EVENT: Tea Party, Rupert, and Level 50!!! *Updated & Complete*

This is the full walkthrough of this weekend’s events.  If you want to read a very specific post about all-things Rupert, check out our Rupert post here!  So, BIG-TIME SPOILERS AHEAD! You don’t even need to have Stewie unlocked to participate in this event!  Click to read more:

First-off, out of NOWHERE, right when this update hit, I got this pop-up:

It looks like all the XP we’ve been earning since achieving level 40 wasn’t just being flushed down the toilet! The game was saving our XP numbers, and now out of nowhere it says I’m at level 50.  Oh, wait a minute… it still means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!  (no clams, no coins, nothing for levelling-up).  50 is a better arbitrary number than 40 though I guess, so it’s still a fun change in my book, and it’ll give folks more to shoot for.


Next, you’ll notice a new little blue button in the bottom right area of your screen.  Until 10 pm PDT Saturday, this was a giraffe, until 10 pm Sunday, it was an octopus, and now it has changed to a green dinosaur.  After tapping on this toy, you are introduced to this weekend’s game.  ***This picture was from the original launch of the update and shows a noon change time (it’s now 10 pm PDT) and giraffes (again, now it’s dinosaurs)***

This weekend’s new content involves helping Stewie in his quest for collecting toys for the guests of his weekend tea party.  The type of toy will also change on Sunday and Monday at 10 pm PDT, with the game ending some time Tuesday.  The toys are collected at the Uncommon drop rate by these 4-hour tasks:

Peter – Cook Disgusting Vegetables

Chris – Fat Kid Hula-Hoop

Bruce – Be a Good Listener

Quagmire – Fornicate With Giraffes

**At 10 pm PDT, your daily toy counter (the number next to the toy on your main screen) resets to 0.  BUT, if you had Peter, Chris, Bruce, or Quagmire on a toy-earning task before 10 pm, it seamlessly rolls into earning the new toy when the job finishes.***

Also, new items are now on splash screens and found in your purchase menu to help in your giraffe collecting: (***note that the Tea Party Mystery Box shown here is only there when you’re at either 6, 14, or 24 daily toys and are ready to open  a box***)

Screenshot_2014-07-19-00-19-37

Both new “buildings” are unnecessarily small & unassuming in my opinion for the giant amount of clams they cost; but each does drop a toy every time guaranteed (and the type of toy does change daily to help you through the whole event).

I did not buy a topiary (drops a toy, $20 & 15 XP every 2 hrs), but I did buy the SandBox (drops a toy, $30 & 20XP every 4 hrs). Can’t help but wonder aloud if it would have been nice to have made ONE of these two purchasable with COINS (maybe $10-$20k) and the other with clams?  #TinyCoCashGrab #SMH #FacePalm

Also as you can see in the picture above, there is now a Tea Party Mystery Box!  Opening the box is the reward for hitting the various levels of daily toys (6, 14, or 24), and the box can only be opened three times with each toy. **note again: this mystery box only shows in your purchase menu when you’ve hit a level and the box is ready to be opened**

Screenshot_2014-07-19-00-13-11The box contains the following premium/expensive items & buildings, and when you win one, it disappears from the box (meaning you will not get duplicates!!!).

Spotlights / Pawtucket Ale Truck / Lobster Shanty Restaurant / Peter’s Pirate Car / Herbert’s Ice Cream Truck / Koi Pond / Big Bubbly Fountain / Dansu Dansu Building / Gold Digger Island / Stewie Flower / Stewie Billboard / playable character RUPERT!!!!

***Initially 20 clams were included as a potential prize for the box, which made for 13 total prizes. They were removed at some point early in the event, and we got no reports of anyone actually winning them before they disappeared***

As you collect the daily toys, a bar will fill in at the top right of your screen, showing where you currently are in relation to the max daily limit of 24 toys.

Screenshot_2014-07-19-00-10-39

When you hit each level (6, 14, and 24), this screen pops up:

Screenshot_2014-07-19-00-12-48And you are now allowed to open the Tea Party Mystery Box once (for what it’s worth, I got an Ice Cream Truck on my first chance–BOO! Then I got RUPERT on my second chance!!!).  Being that you can open the box three times per toy, this means you could get a maximum of twelve cracks at the box.  Being that I count 12 possible gifts inside the box, if you are diligent and open every possible box, YOU WILL GET RUPERT! (and boy is he worth it)


The only gripes I have with this event are that all four of the toy-earning characters are heavily involved with LONG tasks for unlocking Stewie (like Bruce’s 20-hr task for Blueprints).  This meant that many players, myself included, were not able to begin earning toys in a timely fashion. But since this is a limited time event and Stewie will be there forever, UNTIL YOU HAVE RUPERT, THIS SHOULD TAKE PRECEDENCE OVER ALL DISTRICT 8 TASKS!!!

Also, I think the premium topiary and sandbox are both overpriced and underwhelming (and will be almost completely worthless when it’s over–like so many previous premium items).  Plus, they TOTALLY FALSELY-ADVERTISE THE TOPIARY! Check this picture out:

CaptureWHERE THE HECK IS THE BIG STONE COLUMN IN THE MIDDLE OF IT, TINYCO?!?! (Shoutout to “Counter Sniper” on Facebook for the pic)

Don’t get it twisted though: I LOVE ALL NEW QUESTS FOR NEW STUFF!!!!!!

So, what are YOUR thoughts about the new content?  Are YOU going to buy the topiary or sandbox?  Are YOU getting tired of the ‘Boxes’ already (Sarcophagi, 4th of July Box, now this one…).  Are YOU excited for Rupert!  What have you won from the box so far? Let us know what YOU think?  You know we LOVE hearing from you!

Thanks for reading & happy tapping!

  1. Disappointed. Waited forever for the last toys. Got one more shot at the boxes. Seemed it was 12 hours extra, not 24. Then no option to buy? The only character I’m missing, 11/12 boxes opened. Now another event? None of my special/hard to get characters do anything? They should be giving more than the basics. Not feeling they are “premium” characters, or wise investments.

      1. No, it was extended by at least one day. Vampires are still in the game right now, but a fifth toy is coming down the pipe at some point today.

    1. Ha i know what you mean :/
      I heard it was a 92% chance, and 12 chances out of 13, I opened all other 12 Boxes and didn’t get the bloody character, the time spent and i even used a few clams for this, for nothing but useless stuff.

      Very angry right now and even sent a complaint because of it because it was just ridiculous how the mechanic worked.

      hope to get a reply soon

      1. Did you get him yet with the 5th day chances?
        Our initial analysis of the 13 prizes figured in a prize of 20 clams, which you can clearly see in the picture above WAS listed in the initial prize list for this. Very early on they removed the clams, leaving JUST 12 POSSIBLE PRIZES in the box, and these prizes did not duplicate. You could even check how many prizes you still had left, and do the math as to how many boxes you had opened. If you opened the 12 possible boxes (as many players did) over the first four days, you would have won Human Rupert! Lots of players actually got him with their 12th & final box.
        Hopefully you ended up getting him today, as no new prizes were added to the box. Let us know!

    2. I’m right there with you. 10 boxes and no Rupert. And what makes me the most mad (even after all the time and clams wasted) is once I opened my 3rd box yesterday I put my characters back on long tasks, then I see the announcement about another toy on Wednesday. So I use MORE clams to rush them out and get back to toys and this morning there is no new toy, only the vampire I’ve already maxed out.

      So completely frustrated with this game!! Did anyone get a new toy today?

  2. Last post was unclear (shouldn’t write posts before bed). All 4 characters were doing the task to get the toy, before 10pm pdt. Time passes, check on game after 4 hours to claim toys (wanted to get an early start on the day) and wham – all 4 characters are walking around doing nothing. Reset cleared those characters tasks. Not sure if anyone else had the same problem. This is a really long thread.

    1. Thanks for clarifying! We haven’t heard of many issues like that from others. It probably won’t help for this event, but you really should message this to TinyCo via the in-game Help & Support menu. They might be able to locate and quash a bug from future events. Best of luck in your box chances today!

  3. Twice now when the toy resets my 4 characters are doing nothing, I waited about an hour before the rest – new toy, all 4 characters aimlessly walking around. Now I’ve only managed to open the box 4 times & lost my toys I collected by the reset.

    Prizes- Herbert’s ice cream truck & dansu shop (both of which I have), Stewie Flowers & ale truck. All I wanted was the lobster shack and Rupert. Hhmmm looks like that ain’t going to happen unless the two times I can open the box I’m super lucky (fingers crossed).

    Tiny co. needs to recalculate their maths – some of us work and sleep. Like the concept but bad timing. I was happily collecting all the things to unlock 2 costumes & 2 characters. In a few week when I’m bored that I still don’t have Stewie I would have loved this event.

    1. LOTS of us work and sleep! I agree that the timing of this event is suspect, being that we were just given easily a month worth of new stuff with the District 8 stuff, just a week ago. Good luck in your chances today! Let us know what you get!

  6. If only tinyco knew how to hit the reset button :’)
    It’s 07:17 in Holland, still no reset.. It’s past 10 pm pdt according to the internet, why won’t the prizes reset?

    Stupid tinyco, lame events, way too less time in between all of it and yet again a serious cashgrab. It’s undoable for people who actually still want to sleep and have stuff to do during the day to be able to win all of the prizes, it’s yet again really unfair.

    Stop giving us events where you actually have to stay up 24 hours a day, 12 is more than enough, people have LIVES tinyco, people NEED SLEEP!! -_-

    I thought they’d learn from their former mistakes and everyone complaining it’s undoable.. And it awfully sucks that they hardly release any free stuff during events, way too much clamstuff. I’m not buying any clams, I hate having to spend money on virtual stuff.

    1. it’s confirmed: there will be a new toy tonight and you will have 3 more chances to get him. Since there’s only 12 prizes in the box, if you open all 12, YOU WILL GET HIM. I completely understand being frustrated at 0-9 on the box, but TinyCo did redeem themselves by guaranteeing that players who open all 12 boxes will get all the prizes.

  9. I find this event really annoying, as I either have to wake up early or stay up really late in order to get all toys. I’ve only managed to open 2 boxes every day and all I got was a Koi Pond, Pawtucket Ale Truck (pretty cool), Herbert’s Ice Cream Truck and a duplicate Gold Digger Island. I won’t be able to open 3 boxes today anyway, because I had to work and had my characters 8 hours instead of 4 on the same job. The first day, the event appeared really late and I was able to open only one box. I predict I’m getting either the Big Bubbly Fountain or Dansu Dansu in the final box I open today, so let’s hope the event runs until half-way tomorrow.

      1. Well great, I got Spotlights. I can only open 2 boxes today again, and I really am hoping for Rupert and the Lobster Shanty, since I’ve needed that last seashell for Mermaid Peter for ages now, and the Lighthouse doesn’t seem to want to drop it.

      2. The spotlights are a good prize, but it’s no Lobster Shanty, and definitely no Rupert. Keep the faith! You have one more day to try! Thanks for reading/sharing.

  10. You mention that the system won’t allow duplicates but I have ‘won’ Gold Digger Island and I bought that previously as part of another update with Pirate Peter. At least if you’re right I won’t get even more duplicates within the update, unlike the last one when I won 3 wheelchair skateparks and duplicates of dry & garbage gardens that I had previously purchased.
    I came out of the King Butt update with 250k plus coins so no worries on that so far.
    Oh and while I have noticed that I am now half way through level 40 I don’t agree that they have remembered all of my XP earned since reaching 40. My levels froze on 40+ nothing and stayed that way for a long time. I was adding a level every few days previously.

  11. Ugh.
    Opened all 9 boxes so far over the past 3 days and still no Rupert :/
    I know we’ll probably be able to get him later on, but I wanted to get him from event.

    Like

  12. I’ve opened 3 boxes so far.
    1. Lobster shanty (worth 65 clams)
    2. Rupert (which completed my premium characters… and gave me 100 clams)
    3. Bubbly fountain

    I bought both premium items that drop toys, however after purchasing them I don’t believe they were worth the clams. But, if I hadn’t won Rupert so quickly I would want to have as many chances to open boxes as possible. So, I dunno… the premium drop purchases are 50/50 for me

    Like

    1. I feel the same way about the sandbox and topiary: not worth THAT many darn clams. I only bought the sandbox, and I also got Rupert on the second try. The only reason I’m still playing the game right now is to snag premium items like a Pirate Peter Car. Thanks for reading!

  13. Knowing my luck, I’ll never get Rupert. I seemed to have missed it yesterday, so I only got up to 14, and got a Peter Pirate Car then a Stewie Flower. I’ve actually started early today so I hopefully get all 24, I’m up to 6 and got Dansu Dansu (better than the other two for sure seeming now I’m not going to spend to buy it anyway). I’m just worried I won’t be getting Rupert! Especially seeming I’ve not had any luck with any of these special stuff (like the Pharoh thing and the 4th of July boxes)

    3. So I’ve got the Spotlights, Pirate Car, Bubbly Fountain, Dansu Building, Stewie Flower and Stewie Billboard. And with just one more chance today, I’m scared I won’t be getting Rupert. How many toys are there? 3 or 4? I mean, I’ve got 14 of the Giraffe’s (so 2 boxes) all 24 of the octopi (so all 3 boxes) and so far 16 Dinosaurs (so 2 boxes). Does that mean there is another toy to collect after the Dinosaurs? Or did I miss something? :L

      Like

  14. I am curious if anyone tried something. As you said, to get all 24 you would have to start like the very first second. My characters finished their 4 hour tasks with about an hour left before reset. I just let them walk around and waited until reset but what if you started BEFORE reset. Would they drop the new toy? Did anyone try it? They do the same exact 4 hour tasks so I wonder if they would just drop the new toy. That would help immensely.

    1. To answer my own question, I asked this question on Facebook too and someone said she went to check after the toys changed and the picture on her people switched over to octopus so it in fact works. You don’t have to wait until reset to start the jobs.

    1. Good question, my answer is: I don’t think so. The toys are reportedly different every day. If you don’t hit the 24 number by noon PST Sunday, the number will wipe away and you’ll start over at 0 of whatever tomorrow’s toy is. Make sure that when you hit the 6/14/24 levels, you open that box right away (it almost makes you do it).

    1. Hey, no problem! We appreciate the help. Here is how it all happened from what I know and what you’ve added:
      1) you got to 6 giraffes
      2) you opened the mystery box from the premium menu
      3) you won Rupert from the box first try (you lucky so & so)
      4) the box then disappeared from your premium menu
      5) a tanning salon then appeared for free in your building menu (& glitched so that you can place a bunch of them)
      Sound right? Because we’re sure the building does not appear until you have Rupert (apparently)

Though i would like to buy another mystery box. I haven’t noticed if they cost toy or not. ( I didn’tthink they do since I still have the same aamount of toys as I did before I got the mystery box.

    1. Ok, can you please take a minute and elaborate for us? So far, you are one of the first people to report getting Rupert, and none of our writers have him yet. And none of us have heard of/seen a tanning salon yet in the game.
      So, when you amass 6 toys, the mystery box appears in the Premium section of your purchase menu. Once you open the box, it disappears. This may explain that for you, but where are you seeing/buying/building tanning salons from? Inquiring minds want to know! Thanks

      1. I got the tanning salon in the building section I tapped the cart in the bottom right and I’m pretty sure it was the first building right there in the featured section it said ‘free’ so I clicked it. The first time Rupert didn’t apperar. So I ‘bought’ it again, with the same result. Then finally either the 3rd or 4th. Time I placed the salon, Rupert appeared.
        Note: i still received xp for placing the salons. 🙂 hope this is helpful.

  18. So my question is this: Rupert is in the group of characters that are buyable, but this event makes it possible to win him for free. So he should be able to buy some time after the event? And at what cost? Spending 325 clams for 75% chance to get him seems way too expensive for me. I bet he won’t cost more then that when he is released. Cause he will be released sooner or later right?

    Like

    1. Yep, those are valid points. Rupert does in fact show in the Characters You Buy section of facespace with the comment that “you need the Bear Back Tanning Salon” to unlock him.
      Literally everyone playing the game except TinyCo employees is in the dark right now about their plans on this. It does seem like they will release him to buy eventually, but if you can get him now relatively cheaply (I’m only buying the sandbox) why wouldn’t you try? Thanks for reading and for the insight! As soon as we know more, we’ll bring it to you first!

    1. It’s because of a formatting choice we have made to highlight either 3 or 6 of the most helpful current posts (currently we’re doing 6). It causes the new posts to pop up below them.

  20. Thanks for this post! I was confused thinking it was a bug because I had not unlocked Stewie yet.

    I agree completely with this being an ill-timed event. I have unocked Carter and that’s it. I am still excited everytime I open the app because I have so much going on! Heck, I am still rearranging buildings! Why not wait for a dry spell between major events or until more people would have made more progress?

    And what really grinds my gears is that all the characters needed for this are needed for other quests! I know this helps newer users, but why couldn’t some of the non-main characters be involved for those of us who have played so long?

    The prize boxes are good for me. I just can’t grasp why it has to be left to chance and over such a short time. I would consider myself an avid player and without spending clams, I calculate that I might not get Rupert. Not cool!

    The XP seems wrong for me, too. I asked support before the moon event and was at 40. How did I only get to 44 over so many weeks?

    Thanks again for a solid, helpful post!

    2. I terrible agree that this event was poorly timed! I’ve yet to unlock ANYTHING for Stewie and by the time anything comes to fruition off getting him this mini event will be long gone! If given A: more time to unlock Stewie or B: additional characters with shorter time to obtain things (20 hours for blueprints!).

      REALLY wish other special unlocked characters had more a helping hand in unlocking things (i.e. king butt)

      Quite frustrating!

      1. You just need to distinguish between “limited time” content like this Tea Party update, and “permanent” content like stewie and the two new costumes. They’re gonna be in the game FOREVER, whereas Rupert may be a one-time thing. You have the rest of your life to get stewie, so GO GET RUPERT! Thanks for reading.

    1. Yes! It’s worth it! Not being done with Asiantown has nothing to do with it.

    Good luck this weekend to those that want him. On a side note, I finally got a leather glove today. One more to finish up the New Peter costume.

  23. i personally think they should waited at least couple weeks after stewie is released. It would have give us a better chance of getting Rupert as our characters will not be trying stuff for Stewie.

    1. I agree, but it makes you draw the distinction between limited-time and permanent game quests. Forget about Stewie & the costumes for the next three days (with Bruce, Quag, Chris, & Peter–or whoever) and get the new free stuff!!! It did frustrate me that the length of time that most of the necessary characters would have been tied up in their current job is going to put some folks behind right away on this. With lots of Stewie-unlock tasks being 10, 12, or even 20 hrs, I still don’t even have Bruce or Quagmire helping on giraffes yet for like 4 more hours this morning.

  24. “Both items are way too small IMO for the enormous amount of clams they cost, but each does drop a toy every 4 hours (and the type of toy WILL change daily to help you throughout the whole event). I didn’t buy a topiary, but I did buy a SandBox (it also gives you $30 & 20XP every 4 hrs).”

    Topiary Stewie drops $20, 15XP, and a toy every 2 hours – not 4. So it is more expensive but drops toys twice as fast.

  25. Just logged onto my game and seen this update!
    Looks really good, but I hope we can all get Rupert without having to dish out loads of clams.

    The first few toys I collected from jobs didn’t count towards the meter though :/ So I’m 2 toys behind now which is annoying.

    1. 😦 that’s not cool. I would let TinyCo know about that via the in-game Help & Support menu. Send them a message, because if other folks are reporting the same issue they will normally help you make it right. Good luck!

  26. I have both the topiary and sandbox from beta version – I can’t place them as the game crashes, neither can I buy them again because theyre in my inventory; if I try, the game crashes… :@

    1. Decided to rush it with clams… Now, when opening the 2nd tea party mystery box I get a reponse error saying ‘child name buttons not found’ then crashes again 😦 Think I’ll wait until he can be bought as I have already bought all the ‘prizes’ previously… very disappointing – no wonder some people hack their games 😦

    2. Oh man, I’ve got nothin for ya on this other than to tell you to send TinyCo a message via the in-game Help & Support menu and see what they say. None of our staff was part of the Beta, so we can’t recreate the same issue. Good luck & don’t get frustrated! #betaproblems

      1. its a common problem apparently. Only problem is if I email Tiny today, going from past experience a number of times, they won’t reply until Monday!! Oh well…

  27. I think they should just leave us alone to work on getting Stewie etc. I feel like they will overwhelm us now and then later there will be a drought like there was for so long and we get stuck just twiddling our thumbs again. Sure keep it up if they can continue giving us interesting things to do but I say they are burning the candle at both ends right now. Also, I hate events starting on Saturday in the afternoon. Make it more time zone dependant. I’ve come to accept the fact most of these limited time character unlocks are unreachable anyway, but moreso since I’m not around or available during the “weekend” ones. Let’s see what happens.

    1. Yep, they haven’t quite figured out that folks play this game worldwide. Good point about the candle burning at both ends! I’m also glad to know that’s not just an American metaphor. I say “keep giving us new stuff! We’ll take all of it we can get!”. Miss ya Kwenz. Thanks for reading!

  28. So even if I drop clams to get enough toys eqch day, i still have a chance of NOT unlocking Rupert? Hardly seems fair..

    1. The way it’s been presented to us tonight, that does seem to be the case. ALTHOUGH, if you do the math, you can hit that 24 item mark without spending clams (although you’re not allowed to sleep much to pull that off). Just do all you can do & I bet we’ll all end up with him!

      1. Yeah but you can only sleep for a couple hours at a time in between tasks!! Thats if all your characters are in sync; also you would have had to initiate their tasks in the 1st minute of the update to get the max number of toys and boxes… Also your timings would have to be perfect to the second… Only 4 characters can acquire toys by doing 4hr jobs. This means they can each do 6 per day.- 4characters x 6toys = 24toys… Crazy – its Tiny Co who need to do the math!!!

      2. At least this first day, you have well more than 24 hours to reach your 24 toys, depending on when you first saw the update. For me it was about 14 hours BEFORE noon today, meaning that I actually have 38 hours to get my first 24. Plus, for the final day, it doesn’t specify that it will end at noon Tuesday, so you may have upwards of 30 hours to get your final 24 as a freemium player. It’s DO-ABLE!
