From the Mouths of Addicts: A Conversation with Archheretic1


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 is all about one of our Tappers of the Month for May Archheretic1!

Back on May 4th we announced the TSTO Communities of Topix, Addicts & game voted two winners Archheretic1 and Kays_xo as the Tappers of the Month during our monthly Shout Out!  As part of the Tapper of the Month we interviewed both Archheretic and Kays to get a better feel for why they created their Springfields the way they did and some advice they might have for other Tappers when it comes to design.  First up is our conversation with Arch…

So without further ado let’s see what he had to say!  Continue reading

Tapped Out Walkthrough: Level 40 & The Hoover-Beanie Romance

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well Level 40 has been in our Tapping Devices for about a week now and while we’ve had our Turbo Tappin’ (quick walkthrough) up since the update hit our games (check out the Level 40 Turbo Tappin’ Walkthrough here) we figured now would be a good time to show you all the full Level 40 dialogue as well.  So in case there was anything you missed when playing the level, or if you just want to know what to expect when you reach Level 40…here’s your chance to catch all of the humor!

So let’s get this walkthrough on the road shall we?

Hump Day Humor: Caption This!

Happy Hump Day Tappers!

We thought we’d bring a little fun to Wednesday with a little Hump Day Humor!  What better way to add fun and humor than a bonus Caption This!  

Everyday you guys (the AMAZING Readers of Addicts) send us tons of screenshots of some of the funniest moments in TSTO!  And every week when I go to pick a Caption This! image for Monday I struggle to only pick 1.  So we thought…”Why only do it once a week?”   And so…Hump Day Caption This! was born.

What is Caption This!?
Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments!

At least once a week (sometimes more!) we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

Hey Addicts… Caption This!
(Today’s Caption This image was submitted by Addicts reader newjacob…also his Origin ID…hint hint)

photo (3)If you’ve got an image you’d like to submit for a “Caption this!” post, email it to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com or post it on the Addicts Flickr page, you never know when yours might be next!

P.S Leave us your Origin ID with the email if you’d like for it to be included with the post. 

Easter Event 3 Weeks In….What Have YOU Won?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So we’re 3 weeks in from the start of the bunny invasion, with 1 more week to go…we’re in the home stretch!  Now that everyone is busy tapping and zapping I want to know…what have YOU won so far?  It was great having everyone share their results after week 1  and week 2 that we thought we’d check in with everyone and see how their doing after week 3!

Here’s where I currently am in my A town after 3 weeks of bunny catching:

Note: In my A town I’m playing as freemium as I can get with this event.  I have not purchased a single Egg.  The only purchase I’ve made at this point was for the MKII and that’s been more a test to see if I experience the same glitch a few of you are mentioning (where it gives you your dominant color instead of your non-dominant color).  Beyond that not 1 item has been purchased.  All baskets have been won and all Eggs have been tapped or zapped.  I am growing carrots and using Witch Marge…so I earn about 10-13 eggs/2 hrs with that (when I remember to go in and tap it!).  Also…I am NOT maxed out on friends.  I currently have 75 neighbors.

I’m Team Pink in my A game…
Pink Boxes: Fence, 100 gold eggs, fence, 100 gold eggs, fence, fence, tree, 100 gold eggs, umbrella and towel, 100 gold eggs, fence, 100 gold eggs, Chirpy and Bart Jr, umbrella and towel, 100 gold eggs, fence, 100 gold eggs, Blocko Store Completed this in week 1.  STOPPED PLAYING PINK BOX.  (converting all pink eggs to blue)

Blue Boxes: 300 Gold, pond, Fence, 300 Gold, egg pile, 300 gold, Pond, (end week 1) Fence, 300 Gold, Fence, 300 Gold, Pond, 300 Gold, Egg Council Guy (end week 2) Fence, 300 Gold, Egg Pile, 300 Gold, Pond, Fence, 300 Gold Eggs, Egg Pile, 300 Gold, Pond Fence, 300 Gold, Fence, 300 Gold, Pond, 300 Gold, 250 Pink, Fence, 300 Gold, Egg Pile, 300 Gold, Pond. Fence, 300 Gold, Egg Pile (end week 3)

Gold Boxes: Kodos Topiary, Hugs Bunny, Gate, (end week 1) Fence, Banana Dictatorship (end week 2) Pastel Fence, 250 Pink Eggs, Kang, Bunny 25601, Kodos, Blue Basket (end week 3)

For those not wanting to count…I won Chirpy and Bart Jr on attempt #13 and Blocko Store on attempt #18.  Ended up with 6 Fences (18 total towards Sucking Out quest), 700 Gold Eggs, 1 Easter Tree and 2 Umbrella and Towels.  So…I’ve now stopped attempting on pink since I’ve unlocked both items and am converting pink eggs to blue.

In the Blue Box I won the Egg Council Guy on my 14th attempt.  39 attempts and still no Johnny Fiestas though.

In the Gold Box I got lucky and won Hugs on my second attempt & Banana Dictatorship on my 5th!  And won Bunny 24601 on my 9th attempt.  11 Gold tries and still have Fr. Sean and Shary to get in Gold.

Overall haul includes:
2 Kodos
1 Kang
1 Easter tree
2 Towels and Umbrellas
5 Egg Piles
5 Ponds
1 Gate
14 Regular Fence Sets (42 total)
2 Sets Pastel Fence (4 total)
Egg Council Guy
Hugs Bunny
Chirpy and Bart Jr
Bunny 24601
Banana Dictatorship
Blocko Store

Still need:
Father Sean
Shary Bobbins
Johnny Fiestas
4 More Fences for Sucking Out Free Donuts

And I did win the Faberge Egg late over the weekend.   (for reference sake,  finished the main questline just shy of 2 weeks before winning the egg)

So now…what have YOU won?  Sound off in the comments below with the prizes you’ve unlocked 3 weeks in!
