Santa Daily Tasks, Elf Tunnels Tunnels 16

Hey All You Merry Grumples! 😛

Here we are again with the Elf Tunnels aka Santa Daily Tasks.

Santa 1

If you want ALL the details for Santa’s Daily Tasks aka Elf Tunnels (including Character Groups), please go to the MAIN Santa Daily Tasks Post.

Now for today’s Santa Daily Task. Just tap on the Elf Tunnel itself to be taken to all available Tasks.


Or tap on the Santa Daily Tasks Shortcut Icon in the top right corner of your Springfield. Santa's Daily Tasks Icon

Santa's Daily Tasks

Remember, if you have a task “stuck” or can’t get the next Tunnel to open try to go to Krustyland/Neighbors and back. Or exit out of game then go back in again. (It won’t let you start the new task until the other one is complete, this means to make sure ALL the money and items are collected.)

If you are missing Elves, see post HERE. (Just try to go in n out of Krustyland then ring the Elf Bell first to see if the missing ones appear.)

Here is today’s Santa Tasks.

Tunnel Task Length Character/Group
16 Make a Dimwit Ride the Toy Conveyor Belt 6hrs (x5) Dimwit
Make Lisa Lobby Against Child Labor 6hrs Lisa
Make Lisa Make Snow Angels 6hrs Lisa
24 Hour Complete Bonus Prizes Options (The Game only picks ONE to give you)
100 Gifts Christmas Totem OR Sanjay House Christmas Decorations, 1 Elf Tapped_Out_Krusty_Themed_Totem_Pole_snow

Again, you have plenty of time for these tasks. The 24 hour timer starts as soon as you being the first task. You can still complete the tasks past the 24 hour time, but you will NOT get the bonus 100 Gifts. So I suggest plan ahead to hit the timer BEFORE 24 hrs if you need those Extra Bonus 100 Gifts Each day.

There you have it. A general idea of what to anticipate for the Elf Tunnel Santa Daily Tasks. Have YOU completed any yet? Get the Bonus? What do you think of it all so far? Like the gifts? Let us know below.

  1. Just saw a post somewhere that the Christmas totem comes with it’s own quest line. Having won it last year, didn’t get a chance to do the quest. Any way of finding out?

  2. I had no idea that the Christmas Totem prize gave a bonus percentage. None of the other previous prizes in this event so far gave a bonus. After winning it, I kept it tucked away in my storage for about a half day or more before placing it as I thought it was solely just a decoration. If I had known, I would had placed it right away.

  3. Question should I keep friends who disappear for weeks n how do I get Santa’s 24 hr task deliver presents

  4. Add me play multiple times daily

  5. Finally!
    Almost 2 task again!

  6. This holiday has been really easy so far to win the prizes. level 44 if anyone wants to friend

  7. Every time I leave and come back, the Xmas decorations on my houses are off. Any idea how to keep them on? ‘Tis the season, ya know?

  8. Ack! I sent Lisa to make toys instead of snow angels! Is there any way to reset her task like the other townsfolk? (I.e. Storing a building?)

  9. Any clue what tomorrows tunnel will bring so I can be prepaired?

    • I have an idea…but want to make sure they dont switch it up…they already have with 4 of them. So I wait to verify it is the right info.

  10. first time I ever comment on something but i’ve been reading your blog like for ever now !
    you guys are doing an amazing job, it’s so awesome that everytime i’m too impatient to wait what happens next in the storyline, I can come up to this website and there’s already a post about it !
    so far i’ve been really liking the christmas update but I’m not very hard to please because I just love how beautiful my springfield looks in the snow and how detailed the programmers covered really everything ! did one notice that the skeleton on the tree from halloween has gloves on ? so sweet !
    I really like the fact that we as older players now finally get christmas decorations for many older houses 🙂 and I’m really looking forward to the second part of the santa storyline on christmas 🙂

  11. Anybody noticed the glitch with the writers building? It give it cash payout everytime you log in the game or visit friends or Krustyland. When you go back to your city the cash prize is back and up for grabs. It appeared after the update yesterday

  12. I’m confused a bit about the Santa. He has a few tasks that are locked and I cant figure out how to unlock them.

  13. I am so grateful for these tunnel posts. I’m not going to start this one until this afternoon so I can let the middle task go overnight and still have room in the 24 hour schedule to get the last one done when I wake up. This tunnel would have been a bust without your posts to help us figure out the best timing.

  14. More junk to clutter my already cluttered town. I love stuff that’s free and that gives you a plus, but this stuff looks so out of place as soon as Xmas is over. And if I put it in inventory, you don’t get credits. It’s a love hate thing.
    Not to mention, I’m a scrooge. I dispise the holidays.

    • Just hide stuff like that behind a building – that way you get the multiplier without having to actual look at it!

  15. I really do wish I had read this post before starting this one. I started it at 7:15 AM and even if I’m right on the minute with each refresh, that’s 1:15 PM and then 7:15 PM for the final phase, ending at 1:15 AM which isn’t possible for me to complete… There is the alternative of waking up a few minutes earlier to just barely catch it before the 24 hours expires, I guess. The 18 hour long one wasn’t a very good move.

    • Agree, why does the time frames have to be so long. Why can tasks just be 2 hours a piece at 3 tasks. it requires the same amount of times playing the game. Making gamers have to play the game for 18 hours is too big of a push and irrerates a lot of us. I love it when people call tasks “hard”, no task is hard. All just require tapping a couple buttons which require no skill whatsoever. So just make the task shorter……EA……please!

      • It’s all in the timing… I realized this morning that the best strategy is to start the first tunnel task close to bedtime; then, when I awaken, finish off the other 12 hours with some time to spare before the clock runs out. It will mean having two tunnels going at the same time tomorrow, but there’s nothing wrong with that!

  16. Is anybody else not getting presents when you visit your neighbors? I’ve even tried dropping Feds and still not getting anything. 🙁 I’ve already contacted EA just waiting to hear back from them. Just wondering if anybody else is experiencing this.

  17. P.S. From the picture above, that totem looks ugly… Wish I could have the Sanjay house lights instead 🙁

    Have they ever had a choice mechanism in this game (where players could choose between two options of something)? I’m guessing not, because that would probably make things a lot harder for the programmers…

    • Not that I remember. It’s just a way for new players to get old items they generally ask for…and older players to still get new stuff.

      The way I see it is EA’s giving an advantage to those players who’ve been playing TSTO for a long time. They’ll let newer players get the older stuff, but older players will get new stuff.

      • Oh, I get that…. I was just wondering inn a more general way. I could see an “options” thing being interesting in some future event, where they give folds the option between two new items, but, if they’ve never done something like that before, my guess is that it’s too much of a programming headache.

    • It is hideous, but there’s a bonus percentage attached to it – this is one of the few 2013 items I have, and for several weeks I put it in my inventory because I was a brand-new player who was very short on land and money, and I didn’t see the point of having something so superfluous hanging around. Then one day I looked at the description – that thing has been gracing my town ever since, and it even now has a permanent home in my fledgling camping area near Satan’s Anvil & Mt. Carlmore.

      I’m excited to eventually get Sanjay’s decorations (I’m not bothering with an 18hr task right now), but technically the totem is the better deal.

      • Really? Thanks for letting me know! Now I’m actually excited that I’m going to get it! 🙂 Once the event is over, I can always hide behind some building lol.

    • Oh it is, but seeing as how dh was born in Alaska, means something to me! I too would prefer Sanjay’s house, but the idea is floating about that new players may have a chance at these later in the event. Hope it’s true!

  18. Clever that there are two Lisa tasks while Level 48 needs Lisa too. Timing is not one of EA’s strengths. 😉

  19. Hmmm… 18 hours of non-stackable tasks… Looks like the smart thing to s do will be to start this tunnel later today and let it go overnight (since, if I start it first thing this morning, it’d have to wake up very early (or in the middle of the night) to finish it).

    So grateful, once again, for these posts, which let me strategize this stuff so that I don’t lose out on the bonuses. So far, I haven’t missed one yet! 🙂

    • Since the timer starts ticking only after starting the first job rather than when the tunnel opens, it’s basically in the player’s hands to start them later in the day so that they can make effective use of away-from-game or sleeping time. And the worst thing to happen upon failing to complete in the 24h time is losing the bonus presents, not the prize itself…

  20. This is for those, who are poor on in-game money, this is the Krusty Burger Oil Rig

    • Going by your in game amounts in the picture everyone can see you hack the game, next time let the screen time out before taking the picture, unless that’s what you were going for of course…

    • Thanks for posting this. I was waiting for one of my neighbors to buy it so I could see how big it is. Really happy they added another item for the Sqidport area.

  21. mmmm, so to be a completist its going to cost money…… and no matter how hard i work, i just can not get the gifts, I am just shy of 10,000, so looks like i wont be getting all the phase one prizes…..

  22. I’m at level 19, so I have only 2 dimwits: Homer and Cletus. Fortunately, I’m currently ahead of the daily pace in the gifts count (10176) so I won’t need the extra 100 for completing the task in the 24 hours.

    • Did you not play clash of clones? Barbarian is a dimwit.

    • It can be done for 6 donuts. Start Homer and Cletus. After 2 hours, donut both (Tasks at 4 hours or less cost 2 donuts). Start Homer and Cletus again. After 2 hours, donut Homer and restart Homer. Cletus finishes at 8 hours, Homer finishes at 10 hours. Lisa’s tasks take 12 hours, so you are done in 22 hours for 6 donuts. Not the best use of them, but if you need the 100 presents, it would work.

    • Chief wiggum is a dimwit, don’t remember when the meranda rights quest line hits thou

  23. I’m getting kiiiiinda worried there won’t be any Orange House decorations. I don’t need to know which day, but it’d be reassuring to know if it’s on its way. ^^u
