Should I Spend Donuts On the Returning Real Moms of Springfield Characters?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s time to celebrate all things MOM in our pocket-sized towns, as The Real Moms of Springfield mini-event has made its way to Springfield! What will happen in the new update?  Will Ruth be sent back to prison?  Will Quimby find any long lost children? Will any of this make sense? You’ll have to read the dialogue to find out.  Of course a new mini-event gives EA an excuse to stock our stores with returning premium content, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

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 Real Moms of Springfield Character Combos 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…

Name that TSTO Tune- Sound Effect Smorgasbord

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Tapped Out is a game we’ve all been playing for years, but how well do you really know the game?  Can you guess buildings/characters/items based on sound?  Or are you like me, and play without your sound turned on so you don’t have a clue which sound goes with what?  Well, we’re about to find out!

Each week we’ll be bringing you a Name that TSTO Tune game, based on an era of TSTO of our choosing.  Each sound effect for the week will all be from a certain time period in the game/event, which we will disclose to you, so base your guess off of that knowledge.

Now without further ado, let’s get to this week’s Name that TSTO Tune game!

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Episode Content, Week 3

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.

Friday Filler – It’s a Game Get Over Yourself

Thank Grog It’s Firday,

Well…after a record setting period of “Lulliness,” EA has rewarded us with something clearly meant to be released weeks ago, and is now weirdly late, but also comes with all of the bugginess we have come to expect.  In other words…it’s a SNAFU all over again.  (For those not of military backgrounds…Situation Normal All F’d Up).

Back to “normal” in so many ways…

We got a mini update with bugs. We have people freaking out about the “fairness” of some people getting free characters that others had to earn/purchase/farm for.  We have people losing it over the server disconnects, and the fact that EA only “fixed” the Kindle problem back through the more recent versions of Kindles.

And then…right on cue…we have the “This Neighbor Tagged Me” freakouts back to tattling on those who purposefully or accidentally “vandalized” their towns.

I can’t do much about most of this…but I do have what I consider to be the “Final Word” on “bigbabytaggerwhiners.”
