Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Building, Week 1

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.

Should I Spend Donuts on Blackbeard & the Ghost Pirate Airship?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Time to grab toast as we travel back…wayyyy back…in time with Homer in the all new TTT (Time Travel Toaster) event!  We’ve flashed forward from the land of Egypt to the era of rum, jolly rogers, pirate ships and scurvy…and of course we’ve got loads of Pirate Era items in our Springfield just temping us with those sprinkles!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome 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 Blackbeard and the Ghost Pirate Airship (or just Blackbeard if you already have the ship) to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this ghostly pirate to your town…

Turbo Tappin’ Time Travel Toaster: Pirate Era (Act 3)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Raise the Jolly Roger!  It’s time to sail our way back through time as the Time Travel Toaster has flashed us into the Pirate Era.  That’s right for this third “Act” Homer will travel back to the days of Pillaging, Plundering, Rum drinking and Scurvy!

As was mentioned on the rundown post the Pirate Era runs until July 5th (when the whole event ends), and you’ll need Homer to get things started.

Don’t forget the Questline will help you get some bonus prize currency…so make sure you complete it to earn that extra currency…

Let’s take a look at the quick walkthrough for the third round of the Time Travel Event, as we go back to the days sailing the high seas and see if Homer can finally get back to be reunited with Marge….

TTT Event – Pirate Era Calendar

Well…I am hoping that all of you “got it all” during the Egyptian Era portion of our little Time Travel Toaster Update.  I took my own advice, and bought the TreeHouse Slide…which seemed to help propel me to an early finish, without buying any of the other Premium Items.

I am hoping the same is true with the Pirate update, as I really do love things that float…and nothing floats my boat like a Pirate Ship! (the sexy pirate not so much… but fair is fair…right?)

This last segment is a tad shorter (thanks for listening EA) but kind of overlaps with the 4th of July…so here’s hoping EA didn’t forget the 4th!

The Calendar looks do-able. Batten the hatches…hoist the jib…and set sail for TREASURE! (or at least an animatronic facsimile thereof~).

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Hang onto your toasters my friends because we’re going flying through space and time!  The latest event in TSTO has us going wayyy back in time to when Dinosaurs roamed the earth, Pharaohs were building pyramids & Pirates hobbled around on their peg legs!

The seventh Egyptian Era Prize awarded at 86,900 is the Egyptian Pyramid and Taskmaster Willie, because it’s not a part until Willie’s flashing everyone in his kilt…

So let’s take a closer look at this seventh prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…

Egyptian Era Is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Egyptian Era of the Time Travel Event Ends TOMORROW June 23rd at 0800 GMT (4am ET).

Once the Egyptian Era is over you will no longer be able to earn Egyptian Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember keep earning papyri you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Era starts…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Era.  As will the Specimen you’ve accumulated.

For a rundown on everything that was included with the Egyptian Era check out our rundown post here.

Be ready for the Pirate Era to start bright and early at 0800 GMT (4am ET) tomorrow morning  (June 23rd)….but make sure to grab those items before the Egyptian Era is history

P.S Good tips before next Era starts…save Daily Challenges that earn you event, save shovels & save your neighbor visits if you’ve earned all of the Egyptian prizes, so you can get a jump start when the next Era starts.
