Springfield Jobs – Prize Guide – Nana Sophie

We are sent round the world once again, in hopes of collecting art, buildings and artifacts relating to some of the finest artistic capitals in the world (sorry Australia).  There are a TON of items to be won and crafted, and we are here to cover some of the benefits for winning them, which can linger long after the event is over!

The 7th Prize to be awarded for Act 1, Nana Sophie Mussolini (Milhouse’s Grandma)!
Let’s take a look!
Let’s face it…if you have any Italian friends, especially if you are in the “baby boomer” age group, you know someone like Grandma Mussolini…aka Nana Sophie.  I knew a bunch of them…and they all scared me to death.  One of my best friends was of Italian descent…and an amazing guitar player with a very complicated family(there were implications of connections with other families, but it was never discussed)…including a grandma who often would give someone the “evil eye” if she didn’t like them. I’m not going to say that bad stuff actually happened with this well-known Italian curse…but, I never wanted to take the chance. I was always on my best behavior around her. It just made sense.

Most of the Italians I knew were from farming families who all gave off the sense that there was more than “family” in their connections, but you don’t have to be in the “mob” to be in the Italian network. As immigrants, they stayed close and connected, and remain so today. One of the biggest supporters and financial contributors to our High School was a great man named Aldo Rossi, who became wealthy selling off parcels of the family farm, as Portland grew to gobble up space for the suburbs to sprawl. But he still worked the farm every day…years after he had to. It’s what he did. He was a great guy…but his wife scared the hell out of all of us. But, I digress…

Nana Sophie is Milhouse’s Italian grandma. According the Wiki, “She is from Italy and hates the English language, because an American WWII soldier left her pregnant with Milhouse’s uncle Bastardo. She used to whip Milhouse whenever he spoke English instead of Italian.”

OK then. 

She is a hilarious character in our game…but you REALLY have to Grind for her…as in 40,120 Paintings… YIKES!!! And she doesn’t even earn Event Currency! But, you can yell all you want, unless you are yelling in Italian, she won’t listen.

She is a grandma…pay her some respect…or you’ll be on the receiving end of a switch!

  2. P.s. when i called the first time the day after the glitch i got an uneducated person who just sent me the standard ” try these things to fix your game email.” The second time they told me many people had it and the rollback didn’t fix the problem and to wait for the miraculous fix that will happen “sometime, someday”. Meanwhile, the game has lost a fair bit of my enthusiasm as i play a broken game.

    I’m very disappointed. They’ve been knowledgeable and helpful in the past.


  3. How many donuts is too much to pay for her?


  4. Nana Sophie Mussolini (Milhouse’s Grandma) is too funny and now this completist wants Uncle Bastardo (come on, EA, bring on the other Millhouse Relatives)👍🤣


  5. I couldn’t get into my game for 4 days so I don’t think I’m going to be able to get her ☹️


  6. I might come up a little short this act, but I’ll drop a dozen or so donuts on a character if I need to.


  7. Got her days ago in my premium A game, but will probably miss her in my B game. Mostly due to the fact that I was really sick with the flu for two weeks, and couldn’t even find the energy to tap regularly. Plus, the thought of keeping up with more than one town for the ridiculously long time this event is running kind of put me off right at the start.


  8. Why do they all look like Mulhouse?
    I suspect insects LOL


  9. 5k to go, and 34 hours to go! Lets go!
