Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ahh Christmas time.  Is there anything better than the smell of freshly cut Christmas Trees, Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, candy canes in hot chocolate and……another Addicts contest?!

So let’s talk about this Christmas Contest (before we change our minds)…..

Turkey Time Is (almost) Over, Is Santa Coming?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder to you all…it looks like the Thanksgiving update is set to end tomorrow (12/2/14)..the official end time that we see is 0800GMT (3am EST).    Could this mean Christmas will be arriving to TSTO?  Who knows what EA has up their sleeves, but what we can tell you is once the Thanksgiving event is over…it’s over.  That means all of those limited-time decorations, buildings and characters that you haven’t purchased, will *poof* disappear!

Thanksgiving and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Thanksgiving has arrived in Springfield!  This Limited-Time event will only be around a short while (It’ll be gone be December 2nd), so make sure you get those Limited-Time decorations and buildings while they’re still around!  For a little extra incentive let’s take a look at how the new additions to Tapped Out will impact your Conform-O-Meter.

The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and  XP from everything you collect in the game.  When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town.  If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.

While the Thanksgiving event brought no changes to the Conform-O-Meter requirements, it did bring us a ton of new items to add to our Springfield.  Let’s take a look at how all of the new “goodies” impact our rating: 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 Mitchell H)

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!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey Howdy Hey Turkey Tappers!

Woohoo, it’s finally Turkey Day here in the US! And you know what that means? Turkey, mashed potatoes, apple pie, pumpkin pie, football, stretchy pants and insane sales at the mall! You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always find all the latest on the Thanksgiving Update here), as the Addicts staff celebrates the holiday with their families but don’t worry we’ll be back at it tomorrow!

However, we couldn’t let a day dedicated to being thankful go with out a special THANK YOU to all of our AMAZING readers! We are so thankful for each and every one of you taking the time to read our posts and comment! So from Wookiee, Bunny, and myself THANK YOU!!!

Now for a little extra fun. In my family, and many families, we have a tradition on Thanksgiving, we go around the table and each take a turn saying what we’re most thankful for over the past year. So, I thought it would be fun if my Addicts family each took a turn and shared with you, our AMAZING readers, what we’re most thankful for this year! So with that being said…. Continue reading
