Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
The latest mini-event in our pocket-sized towns, New Year New You, is now live! Make sure you’ve downloaded the latest update from the app store to see it. This update will turn the splash screen back to normal Homer running…so if you still see the Christmas splash screen, you haven’t updated.
Also, the snow hasn’t left Springfield. This has happened a few times in the past, in 2013 the snow stuck around until Valentine’s Day and it was still around for Homer the Heretic in 2017. So it’s not the first time…
You’ll need Homer free to kick things off, followed by 4hr task for Homer and currency earning tasks for Marge, Lisa, Bart, Wiggum, Quimby, Moe, Lenny, and the new premium character. Also, Homer will have a currency earning task…
Details below the fold…
Oh, and, can I just add…there should be a comma between New Year and New You. It should be New Year, New You. For some reason, EA’s decided to forgo the comma….
Here’s the quick rundown of New Year New You details:
First thing first…this event, and everything with it leaves games in two weeks…February 3rd. Standard mini-event
So you’ll have to finish the prize track questline and purchase any premium items BEFORE February 3rd. Don’t let the timer run out on you!
Onto the mini-event itself…
So this mini-event is titled New Year New You. And the same basic concept applies. Follow a questline, do the tasks, and unlock the prizes associated with it.
The premise of the event starts when you log into Springfield, with The Post-Holiday Expansion…
Homer: The Holy Trinity of Leftovers: Christmas dinner mixed with Thanksgiving scraps and topped with all the worst Halloween candy!
Bart: Oh man, another round of Christmas ham with Jolly Ranchers on top and you’ll be muumuu-level fat!
Homer: Oooh, muumuu-level! Last time I wore one of those, I got to work from home!
Bart: So? Isn’t the whole world already working from home?
Homer: Nope, we have to keep going into the plant. Mr. Burns convinced the Mayor that the radiation protects us. *takes bite of leftovers*
Marge: Homer, stop eating that tri-holiday heart attack!
Homer: But if I get fat enough, I could start the New Year with courtside seats next to the leftover dispenser. *looks at fridge*
Marge: You have to start losing weight. Don’t you want to be around to see the kids grow up?
Homer: Not really.
Marge: Well, how about this: if you lose ten pounds, I’ll put my special Santa outfit on for you.
Homer: *intrigued noise*
Lisa: Mom! Gross!
This dialogue is followed by a 6s task for Homer and after that you’ll roll right into the main questline….
The questline to follow for the free prizes is…Survival of the Wellest.
Prizes are as follows…
Always nice to see a prize track full of new prizes (and a new character!)…and not returning items.
The turbo tappin’ post, which I’ll have up later, will show how you unlock each of these prizes. But the basic gist is…follow the questline, unlock the prizes. You guys should be pros at it by now! 🙂
The store is then full of new/returning items specifically for this event.
I’m only including stuff that has reappeared in the stores, not items that are always there (like Lard Lad Donuts) that have just been moved to the New Year New You tab…
*denotes available in the Yearbook Mystery Box
Muscular Milhouse is also back for cash purchase with donuts from the store…
And that’s it my friends, the details on the very first mini-event of the New Year!
