Hey Howdy Hey Gift Grabbing Tappers!
By now you’re all in the thick of gift card collecting and you should have (at least) unlocked the first two Gift Card Prizes, the Egg Nog Bar & the Holiday Tree (Woohoo free prizes! Woohoo Egg Nog!). Let’s take a look at what happens once you unlock and place these two prizes in your Springfield!
First up at 250 gift cards collected….the Egg Nog Bar (now with more rum!)
Placing the Egg Nog Bar and going through the dialogue (no quest) between Homer, Moe & Krusty will earn you 20 Gift Cards & 10xp.
Once you’ve earned the Egg Nog bar (it’s automatically placed in your inventory) you’ll receive a task to place the Egg Nog Bar. Once placed Homer has a little dialogue with Moe, discussing how the un-watered down rum at the Egg Nog bar could kill Homer (since he’s a customer of Moe’s and has never had real booze before!).
Of course this dialogue is what leads into the explanation of why you earn Wheel Token’s at the Egg Nog Bar…because “you couldn’t pay (Homer) to drink that nog” they’ll give you a free wheel token every day!
Once you’ve set the bar in your Springfield the counter will start and every 24 hrs it will earn you 1 Wheel Token & 30xp. After the 24 hours are up you’ll see the token floating over the Egg Nog bar, once collected you’ll be taken to Krusty’s Holiday Wheel Game. For more on the Holiday Wheel check out Bunny’s post here.
“O HOLIDAY TREE, O HOLIDAY TREE, COME MARCH YOU’LL BE A FIRE HAZARD” (Homer singing once you place the tree)
Once you place the Holiday Tree in your Springfield a little mini dialogue kicks off between Homer & Lisa. Homer since the little song above & Lisa (s-m-r-t as always) reminds him to just get rid of the tree in January instead of March.
Once placed the timer on the tree starts. The holiday tree will earn you 75 Gift Cards & 45 XP every 24hrs! Not bad for a free item! (Note: you can also purchase the Holiday Tree for Donuts…it’s not unique so you can have as many as you’d like).
So Gift Grabbing Tappers there you have an overview of the first two personal prizes with the Holiday Event. Now, what we want to know is what you’ve done with yours!
