THOH XXXI: Turbo Tappin’ Act 2 Hell is Other Students

Sorry this is up a little late guys.  I had hoped to get this up early this morning, but that just didn’t work out.  Wanted to get this TT questline out for y’all today so you didn’t have to wait until Monday, but normally Saturdays are reserved for non-gameplay posts.  So consider this an exception to that rule…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s everyone’s (well almost everyone’s) favorite time in TSTO, the annual Treehouse of Horror Event!  Yes, Halloween in Springfield has always been big deal in TSTO and this year is no exception! Also 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…

The 2020 THOH 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 (10 days) and taking us through a new part of the event!

For Act 2 we’re tasked with collecting Cursed Scrolls!  Each part of the story will unlock another prize themed for the second part of the story.  So let’s take a look at the details behind Act 2 and the Turbo Tappin’ Version for Hell is Other Students…

THOH XXXI Act 2 in Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Who’s ready for more Devilish fun?  Act 2 of the THOH XXXI Event has arrived!

Full disclosure guys…I’ve written this a day in advance of Act 2 hitting.  I’m relying on EA’s info and the info in the files to put this together (instead of verifying in-game).  I’m away today with a family situation, so I’m not able to check directly.  If there are any discrepancies I’ll try to clear them up later on. Thanks!

Remember, this Act will still be playable until the event ends on November 18th.  However, Act 3 will start on November 1st (note the Sunday start date). 

Things kick off for Act 2 with some dialogue between the kids of Hell and Lisa…

Lisafer: Hellementary School is still school, just with fires, molten lava, and boiling steam.
Hell Kids Crowd: Get a load of the new kid with her fresh–faced, just outta-the-hell-portal attitude!
Lisafer: Relax guys! I’m here to NOT do any work. School is SOOO lame, right?!
Hell Kids Crowd: Oh great. Another one of those too-cool-for-Hell-School types!

This triggers the Act 2  questline, Hell is Other Students, and is followed by a 2hr task for Lisa, as well as a task to collect Act 2 Currency (150).  Hell is Other Students 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 2…

Friday Filler – Is The Anticipation Better Than The Actuality?

Thank Grog It’s Firday!!

Yes…it has continued to be one of those weeks/months/years that just keeps piling on the fun. But, I won’t take up more space here to talk about all of the family challenges in our neck of the woods. Especially, when we have a new update, and those woods are scary!

Well…maybe not as scary as many hoped for…but, at least it’s “hellish?”

And that’s really kind of what life has become at this point. Anticipating something great…counting down the days and hours…only to be disappointed in the outcome. And, let’s be honest about it. Almost everything that is highly anticipated leaves someone feeling disappointed.

But for me, there was one surprise that I have been begging for over the course of more than 18 months. Yes…those that know me, know that I am patient when it comes to begging. And, there are a few things that I have been hoping to come true, even longer than 18 months. But, my desire to be the nation’s first WWI Fighter Ace/Cowboy/Astronaut becomes more and more distant with each passing year.

However, I’m not going to complain. Because EA…in their infinite wisdom…FINALLY INCREASED THE HARD ITEM LIMITS!!!!!

Wondering if you should add Old Scratch and Flanders’ Personal Hell to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this hellish combo to your town…

Friday Filler – When is Enough, Really Enough, and When Is It Just Hoarding?

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Well…as you may or may not remember,  a year ago I started a massive remodel of our house, with almost top to bottom remaking of the kitchen, two bathrooms, and flooring throughout the entire first floor main living area (family room, kitchen, bathroom, dining room, living room, stairs).

I have done all of the work myself…and with everything that has gone on during that year, find myself a bit awe-struck that I am not actually done yet (I still have an entire back deck tear apart and rebuild). But, then again, as I have also found out, once you start remodeling, and your wife is the primary “contractor” and you are “the worker,” you are never really done. All of the new, makes any of the old look shabby by comparison. And, even worse, that damn HGTV channel is still on the air, giving “the contractor” more ideas.

But, absolutely the worst part…is the massive land fill that now must be hauled off in a dumpster, along with decisions on what to do with the rest.  Clutter…thy name is Patric.  I admit it. I hate to throw away anything.

AND, to the point of this post…WE FACE THE SAME DECISIONS IN TSTO.  “Keep…store…or sell.”

Friday Filler – A New Look at Old Stuff to Recapture My Zazz

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Like many of you, between the Covid-Craziness, more politics than any human should have to endure, civil unrest and a clear letdown in our favorite diversion from all of it (TSTO), I found myself trying to find new ways to make the old ways feel new again.

This is common with the modern version of humankind.  We seem driven to be discontented with “the status quo” and are in a seemingly constant state of “the next best thing.”  Unfortunately, this constant game of “wanting more, but enjoying it less,” has brought us to a point in our existence where more really is less.  Less fulfilling, less gratifying, and far less hopeful.  And yes…I am talking about the game this time.

But, as I talked about in my last Filler, I have decided to “go back a few clicks” to a more simple time, when I wasn’t obsessed with Bonus %, and could actually slow down enough to design my town, in spite of the Item Limits.

Here are my first baby steps to reclaiming my “Zazz.”
