Note from Alissa: Some of you are asking what happens when you clear out the box. The box resets and all of the prizes that are in there reset, so you can win them all again…at least for Act 1. So that means A LOT of Ice Tiles and multiple land tokens and snowy hills.
Cheers Christmas Computing Companions,
(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “C”)
Christmas has invaded Springfield and when you think of Christmas, the first thing that should pop into your mind is gifts! The second? Re-gifting bad gifts!
One fun new element to this event is the introduction of the Re-Gifting Machine game. It is very similar to the SciFighter at the PolyVac, introduced during the SciFi event.
So let’s break down this Re-Gifting Maching…including how to play the game, what happens if you win or lose, and what prizes to expect from the Mystery Boxes…
In life, there are wins and losses. For me, I try to concentrate on all the wins. Did any of you read a little post I wrote last week? I may have mentioned a certain grocery store in it. Sure it was in reference to a Valentine’s Day wish list, but looky here, looky here… BAZINGA… the Springfield Grocery Store!
Some people started singing it not knowing what it was….
Ok… that might have been a little mean but sometimes I can’t help myself. Hello fellow Addicts. Wookiee here and still at my mad antics like usual. So, hot off an epic time at Springfield in Florida, I had to take the time to share a realization I had while enjoying the heck out of my life.
The “mini-update” has dropped in the weeeeeeeeee early mornin hours…good thing Bunny’s floppy ears were to the ground listening…Here we go…(Special thanks to Alissa for having majority of this typed up. Made my extra dialog/pic posting a breeze. TEAMWORK!!)
Conventional Wisdom Pt. 1
Lisa will just start the task automatically
Lisa: Wow, Dad. What are you doing up so early? Homer: Getting ready for work. Lisa: But you rarely ever go to work. At least not on time. Or with – what’s the thing on your face – a smile? Homer: Yep. I’m smiling because for two glorious days and one even more glorious night, work isn’t actually going to be work. It’s going to be a convention! Lisa: What’s so great about that? What happens at a convention?
Homer: Uh…nothing. Just work. It’s really boring. Now where’s that inflatable gorilla wearing women’s underwear that I ordered? Make Homer Wait for the Mailman 12hrs
Keep Lisa free when complete
As soon as you complete the first dialogue, the High-Glow Waste Barrels will be added to your Premium Stuff for purchase. (40 Donuts). Multiplier of 2.00% bonus money and XP to all jobs. It is a 3×3 square in size and about as high as Springfield falls. . The animation on it does make the barrel on top rotate around.
Conventional Wisdom Pt. 2 After tapping Lisa
Lisa: The convention’s in a couple days, Dad. Shouldn’t you be packing? Homer: Good idea. I’ll start with my convention supplies. Ball-point pens, notepads, business cards… Lisa: Okay, Dad. I’ll leave you to it. Homer: Great. See you later, sweetie! Now to dump this crap and put in my real convention supplies. Champagne, animal tranquilizers, superhero costume…. Make Homer Pack for the Convention 4Hrs
Conventional Wisdom Pt. 3 After tapping Homer
Homer: Well, I’m all packed.
Lisa: Four bags? You’re only going away for a night. How much clothing do you need?
Homer: Oh, right…clothing. I should pack some of that as well. Make Homer Re-Pack for the Convention 4hrs
Homer: Woo-hoo! This is going to be the greatest weekend ever! I’m going to feel like crap on Sunday!
And you will to, if you miss the Simpson’s 25th Season Premiere. This Sunday at 8/7c on FOX. And to celebrate the premiere, a FREE decoration for your Squidport has been placed in your inventory!
At this point, you can now go into your inventory box and retrieve the Three-Eyed Sushi. It is place-able in your Squidport area only. It is on a 4×4 square and about the height as other shops. The animation on this one is Blinky…well…blinking. 🙂
And there you have it…complete with pics. I have my DVR set to record this Sunday’s episode. Season 25 Premiere! CAN’T WAIT!!!!
Last thoughts…just how big do these new items look in comparison? Hope this helps.
