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 ninth (and final) Act 1 prize is awarded at 25,580 is Wes Doobner & his Rib Hut, because the Old West needs a villain!
So let’s take a closer look at this ninth prize and just what happens when you unlock him in your Springfield…
Once you’ve collected 25,580you’ll automatically be awarded Wes & his Rib Hut and you’ll see this message popup:
As always, you’ll have the option to place or store Wes & the Rib Hut. Remember if you store it you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it.
You will have to place and build (takes 8hrs) the Rib Hut in order to unlock Wes. Once you’ve built the Rib Hut and Wes arrives in Springfield you’ll see his character unlock message:
And he’s part of the Old West Villains Character Collection:
Wes comes with his own questline, and it’ll start right up for you. This is one you can work on, until you need a character for currency in the Town Plaza. (unless of course you’ve completed Act 1 and are waiting on Act 2 to start..)
Here’s a look at the Turbo Tappin’ version of his questline…

And there you have it the details behind Wes Doobner and his World Famous Rib Hut!
Patience. That’s what’s on the menu now. Patience. There are no bonuts for this Event, so there’s no need to go crazy handing in clues. (we covered this here) So just have patience in waiting for Act 2 to start up. 🙂
After you’ve unlocked Wes, here’s what you need to do….each day (until Act 1 is over) you’ll need to complete 4 hand ins at the General Store in order to unlock each days prize. (remember Day 14 is bonuts!) So, just do the smallest possible hand in you can do to unlock the prize.
After you’ve unlocked the prize for the day, there is no point in continuing to earn clues (i.e. trading in items at the General Store). So save those resources, pick axes and hats. I’m not 100% sure they’ll be around in Act 2, but it does not hurt to save them, just in case. (especially since there’s no bonuts)
So, bottom-line? After you’ve unlocked all of the Act 1 prizes, trade in 4 sets of resources (the smallest value) each day to unlock the General Store Prize. After that hoard your resources (Pickaxes and hats) until Act 2 starts up on Tuesday.
So that my friends is the full breakdown of the final Act 1 prize!
