Christmas 2019 (Abe’s In Toyland) Week 4 Is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy New Year!

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Week 4 of Abe’s in Toyland is live in Springfield!

Things kick off for week 4 with some more dialogue between Grampa and Death…

Death: Great! So that’s how you saved Christmas.
Grampa: What are you talking about? That story was about the FBI and Communists.
Death: Close enough. Off we go to the afterlife. Come on, come on!
Grampa: I’m not going through pearly gate one until I tell you how I saved Christmas.
Death: Okay, fine! I’m an emotionless specter, but, boy, I am so going to enjoy killing you.
Grampa: It all started right after my wife Mona ran away. I was bussing tables at Spiro’s Jazz Den when I met a lovely lady named Rita Lafleur. She had legs that went all the way to the place next door… Gunther’s Polka Hole.

This triggers the week 4 questline, A Jazzy Xmas Special, and is followed by 4hr task for Grampa, as well as a task to collect Week 4 Currency (50).  A Jazzy Xmas Special is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Week 4 prizes.

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

Christmas 2019 (Abe’s In Toyland) Week 3 Is Live!

Full disclosure…it’s Christmas. (Merry Christmas!)  I’m not here.  I’ve prewritten this post and scheduled it in advance to go live when Act 3 hits.  So all of the information in this post is based off of the information EA has provided us in our event packets.  I have not verified in-game.  So if something is incorrect, I apologize and i’ll fix it tomorrow…maybe. If not tomorrow, then Friday. Today, I’m spending the day with my family…as you should be too! 🙂

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Week 3 of Abe’s in Toyland is live in Springfield!

Things kick off for week 3 with some more dialogue between Grampa and Death…

Death: Look, you need to hurry up these stories. You’re supposed to be chewing coffin dirt by dawn.
Grampa: Don’t get your ghoul underpants in a ghost knot, I’m getting there. World War Two was over. I had an honorable discharge from the Army, and a dishonorable discharge from a skin condition I picked up in Paris. The economy was booming, and every veteran was dating a nurse he’d kissed on V-J day. And yet America was threatened by internal Communist subversives from the USSR. We were headed towards a Christmas nightmare!

This triggers the week 3 questline, Abe the Toy Solider, and is followed by 4hr task for Grampa, as well as a task to collect Week 3 Currency (50).  Abe the Toy Solider is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Week 3 prizes.

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Week 2 of Abe’s in Toyland is live in Springfield!

Things kick off for week 2 with some dialogue between Grampa and Death…

Grampa: And so, I spent that whole Christmas Eve with Santa and his elf. Sliding down chimneys and eating people’s pies…
Death: What about delivering presents?
Grampa: Yeah, I don’t remember much of that.
Death: Doesn’t seem like you actually saved Christmas.
Grampa: Oh, that! That’s *another* story.

This triggers the week 2 questline, A Foggy London Christmas , and is followed by 4hr tasks for Grampa and Death, as well as a task to collect Week 2 Currency (50).  A Foggy London Christmas is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Week 2 prizes.
