    Lol, the Family Guy: Quest for Stuff app just started their own superhero event right now.

    They even have a mini-game where you can send superhero to fight evil thugs too.

    On August 16, Tapped Out is discontinuing service on older phones. From then on, you'll need to have at a minimum iOS 7 or Android 3 to be able to play the game.

    Every time I play this game I really get vexed by the fact that no guest voices (if the members of the “Also Starring” cast are considered guest voices) not named Matt Groening are allowed to voice characters. Particularlybecause almost all female characters are voiced by guest voices (aside from Lisa, Marge, the Bouviers, and a couple others like Britney Brockman and Lisa, Jr). If nothing else, at least get Tress MacNeille because of the sheer amount of characters she voices.
    ah (as in apple)-tuh-eef

    true, but is that going to stay the final prize for the monorail crafting? Because who could possibly want more than 2 of them? Plus that eliminates one of the ways to get free doughnuts

    I forgot about this mini monorail event until there were 2 days left for the first round of prizes, but managed to get the tunnel this weekend. Too bad I don't have enough of Springfield Heights unlocked because of the currency they want. Gotta farm items to unlock land again just for the tunnel to be of real use.

    I, uh, never even got this event started. What was I supposed to do to kick it off?

    Monorail tunnel is great... until you realize that there is a 50/50 chance your entire track is 1 space off from fitting and because there is no one space track piece you are screwed.
    UP AND ATOM!

    can you not move the tunnel over one space?

    also, i see now that the tunnel was only the first prize and now the final prize is back to doughnuts. but...are we going to at least get a second tunnel? i want to have my monorail complete a circle around the town, so what's the point in having it go into SH if it can't come back out?

    On a completely random note, I'm so glad I bought Sherri & Terri. They earn so much money

    You can only move the tunnel left and right (West and East) every however many spaces that it is wide. Also, the issue is the North/South arrangement that can throw the whole thing off by one space.

    So, uh, it looks like the monorail update isn't actually a mini-event, it's a permanent update to the game now, and every week from now you'll get the chance to unlock different prizes, like more monorail tracks and the tunnel into Springfield heights. The real mini-event just started and it's about the Summer Olympics. There's not really that many interesting prizes here, although you can buy Lugash and get a couple of donuts back. That's cool, I guess.

    Anyway, I finally managed to save up enough money to unlock Wise Guy. It's kind of a weird feeling knowing that outside of prizes from events, Wise Guy is the last character I'll be able to buy that isn't a premium character. So I guess from now on, outside of events, the goal is to finish the Homerliayas now.

    I don't feel particularly passionate about the new Olympics event. Instead, I'm focusing on the monorail and finishing Springfield Heights

    Man, I just wanted to work on my monorail. Half the people I need for this Olympics thing are busy doing monorail tasks, blah. I guess Pin Collector Lisa is cute, though. I WOULD like to collect all the pins just to do it but I don't care about Fatov.

    i'm guessing you're relatively new to the game, but the monorail was already an event a couple years ago. i think this was just a way to let people who missed it build a monorail and to introduce the tunnel

    I've just got the Monorail tunnel and as aforementioned, it is problematic to say the least

    fyi, the insanity cauldron is paying out pills again, though not as many as before (it seems to be 5 no matter how many you tap, whereas before i could usually get 8 or 9)

    Well, this was a really easy mini-event. I got all the prizes and managed to unlock Fatov in only a few days. I guess I'll just unlock those monorail prizes and get those donuts while I just kill for time until this mini-event is over. It's nice to just sit back and not have to worry about trying to win a prize for once, I can just sit back and collect donuts from daily challenges and leveling up.

    I am pretty new to the game (only started a few months ago), but I did hear there was a previous monorail event a long time ago, but I hadn't joined by that time.

    Also, the insanity cauldron stops giving pills once you have a total of 200, then it just starts giving you money again.

    well, yeah. 200 is the "max" you can have at any time. but previously it stopped paying out pills altogether

    Pin collecting was actually quite fun, but was over far too quickly. Fatov is a great prize though, as he is a full character with tasks.

    I think  Steven Hawking  may be joining the game.

    The Sci-Fi event has dropped, and it seems to be the most Simpson-esque event we've gotten in a while. The new characters are  Stephen Hawking and Sgt. Skinner , and apparently there's 1 new row of land.

    Oh of course there is an event. I was just happily earning donuts, track pieces, and other crap with no worries so why not force another timed event into the mix, woo. And this one lasts until *checks* September 20th wow.

    Saltiness aside, at least it looks neat enough and I am certainly excited about new row of land~

    Well, I guess it's already time to get started on the next event. It's a shame. I was actually enjoy taking a break after finishing the Olympic Games stuff early. I got to get more monorail pieces and I managed to get a ton of donuts from leveling up and winning them in daily challenges (and daily challenges where you can win donuts pretty much never happens during big events). Oh well. A least the event looks pretty fun, and I actually like the new mini-game.

    I really don't know why, in an event that is seemingly about science fiction, the multiverse, and the future, they decided to put in   the real Sgt. Skinner  , unless it's for a joke about how him and his episode are non-canon. Giving  Stephen Hawking   a different text box from everyone else was a nice touch though. I guess that means we'll be seeing more guest characters.

    Also, the event also includes  Future Burns and Smithers from Rosebud, a robot Stephen Hawking, an 'Evil' Homer, Future Bart and Lisa from Bart to the Future, and Future Maggie from Holidays of Future Passed.  

    And does anyone know what episodes   Evil Homer and the robot that looks like Hawking  come from?

    I thought the new event was decent with some cool Simpsons editions.

    Well, I was too quick to judge. It isn't that good of an update. Too much things are going on, it's already annoying. Wish we could go back to regular Springfield.
