There is either a mini-glitch in the game or an awesome new way to (slowly) earn XP. If your neighbors purchased the Sham Rock Café, which does the business of “Enjoying an Organic Ice Green Coffee” every 12 hours for $300 and 30 XP, then they will have a tiny little Yupprechaun running around their Springfield. Tap Yupprechaun as many times as you like for money and XP!
In my “tests,” I earned $6 and 2 XP multiple times (after tapping three buildings in the town for Friend Points). When I tap Yupprechaun, he says some gibberish, followed by, “southern Tuscany,” in an Irish accent. I guess that’s where yuppie leprechauns go for a holiday! He will also say, “plasma screen TV,” after some gibberish, too. He must drink his organic green iced coffee while watching high-definition TV; this guy lives quite the life!
Is this happening to you? Do your friends have the Sham Rock Café? If so, go on a quest for some small increments of XP like it’s a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow! Let’s hope this is not a glitch like the Squidport tile trick (in that it will disappear in a future update); rather, let’s hope this is a bit of Irish luck! Happy tapping!
