IMPORTANT NOTE:Act 4 is slated to start later today TUESDAY, September 8th. Act 3 (and Acts 1 and 2 for that matter) isn’t going anywhere, so if you didn’t finish it you’ll still have time to. Look for Act 4 to start around 11am ET. (1500 UTC)
You’ll need Bart and Database free for the first round of tasks (and those earning event currency). Also, 1 new premium character combo will be released. 150 donuts for the combo.
Act 3 of The Van Houtens is upon us. Time to get popular!
The Van Houtens Event follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it. This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting just over a week (10 days) and taking us through a new part of the event!
For Act 3 we’re tasked with collecting Sjoelbak Discs! Each part of the story will unlock another prize themed for the second part of the story. So let’s take a look at the details behind Act 3 and the Turbo Tappin’ Version for The Most Popular Girl in School…
Note: Sorry guys, I was running around this morning and quickly put this up without logging into my game. That’ll teach me to post without checking in-game. Always do it, and the one time I don’t it bites me in the butt. Anyway, Gil is back in Springfield as well…
I’ll have a breakdown post on this in the coming days. But do note that Secretary Van Houten does NOT earn event currency. And Marine One earns 4.25% bonus on cash and XP.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Happy Sunday! Feel free to consider this your Open Thread.
Who’s ready for more Van Houten fun? Act 3 of the Van Houtens has arrived!
Remember, this Act will still be playable until the event ends on September 16th. However, Act 4 will start on September 8th (note the Tuesday start date).
Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between the kids of Springfield Elementary and Milhouse…
Lewis Clark: Hi, Milhouse. Can I come to your birthday party this weekend? Milhouse: Sherri and Terri got the last two spaces. Lewis Clark: But they’re in line behind me. Milhouse: They made their reservation using the Milhouse Birthday Attendance App. Lewis Clark: Then why are they in line? Sherri and Terri: Suspenders and a belt, fellah. Can’t take any chances on getting shut out. Bart: Milhouse, didn’t you just have a birthday party? And why are you standing behind a maître d’s podium? Milhouse: Pfft. That birthday party was pre-Annika. I’ve got so many requests to hang out now, I’ve had to schedule multiple birthday party “reenactments” through the end of the month. Lewis, would you take the late seating two weeks from Friday? Lewis Clark: I guess I’ll have to.
This triggers the Act 3 questline, The Most Popular Girl in School,and is followed by 4hr tasks for Bart and Milhouse, as well as a task to collect Act 2 Currency (105). The Most Popular Girl In School is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.
Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 3…
