THOH Prize Guide: Act 1, Prizes 1 and 2…Crafting Materials and the Spooky Cabin

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well here we are, in most Tappers favorite time of the year in Springfield….Halloween! ¬†(although I prefer Christmas ūüėČ ) ¬†The leaves on the tress have changed colors, the water is murky and there’s a darkness that falls over our TSTO screens. ¬†All of these effects fit in perfectly with this year’s theme….Nightmares.

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts, 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 first Act you’re tasked with collecting S’mores (ico_thoh2015_smores_md)¬†to unlock each prize!

The first Act 1 prize awarded at 180 ico_thoh2015_smores_md is a supply of Crafting Resources to help you craft fun prizes during the event!

THOH 2015 101: Crafting Act 1

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well here we are, in most Tappers favorite time of the year in Springfield….Halloween! ¬†(although I prefer Christmas ūüėČ ) ¬†The leaves on the tress have changed colors, the water is murky and there’s a darkness that falls over our TSTO screens. ¬†All of these effects fit in perfectly with this year’s theme….Nightmares.

For the last year (THOH 2014 was the first year they did this), EA has broken up Events into stages. ¬†Where every couple of weeks new prizes will be released. ¬†They’ve also, over the last year, added an element of crafting to each Event, where you pick which prizes you want and craft accordingly. ¬†And they’ve continued both methods into THOH 2015.

While the prizes themselves are pretty self explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”. ¬†Crafting requires some self direction. ¬†You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly. ¬†Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not. ¬†However, crafting for this event is pretty simple and straight forward…and there’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to get every craftable item you want this time around.

Now I know some of you still have questions about what to craft, if you should wait or craft now and what will happen in future Acts for THOH…so as we’ve done in the past, we’re here to breakdown all the crafting fun for you guys. ¬†So let’s take a look at the complete guide to Crafting in Act 1….
