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.


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!

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:


So let’s take a look at all this dialogue of facts and translation…. Continue reading

Addicts Housekeeping: Norbert’s Tasks How do I get the Globe?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Popping in really quick this evening with some info about Norbert’s task and the Globe.

A bunch of you are commenting that the game is telling you to get the Globe but you don’t know how.  You’re seeing this task:


And you can’t figure it out how to get and place the globe…so naturally you’re worried something might be wrong with your game…

Fortunately, the answer is right inside the game once you’ve finished the 7th day of Norbert’s tasks…

Here’s some dialogue that pops up when you’ve completed the last task before getting to the “globe task:


While it may be confusing, because it says “finish today’s tasks”…it just means you have 1 more day of doing all three of Norbert’s tasks and then you’ll unlock the Globe. (i.e. you’ll unlock it tomorrow (“day 8”))
