Tragic Magic Is Live! The Rundown and What You Need to Know

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Yesterday, an app store update hit our games to remove the Showbiz Showdown 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, Bart, and Lisa free for 6s tasks to start things.  This will kick off the event for you…

This mini-event ends, in 2 weeks, on October 5th. 

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 Party Woes questline….

Homer: Marge! Wake up! It’s Thursday! They’re coming!
Marge: Homer, the garbage men come every Thursday morning…
Homer: Bart! Lisa! GET UP!
Bart: Do you have to wake us up every time the stupid garbage gets picked up?
Lisa: Yeah, if anything, wake me up for the recycling or compost.
Homer: None of you appreciate the miracle of the garbage men…
Bart: And we’re fine continuing to live out our days not appreciating it.
Homer: Garbage men are civilization’s most prized individuals!
Bart: Yawn.
Homer: For millions of years, they’ve gone house to house, cave to cave, while humanity sleeps…
Bart And Lisa: …they pull up to our curbs, and take away all of our most-foul junk.
Bart: We know! You say this every week!
Lisa: *pointing outside* Wait, what’s that giant box they’re throwing into their truck?
Marge: Oh no! They’re throwing away the bouncy house for Maggie’s birthday party!
Lisa: The delivery guy must have left it too close to the trash bins!
Homer: Garbage men are supposed to take all the old crap we don’t want, not the new crap we NEED! Give us back our crap!
Bart: Whoa! Now they’re smashing it all together in their trash smusher thingy!
Marge: Now what are we going to do for Maggie’s birthday? The party’s in 3 hours!
Bart: Just cancel it. She won’t remember.
Maggie: *suck suck*
Homer: That’s true. You never remembered us blowing off your first birthday.
Bart: Wait, what?!
Lisa: Well… I could always put on a little magic show for Maggie. Kids love magic!
Marge: Oh, that’d be wonderful, Lisa!
Lisa: Hmm… I wonder where I left my magician’s outfit…

After you’ve completed the tasks you’ll launch into the Tragic Magic mini-event…

The questline to follow for the free prizes is…The Greatest Trick Ever Performed.

Prizes are as follows…

The Great Simpsina (Costume)- The Greatest Trick Ever Performed Pt. 1 & 185

Tarot Table- The Greatest Trick Ever Performed  Pt. 2 & 150

Magic Shop- The Greatest Trick Ever Performed Pt. 3 & 150

Mesmerino- The Greatest Trick Ever Performed  Pt. 4 & 185

Fortune Teller Booth- The Greatest Trick Ever Performed Pt. 5 & 230

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

Characters who earn currency…

Princess Opal (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.

New stuff


 Princess Opal’s and Princess Opal– 150 Donuts (earns Event Currency)

Returning Stuff

Working on it…will have it posted as soon as I finish the list

There’s also a cash item available as well…

Diablo and The Killotuine- $9.99 USD.  A character/Decoration bundle and a tray of donuts. (Killotuine earns a 3.5% bonus…while I’ll have a breakdown post on this up eventually…for those that can’t wait, I think this is a good pickup.  And I’ll be spending the cash to grab it)

Shattered Dreams Mystery Box

Will reappear once you’ve completed this event with new items to “win”.  I’ll have a post on the updates to the box up later in the event.

The box will start for you as soon as you complete this event, and it will run until October 12th…which is likely when we’ll see Halloween hit.

And that’s it my friends, the details on the Tragic Magic mini-event!

Thoughts on the new event?  Premium character?  Prizes? Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. Hey, no Update here. Playing on IOS. Cant log in cause verification code is not working. What can i do?

  2. So Safi, Homer is in a toroidal quandary. Does that mean he is donut shaped??? Inquiring minds and all that…..

  3. Anyone else having the issue where you can’t select Maggaggie to send her in the required first task?

  4. Got both the Diablo and Cregg Demon, but am a liiiitle bit annoyed that they called it a Killotuine and not a Killotine, even Killoutine since that makes more sense spelling and pronouncing wise.

  5. I have to say I love the TA DA sound that’s comes when you release characters from their jobs. TaDa

  6. Cregg Demon also earn currency, 7 magic wands
