Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Yesterday, an app store update hit our games to remove the Cirque du Springfield Event (change the splash screen back to normal). And, today a brand-new mini-event started up in our towns! (as long as you’ve downloaded the update)
You’ll need Homer, Marge, Bart, and Lisa free for 6s tasks to get things started with this event. (there are 2 parts to the first “kick off” questline…and a series of 6s tasks for Homer and Marge in Part 1 and all 4 in part 2)
This mini-event ends, in 2 weeks, on April 6th.
More details below the fold…
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 The Unbearable Darkness of Being Pt. 1… Note there is a part 2 as well
Normally I’d post the dialogue here, but because there are 2 parts and A LOT of dialogue I’m going to skip it this time. Just note that:
-The Unbearable Darkness of Being Pt. 1 has 6s tasks for Homer and Marge
-The Unbearable Darkness of Being Pt. 2 has 6s tasks for Homer, Marge, Bart AND Lisa.
After you’ve completed BOTH parts 1 and 2 you’ll launch into the Hot Diggity Dog Event…
The questline to follow for the free prizes is…Release the Grease.
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…
Deuce (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 *.
Loads of returning content with this one…
I’m sure there are some I’m missing…but this is all I could see in my low-level town..if I’m missing some let me know in the comments below with the donut cost and I’ll add it. (if you could post a screenshot of it that would be helpful too)
