Turbo Tappin’ Level 48: Janey, A “Friend” for Lisa

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah that new level smell!  Is there anything better than a fresh new level in TSTO?  Wait.  There is.  A fresh new level hitting in the middle of an event!  Always something to do in TSTO…and it’s AWESOME!

So now that there’s a new Level in our tapping devices, you know what that means right?  Time for another Turbo Tappin!  So with that let’s jump right in and Turbo Tap the Main Questline (Freemium) of Level 48!

As we mentioned in the Level 48 rundown post the main questline is started by Lisa, and her need for friend to finally join her in Springfield.  Even if that friend…is really just an acquaintance.  This prompts you to build Gold Navy, and wait 24hrs while it builds.  So now….let’s get to Tappin’ shall we?!

Should I Buy….Christmas Rewind! (Part 1)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The snow in Springfield is falling and friends are calling…oh wait.  Anyway, the snow is Springfield is falling and the store is full of premium items from Christmas past!  It’s like 2 of Ebeneezer’s 3 ghosts are visiting us, as we’ve got premium items of Christmas past & Christmas present in our stores.

As with Christmases 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 for phase 1 of Christmas, Santa’s Village, Christmas Frink’s Lab, Christmas Krabappel’s Apartment, Christmas Muntz House, Christmas Volcano Lair, Clasu Co., Egg Nog Bar, Santa’s Workshop..and just added today (12/12) The Grumple and Ebenzer Burns.  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 Christmas Should I Buy reboot post!

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