Halloween 2018 is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Treehouse of Horror Event Ends TOMORROW November 14th. 

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.

As far as what is going to happen AFTER the Event… well, we can’t know… until it is over. Until then all we can do is speculate. So, patience. We all have to verify what happens after together.

But there’s a good chance you’ll see a mini event hit our games once this event is over…

Now as far as to what is going with the Event, here is a brief rundown…

  • Questlines linked directly to the progression of the Event will go. Like the Main Questlines that pulled you through all 3 Acts.
  • However, the questlines linked directly to the prizes and Premium Characters you’ve won will remain. (so Womenhet, Voodoo Queen etc)
  • The event removal will require an app store update to fully remove it from your game.  So don’t panic when the timer runs down and the event isn’t out of your game…  It will require an app store update to remove everything.

I know some of you still try to push that last few minutes of the collection as far as you can. However, with the last few events EA has really shut off the ability to play on “borrowed time”.  In other words, once the timer runs out the ability to collect prizes ends.  So don’t count on getting any extra time with this one.  Try to finish everything up before the timer runs out tomorrow morning. 

And don’t forget to upgrade! Use em or lose em! And don’t forget to buy the cash items in the store!  Once they’re gone they’re gone.

So tap those last few minions and relax and wait to see what EA has next in store for us.

Oh and don’t be surprised if we see a mini-event hit tomorrow with the removal.  As we’ve been saying for a long time…mini-events are downtime.  There’s never going to be a period where nothing is going on in the game, they’ll constantly update to keep players engaged.  They may be small updates, designed to finish quickly and then enjoy some downtime before a timer runs out, but you’ll never see a massive amount of time without new content in this game.  You may get a day or two, but not weeks.

Are you sad to see the event go?  Or ready for it to finally be over?  How did you do with the prizes?  Get everything you wanted?  What are you hoping to see next?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. Need some advice, friends! The digging got tedious for me, and I already had all the prizes, and I never got around to using up all my shovels, before the event ended. I meant to, in order to get bonuts, but that never ended up happening. So, I have over 1600 shovels, and I just did a dig and got 555 XP when I found the relic. That seems like a really good XP payout. Would you recommend I spend 5 donuts on the 24hr 5X payout on the collider, and then use up all those shovels that day? I am a Level 539 player with a 275% conformity bonus. Thanks!

  2. Anyone having trouble with the Chief Wiggum mummy quest line? I have updated the app, and now the Pt2 – Make Mummy Wiggum feel annoyed does not give an option to select the job for the quest. I can see “RAMPAGE!” is locked (8hr job) but nothing specific for feeling annoyed.

    • It was weird for me. The “annoyed” task actually ended up sending him to get coffee. Or donuts. Whichever task that one is. I sent him on that and it moved on to the next act. I don’t know why the quest wording doesn’t match the task.

  3. Does anyone know what other characters other than The Comic Book Guy can go to the house of nightmares / horrors ? Thanks in advance. 😉

    • I know Homer, Bart, Lisa, Marge and Willie have tasks here but any characters with the task to go to homes (Lucille Botz 24h, Wise Guy 12h etc.) can go here if they are next to this building so that would be useful if you want the animation to last longer (Lucille’s 24 hour task is the longest one to animate it).

      I’m sorry to here that you missed the female mummy and the hovel. I hope you’re feeling better now. 🙂 If its any consolation, they weren’t really special because the hovel only generates cash and xp like the Transylvania buildings but there’s no animation or tasks with it unlike the Transylvania buildings so it would only be useful for in a design of an Egyptian area. The female mummy has 2 BH (Brown House) tasks but she does have a neat 8 hour task. She does have a glitch in her questline now that the event finished in which people cannot get past part 2 and 3.

      It would be a great idea if EA gives everyone a final deadline of 24 hours once Act 3 ended to get the final (or next) prize and crafting items for anyone that is close to the last items and others can just get more bonuts. There used to be leniency after an event ended to get more currency for a few hours but now it just cuts it all off once the timer has run out.

      • Hi Santos I. Harper, thank you so much for taking the time to answer my question. I also noticed that EA won’t let us keep playing until the very last minute. Believe me, took advantage of that on several occasions in order to be able to get that last prize or to craft an item. Oh well I guess they want to force us to buy the items we miss. Again thanks for your help. Enjoy your day.😉

  4. I agree with all of you. Especially with the crafting aspect of the event. I wasn’t able to get the mud hovel or the female mummy. (Can’t remember.her name) geez. Any way, I really upset about that even though it’s my fault. I got sick and the antibiotics the Dr gave me knocked me on my butt. So I
    Ended up over sleeping. All I needed was to log on 2 more times and I would have made it. Gerrrrrrrrrr. 😬😠😡 I didn’t even get the chance to buy the mummy. I also wanted to craft multiples of some items but that’s not happening now. Shouldn’t have hoarded. The currency. 😎 all in all. I enjoyed the event but disappointed I didn’t have the chance to finish. It is what it is………

  5. Nice event, not awesome, but I enjoyed it. As always the event ran to long, though this one seemed to be much harder to get all the craft currency one would have liked. I was able to craft one of everything but I had hoped to of gotten a few multiples of certain items. I’m ticked that EA didn’t offer witch Marge’s cauldron or Heck House yet again this Halloween. And I am irritated that EA gives us all this land to unlock without practically any way to unlock it. What?! We got three measly tiles and I still have Krusty land and part of my zoo left in pig sty piles waiting for me to unlock land. I do appreciate that EA gave us a block of opened land, my only beef with that is I’d like to place it where I need or want it. All in all I liked this event but I am completely ready for something new.

  6. Good Halloween event…..and counting the days til, Black Friday……

    My event has ended in the game but the update is still pending being posted in the GooglePlay store. So I am not setting anybody onto jobs until I can update and see who I need for the mini event.

  7. I put off buying some extras of the cash items and spending out my last ~6k currency, but more importantly buying the Frankensteins castle and some mystery box stuff 😢 My fault for putting it off (and my wife’s fault for being sick last night/my work’s fault for making me work this morning 😠) but I’m still bummed.

    Overall I really enjoyed the event, and at least now I have extra doughnuts for Xmas/Black Friday deals!

  8. Does anyone know what the prizes from the ancient dig site will be? So far I have gotten dead trees, ruined wall, bone pile, gargoyle wall and iron wall. I have a feeling that is gonna be pretty much the majority of what will be awarded, but I would like to assume that there will be at least one or two bigger prizes.

  9. disappointed, events usually end at 10am. this ended??? it locked the last prize i was to buy and won’t let me finish the womanhet line. second big event in a row that has been messed up for me. such is life, i guess.

    • I really loved this event, but I was also disappointed with how difficult the crafting items were to get…I wanted to get more sand dunes to create a proper “desert” around the Egyptian goodies.
      Also, my son just started playing this game, and it didn’t let him finish the “Womanhet” line, either. That was a bummer.
      Also, it would be really cool if every THOH we could send all the kids out on jobs trick-or-treating. I know the nightmare pile sends them out, but only one at a time. It was really fun to see all the kids roaming the neighborhood at once, like real Halloween 🎃!
      Finally, I was so happy with THOH, BRING ON CHRISTMAS!

  10. I really liked this event with Act 1 being my favourite act and the only area that I have designed yet. I like that the elements from the toaster event returned with this event. I hope we can still keep digging after today like the excavation site from last year but the prizes should be better than the ones at the excavation site, I was thinking that some of the crafting items should be the prizes at the dig site (the dunes, pottery, trees, shrubs, and bones would make excellent prizes while the craftable buildings should be the rare prizes). I did manage to craft 4 chalets and cottages which is a positive even though I didn’t get many craftable decorations.

    I say this for every event but I wish EA would stop being so stingy on the crafting currency and that the bonus areas would increase crafting currency as well as prize track currency (maybe its because I play the events without any premiums which might make the crafting currency harder to earn). I also wish that there were more than 3 land tokens in this event (maybe there should of been more tokens with the relic prize track) and that when we place the first item in the event we get the land tokens with it instead of letting EA decide where to place the item and not being able to buy the land next to the decided place.

  11. For some reason, crafting was brutal for me this event. I haven’t unlocked the mudbrick hovel and probably won’t be getting one 🙁

    • i almost had it and it locked back up and i was unable to get it. 😣

    • I also fell short of the mudbrick hovel. I finished the prize track super early thanks to the tween lit building but then stopped grinding every 4 hours. Had I logged in just a bit more during the last week of the event I would have gotten it. More or likely it will return, but probably as a donut purchase.

  12. The aspect that ruined this event for me was the positioning of the free land above the previous zoo event, so I can’t add land to its right. I mucked up the krusyland conversion by not buying out all the spare land, so I’m a bit short. Have 9 land squares waiting, now just trying to work out how to use them to fit everything in so things look good. They need to have another way to ge land, even donut purchases for land. The game is based on design and building Springfield, but they are limiting that. I haven’t purchssed some items because I just don’t have the land to put it on nicely. I’ve been playing since day 1, already had my previous Springfield nuked with everyone else when they restarted, I don’t really want to do that again to arrange everything over as I just don’t have that sort of time. Just need more land to accomodate it all.

  13. Thanks to the Tweenlit Building, I just hit 1 million wraps. The bonuts didn’t quite pay for the building (even with the ones I also got in Act 2), but they came close, which is actually pretty awesome.

  14. I really couldn’t get into this event, there was nothing really in it that I wanted. It was the same as last year, the monsters I got from that (the Wiggum beast, or whatever and so on) have been stored away since last November. However, this year I didn’t even finish the first act. I am looking forward to Christmas, though, as always 🙂
