Springfield Jobs- Act II Calendar and Math for Getting It All!

See?  I do believe I told you that Act I was do-able…if you stayed on top of it. And it was. Some barely finished, while others, like myself, was done days ago.  And some, got struck sideways by the “RollBack Glitch.”  COME ON EA…Get on it!!

Well…for Act II, there is some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the daily minimums are actually smaller than Act I.  The bad news, is that this is because the act is spread across an even LONGER period of time.

How long?  How does 17.5 days strike you?  Well…for me, it strikes me like a steak and kidney pie in the face…good and bad. I am a bit of an Anglophile, so I am looking forward to all of the stuff from “Jolly Old England.” I have saved up a ton of crafting currency, and stockpiled donuts…so I am READY!

Let’s take a look at the numbers, and what you can win by hitting the targets!

As you have figured out…nothing really changes much, except for the crafting currency, which has changed from stolen paintings, to “crown-less jewels.”

I had to look up what the heck the MoHo house was, but thought I remembered Nigel. Or maybe he is just that archetypal English Dude who looks and sounds like David Niven. I’ll have to do more research.


And here is the Digital Version…I can’t wait to add Chaucer to the rest of the characters that already haunt Springfield. The “afterlife” is getting quite cluttered around here!

OK…Off to work on my jump start!  I am going to start a buying spree…and don’t even have to convert my donuts to pounds!

Let us know what you think about Act II.  You know we LOVE to hear from you! (Did that sound sincere?  Would be be better if I said it with an English accent?).

  1. I am quite fortunate to have a lot of the heist qualifying characters in my town (perhaps that says something about me with such a large criminal element!) but I will unlock the final prize tomorrow, 9 days early and while I play 4 or 5 times a day depending on my schedule, I cannot believe I now have nothing to do for over a week other than accrue Bonuts (which I have already been doing for a couple of days). This event is a bit of a grindfest and way too long in my opinion.


  2. I never realised that I was 3 days ahead of the calendar (without any premiums) since I just received the Queen’s Carriage a few hours ago and that there are still 10 days left of this act. I hope I can get Moho House and Nigel by Thursday and if anyone has Moho House already how have you added it to your town since it is another very “tall” building.


  3. By the end of this event I wonder how much a certain house that is white will have changed. I will get the carriage tomorrow and hopefully can start racking up bonuts.


  4. I like having more time for Act 2. I only got to Primo in Act 1 and even then had to pay 15 donuts for him. The problem with the iPhone update was enough of a delay to put me even further behind than real life delays….

    Slower events make it much easier to participate. Anybody who gets bored – go find something else to do!!! There are plenty of free games and even (gasp!) books to read.

  5. Act 2 crafting items for Act 2 still locked. Anyone have any ideas?


  6. I’m well ahead of the prize track; I think I might be on track to get the Queen’s Carriage sometime tomorrow or so — but that’s with all the premium characters, so YMMV, and all that.

    Personally, I’m already thrilled with this event, for one of the non-prize-track item: I finally have a proper TARDIS in my Springfield! What more could a Whovian want? Nevermind… I actually know the answer to that: four angel statues. (I’ll just have to use the hedges for now.)


    • Ok..not being a “Dr. Who” fan, I had to google Tardis to see what you were talking about. And in pure Tardis fashion, I couldn’t know that I had to be a Dr Who fan to know to respond that it had to do with Dr Who, without first going forward to come back here. Ah. Space/time…it’s relative.

      • If you have Amazon Prime and have never been exposed to Dr. Who, I wholeheartedly recommend getting your feet wet with “Blink” – that’s Season 3, Episode 11.* It’s one of the very best episodes — and as a bonus, it’ll explain my reference to angel statues. 😀

        * Note that “Season 3” is actually a bit of a misnomer, since the series has been running on and off since the ’60s.


    • I have several TARDISs. I plan on hiding them around town after the event.


  7. In act1 I was right in schedual finishing up.
    In act2 I’m off to a great lead with earning Prince Albert a few minutes ago (noon EST Sunday 8apr18)
    It makes me happy that legs and company has joined in on the heisting.


  8. Is anyone else experiencing a glitch in Act 2? Everything was going well. I got the first 2 items (both phonebooths) and now it won’t let me craft more items for England. It keeps saying I have to “unlock Act 2.” Hello… i already did!


    • Yes I am, and can still play. Only thing is after tapping it only collects the nearest 2 buildings or characters. Not going to log out or uninstall game because the last time I did I couldn’t get back in the game for 2 days.


  9. I’m having a Jolly time with Act 2 because –

    I’ve waited patiently for a British theme
    I’m 2.5 days away from getting the Queen’s Carriage
    I ♥️ the unlocked Craftables
    Yay Bonuts


    • I figure I’ll have the carriage about the same time, and I am on track to get close to 100,000 total event currency … yah Bonut chances


  10. Thanks to the 3 daily challenges saved up, I am actually on track with the calendar since I got the Free Land Token earlier. I am glad that there are not too many things available to craft in this act (5 decorations, 2 buildings and a Free Land Token). I’m not sure if its a good strategy to either increase the bonus to 20% at the tower using the new crafting decorations first or just save up for the 2 buildings available to craft first.


    • You can actually put all you bonus items at the tower as all your characters can be sent there and don’t need to be sent to the building from the first section at all.


      • I was thinking of doing that but I still use the Museum and send about half of my characters there and the other half at the Tower. I did not want to move the act 1 craftables to the Tower because it would still be cluttered since my museum already looks cluttered as it is. I was thinking of using extra guards and beefeaters at the Museum to keep the bonus at 20% when I move the act 1 items but I still need to save up for the 2 craftable buildings.


  11. Going to be behind on this event now as I’m waiting for EA to roll back my game so I can craft the act 2 craftables. Mentioned in my message to them that I’ve been suffering with the rollback glitch since the start of this event and that since messaging them previously a few weeks ago nothing has happened so hopefully they will do something about that too. Really the smaller tap radius and other issues are bearable mainly all I really want back is my character selector.


    • You could always send your characters on their missions from the event button and then visit the unemployment office for the rest (keep in mind Cecil will do his 1mil task if you use the unemployment office so I have him in my inventory)


    • I have messaged them repeatedly about the roll back glitch and nothing
