Full disclosure…it’s Christmas. (Merry Christmas!) I’m not here. I’ve prewritten this post and scheduled it in advance to go live when Act 3 hits. So all of the information in this post is based off of the information EA has provided us in our event packets. I have not verified in-game. So if something is incorrect, I apologize and i’ll fix it tomorrow…maybe. If not tomorrow, then Friday. Today, I’m spending the day with my family…as you should be too! 🙂
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Week 3 of Abe’s in Toyland is live in Springfield!
Things kick off for week 3 with some more dialogue between Grampa and Death…
Death: Look, you need to hurry up these stories. You’re supposed to be chewing coffin dirt by dawn.
Grampa: Don’t get your ghoul underpants in a ghost knot, I’m getting there. World War Two was over. I had an honorable discharge from the Army, and a dishonorable discharge from a skin condition I picked up in Paris. The economy was booming, and every veteran was dating a nurse he’d kissed on V-J day. And yet America was threatened by internal Communist subversives from the USSR. We were headed towards a Christmas nightmare!
This triggers the week 3 questline, Abe the Toy Solider, and is followed by 4hr task for Grampa, as well as a task to collect Week 3 Currency (50). Abe the Toy Solider is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Week 3 prizes.
Let’s take a look at what else is in store during week 3…
Here’s EA’s synopsis for Act 3/Week 3:
Death starts to get annoyed at Abe’s long stories, but Abe starts to tell the story about the FBI and the Communists. Philip Hefflin from Whiz Bang Toys wants to make Abe the model for his line of toy army men and offers to pay him a penny for every thousand toys sold. Abe agrees, and models for the toys. He then meets an FBI agent working for J. Edgar Hoover, who informs Abe they plan to use the toys to root out communist infiltrators. Each of the toys has a tiny radio transmitter in it so the government can spy on them. Abe lets this slip to his girlfriend at the time (who was spying on him for the CIA). The CIA confiscate all the old army men toys and melt them down. Whiz Bang Toys made new toy army men in someone else’s likeness.
As I stated above, you’ll basically go right into the Abe the Toy Solider questline, which is what the week 3 story will follow. This questline is how you’ll unlock the Week 3 (Act 3) prizes.
The currency we’re working on collecting for Week 3/Act 3….
REMINDER: 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!
Here are the prizes for Part 3:
Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked.
