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.

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

New Update: Summer Games (200th Update for Tapped Out)!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, it’s Friday afternoon and Alissa is busy at work,…so of course EA is going to choose now to drop the new mini-event update!  Yes, an all-new mini-event has hit our games, so let’s check out what’s in store for us this time…

It’s almost time for the 2020 Summer Olympics, so why not have a Summer Olympic Event!  Remember to download the app store update if you haven’t already done so.  You won’t see this mini-event until you’ve downloaded the update.  And if you don’t see the update available try these steps:  Hard close your App store, clear your cache, restart your device.  When it reboots, open your app store and search Tapped Out.

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

The event starts with some funny dialogue from Mayor Quimby, Miss Springfield, and Kent Brockman discussing the postponement of the 2020 Summer Olympics.

Note: You’ll need Mayor Quimby free for a one hour task to kick things off.
