Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Ghost Pirate Airship, Ghost Zapper or Tentacle Tree?

Sorry guys this should have gone live a few hours ago!  My brain apparently needs 3 cups of coffee to function instead of the usual 2…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Halloween is back in Springfield!  Yes, the water is murky, the screen is slightly darker, monsters and minions are roaming our towns…is there anything better than Halloween in our pocket-sized towns?  Of course loads of returning content! Lots of items to drop those sprinkles on…

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us 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 Returning Ghost Pirate Airship, Ghost Zapper, or Tentacle Tree to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s 10am here on the east coast and that means it’s time for Halloween Act 2…so have at it, assuming you can get into the game of course!

Remember…this is an automatic change in your game.  Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..

Questline should start right up for you and you’ll have to do a 8hr task with Springfielders

Just what does Act 3 have in store for us?  Let’s take a look… Continue reading

Halloween Act 1 is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that Act 1 of the Halloween Event…Ends TOMORROW October 17th at 10am ET (1400 GMT)

Once the Act 1 is over you will no longer be able to earn Act 1 Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning fangs if you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Act starts…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Act. And Pickaxes will Carry Over (Relics do not)

For a rundown on everything that was included with Act 1 check out our rundown post here.

And don’t forget about our Ending Act 1 Tips

Be ready for the Act 2 to start at 1400 GMT (10am ET) tomorrow morning  (October 17th)….

Halloween 2018 How-To: Act 1 Crafting

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah the Crafting post….where I give you the how-to and break down each and every item available to craft, so you don’t miss a thing!

Love it or hate it, EA has proven over the last couple of years that crafting is here to stay.  While the prizes themselves are pretty self-explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”.  Crafting requires some self-direction.  You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly.  Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not. And, as with all things, for some events crafting is easier than others.

While we thought they finally did away with crafting after the last event, Moe’s Ark, it’s back and the same as always for THOH.  Now I know some of you still have questions so, let’s take a look…

Halloween 2018 Is Live! Act 1 Details and Rundown (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s update Wednesday!  Woohoo!  Who’s excited for all new content in TSTO?  After all that downtime (seriously was a SLOW second half of September) everyone should be excited for something…anything to hit our games!

Well…that something has arrived!  It’s officially Halloween in our pocket-sized towns!  Ghosts, goblins, werewolves, mummies, vampires and more!  Bring on the pumpkins, murky water, fall foliage and grind fest..Treehouse of Horrors here we come!

Remember this was an app store update that hit our games YESTERDAY.  So if you didn’t download the update check your app store for it now…we’ll wait.  (if you don’t see it listed in your update section try searching the store for Tapped Out)

Now on with the update, more details below the fold…

This auto starts with dialogue from Dracula, followed by a 6s task for Springfielders and a 6s task for Dracula if you have him.  After this you’ll have a 6s task for Ned…

P.S. I’ve noticed my game is very laggy…not sure if it’s just because much is initially going on or a flaw in the game.  We’ll know soon enough

Note: As always, I’ll be updating this post frequently while I play through the event myself.  So keep checking back today for all of the details on Act 1…

Treehouse of Horror XXIX Teaser Coming Later Today

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Some of you may have noticed (and some of you did in fact comment yesterday) that a little in-game update hit our games yesterday.  That little update was new content hitting the files for the Treehouse of Horror XXIX Teaser!

Yes, a teaser for the next event.  This will hit our games later today (once Super Powers is officially over).  So look for the short little questline and small content to hit our games around 10a ET today.  And a little teaser for the content can be seen in the character collections…

I’ll be back once it hits with details on the teaser itself…

Also, the new content (THOH XXIX Teaser) is slated to end on October 3rd, next Wednesday, which is very likely when we’ll see the official THOH XXIX Event!  So start getting excited for Halloween!

What do you think Halloween will bring?  Excited for it to start?  Happy with another week of downtime?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
