Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Ah Autumn…leaves are falling, that crispness in the air has arrived and there’s a brand new season of TV on! There’s a whole new season of TV shows…and the Simpsons Season 28 aired this past Sunday! To celebrate the Season Premiere EA has launched a fun Episode Tie-In Mini Event in our games.
This event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes. For each part of Battle of the Brands you’ll have to earn via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part. Now that the Season Premiere has aired, the final two items are available to unlock in your Springfield!
So let’s take a look the fifth prize…and just what happens when you unlock the New Lard Lad Statue in your Springfield…
WARNING: Dialogue/potential episode SPOILERS ahead
Prize five reveals itself to be The New Lard Lad complete with its “focus group tested” statue! This is another facade for your New Lard Lad Building…
How You Unlock It: Battle of the Brands Pt. 5
Make Homer Beg for Gift Cards- 3hrs, Earns 1, 35xp
Collect Gift Cards- x30. 3hrs, Freemium earns 1 Premium earns 2 . And here’s a list of who you can send:
Laiird Ladd- Earns 2
Homer- Earns 1
Apu- Earns 1
Lisa- Earns 1
Moe- Earns 1
Quimby- Earns 1
Cletus- Earns 1
What Is It?: This one is a facade for your New Lard Lad building. It just changes the look of your New Lard Lad Building..simply tap the building to toggle back and forth between looks
And yes, your New Lard Lad still earns the same amount/rate as it did before…
BUT WAIT…There’s more!! (don’t you just love that line from infomercials? lol)
So when you unlock it you’ll see some fun dialogue popup…. (WARNING…DIALOGUE SPOILER AHEAD)
If you saw Sunday’s episode you will understand this next part well…if not, well it’s a little bit of a spoiler that’ll make more sense once you see the episode. Once unlocked the New Lard Lad Statue can/will reflect the sunlight
And which point something cool will happen…your statue will become animated…and, well..
So your New Lard Lad building will catch on fire! BUT…don’t worry you can put the fire out (or make it appear again) by tapping on your New Lard Lad Building and hitting the purple Toggle button…
Fun stuff! Especially if you think the building is as hideous as Laiird Ladd does!
And that completes the details of the New Lard Lad Statue facade for your New Lard Lad Building!
