Simpsons Babies Week 3 is About to Start

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow morning, Wednesday, August 21st, Week 3 (Act 3) of Simpsons Babies will be starting.  The official start time is 10am ET (1400 UTC).

Note: Week 3 has not started yet. This post is meant to serve as a warning.  It will not start until Wednesday, August 21st, at 10am ET (1400 UTC).  If you’re wondering why it hasn’t started for you yet check your calendar and a watch.  

The Week 2 questline won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Week 3 starts (this applies for the week 1 questline/prize track as well).  However, all of the Week 2 Premium items will be leaving the store.

So if you planned to purchase Young Burns and Colonel Burns’ Mansion do so before they leave our games tomorrow morning. (SIBs Linked)

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Week 3 to start…

During Week 3 Lisa and Bart will frantically turn to other (un-youthenized) adults in Springfield, including Professor Frink.  And the storyline will end with Lisa Youthenizing herself!  You’ll have to follow along with the dialogue to find out what happens, but here are the characters needed for week 3 tasks:

Homer
Marge
Bart
Lisa
Grampa
Maggie
Dewey Largo (NEW for Act 3. Replaces Ned from Act 2)
Baby Moe (Premium)
Baby Barney (Premium)
New Act 3 Premium Character

You’ll also need Bart and Lisa free for the initial questline objective…

There will also be one new premium character combo introduced during week 3, and that character will be able to help with the currency earning for week 3.  (150 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase the character)

And that’s it my friends!  Be prepared for Week 3 to start up tomorrow morning!

Thoughts on week 2?  Ready for week 3?  Excited to see where the story goes?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

8/19 App Store Update: Crash Bug Patch

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A new app store update is out for TSTO. No, this isn’t for new content. This update is a patch many players have been waiting for… it’s the attempt to fix the crashing bug.

So download the update if your game has been crashing and see if it’s working for you now.  Remember it’s an app store update, so check your app stores for it.  You may have to search Tapped Out to see it.

Hopefully this is the fix many of you have been waiting for!  Let us know if it is in the comments below…

Simpson Babies: Week 2 Questline, Premium Character Young Burns

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Round 2 of the Simpsons Babies Event is live in our games, praise Jebus! What will happen during Week 2 of this Baby mystery?  You’ll have to read the dialogue to find out, good thing I’ve typed it out below…

Simpsons Babies follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!

With Act 2, week 2, one new premium character was introduced. In addition to helping with event currency, Yuong Burns comes with his own, short, confusing, individual questline, so let’s take a look at the full dialogue questline now.

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Episode Content, Week 16 (The Final Four)

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.

Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments!

When we can, we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

It’s Saturday. It’s August. A pretty easy event is going on.  So, let’s have some fun!  Here’s a Saturday Caption This Round-Up to keep you entertained…

Friday Filler – Dear EA…Meet Safi!

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Yes…it has been a week to remember.  Wife got a new hip (I’m on CareGiver Mode)..I am almost done with the 2nd bathroom remodel (I’m also in builder/fixer/painter/plumber/carpenter mode), and TSTO/EA continues to keep feeding us characters and content. Two of those make me happy…

I know some of you love this update (CJBrown, you know who you are…). But, I guess I have to just “go with the flow…and throw in the towel” as it comes to anything resembling the Time Space Continuum.

And man…. EA…have you met Safi??  He’s the one who has been doing Bracket Battles to bring us ideas of the most anticipated and coveted characters and content in the game. In short…he is doing YOUR JOB…but you are apparently ignoring him.  But, I’ll get to that.

Should I Spend Donuts On Colonel Burns’ Mansion and Young Burns?

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!

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 Colonel Burns’ Mansion and Young Burns to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this old-timey combo to your town…

Some Random August Musings…

Happy Musings Thursday my friends! It’s been a little while since I’ve shared my thoughts with you.  To be honest, crazy summer mixed with slow game activity has really limited my TSTO related thoughts these days.
Anyway, now that we’re halfway through August and in the middle of a new TSTO event I thought it was time to muse a bit about TSTO.  I’ve got some random thoughts, so let’s get to ’em…
