Please give your feedback on the previous event by clicking here!!!


This is a rerun of the Wild Winter event, there’s no new content.


Version Android 3.6.3 – IOS 3.6.5


It’s snowing


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


Couple of errors, and the ongoing crashing errors – an update is coming to resolve these.

Game crashing on older devices, and those with older/outdated software continues, it may be they can no longer handle the game.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: https://jamcity.helpshift.com/a/family-guy-the-quest-for-stuff/

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

With the new event we are seeing the return of an old style mini-game.

In order to be able to participate you’ll need to collect a Snowball. Once you have an Snowball just tap on the Snowball Icon in the bottom right of your screen.

After tapping on this, the mini game will appear.

You will see on the top of the screen the Rewards you can win from clearing Fires. The amount of Snowballs you have available in the Lower Left. The PICK button in the Lower Right. (If you’ve no Snowballs it will show More) Then in the center, you will see the circle that is essentially your target that you will use to get the Fires. You can also see the target is orange, this is because it’s not on a Fire.

It will turn green once you are on this. Don’t PICK if the target isn’t green as below. You’ll just waste Snowballs.

This is really an “Aim n Shoot” kind of set up. You wait for a minute while the Fires float around, then move the circle to target them. It should turn green when a Float is properly in target. After complaints in previous events Jam City have made the Fires smaller than the target so it’s easier to get them, only downside is this will make it harder to target multiple Fires. But it is still possible, usually to get 2 or 3, so be patient and wait until you see a group of Fires overlap each other like above then target them and quickly hit PICK.

To do this put your finger on the Target in the middle of the screen and drag it around to where the group of Fires are that you want to get. Try to make sure they are almost on top of each other so you can hit more than one.  Remember you’ve a better chance of clearing more if they are really on top of one another like above. You will then be given Rewards depending on how many Fires you clear. I’ve managed to destroy 4 at once at most so far.

The rewards you get will vary on how many Fires you destroy at a time.

Per Iceerg Destroyed:
1 Fireball Potions (Chance)
1 or 2 Salt (Chance)


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 Salt.you’ll get them from: Clearing Fires

Once you have one will find them wandering  around your sidewalks, either finding them by looking or using the squatter button.

Simply tap one of them to bring up the targeting screen.

Then move the Death Trap until the green target circle is on one.

I am seeing up to a maximum of 16 in my game.

The event rewards for clearing them is as follows:

Per Snowman Cleared:
1 Pink Scarf (Chance)
1 Ice Pick (Chance)

There you have the overall basics to get you started through this week of the latest Event. Where are you so far? Anything particular you like the most? Suggestions or tips to fellow players? Let us know.

  1. Yesterday, my game started not showing any of the buttons around the outside of the screen. Updated from 3.6.3 to 3.7.3 (iOS) and it’s still not showing, so can’t do Consuela’s vacuum, can’t send all for Gold, see questlines, etc. Anyone else having this issue?


    • Not had any other reports of this, and I’m fine on all my iOS devices. Could your device screen be the issue rather than the game, zooming too much?


  2. I wish they would repeat the Star Trek event

    Liked by 1 person

  3. Premature “What the Deuce?!?!?!”, in the fire/snowball/salt mini game, I managed to hit 5 fires at once and got TWO SALTS!!!! Then another time I hit 2 at once and got 4 salts… arrrggghhh!!!


  4. I’m missing winter Meg, and I don’t see her here, do you think will be available at some point?


    • She was in Phase 3 of the event so she’ll probably appear then so you’ll need play through the Questlines in Phase 1 & 2 to see her


  5. Steel Throne Dragon also drops crystals in my game.

    Missed out on Winter Meg last year, so hopefully this time I will succeed.


  6. soooo…if we have all of these characters already and buildings from the LAST time, there’s really no point in playing this event? Lol


    • Yeah, 3 weeks off go good behaviour 😅😅😅


      • Or 3 weeks to get out of the habit of playing daily and forget the game exists. Seems crazy to repeat an event. After 3 weeks my odds of hitting the next event at the start of it is very low and of I skip this and miss the start of the next… that may be it.


        • Yeah I think they should thrown a little something in to keep long term players busy, but they could still do that. Also bit strange they picked such a recent event to repeat but I’m guessing it was to give a chance to get costumes/characters that came after QHS
