Pi Day 2017 Contest Winners!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

March 14th was Pi Day and here at Addicts and who doesn’t love an excuse for pie?!  So to celebrate Pi Day 2017 we hosted a little contest, as is our tradition, where the winner wins…PIE!

So many of you entered and shared with us your favorite Pie…it made me so hungry I searched my house high and low for pie, sadly we were out. Fortunately, one lucky Addicts reader from the US won’t have that problem when they receive their pie sampler prize!

We had 2 winners for this year’s Pi Day contest, one from the US and one from outside of the US.  (due to shipping issues we could only send pie to readers inside the US…) So let’s see who the Randomizer chose….

Rommelwood Academy/St. Patrick’s Day 2017 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Tomorrow’s the day the Rommelwood Academy mini event is slated to leave our Springfield’s, so I thought now would be a good time to look back at how all of the items added (new and old) for this tie-in impact 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.

While the Rommelwood event (and St. Paddy’s Day) brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring a few new and old buildings and decorations.  So let’s take a look at how all of the “goodies” impact our rating: Continue reading

Rommelwood Academy Coming to an End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in with a friendly reminder that the Rommelwood Academy mini event is set to leave our games tomorrow morning.  So finish up that prize track.  Make sure you grab everything you’re looking at from the stores (including Gil’s Hellfish deal), because come tomorrow afternoon it’ll be gone.

Remember, once the timer runs out you’ll no longer be able to purchase the items or complete the prize track.  You won’t be able to delay the timer on this one, since it was part of an in-game update not an app store update.  So be sure to get everything you want and finish the prize track (Left, Right, Left questline) BEFORE tomorrow morning, otherwise you’ll miss out.

Need a reminder about what was included in the store for this event?  Check out the rundown post here.  In addition to the rundown post, the Hellfish will also leave tomorrow 

So what’s next?  Well if EA continues to follow their pattern of updates, we should expect to see a major (app store update required) event this week at some point.  OR they could be totally unpredictable to do another episode tie-in for Sunday’s new episode of the show.  In reality, no one (except EA) knows what’s going to happen next and when it’ll happen.  So for now let’s all just sit back, relax and wait to see what happens…

Oh and don’t forget to finish up those Rommelwood designs and submit them for our Springfield Showoff tomorrow

What were your thoughts on the Rommelwood mini event?  Ready for what’s next? What do you think we’ll see next? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
