Probably the biggest addition to the latest event is a mini-game called Tap Ball. The new sport with so many rules there literally are none, on the surface, may seem complicated. So much in fact, I’ve actually seen a few people recommending to skip playing it entirely. This is terrible advice, unfortunately. I’ve scoured this event inside and out and unless you are comfortable with NOT progressing through the Personal Prize track and winning any of the great new items, you cannot skip this. Tap Ball must be played to some degree in order to obtain enough Foam Fingers, Hats and Pennants to even scratch the surface of the Prizes. Not only considering the prizes, Tap Ball should be played because, well, it’s actually pretty fun.
To explain the title, no I’m not calling any of you a dummy. I am referring to the hugely popular book series aimed at presenting “an extensive series of instructional/reference books which are intended to present non-intimidating guides for readers new to the various topics covered.” You can find a For Dummies guide on literally any subject and they are pleasantly informative and detailed. Taking a page (pun definitely intended) I present the Tap Ball 2015 Event for Dummies – Topix Edition.
