Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder to you all…it looks like the Thanksgiving update is set to end tomorrow (12/2/14)..the official end time that we see is 0800GMT (3am EST).    Could this mean Christmas will be arriving to TSTO?  Who knows what EA has up their sleeves, but what we can tell you is once the Thanksgiving event is over…it’s over.  That means all of those limited-time decorations, buildings and characters that you haven’t purchased, will *poof* disappear!

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 (It’ll be gone be December 2nd), 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.
