Wild West 2016 Prize Guide: Act 1, Prize 3 Stage Coach

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Wild West is alive and well in our Springfields!  As the Wild West Event has hit our games and it’s full of old west inspired decorations, buildings & characters!

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 Clues (ico_wildwest_clue_md) to unlock each prize!

The third Act 1 prize is awarded at 2360ico_wildwest_clue_md is the Stage Coach, simply because every Old West Town needs a Stage Coach…duh! (did they say duh in the Old West? 😉 )

Once you’ve collected 2360ico_wildwest_clue_mdyou’ll automatically be awarded the Stage Coach and you’ll see this message popup:

And you’ll have the option to Place the Stage Coach in your Springfield immediately or store it for later.  Remember if you store it you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it…

The big deal with the Stage Coach is it’s one of the required pieces to play the finale scene.

While we don’t quite know what the Act 1 Finale Scene will look like, we do know that the Stage Coach will play a role.

Here are some quick facts about the Stage Coach:


Size: 3×7
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Vanity +200
Where Can I Place It: grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|beach|dirt 
What Does It Do?:
Not much as of yet.  I have a feeling it’ll be important once you unlock the finale scene though.

And there you have it my friends, the details behind the Stage Coach Prize!

What’s Next?
Well there is 1 prize after the Stage Coach, 400 Cowboy Hats.  I’m not going to do separate posts about it as it’s pretty basic.  Once you unlock it, more hats will be added to your hat total.

indicator_townplaza_cowboyhats Awarded at 4,430ico_wildwest_clue_md.  This will add 400 Hats to your total Hat count (found in the Event Hub).  This is not a tangible item for Springfield, it’s just 400 Hats added to your total on hand.

Next Tangible Prize for Springfield…

charactersets_homer_cowboy Cowboy Homer- Awarded at 7,490ico_wildwest_clue_md.  This will be the next prize we cover in a rundown post.

So that my friends is the full breakdown of the third (and fourth) Act 1 prize!

  1. What was Homer’s dialogue in the act 1 finale? It went off before I had chance to read it

  2. What is the icon next to the characters? I keep looking for the answer and cant… but also notice you can speed up some jobs for free? Has anyone figured out if there is a penalty for speeding up?

  3. I’m wondering if anyone else is having a problem in the General Store. Every time I click to make an exchange in the store, the game stops and kicks me out. Is this a known glitch?

    • Yes, know glitch and EA is working on it

      • I am having the same problem. Day 3. Today I did get to trade a couple of things but I was getting things from act 3. Now I am back to not being able to trade anything also getting thrown out when I try.

    • My husband is having the same problem, hasn’t been able to play and he’s so frustrated that he’s going to be behind on act 1. I hope this problem gets fixed ASAP

    • I’m the same on mine help???

  4. I’m still having issues with my prospectors, the odd time it reveals a name when tapped but for the most part I don’t know who’s dropped. If I’ve missed dropping in your town because you’ve dropped in mine, my apologies.


  5. Having read a post that crafting with hats a picks produces maps- am I doing the wrong thing holding off crafting until a new day crafting prize unlocks? Could this be why appear to be a day behind on bunny’s calendar. Thanks.

  6. I found a glitch, you could tap 4-5 bandits per neighbor as long as you tap your last 3 simultaneously

  7. Should I pull Homer away from earning event currency to do his new skin quest, or can I wait? I don’t want to stall my progress.

  8. Tropicaltappet

    Hi Bunny, I’d just like to find out if anyone is having the same problem with harvesting resources from bandits in their Other Springfields? The bandits in my town only drop friends points, cash and xp but nI pickaxes, clues or hats 😕
    Is this a glitch? Or a bug?

    • Only 30 taps earn event currency….the rest just earn cash and XP. You need to wait until your 24-hour counter resets before it will earn event currency again.

  9. Shadowstar Steampunk

    Don’t know if anyone else noticed this, but it seems that the Wild West Street with the sidewalk attracts the Boardwalk Performers, the Human Statue is now roaming my town!

  10. As far as prizes go I found some cool ANIMATIONS that ya’all might not have caught. 1) The large/tall group of rocks when tapped has hawks or birds fly around.
    2) The small group of rocks has a scorpion crawl around when tapped.
    3) The quick sand has a cowboy under the hat. When tapped wind will blow the hat away and you can see him underneath them he grabs the hat and puts it back over his head.

    Hope ya’all are havin some rootin, tootin fun!

    • I’ve got them in my working “desert” area. They look cool

    • Yesterday, I posted a thank you to someone for reminding me that I should tap on new items, like the horse, to see/hear what they do. But it never occurred to me that that could supply to *rocks*, too! Thanks!

    • Thanks, cuz it never would’ve occurred to me to tap the rocks! I love surprise animations like these.

  11. I can’t progress in this event, and it’s really frustrating. Every time I try to trade in hats and pickaxes, the game freezes and force closes. I have restarted my phone, uninstalled other stuff from my phone, uninstalled and reinstalled the game, removed any animations, and it’s still happening. Anyone know what else I can do?

    • Store MORE items in your town. I know that can be hard… but if your device is struggling it’s that or wait til event is over.

      • I’ve stored literally everything except buildings that have characters associated with them. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled and restarted my phone afterwards, too. Nothing helps!

  12. I think it’s so awesome now how their tasks display if they are outside or not now! ^_^

  13. all these problems everybody complains about . I don’t have any never did ios9.3 only the soundtrack music doesnt play sometimes but thats rare

  14. Not sure what today’s update was, but it maxed out my tablet’s storage capacity again. I had to delete Doodle Jump for this one…

  15. The bear cave looks great amongst the new rock formations!

  16. I am working on level 4 for the town plaza. Can’t wait until crusty burger is able to start producing bandits. Does anyone know how many levels ups are available in the town plaza??

  17. With All these patches You would’ve thought that EA would’ve fixed the payout on Agnes’ Wilted Rose Job. But they haven’t yet. (EA please don’t turn this into the She-She Lounge, which By the way has not been patched either.

  18. simpsons rules

    Yeah same here Diane the where Maggie didn’t work at the start for few days but that it and duh was not in wild west time

  19. “Duh” does not appear to exist in the old west. It doesn’t appear in writing until the 1940’s.

  20. On day 2 of game closing when I try to turn in trades at the store. Support said they were aware and “working” to fix things. Meanwhile I am making little progress in the game… Hope they keep “working”…

  21. Anybody else having trouble w/ Where’s Maggie since the Event started? I get the countdown “Dings” (but no blocks), then the game freezes. Really weird thing is that when I exit the game and re-start, it’s reset the timer on Where’s Maggie to 3 – 4 minutes out. Try again. Same result.


    • I’m getting a similar issue, but it usually does still run for me. Maggie starts to rise in her balloon, then fades out, but I can still see her images, then the beeps comes, after about 3 or 4 second then the blocks appear and the Find Maggie game timer starts. Once I got a “cannot connect to server” error right as the Find Maggie game was starting, and when I got back in, it had set a 5 minute timer before I could play Find Maggie.

      • And I have an even milder situation… The countdown beeping gets to the end and then the countdown blocks appear. But the rest of the Maggie game works just fine.

        • Mine is doing this, too. I thought it was broken at first because the blocks didn’t appear when they usually do, but the countdown beeping stopped, blocks materialized (albeit silently), and the game proceeded normally.

    • Yes. I have the same problem. However, I find that if I wait approx 4/5 seconds the countdown freeze somehow unblocks itself and the coundown & search can start. I suggested this to a friend and it works for them too. So I’d say wait it out and see if it clears for you too. I suspect it is going around a lot as there are a lot of changes, new features etc accompanying this event & the ‘game’s brain’, having been dormant/idle for so long, is now working overtime & struggling under the strain of it all😂…..💜X

      • Mine usually takes a minute or two to manifest the boxes (silently), but plays normal, but game is frozen in the interim. No sound during the freeze. I mean, it works. Yesterday before the patch it did throw a weird play again and again phase, buy at five minutes a play, i did a few just to make up for missed ones the gane “owed me” and then quit.


    • Same thing happening here. But I wouldn’t call it a problem, even in the first world

    • Shadowstar Steampunk

      In my game the bells ding then I have a 23 second wait until the countdown blocks show up, after that its Where’s Maggie search time as normal, thirst started happening for me at the start of the last full event.

  22. This is the third day in a row I’m going to have to uninstall and then reinstall, and I’ve been freeing up space like crazy.
    Have they been doing updates daily, am I missing something or am I doing something wrong?

  23. I usually Am a few days ahead of the calendar but for this event I haven’t even gotten Cowboy Homer yet!

    • I was too until I realised I could continue to turn in pickaxes & hats beyond obtaining the allocated daily prize. Keep trading until you get the system message that you’ve maxed out. I was 1.5 days behind due to glitches & now I’ve caught up (@ approx 11K). Good luck…..💜X

  24. Love it all.

  25. What is the activity symbol next to some tasks?

  26. I already have the stage coach and the Homer skin. I won’t spoil it for others so all I will say is that it is hilarious! Can’t wait for the finale scene! 🙂

    Update! Fort Sensible now sits on the dirt.

  28. What does it do: not much? Um its constantly animated, and gallopping/horse sounds when tapped.
