We’re hearing reports of the Christmas Update (V 4.6 r1) hitting the Apple stores. So be sure to check out your iTunes store and update your devices! Android users sit tight…it’s coming shortly!
Looking for friends? Check out the ADD FRIENDS area right above this. Unfortunately, all requests not placed there will be intercepted by The Grumple.
Update: We’re seeing spotty reports of it hitting the Android Market as well. Some users are reporting it’s there, other’s don’t see it & some are saying it says update but nothing is there yet. The true Addicts that we are…we play on ALL devices and we’re still not seeing it in our Android markets. As soon as it hits for us we’ll confirm it to you guys!
Update #2: The update on the App has hit Android Markets. If you’re still not seeing it try restarting your device.
Update #3: Another in game update hit both Apple and Android. Checking to see if there are any noticeable differences. Hoping this fixes the glitches a few apple users are already seeing. Will post if we see more.

Anywho… I don’t know about you but I really feel like this update was so worth the wait. Just the first glimpse of my town had me all Chrismistified (thanks Alunited1961 for the EPIC word).

In case you’ve been living under a rock (or in Shelbyville) it’s snowing is Springfield! That means it’s time to Turbo Tap the update! Here’s your Turbo Tappin’ quick walkthrough guide for the Christmas 2013 update (for those of you who LOVE the full dialogue, don’t worry it’s coming soon too):
Note:this is a walkthrough for just the main quest line at this time. Due to the nature of the Christmas update, and the many parts to it, we’ll add any additional walkthroughs separately. So basically this is the walkthrough for the main quest (free) version. Enjoy!
Things kick off with a dialogue between Homer and Lisa, discussing Christmas and a special delivery on the Simpson’s doorstep. Continue reading

Hey Howdy Hey Ghostbuste..er I mean Gift Grabbers!
Snow has arrived in Springfield & is it just me or is anyone else have Déjà vu? Christmas looks a lot like Halloween (sort of). Instead of the creepy mist, Ghosts, Gremlins and GOO, Christmas brings us snow, gift boxes, gift bags and gift cards (Geez..what’s with all the G words EA?!) Confused yet? Don’t be…as always the Addicts team is here to help! We’ve got you covered, so that plus the 4 weeks you have to play the update should help you achieve all of the goals! Let’s get right to it by breaking down the “game inside the game”.
If we were Ghostbusters at Halloween we’re Gift Grabbers for Christmas, because that’s what EA is asking you to do here. The object is to “grab” (tap) gifts in your town to collect Gift Cards and other goodies. Gift Cards are the new in-game currency for special Christmas items. Occasionally a Gift Box will spill out a Gift Bag or a Spin Coin when you tap them. Gift Bags are collected to put into your friend’s towns, they’ll help you earn more Gift Cards. Confused yet? Don’t be…let’s break it all down step by step Continue reading

IMPORTANT: It appears as though the Squidport, Cletus’s Farm, Channel 6 & Open Air Stage Glitch has been REMOVED with this update. Sorry to be the one to break the bad news!
Just a quick note from the resident Wookster to let y’all know my iphone is currently downloading the update as I type. Woo hoo! We’ll be back with more very soon!

UPDATE From Alissa: The update is now live on both Apple & Android…and it’s HUGE. This is the biggest update in the history of TSTO…and I think very much worth the wait…at least at first glance!
Christmas Event Ends January 7th, 2014
Here’s what we’ve got so far:
It’s snowing in Springfield!!!! Continue reading

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things. These posts are all about those strange and funny moments! Once a week we’ll be posting a Caption This!
moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!
Hey Addicts… Caption This!
(This week’s Caption This image was submitted by Addicts reader drakkenfyre)
If you’ve got an image you’d like to submit for a “Caption this!” post, email it to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com or post it on the Addicts Flickr page, you never know when yours might be next!
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
By now we’re all truly feeling like kids at Christmas waiting for Santa (is he here yet, is he here yet)! We’re all anxiously awaiting the Christmas Update drop from EA (SNOW!!), but the truth is no one really knows when it’s going to hit. EA is holding the “Christmas Cards” close to their chest this go round and they’ve got all of us Addicts on our toes (or hairy paws in the case of Wookiee & Bunny) as to when it’s going to hit.
While we don’t exactly know when the update is going to drop there are a couple of things we can see in the game files. The Yellow Subterfuge Episode Tie-In Update is scheduled to “dive” away tomorrow morning (Tuesday). At which point Santa could make his appearance…or EA could just play more “reindeer games” with us and see just how crazy we can get! (I think Bunny’s already gone mad with the anticipation. Last we heard…the orderlies were hauling her out of her hotel room in a cute white jacket that allowed her to hug herself.)
Starting to feel like you’re going a little crazy? Worried you might turn into Bunny? Here are some things you can do to help you “Keep Calm and Tap On” while waiting for Santa:
-The Yellow Subterfuge Episode Tie-In IS ending on 12/10/13. So make sure you’ve completed the quest, you’ve unlocked Oscar’s Obstacles Truck (it will be stored in your inventory once you do. Once it’s in your inventory it will stay there forever, or until you remove it), and if you were thinking about purchasing the USS Tom Clancy you do so before tomorrow. Once the update is gone you’ll miss out on your chance to purchase the Submarine for your Squidport!
-Check out Wookiee’s latest WAWW- Holiday Edition for some fun predictions on what EA could be providing us with this year.
-Check out our Christmas Preview post, for some steps you can be doing to help prep you for the Christmas Event.
-Start planning your holiday design for our Christmas contest, where you can win FREE DONUTS!!
And now for a little homework….
Join the conversation and tell us in the comments below what you’re hoping for this Christmas update & what you’ve been doing to “Keep Calm & Tap On”. We love hearing for you and can’t wait to see what you’ve all been doing to keep from turning into Bunny while waiting for the update to hit! (or maybe you’ve turned into Bunny…in which case tell us how you’re going crazy…)
Here’s hoping the forecast tomorrow calls for a little snow in Springfield!

Well hello there all you fellow Addicts. Getting annoyed that the snow still hasn’t dropped yet? Getting a lil…impatient? Lol.
No worries, you will be quite happy here shortly. In the meantime, it is time for some random rambling from your resident Addicts Asylum Patient Zero. You ready for this? Well too bad, you are gonna get it anyway.
A lot of people, mainly the orderlies here, ask me why I am so crazy. Well, I don’t know. Neither do all the other voices in my head. That or they just refuse to tell me. In my crazy lil way, I think this game fits me just right. There seems to ALWAYS be something going on. Something to do. It fits very very well with that ADD of…SQUIRREL!
So…where was I? Oh yes, my cray cray (yah I just said that). Even now as I sit here in my hotel room on vacation, I just can’t seem to pull myself away from this game…more so…from this blog. Lol. I REALLY do enjoy writing for all of you. Letting you see a side of me that most in the real world run screaming from….errr…I mean LURVE. Yah, that’s it. They LURVE me. Now why am I just randomly typing up this stuff? To confuse you of course. Is it working?
Just don’t worry. I know you all are anxiously awaiting that new Christmas Event to drop. Trust me, so am I. My eyes are going buggy “frakkin files” to see if there is any hint of anything at all that I can find. As soon as something hits, we will be here…feeding you hungry hungry monsters as fast as we can.
So sit tight, keep your eyes on us. In the meantime, feel free to poke around the blog. Catch up on some stories you might have missed. See if there is something that catches your eyes. See if there is something that annoys the heck outta yah and let us know so we can bug you for being annoyed…errr…I mean…so we can make it all pretty and fix it for you.
