Quick Tip: Craft the X-mas Trees Slightly Irregular for 20 40 ASAP, it pays out Mistletoe (THERE IS A BUG WITH THIS PERTAINING TO WEEKLY CHALLENGES. See this post: http://tstoaddicts.com/2015/12/20/christmas-trees-slightly-irregular-week-3-challenge-bug/)
SIDE NOTE BUNNY: As I keep seeing this same thing in the comments, I will just put the information up here instead of copy and paste over n over in comments below. You MUST have your Characters free for any of the Questlines to trigger in Act 2. If they were stuck in say… the Snowman or Gingerbread House Tasks from Act 1, those are still timing down… so you will either HAVE to wait until they are done and you can get them out or store their buildings they came with to pull them out right away(if an option). Either way, they all MUST be free for the Questline Progression. (Mainly Homer, Lisa, Moe, and later Krusty.)
If you can’t find a Character, it is most likely they are stuck in the Snowman or Gingerbread House Tasks. It won’t be until they are done that the icon will show for you to tap and clear them. While trapped there, they can’t be used for any other tasks… including Questlines and for the Petting Zoo.
Of course, try the Basics too… like force close the app and restart device if a task seems “stuck” and “DO IT” won’t show.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s time! Act 2 is upon us!
Remember…this is an automatic change in your game. Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..
Lisa will start things off for you
Just what does Act 2 have in store for us? Let’s take a look…
New Prize Currency for Act 2..
You’ll earn Mistletoe similar to the same way you earned Santa Hats in Act 1, but with different buildings/items to upgrade.
-Tapping Merrymakers will earn you Mistletoe (they’ll still earn 3/tap…)
-You can also earn Mistletoe via the Daily Prize Combo. So basically Login everyday and you’ll earn Mistletoe
-They’ll also be awarded when you complete the MAIN questline, Turbo Tappin’ will be up later…
-You will also earn Mistletoe by upgrading the various buildings that will popup during Act 2. (follow the questline…)
Note: you will NOT earn Mistletoe from the Snowman, Gingerbread House or Wooly Bully. Those all now only earn cash.
Yes, they’re still around for Act 2 and work exactly the same as they did in Act 1.
Act 2 Personal Prizes
Picture on a Rembrandt- 2,850
Abercrombie & Rich- 10.250
Chocolate Shoppe- 19,250
Buckingham Pay-Less Motel- 27,450
Festivus Comic Book Guy- 35,250
Act 1 Prizes
IF you didn’t collect them all… you can still access them by tapping on the “ACT ONE PRIZES” tab in the Personal Prizes area. As you can no longer collect items for them, your only option now is to pay donuts to outright by each one left at the point you left off at. (just like every other event)
New Craftables Added
Act 1 Craftables
Act 1 Craftables have disappeared from the Craftng Menu. This is NOT how it should have happened, at least not how the game indicated it should have. Not sure if this is a bug or EA changed their mind. Throughout ALL of Act 1 the Crafting Menu said Event Ends…it did not say anything about crafting while you can for X amount of days. So if this intentional it’s VERY misleading by EA…
Personally, I would chat/call EA (you can contact them here) and complain about this. Based on what the game said they should NOT have disappeared and it’s not right that they did. So if it is a bug it needs to be reported, and if it was intentional than EA needs to hear that we’re ticked off about it…since the game never said they’d disappear. (like it does for prizes)
New Items in the Store
All of the items below leave our stores when Act 2 ends
Pig of Paradise Pen- 30 Donuts
Woolly Manmouth Pen- 30 Donuts

I won’t be doing new Should I Buy posts on the returning items. Check out the older posts for details on them. If there’s no should I buy for it, check out the rundown post and details…that’ll explain what it is/does and help you make a decision.
You can NO LONGER upgrade the Gingerbread House or the Snowman for free. They were exclusive to Act 1. If you didn’t finish and would like to finish upgrading them it’ll now cost you donuts.
4 Buildings/Decorations for Upgrading in Act 2. These will all help earn you more Mistletoe. We’ll break them all down in more detailed posts…but here are the buildings (each has 3 levels to upgrade to):
Exotic Petting Zoo
Reindeer Burger Truck
Fortress of Lonelitude
The questline will trigger each one of these…when in doubt work on the questline. That will guide you through everything. Don’t ignore it…
