Cecil Terwilliger’s Daily Tasks 5/2

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.


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


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

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


In case you missed it in the rundown post, as of Act Two, there are new payouts for completing these.

1st Daily Task 25  150
2nd Daily Task 20  150
3rd Daily Task 60  150
4th Daily Task 135  150



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.)

Pessimist X 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. Update on Cecil’s task lengths for 5/3?

  2. Ahhh I can’t help but get frustrated. My tasks today (May 3 because I’m in Asia) were 4-4-4-6 and since it’s only 5 hours to midnight I’m not bothering with that stupid “milk a cow” task. Why does the 6 hour task always seem to come last??? Sorry for complaining but I’m waking up in the morning to only 10 or 20 mutant Bobs so it just feels like the game is trying to slow me down wherever possible!

  3. I’m still trying to get the farm. But everything like the Monsanto and the herbicide squirter wants a upgrade. What do I do? Is it ok to wait untill I have the farm. Or do I 4 get about it? Help lol
    And thanks again. 4 all ur post. 🙂

    • The sprayer is only required to upgrade to Level 3, after that you don’t have to upgrade it. It’s way more important to upgrade Monsarno.

  4. …what the hey ho is a boon doggle?! : D

    Super dooper excited now just got the open air stage building24hrs ….so this time tomorrow I will most def POP!

    • Sandra Shill

      Lol – a “boondoggle” is an expensive, wasteful civic/governmental project that is really an excuse for someone in, or related to, government to either make money, or look good or something.

      It can also be used to describe similar non-civic situations (like a “business conference” being held at an expensive golf resort or something).

      I’ll have to look into where that word comes from…. I’m thinking it’s a word made up by someone like Mark Twain, but I could be very wrong about that…

      • Sandra Shill

        Etymology of boondoggle (according to wiktionary) –

        Coined by Robert H. Link, American scout, 1929; alternatively “boon doggle”.[1] Compare woggle of similar sense, attested in same period.

        In sense of “wasteful government program”, popularized in 1935 by The New York Times, in reference to New Deal programs which were claimed to feature people making such braids.[2]

      • Awesome thanks Sandra ….I had never heard that term before and thought it must be an American saying! I love knowing the origin of slang and plan to use this term at some point in conversation during teaching to make my students giggle : D as I certainly did!

      • boondoggle is not limited to government entities.

      • Yes, jocephus – I said that in the second sentence of my original post.

  5. I had 1, 1, 6, and 1 hour tasks today in all three of my games.

  6. Two days ago I had 20 hours worth of tasks. Today I had only 4!!! Yes, I actually had 4 – 1 hour tasks today.

  7. I hope my task times end up the same as yours… That’s a nice, doable schedule! 🙂

  8. I’m finished my daily tasks and it’s 8:30 am here. Insomnia will do that to you and last night was the night! So my tasks times were all one hour tasks so in four short hours I’ve completed them. First time I’ve had only one hour for all.


  9. I am thankfully matching yours today : )

    *waves at Sandra ….thanx for the jelly blob* I dropped you a couple back : D (brooders)

  10. EA gave me a nice little birthday present. My tasks today have been all 1 hour tasks. I’ve finished all of them, and it’s still early. Time to ignore the game and have a fun birthday.

    • Happy birthday!

      Don’t have too much fun…remember, you still have to send characters on their event currency earning tasks! 😉 😛

    • Happy Birthday Brian! Enjoy your day and make sure you do one fun thing….


  11. My bad I’m lvl 18…..and BTW thanks for all the daily posts….I look forward to ready them every day and the comments before I get to the sports page

  12. I got a 1 hr, then a 4 hr…..I’ve updated the center to level 17 and the spitter to lvl 3….but it seems very difficult to achieve the prizes of gas station and the farmers market….I think those should be my max lvls, now I’ll start hoarding all currency

  13. I am starting out with 1 hr today, not 2


  14. Glad the mystery box stayed as I won 10 donuts today! Just the boost I needed!! Need a little help deciding what to spend them on please …hans moleman or blow all on rich texan or keep them for now in case of something new in act 3?


  15. Ruth-Merwe Thorsrud

    Thinks run rather smoothly. I assume that I will be able to get all the prizes and can craft all as well. I do visit my neighbours regularly. I find it a bit sad that you do not see anymore when neighbours are visiting your town, except of those few that drop the mutant seeds.

    Thanks for all your valuable information. You rock.

    Greetings from Norway,


  16. I’m calling shenanigans… Princess K can be a professional celebrity but can’t do any of the jobs

  17. So far my first two were 1 hour each. Just started the 2nd 1 hour task. About to head to dream land.
    I haven’t missed finishing a day yet. My days line up about 50% of the time.

  18. If my usual pattern works out, I could have a task list of:

    1st Daily Task……….. 1hr
    2nd Daily Task………. 1hr
    3rd Daily Task……….. 1hr
    4th Daily Task……….. 1hr

    (Well, with a minimum 2-hour gap between the end of the 2nd task and beginning of the 3rd task.) :/

    LOL! 😀

  19. So far TSTO is taking pity on me today, yesterday was 20 hours worth of tasks, today, the first two are only an hour long. Looks like mine might be a mirror image of your tasks today.

  20. Hey bunny finally figured out the Upgraded Mystery Box mystery:
    the expire date was only on the quest to get one free new Mystery Box.
    Unless EA releases an update removing them, the new MB are there to stay! I guess I had to check better on the files 🙁

    • Yah. I never saw one for it specifically which is why I never posted it was going. 😉

      Those “kill dates” can be misleading many times.

      I am also working on the gas mask count if you didn’t see. Waiting on word from Studio. Or an update to game.

    • Actually, that’s what Bunny and Alissa were saying here all along that that’s what they were guessing was gonna happen (with the caveat that we couldn’t know for sure until it happened).

      Boy, that sure was one tortured sentence construction lol! 😉

      At any rate, that’s an example of why I think that this is the absolute best TSTO site to hang out on…generally very reliable, mostly spoiler-free info, within a fun and friendly atmosphere. (And I like that there aren’t all those distracting gifs and stuff that folks use over on the EA forums…much easier to read through the comments here without them (though I do wish that WordPress would let you quote someone and edit your posts after you submit them).)

    • When I saw the conversations about an end to something around the mystery box, I decided to start hitting it. Just-in-case. Plus 6 donuts is nothing I spent 60 donuts and got almost every new big item!! Since I also got 30 donuts, I was only down 30. Then I hit my 5 days in a row bonus a day later and got 30 more donuts to bring me back to no donuts spent! Wow EA!!

      I also recently ran across another TSTO site when I was doing research on whether or not to buy Gino or Francesca. The advice given about the current event was so cringeworthy. It was actually very bad advice where one would be better off doing the opposite! Thanks for all the awesome info you share with us. The game is ten times more fun with this site around!
