Osaka Flu: Are You Infected?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Since the event started the Osaka Flu has been spreading through our towns faster than germs on a public drinking fountain.

So fast that over 104% of the world is infected.

2017-02-17-01-59-05

I guess that means we’ve covered Earth and we’re working on Mars now….

So I figured let’s test this out, and see if any of the Addicts readers have yet to be infected by the Osaka Flu.  Because in theory if the virus has spread to every Tapper on Earth (and some on Mars) than every Addict should have it.  So…

And as a quick reminder from this post to get the details on how Osaka works and spreads.

And remember, to level up you need to clear pins from neighbor visits to your Springfield.  So in order to level up you need neighbors to visit your Springfield.  You can add neighbors via our Add Friends thread here.

What are your thoughts on the 104%  infection spread rate?  Has Osaka invaded your Springfield? What level are you on? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Should I Spend Donuts On Royal Tokyo?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Pack your bags and prepare for an invasive screening at the airport because it’s travel time in Springfield! And while our towns are embracing their ever expanding airports, our donut bank is shrinking because there are LOADS of world items in our stores just tempting us with those sprinkles!

Wondering if you should the Royal Tokyo to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this 5 star hotel to your Springfield…

Around the World Just the Facts: Globe Facts and Mr. Sparkle Translation

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As with all events, many of you are asking for dialogue you may have missed from tapping too fast.  Usually we wait until the end of the event to post the full dialogue, but in this case we have a couple of items that need translation or you’re wondering what else you may be missing.  So in this case I thought it may be a good idea to post some of the dialogue a little earlier…

The Globe from Norbert’s Daily Tasks spits out fun facts every time you tap on it….ico_priz_aroundtheworld_norbertstasks_globe_lg

And then there’s Mr. Sparkle, who’s dialogue could use a little translation, especially when his dialogue looks like this:

Around the World 101: Crafting

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah the long awaited, Around the World Crafting post….where I give you the how tos and break down each and every item available to craft, so you don’t miss a thing!

Love it or hate it, EA has proven over the last couple of years that crafting is here to stay.  While the prizes themselves are pretty self explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”.  Crafting requires some self direction.  You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly.  Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not. And, as with all things, for some events crafting is easier than others.

Now I know some of you still have questions about what to craft, if you should craft or Level Up, what happens in future Acts…so, as we’ve done in the past, we’re here to break it all down for you.  So let’s take a look at the basics of Crafting for the entire event.
