Clash of Clones and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Springfield has gone Medieval and Barbarians, Nerds & Castles have taken over the streets (and much in demand land), as the Clash of Clones Event is in full swing!   With all of the new items added to Tapped Out with the event I thought now would be a good time to take a look at how all of these items impact the Conform-O-Meter ratings.

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 Clash of Clones 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: Continue reading

Where Did THAT Come From – BBQ Pig

“You don’t win friends with salad… you don’t win friends with salad… you don’t win friends with salad…”

Oh hey there friends? How’s life? Just enjoying yet another great Simpsons episode courtesy of new stuff in Level 45. With the newest level, EA brought us a new premium decoration for 60 donuts. Provided you’re at level 45, this new beauty adds a 2.5% bonus to your XP and cash earnings. That all well and good but you may be asking where did the BBQ Pig come from?

Sunday Night Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Here we are…..SEASON 26 PREMIERE NIGHT!!! And just how are my favorite addicted Tappers doing on this beautiful September night?  Have a great weekend?  Ready for all new Simpsons tonight??

Anyway enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  Nope it’s not time to boogie woogie oogie all night long (although if you do take photos for us)!  Nope it’s time for another Sunday Night Open Thread!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So…here is your Sunday Night Open Thread.  Finally, after 4 lonnnggg months The Simpsons are back!!  What will happen in tonight’s episode?  Who will die?   How will our episode tie-in items play into the episode? AND a little bonus Simpsons right after with the Family Guy/Simpsons crossover event!  No baseball tonight, as the playoffs are set.  Did you team make it?  Sunday Night Football features the Saints vs. the Cowboys….will you be watching?

So chat about the Simpsons…and for this one night only Family Guy too….MLB, NFL, TSTO Updates, Halloween Speculation or anything else you can think of!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!


Best Simpsons Episodes…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s premiere night for The Simpsons!  We’ve waited ALLLLLL summer long and now we’ll FINALLY know who gets killed off in tonight’s episode!

Every time premiere time rolls around, for any show, I always get to thinking about my favorite episodes & what makes the show so great.  Before tonight’s Season 26 premiere, there are currently 552 episodes of The Simpsons!  That’s a LOT of Simpsons history!  Trying to go through it all can make your head spin!


Well the folks over at Vulture did the hard work already!  As part of their Simpsons Week they complied a list of the best 100 episodes of The Simpsons.  It’s a crazy list and full of AWESOME Simpson episodes, many I completely forgot about!

Check out their full list here.  It’s a great mix of episodes from ALL seasons, not just the first 10.  Here’s a peek at some of the great episodes that made the list: Continue reading

Weekend Update: September 21st – 27th

I said a hip hop,
Hippie to the hippie,
The hip, hip a hop, and you don’t stop, a rock it
To the bang bang boogie, say, up jump the boogie,
To the rhythm of the boogie, the beat.

Man all this hip n hoppin around can’t be good on my joints. Lol

From the Mouth of a Tapped Out Writer….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ever wonder what goes into creating an update for TSTO?  Wonder where they come up with all the dialogue for these updates and just who’s writing them? Curious about what goes on in those writer rooms?  Well found out all of that and more in a recent article they ran all about TSTO!  i-0a433ff25a95c1f847838b474a0c732c-Homer_Simpson
