Homer vs 18th Amendment Prize Breakdown: Canadian Checkpoint + Free Land Token

Aloha Amazing, Awesome, Aspiring Alcoholics and Ale Addicts,

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “A”)

 

The Eighteenth Amendment (Amendment XVIII) of the United States Constitution effectively established the prohibition of alcoholic beverages in the United States by declaring the production, transport, and sale of alcohol (though not the consumption or private possession) illegal. The separate Volstead Act set down methods for enforcing the Eighteenth Amendment, and defined which “intoxicating liquors” were prohibited, and which were excluded from prohibition (e.g., for medical and religious purposes). President Woodrow Wilson vetoed the bill, but the House of Representatives overrode the veto, and the Senate did so as well the next day. The Volstead Act set the starting date for nationwide prohibition for January 17, 1920, which was the earliest day allowed by the Eighteenth Amendment. The Amendment was in effect for the following 13 years. It was repealed in 1933 by ratification of the Twenty-First Amendment on December 5, 1933.

That’s enough of a history lesson!

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the Pass, Puff, Puff questlineyou’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

Let’s take a look at the details of the third prize, the Canadian Checkpoint and Free Land Token. What it does and how you unlock it…

The third prize unlocked during the Homer vs 18th Amendment Mini Event is the Canadian Checkpoint:

 

Here are some more details behind it…

How You Unlock It: Pass, Puff, Puff Pt. 3
Make Homer Brew Refreshments – 3hrs
Collect Drinks – x420

Once you’ve completed that task you’ll automatically be awarded the Canadian Checkpoint and you’ll be greeted with a popup message giving you the option to store or place it in your Springfield immediately. 

Once placed, it will require a 4 hour construction build time.

Canadian Checkpoint
Size:
9×8
Conform-O-Meter Impact: 
Obedience +10
What does it do: Earns $200, 20xp every 12 hours. Also comes with a Free Land Token.

It also comes with some funny dialogue.

Border Agent: Welcome to Canada, eh? Home of the constant apology. We’re sorry for having such a lame motto.

Homer: You can make it up to me by not checking my trunk.

Border Agent: Sounds fair to me!

More about the Canadian Checkpoint and other Canadian references can be found in this article here on the 150th anniversary of Canada.

 

And that completes the details of the third Homer vs 18th Amendment prize!

  1. Canadian Checkpoint – not enough ‘eh’ but it will have to do (please feel free to continue giving away Land Tokens , EA)😀🇨🇦

  2. I put the Canadian border at the airport for now. Other then strong beer, legalized marijuana, ice and tree’s not much else available to build a Canadian part of town.

    P.s I saw someone mention Krustyland for the first time in a while. Has there ever been a exclusive Krustyland event before my time?

  3. I created a Canadian border with maple trees and Virgil’s Cabin in my top right corner, which I’m quite happy with. Unfortunately I can’t seem to get the flag outside the cabin to fly. Tapping doesn’t seem to do it and the original prize guide doesn’t shed any light. Can anyone help?

    • I believe that if you have Grant Connor (who comes with the Springfield Hunting Supplies) and send him on his 24 hour task “Live Off the Land”, he can go to Virgil’s Cabin and animate it because it is a “Camping Building” but it only works if he is very close to the Cabin or he will go to another location for the task (similar to getting Wise Guy or Babysitter Bandit to a specific house such as the Bad Dream House). If you want to know the other “Camping Buildings” available then check the Should I Buy post on Grant and the Hunting Supplies. Other than that, there are no direct permanent tasks at Virgil’s Cabin at the moment.

    • As soon as they give us another strip of land I will also place my border crossing at the top right corner. My river will then empty into the lake that is already located up there:

  4. I totally forgot this event was still going on. Shows what an impression it made on me.

  5. I’m still mad about no longer being able to buy land with game cash. Land expansion was really the only reason to tap for cash. I’m sitting on almost $400,000,000 with nothing to spend it on and nowhere to put it. I absolutely refuse to spend real money on donuts while this is the way it is. With the free items from events becoming less and less desirable, there’s little reason for me to keep tapping. Way to go EA.
    Also, WHY, WHY, WHY will EA not open up the rest of the land on the Springfield Heights side of the mountains to even it up with main side?

    • You can always use that cash to grind lots of donuts, with that much cash, Bloodmobile or RTT trucks would be beneficial, or KEM if you prefer

    • My thoughts exactly!
      I guesstimate that I will hit the 1 billion game cash mark at the beginning of summer.

    • I know what you mean. I have over 1.2 Billion now, and plenty of donuts. What I really want is a better menu system for all of the stored junk and a trash can to put the junk grind items that I don’t have room for.
      Does any one go to Krustyland anymore?

      • YES! Daily for sync reasons. I have multiple OS devices and it helps transfer my phone gains to ipad gains and back again everyday. Plus as crappy as it is the balloon game does give donuts once every 4 months……..

      • I do at least twice a day! I play Sideshow You twice a day. I’m trying to hit a million Krustyland Tickets again.

  6. Taking me longer to finish this mini event than I thought it would. That’s ok though, just saying. Possibly have final item by late Sunday.
