Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Looks like EA’s truly being unpredictable these days…which I do think is a good thing..and we’ve got ourselves a late in the day in-game update!
I’ll be back with more details on this in a bit…but for now know that it auto starts for you with some dialogue from Mayor Quimby, and this is followed by a task for kids of Springfield and Skinner (6s). Which is followed by tasks for the Parents of Springfield and Skinner (also 6s). And that’s followed by another 6s task for the kids. This will launch your mini event track..and start to show the prizes in the game and items you can purchase in the store.
Additionally, it looks like the tourists are back in Springfield! EA’s finally repaired the missing dialogue bug plaguing the tourists and they’ve returned to the store…so you’ll see some dialogue popup from them as well. And they’ll appear in the store for 60 donuts…
Back with more in a bit Tiny Addict’s asleep, images converted, details unfolded and here we go…
Remember this is an in-game update. Nothing to download from the App Stores. So if you don’t see it download automatically in your game try hard closing and restarting TSTO..
FYI…it appears (based on what’s being offered in the store) that this is the “military take over” event teased in the update dialogue…
First a few notes…
This Update Ends March 28th at 0800 GMT (as of right now), which is 4am EDT…
For those looking/hoping for St. Patrick’s Day…St. Patrick’s Day items are coming. They’ll be here on St. Patrick’s Day. From what I can see there’s nothing new, but if you were hoping to pick up old items they’ll be back. In a Mystery Box form…
And this event has a second component to it, Hellfish. That won’t start until next week, when the St. Patrick’s Day stuff leaves. It appears that this will at least be more items in the store to purchase….we’ll see what (if anything) else.
And finally, the Tourists (as mentioned above) are back in the store. 60 donuts for all 3 tourists. They are FULL characters (3 individual characters). They have tasks that will put them in their various costumes from the Around the World Event. I’ll have a full breakdown on them in the Should I Buy post. But the short of it…yes, this is a great buy.
Now onto what’s involved with this event…
As mentioned above you’ll have to complete a series of 6s tasks to trigger the mini event screen to appear, and new items in the store.

Now let’s talk about the prizes…. (and again I’ll have the breakdown on how to get each one in the Turbo Tappin’ post):
Conquer the Eliminator Task for Cadet Lisa- 480
You may have noticed I used for the prizes, this is the Class Coin and the item you’ll need to collect to unlock the prizes.
How do you earn these coins? Well just like other mini events you can earn coins by sending various characters on 3hr tasks (yes, weird time). Freemium characters earn 10 each task and Premium characters earn 20 each task.
Leopold, the new premium character, will earn . Also, Greta Wolfcastle earns .
I’ll break down who can help earn for each task in the Turbo Tappin’ Post. But it’s basically the it’s in Springfield (Ralph, Martin, Nelson, Dolph, Milhouse, Bart, Lisa, Database, Janey)
After you complete the prize track you’ll be able to use the Eliminator to earn various prizes, by sending Lisa on 12hr tasks there.
And that’s it my friends, all there is to the Rommelwood Academy mini event!
What are your thoughts on the mini event? Anything you’re excited to see? Not excited to see? Ready for a nice low key fun event? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
I have been unable to complete the Academy story line, due to a glitch. And even though this has now long gone, my game is still glitched, the kids are still in loop of detention. Even after uninstall and re-installing game. Waited for updates to see if it would rid problem, but no, glitch is still present. My husband plays it too and has no glitch. Any suggestions as to what made it glitch? And how you can fix it. I look forward to your reply.
So about five am pacific time?
It’s a simple Event – I’ve been letting Cadet Lisa do her 12 hour Tasks to earn Bonus Prizes since Sunday (and speaking of Bonus Prizes – I 💜 some of the Mystery Box Items for St. Patrick’s Day) 👍
What else does she earn besides the training dummy? I’m trying to decide whether to make poor Lisa go through that for the next several nights or send her back to doing her wonderful balance beam routine each night.
So far I have received 2 training dummies & barbed wire fences. I’d like EA to add at least 1 more % earning item, otherwise Lisa will be doing something else for the majority of the time. If the task wasn’t so long I wouldn’t care as much 😊
