Blargsgiving Mini-Event is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow (Wednesday, December 2nd) marks the end of the Blargsgiving mini-event!  So,  if you haven’t already, finish up that prize track, purchase your last few premium items, and be prepared to see the mini-event leave our games tomorrow morning!

Note: Christmas/Winter and SNOW will likely be arriving soon.  So if you want to do some designing in your Springfield while it’s still green make sure you do it soon before the snow arrives.  Otherwise, you’ll be waiting until January…

And a note about the tokens. Do not assume they’ll carry over to another event.  Use them now or lose them.  The tokens earned with this event are only valid for the 2020 Gold Mystery Box, and won’t be valid for a future Mystery Box.  Visually they look like a standard token, but they’re coded to only be valid for the 2020 Gold Mystery Box.  So DO NOT try to carry them over thinking you can use them on another box.  If you’re done with the Gold Box just convert to donuts.

What are your overall thoughts on the mini-event?  Have you enjoyed it?  Or did you feel like it was a bit lame?  Where have you placed the prizes? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

P.S. I’m going to give one more reminder about the Blargsgiving/Thanksgiving/Black Friday Showoff!  Please send in your submissions by 8pm ET tonight to be included with tomorrow’s Showoff Post.  

Black Friday 2019 Mystery Box Round-Up- The Gold Box

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The other day I broke down the items in all of the Mystery Boxes for donuts…now it’s time to breakdown the items for tokens in the Gold Box.

This one’s a pretty big deal, because to get a bulk of tokens you’ll need to actually spend money on donuts.  So it’s important to know which items are ONLY in the Gold Box, and which items can be found in the Yearbook Mystery Box.  So here’s the complete rundown of the Gold Box…

Black Friday 2019 Mystery Box Round-Up (Creatures to Men)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As promised in the rundown post, here’s the list of what’s inside each Mystery Box.  Also noted are if the items are in the Yearbook Box or if they’re duplicated in another box for a lower cost.

There’s A LOT of details in the post, so I’m just going to get right to it…

(Also, there was no simple way to do this on my end, so this post took a TON of time to put together.  So, please don’t expect/demand I write a post like this for every single mystery box that hits the game in the future.)

Thanksgiving 2018 Prize Breakdown: Minnie and her Fight Animation

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

No matter where you live, it’s still Thanksgiving in Springfield! As the Thanksgiving mini-event nears the end, it’s time to break down the prizes.  Since the Thanksgiving mini-event is always full of a TON of content (Black Friday sales especially), I thought this year I’d break the prize breakdowns into two posts.  One, that can be found here, for the buildings and decorations and another, this one, for Minnie and the animation.

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the Blood is Thinner Than Gravy questline, you’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

So let’s take a look at Minnie and her animation…

Black Friday 2018 Should I Buy Round-Up Part 2: Women to Gold

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So typically when it comes to a Mystery Box I lay out all of the details for each box in a separate post, however, Black Friday brought us SIXTEEN total boxes and a whole lotta stuff inside of each one! So to do an individual post on each box seems a little crazy, at least to me.  (especially since it’s nearly Thanksgiving and I’ve got a ton of stuff to prepare)

So rather than do my typical Mystery Box post, for each box, I’ve decided to do two big posts.  Each post will cover 8 boxes, their contents will be linked to a previous post and next to each item I’ll include the original donut cost (if applicable).  This will help you get a sense of what’s inside and what the value of each item is.

Since you can’t pick and choose what to buy from each box, you’ll have to make your own decisions based on what you like/want and what you can afford to spend.  Hopefully, the linked posts (and original costs) will help you make that decision.

So here we go with the second (and final) round of boxes, everything from women to gold!

Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Thanksgiving Content?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Gooble Gobble Tappers!  It’s nearly Turkey Day here in America…where our favorite yellow family is located…which means time for an all-new mini event themed around Turkey! Or in this case…not eating Turkey.  Of course all new anything in Springfield means there are items back in our stores…just asking us to drop our 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 any of this returning content 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…

In-Game Update: Thanksgiving 2016 (The Most Dangerous Game)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As I predicted yesterday, the Thanksgiving mini update has arrived!

ned_hunt_for_turkeys_active_1 200px-Tapped_Out_Turkey

Note: If you have not yet downloaded the Halloween Removal Update from the App Store (which arrived yesterday), you will need to do that before you can see the Thanksgiving event…

Things get started in Springfield with some Auto-Dialogue from Brockman followed by a series of tasks (6s) to get things going.  Task order is Homer; Cletus (and Homer); Flanders, Cletus & Apu…this will then kick things off for you.

I‘ll be back with more in a bit…BUT you will be awarded a bunch of tress for free to set the stage for the Hunt, after you’ve completed the initial series of 6s tasks…. (It does not appear that you’ll need to place these to move on.)
