Treehouse of Horror Ultimate Tapping Guide

You also can tap up to 3 tap young Rigellian aliens while visiting your friends (you get 2 currencies per tap, 3 if they are wrapped around a citizen’s face, and 3 if you have a Rigellian Hunting License).

I have a Rigellian Huntin License, but I only get 2 probes per tap in friends' towns. Is the above a misprint?

    Great guide, thank you!

    Couple questions though, what are the odds of receiving each treat bag from the kids trick or treating, and what are the odds of receiving each crafting item from those treat bags?

    Also, I receiving two Ammo from either a treat bag or squishing rigellians, (sorry not sure which, perhaps someone else can clarify) so there is another method for receiving those.

    Edited to add: first off, thanks so much, brettolmsted, for putting this together!
    How to earn them:
    The main method of earning these three currencies is to tap young Rigellian aliens roaming around town (you get 2 currencies per tap, 3 if they are wrapped around a citizen’s face, and 3 if you have a Rigellian Hunting License).

    Actually, I am getting 3 probes per Rigellian whether they're on anyone's face or not. Is anyone else seeing this? I have played the last two Halloweens, so it may be some item like the Pumpkin House or something that I already have. I'm hoping if a few more people chime in we can narrow this down!

    I do feel like I'm getting gremalien eggs more often when I tap a Rigellian wrapped around someone's head than when I tap one on the ground. Anyone else seeing this?

    And brettolmsted, THANK YOU for mentioning to check your inventory! I've been finding all kinds of stuff in there every so often! I did notice once that I got a Human Test Subject in one treat bag, and three Spooky Walls in another, so I'm thinking that's where the random premium objects are coming from. I've never seen anything from tapping aliens other than the THOH currency items or treat bags.

    I would say that it is. I was getting one currency per tap and when I bought the license I started getting two per tap.
    The license has no effect on aliens in my own town.

    Here's what I've noticed-
    -I've only been getting 89 probes per friends town per day. It says I have 90, but then I get to the last town and instead of getting 3 I get only 2. Anyone seeing this? Been noticing this for a few days now.
    -I get a bronze treat bag from the Spooky House every 24hrs, not a gold one.
    -Like 111111simpsons, I feel like I'm getting gremalien eggs more often if I tap aliens off characters faces.
    -For a while I felt like I had a better chance at getting a treat bag in my own town if i tapped more aliens in one tap, but I no longer think that's true.
    -Some special items like spooky walls, human test subjects and plants DO show up in treat bags. There is a chance for donuts as well. Sometimes 1 or 2.
    -I only get 1 probe per alien in a friend's town, not 3. I don't have the license but it does say it will increase it to 2.

    The license is an item purchased by using Donuts. You can find it in the shopping menu.

    Yes, the UBO is just a skin for Burns, like the Stonecutters. Once Burns is free, you'll be able to switch him to the UBO skin (or it may switch automatically, as I believe the UBO questline will start on its own when Burns is free).
