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…..

We’re in the final Era of the Time Travel Event!  We’ve gone and sailed the high seas with Pirates! What are your thoughts on the Pirate Era?  Where are you in the prize track?  Thoughts on the premiums released so far?

This past Friday Safi launched the all new 2017 Bracket Battle! Where y’all decide on which building you’d like to see in TSTO!  (While we’re not EA and we can’t actually make it happen, it’s still fun to see what the readers want to see…) Have you made your picks?

Speaking of the Bracket Battle…yesterday we launched a new contest geared toward making picks for the Bracket Battle!  Have you entered yet?

How was 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!

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~).

Time Travel Toaster Prize Guide: Egyptian Era, Prize 7 Pyramid and Taskmaster Willie

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!

This Event is broken up into 3 Eras, with each Era 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 Era, Egyptian, you’re tasked with collecting Papyri () to unlock each prize!

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…
