THOH XXX Week 4 Starts Tomorrow

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

You guys…Riley’s 4 years old today! Happy Birthday to the Tiny Addict…I can’t believe she’s already 4. For those of you that listened to Addicts Live on Saturday, you’ll know that she celebrated her Birthday with a donut party this past weekend!  Lots of sugar was consumed by lots of little kiddos!

Anyway…enough of me getting sappy that the Tiny Addict is 4 today! (if you want to see more photos you can check out my Instagram @AddictsAlissa)  Back to TSTO…

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow morning, Wednesday, November 13th, Week 4 (Act 4) of THOH XXX…the FINAL Act of this Event…will be starting.  The official start time is 9am ET. An hour earlier because Daylight Savings ended in the US recently.  Files show start time as 1400 UTC, which is converted to 9am ET now.

While the Week 3 questline shouldn’t be going anywhere (and weeks 1 and 2 for that matter), so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Week 4 starts, all of the Week 3 Premium items will be leaving the store.

So if you plan on purchasing, Bridge Troll Moe do so before they leave our games tomorrow morning. (SIBs Linked)

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Week 4 to start…

During Week 4 we’ll receive a visit from the Rigellian Devil himself…and J. Rigellian Christ makes a return appearance…as Marge tries to get her children’s souls back.  Of course, you’ll have to follow along with the dialogue to find out what happens, but the same characters used for Act 3 currency tasks should be used for the Act 4 currency tasks, with the exception of Bridge Troll Moe.  Again, Bridge Troll Moe will NOT earn currency for Week 4.  So we’re looking at God, Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Grampa, Maggie, Nelson, Milhouse, and the New Premium Character for Week 4…

You’ll also need Kodos, Kang, and Marge free for the initial questline objective…

There will also be one new premium character combo introduced during week 4, and that character will be able to help with the currency earning for week 4.  (150 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase the combo)

And that’s it my friends!  Be prepared for Week 4 to start up tomorrow morning!

Thoughts on week 3?  Ready for week 4?  Excited to see how the story finishes?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

THOH XXX Week 3 Starts Tomorrow

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow morning, Wednesday, November 6th, Week 3 (Act 3) of THOH XXX will be starting.  The official start time is 9am ET. An hour earlier because Daylight Savings ended in the US this past weekend.  Files show start time as 1400 UTC, which is converted to 9am ET now.

While the Week 2 questline won’t be going anywhere (and week 1 for that matter), so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Week 3 starts, all of the Week 2 Premium items will be leaving the store.

So if you plan on purchasing, Dr. Griffin and the Invisible House do so before they leave our games tomorrow morning. (SIBs Linked)

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Week 3 to start…

During Week 3 Dracula summons villains from various Grimm Fairytales and crowns himself Lord Dracula.  Of course, you’ll have to follow along with the dialogue to find out what happens, but the same characters used for Act 2 currency tasks should be used for the Act 3 currency tasks, with the exception of Dr. Griffin.  Again,Dr. Griffin will NOT earn currency for Week 3.  So we’re looking at God, Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Grampa, Maggie, Nelson, Milhouse, and the New Premium Character for Week 3…

You’ll also need Zia and Kang free for the initial questline objective…

There will also be one new premium character combo introduced during week 3, and that character will be able to help with the currency earning for week 3.  (150 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase the combo)

THOH XXX Week 2 Starts Tomorrow

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow morning, Wednesday, October 30th, Week 2 (Act 2) of THOH XXX will be starting.  The official start time is 10am ET.

While the Week 1 questline won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Week 2 starts, all of the Week 1 Premium items will be leaving the store.

So if you planned to purchase the Monkey’s Paw Salesman or Gil’s God Deal,  do so before they leave our games tomorrow morning. (SIBs Linked)

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Week 2 to start…

During Week 2 Zia convinces Count Dracula to help Kang and Kodos with their world domination plan.  Of course, you’ll have to follow along with the dialogue to find out what happens, but the same characters used for Act 1 currency tasks should be used for the Act 2 currency tasks, with the exception of the Monkey’s Paw Salesman. (I don’t trust the list EA sent us, as it was completely wrong for Week 1) Again, the Monkey’s Paw Salesman will NOT earn currency for Week 2.  So we’re looking at: God, Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, Grampa, Maggie, Nelson, Milhouse, and the New Premium Character for Week 2…

You’ll also need Zia and Kang free for the initial questline objective…

There will also be one new premium character combo introduced during week 2, and that character will be able to help with the currency earning for week 2.  (150 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase the combo)

Well, we’ve reached the end of the marathon and we can see the finish line in sight!  The 2017 THOH/Magical Event ends tomorrow…Tuesday Nov. 14th…and I’m sure most of you (no matter your opinion of the event) are ready to see it go!  Bring on what’s next!

THOH XXVIII Prize Guide: Act 3, Prize 7 Count Dracula

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Fall has arrived and there’s a haze over our Springfield’s, that can only mean one thing….it’s Halloween in our pocket-sized towns! This year EA’s thrown a little magic into the mix, with an Angelica Button theme invading our towns. We’ve got beasts to battle, creatures to capture, wizards to wand wave and goblin gold to gather! Quite a few alliteration altercations huh?

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts, with each Acts containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act.  Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the third act, you’re tasked with collecting Toad Princes () to unlock each prize!

The seventh (and final) act 3 Prize awarded at 31,200 is Count Dracula, because why not throw in a character that makes no sense with the rest of this update as the final prize…

So let’s take a closer look at this seventh prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…
