  1. For my mummy wiggum it wants me to do the rampage but it won’t allow me to. What do i need to do it

    1. I’m having the same problem. I’m guessing something happened with the update. The task is available, but it doesn’t show up on Mummy Wiggum’s list of things to do.

    2. I’m having the same issue. Thought maybe I had to free up Ralph for the task, but that didn’t work. Maybe an EA bug.

      1. I set any task for wiggum and that seemed to complete the questline miraculously. A commentor over at EA suggested the one hour task. Had a similar issue with womenet and the problem resolved as well.

  2. I’m trying to finish the mummy wiggum questline but now the event is over and I’m stuck on “Make Mummy Wiggum Feel Annoyed” as the task has disappeared. Any suggestions? Tia

  3. Has anyone else noticed they updated the dig site so that the broken column pieces won’t block the squares anymore? I wasted so many axes not seeing a little sliver of rock. I’m grateful.

  4. You need to proof read:

    Prize: Little Dune
    What Does It Do: Nothing, it’s a pile of bones

    Prize: Sandstone Statue
    What Does It Do: It’s a bridge you can place over water

    Prize: Ancient Dig
    What Does It Do: 12hr task for Snake, Rediscover Archeology. Animated when in use

    1. EB….I copied that from Alissa’s notes. So…yes…I am lazy, or trusting, or…wait…don’t care? LOL! We will absolutely do better in the future… Promise!

    2. This is wierd…someone used my name to post, but it wasn’t me…sorry Allisa and Patric, would never snipe at you like that.
      Whover is using my name…cut it out.
      Also, is it possible not to approve any posts using my name like this? I always post using ”ebron”.

      1. I thought that was weird… but thought you were just using another email to whine…so your “Ebron” trademark wasn’t besmirched! No worries. We still love you…no matter what you call yourself.

        After all…you are the “gold standard” of designing in TSTO (take a drink Tippie!)

        1. Thanks Patric, kind of unnerving to read a nit-picking negative post and have it attributed to yourself…too creepy. Whoever you are out there, find some other way to get your jollies.🤨

    3. Blow away the dunes, maybe there’s bones underneath.
      Knock over the statue. Boom, there’s a bridge.

  5. Sandstone Statue

    This is definitely one of my favorite items to Craft (doesn’t take up too much space, looks cool) 👍

    Ancient Dig

    The quickest way to reach 45 – 50 % Bonus Level at Old Relic Dig Site (since it’s 4%) is Craft 2. 😀

    Mummy Wiggum

    Snacking on scarabs (great Visual Tasks for this Event) 😂
