The Whacking Day Event Guide

The Whacking Day Event was the fourth major event to take place in The Simpsons: Tapped Out. It started on April 10, 2013 and ended on May 16, 2013, after being extended by a week from its earlier planned end date of May 9. Some of the new features which were in the event can be found below. Please note that the Whacking Day Event was only available for players Level 5 and over.

The player had to whack snakes in order to get the new currency of snakes, which could be collected to earn rewards, or snake eggs. Snake eggs could be placed in friends' towns and hatched by their friends. There was a 1% chance that a snake egg may contain a donut. When the player redeemed rewards, snakes did not decrease in the players account and the snake balance was continuous.

After whacking 400 snakes, the player unlocked the Expert Whacking License, which allowed them to whack snakes in friends' towns - a maximum of five per day. The player could also purchase the Elite Whacking License for 50 donuts, which would allow them to whack 10 snakes per day in friends' towns.

An event for Whacking Day had been planned since the games launch, but due to the number of complaints due to game bugs and the App Store removal, the Whacking Day Event for 2012 could not go ahead.

Along with all of the new content, game upgrades were added too. An option to turn on a 'confirm donut spend' box was added, as well as tick-boxes when clicking on the info for unlocking a building. Another major feature was the ability to watch movie clips for the game, including the introduction, building Bart's Treehouse, sending Homer back home and building Moe's. Also, when visiting friends with Origin, they will no longer appear in alphabetical order, and will appear randomly every time you click on the neighbors screen. This is most likely because people complained that if thier Origin username began with a 'z' or a 'y' they did not get visited very much as they were always at the end of the list.
