Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
First of all, thank you Safi for getting a basic event rundown post up for me! Really appreciate the help! Guys, like I said yesterday…work is CRAZY for me right now. Trying to balance it all has been….interesting. So grateful to have Safi back me up!
Anywho, who had mini-event release on Friday for the win? It is 2020. The year where nothing seems to make sense. And it’s peek 2020 that EA would release a mini-event on a Friday afternoon. Especially one that, according to the game files, was supposed to be released on Wednesday. That’s 2020 for you…
So to get started on this mini-event you’ll need to download the update in the app store. This update will remove the Game of Games 2 Splash Screen from your game, and bring in the Summer Games 2020 files.
Basement, eh… 🤔
Once you’ve downloaded the newest update you should see the dialogue launch right up for this mini-event. (Quimby kicks off the dialogue)
Note: You will need to be, at least, on Level 15 for this to start.
What’s included with this event? Let’s take a look….
Note: You’ll need Mayor Quimby free for an hour to kick this off
Summer Games 2020 Mini-Event Ends August 5th
Some of you may note that the 2020 Summer Olympics has been postponed, maybe, until next year. So this may seem a little out of touch given the current times. However, based on the dialogue, I think this is an event that EA had planned to do prior to the world ending and then altered the dialogue to make it work with the current state of things. So it makes sense, given the dialogue. So, read it! Because it’s funny!
Things kick-off for this event with some dialogue about sports…
Quimby: Aw, I’m missing my favorite summer activities: the rallies, the ribbon cuttings, the close distance affairs…
Miss Springfield: At least we have summer sports to look forward to.
Kent Brockman: And this just in, the 2020 International Summer Games have been canceled due to health concerns. In other news, I will continue to broadcast from my closet for the foreseeable future.
Quimby: If I offer Springfield to host the Summer Games, my popularity will skyrocket!
Miss Springfield: The Summer Games, here?! But Springfield’s a dump!
Quimby: A dump with four taxpayer-funded NFL stadiums.
This is followed by a 1hr task for Mayor Quimby
After you complete the task, the event will kick off…
Remember, this is a mini-event. So it’ll run for about 2 weeks (ends August 5th)…because it started 2 days later than it we supposed to, it’s just shy of 2 weeks long. Still plenty of time!
Now onto the content…
We’ll start with the prizes:
Here’s a list of who earns the Event Currency…

And that’s all the details for the Summer Games 2020 mini-event HOWEVER, that’s not all that’s included with this event! EA says the Summer Games 2020 mini-event is the 200th update to TSTO! (although the Addicts Count has it at 196, so either we’re missing 4 updates or they’re counting 4 Gil Deal Updates in their count. Even though there are WAY more than 4 Gil updates… 🤷♀️)
To Celebrate the 200th Update, EA is giving away STUFF!
The Truck Truck Truck is huge huge huge! 5×24…wowser!
It’s animated when tapped.
But that’s not all!
EA’s also giving always somewhere to put the Truck Truck Truck…
The Parking Lot Lot Lot is also Huge Huge Huge! But it would have to be to hold the Truck Truck Truck. The Lot Lot Lot is 13×29, yipes!
And the Lot Lot Lot doesn’t do anything when tapped, however the Truck Truck Truck can be placed directly on it. So that’s a bonus.
And EA’s still not done with the 200th Update Giveaway. If you’re still not satisfied with the Truck Truck Truck and the Lot Lot Lot, EA’s giving you Donuts Donuts Donuts! 30 to be exact.
And now they’re done celebrating the 200th update!
And now I’m done with this post!
So here’s the deal. It’s Friday, just after 4pm. Don’t expect any more mini-event coverage from me until Monday. Monday I’ll have a Turbo Tappin’ up, in addition to Safi’s Musings. But tomorrow will be week 3 of Safi’s Bracket Battle…and of course Sunday’s the Open Thread. So this kind of covers everything you’ll need to get you through the weekend with this event.
