Springfield Jobs Act 2 is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that Act 2 of the Springfield Jobs Event…Ends MONDAY April 23rd at 1400 GMT (10am ET). (I’ll remind you again during Sunday’s Open Thread)

Also an IMPORTANT REMINDER…Starting tomorrow (Saturday) save your Daily Challenges (you can complete them, just don’t claim them), so that on Monday when Act 3 hits you’ll be ahead of the game.

Once the Act 2 is over you will no longer be able to earn Crown-Less Jewel Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning Jewels if you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Act starts…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Act.

For a rundown on everything that was included with Act 2 check out our rundown post here.

Be ready for the Act 3 to start at 1400 GMT (10am ET) Monday morning  (April 23rd)….

Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Buckingham Pay-Less Motel or Big Digi-Ben?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Time for Heisting in Springfield!  New event means all new content, and of course loads of returning content! Lots of items to drop those sprinkles on…

Springfield Jobs- Act II Calendar and Math for Getting It All!

See?  I do believe I told you that Act I was do-able…if you stayed on top of it. And it was. Some barely finished, while others, like myself, was done days ago.  And some, got struck sideways by the “RollBack Glitch.”  COME ON EA…Get on it!!

Well…for Act II, there is some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the daily minimums are actually smaller than Act I.  The bad news, is that this is because the act is spread across an even LONGER period of time.

How long?  How does 17.5 days strike you?  Well…for me, it strikes me like a steak and kidney pie in the face…good and bad. I am a bit of an Anglophile, so I am looking forward to all of the stuff from “Jolly Old England.” I have saved up a ton of crafting currency, and stockpiled donuts…so I am READY!

Let’s take a look at the numbers, and what you can win by hitting the targets!

Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Hugs Bunny, Shary Bobbins, Egg Council Guy or Easter Trees?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In the midst of all the Heisting, Jesus has come back to Springfield to remind us that it is, in fact, the Easter Season.  That’s right, with Easter 3 days away it’s time to get a little holy (just a little…it is Springfield after all) with several returning Easter-ish themed items in our stores.

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

There are a total of 7 returning items, either from Easters past or just something to remind you of the resurrection.  I’m going to break these up into 2 different returning posts because, well, it’s a lot of content and let’s face it..it’s still lent we all should be punished a little bit..

Anywho, for this second of two posts, I’m going to tackle the Stand-Alone portion of the returning content…as in Stand-Alone Characters and trees…because when you’re a pink fluffy tree it’s likely you’ll always stand alone.

Free Donuts with Easter Content

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in with something many of you may not have noticed (I know I didn’t).  Thanks to a couple of astute readers for pointing it out…EA is giving you 10 Free Donuts with the Ressurection of the Rigellian Christ content (i.e. the returning Easter Content)!

You’ll see this popup appear when you log into your game….

But it’s so ambiguous (and we’re so programmed to see these popups appear whenever there is new content in the store), many of you (myself included) may not have even noticed the free donuts.  But hey free donuts are free donuts, and 10 free donuts are great!  So I wanted to point it out to you…just in case you missed it!

And hey EA, a little note….when you give players free donuts it’s a good thing.  Make it really well known so they don’t miss it! (and say how many your giving)  They’ll like you better for it, I promise!

Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning J. Rigellian Christ, Jesus Christ or Easter Island God?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Anywho, for this first post, I’m going to tackle the God portion of the returning content…as in Easter Island and the son of (and Alien Son of)…
