Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey Howdy Hey Turkey Tappers!

Woohoo, it’s finally Turkey Day here in the US! And you know what that means? Turkey, mashed potatoes, apple pie, pumpkin pie, football, stretchy pants and insane sales at the mall! You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always find all the latest on the Thanksgiving Update here), as the Addicts staff celebrates the holiday with their families but don’t worry we’ll be back at it tomorrow!

However, we couldn’t let a day dedicated to being thankful go with out a special THANK YOU to all of our AMAZING readers! We are so thankful for each and every one of you taking the time to read our posts and comment! So from Wookiee, Bunny, and myself THANK YOU!!!

Now for a little extra fun. In my family, and many families, we have a tradition on Thanksgiving, we go around the table and each take a turn saying what we’re most thankful for over the past year. So, I thought it would be fun if my Addicts family each took a turn and shared with you, our AMAZING readers, what we’re most thankful for this year! So with that being said…. Continue reading

11/27 Thanksgiving-a-Roony!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Phase 5 of Turkey Day is now active…as you may have seen when you finished the first part of the Thanksgiving Questline this pops up:

2014-11-24 02.58.48

And well…today is Thursday November 27th…so what’s in store today?

Bart gets things started today with some dialogue with Homer…

Then you’ll continue the Black Friday questline, Gear up for Savings..with a 6hr task for Homer.

But don’t send him on it right away…..because Homer gets things started for the second questline that’ll popup!

This will continue The Thanksgiving Meal questline.  You’ll have to send Simpsons and Flanders to eat a Thanksgiving Dinner together x10.  This is a 30m task.  Here’s who you can send:
Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart, Flanders, Maude, Rod, Todd, Grampa, Patty, Selma, Mrs. Bouvier, and Hugo.

And that’s it for today!  But you’re reminded to check back tomorrow….

2014-11-27 08.10.25

Remember…there’s 1 task released each day.  Some task award a “reward-a-roony” while others are just tasks.  So far no prizes have been awarded, but stay tuned tomorrow to see what’s in store for us then!  

What do YOU think of the slow Thanksgiving roll-out?  Thoughts on the short task for today?  Did it trigger for you or were you still finishing the first part?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Turbo Tappin’ Premium Turkey Day 2014: Mrs. Bouvier

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah Thanksgiving!  In the words of Homer….”The high holiday of gorging! Uncluttered with Yule logs, Easter egg hunts, flag saluting or the yoinking out of groundhogs.”  That is until your mother in-law shows up!

The Thanksgiving update has brought Marge’s mother, Mrs. Bouvier, back to Springfield…much to the delight of Abe Simpson!  So now that we have an all-new premium character added to Springfield it’s time to take a look at just what happens when she arrives in town!

So now…let’s get to Tappin’ shall we?!

Tapped Out Level Walkthroughs: Level 46, Mrs. Muntz, Dr. Feelgood & the Moonbounce

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 46 hit our Tapping Devices a few weeks ago and with it we get a little more freemium estrogen in our Springfields, as Level 46 introduces Mrs. Muntz!  (Bet you didn’t see THAT coming?)

While we’ve had the Turbo Tappin’ walkthrough up since the update first hit (you can view it here) I know many of you still love going back and reading old walkthroughs.  They’re great if you missed any of the dialogue while playing the level, or if you just want to know what to expect when you reach Level 46.  So for those that may have missed it (or for those of you that want to live it again)…I bring you all the *ahem* “Adult entertainment” of…..Mrs. Muntz!

Should I Buy….Thanksgiving Rewind!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Turkey time in Springfield! Leaves have changed colors, Puritan Flanders & Sacagawea Lisa have arrived in town…oh and Thanksgiving is back in our TSTO Stores!

As with Thanksgivings past (and other events) EA has decided to make old items new again, and give players who might have missed out on something a second chance to get it.  Of course that second chance doesn’t come with out a price, as many of the returning items are premium.

Recently EA brought back several items from 2013 and 2012, Caesar’s Pow Wow Casino, Casino Sign, Tribal Chief & Thanksgiving Day Balloons.  Now many of you are curious if any of these items are worth your hard earned donuts, and we’ve broken a lot of these down for the previous events…however we decided it’d be great to give them another look in a Thanksgiving Should I Buy reboot post!

So now let’s take a look and see if these items are worth YOUR donuts!

Conform-O-Meter Catch Up: Levels 46/47 & Simpsorama/Covercraft Episode Tie-Ins

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well it’s Thanksgiving in Springfield…but before we can talk about all the new Thanksgiving items and how they impact the Conform-O-Meter, we first have to play a little Conform-O-Meter catch up!

Between Halloween and Thanksgiving we were hit with 2 Level Updates and 2 episode tie-ins.  Those events brought a ton of new decorations and requirements that impact the Conform-O-Meter, so let’s take a look at how it all breaks down!

The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and  XP from everything you collect in the game.  When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town.  If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.

Of course with the release of Levels 46 and 47 many of the requirements to maintain 5 Stars on your Conform-O-Meter have changed, so let’s check it out and see what the new requirements are.  So now you’ll have all the information you need to maintain that 5-Star Springfield!
