Cecil Terwilliger’s Daily Tasks 5/1

Hey there Hoppereenos!

This is your Daily Bounce By to let you know what time drops I saw for Today’s Cecil’s Daily Tasks.

Cecil Victory

Here was the breakdown of Cecil’s Daily tasks I got in both my games…


1st Daily Task 1hrs
2nd Daily Task 1hrs
3rd Daily Task 6hrs
4th Daily Task 4hrs

Remember, the tasks and Character Groups will vary for every player. Let us know if you see anything different in your game.

Here are the Top 5 I always leave free for the Daily Tasks (also in the post below). This allows my other Characters to focus on other Material earning tasks. (This list was made to be friendly to all players. If you have some Premium Characters that could replace them with, feel free to.)

Comic Book Guy WolfCastle Rod OR Todd Quimby Grandpa Abe
Brainiac X
Entreprenuer X
Celebrity X
Civil Servant X
Criminal X
Glutton X
High Roller X X
Dimwit X X
Youngster X
Kook X
Pessimist X X
Saint X
Senior X

You can find a lot more detailed post on the Daily Tasks HERE.  😉

FYI… If you did NOT complete a task from the prior day, it rolls over to be the FIRST task of the next day. You will lose the higher payout. So finish them BEFORE the reset or you will have it become the next day’s task. 

How are your daily tasks coming along? Getting them done? Visiting Neighbors still going well? How are your New Gas Mask Materials counts coming along?  Let us know.

  1. Hello …. Australian time 12:20am 3 may – first Cecil task is 4.0hrs – do you need this info? Happy to help but not sure of time difference? :))

  2. Holding Pattern

    I’m at the point where I need to send Mrs. Krabappel on a date, but I have a problem. I don’t have her yet. I’m at Level 24, and I’ve just sent Quimby to write a book on ethics. I’ve looked over the walkthrough, and I see that I may have to acquire Nelson and do all of his tasks before I can unlock Mrs. Krabappel. Is this true? Or is there a way to expedite this process? If I have to do all of Nelson’s tasks beforehand, I’m going to be on SERIOUS hold before I can continue the Act 2 Storyline 🙁 HELP!!!

    Today I got 2-4-6 (so far) on my A town, and 2-4-4 on my B town. Yesterday both were 6-4-4-6, but Wednesday, they differed (I don’t remember the exact numbers, except my B town had a 6hr task when A town had a 4hr task (opposite today’s). Usually they match each other (~1 miss a week until this week), but it’s been a 50/50 hit or miss of mine matching the TSTO times posted.

  4. …may not be the right place to post this but I really wanna thank all my neighboureenos for playing so avidly : )
    super special thanks to jcbllr for the super fun *blob tennis* lovin it : D

  5. Only 50 minutes from completing the final task of the day. All days have matched so far 🙂

    One annoyance today, I’ve now got the glitch which stops the 2hr task “Don’t care about the future” from being highlighted. Makes assigning tasks more awkward.

  6. So after not finishing the 6-4-4-6 yesterday (by 2 hours) I finished the last 6 at 7:30am to be today’s 1st task and got a 1 hour and now a 6 hour. I realize I can’t finish every day as I refuse to set an alarm over the game, but I do hope things like yesterday don’t become a trend.

    • I had the same 6-4-4-6 task list too. Didn’t finish by a long shot. Disappointed in EA that they don’t cap the total hours at 12 or so.

      • If you see my post a bit further down, I *think* they tried to cap it at 16 – but it doesn’t seem to be working properly

      • Crusty Krusty

        I think not limiting the total hours to 16 is a programming oversight. They noticed the gas masks were being accumulated too quickly, they should also make an adjustment to the daily tasks imo. I sure hope we don’t see another 20 hr day again.

    • OtriviaLaLavia

      Me too. Yesterday my tasks added up to 20hrs, today 16hrs. Wondering about tomorrow.

  7. Yesterday’s last task rolled over for me because I was without wifi most of the day and the next was/is 4 hours. I hope I can get today’s completed. :/

  8. … just jelly blobbed you both too..haha

  9. On one of the posts on the EA forum somebody has listed all the tasks – including for future dates. Presumably they dug them out of the files.
    But, the interesting thing is, no 4 consecutive tasks add up to more than 16hrs – even allowing for rollover of daily tasks.
    So, if loads of people are getting 6,4,4,6 I suspect things are not working quite as EA intended.

    • Well 16 was pushing it anyways but 20 is outrageous! I do hope those affected have complained : /

    • Crusty Krusty

      I completed each day’s tasks of the event until yesterday’s 6-4-4-6. So the people affected weren’t the result of a rollover.

  10. Sandra Shill

    I’m changing my strategy and I’d thought I’d share in case anyone else is interested in considering doing the same…. At some point recently, it started to bug me how much crafting currency I was losing by keeping certain characters free on the off-chance that the group they were in would be needed for a Cecil task. So, now I’m sending everyone on tasks and, if I need someone for a Cecil task, I just free them up by storing and unstoring the building that they originally came with. (There is at least one person in every category I can do that with, and usually a lot more than one to choose from.) That way, I lose nothing, event currency wise, that I wouldn’t have lost anyway by keeping that character free in the first place, but I stand to gain for every character that I didn’t end up needing free!

    The only type of player I might not recommend this strategy to would be someone who needs to focus on accumulating cash, since storing and unstoring a building resets its “harvesting” clock.

    If anyone sees a flaw in my new strategy, please let me know! 🙂

    • Makes sense to me. I haven’t been keeping anybody free from the start, except maybe the first day.

      • me three : )

      • Yeah… It’s kinda killing me thinking about how much currency I lost with my original strategy. 🙁 And I’m still worrying about having stopped my Monsarno upgrades at 11 to focus on getting the farmer’s market….really hope I don’t regret that down the line, too.

    • That’s what I’ve been doing.

    • It’s a good strategy. I was only ever leaving Ralph free until the last daily task because he was a kid and a dimwit. Otherwise, I made certain the “other” non-item getting characters were free. If you are at the higher levels, this worked. Well, before the Kooks got a job. But that is only an hour long.

    • this is what i ended up doing as well. homer and lisa are the only two i’ve been checking on before tasking, since those two can’t be put away.

    • Great suggestion, Sandra; thanks for sharing!!!
      I keep forgetting that I can store their building to free them so the reminder is helpful. Spent a few donuts to speed them up. Argh.

    • You’re right Sandra. It’s a good strategy. I’m going to do that from now on. I have been following the advice given by Bunny on keeping the same 5 characters free (the chart that she provides). However, which building do I store to free up Rod and/or Todd? I tried Sir Putts-a-lot because that is the building they came with but it doesn’t work…

      • Sandra Shill

        Yeah – as you’ve discovered, their a couple of the only characters that aren’t associated with a building. But you don’t really need them, as there are other Kids, Saints, and Kooks to choose from, especially since you’re no longer needing to worry about keeping multi-purpose characters free.

      • I put the 5 on time-matched tasks or 1 hr tasks if I can.

        • Sandra Shill

          I was doing that, to, but, for example, Wolfcastle’s 8-hour task went undone (fertilizer task!) every day, because it was the only currency task he had and I was keeping him free.

  11. I barely made yesterdays 6-4-4-6. Luckily I had started the first 6 right at midnight. Today’s tasks will be easier, I’m glad because I started late, was too sleepy to stay up last night.

  12. It was almost 10 p.m. and I get up at 5 a.m. and I was two hours away from the last task. So I thought, hmm, am I going to risk falling asleep and letting this carry over to tomorrow, or am I going to spend the stupid 11 donuts to rush it. Obviously at that hour I am one donut short of a dozen, because I did make the choice to rush it. Don’t know if that was a good choice or not, but at the time …

  13. Narcissa Bones

    Same for me! 6, 4, 4, and 6. Started the last one about 7pm and when I saw that it was 6 hours I just resigned myself to it rolling over.

    • ditto on the 6-4-4-6. I even started at midnight, but didn’t push to finish early because I figured the last two would be shorter. I was really surprised to see two 6s and two 4s in one day.

  14. Definitely yesterday was brutal @ 6-4-4-6. Finished it with 15 mins to spare. But so far today I got a 2 and 4

    • Interesting. had a couple 6s yesterday. Just barely got them done. wish my memory was better but I’m sure after midnight I did a 4 and I started a 6 when I got up for work that is running right now. They are definitely not all the same for all players. I don’t have any rollovers. I’ve finished each day so far. Hopefully I can keep it up. Only had a few min to spare yesterday.

  15. I’m pretty sure this has been posted before, but instead of leaving free characters for the daily task I put the assigned building in storage and place it again if I need a special character (eg school for Skinners). This can be done for all characters except Homer and Lisa.
    With this technique you can send the 5 characters to collect materials.

    • ditto. I think this is the way to go. I do keep a couple of characters (mostly) free who don’t earn event currency, though.

      • i just task everyone… that way when stuff finishes at the hq, i can just set theirs task all quick again without having to cycle through other characters.

  16. You know Cecil task? The third one today said prize is 50 mutant seeds. Do you have to complete all four tasks to receive prize? I’ve not had them put in my account yet so was just checking. Can anyone help please?? Cheers

    • Hmm I somehow missed that one. Are you sure it was mutant seeds? Mine’s just showing gas masks and DNA>

    • Are you sure you didn’t just earn the 50 Mutant Seeds gasmask prize after completing Cecil’s task?

  17. 4kidsandacatdog

    Well, because I didn’t finish yesterday’s tasks, today’s list isn’t much better than yesterday. Looks like it will be 4,1,6,4 for me.

  18. Hmmm, I’m different again – only the 2nd time. I’ve started 1, 2, 6…

  19. Yesterday I also had a 6, 4, 4, and 6. Today is a little better with a 2 hr task followed by a 4 hr task. Hope the 3rd and 4th tasks are shorter.

  20. So far 2hrs and 4 hrs

  21. Anyone get Frink’s cannon yet? One more thing to upgrade rather than craft stuff!!! Aaaargh!!

  22. So far, no match today. I’ve had a 2 hour task & was just sent on a 4 hour task. Yesterday, while I was able to complete them all, I had the 6, 4, 4, 6 tasks. Perhaps I should consider this sleep thing I’ve heard of. ..

  23. Can I ask a dumb question? Why are we called Hoppereenos? 🙂

  24. Yesterday’s tasks were brutal for me. 6 hour, 4 hour, 4 hour, and 6 hour. I’m gonna be an hour short of completing the last one. Hope this was a fluke

    • Mine was the same as yours I didnt complete it so starting the second part to todays quest in a few mins. Thinking about starting the 6 hr obe too before i sleep…😕

    • Yes so brutal I had to use donuts…. for the last task 🙁 Just to finish on time got 6hrs, 1hr, 4hrs and 6 hrs.

    • Orchidpup729

      I agree. I had the 6/4/4/6 task schedule yesterday, also. Ugh!

    • me too! 6-4-4-6! I thought for sure the last task would be an hour, or two at most but nooooo. I didn’t make it either😔

      • Same! I actually completed it because I woke up at 3-something yesterday morning for a bit, and couldn’t fall asleep last night until i finished just after 11:30. I think this game and the other one have conditioned me to wake every 4 hours :/

        It feels a little like the blue/pink egg teams from last event – like there are two or three schedules of tasks and you are classed into one schedule when an event phase starts. Last phase mine lined up with these posts every day. This phase they have not matched once.
