Christmas 2014 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As Christmas nears an end in Springfield…it’s time to look back on ALL of the items that were added/at one time for sale through this update & try to make them fit somewhere in our Springfield.  Through the 4 weeks of Christmas there were 60 new/returning items available for purchase or to win…that’s a lot of stuff to fit into an already crammed Springfield!   With all of the new items  added to Tapped Out I thought now would be a good time to take a look at how all of these items impact the Conform-O-Meter ratings (especially since this might help you decide what to keep out & what to put into storage).

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 Christmas event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, level 48 did though, 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

Episode Recap: I Won’t Be Home For Christmas

Oi oi oi… how y’all doing? One of the features we like to have on the site is Episode Recaps of the newest Simpsons episodes. Of course with all the holiday goodness, we’ve fallen a little behind but with this recap, I think we’re actually caught up. You can see previous recaps here.  This one is for Season 26, Episode 9: “I Won’t Be Home For Christmas”. I know some people prefer to watch these on their own so only click more if you don’t mind SPOILERS. I know everyone can’t watch them so sometimes reading them can be a nice replacement. Also fun to see what others took away from an episode.
