Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well looks like we have a little update on our hands! EA has given us a 2014 Yard Sale. This contains items from TSTO that you might have missed out on and EA is giving you a chance to purchase. (for donuts of course)
This will kick off with some dialogue between Homer and Bart….
FYI…this update contains a never before released costume for Marge….so there is still something in here for long time players….
As always…info below the fold for those who don’t like spoilers 🙂
Bart: Not so fast, Dad. You only come into my room to punish me or steal something. And since I’m still breathing comfortably, empty your pockets.
Homer: I just have your practice snake. I’m “borrowing” it for this year’s yard sale. To sell.
Bart: You signed a contract last year that you weren’t going to steal my stuff and sell it for profit. It’s right here…
…where’d it go?
Homer: I might have stolen and sold it. But it was for a good reason! I had to buy a black outfit to make it easier to steal and sell your stuff. But I promise that you will have first dibs at the yard sale to buy back all your stuff. Unless someone makes me a better offer or any offer or a sandwich.
First up…the NEW stuff, well thing.
She’s been in the game files for A LONG time…but was never released. Long time TSTO players who have everything from Halloween 2012 (including Mayan Homer & Mayan God) can purchase her for 90 Donuts. She does come with a questline & a full set of tasks as well (we’ll get into it more in a bit).
If you don’t have any of the Halloween 2012 items (Mayan God, Mayan Homer etc) you can purchase the Mayan Package for 300 donuts. This package comes with Mayan Marge, Mayan Homer (another skin for Homer) and the Mayan God (a NPC Character) & Mayan Calendar.
Originally….Mayan Homer and the Mayan God were free if you completed/played Halloween 2012.
You may see a different cost in your game. It will vary on what you already own. Reader Tom Had just Mayan Homer & Marge Combo for 170 donuts.

So that’s in my friends….the 2014 TSTO Yard Sale. Personally…I think EA miss an opportunity to bring back items that a lot of Tappers REALLY want (like the Waterfall), but I do like that they’re bringing back old items…even if they do cost donuts.
