Back to School 2017

Back to School 2017

The Back to School 2017 Event has started just in time for us all to be busy with school. We need to get our kids off or ourselves to school so our personal schedules are packed full.

The Back to School 2017 event is only 14 days long and we need to charge collections 20 times each for the big reward from the event quest on the right side of our manor.

Here’s a play suggestion. You will have to banish some roamers and they take weapons. The weapons will drop from the rooms but they will drop more frequently while you have the quest to banish them. So, take a little time before you banish those roamers for the quest to earn some more weapons for extras. Those roamers give collection items for ones you will need to charge.

I did not complete the quest string in 2016 so my Back to School quests began where I left off in the 2016 Quest String. It looks like if you completed it last year or did not do it you just start at number 1.

Back to School 2017 Roamers

  • Schoolboy Hansel – 3 Pencil Case
  • Schoolgirl Gretel – 4 Box of Chalk
  • Knowledge Leech – 2 Omniscient Trident and 30 Energy

Apryll

Have a quest to find a six-sided dice in the crypt as part of the back to school event. Searched for an hour. Nothing! Anyone else having a problem?

    MM_Admin

    Does it show as findable? Is it something that can be gifted? I don’t see a quest on my list for the 6-sided dice. I see quest 20 and reading through comments they were difficult to find.

    April

    Quest has the school bell. Titled”In All Likelihood” . Find six sided dice and king’s of the deck. To find, explore crypt in night mode and citadel in silhouettes. Found the deck after many tries. The dice are just not happening

      April

      Appears to be #20. Upon searching the comments, I found others having the same problem.

Ms Ally

Has anyone been stung by hitting the gift reset for 10 diamonds in error with clumsy fingers on their iPad? I have done it about 5 times. that’s 50 diamonds 🤬. There should be a check added to ask if that is what you really want to do!! Is that something you can ask the programmers for?

    April

    Hapipened to me a few times. Do what I did..go back and gift your friends again!

Detective V

Just out of interest, has anyone who has done this event for the first time got anywhere near 20 of each collections?
I haven’t, the most I have is 5 of 1 collection, less of rest. A lot of the time, even with turtle, all I get is chargers, not collection items.
Maybe in 2021 I will get there 🤔 😂

Marilyn Rodger

In quest A gallery of fine minds where will I find Aristotle on first floor in silhouette mode I’ve looked and looked but he won’t drop

    MM_Admin

    Does he show on the findable items when you search. Put him on your wish list or find a friend to bounce him with.

    🐸frogger

    Earlier in this thread, people mention the African room.

    Sharon

    Aristotle is in the African room.

Q3honeybadger

For#10, I found the pins in the kitchen and the library

Suzyq

I do not have the roamers. I’m wondering if I ever started this quest. I wonder if there’s a way to tell if I started, some of the 1st few quests look familiar, but I guess I didn’t make it very far. I’ll try some Friends manors.
I have no col items for the perfect penmanship collection.

PegWalt

How do you get Pumpkinhead Bikers for quest 31?

    🐸frogger

    Open the quest, click “show”. He is in the basement.

Catiburon

I finished the quest string this year, but no icon saying to charge the collections 20 times and receive gifts appeared on the right side of my screen. Maybe that only gets offered if you complete the string in one go? Likewise no offer for a chest with hard to find items…

    MM_Admin

    Did you complete it last year? I feel like you should still get the right side quests. Open a ticket with GI and see what they say! It’s worth a try.

      Catiburon

      Will do. I didn’t charge the collections 20 times last year & didn’t complete the quest string…

Detective V

I am on step 16 but no blasters!
Have only got 2 since the event started and searched hundreds of rooms but litmus did not drop.
Any advice on getting blasters, I.e. Rooms to search, much appreciated

    MM_Admin

    I think I get all my blasters from searching rooms. They can be bought for 💎. But I feel like there is a chest that has them so see if you have any random chests in your inventory.

      Detective V

      Thank you for replying, just searched another 130 rooms and none 😰
      Will keep trying 😀

        MM_Admin

        Wow! 😰 I just looked through all the chests you can buy in the shop or Guild Shop and no sign of blasters except 10 for 160 💎. That’s highway robbery!

          Detective V

          Thank you for checking 👍
          I ended up buying them 😰
          As soon as I got the litmus blasters started dropping more frequently!!

Mog

the roamers appear once you get the quest to banish them. they are in my manor – Mog – 6b6403 🙂

    MM_Admin

    Thanks! I’ll come by to banish. I can’t get past the quest for the dice. I am amazed that I have been stuck on it for 2 years. 10 times just to get night mode to search and then no dice! I did put in a ticket and tell them this frustration makes people quit because then the game is no fun. If I do get past it I hope the rest are easier. I don’t expect it to fall the first time but not 1,000 keys later!

      Sharon

      I’m having the same problem with the dice. Searched night mode at least 15 times. Wonder if there’s a problem with the game?

        April

        Having the exact same issue. Getting fed up and am tempted to abandon the entire event. Did you ever find the dice?

    PegWalt

    Quest 8 First Impressions brings out Hansel & Gretel. I had to visit a friend and come back home in order to see them.

Suzyq

I do not have schoolboy Hansel or gretel to banish anywhere. Am I supposed to do something to activate this quest? Very strange quest, different from precious ones…no icon.

    MM_Admin

    I have found the Roamers for this event when visiting friends though not very many. The quest string does have an icon. I’ve got it pictured at the quest tire.

    Are you saying you don’t have thevquestvstring or the quest on the right in the box with others?

      Suzyq

      I have the icon for the quest string, but I just don’t see any evidence of the quest itself. Like the things to banish. But it’s ok, I just won’t play that one.

Jeanne

Just a FYI….several items that said you had to be in certain rooms to get, dropped from totally different places. Like # 13&14….I found in a totally different room.

Dor

Used over 2000 keys in the ice citadel, item (cards not dropped). Put in a ticket days ago…still waiting for response. This is too much to explore a room over 50 times and not find item!

mmadmin

Thank you everyone. If your comment has disappeared it’s because I have put it into the quest string to keep others from asking the same question.

Raquel

Can you find leeches or princesses in friends yards? Where? How do you get knowledge must prevail ?

    Raquel

    And I am debating whether to give up. Less than 7 days, and stuck on ice citadel. Explored 42 times and nada. Ran out of keys. Argh. Read posts below. Do I have enough time if I buy keys to finish the other quests?

      Rose

      You could just request this from friends. Also if you use the Time Control artifact these books drop in any room.

    Rose

    Yes they will be in friends manors on the first floor but only after you have the quest to banish them. The knowledge must prevail will show on the right after you do this quest also. It is #34 above.

lilwon735

#21. Searching for Orpheus’ Lyre in Zodiac mode, I found it in the Fortune Telling Room.

PegWalt

In 19, what creatures count? I can’t seem to find the right ones.

    Rikk

    All creatures count I just did this one yesterday, first floor basement yard and space. Just make sure you do them in you’re OWN manor or it won’t count.

    Rose

    Any one should be counting. You may need to send G! a support ticket.
    ~Rose

    PegWalt

    Well, I finally figured this out! You MUST banish them in your OWN manor & NOT friends! All creatures count!

BigPerch

Thank you for, the words of encouragement and suggestions. Just got the dice, now for the cards (step 20).

Big Perch

I am having an extremely difficult time completing quest #20. I am running a turtle & an artifact and have searched both the crypt & ice citadel with my whole inventory of respective keys, plus purchased keys. I am so frustrated, I may just have to give up.

    Aparrent

    I had to buy 3 chests with bone goblets before I found it, Very painful!

    Divediva

    I only found them after my artifact timed out and I only had the turtle. I also tried after every 30 mins to explore 5x in 1st floor room before going back and continuing search. It helped me in the past and I was desperate. It still took me almost 2,000 keys in crypt and almost 3,000 keys in ice citadel. You can’t put them on WL and you can’t buy items so you just need to grin and bear it. good luck?

    Mml

    For those in need of icy roses, coll 284 (warm drinks) yield 100 roses per charge & each item in the collection is coin-purchasable

    BigPerch

    Well, I.must have learned something since last year. This year I only ran a turtle and received the dice and cards with some effort, but not nearly as frustrating as last year. Good luck!

      MM_Admin

      OK, I’m going to go try again!

      MM_Admin

      It took me 40 searches to get those dice. Sure glad I got the cards last year!

Kim Shackett

Missing Hansel and Gretel to banish. Had them on day 1 of new event, no sign of them since. Any ideas? Filed a ticket with GI, but no resolution yet. Of course.

    Kdaggs

    You can find Hansel and Gretel at your friends manners.

    Divediva

    If you banish them, they disappear. Just banish other creatures till they show up. Or easier option for me is visit friends that have them and banish there.

Jennifer

I had Confucious in kitchen, Galileo in Living room and Aristotle in African room

Sherry

On #17 “A Gallery of Fine Minds” Aristotle was found in the African Room, Confucius was found in Room 51 and I’m still working on and I’m still working on Galileo.

Christine Alethia

Aristotle is in the African room.

Jeanne

Good grief! I’m such a goober! After exploring probably 100+ rooms looking for the trio in #17, I realized I could just go to my collection and send it to someone and have them send it back! ? I forget that sometimes.

Jo Cookie Monster

When does knowledge must prevail appear. I have Live, learn evolve right now , but that is all?

    mmadmin

    I’m pretty sure when you get to quest 34 when you banish the roamers for it.

Cazz

Found Galileo in fortune telling room

    Mml

    Not in oceanic room either

Gigi

Confucius is in the Sakura Room. Nothing in lab, or room 51. Haven’t found any others yet.

    Jeanne

    I found Galeleo in the Elevator…..just FYI

    Gigi

    Aristotle in African room.
    Galileo in fortune telling room.
    Confucius in Sakura room.

Melissa

What floor can I find the back to school roamers on? I have yet to see them!

    Gigi

    They’re on the first floor. If you banish some other characters they will appear when you get that quest.

      PegWalt

      When I got the quest, I visited a friend and when I came back, they were both roaming in my manor.

Jeanne

Any ideas on finding the items for #17? I’ve done MANY rooms in silhouettes, and nothing yet. Like I’ve prb searched 25-30 times so far. Thoughts? ?

    Gigi

    Confucius in Sakura Room, Galileo in Fortune Telling room. No one in kitchen, oceanic room, lab or romm 51.

      Gigi

      Always check list of findable items. If you don’t see the item it means it’s not there.

      Gos244

      My Galileo was in the living room

    Rose

    Put them on your wish list. They are from elevator collection. Also you can just search the elevator and hope for drops

    Robin

    I got all of mine searching the elevator.
