    Well, it certainly took a while for the Christmas event to show up, didn't it? It's odd that took a while for it to show up, but it was kind of nice to have such a long break for once. I'm actually pretty shock at how short this event's going to be, only two acts and it ends in three weeks. I'm not sure if it's because EA wanted the event to end right before New Year's (and possibly throw a New Year's mini-event), or if they simply didn't have enough prizes to last three acts, or both. Whatever the case, I do like that this shorter time limit means that the event won't drag as much as some previous event's did when they reached their last act. I also like the gnome mini-game and that the Gnome is actually fully voiced.

    ...It really annoys me though that even in Tapped Out, Ned is still written as insane Christian fundamentalist who hates every other form of religion.

    Goddamnit EA. The Cult Flying Saucer from The Joy of Sect is not from season 13, episode 9... its from season 9, episode 13

    Other than that super important mistake, it seems to be a refreshing and educational event with a different kind of Christmas. But I can see why people don't like this, its missing the typical commercialised Christmas atmosphere. And it doesn't help that the snowfall is missing and all the jokes of ridiculing the religion. The prices for most of the part seem to similiar to that of Clash of Clans, and the Parson as the final price is not exactly a memorable and well characterisized HD character either. The doll hunt is pretty fun though.

    Its interesting that this event now has 2 acts instead of 3, maybe they have something else planned for when this event ends sooner then we're used to. So sick of events lasting to long so this is a nice change.
    Episodes rated best and worst from each season:
    1: Krusty Gets Busted/Homer's Night Out 2: The Way We Was/Bart's Dog Gets an F 3: Colonel Homer/Dog of Death 4: Marge vs. The Monorail/So It's Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show 5: Cape Feare/Bart Gets An Elephant 6: Treehouse of Horror V/Another Simpsons Clip Show 7: Mother Simpson/Homerpalooza 8: You Only Move Twice/The Canine Mutiny 9: Lisa's Sax/The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons 10: Lisa Gets an A/Sunday Cruddy Sunday 11: Behind The Laughter/Beyond Blunderdome 12: Trilogy of Error/The Computer Wore Menace Shoes 13: I Am Furious Yellow/Homer the Moe 14: The Dad Who Knew Too Little/Large Marge 15: The Way We Weren't/Diatribe of a Mad Housewife 16: Thank God Its Doomsday/Mommie Beerest 17: Marge's Son Poisoning/Bonfire of the Manatees 18: Marge Gamer/Revenge is Best Served Three Times 19: Treehouse of Horror XVIII/That 90's Show 20: Gone Maggie Gone/Coming To Homerica 21: O Brother, Where Bart thou?/The Devil Wears Nada 22: Homer Scissorhands/The Fool Monty 23: Holidays of Future Passed/Moe Goes From Rags To Riches 24: Adventures In Baby-Getting/Whiskey Business 25: Brick Like Me/White Christmas Blues 26: Bart's New Friend/The Musk Who Fell to Earth 27: Halloween of Horror/Every Man's Dream 28: There Will Be Buds/Moho House 29: Gone Boy/Throw Grampa from the Dane

    This is exactly why I'm not fond of this event but I now I feel bad. I suppose it is admirable to see them do something out of the usual Christmas norm. Also, I'm glad it's only two events because I'm sure it will get really boring after a while.

    I kept thinking I somehow forgotten how to access the gnome radar, so at least I can stop stressing. But yeah, I have no idea where he is. Probably somewhere in the blob of buildings I have placed in Springfield Heights.

    At least I wasn't going crazy...he's not there and it was a glitch that had to be fixed by going in and out of Krustyland. I had to research after missing the gnome for two or three cycles. Radar is working again.

    i feel like it's cliche for me to complain about updates in here. and this one is ok i guess. it's complicated enough that i don't know if i'm doing it "right" to get all the prizes, but i don't particularly care either. i do think not having it be about anything anyone playing would associate with this holiday was a little dumb, tho. this update could be in the middle of the summer largely unchanged and it wouldn't make a difference. like, for people who have a little "christmas section" in their town; are they honestly gonna put stonehenge in there? i put it over by the castles and ruins and shit we just got for the last halloween update

    Well, Jebediah Springfield and whoever the founder of Shelbyville was (I don't know his name) were added to the game in the latest update.... but you can only unlock them by buying donuts.

    Thanks for putting the only interesting new characters in this event behind a blatant paywall, game. Especially since without paying donuts, the only character you can unlock in this event is the Parson, and who cares about that guy?

    Also, the game added a new spot in the character collection labeled "Homer the Heretic", so I guess that's the next mini-event. According to the character collection spot, one of the new characters that's going to be added is  Rabbi Krustofsky.

    I can't believe it's taken me this long to get the Jebidiah Statue. On the plus side, 10 donuts bonus

    More land in Springfield heights finally. Though it means I'm back to the grind there for now

    I forgot what it's like to have green grass. My town feels so much more lush and open now.

    I like the new upgrades to Springfield Heights, giving me more characters to use in it (even if they take long) and a bigger amount of storage, is definitely going to help up in the long run.

    I also like how there hasn't been an event in a while, and at the lest probably won't be one until after The Great Phatsby tie-in premium deal expires. Good thing too, because the last two events haven't been that interesting. I mean, I like Maggie's snow suit costume being a prize, the gnome mini-game, and the fact that event was only two acts long, but the pagan stuff didn't really interest me (especially since they were only in the actual Christmas episode itself for like two minutes), the only character you could unlock was the Parson, and the questline was pretty annoying, since it was mostly just filled with "Ha ha, Ned is an insane Christian fundamentalist who discriminates against all other religions" jokes, and I really don't like it whenever they use Ned for that. Also the Homer the Heretic mini-event was pointless, since really the only thing you could get was another Homer costume, while all the other characters were premium.

    So here's hoping the next event is more interesting.

    The next event looks to focus on world travel.

    My guess is we will see buildings and characters from the vacation episodes, which means a ton of non-Springfield stuff.

    However this could finally mean we get the Springfield Airport!

    UP AND ATOM!

    so, in hindsight i feel like they were making a lot more of the daily challenges based around springfield heights in the lead-up to the expansion of it...does that mean they're gonna do something new with krustyland soon? because in the past 2 weeks the daily challenge has involved krustyland like 6 times

    I didn't know they were extending Springfield Heights. It's kind of annoying tbh since I recently completed SH

    Pretty damn good event we got this time, lots of good items and some new land. Even a new stripe of sea. And the long awaited Springfield Airport is actually a thing

    There's also some new music but I don't know if it came from another game. Could be from Hit & Run.

    It's not Hit & Run. Having just recently picked up The Simpsons Game for PS3, I instantly recognized it. The usual music that plays is also from that game. Having played Tapped Out first, I was pretty disappointed that The Simpsons Game has the exact same soundbytes for all the supporting characters as you hear when you tap on any Springfielder in Tapped Out.

    Have anyone played Springfield Mania? I think it is pretty cool!
