Winter 2016 Prize Guide: Act 2, Prize 3 Ba’al Pit

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 Second Act you’re tasked with collecting Brooches (ico_cur_xmas2016_brooch_lg) to unlock each prize!

The third Act 2 Prize awarded at 23,500 ico_cur_xmas2016_brooch_lg is the Ba’al Pit, because sometimes you need to just be a kid again….


So let’s take a closer look at this third prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…

Once you’ve collected 23,500 ico_cur_xmas2016_brooch_lg you’ll automatically be awarded the Ba’al Pit and you’ll see this message popup:


And you’ll have the option to place it in your Springfield immediately or store it in your inventory for later.  Remember if you store it you’ll have to go back into your inventory to retrieve it.

The Ba’al does come with some an short questline and tasks for both Bart and Milhouse (non-visual).  Here’s a look at it now..

Ba’al Pit
Milhouse starts


Milhouse: Look at that dumb ball pit!
Bart: Yeah, ball pits are for stupid babies! We outgrew those years ago!
Milhouse: WAIT! It’s not a ball put, it’s a “Ba’al” pit!
Bart: Then that’s TOTALLY different. Whee!
Place the Ba’al Pit
Make Milhouse Play in the Ba’al Pit- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Make Bart Play in the Ba’al Pit- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Bart: Whee!
Milhouse: Whee!
Lisa: Fellas, I don’t know how to tell you this, but a ball pit’s a ball pit, no matter what they call it.

Here are some quick facts about the Ba’al Pit:

  1. Ba’al Pit – a brief lol (courtesy of Milhouse and Bart); an I hope EA adds other Springfield Characters (ie give all those Kids in Springfield a chance to play Ba’al (lol) – especially a Task for Flanders Kids (Rod & Tod) condemning the worship of Ba’al (c’mon EA, here is another example of getting it half right – again – because Characters seen doing a Task is priceless) 😜

    Have a Ba’al this New Year’s Everyone

  2. So, I’ve got like 1500 crafting currency, but nothing i want to craft 😡

    Only things I liked were unique items you can only craft one of.

    Who needs 15 huts?

    • Crafting produces brooches, which can earn you bonuts. Besides that, items you craft today may be worth % later. I am crafting windmills (to use in Krustyland and chicken coops.

  3. The pit is nothing special, animation is very subtle; however, one thing I am finding frustrating is that I have a ton of chicken fingers (over 1,200 left after I have done all my sacrifices) and the ratio of what the donation require seems very biased in Act 2, toward books.

    • I don’t think it is biased. I have a ton of books instead.
      If you click in the “x” once a day, you can swap one of those sacrifices.

      • I just did this and it “replaced” it with the exact same thing *sigh*

        I didn’t have this problem in act 1 but act 2 is killing me…I’ve currently got 5 books and over a thousand chicken fingers.

  4. Josephine Kick@$$

    They took all the ball pits out in the play lands at Mickey D’s & B King’s here. Said they were too hard to clean & were unsafe.
    Boy am I glad my granddaughters never got hurt or contracted some mysterious tropical disease in one while growing up!/end sarcasm😂

  5. Did anyone have a problem with No Pain, No Pagain Pt.3, where the pagans need to exchange gifts? I cant get any further.:(

  6. Is it worth buying more two story outhouses. Do extras give a bonus or just the original building . Thanks in advance for any replays 🇬🇧

  7. It’s lol silly
    It earns you $ and XP
    It’s not that big (doesn’t take up space)
    Bart & Milhouse play in it (maybe other kids will, too … in time)

    How ’bout that Ravencrow Neversmiles (she’s missing that clove cigarette) 😅

  8. Game.still.not.working


    Pretty sure that was Bart, not Lisa.

  10. Anybody notice a gain in %? I have a 5% increase. Anyone know what changed?

    • Satans anvil

    • Check the list of items that have recently been re-released…chances are, something you already own has gone premium and they’ve added a bonus % to it.

    • Satan’s Anvil (the giant mountain from the Stonecutter event) I believe.

    • Don’t know but sometimes they don’t mention the bonus in the store description or the prize description. The inventory usually tracks it, though. So if you have added anything or pulled anything out of storage since the last time you checked your bonus, try storing them briefly and look at the meter or check the inventory description. Good idea to check the meter before adding anything also.

      You also can get a bonus from rising higher in the separate conformometer ratings, but I don’t know how to estimate that. 5% would be a big leap, I would guess.

      Plus certain Heights buildings bring a hidden nice XP bonus, but that wouldn’t affect the meter reading.

    • Could be this if you have it
      Placing Satan’s Anvil now yields 225 XP instead of 5000 and has a 5% Bonus $ and XP.
      The other updates include Little Helper Ralph and Stupid Sexy Flanders jobs are now premium. And lard lad donuts 🍩 task are premium . Other updates are just corrections or tweaks for available items and dialogue.
      Also Fir is Murder Christmas Tree and Phone-Henge Kiosk’s event currency reward was fixed.dont know about this on because I still get cash 💰 money from them not ever currency .
      Disclaimer . I don’t know the reliability of my information lol 😂 so pls correct if wrong

    • Thanks all, if they just updated (12/22/16) Santa Anvil to 5%, that would be it.
