Shop Till You Drop: Maximizing Your Conform-O-Meter Consumerism Rating

Back with another installment of the Conform-O-Meter posts!  Recently I started breaking down what the Conform-O-Meter is and how it works.  The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provide 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.
Today I want to talk about your Consumerism Rating and what you can do to maximize it on your Conform-O-Meter….so let’s go shopping shall we?

Do More Kwik-E-Marts=More Scratch-Rs?

While I’m sure you’d love it if I said ‘Absolutely’, unfortunately you’re going to be a bit disappointed. No matter how much you want the answer to be ‘Yes’, the answer is ‘No’. You only get one Scratch-R card every 6 hours, no matter how many Kwik-E-Mart’s your Springfield is currently While initially Itchy and Scratchy will appear over all of the Kwik-E-Marts in you town, as soon as you’ve played one the Scratch-R icon disappears from all of them.

However, having more than one Kwik-E-Mart is still a good idea. It helps your consumerism (on your Conform-O-Meter) reach 5 Stars, which is extremely important if you’re looking to get the maximum Conform-O-Meter bonus. And in the end the Conform-o-meter bonus-multiplier could be worth much more than the Scratch-R pay out.
