It’s the most magical time of the year! Snow in Springfield! And this year it’s a Christmas Pril! (dun, dun, dun…..) Will our pocket-sized towns survive the holiday snow?! Only time…and 5 weeks of tapping will tell!
Once again we see another multi-event in Springfield. So love them, or hate them, they’re still here. So let’s all try to make the best of this…
Anywho….things kick off with a series of 6s tasks for Homer, Marge, and Grampa…
After you’ve completed the initial task you’ll kick off the Christmas Event!
In our games, the snow is falling and TSTO is calling yoo hoo! It’s the most wonderful time of the year Tappers, Christmas in TSTO!
Act 4 of this event ushered in one new premium character to help navigate this holiday whodunnit. The Nutcracker is an all-new premium character for Springfield, who will not only help earn event currency but also comes with a short questline.
So let’s take a look at the full dialogue questline for the Nutcracker…
In our games, the snow is falling and TSTO is calling yoo hoo! It’s the most wonderful time of the year Tappers, Christmas in TSTO! Of course, an all-new event means all-new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!
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.

Holiday Whodunnit Event follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it. This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting just over a week and taking us through a new part of the event!
For Act 4 we’re tasked with collecting Stockings! Each part of the story will unlock another prize themed for this final part of the story. So let’s take a look at the details behind Act 4 and the Turbo Tappin’ Version for Sleighing It…
In our games, the snow is falling and TSTO is calling yoo hoo! It’s the most wonderful time of the year Tappers, Christmas in TSTO! I just love the look of a fresh blanket of snow covering my pocket-sized town…at least for now. I’ll get sick of it by the time January rolls around…in TSTO and in real life (have I mentioned lately I wanna move to Florida?) Anyway, yes the annual Christmas/holiday event has arrived in Springfield, so what does EA have in store for us? Well, we’ve got a real mystery on our hands! A holiday whodunnit if you will! Poor Santa…
As always, loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up…
Remember, this is the FINAL Act of this event. So you have to finish this, and any others you haven’t yet finished, by the time the event ends on January 12th.
Things kick off for Act 4 with some dialogue where we head back to the Santa Sleigh Race…
Kent Brockman: Hello, I’m Kent Brockman and welcome to the 1st annual “Santa Sleigh Race”! Proudly brought to you by the folks at Gnome-In-The-Home Dome. Mary Tannenbaum: You’re talking into MY camera. Kent Brockman: Dangit, that was a perfect take. Lisa: Look who’s here! Santa Claus: Ho-ho-ho! *sways precariously* Whoa-whoa-whoa! Herb Tannenbaum: Santa! It’s so good to see you up and about! Santa Claus: Herb, I heard you lost a limb in my defense. I couldn’t ask for a better friend. Marge: Santa, you look a little wobbly there. Maybe you should sit back down. Bart: Yeah, me and Homer have got the present-delivering covered, so take a load off. All you need to do is grant a couple crazy Christmas gifts we promised to get for people. Santa Claus: Unlimited gifts cannot be done, Bart. Bart: What about my waterslide into my infinity pool? Santa Claus: It all depends on the requirements of the building code…but consider it done!
This triggers the Act 4 questline, Sleighing Itand is followed by 4hr tasks for Springfielders (x3), Herb Tannenbaum, Santa, and Homer, as well as a task to collect Act 4 Currency (125), and Christmas Trivia. Sleighing It is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.
Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 4…
Some of you had mentioned you’d like a separate reminder post for when the next Act of events will start. So here’s that separate reminder post…
Act 4 of the Holiday Whodunnit Event starts TUESDAY, January 4th, at 9 am ET!
Acts 1-3 of the event won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished it you have plenty of time to do so. But Act 4 will be starting up with its own prize track, questline, and premium character(s)! As a reminder, Act 4 is the FINAL act of this event. So you’ll need to finish everything up by the time Act 4 ends (Jan 12th).
Here’s who you’ll need free to start Act 4:
Springfielders (x3), Herb Tannenbaum, Santa (if you have him), and Homer all have 4hr tasks to start Act 4.
You’ll also need the characters that earn event currency free. As a reminder, they are:
Park Ranger (Premium)
Mary Tannenbaum (Premium)
New Character for Act 4
And finally, 1 new premium combo will hit during Act 4 that will help with the event, As noted above this character will help earn event currency, and you’ll need 150 donuts for that combo should you wish to purchase it.
