Tapped Out Event Walkthroughs: King-Size Homer

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Thanksgiving Event hit our devices recently and a fun little event rolled out with it.  An event filled with a series of prizes, with the final prize being King-Size Homer!  Of course King-Size Homer comes with his very own questline, something to keep you playing after you unlock all the prizes…

While we’ve had the Turbo Tappin’ version of the questline up for a while now, we know some of you like the full dialogue versions just in case you missed something while tapping along.  So let’s take a look at the full dialogue version of King-Size Homer’s questline now…

Thanksgiving 2015 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Thanksgiving has arrived in Springfield!  This Limited-Time event will only be around a short while (It’ll be gone be December 1st), so make sure you get those Limited-Time decorations and buildings while they’re still around!  For a little extra incentive 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 Thanksgiving event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring us a bunch of new items to add to our Springfield.  Let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating: Continue reading

TSTO Black Friday 2015 Deals to Come

Update: In your games you can see what’s to come, when it unlocks and for how long.  That’s a good guide for what’s available over the next 2 days.  However, keep in mind MORE stuff will hit (That’s not currently showing) on Monday 11/30.  There will be something that’s new, for those players (like Ryan) that have everything…and then there will be some returning items (from events past).  (but Springfield Falls will NOT be returning for those holding out hope)
My best advice is if there’s something you’ve been wanting now is the time to get it.  Some of you may be holding out for the returning stuff…but don’t hold out too long.  You don’t want to miss your chance to get something you’ve been wanting.  We’ll post a list of what’s returning from Events past on another post, just so we don’t have spoilers here for those that don’t want them.
Thanks for your patience guys and thanks for helping each other in the comments.  This really is an awesome community 🙂  -Alissa

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Hope everyone had an enjoyable Turkey Day…or average Thursday.  Personally we had a crazy eventful day that ended up with a certain Tiny Addict way over stimulated and lots of day time sleep missing.  Hopefully that means she’ll get some good sleep tonight though! (you can check out photos of Miss. Riley dressed for Turkey Day here)

Anywho…it looks like EA will be doing some Black Friday Deals tomorrow (11/27)…and because we’ve got a lot going on here tomorrow I wanted to give you guys a place where you could discuss the deals with each other (I’ll do my best to approve comments ASAP on this thread).  Here’s some basic info from EA via their Facebook…

2015-11-27 03.55.35 2015-11-27 03.55.41

So similar to last year, it looks like these will be hourly deals.  With new items unlocking each hour.

Tomorrow (Friday) is a day filled with my husband and I decorating our house for Christmas and celebrating “Friendsgiving” with some close friends of ours.  So I will try to get on here at some point tomorrow morning and give you guys a list of what’s coming and when…but for now consider this post a place to share information about the items with each other.  Community involvement 🙂

Remember you can view Should I Buys for all existing items in the store here…

Hey Howdy Hey Turkey Tappers!

It’s finally Turkey Day here in the US!  And you know what that means…Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Apple and Pumpkin pie, football, stretchy pants and insane sales at the mall!  You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always check out the details of the Thanksgiving Event here) as we take the day to celebrate the holiday with our families.

However, we couldn’t let a day dedicated to being thankful go by without a special THANK YOU to YOU…our AMAZING readers!  We are so thankful for each and every one of you that take the time to read our posts and comment.  So from Wookiee, Bunny and myself…THANK YOU!!  You guys rock and we couldn’t do this without you!

Here at Addicts we’ve all been blessed in so many ways and we hope you have too.  (and I think many of you know what I’m most thankful for today…and yes she’s all dressed up in Turkey Day attire today)  In that spirit we’d like you to take a moment and let us know in the comments below what you’re thankful for this Thanksgiving.  We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Happy Thanksgiving Tappers (whether you celebrate or not, we all celebrate through TSTO)!
