Lisa Image Dad, have you decided on your New Year’s resolution? Or, might I suggest, resolutions?
Homer Head Lisa, I can’t set a new resolution until I complete last year’s: stop procrastinating.
Homer Head But I guess I can always stop procrastinating tomorrow. Tonight we celebrate!
Homer HeadWe shall turn toward the majestic sky and assault it with explosives. Just to take that high and mighty sky down a notch.

(Note: Giuseppe starts all the parts):

The Italian Grenadessance! Pt. 1

Giuseppe Head Mama Mia! It’s-a New Years Eva!
Lisa Image Also known as the January Kalends in Italy. A time of food, gifts, and excessive hand gestures.
Giuseppe Head You’re’a mistaken! It’s the January Kleanse, where we celebrate the New Year by blowing up everything of the old year.
Giuseppe Head It’s-a great Italian tradition dating back to the intentional demolition of the Roman Empire.
Lisa Image I don’t think that-
Giuseppe Head Or Pompeii, where we blew up Mt. Vesuvius totally on-a purpose!
Giuseppe Head You can still see-a the smiling, happy faces of the people of Pompeii frozen in ash, mid-party.
Lisa Image Are we talking about the same Pompeii?
Giuseppe Head But-a nothing compares to the expressions of the people when they see my New Year party-poppers.
Lisa Image I’m starting to think maybe I WON’T do my year abroad in college in Italy.

Task: Make Giuseppe Construct Fireworks (12h, Giuseppes Workshop)
Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

Legs HeadIt looks like there’s a new guy in town trying to edge in on our illegal fireworks racket! Is nothing sacred?
Fat Tony head Take him out, nice and clean. Send him a gift-wrapped package that will go boom.
Legs Head A subwoofer? So thoughtful.
Louie Head He means a bomb. But boss, he’s full-blooded Italian – how do we know he’s not untouchable?
Fat Tony head I’ll touch who I want, when I want, however I want!
Louie Head Can’t we just kill the guy?

The Italian Grenadessance! Pt. 2

Giuseppe Head Someone has sent me a great gift!
Lisa Image This package looks very suspicious. The return address is “Mafia HQ.” And it’s ticking…
Lisa Image Also it says “Do Not Jostle Bomb” on the side.
Giuseppe Head Just like momma used to make in The Old Country, which was the name of our bomb factory.

Task: Make Giuseppe Admire the Gift Bomb’s Craftsmanship (24h, Giuseppes Workshop)
Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

The Italian Grenadessance! Pt. 3

Giuseppe Head Lisa, I have a special surprise for you!
Lisa Image Is it dangerous?
Giuseppe Head No! Now-a just put on that padding and approach slowly.
Giuseppe Head I’ve-a turned the bomb into the biggest firework that-a Springfield has ever seen!
Giuseppe Head And I had enough left over to make the second biggest firework Springfield has ever seen!
Fat Tony head Giuseppe, your kindness and ingenuity has made me want to turn over a new leaf.
Fat Tony head Legs, don’t dump that body. Recycle it instead.

Task: Make Giuseppe Wow the Town with a Huge Firework Display (1h, Giuseppes Workshop)
Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

Will you buy some fireworks? Write a comment below and let us know!

The questline will resume on New Year’s Day with Best New Year’s Day Ever. Hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll see you soon with more posts. Happy holidays and tapping!

  3. So they only recycle stuff, nothing new? And only premium stuff? Lame.


    1. You got that right. A lot of the time I don’t even notice something’s going on, because there’s nothing in the store.


  4. Glad to see you here Italian boy…and giving ppl info about the game Roxy (spanish friend) here wishing you the best luck in this new project and that topix page goes up up to the sky!
