Build Bunny’s Town- The Beginning

Addicts Asylum Patient Zero here…back with another one of my “hare”-brained schemes. I have decided to blow up my town and start from scratch. Again. Lol. Crazy, right? Well…it gets worse (or better depending how you look at it). I am putting my town in YOUR hands. Yes…YOU…the Readers. Scared now? I know I am. 😛

PICK ME READER… I’M EVER SO SMART.

I believe it says in the good book, The Geek shall inherit the Earth or something like that.  Well, if that’s true… this post is all about a character waiting for one heck of an inheritance.  Hello there Addicts, Wookiee back with another character post.  For this one, I decided it was only right to embrace my nerd roots and write about the Uber nerd himself, BEHOLD… EXELSIOR… Martin Prince, Jr.

Should I Spend Donuts on the Pow-Wow Casino Sign?

Thanksgiving has arrived in Springfield!  But, with all of the new Thanksgiving premium items that are limited-time it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Pow-Wow Casino Sign to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this to your Springfield.
caesarspowwowcasinosign_menu
Decoration: Pow-Wow Casino Sign
Donut Price: 40 donuts
Unique?: Yes
Bonus: 2% (bonus cash and XP to all tasks)
Bonus % Per Donut Spent: 0.05%
Conform-o-Meter Points: 300 Vanity  
Where Can I Place It?: Can be placed on your main Springfield only (ie Grass and Pavement)

Final Thought: The bonus rate on this is quite high, and definitely one of the higher bonus rates per donut spent in the game.  However, it is a sign for the Indian Casino.  So if you don’t plan on purchasing the Pow-Wow Casino (check out the should I buy here) my advice would be to skip this one.  However, if you do purchase the Pow-Wow Casino this will make a nice addition to the building.

What do you think?  Will you be paying 40 donuts for the Pow Wow Casino Sign?  Will you be purchasing the Pow-Wow Casino?

2D- Rachel’s T.A.R.D.I.S.

Did you all miss me? NO?! Oh…fine then. 😛

I started making 2D art in my town from being inspired by the cool and different things I saw in other neighbors during the Whacking Day Event in May when I started. I loved the thought of creating and designing one of a kind things to make my town stand out from the rest.

Here I am months later, still enjoying the creative process of challenging myself to make something recognizable out of silly items like mailboxes, stop signs, and dumpsters. Makes me giggle just saying that. Now though, I am more wanting to help and hope to inspire others to start on their own creative path. I LOVE seeing art from all my neighbors. Watching them learn and grow just like I did. Love seeing designs come to life within their towns.

Should I Spend Donuts on- The Mayflower

With all of the new Thanksgiving premium items it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Mayflower to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this store to your Springfield.

themayflower_menuDecoration: Mayflower
Donut Price: 100 Donuts
Unique?: Yes

Pros:
-3.00% bonus money and XP to all Jobs.
-The sound of canons firing when you tap on it. The flags whipping in the wind.
-A GIANT SHIP FOR YOUR SQUIDPORT!!! EEEEEEEEEE!

Cons:
-Not associated with any characters or tasks.
-Fairly expensive for only a 3.00% increase to your overall net.

Final Thought:
I personally just REALLY like just the look of it and that for me is reason enough to buy it. However, If you’re saving your donuts for something with more options and “bang for your buck”, save them for something else (Casino comes with a character and tasks). So unless you’re a completest or you want a giant ship for your Squidport, I think you would want to wait to buy this as EA lists it as a “NEW” item and not limited. So you have time to think.

Thanksgiving and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Thanksgiving has arrived in Springfield!  This Limited-Time event will only be around a short while (we’re guessing it’ll be gone by December 1st), so make sure you get those Limited-Time decorations and buildings while they’re still around!  For a little extra incentive let’s take a look at how the new additions to Tapped Out will impact your Conform-O-Meter.
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 Thanksgiving 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:

Item Cost Category Points New/Returning
Caesar’s Pow-Wow Indian Casino 150 Donuts Consumerism 10 New
Caesar’s Pow-Wow Sign 40 Donuts Vanity 400 New
Mayflower* 100 Donuts Vanity  1,000 New
Rusty Balloon $5,400 Vanity 440  New
Poochie Balloon $20,000 Vanity 870  New
Stampy Balloon 40 Donuts Vanity 400 New
Grumple Balloon 25 Donuts Vanity 250 New
Scratchy Balloon $1,000 Vanity 180 Returning
Blinky Balloon $16,500 Vanity 790 Returning
Santa’s Little Helper Balloon $30,000 Vanity 1,070 Returning
Snowball 2 Balloon 15 Donuts Vanity 200 Returning
Itchy Balloon 30 Donuts Vanity 400 Returning

*Note: We believe the Mayflower is not a limited-time item.  
Because it is a very decoration heavy event, just about every item impacts your vanity rating.  However, the Indian Casino will impact your Consumerism Rating (one of the hardest to max out in the game).  It’s always nice to have a NEW building to impact Consumerism!
