Whack Attack!

It’s Whacking day in the US, so what is there better to do at the EA HQ than make new art, currency and a reward structure to celebrate? (If you are across the pond like me, Whacking Day is a national holiday where they kill snakes for awards.)

The aim of this event is that you hit snakes in your overrun Springfield to receive rewards (like money-making buildings and characters) and get eggs so you give your Origin friends more snakes. The more snakes you hit, the more prizes you get!
Here are some of the prizes you can get:

This item is a training snake, which is part of Homer’s event for his Ninja outfit.

You could also buy these stalls, which I recollect have no purpose other than being a souvenir.

Obviously, there would be an in game currency. You can place eggs in other peoples’ towns and they hatch to become a snake. You get them by batting snakes.
