Guest Post: So You Think You Can Tap: Accumulating D’OH

Hey Howdy Hey Addicts!
To break us away from the Halloween update a little bit we decided to run a guest post from one of our readers Poisonshift.  This has some great advice for you new tappers from a new tapper (note this advice is aside from the Halloween update itself)!  Poisonshift currently runs the Addicts Forums so you can check him out over there!
Enjoy!

Hi Everybody!
“Hi Poisonshift”
As any new player may know it can be quite disheartening when you get a new mission and find out you just don’t have the money to get the ball rolling. It is all part of the game mechanics. If you notice, by the time one construction comes to a finish you’ll have enough money for the next. I understand perfectly well how you feel. It’s never nice living paycheck to paycheck. We don’t like it in life and we sure as heck-diddly don’t like doing it through entertainment. Springfield is supposed to be our escape from this droning reality, right? So why be broke?
The sad fact of the matter is this, it’s not easy to accumulate wealth. Well not from the start anyway.
I started playing at the beginning of September and I haven’t missed a day and I doubt I ever will. So you know I haven’t been playing long, I’m currently hovering over the end of level 17 and like most of you, I’m not rich but I’m not broke either. What I’m going to do is share some insight I’ve learned through game play and tidbits I’ve gleaned from the web.
Let’s do it!

What the Heck is a Donkishbroomcken?

Wow… that’s one heck of a word in the title.  Hi… Wookiee here.  Sorry about the giant word but it came to mind while writing about one of my favorite Treehouse of Horror moments.  Previously here at Addicts, the episode this came from was shown in two different posts: A pumpkin house ramble by yours truly and this great walkthrough by Alissa the Amazing.

Sad fact about being so crazy busy blogging about ghosts and gremlins and GOO (Oh my!) is that not everything covered showcases ALL the amazingness in the game.  The Suzanne quest is really funny but, for reasons only EA knows, did not show off what I consider to be her best task.  This 12 hour task brings this Wookiee joy unimaginable.

Suzanne the Witch has a 12 hour joint task with Homer which shows off one of my favorite parts of the “Scary Tales Can Come True” segment of TOH XI.

Hey Addicts, Caption This!
