Grandpa Smurf


Grandpa Smurf was introduced to the smurfs village in Thanksgiving 2012 update where he was featured as the main character.  He  is only available in the mountains and can be found at level 25.  After a series of quests from Papa Smurf to make a hot air balloon and  fly to the mountains. He is not stationary and works similar to Papa Smurf on the mainland, that is he gives out quests and walks around the mountain village. Whenever he has  quest for you, a yellow exclamation mark will pop up over his head, if you tap him, he will tell you what to do in the mountains. His quests are similar to papa Smurfs ones so whenever you complete them you earn XP. 

Grandpa Smurfs Hut is also available in the mountains to build. It costs 30 Smurfberries and gives XP rewards for all the gems that have been placed in the mountains. The gems are available as rewards from digging in the mountains, for more information please read the article about the mountains article.

    i love smurf village game but i have 1 question and 1 suggestion for u all. Qns 1: exactly which part of the mountain can i find pyrite for grandpa smurf? a few quest from grandpa smurf then there comes a digging quest then few quest again them digging :( please stop the digging quest alright? mountain is very big and is like asking us to find a needle in a haystack. i ask u to find a gold bar in the middle of the vast ocean will you go and find it? no you won’t. is there a way to skip such digging quest from grandpa smurf? it’s annoying and irritating. 1 suggestion for the game: can at least introduce a way or an option to save the game data and progress such that whenever a user used a new phone or factory reset one’s phone due to internal problems caused by the phone that he/she doesn’t needs to everytime to restart a new game and can resume from where they last stopped at? i spent almost 5 years playing smurf village on my ipod touch but all goes down the drain cause its spoilt :(


    • Marina_Smurf says:

      Answer 1: You can find Pyrite on every part of the mountain. The more Smurf you send digging, the higher is your chance to find it. There is no special spot where you have to look. I'm sorry, but you cannot skip his quests. Maybe you want to invest some SBs and upgrade your huts on the mountain. Gets you more Smurfs for digging and finding resources and crystals.
      Answer 2: I'm not the "save game data" expert, but you can make a backup of your village, using iTunes on your computer.

    I only have space available currently for 4 stairs…. But Grandpa Smurf still wants me to build more stairs…

  3. Jessie says:

    Hi, I’m probably overlooking the answer to this question, but is there a limit on how much xp you get from the crystals? Thanks

    • Marina_Smurf says:

      I hope somebody has the right answer for you. I get over 100.000 XP from the big crystal and 31 XP from each crystal on the mountain. But I have the upgraded Backhoe and Smurfette and the XP-Machine and have no idea what the original XP was.

  4. Rui says:

    Papa smurf in montain : DIG UP Crystal Quartz. I left Cruystal quartz aroundhere somewere…it reminds me of trip to Australia. When I want to work for the smurfs nothing appears to dig.

    • Marina_Smurf says:

      This bug should be fixed with the next update. Do you have "Feathers"? It was said that tapping Feathers and return to the mountain would fix the digging bug. It is caused by one of Grandpa's tasks.

  5. Pt109 says:

    I am not receiving xp for my stored crystals after purchasing grandpa smurfs hut. Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions?

    • Poet says:

      You may wish to report this to Beeline directly.

    • fredziaa says:

      Same here. Spent 30 smurfberries and receive 20xp every 24 hours. Worst deal I've ever done on this game.

      • Handy Smurf says:

        Are you shure it does not work? The XP do not appear over grandpa's hut, but over the storage crystal or directly at the crystals place. I get a large amount of XP – and I think you can collect it every 12 hours. If it does not work I would suggest you contact Beeline support.

  6. wrathchild says:

    hi all, can you help me with a question?
    Only the crystals that I get from digs give XP or will I get also from the Colored Crystal formations that I can buy from the menu–>garden subcategory?

  7. rashed says:

    this mountain is filled with gorgeous amethyst you just have to look in the right place

  8. tyn says:

    I've been planting 20 potatoes on papa smurfs quest but nothing happens. How can I grow sweet [potatoes??????

    • Stroumpfette says:

      You are planting the wrong crop. There is a crop called Sweet Potatoes that takes 5 hours to grow and costs 18 coins to plant. You need to scroll down in your crops list and make sure to grow the correct crop in order for you to get the xp.

  9. syllies says:

    Since last update on the mountain if I collect XP from gradpas house only a few crystals give XP not all of them as they use to do. Has anyone else noticed this?

  10. Shennelle says:

    Where do I dig to find grandpa's quill pen?

  11. jules says:

    hey one of grandpa smurfs quest says that I have to build the bridge to get higher but I already built it but he keep claiming that is not what should I do

    • Smurfette says:

      You have to build the stairs at the right side of the screen, you can now get it quite a few times, the last expansion is the one covered with snow, if you do not have that, build the stairs over the next cliff at the far right side.

  12. justAniGame says:

    Is there a limit to XP earned through crystals? do XP varry with crystal type? Why one should store crystal if it always earns XP?

    • Poet says:

      There is no limit for earning xp through crystals, but I believe there is a limit to how much crystals you can store. From what I know, they don't vary and the reason for storing is that it helps you save space, where space is quite limited on the mountains.

      • justAniGame says:

        This doesnt seems to be right, because when i earn XP few crystals do not earn me XP, as "XP" Sign does not show up above specific crystals… can someone educate me more over this XP earning with respect to crystals?

  13. Cláudia says:

    Help me!!! I can't find the jade and I'm on level 27 !! I dug like an hundred times already and nothing yet.. What can I do??

  14. Ana Paula says:

    ele esta me pedindo pra tocar no retrato a direita, mas eu toco e nada, o que seria isso? estou no nivel 28

    • Stroumpfette says:

      Translation: he is asking me to play right in the picture, but I play and nothing, what would that be? I'm on level 28

      Please provide the exact wording of the quest in English so we can help you.

  15. Ada says:

    When I wanna store the crystals in the crystal storage on the mountain, it mentioned that STORAGE IS FULL, your storage hut is currently full. However my friend can store much more crystals than me, how can I fix this problem? Thx~!

    • Stroumpfette says:

      If you have the other storage devices – critter storage, storage unit and the crystal storage unit, the maximum number of items you can store is shared among all three. In other words, if the total is 1,800 items (which I think it is), you can have 600 items in each of the three units, or you can store 1,800 crystals in the crystal storage and zero in the other two units. Your friend probably only has the crystal storage unit and hasn't stored any other items. It is not something that you can fix or change other than taking items out of your other storage units to make room for crystals in the crystal storage unit. It is a memory limitation across platforms.

  16. Flavia says:

    Grandpa smurf is asking me to look for his long John but I cannot find the option to dig it up. I'm on level 29. Please help!

    • Stroumpfette says:

      Purchase a shovel from Decorations/Garden for 200 coins. Each shovel is good for only one 30-minute dig and it takes multiple digs to find the items Grandpa seeks.

  17. Beth says:

    I have built two wooden staircases to the upper part of the mountain and Grandpa Smurf still asks me to build stairs to expand. The stair limit is two can someone please help me?

    • Smurfette says:

      You can build a total of six stairs, expanding the area three times, for each expansion Grandpa gives a quest, when your two wooden stairs have completed build another one at the right edge of the screen.

  18. lion396 says:

    I am not getting the 30Xp for every gem when I tap grandpa smurf hut on the mountain. I only get credit for about 1/3 of the gems. I do get full credit for the gems in storage. Anyone else having this problem?

    • Smurfette says:

      In the past there were issues with the game crashing when there were to many gems on the ground during the XP collecting process, you are not the first one to say that you do not get XP for all the gems anymore, we think Beeline added a max. for the number of gems that are not stored that can give out xp to fix the crashing. But to confirm this, please open a ticket with Beeline, they can tell you if this really is intentional or not.

  19. gary says:

    What Grandpa Hut do? Will I get more xp if more gems are placed in the mountain?

  20. BCJack says:

    I have dug over 200 holes looking for pyrites and no luck. Virtually wiped out my coins. Am I doing something wrong or digging in wrong place? Quest is "These are Forever The mountain is filled with georgeous Pyrite. You just have to look in the right place" Is pyrite the yellow or golden crystals I have dug in past? Are there specific places on mountain that you find the different crystals asked for? Thanks for all you do.

    • Poet says:

      I am afraid you are facing a case of extreme bad luck. Sadly, the only advice is to keep digging. There's no other way. You just haven't dug up the right crystal.

      • Bcjack says:

        Ty…have to wait until I generate enough coins….am at level 37 and this is sure great time consumer for 73 year old.
