Friday Filler – Really?

Thank Grog It’s Firday,

I don’t know about you guys, but I have to admit that I didn’t even realize it was June. Really.  May felt like one big 90-Day March…and then, all of the sudden, it was “something completely different.”

So, the Pride Mini-Event is over. The reason I knew it was June, is that I remembered that the event ended on June 3rd. And the event ended Wednesday, so I was able to deduce that it had to be June.  And probably the 3rd.

But there’s a reason for my confusion…and I think it’s legitimate.

I honestly don’t know if it’s 2020, or if it’s 1968.

And then I remembered, “oh…right…they had a Pride Event…so it can’t be 1968.”   And then I remembered that most of what I am seeing on TV is being broadcast over cell phone cameras, so it REALLY can’t be 1968.  Except it still kinda feels like 1968. They launched some guys into space. There were some riots. So it must be 1968!

But wait! I know it’s not 1968…because we are playing a mobile device game about the Simpsons. And the Simpsons didn’t show up for…wait…when did they show up?  How long have we been playing this game?  Is this just a bad LSD trip?  Is it REALLY 1968?

Black History Month 2020: Act 3 Questline, Premium Character Mabel

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!

With Act 4, one new premium character was introduced. In addition to helping with event currency, Mabel comes with her own, short, individual questline, so let’s take a look at the full dialogue questline now…

Black History Month Act 4 Is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially after 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Act 4 of the Black History Event is live in Springfield!

Things kick off for Act 4 with some dialogue between Lou, Quimby, Wiggum, and Grampa…among others:

Quimby: Officer Lou, please accept this medal of honor… or bravery… or something. I can’t read the font.
Wiggum: Hey, I was there too!
Quimby: Here is a coupon for five percent off all kazoos at King Toot’s.
Wiggum: *impressed noise*
Quimby: Well, we’ve honored our hero for Black History Month. My job here is done. I’m going to Cabo.
Grampa: Hold it right there! I happen to know a great Black Springfieldian who deserves to be honored.
Quimby: For the last time, Disco Stu is not black. I believe he is Armenian.
Grampa: I’m talking about my ancestor, Virgil Simpson, ya idjit!
Homer: Sorry. He’s a little senile. I assure you, no Simpson ever did anything great.
Grampa: He invented an old timey pastry called wheel cakes, or as we know them today – donuts!
Homer: *gasp* Everyone shut up and listen to the story of the greatest man who ever lived!

This triggers the Act 4 questline, From the Mouth of Abes, and is followed by 4hr task for everyone to listen to Grampa, as well as a task to collect Act 4 Currency (350).  From the Mouths of Abes is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Act 4 prizes.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 4…
