Christmas 2015: Weekly Challenges Week 4

There is a questline that popped up today (Tuesday) involving Homer called Out with the Old.  I’m working through it now and will have a post up on it shortly…but it’s very short (3 parts) and all of the tasks require Homer.  

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

New Christmas weekly challenges restarted yesterday!  So let’s take a look at what you’ll need to do for 5 days during week 4 to earn bonus prizes and 20 bonuts!


Sorry these are a little late this week…I was away on Monday and didn’t get a chance to verify the challenges until today…

Remember all new tasks unlock at 5am your local time….and you have until 4:59am your local time next Monday to complete the challenges and earn the bonuts.  More details can be found on this post.. (NOTE: Because Act 2 ends on 1/2, it’s possible the challenges may leave with it.  So do your best to finish the challenges this week BEFORE 1/2/16, to be sure you don’t miss out on the donuts)

And there you have it my friends, the challenges to earn you 20 bonuts during week 4!

What are your thoughts on the Daily Challenges?  Did you earn your 20 bonuts last week?  Think you’ll get there again this week?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. I don’t think I’ve received the bonuts in the Week 4 challenge although I have received the Maggie snowman 🙁

  2. On Week 4 Challenge, day 2 where they go caroling it won’t let me do it. Is there a reason why?

  3. I earned Festivus CBG but I can’t seem to select that outfit. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?

  4. Marc from Nova Scotia

    Any idea if a sale/discount on donuts is imminent? Somehow I assumed EA would offer this during Boxing Week.

  5. All the ice sculptures in tapped out I crafted have disappeared. Checked inventory and are not there. Any suggestions?

  6. Haha, I’m loving Festivus CBG so far! Also, it’s nice that Patches and Poor Violet seem to be getting a break in the new loading screen. Hopefully Flanders is giving them something useful…

  7. Thanks for taking the time to post this, with everything going on and all! 🙂

  8. I have crafted all the items from Act 1 and Act 2 and I still have a lot of crafting resources left. Are there any items which are beneficial to craft multiple times, like the wailing walls in the last THOH event?

  9. I have a task for number 1 that is locked because it requires “Fewer lattes”. Please help!

  10. Worth mentionig that if you are under level 20 you cannot complete the sing carols quest. It requires City Hall. Aaaand I think that’s pretty bs

    • Aha! I was wondering what was going on there! Thanks for inadvertently answering my question. And yes, super lame!

  11. Hey I got Maggie as a stand alone character today. Did anyone else get her?

  12. Sorry if I’m late to the party but are we done crafting after this act? Should we blow all of our crafting currency now?

    Happy New Years 🍻🍾🎉

  13. The Problem Child

    Also, there’s a 4th part to Out With the Old, but it doesn’t start til tomorrow and will require all Simpsons.

  14. Will there be an act 3

  15. side comment…

    Is anybody else having issues with getting Festivus CBG to work? For some reason even though I earned him, he’s not showing as an alternate skin.

    I tried placing him into storage and nothing.

    • The skin didn’t “apply” automatically. I had to go into my inventory, in the character section, and “use” it. Maybe that’s your issue, too?

    • You have to retrieve the skin from storage

    • check your inventory, i know when i unlocked it it said “new skin has been added to your inventory”

    • I had a moment of panic as well, since his new skin didn’t show up when I tapped him. Then I realized the pop up said the new skin was “in your inventory.” I checked, and there he was. Pretty sure he was under the characters tab, so take a peek in your inventory. 🙂

    • I just want to say a huge thank you to the three of you for all your hard work and dedication! I didn’t find this site until level 50 something, but better late than never!

      And, yes, I earned CBG and completed all tasks and quests, but I do not show him anywhere. Also my Fortress still has the green goo on it. I did complete the Maggie quest line before upgrading all my buildings, so maybe that has something to do with it? I’m working on all of Homer’s tasks now for the new year hoping F. CBG isn’t a premium skin and doesn’t help with the event.

    • Is it possible you still need to take the skin out of storage? When I unlocked the skin, it went straight to storage and I had to open it up and place it.

      • Yes, thank you, I found him. He wasn’t in my inventory by the two locked skins for Tap Ball–I had to hit the character icon and there he was!

  16. “Craft and Item” in your table above should be “Craft an Item”.

  17. Also worth noting some of the online shop items will be leaving in under 4 days, so some may benefit even more from getting the daily tasks done sooner, rather than later.

  18. Do we know …..Friday’s challenge, will merrymakers tapped in neighbours’ towns count towards the 100 ? because if you have 30 neighbours, that will be 90 …….so if neighbour visits were due…..the daily challenge could be completed within 15 minutes 🙂

    • Most likely not, I don’t think it’s counted for any of them

      • I seem to recall the last time we had to tap Merrimakers, tapping in neighbor towns did nothing for me, even though I had actions available for the day, as stuff for the event was still dropping from neighbors.

    • One Merry Maker generated every 5 minutes is 12 / hour. Which equals just under 100 (96) in an 8 hour period.
      With 20 allowed in your bank and 40 in your town for a total of 60, this challenge is achievable.
      Let your town and bank fill up over night and clear it out first thing in the morning. Go to work and when you return you will have enough to finish the task.

    • It’s not 90. It’s 50.

  19. How in the world can you do every task before first of january as the last task starts at the first of january…
