I'm getting closer. The Simpsons is the last game. I skipped this event, and I'm now just sending everyone in 24 hr tasks. I don't even login some days.

I think I want to level up to the max, use all my donuts... and maybe I'm done.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Yeah I still play. It's not very time consuming anymore. I can usually log in for a few minutes at a time and complete the events. The one thing I noticed with this event is that there weren't any storylines for some of the characters that you unlock. I don't ever recall that happening in the past. There's usually at least one task to do and a little dialogue.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Damnit, I missed out on Maggie because the wife started talking to me right after I began, and I didn't want to shush her.

Yeah, there were quests for the ones earned at the ends of the acts, I think, but not for others, and the villains, though cool, are just NPCs.

I have eight quests stacked up for when the event ends, but I think they're all for premium characters I purchased and set on intel tasks.

I've turned off the game during the Maggie hunt and saves the time by asking if I really wanted to quit the Maggie search. I think it has happened twice now and I can come back to the search later.

I think I hit that once by accident but backed out of it. I guess I should've tried it rather than trying to power through while listening to the conversation and getting annoyed.

Pushes aside cobwebs. Kicks moldering bones.

The Darwin Fish will continue to give tachyons every time it is placed. Store it. Replace it. Repeat until you have a maxed out Panini Press. Or until you get bored with popping him in and out of storage.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Haven't earned the fish yet, but good to know when I do.

I bit on the rebate offers for Malibu Stacy and (another) knighboat, and I got Booberella to help with the event. I'm going to have to run the XP collider to refill m donuts.

I won the fish and it seems that the update from earlier today killed the glitch.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I earned the last excavation site prize with a few days to spare. I did the same thing for act 1 and sat on shovels, earning the last few other prizes just by tapping guys, but now I'm going to hit capacity so I'll continue to use a few shovels per day.

I got Cave Girl Booberella to help with the event, but not Gravedigger Billy or Pharaoh Skinner. I've also bought some of the flashback items.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Here's a tip!

Many of us already know you can go way over capacity on in-game job resource currencies if you time your taps right. Metal, glass, and plastic recycling, yoga mats, lattes, etc. Even then, there's only so far you can go. But there's one currency you can go way over the max capacity on indefinitely: trash in the Springfield Dump. Here's what you do:
1. After you earn your five donuts for the week, maximize your metal, glass, and plastic currency.
2. Get your trash as close to 2000 as possible. You can usually do at least 1950 or even 1975 if you have a premium character.
3. Send all your trash collectors out. Then, go to the PolyVac and battle robots in the SciFighter. It will say you may be at the cap for some resources, play anyway, and you'll get some trash.
4. Tap your collectors for their payout.
5. Use the Surveillance Post from the Spy Event to keep racking up trash resources! When you battle spy agents, you'll win more trash but this minigame has no cap on resources!

You can play the Surveillance Post minigame as often as possible between the time you get your donuts, maximize currency, and start it all over on Tuesday. Since I discovered this, I've racked up 3500+ trash and can send those collectors out on other jobs, which helps the rat race toward five free donuts be less hectic, and take less time, then you can build even more trash currency because you're all set earlier. In theory, if one played enough, I'd suppose it's possible to collect enough trash you wouldn't even have to use it at least one week, you'd have so much banked.

I thought I'd pass along this helpful tip I discovered on my own.

Also, here's another tip at 3:16:

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Yeah, I can store around 4K of trash just by playing those two games. I still need to build more to get through the weekly task, though.

I missed out on the act I final prize and that seems to be the case with act II as well. Ouch.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Sorry, starseed--that sucks. Too bad we can't help each other in so many of these events.

This week I'd stashed 6K of trash, and that lasted me through three rounds of track building.

The pirate bridge can be used as an actual bridge. Across the water. Crazy! What's next? Cars on the streets.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I was bored and leveled up to the max, 939. I had like 75 million in cash, so it was doable with the XP multiplier on. I'm at 8 million now. But with 831 donuts.

what should I get?

I'm probably try to buy all the pending land first. I'm really behind there.

I guess the question is... what do you not have?

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

I got the final prize, Stargazer Stadium, with less than a day to spare. I bought the jazz guy early on then the two guys in the van last week. I probably wouldn't have made it otherwise, especially considering I was out of town and off the grid over the weekend.

I like the event and the fact that we can help each other again (I was trying to dump lawyers on people who were close to 48K), but it takes up a ton of space.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Yeah, I bought the 3 of them at the beginning, so I was able to finish 5 days earlier. Last event I missed on all the last big awards, but I wasn't really paying attention.

Re: The Simpsons: Tapped Out

Bleeding Gums Murphy is such an iconic Simpsons character that even though he was super expensive, he was a must buy for me. I guess the only others ones that I really want are the Phil Hartman characters that we won't see.
