It will also glitch on people who already have it, yes?

    I'm not sure this works since people who already had the building are getting the glitch. If you stored it and didn't get it, you probably just got lucky.

    Placed it immediately on receipt at 9am BST, no glitch.

    Other factor may be timing of storytelling

    My sequence (all times BST, on iOS9):

    6.30 am collect overnight spawns and campfire, and restart story - 8am shopkeeper menu option appears - 9am house of evil appears, placed no problem - 10.30am collect from campfire (shop menu now shows 1 of 4 for daily task completed) - restart story

    Before reading any of these posts, I got mine this morning, I stored mine and then finished clicking stuff, pulled it out of inventory and placed it and it's not working right. So I don't believe storing it first works all the time either.

    Did you have a story ongoing and still to be collected or were the kids waiting for something to do ?

    I stored mine immediately upon receiving it just now, collected a few shops and handshakes, cleared a spot on my boardwalk for it and then placed it and it is still all glitches with the over lapping text and blank center screen.

    I don't remember what I did. How can I check if glitch affects me?

    Edit: Just saw the details, luckily I am not affected.

    Received the house of evil today (new building), placed it right away, NO story was being told at the campfire.

    Working as intended (atm) - 1 camp fire story completed now, counter is at 1/4.

    On Android.

    Fingers crossed it gets sorted real quick for those with problems

    Already don't understand this. I am on 2/4 of the task. What is the glitch?

    PS: I got the House of Evil when it first came out.

    Reading about a bit, the house of evil gift (or icon if you previously had it) unlocked world-wide at 9am BST but the daily challenges do not unlock/start until 8am local time.

    The glitch was hitting people who's time zone gives them the house of evil (and access to the daily challenge screen) before the daily challenges unlock. So the screen does not work.

    It looks like it fixes itself after 8am local time for those that have the glitch.

    Like you i am in the UK so shouldn't have a problem. I stored mine when it was given and quite happy to leave it there a while.... Just in case :)

    I got it and stored it imediantly than brought it out and it was glitching, so I stored it and exited my game. Came back and it was fixed. It is 8 am right now.
