It’s snowing


Event buildings are sometimes locked for random players, only TinyCo can fix this so let them know through your 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Game crashing on older devices, and those with older/outdated software continues, it may be they can no longer handle the game.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.


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 –

Sleigh mini game

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 Anti Aircraft Missile. Once you have one just tap on the Pointer Icon at the bottom of the event 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 the Sleighs. The amount of Anti Aircraft Missiles you have available in the Lower Left. The SHOOT button in the Lower Right. (If you’ve no Anti Aircraft Missiles 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 Sleighs. You can also see the target is orange if it’s not on a sleigh, or green because it’s targeting a sleigh.

It will turn green once you are on target. Don’t hit SHOOT if the target isn’t green as above. You’ll just waste materials.

You know this game well by now, it’s  really an “Aim n Shoot”  set up. You wait for a minute while the sleighs float around, then move the circle to target them. It should turn green when a sleigh is properly in target. It is usually possible to get 2, 3, or 4 at once,  so be patient and wait until you see a group of them overlapping each other and quickly hit SHOOT.

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

For Each One Cleared:
1 Sleigh Bell (Chance)
1 or 2 Last Minute Present (Chance)

Crazed shopper

These are the little baddies this week of the event and are quite simple to deal with, just more of the tap, aim and fire we’ve seen in previous events..

As usual will find they wander your sidewalks, you can find them by looking  there or using the Squatter Button.

Before you can clear them you’ll need to get a last minute present. Once you have this head to your sidewalks and simply tap one of them to bring up the targeting screen. Then move the it until the green target circle is on one, then simply hit the check mark to clear it.

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

The event rewards for clearing them is as follows:

For Each One Cleared:
10 Snowballs (Chance)
1 Sleigh Bell (Chance)
1 Secret Santa Gift (Always)

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