Addicts Want to Know: To Nuke or Not To Nuke….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well it would seem as if we’re in a bit of a summer lull in Springfield.  With the Yard Sale not bringing any new content, beyond Mayan Marge, for many Tappers…we’re all starting to feel the lull in game play.  In my opinion these lulls have ALWAYS been the perfect time to work on some redesigns of Springfield.

During our Sunday Night Open Thread this past week, several of you commented that you’ve taken advantage of the Nuclear Option and are taking advantage of the lull & completely redesigning your Springfield.  While others expressed concern  for wiping out their whole town.  So here’s what I want to know….

 What are your thoughts on the nuclear option?  Have you pushed the trigger yet?  How do you feel about the lull in the game right now?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Psst…if you’re looking for a little inspiration in the design department you can check out our Design page here OR the AMAZING work of your fellow Tappers over on our Flickr Page :)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Freaks & Geeks & …Bunny??!!

Hey there Hoppereenos. Bouncing in all giddy like with a lil hint of things to come. A great gathering of Geeks is about to commence.

Nothing like the smell of thousands upon thousands of Nerdy Geek boys all smashed into one location to make a Bunny all sorts of giddy. Poor Alissa can’t wait to kick me out of the basement. So I packed all my Geek Girl scented sprays, some silly jewelry, and will be hitching a ride with some local Geek Podcasters.

I think you know just where it is I am heading to. :)

Hopefully I will be able to get a good seat to the Simpsons panel while there. Maybe snag a few souvenirs to bring back….you know…like a couple of cute Brit actors. Heheheheh.

So stick around as I will be taking you along with me in a way and posting about it here. Now excuse me while I go Geek Girl squeal really loudly just to harass Alissa.

Sunday Night Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite Addicted Tappers this evening?  How was your weekend?  Enjoying the summer weather? 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 get down and boogie tonight!  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.  A mini update hit our games this week.  An update that made old items new again.  What do YOU think of it all?  Simpsons Executive Producer Matt Selman gave Tappers a little tease on his Twitter feed about things to come..what do you think of it all?  MLB All Star game was this past week, what did you think of it?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, update fun, MLB or anything else you can think of!  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Mad Men of Springfield: Moe Szyslak

Welcome to another new addition to Addicts, the Mad Men of Springfield. We will be going into depth on the history and background of the male species running around our lil towns as well as those not yet in the game.

Just think about it. What Man living in Springfield is “normal”? Not a single one that I can think of. They all have at least ONE thing wrong with them. Seriously! Think about it. How many issues does Moe have? A Reverend a “little” obsessed with trains? An owner of a Kwik-E-Mart that goes to counseling with the same person that robs him, on a daily basis? Not to mention the “inbreeding” and other strange happenings going on at the farm. Oh the idiosyncrasies.

So sit back, relax, grab your favorite beverage, and enjoy as we kram your brains with some Simpson knowledge of the MAD MEN OF SPRINGFIELD.

Springfield Showoff:Christmas in July

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we find ourselves sometimes forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already  :P ) on YOU…our readers.

Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU. So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in game cash spent.

Send us your work, no matter how big or small. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.
