Game of Games Sequel Act 1 in Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Update time in Springfield!  Just when you think they’re going to skip a week, EA jumps in at the eleventh hour with an update!

Anyway…what’s in store for us this time?  Well, it’s return to last year’s Game of Games event.  The Game of Games sequel!  Loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up…

Once again we see another multi-event in Springfield.  So love them, or hate them, they’re still here.  So let’s all try to make the best of this…

Anywho….things kick off with 60s tasks for Bart, Milhouse, and Martin.  

After you’ve completed these initial tasks you’ll kick off the Game of Games Sequel…


First, remember this was an app store update available for download.  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…

We did not receive an event package from EA for this, as of this post time, so I don’t have the traditional event overview and Act Synopsis for you.  If/when we receive those I’ll update the post(s) to include them.

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 recently, 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 5 weeks long, it should be fairly easy to complete, you’ll unlock a bunch of new prizes and no crafting to grind through,  so let’s 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 60s tasks .   Once completed you’ll start the Dubstepping Up Your Game questline, which is the Act 1 story to follow.  This is how you’ll unlock the Act 1 prizes.

Note: Some of you have mentioned you are having trouble getting the event to start.  You need to download the latest update and the requirements for this are: Level 15 and you MUST have Comic Book Guy AND Nelson unlocked.  It won’t trigger without those two.

The Mysterious Gamer
Auto starts

Milhouse: Man, summer is like, in my top-five seasons. No school, spending all day indoors at the arcade watching you play Touch of Death…The only thing more fun would be if you ever let me play. But hey, we Van Houtens know our place.
Bart: Milhouse, I’m on a once-in-a-lifetime run here, and I can’t afford a single mistake. So zip it!
Milhouse: Got it. Consider my lip zipped. Won’t be hearing from me anymore!  No sir, not a peep. Because I’ve never seen you so in the zone before. You’re gonna beat your high score!
Bart: C’mon…c’mon… YES! A personal best. Now, to just add my initials to the leaderboard, so thousands of years from now, people will still marvel at my achievement. Wait a second, what’s this? There’s a new name on the leaderboard…
Milhouse: “TGM”? Who is “TGM”? Look! Escape from Grandma’s House also has “TGM” on the leaderboard!
Martin: It’s on Larry the Looter, too!
Bart: This “TGM” is still among us, I can feel it in my joystick blisters… Spread out, men!
Make the Kids Search for the Mysterious Gamer x3. 60s, Bart, Milhouse and Martin
Martin: *pointing* Who…is that?
Milhouse: Wow, look at his fingers! I’ve never seen someone with such pristine hand-eye coordination. He must file his nails. And his eyelids!
Bart: Ah c’mon, he’s not THAT good.
Martin: He set a new high score!
Milhouse:  *running over* Hey, Mister. What’s your name?
The Game Master: You may call me…The Game Master. *THUNDERCLAP*
Martin: The Game Master… “TGM”…like the prophecy of the leaderboards foretold!
Milhouse: Pretty lame handle. I would’ve gone with “The Gaminator”. Or maybe “The Extermigamer”.
The Game Master: Silence! As The Game Master, it falls on me to blow your minds by informing you that this world we live in is nothing but a mere…SIMULATION! *ANOTHER THUNDERCLAP*
Bart: Well, duh.

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)

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:  Arcade Tokens

Here are the prizes for Part 1:

Arcade Cabinets- Dubstepping Up Your Game Pt. 4 and 125

Questline, which I’ll post later, will show how each is unlocked. 

Characters who can complete tasks for Act 1:
Homer
Marge
Bart
Lisa
Grampa

Each Act will have a new premium character that will earn event currency.  From what I can see, based on the info from EA, characters will be used throughout the entire event.  So Act 1 will be used in Act 2, 3, and 4…etc.

  1. I wasn’t impressed with the event, this is the first time I purchased an event character for collecting the event currency. It was also my 1st character in years that I’ve bought outside of the yearbook, so I found it extra disappointing to always keep coming up short or having a few extra pieces of event currency; because of this Strawberry feels useless as an event character.
    I thought why give her bonus currency if it never becomes useful?
    I got Sophie from the yearbook mystery box & I was disappointed to find that she only had a single event action (by the time I got her-(wrap her ankle)) that rewarded no event currency for completion.
    I have completed this act with only a few event character’s tasks to complete(Strawberry, Milo, Sophie) until Friday, I miss the ability to continue earning rewards after completing an act.

  2. I found both Sophie and Wendell in the Yearbook. Got Sophie on first try (30 donuts) on one page, got Wendell and the building on the second try on another page (so for outlay of 60 donuts, but also got Vesuvius Pizza on the first try). Lucky, lucky me!

  3. Thank you so much for clarifying Nelson needed to be available. He’s not my favorite so I had him stored. I uninstalled and reinstalled twice, and even contacted EA but thanks to your advice I’n now in. Much appreciated!
