Last Chance Fit Macaroni!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick reminder…the “Yellow Badge of Cowardge” Episode tie-in is sent to end tomorrow (5/20) at 3:59am EST (8:00 GMT).  So if you’re planning on, or on the fence about, purchasing Macaroni’s Shed..you have until 3:59AM EST (5/20/14) to make your decision and final purchase.  This is also your LAST CHANCE to unlock Fit Milhouse, if you haven’t already done so.  You don’t have to complete the questline you just have to start it & get to the part where you’ll unlock him.    Tonight is when it’s scheduled to end.  Does that mean they’ll leave at exactly 4AM?  Not necessarily…but do you really want to take that chance?

With YBOC ending tomorrow, does that mean we could see an update hit our games tomorrow?  We’ll have to wait and see just what EA has up their sleeves for us this week, but for now don’t miss out on picking up these items if you were thinking about it!

And…Yes, Cool Lisa will still be here after the update.  She’s a permanent addition to our games as a new Friendship Prize…so she’s not going anywhere!

Will YOU make the purchase?  What did you think of Sunday’s Episode?  Did you enjoy the episode tie-in?  Sound off in the comments below…you know we LOVE hearing from you!

PS…a special note for those who are currently locked out of their games….If you are currently locked out of your TSTO game….MAKE SURE you contact EA and let them know ASAP…like RIGHT NOW.  Go do it!  Right now!  Seriously what are you waiting for?!

The reason you need to contact them (with your Origin ID and let them know you’re locked out) is so that when access is restored to your game EA knows you were locked out, as a result of the issues right now, and they can give you Fit Milhouse if you missed out.  So Contact EA, WRITE DOWN and SAVE your Case #, and when access is restored contact EA again and let them know you were locked out during the post Easter updates and missed out on Fit Milhouse as part of the Yellow Badge of Cowardge update.  Give them your case number, and they should be able to award your account with Fit Milhouse.

So it’s SUPER important that you contact EA if you’re locked out of your game!

Where Did THAT Come From: Cool Lisa

Hey there Hoppereenos, figured I would bounce on in to give you a little more information about the new item that was just released for the Friend Points. The Cool Lisa skin. The question is, just where in the Simpson world did she come from?

Friendship Level 8: Unlocking Cool Lisa

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers,

How are my favorite Addicted Tappers doing today?   Racking up those FP’s by visiting your neighbors?  Just a reminder, remember to help out your fellow neighbors and clear those handshakes!  Are you in need of more Tapping Friends?  Remember you can always find friends on our Add Friends Page (and here for ones who pledge not to vandalize you)…the best (and only way) to submit your Add Me requests on TSTO Addicts!

So with the “Yellow Badge of Cowardge” Episode Tie-In EA also gave us the 8th Social Currency Event Prize…Cool Lisa!  A new skin for Lisa that many Tappets had been speculating on for a while now!  So now my friends let’s break down this 8th…and final for now (at least until EA decides to add more)… Friendship Prize.  Just want to remind you all with this update it’s important to remember to SLOW DOWN.  There’s no rush to get the FP’s, so take your time and enjoy it!  🙂

Anywho…Cool Lisa is unlocked once you’ve unlocked Capital City Goofball AND earned an additional 5,000FP…so many of you should be unlocking it sometime in the next few days (depending on how many friends you have).  So what happens when you unlock this skin?  Does it do anything?  Are there tasks for Cool Lisa?  What about a questline?  Well let’s answer all of your questions by taking a closer look at Cool Lisa now…

Hey Addicts, 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! Once a week 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!
(This week’s Caption This image was submitted by Addicts reader Kevin G)

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. Be sure to include your Origin ID when you send it in…or another nickname you’d like for us to use to give you credit 🙂

Episode Recap: Yellow Badge of Cowardge

Hey there Hoppereenos, it is time for the last episode of Season 25. I know these probably resemble more a complete story line than a recap, but there is good reason. For our readers on the other side of the pond or that can’t see the episodes, I am trying to create the scenes for them too so they can feel like they watched it with the rest of us.

So without further ado…

LEGO Contest Monday Submissions

Hello There LEGO Tappers!

Well over the last week here at Addicts we’ve had you searching the site for our LEGO words/phrase for your chance to win LEGO Minifigures!  Well now the hunt for the phrase that pays LEGOS is over it it’s time to submit your answers!

Remember the words for Today’s Entry can be found in last MONDAY’s POSTS.  Only submit the words from last Monday….more than one entry per day will not be accepted.  So make your first entry count 🙂

Here are the LEGOS you can win today:

LEGO Monday

Flanders, Krusty, Wiggum and blind packs….for a total of FIVE Winners from Today’s Thread!

So now let’s get to the entries…..(Entries for Monday MUST be submitted by 11:59PM EST on 5/19/14)

REMEMBER: Winners will be picked at random using Random.org. ONE Submission per person per day.  If multiple submissions sent only the first one will be accepted (they’re time stamped).

You can win up to a total of TWO times. Once your name is chosen the 2nd time, you will no longer be eligible. This is open to EVERYONE. Including past winners. So anyone can enter.

So how do the prizes work? The 5 Winners will each get ONE LEGO Minifigure. We will have a predetermined set of characters picked out. 3 opened and 2 blind bags. The first two Winners will  have the option to pick one open or one blind bag, the remaining will then get passed on to the next 2, and so on until all 5 characters are awarded. (Gotta make it a lil interesting.)

DO NOT Post the Words/Phrase in the comments below.  Any entries submitted via the comments will not be accepted, and will not be approved for moderation.  ALL entries MUST be submitted via the form above.
