and unappealing. Good thing is that Quahog Con came during my two-week holidays in England so this time I didn’t miss something I like.

    PS: This makes it look like I travel a lot, but I don’t. 2018 was an exceptionally good year for travelling lol

  4. Hopefully, 2019 will feature some interesting events. I haven’t played since picking up Burt Reynolds in “Quahog 500.” There was a glitch in “The Good, the Bad, and the Griffins” where the next character I was supposed to collect items to unlock never appeared in the designated spot, so I couldn’t continue with the event. The lack of response from TinyCo didn’t help. I just check here to see what the events are, and decide if I want to play them. Otherwise, I haven’t been wasting my time on a) lame mini-events, or b) lame major events that will have a glitch that leaves me unable to finish. I still have goals I’d like to meet, like filling Tan Lines to maximum capacity, but I’m too busy to be throwing away my time on something I can’t complete, as is the case when an event glitches up and TinyCo is unresponsive when we inform them of it. There are at least six to eight characters or outfits I’ve been screwed out of because of these glitches. Adding insult to injury, I actually earned Liberace in the event he was featured in late last year, only for TinyCo to give players another chance because of a glitch, yet nothing like that was ever done when I was one of the people hurt by a glitch. Why would they be so generous one time, and ignore us every other time? Doesn’t seem fair to give some people a 2nd chance and never give it to others.

    Anyhow, I imagine there’ll be a “Best of 2018” coming, so I’ll check back to see what characters are offered, and maybe I’ll play it again.
