“Married to the Blob” Episode Tie-In and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A new Episode Tie-In has arrived in Springfield!  This Limited-Time event will only be around a short while (we’re guessing it’ll be gone by January 14th), 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 “Married to the Blob” Episode Tie-In 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 Categeory Points New/Returning
Mr. Sparkle Billboard 30 Donuts Consumerism 10 New
Swanky Fish 90 Donuts Gluttony 10 Returning

Despite this being a mini update, with only 2 new premium items, they are both beneficial items to your Conform-O-Meter.  Especially since the Mr. Sparkle Billboard impacts the Consumerism Rating (one of the hardest to max out in the game).  It’s always nice to have a NEW itme to impact Consumerism!

Which Episode Tie-In  items have you purchased?  Let us know in the comments below or post a photo to our Flickr photo stream!
