Pin Pals Prize Breakdown: Pin Pals Bowling Alley

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well time to live life in the fast lane because we’ve got ourselves a Pin Pals Bowling Mini Event in Springfield!  That’s right our pocket-sized Springfield’s have gone to the gutter….the bowling gutter that is…as we set em up to knock em down with this Bowling event!

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the Pin Pals questline you’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

Let’s take a look at the details of the first prize, Pin Pals Bowling Alley.  What it does and how you unlock it…

The first prize unlocked during the Pin Pals Mini Event is the Pin Pals Bowling Alley:

  1. An FYI for anyone waiting for a SIB for the extra bowling lanes (you will be able to buy additional lanes for 25 🍩 after you’ve unlocked the first one in the prize track). All pin pals have a 4-hour animated task (except Homer’s 8-hour task) that uses the lane. If you got Pin Pal Burns and Pin Pal Moe they pay out at a premium rate. I put four lanes next to each other, it’s great fun to see them bowling next t each other. But the bonus-% is kinda bad, especially if you consider that Apu doesn’t earn at a premium rate. So only get it if you like the look and the great animations.

    I am having fun with this event so far and just earned the claw machine. I like how Apu cleans his ball with a rag like the guy in the Big Lebowski. LOL

  3. I don’t get how to place something that should be inside a building on the outside. How should one design a town with a bowling lane out in the wild? :-/

      It’s a place for the extra drunk to bowl and vomit in nature I think

    • I made a kids arcade on Squidport and put 2 of the bowling alleys with the Arcade building, basketball game, the claw machine, dunk-a-monk, the ball pit and some low-blow boxing machines, along with Wally Weasel’s pizza place and the bouncy castle. You could make a kid’s area anywhere in you town (or make an island) and any or all of this stuff would work.

      • Not only did you copy my idea but you did it better…. 😄 Just kidding, it’s fun to see how people on opposite sides of the world can get the same idea. I also made a maze using the hedges and included the go cart track and the minigolf course. There’s a playground as well, and I put the Farmville simulator next to the arcade. It takes up a lot of space so placing it on the pier was not an option. I may try to upload a pic, not sure how it works…

  4. I’m debating whether to buy Barney or not. On the one hand, every Springfield should have a Barney, but on the other hand I’ve never spent 160 doughnuts on anything before, and I’m not willing to let go of my hard earned doughnuts just yet. I’m sure there will be another deal coming up soon and I’m not sure if I should wait for that or make the jump now 🤔

      Yeah dude, he is expensive… I am a freemium player and would love to get him now if I could because of the rebate especially. I bought Adil Hoxha in the last event and spent all my donuts, He is really rad at least though and I love how he has great visual tasks and earns premium. Barney is King though. 🙂 I gave my love a chicken, It had no bones….. Mmmm chicken

    • Get him! He’s worth it.

    • Get Barney NOW! I paid 250 donuts for him and the Bowlerama. Barney says a lot of funny stuff and he’s a classic character!

  5. Up to 3 bowling alleys in Springfield then, I have 2.

    Was this one ever in an episode?

    • There are only 2 Bowling alleys in Tapped Out: Barney’s and Pin Pals. If you are referring to Alley McBalls, that is a store.
      Pin Pals is unique to Tapped Out.

  6. Not too wild about the design, their faces on the sign is a bit much for me. Maybe if I had an Uncle Moe’s Feedbag to put next to it? Are you listening, EA? ; ). Fun little event, glad to have Jaques!
