Turbo Tappin’ (Animal Free) Thanksgiving 2017: Main Questline and Prizes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s the holiday season! Here in America we’re gearing up for Thanksgiving…the one holiday that stands between us and Christmas….so naturally the Simpsons have to celebrate!  While I think it would have been awesome to get a confetti shooting Homer balloon from last Sunday’s episode, this mini event is fun too!

Of course, as with all events, a questline comes with it to help move us through the ins and outs of the event…and unlock all of the prizes.  As was mentioned on the rundown post this mini event is similar to the previous mini-events (like Homer the Heretic and the Most Dangerous Game before it), in that you’ve got to complete various tasks to unlock the prizes.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just how to unlock all the Animal saving inspired prizes…

NOTE FROM PATRIC- I was one of you…no iOS. It landed this morning (11/15). HOWEVER…it didn’t just “show up.”  I needed to shut down my device completely…as in all the way off, not just clicking the screen. Shut. Down. Then go into the app store…and do a search for “The Simpsons Tapped Out.” That finally brought up the new updated screen.  Please try that before you write, reinstall, or freak out any further…Thanks!!

  1. Hmmm, so with this update came tasks for two characters i don’t have. Hank Scorpio and Jasper. They seem to have nothing to do with the event. Now I’m gonna have them stuck on my task bar until i buy them? Is gacking yer task bar with tasks you can’t do the new way for EA to get us to buy premium characters?

  3. Hi there. I have been taking a break from the game for a little BUT imagine my surprise to come here and see You Don’t Make Friends With Salad!!! 😁 That was my idea! More like a request, because obvi I didn’t create the Simpsons, but you know what I mean! Wookie did that What an Addict Wants post many moons ago and that was what I wanted! YAY! Now I gotta catch up to win it!

  6. does it bother anyone else that the characters used to collect metal are the same characters needed to collect items in these mini events yet metal, in my game atleast, is all that’s ever needed for the rail yard? i’ve got over 180 characters and they walk around the town all day, doing ludicrous things, but i’m led to believe only a select few can help create cans…no wonder the employment rates are always getting complaints

  7. I’m not a huge fan of the fall trees and dead trees I miss the green ones. They probably won’t switch it back before the winter event so just like in real life we’ll have to wait to see green again in 2018 😦

    • I’ve said it before, but I still wish we could control the weather theme ourselves. In 12 days it’ll be the first day of Summer for me, which means the next 5 months will be hot and dry (it’s been in the low 30’s the past week). Yet my game will have dead-looking trees and snow a bit later. Even in Autumn (Mar-May) most of our trees don’t lose any leaves, so I hate seeing trees without leaves in my game. It makes decorating a nightmare, especially when the game has snow, as half the plants look dead or barely recognisable covered in snow. To me Christmas is all about fun in the sun, beaches, barbeques, and for kids the long school holidays.

  8. I’m enjoying this event because there’s good content. I’ve picked up Mrs Bouvier (a name I always hear in my head as Grandpa’s Hoffman-esque plea), Big Chief, and the chilli dog stand. The prizes all look good and despite a delayed start and some small technical issues, I’m comfortable with where I’m at. These mini events are usually pretty straightforward.

    Is it possible to get the Slaughterhouse if I start in some days, or is it rather hard to get and I should start now? I like to collect the walls of the previous event to have building material, so I’m a bit torn if I should update the game or can come late to the Thanksgiving party and still earn the slaughterhouse.

    Please reply, my previous posting was not published, hope this gets. :/

    As an Android device user? This event was a delayed release for me (but not as delayed as my fellow iOS Tappers – c’mon EA, that’s just sloppy!) I guess what is obtained during this year’s Mini-Event can go right next to prior years Thanksgiving Decor (such as those Parade Balloons) 🤓

  16. What is going on?? For the last couple of weeks, my game downloads like I did a hard close. So, i did an uninstall/install and waited. It was fine for a day or so, then again, today, install to 850+mb!! The 1st time it happened, it was 1400+mb!! Why is this happening? I have 9gb open on my device, so, it’s not memory space. Any help would be appreciated. I’ve been playing this since it dropped to Android many years ago. I’m about to quit. Thanks!!

    • Contact EA. The best way to do this in my experience is in game.. while playing on mobile device. Click the construction icon (hammer and saw). Then click “get help” Should take you a website with “contact us” at bottom..pick tech support…Click “call me option”:. fill out form..They will actually call you within time frame listed give or take. Or at least they have the last 3 times I did these steps..

      • Just an FYI ; The call me option is now only available for USA & Canada when you fill in the form. It used to be that Australians were able to speak to an EA rep & have them call you, but no longer is this so. I never did get on to EA in the end.

        As a tip; Watch you get your 5 railyard donuts – I didn’t which was why I was wanting to contact EA. That & to complain of 15 days tasks for a mystery box that yielded a bomb shelter! (To go with the 18 already in my inventory!) At least it wasn’t another _onda! (32 of them already!) – It’s about time some new prizes were on offer! If I bought a mystery box for donuts & got something useless like that I think I’d scream blue murder!

          • Yep, really annoying. I got the robot KEM during the last event which allows me to send almost all characters on premium 4hour tasks via the Unemployment Office. But these 3hour Thanksgiving tasks put a halt to that. No choice but to go with it and send all characters on the 3 hour tasks for now.

  23. I just realized that the trolls and beasts are still paying out with the same decorations at the end of their shifts. They pay cash, but still also award more of the same junk we already have too much of from the event. Soooo…if I want to have them wandering my town, I have to continue to store a never ending stream of stuff (I wanted to use a different word…also starts with “s”) that I don’t want? Please, EA, fix this…nobody wants a thousand broken TVs or dirty toilets in their inventory.

    • I just discovered this today too! Ugh! I do see that you have the option, for each troll and beast, to toggle each of them to be either at rest or to be active. Just tap on them and a box pops up to give you that option or to release them (which gives you money, xp (I think) and those wonderful, gee-I’ve-got-way-too-many-of-these decorations. Their activities are movements while they stand-in-place, rather than wandering, unfortunately. I’m still sending Treestache out and about. The trees he brings back for me I’ll either use or sell. I am getting way too many of the small islands though. BTW–Are they the same Small Islands that are in the store right now for donuts? They look the same to me.

  24. This is the day of progress…

    11:45 GMT+1: update in store, 12:00 GMT+1: off to a WiFi hotspot, download, start Lisa’s 6s task, then put the grinders from railyard to have some ToFun 😀

    Quinn was instabuy, still had enough donuts.

    Maybe it was the last time I spent real money but couldn’t resist: bought 300D and then Mrs. Bouvier and the Chieftain (and Pow-Wow sign, too).
    WHOOOOSH! the bonus rose again 🙂

    Then the income from the beasts and some new buildings…
    My farmium scenario as depicted in Excel has grown, especially the cash which allows me in two or three days to earn full donuts (3 per level) from my 72-KEM farm 🤑

    May the holidays come…
