I just joined this wiki page because I can't get enough ot Tapped Out and there is great info here! I've been playing almost 1 year - started during the Thanksgiving 2013 event when I got my first smart phone (i unfortunately lost my Christmas decorations as I inadverantly started a new town then went back to my 1st town...DOH!!). I bought a tablet speciffically to play during the Halloween 2014 event as it is much eaiser and you can see so much more - guess I'm a Simpsons nerd...LOL. Well the Halloween event is almost over so for the first time I spent money on donuts to buy the Spooky House, Drive In and some others. I just discovered it's only $1.07 to buy the golden scratchers and they can be purchased at any time so I've bought a few of those but no jack pot yet. I did not start adding friends untill at least 6-7 months after I was playing and now I have over 40. Thanks to all my neighborreenos that visit me.
Thursday 11/20/14: I was given Pruitan Flanders an hour ago so it looks like the Thanksgiving 2014 event is underway! Will wait a little to send him on his 12 hour quest...need to build up some more $. My neice, alicialevi98, received it a much earlier today She's been getting the events earlier than I do for some reason. I got her hooked during Clash of the Clones...LOL. She is looking to add friends if you want to sent her a request! I joined last year at the Thanksgiving event so I'm curious to see how they compare. Still got to build the Quimby Compound before buying anything else - close to the 1 million mark! Not too crazy about Freddy, but I do want the building. XD
