Simpsons Around The World Calendar – Act II

calendar-actii-main

I think by now we have all figured out that the initial panic associated with the printing of the calendar is unfounded.  It really just takes logging on every 4 hours, for days on end, with no relief, to get everything you want (if that includes earning Bonuts).

I think you will find that Act II is achievable and believable, which is the benchmark of setting any reasonable goal (if you believe the motivational strategies of the  Power of Positive Thinking guru, W. Clement Stone).

So..BELIEVE IT…and ACHIEVE IT!!
And yes… I DID start with the dates on the day the event started…because I am not one to coddle people. I am a pragmatist and know the value of a little adrenaline burst to get you tapping.  So GET TAPPING!

And again, for those who prefer the “Non-Gregorian” approach to calendars…and just like all of the facts lined up in a row… a spreadsheet version.

Have Fun. Reach your goals. Be POSITIVE!!

  1. For you OCD tappers, here’s my strategy:

    First thing in the morning, clear the board with the Unemployment office and the airport. Once that’s done, send your 3 non premium characters off on their flights. If a premium character has the answer – send him off on a 12 hour task. Send non premium characters on 5 and 10 minute tasks. I especially like Eddie and Lou – Lard Lad tasks. Barbarian also has a 5 minute task. Bart, Luigi, Hibbert, Cletus, Nelson, Mrs. Krabappel, all have 10 minute tasks. Send them on their short tasks. Grab ~30 non premium tasks and send them on a 1 hour tasks. Send the rest via the Unemployment office on 12 hour tasks. It’s important NOT to touch the airport at this point until your 10 minute tasks are up.

    Once you’ve cleared those tasks, now you can open up the airport and send not Lou or Eddie, ensuring you never send the last slot. This is why Lou and Eddie are useful because they can be sent on a 5 minute task and the airport will open up 5 new slots if they’re the last person assuming you have people roaming around doing nothing. The list of people who can fly will NOT repopulate until you tap the airport. This means you could have zero people roaming and as long as you don’t tap the airport until you have roamers, you won’t be in purgatory for 4 hours.

    Now as most of you have figured out, as long as you don’t send the last slot out, you can continue to send someone every 20 minutes. However, the timer isn’t exactly accurate and if you time it right, you’ll end up with two tickets every 20 minutes! This isn’t consistent so you have to play with it a bit but basically if you watch it tick from 0 seconds to 20 minutes, you’ll get your ticket. And then if you close the app, sometime in the next 20 minutes you’ll get another ticket. Currently I get one around the 15 minute mark if I close out of the game after I get my initial ticket.

    Finally, I force myself to bed by sending my last slot so I have no choice but to close the game out lol.

  2. I hate having idle characters, so that made the multiple travelers technique very difficult…. until Sophie became my MVP. As long as she is available, I can send everyone else on 4- or 8- hour tasks and she remains behind to “hold” a place at the airport. Prior to that, I start some short Springfield Heights tasks, so in 30s-20m, I have a dozen or so free characters. Once they’re done, I send Sophie to practice violin, my list is refreshed, and I can log in to cycle them every hour with most of my characters out of the way. Sometimes I forget to start SH tasks, but all I have to do is pick up and replace a few highly populated buildings to shake some people loose (Moe’s, City Hall, hair salon, etc.)

    (Actually, you can wait up to 79 minutes and have a quick 4-ticket cycle. Use at least one of your 3 tickets, and the timer will have less than a minute to go for the next available ticket.)

  3. Unlimited sending of characters in flights to earn pins. Just have to wait for plane tickets to regenerate. All or most characters in game need to be available for this to work. When you send 4 out of 5 people away at the airport, you should have 1 left, send them no matter who it is on a 1 hour local task. The game gives me 5 new characters to send on flights. Send all but 1 and repeat. Make sure the very first person you send is the correct task so it can be completed. You have pins coming in constantly. I just figured it out so when bonut time comes around, we’ll see what we can get. I sent my characters all on a 1 hour task and it won’t let me send anyone else until the next day

  4. The cover picture for this post really made me laugh. When we lived in India there was a billboard of a gorgeous Indian actress kissing a sumo wrestler. My son, who was about 5 at the time, said, “Who would love a giant man in a diaper?”

    • Interesting… I only get a maximum of 3 tickets.

      • There is a daily price which gives you 6 plane tickets, so the maximum number of tickets is 9.

        • I’ve sent more than 9 a day. I usually sent 5-6 at a time: the 3 you have tickets for, and then I hold on to 2-3 characters waiting for the tickets to recharge. 4 hours later you can send the next 3 characters away, and again hold on to 2-3 characters.

          I still send most of my characters on jobs because jobs lead to leveling up bonuts.

          • That is how I managed to send nine characters at the same time. The three usual ticket and six bonus tickets.

          • Ok my comment below is moot. This somewhat explains where you are coming from. @Philips technique will up that to over 15 simultaneous plane passengers if you log in constantly like I do…

            The harvest of the passengers will be scattered over time. Maybe moderators could do an advanced techniques post with events on how to maximize things like this for us obsessive players 🙂

        • Not sure I follow your math. You are constantly generating tickets up to a cap of 3. Once you dip below that cap you get your next ticket every prorated 20 minutes. So if you are in the middle of your timer you get one in 10 minutes and then another one in 20 minutes.

      • You start with 5 character that you could Send out. Send the correct character to the correct location and you should have 4 left. Send out 3 more until there is 1 character left to be sent out. When you have the last one, send them on a 1 hour local task. It doesn’t matter who. That should restock your airport characters up to 5. You’ll just have to wait on plane tickets to generate. All your characters must be available do get the best options. Hope this makes sense

    • @Philip – I confirmed this works. Keep your last plane passenger and send him on a local task. The system will open up new people for plane rides. Thanks for this. I will be abusing, er… using this technique to get bonuts. I was disappointed in phase 1 of this event as the cap for bonuts was so high I could only generate 1 round of bonuts. Usually I get 3 or 4 at the end of prize collection per phase.

      • Yes I’ve been doing it all day! I just lost the airport people by sending all my characters on a 1 hour local task. It didn’t come back so I’ll have to wait until the new day starts for it to reset. As long as you have your characters available, you can have unlimited plane rides. I’ve had more than 20 going on at once. About 4-5 every hour.

  8. Hmm. Just got the points for the Osaka Squishy, game says it’s available, but when I tap, it’s back to the town with no Squid (it still shows as available in the prize list). Ideas?
