Winter Is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Winter Event Ends TOMORROW December 30th at 0800 GMT (3am EST)

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.


As far as what is going to happen AFTER the Event… well, we can’t know… until it is over. Lol. Until then all we can do is speculate. So, patience. We all have to verify what happens after together.

Now as far as to what is going with the Event, here is a brief rundown…

  • Questlines linked directly to the progression of the Event will go. Like the Main Questlines that pulled you through all 2 Acts.
  • However, the questlines linked directly the the prizes you’ve won will remain. (so Ravencrow, Snowsuit Maggie etc)
  • The event removal will require an app store update to fully remove it from your game.  So don’t panic when 0800 GMT hits and the event isn’t out of your game…  It will require an app store update to remove everything.  Usually those hit around 1-2pm (EDT)

I know some of you still try to push that last few minutes of collection as far as you can. If you turn OFF the auto update feature in your App Market, you may give yourself an extra day or so just know that ANY time after the 30th is borrowed time and you are doing so at YOUR OWN RISK. EA can force the update at anytime after the 30th and make you update. So use any extra time wisely and get what you need before you have to remove the Event completely.

So tap those last few Pagans and relax and wait to see what EA has next in store for us.

Are you sad to see the event go?  Or ready for it to finally be over?  How did you do with the prizes?  Get everything you wanted?  What are you hoping to see next?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. How do I clear the Princess Nerd quest from my taskbar? The ice palace no longer is available….


  2. I don’t know how many others feel the same way but then again this is just my opinion.. I just felt like this year’s winter event was just kind of…meh. I mean I’m not complaining; I acquired all the prizes and stuff but it felt…somewhat boring. I felt like playing along just for the sake of it…Maybe something was lacking, I don’t know, but it was alright I guess..

  3. Any SIBs for the remaining winter items like Giant Snow Globe or Ice Princess Castle?


  4. I have a general question to the henge: was there ever a quest for it which triggered the animation where the stones and the center pentagram are glowing? Either I overlooked it or was it cut out by EA after the outrage?
    For I only saw it during the active animation glitch…


  5. I was happy to see a pagan event in the place of Christmas, since Christmas is just one big commercial, and it really freaks out the busy bodies. This event was boring though. Apparently all based on a brand new episode? So none of the references stuck. The only thing worth working for was the Maggie costume, and they made you grind the masa for that one. I really disliked that dumb elf thing, and the pagans were so boring. Just shambling through town. Just little black dots with no personality.
    Did EA already give away all the cool Simpsons stuff? I know I’m tapped for references. I need time to organize my town anyway. DI’m probably going to dump most of the pagan stuff into storage.

  6. Well, literally ten minutes before the timer ended, I used about a dozen donuts to get the last prize in my secondary town since the grace period after timers end has been shorter this year. Glad I did, too, looks like there was zero grace period.

  7. I am surprised how many people come on here to complain! The Simpsons do and can lampoon whatever they want, and (my and) your Christmas is fair game! And how dare they stop the event right at the timer?! And make you play somewhat consistantly to earn the top prize?! The nerve … I mean- I’m all for constructive criticism (like the excessive play needed a couple events ago to complete) but let’s keep some perspective. They needed a new angle after 4 or 5 prior Christmas events. The give out donuts now like nobody’s business and need to maintain a revenue stream. Let’s just cut some slack here folks!
    I do have one question- did they change the timer for the mystery gifts or did I see the timer and just assume it matched the timer for the rest of the event? I bought a gold present last night assuming it would go away and I should have held out to earn enough vouchers for platinum. Anyone know?


    • Nope – the time remaining was always different for the mystery gifts than for the Act 2 stuff. The only question folks were wondering about earlier was whether that was a mistake or if they really did mean that they’d continue the mystery gifts (and gnome) after the rest of the event ended. Turns out, they meant it! 🙂

      (Oh, and I agree with you about the complaining thing…I do think that EA has done some things that were complaint-worthy, but not nearly as many things as some people think it’s “fair” to complain about.)


  8. First thanks to the moderators of this site for going through all the comments. Act two ended in my game just when the in game clock said it would. I had chosen not participate in the act two prize track. I do not always want everything they push out. Feel it is personal choice.
    Am happy with the prizes I got from the mystery boxes, which I probably would have spent doughnuts on if offered differently.
    Anyway to each their own, hope all have Happy New Year.

  9. So what are we supposed to do about the Ice Princess Martin quest (Princess Nerd) that forces us to spend doughnuts to buy the Ice Palace to complete it? A lot of people don’t have enough doughnuts or don’t want to blow them just to complete a questline (that we don’t know where it’s going). I asked about this a week ago or so & have seen several other people asking the same thing.

    If we don’t buy the Ice Palace, are we stuck with the task in our task bar forever? I hate having unfinished tasks in there.



  10. I’m usually ahead of the game. I needed Maggie and the final craft. I scooped up Maggie this morning on a whim and thank goodness. The final craft is gone and I only needed a couple more. I wasn’t expecting a smooth cutoff. Not even an option to buy with donuts. Geez

    So I got everything in and everything in it that you could for doing daily tasks. But when I finished yesterday’s daily tasks it showed today’s is being a little gold thing but it told me I had already won everything even though I had a little lock on it. Just wondering what was behind that lock
