Turbo Tappin’ Level 49: Michael D’Amico, Raking in the Cabbage

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ooo a new Level!  We’ve got our first new level of 2015 and TSTO and despite it featuring minor characters, it’s still a great level update!  The questline is hilarious and makes you wonder just what really is in Gazpacho.  ;)

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 49!

As we mentioned in the Level 49 rundown post the main questline is started by Agnes Skinner, and her desire for some “organized muscle” to clean up Springfield.  This prompts you to build the D’Amico Summer Home, and wait 24hrs while it builds.

And for those that really don’t like spoilers (of any kind) here’s a quick list of who to keep free for each part…

Part 1- Agnes
Part 2- Michael, Luigi
Part 3- Fat Tony, Luigi, 10 Springfielders
Part 4- Legs, Louie
Part 5- Luigi, Michael
Part 6- Louie, Build
Part 7- Fat Tony, Legs, Louie, Michael
Part 8- Michael
Part 9- Michael, Legs, Loue
Part 10- Wiggum

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

Add Friends and Neighbor-eenos!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Christmas has been over in Springfield for quite some time & Bunny and Wookiee have been on me to start a new Add Friends Feed.  The old one was over 1700 comments & it’s time to start fresh again.  Of course I was trying to hold off until the next event hit (which hopefully is coming soon)…BUT with Level 49 hitting our devices this week I don’t think it’ll be in the next few days.  Sooo…with that long intro…it’s officially time to start fresh with a new Add-Me thread!

So now…hit up this post with your Origin ID’s and Add Me Requests!  Who wants to be first?

Pssssst….If you’re looking for a thread to find neighbor-eenos who WON’T vandalize you check out this Add-Me page…now Graffiti free! :)

And remember…if you’re looking for ways you can THANK your neighbors for visiting, tell them you LOVE their designs…or even yell at them for stealing your designs…you can hit up our THANK YOU Thread!  The only place in the TSTO-verse where you can freely Thank and Admire your TSTO Friends and Neighbors!

So now it’s time to see which neighbor is going to make you an offer you can’t refuse!

Tapped Out Premium Walkthroughs: Greta Wolfcastle

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
