Question & Answers
Bamboo quest stuck!
Im on the collect 5 bamboo tubes quest and I just have 1 more to collect but however many trees I cut down or enimies I kill I can't get the last one. Anyone have any ideas?
Answer from: Dizz
I'm having the same problem, wondering if it's a glitch? Starting to hold back my game now as need the bathhouse to progress
Answer from: Bamboo
I'm having the same problem only I have 2 more left to find, need to build the bathhouse but I can't! Someone please help
Answer from: Bamboo
I found a way, forget finding the bamboo, buy it with gems instead! best way, is to use the daily bonuses and cheat the system. On the fifth consecutive daily bonus, you get 3 bonus crystals, and then the daily bonuses will start back from the beginning. Therefore every 5 days of logging on you get a bonus. Here's where cheating the system comes in. Open the app, then go to your phone's settings and set the date + time ahead by exactly one day. Go back to the game and get the bonus, then set your phone ahead by another day, then repeat as many times as you possibly can and every 5 "says" you'll get the 3 gems. Do this for one "year" and you'll earn 219 gems!
hope this helps :')

Lol, i did what he said, like changing de time, and when i was ready to buy it with the gems I had, since I had lots of space, i had alot of trees to cut, i gave it 1 more shoot to find my last bamboo, AND I GOT IT!! no need to spend my gems hehehe
Answer from: Love the Tribez
DO NOT BUY THEM WITH CRYSTALS. I had that same problem with you, just wait a few days and trees will grow back and occasionally Murlods will come. Just be patient, and the last piece of bamboo surprises you.
Answer from: Strum
This seems to be a problem with all the "find x number of item" quests. The game seems to be forcing you to spend crystals. Every time i needed to find pick axes, bamboo, thurmas, portholes, whatever.. i would fine most of them withing a day or two.. then i would spend almost a week trying to find that last one or two. Considering how this is happening with all the items, I wouldn't be surprised if it was by design.
Answer from: Ziggy
I agree with the previous post, the find x number of item quests gets worse as you progress thru the game. I am on lvl42 now and have 4 islands but some have these quests and it is taking weeks of logging in daily and searching. Searched for some items well over 100 times and always the last one needed does not show up. On mystery shore the starfish in the bath houses to enable the hotel build, and also the mutaplasm on the UFO have been going on over a month! Heard lots of complaints about this issue -seems to be a ploy to get you to buy crystals/gems.
Answer from: Wally
I agree with Ziggy. I'm also stuck on the last Mutaplasm. I think it's a cynical ploy to get you to spend money.
Answer from: Charlie
Ive been trying for 4 days for bamboo pieces... i still need 2 :( and no matter how many trees i cut down or murlods i attack i cant get it.... phooey
Answer from: Grandma
The game no longer allows a player to change settings in order to increase gems. When I tried it today, I got a message telling me I was playing unfairly.
Answer from: Mel
Do you get bamboo by tapping on Murlods, letting the dino take them out, or by dismantling their hut?
