GREAT TIP! Earn Bunnies FASTER

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Dropping in with a quick but AWESOME tip I just tested out to earn bunnies FASTER!  You can earn up to 20 more bunnies every 4 hrs…which translates to MORE EGGS!

Now if you’ve been reading this blog regularly during this update you’ll know that you can earn 10 bunnies each time you grow carrots on Cletus’s Farm.  So 10 bunnies every 4 hrs…BUT there’s a way you can cut that time in half and get 10 bunnies every 2 hrs…with out using donuts!

Here’s what you’ll need for this:

-Part 8 of the main questline, Four-Day Weekend For Our Sins, started, Harvest Carrots at Cletus’s Farm.
farm
-Witch Marge (from Halloween 2012 and 2013)
-Ability to check your town every 2 hrs

Here’s what you do:

-Grow Carrots on Cletus’s Farm…4hr task.
-Use Witch Marge skin to Speed Up Crops
-This will cut the time in half for carrots!  From 4hrs down to 2hrs!
time cut farm
witchcarrotscarrots ready
-Clear your town of bunnies BEFORE you harvest the carrots.  Otherwise you might get a too many bunnies message.
-After you harvest the bunnies….Witch Marge will still have 2hrs left on her Speed Up Crops task.  You might think it was a waste right?  WRONG…plant carrots AGAIN, right away after harvesting them.
witch empty

-Witch Marge will STILL cut the time in half on the carrots.

So…1 4hr Witch Marge task = 2 Carrot Harvests on Cletus’s farm, which equals 20 Bunnies every 4 hours!

Yes, I’ve fully tested this and it works COMPLETELY!

What a great way to earn Eggs quicker!

Special thanks to our reader Marc who pointed this out to me!

It Doesn’t Add Up….Or Does It? The Math of TSTO Easter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

I see that many of you are now starting to unlock the Easter content and are so far loving the event!  What’s not to love?  Hunting wabbits and free stuff!  Oh and did I mention FREE donuts?  Not only are donuts in the questline (check here for the post) but many Tappers are reporting they’re STILL earning donuts from tapping neighbor’s buildings, as long as they’re maxed out on Friend Points (check here for more details on donuts in FP)!  Not a bad way to have an event start off, right?

So now that many of you are starting to unlock the content, and some of you are acquiring your first Easter Box, I see some of you starting to question the math of it all.  As I explained in my odds post with this event you’re guaranteed to unlock all of the items, as long as you’re diligent with your tapping.  And some of you are starting to say…’wait a min!  81 attempts to guarantee it x 500 Eggs = 40,500 Eggs/color!  That’s impossible to do!’

And you know what?  Those of you thinking like that…you’re right.  It is impossible to do in the way you’re thinking.  The problem is…you’re thinking about it all wrong.  You’re taking the literal conversion of exactly how many eggs you get and coming up WAY short.  However, as they say…there’s more than 1 way to skin a cat…er bunny?

Those of you taking the literal conversions into account you’re forgetting an IMPORTANT aspect of this update….games of chance.  Let’s break it all down and I’ll show you how you can earn enough to unlock everything….with out using donuts.  All you need is diligent tapping and patience.  You may not get something until the very last day, but keep your patience and don’t lose your cool!

Easter Event Neighbor Guide

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As it’s nearing that magic hour of 24hrs since the update launched, I know many of you will be just starting to unlock your Easter content (and I know you’re anxiously counting down the seconds until you can!) so I wanted to take a minute and go over a few of the neighbor basics for the Easter Event.

This will be short and sweet, and is mostly to serve as a general quick tips guide when visiting neighbors.  We will break everything down into more detail as we progress through the event.  So for now just the basics, so you can get rolling on those eggs!

DO NOT ADD FRIEND REQUESTS HERE!!  If you post an add me request to this post (or any other post that’s not the specific Add Me thread) it will be deleted.  We don’t want to be mean about it, but we want to make sure as many people see your requests as possible, that want to see them.  So we have a GREAT resource for adding friends and putting your Origin ID if friends to add you here.

Turbo Tappin’ Easter 2014

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well the Easter update is upon us!  Bunnies, bunnies, bunnies…they’re EVERYWHERE!  And we’ve been seeing a TON of comments about “what happens next”, so now that the update is nearing 24hrs old, and for most of you Homer, Willie & Apu will be wrapping up their Whacking Day preparedness shortly, we figured it’s a good time to Turbo Tap Easter!

For those of you who don’t know Turbo Tappin’ is our quick version of a walkthrough for the Level/Update/Character where we give you who starts the quest, the task and what you earn.  This way you have your quick guide on who to keep free and when.  This is great for our fellow Addicts who love to copy and paste the walkthrough into their device for quick reference.

Now on with Easter!  As I mentioned in the initial update post the main quest is kicked off by Homer and the anticipation of Whacking Day.  While the main quest is called Four-Day Weekend For Our Sins, there are some mini quests , entitled something different each time, that pop-up throughout as well.  We’ll cover those here as well.  So let’s get to Turbo Tappin’ shall we?

What Are You: Pink or Blue?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So this morning I want to talk to you about something that’s VERY different with this update, something in your favor!  I want to talk to you about the Easter Boxes!

I know what many of you are thinking…it’s the holiday wheel just in box form!  But guess what?  It’s not!  What if I told you, as long as you play the game and collect eggs you are guaranteed to collect ALL of the prizes, with out spending a single donut on eggs?

Impossible?  Nope.  I’m telling you EA listened to YOU (to ALL of us) with this update!  They heard your complaints during the wheel events about the odds, and they did something about it!

Let’s take a look at how the odds  come into play with these new prize boxes….
