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 sixth prize awarded at 8,000 Presents is the First Ever Christmas Tree.
Let’s take a closer look at this first ever tree, and just what happens when you add this tree in your Springfield!
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Ahead
Once you’ve collected 8000 Presents the First Ever Christmas Tree 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 8000 Presents mark this message will still popup and your Tree will be waiting for you in your inventory once you get back to your Springfield.
The Christmas Tree 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 between Lisa and Hank Scorpio will popup. You will then be prompted with the task to place it and tap on it. Here’s the full rundown:
First Ever Christmas Tree
Lisa: Just look at all these junky Christmas decorations! Bland and tasteless, every last one! This year Springfield should try different Christmas decorations. Something more in the spirit of the original Christmas tree.
Hank Scorpio: The primitive Germanic warrior clans who gave us the Christmas tree often decorated with the heads of sacrificed enemies.
Lisa: You know, it’s very hard being an eight-year-old girl i this freemium game.
Place the First Ever Christmas Tree
Elf Ralph: YAY! I want to be a Christmas ornament too!
Completed Task Earns 100 Presents and 10XP
So here’s the deal with the Tree:
-A decoration for Springfield.
-Does not add any bonus %
-Basically a tree version of the Christmas Float.
So that about covers all the details on this Christmas Tree!
