Winter 2016 Act 2 is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to the wee early morning hours…at least here on the East Coast and Act 2 of the Winter 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 Willie.  This will be followed by two 6s tasks, one for Lisa and then one for Homer.  You’ll then unlock a new skin for Willie, and that’ll be followed by a 12hr task for Lovejoy, 1hr task for Willie, and 3 Anti Pagans.

Act 2 runs until December 30th

Just what does Act 2 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look…pagan-homer-winter-2016

New Prize Currency for Act 2.

indicator_xmas2016_brooch Brooches 

So the ability to earn Antlers is now gone.  Your counter prize track for Act 2 has reset to zero because you have zero Brooches.  So forget about the Antlers and now it’s time to start over with Brooches.

You’ll earn Brooches very similar to how you earned Antlers in Act 1….


-Trade Ins at Spring Henge indicator_xmas2016_brooch Earning Varies
-Tapping Pagans in your Springfield and Your Neighbors (Earns 15indicator_xmas2016_brooch)
-Daily Challenges (indicator_xmas2016_brooch Earning Varies)
-Spirit Tree, if Purchased
-Simpsons Dancing Around the Pagan Bonfire (if Purchased)
-Placing craftable items (indicator_xmas2016_brooch earning varies)

Pagan Changes

The Pagans have a new look…

paganmom_act2_tap_image_17 pagandaughter_act2_tap_image_13 pagandad_act2_tap_image_13

And they’ll yield 15 indicator_xmas2016_brooch, 4 ico_cur_xmas2016_runestones_lg and 1 ico_cur_xmas2016_guiltdust_lg per tap.  And for those curious..because I never post this for Act 1…they spawn at a rate of ever 10 minutes, there’s a max of 15 allowed in your town with a bank of 15.

Offering (Springhenge Changes)

Catnip and Figurines are no longer available to earn.

Instead for Act 2 you’ll have two new items to collect for offerings to trade in..

ico_cur_xmas2016_chickenfingers_lgChicken Fingers


ico_cur_xmas2016_bookofshadows_lgBook of Shadows

These items can be collected via tasks in the game, except they’ll take places at new locations Springfield Library (Book of Shadows) and Moe’s Tavern (Chicken Fingers).

4hr task at each location, 15 for freemium, 25 for premium payout

The characters are pretty much the same…

Here’s who can earn the Book of Shadows:
Crazy Cat Lady
Comic Book Guy
And the Wicans (premium purchase)

And here’s who can earn Chicken Fingers:
Patches and Poor Violet

Satyr Willie

charactersets_willie_satyr You’ll get him for free once you complete the first two 6s tasks with Lisa and Homer at the start of Act 2.

Gnome Changes


The Gnome now pays out ico_cur_xmas2016_bookofshadows_lg ico_cur_xmas2016_chickenfingers_lg, rates are the same and based on your Gnome Level.

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.

You can still earn Runestones for crafting by tapping Pagans and completing hand-ins at Springhenge daily.  You’ll also earn some via the prize track.

New Items in the Store..

sidebar_xmas2016_paganmembershipPagan Membership- Price as dropped to 30 Donuts…not worth it…


charactersets_thewiccangirlsThe Wiccans- 110 Donuts (Character, some of you are reporting a bonus % with them.  If you see one, it’s a mistake.  They’re characters so they shouldn’t come with one.  Odds are if you see it, it’ll be taken away.  So don’t buy them based on a bonus %.  Again they’re Characters.)


unlock_babygeraldBaby Gerald- 100 Donuts

unlock_mrburns_whitewitchWhite Witch Burns- 60 Donuts, Should I Buy

unlock_kingwinter kingwinterscave_menuKing Winter and His Cave- 175 Donuts, with a 75 Donut Rebate. Net 100 Donuts, Should I Buy

Important to note this is just phase one of Act 2, lots more stuff coming on December 21st for Act 2…so if you don’t see something you thought was coming, it’s likely because it hasn’t hit yet. And is expected to hit on the 21st…

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 more!

However, keep in mind today is Sunday.  So we will not have any more postings today, beyond the Open Thread.  More content will come your way tomorrow, as it’s still important for us to take the day and spend time with our families.

And that my friends concludes the quick rundown of the Winter 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 Winter 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!

  1. So upset they didn’t bring back the Christmas lights as an option to buy for the houses in Springfield. I didn’t get them last year and was really looking forward to it since then! Stupid EA and their pagan update. I wanted real Christmas stuff 😦


  2. FYI, you get a free Christmas tree (.65% bonus) during Maggie Star event.


  3. Have 1500 chicken fingers. All the exchanges keel coming up as spell books. Any ideas how to balance out?


    • Other than using your one-per-day dismissal and hope that it doesn’t just replace it with another spell book exchange (which is what’s been happening to me) and using your Wiccans (if you gave them) to make spell books instead of chicken fingers, there’s really nothing you can do. I feel your pain though…after being able to keep things relatively balanced through the event, I’ve been in a bad streak just like yours.


    • At one point I had over 800 chicken fingers. I started only using small offerings and the number of chicken fingers being used increased greatly. Now I only have 40 chicken fingers.


  4. Whenever I have tried to tap the gnome all I ever get is an arrow in the top left hand corner. I can’t do anything. Does anyone know why. I can’t seem to upgrade but yet as an anonymous player it does stuff that mine won’t. Like quests, etc. I have been playing for three years


  5. Just throwing this out here. I just finished getting all the crafting prizes. Which ones do you think will turn into premium items (i.e give %bonus) in the future?
