Along with this years Thanksgiving mini-event came an episode tie-in for the upcoming episode titled “Covercraft” which is set to air Sunday, November 23 at 8:00 EST. I realize many of you do not live in the US and will not be seeing this episode for some time but I feel it necessary to get the coverage for this out first due to the timing. For those of you who can’t see the new episodes as they air there are ways around that *hint**hint*.
Any how the breakdown of the tie-in update is after the jump.
According to the game files the dates listed below pertain to this update:
- Covercraft Start Date – November 20, 2014
- Covercraft End Date – November 25, 2014
This tie-in update only contains 1 new item Guitar Central. It also comes with a rather long 12 part quest line called Two Minutes of Hate but only if you choose to buy the building. Let’s break down the item first.

Action Quote: “Making Dreams Become Purchases”
There is a 2-part prologue quest leading up to activating Guitar Central in the store. I will give you the walkthrough for that below. If you decide to purchase the Guitar Central building then you will receive the full quest for it which contains 8 more parts. The total quest is 10 parts.
Two Minutes of Hate Pt. 1 (Prologue to Guitar Central)
Lisa will start it off if you have her free. After tapping Lisa:
- Reach Level 17 and Build King Toot’s
- Make Homer & Lisa Visit King Toot’s
Once they arrive at King Toot’s:
Lisa begins the next part, keep her available.
Two Minutes of Hate Pt. 2 (Prologue to Guitar Central)
After tapping Lisa:
Make Homer Visit Moe’s
Once Homer reaches Moe’s Tavern:
You will now receive a system message:
Tune into this week’s Simpsons and find out what went wrong between Moe and King Toot that led to the closing of King Toot’s! Sunday 8/7 central on FOX!
And then another:
Check out the Guitar Central in the store and make Homer’s musical dreams become purchases! Available until Monday!
If you purchase Guitar Central the quest will continue on.
I will continue the remainder of the walkthrough for Guitar Central shortly but I just wanted to get out the most vital information for those of you who may wish to purchase the building. For the price of 50 donuts you get a decent sized building, a 10-part quest and a permanent job for Otto so I would say it’s not a bad deal. But ultimately it’s your decision but make it quickly this won’t be around for long! Thanks for reading.
