During the Season Premiere 2016 event it is possible to stagger your characters jobs between quests (such as between Battle of the Brands Pt. 3 and Pt. 4). This may help you move ahead a little bit faster, but mostly it’s just for fun. Read on to learn the details of the technique.
Staggering is where you send a character on a task right before you complete the quest. If that specific event allows it, then you can have one extra character earning for the next quest even if they weren’t included in the job list.
Review the following information to make the best choices for adding a few extra Gift Cards.
Legend: Italicized characters continue on from the previous quest, Bolded characters drop out from the previous quest (which means that you want to stagger them), and Normal characters are new to that quest (nothing special about them).
Laird Ladd can be used during every part. He earns 2 Gift Cards for a 3 hour task.
During Part 1, it’s just Homer. All the regular characters earn 1 Gift Card for their 3 hour tasks.
Part 2 includes Homer, Lisa, Moe, and Ned.
Apu and Mayor Quimby join Homer, Lisa, Moe, and Ned for Part 3.
Lisa and Moe drop out for Part 4 while Homer, Apu, Ned, and Mayor Quimby continue. Marge joins.
Lisa and Moe come back for Part 5. Homer, Apu, and Mayor Quimby continue, while Marge and Ned drop out. Cletus joins.
For Part 6 Mr. Burns joins Homer, Lisa, Ned, Apu, and Mayor Quimby. That means that Cletus and Moe drop out.
