Should I Spend Donuts on the Magic Monorail Station?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well looks like the Season Premiere tie-in may be doing a little magical teasing for the upcoming Halloween Event! EA dropped a Magical Monorail station in our games, in an apparent attempt to give us a little Halloween teaser…and, of course, to get us to drop some sprinkles!

Of course with that limited-time label, it can be tempting to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Magic Station to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Magical platform to your town…

Of course with that limited-time label, it can be tempting to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

This will be followed by 4hr tasks for the kids of Springfield…

Back with more as I go through it…More details, including the questline, below

Remember this is an in-game update, but you won’t see it unless you’ve downloaded the removal update for Around the World that hit App Stores yesterday.  And no, this hasn’t fixed the missing tourists yet…

Episode Recap: “Havana Wild Weekend” (S28:E7)

Wookiee taking a break from schoolwork again to keep up with episode recaps. I know I haven’t been around a ton but at a minimum, my goal is to keep these current. Who says a walking carpet can’t balance research papers and watching TV. Obviously not this fuzzball. SOmehow I’m still up to date. One of the features we like to have on this site is recaps of new Simpsons episodes for all our friends who can’t watch them immediately or like our silly reviews of them. I love when there are new episodes of the Best. Show. Ever. on TV and it’s my privilege to not only watch new episodes, which I would do with or without this awesome site, but then break them down for all of you. It’s also nice to have a break from research papers and historiography essays plus all the reading and brain-sucking tedium.  I stuck to the stream of consciousness format for this. Basically I watch the episode once for my enjoyment and then a couple more times slowly to catch as much as I can while jotting down notes. Even better this episode included a TSTO tie-in so I’m super curious about it. Without further ado… here’s my thoughts on Season 28, Episode 7 “Havana Wild Weekend.”

Episode Recap: The Marge-ian Chronicles

Hey hey friends! Don’t call it a comeback… I’ve been here for years… literally. So school has ended and I’m back and at my usual antics with another episode recap for my favorite Addicts. This episode, Season 27, Episode 16: “The Marg-ian Chronicles”, was a lot of fun because of the episode tie-in for TSTO. How cool is it that we knew more about the episode before it aired on March 13th, 2016? I love looking for things we saw before all the non-TSTO players. Anyhoo… one of the features we like to have on this site is recaps of new Simpsons episodes for all our friends who can’t watch them immediately or like our silly reviews of them. I love when there are new episodes of the Best. Show. Ever. on TV. It’s my privilege to not only watch new episodes, which I would do with or without this awesome site, but then break them down for all of you. I apologize for the delay with all of these but consider it some fun for the break where there are no new episodes. Special thanks to Robobot for covering a couple in the interim. I wish I had more time sometimes for the site but blogging doesn’t feed the kiddos so school it is.Without further ado… here’s my thoughts. If you’re not used to the style, it’s basically stream of consciousness style while I watch the episode live. Paragraph breaks usually indicate new scenes. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did writing about it.

Episode Tie-In Update: Season 27 Premiere Every Man’s Dream (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Of course I’ve been watching the game and the files all day…and when I take a break to listen to The Michael Kay Show talk about Yogi Berra, that’s when EA drops the episode tie-in (we’ve all been expecting) into our devices…

So…it’s Fall and that means and an all new season of The Simpsons will be starting up soon…which of course means, Episode Tie-Ins are back! For those of you that are newer to TSTO, Episode Tie-Ins are small updates that hit our games occasionally that tie-in with an upcoming episode of The Simpsons. Great way to get content from an upcoming show into our games!

Anywho…this one will auto-start with some dialogue between Marge and Homer.  I’ll be back with some more details in just a bit…

“Mathlete’s Feat” Episode Tie-In/Money Mountain and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We recently saw two mini-events hit our games, an episode tie-in for “Mathlete’s Feat” and Mr. Burn’s Money Mountain.  So 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 “Mathlete’s Feat” Episode Tie-In and Money Mountain 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  Category Points
Anti-Gutenberg 3000 Free Obedience 10
Holo-Flag 15 Donuts Vanity 250
Waverly Hills Elementary 115 Donuts Obedience 10
Burn’s Money Mountain 5,500,000 (Total) Vanity 420

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

Tapped Out Walkthroughs: Covercraft Episode Tie-In

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In the midst of all the Turkey talk in Springfield, we’ve got another little crisis going on…King Toot’s has closed down!

In an episode tie-in for this week’s Simpsons episode, “Covercraft”, it’s reveled that King Toot’s as shut down due to a “disagreement” with Moe, his long time neighbor.  Of course that’s all we get of the story…as they naturally want us to tune into The Simpsons on Sunday night to see what happens.  BUT we do get another musically inspired building, one that Lisa refuses to use!  Of course to get the rest of the story you’ll have to fork over some donuts and purchase the premium Guitar Central building.

Curious about what happens next?  Wondering if you should fork over the donuts? (Should I buy here) Curious if Lisa will be able to play her Sax-a-ma-phone if she can’t find a reed?  Well we’ve got you covered with the Covercraft walkthrough!  So check out the details of who to keep free, and when, and follow along with the story….if you’re not ready to fork over the donuts!
