Where Did THAT Come From – Honest John’s Computers

Beep beep boop… blop bleep bloop…. Schereeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeechhhhhhhh….

Anyone besides me remember the days before computers? I know I’m not that old but it’s hard not to operate in today’s modern world without some sort of computer, tablet or tapping device. Remember when parents gave their kids a pager and a few quarters? I still reminisce about when my Step-Dad probably spent more money than we should have to build his own computer and I got to go on AOL. There were also great DOS servers you could go to for lots of text based games via your modem. Ah… the good old days…

Anywho… Level 44 arrived for tappers and the one of the buildings was Honest John’s Computers. Let’s take a look at just where this item originated.

Sunday Night Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite Addicted Tappers this evening?  Everyone enjoy their weekend?  Did you go to The Simpsons Live Show at the Hollywood Bowl?  Do anything fun and exciting?

Anyway enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right? No, it’s not time to eat questionable Fugu with Akira.  Nope it’s time for another Sunday Night Open Thread!  (this is very quickly becoming our favorite time of the week by the way!  You guys have some AWESOME things to say!)

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So…here is your Sunday Night Open Thread.  Level 44 and Clash of Clones are in full swing.  With this week being 2 weeks since Level 44 hit, do you think something new will hit this week?   Yankees and Orioles are Sunday Night Baseball tonight.  And the 49ers and Bears are Sunday Night Football.  Which will you be watching?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, update fun, MLB, NFL or anything else you can think of!  We can’t wait to chat with you all!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!


Turbo Tappin’ Premium Stuff: Akira, Ohhhhh Myyyyyy!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Akira has arrived in Springfield!  Fugu and sushi and blowfish Ohhh Myyy!

So, Akira is the premium character introduced into TSTO with the Level 44 update (you can check out our Should I Buy Guide Here).  He was introduced with the Happy Sumo Restaurant…woo-hoo Blowfish for everyone! ;)

Akira comes with an extremly long (dialogue wise) questline that’s broken up into several parts, and a bonus questline if you have Ninja Homer!  So, since there’s no time like the present let’s get this Turbo Tappin’ Adventure on the way shall we?

Diary of a Wookiee: Building Castles in Spite of EA

I don’t know about you but I am finding myself smiling more and more every time I visit the Village of Wookieeton and find smoking remnants of buildings. While strategy based games aren’t my forte or really my favorite, I decided early on in this event to make the most of it.  If nothing else, this update has rekindled my creative fire.  My neighbors are active and so is my imagination… life is good.

I’m normally a pretty positive person but I do have one big gripe with this update.  I’m sure by now a lot of tappers have gotten their 3 castles up to Level 10 and found out that the accouterments for Lisa and Bart’s come with a premium price tag.  I was right there with ya being pretty ticked about the development and wondering what the heck I was going to do with just 3 towers, 8 walls, a gate and castle?

Where Did THAT Come From – Two Story Outhouse

Open bomb bay doors… look out below!

Hey hey friends!  It seems EA had some sneaky surprises waiting for us and delivered on more items for our TSTO wargame.  A bunch of different items arrived and as always, I get the privilege to dish on the origins of them.  Today I thought we’d look at the Two Story Outhouse.  For the cost of 3000 Elixir, it boosts your Vanity rating by 800 points and as a nice bonus, can be placed on the grass, pavement, beach and Squidports of your town.  Makes sense, people gotta see a man about a wallaby in all sorts of places.
