Hello Tappers! I’m back and the Christmas update is on its way! The Christmas update is expected to arrive on Tuesday which will end the Thanksgiving event and Gil’s deal. Due to Android players not experiencing the Christmas 2012 event and other players joining after the event, I thought that I would do a small post about last years Christmas event!
The Christmas update arrived on December 5th as it was announced on the Tapped Out Facebook page. On December 3, 2012, The Simpsons: Tapped Out‘s official Facebook page posted a message: “Let it snow! Springfield’s in for some holiday magic with a big new update… coming soon!” This told us that the Christmas update was just around the corner. It was announced on Tapped Out‘s Facebook page on December 4 that the holiday update would be released on December 5, So maybe we should start checking out their Facebook page to see if they are dropping any hints like they did last year.
The update was an app store update and this brought a new icon for the game along with a new opening menu. When you logged into Tapped Out, your town was covered in snow! It was like a winter wonderland, everything was covered in snow. This year should be very interesting as we have the Squidport and Krustyland expansion.
There was a new currency in tapped out and that was Santa Coins. For the length of the event players were given Santa’s Sacks instead of Mystery Boxes in their Daily Bonus. You could send some characters on tasks to earn Santa Coins or you could purchase a Santa’s Sack, which costs 5 donuts.
Apart from having your town covered in snow and a new currency, the update brought with it new buildings, characters, costumes, decorations and facades to the game. With a whole bunch of quests to enjoy. Take a look at Simpsonswiki here for more information on the new items that the Christmas update brought.
