Level 51: Marvin Monroe – Overview

On the heels of the very first “unevent” for the Whacking Day/Easter period, Level 51 has dropped, bringing with it a couple of dead guys. Oh wait, one dead guy and one dead guy that ended up not being dead, just “very sick”. Springfield’s favorite, if there is one, psychiatrist Dr. Marvin Monroe and his Family Therapy Center have arrived to guarantee you “family bliss or double your money back”. Before you go and sell your TV’s, there’s more, Homer’s Simpson’s fateful co-worker Frank Grimes also arrives with Level 51, or at least his resurrected, not-dead-after-all-but-from-a-grave self, if that makes any sense. As always I present to you the overview for the update which covers exactly what the update brought, prices, few bits of info for each item, etc. Let’s see what Level 51 has for us. Right this way!

How Do the ___________ Items Affect the Conform-O-Meter? Multi-Update Guide

With all of the craziness that the holiday season brings, (by holiday season I mean October to January according to the stores in my area) we sometimes get lost in our real world responsibilities like families, jobs, etc. And sometimes we just get behind, which is the case with our Conform-O-Meter posts. We’ve missed a few updates and instead of posting them one by one I’m going to catch up, right here, all in one guide.


According to my records we are missing everything after Level 45 so we’ll go from there and by the end of this will have covered everything up until Phase 2 of the current Christmas event. If you’re new or newer and would like to learn what the Conform-O-Meter is and what it does please see our post here. For more information about the other Conform-o-meter ratings and other technical details in the game, please check out our S-Files Page full of technical info on the game here.

Covercraft – Season 26 Episode Tie-In Update Overview

Along with this years Thanksgiving mini-event came an episode tie-in for the upcoming episode titled “Covercraft” which is set to air Sunday, November 23 at 8:00 EST.

For those of you who can’t see the new episodes as they air there are ways around that *hint**hint*.

Any how the breakdown of the tie-in update is after the jump.

Level 47 Overview

Finally, after a few very long weeks, the alien invasion has been thwarted and the nerve-wracking Crafting has gone the way of the zombies, ghosts and gremlins. Another chapter in Tapped Out history has closed but not before yet another has started. Before we welcome our third Thanksgiving into our virtual Springfield’s we sink deeper into the more obscure parts of The Simpsons with Level 47.

Frederick ‘Freddy’ Joey Quimby, the nephew of Springfield’s Mayor Quimby, has arrived with Level 47 along with the French Waiter he was accused of nearly killing as well as Princess Kashmir, Springfield’s most famous stripper. Along with these 3 characters, we’ve also gotten a few other goodies. We’ll keep the individual histories of these characters for a separate post, this one is to break down all of these new items, their costs and any other relevant game info.

What characters and buildings could be added in the future?: Cookie Kwan and Lindsey Naegle

Hello Tappers!

Earlier than planned, I’ve had enough time this week to post the second edition of ‘What characters and buildings could be added in the future?’. During my last post I talked about the possibilities of gossipper Helen Lovejoy being added to the game along with her mischievous daughter Jessica Lovejoy, and that post can be found here along with links to other past posts. In this post I will be looking at the power ladies of Springfield. Cookie Kwan and Lindsey Naegle. I have wanted to do the pair for a while now and thanks to a reminder from CXonor13 I have decided to base my next post around Cookie Kwan and Lindsey Naegle.


Cookie Kwan and Lindsey Naegle are characters that are way overdue in the Tapped Out world, being regulars in the show and even appearing in the game as level up messengers. Cookie Kwan and Lindsey Naegle are strong power women and I think Tapped Out will benefit from having these two ladies in the game.

NOTE: This post is 100% speculation!
