THOH XXX Prize Guide: Act 3, Prize 5 Martin of the Opera

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Despite the calendar showing November, it’s still Halloween in Springfield! And it’ll be that way for a few more weeks…and we shouldn’t be surprised after all EA warned us!

“Isn’t it sad when Halloween ends and all you have to show for it is a bucket of candy? Well, fear not!  The new Treehouse of Horrors update for Tapped Out starts this Wednesday and will scare you deep into November!”

I’m no longer sacred…just counting down the days till tinsel time. 🎄🎄🎄

Anyway…back to the prizes at hand…

THOH XXX follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it.  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 3, we’re following what happens when Zia betrays Kodos and Kang, and plots her own world take over!  All of the prizes unlocked during week 3 play a role in that storyline.

So let’s take a look at prize 5, Martin of the Opera…an all-new character for our pocket-sized towns…

  1. Martin of the Opera is an ok character wit his visual tasks being better than his indoor tasks. I like his 12 hour task more than his 24 hour one since he moves around and does more than one thing. I was thinking of putting the piano in my Halloween town maybe near the cathedral since he can be the church organ player. I said it on the Mrs. Prince post nearly 6 months ago but a prince family update would be great in the game which can include Mr. Prince, Martin’s playhouse, Martin’s grandma and the Prince House.

  2. Wasn’t sure if the Pipe Organ would find a home, but it goes ok next to the Carousel…for now. Just hit the item limit again, so it may not stay…will have to delete some stuff just to play the next act. Boo item limits! ☹️

  3. Christmas is the last chance I give this game. It is getting worse year to year; as the show itself.
    The Simpsons were great until season 7. It has been downhill ever since. The show has been reduced to SJW nonsense. Disney has also followed suit and managed to destroy iconic franchises. Sad.
    I am okay with social commentary, but this is nuts.
    Once artists politicize their art, they cease to be artists and become propagandists.

  4. Is there an act 4? The purchase screen says prizes available until Nov 13.

    • I’ve written about this a few times…it looks like the update was supposed to hit a week earlier, and end a week earlier, but something happened and they changed the dates. Dates were changed in the files, but they forgot to update the box dialogue in the game. Timers all count down to next week.

  5. Martin of the Opera – thank you EA , at least you did 1 thing right (for Act 3 / Week 3) 😉

    Umm Event Prizes carry along Event plot (suuuurre, 12 🍩’s doesn’t apply here, right?) 😅

    It’s kinda THOH, it’s kinda not! I’ve learned, zero expectations from EA (I don’t expect Xmas will be any better – Event Prizes or Ambience – we’ll be lucky to have snow in the Game App!) 🙃

    I’m thankful for Martin of the Opera, it’s the only non Premium worth it so far (until I know if tomorrow offers something just as rewarding). 👽

      Those 12 hour / 24 hour visual Tasks are a blessing (for what’s turned into a “meh” Event no thanks to “have some 🍩’s vs new content” 60% so far in this Event) 🙃
