Where In the World?!

where in the worldHey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As I mentioned in our By the Numbers Post this blog is made up of readers from 207 countries, wowsa!  And during this TSTO lull we thought it would be fun to share a little bit about where we’re from…but do it in a fun and different way (this is Addicts after all!)

So here’s what we want you guys to do…find your favorite Simpson LEGO mini fig, other Simpson figure or post a picture of yourself in front of a famous landmark or view of where you live.  This can be anything from mountains to the beach…and everything in between!  Have fun with it!

Share your photos in the comments below (you can upload them to Dropbox or Flickr to create a link…or you can email us your images if you’re not quite sure how to do it) and when we get a bunch of them we’ll create 1 big TSTO Addicts Where in the World Photo Gallery!

And now here’s where Bunny, Wookiee and I are…. Continue reading

Hey Addicts, Caption This!

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! Twice 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 skye5153)

If you’ve got an image you’d like to submit for a “Caption this!” post, email it to us at or post it on the Addicts Flickr page, you never know when yours might be next!

Silly Simpsons: Wookiee-Approved Fan Art

Hey hey hey.

In this current period of TSTO, I’m sure a lot of us are itching for new stuff.  I’m right there with you my friends but as powerless as everyone to do anything about it.  Of course, new stuff doesn’t have to be relegated to digital content.  There’s so much new stuff all over.  In that vein, I thought I’d share some fan art you may have not seen.  Sound good?  Click more if  the answer’s yes.

Discount Donut Deals: Share Your Finds

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Everyday at least 1 reader in this AMAZING Community shares a deal they saw on App Store Gift Cards at a local store or online.  We LOVE these little tips you guys share with the community, as a way to get discounted Gift Cards to help save some dough on Donuts!

Recently during our Blogiversary Poll we asked you guys for comments on what we can do to make TSTO Addicts better…and a few of you suggested having a location where you can share deals on how to score discounted App Store Gift Cards with each other.  And we ABSOLUTELY LOVE this idea!

So here’s your Discount Donut Deal post….post deals you saw online or in stores for discounted Apple, Google Play or Amazon Gift Cards and help out your fellow tappers!

Saw a great deal on Google Play Gift Cards?  Share it below!

play-card_couponsA local store running a discount on iTunes Gift Cards?  Let your fellow Tappers know where they can save below!

Amazon running an awesome deal on coins that’s too good to pass up?  Make sure your fellow Kindle players don’t miss out below!

So where are YOUR Donut Deals?

Note: No Hack/cheat talks allowed.  Anything posted to this thread that is NOT a deal on discounted gift cards or deals involving gift cards will NOT make it through comment moderation.  This post is for legit discounts on Gift Cards and Amazon coins only.  

What the Addicts Want (besides land and the monorail)

What’s up Addicts?

So a year has come and gone on this site and I thought the perfect way to start off a new year was with another listing of things YOU want in the game.  The last time we did one of these lists was back in January and February.  Since then, we’ve collected quite a few from those posts, our Tapaholic Requesterinos to EA and in assorted comments I saved. If I forgot anyone, I apologize and I admit to editing some items for readability or conciseness.  There really are some great ideas below.

The Little Blog That Could…By the Numbers One Year Later

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Today is the official 1 year anniversary of TSTO Addicts!  Woo-hoo!!!!

On numerous occasions I’ve told you how we’ve worked hard to make Addicts different.  To make it that place you want to keep coming back to.  We wanted to make it fun and make you laugh!  We didn’t start out as the biggest TSTO blog…but like I said we called ourselves “The Little Blog That Could”.  We knew we had something special and worked hard to build and grow the community!

We’re insanely proud of what we’ve accomplished in one year, but we’ve never lost that “The Little Blog That Could” mentality.  We haven’t changed our methods or our desire to be different.  To be a fun place for Tappers to come and hang out and to bring you the WHOLE story.  Not just walkthroughs and tech support but info ABOUT the game, where things came from, 2D/3D designs, contests involving readers….Tapped Out is a game, games are supposed to be fun right?!

So in honor of our 1 year Anniversary we wanted to share with you some of the numbers that have made up TSTO Addicts over the last year!  So let’s pop the champagne and check out the numbers!

Diary of a Wookiee: Completely Random Thoughts


How the heck are my favorite tappers doing?  I think we can all agree that we are in an EA-induced lull period where we all figure out new things to do to our town or newer tappers play catch-up.  Money is saved up for that next big purchase (Sit-N-Rotate is mine in about 3 million) and we all just cross our fingers for the next update.  With some free time, I figured I’d just write out some random thoughts in my noggin.  Click more if that sounds like your bag.

Turbo Tappin’ Level 27: Lenny & Carl

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Back with another Turbo Tappin’ TSTO walkthrough.  This time we’re going a little back in time for those on Level 43, but something perhaps new tappers are coming up on.  We’re Turbo Tappin’ Level 27 and Lenny & Carl!

For those of you who don’t know Turbo Tappin’ is our quick version of a walkthrough for the Level/Update/Character where we give you who starts the quest, the task and what you earn.  This way you have your quick guide on who to keep free and when.  This is great for our fellow Addicts who love to copy and paste the walkthrough into their device for quick reference.  You can check out more of our Turbo Tappin’ Walkthroughs here.

So let’s get to Tappin’ on Level 27!  Rev. Lovejoy gets things going for us this time…
