Hey Howdy Hey My Elfish Tappers!
Well….unless you’ve been partying a little too hard you know that Elves have taken over Springfield! Elves work hard and party even harder…so much so that even Santa bailed on Springfield! It’s your job to contain the Elves and send them back to the North Pole. In doing so you’ll earn Elf Bells..which will give you some awesome prizes!
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 second phase, which lasts until the event ends (Jan 13th), you can win 8 prizes by collecting Elf Bells. The fourth prize awarded at 6,500 Bells is the Sequel Stop.
Let’s take a closer look at this Game store and just what happens when you win it in your Springfield…
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Ahead
Once you’ve collected 6,500 Elf Bells the Sequel Stop 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 6,500 Bell mark this message will still popup and your store will be waiting for you in your inventory once you get back to your Springfield.
The Sequel Stop will automatically be placed in your inventory, so you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it. Just tap the “use” icon to place it in your Springfield.
After you’ve won it some dialogue between Homer and Lisa will popup & you’ll be prompted with a task to place it. Here’s the full rundown:
All Sequels Aren’t Equal
Homer: Sequel Stop?! A video game store? I thought they all went out of business years ago.
Lisa: they rebranded. Now they offer an “intimate atmosphere” to debate the merits of various sequels. They hire hipster art school drop-outs. If you can convince one of them you’re right, you get an out-of-date video game for free. You can never convince them you’re right.
