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 the Love, Springfieldian Style Event!
Now if you remember, week 3 ended with Snake saying Willie’s story was lame and he was ready to cut cards…
Rome-Eh & Julie-Aye Outro
Willie: And that’s me tale. We loved each other, but what we loved more was competition.
Snake: I didn’t understand a word you said. And now I’m just bored.
And now, here’s the kick off dialogue you’ll see this morning (and a look at what’s in store for Act 3)…
Bart to Another Future Intro
Snake: Alright, dudes and dudettes, it’s time to slash up some Valentines Cards. Starting with… this one.
Bart: Hey, that one has my name on it! “Bart” doesn’t have an “i” in it, but if it did, I’m sure they would’ve dotted it with a heart! Look Snake, I’ll give you an action-packed story. Just leave my card alone.
This is then followed by a 4hr task for Lisa and a 4hr task for Bart…
So, Bart is in charge of the story this time around. I’m not going to share the Week 3 Synopsis just yet because the details include a spoiler for a twist in the story. So I’ll post that synopsis with the Week 3 dialogue…
Here are the prizes for Part 3:
Contraception Overlook (Decoration) unlocks upon completion of Bart to Another Future Pt 1. 100
Quantum Tunnel (Decoration) + Land Token unlocks upon completion of Bart to Another Future Pt 2. 200
Future Bundle (Building & Decoration Bundle) unlocks upon completion of Bart to Another Future Pt 3. 250
Olde Springfield Towne (Building) + Land Token 250 unlocks upon completion of Bart to Another Future Pt 4. 250
Jenda (Character) unlocks upon completion of Bart to Another Future Pt 5. 300
Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked.
Characters who can complete tasks:
Vicki (Premium Rate)
Capri Flanders (Premium Rate)
Nedward Flanders (Premium Rate)
Nikki McKenna (Premium Rate)
6/4hrs for Freemium
9/4hrs for Premium
Here’s what’s included today:
Nikki McKenna and Springfield Skate Park- 150 Donuts. Available until February 13th
Nedward and Capri Flanders are still available in the store. As well as all returning Valentine’s Day Content and the Mystery Box.
We also have a fresh batch of donuts in store for us! This time around the boatload is included. If you buy dounts the boatload is a great deal, you’re getting 4800 donuts (basically 2 boatloads) for the price of 1. The ultimate TSTO BOGO!
Here are the deals…
And that’s it my friends. The details of week 3 of the Love, Springfieldian Style Event!
Your thoughts on week 3? Prizes? Premium items? How about the story itself? Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!
Hey my acts are not starting at any cost
Any ideas on how long the donut BOGO will last? Game just shows “limited” under the tabs.
Goes when the event ends
Nikki McKenna and Springfield Skate Park
(hmmm, must look up this Character, I may get her)👍
I’m glad that the totals have been lowered since I wanted to get the last prizes on the weekend instead of a day or 2 before the next act begins. I like the new future theme though I have stored most of my sci-fi items apart from my futuristic residential area which may make the second and third prizes more difficult to place in my town. I’m curious if the second prize can go on the roads or over mountains. The others prizes look decent especially Jenda and the Olde Springfield Towne.
Had to get Nicki and the Skatepark…which of course means we had to have a real Skatepark😮…so now we do!😁
Sorry Nikki, misspelled your name 🙀
ok forgive me on this question. i just got back from dentist so little foggy. do i have to complete bart and lisa 4hr story first for act to begin cause nothing showing up for tasks otherwise. 🤪
Anyone else logged out of the game? Servers down?
Glad to have Nikki, she might be a bit frustrating, but I always considered her the 2nd best of Bart’s “loves”.
I love this game! I sometimes complain, too, even though the art and characters and able to earn “stuff” is unparalleled by any other phablet game. Our tsto hosts do such a great job of spending quality time here and helping all of us to enjoy this wonderful game even more!!!
Best Act so far in terms of prizes. I was very happy to get the observatory though.
Apologies if this comment belongs in the Donut Tips section, but seeing as the Laird Ladd donut specials are mentioned in this post I thought I’d mention it here: For you Kindle Fire users out there, Amazon has their Amazon Coins at pretty low prices today. They change the price of their packages pretty frequently, so you might want to jump on them if you plan on buying them. 10,000 coins (what’s needed for a Boatload) is only $81.00 today. Rarely do I see that many Coins go below $80 (and when I do it’s because of a Cyber Monday/Prime Day/some sort of Holiday deal), so this is about as cheap as they get. Basically, 4,800 donuts for $81.00 equates to less than 2 cents per donut. Don’t know if I’ve ever been able to get them that cheap, so jump on it while you can if you’re interested Fire Tappers!
As always, many thanks to all the Addicts running the site! Love you guys!
Thanks Matthew! I do play on a Fire tablet and I am sure hoping they fix the zoom issue once this event is over! But until then I am wondering about your post. I have never bought Amazon coins and yes, I see they are on sell. Once I buy the coins, then when I decide to buy donuts, it will give me the option to use the Amazon coins for payment? Thank you!
Uuugghh, the zoom issue! I empathize Cathy, it’s been unplayable on my Fire since the update. I’ve been using my iPhone to “collect and reset” during this event and that’s all I’ve done. I don’t really like designing on my iPhone so I’ll wait until the zoom issue is fixed to create things in my town, but to earn prizes I have to play on my phone. Hoping it gets fixed soon.
To answer your question regarding Coins: Yes, whenever you’re logged into your Amazon account, you can purchase the Amazon Coins and however many you buy will immediately be added to your Coins account. Once logged in to your TSTO game on your Fire, tap the pink “Get More” button to purchase donuts and that will bring up the screen with all options (tray/store/boatload/etc…). Once you tap the icon of the donuts you wish to purchase an option will appear directing you to select a payment, one of which will be “Use Amazon Coins”. Tap that selection and the donuts will appear in your game, and the amount of Coins spent will be deducted from your Amazon account.
For Fire users who buy donuts regularly (like myself) it really is the way to go. Amazon also has specials on some apps where spending Coins within them will earn you a rebate with more Coins (i.e. “Spend 10,000 Coins in Tapped Out and get 300 Coins credited”), which you could then use to purchase more donuts if you choose to do so. However, I have not seen Amazon offer Tapped Out as a game to earn Coins in in a number of years, which makes me think they’re done offering rebated Coins in Tapped Out. = ( In any event, keep your eyes on the prices of the Coins packages because they change rather frequently. Anything above $85 or $86 for a 10,000 Coins is too much, in my opinion. Give it a few days or weeks and they will almost always go back down to between $80 and $85 if you’re patient.
Hope this helps, happy tapping! = )
I reached out to EA. Twice. I was informed the zoom feature will not be restored. It does make it harder to defeat robots, find Maggie, travel across town etc…
How much is the total with tax for the 10,000 coins?
So these prizes take less currency to obtain than previous weeks, should be a little easier to complete for some people.
Yea seems like as it progresses they lower the required amount since time is starting to run down to finish these acts. (act 4 will be even lower requirements, but it’s also only 6 days instead of 7)
Also, don’t forget, this is the first act where the Intro quest is 4hrs instead of 6s. So you have to wait 4hrs before you can even start working on the prize track.
Or speed them up
I like the prices for this act, especially Jenda… but what I really LOVE is the skatepark!!!
Skateboarding used to be my life when I was a teenager 20 years ago and I still occasionally skate…unfortunately, the park is kind of small, but this was an instant buy for me!
Like the look of the skatepark but will wait for the sib for it.
tomorrow morning is the plan. Spoiler, i got it just because of the skate park (a lot of design ideas..that will take me forever to implement lol)
Yes I was thinking a large children’s play area with the skatepark in the middle, depends on the visual tasks and who can use it, would be great if there’s a few characters could use it.
Best prizes so far imo, rlly hyped to get all of them
When is the mistery box?
It already is in springfield…
The Mistery Box is where you wind up when you fail to listen to your sweetie.
🤣 you made me laugh so hard I almost dropped my 🍹
Meh. Just rushed it. The weakest of the stories so far. Kinda wish they had a bit more content each week but it’s been a pretty good event so far. B-
Kinda wish they had more premium characters per act and more mystery boxes
By chance do you know if the new tunnel prize can be placed in the mountain range?
I doubt it, the texture looks different and the mountain seems taller, but I rlly hope you can place roads thru it!
Thanks a lot Alissa! I’m already on board of the Act 3 train. Woo-hoo!
