Spending actual cash on donuts for a character is back in TSTO. This is something EA’s been rolling out over the last few years, and it’s a new bonus for actually spending cash on donuts. (instead of just farming them) Where they attach a premium, limited-time, character to one of the donut bundles sometimes in addition to bonus donuts.
And I want to be perfectly clear…you do not need to buy these characters to complete an event. You can still play this game, and complete all the tasks and prizes, 100% free. These cash-for-character items are a new type of premium currency…because donuts have been so devalued with donut farming.
This time around we’re being offered Daisy McGunnan, a premium character, for a tray of 132 Donuts ($9.99 in the US)..no bonus this time around. While it’s hard for me to sit here and tell you if you should or shouldn’t spend actual cash on the game (spoiler, I think you should always spend at least a small amount…even if it’s $.99/year on the game if it brings you joy and you want to see it continue) I thought I’d do a quick breakdown of Daisy, tasks, questline and other details you may be curious about.
So let’s consider this an abbreviated Should I Buy….
It’s time for a little bounty hunting in Springfield! Breakout Bounty is an all-new mini-event to hit our pocket-sized towns, and it’s full of bounty hunters, convicts, and everything in-between! Of course, an all-new event means all-new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!
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 Wolf the Bounty Hunter and Bail Bonds to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this combo to your town…
There’s an app store update available in our stores for TSTO…this will remove the Simpsonsverse event from your game, and change the splash screen back to “normal”.
Along with this update, comes the pre-load for our next mini-event…Breakout Bounty!
This mini-event will not start until TOMORROW, September 15th, @ 11am ET…so please don’t ask why it hasn’t started for you if it’s before September 15th at 11am on the East Coast of the US. (and if it’s after that time, it’s likely because you haven’t updated from the app store)
Until the mini-event starts…here’s a little teaser about what will be included with the new mini-event…
So look for Breakout Bounty to start tomorrow, September 15th, at 11am ET…until then make sure you download the update from the app store!
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…..
Lots of things you may have missed this week around the Addicts Site:
The Simpsonsverse even is officially over, thoughts on it? What do you think we’ll see next? Should be a mini-event next, followed by Halloween. Ideas for either?
How’s your Springfield design coming? What are you doing with your town? Share some photos in the comments below! (If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post) Don’t forget about Showoff this week!
Any weekend excitement going on in your neck of the woods? Have anything fun planned?
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!
First let me start this with a little disclaimer. I know this is a blog about The Simpsons Tapped Out and I also know that this is a blog read by more than just Americans. However, all of the Addicts writers are from America or routinely work in America and we feel as though it just wouldn’t be right to let today pass with out something. Thank you for your understanding and respect.
Today is September 11th 2021, the 20th anniversary of the attacks on America, where 2,977 innocent people were killed while just going about their every day lives. Today we would like to take a moment to honor all those innocent lives that were lost in New York City, Shanksville PA, and Washington DC.
I ask you, the readers of this blog, to take a moment today to reflect on that day and honor those who lost their lives.
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!
This Caption This! image is brought to us by Mike…
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!
Your senses can evoke powerful memories in you. The smell of saltwater can trigger you back to your youth spent at the beach, the touch of cotton can bring you back to memories of your mom, and hearing sounds of TSTO can bring back countless hours spent tap, tap, tapping away.
So let’s take a trip down memory lane via the sound effects of TSTO…
