Homer’s looking for a new bar in Springfield! Ready to drink around Springfield with Homer J?! Well, this is the mini-event for you!
Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes. For each of the parts of the Long Way Homer questline, you’ll have to earn via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.
So let’s take a look at the building and decoration prizes for this mini-event (we’ll cover Colette in another post), The Bendy Elbow, 5 O’Clock Somewhere, Ramen Coma, and Beer Bottle Fountain…
Yesterday, an app store update hit our games to remove the Springfield Enlightened Event. And, today a brand-new mini-event started up in our towns! (as long as you’ve downloaded the update) I will admit, this caught me completely off guard. I was expecting a week off…and honestly looking forward to one…but EA (as usual) had other plans in store for us!
As a little inside TSTO baseball: I will say, thinking about it, this does totally make sense to start up now. You’ve got this 2-week mini-event, which ends July 28th, then a week off and a 5-week major event likely to start on August 4th. That will likely run until Sept. 8th…and that’ll give you a week off, followed by a two-week mini-event, and another week off followed by Halloween starting around October 6th. Of course, this is just my suspicion…and it lines up well for this…but we’ll see what EA actually does.
Anyway…running through the game files now, I’ll be back in a bit with more info on this post once I have it. For now know that you’ll need Homer and Moe free to run 6s tasks, which will trigger the prize track and new items in your store. At that point you’ll need the Barflies free to do the mini-event currency earning tasks.
