Christmas 2018 Week 2 Is About to Start

Note: If you’re having trouble with unlocking your Pageant booth it’s not the game…it’s you.  Please read this post.  There’s even a video to watch on that explains it.  I can’t help you if you don’t want to read or watch a video…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow morning, Wednesday, December 12th, Week 2 (Act 2) of Christmas will be starting.  The official start time is 10am ET (1500 GMT).

While the Week 1 questline won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Week 2 starts, some of the premium items will be leaving the store.

So if you planned to purchase Kathy or the Acrobat (SIBs linked) do so before they leave our games tomorrow morning. (It doesn’t appear that they will help with Week 2, they’re unique to week 1)

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Week 2 to start…

As we know Bart will be telling the story during Week 2.  Characters needed for week 2 tasks are:
Mr. Burns

There will also be three new premium characters introduced during week 2, all three of those characters will be able to help with the currency earning.  (524 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase all three characters)

And that’s it my friends!  Be prepared for Week 2 to start up tomorrow morning!

Thoughts on week 1?  Ready for week 2?  Excited to see where Bart takes the story?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. Thanks for the donut total. All set to go. This time I might use them for event currency instead of doing the questline first

  2. The User Mistake during the Week 1 questline is already legendary. Alissa, you have answered and helped so many people with patience. Respect. It is great that it is possible to finalize Act 1, while the next chapter will start today. I wonder if this was possible in the past (deadlines per Act?), because otherwise it was the first questline I could finish in time since the start in 2012, because of my own mistake 🙂

  3. I find the last few Christmas specials really lacking in ideas and execution… During the Halloween specials, for example, when you bought a premium character to help earn the current special-themed currency, those characters would help through all the acts or phases. Discovering that Kathy and the Acrobat only help for 1 of 4 mini quests… what a waste of donuts! They’re not even very good premium characters.

    Further to this, I’m not a fan of this mini-quest thing. A part of the game we (the wife and I) really enjoyed is seeing who could get further ahead. Now you can’t get any further ahead then finishing 1 mini quest at a time. Not very satisfying.

    And finally, with the good quests, once you finish early you have a chance to earn donuts if you keep earning the themed currency. Clearly that isn’t happening again this year! In fact, very little seems to be happening this year (again) besides basic quests.

    I’m holding out hope once again that for Christmas we get some extra donuts like they used to do. Someone dropped the ball last year because we didn’t get anything. I wrote in about that! I’d also like to see some more inventive ideas. What happened to giving presents to your neighbors? That was always fun.

  4. My act 2 did not start. Did I miss something? I have had a lot of issues with this event that I have never experienced.

  5. I can, ‘t wait. Really happy act 2 starts today.. 🙂 💓

  6. Is it just me or should all the duplicate Homer/Bart/Lisa/Maggie characters be joined.

    What I mean is
    Young Homer should just be a character skin of Homer that you could select to do tasks. Grownup Bart can be a skin for Bart. Grown-up Lisa can be a skin for Lisa. And this new “Angel Lisa” could be a skin for Lisa rather than a weird “duplicate” Lisa.

    I really find it annoying there’s two Lisa’s

  7. Well, based on the fact that Bart narrates… and the way the characters are arranged in the Xmas 2018 box, next is gonna be gangster snowman(?) that Sprawl-mart security guard (Catfish? ‘Listen, if I wanted smoke blown up my rear end I’d be at home with a carton of cigs and a short length of hose!”) and ‘young Barney’… Where will I get the donuts?!?

  8. I just noticed that the mermaid in the “Mermaid Petting Zoo” has a scarf. I love all the little details

  9. Enjoyed the grind free act 1, can’t wait till act 2, very laid back, love it, great prizes, can’t believe those people who cant read a post properly, they maybe need a big arrow to point them in the right direction Sheesh. ↕️↘️↖️↙️↗️↩️ LOL🔙🔚🔛🔜🔝🔀🔁

  10. End of Act 1.
    Looking back on the past week…
    Pleasantly surprised. Fond memories.

    Good dialogue.
    Consistent theme.
    Fun purchases.

  11. Thank Yooooooooo Alissa!❤️

  12. Thank you for the reminder to prep for Act 2 Alissa (and thank you for jumping in to help Safi)🦌🎄

    Act 1 was fun and stress free and completed in 5 Days and I’m so grateful for the non grind / non crafting (yay Land Tokens) 😀

    Sending Characters to my Christmas Movie Theatre (keeping all of those required to initiate Act 2 available), with plenty of 🍩’s available for new Premiums (yay!) ⛄🦌🎄🎅

  13. ❄❄❄❄

    ⛄🏠 🐕🐕

    🎬🎥🐒 . See ya bye . 👽

  14. Hey guys I be finished all tasks and week 2 isn’t starting for me at all. Anyone else having this problem?

  15. Finished week 1, but the game won’t give me the stage (last decoration). Help.

  16. That’s lot of donuts. Won’t have left much to buy something else, since i assume there will be more characters in act 3 and 4

  17. I’m on part 5 today. I should finish week 1 sometime tomorrow. I can usually only log in 2-3 times a day, so I’m pretty happy with being so close to the finish.

  18. Well I hope week 2 is gonna be better than week 1 has been this is just about the most boring event they have run

  19. Honestly.. is this not the most boring event ever so far?

  20. I freaking LOVE all Act 1 prizes! So freaking jolly!!!🎄🎄🎄

  21. I’m not done with act 1! Its probably because i still don’t get notifications…

  22. Any returning items / mystery boxes?

  23. My game is locked in ACT 1 scene 5 , it wont give me the final prize so I can finish the ACT. Any one else have this issue?

  24. Thanks Alissa! Ready for act 2 😊

  25. Thanks for the post. Enjoyed act 1, having dialogue throughout the act is far better than just dialogue at the start and made it more engaging and seem less of a 4 hour chore.
