December 21st Start: Act 2, Part 2… (Questline and New Stuff in the Store)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy Winter Solstice! Ah yes, today (in the Northern Hemisphere) is the shortest day/longest night of the year.  And it’s also the point where we can all appreciate it gaining 1 minute of light each day..until Summer Solstice.  Who doesn’t long for those longer days of summer?! (Except for our friends in the Southern Hemisphere…since you’re enjoying them now..)

As was teased at the end of the first part of Act 2…you’d have to stay tuned on December 21st for the next (and conclusion) of the Winter Act 2 questline:


Well it’s December 21st and Part 2 of Act 2 has arrived! Let’s breakdown the new questline and items in our stores…

I’ll have a full breakdown of the ins and outs of the Mystery Gifts later today.

Again I’ll be back this afternoon with a full breakdown of the boxes, what they do & what’s inside.  And Patric will have another post for you tonight about what’s inside and what’s worth getting..and what’s not.

And that’s it my friends, the new content to unlock in our games today!  And with that I’m Audi 5000 for now…

  1. Can anyone help please? I’ve got a quest line ‘the princess nerd part 2. Make ice princess Martin show Lisa his palace’ I have always had ice princess Martin but not his place so surely this is impossible to complete? I’m confused!!


  2. Satyr Willie is definitely “satire” Willie 😅

    Think I got room for some Icebergs (stay Festive everyone)


  3. Christopher Jensen

    I’m kinda sad about this, but I just stopped playing. It’s so “meh.”


  4. 2.5 % bonus for a 10 donuts spend !!!
    Got to be the best offer yet even if it is a mistake !!!
    Think of Red Indians ?


  5. More things to go in very limited amount of ocean and way too close to shore line. Please get a ,enthusiasts of Springfield water squares add on.Need more sprinkles as a freemium player there are many things I cannot get, unless they give us more time to aquire the gifts. Thanks for reading.
    Still easier to play without spending money than 9999 out of 10k games available.


  6. I’m somewhat tempted to get the duff arena this time around. It still seems massively expensive, but with the included vouchers I can get a whole other item for free from it. Hrmmm. Decisions.

  7. While new land is always welcome, is there any chance in the future that we get more ocean spaces? With all of the over-sized items in SH, plus all the new islands, etc., there’s no room left for expansion.


  8. Considering the icebergs (love the otters), but not sure if I’ll need to store them almost immediately. After the snow is gone, they’ll have no place in my ocean area with all the beach stuff (unless they melt into islands…that would be cool).

    • If I get them, it’ll be because I’ve decided to set up a whole zoo area near the shoreline (where a lot of my “family fun” stuff has traditionally gone), in which case I’ll put the icebergs near-ish to the shore, with piers leading out to them as outdoor “polar” zoo exhibits and the assumption will be that the ice is manmade and artificially supported. One thing I’m wondering though…are there any kind of water “fences”? I can’t think of any, but it would be nice to be able to fence in those exhibits that are in the water.


      • The small cash iceberg might work as a sort of fencing. Other than that, there’s the jet skis or boats, which don’t really look like fences.

      • I was hoping I could place them on a lake I made next to the petting zoo, but no go. Would take a major relocate to get that area to the beach, but nothing is impossible…hmmmmm.

      • Rock jetties would be nice for the ocean…could help delineate different areas. Or a line of pier posts would work as a water fence.
        Maybe we’ll see new items by the summer?

  9. Anyone finding Lisa especially annoying this event? She wanted the Pagan festival yet it seems she’s the only one not having fun and being the most intolerant.


  10. I started this game in the middle of the Christmas event, 2013. I have been coveting my neighbor’s reindeer ever since. Tonight, I shall sleep easy knowing that I now have a freakin’ HERD of reindeer. I received Ravenclaw Neversmiles this morning too. Best event ever!!!

  11. Got a reindeer, a land-octopus pen, and the polar bear. I might get the other iceberg too at some point.


  12. I spent 200 donuts and got something I wanted. Unfortunately, I won’t spend another 50 on the last item in the first box.


  13. So I won the ba’al pit yesterday and there’s a task to send bart and milhouse there. Do I need to pull them away from earning event currency or can I (annoyingly) leave that task for later?


  14. I had passed yup on the zoo items previously, but, between the rebates offered and the tickets earned, looks like I’ll be purchasing the pieces for one!


  15. “It’s better to save the vouchers for Gold or Platinum presents if you don’t have the items there!” Too late for me but hope you consider this.

  16. There are OTTERS! What’s better than OTTERS?
