EVENT GLITCHES & ISSUES

Turkey Meg is not in the mystery box so don’t try this until it’s fixed.

Questline dialogue glitch continues.

Event buildings are sometimes locked for random players, only TinyCo can fix this so let them know through your game support.

Some battles are glitched, characters health shows as reduced when should be full, or wins don’t count. Please contact game support.

Some random info boxes missing and wrong titles on things, none affecting gameplay.


OTHER GLITCHES & ISSUES

Quahog Historical Society Ranks not unlocking. Support is aware and looking at a fix.

Quahog Historical Society Clams bring added then removed. Again support is working on a fix.

No update in App Store or crashing with update, please contact game support.

Game crashing on older devices, and those with older/outdated software continues, it may be they can no longer handle the game. What I can tell you is if your device runs on 2gb of ram you may struggle with crashing, if it has less than 2gb ram it probably won’t run at all.

Tough prison thug

At Pt. 2 of the main Questline you will trigger the Tough Prison Thugs in your Quahog. You will have to wait for them to appear before you can battle them and have at least one of the characters listed below available.

Battling Tough Prison Thugs is similar to the battles you’ve done in previous events, there’s honestly nothing we’ve not seen before. You will find them wandering your sidewalks, you can either find them by looking or if you have a big decorated town use the Squatter Button. When they appear,  tapping on one will bring you up the Defeat The Tough Prison Thug screen, which gives you all the battle information.

I’ve simplified the information from that screen below.

Opponent Stats:

Weak Prison Thug: 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, Undisclosed chance of knockout

Characters you can use to defeat Weak Prison Thug Stats

***Please not you can select up to 2 to attack at a time***

Prison Peter  ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 40% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs
Prison Wife ~ 12 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 20% Chance knockout, Heal time 9hrs
Lawyer Cleveland ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 60% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs
Prison Quagmire  ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 30% Chance knockout, Heal time 6hrs
Turkey Meg  ~ 8 Health Points, 8 Damage Hit, 20% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs

And remember if you send in more than one character to attack, which I recommend if possible, the damage the Tough Prison Thug does will be split across them. So if you’ve 2 characters fighting him he will hit each for 2 damage instead of 4, unless he misses or does a knockout blow then the damage will vary. And that’s another thing to remember, you might get a lucky blow and defeat him instantly, but likewise he can do the sans to you.

The rewards you get will depend on whether you only damage him, this is counted as a defeat, or if you fully kill him, this is a success. Remember any damage you do to him will stay until you attack him again.

DEFEAT/ROUND Payout:
Nothing

SUCCESS Payout:
1 Ball Gag (Always)
1 Handcuff (Always)
5 Muskets (Always)
2 Tattoo Guns (Always)

Cost To Battle: 3 Makeshift Shivs

Now another point worth mentioning about your character’s Health healing  it only starts to heal once it hits 0, so if you’ve 4/8 Health it will NOT go back up to 8/8 over time, it will only start to restore once you’re at 0/8. You can restore your character’s Health instantly but it costs at least 64 Clams, so I don’t advise it.


prison squad

***The info below for these could change as I believe either they or a new boss which hasn’t been put in the game for some reason this week should have required Handcuffs to attack not the Metal Bats from last week, so they may change this***

Here’s the basic info for this week:

  1. My game won’t let me advance to Week 2 – it refuses to acknowledge that I have defeated the Prison Squad – many times. I started contacting TC after the second (ignored) defeat) and I’ve contacted them 2 more times since, and still no response. So, now, with over 3700 clams, I believe it’s time to quit this @$@%^ game!

    • Give them time to respond, support have been inundated with tickets this week. They are going through them as fast as they can. But I will ask them to look out for tickets such as yours.

  2. I spent over 1,500 Clams on the Mystery Box before I realized that Turkey Meg wasn’t in it, and neither were the 170 Clams, I emailed them yesterday afternoon, since the in-game message system hasn’t worked since last Summer, but never heard back from them 😢

  3. Sorry I do not understand if Turkey Meg is missing in the mistery box or not. You say is missing at the start of the post but then you say you won her in 3 attempts…
    And how can I understand if the glitch has been correct?
    Thank you

  4. My game does not show King Stewart as a character to get Shrooms. Is this another in the long list of game glitches?

    • King Stewart III definitely shows a 6hr task Call For A Feast with a Shroom drop. If you’re in Week 2 and it’s not showing please contact game support.

      • WHAT? I didn’t even know King Stewart III had a task dropping materials needed for this event, and on top of that, I discover that I’ve missed this particular character during the Facebook login issue that happened earlier this month. Now I’m actually kinda pissed with all these issues lately, with the historical society not working properly AND the mystery box without Turkey Meg, while also being unfairly affected by being locked out just some weeks ago. They should really award whatever was missed to anyone that didn’t get the chance to unlock characters or costumes during such lockouts from the game

        • I get your frustrations. You make some more very good and fair points.

          Like

          • Well, at least they managed to finally get the historical society working, even though there’s still no sign of a fix for the mystery box glitching. Unless they only fixed it for those who didn’t already click beyond the point of no return, which for me honestly wasn’t that many clicks because I already had most of the items inside without Turkey Meg being in there…
