Black History Month Act 2 Is Live!

Update: Hibbert’s Dad will earn Act 2 currency as well!  Increasing your max currency payout to 71/4hrs.  I’ve updated the post below to reflect.  Special thanks to Angus Lee in the comments for pointing this out to me!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Act 2 of the Black History Event is live in Springfield!

Things kick off for Act 2 with some dialogue between Carl and Bart…

Carl: Bart, you want to do your Black History Month report on me? But why?
Bart: You’re the black person I most admire.
Carl: Really?
Bart: Totally! You’ve saved my dad’s life a million times by turning him on his side when he was passed out.
Carl: Are you sure there isn’t someone you admire more? Thurgood Marshall? Nelson Mandela? The cool bad guy from Black Panther?
Bart: Those guys are great, but I don’t want to research. So let’s do this thing already! I’m brokering a fireworks deal with Nelson in half an hour.
Carl: Eh, why not? But I can’t tell the story of my life without talking about the guy who got me here. My deadbeat dad, Carl Sr. The spelunker, excavator, and hyper-capitalist founder of the Carl’s Dad Caverns.

This triggers the Act 2 questline,Fair-Weather Father, and is followed by 4hr tasks for Carl, as well as a task to collect Act 2 Currency (350).  Fair-Weather Father is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Act 2 prizes.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 2…

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!

With Act 1, one new premium character was introduced. In addition to helping with event currency, Dr. Hibbert’s Father comes with his own, short, individual questline, so let’s take a look at the full dialogue questline now…
