Jingle Bell Wreck – Kwik Tap Guide

Jingle Bell Wreck is the main quest of the Christmas/Winter 2014 event. Most of you are already well into this so most of this will be null for you but we’re here to help everyone at all levels and stages. Plus this will be the whole quest line and not just up to a certain point even though it will be released in two stages. If you haven’t already reached it, until December 23, the farthest you can go is to Jingle Bell Wreck Pt. 12. Part 13 will release after that. Here we go!

    1. No reward? There was no prize. Have you tried re-synching the game by visiting friends/KL? Hardclose app, shut off/restart device? Cleared cache? Delete/reinstall game(do not do this if you play anonymously- connect it to Origin before D/R)?
      Is Lisa free? She will prompt pt 15 involving Santa.
      Theres been many reports on done tasks that will not clear even after troubleshooting.

    1. Not sure. The end of SC was definite, not the end of a phase, so it was an App Store update to remove it. The end of presentcollecting will probably not be a store update to remove as the content is already on the servers waiting to be activated.

  8. I used to have 3 friends till yesterday and then i added a whole bunch of more and now i have 15..but i used to get 10FP and 2 presents for each action whereas now i only get half of it…is that supposed to happen? And what are the maximum number of friends you can have?

    Like

    1. FPs are done on a sliding scale
      Daily Actions
      1-30 á 10 = 300 FPs
      31-60 á 5 = 150 FPs
      61-90 á 4 = 120 FPs
      90-120 á 2 = 60 FPs
      121-300 á 1 = 180 FPs
      Total FPs a day from visiting neighbours, not including collecting handshakes in your own town = 810 FPs
      The timer will reset after 24h from your first Action.

      Theres no scale for presents and there seems to be no logic to the amounts actions give. You get 90-150 presents a day for actions, it varies day to day.

      The maximum number of neighbours is 100 (not sure of the Other Springfield is included or not)

  9. How do i earn more presents?? Without any use of donuts that is..

    1. Send all characters that are able to make toys to the Toy Workshop, every 4h
      Keep Santa busy, either getting drunk at Moes 8h or eating milk n cookies 4h
      Reset the elves in the Toy Workshop every 4h
      Visit friends, you get 90-150 presents a day from actions, dropping agents will give your neighbour presents as well when they catch them
      Catch agents in your town, one present per caught agent
      Collect from Holidaytrees 24h, present depot4h, and elf homes 10h
      Do the Tunneltasks within 24h of setting the first task so you get the 100 present bonus.
      Do the questline Jingle Bell Wreck, each part earns 100 presents when completed.

    1. Not tunnel 9, pt 9 of the Jingle Bell Wreck quest. Once you have completed pt 9 (Homer 60 min Homeland) You will only see the button in neighbours towns and only if there are actions to be done. No actions = no button and you have to wait for the timers to reset.

    1. I just posted about this in the last “What changed…?” post. With the recent in game update this quest was removed along with the Ice Palace that came with it. Either they’re rewriting it or delaying it for a later date. The fact that they kept the skin in the game tells me they’re not done with it.

    1. Yes, it is very common.
      First try re-syncing the game by visiting friends or go to Krustyland.
      This usually works.
      Hardclose app.
      Clear cache.
      Shut off and restart device.
      Next step is a chore so I hope you won’t need it.
      Delete/reinstall – do not do this if you play Anonymously, connect your game to Origin first.
      Still no access to the cave? Only one option left.
