Turbo Tappin’ Christmas 2013: Santa Flanders

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers,

Well it’s the Friday before Christmas, are you getting excited for Santa yet?!  Let’s break into the holiday spirit and prep ourselves for Santa’s arrival with a Turbo Tappin’ Walkthrough of Santa Flanders!

Santa Flanders is a Personal Prize that unlocks at the 22,000 Gift Cards Collected.  You can check out details of unlocking him on this post here.  Once you unlock Santa Flanders a 5 part quest should auto-start for Flanders (in the Santa Flanders costume).   If it doesn’t auto-start check to see if Flanders is on another task, and that he’s in his Santa skin.  If he’s not Santa, tap on Flanders and toggle to Santa.  If he IS Santa but the quest still doesn’t start, try hard closing the app and restarting.  That should (hopefully) “kick-start” the quest.

So let’s jump into the Christmas spirit….here’s your Turbo Tappin’ Santa Flanders Walkthrough Continue reading

A holiday WDTCF Ramble about the Egg Nog Bar and Santa Flanders

Whaaaaaazuuuuuuup!  Do you remember that obnoxious advertising campaign?  If not, Mytube has them I’m sure.  They were beer commercials.  Funny at first and then mildly irritating and then searing your brain cells.

One of the best parts of getting to blog on this site is sharing my love of The Simpsons with anyone who takes the time to read my words.  I love the show and have seen every episode at least once.  Recently, I’ve had a great excuse to re-watch them more and more just to talk about decorations, characters and buildings that have been added to TSTO.

Watching every episode, I can’t help but notice that the available content for TSTO is enormous!  Any watcher could rattle off at least one thing they think should have been added to the game already.  I’m actually mildly jealous of the folks who get to do this for EA.  Anywho, with the holiday update, a lot of content got added to the game.  Much of it is from Christmas episodes and some is from classic episodes.  Looking at all the new stuff, I picture a boardroom full of nerds like myself pitching their ideas.  I know there was at least one lazy guy who mentioned the totem pole which was designed eons ago, definitely one weasel with a flair for consumerism (and getting folks to spend donuts) and probably a dude who has gambled a little too much online.  In addition, one of them definitely loved the 500th Simpsons episode aka Season 23, Episode 14: “At Long Last”.

EA did their utmost to give us a ton of new stuff in the holiday update and for a Simpsons nerd like me, I couldn’t be happier.  One of my favorite things is that besides all the stuff from episodes, we may have actually got some original content!  What might be unique?  Two things, The Egg Nog Bar and Santa Flanders.
