Should I Spend Donuts on the Martian Vacation, Retired Homer, and Empty-Nest Marge?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Gather ’round the tapping device everyone, it’s update time in TSTO!  And there’s no time like the present for the residents of our pocket-sized Springfields to make New Year’s Resolutions…even if we are 16 days into 2020 already!    Of course, an all-new mini-event means all-new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Martian Vacation, Retired Homer, and Empty-Nest Marge to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this blast from holidays of future passed combo to your town…

Turbo Tappin’ Holidays of Future Past: Main Questline and Prizes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Update time in TSTO!  Time for the first official update of the New Year!  As the latest mini-event in TSTO hit our towns…this time to celebrate the New Year…?  I guess Santa didn’t give EA that calendar I said they needed for Christmas. 

Of course, as with all events, a questline comes with it to help move us through the ins and outs of the event…and unlock all of the prizes.  As was mentioned on the rundown post this mini-event is your typical standard mini-event.  Follow the questline to unlock prizes and call it a day…until the next event.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just how to unlock all-new prizes…

Update Alert: Holidays of Future Past is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Fifteen days into 2020 and we have our first update of the roaring 20s!  To, what should be, no one’s surprise…it’s a mini-event!  What are we covering this time?  The future!  (insert loud groan from Patric)

Holidays of Future Past is officially live in our towns…and with it FINALLY arrives future Homer and Marge.  Two characters I was incredibly annoyed weren’t included with the previous future updates.

Remember, if you haven’t downloaded the update from the app store (it hit last night), you’ll need to do so in order to see the new content.  This update will remove the snow from your Springfield, so be prepared for that. And if you don’t see the update available try these steps:  Hard close your App store, clear your cache, restart your device.  When it reboots, open your app store and search Tapped Out.

What’s included with this event?  Let’s take a look….
Note: You’ll need the Simpson family free for a 6s task to kick things off. 

Holidays of Future Past Mini-Event Ends January 29th

Update Info (New Years 2020)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a heads up, there is a new update on the server.  This is (likely going to be) an App Store Update.  This will remove the Christmas splash screen…and possibly the snow. Not for sure that it’ll remove the snow, but good chance.  So take a photo of your town (via Town Portrait) while you can, to preserve its appearance in the snow.

From what I can tell, this is likely a mini-event.  That will run from tomorrow (Jan 15th) to Jan 29th.

It’s bath and bedtime for the little Addicts, so I’ll possibly have more info for you on this later tonight after they’ve gone to bed.  For now know that there is an update coming.  So there’s something to be excited about! 🙂

Light SPOILERS Below the fold… (Oh, and before you ask…because I know you will, I do NOT see the Golden Goose coming back with this one)

UPDATE: Yes, it is, in fact, an app store update.  And it does, in fact, remove the snow. So take a town portrait shot before updating…

Here’s the app store description:

Christmas 2019 (Abe’s in Toyland) Prize Guide: Act 4, Prize 5 Rita LaFleur

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, despite the new year…Christmas continues in our pocket-sized towns.  The snow got old a few days ago, and is now starting to turn black.  The residents of Springfield are daydreaming of Spring…and ready to pummel the next person who sings Jingle Bells.  However, finally, an end is in sight, as we reach the last week of our Christmas story…

Abe’s in Toyland follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!

For Week 4 Act 4, we’re following the fourth, Grampa Saves Christmas, story…the one where he actually saves Christmas!  Kinda, sorta.  All of the prizes unlocked during week 4 play a role in that storyline.

Guys, we’ve reached the end.  It’s time for Christmas to be over in Springfield.  Of course, it’s not over until we’ve broken down the final prize…Rita LaFleur.

Abe’s in Toyland is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Abe’s in Toyland Event Ends TOMORROW January 8th. 

We’re well into the New Year.  The Wise Men have arrived.  It’s time for Christmas to end.

As far as questlines go, what’s happened in the past is that the current prize you’re working on (on any questline) you were able to finish.  Once that current prize was completed then the questline disappeared.  

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.

Abe’s in Toyland follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!

With Act 4, week 4, one new premium costume was introduced. In addition to helping with event currency, Aaron Burr comes with his own, short, individual questline, so let’s take a look at the full dialogue questline now…
