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 () to unlock each prize!
The seventh Act 1 prize is awarded at 15,860 is the Bank and Top Chop Barber Shop, because Wells Fargo had to start somewhere…
So let’s take a closer look at this seventh prize and just what happens when you unlock them in your Springfield…
Once you’ve collected 15,860you’ll automatically be awarded the Bank and Top Chop Barber Shop. They are two separate buildings though, so you will see two separate messages popup:
And you’ll have the option to Place the buildings 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…
While these two buildings don’t have a tremendous impact on our towns for this event, they do come with a short questline for Homer. My advice is to ignore this for now, until you’ve completed the Act 1 Prize track. Continue to use Homer for currency grinding at the Town Plaza
Homer: Woo-hoo! There’s a new bank in town! Another precious opportunity to open checking accounts and get free junk!
Marge: Homer, are you saying we have MORE than one checking account?
Homer: Oh, dozens! How do you think I filled up our storage locker with junk with the names of banks on it?
Marge: We have a storage locker, too?
Homer: Yup. But don’t worry — the stuff inside it was FREE.
Marge: And how much are we paying for the locker?
Homer: $200 a month. What’s your point?
Build the Bank- 4hrs
Make Homer Open Checking Account for Free Stuff- 6hrs, Earns $225, 55xp
Homer: Let’s see… I can get a pair of spurs, or a side of bacon, or a hangin’ rope! Sweet! And they all have the name of the bank on ‘em. Even the bacon. That’s attention to detail. I’ll take ’em all! Three accounts please.

And there you have it my friends, the details behind the Bank and Top Chop Barber Shop Prizes!
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.
Awarded at 20,720. 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…
Wes Doobner’s Rib Hut- Awarded at 25,580 This will be the next prize we cover in a rundown post.
So that my friends is the full breakdown of the seventh (and eight) Act 1 prize!
