Telenovela Weekend FAQS

UPDATE: The piñata feature no longer has a countdown to regenerate swings and Seamus’ “Sing Shanties” action is a new source of blindfolds. This 4-hour action is intended to replace the timer’s free swing, as they take the same amount of time.

Consuela will also drop cowboy hats. 😀 Additionally, tasks have been added for Connie and Tricia to drop for Plutonium.

Here are the FAQS for the new weekend update – Telenovela!

  1. The piñatas, I’m getting 1 every 2 hrs. I read it’s supposed to be 5 piñatas. What is everyone else experiencing? 5 or 1 every 2 hrs?


      1. If you’re close to 35 candies, it might be possible to get enough candies by tomorrow now that the requirement for the candy has decreased.



    1. You collect blindfolds and then you can smash a certain amount of piñata’s before the bat breaks (the bat fixes itself after 4hrs again)



  2. I contacted TinyCo concerning the timer & they wrote back saying that they removed the timer. Now Seamus ” Sing Shanties” will drop a blindfold one every 4 hours. Nice to know isn’t it? Hope this info can help other players.


  3. Hey Al, I noticed the same thing with the piñata bat timer not counting down. I’ve determined that the timer is only counting down while I’m logged into the game. Once I exit the game the timer pauses until I log back in. I just emailed Tiny Co. Hopefully they get it sorted out quickly.


  4. My countdown timer started at 4 hours, nothing special, but when I checked it after 2 hours, it reset to 4 hours. Waiting on a eye blind drop to see if that resets it.


    1. I noticed the same thing, last couple times I’ve gone into my game the timer reads 3hrs and 40something min. I sent an ingame msg to TC


      1. I’ve just done the same Logan (and also dropped in that I help run the FG tips site) so hopefully fast replies lol 😛



  5. Which characters have tasks to create blindfolds? Mort, Bruce, Peter, and Herbert are pictured, anyone else?

    @Victor: the pinatas are on the coin symbols above the building, hard to miss. They appear after New Mundo pt 1
