Episode Tie-In, In-Game Update: 22 for 30 (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well that didn’t take very long….we’ve got ourselves a fun little in-game update.  This particular update is a tie-in for Sunday’s new episode of The Simpsons, “22 for 30″, and will kick off for you in your game automatically (after the download) with some dialogue from Skinner & Milhouse.

This will be followed by 4hr tasks for the kids of Springfield…

Back with more as I go through it…More details, including the questline, below

Remember this is an in-game update, but you won’t see it unless you’ve downloaded the removal update for Around the World that hit App Stores yesterday.  And no, this hasn’t fixed the missing tourists yet…

So this episode tie-in contains a couple of new items, 2 premium 1 free, and loads of returning content from events past.  Here’s a look:

New Stuff…

Outdoor Half-Court- Free, unlocks with the questline.  6×7.  Animated job for Milhouse there…

Here’s the Turbo Tap version of the questline:

  1. After finishing the Bart & Milhouse BBall tasks I got a ‘congratulations’ dialog box with animated fireworks for completing a storyline which told me to enjoy my reward. I didn’t get any reward and it looks here like it wasn’t for the 22 for 30 storyline. Did anyone else see this?


  2. I love the half court…goes great on the playground @ the elementary school…the animation is terrific!

  3. If you tap the Outdoor Half-Court, you can make a free throw. Tap it in the right place and you can sink it, otherwise it bounces off the backboard.


  4. I love a good deal, so I picked up Coach Krupt right away. I plan to build an amateur sports complex with the Springfield YMCA, the half-court and the football field we got during the Super Bowl tie-in. I have a few scattered items from the Tapball event that I can include, too.


  5. Interesting update. Not much of a sports person, so saving sprinkles in anticipation of getting some more Irish in my town (guessing within the next two weeks).

  6. Hi you guys missed the YMCA for 120 Donuts with 20 Donuts rebate

  7. Picked up Coach Krupt with the 20 donuts rebate, 100 donuts for a voiced, premium character and a building with income is always a good deal. Already love seeing him bombarding!

    My % went up thanks to Homerclese. I didn’t finish the superhero 2 event, as i was” tapped out” at the time, so i am now missing out on the % from the Dead Lobster building.

    Regarding the new content, I’ll pass. Not a huge sports fan anyway. But it’s fun seeing Milhouse shoot hoops in the court from the questline.


  8. It’s a good episode tie-in because it doesn’t require a lot of tapping (Freemium themes alright with prior Stadiums – Football Field, Basoccer Field) 👍

    I feel sorry that Noobs are spending Donuts on “Freemiums & Craftables” (at least their at rebate) 🤔


  9. Was forced to update an hour or two before this hit the game, but at least I got one round of extra bonuts from the “overtime.” And enough time to earn the Samba School in my B-game. But onward and upward to the next thing now. Although this is the third sports themed update since Tapball, I still find room to fit in the new stuff. Sometimes I’m thankful that new characters come with a small decoration instead of a building, though. Picked up Anger Watkins right away 🙂

  10. I’ve always liked Coach Krupt and, as a freemium player, would love to get him with a rebate but they’re not offering early access. I’m still a few levels away from 52 so I’ll probably miss out on the deal.


  11. 110 donuts for a Character PLUS a 3% bonus sounds like a good buy


  12. Always love a new character but the new items are very meh. My sports area is already way bigger than I want.


  13. The springfield YMCA and the coach is also available for purchase again. 120 donuts with a 20 donuts rebate.


  14. Is there going to be a post in regard to what items became premium with this update? My bonus % went up 6pts. I see that the homerclese statue is now 2%, but not sure about the other 4% yet.


  15. Patches & Poor Violet originally appeared as an event prize here: https://tstoaddicts.com/2015/12/18/christmas-2015-prize-guide-act-1-prize-5-patches-poor-violet/

    And then they came back as premium characters here: https://tstoaddicts.com/2016/12/08/should-i-spend-donuts-on-returning-patches-poor-violet-ling-gino-or-the-santa-bundle/

    In my store they show as they’ll earn 200% for each task, when other premium characters often show as they earn 50%. 100 donuts for two characters for 200% of income from their tasks makes me feel like spending premium currency.

    On the other hand, I’m new at the game and I still don’t have most of the premium characters who help with the monorail and Springfield heights, and it takes time to earn enough donuts.


  16. Love this update, love the character-building combo/rebates cuz they’re good value(always love adding more characters to my town and increasing my bonus rate). I find Coach Krupt’s BOMBARDMENT task hilarious even tho it’s a bit cruel to watch him wail a dodgeball point-blank at a kid. Just waiting for the tourist characters to come back so I can buy them.


  17. Guessing many of you already have it, but I’ve got the YMCA in my store with a 20 donut rebate.


  18. I habe a soccer net from previous event, but on the store states 0,50% bonus and mine nothing, hows that? It happened to anyone else???


    • Same here.

      Took the soccer net out of inventory and placed it…
      No change in bonus 😦


      • The free soccer nets from Tapball don’t have the bonus, it’s only the new ones bought with donuts from this event.


    • It’s because you’re having to spend Donuts on them and the previous event I think we just paid in game cash .

      See ya bye . Stop by and we will make a movie in black and white . 👽


  19. Studio 6 has a new task. It’s something along the lines of report sports and it is 7 days with a payout of around $20000 ish dollars.


  20. I was just clearing my town and Disco Stu was strutting down the street and it seemed so familiar…from the 70’s…
