Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
We’re nearing the end of the second week of the Clash of Clones event, and by now everyone should have unlocked (at least) the first Personal Prize! If you need some guidance on the personal prizes, and how fast you should be earning Gold..check out Bunny’s Gold Calendar here.
Once you reach 200 Gold collected you’ll unlock the 1st free personal prize(s) in the Clash of Clones Event…Homer Barbarian and Barbarian Homer! (a two for 1 deal!) These are new skins for Homer and the Barbarian and each new skin comes with a whole new set of tasks!
Let’s take a closer look at Homer Barbarian and Barbarian Homer and just what happens when they enter YOUR Springfield…
WARNING…Dialogue and task spoilers below
At 200 Gold Emblems Barbarian Homer & Homer Barbarian will automatically be awarded to you. Once you’ve hit the unlock number you’ll see this message popup:
However, you won’t FULLY unlock them (ie be able to use them in your town) until you’ve reached part 8 of Prince and the Premise questline.
If you’re not currently at that part in the questline they’ll automatically be placed in your inventory (and locked) until you reach that part.
Otherwise, Homer and the Barbarian will automatically switch places and become Barbarian Homer and Homer Barbarian:
They’re both part of the Clash of Clones Character Collection Sets:
The premise behind the skins is that the Barbarian wishes he had Homer’s life and Homer wishes he had the Barbarian’s life…so they decide to switch places (since they look so much alike). Here’s a little more of the dialogue:
From Pt. 7 of Prince and the Premise
Barbarian: Can me tell you something?
Homer: Anything, Pal.
Barbarian: Me am jealous — of you!
Barbarian: Me tried of kill kill kill, pillage pillage pillage, grunt grunt grunt. Sometimes, me just want put feet by fire and drink from skill of enemy with someone me love. Me want do Sunday crossword puzzle in bed then go to brunch, not slaughter castle full of archers and wizards.
Homer: See, I would love to bathe in wizard blood.
Barbarian: Me would love stay home watch “The Bachelor” eating low calorie popcorn.
Homer: I guess each of us would love to have the other guy’s life.
Barbarian: Yes, that am situation.
Moe: Hey guys, did you know that when the Barbarian here takes off his helmet, he looks just like Homer.
Homer: OMG — Oh my God! It’s true!
Barbarian: OMC — Oh my Crom! Us am twins!
Moe: You guys should switch places and live each other’s lives, just like that classic piece of literature: “Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties”.
Barbarian: Switch places? That sounds hacky.
Homer: No, no it’s cool The same happened to Bart in one of the episodes of the TV show this whole thing is based on.
Barbarian: Us game not based on TV show. Am original IP.
Moe: Must be nice.
Homer: So it’s agreed. I’ll live the life of a Barbarian, and you’ll live the life of a family man!
Barbarian: Me still think this am hacky, but am worth it.
So now that you know WHY they switch places. Let’s take a look at what happens when they do…
