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?!

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!

Sunday Night Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite Addicted Tappers this evening?  Everyone enjoying their weekend?  Who’s Ready For Turkey Time? (at least in the US)

Anyway enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  No, no it’s not time to stuff the Turkey….still a few more days before that happens!  Nope nope it’s time for another Sunday Night Open Thread!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So…here is your Sunday Night Open Thread.  Thanksgiving hit our Tapping Devices this week…what do you think of the new content?  The Simpsons is all new this week…and with an episode tie-in, are you excited to check it out?  After all, King Toot is finally revealed!  Sunday Night Football tonight features the Cowboys v Giants..who do YOU think will win?  How did your team do this week?  The Holidays are approaching…how are you getting ready to celebrate?

So chat about The Simpsons, Thanksgiving, Update fun, NFL, holidays or anything else you can think of!  Can’t wait to chat with you all!  You know we  LOVE hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

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 Puritan Flanders got in the way!

Tapped Out Premium Walkthrough: Üter Zörker

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Back with another full dialogue walkthrough.  This time we’re covering the premium Level 45 Character, Üter!  Üter’s questline is pretty amusing, and brings other characters into play as well, it’ll even get a premium character like Hank Scorpio involved (if you have him)!

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 if you purchase Üter.  So for those that may have missed it (or for those of you that want to live it again)…I bring you all the fun and humor of Üter…and what happens when You Got Your Schokolade in My Erdnussbutter…..

Tapped Out Event Walkthrough: Halloween 2014

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well…Halloween is coming to an end.  Are you sad?  Do you miss it already?  Anyway, I thought it would be fun…while we’re waiting for “the next big thing”….to go back and take a look at all the fun of the main Halloween questline!

This questline has a lot of twists and turns in it and is really a fun one to read.  So just in case you missed anything while reading it, we’ve got all the fun for you here!

Since it was broken up into three sections there may be some things you guys forgot about, or just trying to remember what happened wayyyyy back at the start of October.  So, we’ve got it all covered for you here!  Now you can relive Kang’s attempts to take over Springfield and his path to citizenship!

So now, what are we waitin’ for?  Let’s relive the fun and excitement of the early days of the alien invasion shall we?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well the end of Halloween is quickly approaching (ends Nov. 12th), so I figured now would be a good time to take a look at how all of the new additions from Halloween 2014 impact your Conform-O-Meter rating.

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.

While the Halloween event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring us a ton of new items to add to our Springfield.  Let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating…. Continue reading
