Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Hang onto your toasters my friends because we’re going flying through space and time! The latest event in TSTO has us going wayyy back in time to when Dinosaurs roamed the earth, Pharaohs were building pyramids & Pirates hobbled around on their peg legs!
This Event is broken up into 3 Eras, with each Era containing part of the story. To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act. Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event. For the second Era, Egyptian, you’re tasked with collecting Papyri () to unlock each prize!
So let’s take a closer look at this seventh prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…
And you’ll have the option to place the Pyramid in your Springfield or store it in your inventory for later. Remember if you store it you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it (and you won’t get Tachyon credit until you’ve placed it)
This is a SKIN for Willie, not a new character (like Caveman Moe was).
Once you place and build (4hr build time) the Pyramid you’ll see Taskmaster Willie’s Character Unlock Message popup:
And he’s part of the Sun Worshippers Character Collection:

Taskmaster Willie does NOT earn Shovels. (but regular Willie does…)
And now, because I know some of you will ask me this given how some of you have struggled with aspects of this event. Is it worth it to spend donuts to get Taskmaster Willie? The answer, no. Unless it’s only 10-20 donuts, no it’s not worth spending them for a skin.
Of course that all being said, continue to play until the last second of the Egyptian Era so that you can get that donut cost down as low as possible…
And there you have it, the details behind Taskmaster Willie and the Pyramid the final Egyptian Era Prize.
Bonuts! For every 8,800 you collect after you’ve unlocked Taskmaster Willie you’ll have the opportunity for 1, 2 or 3 donuts. Beyond that it’s just waiting until the next Era (Pirates) hits our games.
