Not Yet Spring Cleaning Prize Breakdown: Buildings

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

2019 is in full swing and we’re in the midst of our first new update of the year!  The Not Yet Spring Cleaning mini-event brings a new prize track to Springfield, one full of buildings and a new character!  For ease I thought I’d break the prizes down into two posts, one for the buildings and one just for Alice Glick and her animated task.

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the Mystery of the Brown House questline, you’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

So let’s take a look at the building prizes, prizes 1, 2 and 4 for those keeping track…

  1. At first, I thought that none of the prize buildings would have any tasks with them but I was surprised that they all have tasks with them though Springfield University is a bit underused since it only has a task for Marge. I like that EA gave Alice Glick some tasks at her house and one at the Original Brown House. I’m planning on placing Ms. Glick’s House and the Original Brown House in my residential area which I finished just before the Christmas event started. I’m thinking of placing Springfield U with the prep school since they have a similar design to each other and adding some Maple and Willow trees with them both.

  2. Am I crazy but shouldn’t this mini event have been saved for a precursor to Halloween? Haunted house that devours kids souls to keep nana alive forever?

  3. I keep getting 99 totals before I get the next prize meaning I only need 1 more candy. I have to wait 4 hours for that one or use 2 donuts… I’m slow too. Only at the second prize.

  4. Free character always makes me happy 😊

  5. Good amount of swag for this event

  6. I didn’t get the fifth prize even if I completed everything. Anyone else had the same problem?

    • The fifth prize is not an item but it unlocks a visual 8 hour task for Alice Glick “Have a Knitting Circle”. You should have a questline for Alice Glick start after you got the fifth prize and you should’ve seen a screen pop up similar to the one that appeared at the start of the main event’s questline.

  7. Thanks a lot Alissa! I liked the building as much as I liked this event (i.e. 5/5)

  8. Finished the event this afternoon, along with lvls 57-59. Finished lvl 60 months ago because it popped up somewhere around lvl 20. I have finished all the levels now, thanks to the Addicts level guides (in times when levels would get stuck midway through). Woohoo!

  9. Alice Glick’s House – will her car ever leave the car port? (lol – I actually liked the design of this house) 👍

    Springfield University – where my college nerds at? (seriously, got to have permanent Tasks here for all of the ‘smart kids’)👍

    Original Brown House – OMG! It’s Baba Yaga! (ok, some will say it’s the ‘Monster House’ from said CGI Movie)👍

    I ♥️ these Buildings! EA did awesome for this Mini Event!😀

  10. LOVE this event! I’ve finished it already but absolutely A1 in my opinion. Love the buildings and the Golden Goose 😍 Thank you EA. Totally awesome.

  11. Did anyone get their Xmas tree farm back??

  12. I loved this event! The prizes were great and so was the story! Now to “patiently” KEM farm until next Wednesday.

  13. What level do you need to be to start the questline? Hoping I can start it before it leaves lol
