Super Safi’s Stats & Strategy Special: Minigames – Bigclaw!

Salutations Senors, Senoras, Senoritas, Statisticians & Strategists,

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter ‘S’)

Hi, I’m Super Safi and you may remember me from such stats and strategy posts as KEM Farming and the advanced losing-to-win Superheroes battle strategy.

What better way to spend your time than talking math. So from time-to-time, I’ll come to you with a post that delves into the wonderful world of numbers, stats, and/or strategies.

While we’ve previously discussed Springfield Downs and the Go Kart Track a couple months ago, this month we’ll continue to look at most of the Minigames found within our game. After discussing Conquer The Eliminator yesterday, we continue our journey today with Bigclaw!

Springfield Showoff: Places of Worship

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we find ourselves sometimes forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU. So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Most Dangerous Game/Thanksgiving 2016 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Most Dangerous Game/Thanksgiving Event released a bunch of items into our Springfields.  Everything from hunting stores to Bunny throwers to Indian Casinos to Giant Parade Balloons!  So let’s take a look at how these new and old items impact our Conform-O-Meter…

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 Thanksgiving event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring a bunch of buildings and decorations.  So let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating: Continue reading

Black Friday Breakdown…Sunday’s Specials

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Black Friday rebate event is in full swing, where every hour starting Friday and running until very early Monday morning, another item will appear in the shops to purchase for a rebated donut price!  Today we saw (or we’ll see) 12 items appear in our stores with a sweet donut rebate attached to them, and tomorrow morning at 3am ET, 8am GMT, we’ll see 12 new items appear in our stores with donut rebates!

As I promised I would do in our Black Friday Rebate Reveal Post, I’m going to breakdown each item for you the day before they’re set to appear in the stores.  So you can make a decision on what you’d like to buy and be prepared to grab it.  You can check out the posts for Today’s deals (Saturday), which I posted yesterday here. 

Here’s where you’ll find the quick links to the previous Should I Buy Posts on each item, as well as my current opinion on each item. Just remember…it’s all about what you like and want in your Springfield.  There may be something that you love, that I hate.  That’s how the world works.  So get what you like because, you like it…

Now on with the list!

Here’s the breakdown for the items that will appear TOMORROW Sunday, November 27th starting at 3am ET, 8am GMT (the Final Round)
