Springfield Jobs Act 3 is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy Monday Friends!  The weekend is over and there’s a a brand new Act of the Springfield Job!  Act 3 has arrived, so have at it my friends….

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

Your first task is to earn 120  so that you can unlock the Monte Burns Casino and then your heisters kick things off with a 4hr task to, what else, heist!

Act 3 Runs until May 9th (when the entire event will end)

Just what does Act 3 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look… Continue reading

Springfield Jobs Act 2 is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that Act 2 of the Springfield Jobs Event…Ends MONDAY April 23rd at 1400 GMT (10am ET). (I’ll remind you again during Sunday’s Open Thread)

Also an IMPORTANT REMINDER…Starting tomorrow (Saturday) save your Daily Challenges (you can complete them, just don’t claim them), so that on Monday when Act 3 hits you’ll be ahead of the game.

Once the Act 2 is over you will no longer be able to earn Crown-Less Jewel Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning Jewels if you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Act starts…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Act.

For a rundown on everything that was included with Act 2 check out our rundown post here.

Be ready for the Act 3 to start at 1400 GMT (10am ET) Monday morning  (April 23rd)….

Springfield Jobs 101: Act 2 Crafting

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah the Crafting post….where I give you the how-to and break down each and every item available to craft, so you don’t miss a thing!

Love it or hate it, EA has proven over the last couple of years that crafting is here to stay.  While the prizes themselves are pretty self-explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”.  Crafting requires some self-direction.  You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly.  Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not. And, as with all things, for some events crafting is easier than others.

Act 2 brought eight new craftables to Springfield, so let’s take a closer look at the new items…
