From the Mouths of Addicts: Chinese New Year, YEAR OF THE MONKEY

The following post was submitted by one of our Addicts Regulars..Totbox.  Perhaps you’ve seen Tot in the comments a time or two ;)…

Hello to all the kwyjibos out there.

I must confess, I know very little about the Chinese cultural traditions regarding the zodiac signs and the up coming Chinese New Year (which starts February 8th and ends January 27th 2017) but I do know I was born when it was the year of the monkey before and thus I’m strangely excited about it’s return.

Unlike George Taylor, I like every Ape I see; from Chimpan-A to Chimpanzee.  Out of all the Animals in the Kingdom I find Monkeys to be the most relatable (maybe even literally)  :p  I like them as a multitude, perhaps in a single barrel. I even like them as a single one throwing barrels.

Before you try to explain to me that Apes and Gorillas aren’t technically Monkeys. I guess I should have pre-warned you that I don’t really care, I’m not a zoologist. I’m writing this for your enjoyment, relax, enjoy and stop interrupting me :p

Now if you want to hear more jokes and observations regarding all this monkey business  click “continue reading”. But first, a joke.

Do you know how to open a monastery door? Continue reading

Daily Challenges Rundown

2/8/16 Note About Krustyland/Sideshow You Daily Challenge: If you get this challenge, it’s not working.  A TON of players are having issues with it.  My best suggestion is to skip it.  I know it may pay out a donut, but you’re still better off skipping it for today and moving on.  If you’ve already skipped today’s task and this is your second task…best thing I can tell you to do is contact EA.  The good news is not completing the task won’t prevent you from moving on in the challenges, it’ll just hang out in the challenge box until it’s resolved.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So Daily Challenges have hit our games!  A fun replacement for the Daily Combo…tasks to do each day for the opportunity to earn donuts!  And who doesn’t love free donuts?

While we broke down the basics of the Daily Challenges in the rundown post and the Turbo Tappin’ post, now’s the time to break everything down in more detail.  Since I know you guys are all about the details…

So let’s take a look and the finer details of the Daily Challenges…

TSTO Speculation brought to you by dialogue and free time

Hey hey hey tappereenos!

So one of the things I do on occasion here is point out some speculatory ideas based on dialogue bubbles in the game.  I did it back during Level 42 and also from bits prior to January 2015.  Interestingly, quite a bit actually appeared later in the game whether you consider it coincidence or not.

Deep Space Homer and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Space Tappers!

It’s Blast Off time in Springfield, as the Deep Space Homer mini event has invaded our games for the last week plus.  With several new items hitting our games, as well as a few returning back to Springfield.   With all of the new items  added to Tapped Out I thought now would be a good time to take a look at how all of these items impact the Conform-O-Meter ratings (especially since this might help you decide what to keep out & what to put into storage).

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 Deep Space 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
