Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Let the games begin! After a long hiatus, we finally have a major event in Springfield! Game of Games has arrived and it looks to be a game fest of nerdy proportions!
The Game of Games event follows the same event structure that the Simpsons Christmas Special and Love, Springfieldian Style events followed. This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!
For Week 1, Act 1, we’re following Bart and Lisa’s quest for E4 passes. All of the prizes unlocked during week 1 play a role in that storyline.
So let’s take a look at the fifth, and final, prize this week, The Detonator…
The Detonator is a FULL Character for Springfield, and is part of the Game of Games Character Collection:
How You Unlock it:
E4 No Access Pass Pt. 5
Make Bart Hide from Security- 4hrs
Make Lisa Hide from Security- 4hrs
Collect VIP Passes- x400.
Once achieved you’ll unlock The Detonator:
WDTCF: “E My Sports” S30, E17
The Detonator does come with a full, albeit short, questline, here’s a look at that questline:
What Makes the Gamer Pt. 1
The Detonator starts
The Detonator: Welcome to American Tile. How can I help you?
Krusty: I’m looking to redecorate my restaurant. What’s the cheapest tile that you have?
The Detonator: We have many poor-quality options. How cheap are we talking?
Krusty: Do you have any made out of dirt? Like really low-end dirt.

Make Krusty Buy Cheap Tile- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
What Makes the Gamer Pt. 2
Bart: This is just pathetic. You used to be cool, now you’re pushing linoleum.
The Detonator: Being cool is not a career, man. Unless you’re Anderson Cooper.
Bart: You gotta get back in the video game game. Play in the small tournament at Android’s Dungeon to get your edge back.
TheDetonator: I guess anything is better than selling Krusty tiles made out of dust bunnies.
