County Fair and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Tomorrow the County Fair Mini-Event is slated to leave our Springfields, so I thought now would be a good time to look back at how all of the items added (new and old) for this mini-event 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 County Fair Mini-Event 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

County Fair Coming to an End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in with a friendly reminder that the County Fair 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 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 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.

So what’s next?¬† As we talked about many times in the comments and at lengths during the latest Addicts Live, I think we’ll see an episode tie-in this week for the Season 29 Premiere.¬† And that’ll be followed by Halloween 2017. But, in reality, no one (except EA) knows what’s going to happen next and when it’ll happen. ¬†So f, for now, t’s all just sit back, relax and wait to see what happens…

Oh and don’t forget to finish up those County Fair designs and submit them for our Springfield Showoff tomorrow.¬†

What were your thoughts on the County Fair 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!

Turbo Tappin’ County Fair 2017 Premium Stuff: Mary Spuckler and Amber Dempsey

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s nearly Fall in Springfield and of course, that means it’s time for Fall Harvest! ¬†Nothing says Fall Harvest quite like a good old County Fair! A nice relaxing way to slowly bring Springfield back to normal after the crazy music fest!

Of course, as with all events, new premium characters are in our stores! ¬†Yes, characters just tempting us to drop those donuts on (not literally of course, donuts are too delicious to be used as weapons). ¬†This event introduced two lovely young ladies to our stores…Mary Spuckler and Amber Dempsey. ¬†And naturally both came with her own questline..

So let’s take a look at those questlines now, and just what you’ll need to do to help Mary make ends meat and Amber see just how far her lashes can get her…

Where Did That Come From? – Springfield Opry House

I’m going to start by making it clear, that while this episode is almost entirely about a love relationship between Bart and Mary Spuckler, I actually saved this last WDTCF post from this Mini-Event, because I love the building that the Springfield Opry House is based upon.

I think it is interesting the way we toss around the word, “Love.” We love our significant others, we love our kids, we love our country, we love our sports teams, and we love the concept of being in love. But we also love a whole bunch of inanimate objects that don’t really return our love, as much as we shower them with affection and obsession…to the point where the kind of deep, passionate, romantic love that is actually important (along with unconditional love for one another), is watered down, by our love for stuff. But, I digress…

Where Did That Come From? County Fair – Part III – Country Fair Sign, Pavillion, and Largest Ribbon

OK.
I feel like I am getting the hang of these WDTCF posts…but readily admit that Wookie does a WAY better job, because he is clearly a WAY bigger Simpsons fan (the guy is like 6’10” or something). ¬†Don’t get me wrong…I love the show, and love the game, and actually kind of enjoy reminding myself (and you guys) where stuff from our game comes from.

But, sometimes, like this episode, and these TSTO items, they really don’t play much of a part in the original story. Like…well…almost not at all after the first 2 minutes of the episode.

But…this episode is SUPER important, for a variety of SUPER reasons…
