Game of Games: Week 4 Fourscore and a Halfmonth

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Let the games begin!  After a long hiatus, we finally have a major event in Springfield!  Game of Games has arrived and it looks to be a game fest of nerdy proportions!

The Game of Games follows the same event structure that the Simpsons Christmas Special and Valentine’s Day 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 Act 4 we are tasked with finishing out the Evergreen Terrors story!  As we should all know by now, these multi-events lead to some phenomenal dialogue.  So let’s take a look at the full dialogue for the final week of Game of Games, in case you missed any of it by tappin’ too fast…

Game of Games is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Game of Games Event Ends TOMORROW July 10th.

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.

Marge: Oh, Homie. The kids found passes without you and are already at the convention.
Homer: Bart doesn’t need my help? I only hope that’s true when he’s old enough to need to be bailed out of jail.

This is followed by a 6s tasks for Homer and Marge.  Once completed you’ll trigger the week 4 questline, which will take you through unlocking all of the week 4 prizes, Fourscore and a Halfmonth.

Game of Games Week 4 is About to Start

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow morning, Wednesday, July 3rd, Week 4 (Act 4) of Game of Games will be starting.  The official start time is 10am ET (1400 GMT).

While the Week 3 (or weeks 1 or 2 for that matter) questline won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Week 4 starts, all of the Week 3 Premium items will be leaving the store.

So if you planned to purchase Mr. Dirt or any of the returning Premium Content, (SIBs linked) do so before they leave our games tomorrow morning.

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Week 4 to start…

During Week 4 Homer FINALLY secures the E4 Passes, only to discover the kids already found their own way in.  And of course, The Evergreen Terrors compete in the final round of the gaming tournament…while still battling Report Card. (who seems hell-bent on destroying Bart)  You’ll have to follow along with the dialogue to find out what happens, but here are the characters needed for week 4 tasks:

Homer
Lisa
Bart
Milhouse
Martin
Nelson
Apu
Cletus
Sophie Krustofsky (earns regular premium)
New Premium Character Week 4 (Earns Special Premium)

You’ll also need Homer and Marge free for the initial questline objective…

There will also be one new premium stand-alone Character (at least according to the files it’s a character) introduced during week 4, and that character will be able to help with the currency earning for week 4.  (75 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase the character)

And that’s it my friends!  Be prepared for Week 4 to start up tomorrow morning!

Thoughts on week 3?  Ready for week 4?  Excited to see where the story goes?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
