Turbo Tappin’ Premium Time Travel Toaster: Pharaoh Skinner

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Homer has traveled back to the Egyptian days…when the Sphinx were built, pyramids were constructed, Papyri was all the rage & Artie Ziff’s ancestor was an almighty Pharaoh!

This event, as all events do, has introduced a few new premium characters to the mix, and naturally the new premium characters come equipped with their own questlines to work your way through.  So let’s take a look at the premium character to hit our game during this Era, Pharaoh Skinner and the Turbo Tappin’ version of his questline…

Results and Opinions on the TTT Prehistoric Poll

I have been warned by Mom (Alissa) not to write the kind of post that I would have written as CrankyOldGuy on my old site. I think that goes without saying, as I am a far LESS cranky guy these days, after several months of being here at Addicts.

That said, I think you will get my general impression as far as what I think about the way things went during the Prehistoric (Post-Hysterical?) Act I of the Time Travel Toaster event that EA unfurled.

The response to the poll was huge…as in FAR larger than most of the polls done by news agencies during the political season. More than 4,000 players responded!  This can certainly be considered “empirical data”  to which EA should certainly take a serious look (especially if they want to keep players happy, and playing). The results are fairly self-evident…with only a few minor surprises and anomalies.

TTT-Egyptian Era Calendar

Well…I feel partly responsible for the fact that lots of people didn’t complete the last era.  I assumed that if you logged on every 4 hours, 3-4 times a day, you’d get it all. But, you know that they say about the word, “Assume” right?  (Makes and Ass-out of U and Me). But, then again, even I didn’t finish in time (was still 12K off when it flipped), so I was one of the “victims” of Freemium Players who didn’t “get it all” and am wondering if we will be able to get everything this “era.”

So far…so good…I’m on track so far after a day. BUT, let’s not forget that EA changed the payouts in the middle of the Era (bastids!)…so who knows?  All we can do is try...right?

Let’s see what we have to do to keep up…

Turbo Tappin’ Time Travel Toaster: Egyptian Era (Act 2)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Grab your dancing shoes on because it’s time to Walk Like an Egyptian through time as the Time Travel Toaster has flashed us into the  Egyptian Era. That’s right for this second “Act” Homer will travel back to the days of Pharaoh and Ra…when Pharaoh’s drove the work force and sun worshipers go blind!

As was mentioned on the rundown post the Egyptian Era runs until June 23rd, and you’ll need Homer and some Springfielders to get things started.

Remember, the questline is there to guide you.  So when you get stuck on something, or haven’t unlocked something, just follow along with the questline and it’ll take you through everything you need to do to complete the first part and unlock everything you need in order to play properly.

And don’t forget the Questline will help you get some bonus prize currency…so make sure you complete it to earn that extra currency…

Let’s take a look at the quick walkthrough for the second round of the Time Travel Event, as we go back to the days of Ra and as an added bonus we’ll figure out why Homer’s so yellow and what the heck happened to The Time Travelers Wife Pt 1….

Walk Like an Egyptian..TTT Egpyt Era Is Live!

Update: I know some of you had questions about Willie and Skinner…BOTH the final prize of this act (Taskmaster Willie) and the premium Pharaoh Skinner are costume/skins NOT full new characters (like Caveman Moe was).  So yes…EA wants you to pay 150 donuts for a skin…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Hope you’ve got your dancing shoes on because it’s time to Walk Like an Egyptian through time as the Time Travel Toaster has flashed us into the  Egyptian Era…
