Where Did THAT Come From – Saxophone Lisa

Hey hey screamereenos!

Your cadaverous pallor betrays an aura of foreboding, almost as though you sense a disquieting metamorphosis…. that’s right friend… HALLOWEEN IS UPON US! Of course, with a brand new event, comes a ton of new stuff and thankfully one of my jobs here is to tell you just where new items come from. I know we all can’t watch the Best. Show. Ever. as often as some fuzzballs and even though items might seem familiar, a lot of things blur together and you just can’t pinpoint just where you saw it. That’s why we decided to make a fun lil feature for just this predicament. To let you know just Where did THAT Come From?

THOH Prize Guide: Act 1, Prize 3…Pirate Kang

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well here we are, in most Tappers favorite time of the year in Springfield….Halloween!  (although I prefer Christmas 😉 )  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 third Act 1 prize awarded at 2,160 ico_thoh2015_smores_md (or +1,620ico_thoh2015_smores_md from unlocking the Spooky Cabin) is Pirate Kang, an all new hilarious costume for everyone’s favorite Alien Kang!

Shopkeeper Challenges- House of Evil

Update from Alissa 9:20am EDT: Hey Tappers…this should be working for most of you now.  If you’re worried about getting the glitch, try storing the shop before you place it.
Beyond that it looks like the tasks started at 0800 Local time…and as you can see below the first task for today is to send 4 youngsters (really only Bart, Lisa, Martin and Milhouse…or just send 1 4 times) to tell spooky stories at the campfire.  My strategy for this is to just send Milhouse 4 times since I’m working on Bunnies for my upgrade today…

Hey there Screamereenos!

So EA seems to have launched some items overseas a bit earlier than they were intended. ( It was not set to go for a few more days. Like we always say, can’t go off of the info in files as the golden rule, gotta wait til live to see it play out. EA can, has, and will change. 😉  ) Due to this, here in the U.S. we are flying a lil blind as the Challenges have NOT hit our games…yet.

The Daily Challenges. This will require the House of Evil and just like in the past, have random tasks for you to perform each day to get Rewards. Due to it has not hit our games yet in the U.S., I will have to wait to see it live to verify the stats with what is live. Once I can visually see it AND verify it all matches with the data… we will put out the full details.
