Black History Month Act 2 Is Live!

Update: Hibbert’s Dad will earn Act 2 currency as well!  Increasing your max currency payout to 71/4hrs.  I’ve updated the post below to reflect.  Special thanks to Angus Lee in the comments for pointing this out to me!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Act 2 of the Black History Event is live in Springfield!

Things kick off for Act 2 with some dialogue between Carl and Bart…

Carl: Bart, you want to do your Black History Month report on me? But why?
Bart: You’re the black person I most admire.
Carl: Really?
Bart: Totally! You’ve saved my dad’s life a million times by turning him on his side when he was passed out.
Carl: Are you sure there isn’t someone you admire more? Thurgood Marshall? Nelson Mandela? The cool bad guy from Black Panther?
Bart: Those guys are great, but I don’t want to research. So let’s do this thing already! I’m brokering a fireworks deal with Nelson in half an hour.
Carl: Eh, why not? But I can’t tell the story of my life without talking about the guy who got me here. My deadbeat dad, Carl Sr. The spelunker, excavator, and hyper-capitalist founder of the Carl’s Dad Caverns.

This triggers the Act 2 questline,Fair-Weather Father, and is followed by 4hr tasks for Carl, as well as a task to collect Act 2 Currency (350).  Fair-Weather Father is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Act 2 prizes.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 2…

Black History Month Act 2 Starts Tomorrow

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

There seems to be some confusion with dates, so…

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow morning, Friday, February 14th, Act 2 of the Black History Month Event will be starting.  The official start time is 10am ET.

The Act 1 questline won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Act 2 starts.

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Act 2 to start…

During Act 2 it’ll be Carl’s turn to tell his story…his tale of parental neglect!  Of course, you’ll have to follow along with the dialogue to find out what happens, but the same characters used for Act 1 currency tasks should be used for the Act 2 currency tasks, with the exception of Hibbert’s Dad.    Again, Hibbert’s Dad will NOT earn currency for Act 2.  So we’re looking at:
Homer
Lisa
Bart
Grampa
Marge
Moe
Quimby
Carl
Lou
Bernice Hibbert
Dr. Hibbert
New Premium Character for Act 2

You’ll also need Carl free for the initial questline objective…

There will also be one new premium character combo introduced during Act 2, and that character will be able to help with the currency earning for Act 2.  (150 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase the combo)

And that’s it my friends!  Be prepared for Act 2 to start up tomorrow morning!

Thoughts on Act 1?  Ready for Act 2?  Excited to see where the story goes?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
