Should I Spend Donuts On Teenage Smithers and the Malibu Stacy Fan Club?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

TSTO is back baby!  We’re FINALLY getting on, what feels like, a somewhat normal update schedule!  Praise Jebus! The theme of this multi-event?  Simpson Babies. Of course, an all-new mini-event means all-new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

Wondering if you should add Teenage Smithers and the Malibu Stacy Fan Club to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this pretty in pink combo to your town…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Round 3 of the Simpsons Babies Event is live in our games! What will happen during Week 3 of this Baby mystery?  You’ll have to read the dialogue to find out…

As we’ve said before, the Simpsons Babies event follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event! (remember, the next part won’t release until next Wednesday)

Simpson Babies Week 3 Is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Simpsons Babies Week 3 is Live!

Things kick off for week 3 with some dialogue between CBG, Lisa, and Bart…

CBG: Interesting. Various characters are reverse-aging into babies, much as in classic Futurama episode 4ACV09. Although in that story the device was called a “Youth-a-sizer”, not a “Youthenizer”, so this is very, very different.
Lisa: Instead of nitpicking sarcastically, why don’t you help for once?
Bart: Yeah! Like, tell us how superheroes would un-reverse the aging process.
CBG: Well, let’s see. In the movie Superman, the hero of the same name reversed Earth’s rotation, causing time to run backwards. However, that’s the third stupidest thing in history, behind two things Aquaman did that are too embarrassing to discuss.

This triggers the week 3 questline, The Sleuthenizer, and is followed by a 4hr tasks for Bart and Lisa., as well as a task to collect Week 3 Currency (50).  The Sleuthenizer is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Week 3 prizes.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during week 3…

Simpsons Babies Week 3 is About to Start

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow morning, Wednesday, August 21st, Week 3 (Act 3) of Simpsons Babies will be starting.  The official start time is 10am ET (1400 UTC).

Note: Week 3 has not started yet. This post is meant to serve as a warning.  It will not start until Wednesday, August 21st, at 10am ET (1400 UTC).  If you’re wondering why it hasn’t started for you yet check your calendar and a watch.  

The Week 2 questline won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Week 3 starts (this applies for the week 1 questline/prize track as well).  However, all of the Week 2 Premium items will be leaving the store.

So if you planned to purchase Young Burns and Colonel Burns’ Mansion do so before they leave our games tomorrow morning. (SIBs Linked)

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Week 3 to start…

During Week 3 Lisa and Bart will frantically turn to other (un-youthenized) adults in Springfield, including Professor Frink.  And the storyline will end with Lisa Youthenizing herself!  You’ll have to follow along with the dialogue to find out what happens, but here are the characters needed for week 3 tasks:

Homer
Marge
Bart
Lisa
Grampa
Maggie
Dewey Largo (NEW for Act 3. Replaces Ned from Act 2)
Baby Moe (Premium)
Baby Barney (Premium)
New Act 3 Premium Character

You’ll also need Bart and Lisa free for the initial questline objective…

There will also be one new premium character combo introduced during week 3, and that character will be able to help with the currency earning for week 3.  (150 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase the character)

And that’s it my friends!  Be prepared for Week 3 to start up tomorrow morning!

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Episode Content, Week 16 (The Final Four)

It was five years ago, just after the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs bracket was complete that I thought it might be cool to do a The Simpsons Tapped Out bracket. Here we are in the thick of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs again, and it’s time for our fifth TSTO Addicts Bracket Battle!

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there is A LOT of content in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. There is so much in fact, that it was hard just to narrow it down to 64 entries to start with. With that in mind, we present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Episode Content Bracket Battle.
