Emblem Prize 1: The Sacred Parchment Tasks

Alert: Spoilers Ahead! Answers to the puzzles are at end of the post!

Once you earn 1450 emblems, you’re awarded The Sacred Parchment. When you place it in your Springfield, it starts to generate puzzles which requires characters completing tasks in order to solve. Every day a new puzzle unlocks, and solving the puzzles will earn you more prizes, including 50 emblems for each puzzle.

Sacred Parchment

You don’t have to solve the puzzles immediately or in the order in which they’re given. But to get the all of the prizes, you do have to do all of the puzzles before the event ends. Fortunately there’s plenty of time to complete all 24.

Tap on the hint button when it is available. The clues given are relatively easy, especially for those who are very familiar with the game characters and their tasks. An example is below:

sacredparch-hint

  1. I received enough tokens to get the stonecutter outfit for Mr. Burns along with the money pool. I didn’t place it right away and not I don’t know how to activate his stonecutter outfit or where the money pool is stored. Not in my inventory I checked. On the tasks it tells me to place the money pool and make Burns take a swim but there is no button that allows me to make Burns build the pool or take a swim in it. Any suggestions?

    • The moneypool is in the inventory. To switch skins tap the character and topright in the tasklist theres a +/- tap that to show/hide costumes.

      • I did both things and nothing. Tr money pool is not in my inventory and the stonecutter skin for mr. Burns does not show up when I tap on him. I tried putting me. Burns back into my inventory to try to reset and nothing. It’s almost as if the money pool and his stonecutter outfit did not activate on my game. Do you have any idea as to what I can do?

    • To be honest, it will be really tight. To be on track you should have 28,600 by the end of the 26th. You could always use donuts to speed the prize up but Never rush the No1 tasks!

  6. Ok, I’ve resided to the fact that I’m lvl 31, that I may not complete all of Number 1’s Tasks or The Sacred Parchment and I’m not very pleased considering the time I have put into this game. I have been 4 for 4 on all of Number 1’s tasks except two times then it was 3 for 4, everyday at midnight I’ve started a task and it doesn’t feel like I’m going to be able to complete it in the end (fingers crossed though) I still haven’t been able to unlock Hibbit, Smithers, Angel, Fat Tony or Herman, therefore I’m going to miss the completion of The Sacred Parchment…. I’ve put, wasted and or given a lot of my time into this game to fall short because a quest line won’t activate or trigger….

    I have an Origin account, dating back to the Medal of Honor release a few years ago…

    Any help or encouragement would be greatly appreciated because I’m just about
    TAPPED OUT with this game!!!

    Thanks Minicha for your help.

    • The Pachement tasks can be done whenever and there is still some time to unlock the needed characters. I agree that it is a bummer for newer players that some highlevel characters are used, events are suppose to be for All players. You’re lucky to have the reset time at midnight, mine is 2am and theres no way any normal person is up at that time but Im not normal and have only missed three 400 tasks (counting both games) so Im on track. Glad to see the 20h days gone with the update.

    • Clean trash, play Sideshow You, level up, bonus level up, do the questlines, visit friends : all theses actions can give you donuts. Or you can trust a criminal to illegaly modify your game (access other apps on your device, like personal banking stuff?), get suspended by EA and void your device garantee, it’s up to you.

  8. Has anyone else had trouble finding Smithers? In my town, he’s somehow locked at the Nuclear Plant. It says Error next to his picture. For some reason I can’t get him out of there. Has anyone else had this issue? How can it be fixed? Cheers

    Like

    • I had it too, early in the event. Two ways to fix it. The best way is to store the power plant control building and place it back in your town. The other way is to do the same to Burns Mansion, but it restarts its earnings.

  9. I noticed that Herman and Agnes are on the list. But, what if you are a relatively new player (Level 25) and don’t have those characters? Will you be able to still get the final prize? Will there be a replacement task? It’s unfair that those characters are unlocked so far in the game.

  10. I noticed last night that if you start a task before you reveal the parchment, but complete it afterwards it counts. For example, I happened to have already made rev. Lovejoy ride his model train last night. I happen to open the new task right at 3am, and then tapped the reverend to complete the task and ta-da! Today’s parchment was complete 5 minutes after I got it.

    • Yes, I tried it with the 24h Skinner task to see if it did count 🙂

    • If you rush the prizes with Donuts it will add to the emblemcount, your total will be at whatever prize(s) you rushed, so if you paid to get the money pool and No 29 your new count will be 14,000, if you rushed ’em all your count will be over 35K.
      The donutcost decrease the closer you get to the prize but if I were you I’d save the donuts as you’re on track to get all prizes free.
      I play a few times more then you per day and my count is just over 12K, Im not rushing it if I dont have to 🙂

    • Hallo, I hope you get to read this. Another poster mentioned that if u tap on the Stonecutter building ALONE u get 5 emblems, so that’s what I started doing. I got thru all my friends and tap on ther stonecutter building/lodge alone. I keep going back to all the towns over and over again, waiting for them to ?refresh their buildings and tap again to get 5 emblems. In essence, instead of getting only 3-8 emblems per town, I get 15 :). Granted, this method does take up a lot of time. Cos u have to wait for the player to refresh his building and keep checking and rechecking….I think its worth it though, I started the event 2 days late and I just unlocked the Stone of triumph(22,500 emblems). :). Oh and I’ve never bought and speeded up anything (intentionally) with donuts. Hope this helps someone! 🙂

  16. It is correct as stated, it unlocks at 0800 GMT.

    GMT is a reference time and isn’t changed when most of the world switches to/from winter and summer time, which means our time difference to GMT changes. In England for instance, they are on GMT during winter, but GMT+1 during the summer.

  17. In the UK we are currently on Summer Time (we do like our little jokes), so we are at GMT plus 1 hour, which explains the 9.00 am unlock… It’s still 8.00 am GMT.
