Hey Howdy Hey Tappers,

It’s officially the last day of the When the Bough Breaks mini-event, it ends tomorrow (June 8th) at 11am ET.  So make sure you finish it up so you don’t miss out!

Note: You’ll still have a week before the Shattered Dreams box ends.  BUT you MUST finish this event in order to see the new box appear.  If you don’t finish this mini-event the latest box won’t appear for you.

If you missed something from this event, all of the posts related to When the Bough Breaks can be found here. 

And don’t forget Showoff!  Submissions are due tonight for tomorrow’s post!  Details here.

I’ll be back later today with the full dialogue for this event to wrap things up.  For now, I just wanted to remind you that the mini-event ends tomorrow, so be sure to finish it up before time runs out!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It is update time in Springfield my friends!  And this time it’s a battle of the babies.  As Maggie is smitten with Hudson…but Baby Gerald has other plans.  How will it all work out?  You’ve got to play When the Bough Breaks to find out…

Should You Buy Big Baby Barney and Lullabuy$?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Spending actual cash on donuts for a character is back in TSTO.  This is something EA’s been rolling out over the last few years, and it’s a new bonus for actually spending cash on donuts. (instead of just farming them)  Where they attach a premium, limited-time, character/costume/building/decoration/combo to one of the donut bundles sometimes in addition to bonus donuts.

And I want to be perfectly clear…you do not need to buy these characters to complete an event.  You can still play this game, and complete all the tasks and prizes, 100% free.  These cash-for-character items are a new type of premium currency…because donuts have been so devalued with donut farming.

This time around we’re being offered Big Baby Barney,  a premium costume for Barney, and Lullabuy$, a new building for Springfield, for a tray of 132 Donuts ($9.99 in the US)..no bonus this time.  While it’s hard for me to sit here and tell you if you should or shouldn’t spend actual cash on the game (spoiler, I think you should always spend at least a small amount…even if it’s $.99/year on the game if it brings you joy and you want to see it continue) I thought I’d do a quick breakdown of Lullabuy$ and Big Baby Barney, his tasks, questline and other details you may be curious about.

So let’s consider this an abbreviated Should I Buy….

Update Available: When the Bough Breaks

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Earlier today an update arrived in the app store.  This update will remove the Hell on Wheels splash screen, and usher in the next mini-event to our games.

Note: This mini-event will NOT start until tomorrow (Wednesday) May 25th at 11am ET.  

As is our usual policy with mini-events, when we don’t receive an event packet from EA we don’t release spoilers for the event.  This time around is no different…however,  here’s a look at the characters that will be included via the character collection in-game….

Beyond that, this will be a mini-event that will run for the usual 2 weeks.

The Shattered Dreams Mystery Box will leave our games tomorrow prior to this event starting.  So if there’s something you want, get it now. 

The Shattered Dreams Mystery Box will return with DIFFERENT content once you complete this mini-event.  So keep that in mind.  It’ll come back, but the content will be different.  

Other than that, look for your standard mini-event to start-up TOMORROW, May 25th at 11am ET.
