A Caption This While We Wait…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well guys, the timer ran out on Valentine’s Day 2 days ago and we’re all still waiting. Waiting and waiting to see what’s coming next…some more patiently than others. The truth is only EA knows who or what is coming next or even when it’s coming.

So, while we wait I thought we’d have a little fun with a few funny Caption This submissions…

So hey Addicts, caption this!

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Character – A 30 Month Retrospective!

Hey Tappers!

Two and a half years ago yesterday, we saw 73 characters (64 including 8 combos) not yet in our games battle it out in 10 weeks of vigorous head-to-head matchups, we crowned the winner of the very first Bracket Battle on August 19th 2016 in this post here.

However, over the past two and a half years, we have seen many of those 64 characters enter our towns. So let’s take a look back and see just how much the game has changed over the past thirty months.

Let’s start by taking a look back at the final Bracket:

Springfield Showoff: Love, Springfieldian Style

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we sometimes find ourselves forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU.

So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in-game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small and brag about it to the world. We want you to! Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Love, Springfieldian Style: Week 4 Questline All Dogs Go to Jail

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Love is in the air friends!  Yes, Valentine’s Day is back in our pocket-sized towns!  And this time around things are going to be done, Springfieldian Style.

Love, Springfieldian Style follows the same event structure that the Simpsons Christmas Special event followed.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!

It’s time for the exciting conclusion of Love, Springfieldian Style!  For Act 4 we’re following Snake’s totally made up story about some dogs, we also see how the story ends and if the Valentine’s Day Cards are spared!  So let’s take a look at Snake’s story…

Love, Springfieldian Style Building Tasks

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As we near the end of the Love, Springfieldian Style Event and take a look at that prize haul it can be a bit overwhelming.  With an event that ran, just about, 4 weeks it can be hard to remember what arrived with week 1 and just want it did.  It can also be hard just remembering what they heck came with this event.

While I break down each item individually and include character tasks there, if there are any, it can be difficult to remember just who goes where.  So I’ve compiled one list of all the character tasks associated with a building.  Now you’ve got one place to go back and look to see which character animates which building from the Valentine’s Day Event.

So let’s take a look…

Love, Springfieldian Style is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Valentines Event Ends TOMORROW February 19th. 

As far as questlines go, what’s happened in the past is that the current prize you’re working on (on any questline) you were able to finish.  Once that current prize was completed then the questline disappeared.  

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “M”)


Hi, I’m Super Safi and you may remember me from such stats and strategy posts as Kwik-E-Mart Farming and the advanced losing-to-win Superheroes battle strategy.

Over the past 600+ episodes, The Simpsons has taken us on an amazing mathematical journey involving fractions, probability, Fermat’s last theorem, and hundreds of other aspects from the wonderful world off mathematics.

And what better way to start your week, then by discussing math Monday morning?

This week, we’re going to look at one of the most well known equations from the world of physics, Einstein’s Mass–Energy Equivalence.
