Don’t be scared… TSTO Anonymous is back!

Hey hidey ho Addicterinos!

Wookiee here back with our regular TSTO Anonymous meeting and just in the nick of time based on some comments I saw.


Wowza, what a week to discuss our addiction.  October 1st gave us the highly anticipated Halloween Event and what and EVENT it has turned out to be.

Possessed Characters

Haunted Buildings

Gremlins, ghosts and GOO (Oh my!)

A new look to the town and decorations


The return of last year’s premium buildings, decorations and skins

The return of some of last year’s zombies

D’oh!  Wrong word (now that’s scary).  What I meant was a new social aspect to the game which makes all the previous ones seem as dumb as whacking snakes.  Who’d want to do that?

So much new stuff to play with… so few hours in a day.   What do you mean there’s 24?  Don’t you know this is Wookiee Hibernation Season?   I mean, I know I have A LOT of free time to do “stuff”, but even my loved ones are noticing my absence.

I tried to tell them they don’t see it from my Perspective, but the truth is they probably never will unless they play the game too.  I have never been “addicted” to a game platform before TSTO.  Always kinda teased on those addicted to their consoles or computer games (WOW, any one?).  Now I get it.  EA has found my drug of choice and I’m loving it.  Apologies to any one I ever teased btw.

If you’re feeling misunderstood like me (stupid 14 year old won’t visit her town and then complains about missing the sushi cart, WHY YOU LITTLE!), the easiest fix is to find like minded souls.


How do you do this?  EASY!  Here’s a couple ideas:

First step is just to make sure you have a bunch of active neighborinos… you can find plenty on our friends page. (324 comments on there as I type this!)

Numero dos, Check out the Addicts NEW Forum page at  You can chat with other Addicterinos there and maybe even coordinate helping each other out with gaining Halloween goodies!  As a bonus, all you have to do to get there is click on the

Idea # 3… Like us on Facebook (The Simpsons Tapped Out Addicts)… 2,297 other Addicts already have!

Use the fourth…. Go to  Please note that since the Halloween Update, the site has had possession issue of its own so it may be a couple days before it is back in action and running like it used to.  Most of the authors here frequent that site too!

Lastly, (Dare I say it?) share an e-mail address with another tapper and maybe actually form a “friendship”.  I am so blessed to talk to the other authors of Addicts on a daily basis AND sometimes we actually chat about non-simpsons stuff (GASP!  The horror…. The horror).


Hopefully everyone is going to get a little more social this Halloween season.  Nothing like some SPOOKY stuff to get people closer together.  No one else understands addiction like an Addict.  Who knows?  Maybe you’ll even find a sponsor?

Well, this concludes this bi-monthly meeting.  Take care Addicts and remember that together we can do this… one tap at a time.

Let’s end with the TSTOA Serenity Prayer.

“EA, grant me the serenity to accept the updates I cannot change, the courage to recommend the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”
