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…..

ICYMI Addicts Live was all new yesterday.  The first live episode of 2019!  We talked all things Alice Glick and Golden Goose.  Check it out here.

We’re nearing the end of the Alice Glick Mini-Event, have you unlocked all of the prizes?  What do you think we’ll see next?

And finally, how about the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

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!

Friday Filler – Killing Three Geese With One Stone

Thank Grog It’s Firday! 

I can’t believe how many questions the addition of the Golden Goose Real Estate building opened up!  Three HUGE questions, or “goose chases,” that really forced me to do some serious research, math, and some additional Goose Guessing!

The Questions?
1. How Many Land Sections Are There, and how many do I have left?
2. Does it make sense for me to hoard my Free GGR land certificates, or should I move ahead and turn them in for Free Donuts?
3. Where in the heck is “True North” in TSTO?

Well…as much as it seems to be an impossible task to answer all of these in one single post, I am just the tapper to take it on!

Let’s start with Goose Guess Number One…

Showoff Announcement: Not Yet Spring Cleaning

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’re nearing done with the first event of 2019!  And I know it’s unusual, but I want to see what you’ve done with all of this Spring Cleaning Stuff!  With two houses, a university, a hockey rink, and a factory I want to see what you’ve done with all of this stuff!  How you incorporated it into Springfield, and if it’s all working for you.

So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!…because it’s always so helpful to see what others have done with all this new stuff!   So send us your Not Yet Spring Cleaning inspired designs and we’ll be putting up the Showoff post, featuring your designs, on Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019…so you’ve got the weekend to get your town to your liking and send in those shots!

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET MONDAY, January 21st, 2019.  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.

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.) 

Not Yet Spring Cleaning: Mystery of the Brown House

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

2019 in TSTO has started with a very weird questline.  Alice Glick has finally arrived in Springfield, and she’s brought a very weird mystery with her that the kids need to solve.  The Mystery of the Brown House.

The writers have definitely taken an interesting twist with this one, so I thought i’d be fun to share the dialogue for those who may have quickly tapped through it.  So let’s take a look at this Mystery of the Brown house…

Not Yet Spring Cleaning Prize Breakdown: Alice Glick and her Animation

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

2019 is in full swing and we’re in the midst of our first new update of the year!  The Not Yet Spring Cleaning mini-event brings a new prize track to Springfield, one full of buildings and a new character!  For ease I thought I’d break the prizes down into two posts, one for the buildings and one just for Alice Glick and her animated task.

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the Mystery of the Brown House questline, you’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

So let’s take a look at Alice Glick and her animated task, the 3rd and 5th prize of this mini-event…

Should I Spend Donuts On the Stonecutters Returning Content?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’re a few days into 2019 and it’s time for our first update of the year!  Not Yet Spring Cleaning, the latest mini-event in Springfield, is full of content we’ve been asking for! (Springfield U, Alice Glick, Land Tokens..to say the least!) Of course, by now, we all know that a new mini-event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with returning limited-time premium items to tempt us.

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 the returning Stonecutters content to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…
