Where Did THAT Come From – Big Butt Skinner Balloon

Summertime… and the livings easy…

Hola Amigos!

So in a period of EA downtime, our game has brought us a bunch of returning items at discount prices. Pretty cool that people get the chance to get items a little cheaper but mega cool that there’s at least one new item in the midst of it all. Sunday’s Gil Deal included the Big Butt Skinner Balloon for 95 donuts. But what the heck does this item have to do with the Best, Show. Ever? Is it a parade balloon, Bart Simpson prank or heavenly omen? Let’s take a look at the show and find out.

In-Game Update Gil Deal: End of School Promotion

Glitch/Bug Alert: There’s apparently a bug going around with Jimbo that several of you are reporting.  If you purchase him he disappears from your Springfield.  If that happens, contact EA and let them know.
You can contact them here.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Looks like we’ve got ourselves a little in-game update for donuts to keep us busy over the weekend!

2015-06-12 14.25.53

When you start up your Springfield you’ll see our good friend Gil’s back…and this time with an end of school promotion for us all.

As always more details as we go through them….details of what Gil has in store for us below…

ico_stor_single_endofschool2015Just a thought…usually updates like this make me think that EA’s biding time because they’re working on something else.  Especially because this offer is only for the weekend, it makes me think we’ll see something much bigger early next week.  So try not to get discouraged with this little update…since everything costs donuts.  I think we’ll see bigger and better things next week :) Continue reading

Sunday Night Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite Addicted Tappers this evening?  Did everyone have a nice weekend?  Everyone enjoy the holidays?

Anyway enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  No it’s not time to sing Fa ra ra ra ra…nope it’s time for another Sunday Night Open Thread!

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.  Christmas Phase 2 hit our games on Christmas Eve…what do you think of the new update?  Gil was in town for a couple of days…with a donut deal FINALLY…did you take advantage of his offer?  Christmas was last week, did Santa bring you everything you wanted?  New Years Eve is this week…what do you have planned?  Sunday Night Football tonight features the Bengals vs. the Steelers.  Who are you rooting for?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, update fun, Gil, NFL, Christmas, or anything else you can think of!  We can’t wait to chat with you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!
