Should I Buy…..Beer Stein Wiggum? Premium Guide

Everyone’s favorite down on his luck, jack of all trades Gil Gunderson made a very surprise pre-Halloween visit to our virtual world’s bringing with him an original, min-event with Oktoberfest. I know if most of you are like me the “Oh it’s Halloween!” butterflies fluttered in my stomach when I first saw signs of an update. Not a very big or even unique content-filled update by any means but any chance to obtain fresh, new content is always a plus. The farther along we come the more excited I get to see just how deep into the archives the developers go to pull out new stuff for our Springfield’s.


Seeing as how we’ve been lacking on a favored post series lately, I’m here to help you decide on whether to take ol’ Gil up on his offer of the Beer Stein Wiggum skin or let him go dumpster diving yet again for dinner and pass on it. Hopefully by the end of this I will have at least tried to best answer the burning question that comes with any premium purchase, Should I Buy…..Beer Stein Wiggum?

Right this way and quickly! This item won’t be around much longer!

Should I Buy……..Stacy Lovell, Malibu Stacy HQ and Stacy’s Dream House? Premium Guide

Updates such as Level 53 are exactly why The Simpsons Tapped Out is one of the greatest games ever, especially for those of us who have been avid fans for the last 26 years. I’ve said it a hundred times and probably will say it a hundred more, level updates are my absolute favorite additions to the game because the content of each new level is “canon” material and comes straight from the core story line of the show and gives the developers and writers an opportunity to “continue” or extend on a story or character that many of us found ourselves wishing for more of.

Many of you may not be so excited to see Stacy Lovell or better yet, many of you may not even know who Stacy Lovell is, but once you’ve completed this Premium Guide, hopefully, you will have gained a better understanding of the contribution this character has made to the history of The Simpsons and to many of its characters. Also, I’m hoping this will help you to decide on whether buying Stacy and the Malibu Stacy Headquarters is worth the donuts. Seeing as how Stacy Lovell and the additional premium building of Level 53 is so closely connected I will also cover Stacy’s Dream House in order to show the additional benefits from one purchase and how they add to the other and vice versa.

Mailbu-Stacy-Episode-ImageFollow me as we delve deep into The Simpsons and discover the history of Stacy Lovell and her greatest creation, Malibu Stacy.

Superhero Event 2015 Preparation

Hello Tappers!

We will soon be saying goodbye to the mini Valentines event however as one event goes another must arrive. And in this case it is the possible Superhero event 2015! This week we could see the possible arrival of the rumoured Superhero event that has been hinted by tapped out during the Valentines event and I’m back with another preparation post to help you prepare for another event! Just before the Halloween, Christmas, Valentines, Easter and Clash of Clones event I did a post about preparing for the events and it turned out to be a big success. I’m back with the post but this time helping you prepare for The Superhero Event 2015!

For every player that might not have reached the top-level, you will need to prepare for this possible upcoming event. An event is always big and you most likely will need a lot of Money, Land, Friends and of course Donuts! So here is a guide to help you to prepare for the upcoming Superhero event of 2015.


Since this is a possible new event there isn’t really much to go on. However events have always followed the same procedure and it may not be that hard to expect what is coming in terms of how to win prizes, event currency, ect. It has not been confirmed that there is going to be a Superhero event however we was teased with the character of Fallout Boy and the fact he is coming to Springfield soon!

Now, Here is the preparation guide for the possible Superhero Event 2015!:

Should I Buy….. Animatronic Bears? Premium Guide

Hey friends!

Note: Yes, this article could have been released sooner, however, I’ve just returned from a much-needed family getaway and there is still a few hours shy of 1 day left to ponder the purchase of the Animatronic Bears.

It’s been awhile since I’ve been on the front lines here and I’d very much like to start by saying I sincerely appreciate all of the hard work that Emma and LetsPlayNintendoITA have put into TopiX, they’ve truly devoted their heart and soul into keeping this great site going day after day. I cannot thank you enough and also to all of our loyal readers for keeping us amidst the best blogs in the world dedicated to Tapped Out.

Anyhow, back to matter at hand, this years Valentine’s “thingy.” I hesitate calling it anything more than that because, well it isn’t anything more than that, plain and simple. Lots of good old item releases for the newer players which is good because it allows players who passed or missed on items the first time certain items were released. And many players did complain that the V-Day events were over-stressed and had too much put into it so I guess everyone got a little of what they were asking for, almost everyone.

Putting all of the negative perception aside I am here on a lighter note for all of you, the good ol’ Premium Guide. The only new, never-seen-before item we received with the V-Day update is a fun little addition called the Animatronic Bears. I am going to give you all a little insight as to when and what episode, if any, this item made its appearance as well as any and all vital game info for this item to ultimately help you answer the question, Should I Buy…the Animatronic Bears?

A “Super” Let Down…. Or Is It? Post-Valentine’s Speculation

Hey friends!
Anyone who has followed me from my early days of blogging through till now knows that I am so not the speculative type of guy. In fact, I have actually advised my writers here at Topix to stray away from speculating whenever possible. But with the recent events of Tapped Out, or complete lack thereof, coupled with a very few and equally disappointing number of updates in general to kick off 2015, speculating is nature’s reaction to boredom and sheer disappointment. What else is there to do?
Having said that I’m here to start the rumor mill and give you my personal thoughts and expectations of what I THINK may or will happen in the coming weeks. I want to stress again that this is my personal, educated opinion based on certain instances, details given and just good ol’ fashioned gut intuition.
Anyone interested in reading what I think is going on with our beloved virtual escapes, follow me after the jump….

Treehouse of Horror I (Halloween Speculation)

Howdy Tappers!

Yes, I’m super super excited for the upcoming Halloween event of 2014! The Halloween events have always been my favorite and I’m already counting the days as we get closer and closer to October 7, 2014. Since I’m waiting for the event I thought I would create a little bit of speculation and a wish list of what I would want from the 2014 Halloween event.


To get myself in the Halloween spirit I have been watching horror movies all weekend along with some Treehouse of Horror episodes to pass the time. However nothing beats a good old speculation posts of what I would like for the upcoming Halloween update.

Poll: Halloween 2014

Hello Tappers!

It’s poll time! Since the Halloween event will be arriving soon I thought I would do a small poll just before the arrival of the event. Halloween 2012 brought Zombies stalking the citizens of Springfield, with Halloween 2013 bringing us Ghosts haunting Tapped Out. So the question is, what will Halloween 2014 bring?
