Addicts Bracket Challenge: Best THOH Segment Round 2

We present to you TSTO Addicts’ Best THOH Segment Bracket Battle.

Below you’ll find all 81 beloved THOH segments that will have aired in the first 600 episodes of The Simpsons up to and including this seasons’ THOH XXVII. The segments have been organized into three conferences based on their sequential appearance in each THOH anthology:  first, second, or third segment. The segments will battle each other in four rounds of head-to-head-to-head matchups, that we hope produce the most debate in the comments below. We’ll do our best to convince you of each segments’ merits, but it’s ultimately up to you. Twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays over the next three weeks, we’ll post the matchups and your votes over the next 48 hours will determine which segments advance to the next round, until we’ve crowned “The Best THOH Segment” on Monday October 31st.

Today, we begin Round 2 Voting for TSTO Addicts’ Best THOH Segment Bracket Battle. Details about this Bracket Battle can be found at Addicts Bracket Challenge: Best THOH Segment Round 1, Part 1

Halloween Event 2016 101: Crafting

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah the long awaited, much requested, Crafting post….

Love it or hate it, EA has proven over the last couple of years that crafting is here to stay.  While the prizes themselves are pretty self explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”.  Crafting requires some self direction.  You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly.  Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not. And, as with all things, for some events crafting is easier than others.

Now I know some of you still have questions about what to craft, if you should craft or Level Up, what happens in future Acts…so, as we’ve done in the past, we’re here to break it all down for you.  So let’s take a look at the basics of Crafting for the entire event.

Halloween 2016 Prize Guide: Act 2, Prize 1 Large Mausoleum

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Halloween in our pocket-size Springfields!  Yes that magical time of the year when our towns turn dark, our water becomes mucky and there are monsters everywhere to battle.  Just like October in every other suburban town in America, no?

The Halloween Event is in full swing on our devices and it’s full of creepy decorations, buildings and characters…all designed to get us into the Halloween spirit!

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts, with each Act containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act.  Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the Second Act you’re tasked with collecting Clapboards (ico_cur_thoh2016_clapboard_lg) to unlock each prize!

The First Act 2 Prize is awarded at 6,050 ico_cur_thoh2016_clapboard_lg is the Large Mausoleum, because sometimes Small Mausoleums just won’t do…


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

Totbox’s Throwback Thursday: S2 E12 The Way We Was

Why do Words suddenly appear, every time you are here (on TSTO Addicts)?

*all dolled up in my most prom-iest attire* Would you do me the honor of going to a Prom Themed Throwback with me?

No?! Well I’m going to go by myself then. I remember my first Thowback, it felt fresh and everyone who read it had something to say. It was a while ago but feels like it was yesterday to me *everything getting foggy and …. * Nope, nope. No time for flashbacks, lets focus on the current post (about a flashback episode).

Should I Spend Donuts On THOH Flashback Bundle #2 or the Spooky Wall?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Halloween in our pocket-size Springfields!  Yes that magical time of the year when our towns turn dark, our water becomes mucky, there are monsters everywhere to battle and (as with all events) there are LOADS of items from Halloweens past to spend those sprinkles on!

Wondering if you should add the Halloween Flashback Bundle 2 or the Spooky Wall to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your Springfield…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

You guys are filling up our friend request feeds fast!  With nearly 3000 Add Me Requests (inc the Vandalize free feed) since the Halloween event started you’re making new friends left and right!  So we’ve decided to start new, with a fresh Add Friends feed to make this easier to find (and we’ve updated the Vandalize free thread too).

It’s Halloween in Springfield!   And as we know Friends play a big part in this one, so it’s time for an all new Add Friends feed!

So now…hit up this post with your Origin ID’s and Add Me Requests!  Who wants to be first?

Pssssst….If you’re looking for a thread to find neighbor-eenos who WON’T vandalize you check out this Add-Me page…now Graffiti free! 🙂

And remember…if you’re looking for ways you can THANK your neighbors for visiting, tell them you LOVE their designs…or even yell at them for stealing your designs…you can hit up our THANK YOU Thread!  The only place in the TSTO-verse where you can freely Thank and Admire your TSTO Friends and Neighbors!

Happy Tapping!


Add Friends- Vandalism Free 5

Remember this post is for those who won’t vandalize each other…if you’re looking for the regular Add Me Page you can find it here

Time for a little vandalism clean up…as the old thread was getting quite full (over 1,000 comments)…so it’s time to start fresh once again!

Do you hate getting graffiti in your Springfield?  Are you tired of cleaning up after other people’s fun, at your expense?  Are you someone that NEVER Vandalizes other towns?  Are you super concerned about your Righteousness rating…no matter how many Training Walls you build?  Well this is the Add Friends Thread for You!

no paint


Here’s your thread for those of you who PLEDGE NOT TO VANDALIZE EACH OTHER’S TOWNS!  If you can’t keep that pledge…please don’t add your name to this thread.  

IMPORTANT…..Include that you WILL NOT VANDALIZE in your comment with your request.  DO NOT put your name on this list AND the other list.  This is the list for those who pledge NOT to vandalize…if you put your ID on both lists we will delete it from this one.

Here’s what’s allowed on this thread:

-Origin ID (Add Me Request) with Pledge Not to Vandalize
-Posts saying you added someone
-Post ONLY to say ” —- tagged me”
-Post apologizing to someone for accidentally tagging them

It is up to YOU to decide who you want on your friends list. If you don’t want them, take them off. That simple.

Thank you! Happy Tapping!

Should I Buy the Shinning Hotel and Maze Bundle?


As with all of the recent updates, and especially the HUGE major updates (including the one in which we now find ourselves deeply immersed), there are LOADS of opportunities to purchase buildings, decorations, and characters from updates past. Some call ’em “Retreads,” others call ’em “A Second Chance to Get What I Missed,” and still others call them nothing at all…but still pull the Donut Trigger when they are offered.

In this installment of “Should I Buy?” I cover the Shinning Hotel and Maze combo. Is my DTF (Donut Trigger Finger) itchy? Or will I keep the safety locked firmly in position?

Let’s take a look….
