  1. Marvin Monroe’s 24hr job is finally available to everyone


  2. I noticed Fit Mil and Great Grandpa earn amateur bucks, along with the radio station. .. are there any others haven’t found?


  3. Lurleen has no such task at the steel mill.


    1. a mistake on my part. that job was part of the questline. what I meant was that she can partake in that quest now. If you completed it it won’t show up anymore


      1. thanks for clarifying, I too just keep hoping more people can dance outside the mill.. 😛


  4. Did the animation for Sideshow You change slightly?


  5. Brandylynne 06/24/2015 — 22:51

    So what happens if I already have 6 excellence statues?


  6. I have found a glitch already! If you upgrade Homer and Lisa before completing the rest of task 6, you will have to do the other bit of the task again before progressing to part 7. A bit annoying but I suppose it adds to the total of event money.


  7. Is there a new friendship prize? I seem to collect friendship point from my neighbor’s handshakes but the point don’t accumulate.


  8. i see that you noted kbwl makes amateur bucks, does any other characters besides the main 4 earn them as well to start?


    1. Fit Milhouse has a task


    2. Great Grampa has a task, too


  9. Are we going to be able to collect foam hands while visiting friends at any point? I am wondering whether to do my daily visits now or wait a while. This looks like another multiple daily play event to get the items, oh well had a short break.


  10. Good to know why my bonus % increased so significantly. Thanks.


  11. Flanders has no animation for the job, “Do lunges”. He just freezes where he stands.


  12. this may be a bug: when you buy few amateur bucks it cost you 0 donuts


    1. They probably messed up with the rush cost. Good :p


  13. I can’t play my game on my iPhone at all.


    1. i can’t play since this afternoon too. everyone else has the same problem?


      1. it’s a known issue apparently please post here: ea forum thread. same login as the game
