Turbo Tappin’ Pin Pals: Main Questline and Prizes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Pin Pal time in Springfield!  Yes, that’s right everyone’s favorite bowling team has reunited to help Mr. Burns evade Uncle Sam and the IRS!  This new mini event launched yesterday afternoon, and it’s stacked with bowling inspired buildings and decorations.

Of course, as with all events, a questline comes with it to help move us through the ins and outs of the event…and unlock all of the prizes.  As was mentioned on the rundown post this mini event is similar to the previous mini-events (like Homer the Heretic and the Most Dangerous Game before it), in that you’ve got to complete various tasks to unlock the prizes.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just how to unlock all the Pin Pal inspired prizes and figure out what happens when Mr. Burns tries to bowl…


Before you ask, from what I’ve seen bowling shoes  will NOT carry over.  Also, you may see the questline appear prior to unlocking him, but you cannot continue in the questline without Moe.

And now on with the walkthrough….

    Well my first Claw machine drop was at least not SH currency… but, it was… don’t hold your breath… a PHONE BOOTH!! I’m so excited 😆 (I already had 5 in storage, but they can be sold). So, basically it’s going to be like the Rocket ship I assume. At lEAst there’s (hopefully) a chance at something truly useful. 😊

  3. In case people were planning on storing it, the Pin Pal Bowling Lane has a 0.6% bonus attached to it.

    Interesting, earlier this morning, around 10:00 EST, I logged onto this site and at the top of topics was a list of all past Events – including this one (which was grayed out). Even more interesting in the list of:
    comments, and one was an old one by Miss Bunny BUT her Iconograph was newer than I recall. And THAT is what caugh my attention.

    Real life events happen in one’s life and a person moves about in response to those stimuli – and wherever Miss Bunny is seeking shelter (and privacy), “we” and especially I send Warm Fuzzies her way.

  13. Since they’re introducing Jacques, it would have been funny to have all the Homewreckers get bowling shirts. And the Holy Rollers, too.

    A while back I got a Pin Pal skin for Apu. I don’t see any mention of it helping in this event. It seems like it would be a natural.

        Well I hope your week goes fast 😊 Don’t pet the sweaty stuff… or is it don’t sweat the petty stuff. Either way, I hope your relaxation does not include anything TSTOA related. If you’re not back by the 26th, wish me luck, I’m having my back surgery (finally), then 😀😀😀😀
