EVENT ANNOUNCEMENTS 

Stamp Card is back.

All returning characters and costumes are available in Quahog Histirucal Society as well.

The content you see will depend on what you already have.


CURRENT APP VERSION

Version 2.1.4


GAME NOTICEABLE CHANGES

Nothing new


EVENT GLITCHES & ISSUES

I think the FAQ is wrong with references to Patches, it should be Humpty Dumpty Cleveland but I’ve covered both just to be safe.

You need to place the new versions of the buildings for materials to drop. And some of the buildings don’t show as available.

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

The main menu buttons are mixed up, Shop takes you to the FAW and FAQ takes you to the shop.


GLITCHES & ISSUES

Clam award loop – doesn’t effect play but please let TinyCo know if is happening in your game.

Game crashing on older devices, and those with older/outdated software continues, it may be they can no longer handle the game.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.


HOW TO CONTACT GAME SUPPORT

There’s 2 ways to do this, The first and best way is through your game main menu, select Help & Support and  then tap ‘Contact Us’.

However if this isn’t possible, then you can contact support via email. The email address to use is – support@jamcity.com

RICH OLD LADIES

These are the little baddies this week of the event and are quite simple to deal with, it’s just a simple tap and they are gone.

As always you will find these wandering around your sidewalks. You can find them by looking or pressing the Squatter Button. Then tap one of them and it’s gone.

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

The event rewards for clearing them are as follows:

Per Rich Old Lady cleared: 
1 2020 Glasses (Always)
1 New Year Top Hat (Chance)

    What does first rank of quahog historical society mean??

  2. What is balloon drop amount for Incheon International Airport? I see that the drop rate is every 8 hours and uncommon, but I have collected 4 times from the damn thing now with no drops. 😖 I think I saw another user here said that he got all the balloons within the first day, which leads me to ask my question. 🙂

  3. I already have Incheon Airport and Pizza Meets Beer…lame you have to acquire them again in order to get them to drop…

  4. Not happy about the fact i cannot play this time aince i do not have Consuela, and have to use her for New Year, New Me pt 4. Is there no way around this part of the event? I feel this is just tiny co forcing us to spend real currency to obtain her.

  5. Since I don’t already have Bald Eagle Chicken, Steel Throne Dragon, Bad Boy Cleveland, or Cheshire Cat Quagmire, I cannot verify which of their tasks are event materials droppers. The tasks listed in the in-game FAQ area don’t match any of the ones on the Side Quest pages here.

    Also, even though they are included in the FAQ listing, I see no event materials tasks for Carter, Seamus, Cleveland Jr., Lois, or Patches. I guess Patches is ‘included’ because the character is available to earn if not already unlocked but why would you waste event materials when you can get it for under 1000 medals on Rank 9 of the Quahog Historical Society?

    Thankfully, you added in Al Harrington, Bad Boy Cleveland (skin), Bald Eagle Chicken (skin), Brian, Cheshire Cat Quagmire, Cleveland Brown, Jerome, and Steel Throne Dragon which were left out of their FAQ.

    • Some only drop currency but the FAQ has few errors, posdibly produced in a short time with the holidays.

      I’m thinking Patches isn’t part of event at all, but I’ve left him in just in case I’m wrong.

  6. I’m on Part 5 and have placed the first two buildings. Once I got the 5 red balloons from it, I dumped Incheon Airport to storage to make room for the even larger second building. I almost have the new Cleveland character unlocked. The event has been out less than a day and I’m making huge progress — without spending a nickel — so I like this one. But they have to stop with the huge buildings and/or open up more land. This 10×10 building is ridiculous.

    • The Humpty Dumpty Cleveland isn’t new it’s a returning character from Lois In Wonderland. And all the buildings have all been out before. Incheon Airport was part of the Winter Summer Reunion event. Most new year events are returning content but they usually put a new character to keep players that have everything busy. But I’m enjoying an easy few weeks as I’ve got it all.

    • I’m just tossing this out there. But I know due to limited space and TinyCo adding more and more buildings all the time. I actually have limited buildings out in my Quahog. I have one group of buildings in one section for collecting coins that have no purpose anymore. And then in my “main area” (where I have sidewalks and such) I only have buildings that are used a lot for tasks, events, etc.

      This, in turn, gives me a lot more room for the event buildings that are placed in the Quahog area that are big. I don’t know if that would help you in your limited space or if you just want a fully compact Quahog, I would guess to move some buildings around or place some in storage that don’t really have any purpose.

      • A lot of people on,y have limited buildings out to stop their games getting slow or crashing so there hasn’t been a big push fir more space.

  7. Do you know if the items that don’t make drops that are making a reappearance like Jabberwocky Herbert, Lazy Beer River, Tall 5th Anniversary Fountain Prop, etc. are new unique items or the same as the originals. I do understand that the Pizza Meets Beer, Po-Po a Go-Go Bar, and Incheon International Airport items are unique duplicates of the originals which won’t provide event items or meet the requirements to complete quest actions.

    • All are returning – Jabberwocky Herbert is from Lois in Wonderland, Lazy Beer River was Septemberfest, Tall 5th Anniversary Fountain Prop was in the first 5th Anniversary event, Writers Block was Behind The Scenes, Thermostat Security Ststem was Fat Husbands and Mount Rushmore was Let Freedom Ring.
