Should I Spend Donuts On The Escape Zone?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

New holiday alert in Springfield! Yes, it’s time to break out your stretchy pants as Thanksgiving is fast approaching for our favorite yellow family!  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 The Escape Zone to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this puzzle to your town…

Turbo Tappin’ Thanksgiving 2018: Main Questline and Prizes

Hey guys, here’s a quick Turbo Tappin’ for the Thanksgiving event.  It’ll be light here until I get back from Vacation (I’m home late tomorrow night, so likely won’t get much done until Friday AM).  But once I’m home I’ll put together full lists of what you can expect out of this event (Black Friday too)…Thanks for your patience!  -Alissa

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Out with one holiday and in with another!  Yes, the murky waters of Halloween have left our games and it’s time for a little turkey, as Thanksgiving makes its way into our pocket-sized towns with an all-new mini-event!

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…

Thankgiving 2018 has hit the store! Here are the basics.

Phew! We got a nice long break between the end of Halloween and the start of this new Mini-Event of a whole…let’s see…4 or 5 hours? Nice. Thanks EA.

But, at least we are staying ahead of the seasons, and not mixing them all up like they do at Costco and Target.

Thanksgiving is upon us! (except don’t start thawing the turkey yet…you’ll get botulism).  It looks like this event is going to be “Moe-Centric” which makes me thankful that it isn’t another Homer-Centric event! Not that I have an ax to grind with Homer, but let’s face it…he always steals the drumsticks before anyone else can get one.

Here are the basics that we know about so far. Alissa will do a much more complete version when she returns from Disneyworld tonight!

Thanksgiving is Coming!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Thanksgiving has hit the files.  Which means we should see an update shortly.  This will be an App Store Update, so check your app stores for the download.  On the initial look through of the files, here are a few things I can tell you:

-This will be a standard mini event, running 2 weeks long.  So End Date is November 28th. (Christmas will likely start the following week)

-Everything for this mini-event will center around Moe…and his family

-Yes, Black Friday Mystery Boxes will be back.  Those will start on November 20th, and they’ll end on the 28th.

-This event includes 8 new buildings, 3 new characters, and 3 new decorations…as well as a ton of returning content.

I’m still in Florida (Disney World) until tomorrow night so Patric will cover the rundown post when the mini event hits.  Bare with us, as I won’t be able to do much (post wise) until I’m home.  Fortunately, it’s a standard mini event…pretty simple to finish.

So remember to check those app stores and enjoy the Thanksgiving Mini Event!
