Happy 155th Birthday Canada!

To paraphrase the late great Canadian ice hockey radio broadcaster Foster Hewitt:
Hello, Canada, and Tapped Out fans in the United States and Newfoundland and rest of the world!

Today is Canada’s 155th Birthday! So today I am re-posting the post that went up 5 years ago for Canada’s 150th. Continue reading

Next Event Quick Spoilers!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As you may have saw from my post earlier, EA sent out the event packet to us  earlier today…and shortly after sending it said “hey it’s ok to talk about it!”.  Which of course, none of us were prepared for! (I’m still at work!)

So, I will be doing a very quick spoiler video tonight…likely without Safi unfortunately (he’s at the Blue Jays Home opener)…with all of the detailed info we generally bring you in a spoiler video.  BUT I know some of you don’t want to wait until tonight.  So what I’ve opted to do is just some quick fact cards for you guys, without my usual details, so I can get it up for you quickly!  (this of you who watch our spoiler videos will be familiar with these fact cards!)

Update: Spoiler Video Can Be Found Here

This event starts on April 13th, Wednesday, with the App Store Download available on April 12th, Tuesday.

Oh and a note…yes, some folks are currently experiencing an outage in their game.  It is not impacting everyone.  My best advice is to contact EA if you’re experiencing an outage.    

So for those of you who want to know keep on going…for those of you that don’t want to be spoiled…STOP HERE!

Again SPOILERS AHEAD…IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW, DON’T CLICK BELOW!!
