Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

While the Week 2 (and 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 3 starts, some of the premium items will be leaving the store.

So if you planned to purchase Young Marge, Young Barney or Don  (SIBs linked) do so before they leave our games tomorrow morning.

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Week 3 to start…

As we know Marge will be telling the story during Week 3.  Characters needed for week 3 tasks are:

There will also be two new premium characters introduced during week 2, both of those characters will be able to help with the currency earning.  (350 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase both characters)

And that’s it my friends!  Be prepared for Week 3 to start up tomorrow morning!
