Walk Like an Egyptian..TTT Egpyt Era Is Live!

Update: I know some of you had questions about Willie and Skinner…BOTH the final prize of this act (Taskmaster Willie) and the premium Pharaoh Skinner are costume/skins NOT full new characters (like Caveman Moe was).  So yes…EA wants you to pay 150 donuts for a skin…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Hope you’ve got your dancing shoes on because it’s time to Walk Like an Egyptian through time as the Time Travel Toaster has flashed us into the  Egyptian Era…

Remember…this is an automatic change in your game.  Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..

Lisa, Wiggum & Pharaoh Ziff will start this for you with dialogue.  This will be followed by a 4hr task for 5 Springfielders.

Egyptian Era Runs until June 23rd, 2017

Just what does Act 2 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look…

New Prize Currency for Egyptian Era.

 Papyri 

So the ability to earn Fossils is now gone.  Your counter prize track for the Egyptian Era has reset to zero because you have zero Papyri.  So forget about those Fossils…time to read the papyri

You’ll earn papyri very similar to how you earned Fossils during the Prehistoric Era…

-Clearing the new Tappables (Pharaoh Gods)
– Clearing Pharaoh Gods in your Neighbor’s towns
-Tasks at Mom and Pops Hardware (earn shovels and Papyri)
-Dig Site, each Square you earn will earn Papyri (like it earned fossils), output will vary depending on your Panini Press Level.
-Daily Challenges
-Waterslide (if you’ve purchased it)

You’ll also earn Papyri from the questline…don’t ignore the questline.  You earn a ton of Event currency from it, it’s important for your prize track total..


New Egyptian Era Tappables

The New Egyptian Era Tappable is the Pharaoh God.  They still spawn, 1 every 3 minutes. The Max in your town at once 30, Bank 50.  So your town and bank is full every 4hrs….

Each one you tap earns you…

 and 5 


Excavation Site Prizes

Yes, you’ll still be collecting SHOVELS for the Egyptian Era Dig site.  You earn shovels by sending characters on tasks at Mom and Pops Hardware, by Daily Challenges and by buying them (don’t buy them).

You’ll need 48  to earn all of the Egyptian Era Excavation Prize Track…and it works exactly like it did for the Prehistoric Era.

The same characters can earn shovels.  Pharaoh Skinner can earn 4, like Cavegirl Booberella

And the prizes are..

3 Egyptian Pillars (3 )

Burning Tree (9 )

Egyptian Sundial (16 )

Skinner Sarcophagus (23 )

Abu Simbel Temple (48 )

Remember it’s a running total…and those little icons are the hidden treasures you find at the excavation site.

 



Egyptian Era Personal Prizes

Banana Leaf Windmill- 9,900

Free Land- 18,200

Tuts ‘n’ Tots Elementary- 30, 600

Orb – 43,000

1,000 Specimen- 51, 300

Bonuts are still there after prize track is complete.


Prehistoric Prizes…

If you didn’t collect them all… you can still access them by tapping on the “PREHISTORIC” tab in the Personal Prizes area. As you can no longer collect items for them, your only option now is to pay donuts to outright buy each one left at the point you left off at. (Just like every other event recently.)


Crafting

Crafting remains, as it was during the Prehistoric Era, for the Egyptian Era.

Specimen for crafting are earned via the prize track, Daily Challenges, tapping Pharaohs, Excavation site and the Historical Society (if you purchased it)


New Items in the Store..

Pharaoh Throne (w/ Pharaoh Skinner)- 150 Donuts (earns shovels)

Returning

Hieroglyph Wall- $500

 Sacred Parchment- 15 Donuts


And before you ask…

Here’s a list of posts we’re working on that should be up soon…

-Egyptian Calendar
-Egyptian walkthrough
-SIB for New Content
-And more!

BUT…it’s SUNDAY.  Nothing new is going up today.  The only other post that’ll go up is the Open Thread later this morning.  Beyond that the other info will be up tomorrow.  Sorry, but it’s Sunday and we all will be spending the day with our family.

So be patient, the info you need will be up soon. 🙂


And that my friends concludes the quick rundown of the Egyptian Era!

Remember this is just a quick rundown…as we have time to play through the Era ourselves we’ll break everything down in more detail.  If you need help with the basics check out the Time Travel Toaster Event Page in the meantime.

Thoughts on the Egyptian Era?  Just like you pictured it?  Excited about these prizes?  How’d you do with your Prehistoric prizes?  Will you be buying any of the new premium items? Sound off in the comments below.  You know we love hearing from you!

  1. I’ve been trying to get the pirate treasure which cost1500 I have more than that and it won’t unlock. It does say earn this item from the Excavation Site but how do you do this?

  2. Am confused do I clear as many squares for maximum papyri which I need, or gem hunt which I don’t need,

    • After you’ve maxed out gems it’s irrelevant which option you do because if you have 17 shovels and use them all you’ll get credit for 17 spaces, regardless if you found the gem in 4 moves, 6 moves, or didn’t find the gem.

  3. I just realised that there is no timer on the stuff in the store any more – how will I know when the limited time stuff disappears now? Is this a new way of stopping us to think things over before buying?
    But when there is no “limited time” label, maybe people won’t buy stuff because the think it will be around at least till the end of the event? Not sure what they were thinking, but it seems a dumb move from my perspective. But then, EA is not required to make our lives easier…
