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:

I’ll have a full breakdown of the ins and outs of the Mystery Gifts later today.
The quick version is you earn Gift Vouchers (ico_cur_xmas2016_giftreceipt_lg) from the Gnome AND premium items purchased.  You can use those Gift Vouchers to purchase either a Silver, Gold or Platinum Gift Box.  Each box contains a returning items from Christmases past!

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.

  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.
