Bart Royale Prize Guide: Act 1, Prize 4 General Bart


The Teaser for this event said, “It’s a battle for the ages! Wait, we mean a battle of the ages – kids and adults are at war in Springfield! But what could cause this generational divide – Unfair bedtimes? Too many vegetables? Territory rights to the town’s new playground? (That last one was so specific it has to be true). Can Bart lead the youths to victory over Homer’s aged army and claim Springfield’s new Mega Playscape?

Uhm. OK…

This is the kind of event where you really need a “program to keep track of the players.”  Bart Royale is less like a “royal flush,” and more like a game of 52 card pickup! But, that said, we do get a load of new items that are fun, and in some cases darn right rewarding for our efforts!

Let’s take a look at the FOURTH Prize of this Event:
The General Bart Skin.

Bart Royale 101: Defensive Bonus Act 1

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A new element added to our games for Bart Royale is a Defensive Bonus.  Simply explained, it’s an extra bonus of Prize Track currency awarded at the Playscape when you place items (that award a Defensive Bonus) in the “zone” around the Playscape.

So basically, it’s a simple way to earn even more prize track currency at the Playscape.

Let’s take a look at how items from Act 1 impact the Defensive Bonus because Spoiler it will change for Acts 2 and 3 as more items will be added to the craftables (and more bases are added).
