Note: Yes a few returning items hit the store today…however because they’re returning we’re not doing a new Should I Buy Post on them. You can check out the older Should I Buy posts here or here for these returning items. The only added benefit for them is the currency population now….
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.
As we’ve seen with recent events (really since Stonecutters in June of 2014), EA likes to add an element of Daily Challenges to each Event as a way to earn more currency, special prizes and sometimes event bonuts! (bonus donuts) The 2015 THOH Event is no different. Yesterday we saw the Shop Keeper’s Challenge get implemented with the House of Evil! This is a great way to do tasks each day to earn bonus crafting currency and earn bonuts each week!
So as Bunny broke down in yesterday’s post…to get the Daily Challenges you need the House of Evil. Now some of you may have it from previous THOH Events (which I did) and some of you may not. If you don’t have it you’ll be awarded it for free once you trigger the challenges.
So now let’s cover some basics…
When Does a new Task Start?
Tasks unlock at 8am LOCAL TIME each day. So whatever part of the world you’re in at 8am your time the next day’s task will unlock.
Do I Only Have 24hrs to Finish Each Task?
No. If you don’t finish Day 1 when Day 2 unlocks it’ll still allow you to finish Day 1. And You don’t have to finish them in order. So basically Day 1 will roll over into Day 2 if you don’t finish it before Day 2 unlocks. And you can do both Day 1 and Day 2’s tasks.
You just can’t jump ahead. So you can go backwards and finish a task, but you can’t move forward until that day unlocks.
So How Long Do I Have to Complete Each Week’s Challenges?
You have a full week (7 days) to complete the 5 challenges. The Challenges will reset each week on Monday, so if you don’t complete the 5 by the time they reset you’ll miss out.
Today’s Challenge Says I Have to Squish Zombies, Can I Squish Them in a Neighbor’s Town and Have them Count?
Yes and no. As long as you still have your neighbor actions available (remember it’s only 90/day) if you tap ZOMBIES in your neighbor’s town it’ll count toward the Zombie total. But if you’ve used all your neighbor actions already it will not count. (this same principle applies to upgrading..if you need Zombies to upgrade and you’ve maxed out your friend actions for the day they won’t count towards the upgrade total).
And I think that addresses most of your Daily Challenge concerns…
So now let’s take a look at what we can expect from the Daily Challenges this week:
|Monday 10/12||Tell a Scary Story at the Spooky Campfire x4||100|
|Tuesday 10/13||Squish Zombies x30||100|
|Wednesday 10/14||Make Youngsters Make S’mores x15||50 50|
|Thursday 10/15||Craft a Prize||100|
|Friday 10/16||Squish Snakes x100||100|
And that wraps up the details on the Daily Challenges and info for week 1!
