Turbo Tappin’ Thanksgiving 2016: Main Questline and Prizes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Turkey Hunting season in Springfield!  Gather the masses to track down the elusive Bigclaw!

Of course, as with all events, a questline comes with it to help move us through the ins and outs of the event…and unlock all of the prizes.  As was mentioned on the rundown post this mini event is similar to the previous mini-events (like Homer’s Chiliad and the Fire Department before it), in that you’ve got to complete various tasks to unlock the prizes.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just how to unlock all the fun Camping/Hunting/Thanksgiving inspired prizes and be the best darn Bigclaw Hunter you can be…

turbotapping-dangerous-game

Before we get into the walkthrough there are a couple of things I want to point out…
1) You have to be at Level 5 to see this event.  So it’s basically open to ALL Tappers.
2) Pelts (indicator_themostdangerousgame_coonskinhat) do NOT carry over to the next part.  So if you over collect for part 1, it will not carry over to part 2.  You’ll start part to back at 0 Pelts.  (at least this is how it worked for me today…)  However, you can stagger, so you’ll get a head start on the next part if you won’t need quite as many Pelts as you can get.

And now on with the walkthrough….

  5. Howdy Tappers.

    Err…did I miss a post about Bigclaw? Once I began the Flush out Bigclaw stage I got a pop up that he will appear after “rescuing” animals. I tapped 3-4 and Lo! He appeared. Then another pop up to tap him 3 times. Like Mongo from a the Wild West, tapping Bigclaw turns him red, flashing and off he runs! Only to POOF after the third tap. The ensuing pelts scrolled too quickly for me to catch how many were awarded, but it was more than one. And I have gotten him twice so far.

    I am guessing this will be Bigclaw’s post event mini game, except substitute pills for pelts. Haven’t seen anyone else post about this, and have reread the event posts. But if indeed this has been covered feel free to delete or omit this comment Alissa.

  8. Okay, does anyone else find it odd that when you tap on animals to rescue, the snake will coil up and vanish, the bunny will sit up and vanish BUT, the turkey EXPLODES in a puff of smoke and you have feathers floating down?

    Like

    • It’s definitely amusing that “rescuing” the turkeys seems to explode them, and it’s the result of EA repurposing animations from previous events, likely to save time/effort and keep the app size down by not adding new animations.

      The turkey is from Thanksgiving 2015, when the event was all about eating turkey and tapping them collected drumsticks so it made much more sense then that they “popped.”

      You might notice some snakes get a telltale ring of stars around their heads when you tap them because they come from Whacking Day, and the bunnies are from Easter.

  9. Once you reach the tapping wild animals stage, you can click on the Pelt on the task sidebar and then click on “Do it” to have the game take you to an animal. If you don’t have any more in your town, a pop up will say so. I was having trouble finding them (especially the snakes), so this really helps!

    Like

    • An SIB is always written for premium building/character combos; you can always count on Alissa to post them. The more time sensitive things like the event introduction and run through, Turbo Tapping, crafting (when it’s involved in an event,) etc are always posted first because they are of greatest need for the majority of players.

      I hope this helps.

  14. Will extra pelts carry over from one prize leven to the next? In the past, with some events if you collected enough currency to obtain the next prize the counter would reset to zero. For example, if you need only 20 pelts and you collect more than that from several characters at once, the extra currency would be lost. I’d rather plan a little bit ahead than tie up some characters for three hours if their payout gets wasted…

    • You’ll find that the answer to your question is in the post. Just before the walkthrough starts where I say “Before we get into the walkthrough there are a couple of things I want to point out…”

      Pelts do NOT carry over.
      Once animals start roaming, after you have the RV, you can click on them for pelts.
      Animals seem to generate every ten to twelve minutes, making this series of quests a silly obtainable. 6:45 local time, I have 75 of 190 required for the Animal Sanctuary. I should achieve it within twelve hours.
      So, plan accordingly. Stagger sending characters, or push through and get it done.

      Hi Neighboreeno,
      So this is a first for me, although ive been reading about this being fairly common…every time i attempt to enter your town as well as my other neighbors, it knocks me out of the game. Worked perfectly for halloween so i guess if it was going to do this to me, now is the time when neighbor visits dont count towards the prizes. Hoping this is fixed by Christmas, if not, i will be tapping in your Krustyland.
      Hope to be back in your main town soon,

  17. Most of this Thanksgiving Event looks fun, it just feels odd not to see the return of The Simpson’s pet turkey, Sacagawea Lisa, Puritan Flanders (I don’t care for NPC’s, but perhaps EA has thought of a reason why to keep one in the game this time) 😉

  19. I saw the Black Friday deals on a spoiler site. I will NOT reveal the details (as per this blog’s rules), but if what is currently posted there is REALLY ALL that will be there on Black Friday , I can honestly say that this year has the worst, most disappointing Black Friday TSTO deals EVER!!!! The last 2 years were MUCH BETTER!!!!

    Feeling somewhat disappointed & cheated because I had been boarding my Bo-nuts & thought I would go crazy & finally buy some of the premium characters that I have been coveting, on a discount/rebate : ((((((

    Really REALLY hoping that Alissa’s general statement “EA can change anything, anytime they want” turns out true this time, and EA offers some more & BETTER deals on Black Friday
