    What triggers the Alien questline? I read that part of the quest is rewards you with 12 bombs. Those are things I would like

    There is no way I'm finishing that 150 goal. I'm only at 31.

    I was at 29 after 24 hours but was able to get to 150 this morning. Keep everyone that can making stink bombs. Play attention to when the trick or treaters spawn. This will allow you to get more at once. You can see there release at the portal like the other things that spawn.

    I wish I could help. It seemed to randomly pop up for me, but I really wasn't paying attention. You have to build Nostromo which takes 8 hours, then there is one other task (don't remember what it was) this gives your the stink bombs. Hopefully somebody else paid more attention. I woke up around 3 am to do the second part.

    The 12 pack is given if you buy alien. Not sure of trigger but it's associated with lois. Perhaps it's a fear point level?

    I'm at the halfway mark for trick or treaters now. Got a few more spirit vials, 4 books, and 5 poles and I have gb joe. 11 more candy corn and I can get the pulpit for Francis then dig him up - I will have all the items before digging him up then

    I'm so mad at this game right now.

    How many things are they going to hit us with at once?

    Cat Meg, alien, Francis, predator, stink bombs, dogs, banshees, latchers, brew decorations!?

    I don't even know how to check the status of the cumulative prizes, but it looks right now like I've already missed the lockers, since it's now pushing the 3rd prize. I don't see a timer like the fab 4 cars had.

    There was NO WAY to get enough latchers in time. I busted my **** to get Dianne and she only drops traps RARELY?? ****!!! No one else drops traps???

    Basically it looks like I've already lost the chance to get the ghostbusters ambulance. And if that is so i am definitely deleting this sadistic game. If the grand prizes are only obtainable by spending money, it should just say so. I'm sick of devoting all my free time to a game you simply cannot win unless you have money to burn. This is the third time that obsessive tapping just wasn't enough. I missed sexy stewie and the fab 4 bus like this, tapping night and day, spending all my clams, never enough. It's crap.
    All my designs look unfinished because i can't place as many plants, streetlights, and fences as i would like. PLEASE REMOVE THE LIMIT, EA!

    Idk what triggered the quest line, but its timing was awful!

    Right after i used up the bombs it gave me, THEN a mission props up saying throw 5 bombs. No credit for the ones i just wasted?? Thanks!!

    So be careful, don't throw them until it tells you to.

    The pulpit and the confessional I believe. I'm waiting until I have Mr. W.eed before I do Francis.

    I'm at 81/150 bombed kids.

    I haven't spent a single clam and I got Dianne with no problem as well as the lockers.

    It's these trick or treaters driving me nuts, they implement a new way to obtain them fast but not until I only had a day and a half left on my timer. I have 59 so far with only 1 day left, I doubt it will happen

    I'm at 117/150 now, so it should be smooth sailing from this point.

    Also, anyone else finding GB Joe's items are dropping easy? I only need seven more columns and I haven't even been trying for Joe yet.

    A couple times I had all the trick or treaters come from tge Halloween area in a line and I could bomb 12 at once but I don't know how I got them to spawn over there. I thought I'd I didn't log in for a while but when I logged in first thing in the morning they were just randomly around my town. I only need 24 more in 1 day. Should be easy

    Having to log in every 2 hours for a chance at the items needed to get Diane was the straw that broke this camels back. I'm done with the Family Guy game.

    I got both Ghostbuster Joe and Francis Griffin today. I am back trying to get Mr. We.ed. I still need over 10,000 spirit vials. Since there are now more people that drop spirit vials, I hope it won't take too long. Besides the initial issues with the trick or treaters, this week was really easy to complete.

    Same here. I got GB Joe easily using 50 clams to complete him when I was down to the rare items. :lol: Francis Griffin was quite easy as well, compared to Diane and Mr. Wee d, anyway. 8) I need over 10K vials as well for Mr. Wee d.

    That's the reason I like Family Guy. It takes dedication. It's obviously not for everyone but then you don't need to get Diane. You have the chance to get free premium items, it shouldn't be too easy

    Rant:

    Tapped Out does a good job, I think, of allowing 100% free players to get all the prizes. For some events, it's a community effort (or a timer ticking down, depending on how you see it). In others, you just need to add a few more log-ins a day to tap things or visit friends. There's only been one event I haven't finished, and that was this Easter with the wheel. I got most of the prizes, missed a few, but didn't really care about most of them and wasn't upset about it.

    Anyway, TQFS irritates me with how limited a free player can go towards getting prizes, like Diane Simmons. There was no way someone could've gotten her logging in every few hours; you needed to speed up actions with clams. She disappeared in a few days, so people felt the squeeze to "get her before she's gone". She wasn't my most wanted character, but having a ghost with tasks for Halloween would've been fun. If I had put money down to get her, however, I would've turned around and seen a new limited time character (Francis or one of the Ghostbuster skins) right after. That's a terrible cash grab.

    Their holidays aren't just a cash grab, though. They're way too close together. The circus event followed by the Egypt event followed by Comic Con followed by Halloween.. It's okay to have a break. I get that TinyCo wants people to be engaged in their game as much as possible, but it's a turn-off for me to log on and feel rushed to get this item, unlock this person, do the same routine for four weeks and do it again. Put out level updates more often than TSTO but keep the events shorter and make less of them.

    Event gripes aside though, I have spent a lot of time on this game and I find it to be fairly enjoyable.

    Hello all! :D

    We have a sticky thread in GD right now that will be compiling questions for the game's producer and showrunner about the Halloween event, and I thought it would be a good idea to let you friendly OT folks know get your input in.

    And by the way this is for the Simpsons game, not that other game.

    I love the regular updates, personally, and FG game has distinguished themselves by having mostly voiced characters, I love the in-game feedback capability which Tapped Out is sorely lacking. Heads up, after Halloween, American Dad characters will be coming to Quahog! Looking forward to that! 8)
