Game of Games is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Game of Games Event Ends TOMORROW July 10th.

As far as questlines go, what’s happened in the past is that the current prize you’re working on (on any questline) you were able to finish.  Once that current prize was completed then the questline disappeared.  

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.

Should I Spend Donuts On the 2019 Returning 4th of July Content?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In the middle, well really towards the end, of Game of Games we get a blast from Independence Days past! As returning 4th of July content has been introduced with week 4 of Game of Games.  Of course, this is basically just an excuse for EA to stock our stores with returning premium content, 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.

Wondering if you should add any if the 4th of July returning content  to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

No, Gil isn’t in Springfield.  I just like this image for the 4th of July items…

Game of Games Week 4 is About to Start

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow morning, Wednesday, July 3rd, Week 4 (Act 4) of Game of Games will be starting.  The official start time is 10am ET (1400 GMT).

While the Week 3 (or weeks 1 or 2 for that matter) 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 4 starts, all of the Week 3 Premium items will be leaving the store.

So if you planned to purchase Mr. Dirt or any of the returning Premium Content, (SIBs linked) do so before they leave our games tomorrow morning.

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

During Week 4 Homer FINALLY secures the E4 Passes, only to discover the kids already found their own way in.  And of course, The Evergreen Terrors compete in the final round of the gaming tournament…while still battling Report Card. (who seems hell-bent on destroying Bart)  You’ll have to follow along with the dialogue to find out what happens, but here are the characters needed for week 4 tasks:

Homer
Lisa
Bart
Milhouse
Martin
Nelson
Apu
Cletus
Sophie Krustofsky (earns regular premium)
New Premium Character Week 4 (Earns Special Premium)

You’ll also need Homer and Marge free for the initial questline objective…

There will also be one new premium stand-alone Character (at least according to the files it’s a character) introduced during week 4, and that character will be able to help with the currency earning for week 4.  (75 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase the character)

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 where the story goes?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Friday Filler – What’s A Little Earworm Among Friends?

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

As many of you have pointed out, one of the nicest surprises with this Event is the “new music” that plays in the background. I put “new music” in quotations for a reason…mainly because it isn’t new...just new to us.

What?? You play with your sound turned off?  Then you are missing one of the best features of the event.

I agree that sound can get crazy when grinding every 4 hours, and my wife would be the first to scream, “can you please turn the sound off?” as she is trying to sleep through one of my 10:30pm grindfests.

But, this music serves a purpose beyond entertainment. It is a little earworm of a tune that runs with a time signature and running time that is perfect for tagging, or just keeping track of how long you are tapping.

And most important, if you let it become a true earworm, it can be a bit of a soundtrack for the rest of your life!

But, who wrote it???
