Last Chance: Cremo Bot & Maude

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick reminder…the “Days of Future Future” Episode tie-in is sent to end tomorrow (4/15) at 3:59am EST (8:00 GMT).  So if you’re planning on, or on the fence, about purchasing ANY of the premium items (Cremo-O-Bot or Maude)..you have until 3:59AM EST (4/15/14) to make your decision and final purchase.  As that’s when it’s scheduled to end.  Does that mean they’ll leave at exactly 4AM?  Not necessarily…but do you really want to take that chance?

With DOFF ending tomorrow, does that mean we could see an update hit our games tomorrow?  We’ll have to wait and see just what EA has up their sleeves for us this week, but for now don’t miss out on picking up these items if you were thinking about it!

Will YOU make the purchase?  What did you think of Sunday’s Episode?  Did you enjoy the episode tie-in?  Sound off in the comments below…you know we LOVE hearing from you!

“Days of Future Future” Episode Tie-In and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A new Episode Tie-In has arrived in Springfield!  This Limited-Time event will only be around a short while, so make sure you get those Limited-Time decorations and buildings while they’re still around!  For a little extra incentive let’s take a look at how the new additions to Tapped Out will impact your 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 “Days of Future Future” Episode Tie-In brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring us new items to add to our Springfield.  Let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating:

Item Cost Categeory Points New/Returning
Fortune Teller Shop 150 Donuts Consumerism 10 Returning
Cremo Bot 30 Donuts Vanity 300 New

Despite this being a mini update, with only 2 new premium items, they are both beneficial items to your Conform-O-Meter.  Especially since the Fortune Teller Shop impacts the Consumerism Rating (one of the hardest to max out in the game).  It’s always nice to have an item to impact Consumerism!

FYI Homer’s Grave does not (at this time) impact the Conform-O-Meter, nor does it award a bonus.

Which Episode Tie-In  items have you purchased?  How’s your conform-o-meter doing?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
