Super Safi’s Stats & Strategy Special: Minigames – Scratch-R!

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, over the next few weeks, we’ll continue to look at most of the Minigames found within our game. After discussing Claw Machine yesterday, we continue our journey today with the Scratch-R!

Diary of a Wookiee: Krustyland in Hollywood

What’s up friends?

So, I don’t know how it happened, but it seems like I suddenly have become the theme park correspondent of this site.  Some awesome coincidences (what I like to think of as blessings) have given me the opportunity to visit not only Springfield at Universal Studios Orlando but also the version in Hollywood.  (for my post about Orlando, click here) Continue reading

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.

Tapped Out Walkthrough: Tutorial (Game Start-Level 5)


Quests start right after the video of Homer blowing up Springfield Ends
-Square One
All dialogue spoke by Homer here:
“Hello, anybody here? Huh.  I guess it’s true what they say about atomic blasts—the safest place to be is ground zero. I wonder where my loving family is…and Bart.  Task book is then highlighted.  Whoa, whoa – if there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s when you open books, bad things happen”
Prompted to build the Simpson House, 6 seconds.

Homer: “Lisa!  Thank God you’re here to guide me through this tutorial.”
Lisa: “ What happened?”
Homer: “Difficult to say sweetie.  The town blew up, I built our house and you showed up.  All we know for sure is, I’m completely blameless.”
Lisa: “Hmm.  Maybe if we keep building things, Mom and Bart will show up too.”
Homer: “I’m sure they will.  This thing would be way too sad if they didn’t”
Lisa: “Then let’s do it.  But first, we should clean this place up a bit.”
Homer: “You’re joking right?”

Springfield Cleaners Pt. 1 Despite his objections, Homer cleans up some of the debris left by the explosion (6 seconds – don’t make him clean up everything – just one piece is enough for this stage.)

Springfield Cleaners Pt. 2 Lisa joins in the Springfield clean up (6 seconds, Lisa finds a donut)

Lisa: “Hey, I found a donut!”
Homer: “It looks like one of the donuts from the break room.”
Lisa: “It must have been irradiated when the plant blew up.  Now it has the power to locally speed up time…as well as to buy things, for some reason.”

The New Evergreen Terrace Pt. 1 Build a road (prompted by Lisa)

Who Needs the Kwik-E-Mart Build the Kwik-E-Mart (prompted by Homer.  Note: you’re asked to use some of your donuts to speed this up)
