Update: Hibbert’s Dad will earn Act 2 currency as well! Increasing your max currency payout to 71/4hrs. I’ve updated the post below to reflect. Special thanks to Angus Lee in the comments for pointing this out to me!
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Act 2 of the Black History Event is live in Springfield!
Things kick off for Act 2 with some dialogue between Carl and Bart…
Carl: Bart, you want to do your Black History Month report on me? But why?
Bart: You’re the black person I most admire.
Bart: Totally! You’ve saved my dad’s life a million times by turning him on his side when he was passed out.
Carl: Are you sure there isn’t someone you admire more? Thurgood Marshall? Nelson Mandela? The cool bad guy from Black Panther?
Bart: Those guys are great, but I don’t want to research. So let’s do this thing already! I’m brokering a fireworks deal with Nelson in half an hour.
Carl: Eh, why not? But I can’t tell the story of my life without talking about the guy who got me here. My deadbeat dad, Carl Sr. The spelunker, excavator, and hyper-capitalist founder of the Carl’s Dad Caverns.
This triggers the Act 2 questline,Fair-Weather Father, and is followed by 4hr tasks for Carl, as well as a task to collect Act 2 Currency (350). Fair-Weather Father is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Act 2 prizes.
Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 2…
Here’s EA’s synopsis for Act 2:
Carl relates his tale of paternal neglect, and how he’s sent back to Carl’s Dad Caverns on a mission from
God to save Springfield, a quest that lands him on Opal’s talk show facing the wrath of a jealous Ned
As I stated above, you’ll basically go right into the Fair-Weather Father questline, which is what the Act 2 story will follow. This questline is how you’ll unlock the Act 2 prizes.
The currency we’re working on collecting for Act 2….
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 2:
Fair-Weather Father Pt. 1 and 350 (
Carl’s Dad Caverns (If you don’t already have it) & Carl Animated Job) Update: My notes from EA indicate that you get Carl’s Dad Caverns with this…but from what I’m seeing from y’all you don’t. So I’m going to chalk this up to an EA error. My apologies.
Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked.
Characters who can complete tasks for Act 2:
Hibbert’s Dad (New Premium)
Stogie (New Premium)
It will take you the ENTIRE time between Act 2 and Act 3 (Act 3 starts on the 23rd…9 days from now) clearing 4 times/day to complete. It is possible to do it Freemium. You just have to log in 4 times/day starting today…and you’ll likely complete the track just before Act 3 starts on the 23rd.
If you log in more frequently than 4 times/day you’ll finish quicker, and if you buy the Act 2 premium character you’ll finish quicker. But don’t think you’ll finish with days to spare like the other events (unless you spend donuts to rush tasks), because you won’t. This event is designed to move slow. This seems to be EA’s response for those who complained the other events were too easy and they finished too early…
Personally, I think EA was missing the point about too easy…BRING BACK PUZZLES LIKE FROM STONECUTTERS!….but at least you know they’re listening. They’re hearing it wrong, but they’re listening…
Act 1 Prizes
These are STILL unlockable if you haven’t completed that prize track. You have until the event ends to unlock ALL the prizes. So keep going with Act 1 if you haven’t yet finished it.
Here’s what’s included today:
Stogie and Hard Lad Nightclub- 150 Donuts. According to my info sheet from EA it leaves the 23rd, according to the files it leaves March 12th (when the event ends). I’m inclined to believe the files…because that’s what’s coding the game.
All other returning content, that arrived during Act 1 remains until the event ends.
And that’s it my friends. The details of Act two of the Black History event.
Your thoughts on the Act 2 content? Did you finish Act 1 or are you still working on it? Premium content you’ll be buying? Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!
