App Store Update: Tragic Magic

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

There’s a new update ready to download in our App Stores….this will bring in the newest mini-event in TSTO Tragic Magic.


As I stated this event will start up tomorrow in TSTO, as long as you’ve downloaded the update, and will run for two weeks…until October 5th.

As we typically do with mini-events, we don’t share spoilers unless they’re provided to us directly from EA.  So with that being said, there are a few in-game images to be seen as a preview of what’s to come with this…so that will be below the fold for those that want to know.

Aside from that, just one more quick note about the event schedule.  Unless something changes, it looks like the Shattered Dreams Mystery Box that will arrive with this event will leave games on October 12th (so in 3 weeks).  Which would indicate we’ll have a week off after this mini-event before Halloween.  What does that mean for the TSTO schedule?  Well…

We’ll likely see Halloween on October 12th.  Maybe Halloween won’t be 5 weeks long, perhaps it’ll be 4 weeks.  If it’s 4 weeks, I’d expect to see a 1-week break and Thanksgiving start-up on the 16th of November.  If Halloween is in fact 5 weeks long, as most events are these days, it’s entirely possible we’ll have no break post Halloween and jump right into Thanksgiving on the 16th.  In either case I’d find it hard to believe that Thanksgiving would start on the 23rd of November, with Thanksgiving itself being on the 24th.  But we’ll see what happens as we move forward…

Now onto the Tragic Magic Teaser…

Quite a few new characters arriving with this mini-event…

  1. I almost sent everyone on a 24 hour task since I didn’t see the App Store update.

  2. I don’t have the App update on Google Play.

  3. Magic? Maybe a sort of teaser for THOH…

  4. And… as usual, it’s not in my App Store yet, and it’s 1:15am Wednesday morning.

    • Which app store? With Apple, I find that I usually have to go into the actual TSTO app page in the app store to see the update button…it doesn’t show up in the list of updates right away. I updated last night that way…would not have known there was an update available yet if it weren’t for this site and knowing to search for, and go into, the TSTO app store page to get it.

    • If you’re using an iPad, try doing a search for Simpsons:Tapped Out even if it’s not visible in the update list. It should show up.

      • I’ve done the search method you describe, and the update still doesn’t show up until it’s good and ready. Fortunately, it hit my store late this morning, so I’m all set. I play on an ipad, as do others, but it seems I’m one of the few who continually has this problem. At least it *eventually* always shows up. Better late than never.

  5. Yay – new stuff!! 🙂

  6. Are you able to share who to keep free? I know Homer will be used to earn event currency (he’s always a guarantee), but I can never guess accurately who else will be needed and end up spending donuts to free the ones I need.

    • How long are the jobs you are sending your characters on? Even if I start one day late, there is enough time to finish early nowadays.

      Long gone are the times when the schedule was very tight.

  7. What type of magic does EA need to give us Ernst and Gunter ?!

  8. Thanks for the heads up! 😁
