Hey Howdy Hey My Elfish Tappers!
Well….unless you’ve been caught in a major snowstorm you know that Christmas has arrived in Springfield! A light snow is falling & Santa has arrived in town! By now we’re all busy sending those elves and residents to the workshop to make presents!
With this event EA is repeating a similar prize structure to what they did for Halloween, only more prizes, and releasing the event (and prizes) in stages. For the first phase, which lasts until Christmas Eve (12/24), you can win 8 prizes by collecting Presents. The second prize awarded at 1200 Presents is Frosty the Hitman.
Let’s take a closer look at this chilly details of this killer snowman & just what happens when he enters your Springfield…
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Ahead
Once you’ve collected 1200 Presents Frosty the Hitman will automatically be awarded to you and you’ll see this popup:
Much like Friendship Prizes, if you’re visiting a neighbor when you hit the 1200 Presents mark this message will still popup and Frosty will be waiting for you in your inventory once you get back to your Springfield.
Frosty the Hitman will be placed in your inventory, so you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it. Just tap on the “use” icon to place it in your Springfield:
Frosty is a character, and although he’s an NPC you will still get a character message that pops up for him:
And he’s part of the Winter 2014 Character Collection Set:
After you’ve placed him some dialogue will appear & a very short task (involving YOU not Frosty). Here’s the full rundown:
