Greetings from Canada,
(This post is sponsored by “We The North!”)
Last week, a brand-new mini-event started up in our towns! (as long as you’ve downloaded the update)
And with it came a whole new giant area of land in Springfield Heights. But how do you obtain the land?
More details below the fold…
Disclaimer: I have an all day meeting today from 9am to 4pm Eastern and then a cross country flight from 6pm to 11pm Eastern tonight. So I’m just providing the basic details to get started on prospecting land in this post. Also, my flight doesn’t have wifi, so comments this evening will be approved after I land after 8pm Pacific tonight.
After you complete the main mini-event prize track, you will be able to unlock the new land. It starts with a two part Brave New World questline that can utilize Homer, Moe, Chief Wiggum, Connie Appleseed, and Cookie (new premium).
Once you complete this, the bridge is complete and you have access to the Prospector’s Shack.
1) First you have to collect Prospector’s Maps. You get 1 Prospector Map from the Prospector’s Shack every 8 hours. Those who paid real money for 900 donuts and got Jackpot Realty as part of the Black Friday Prize Track will earn an additional 5 Prospector Maps every day. Everyone is given 10 Prospector Maps to start with.
2) Once you have 3 Prospector Maps, you can send one of five characters (Homer, Moe, Chief Wiggum, Connie Appleseed, or new premium Cookie) to ‘Prospect the New Frontier for an 8 hour task to earn a Land Deed.
3) You can use these Land Deeds to purchase new land tiles. If you decide to collect the Land Deeds, you can store up to 50 Land Deeds. Once you have 50 Land Deeds, you have to start using them before you can earn more.
I’ll have more on mining and buffalo’s later.
I know the post is not as detailed as Alissa’s, but I actually will be traveling across the country today on a flight that doesn’t have wifi, so will not be able to approve comments as quickly as usual. That’s the best I can do – the basic details on the new land you can prospect in (and after) Northward Bound! Welcome to the North!
Thoughts on the Northward Bound event? Thoughts on the new land? Did you complete the main mini-event prize track? Did you repair the bridge? Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!
