Northward Bound Full Dialogue: A Fail of Two Cities and Brave New World

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy December!  You know what that means?  Christmas is starting now… Although before we can talk Christmas, we need to wrap up the Northward Bound mini-event.  So…

We’re in the final few hours of the Northward Bound mini-event, and now that it’s nearly over it’s time to take a look back at all the fun dialogue from this mini-event…just in case you missed it by tapping too fast!

So here’s a look back at the full dialogue for the main questlines of the Northward Bound mini-event…

Next Update in TSTO?! Mini-Event SPOILERS!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well in yet another surprising twist…EA has sent us a spoiler packet for the next MINI-EVENT in TSTO.  That…never happens.  But they’re REALLY excited about this one, and honestly after looking through the packet, I can see why!  This looks like it could be the mini-event of the year, for sure, and possibly the best mini-event since…well, ever.  We shall see.

Anyway, they literally sent us the spoiler packet about 30 minutes ago and then gave us the greenlight to share the spoilers with you guys. (of course it took me a little bit of time to write this up)  So, unfortunately, no time for a spoiler video (given that I’m at work, and Safi is traveling)…BUT I’m still able to do a spoiler post.

For those who just want a couple of basics, without getting all of the spoilers…here are those basics:

-This is a mini-event.  From what the packet says, it’ll start on November 17th at 9am ET.  (1400 UTC)  Note the 2 hour earlier start time.
-Because it’s a mini-event it’ll run for 2 weeks, and it ends December 1st.  (also at 9am ET, 1400 UTC)
-Standard mini-event.  1 prize track, 1 premium character combo (150 donuts for the combo)
-You’ll need to be at or above Level 15 for this to trigger.
-Characters needed are: Homer, Bart, Lisa, Marge, Grampa, Wiggum, Moe, Quimby, and new Premium character with the event.  (that’s just to earn currency.  I don’t have details on questline just yet)
-There will be a Black Friday special.  Similar to last year it’ll be a prize track where you need to purchase donuts (with real life cash) to unlock special NEW prizes.
-There will be a Gold Mystery Box, with returning items in it.  However, it looks like you can only get the tokens for it via the Black Friday Track.  This will be something we’ll have to look into once the files hit.
-At the moment, I don’t know if the other (traditional/returning content) Black Friday Mystery Boxes will be returning.
-There will be NEW LAND with this mini-event
-There will also be an item limit expansion (by 1,000) with this mini-event.  New total will be 15,000.
-And finally, there is a “twist” element to this event.  Where you’ll need to do something to complete something else.  So for those looking for something more to do then just tap…it’s coming with this mini-event.

Now, here’s your official warning….SPOILERS AHEAD!  If you don’t want to know, don’t click below…

Incoming Update: All This Jazz

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just letting you know there IS an update on the server (so look for an App Store download later today) for the next mini-event in TSTO.  This one is called All This Jazz and will run for two weeks.

Update: The update is available for download. There seems to be an issue with iOS however,  it seems to be crashing with the update.  Some folks have reported uninstall and reinstall helped,  others said restarting their device has helped. Personally, I’m on Android so I’m not of much help….

Starts tomorrow, September 23rd, and runs until Wednesday, October 7th.  Standard 2 week mini-event.

What does this mean for Halloween?  Well either Halloween is going to start as soon as this mini-event ends, on the 7th, or it’ll start a week later. (although a week later, the 14th, feels really late)  As I’ve been saying for a while now…it’s EA.  It’s anyone’s guess as to what they’re going to do these days.

All we can control is the present moment in the game, and the present moment says we’ll be getting an update tomorrow.  So look for All This Jazz to start off tomorrow morning at 11am ET.

-Alissa

P.S. If we get an app store update prior to tomorrow, I’ll update this post with that info and some screenshots from in-game.

Here’s a look at the incoming characters

Turbo Tappin’ Summer Games 2020: Main Questline and Prizes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, I’m finally getting a chance to sit down on my computer and write up the Turbo Tappin’ for the Summer Games mini-event.  Sorry this is so late!  Friday drops, followed by long weekends, and chaos at work on Monday is never a good mix for me.  Anyway, despite the surprise drop date it’s always nice to have new content from TSTO!   The Summer Games 2020 event is a nice distraction from the world…kinda.

Of course, as with all events, a questline comes with it to help move us through the ins and outs of the event…and unlock all of the prizes.  As was mentioned on the rundown post this mini-event is similar to the previous mini-events, in that you’ve got to complete various tasks to unlock the prizes.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just how to unlock all of the prizes…

New Update: Summer Games 2020 Mini-Event Rundown

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

First of all, thank you Safi for getting a basic event rundown post up for me!  Really appreciate the help!  Guys, like I said yesterday…work is CRAZY for me right now.  Trying to balance it all has been….interesting.  So grateful to have Safi back me up!

Anywho, who had mini-event release on Friday for the win?   It is 2020.  The year where nothing seems to make sense.  And it’s peek 2020 that EA would release a mini-event on a Friday afternoon.  Especially one that, according to the game files, was supposed to be released on Wednesday.  That’s 2020 for you…

So to get started on this mini-event you’ll need to download the update in the app store.  This update will remove the Game of Games 2 Splash Screen from your game, and bring in the Summer Games 2020 files.

Basement, eh… 🤔

Once you’ve downloaded the newest update you should see the dialogue launch right up for this mini-event.  (Quimby kicks off the dialogue)

Note: You will need to be, at least, on Level 15 for this to start.

What’s included with this event?  Let’s take a look….

Note: You’ll need Mayor Quimby free for an hour to kick this off

Summer Games 2020 Mini-Event Ends August 5th
