Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The new mini-event is live in Springfield! Provided you’ve downloaded the app store update, that hit yesterday, the event should start up for you when you launch Springfield.
Things kick off by requiring you to build a Brown House. And then you’ll launch the mini event, with the first task requiring Homer to build a Mystery box, 4hrs. And you’ll need Springfielders to collect State Pasta.
I’ll be back in a bit with more info as I run through it…
A quick note about the start time. Totally my mistake guys I’m really sorry. I wasn’t thinking about time conversion yesterday, and saw 1400 and was like “ok that’s 10am et”. It’s not. Daylight Savings Time hasn’t started yet, in the US. It starts during this event (March 10th), so EA accounted for Daylight Savings in the start time despite it not starting yet. Which means, when this event ends 1400 UTC will be 10am ET, but when it started 1400 UTC is 9am ET. So what’s the point of this? Well a really complicated way to say I’m really sorry I screwed up the start time. And don’t forget, in the US, Daylight Savings starts on March 10th.
Note on the Amazon Zoom issues: Some players are reporting it’s fixed, others are saying it’s not. I think it depends on if you’re using Kindle or Fire and which version of each. But honestly, I’m not sure. I think if they fixed it on some, others may be following. If you can hold out a little longer…
Also, per Poklfil in the comments, Galaxy Tab S3 issues are now resolved.
This is your typical mini-event. Follow a questline to unlock the prizes, with some premium stuff thrown in.
The Mini-Event Leaves Springfield on March 12th. This is a Tuesday, so you have slightly less than 2 weeks to complete. End time is listed as 1400UTC (which by then will be 10am ET)
Here’a rundown of the prizes…
Prizes follow the State of Mine questline.
There are a couple of new premium items available in the store…well 1 new combo..

A TON of New Land was released with this mini-event! Thanks to Super Safi, who counted, there are 240 NEW tiles of land that were added today! And according to our resident math man…”It would take 4 months of twice a day every 12 hours Golden Goose to unlock all the tiles”
Collect All Feature!
Yes, my friends, you’ve been asking for YEARS for this and it’s finally a reality! There is now a Collect All Feature in Springfield! Well, you have to unlock it, but it’s available!
This Collect All Feature comes to us via the Sky Finger Monument! I’m going to write up a detailed post with the dialogue etc, but for now, know that it comes via the Get to the Point questline. This is triggered by Quimby and is separate from the prize track questline. Once completed you’ll unlock the Sky Finger Monument…
And there you have it my friends, the details on the newest mini-event to hit Springfield!
