It’s Easter in Springfield!

Update 9pm EDT: An update just hit…this is a patch restoring the Beach House, Bartman’s Cave & the Radstation Air Fortress for purchase.  Remember you’ll have until April 7th to purchase these items…

Update 7pm EDT: If you’re just downloading both the App Store update and the Easter Update at the same time the Easter update will start up first.  However, get past the initial dialogue with Ned & Homer first and then get past the Gil Dialogue and the Mystery Box questline should start up.  However, now Mr. Burns MUST be free to trigger it.  It will no longer auto start.  So make sure Mr. B is free and you should see the ! to start it.

Update: It appears this update has pulled the ability to purchase the Beach House…it’s not listed in the store.  It should be there.  Will contact EA once I leave work to see what’s going on with it.
Also, a report from a lovely Tapper, AnothrAddict, Brandine’s quest with Valentine’s Day has been skipped over.  Here’s their comment: “Heads up For those who didn’t complete the st paddys quest b/c of brandine….it skipped over her today and moved on to part 7. Yay I was waiting to end of event before I sped her birth (so weird to say) so now I can spend doughnuts on new mystery box and/or Easter stuff.” I have no way to verify this myself so if it’s working for you now please let us know.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As a special update inside an update today….EASTER HAS HIT OUR GAMES!  Ok well a mini Easter Event anyway.

2015-04-01 19.53.07

Gotta love those updates inside of updates…just when I was ready to wind my day down they pull me back in! 😉

Anywho things will get started with Flanders and some auto start dialogue.  Back with more details in a bit..just as soon as I find more Red Bull..

Oh and Gil’s Back too!

Gil

As mentioned above Flanders gets things started…the dialogue should auto-start for you.

Easter Fools Pt. 1
Flanders Auto-starts

Flanders: My favorite group of holidays are coming up – Good Friday, Easter Sunday…
Homer: And Half-Off Candy Day!  That’s the Monday after Easter Sunday.  And Dumpster Candy Day.  That’s on Tuesday.
Flanders: Homer, I’m worried that all your favorite holidays revolve around discounted candy.  Have you forgotten the true meaning of Easter?
Homer: Is there any answer I can give that will keep me from getting a lecture?
Flanders: You could give me back my snow blower.
Homer: Alright, I’ll take the lecture.
Make Ned Teach Homer About Easter- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Make Homer Pretend to Listen- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp

This will kick start Easter in your town.  At this point you’ll be able to see the Easter items in the menu…warning it’s from last year:

Now I believe I mentioned something about Gil…

Once you’ve started Easter Fools Gil will popup in Springfield…

Gil: Ol’ Gil fell on some hard times.  I moved into a shipping container and got shopped to Polynesia.  The plus side is I traded the container for this Polynesian god.  Celebrate Easter with something new and Gil can celebrate with a hot ham plate.
Homer: Polynesian god?  That’s nonsense!  Easter is about a bunny that lays eggs and a guy who comes back to life.  Hmm, that sounds pretty ridiculous too.  Maybe this new god has something going.  What’s his philosophy on church attendance?
Lisa: Um, Dad.  Mom said you weren’t allowed to change religions again without consulting her.
Polynesian God: No church!
Homer: Woohoo!
Polynesian God: Just back breaking labor to create giant stone statues in my honor, which I will then grade and use to rank you.
Lisa: Graded and ranked?  Daddy I want it!

If you don’t take the deal you’ll see this

Flanders: Every day without a pagan idol is a good day for Ned-a-rino!
Gil: Ol’ Gil will be fine.  Just got to tighten the ol’ belt a bit.  Or SELL my belt.  Anyone want a belt?

The Easter Island God awards a 3% bonus on all cash and XP and sits on a 3×3 base.


Easter Ends April 7th.  (sorry forgot to put that in earlier)

So my friends that looks like it for this Easter Rundown.  We’ll have should I buys for the Gil Deal, as well as the returning premium items up soon.

    • There’s an end date set to the end of April. However we don’t know if that’s pulling it completely or just the end date for the free box

      • Ok… I am sure everyone will be very happy to have the new mystery box on permanent basis, but I strongly believe this will not be the case. Let’s grab what we want while we can! P.S. I just got my BHL too… just missing Kearney!
