Turbo Tappin’ Premium Stuff: Señor Ding Dong

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Last week EA dropped an “old school” update into our pocket sized Springfields… Superheroes 3.  Another quick round of “up and atom”, with a short questline and a bunch of new and returning items in our stores.  One new premium character made it to our stores, Señor Ding Dong.  As with all premium characters, Señor Ding Dong comes with a full (hilarious) questline to work your way though.

So, let’s take a quick look at the Turbo Tappin’ version of Señor Ding Dong’s new questline..

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…..

Don’t forget voting is open in the latest Bracket Battle!  Pick your favorite buildings to advance!

 

So, this week it was out with the old and in with the..old? Yes, we saw the return of Superheroes this week.  Don’t worry though, just a small little update with mostly items to purchase.  We suspect the next big thing will hit us in August…what do you think it will be?

How was the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting? Can you believe July is almost over?

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!

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Building, Week 5

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there are plenty of buildings in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. We present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Building Bracket Battle.

Showoff Announcement: Reader’s Choice

First I want to add a little note…I know a bunch of you are waiting on SIB posts for the new content.  I’m working on them.  My plans for today got a little derailed as the Tiny Addict is currently under the weather and I had to pick her up from school early.  So you won’t be seeing the SIBs today, but I will make it up to you tomorrow. Thanks for your patience! -Alissa 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Addict Designers!  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff, and I thought with a little lull in the game let’s have a little Showoff fun.  This time around it’s READER’S CHOICE!   So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

The next showoff will feature whichever areas of your Springfield that you want to show!  (again remember limit it to 1-2 of your favorite areas/photos…we can’t show your whole down, unless you want to do a giant stitch of your town into 1 photo)  Sure we could do another Superheroes Showoff, but we’ve already done that….twice (here and here, if you’re looking for inspiration)! So I thought this would be more fun.

So use this downtime to polish up your town and show us how creative you can be!  Send in your Reader’s Choice areas from your Springfield and we’ll be putting up the Showoff Post featuring your designs on Monday July 31st.

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET Sunday July 30th (giving you loads of time to get your areas together) can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.

You can send your designs in two ways…either post a link to the image in the comments on this post or you can email them to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  We won’t be pulling images from anywhere else, so please if you want to be featured either submit in the comments below or email your images to us.

IF you Email your submissions please put Showoff Reader’s Choice in the subject line, and make sure your photos are in JPEG or PNG format..please.  Also, be sure your submissions are in on time.

Note: PLEASE try to limit your submissions to only 1-2 of your favorite screenshots.  We like to try and let everyone showoff their town but it becomes difficult when some of you are sending in 7-10 images.  Pick your favorite areas and send them in (or if you stitch photos together, that works too).  We’ll try our best to get EVERYONE in, but please understand that sometimes we miss a photo or two.  If we miss you one week, we’ll try really hard to make sure we get you in the next week.  You’re always welcome to showoff your town, at any time, on our Flickr page.  We know a lot of you have awesome towns that you want to show off, but please try to stick with this week’s theme.  Remember, this isn’t a contest.  There’s nothing to win.  It’s just a fun way to showoff your town and get some design inspiration from your fellow Addicts.  🙂   

Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff?  Post your images  in the Comments below or email us your screenshots at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.) 

Predictability and Speculation, It All Comes Down To Timing…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

I couldn’t help but notice yesterday when Superheroes 3 hit many of you expressed disappointment that it wasn’t a major event.  You were expecting EA’s usual format..big event, mini event, big event…and it didn’t happen this time around.  Instead we got an “old school” update.  Some new dialogue and a bunch of items in the store.

For those of you confused as to why EA’s not following their traditional format (Big event, mini event, big event)…I talked about this in the comments earlier this week, let’s do a little forecasting and speculation (really any excuse to bust out my crystal ball..)…
