Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well it’s Thanksgiving Eve and did you really think EA would let Thanksgiving go by with out some kind of holiday tie in? This year it looks like we get not one but TWO holiday events. The first tomorrow, on Thanksgiving Day, and the second on Friday, Black Friday here in the US!
From what we can tell from the game files, it looks like FREE DONUTS will be the reward on Thanksgiving and on Friday it looks like Ole’ Gil will finally make his long awaited Duff Promotion appearance in the game!
Sorry for those of you hoping for a Gil donut deal (maybe soon?) looks like this is an offer the Duff Brewery, Springfield Sign and cash (will cost you 300 donuts). Here’s the promo info we could find in the game files:
Note: I play on both a Android phone (my A game) and an Android tablet (my B game). For my A game, on my phone, it started right up. However, on my B game, tablet, the quest didn’t auto start. I had to back out of the app and hard close it (close apps) and restart TSTO. So if you don’t see it auto start for you try hard closing and restarting the app.
Dialogue and mini walkthrough:
Happy Thanksgiving Pt. 2
Homer: Oh my God! We go three donuts just because of what day it was? I wonder if we could reset the clock on our device, then when the machine thinks it becomes today again, we’ll get another three donuts!
Lisa: Wouldn’t that be cheating?
Homer: No, cheating is when you press a bunch of buttons and get unlimited ammo. This is hacking!

Homer: I know, but I get confused when I have to go into the settings menu. What the hell is a DHCP? And how much is it costing me to lease it? The good news is I was able to reset the clock. Now the game will think it’s Thanksgiving again in 3…2….1…
After tapping Homer
Lisa: But Dad, that would be unethical. Besides, wouldn’t it ruin the fun of the game?
Homer: The fun of always having to wait 24hours? The fun of not being able to afford things? The fun of not being able to grow crops because my corn still needs 50 days? Screw fun — I’ll take the unlimited donuts. And more importantly, I can post a video of me doing it on the Internet and get like a zillion views! Finally people will realize I’m a genius at computering!

After tapping Lisa
Homer: I know. Move over “Puppy on a Piano” — there’s a new Most Watched Video in town! I’m an Internet Celebrity– and that never goes away!
Lisa: The only problem is, the popularity of your video is sure to attract the attention of EA.
Lisa: I bet they can put out a patch that fixes that problem pretty quickly.
Lisa: In fact, I bet they’re doing it right now.
Homer: AUGHHH!!! Where’s my myPad?! I’ve got to get my donuts!

Gil: Hey folks, Thanksgiving’s over! Which means it’s a salesman’s favorite of days…Black Friday.
Homer: Oh no, they fixed my hack. And even worse, Gil’s here. I hate this stupid game!
Lisa: There’s probably a lesson to be learned in here about cheating.
Homer: There sure is. If you do it, don’t post it online until you’ve fully exploited it for yourself.
Lisa: That’s not what I meant.
Homer: I wonder if I could have still selected “Reset the Clock” from my job list when my quests was “Post Hack on the Internet”?
