New Holiday Contest: Santa’s Coming Early!

Christmas is coming to Springfield, have you been naughty or nice?  Let’s find out with another Addicts contest! THE CONTEST IS OFFICIALLY OPEN! 
Tapped_Out_Mystery_Stocking

Twas 3 weeks before Christmas and all through the blogs
Everyone was scurrying to cover their jobs
The stockings were hung by the myPads with care   
In hopes that EA would drop donuts in there! 

The Addicts were all rested all set to prepare
Tons of great posts for the readers with care!
With the Wookiee in the Attic and the Bunny in the basement
Christmas surly would be covered by their recent placement!

When down in the basement there arose such a clatter,
Alissa ran down the stairs to see what was the matter.
Away to the corner where Bunny was twitchy,
You see this holiday season she was feeling quite grinchy!

The moonlight shining through the windows that night,
Lit up the basement to reveal quite a sight!
Bunny had used all of her donuts for 2D art,
Quick we need to do something to warm her grinchy heart!

So Alissa called up to Wookiee, “we need to do something drastic”
Then Wookiee suggested “how about a contest, wouldn’t that’d be fantastic?”
A contest where Tappers can design their own art,
Might be just what we need to warm Bunny’s heart! 

The prizes shall be donuts, so the task won’t seem like a chore!
We’ll give away Boats, Stores & Trucks full of donuts galore! 
Bunny’s grinchyness has been lifted and replaced with some crazy,
Now I think it’s time to end this, the Tappers eyes are looking glazy!

Random Fuzzy Thoughts on the New Tie-In

Hey there party people!

So… as most of you know, today EA surprised all of us with an episode tie-in update.  While most have us had thrown snow-chains on our dead Springfield vehicles and gotten our decorations up for passer-bys, instead, we got something completely different.  Let’s all be honest.  Every one’s been waiting for snow and Christmas and instead gotten socks and regular weather, right?

This got me thinking (I know, dangerous territory)… EA is pretty sneaky.  Once upon a time, we all knew way in advance what Mom and Dad had bought for us in the store and the weather was way more predictable.  Turns out the proverbial parents and weatherman just don’t like that archaic formula.  The truth is, I couldn’t be more thrilled.

Should I Spend Donuts On- USS Tom Clancy

With a new Premium item just added to our menu, it may be overwhelming trying to decide whether to buy it or to pass on it. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the USS Tom Clancy Submarine to your Springfield Squidport? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this.

usstomclancy_menu

Decoration: USS Tom Clancy Submarine)
Donut Price: 50 Donuts
Unique?: Yes

Pros:
-2.25% bonus money and XP to all Jobs.
-A reallygreat payout for only 50 donuts
-A GIANT SUBMARINE FOR YOUR SQUIDPORT!!! EEEEEEEEEE!

Cons:
-Not associated with any characters or tasks.
-Doesn’t have any animation

Final Thought:
I personally just REALLY like just the look of it and that for me is reason enough to buy it. It adds yet another new element to your Squidport. I know it does not have animation or sound. Also, Christmas is coming soon. So unless you’re a completest or you want a giant submarine for your Squidport, you may want to think hard on this one. Just don’t wait too long. The tie-in episode is Sunday, it IS a Limited Item and will be gone after Sunday, and you never know if more will be done with it once the New Simpsons TV Episode is released Sunday.
