Back with more as I go through it…more details below the fold

First thing is first…I’m going to start this by saying…

Dear EA,

The tappables for this event are…

Robot Funzos!

And boy are they a royal pain in the funzo to tap!

They unlock with The Invasion is Snow Joke Pt. 5, and they earn…

12 , 1  and a chance for 2 

It looks like they spawn 1/18 minutes.  Max of 20 in Springfield, bank of 60.

Important Note: Info I put in the post about banks etc is just from the files, it’s not verified in-game. It could be that it’s not supposed to work and I just don’t see the line of coding saying it.

Tip for tapping them quickly, because they are hard to find….

Tap the Robot Icon in the top Right Corner, it’ll take you right to them in your town….


Crafting unlocks at Part 6 of The Invasion Is Snow Joke.  And the “hub” for crafting is…

Jesus’ Carpentry Shop- Free, 4×6

Crafting currency, which can be earned via tapping Funzos, is 2x4s.

Actually not a ton of Craftables, and some of them are fairly decent.  While I would have preferred Crafting to be gone altogether, I do think this is nice. 

Again, there are levels you’ll need to move up to unlock all of the items.

Here are the craftables…

Candy Cane Fencing- 20 (Level 1)

Rigellian Christmas Wall- 40 (Level 1)

Elf Day Care Door- 160 (Level 1)

Gun Drop Rocks- 40 (Level 2)

Lollipop Flowers- 10 (Level 3)

Festive Nutcracker- 15 (Level 4)

Festive Hot Drink Stand- 60 (Level 5)

Gingerbread House- 350 (Level 6)

Festive Bow Lamp- 15 (Level 7)

Festive Candy Cane- 40 (Level 8)

Poinsettia Flowers- 80 (Level 8)

North Pole Columns- 160 (Level 9)

Ice Fence- 40 (Level 10)

Wooden Soldiers- 100 (Level 11)

Snowperson Security Guard- 180 (Level 11)

Festive Bell Lamp Post- 30 (Level 12)

Gingerbread Simpsons House- 350 (Level 13)


At Part 7 of The Invasion is Snow Joke you’ll unlock the Re-Gifting Machine…

Re-Gifting Machine- Free, 8×4

Wrapping paper (earned by tapping Funzos) fuels the machine.

If you win 6 times you’ll unlock a special Mystery Box.  Each round takes 15 Wrapping Paper. 

Basically, this is like the Sci-Fi robot battle (Poly Vac)…although there’s a Mystery Box after 6.  So that’s fun.

There is no cool down period from what I can see, if you have 15 wrapping paper you can keep going.

Here’s what’s in that Mystery Box…

5 Ice Tiles (4 times)

Free Land Token

Large Snowy Christmas Hill

Small Snowy Christmas Hill

Neighbor Actions

Neighbor Actions Unlock with Part 8 of The Invasion is Snow Joke…

You earn 1  for 30 actions.

Just tap Funzo Robots in neighbor’s towns.

Holiday Scratch-R

New premium Scratch-R available for $4.99

  1. Can anyone offer info on the North Pole Monorail Accessory Bundle? Do the pieces offer a bonus %? If so, how much? I tried a search for it on the site, but only found a SIB for the station, not the accesory bundle. TIA.

  2. Are there any old decorations/buildings I should put out for this event? Or does it matter?

  3. What Happens once you get all of the items in the Mystery Box from the Re-gifting Machine, about to get there

  4. Is it worth getting The Peak Inn?

  5. I’ve got all Act 1 gifts except for Mrs. Claus Kodos bundle. What comes with it? A new character and a Christmas fireplace? That it? Or do i have to have the female Mrs Kodos before using this cuz it’s a skin?

  6. anyone know the payouts on the Holiday Scratch-R?
