Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Yesterday, an app store update hit our games to remove the Springfield Enlightened Event. And, today a brand-new mini-event started up in our towns! (as long as you’ve downloaded the update) I will admit, this caught me completely off guard. I was expecting a week off…and honestly looking forward to one…but EA (as usual) had other plans in store for us!
As a little inside TSTO baseball: I will say, thinking about it, this does totally make sense to start up now. You’ve got this 2-week mini-event, which ends July 28th, then a week off and a 5-week major event likely to start on August 4th. That will likely run until Sept. 8th…and that’ll give you a week off, followed by a two-week mini-event, and another week off followed by Halloween starting around October 6th. Of course, this is just my suspicion…and it lines up well for this…but we’ll see what EA actually does.
Anyway…running through the game files now, I’ll be back in a bit with more info on this post once I have it. For now know that you’ll need Homer and Moe free to run 6s tasks, which will trigger the prize track and new items in your store. At that point you’ll need the Barflies free to do the mini-event currency earning tasks.
Details below the fold…
Before we get into anything else…THE GOLDEN GOOSE REALTY IS BACK! If you have it in your store BUY IT! Spend the 150 donuts on the GGR vs the Premium character combo with this event. BUY IT! DO IT RIGHT NOW! I don’t care what else you’re doing. If you don’t own the Golden Goose Realty, drop everything you’re doing (if you’re at work go to the bathroom) and go into your TSTO AND BUY THE DAMN BUILDING! This building is how you get land tokens! SO BUY IT!
Here’s the quick rundown of Tavern Trouble details:
First thing first…this event, and everything with it leaves games in two weeks…July 28th. It’s your standard mini-event, leaving just in time for August (which is when we’ll likely see the next major event…see above)
So you’ll have to finish the prize track questline and purchase any premium items BEFORE July 28th. Don’t let the timer run out on you!
Onto the mini-event itself…
So the same basic concept for mini-events, in general, applies to this one. 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 Men of Brew Words…
Harv Bannister: Ah, Moe’s Tavern…the best drink of all time was invented right here!
Moe: The sign says “NO UNPROMPTED DECLARATIONS WHEN ENTERING” — so get lost, weirdo!
Homer: *entering Moe’s Tavern* I’m never going to Alaska again! Baseball’s a second-tier sport! Funnel cake should be sold everywhere, not just amusement parks!
Moe: Hi there, Homer! I’ll get you your usual.
Harv Bannister: Homer Simpson and Moe Szyslak — just the two people I came all this way to see!
Homer: Moe, who is this jerk?
Harv Bannister: Harv Bannister. Tipsy McStagger’s Good Time Drinking and Eating Emporium.
Homer: Wait, I know this jerk! You’re that news anchor who fell face-first into that alligator! I thought you died!
Harv Bannister: That wasn’t me. And yes, he did die.
Moe: Hmm, you do look vaguely familiar though… You a loan shark from Kansas City? Because I’ve never been there before. Never.
Harv Bannister: I’m the guy who tried to buy the secret recipe to the Flaming Moe off of you.
Homer: The drink that I invented, then Moe stole and renamed after himself?!
Moe: I didn’t steal nothing! I created the Flaming Moe!
Homer: It’s called the Flaming Homer and Homer invented it — and Homer is me!
Harv Bannister: Look, I’m on the hunt to introduce the next Flaming Moe…
Homer: Flaming Homer!
Harv Bannister: …and I thought I could put your genius inventing heads together to create the next drinking sensation!
Moe: What’s in it for us?
Harv Bannister: A substantial cash prize of course!
Homer: Woo-hoo! A vague amount of money!
Moe: I could pay that Kansas City loan shark back!
This dialogue is followed by a 6s task for Homer and Moe and after that you’ll roll right into the main questline….
The questline to follow for the free prizes is…The Long Way Homer.
Prizes are as follows…
Always nice to see a prize track full of new prizes (and a new character!)…and not returning items.
Characters who earn currency…
Harv Bannister (New Premium)
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 not going to do a new SIB post for returning content. As I’ve been doing lately, I’ve linked their previous posts here either under Details (if it was a free prize originally) or Should I Buy (if it was premium originally). I’ve also marked which items are available in the Yearbook Mystery Box, as always, with a *.
