Seriously? I missed the start of another timed event?

Prev13
no need to rush anything at this point, the event is here for 2 days. im pretty sure you still can do it without spending any donuts^^ just keep sending the character on their task at the casino, tap the gamblers in your town as well as your friends towns, and gamble gamble gamble :D

    The event seems pretty easy if you play often, I would wait to rush. I'm at 30K+ chips already and was a few hours late for the update. I'm checking in every 1-2 hours (for monorail), but seems like you'd be fine at every 4 hours as long as you clear your whole town.

    Make sure to focus on the main quest line and don't put that on hold. The act unlocks in stages. I *think* it was after part 8 of the questline where willie got a task (craft punk) to unlock crafting.

    The only thing you missed was the free Loch Ness "Nessie" playable character we all got on day one.
    Man she's beautiful. So many great visual tasks on land AND in the water. (her "Do a backstroke" is priceless)
    AND she earns double event currency?!?!





























    (Ok, none of that happened)

    ((you will be fine, you can catch up!))

    Check in here or your game regularly, and you won't be caught by surprise 2 days or more in.......
    But this one is pretty easy so far, I think you can catch up fine at this point...... without spending

    The events are starting to make me sad because I'm always a few days late joining Act1 and I get behind the curve. :? :hunf:

    So you must be the one who tapped buildings in my Aynonnimowse game earlier. I was busy tapping stuff and didn't think to look for the name until it was too late.

    You should join my Google group. The link is in my signature. Admittedly I was a little late on this one (about 8 hours) but that's a lot better than being 3 or 4 days behind when they push the update.

    Only I can post to the group so there's no spam or gabbing.
    Only I can see members.
    It's Google based so it's as secure as Google.

    Oh, and I think a Google ID is required to join.

    Well the updates aren't automatic for me. I have to apply them through the google play store.

    So unless I check the forums every single day, I miss the first few days of new events when they start.

    I've tried everything associated with auto/updates on my phone(android), and I also use Bluestacks2™.

    Monorail gives chips?

    i feel ya the update hit while i was at work, got night shift so got home, slept, and woke up 1 day behind,

    the above post:
    no monorail doesnt craft chips, however characters required for the monorail are also required for the event

    If your a SH billionaire and have Paris Texan she can make chips, if not mistaken this is the first time shes been used for an event, crafting event currency i mean.

    Other than that the event is somewhat easy although the Moe Slots are pure luck, or RNG if your a programmer, or i dont know, Occams Razor, or Razor Gillette.

    Don't panic.

    I started the last two events two days late and still got all the prizes with regular play.

    Where is absolutely no need to panic ... yet

    I think a lot of people with complete Act 1 with the most of a week to spare.
    I'm already 2 days a head of TSTO Addict's time table with speed I earn casino chip (without using donuts)

    It doesn't give chips, sorry that wasn't clear. Meant I'm checking in to complete monorail tasks every 1-2 hours. I put my characters on event tasks so it's a grind to complete monorail at the same time.

    I got the impression that they pre- announce on Facebook. Maybe it's worth setting up the minimum steps necessary to get the notification they send out there, so you'll know when to check in here for the announcement it's live.

    I have auto updates set and google play didnt even update the game. Here it is 2 days into the event and had there not been another app ichave set not to auto update with an update I would not have even known an update was here and the game did not update as it was supposed to. This really aggravates me that they can force you to update 24 hours after an event ends but care less for the players when a new event goes live and not pop up message in game to force update you to start the event. Heck they have the ability to push notification and could even send a push notification to your device the moment the event goes live.

    Maybe you should log in at least just once a day and then you wouldnt miss the first couple of days of an event....
