Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Well…you’re welcome. I went to lunch and as soon as I left the office EA decided to drop an update on us. I swear it’s like they have cameras following me around 😉
Anywho…a mini event just hit our games…the Springfield Olympics! Lisa will get this started with a 6s task. Followed by 6s tasks for Snake, Wiggum & Quimby. This will launch the event itself…. (and a 3hr task for Homer)
Back with more details as I go through them… More details below the fold…
As mentioned above after you complete a short series of 6s tasks the event itself will launch…
Much like the mini events of the past…this is no different. Complete a series of tasks to earn prizes. Pretty simple stuff! 🙂
This event ends August 16th…which shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone, since EA announced that starting August 16th you’ll need to have a more updated OS system. (See this post for more details) Most of us suspected something bigger would be coming around that time….
Anywho let’s take a look at the goodies (as always I’ll break everything down in Podmore detail later. Including the walkthrough for each part of the Games)…
There are 6 total prizes that you can unlock. They’ll range from buildings and decorations to animations and characters. Here’s a quick breakdown (in order they unlock):
A couple of other things are awarded via the Prize Track that you can’t see…well mainly the Pin Stand..
As mentioned above you’ll get Pin Collector Lisa by completing the questline that unlocks with the Pin Stand.
In addition to that you’ll also unlock a mini-game…the mini-game allows you to collect Pins. Collecting Pins will earn you a character for your Springfield…Fatov!
I’ve got to play around with this aspect a bit more, but I’ll break it all down for you in another post.
And now for the new stuff in the stores….premium stuff:
Note: The Tire Fire will earn participation Ribbons. 2/3hrs.
Sportacus- 85 Donuts…Returning from Tap Ball. Should I Buy
Gym Locker Mystery Box- 75 Donuts…Contains a character from Tap Ball…Jockey Bart & Furious D, Tennis Marge, Ballet Ralph, Kung Fu Comic Book Guy or Toreador Abe (Note: this will NOT unlock until you’ve gone through a couple portions of the quest/prize track)
There’s also a rebate deal available on Lugash…(175 donuts, get 40 donuts back)
I’ll have Should I Buys available for all them items once I go through them and evaluate.
And that my friends is a quick, rough, breakdown of everything this mini event has to offer! Again I’ll be back with the Walkthroughs and more details on Pin Collecting and Should I Buy posts for all the new premium items. For now have fun with it! 🙂
