Stonecutters Event 2014: Complete Overview

As most of you will now know, our newest event is the stonecutters event. I love that EA has let us earn prizes once again and I like that all of the prizes come from ONE EPISODE! All in all this is a great event and I am here to tell you exactly how it works! I’m going to show you the ins and outs, the new game additions, the new currency, the new content and any other new additions that have been included!

If you don’t want to keep reading as you like the mystery and surprise of the stonecutters and their event than please stop here.

How the event works

First things first: you will need to build the Stonecutter lodge, this is where all the hype is. The lodge sort of acts like the Christmas Present Depot, it is the basis of your town, friends land there and even you land there upon entrance of the town. It also pays every seven days, the first building to do so.

Stonecutter Lodge

The unlock of the lodge means the unlock of Number 1, and man is he important, he basically runs the quest line, he brings the ways to earn our new currency and is the pivotal point of the update and you wouldn’t be able to get much done without him.

Number 1

One of his main purposes can be found in the top right of your screen. Each day he brings 4 unique tasks for you, the sky finger, to complete at his bidding. Each task earns emblems and the amount of emblems (more on this soon) earned increase by which amount you are up to (like I said, there are 4), in one day you can get a total of 1000.

They are random tasks and are in random orders for different players. For example he may request that a youngster buy an extra cold squishee in which you have to go into your town/the census/the character locator and find a character that suits the category (in this case: youngster). You then must enter their task list and find the new secret task to drink and extra cold squishee.

Tip: Only send one (for example) youngster on Number 1’s task, whilst more than one youngster can do it, you only get emblems for one of them.

Please be aware that these tasks do not show up in the task book and they aren’t yellow and at the top of the characters task list as they are secret. There are three ways to view them:

  1. By the button in the top right
  2. By finding the character/building yourself
  3. By using the town centre

That is all from me about Number 1 for the mean time, lets take a look at the currency for the event. This time around it isn’t gift cards, it isn’t goo, it wasn’t isn’t hearts!

It is Stone Cutter emblems!

These above emblems will be your key to one set of prizes (more on this soon), so make sure to collect them. You can also earn 60 emblems a day by visiting your friends towns. Basically these are used like snakes were back in whacking day, get a certain amount and you unlock a prize from the Emblem Prizes (or Personal Prizes).

Sacred Parchment:

The first prize that you will receive from the emblem prizes is the sacred parchment, the sacred parchment adds a whole new aspect of prize earning, again I won’t be going in detail but basically each day you receive a new mysterious quest, it won’t tell you what the quest is or who is needed to complete it, it won’t even tell you that you are correct when you send that person on the quest, you have to wait until they complete the quest to see if you are right. So far the quests have been:

Lisa – Play her Sax

Apu – Feed the octuplets

Krusty – Walk Mr Teeny

Although the clues are cryptic, if you ever need help feel free to ask and we’ll let you know.

As I mentioned there is a completely separate list of prizes for the sacred parchment, these can be seen below:

The Order:

Similar to snakes, rabbits and zombies, there is also a way to earn emblems in your towns that involves squishing things (we sure love squishing things). Every hour, one member of the Order (the order is the stonecutters arch enemy group) will spawn in your town. You can only have 6 order in your town at a time so make sure to collect them before the six hours is up so you can keep generating. Once you clear your town you get a message saying “Success! You have driven away the last of The Order. For now.”

There is a one stop shop for all of our posts in the menu at the top of this page called Stonecutters. As always, there are more posts to come!

  1. What happens if I can’t complete all of this by the time the event ends? Will I get an opportunity to finish or will I miss out on all the prizes?

    • My guess is that the mainquest (mostly involving Lisa and Bart) will continue and those quest for the costumes you’ve earned/bought will be allowed to finish but the prizes will be gone.

  4. I got enough emblems to get larry, carl, and Sampson. But the skins are not available to me. I even have the table now. When I try to open them they have no extra skin. I don’t know what else to do?

    • First, are they in your inventory? If so then you have to tap on the “Use” button to enable them. If not, check the character. While looking at their task list, there should be a “+” or “-” in the top right corner of their task list. Tap that and it should show the skin. You can then switch to it by swiping left or right.

  8. Brockman/Number 66 completed the Broadcast “Crackpot” Theories; however, his image shows under my tasks still. When selecting his image under tasks, it shows “Done!”. I’ve tried to store the news station which when replaced, Brockman has an exclamation as if he has a task to do yet nothing ‘yellow’ in his list. I’ve re-completed the “Crackpot” twice and can’t get this to clear. I recall my game crashing when clearing this completed task the first time and think it has something to do with it. Thoughts/Suggestions?

  9. I’m only getting 5 Emblems when I visit a friend’s Stonecutter HQ. All other buildings get me 1 each. Is that normal?
