Happy Labor Day from the Addicts!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well here in the US today marks the unofficial end of Summer….Labor Day.  I think it’s funny how here in America we don’t bother using calendars to mark the start and end of our summers…we just know Memorial Day is the unofficial start and Labor Day is the unofficial end.  Sometimes I think we just like the excuse for a good Barbecue!

Of course Labor Day isn’t really about the end of summer…and it isn’t only celebrated in the US (our friends up in Canada are celebrating it today as well…). Labor Day (or Labour Day) is a celebration of the workers movement.  It’s meant to honor those who contribute to the strength and prosperity of their country.   (you can read more about it here)

Anywho… most Americans will spend today soaking up what’s left of their summer and spend time with their families and friends down the shore (can you tell I’m from Jersey?!) at parades, picnics and watching fireworks!  And since Bunny, Wookiee and I are all located in the US… you can throw us into that bunch!  Don’t worry… we’ll still be popping in and out of the comments throughout the day to help you with all of your Clash of Clones questions.  Just keep in mind it might take us a little while to moderate through all the comments, so we thank you in advance for your patience!

We hope you all have a GREAT day!  Do YOU have any plans for today?  Did you enjoy your summer?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Special Saturday Night Caption This!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We thought we’d do something a little fun tonight, it is Saturday night after all, and do a special weekend edition of Caption This!  And unlike our usual weekly Caption This! post, this time we thought we’d share a few of the funny images you guys have been sending in!  So caption 1, caption 2, caption them all…or just giggle along with us!

From the Mouth of Addicts: Mail, Make-up, Murals and More

mouthsofaddictsmailcall

The war may be on but what else is going on in the world of The Simpsons besides nerds, barbarians, shield and shenanigans?  Well… you”re about to find out because other players/readers wanted to share some cool stuff

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post comes to us from a few different tappers.  Everyday we receive TONS of emails from you guys with fun shots of your town, random thoughts about the Simpsons & of course…we’d be lying if we said it wasn’t our favorite… admiration for TSTO Addicts!  So we thought this week we’d share.  In addition, we also get quite a few comments with neat-o stuff.  I personally hate when I think something might get buried in comments and not seen so to stop that, we included them here.

Our first item was an e-mail sent to us from a reader who asked to stay anonymous.

(I say this anonymously, being that I work at mac I’m not allowed to spill the juices, but ya didn’t hear it from me! Just wanted my TRUE Simpson addicts to get first dibs! Keep up the awesome blog!!)

Simpsons MAC announcement

 

The MAC line launched already so if this seems like your thing… check it out!  You can also see more at the MAC website.

Next up, reader Bloodangel736 popped by in the comments to share this:

I was looking through local news today and found this though!

http://www.kptv.com/story/26372405/springfield-pays-homage-to-the-simpsons-with-new-mural?autostart=true

I don’t live there, but I figured you would appreciate some Simpson news!

I wish I lived closer to Portland to see all this awesomeness.  If I’m ever up that way, I’ll be sure to check this out in person.

Another great comment from the past week was from reader Inés Álvarez. She wanted to make sure everyone saw this hilarious video of Homer taking the ALS ice bucket challenge.

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is serious business and I applaude anyone who took the challenge and/or donated money.  MyTube is full of celebrities and others doing this.  My beautiful Ewok did the challenge and donated this past weekend even if California is in a drought.  At least she watered the front lawn in the process.

Speaking of the little fuzzball, last on the list is a clip she made sure I saw the other day and I just wanted to share it.  We talked about Judd Apatow writing a Simpsons script a while back but as Season 26 approaches, it’s coming soon.  Mr. Apatow starts talking about the episode around the 1:48 mark.

That wraps up this edition of From the Mouths of Addicts.  What did YOU think of it all?   Sound off in the comments below.  You know we LOVE hearing from you! :)

And keep sending us those emails!  You never know when you might end up on the next From the Mouths of Addicts!

Once a week (at least) we plan on showcasing your words (art or video) for the world, and TSTO Community, to read!  Here’s your chance to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out.  Simply send in your posts to our Addicts email account: TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com (many of you already do) and we’ll do the rest!  We’ll pick (at least) one post to be showcased here on Addicts every week.  So send us your posts…we can’t wait to see what you have to say!

War 101: Character Tasks & Elixir Earnings

Storm the castle!  Batten the gates!  Launch the fireballs!  Man the catapult, trebuchet and ballistas!  Any one got any Greek fire?

Oh hey there tappereenos.  I guess I got a bit carried away with all the war in my town.  In the midst of this war, we all find ourselves with lots of questions.  Some of these include “Which characters earn elixir with tasks?, “Why the heck should I level up my characters?”, “What does it do?” , “Why is Wookiee so dashingly handsome and clever?”   Well… click more if you’d like to find out about character tasks and elixir payout.

Elixir vs. Gold

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

For the first time that I can remember an event has TWO types of currency associated with it!  The Clash of Clones Event uses both Elixir and Gold to advance in the event, so what’s the difference between each one?  What do they each do?  Let’s break it all down….

Character Level Up

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Springfield has been transported back in time and things are looking vaguely familiar to another mobile game out there.  Oh the Clash of the Clones is upon us!  And with it arrives 4 new character skins for Homer, Lisa, Bart & Marge!

One of the new aspects of this event versus previous events is Leveling up.  With Clash of Clones you can level up your Castles AND Characters (only the Simpsons).  Castle level ups improve your town defense, increase your nerd production and increase your max nerd total, among other things.  Castle levels ups cost Elixir, the new in game currency for the event, but Character level ups those cost Gold, the prize currency for the event.  So, just what do character level ups do?  Let’s take a look and find out….

Turbo Tappin’ Medieval Style: Clash of Clones Side Quests

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

With this new update we’ve been transported back in time and Springfield has gone Medieval on us!  Either that or we’ve been transported into another game all together!  In either case…new event means new questline.  New questline means time for another Turbo Tappin’ Walkthrough!

We’ve already covered the main questline of this event here, so in this post we’ll tackle the side quests that will pop up during the event.  These quests are where you’ll unlock Archer Lisa (Eco Castle)  and Goblin Bart (Boxed In).  Remember these quests will not start until you’ve reached Part 9 of the main questline and completed it.

We’re also going to cover the Extreme Castle Makeover questline that will start once you’ve build the Barbarian Castle.  We’ll cover that first since it pops up before the other two in the game…

So now what are we waiting for?  Let’s get to tappin’!
