THOH XXX Week 1 Is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Bug Alert: Seeing a bunch of reports from you guys that the option to buy $19.99 worth of donuts is either missing or broken.  By broken, I mean…you can buy it and spend the money but you’re not given the donuts. If this happens to you contact EA.
What I can tell you is, it looks like there’s going to be a donut bonus offered with the $19.99 Truckload of donuts during this event.  That may explain why it’s missing or you’re having problems with it.

Note: The in-game instruction boxes and prize box says items leave November 13th.  However, the files say November 19th is when the event ends.  I think it’s some dialogue they forgot to change.  It looks like this event was originally supposed to launch last week (like we all thought) and end on the 13th.  But something happened and they pushed it back a week.  They changed the files to indicate the new end date, but forgot to change the box dialogue. (Because the store timer is still counting down 28 days…which is November 19th…)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Halloween has finally arrived in our pocket-sized Springfields!  With Kodos and Kang running the show it’s hard to know if this event will be all tricks…or treats for Tappers!

We’re back to multi-events for this one.  So love them, or hate them, they’re still here.  So let’s all try to make the best of this…(I’ll have more thoughts in my next musings post…)

Anywho….things kick off with some 6s tasks for Kodos, Kang, and Cthulhu which means…yes, if you don’t have Kodos and Kang you’ll get them at the start of this event. Also, this means, this THOH event is a continuation of the Cthulhu’s Revenge mini-event. Which is kinda cool..at least to me.

After you’ve completed these initial tasks you’ll kick off THOH XXX Week 1…


First, remember this was an app store update available for download yesterday (Tuesday 10/22).  So if you haven’t already done so, and you don’t see the Splash Screen above for your game, head to your app store and update TSTO.  You may have to search the store for Tapped Out, as it doesn’t always appear on the update list initially…

And here’s the event synopsis from EA…

Kang and Kodos are ready to get their tentacles dirty, by summoning villains and monsters from other universes to do their dirty work. They’ve tried all their own ideas, now it’s time to steal from everyone else’s.

However, their multi-verse portal tech malfunctions and anyone can pass between universes. Kang and Kodos are in over their heads and must enlist the help of unlikely allies when the Rigellian Devil comes to Springfield.


Now on with the update…

We should all know by now unless of course, you’re new to TSTO that the prizes for this event follow the same questline format to unlock as our regular mini-events do.

Just like every large event since Christmas 2018, this is not your typical Major Event.  And there are pros and cons to that, and everyone will find their own pros and cons.  And some people’s pro will be someone else’s con.

As always, I just ask that you have an open mind, and reserve judgment until we’re into the event.  It’s 4 weeks long (and remember for the past few years we’ve been complaining that events that are 6 weeks plus are just too long).  It should be fairly easy to complete.  You’ll unlock a bunch of new prizes.  No crafting to grind through.  Just have some good old fashioned TSTO fun.  And, as long as you don’t rush things, you won’t get bored because it’ll change each week!

As I stated above, the initial quests are 6s tasks for Kodos and Kang.   Once completed you’ll start the Operation Clogged Drain questline, which is the week 1 story to follow.  This is how you’ll unlock the Week 1 (Act 1) prizes.

Same Mistakes, New Plan
Auto starts

Kang: Cthulhu, you waterlogged limpet, you’ve floundered for the last time.
Cthulhu: Sorry, my desire was to destroy all life on Earth, but the humans reconnected me with my saltwater spawn.
Kang: We can’t be mad at you for being a loving parent. Give me a hug.
Kodos: That’s beautiful… and weak! You’re an embarrassment sometimes.
6s Tasks for Kodos, Kang, and Cthulhu
Kodos: I throw up my tentacles. I don’t know how to recover from this.
Cthulhu: That’s because your plan is all wet. When your toilet is clogged and you can’t fix it yourself, you call a professional.
Kang: What does destroying the world have to do with our ship’s plumbing problems?
Kodos: I get it… Earth is our ship’s toilet!
Kang: And the clog was me?
Kodos: The clog is Earth too. We need to hire a professional to destroy it!

And this triggers the entire story premise for each act…

(and yes, just like I did for the past multi-events, I’ll be posting full dialogue for this one before each week is over)

Although I mentioned this yesterday, once again here’s the synopsis for Act 1…

Kang and Kodos open a portal to alternate universes and send a call to the worst of the worst to join them. To their dismay their call is answered by the C-list of Doom, villains who’ve been defeated or that are low level threats. Just as it seems all hope for world domination is lost, Zia Simpson comes to Springfield and uses the Ultranet from the future to send a call to real monsters and villains.

Now let’s talk about what’s included…

DO NOT FORGET TO SCROLL UP AND DOWN IN THE TASK BOXES (PICTURED ABOVE) TO BE SURE TO COMPLETE ALL TASKS FOR EACH PART.  

I’ll lay out specifically what you need to do for each part in the turbo tappin’ post, but I don’t want any of you to get messed up with this.  So don’t forget to SCROLL!

Currency Act 1: McGuffin Disks

Here are the prizes for Part 1:

Scary Dock (Decoration) or 12 Donuts Operation Clogged Drain Pt. 4 and 100

Characters who can complete tasks for Act 1:

Marge
Lisa
Bart
Ned
Milhouse
Willie
Burns
Moe
Monkey’s Paw Salesman (New Premium)

Let’s try this list again….special shoutout to EA for giving us the WRONG INFORMATION IN THE FREAKING EVENT PACKET!  I don’t care if we get the packet or don’t get the packet.  But if you do it, for the love of god…make sure it’s accurate information.

Here’s the correct list, as verified in my game…

Marge
Lisa

Grampa
Maggie
Nelson
Milhouse
Monkey Paw Salesman (New Premium)

Land Tiles

Because I know I’ll be asked…as of right now I don’t see anything awarding Land Tiles.  Nor do I see the Golden Goose Realty coming back with this event.

This may be corrected with a patch during this event, but as of right now I don’t see a way of getting more land with this event.

I’m sure GGR will come back at some point, just have to wait it out a little longer.


Item Limits

Per Patric, they have not raised the item limits with this event.  That doesn’t mean they won’t, just means they’re not raised at this moment.  There have been plenty of times in the past where the limits were raised shortly after the event went live with a patch.  If they’re increased we’ll let you know.


And that’s it my friends.  The details of week one of the 2019 Halloween Update, THOH XXX!

Your thoughts on the event?  Like the multi-event format, considering it is only 4 weeks long?  Like the idea of new content each week?  Thoughts on the content?  Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!

  6. Is there any chance that this event will be any different from the past events? It is getting boring to know you just have to return every 4 hours to put people to work until u get the new items and nothing else! What happened to chasing the skeletons or zombies around ur town and then going to a friends town and putting some in theirs?
    Any hope of some imagination or new ideas from this game?
    I have played this game for around 4 years and enjoyed the game but now it is boring.

  7. Frustrated addict who is ready to find a different addiction

    I can not kick off event as I have Kodos stuck in the Simpson’s house on the Flirt with human males task so I can start the 1st 6 second task. Says it is done but when I click on the done box it refills the bar green like when it says free and then nothing. I have tried logging off, uninstalling. Nothing fixes it. I even tried to store building in inventory but since it is the simpsons house you can not put it in inventory. I am stuck. Anyone else have this happen or have other suggestions. Extremely frustrated and ready to stop playing

  8. I’m missing a bunch of the stuff listed for the magical mystery box and some of the bundles listed I have nothing at all for. I was really looking forward to getting Treestache and Wiggops 😦
    also my THOH mystery box only contains Booberella and nothing else.
    On the bright side I I got my bonus to over 5100 percent. It kinda sucks because I worked really hard for years to get to 925 percent. But I think I’ll get over it! 🙂

  13. I’ve found the perfect answer to the Bart Screen of Death.

    Firstly acquaint yourself with the music of D:Ream

    Next stand up and clear your mind, hold your device in both hands and hold it up and out so your elbows form a 90 degree angle.

    Concentrate on the screen as you lift your left leg so it forms a lower case “h” , also forming 90 degree angles.

    Now close your right eye and with your mouth almost closed stick your tongue out to around three eighths of an inch ( ten millimetres for those who want it in metric )

    Take a deep breath in, and release it slowly, counting to five as you breathe out and then repeat five more times, or more if you don’t begin to feel relaxed and at peace with the world.

    Great,.

    Now you mastered the basics, go out and find somewhere crowded and busy and repeat the steps so far.

    While you feel serene it is the time to try and tap, load up the game and get started.but be sure to continue to hold the pose

    Time for the magic, begin to hum the tune off “Things can only get better” while your mind sees the words as “Fish should always have fingers”.

    Well done.

    You probably got Barted out as soon as you tapped but you won’t forget trying and it’ll be fun the next time you hear he song, or see a Professor Brian Cox programme in your TV guide.

    Right now there are two possible personality types :
    Those who want to kill me, and those who had their chuckle muscles exercised.
    Sorry if you spat your drink out.
    Happy tapping and enjoy life.

Also i can never get Mexican Duffman because on the rare occaisions he appears he is bundled with Duffman, who i already have. I wouldn’t mind paying full price for the bundle and just getting the bits i don’t have, but to just not have the option is a tad frustrating.
