Bart Royale Prize Guide: Act 1, Prize 3 Training Grounds

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 THIRD Prize of this Event:
The Training Grounds.

Unlocks as Prize #3 on the Bart Royale Prize Wheel

Once you’ve collected 24,600  you’ll automatically be awarded the rink and you’ll see this message popup:

Size: 9×8
Earns: Nada…they are decorations.
Conform-O-Meter: Training grounds are Obedience +5.
What does it Do: There is ongoing animation when one of the kids are performing a task there.
Other Info: Can be places grass/beach/dirt. **Can’t be placed in “bonus perimeter” so no bonus earning

Once it is placed, dialogue and tasks will pop up. Unlocks two sets of tasks

 General Mischief Pt. 1 General
Bart : Okay babies, pull up your training pants and put down your baby bottles.
Milhouse : He doesn’t know how accurate that statement is.
General Bart : It’s time to get serious. I need you all running drills until sundown. Now get to it! After task
Martin : I must protest – I was born a lover not a fighter! Although I’ve done neither.
Milhouse : My dad told me about his time in the army… I was expecting a preemptive dishonorable discharge like he got.
Ralph : I can’t feel my hands. Which means I can be my own stranger-danger!
GeneralBart : Okay, forget running drills, there’s no actual sundown in this town any way.

General Mischief Part 2
GeneralBart : Okay let’s try this again.
GeneralBart : Pretend your parents sent you to bed but made the mistake of not turning on your baby monitors…
Milhouse : Whee, I suddenly have so much energy! I’m getting away with stuff! GeneralBart : NOW MOVE IT, MAGGOTS!

After task
Luann : Milhouse, bedtime!
Milhouse : *snores*
Luann : Well, now we know what war is good for!

Bottles are earned, as well as game cash and XP…so, send as many kids as you can for each task for extra cash/currency/XP.

That’s it for this prize… Keep Tapping Every 4 hours to “get them all!”

  1. Another no permanent tasks item? Bummer.

  2. The Training Grounds – done earning Prizes for Act One. I guess this is my least favorite (animation is funny, but no permanent Tasks for Characters? Doesn’t generate XP and $? Then into Storage with it!) 🤔

  3. I earned General Bart a couple of days ago, have had my first round of bonuts and will get the 350 scraps today. So that’s me done for the Act. I’m not interested in Pyro. I’ll keep tapping ruffians when I see them and maybe do a daily challenge if it’s worth it to get a second bonut round or some more crafting currency but I’d rather my characters earned cash and XP. This event isn’t really one for me – I’m crossing my fingers for Valentine’s Day!

  4. im at 32.5k and have been behind for 2 days since the start. how do i catch up. i do the 4 hour tapping at least 5 ~6 times a day and im still behind. what am i doing wrong?? my playscape is at 12.25% and im on level 5. xP almost close to getting general bart.

  5. I’m having issues keeping up! Life continues to plop in when I least need it to in order to continue the events. My wife says I have a problem. I don’t think so… It’s not an addiction (it is). Currently, I believe I’m right around the mark from 2 days ago. I just started the questline for the training grounds. Any way besides spending cash that I’ll be able to keep up with the timeline? Advice please!

    • There is a ton of time left in this Act…so just tap as much as you can. I am sure you’ll hit the mark… Just make sure you have everyone who CAN fight the battles, doing so. If you can set your timer for every 4 hours…it will take just a couple of minutes to clear and reset the battles. You can do it anywhere you have a connection…so tap, tap, tap!

  6. Training Grounds – would be nice if this offered Permanent Tasks for Characters (cause at the moment, it just offers +5 increased Obedience rating using a large 9×8 space)! 🤔

    Already got General Bart tonight !👍

  7. How about the war being because these damn kids are still living at home even though they are in their 30s?

    • LOL… welcome to life with Millennials… at least statistically. Actually, we have been blessed with five, industrious and independent girls. Not a “boomerang” in the bunch!

  8. 1/2 percent bonus disappeared on me! It told me to look in storage but it was not there. 😭😭😭😭😫😩
    Got Bart’s skin last night. I am on his second task. Are the tasks necessary to complete? They do give bottles but no crafting currency.

  9. I would rather they say “death from above…”

  10. I am one day behind as my download didn’t come through for almost 24hrs after the event started! I’m hoping I catch up.

    • I was actually 2days behind and I got Bart’s skin this morning the only add person I have is crazy cat lady it was work to get there but I set a timer to let me know every 4 hours you can do it if you can log in every 4 hours and follow the task. Good luck

  11. I have a weird problem with my game – when I logged on earlier, all the mini-events that I completed when they came out popped up one after the other (I had to clear each). After that, when I click on character icons, my screen does not go to them. I now have the daily bonus we used to get, and the rail yard is once again restricted to one use/week. I called EA and all they did was send an email with troubleshooting tips, all of which I had already tried. Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix? Thanks!

    • Very odd… have you uninstalled, and reinstalled with your correct username?
      Are you running more than one device (there can be some whacky stuff that happens when you “cross-play” on multiple devices.

      • Yes, I uninstalled and reinstalled the game. I only used one device, until this happened and I used another to see if it was the device’s fault. I also noticed that Burns’ Money Mountain is also reset. I called EA twice, and the second person I talked to said I should wait 24 hours after the occurrence to see if the issue is resolved, and 24 hours later, it isn’t. Very frustrating…

      • UPDATE: I bit the bullet and rolled back my game to before this happened, so I lost a day of progress – at least I shouldn’t miss out on Pyro, since I was a bit ahead on the calendar. 🙂

  12. Sorry off topic, does the perimeter area increase from the current 2 deep tiles? I’m thinking about my design and which items to craft. Thank you 😊🇬🇧

  13. Is there a permanent task there once you finish general mischief 1 & 2?

  14. I was a couple of days behind as well because it did not automatically update and I thought I had to finish the ice cream building event first. I was so absorbed in the chili cook off. A past mini event I missed out on.
    Currently at 18k beer bottles and I am confident I can catch up to get PYRO! I use bluestacks and for major updates it hasn’t been automatically installing. I put the new bart statue next to the moonshine distillery and Groundskeeper Willie’s shack. 😛 Loving this event.<3

    • You should place the BART statue within the bonus perimeter during the event. It earns a fairly large percentage.

  15. Really messed up glitch here… when I first checked the quest (General Mischief pt. 1) I saw that the youngsters earned bottles – and quite a few of them! I decided to delay it, as it was a 12hr task and I wanted to do it overnight. Now, after checking again, the bottle rewards have disappeared, and the quest only offers cash/xp.

  16. Ive only just started it wasnt showing as update :/ then it was forced update im so far behind only 4900 bottles urgh im hoping i can catch up looks interesting so far

  17. “Bottles are earned, as well as game cash and XP…so, send as many kids as you can for each task for extra cash/currency/XP.”

    How I wish I had read this post first!

    • Me, too! I sent a bunch of freemium kids on them yesterday morning and overnight but since the playscape kids are always the first thing I clear and reset (so I don’t do something dumb like send them to recycle without thinking about it), I had no idea they could’ve earned bottles. I wonder how many I missed out on?

      • If I remember correctly it was about 10-15 bottles more per person if you compare doing 4 hour task 3x vs a 12 hour task. They did not earn any crafting currency though

  18. I’m at about 30,000 bottles now, have trenches, two sets of dragons teeth, and the dodgeball court and I play every day several times a day. Yet some of my neighbors have 80,000. How? On the other hand, I have three neighbors who are still playing daily, but have zero bottles. I checked, and they’ve been playing every day. I’ll bet they don’t even know about this event. My iPad, didn’t automatically download the update, but to this forum, I knew a new event had hit, and I learned that I had to uninstall my game and reinstall it. I wonder how many other players don’t know about this event? I would be lost without Addicts. Love you guys! ❤️

    • There are loads of ways to “cheat” using bonuts…so just stay on track, and be happy that you are playing the game well…and staying ahead of the calendar.

      As far as neighbors not playing….I have a handful as well. But, it could also be that they are just taking a break, or not interested in the update. The event is getting “mixed reviews,” and isn’t floating everyone’s boats. I like it OK…but, it is a huge letdown after the amazing Christmas Event.

      • Don’t agree with you there Patric. I’m really enjoying this event so far but did not really think much of the Christmas one. Ok, I finished up with some nice stuff but there was very little to do. I do understand however for some that the simpler format, fitted into their holiday routine better, without the grind as in this new update.
        Extra tapping doesn’t bother me, bring on phase 2.
