Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Welcome to the wee early morning hours…at least here on the East Coast. But who can sleep when there are monsters to battle?! Act 2 of the Halloween Event is upon us….so have at it my friends!
Remember…this is an automatic change in your game. Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..
Lisa will start this for you with dialogue between her and Mayor Quimby. This will be followed by an 8hr task for Lisa. Oh, and you will have to complete the Act 1 questline. So if you didn’t complete it yet, you won’t see the new questline.
Act 2 runs until November 1st
Just what does Act 2 have in store for us? Let’s take a look…
New Prize Currency for Act 2.
So the ability to earn Film Strips is now gone. Your counter prize track for Act 2 has reset to zero because you have zero Clapboards. So forget about the film and now it’s time to start over with Clapboards.
You’ll earn Clapboards very similar to how you earned Film Strips in Act 1….
-Tapping Fereal Monsters (remember the winged ones need to be tapped twice) (Non-winged pays 10 , winged pays 20)
-Defeating Giant Monsters (Pays 150, 210 or 255 depending on Monster)
-Completing Daily Tasks (Pays 350 when you get a clapboard earning task)
-Tapping Camera in Neighbor’s towns (pays 5 )
-Clearing Cameras in your town, that neighbors have left (pays 1 )
-Sending Kids on Trick-or-Treat Jobs (pays 30 freemium and 40 premium)
-Sending Count Burns, Booberella, Suzanne the Witch and/or Space Mutant to Set Up Training Exercises (pays 50 each)
If you have them….Shauna, Sherri and Terri will now be able to Trick-Or-Treat.
Giant Monster Changes
First there’s a new Monster to beat….as a reminder here’s the original ones and how you defeat them/what they pay:
Send 1 Character to Fight, pays 150
Send 2 Characters to Fight, pays 150 plus 60 bonus for second character
And here’s the new Monster…
Send 3 Characters to Fight, pays 150, plus 60 bonus for second slot and 45 bonus for third slot.
Willie, Comic Book Guy, Rev. Lovejoy and Marge have all been added to the battle front.
Here’s a reminder of all the characters that can battle at the moment….
Act 2 Personal Prizes
Bonuts are still there after prize track is complete.
Act 1 Prizes…
If you didn’t collect them all… you can still access them by tapping on the “ACT ONE PRIZES” tab in the Personal Prizes area. As you can no longer collect items for them, your only option now is to pay donuts to outright buy each one left at the point you left off at. (Just like every other event recently.)
Act 2 Crafting
Crafting remains, as it was during Act 1, for Act 2.
And yes…a crafting post will be done in the next day or so, sorry it’s not up already.
New Items in the Store..
Film Permit- Price as dropped to 60 Donuts…still not worth it…
Shining Hotel Bundle- 110 Donuts (or just the maze for 55 donuts)
Flashback Bundle #2- Gate to Nowhere, Light-up Elder God, Star Spawn, Tentacle Tree and Wavy-arm Elder God. 85 Donuts
OR Gate to Nowhere, Light-up Elder God, Tentacle Tree and Wavy-arm Elder God. 65 Donuts
And before you ask…
Here’s a list of posts we’re working on that should be up soon…
-Act 2 Calendar
-Act 2 walkthrough
-SIB for New Content
And that my friends concludes the quick rundown of Halloween Event Act 2!
Remember this is just a quick rundown…as we have time to play through Act 2 ourselves we’ll break everything down in more detail. If you need help with the basics check out the Halloween Event Page in the meantime.
Thoughts on Act 2? Just like Act 1? Excited about these prizes? How’d you do with your Act 1 prizes? Will you be buying any of the new premium items? Sound off in the comments below. You know we love hearing from you!
Too bad the covered bridge can’t be placed over water! How lame!
Is Helter Skeleter just an NPC? Thank you😊
I have 8 kids I can send to trick or treat. Each is supposed to get 2 obols. That’s 16 total every time I send them to work. When the tasks are done, I don’t get all the obols. I only came away with 10. I’ll check in 4 hours to see what is not paying out correctly
Why can’t you place the covered bridge over water? It looks silly just sitting on the grown, so I hid it behind other things to just look like piece of another building. EA needs to think about these things
I Delete all my neigbours who was played more than year ago. I need about 30 new neigbours.
Anyone who want add me : JuPPeKaNiiNi
Daily player, level 939. Money and XP bonus 926%
I’m pretty sure there’s a typo in this post. It’s the ShinNing Hotel. D’ya want ta ge’ seuued? 😉
Great work and info as always. Thanks so much for your effort!
hello! is there a known issue with the Shining Hotel? I just bought the bundle and the hotel is invisible. I can tap it and move it, but can’t see it…
I have the same issue 🙁
The same thing has happened to me! You and Fembot are the only other two people I’ve seen mention this happening to them. I created a thread on the EA forums for this issue if you guys want to comment and add your me too’s! We’ll most likely have to contact EA to get this fixed.
I can’t wait for Death, so excited!
It is odd to hear someone say that… ya know?
That was the point in my choice of phrasing.
Probably spoken by someone who,does NOT remember JFK or $0.33/ gallon gasoline.
Who doesn’t remember JFK? One of Oliver Stone’s best movies!
I feel so old. When I started driving it was $.019 a gallon. I was babysitting for $0.45 an hour…. LOL
only a few weeks ago I thought why the couch hadn’t been added as a character. it’s just as iconic as the Simpson family even if it is an inanimate object that has been anything but inanimate
When was Count Burns available? I don’t have him!
Not as yet!
Soon I hope😊
Yes soon. I think a week or two from now…
Hi! I’ve missed out on the last price of the first act… At the moment i could buy it for 325 donuts, but is this worth it? Or will it be cheaper when they offer it for a resale?
At least for me…NOT worth 325 donuts. I think it is one of those weird things that will hit storage for me after the event. Too weird.
The space marsallow is a cute little critter, but so not worth that many donuts.
Thanks for the responses! Hopefully i won’t miss out on Death too 😉
Although his “Emulate Homer” task is funny and he is a unique character to have, I don’t think it is worth that many doughnuts!
(unless you have an endless supply of doughnuts and can afford it)
Maybe wait and see if other (new premium items) become available before buying him because you still have plenty of time to decide if you really want the last prize (Space Marshmallow)
However..He may not be offered in a resale, I’m not sure how they decide what items to bring back, It may depend on how well they think ‘Ol Gil’ can persuade us to buy his items 😛
The Dark Carriage, oh I love all of this old time spooky stuff. The old bridge. This is a really fun event.
LOVE the spooky stuff!!!
I’m kind of disappointed Sherri and Teri don’t earn 4x the currency. The only reason I bought them was because of seeing them earn 4x the currency during the last Halloween event :/
Still, I’m glad I can use them in some way at all
Where is Booberella!!
Put her in the store and take my donuts!!
I’ve been waiting for them to release her also. I’ve already blown $50 this event, I’m saving the other $25 iTunes card I bought to get her & whatever else I can😊😊
To EA: please take my $, I want Boobarella! 😂😊😊
You should have gotten $50 worth in donuts instead of $25 twice.
I bought $50 at beginning of event thinking I’d be a good girl. I’m trying to still be able to honestly say I didn’t spend $100 on one event 😂😇😳🙄😜😂
LOL, “Not on one “single” event”-
so, you’re allowed to spend it on 2 events 😛
“No Homers club, we’re allowed to have 1”
Yes, Homer’s logic… 😂
Monsters still don’t seem to spawn every four hours… this morn at 12:45 then two this morn at 6:00 … it’s now 9:20 and still no new monsters have spawned. I would have expected two more by 8:45 if they were spawning on a timer. Anyone else see this?
I can’t figure out what’s going on with my monsters; at least for Act one. Most of the time I only have two monsters, but once I had eight! Then, sometimes it’s four or six – all multiples of two anyway so I guess that part’s right. I’m almost always in my game every 3-4 hours (except when sleeping) & I’ve been trying to see any patterns I’ve read about.
I’ve always seen the similar patterns in earlier events, but the spawning in my game just seems all over the place. I had the eight monsters all at once on a day I was playing a lot – they didn’t have a chance to build up. But I finished the first Act with a couple days to spare, so I’m not complaining. I’ll probably be able to ‘see’ the spawning patterns in this next Act.
But those monsters sure are LOUD, aren’t they? 😈 RachelS
I’m in the same boat in my A game. They spawn more quickly in my B game.
Yup. I wake up in the morning and find the 2 monsters I started the night before are done, and once I tap them 2 more take their place. After 7-8 hours. One day I actually had 6 at once and thought the glitch had been fixed… so I set the game aside until I had fighters ready for them, and they had vanished. Back to 2 again, or 4 at most. It is frustrating.
Lazy but quick question.
Moe’s has a THOH facade – which others also have one?
Simpsons, Kwik-E-Mart & Krusty Burger
Thanks for the quickee response !
I bought the Shining Hotel and maze, but my hotel is invisible!!! Anyone else have this problem? Also, when I try to send Lisa to tell a scary story she walks down to the campfire and it lights up, but then she’s still available for tasks. She’s just dressed in her saxophone costume. Weird…
I have the same glitch, but she doesn’t even walk to the campfire, nor does her sax costume appear.
My game won’t load! It says synchronizing, then goes back to my kindle main screen.. I’ve run cleaners, cleared cache, ugh I’m getting so frustrated!
I just realised, reading this, that I may have missed a point. When you are invited to have TWO characters attack a monster do you HAVE to have two do it? I was just sending one, as it seemed better to get 150 for two characters attacking two monsters (300 total) than 150 plus 60 on one monster (210 total). Am I wrong?
You don’t have to..
But you are wrong.
You would be right if the monsters didn’t build up and you had to clear them in 4hrs or you lose them. However, that’s not the case.
You’re wrong because the Monsters don’t disappear. Instead they build up, up to 10. You don’t have to clear them all at once. Battle the ones where you get the bonus first and then go back to the ones without the bonus. Especially since you get 2/4hrs you should have more than enough characters to succeed.
Unless you are one of those unlucky players (like me) whose monsters do not accumulate. I almost never have more than 2 at a time, even after sleeping for 7-8 hours. I don’t hard close my game, but they still rarely spawn. If I happen to be in the game finishing 2 up when 2 more appear, I have to send fighters right then, or the next time I open that screen they will be gone again. It’s very frustrating! I put a call into Tech Support last week when it started, and was hoping it would be fixed by Act 2. It’s not.
However! That sourness aside, LOL, I still made enough film to earn several rounds of bonus donuts, and I concur with the advice to send multiple characters if you have the option. 🙂
I messed up the crafting, I had some donuts left and upgraded the level of crafting not knowing it would still be so difficult to get obols! 🙁 now I can’t craft anything. Is there a way around my eager idiocy? Or am I stuck?
I think you’ll be fine if you just wait it out and keep collecting the clapboards; each new building we earn from those awards a good amount of MAG points to open up any more levels, if you need them, to give you options of what to craft. and a few of the clapboard prizes award Obols too. Just make sure you are sending every kid on trick or treating that you can, as often as you can. It’s slow going, but I’m seeing a gradual increase in Obols coming into my town.
I guess I’m just not a big Halloween person, because I find pretty much this whole prize track unexciting for me. It’s not that I think it’s bad, per se…for the right people, I think it had some good offerings.
Obviously you will not be promoting Halloween in April
(i.e. Like Christmas in July)
Lol – you’re right about that!
Although the Christmas in July thing isn’t really about my being a huge fan of Christmas….it’s more about a) trying to imagine myself away from the heat and humidity of summer, b) enjoying all of the lights and stuff all over, and, probably most of all, c) having fun seeing which of your neighbors are playing along and even discovering that some must be lurkers here because they’re playing along and you didn’t even know they hung out at Addicts!
The Christmas thing is different because, at least for those who have been playing long enough, there are Christmas skins (lights) for all of the “basic” buildings and houses, so it makes the whole town seem festive!
