Christmas 2018: A Simpsons Christmas Special Act 4 is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy day after Christmas!  I hope you all had a great Christmas and Santa was good to you 🙂

So, it’s officially 10am here on the East Coast which means it’s officially time to start the final week…Act 4 (week 4) of A Simpsons Christmas Special!

Now if you remember, week 3 ended with Marge daring someone else to step up and tell a story…

Christmas is Canceled Pt. 6
Auto starts

Marge: Well, what did you all think of my story?
Bart: *wakes up with a start* Is it over? Thank the Lord.
Homer: *also waking* Bart! Show some respect for your mother’s riveting tale! Great story, Marge. Very suspenseful.
Maggie: *also waking* *sucking noises*
Marge: Did anyone NOT sleep through it? Lisa?
Lisa: *snoring*
Marge: All right, fine. Who thinks they can do better? Huh? Huh?

(Please don’t ask me about this dialogue.  This dialogue is what appears when you FINISH the week 3 questline.  It does not appear when week 4 starts.  So if you finished week 3 you already saw this, if you didn’t finish week 3 you didn’t see it yet and if you just finished week 3 seconds before week 4 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 4)

Christmas is Canceled Pt. 7
Auto starts

Homer: Everybody ready for MY story now? Then buckle up, ‘cause we are “go” for story, in three…two…one……What am I doing? I clean forgot — in order to make up stories, you need an imagination. I killed mine at the age of eighteen. A thousand beers and — BOOM! That sucker was dead and buried. Rest in peace, my creativity!
Maggie: *suck suck* *begins to draw a picture*
Lisa: Look! Maggie’s drawing something, I think SHE wants to tell a story!
Homer: It looks like her block train!
Marge: Ooh! That’s how we’ll do this: Maggie, YOU make up the story and your father will translate!

So, Maggie and Homer are in charge of the story this time around…here’s the synopsis from EA on Week 4…

Homer announces that it’s his turn to tell a story, but quickly realizes that years of TV and beer have entirely killed his imagination. Maggie begins to draw a picture, and the family realizes it’s her way of telling a story, so Homer helps her by telling a story using her drawings as inspiration.

Maggie tells a story about a baby who is invited along with her mother, Marge, to visit Santa Claus at the North Pole. They take a magic train, driven by Otto, to the North Pole, and there learn from elves, Bart and Lisa, that all of the Christmas presents and sleigh were stolen by the evil Baby Gerald. Moreover, Santa, played by Homer, in his shame has gotten drunk on eggnog and wandered off into a snowbank. Marge and Maggie search for Santa, and upon finding him he flirts with Marge and then his wife Mrs. Claus appears to drag him home. The elves advise that Christmas should be delayed, but Marge and Maggie decide to save Christmas and they search for the missing presents and sleigh. They discover Baby Gerald at a fortress he’s built out of misbegotten toys, and he and Maggie have a showdown for the presents. Maggie is victorious, and she and Marge fly Santa’s greyhound sleigh back to the North Pole. Santa tells Marge that his wife has left him and asks her to stay in Mrs. Claus’ place.

Maggie punches Homer out of frustration that he ruined the end of her story by making it mushy. The TV then begins to work, and the Simpsons family is overjoyed that they can finally stop telling stories. However, Grampa Simpson appears and unplugs the TV, announcing that surely they didn’t think they could get away with telling stories without him. The Simpsons attempt to flee Grampa’s story by going to bed early, but he pursues them up the stairs, boring them with his nonsensical Christmas tale.

  1. Has anyone bought the personalized talking astrolabe? Does it just have a couple built in phrases (if any)? Or is it linked to your actual ipad (or whatever) clock, like the digital Big Ben? It would be great if this item received update phrases every time the game was updated!!!

  2. I’m loving this event. Much less stress because I don’t have to craft anything. I also like that the previous mini event overlaps the new one. So, if I’m a day behind, I can still play both mini events and work towards all prizes. I hope they do this again.

  3. Has anyone else’s quests been getting stuck? Chapter one messed up and still shows as having the final part completed but not giving the final building, and chapter 3 got stuck as well. Because of this I missed the character from Marge’s story, and EA has been super slow in responding.

  5. Act 4

    ♥️ the fact Event Currency is gingerbread men

    Lol that EA thinks I’m going to spend sprinkles on something like Mini Golf Castle and Lee Carvallo, when I’ve already had Sir Putt-A-Lot for how many years now? (yep, Patric is right regarding the LazyAss redundancy that doesn’t connect storywise) 😂

    Mystery Boxes are awesome for this Event (I got the Pope Francis for 60 🍩’s – yes!), I don’t think there are any returning – or new Premiums – of interest (I’ve already spent sprinkles on what I wanted) . I do look forward to getting Mrs Claus and the Greyhound Sleigh! 😀👍

    Thanks EA for a stress free / grind free Event over Christmas (minor “mehs”, overall this has been fun and I agree best character dialogue ever).
    🦌⛄❄️🎄🎅♥️
