Turbo Tappin’ Chili Cook-Off: Main Questline and Prizes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Chili Cook-Off time in Springfield!  Gather up those Insanity Peppers and get ready to lose your mind, as we take a journey with the residents of our pocket-sized Springfields for the hottest Chili known to man!

Of course, as with all events, a questline comes with it to help move us through the ins and outs of the event…and unlock all of the prizes.  As was mentioned on the rundown post this mini event is similar to the previous mini-events (like Deep Space Homer and the Fire Department), in that you’ve got to complete various tasks to unlock the prizes.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just how to unlock all the fun chili inspired prizes and take a ride on the insanity side…

Insane in the Brain Flame
Auto-starts

Try Insanity Mode- This is a new game that launches.  Reset time is 8hrs.  For me, for today anyway, it awards Pharmaceuticals for completing.  Basically you have to tap tortoises in 30 seconds.

  1. This episode on FXX right now!! 7 central

  2. My app won’t let me update. Any idea why?

  3. Just rewatched the episode and realized I already have something from it in my town.

    E.A.R.L.

  4. Linda Barbour

    Had 62 days left for my corn to finsh, it automatically completed at the quest to grow peppers.

  5. blackgypsyrose13

    Yay, Chili Cook Off! Yummy! But, ooohhh, the heartburn is felt already!

  6. talon8770 /// rick m

    I also had a hard time buying them i just kept on trying until it worked

  7. has anyone tried setting corn at cletus’ farm before getting to It’s Not the Heat, It’s the Humidity Pt. 2? I just set mine, hoping it will auto-complete to allow for the growing of peppers…

    • You’re not required to grow the peppers. Usually it only works if you’re required to do it.

      That being said, it never hurts to try…

  8. I am very interested in that game! Can’t wait to finish all the questlines so I can start that. So far you said we get only pharmaceuticals, is it possible it will change next time you play? Would be great if we could get donuts that way too, aldo highely doubt it, considering we already have the Maggie game. Prizes are not very attractive to me this time, only the Insanity Cauldron looks fun. Wished some of these can produce money/xp, I don’t need anymore decorations. The mini event is very fun though, this was one of the greatest episodes!!! I’m enjoying all these events we have lately (mini and full-sized ones).

  9. Fat Tony (Joe Mangtana) just sang “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” @ Wrigley Field v. The Dodgers!!!

  10. Is the Space Coyote voiced?

  11. I keep getting an error message when I try to buy donuts. Just curious, is this happening to anyone else?

    • I would wait until tomorrow to buy donuts. Tomorrow’s called “donut day” in the files..

    • I didn’t try to buy anything with real cash recently and a message about ITunes Purchase didn’t work… So yeah, I think Alissa is onto something, wait tommorow before real cash purchases.

    • Interesting. I received several ERROR messages indicating that my purchase could not be completed. —– And I was not attempting such a purchase.

  12. Is anyone having issues with getting the update to complete on android?

  13. This one is going to be fun 🙂

  14. This looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun, and hey – not too long, either!

  15. Is insanity mode permanent, or will it end the same time as the event?

  16. Alissa why does Carl only get 34xp and other freemiums get 35? is that just a typo? (sorry) 🙂 love the work you guys do though i make sure i read the posts every day

  17. Michael Reyes … I sent you a private message via FB that I hope will help you with your missing charger dilemma. Hope it help you make a big o’ mess of chili. Cheers!!

  18. I’m so excited that they were even able to work in the tortoises! This is an awesome mini event!!

  19. With all this Insanity I wonder if this is a sign we might get (M.J.) Leon Compowski in our game 😉

  20. Is a new crop going to be useful for this event if I’m growing corn for 76 more days?

  21. Insane in the Brain Flame! *squeeeeeek*

  22. Now I just looked up the word “Chili” in Spanish is “Chile” so if I went to Chile and asked for a bowl of Chili/Chile would they think I’m crazy?

  23. IT sucks because i lost my tablet charger and my tablets dead so i cant play this event 🙁

    • blackgypsyrose13

      Would your phone charger work to charge your tablet? My son was always taking my phone charger and I just found out that it works to charge his tablet?

    • Best Buy
      Fry’s
      Electronics Store?
      I forgot mine when I was on a trip across country. Rather than experience painful withdrawl, I purchased another one. I now have two chargers, if one is good, two are better!

    • Do you have an available PC or Mac? Download BlueStacks, and you can use it like a normal Android device. Even if you don’t have an android tablet, you can still login to your EA account once you’ve installed Tapped Out.

  24. I’m glad I read this because since I didn’t win the first prize yet I was wondering why the Heck Cletus didn’t have an event currency option. When you mentioned him in the first post I thought it was for him to have it instantly.

    Thank you for the clarification 🙂

  25. Insanity Mode sounds fun, but I hope it offers a variety of non-Heights prizes.

  26. They say he carved it himself… from a bigger spoon.

  27. Insanity mode? Sounds insane!

  28. I had the update this morning, then it went away 🙁

  29. Alissa you did it wrong! Enough with the who did what! You simply need to state “just tap quicker”! Simples! Lol 🙂

  30. Thank you again for all the hard work putting this stuff up. This is my favorite and mostly only TSTO related website I visit for info. You guys rock. *end of ass kissing*.

    This is a great mini event and I love having Space Coyote now.
