Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just dropping in with a quick PSA on a NEW feature with the Stonecutters update…the Nuclear Option!

That’s right Tappers…EA has FINALLY given those who want to completely redesign their Springfield the button they’ve all been most coveting….a STORE ALL button!

But we want to warn you…be careful!  If you Tap on this and go through with it…YOUR ENTIRE SPRINGFIELD WILL BE STORED.  Great tool if you want to rebuild your Springfield…bad tool if you’re aimlessly tapping.

Here’s how you access the Nuclear Option: Continue reading

Who’s Got An Update Coming Soon…We Dooo!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well…it looks like SOMETHING BIG is coming!  An update just hit the files BUT it has not yet hit our tapping devices.  However, this is going to be HUGE.

Wookiee’s post about EA’s spoiler yesterday is coming true…and the Stonecutters are on their way!

It looks like it’ll be an app store update so if it follows suit of previous updates, something will be hitting the app stores between 11:30-1:30pm EST, so be sure to check  your app stores for the update.

We’ll be back with more once the update hits!

Happy Tapping Friends!

P.S. We know all about the spoiler sites.  We’re in the files ourselves right now pulling loads of images and data for when the update hits.  However, our policy is, and has always been, we don’t post spoilers unless EA posts them first (like the image on Facebook last night).  Otherwise, we wait until the update actually hits and as soon as it hits we roll out TONS of info, but only after we’ve confirmed it to be actually in the game itself.  It’s just the way we do things around here.  We promise as SOON as the update hits, you guys will have ALL of the info as fast as humanly possible, if not faster.  🙂


Build Your Own Minifigs

Well hello tapperinos.  Our week of Simpsons minifig contests is over and a bunch of tappers got some cool Simpsons minfigs to enjoy.  Here at Addicts, we wish there was a way to give out even more than we did but money doesn’t grow on trees… not even in Springfield.

Bummer and bummer but I did find something pretty snazzy where you COULD make your own minifigs if you were so inclined.  I found this article online and laughed as I watched Chicago animator David Pickett create our favorite family from various blocks.  Click the link below the image to get to the article and video.  It’s over 30 minutes long but I was riveted.

Homemade Lego Minifigs



I have no clue what the cost of all these pieces would be if you had to buy them   (a complete set of the pre-made Simpsons family would be $19.95 US) but tell your Mom, tell your Dad, this is Super Rad.  Really makes me want to visit the Lego store to get Ralph and a bunch of random pieces for the project.  Seems like it truly would be a fun project.  One things for certain, this guy is a GENIUS.

Well, if any of you Addicts do build even one of these, please share with the group.  Until next time, I remain the resident fuzzball.  You stay you, classy as usual.

TTFN… Wookiee out!
