  1. I rushed through this event so that I could take a short break from the game I only log in once a day now to do the daily challenge.

  2. Is anyone else having trouble finishing this event? On Pt. 5, I sent ALL of my characters on the “Celebrate Being Alive” task, and they have all finished. The thing is that when I try to release them from their task, I collect all the XP and money, but they ALL remain in the Town Hall. When I restart my game, I get to collect the XP and money again, but they are still stuck. I have now collected 60 donuts as a result; but it is quite annoying.

  3. The Withstandinator – doesn’t take up Real Estate, offers up permanent Character Task, animated when in use (I’m not buying more for 🍩’s, EA!) 👍🏻

    Springfield Sculpture Garden – this was too large and it doesn’t do anything (Stored away!) 🤷🏼‍♂️

    Homer’s Bomb Shelter – it made me laugh (so small), but Stored away (c’mon EA, there needs to be a permanent Character Task with it!) 🤔

    Missile Bunker – reminds me of our “parachutist falls through trapdoor” (wow that was years ago!), this doesn’t take up Real Estate (no, EA, I’m not spending 🍩’s for more!) 😅

    The Premium Character Combo was the Top Prize (for me!), along with Prize 1 and 2 (Character and Building), but the rest of the Content was ‘meh’ (at least this wasn’t 5 weeks of ‘meh’ – lol!) 🤷🏼‍♂️

    To be fair, I’ve got to see if EA even tries this year before I can offer a “yes this was fun” vs “no this was dumb” verdict! 🤔

  4. I really liked this little event overall. It has been a nice distraction from the cold weather outside. I really enjoyed the story to, found homer really funny in it, an the general being voiced an having great animations is a great bonus I’m still surprised by.

    I also enjoy the new bomb missile decoration to, my lil nice taps on it an says launch thr missile in the cutest voice, she’s only 2.

    Can’t wait to see whats next for us tappers.

    Have a great day.
