    Hmm... Maybe I should edit the thread title since it's not a glitch, it's a feature. I didn't read the walkthrough and thought there was more of a questline. I didn't realize it stopped cold with the trick-or-treating till Oct. 20.

    Looks like there will be eleven more days of this (until 20th) so - at a rough guess - around 20 bags per trick-or-treater.

    (interlude while I consider the baffling prize point system and have a flashback to pink and blue items)

    So, enough time to get enough bags - or not really enough time?

    :roll: (bump :wink: )

    If it's supposed to loop, then no more for this part of thr questline?

    Looks that way.

    * Just noticed that if you open bags using this, they add to your total of 10 - even if you won the bag by tapping something else.

    When completing the "send 10 kids trick-or-treating" make sure you click on the task book icon to find your completed Trick-or-treaters. I clicked directly on the first 4 or 5 kids and didn't get any credit for completing the task. For the rest I clicked on the task book icon, which then auto-found the kids, and I got credit for the last 7 kids. Now I have to do the whole task again just to get those last 3 trick-or-treaters. Very annoying. At least I still got all the prize bags for all the kids.

    You've been warned!

    Just a quick question, did all your kids finish or just the ones on an 8 hour task? I had 7 kids with 8 hour tasks and several more on 16 hour trick or treating tasks. Currently I sent the 7 out again while I wait for the others to finish up.

    I had more than 10 but as people have pointed out, I was wrong. This isn't a glitch. There's no more questline after this until Oct. 20 so we are supposed to keep sending the kids out trick or treating over and over again. It would have been nice if they made it clearer in the game. A lot of people assumed they were getting stuck on this when it keeps appearing in your task bar.

    You also get a bag as a reward. Bronze, Silver, Gold, repeat.

    A little confused. So this quest never clears until the 20th?

    Well what I did notice was, I didn't get credit for them trick or treating nor opening the bags, either , if I didn't open the task first. But those wee kiddies will be dressing up and gathering through this whole update. They're a reliable source of bags :D

    I did mine this way, then the task said 10/10, but popped right back down to 7/10 again. Open Treat Bags stayed at 10/10 tho. Not sure what is up.

    I believe so, happened to me too, but I'm not really bothered as ill complete it soon

    Should have read this before...and I lost the bags credit too...

    Also, I didn't see anything about a max of probe you can collect but I canno collect probes from my neighbors anyone knows after how many we don't collect anymore? :?

    The same thing happened to me and I'm finally almost done with round 2 of trick or treating, but on the bright side I have gotten a lot of treat bags :)


    I did this twice. I figured since it early in the game, I send them out for a third time. Then I realized it was normal.

    No, the quest constandly repeats till end event :wink:
    But tab on the quest for sure otherwise you dont get the prizebag for completing the "quest"
