Last Chance Electricity

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in with a quick reminder that the episode tie-in is set to leave tomorrow morning (3am EST, 0800 GMT) and with it will go your chance to buy Willie’s Electricity Wheel (and get Slave Labor Willie) and the Electric Cars.

So if you’re thinking about making the purchase make sure you do it soon…before they leave Springfield forever!

So what’s going to happen when the Elon Musk Episode Tie-In leaves?  Well no one quite knows yet…but I will say this.  Don’t send any regular characters on long 24hr quests tonight.  If you send them on long tasks make sure they’ll be free around 9am EST (1400 GMT), as that’s usually when updates hit (if one is hitting)…if it’s an in-game update.  If it’s an app store update (like Valentine’s Day) it usually hits around 1-2pm EST.

What are your final thoughts on the Episode Tie-In?  Did you purchase the Electric Cars?  Where have you placed them in your Springfield?  Do you think something will hit tomorrow?  If so, what?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Episode Reminder: The Musk Who Fell to Earth

Oh my goodness… it’s been a while two weeks since a new episode of The Simpsons aired but have no fear… Wookiee’s here.  Of course I have nothing to do with it but I figured I should remind all my favorite addicts about the new episode this Sunday, 25 January 2015, on FOX.  This one is entitled “The Musk Who Fell to Earth”. Of course, the current episode tie-in probably also clued you in but here’s the official synopsis from TV Guide:

“When inventor Elon Musk (voiced by himself) arrives in Springfield and befriends Homer, the two revolutionize the nuclear plant. But the ambitious Musk soon has Mr. Burns seething and Burns tries to have him removed, forcing Homer to make a tough decision.”
