Jebediah Springfield Statue Trick Gone?

I found it doesn't take ten taps. Did you try just tapping away at homer? My friend did that and got it eventually.

    It's still there as my granddaughter has just done it yesterday.
    However it was quite frustrating because it appeared to stop working at first, she had to do it a few times (about a dozen times) to succeed. Ridiculous.
    She did it with the task list open.

    Just tap Homer until you get the statue.
    I think it's not 10 times.

    So I told my cousin how to get the Jebediah Springfield Statue (Tap Homer 10 times while Task Box is open) and it didn't work. We tried it several times, with him off task and on a task, and it didn't work.

    Did EA remove this extra, or is there a new way to do it? Also, would the fact that he has the Jebadiah Whacking Day statue impact it?

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Maybe if he was tapping too fast he tapped right through the message. Have him check his inventory and see if it is there (I can't remember if it puts it in the intentory or has you place it right away.

    I did it yesterday as I was making this vid -

    So it definitely still works.

    I thought homer had to be on his play with his Mypad task to do it I got it 10 taps when he was on said task?

    I bet I've tried over 200 times in my second town. Slow, fast, task box open, during various tasks...haven't got it yet. My wife got it immediately in her second town.

    maybe having 2 towns is reason you cant. games sense your name or something that pertains to you and you already have one.

    i have 1 game and got it right on first try he was outside whacking snakes. i tap hime . while task bar was up i tapped him, but not in snake whack mode, 10 times got donuts AND statue.

    i tried 10 times on others with no affect.

    TheAdipose: nice video but you set the statue in front of the Flanders', not the Simpsons' house :) D'oh!

    I don't think the problem stems from having more than one town. Like I said, it worked in my wife's second town, and we can't be the only ones with more than one town.
    I'll just keep plugging away.

    Think its either related to whacking day or multiple towns. I have several towns and have managed to get the statue in some of them, but not others. I just try tapping Homer each time I go in and every once in a while the statue pops up.

    It still worked the other day for a friend, so it can be done. I was also able to do it in my second Springfield.
    Perhaps the problem is that you can't if your playing anonymous without signing in to origin. I found that if I play in this mode I can't get it.

    Created a second town just to try this. It still works. Took like 30 taps but I got it. Helps if you zoom in on Homer.
