Halloween 2018 Act 2 is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s 10am here on the east coast and that means it’s time for Halloween Act 2…so have at it, assuming you can get into the game of course!

Remember…this is an automatic change in your game.  Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..

Questline should start right up for you and you’ll have to do a 8hr task with Springfielders

Act 2 runs until October 31st (when Act 3 will start)

Just what does Act 3 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look…

Here’s the storyline from EA for Act 2…

Werewolf decides to show the vampires how it’s done, but no-one is scared. She-Wolf steps up and begins converting Springfielders to monster minions. Homer and Ned start fighting the werewolves and decide to draw them in with a butcher shop. She-Wolf decides to step up her attacks and starts feasting on Springfielders. She-Wolf feels terrible and unhealthy after eating Springfielders. She questions whether it was a good idea.  Countess Dracula teases her for failing as well.

New Currency for Act 2

Werewolf fur!

So the ability to earn  is now gone.  Your counter prize track for Act 2 has reset to zero because you have zero .  So get cracking on those

You’ll earn  very similar to how you earned  during Act 1….

-Clearing Minions (earns 40 /tap, up from 35/tap during Act 1)
– Clearing Visitors in your Neighbor’s towns (earns 40 /tap)
-Daily Challenges (4000/each)
-Sending Characters to earn Pickaxes at the Holy Forge ( earning varies)

-Dig Site ( varies)


Act 2 Personal Prizes

Haunted Crossroads- 31,000 
Land Token- 73,000 

Screaming Stitch & Hem- 136,000 
Barking Good Butchery-179,000 
1000 Incantations (crafting)- 222,000 
She-Wolf- 287,000 


Act 2 Prizes…

If you didn’t collect them all… you can still access them by tapping on the “ACT  2” tab in the Personal Prizes area. As you can no longer collect items for them, your only option now is to pay donuts to outright buy each one left at the point you left off at. (Just like every other event recently.)

This is a THOH Episode Tie-In.  I’ll cover it in another post.

There’s also a new character related to the tie-in for 100 donuts. Again I’ll cover this in another post.


Crafting Items Unlocked for Act 2…

Remember for Act 2 Craftables you’ll need to be on crafting Level 4 and upgrade to Level 6.  (you’ll need to be on Level 7 for Act 3 crafting)

  1. Has there already been discussion about how disappointing it is for there to be no fog over Springfield this year?

  2. At the dig site, is there a maximum? I just increased my combined % by about 5% within the last little while (combination of crafting + items earned), and the # of event currency (now werewolf fur) didn’t change, and has been 540 per successful dig for a while. I’ve been trying to reverse engineer the math to see what the baseline should be?

    Also, thanks always for the wonderful posts! This has been my go-to site for a long time, and I always pick up great tips. 🙂

  3. Hey I just noticed I can send still send Countess Vampire on a quest that earns event currency. Her quest to “Introduce Herself” earns 120 fur every 4 hours. You just have to find her in your Springfield to start her quest.

    Should help collecting a little extra fur for everyone. 👍

  13. Worst event ever! I really play frequently, 3-4 times a day. But this event is impossible to manage without throwing money at EA. The pick axe / shovel mini game is based on pure luck. I was not even close to count grandpa because I always needed up to 30 pick axes to find a tressure. And of course I didn’t got countess dracula. Seriously – I have a job. Screw this event. And worst of it: the storyline without showing any text. The entire event is an impossible to manage and unfinished product!!

  14. Got a good headstart too. With a little luck on the digsite i will be heading for werewolf Milhouse within an hour. Made the mistake tho to accidently clear the youngsters from their novel task just 1.5 hours before act 2. Also my strategy on the dig site bonus wasn’t the best. But anyway, it won’t be a terrible grinding act 2
    The act 2 grinding prices are kinda meh either, i will save the currency for act 3. Probably it will give much more opportunities for designing. Who needs all those bones anyway. I don’t even have a dog

  22. I am having a little issue. It has to do with the tappable turkey.. When this event auto-downloaded on my device the day prior to the event, I tapped my turkey once, followed it behind a row of condos, and it never emerged! I made my town “invisible”, except characters, and have been searching for my turkey for over 2 weeks!! I’ve been through my entire inventory so many times, it’s pathetic. I miss my tappable, squawking, phamaceutical-generating-for-SH fowl. Any thoughts? So strange!! Thanks and Happy Halloween! 🎃

      P.S. Like a lost TV remote, he may simply show up. 🤞

    • If you mean Bigclaw, then Homer has a 3-hour task with it. You then can find Homer fighting it and the Bigclaw will reappear (the bird had disappeared on me at least once). If you mean some other “turkey”, then I have no idea. Good luck!
