Salutations Senors, Senoras, Senoritas, Statisticians & Strategists,
(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter ‘S’)
What better way to spend your time than talking math. So from time-to-time, I’ll come to you with a post that delves into the wonderful world of numbers, stats, and/or strategies.
While we’ve previously discussed Springfield Downs and the Go Kart Track last year, we’ll continue to look at most of the Minigames found within our game. We continue our journey today with Where’s Maggie!
The Where’s Maggie minigame can be played at the Playdough Factory every 16 hours.
The objective of the minigame is to find Maggie who is hidden in the vicinity of one of a selected group of buildings. Once the game begins the player has a specific amount of time to find her and conclude the game by tapping on the base of building where she is located. The standard reward is 500 and 200 .
The minimum search time is 30 seconds, which is increased according to the number of buildings the player has where Maggie can hide. The first one of each different type of building adds 2 seconds to the countdown, while the second to forth add 0.5 second each up to a maximum of 2 minutes. The minigame can be played every 16 hours but cannot be started if Maggie is busy.
Where is Maggie?
Here are the buildings where Maggie can be found:
First Church of Springfield
Lard Lad Donuts
Ziff Corp Office Building
Maggie is normally on top of a building. There are exceptions, though: Maggie may also hide sitting in the doughnut’s hole of the large figure (mascot) at Lard Lad Donuts, and sometimes she is not on top of, but rather in the entrance area of Springfield Elementary or the Springfield Wax Museum, or in the garage entrance of the Simpson House.
I Found Maggie!
When successful 3 times (not necessarily in a row), the player selects one of three boxes to win one, two, or three donuts, as with the bonus levels and bonus gifts on Events. If the player doesn’t win three donuts on the first try, there is an option to spend $150,000 Cash each to open one or both of the remaining two boxes.
Tips and Strategies
- Turn up your volume while searching for Maggie as she can be heard sucking on her pacifier.
- Place the buildings where Maggie can hide near the Playdough Factory.
- Build multiples of those buildings to increase the time up to 2 minutes, but don’t go overboard or it can be harder to find Maggie.
- Once you find Maggie, you need to tap the base of the building where you spot Maggie, not on Maggie herself, otherwise the game doesn’t recognize that you found her.
- If time has nearly run out, you can abruptly force close the game, and will have the opportunity to restart the game much sooner than 16 hours later.
Do you play Where’s Maggie? How many days does it take you to earn donuts? Do you always go for 3 donuts? How much time is on your search clock? Which building is the easiest to spot Maggie? Which is the hardest? What stats or strategy related topic would you liked discussed? Share your thoughts. You know we love hearing from you. And be sure to come back soon for the Where’s Maggie minigame.
