Christmas 2018 Prize Guide: Act 3, Prize 4 The Ghost of Christmas Past

Ho Ho Ho Holiday Tappers!

Bust out the tinsel and be sure to hang those stockings by the chimney with care because Christmas time is in the air! That’s right my friends, Christmas (and snow, lots and lots of snow) has hit our pocket-sized towns!

This year EA is trying something different, as I’ve laid out in this post, in that Christmas 2018 consists of multi-events.  Basically, the Simpson family will host four stories to be told over the course of December with a new story releasing each week.  As we’re taken through each story a series of prizes are released to correspond with the theme of the story.  For Week 3, Act 3, we’re following a Heartwarming Love story as told by Marge, and the prizes we unlock all fit into the Christmas Love Story theme.

So let’s take a look at the fourth prize this week, The Ghost of Christmas Past.  A new full character for Springfield…


The Ghost of Christmas Past is a FULL Character for Springfield, and is part of the A Simpsons Christmas Special Character Collection:

How You Unlock it:

Paramours of Christmas Past Pt. 4
Make Marge Hate Christmas- 4hrs
Make Smither’s Show Marge to her Room- 4hrs
Collect Stockings- x300.  4hrs.

Once achieved you’ll unlock The Ghost of Christmas Past:

More Info:

The Ghost of Christmas Past does come with a full questline, here’s a look at that questline:

NOTE: His questline will not unlock until you’ve completed the Act 3 questline (ie unlock all of the Act 3 prizes).  After that, you’ll see his questline popup.  It’s also through his questline that you’ll unlock all of his tasks. So a little patience is required 🙂

  7. I’m on track with Patric’s schedule, so today I should be getting the flaming Xmas trees. It might be Sunday before I get the Ghost of Christmas Past… and that is if the power doesn’t go out again :/ Can’t wait to see him rockin’ that hair around my Springfield though 🙂
