Terwilliger Act 2 is Upon Us!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Greetings from the early morning hours here on the East Coast.  It’s about 4am here now and Act 2 has just arrived in our games!

Remember…this is an automatic change in your game.  Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..

Homer will kick things off for Act 2…

Just what does Act 2 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look…

2015-04-14 11.51.38

 Take the following with a grain of salt of me typing at 4am after having multiple players tell me they wished they waited…Also, if you don’t want the Farmer’s Market or you’re no where near close to getting it, just upgrade.  But if you’re super close (and by super close I mean like a day away) the immediate upgrades are worth it IMO and it’ll take you close to two weeks just to get back to that point..
There are two sides to this, and neither side is wrong.  So do what you want, just know that upgrading and burning through all your fertilizer will set you all the way back to the start. 

Also note…this is meant for those who are only a day or so away from getting the Farmer’s market.  If you’re still really far off (more than a few thousand away) Upgrade.  Upgrading is always better in the long run because it’ll enable you to unlock more tasks for DNA and Corn as well (thus allowing you to create the other items and upgrade the Sprayer).  This is simply advice for those who are super close.  

Guys I’ve said this multiple times and now what I was worried about is starting to come true…DO NOT RUSH TO UPGRADE MONSARNO.  If you’re grinding for the Farmer’s Market keep grinding, upgrading Monsarno quickly will just make that currency you worked hard over the last 2 weeks for disappear very quickly (and there’s only 1 new Fertilizer task).  Several of you have already stated you rushed to upgrade and you wished you hadn’t.  Patience, if you’re grinding for the Market keep grinding.  I’ve posted some of the upgrade rewards below…as you can see for the Market you’re better off continuing to grind for it and then upgrade Monsarno.

There are a few early tasks you’ll need to do to get this Act really rolling, so make sure you have Homer, Lisa and Bart all free to get things moving in the new questline.

Initially you’ll have 2 four hour quests for Lisa followed by TWO 24hr quests for Bart for the questline..

Now, let’s take a look at the new stuff added to our games…

New Crafting Currency

Yup, corn and fertilizer are still around…but now we have a 3rd crafting item added to the mix…DNA strands!

Collect all 3 to craft prizes during Act 2!

ico_terwilligers_fertilizer_lg ico_terwilligers_corn_lg  ico_terwilligers_dna_lg


Yup…the same items from Act 1 are still in the store…for the same amount as they were before.  So you’ll still be able to unlock those…except some new ones have now been added!

Here’s a look at the new stuff that’s been added to crafting during Act 2:

Act 1 Prizes Now Craftable

If you missed out on any Act 1 prizes you can still get them by crafting them.  Here’s a look at what they’ll cost to craft:

Note: you can only craft them if you did not unlock them.

New Mutants

The Mutant Veggies are gone!  But they’re now replaced with…Mutant Sideshow Bob Veggies!  (they make an excellent Soup stock!)

mutantclone01_idle  mutantclone03_idle

Squishing them will award you 5 Gas Masks and 4 Crafting Currency (at Level 1)

Herbicide Squirter 


As always…Frink has come up with an invention to save the day!  The Herbicide Squirter will destroy the Bob Clones!

This won’t unlock until you’ve reached The Science of Cooking. And you’ll have to build it from the store (it’s free).

Using the Herbicide you’ll be able to “mow down” multiple clones at a time.  You can also increase the spray radius by upgrading the Squirter (think board with nail at Halloween/Upgrading HQ for Superheros).  Upgrading the sprayer will also increase crafting rewards that are paid out.

Sprayer upgrades require Corn and DNA

To use the sprayer, you just tap the clones as you normally would.

Level 2 Sprayer will award 7 Crafting Currency (instead of 4 at Level 1)

Level 3 Sprayer remains at the Level 2 rate, but increases radius. (you’ll be required to upgrade to level 3 for the questline)

We’ll break all of that down in another post…

Monsarno Upgrades


Monsarno is still upgradable…and we’ll cover the full details in another post, but here are some quick basics.

Upgrades still only require Fertilizer and Corn

At Level 8 you’ll unlock a task for High Rollers to Get DNA (which you’ll need for crafting)

Level 9 will increase your corn payout for tasks

Level 10 will unlock a job for Kooks to get Fertilizer

Level 11 will increase Fertilizer rewards

Level 12 will unlock a job for Brainiacs to get DNA AND award the Monsarno Library for free

Level 13 will increase DNA rewards from jobs

Level 14 will unlock a job for Civil Servants to get Corn AND award Monsarno Human Resources for free.

More level ups to come in another post…

Changes to Cecil’s Daily Task Payout

Cecil Victory

Cecil’s Daily tasks are still there, however the payouts have changed slightly…

You’ll be awarded 150 Gas Masks for every daily task you complete and in addition you’ll get some crafting currency at each stage.  Here’s the payouts:

First Task- 25 Fertilizer, 150 Gas Masks

Second Task- 20 Corn, 150 Gas Masks

Third Task- 60 DNA, 150 Gas Masks

Fourth Task- 135 DNA, 150 Gas Masks

Neighbor Actions

In neighbor’s towns you’ll be tapping Sideshow Bob clones instead of mutant Veggies, but they’ll still award the same 1 Gas Mask payout and you’re still limited to 90 actions/day

You can also drop Mutant Seedlings, they’ll work exactly the same as they did in Act 1.

Note: Your Herbicide Radius will carry over to neighbors towns, making squishing Mutant Clones a bit easier.

Sideshow Bob

After you’ve completed the main questline the final part will be to build the Outdoor Opera Stage (Free) and you’ll unlock Sideshow Bob!

outdooroperastage_menu unlock_sideshowbob

New Premium 

italianvilla_menu unlock_francescaItalian Villa and Francesca Terwilliger- 150 Donuts.  Will be in store until the end of the event

And that my friends covers the Act 2 basics…

I know a lot of you want all of the details and you want them right now…but be patient.  Remember this is a marathon not a sprint.  And as always we’ll be back with more as we go through and break it all down… you know when it’s not 4am 😉

What do you think of Act 2?  Any additions you’re happy with?  Anything you’re not happy to see? Thoughts on where the questline is going?  What about the Act 2 prizes?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. Chemistry15fun

    Having lots of fun, choosing between upgrades or simpsonsfarm is hard. As the Dutch say:”god zegene de greep” which translates roughly, choose one and hope for the best.
    I dont spend any coins thus far but the temptation is there. Lol. Cu ingame.

  2. Worst update ever!

    Too much going on, too many characters need setting on missions too often for stupidly small volumes of corn, fertilizer etc.

  3. I’m running late on everything because of my “jjjob”. Don’t even have the market yet… 😉

  4. I guess I never completed the quest line because I never go the opera stage or bob

  5. I’ve upgraded my Monsarno to level 23 and have seen no improvements on rewards for the last few levels. Anyone know why the upgrade description says it “Increases fertilizer, DNA and Corn rewards” when in reality it doesn’t?

  6. Just had a look at the Terwilliger Event shop and saw 1 rake being sold for 7 donuts, 3 for 18 and 15 for 75 godaweful donuts…who is ever going to buy those things?!

  7. I finally got my monsarno research to level 19 and herbicide squirter to level 15…so, i don’t think anymore upgrade is needed to actually create a huge difference in my earnings…but i am curious to know how much difference does it make in my rewards from jobs if i upgrade my monsarno research to level 20…i might consider it if it seems lucrative…otherwise with an average of 2000-3000 fertilizers gained daily, i am on my way to obtaining the Farmer’s Market in another 5-6 days 🙂

  8. I was watching the veggie Bob’s walking around my town and I noticed that they sometimes stop and do something with their hands but it was too fast and too small to figure out what it was. Do you know? I’m really curious now.

  9. Please help me get the daily news/updates to my email. (akprest2@comcast.net
    I was adding a comment and got some word press (I think it was called). It made me make an account and stuff and the unscribe was activated and now I cannot receive any updates. Thank you. Will be waiting for your email!

    • I have nothing to do with that. That’s a Word Press issue.

      If you want to follow this site you can put your email address in where it says Follow blog Via Email, on the site.

  10. Just got Sideshow Bob… cool !!! He’s just amazing with a lot of outdoor tasks !
    And really like his task in the opera… does anybody know if the other family members have such a task ?
    (And I want to thank Alissa, Bunny and The Wookie for their incredible work… I don’t know how you can write all those articles so fast ! 😅)

  11. Hey tappers if ure on at least once a day add me walo84 as a friend

    • I tried to but it wont let me semd ang for some reason. If you could try adding me at chilihawk9 that would be cool. I play every day

    • No one i know plays this game so I’ve sent you a friend request. I’m on several times a day. I’m not far along in the game & can’t say i totally understand what hell’s going on but I’m making progress. Lol.

  12. Es obligatoria edna para tener a bob?

  13. Does anyone have the same problem I am having?… I can’t receive mutant seeding dropped by neighbours most of the time. I got notification on my hp that someone has dropped in but I can’t find in my springfield. I logged the case with the helpline 3 times but no help… they just tell me to follow the standard clear cache, reinstall process (1st time), wait 1 hr cause they might be hiding (2nd time), wait 24 hrs and post on the forum (3rd time). I have 100 neighbours, 99 active but on most days I get zero mutant in my springfield ! Btw, I know of the 4 hrs don’t tapped it’s gone thing… not in my case. I go in immediately after notification. I even get my friend to drop their mutant in while I am on standby… still nothing. It’s so frustrating!

    • This is my suggestion… Dont pay attention to the pop ups. I say this due to most of the time they are delayed. Many times I will go into my town, tap on them, get ready to leave… THEN the pop up comes. I already cleared what that person dropped. That sync sometimes takes a bit.

      Secondly… those lil Bouncing Blobs are fast and sneaky. They start on sidewalks, but scatter fast. I use my “movement” menu to hide all the buildings, decorations, and roads… then look for them. They hide well and also will disappear INTO buildings and decorations. Similar to Sideshow. So at times patience is required to find them.


  14. Hi just wondering when u will be putting info on the buildings u can upgrade for new update???theres not much there still🍻

  15. Love the updates.

  16. Oh good heavens, I now have 3(!) Minimum Security Prisons. I got one yesterday on my tablet, it’ll finish building in an hour. Today I was at the laundromat, and signed in on my phone, and was awarded not only another prison, but another bag of fertilizer and a tray of DNA! I logged off, went to move my laundry to the dryer, logged back in, and got yet another prison! I have no idea where I’ll put them, but I’m not complaining!☺
    Also, can anyone tell me the size of the Gas & Grub?

  17. Currently my monsarno research is on level 12 and my herbicide squirter is on level 8…would it be a good idea to keep on upgrading them till the end of act 2 and only start on gathering craft ingredients for crafting from the start of act 3?…will i be able to get all the craftable freebies in such manner?

    • I wouldn’t. Honestly Your sprayer it as a good level…little advantage to keep upgrading (but if you wanna go head, just stop at 15 cause then there really is no benefit)

      As far as Monsarno, I’d stop at 19 at the latest (in some cases at 17). You don’t want to get to far behind

      • Yeah i know that herbicide squirter’s would have no extra benefits after level 15 other than just expanding the region of its effect….so am gonna stop on that…and so i guessi would have to stop on level 17 for the monsarno case

  18. I have never seen sprayer. How did I miss it?

  19. Would’ve loved to have seen them put the mutants/clones in the springfield’s of neighbors who aren’t participating in this event, like they did with the criminals in the superhero event. Only about 40% of my neighbors are participating in this event…makes it look like they got fed up with the superhero event and just stopped playing.

  20. What are the pro and cons of purchasing the Italian Villa? Doc anyone get it?

  21. Does the sprayer have any impact on rewards from tapping in friends towns?

  22. I’ve noticed this morning that squishing the mutant Sideshow Bobs now only gives 3 masks instead of 5.

    • Just saw that someone else has also made this comment, good to know.

      I think it started in my town yesterday, I’d done my mental calculation of when I’d win the prison based on the 5 mask drop and it then took about an hour or so longer than I’d expected.

    • Yea it happened at some point yesterday, we’re trying to figure out why. No update hit the game to drop it…so we’re looking into it a little further.

  23. Does this mean no more Sideshow Bob running around town to be tapped? Because I’m 124685321% ok with that. Starting to find him annoying with my town having a bunch of stuff.

    Also, funny to note, since the event started, none of the mutants have gone anywhere near my castle area from CoC. I have my 4 Nerd Mages out in front and I like to think they keep the mutants at bay lol. Thought someone would get a kick out of that.

  24. Is anyone else mutant bobs giving out 3 gas make now or is it just me? They were 5 earlier today.

    • Yup it’s going around…we’re looking into it.

    • Yes, I just noticed that myself! After upgrading the herbicide thingy to level 3, I’m just getting only 3 gas masks instead of 5. What a load of horse-hockey if this is intentional to slow everyone down and get them to spend donuts!
