Tap Ball 101: The Amateur Shop (Acts 2 and 3)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Tap Ball is sweeping the streets of Springfield and the players are bringing in the bucks!  Amateur Bucks that is!   So what can you do with all those Amateur Bucks you’re earning? Spend them at, what else, the Amateur Shop of course!

The Amateur Shop is basically the crafting option for this event.  Except instead of having to collect multiple items to craft 1 thing, you only need to collect Amateur Bucks (ico_june2015_amateurbucks_md).  So it’s like crafting and shopping in one.  If you have enough Amateur Bucks to buy something, you can.

So now let’s go over all of the options in the Amateur Shop for Acts 2 and 3 (you can review the options for Act 1 here) and break down all of the “goodies” you can pick up with your Bucks…

Initially launched in October 2013, Community Prizes was another aspect of events designed to get the Tapped Out Community to work together for a goal, in each case the goal was a group of prizes.  They were short lived though, as we only saw them for Halloween 2013 and Christmas 2013 (You can check out details from Halloween here and details from Christmas here).  After that EA tried a bunch of different methods to engage people in the games, but there were always cries for Community Prizes to return.  So now those long time Tappers have their wish and they’re back!

Of course being that they were only around for the last two major events in 2013, I know many of today’s Tappers have no clue what they are, how they work, or what the heck is going on.  I also know that the numbers can seem overwhelming, they always have.  So let’s break down the ins and outs of Community Prizes and how exactly they work for this event….
