Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
As I predicted yesterday, the Thanksgiving mini update has arrived!
Note: If you have not yet downloaded the Halloween Removal Update from the App Store (which arrived yesterday), you will need to do that before you can see the Thanksgiving event…
Things get started in Springfield with some Auto-Dialogue from Brockman followed by a series of tasks (6s) to get things going. Task order is Homer; Cletus (and Homer); Flanders, Cletus & Apu…this will then kick things off for you.
‘ll be back with more in a bit…BUT you will be awarded a bunch of tress for free to set the stage for the Hunt, after you’ve completed the initial series of 6s tasks…. (It does not appear that you’ll need to place these to move on.)
More details below…
Event Ends November 30th. Which likely means we’ll see Christmas December 1st…of course they can still wait till the following week as well. Just my speculation…
So as I mentioned above you’ll need to complete a series of 6 second tasks in order to get the event started. But once started you’ll launch the event questline, and the new items in the store.
This event is laid out like the previous mini events we’ve seen over the last year + (Most recently Springfield Games and the 2016 Season Premiere Tie-In). Where you follow a series of tasks to unlock prizes. The prizes could be items, they could be cahracters or they could just be animated tasks for existing characters. We’ll cover the rundown of how you unlock each prize in the Turbo Tappin’ Post. First, let’s get started with the new items that appear in the store…
Let’s start with the new items in the store…
Returning Items at a Discount..well a rebate
Bear Cave- 100 Donuts, with a 50 donut Rebate. So Net 50 Donuts. Offers a .75% bonus on all cash and XP Should I Buy (Not actually covered in snow. The file image I have is from last Christmas, showing the snow)
Hot Springs- 45 Donuts, with a 15 Donut Rebate. So Net 30 Donuts. Offers a 2.25% bonus on all cash and XP. Should I Buy
Fever Cabin- 30 Donuts, with a 10 Donut Rebate. So Net 20 Donuts. Offers a .25% bonus on all cash and XP. Should I Buy
Springfield Falls- 90 Donuts, with a 30 Donut Rebate. So Net 60 Donuts. Should I Buy
Wild West Film Set & Buck McCoy- 150 Donuts, with a 50 Donut Rebate. So net 100 Donuts. Should I Buy (And yes, 100 donuts for character/building combo is usually a buy in my book) This will not appear until AFTER you’ve completed The Most Dangerous Game Pt. 2, Buck McCoy returns to the store. You can purchase him to help with the earning.
So before you ask….
Yes, it does appear that there will be Black Friday Deals. Black Friday starts Friday November 25th (the day after the US Thanksgiving). It also appears that there will be a special new item offered for Cyber Monday. Cyber Monday is the Monday after Thanksgiving in the US, so Monday November 28th. Which means you can review the offerings for both days BEFORE this event ends. Which will allow you to make a premium decision on the new items…without worrying you’ll miss something.
Now let’s talk about the prizes…. (and again I’ll have the breakdown on how to get each one in the Turbo Tappin’ post, which will be up later today)
Much like every other mini event you’ll earn the (event currency) by completing character tasks via the prizetrack/questline. (the key characters are Homer, Apu, Lisa, Moe, Flanders & Cletus. Some others will join and leave, but those are the main ones to be sure and keep free) However with this event, once you’ve completed the Most Dangerous Game Pt. 2 you’ll also be able to earn by tapping Wild Animals you may find in Springfield..
And that’s it my friends! Once you’ve completed the questline, as has been the theme with various other events, there will be a little game to play where you can earn Cash, XP or the chance for Pharmaceuticals (for SH) up to 3 times/day. I’ll cover that in the Turbo Tappin’ post. For now you’ve got all of the details you’ll need to move through the event.
Remember the event ends on November 30th (2 weeks).
