Friday Filler – EA Confidential – Finding Bob Part II

Thank Grog It’s Firday,

So…let’s start by getting some of your concerns out of the way.

First- me flying back to NJ had nothing to do with a “family gathering for the holidays.”  I flew after the holidays…in a half-filled plane…with more layers of PPE than the average operating room staff wears in the critical care unit at a hospital. We have two nurses in our family. One is an ER nurse in the Covid unit at a VA hospital…and they made sure I was safe as I could be. And, I was.

Second- because I am being careful (very careful) not to expose or harm “Bob,” in this revelatory story, you don’t have to worry. EA won’t suddenly pull some shennanigans in regards to his employment, or altering the game.  It’s too late for that. The damage has been done. But, as you will see, the damage has also been corrected about as much as could possibly be done.  So, Chillax.

But, I had to know…and as it turns out…I’m glad to know, what I know now.

And, when I am done with telling the story, you’ll feel the same way. Or not.

Game of Games the Sequel Prize Guide: Act 4, Prizes 3 and 5, Crowd of Cosplayers and Frinkiac 7

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well my friends, we’ve reached the end of the Game of Games prize posts.  These last 4 prizes are all we have left to cover and we can finally put GOG2 to bed!  Woohoo!

I know prize posts aren’t the most exciting in the world, but as I always say it’s still important to break these down.  Helps with various questions and, if nothing else, I can point to this post 6 months from now when they reappear in a mystery box.

Act 4 contains 2 costumes and 2 prizes (and one stinking Mystery Box Token).  So for this act we’ll (well me really) be breaking down the outfits and prizes in separate posts.  And this post will cover the prizes of Act 4, Crowd of Cosplayers and the Frinkiac 7…

Game of Games The Sequel Act 4 in Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Who’s ready for the exciting conclusion of Game of Games The Sequel? 🙋‍♀️

Remember, this is the FINAL ACT of this event.  So you have until July 16th to finish this, and all the other Acts. 

Things kick off for Act 4 with some dialogue between Wall E Weasel and the Evergreen Terrors…

Wall E Weasel: Welcome to Wall E. Weasel, where all your pizza and skee-ball dreams come true. Can I interest you in our Pizza Popper Party Platter?
CBG: I’ll take five of those. Kids, what about you?
Bart: Wall E, my man, I’m gonna need a sample of your Pepperoni Pleasure, your Chicago Chicanery, and your Super Scrumptious Sausage Supreme.
Martin: And what is the soup du jour? Perhaps a savory mulligatawny?
Wall E Weasel: We don’t do samples and we only have pizza and garlic bread. And the garlic bread isn’t made with real garlic. Or real bread.
Bart: *phone chirps an alert* It’s a notification from the Earthland Realms online server. There’s a new player at the top of the leaderboards!
Sophie: *gasp* It couldn’t be.
Milhouse: The Game Master!
Wall E Weasel: … So…we wanting to start with some sodas, or just waste more of my precious time?

This triggers the Act 4  questline, To the Ends of the Earth, and is followed by a 1hr task for the Terrors and CBG, as well as a task to collect Act 4 Currency (125).  A Fat Lot of Good 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 4…

Friday Filler – EA Confidential – I Find Bob


Thank Grog It’s Firday…

This has been a week to remember. In between dealing with getting my wife’s Dad hospice care, shuffling flight tickets for our trip back East, forgetting my computer, which forced me to do the Filler on my phone, and finding Bob, it has been one of those weeks I’ll likely remember for some time.

The “forgetting my computer” explains why I had to recycle an old graphic from one of my old posts about another mystery…Chester Dupree.  But like I said, it has been one of those weeks. You make due…with what you have…and roll with the punches. Mysteries solved, often require adaptation.

As I prepare for another week of total unknowns, I know that adapting and altering plans is simply going to be the “new normal.” Right now, nothing is normal. In these times you just have to roll with the punches. Like Bob. He rolls with the punches. But, of course, I didn’t know that…until I found him.  Which I did.

As it turns out, things with Bob are the kind of “weird” that makes a word like “weird” seem normal.  And, what’s with that word anyway?? It’s supposed to be “I before E, except after C” in the English language.  Except, apparently, when it isn’t…like with weird.   Which is weird. But, I digress…

On to Bob.
