Hey friends! Time for another Did You Know That…….??, my attempt to dissect every aspect of this game, find any type of secrets, quirky game observations, etc. This one is a special Stonecutter edition that I think you all need to know because it involves that oh so coveted glazed currency, for you, for free!
I’m sure everyone by now has heard of Easter eggs in games, movies and various other forms of media. For those who don’t know, Easter eggs are hidden “things” which are hidden on purpose and when found result in either bonus currency, hidden text, weird character movements, etc. Tapped Out has at least one other that I know of, the Jebediah Statue Easter egg.
There is also an Easter egg within the Stonecutters event that was first brought to my attention by Nathan. I went into my game and can confirm that there is indeed a hidden gem. Here’s how to get it.
Homer’s #908 Stonecutter Skin (Free)
This is the 9th Emblem Prize and can be won by collecting 31,500 Emblems OR 425 donuts (which I do not recommend. That’s a lot of donuts and pretty much cancels out the benefits of the Easter egg but your game, your choice.)
Once you have both of these items tap on Homer and be sure to be on his Stonecutter task list. You’ll need to send him on his 12-hour task to Sing the Stonecutter Song.
Once #908 begins his task at the Stonecutter Table, tap on him once again to bring up the timer box, like this:
Without closing the timer, tap on Homer repeatedly, around 10 times. After the 10th tap you’ll see this:
After hitting the OK button you will be awarded 10 donuts! That’s it, that’s the Easter egg. No, it’s not a lot of donuts but it’s still 10 FREE donuts and it’s fun finding hidden gems. After playing this game for so long finding anything new or secret is what keeps it fun no matter what the reward is.
While we’re on the subject of donuts I’ll give you all another gem. This is not something hidden but is more of a cheat sheet. Once you have won all 10 of the Emblem Prizes, you will then collect emblems for a chance to win 3 donuts for every 3,000 emblems collected. This is exactly like the XP bonus when you max out your XP and there is no new level to progress to. For this event it is called the Membership Bonus.
One of the three boxes contains 3 donuts. If you do not pick the box with 3 on the first attempt you have the option to pay cash for a second or third attempt. Each attempt after the first will cost you $150,000.
You do NOT have to pay for a second or third chance. If you don’t want to shell out the cash you can collect however many donuts you have opened, either 1 or 2 donuts by tapping the COLLECT button. Otherwise tap the cash for another chance. I have decoded the chances from the files and if you follow the system you should be able to win 3 donuts on the first try every time.
There are 6 solutions and after the 6th bonus it begins back at number 1:
|Attempt||Box 1||Box 2||Box 3|
Sorry for the table, I;m having trouble getting it to paste properly from Word but you get the point. Even if you have already received a Membership Bonus you can still follow this table to find where you are based on your previous choices, if you keep track of that sort of thing.
Anyhow, that’s all I have for you today for Did You Know That …….?? I sincerely hope this helps or at least enlightens some of you. I also hope you’re enjoying this event as much as I am. Not that I am 100% back on the EA wagon but they have done a hell of a job redeeming themselves for past event disasters with this one. I almost don’t want it to end ever. Take care, happy tapping!
