Should I Spend Donuts on the Magic Monorail Returning Items?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A little magic popped into Springfield yesterday, in the form of the Magic Monorail Station.  With it a few returning items magically returned to our stores…just asking us to drop our sprinkles.

Of course with that limited-time label, it can be tempting to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Ray Patterson, Jesse Grass, the Self-Reliant House, the Monorail Cafe, Krusty’s Drive-Thru Station, the Golf Course or the Mechanical Ants to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well looks like the Season Premiere tie-in may be doing a little magical teasing for the upcoming Halloween Event! EA dropped a Magical Monorail station in our games, in an apparent attempt to give us a little Halloween teaser…and, of course, to get us to drop some sprinkles!

Should I Spend Donuts On the Discounted and Returning Premium Rommelwood/St. Paddy’s Items?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Two little “events” going on in Springfield right now.  One is education…military education..inspired. And the other is seasonal, as today is St. Patrick’s Day. Of course any update (no matter how small) these days means premium content is back in our stores from events past, and often with a discounted price tag.

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add any of the Rommelwood or St. Patrick’s Day discounted or returning premium items to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this throwbacks to your Springfield…

“22 for 30” and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Tomorrow’s the day the “22 for 30” episode tie-in 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 “22 for 30” tie-in 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
