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 fifth prize awarded at 5500 Presents is the Festive Light Plunger.
Let’s take a closer look at this plunger, and just what happens when you take the plunge in your Springfield!
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Ahead
Once you’ve collected 5500 Presents the Festive Light Plunger 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 5500 Presents mark this message will still popup and your Plunger will be waiting for you in your inventory once you get back to your Springfield.
The Light Plunger 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:
Before you even place it in town…some minor dialogue from Homer will popup. You will then be prompted with the task to place it and tap on it. Here’s the full rundown:
Taking the Plunge
Homer: When you see an unmarked plunger that could be connected to anything, my rule is “plunge it”.
Place the Festive Light Plunger
Plunge the Festive Light Plunger
Homer: This decorates everything for me in one plunge? I shall never break my ankle trying to put a light-up Rudolph on the roof again.
Completed Task Earns 100 Presents and 10XP
This is by far my favorite prize of this event so far. So many Tappers have been asking EA for a way to turn everything on at once…instead of tapping on each and every house to switch the lights on. And finally it’s here!
Now whenever you want to decorate your Springfield for Christmas…just tap the Plunger!
And when you want to take the decorations down…just tap it again!
So here’s the deal with the Plunger:
-A decoration for Springfield.
-Does not add any bonus %
-Turns all the Christmas Lights in Springfield On or Off with just the tap of it (houses only)
So that about covers all the details on this Festive Plunger!
What do YOU think of the Festive Light Plunger? Where have you placed it in your Springfield? Do you love having the ability to turn all the lights on with just the tap of the screen? Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!
