Should I Spend Donuts On Gil’s Ice Cream Truck Deal? (Ice Cream Man Homer)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

BEFORE I get into the details of the Gil deal…let me remind you.  If you’re STILL missing donuts.  Contact EA.  If the first rep doesn’t refund your donuts, try again and get someone else.  Be persistent and stay on top of them for it.  LOADS of readers have had their donuts refunded to them by contacting EA.  If they didn’t succeed the first time they tried again.  I know it sucks having your donuts missing, but they can be restored/refunded.  You just have to contact EA.  Please don’t complain in the comments about missing donuts if you haven’t even tried to get them back from EA.  You have to be a little proactive and persistent with this…stay on top of them until your donuts are refunded.  Here’s the link to contact EA:

And now onto the specs of Gil Deal…..

Gil arrived back in Springfield yesterday afternoon, and brought us all a little summer treat!  Cause nothing says summer like ice cream and the ice cream man, right?

So the Gil Deal this time around consists of the Ice Cream Truck and Ice Cream Man Homer costume.  For 120 donuts both could be yours!

Level 55 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 55 arrived in Springfield a couple of weeks ago and with it arrived Unky Herb and Declan Desmond, as well as some new buildings & decorations to help improve our Conform-O-Meters!

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.
