Egyptian Era Is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Egyptian Era of the Time Travel Event Ends TOMORROW June 23rd at 0800 GMT (4am ET).

Once the Egyptian Era is over you will no longer be able to earn Egyptian Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember keep earning papyri you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Era starts…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Era.  As will the Specimen you’ve accumulated.

For a rundown on everything that was included with the Egyptian Era check out our rundown post here.

Be ready for the Pirate Era to start bright and early at 0800 GMT (4am ET) tomorrow morning  (June 23rd)….but make sure to grab those items before the Egyptian Era is history

P.S Good tips before next Era starts…save Daily Challenges that earn you event, save shovels & save your neighbor visits if you’ve earned all of the Egyptian prizes, so you can get a jump start when the next Era starts.

    Don’t know why so many people seem to be having a hard time completing the acts. I have finished both acts thus far with almost 6 days to spare on each act ! Log in at least 4 times a day, do your daily challenges and visit your friends daily, should have no problems I would think. Hopefully it’ll get better for those struggling ! Best wishes !


  2. i finished Egypt era a few days ago and even got the camel and the first four pirate items.

    been trying to save up cash for Springfield Dam. When are you going to write up about that and the other items in the Road to Riches saga?


  3. Welp, squeaked by with 2.5 hours to go. Had to bust into the shovels I was saving for Act 3, but only needed a handful to reach Task Master Willie.

    This act I tried to be a lot more diligent with logins than I was in the last act. The only thing I skipped out on was maybe 1 or 2 days of friend visits. Checked in 3-4 times a day, used digging strategy to have a 1:10 ratio of gems found to shovels used (max) and cleared my town of all Egyptians every time I checked in.

    Ah well ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


  4. Def a challenging event. I usually get 3-4 rounds of bonuts. Now lucky to get maybe one. I enjoy the challenge. It’s def a change. Not as easy to skate through the event. Not saying the prizes are all great. Or even the premium offerings are fair. I really wanted pharaoh skinner but refuse to pay 150 donuts for a skin and a building. I’ve been playing since almost the beginning. Never spent a $1 on donuts. But always had fun playing tapped out. At times it was frustrating. But still took it with a grain of salt. In the end it’s jus a game. It’s supped to be fun. Challenging. Frustrating. Irritating. But still have fun. That’s what it’s supposed to do …. keep calm and tap on 😊


  5. Outrageous, not getting final prize again. Why would they mess with thier game like this?


  6. With 9hrs to go I’m about 17,000 off the pyrimid, I’ve got no chance. Didn’t get moe’s cave either was about 7000 off that, dont know what more I could of done checking in every 3-4hrs! Finding this event too difficult within the allotted time, usually I’d be collecting bonuts by now! 😣


  7. Managed to complete both acts 1 and 2 with less than 12 hours to spare. This is the first time I can remember that I haven’t been able to win any Bonuts in an event, and as a freemium player I need every Bonut going to keep up my 5-a-day average. Here’s hoping that act 3 is a little bit easier to complete.


  8. As a freemium player, I usually manage to finish each act and get bonuts. I play numerous times per day, but didn’t finish the first act and had to buy the baby t-rex! I am nowhere near finishing the second act! Don’t know what’s gone wrong this time!

    Done the best ever event ever since I started, way back then, got all prizes days ago, 190,+ shovels collected roll on 9am GMT, or is that 8am +1 GMT??????, Springfield looks more like yul brynner westworld, lol


  10. Every one in the comments is complaining about not finishaving this act. The reason for this is how they lower the currency collecton (tapped time travelers and shovels) and also the prices for each prize goes up each act thas why theyes give another premium characters to get shovels so it evens out


  11. I’m about a day behind in the event. I’ve been playing the game as often as I can. This has made me very discouraged about continuing to play the event or future events.


  12. The Egyptian walls disappeared the other day and I am so annoyed as l should have purchased more earlier. Really destroyed my design as I don’t have enough.😡

  13. So…Daily Tasks. If I finished one (by accident, didn’t see it was for sending characters to collect shovels until I saw “daily tasks completed!”), will it stay there until I claim it?

    The reward was 1100 papyri, and I’m too far from getting another round of bonuts. So I was hoping to leave it until act 3 starts. But I seem to remember something happening during another event where it changed the reward to dollars…

    If no one knows, guess I’ll be the guinea pig!


  14. This is the first event that I did not finish the first prize track (moes cavern), and am close but not sure if I will finish the second prize track. All other events I usually am getting 6-7 bonut rounds in act 1, and 4-5 bonut rounds in act 2. I usually finish act 3 on the last day or 1 day before. We shall see if I can finish. Love this site, by the way.


  15. I think I finished yesterday. Now I’m just hoarding shovels and daily challenges. Some fun stuff for my desert area this act.


  16. Honestly surprised so many people are struggling with this event. I got Caveman Moe with a day to spare, and Slavedriver WIllie with a couple of days to spare. Didn’t get many daily tasks with event currency this era, but logged in 2-3 times a day and did my neighbour visits. The only premium character I have to help is Booberella.

    I’m getting less rounds of bonuts than usual (only 1 round per era), but getting all the prizes hasn’t really been an issue for me.


    • Yeah, I got Booberella to. (actually excited to, she had been on my list for a while. I play freemium, so it has taken a while.) I think that makes all the difference.
      The effect is cumulative. If you got her early, she earned more shovels – which upgraded our excavation pit sooner, which gave more rewards – which upgraded the pit sooner, which gave more rewards sooner and made it easier to tap on the time travelers wondering around town.
      As it stands right now, I am one upgrade from a fully upgraded Panini Press.

      The other thing I think helped people is understanding how to efficiently use shovels. I wonder how many of the people who are close or may not make it had an efficient strategy for excavating.

      (BTW, if you had non-Cavegirl Booberella, did she earn shovels? Hmm, maybe I should go find that post.)


  17. I just got the pyramid and task master (I think that’s what he’s called) willie this morning. Barely made it because my 5 month old and I have been sick since it started. Honestly didn’t think I’d make it. However, I bought donuts to use on the event and there was NOTHING this era that I wanted that we didn’t get in the quest or crafting. So guess that’s just saving up.

    15 hours to go. I’m 4600 Papyri from Bonuts. There’s an 1100 Papyri award awaiting me if I use 12 shovels. About how many Papyri will I get for 12 shovels?
