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 final prize…and just what happens when you unlock the Springfield Bowl in your Springfield…
First thing I’d like to point out…because many of you are asking…NO there is NOT a new skin for Mr. Burns that comes with this prize. He will have a TASK at the bowl, that will show him in the costume you see on the prize track above…but a skin for Mr. Burns does NOT come with this prize.
The final prize reveals itself to be the revitalized Springfield Bowl! This is a brand new building/decoration for your Springfield. And similar to the Open Air Stage, and other items, characters can preform tasks there. Let’s take a closer look…
How You Unlock It: Battle of the Brands Pt. 6

Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +200
So once you’ve unlocked, and built (only takes 6s) the Springfield Bowl there is another little questline that pops up, as well as some dialogue from Mr. Burns explaining what happened…
(WARNING…DIALOGUE SPOILER AHEAD)
Burns: Thanks to your donut additions, I was able to acquire Tianjin Mining and Smelting and Donuts. Let this be a lesson to you all. With that, I will un-shutter the mines, open smelting plants, and as my final mercurial act, rebuild the Springfield Bowl!
And then you’ll launch into the Springfield’s Got “Talent” questline….
Springfield’s Got “Talent” Pt. 1
Auto start when placed and built
Make Burns Inspect the Springfield Bowl- 1hr, Earns $70, 17xp
Springfield’s Got “Talent” Pt. 2

Springfield’s Got “Talent” Pt. 3
Make Burns Show Them How It’s Done- 1hr, Earns $230, 48xp
But much like those late night infomercials…we’re not done yet. There’s more!!
The Springfield Bowl will operate much like the Open Air Stage, or the Opera House. In that characters can perform there to earn more cash and XP. While the building won’t earn regular cash and XP, sending characters on tasks there will.
To start a performance, simply tap on the Springfield Bowl and tap Perform on the dialogue box that appears…
Here’s a look at who can perform at the bowl, and what the Payout for each is…
And as I mentioned above…Mr. Burns’ performance (Dance a Jig) is what makes him go up on stage and perform in his little costume that appears in the prize track. Again this is NOT a new skin for Mr. Burns. It’ll only show up for the (very amusing) performance…
And that completes the details of the Springfield Bowl!
