Tap Ball Prize Guide: Act 2, Prize 5 Tennis Marge

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Are you ready for some Tap Ball!? Tap Ball is the newest sensation sweeping the streets of Springfield.  A game invented by our very own Homer J Simpson!  In the Second “Act” of the Tap Ball Event (funny they’re called Acts, really they should be called Periods like Hockey.  Oh EA, I thought you knew sports 😉 ) you’ll unlock Tennis Marge, FIT Milhouse, unlock Community Challenges and continue to challenge your friends and neighbors to some friendly Tap Ball competitions!

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts (again, should be called Periods EA…), with each Act containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act.  Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the Second Act you’re tasked with collecting Hats (ico_june2015_hats_01) to unlock each prize!  The Final Act 2 prize awarded at 30,000 ico_june2015_hats_01 is Tennis Marge, a new skin for Marge so she can FINALLY get involved in an event!

  1. Tennis Marge is a fun skin (you can make her Crab Walk for 24 hours (lol)

    I prefer Character Skins over NPC’s (new Buildings are always nice) 😉

  2. I’m really glad that Marge got to participate in this event and I like her outfit. But it’s hard losing Witch Marge’s crop speeding task…I was racking up the XP growing three or four rounds of Triffids a day!

  3. i like me some tennis marge.

    that is all.

  4. I like her outfit. She might just keep that most of the time when the event is over.

  5. Glad to see Marge is finally involved in something (she was completely left out of the Terwilliger event – its pretty bad when Mr. Teeny and Suzanne the Witch have event tasks and Marge does not). I did like how EA hung a lantern on the situation and basically explained why Marge was always left out – introduced too late in the game to kick start any event tasks.

  6. this act was super awesome. i got Marge and after that came to 45000 hats, so getting free donuts 5 times. hopefully i can reproduce that in act 3, since the new things give even more than the hats.

  7. I was sloppy about collecting Hats, and this led me to get only Springy in the last minutes of the Act 2, totally missing out Obstacle Log and Tennis Marge.
    I now won’t will miss out Act 3,because it’s the last piece of this Summertime event.

  8. anyone else have something else in mind for her crabwalk task? I had visions of the Exorcist in my head (yeah I know it’s not Halloween but I didn’t know there was a tennis move/skill called that…

  9. Somehow they should’ve done a quest with the tennis field, that would’ve been fun to watch!

    • Yeah they should have done her serve task on the tennis court instead of just in random places of Springfield
