Golden Train Teaser Pt. 1

After unlocking the 1st Lost Luggage Mystery Box
Auto starts

Milhouse: What's your next thrilling international adventure, Uncle Norbert?
Lisa: Yes, what culturally significant artifact will you be stealing from exploited natives to sell to the highest bidder?
Norbert: “The Golden Train”! Forged in Babylonia five thousand years ago.
Lisa: That's silly. Babylonians didn't have trains.
Norbert: Exactly. So either aliens gave them a choo choo, or someone did a “Back to the Future III”.
Milhouse: Both plausible!

Golden Train Teaser Pt. 2

After unlocking the 2nd Lost Luggage Mystery Box
Auto starts

Milhouse: Uncle Norbert, you're sending Springfielders to find clues to the whereabouts of the Golden Train.
Milhouse: But, shouldn't you be doing that yourself? I mean, you're the swashbuckling adventurer.
Norbert: Ye-es. But I thought someone else might like the fun of getting killed searching for cursed ancient artifacts.
Milhouse: That's so nice of you!

Generic Dialogue Intro

Norbert starts

Upon starting a new day in Norbert's Adventure Tasks, Norbert starts a quick random dialogue

Norbert: Another day, another transcontinental flight in a seat next to the bathroom.

Norbert: Another day!
Sea Captain: Arrr! More plundering the world's precious ancient artifacts.
Norbert: We prefer to call it “confrontational antiquing.”

Norbert: Fly to enough places, and we'll eventually find the clues we need.

Norbert: Hopefully today's treasures are in countries where they have Krusty Burgers.

Norbert: Let's see what perilous tasks we have available today.

  • @LPNintendoITA My game is stuck at the task: Unlock Norbert's Plane...right before Strangers on a Golden train Part 1. I've collected all Norbert's prizes and it went through the script, but when I tap on Norbert in my taskbook to do the 'unlock Norberts Plane' task it just keeps sending me to the airport to send passengers. I've been doing this over and over and nothing changes. I even have Grandpa a Luann free. Ideas?

    Wait for tomorrow. You should be awarded Norbert's plane for completing his adventures tomorrow instead of an airport expansion piece (just like the globe and black plane in acts one and two).

    The wording of the message is misleading. EA should have changed it to refer to tomorrow or coded it to appear on starting Norbert's day 8 tasks each act, not on finishing day 7.
