Christmas 2018: Turbo Tappin’ Week 3, Paramours of Christmas Past

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Grab your Santa hats and break out the tinsel because it’s Christmas time in Springfield! Yes the annual TSTO Christmas event has arrived in our pocket-sized towns, covering our usual perfect weather towns with a fresh blanket of bright, white, snow!

While the Christmas event, and snow, are annual the structure of this event is anything but!  This is the first major event in Springfield that’s structured like a mini-event.  Christmas consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the Simpsons Christmas Special!

For Act 3 we’re tasked with following Marge’s Hallmark Christmas story…all about a young woman who travels home for Christmas to be reunited with a love from her past.  Each part of the story will unlock another prize themed for Marge’s story.  So let’s take a look at the details behind Week 3 and the Turbo Tappin’ Version for Marge’s Christmas Story…

Christmas 2018: A Simpsons Christmas Special Act 3 is Live!

IMPORTANT READ THIS BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING: Ok before I get into week 3, for the love of God READ THIS!  Guys, I’m seriously about to lose my ever-lovin’ mind! 
-IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR THE GREYHOUND SLEIGH FOR SANTA’S LITTLE HELPER’S TASK, IT’S CURRENTLY NOT IN THE GAME!  Relax, nothing is broken.  It’ll unlock before the event is over.  
So please, stop asking.  

Thank you!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast which means it’s officially time to start Act 3 (week 3) of A Simpsons Christmas Special!

Now if you remember, week 2 ended with Marge declaring it was her turn to tell a story…because everyone loves a good romance!

Christmas is Canceled Pt. 4
Auto starts

Homer: *slow clap* Wow! What a story! I never could have predicted Officer Savage was a bad guy.
Lisa: That’s my point. There was nothing prior to the big reveal to indicate, however subtly, that–
Bart: Face it, Lisa. The public loved my story. And the ignorant masses are never wrong about these things.
Marge: I don’t know, that story was a little violent for me. There were so many car chases and explosions!
Homer: The bedrock of any great story is car chases and explosions. Aristotle said that.
Marge: What about a good romance? Everyone loves love.
Homer: The trick is to find the right amount of nudity. Brief enough that it doesn’t damage the children, but long enough that I give a damn.

(Please don’t ask me about this dialogue.  This dialogue is what appears when you FINISH the week 2 questline.  It does not appear when week 3 starts.  So if you finished week 2 you already saw this, if you didn’t finish week 2 you didn’t see it yet and if you just finished week 2 seconds before week 3 hit you’ll see it…)

And now, here’s the kick off dialogue you’ll see this morning (and a look at what’s in store for Act 3)
