Social Currency Event Rundown

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers,

Well now that Valentine’s Day has finally left our games we’re all kind of sitting here wondering…what’s next?  With today’s update hitting & not bringing a new Level with it  what the heck changed?  Well….there’s now a little incentive to visit your neighbor-eenos on a daily basis!  F-R-I-N-K Points…err Friend Points (you’ll see the reason for the change below the fold).

Friend points (FP) earn you prizes…like previous social events (only this one appears to be permanent).  Currently there are 5 prizes you can unlock earning FPs.  Once you’ve unlocked all 5 you’ll reach the max level, but it does appear EA has plans to add more.

How do you activate the social event and start earning FP?  You won’t see it right away in your main Springfield Screen.  To unlock it you’ll need to go to your friend screen and visit one of your neighbor-eenos (yes it works on Other Springfield…which is what I used for my Screenshots).  Once you tap a building you’ll see blue FP come out (in addition to the normal cash and XP).  They look like this:

Once you collect your first FP some dialog will auto-start with Frink and Homer.  This will go over the details of how to collect points and earn prizes.  And it will also activate the event in your game. THERE IS NO RUSH on this.  It does not appear like it’s something EA plans to remove.  It looks as tho it’s a permanent addition to TSTO.  So take your time and have fun with it!

Neighbor-eenos are now important ALL the time in TSTO.  So if you need Friends be sure to check out our friend request page!

Now for more details…because I know some of you like to play the game in real time I’ve put the major details (and what the prizes are) below the fold.  So if you don’t want to find out more info about the event don’t click more.   Continue reading
