From the Mouths of Addicts: Addicts Anonymous…The Snow Monster


Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post comes to us from a true Addict, Tapper pkkao.  It’s a humorous take on the Holiday Wheel and  the lengths one Tapper went just to clear that darn wheel!  Enjoy it my friends…I know I did!

A sadly true anecdote that I have to write.

It’s January 13, 10 PM. The Christmas update is about 8 hours away from ending, and my wheel looks cleared — except for the Snow Monster. Being the “freemium completest” (must have everything I can get without spending a penny), I could not live without the Snow Monster, even if I didn’t want that prize especially (ClausCo was the one I coveted the most).

 My spin token count is at a sad 0, and when I try to spin I get the dreaded message of “Out of Spin Tokens.” In 45 minutes, my Egg Nog Bar will produce a single spin token. All my hopes lied on that token to hit the improbable 5% chance of Snow Monster. Might as well wait an extra hour, right? It’s worth getting the snow monster, right? Continue reading

Insert shameless plug from the Addicts here: The Adipose TV

Note from Alissa: (I promise I won’t be hijacking everyone’s posts from now on) Just about 11 AM here on the East Coast of the US and no update to report of yet.  Thought for those of you enjoying the bright, green Springfield again you might enjoy some design ideas for your TSTO Houses.  Check out this great post from Wookiee and share your designs with us on our Flickr page, in the comments below, on Facebook or via email (TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com) and you never know…you just might be featured in our next Springfield Showoff post! 

Hello Addicterinos!

In the TSTO Blogosphere, there is a lot of information out there for all to enjoy.  While Addicts has you covered with lots and lots of words, there are some amazing folks out there covering all this amazing Simpsons game stuff with video blogs containing lots and lots of words lol.  My favorite of these VBloggers is the one and only Adipose.

Troubleshooting 101 – THAT’S NOT MY GAME!

Bunny here. Putting on my glasses, getting out my pocket protector, and getting my magic fingers and thumbs ready to type those zeroes and ones. Basically…it’s Nerdy Time!!

For whatever various reasons, our game likes to frak with our minds and heads and nothing seems to quite go right. We panic. Throw our device. Scream. Yell. There may be many tears as well.  Just slowly take your thumbs/fingers off the device or you may crack the screen. Lol.  It’s ok. I am here to help. All of us are. Promise.

I Didn’t Update Out of Christmas….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So how many of you have actually updated to the Christmas removal of TSTO today?  How many of you are still waiting until it forces you to do so so that you can collect every last Gift Card and free prize you can?  If you’re in the second category this post is for you!


Here’s the deal….normally friend requests are to only go on our Add Neighboreenos page HOWEVER we’re going to make a LIMITED TIME exception.  If you’re a Tapper who did not update out of Christmas because you’re hoping to collect the last xxx gift cards you need for the Personal Prizes OR you’re a Tapper who didn’t update out of Christmas to help your neighbors earn the prizes then Add your Origin name to the comments below.  And ONLY those Tappers that haven’t update out of Christmas please. This post is designed to help those looking to collect the last bit of Gift Cards to get them, and if you’ve already updated your game today you’ll be of no use to them.  Once you have a newer version of TSTO your neighbors with the older version can’t visit you….so you won’t help them earn more gift cards.

Hopefully, this helps all Tappers earn the last little bit until you’re forced (and you will at one point be forced) to update your game.

Good Luck!

Origin Help for iOS Users

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ok so one BIG thing we’re noticing with today’s update greatly impacts those Tappers playing on an iOS Device, and that’s changes to Origin from inside TSTO.  Now Origin on iOS looks exactly like it does on Android.  What does that mean for you?  Let’s take a closer look…. Continue reading
