Winter 2015: Where’s Maggie? Minigame

After completing the main questline for Act Maggie Special, a new minigame unlocks, allowing us to get bonus donuts by finding Maggie around town. Find out right after the jump how it works!
Where is Maggie

After completing The End of the Beginning Pt. 22, the quest Play-Dough’s Republic starts, unlocking a new function on the Playdough Factory: the ability to play Where’s Maggie?, a minigame that allows us to earn up to 3 bonus donuts every time we find Maggie 3 times around our Springfield.

Where's Maggie

The game can be activated by tapping on the Maggie icon above the Playdough Factory and tapping Start. It can be played every 16 hours.

You’ll have a time limit to find Maggie around your town, on top or just near this buildings:

Simpson House, Cletus’s Farm, Krusty Burger, Van Houten Home, Springfield Elementary, Springfield Library, Android’s Dungeon, First Church of Springfield, Moe’s Tavern, Police Station, Luigi’s, Springfield Retirement Castle, Town Hall, Springfield Wax Museum, Ziff Corp Office Building, Purple House, Blue House, Pink House, White House, Orange House, Lard Lads Donuts.

Maggie Found

After tapping her on the building, you’ll earn $500 and 200 XP.

Try to tap it on the bottom of it, not on Maggie. Some have reported having trouble hitting it, hopefully EA fixes it good soon!

After finding her 3 times (not consecutive, she can be found anytime, as long as you find her 3 times total) you can then open a box with bonus Donuts!

Find Maggie Bonus

If you wanna discover how it works, you can also check out the video below. For better quality, click on the cog on bottom right of the player and select 480p, or open the video on youtube by clicking on the title or here. For a better viewing experience go Full Screen by clicking the rectangle on bottom right in the player.


This is all for now, join us later for more on this event, happy tapping!

  1. When my timer fills up after the 16 hour wait time a pink “Done” appears at the end of the line. When I tap that it asks if I want to spend 2 donuts. If the 16 hours is up why do I have to spend donuts to play. Anyone else having this problem?

  5. Not a fan of this game. It’s much too hard; too many places for Maggie to hide (most of which make no sense), not enough time to search them all, and once the game starts I can’t move things around to help the search along.

  7. Same here. First time went great. After that, no joy. Thought it would be hard with my house farm.

    I suspect they need to raise her hot level up so that her hit box is elevated above overlapping boxes for other things.

    You would think she would be it.

    Perhaps a stylus might help?

  8. Caution:
    If you get only one donut from the boxes after finding Maggie three times, you do NOT get extra donuts by paying extra money. By that I mean that while you may spend $150,000 to open another box, the proceeds of that box are NOT added to the first. So if you tap a box with one donut, and then spend the money to open a box with two donuts in it, you only get two donuts. If you spend more money to tap the last box with three donuts in it, you lose the contents of the first two boxes. $150,000 is way too much time lost from the game for the sake of a single donut as far as I’m concerned. I found out the hard way, and lost two days of gameplay proceeds for the sake of two donuts. I feel gypped.

        I have the same problem here, 1st time I did it I found her & tapped her & it all worked perfectly. The next 2 times I found her with over a minute left on the clock & despite repeated tappings at all zoom levels the timer runs out & it claims I failed to find her.
        It seems to just be a very glitchy game & probably won’t pay out donuts after the event ends so I’ll probably never play it again. Much like the dog racing game, when was the last time anyone played that?

      1. Same – but tapping building did not work either. I zoomed in -out – part in etc. I tapped her, the building all buildings ground etc. spent a full minute and a half tapping like an idiot and was told I didn’t find her. Too much effort for little to no reward.

      3. The same as with the Railyard, I guess… πŸ˜‰

        I’ve played my first round of the Maggie game about 12hrs ago, got Wall-E-Weasle’s and am roughly 4 days ahead in terms of meeting the Gerald target. All without spending donuts, just tapping at least every 4hrs.

        Not losing imaginary bears is the key to success. Visiting neighbors is just a nice plus, but not critical. I don’t visit neighbors in my B game and am basically just 100-200 pacifiers behind my A game.

  16. So, gotta ask the stupid question: If you store all but one of those buildings, will Maggie always appear on the one remaining building?
