Turbo Tappin’ Moe’s Ark: Act 2

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

From amusement parks to zoos, EA certainly has the gamut of summertime travel covered!  The Moe’s Ark (Springfield Zoo) event is in full swing, with Act 2 hitting our games earlier today.

As was mentioned on the rundown post Act 2 of Moe’s Ark runs until August 29th, and you’ll need to send Larry Kidkill on a 4hr task to get things started.

Don’t forget the Questline will help you get some bonus prize currency…so make sure you complete it to earn that extra currency…also the questline is there to guide you.  Make sure you complete the main questline in order to unlock things like habitats and more.

Now let’s work our way through the wildness of the Act 2 questline…

Moe’s Ark – Act Two Calendar – and Numbers You Need to Get It All!

Whoooohooooo! We are finished with Act I, and ready to dive into Act II…which coincidentally has a giant killer whale auditorium and squid associated with it, so be careful where you dive!

For all of you who are tired of animals, you are in luck. We are going to be moving (at least for a bit) into the slippery, slimy world of sea creatures, as well as some long-missing characters from our “Springfield Proper” (the original parts that make up the actual Springfield) in our games.

While she is not part of the actual Prize Track…Ralphie finally gets his Mom back! Whooot Whooot! She doesn’t show up on this calendar, but is projected to show up on the 18th (Gil Deal). So SAVE YOUR BONUTS ( a lot of them…as she is 300 donuts).

T-Rex may have only been in one episode of the show…but he is the Main Prize in this Act.  Go figure. And when you figure out how EA and the writers are going to pull all of these disparate characters together, let me know.

Meanwhile…onto the math and the calendars.

Moe’s Ark Act 2 is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, it’s that time in Springfield…time for a new Act! It’s 10am here on the east coast and that means it’s time for Moe’s Ark Act 2…so have at it, assuming you can get into the game of course!

Yes, odds are the servers will likely be down.  May I suggest waiting an hour or so before trying?  Unless you like seeing the Bart Screen…and spinning donut.  mmmm spinning donuts

Remember…this is an automatic change in your game.  Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..

Questline should start right up for you and you’ll have to do a 4hr task with Larry Kidkill.  Hopefully you saved up those Daily Challenges to get a good jump start!

Act 2 runs until August 29th (when Act 3 will start)

Just what does Act 2 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look… Continue reading

Should I Spend Donuts On Pinkbeardy Yogurt?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Lions and Tigers and Emus…oh my!  The Springfield Zoo (aka Moe’s Ark) event is in full swing in our pocket-sized towns!  Of course, by now, we all know that a new event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with limited-time premium items to tempt us.

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 Pinkbeardy Yogurt to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this pirate yogurt shop to your town…

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Skin, Week 7

It was four years ago, just after the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs bracket was complete and I was filling out my bracket for the 2014 FIFA World Cup that I thought it might be cool to do a The Simpsons Tapped Out bracket. Here we are at the next World Cup and it’s time for our fourth TSTO Addicts Bracket Battle!

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there are plenty of character skins in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. We present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Skin Bracket Battle.

Moe’s Ark Act One Prize Guide – Brittany Brockman

OK. This little lady has a ton more smarts than her Dad, Kent. And unlike a lot of other “Randoms” that show up in our game, she has appeared in no fewer than TEN episodes of the Simpsons, as well as the Simpsons Movie!

The only real issue…is that almost none of them feature the Zoo, and her most notable appearance is in the “Malibu Stacey” episode.

But, hey…she’s a FULL CHARACTER…and she’s FREE!

So..let’s dive into what makes Brittany da bomb of Bart girlfriends (kinda) and Lisa’s rival (kinda)…but mostly just a new character for our games!

Friday Filler- Jumping the Shark with Zooaligical Profiling

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Once again, I am writing this early, as I will actually be in Alaska the day you are reading this…Friday…which may be Saturday for some…but because of the header, is mostly Friday…except when it isn’t, like today.

That last paragraph makes about as much sense as this event.  Perhaps EA is going to figure out a way to pull it together somehow with the dialogue. But, it is going to take a rope the size of a galaxy, and a giant Holy Lion to pull together.

And, frankly, I think this a case of “jumping the shark” in TSTO that is both troubling and was likely born out of the same kind of staff meeting that the original “Jump the Shark,” episode came from.

Not familiar with the term? Read on…
