Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So this morning saw a few things happen in our Springfield’s….
First, you may have noticed a few limited-time changes with our Monorails. Second, there’s a new Magic Monorail Station in our stores. Third, a bunch of mini-events you may have missed have relaunched and you have a chance to start them. And fourth, it looks like we may have a little Halloween Teaser.
What do I mean? How does it work? Let’s take a look….
Let’s work in a mixed around order….starting with the return of mini events.
For those that are newer to TSTO and have asked for stuff to come back, now it has! Yes, they may stack up with each other. And yes, you may have multiple things to work through at once. Unfortunately, that’s the breaks of missing it the first time. EA brought the mini events back, but you’ll have to work through multiples at a time. And it’s just because it’s all returning content. They wouldn’t just bring back mini events without some level of new content for those who played through them all. Otherwise, those players that already finished those events wouldn’t play…make sense?
Some of you may be missing some of the mini events, or don’t have any trigger. Personally, in one of my games (lower level), I didn’t have any trigger this time around. But in another lower level game, I had 2 events trigger (Homer the Heretic and Pin Pals). I think the failure to trigger is a result of if the mini event was at all launched in that game at one point or another.
For example: in my first lower level game (where nothing triggered), I had at one point or another started all of the mini events. While I didn’t complete them, I did start them. And I think that’s why they didn’t trigger for me.
In my other lower level game (where Homer the Heretic and Pin Pals triggered), I triggered some mini events but not others. Never completed them, but triggered a few.
So I think that’s what’s causing some to trigger and some not to trigger. Of course, this is my speculation and I couldn’t be totally wrong.

Now let’s jump to the Monorail itself….
It looks like between now and Monday you’ll be able to earn double Blueprints when completing the Rail Yard. This is a good chance to earn some more track and bonuts!
Now onto the Magic Station and some returning content in our stores…
For 80 donuts you can pick up the Magic Station, another Monorail station for Springfield.
I will have a SIB post for this up later today breaking it 100% down like we always do, but for now know that while I think this may come into play for Halloween I don’t think it’s critical for Halloween. You’ll survive just fine without it if you don’t need another Monorail Station. EA wouldn’t release something critical for the next event as a premium item…keep that in mind.
There are also a TON of returning premium items in our stores from the past Monorail Event. I’ll do my traditional SIB Returning stuff breakdown as well. But you can find SIB posts on just about every returning item on this site by using the search box on this page.
And finally…a Halloween Teaser. This popup box…
Preceded by the dialogue from the episode tie-in talking about Angelica Button makes me think (as well as some of you I’m sure) we’ll see a Magic-themed Halloween Event this year. (Sam, try not to pass out…)
So we shall see what happens next week…
Remember…I think Halloween will hit on October 3rd, next Tuesday.
And that’s it my friends…let your speculation hearts run wild! Sound off below with your thoughts on the new content, the old content and the future content…
