An Argument for ONE Angel Lisa!

OK…so the piling on has started over my dislike for Angel Lisa. There are loads and loads of people telling me that “Lisa isn’t dead,” and that “Angels aren’t dead people, Saints are dead people” (which makes the whole Night of the Living Dead franchise take on a whole new meaning).

But, the REAL reason I am not happy to see “Angel Lisa” in our games…is very simple…

Friday Filler – Land and Storage Management For Christmas

Thank Grog It’s Firday!!

Let’s be honest about it.  We have become a very, very, entitled little bunch when it comes to Christmas updates.  As I wrote about last week, there are FAR more important things in the world to worry about than if we get what we want, when we want, and how we want…in a mobile game.

It’s kind of like what happens to a spoiled kid at Christmas that gets everything on his list…and then gets tired of playing with a lot of his toys, because he has so damn many of them!  Parents end up trying to figure out where to put everything…and kids just move on to the NEXT thing they want.

But, I get it. I saw loads of comments about the dearth of land in the game, combined with the wealth of stuff we are getting in the update. One of you or more actually pushed back when I said, “quit yer whining…I have LOADS of land left to buy” by telling me to do a Friday Filler on Land Management in our games.

Well…me and Santa have a lot in common (besides our love of cinnamon rolls and wassail), so I am going give you your wish, and do just that.

How I have it all…and still have land left to buy…with GAME CASH!!

Christmas 2018 Prize Guide: Act 2, Prize 3 Deep Freeze

Ho Ho Ho Holiday Tappers!

Bust out the tinsel and be sure to hang those stockings by the chimney with care because Christmas time is in the air! That’s right my friends, Christmas (and snow, lots and lots of snow) has hit our pocket-sized towns!

This year EA is trying something different, as I’ve laid out in this post, in that Christmas 2018 consists of multi-events.  Basically, the Simpson family will host four stories to be told over the course of December with a new story releasing each week.  As we’re taken through each story a series of prizes are released to correspond with the theme of the story.  For Week 2, Act 2, we’re following a Buddy Cop tale by Bart, and the prizes we unlock all fit into the snow theme.

So let’s take a look at the third prize this week, Deep Freeze.  A full character for Springfield…

Should I Spend Donuts On Anchor Management and Don Brodka?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Grab your Santa hats and break out the tinsel because it’s Christmas time in Springfield! Yes the annual TSTO Christmas event has arrived in our pocket-sized towns, covering our usual perfect weather towns with a fresh blanket of bright, white, snow!   Of course, by now, we all know that a new event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with limited-time premium items to tempt us.

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Anchor Management and Don Brodka to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this security combo to your town…

Pageant Stage Troubles? WATCH THIS!

Guys…I’ve addressed the Pageant Stage “issue” in two other posts now.  So this is post number 3.  THREE POSTS!  If you haven’t received the Pageant Stage and think you’ve completed all of the tasks for it (and now you’re cursing out EA because it MUST be some kind of glitch in your game) please watch this….

I’m no longer going to answer questions about this issue.  If you don’t want to watch a 1-minute video and you don’t want to read numerous posts and comments on it, I can’t help you.  If I could physically climb through the screen into your real life and play your game for you I would.  But since I can’t this will have to do.

Thank you!

Oh and if you’re stuck on the last part of the questline (AFTER you’ve been awarded the stage), you need to have Milhouse, Ralph AND Lisa free to complete the ensemble task.  It’s a joint task for all three of them.

 

Christmas 2018: Turbo Tappin’ Week 2, A Savage Thaw

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Grab your Santa hats and break out the tinsel because it’s Christmas time in Springfield! Yes the annual TSTO Christmas event has arrived in our pocket-sized towns, covering our usual perfect weather towns with a fresh blanket of bright, white, snow!

While the Christmas event, and snow, are annual the structure of this event is anything but!  This is the first major event in Springfield that’s structured like a mini-event.  Christmas consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the Simpsons Christmas Special!

For Act 2 we’re tasked with following Bart’s Christmas story…all about a pair of buddy cops about the bust open a Christmas case.  Each part of the story will unlock another prize themed for Bart’s story.  So let’s take a look at the details behind Week 2 and the Turbo Tappin’ Version for Bart’s Christmas Story…
