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.

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
Cornucopia Free/15 Donuts Vanity 100 New
Outdoor Feast Table Free Vanity 100 New
Stomach Staples Center Free n/a n/a New
Rusty the Clown Balloon $5,400 Vanity 440 Returning
Blinky Balloon $16,500 Vanity 790 Returning
Santa’s Little Helper Balloon $30,000 Vanity 1,070 Returning
Snowball II Balloon 15 Donuts Vanity 200 Returning
Grumple Balloon 25 Donuts Vanity 250 Returning
Stampy Balloon 40 Donuts Vanity 400 Returning
Piggly’s Super Smorg 140 Donuts Gluttony 10 New
Caged Tom Turkey 100 Donuts Vanity 100 New
Heimlich Machine 60 Donuts Vanity 100 New
Caesar’s Casino 150 Donuts Consumerism 10 Returning
Caesar’s Sign 40 Donuts Vanity 400 Returning
Truckasaurus 225 Donuts Vanity 400 New

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!  And Piggly’s Super Smorg will impact your Gluttony rating.  However, it’s important to note that the free building, Stomach Staples Center, has 0 impact on the Conform-O-Meter.

How is YOUR Conform-O-Meter doing?  What new items have you added to boost your rating?  What did you think of the Thanksgiving Event?   Are you ready for Christmas?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

  1. I finally reached 5stars on the conform-o-meter but did not recieve a 5% boost. Is there anything else that I am suppose to do?

  2. Thanks for the info! Disappointed to see that the Stomach Staple Center doesn’t add any points to the Conform-o-Meter…I was really hoping it would add to Consumerism. Oh well… Still nice to have gotten a free building!

  3. You can also use Coffee Karts (boardwalk only) or Khlav Kalash Stands to boost gluttony. I have a few hidden behind buildings.

  4. I always seem to be hovering around 4.5 stars, usually because of gluttony, might have to pick up the Hungry Hun or Piggly’s Super Smorg around Christmas

    Christmas update?

  6. Thanks for the info! Too bad the free building isn’t consumerism, or at least something on the meter. Also would have been nice if the table fell under gluttony.
