  1. I might be an Addict when I Almost have to send someone to the Bathroom for me!!😁

  2. Your wish/gift list has only App store gift cards on it, but you still remind family members that you would love a gift card for your birthday/Christmas, just so you can buy more donuts.

    You take your device to the restroom with you (I know, some are going “ewww”) LOL

    The first thing you think about when falling & breaking your wrist is “cool, I’ll be able to play even more since I will be off from work”.

    When waiting in the ER, you are wishing the person with you would go to the restroom or to get a bite so you can play without being nagged about how you could be doing more damage (tied in with previous comment).

    You are contemplating buying another device with a larger screen just so it’s easier to play than on your phone.

    TSTO takes priority over food (other THAN DDOOOONNNUUTTTTSSSSS!).

    All of the above is based on true incidents, but the names have been changed to protect the innoc… errr TSTO addict 🙂

    One more, which is only a suspicion:
    Your family is planning an intervention 😉

  3. After leaving the supermarket with a heavy load of groceries, you mutter quietly to yourself “Yarrr. That’s how we do it — land lubber style….” You Might Be An Addict!

  4. You might be an addict if u use tsto as a conversation starter

  5. You might be an addict if u walk past a red leaved plant and think its sideshow bob!

  6. You might be an addict if u can’t stop thinking about tsto when u can’t have your device with you

  7. You might be an addict if you have 3 accounts on 3 devices playing at the same time

  8. You also know your an Addict when you wake with multiple text messages and a couple voicemails but the first thing you do with your phone is check out TSTO ADDICTS for all your Tapped Out info before doing anything else! I know i am an addict bc i have hummed or sung the game music or the show theme while working as well as being guilty of alot of these that are listed lmao!!!

  9. i’ve had 2 glitches that i’m wondering if anyone else has had, first ha been going for a while i have one nieghbor that if i click to visit himer the game crashes (only one neighbor and always the same one) however i have clicked GB’s in my town and handshakes from himer, second glitch and this one only happened once i click a neighbor and hiser town had nothing (no building no people no land) and said s’he was at level 0 then about an hour later the same neighbor was at level 37 and had a town set up

    • If your neighbor has a decoration heavy town or is experiencing game issues, it can keep you from visiting. My town is highly decorated and I have friends say it sometimes freezes their game. It doesn’t keep me from visiting though. The second glitch is a new one to me. Just glad it seems like it fixed itself.

    • I think the first glitch may be bc they replaced you from their side but you haven’t taken them off your side. I had a neighbor that did that and finally logged in and took them off my list.

  10. If the true meaning of Christmas is no longer Jesus or family, but getting everything on that wheel!

  11. You might be an addict when the only reason to cut your phone conversation is to tap your buildings or visit friends! Also you might be an addict if while your tapping your buildings or visiting friends, you get interrupted by a text or phone call and your grumbling under your breath

  12. You might be an addict if when something is said or done your tapped out device seems to go off at the right time ( Better them than me) (Hmm visitors better put on pants ) (Push Notification )

  13. I’m totally going to call my phone my “tapped out device” from now on.. that’s golden 🙂
