In-Game Update Live: Northward Bound

Greetings from Canada,

(This post is sponsored by “We The North!”)


Yesterday, an app store update hit our games to install the new mini-event.  And, today a brand-new mini-event started up in our towns! (as long as you’ve downloaded the update)

You’ll need Homer and Lisa free for 6s tasks to get things started with this event.

This mini-event ends, in 2 weeks, on December 1st. 

More details below the fold…

So the same basic concept for mini-events, in general, applies to this one to start.  Follow a questline, do the tasks, and unlock the prizes associated with it.

The premise of the event starts when you log into Springfield. The initial dialogue is followed by a 6s task for Homer and Lisa and after that you’ll roll right into the main questline….

The questline to follow for the free prizes is…A Fail of Two Cities.

Prizes are as follows…

Connie Appleseed (Character) – A Fail of Two Cities Pt. 1

Pone, Pelts, and Beyond (Building) – A Fail of Two Cities Pt. 2

Frontier Wagon (Decoration) – A Fail of Two Cities Pt. 3

Frontier Camp (Decoration) – A Fail of Two Cities Pt. 4

Frontier Town (Building) – A Fail of Two Cities Pt. 5

Always nice to see a prize track full of new prizes (and a new character!)…and not returning items.

Characters who are used to earn event currency:
o Homer
o Bart
o Lisa
o Marge
o Grampa
o Wiggum
o Moe
o Quimby
o Cookie (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 premium combo is Cookie and Lazy I Ranch for 150 .


Black Friday
Similar to last year, a prize track full of Gold Mystery Box tokens and prizes is available and progresses with the purchase of donuts from the store. A total of 900 donuts purchased is needed to complete the prize track. I’ll have more on that later.

New Land Expansion
After the event prize track is completed, players will have access to a new land expansion, accessible through Springfield Heights. In order to unlock this land, players will need to unlock the available land from Springfield Heights that leads to the bridge, and complete a quest to repair the bridge across the canyon. Once repaired, the player has access to the new land area and the first land tile on the other side of the bridge is unlocked by default. I’ll have more on that later too.

For those struggling to unlock existing Springfield Heights land, there is a Springfield Heights Booster Pack for 150  that provides 250 each of all 7 Heights currency.


But for now, I got to get back to work. That’s the best I can do – the basic details on the sixth mini-event of 2021…Northward Bound! Welcome to the North!
