    Another benefit in tapping SSB as noted on wikia:
    Upon tapping Bob, the player will be awarded a small portion of experience, along with a boost to the Righteousness category of their Conform-O-Meter.

    Thanks to @fastshadow2 @Springfield_s3 and last, but not least @chadstraus97 – if it wasn't for their input in the SSB thread above, this thread would not have been written.

  • Fantastic guide! B)

    So... it looks like having a new player as a neighbour may well be the answer to finally getting Bob in your town if you haven't already got him from the past event?

  • That's a fantastic amount of effort you put in to this! Love the user name :D

    I don’t think that having a neighbour still with an NPC SSB and tapping him there would make any difference to triggering the quest line, but I would be more than happy to be proved wrong! I think it would be just the same as tapping SSB in OS.
    Edited quote from the linked thread:
    I spotted him in a neighbors town about 6 weeks ago, and tapped on him. She didn’t have him yet, as a character. I had hoped it would set the trigger right then, but nope.
    @frosted1414 Thanks :smiley:
    You both may like to read the 3rd post too, as I hadn’t finished all the uploads when you both replied.

  • That's a great guide!! Thank you for putting this together. It should really benefit a lot of players. And thank you for the mention, although I think my experience was far more learning all of the things that don't work and a peek into EA's mismanagement of a well-known issue than actually learning anything that does help. :D
  • Since you did this "quirk" involving iOS and SSB, I wonder how this would work on Android, and if they have a similar quirk to get him easier.

    I'd like to know this too, although my sense is that it's unique to iOS. I don't know about you, but any notification I have about the game immediately goes away when I open the game and I don't get the sense that, when you switch away to a different app/your homescreen, it has the same sort of "reset" effect as going to OS/KL. I mean, I'm hardly the ideal test case considering my SSB issues, but I know I also constantly pull down to my notification center when I'm playing because I'm either checking the time or reading texts and that has never caused any game notification, SSB or otherwise, to appear for me. Maybe it would be equally effective to repeatedly go into and out of the game (with a "hard close" each time) while completing 6s tasks and having the game repeatedly trigger notifications that way?
  • outstanding guide, Muhsterino!
  • Flaw and Order pt 1 just triggered for me using the ios trick 10 times. i’m on level 939

  • Wow. My daughter has a town, so I figured I’d try this tactic out, since she doesn’t have Bob. I wasn’t keeping track, but I’d say around 10 notification menu pulls, her game started the Bob task part 2! (She must have played part 1 some time ago). I just tried to get part 3 to start after finishing part 2, but it hasn’t started yet after 20 notification pulls.
  • Saw it! Won it! ( years ago ) Love it!
    Make Nightmare Pile like Zombie Sandwich. All kids trick or treat at once.
  • Saw it. Want it. Don't have iOS.
  • @fastshadow2 @rockyb2006 Thank you both for posting :) I am happy you both got it to work. It may be that you have to wait 24 hours to be able to trigger the next part of the quest line.

    thank you for your posts and tips @Muhsterino
    did you use the ios tip for pt 2 and 3 to trigger? i did see you had to wait 24 hr but thought i’d try a couple hours after triggering pt 1 without any luck, just so you know

    Question: how does the game act upon returning to it? Does it show you the loading screen?

    Yes, I used the tip for all 3 parts. :)

    No, when I go back to the game using the home button, it returns straight to my town.

    I saw that you waited 24 hours after attempting it some more. I will try it again at the 24 hour mark and post my results. :smile:

    I actually kept trying to trigger part 2 as soon as I finished part 1, but I think it is likely that there is a period of time where it is not possible to trigger the next quest. If this was not the case, then as soon as part 1 was triggered it would be possible in theory to get SSB in a matter of minutes.
