Note: If you’re thinking about buying donuts…wait until tomorrow. Tomorrow, June 3rd, is donuts day! So hold off on buying donuts until you see what’s coming tomorrow. Thanks to LPN for pointing this out. I saw the dates in the files, but for some reason thought today was the 3rd. So when nothing triggered I figured it was just incorrect coding. Of course in the end it was just me who apparently really wishes it was Friday lol
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well…it’s time for the next big thing in TSTO…the Chili Cook-off! (Can you hear Ciara’s squeals of excitement? ;))
Homer gets things going in our games with a 6s task to Drink Beer with Intensity. And that’s followed by another 6s task (hey Brooders has some great foreshadowing..). And just after that the event will start…(and it’s just like Deep Space Homer, Fire Department and others…do tasks, earn prizes. I’ll detail it below)
Back with more as I go through it all…details below. I’m running out to a drs appointment. But once I get back I’ll update the images.
A note on this…you must be Level 20 to see this.
As you can see from the image above..this Ends June 15th…
So much like the recent mini events…the Chili Cook-Off is going to be the done the same way. A few premium items to purchase in the store, but mostly complete a series of tasks to unlock prizes. Pretty simple, and everyone should have success with this 🙂
First let’s take a look at what’s available in the store:
Pro-Shop and Space Coyote- 120 Donuts. From what I can tell the Coyote does have tasks. And yes I’ll have a Should I Buy up on this…
Ajax Steel Mill and Roscoe- 150 donuts with a 50 donut rebate, so net of 100 Donuts. Roscoe returns from the Pride Event of 2015. I’m kinda glad because I forgot to buy him last year…pregnancy brain. Should I Buy
Five Alarm Chili and Devil Flanders- 120 Donuts. I’ll break this combo down, but for those curious here’s a Should I Buy on Devil Flanders. If you have Devil Flanders, the stand is 75 Donuts alone.
Once you unlock it as a prize, you can also purchase more Hellfire Pepper Cacti. They’re 15 donuts each and award a .50% bonus.
So after you finish the initial 6s quests, and launch the event you’ll start the It’s Not the Heat, It’s the Humidity questline. This is where you’ll earn the prizes for the event. Here’s a look at what you can win:
Insanity Cauldron- First prize, requires collecting 20 Insanity Peppers. Insanity Mode comes with this prize. You won’t unlock it until you’ve completed the questline. But it awards currency, and launches a new game. More on this below.
Grow Insanity Peppers- Second Prize, requires collecting 40 Insanity Peppers. This will unlock the ability to grow Peppers at Cletus’. Grows 6 Peppers every 3hrs.
A Little Bit of Lenny- Third Prize, Requires collecting 60 Insanity Peppers. Cook-off stand for Lenny
Backwater Brewery- Fourth Prize, Requires collecting 70 Insanity Peppers. (Decoration)
Hellfire Pepper Cactus- Fifth Prize, Requires collecting 90 Insanity Peppers.
King Chili Tent- Sixth and Final Prize, Requires Collecting 100 Insanity Peppers.
Here’s a list of who you can send to earn Insanity Pepper:
Space Coyote- Earns 4, 55xp
Roscoe- Earns 4, 55xp
Moe- Earns 2, 35xp
Lenny- Earns 2, 35xp
Carl- Earns 2, 34xp
Apu- Earns 2, 35xp
Homer- Earns 2, 35xp
Cletus- Earns 2, 35xp
Once unlocked, you can grow Peppers at Cletus’. Costs $40, 6Peppers Grow every 3hrs
From what I can tell, Peppers do not carry over if you earn over the required amount.
Once you’ve unlocked all of the prizes you’ll unlock Insanity mode at the Cauldron. This will award you game currency for playing a new game. The game is tapping as many tortoises as you can in 30 seconds. Here are some shots of the game:
I’m going to play around with Insanity mode more, check out payouts and potential rewards. I’ll have a full post breaking it all down once I have the analysis. 🙂
And that’s it for the Chili Cook-Off my friends! Many decorations, a few premium additions, and once spaced out Coyote!
