THOH XXVII 2016 Calendar: Act One

Hey there Alien Overlords!!

Boys and girls of every age
Wouldn’t you like to see something strange
Come with us and you will see,
This our town of Halloween


I so do love this time of year! The Ghosts, Goblins, Spooks, Zombies and downright naughtiness to it all. Oh… I guess you didn’t come here to listen to me go on about my obsession, right? Fine fine fine fine…



A few quick FYI’s



As per usual, I will be starting the Calendar one day AFTER the Act releases so you can factor in time you will need to send Characters on tasks, get Buildings, and fully launch the New Act. I will also be stopping it the night BEFORE the Act ends, as it will give you enough time to focus on all the other last minute stuff.



Now you have a basic daily breakdown for 13 days based off of approximately 3408 ico_cur_thoh2016_filmstrip_lgFilm Strips a day.

Again, do not panic. Remember that it is slow going at first so you may “appear” and feel like you are behind, but as you progress through the Questlines and Event you will start to see that you are getting more and more and more each day. Just go at a pace that fits you, but remember the more you play the more you will get. These are totals you want to reach by the end of each day if possible.



Here’s the rundown of the prizes available during Act One that you can win by just playing the game and collecting ico_cur_thoh2016_filmstrip_lgFilm Strips.

  1. I just came back to the game and started this event a little late. I just got the bell tower today. Haha guess I won’t be getting the whole line-up of prizes.

    • Well…as a player (not a mod) I have to say, you aren’t missing a lot. The best stuff is coming in the next act IMHO.

      • I’m just hoping to be able to get to Count Burns Castle. I don’t care about the other two prizes all that much. I have no idea what the prizes are in the next act.

  2. I cannot wait for the space marshmallow….. Its too darn cute!!!

  3. Is anyone else having trouble making multiple people fight the giant monsters? I can’t get more than 1 person to fight.

    • Just make sure to select two fighters before tapping the Fight button. (Also, you have to have the purple and yellow monster that accommodates two fighters…the blue and yellow one only allows for one fighter.)

  4. Had to come back and make sure I am on track with the calendar. I earned the crypt yesterday and am on track to unlock burns castle either this evening or first thing in the morning. So far this event has been pretty good all glitches considered. I do have premium characters and items earning during this event so that has helped. I am not super excited about the space marshmallow though.

  5. Ive had two minor issues since the update, but I believe after reading some other peoples issues, there should be a small form of compensation for the delays.

  6. Ahh thank you for the help! Really appreciate it 😀. Looks like I’m not as quick as I thought… obviously I mean in the game Not personally lol 😂😂

  7. Can someone please tell me what to do with the Obols!! I’m missing something. Thank you

    • They’re used for crafting. Tap on the third icon down on the left in the event hub of tap on the Construction Yard itself.

  8. Film seems quite easy to get but Obols are another matter all together. Does anyone else find that they are gathering them VERY slowly?

  9. How many crafting consumables come in the small bundle I just unlocked it and am not sure I got it

  10. Ok please help me…. I might be being a tad stupid… lets be honest it’s happened before! 😝 But how do you get more than two monster fights? Can’t seem to get any more but know people who have six at once??

    • So, I think you need to keep the following characters open at all times: Apu, Cletus, Krusty, and Skinner. If you tap the main building that we were originally given (the one with the werewolf claw icon with a red star shape behind it) it seems to house the fighting sequences. The monsters are usually just waiting in your town to be fought. I usually choose a fighter, then I press “fight.” Then, I go to the top of the same fighting screen, where it usually identifies “monster battle 1 of 3” and so on. I am able to access my additional fighters by pressing the right yellow arrows that state “monster battle…” From there I choose my additional fighters. So far, I only have the four fighters: Krusty, Cletus, Apu, and Skinner. I have Crazy Cat Lady, but I don’t know if I am going to invest in her costume (FYI: I dumped my cash on the new Lard Lad last week). Homer fought in the beginning, but he hasn’t returned to the monster battles. This seems to be a rigorous and labor intensive update, so you have to keep on top of the four hour battles and the kids’ trick or treat tasks. I know this is of little help, but good luck to you.

      • Great overview. Thanks! You are correct. Having CCL only makes it possible to battle another at the same time if they are available. But, your logic and methods are spot on.

        • It was indeed a good overview — but I don’t think it directly answered the question. Sue: If you’re tapping diligently every four hours, then it’s quite possible that you’d only ever see two monsters at any given time: They spawn two at a time every four hours, and likewise, a monster battle takes four hours. (The game also caps out at ten monsters in your town at once.)

          As an amusing aside: if you click the redecorate button, you can move the monsters around… maybe wait for a couple more to spawn, and then put them all in one area for a good battle royale screenshot, for example. 🙂

          • That is the way it is supposed to work. And yet, wait times, clearing times, etc. are very confusing.

            2 every 4 hours is in the code. The bonus monsters are random.

  11. so,, another town square for 50 donuts that gives 2.25% cash & xp

  12. hey guys just want to know right now im 2 day behind what if i skip to get the town square ? and what happen after i get town square is it my film will increase or same like that atill have to get the film to get next price

  13. 2 days behind due to kindle update delay, just hit 3500, well behind, not happy as I like this event

  14. Sighh i am so far behind due to the andriod delays and glitches.. like 3000 behind..

  15. Once again, Bunny delivers an awesome Event Calendar (yay!) 🙂

    No thanks to EA’s snafu yesterday, I am a day late and 1,000 Film Strips behind (you feel my irritation EA? well you should!!) …. but if that’s an NPC as the final Act One Prize? I’m fine reaching the last batch of Small Obol Pack and waiting for Act Two (seriously another NPC? you’d think EA would learn by now!) 🙁

  16. Kindle updated!!! Yay 😀 looks really cool

    I know was only a day later but waiting felt like forever lol

  17. Thank you for the calendar Bunny! Awesome work as always! 🙂

  18. Still wish there were more actions/quests for characters to do to earn event currency. Seems like the newer events have fewer things to do whereas the older Halloween events you could use more characters. Now we have a bunch of characters (at least those long time players) with costume skins and nothing to contribute towards the event unless you’re willing to spend donuts.

    They should also break the main storyline quests into shorter quests, but more of them. Seems like a grind instead of a compelling story this year.

    Oh, and they made the camera viewscreen that neighbors leave, a little hard to see when a building’s rent hasn’t been collected…then again, it could just be my old eyeballs. 😉

  19. Let’s see, two monster fight rounds a day, if it works right and 4 monsters in a round. That’s 8 x 150. Only 1200 films a day. Looks like another buy it to enjoy it event.

  20. Thank you Bunny for our calendar!!

  21. Yay! Im late on the update but yay!!
