Black History Month Prize Guide: Act 1, Prizes 5 Clarissa Wellington

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s update time in Springfield!  And after 8 years of TSTO, we’re finally tackling Black History Month!  No time like the present for EA, huh?   What’s in store for us this time?  Well, we’re tasked with finding out the history of Dr. Hibbert, Carl, Lou, and the Simpson Family!  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.

Black History Month (Heroes of Springfield) 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 Act 1 we’re tasked with collecting stethoscopes!  Each part of the story will unlock another prize themed for the first part of the story, Dr. Hibbert’s history.

So let’s take a look at prize 5 on the Black History Prize track…Clarissa  Wellington…

Black History Month Act 2 Starts Tomorrow

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

There seems to be some confusion with dates, so…

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow morning, Friday, February 14th, Act 2 of the Black History Month Event will be starting.  The official start time is 10am ET.

The Act 1 questline won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Act 2 starts.

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Act 2 to start…

During Act 2 it’ll be Carl’s turn to tell his story…his tale of parental neglect!  Of course, you’ll have to follow along with the dialogue to find out what happens, but the same characters used for Act 1 currency tasks should be used for the Act 2 currency tasks, with the exception of Hibbert’s Dad.    Again, Hibbert’s Dad will NOT earn currency for Act 2.  So we’re looking at:
Homer
Lisa
Bart
Grampa
Marge
Moe
Quimby
Carl
Lou
Bernice Hibbert
Dr. Hibbert
New Premium Character for Act 2

You’ll also need Carl free for the initial questline objective…

There will also be one new premium character combo introduced during Act 2, and that character will be able to help with the currency earning for Act 2.  (150 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase the combo)

And that’s it my friends!  Be prepared for Act 2 to start up tomorrow morning!

Thoughts on Act 1?  Ready for Act 2?  Excited to see where the story goes?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Martin Confusion

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Still playing a giant game of catch-up (anyone have the mustard?) between both work and this site.  This was the first time I’ve taken a week off in February, ever.  And while it was great for travel (Disney crowd level was great), it apparently was bad for work (busy season)!  So I’m plugging away trying to get caught up on both.

I’ll get there…eventually.

Anyway, something I wanted to address that I’m seeing several times in the comments.  Martin and the prize track….
