Winter 2016 Prize Guide: Act 1, Prize 4 New God Mr. Burns

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The snow is falling in Springfield, which can only mean Winter has arrived in our pocket-sized towns!  And is in full swing on our devices.

In a change of pace, this Event is broken up into just 2 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 First Act you’re tasked with collecting Antlers (ico_cur_xmas2016_antlers_lg) to unlock each prize!

The fourth Act 1 Prize awarded at 35,800 ico_cur_xmas2016_antlers_lg is New God Mr. Burns, because it’s only natural that a Pagan Event would have Mr. Burns convinced people need to worship him…

2016 Winter Event 101: Crafting

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah the long awaited, Crafting post….where I give you the how tos and break down each and every item available to craft, so you don’t miss a thing!

Love it or hate it, EA has proven over the last couple of years that crafting is here to stay.  While the prizes themselves are pretty self explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”.  Crafting requires some self direction.  You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly.  Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not. And, as with all things, for some events crafting is easier than others.

Now I know some of you still have questions about what to craft, if you should craft or Level Up, what happens in future Acts…so, as we’ve done in the past, we’re here to break it all down for you.  So let’s take a look at the basics of Crafting for the entire event.

Should I Spend Donuts On Flanders’ Frozen Car?

Quick Note:Yes, Gil has returned to Springfield this morning with a Pagan Simpson Bundle.  I’ll have the full details of the deal and the SIB up soon, likely first thing tomorrow morning (I’ve got a super busy work day today). -Alissa 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The snow is falling in Springfield and that can only mean it’s Winter time in our pocket sized towns!  And of course it wouldn’t be an event in Springfield without premium items in our stores, just tempting us to spend sprinkles on them!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks as awesome as this because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Flanders’ Frozen Car to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this frozen disaster to your Springfield…
