Version Android 3.4.5 – IOS 3.4.5


More Alternate Quahogs are here, you’ll find more formation HERE.


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


Duplicate character glitch is back – reported this to support.

Being forced to Alternate Lands to put characters on tasks – reported this to 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Game crashing on older devices, and those with older/outdated software continues, it may be they can no longer handle the game.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.


There’s 3 ways to do this, The first and best way is through your game main menu, select Help & Support and then tap ‘Contact Us’.

Go to their website and use the ‘Contact’ button:

However if neither of these are possible, then you can contact support via email. The email address to use is –

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.

After you find these during an investigation you will find they wander towards your sidewalks. You can find them by looking or using the Squatter Button.

Simply tap one of them and it’s gone.

The event rewards for clearing Snowmen is as follows:

For Each One Cleared
15 Acorns (Always)
1 Rope(Chance)

Thanksgiving bull

Here is another new battle, it’s similar to what we’ve seen in previous events.

Basically you need to find them during an investigation. If you find one he will appear over in the top right of your event area. Please note before you can attack him you need to repair him. Tap on the hammer to do this.

Now the heart meter level has been different each time I have found him but this might vary in your game.  To defeat them you need to get his heart meter to 0.

Now you’ve 24 hours to fully deplete his heart meter, and you do so by attacking him with:

Character: Rodeo Clown Peter
Damage: 2
Time: 3hrs

Character: Horseback Brian
Damage: 4
Time: 3hrs

Now once you get their heart meter to zero he will vanish, you will get your rewards and then start exploring areas to find him to attack again. He will be a very good source of Acorns.

The rewards levels I’ve seen are as follows:

Heart Meter 2 – 15 Acorns & 1 TNT
Heart Meter 4 – 30 Acorns & 2 TNT
Heart Meter 6 – 50 Acorns & 3 TNT
Heart Meter 8 – 60 Acorns & 5 TNT

***Remember as I said there may be other Heart Meter Levels, but until I see them in my game I can’t give any info on payouts***

There you have the overall basics to get you started through the first phase of the new event. Where are you so far? Anything particular you like the most? Suggestions or tips to fellow players? Let us know.

  1. Anyone else not having hats drop? I have had the store for 5 days and still none. Support said “Thanks and good luck”. Useless.


  2. I experienced the same issue and was eventually able to retrieve Bonnie however I am no longer able to enter the saloon.


  3. Had this happen to me too. Bonnie stuck, but questline action triggered completed. When I exited the game and came back in half an hour, Bonnie was walking around, but no payout for completing the investigation, and now clicking on the saloon does nothing. I can’t get it to open up, so I can’t send Bonnie again even if I wanted to. Tried going to an alternate Quahog, but still doesn’t work.

    The saloon is definitely glitched up.


  4. Anyone have advice on how to scroll and find a character going for the gold in the historical society museum? It won’t scroll or it will go blank. For some reason some characters won’t stay in storage. I didn’t realize this when I clicked send all to Go for the Gold. So characters I need for this event still have 3 hours to go. I can fast forward with clams or by watching videos if I can just find them in the long list.


    • With current event glitches just let them finish up the task, but best way to stop main characters from ending up on Go For Gold task by mistake is to put them in Tan Lines


  5. Hi
    I have the same problam with bonnie .
    I tried alternate quahog but nothing happaned.
    😔 she is the only one that can give turkey for this moment.
    Can someone check it? Thank you.


  6. Not sure if I’m the only one but I’m experiencing a bug where Bonnie is done investigating the saloon but she’s stuck and I can’t click to get her out. I reported it to support but it’s stopped me completely on the event.
