Simpsons Tapped Out: Season 25 Tie-In

This entry is part 5 of 12 in the series Simpsons Tapped Out - General

LIMITED TIME EVENT9/26/13 to 10/1/13

This series ties into the Season 25 Premiere of the Simpsons. My guess is that it will end before the scheduled Halloween event on 10/1 but there is no official word yet. It’s a short quest line so no worries on finishing it in time.

Lisa: Wow, Dad. What are you doing up so early?
Homer: Getting ready for work.
Lisa: But you rarely ever go to work. At least not on time. Or with — what’s that thing on your face — a smile?
Homer: Yep. I’m smiling because for two glorious days and one even more glorious night, work isn’t actually going to work. It’s going to be a convention!
Lisa: What’s so great about that? What happens at a convention?
Homer: Uh… nothing. Just work. It’s really boring.
Homer: Now where’s that inflatable gorilla wearing women’s underwear that I ordered?

Homer: Good idea. I’ll start with my convention supplies. Ball-point pens, notepads, business cards…
Lisa: Okay, Dad. I’ll leave you to it.
Homer: Great. See you later, sweetie!
Homer: Now to dump this crap and put in my real conventions supplies. Champagne, animal tranquilizers, superhero costume…

Conventional Wisdom Pt. 2
Make Homer Pack for the Convention – 4h, 175c, 45xp


Homer: Well, I’m all packed up.
Lisa: Four bags?! You’re only away from a night. How much clothing do you need?
Homer: Oh, right … clothing. I should pack some of that as well.

Simpsons Tapped Out: Pre-Halloween, Pre-Season Premiere

This entry is part 4 of 12 in the series Simpsons Tapped Out - General


Quick update to get ready for the Halloween event and the new Season Tie-In. 9/23/13.

Homer: Oh no! It’s almost the start of October… which due to the scheduling of baseball games on FOX, is when Halloween comes to Springfield!

Lisa: *sigh* I wish we could have it at the end of the month like normal people.

Homer: I just want it to be over. It’s always so scary, with the aliens and movie parodies and main characters dying. All the rules are off!

Lisa: That’s because it’s non-canonical, Dad. Dying doesn’t count.

Homer: I know, but it still hurts. And this year I want to be prepared. Can you find out what’s going to be happening here this year?

Lisa: Hmm, maybe. Let me check online.

Each mission in the game has various requirements for getting 100% completion and they don’t tell you what these requirements are until after you’ve finished them for the first time. Luckily we will show you the requirements here to help you out since we are nice like that.
