From the Mouths of Addicts: A Peek Into the Addicts Mailbag


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 form a few different tappers.  Everyday we receive TONS of emails from you guys with fun shots of your town, random thoughts about the Simpsons & of course…we’d be lying if we said it wasn’t…our favorite admiration for TSTO Addicts!  So we thought this week we’d share a few of the emails we’ve received recently.  So sit back, relax & enjoy the trip through the mailbag 🙂 

First up a great email and AWESOME artwork from our friend and Addicts Reader WanderingCaveman.  You may have seen him wondering in the comments, and we love chatting with him too, but we were completely blown away his email and what followed!
Hello Addicts,
I just wanted to share a quick sketch inspired by Bunny’s “Lil Bunny Foo Foo” post. I was actually planning on doing a sketch of the entire Addicts team because the blog has provided so much entertainment, Bunny just happen to be the first one I sketched.
Hope you guys enjoy it,


Well WanderingCaveman..we LOVE IT!!!!  Of course you know how this means you have to come through and sketch Wookiee and me right?  😉

Next up an email from AG.  AG was bored one day and decided to have a little fun with TSTO.  The email will explain all….

Subject: Bored and somewhat curious about jamming Simpsons into a square
The subject line says it all.   I have a habit of abusing my virtual fish, barnyard animals, Sims characters et al  by squeezing as many of them as I can into a small space, not feeding them, and then deleting the game so that they are all trapped in cyberspace.  Here are the Simpsons so far.  


Thanks for the email AG!  Of course I see the image and can’t help but think..”Gee I hope they all showered!” 🙂

Next up is an email from joelloyddi395 all about why he loves TSTO!

Hey TSTO addicts
I love tapped out because you can go on a town of springfield and create it how you like.  With loads of updates e.g Christmas it has non stop entertainment and content for you to play with every day.  You also get levels and bone tickling quests that keep you coming back.  If I could sum it up in three words they would be: Addictive, (laugh out loud) funny and creative.  The thing that makes me play it so much is the inspiration I get from friends which I incorporate in my town and make my town to the best of my ability.
Thanks for your time

Thanks for the email Joelloyddi395!  We love TSTO too!  (in case you couldn’t tell)

And our final email comes from reader Adam F and his thoughts on the screen your neighbors see when they visit your Springfield….

“I have shown you mine so you show me yours” (town centre that is)
I was thinking, (it is rare) this little piece of TSTO real estate is a very important part of the town… Its where you and your “friends” start the game.
So for me, it has to look good! Attached is a picture of mine.


Wow Adam!  What an awesome maze!  One I’d hate to get lost in!!

Update: Ok I’m back with one more…because I think it’s AWESOME!  Tapper Aaron mentioned how cool it would be to have Wookiee and Bunny as playable characters in TSTO…of course leaving me out (it’s ok Aaron I forgive you! 😉 )  However, LaserDragon took it a step further and didn’t forget about me!  I just received this email from LaserDragon:
Hey Alissa. I had some Time to spare and had this Idea of a Picture. I love the Addicts and you can call this a 
Hom(er)mage Smile I hope you enjoy this 
greets LaserDragon


Thanks for thinking of me LaserDragon!  I love it….and like I always say Flattery will get you EVERYWHERE with me 🙂

Well that’s it for this week’s edition of From the Mouths of Addicts.  What did YOU think of the emails from readers?  What do you think of Wandering Caveman’s Bunny image?  Or AG’s cramming the Simpsons into one square?  Or Adam’s maze?  What are YOUR favorite things about TSTO?  Why do you tap?  Sound off in the comments below.  You know we LOVE hearing from you! 🙂

And keep sending us those emails!  You never know when you might end up on the next From the Mouths of Addicts!

Once a week (at least) we plan on showcasing your words (art or video) for the world, and TSTO Community, to read!  Here’s your chance to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out.  Simply send in your posts to our Addicts email account: (many of you already do) and we’ll do the rest!  We’ll pick (at least) one post to be showcased here on Addicts every week.  So send us your posts…we can’t wait to see what you have to say!

  1. WanderingCaveman

    Thanks Alissa. I may have gotten a little carried away… it’s blown up from a sketch to a full on illustration, so it may take a wee bit of time to finish.

  2. How do you guys make a playable character out of yourselves?

  3. You Wascally Wabbit! I was dreaming of how to make train tracks!! LOL

  4. It is most definitely a QR code. Now who wants to figure out what it says?

  5. Holy cow…people still e-mail??? Cool bunny, cool maze, but I like to give my pixel-based lifeforms a little space…

  6. Adam’s maze looks like one of those qr codes… Curious. It looks awesome!
