Treehouse of Horror XXXII Act 2 is Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know (updated and complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Murky water, tress have changed colors, and leaves are blowing in Springfield, that can only mean one thing…the annual Treehouse of Horror update is upon us!  Yes, with this annual event we never know if we’ll get a trick or a treat, if it’ll be Halloween-y or spoof-y…but it arrives in our pocket-sized towns nonetheless year after year.  And this year, marks the 10th…yes the TENTH…Treehouse of Horror update in TSTO.  So what does EA have in store for us this year?  Dinosaurs!  In true Treehouse of Horror spoof style.   As always, loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up…

Remember, this Act will still be playable until the event ends on November 10th.  However, Act 3 will start on October 24th (Note the Sunday start date). 

Things kick off for Act 2 with some dialogue between Springfielders on how to get rid of the dinos…

Helen Lovejoy: Dinosaurs are destroying this town…not that it wasn’t already in ruins!
Grampa: Don’t blame me. Blame dinosaur me! And while you’re at it, could you put dinosaur me out of its misery?
Quimby: There’s no need for anything rash! City Hall has contingencies for situations like this.
Superintendent Chalmers: The Springfield National Guard?
Quimby: Something with even more firepower…the Springfield Militia!
Bumblebee Man: Son solo cinco hombres en camiones monstruo!
Sideshow Mel: Translating for our English-speaking audience: “That’s just five guys in monster trucks!”
Cletus: YEE-HAW! Translating for our non-Hillbilly-speaking audience: “YEE-HAW!”

This triggers the Act 2  questline, This Means Dino War and is followed by  2hr tasks for Quimby, Sideshow Mel, Homer, Grampa, and Grampasaurus, as well as a task to collect Act 2 Currency (155), and a task to collect/tap 15 dinosaurs.  This Means Dino War is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.

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

TSTO and Halloween: A Brief History and What Your Expectations for 2021 Are

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy October 1st! Can you believe it’s already October?  Feels like it was just March, but here we are!  Summer is dead and gone (at least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere) and the cooler temperatures of Autumn have arrived!  Riley (my 5-year-old daughter, for those that don’t know) noted that she could see her breath this morning as I dropped her off for school!  Man those temperatures sure dropped fast!  (now we start the time of year where I wished I lived in Florida…)

Yes, Autumn is here….and while cooler temperatures kind of depress me, Autumn does mean it’s almost time for the Addicts Community’s favorite time of year in TSTO…Halloween and the annual Treehouse of Horror Event! (although, long time players know, I’m still partial to Christmas)

So what will this year’s event entail?  Well, no one knows yet…although I have a feeling we’ll know soon (remember my prediction over the summer, based on update patterns, was Halloween will start October 6th).  In the meantime, since the 2021 THOH update will officially be the 10th Halloween update to hit TSTO…yes, I said 10, isn’t that insane?!…I thought it would be fun to take a look back at a brief history of the past 9 events, before looking ahead to #10.

So here’s a brief rundown of the Halloween history in TSTO…
