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 It was repealed in 1933 by ratification of the Twenty-First Amendment on December 5, 1933.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 questline, you’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.
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!
And that completes the details of the third Homer vs 18th Amendment prize!
