Bart Royale and Homergeddon – Act One Calendar

As sometimes seems to happen (more and more) major event releases sputter and pop to get started.  This time, those of us on the West Coast took the “late hit” and had to wait a few hours longer to banish the snow and get to battling over play structure territory. I didn’t get the update until almost 10PM, a full 6 hours after Alissa notified me that it was “in the files.”  Bummer.

However, as the Brits used to say during WWII, “Keep Calm and Carry On.”  Which reminds me to mention that if Gary Oldman doesn’t win the Oscar for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in the “Darkest Hour,” something is very, very, very wrong.
He. Was. Amazing!!  But, I digress…

Bottom line…even with the delays, I have every belief that I will catch up, and cruise into the “get everything I want” mode, with time to spare.

Let’s break this thing down in nice, easy to digest, 4-hour blocks (sound familiar??)

Act One Currency for the Primary Prize track is Duff Beer. OK. So, it is an adult game? You bop the bad guys ( who look more like Mad Max characters than squatters), and you get beer? Kinda weird and sadly mean to the concept of the homeless and disenfranchised…but this is the Simpsons.


MATH BITS… (compliment of Alissa)

When tapped (in YOUR town) they earn 10  and 1 

They spawn at a rate of 1/10 minutes.  Max of 30 in your town at once and a bank of 30.

Remember…this is what the files are indicating but it may not be 100% accurate.  So don’t shoot the messenger. 

Neighbor Actions
Planet of Escapes Part 6 also unlocks neighbor actions.  Where, you guessed it, you’ll also tap the tappables.   For each tappable you tap you’ll earn 10  and 1  and you’re allowed 30 actions. (basically 10 neighbors, at 3 actions/neighbor)

TIP… In YOUR town, the ugly buggers will tend to move toward, and congregate around the play structure. So tap a couple and wait…they will start showing up.

In your neighbor’s town…you just need to find them. But, we’ll see if visiting neighbors in search of beer and debris (which often comes hand in hand with too much beer) is really worth your effort.

BONUS % returns for placing debris barriers are pretty self explanatory.  You are asked to place a variety of barriers in the Defensive Bonus Area of the play structure. It is confusing as to if you are trying to keep the kids out, or the adults in…but, it doesn’t matter. Placing stuff in there increases your Beer Bottle Yield. And who doesn’t like “free beer?”

HERE ARE THE CALENDARS and the Math needed to hit the Primary Goal of Pyro!


And for the Non-Gregorian types who just want the numbers…

I’m calm about this. I’m already near my first day’s goal and it’s still mid-morning. So…no sweat, no worries, Keep Calm and Have a Beer!

  1. Can someone please tell me how to get land tokens so I can unlock the new land. I already used the free ones I got around Christmas. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

    • Wait til EA offers them as prizes/rewards etc. My guess there will be one in each of the next two prize acts.

    • Shannon, land tolkins are only given out during challenges or in some mystery boxes. You have to earn them during a challange to get them if they are available. If you don’t have any tolkins then you will need to save up from. your building earnings and character jobs and buy the land outright. Hope this helps. Good luck!

  2. You show 36,000 accumulated on 1-30 but you then show General Bart as being earned at 35,900 on 1-31.

  3. omg i literally just got this update yesterday so im like 6 days behind :/ i hope to catch up :'(

    • Here is your calendar.
      1/29/2018 0
      1/30/2018 9000
      1/31/2018 18000
      2/1/2018 27000
      2/2/2018 36000
      2/3/2018 45000
      2/4/2018 54000
      2/5/2018 63000

      I hope you have donuts.

      • Thankyou very much 🙂 yeah i dont have many donuts im so annoyed its a good 1 but it didnt update 🙁 but im pretty far in now so the little i have i might get all fingers crossed 🙂

        • I wouldn’t worry too much. Pyro will probably return in a Mystery Box (haven’t seen much to really want in him). If you don’t KEM farm, if you start now you will have plenty of donuts by the time he returns.

          • I sometimes kem farm depending on coins im trying save up for the magnifying glass but thinking i might do a kem run im 147 lvl bout halfway i normally gain few levels on kem farming then need save up coins again :/ takes ages for coins to come :/
            Cheers for you help and info its very helpful 😀 Yeah i will wind up trying for him later in the mystery box (hopefully)

            • When you use your cash to KEM farm/ MB (increase bonus) your cash will increase faster. In less than a year I went from 1 million to over 140.

  4. Perfect timing on General Bart!
    Thank you for the calendar!

  5. I might get to finally stop looking at the calendar and worrying on a daily basis, WOOHOO! Looking like I should catch up to the calendar tonight, as I’m only 2k points behind and it’s early morning. Nose to the grindstone folks, we will get that gladiator Pyro!

    • Patric’s calendars are great, but if you start late if gives you the sense you are always behind, causing some people to spend donuts to catch up. This is especially true if the awards increase as the game goes along.

      If C = your current count, D = the number of full days left, G= Goal.
      R = (G-C) = Remaining to get. So R/D = Daily Average = A.

      For example on this Act, on this Sunday, according to the master calendar you should have 22,500+ and 27,000 tonight.
      If you had at the end of Saturday 22,000, you may feel you are behind.
      G = 63000. C= 22,000 D= 9 therefore R = 41,000 A= 4556.
      So at the end of the day you should have C+A ( with the understanding the you will probably collect more tomorrow than you did yesterday).

      Days Left = fulls days left at the start of the day
      Count value is goal at the end of the day.
      The calendar adjust to
      Date Days Patrick You
      1/27/2018 22500 22000
      1/28/2018 9 27000 26556
      1/29/2018 8 31500 31112
      1/30/2018 7 36000 35668
      1/31/2018 6 40500 40224
      2/1/2018 5 45000 44780
      2/2/2018 4 49500 49336
      2/3/2018 3 54000 53892
      2/4/2018 2 58500 58448
      2/5/2018 1 63000 63004

      You can now recalculate your calendar any time as needed.

      BTW, a couple of times on the daily challenge I received 2000 vs 1500.

  6. Yay Act One Calendar (thanks Patric)

    Good thing I never stop Kem Farming, I may need to use Bonuts to keep up with the daily amount (I notice most of my Neighboreenos are way behind me, too)

    I don’t see any Premiums that benefit increasing hourly amount of Event Currency / Crafting Currency (good thing EA gave us more Land) 😀

    Keep On Tapping 👍

  7. To be fair with you saying that the tappables look like characters from mad max I thought this event was going to be mad max/dystopia based especially seeing as the vehicle chasing homer on the loading splash screen is definitely a parody of one of the main vehicles from fury Road with GK Willie standing in for the guy in the film who was strapped up playing a flame shooting guitar.

  8. Are there duff bonuses on the spot lights? I just placed my previously crafted spot lights around the playground and it light up to encourage me to put them there but no bonus. It’s the next thing I unlock so do they become bonuses when I unlock them?

  9. Installed the update today. So i am already 3 days behind.
    Anyone have tips for me so I can get all prizes. I have 300 donuts

    • People keep saying log in every 4 hours and you should be good. There’s a bonus event currency factor in the game (put your craftables in the playground parimeter) and your event currency grows exponentially as it moves along. Most people were behind after day one and are ahead after day 3 so no panic.

    • Craft ditches for the playground…you’ll get a better bonus % return than the other stuff. If you can afford the Hellfish bundle, get it…it adds 2 more playable characters (skins) to defend the playground, so your Duff income will increase faster. Also, the Slaghold will give you an extra 240 Duffs per day (360 Duffs if you never sleep 😴 ), and do your 10 neighbor visits (30 taps) at least until you catch up. If you can add Wendell and Erik, even better, but you can still catch up pretty quick without them if you build your playground bonus%.

  10. With 5 kids and 5 adults (no premiums or new skins), no Slaghold, and no bonus% for the playground…if you tap 4 times a day you will clear 5120 duffs…more than enough to get everything.
    So…no stressing, everybody will catch up.

    Overnight (12 hrs) 30 plus 30 reserve = 60 times 10/tap = 600 duffs
    Daytime (12 hrs) 72 times 10/tap = 720 duffs
    Neighbor visits (30 taps) times 10/tap = 300 duffs

    Daily Challenge = 1500 duffs

    5 kids = 250/ 4hrs …4 taps/day = 1000 duffs
    5 adults = 250/4hrs…4 taps/day = 1000 duffs

    Added up, you will make 5120 duffs per day. As you increase your playground bonus percent, you will make even more each day.
    Add Slag hold and you will add 240 duffs/day.

    If/when you max out…7 kids, 8 adults, 20% playground bonus, and Slaghold…you will clear almost 7400 duffs/day…waaaay over the top😜.

    • thanks for the breakdown. just started about 30 min ago. *smh* do you know if the speed timer is avail for the 4hr jobs? also, would buying the neighborhood license thingy make much of a difference for late starters?

      • Don’t waste your donuts on neighbourhood license thingy. So not worth it.

        If you’re gunna spend those kind of donuts you might as well get Wendell or Erik (Erik has a 4%bonus, but Wendell is classic)

      • No speed timer…you have to complete the entire 4 hrs. I would get the Hellfish bundle (adds 2 playable skins) and then the Slaghold or Wendell if you can afford it. Slaghold is a little cheaper, but Wendell is a better buy since he comes with a building. The license is the worst choice of the offerings.

  11. I am really concerned. Like normal after a couple days of playing I am almost a whole day ahead of the calendar. I should earn the free land tile tonight. Should I be concerned??? Am I tapping to much??
    I did pick up Wendell and Hell Fish for help as I am away all next week. Trying to max production early on.

    I have Homer, Moe, Hellfish Grandpa, Wiley, Hellfish Burns, krusty, Milhouse, Martin, Ralph, Bart, Nelson, Cat Lady, Wendell, Cletus all working for me. With my Current 3.75% bonus making 794 bottles every 4 hours.
    Depending on what daily reward is (2000 and 1500 so far), earning just shy of 6000 bottles a day.(4 taps and friend visit)

    • LOL… no you are tapping “just right.” Every 4 hours is gonna get you there early. So…go for it! And THANKS for the breakout. Now I don’t have to do a “Math” post…lol!

  12. Did anyone else lose all their progress? I was at 16000 or so last night then I dropped to zero (I think). My crafting supplies actually dropped to -200. Yes, negative.

    I did switch temporarily to my Android tablet version to cash in my Google rewards for Mecha-Moleman, but I always saved my game when prompted. 🙁

    • I had the same thing happen when i logged into my Amazon tablet last night. Kept my quest progress but Duff beers were 0 and crafting was -200. Hoping I can catch back up.

  13. Patric, can you please tell me what timezone you are in?? Because while I ultimately (after few days) beat your daily calendar targets, I am always behind the first few days of your calendar

    Like its Thursday now where I am, and I haven’t even met your Wednesday target. So would be nice to know your time zone, so I can calculate our time difference 🙂

    Also in the NEW banner, what’s that on your head? It looks to be some sort of headgear with an owl/eagle face, but the headgear TYPE is not clear 😮

    • West Coast. But 24hrs is 24hrs no matter where you are.

    • If you go to Act 1 Prizes there is a timer on the bottom. Currently mine says 11d 18 h. The goal is 63,000. You can create you own custom calendar.

    • It looks to me as if Patric starts on the day the update comes out, and counts it as a full day, with a 14 day event time. But if you only get the update at 6pm on Tuesday, you can’t meet his “requirement” for this first day. If you instead say the event starts Wednesday and take the 63000 and divide by 13 days instead of 14, you get roughly 4850 a day instead of 4500. So at the end of Thursday you need to be at 9700 instead of 13500, and that’s easy enough to meet, and we can all relax… haha.

    • I am on the West Coast…but, as Alissa said…this is a 24 hour calendar, and I don’t “buffer it,” because the math works out either way. Trust me…you’ll get everything you want, if you just log in every 4 hours, like every other major event.

      And that is a WWI German helmet on my head. I am a WWI history buff…and always thought they were fun, if extremely impractical. I had one for a while, but it is tiny… people’s heads were a lot smaller back then, apparently!

  14. Wow, I’m not even close. I’m sure I’ll get back on track, but this is the first time I haven’t hit the first prize on the right day. (Of course, I usually finish a few days early.)

  15. I think you should have stressed the bonus % stuff in that as a person progresses they’ll get more and more currency per round etc. As such, they shouldn’t panic that they’re a bit behind already. I’m already seeing semi-panic in the comments.

  16. 7690 so far, loggin 5x day and visiting neighbours, I hope it will pick up, ecause even the crazy 😜 freemium tappers like me are far beyond schedule! And I am using all the characters for fight and defend, except preemiums.

  17. I’ve been playing since yesterday and I just passed Tuesdays goal and its Thursday. This is playing at least 4 times today(wed) and 3 yesterday(tues). I am already screwed.

    • LOL! Comments like these are hilarious.

      Every event starts slow. This event more so, as the amount of currency you earn will significantly increase as the more items you place in your bonus area increases the payout your characters earn from fortifying and attacking. Just keep tapping at that pace and you’ll be caught up and passing the calendar by next week.

  18. Should I be worried that I’ve logged in every four hours since the update hit me yesterday and I’m already a day behind the calendar?

    • You should absolutely be worried. (Sarcasm) LOL!

      Every event starts slow.
