Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s time for a little Magical Halloween to invade Springfield!  With this all new magical event a few returning items magically returned to our stores…just asking us to drop our sprinkles.

Wondering if you should add the Light-Up Elder God or Pumpkin House 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…

Halloween Magic Act 2…Free Donuts!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in with something real quick.  Once again EA has made it even easier to earn free donuts for Act 2 of this event!

Just Act 1, EA’s done something a little different (and in my opinion BETTER) for Halloween Act 2….you can now earn bonuts BEFORE you’ve completed the prize track! In this case, once you’ve completed the main questline,  you’ll see the bonus round popup:

So for every 10,000  you collect after finishing the questline, you’ll have a chance for 1, 2 or 3 donuts!

BTW….Can you Spot EA’s Typo? 

This is great because now if you, for some reason, don’t make it to the final prize on the Act 2 prize track you can still earn free donuts!  And you’ll earn free donuts just for getting to the final prize.  You’ll earn at least 1 round of bonuts before you get to the end! (well depending on how fast you finish the questline, but it’s pretty short…so shouldn’t take too long)

Remember, to trigger the bonus round you’ll need to complete the Act 2 questline.  Turbo Tapping version can be found here.

Pretty sweet change in my opinion!  No tricks here, this is definitely a treat this Halloween!

Halloween Magic…Free Donuts!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in with something real quick.  Once again EA has made it even easier to earn free donuts during this event!

Just like Homerpalooza, EA’s done something a little different (and in my opinion BETTER) for Halloween….you can now earn bonuts BEFORE you’ve completed the prize track! In this case, once you’ve completed the main questline, Update: You may have to finish the Bart/Lisa Wizard side quest to see it. Also listed in the TT post linked you’ll see the bonus round popup:

So for every 5,000  you collect after finishing the questline, you’ll have a chance for 1, 2 or 3 donuts!

This is great because now if you, for some reason, don’t make it to the final prize on the Act 1 prize track you can still earn free donuts!  And you’ll earn free donuts just for getting to the final prize.  You’ll earn at least 1 round of bonuts before you get to the end!

Remember, to trigger the bonus round you’ll need to complete the Act 1 questline.  Turbo Tapping version can be found here.

Pretty sweet change in my opinion!  No tricks here, this is definitely a treat this Halloween!

Squeaky Voiced Teen Offer

Update: Ok so there are some bugs with this.  Some of you are reporting you’ve purchased Shelbyville, but you still don’t see this offer.  In fact the Stack of Donuts option is completely missing from your store.
And some of you are reporting you didn’t purchase shelbyville but you have this offer as well.
And some of you are reporting you didn’t purchase shelbyville, but you don’t have this offer available. (like my example below)

I did a little checking.  I THINK the issue is with iOS.  The offer appears on my Android phone, in both my A and B games (A game I had Shelbyville, B game I did not).  If you’re having the issue, and you’re on iOS let me know and contact EA.
If you’re having the issues and you’re on Android, let me know this theory is wrong lol.

Update: For those asking, the only thing I see Peasant SVT doing for the event, is he earns Goblin Gold (crafting currency) with his 8hr task. 24 Goblin Gold/8hrs.  But yes, a full breakdown/SIB post will be up on him…

And Another Thing… Some of you outside of the US are commenting about the cost of donuts in my game, and how it’s way cheaper than the cost in your games.  We’ve been seeing this for 3 years.  The price you see below in MY game (and i’m located in the US) is the price EA gets for the donuts.  They haven’t raised their prices in 5 years.  They’re exactly the same.  It’s not EA.

It’s Apple/Google. I know everyone wants to blame EA, but it’s not them. EA gets what you see listed per transaction. Anything over that in your game is taxes/fees/conversion charged by Apple/Google. (It’s like this in other games too….)

This post is a little older, since then Google has made the changes as well (and more countries are impacted), but here’s some quick details:

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Many of you are seeing this in your games this morning….

And when you tap ok it takes you to the XP Collider Recharge Page…

And you’re wondering just WTH is going on?!  WHERE IS SVT AND YOUR BONUTS?!  WHERE, EA?! WHERE!!!

Ok clam down. I’m going to tell you something and I don’t want you to get upset. So take a breather.  Sit down, relax.  Take a load off.

You good?  Ok. Here we go. Continue reading

Halloween Is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Update 8:50p ET: Looks like this is fixed now…at least the not being able to progress.  New update downloads and you’ll get Wizard Lisa and Bart, and that will allow you to complete the beast task…

I’m now working on updating this post, since I can now move through. So keep checking back, I’ll be updating more info below…

Update: So apparently I’ve missed a few bugs…I can also tell you EA sent out a patch to Android (or something), as I just got a massive in-game download.  BUT now I have the crazy zoomed out bug that was going around for other devices (I have a Galazy S8).  So not quite sure what’s going on….

Some are reporting problems with iOS as well.  It’s not loading.  However, i currently have no issues on iOS.

So yes, apparently the bug is still there…for both iOS AND Android.  It gets stuck here:

And you can’t progress.  For those who don’t already know, yes it’s widespread. And yes they’re working on a patch.

Also there’s a glitch with the Magic Scratch R…don’t buy it right now.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Halloween is currently LIVE on Android, iOS and Kindle!  I’m on my way out the door to pick up the Tiny Addict, but i’ll update this post more when I get home.

For now know that Lisa needs to be free for a 6s task.  You’ll then need to place the Chamers Market (free) and complete 6s tasks for Springfielders and Homer. Then ANOTHER 6s task for Homer, and another for Lisa.  You’ll then have to build the Magic Academy (also free) and complete ANOTHER 6s task for Homer. And then you’ll FINALLY launch the event….

I’ll be back with way more once I get home and situated.  For now, have fun guys! More info below the fold…
