Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Snow is falling in Springfield! It’s finally Christmas time…but Kodos and Kang have their own ideas! Ticked off that they were left out of the Halloween update, our two favorite Rigellians have decided to invade Christmas!
This Event is broken up into 2 Acts, with each Acts 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 act, you’re tasked with collecting Tomes () to unlock each prize!
So let’s take a closer look at this first prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…
Once unlocked you’ll see Gautama Buddha’s unlock message…
And he’s the first character in the B.S. League Character Collection…
Buddha will be an important part of the main questline, as you’ll need him to complete many tasks (including Alien Battles). Once you’ve FINISHED the main questline then it’s best to start working on his sidequest (it’ll pop up once you unlock him, but you should wait to work on it until you’ve finished the main questline). Here’s a look at the Turbo Tappin’ version of that questline now:
Sutrageous Fortune Pt. 1
Gautama Buddha: Lisa, you are a special little girl and a worthy acolyte. I have come to give you a lesson in dharma.
Lisa: Wow, a private lesson from Buddha! Hear that Bart?

Sutrageous Fortune Pt. 2

Lisa: I’ve colored every placemat in the restaurant. When does my lesson start?

Sutrageous Fortune Pt. 5
Lisa: Buddha! So far all you’ve taught me is how to have a good time. When do the lessons start?
Gautama Buddha: Only the fool asks for knowledge she has already been given.
Lisa: It seems to me that you are completely going against the principles of Buddhism by giving into all these indulgences and material goods!
Gautama Buddha: Lisa, too often you follow only the way of self-restraint and self-mortification. But The Middle Way lies between asceticism and self-indulgence. I’ve taught you that, occasionally, it’s good to have a good time. And I looked good doing it.
