Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

And YES, the server is currently down. When will EA learn to just go back to the 4am (ET) start times….

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

Itchy and Scratchy Land Act 1 is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that Act 1 of the Itchy and Scratchy Land Event…Ends TOMORROW June 13th at 10am ET (1400 GMT)

Once the Act 1 is over you will no longer be able to earn Knife Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning Knives 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 1 check out our rundown post here.

And don’t forget about our Tips for Starting Act 2 right here.

Be ready for the Act 2 to start at 1400 GMT (10am ET) tomorrow morning  (June 13th)….

Itchy and Scratchy Land 101: Act 1 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.

Now I know some of you still have questions so, let’s take a look…
