Turbo Tappin’ Premium Stuff: 2014 Yard Sale

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’ve almost reached the final week of the 2014 Yard Sale and soon all those Limited-Time items will disappear once again!  So don’t forget you have until August 4th to make your final purchases & then they’re gone!  Looking for a little guidance on what to get, or if you should get anything?  We’ve got a bunch of Should I Buy Posts for you here…

All Things Mayan
Yard Sale Skins

The neat thing about many of these items is that they come with a questline…or at least some mini dialogue.  I know many of you have been asking about these questlines & just what’s involved.  And since there’s no time like the present, let’s break them all down for you now.

  1. With only a couple days left of the Yard Sale, I think I got everything I wanted to get from it now. Being this is my first Yard Sale, should I expect anything new to drop in the game immediately after the Yard Sale? I realize only EA knows for sure, but from Yard Sales in the past, should we be expecting something or is it likely to be a little lull before the next event or new offerings from EA? The reason I am asking is that I want to buy some non-limited time premium items, but I don’t know if I should do it now or wait until August 4th or 5th to see if there is something new coming from EA that I may want to reserve my current donuts for or not.

    • All we can do right now is follow a pattern. Pattern shows when one ends…something usually begins. I assume Tuesday or Wednesday something else will be triggered into the game (about every 2 weeks), but don’t quote me on that. 😉

      • Thanks. I did buy part of what I am going purchase. It was the cannon, you can probably guess the other part now. Perhaps I will just stick a bone in my hair and wait it out and see what, if anything, drops after this Yard Sale.

    Are there very many outside tasks associated with the Mayan combo? You might have just swayed me LOL.

    • Josephine Kick@$$

      Nebbermind… just read your SIB on it… if Marge had some more outside tasks that were less than 8 hrs, I prob would have gone for it. O wail 😉

  3. The Cool Brown House convinced me to buy some Donuts. I got the house, Bumblebee Man, and George & his cherrytree. I also got the channel 6 van and the satellite dish. Really happy with it.

    I already had fr Sean, so its great he’s premium now. I’m saving the rest of my little donuts for an update in the future. I took a screen of my house, I hope you like it!


    • I think Cool Brown House got a lot of players to pull the trigger. You made some great purchases! And your house looks great! 🙂

  4. I bought the Cool Brown House thinking that’s all I was getting… Cool Homer was a pleasant surprise! I love his “showing off his fixie” task… soo funny.

  5. CapCityGoofball

    Was hoping the Cool Homer quest was longer. At least he has some awesome outside tasks!

  6. i just want Mayan Marge, Ninja Homer and the Sparkle Billboard! 🙂

  7. Still hoping against hope for a surprise price drop on the cool brown house, being the cheapskate that I am.. I will be waiting til the last minute to drop my precious sprinklies on it 😉

  8. Hi. I wish EA would have offered Fat Tony’s limo. Is there any chance that will ever happen?

  9. FYI you forgot whacking day homer…
