Halloween 2016 Prize Guide: Act 2, Prize 7 Death

Note: Yes a new (AWESOME) Premium Item has hit the stores early this morning…while I was sleeping…I’ll have a post on it up a little later today..

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Halloween in our pocket-size Springfields!  Yes that magical time of the year when our towns turn dark, our water becomes mucky and there are monsters everywhere to battle.  Just like October in every other suburban town in America, no?

The Halloween Event is in full swing on our devices and it’s full of creepy decorations, buildings and characters…all designed to get us into the Halloween spirit!

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts, with each Act containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act.  Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the Second Act you’re tasked with collecting Clapboards (ico_cur_thoh2016_clapboard_lg) to unlock each prize!

The Seventh (and final) Act 2 Prize is awarded at 61,400 ico_cur_thoh2016_clapboard_lg is Death…because who hasn’t enjoyed saying they’re ____ hours from Death?


So let’s take a closer look at this seventh prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…

Once you’ve collected 61,400ico_cur_thoh2016_clapboard_lg you’ll automatically be awarded Death and you’ll see this message popup:


And you’ll have the option to place or store him.  Remember if you store him you’ll have to go back into your inventory later to retrieve him.

Once place you’ll see his character unlock message appear..


And he’s part of the Treehouse of Horror XXVII Character Collection


Death will come with his own questline, which will start up for you once you place him in Springfield.  Here’s a look at the Turbo Tappin’ version of the questline….

Beyond that it’s just waiting for Act 3 to start on Tuesday….

  1. I’m not sure where to post this, but one of my neighbors springfielders are all zombies! How’d they get them like that?

  2. Is anyone else having issues with the site? I have multiple Springfields, and have not been able to get into any of them for the past hour. I’m getting different error messages (not the ones with invalid log in or password), and now, I’m getting he Bart screen “cannot connect to server” on all of them. I play on multiple iPhone 7s and iPad Airs, and am getting the same issue across the board.

  3. Anyone else get forced out, required to sign back in, but getting an error message?

  4. Wow, these are the lamest prizes ever! Covered Bridge? Monster Couch? Who wanted all these weird items?

    “I am Death!”

    Wow, this is the best Tapped Out event ever!
