I’ve always wanted to title a post with just an emoji…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, it’s Thursday and still nothing new from EA.  Good times in TSTO guys, good times.

Yes, you’re bored.  I’m bored too.  It’s weird not having new content to write about.

And I already know, because of your comments, some of you are freaking out over the lack of updates…

Springfield Showoff: Stadium Freeplay

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we sometimes find ourselves forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU.

So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in-game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small and brag about it to the world. We want you to! Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Now it’s YOUR turn!  We know Safi would love to hear from all of you so be sure to send him some birthday wishes!  If you get a chance today leave your birthday wishes for everyone’s favorite math whiz in the comments below, kind of like a big giant Birthday Card from everyone here at Addicts!  We know Saf will love hearing from you!

TSTO Character Profile: Larry Kidkill

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So with all this downtime, I’m finally getting the chance to cover some things I didn’t have a chance to do originally (or I simply forgot about).  This time around I’m circling back to the Moe’s Ark update and covering Larry Kidkill’s tasks.

Larry originally arrived as a free character, via the questline, during the Moe’s Ark event (last summer).  And because he was awarded via the questline and not the prize track, I never went back around to cover his task list and other details about him.

So here’s a look at the details behind Larry, Springfield Zoo’s villainous owner…

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!

When we can, 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!

I’ve got two this week.  It’s been a slow time in TSTO, so 2 Caption This! images are better than one! 🙂 

This Caption This! image is brought to us by aldapooh

This Caption This! image is brought to us by HondoRiley  

So go ahead and caption away!

If you’ve got an image you’d like to submit for a “Caption this!” post, email it to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com you never know when yours might be next!

Super Safi’s Monday Morning Math Mayhem 16 – Bat Math Part 4: Earned Run Average

Morning Mathematical Monsters & Maniacs!

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “M”)

 

Hi, I’m Super Safi and you may remember me from such stats and strategy posts as Kwik-E-Mart Farming and the advanced losing-to-win Superheroes battle strategy.

Over the past 600+ episodes, The Simpsons has taken us on an amazing mathematical journey involving fractions, probability, Fermat’s last theorem, and hundreds of other aspects from the wonderful world off mathematics.

And what better way to start your week, then by discussing math Monday morning?

With baseball season officially underway, this month we’re going to explore one of my favourite branches of math – sabermetrics. After all, as Prof Frink so aptly said, “baseball is a game played by the dexterous, but only understood by the poin-dextrous.”

Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

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 Open Thread…..

Happy Easter!  How are you celebrating?  Do you celebrate?  Have you decorated Springfield for Easter?  Favorite TSTO Easter content?

And finally, how about the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Time to brush up on your Simpsons skills because today’s trivia starts now!

EPPP Confidential – IV – The Reckoning


So who could possibly know what Jeanene was up to?  I know that as I wrote this chapter, I continued to be surprised by her unbelievable hubris and lack of common sense.

But, power does that to people.

It’s somewhat similar to the power to “mess with people” that huge gaming companies sometimes do to their player, throwing curves, delays, and giant changes into play, without explanation. But, I digress…kinda…

Again, A Warning… This Chapter is DEFINITELY RATED M for Mature Audiences. PG has been thrown to the wind…
