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.

Episode 50- What a Buncha Babies

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to Addicts Live!  Unfortunately, YouTube has discontinued the software we use for Livestreaming the show, so we’re no longer live…in the sense that you can interact with us while we’re recording the show.  But we still wanted to bring you great TSTO content, in the form of our Podcast and video, so that’s exactly what we’ve done for you guys by pre-recording the show.

As much of a bummer is that we’re no longer doing the live stream, pre-recording it allows for some flexibility as to when we record, which means you’re more likely to get all the Addicts together for the show than before!  Great bonus! 🙂

So we hope you enjoy this week’s episode, as much as we enjoyed putting it together…

The Addicts are back from their summer vacations and all they got you is this all-new episode of Addicts Live!  Episode 5-0! A big one for the Addicts, so they’ve gathered the whole team…yes even Wookiee too… talk all things TSTO.

You won’t want to miss all the laughs this episode has to offer, so join Alissa, Wookiee, Patric, and Safi in this episode as they talk all things Flanders Family Reunion and Simpsons Babies! As a bonus, you’ll find out what was said that took the show off the rails with laughter!

You can download this episode from Apple Podcasts, Google Play, or listen to it below!

Friday Filler – When You’re Out of Ideas Offer Donuts

Thank Grog It’s Firday,

I’m not going to lie. This week almost did me in.  As Ringo Starr once screamed into a studio mic, “I’ve got blisters on my fingers!!!” (between Revolution No. 9 and Helter Skelter on the White Album). In fact, it is likely just blisters from juggling…and juggling…and juggling.

So when one of my true escapes from my “clown circus life” starts getting lazy, it really bums me up. TSTO/EA/Gracie is really dropping the ball in regards to content for this update…unless you are a new player…which I am not.

I hate whining at this point…as we should all just be happy the game is still around. But, come on… a dozen donuts instead of a Major Premium Character?
Have they lost their minds??????

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

TSTO is back baby!  We’re FINALLY getting on, what feels like, a somewhat normal update schedule!  Praise Jebus! The theme of this multi-event?  Simpson Babies. Of course, an all-new mini-event means all-new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

Wondering if you should add Teenage Smithers and the Malibu Stacy Fan Club to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this pretty in pink combo to your town…

Simpson Babies Week 3 Is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Simpsons Babies Week 3 is Live!

Things kick off for week 3 with some dialogue between CBG, Lisa, and Bart…

CBG: Interesting. Various characters are reverse-aging into babies, much as in classic Futurama episode 4ACV09. Although in that story the device was called a “Youth-a-sizer”, not a “Youthenizer”, so this is very, very different.
Lisa: Instead of nitpicking sarcastically, why don’t you help for once?
Bart: Yeah! Like, tell us how superheroes would un-reverse the aging process.
CBG: Well, let’s see. In the movie Superman, the hero of the same name reversed Earth’s rotation, causing time to run backwards. However, that’s the third stupidest thing in history, behind two things Aquaman did that are too embarrassing to discuss.

This triggers the week 3 questline, The Sleuthenizer, and is followed by a 4hr tasks for Bart and Lisa., as well as a task to collect Week 3 Currency (50).  The Sleuthenizer is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Week 3 prizes.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during week 3…
