4/27 Housekeeping Notes: Wild West Event

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So..first, there’s an update in the Goggle Play Store. So if you missed it, get it.  It’s helping some players deal with the General Store Glitch.


Second, as many of you are starting to finish your prize track and you’ve completed the main questline (by unlocking the Finale), you’re seeing another task popup called More Clues.

This is basically telling you to collect 1500 ico_wildwest_clue_md….

From what I’ve observed…this is NOT an opportunity for Bonuts.  This is just a task telling you to collect ico_wildwest_clue_md.  My guess is this is in place to remind you to do exchanges at the General Store to continue to unlock those prizes.

Again…this is NOT a chance for Bonuts.  It’s just another task…

If you’ve had something different popup offering you Bonuts please email me (TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com) with a screenshot.  I’ve tried it in 3 different games, no Bonuts.

This More Clues task will also go away after you’ve completed it once.

The only opportunity we see in Act 1 for Bonuts is via the General Store Trade Ins.  On Day 14 you’ll earn Bonuts.  And that’s the only thing we see giving away those free donuts.

Hopefully this clears up some confusion!  And I really hope the new patch helps many of you get back to playing!

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 seventh Act 1 prize is awarded at 15,860ico_wildwest_clue_md is the Bank and Top Chop Barber Shop, because Wells Fargo had to start somewhere…
