Sunday Night Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite Addicted Tappers this evening?  Everyone enjoy their weekend?  Do anything fun in-between the Alien Invasions?

Anyway enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  No it’s not time to probe Homer.  Nope it’s time for another Sunday Night Open Thread!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So…here is your Sunday Night Open Thread.  The Simpsons are all new tonight…what will happen in the new episode?  Will Marge’s sandwich franchise sink or swim?  Halloween hit TSTO this past week..what do YOU think of the new stuff?  Are you enjoying the event?  MLB Playoffs are going on…with the Championship Series in full swing for both leagues.  Tonight the Giants play the Cardinals in St. Louis…how will that series end up?  The Royals are already 2 games up on the Orioles…how will that series go?  Sunday Night Football features the Giants vs. the Eagles (or My Team Husband’s…although I’m not a big football fan)…who will prevail?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Halloween, MLB, NFL or anything else you can think of!  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

  1. Hello:) ******It’s terrible. I would be so happy and you would be much appreciated !:) please let me know!

    • As all that you are asking for goes completely against EA guidlines and standards… we will not list, promote, contribute, or post anything at all in that regards. Nor will we allow readers to. We like our site and do not want it shut down.

      If you would like the correct way to earn donuts, we can help we some hints in the game like Jebediah or maxing out on FP and XP to earn them. Other than that…you are in the wrong place. 😉

      • The thread said we talk about ANYTHING simpsons related. It’s cool. Thanks for speaking for everyone. P.s. It’s a game. Have a nice day 🙂

        • But you are directly in violation of our site guidelines. Those are straight across the board on any post we create, regardless. The safety of our site is not worth the hassle or having it shut down. Not to mention lawsuits that they HAVE filed for those violating the standards. It may not be a big deal to you, but the other millions that frequent this site INCLUDING FOX, EA, and the others involved may feel differently. 🙂

  2. Just blew up a flying saucer in a neighbor’s Springfield and got 30 DONUTS!!

  3. Is the drive in movie theater worth the donuts? I have been eyeing it since the start of the Halloween update.

  4. I’m just going to go out on a limb and assume that in the next tier that the adults will become involved in giving out candy from homes, or something to yield probes/treats since otherwise if you want most of the things, you’ll be non-stop grinding or spending donuts. Just kind of throwing that out there especially to try to get the 14,900 proteins or enough treats to purchase the things.

  5. If possible would like to see a prize guide to get a better idea of what I’d like to get. Will soon have enough for the test subject but have a long ways to go for hugo, and grand pumpkin etc. Don’t know a lot abut what they are and would like to know more about them.

  6. Just got another app store update, but nothings changed in the game.

  7. Is there any benefit to updating the nail in board weapon?

    • It increases the radius of your tapping when you squish aliens. most I’ve squished is 5 at one go. Since the nails don’t do anything else, might as well upgrade the board. Mine is at Level 6 currently.

  8. TSTO facebook page mentions “Special Halloween items have been resurrected from the past! This assortment of meandering monsters is only available for a limited time in the build menu!” This was posted after the Count Burns and Candy posts. The limited time zombies were there from the start, so I’m a bit confused as to what this references or if this was just posted days after the zombies being available. I haven’t seen anything else show up other than Burns and candy. Has anyone else seen old items show up in their build menu?

  9. How come the two Probe Counters have different totals? Or is the total in the Friends Leader Board something different?
    Shout-out to spookiejenkins – Thank you for sending all of those Grem-Aliens my way!!
    Happy Haunting!! Gailyn aka gpikky

    • The leader board is different… details coming soon.

    • Hey Gailyn,
      The leader board gives points for how many grem aliens you send to neighbours, and also gives your points for squishing them in your town…it is not a probe tally. The only probe tally board is in the bottom left of your screen.
      I was going to save my eggs till they fixed this tally problem, but I still sent grems in today again…force of habit! Lol.
      Oh yes indeedie does our Spookie send in the grems!! If you read this, SPOOKIEJENKINS, please know I love getting those wee beggars coming to visit….but I simply cannot repay your generosity by sending that many back to you…wish I could tho! if you want to send them to someone else who can pay you back with that many, then I will be heartbroken, but I will understand. I just hope you are seeing the probes going toward your tally tho! Most of us aren’t!
      Take care guys,
      Cheers, Julie…nonnajay/loftyjnr.

      • Hi Julie!!
        Thanks for the information on the leader board. I don’t know how people get all of those grem-aliens though. I hardly get them, maybe 1 a day. Oh well, I’ll keep plugging along! Hope all is well with you!
        Happy Haunting! Gailyn aka gpikky

  10. I’m really liking the new leaderboard we got in this event, I like the fact that I can just press on a name and go to this friends town instead of scrolling past screen after screen to get to were I want. Also I like it so I can track whose actually playing the game and who isn’t so I don’t waste my grem eggs on friends who are not playing.
    I just wished that they would of included the quick kill button that they had in last years event so that when I’m in a hurry trying to get out the door in the morning to work, I could just press 1 button instead of having to find all the gremlins and miss some because I in a hurry.

  11. WanderingCaveman

    Hi there Addicts. So, this caveman is heading east in a couple of days. Going to be spending the next few months on the east coast. Sadly, I will have very little phone / internet access. I’m a little bummed that EA opted for the delayed release for the prizes, but there are not a lot of prizes in this event that really feel like must haves, so I guess it all works out… although I’m going to completely miss the Christmas event.
    Just want to say thanks to Alissa, Bunny, and Wookiee for all the hard work keeping the blog informative and entertaining… there were a couple of times *cough*Easter*cough* where the blog was more entertaining than the game. And it’s good to know there is a place I can find new neighbors when all my current neighbors drop me for not logging in for three months.

    • OOOOoohhhh that is awesome. I will be there too first of December. Hope you have some fun stuff planned. 😉

      What are we? Here for your amusement? 😛

  12. I just unlocked the mutant peacock (Success!!) When I went to my inventory,listed before my peacock was a Human Test Subject (Which I did not purchase nor did I craft it).Is this a (awesome) glitch or did I fat finger away a message about receiving a free one for some reason?Maybe got in a treat bag and not notice?

  13. Anyone else have a neighbor that keeps dropping the maximum number of Greml-aliens? It is rare that my other neighbors get a chance. Any suggestions?

  14. Will there be a calendar soon on how far along I should be in my probe gathering to get the prizes? I feel like I’m lagging behind 🙁 just got the peacock today

    • It’s coming very soon 🙂

    • Don’t mean to step on anyone’s toes, but, the arithmetic is pretty simple people. It takes 8050 probes to get the last listed prize.

      According to my game, there are 7 days left. But, depending on when you started, there were 12, 11, or 10 days to gather them (three columns).

      Days from end – # if 12, # if 11, # if 10
      00 – 8050, 8050, 8050
      01 – 7379, 7318, 7245
      02 – 6708, 6586, 6440
      03 – 6038, 5855, 5635
      04 – 5367, 5123, 4830
      05 – 4696, 4391, 4025
      06 – 4025, 3659, 3220 << By the end of Monday (USA), be here.
      07 – 3354, 2927, 2415
      08 – 2683, 2195, 1610
      09 – 2013, 1464, 0805
      10 – 1342, 0732, 0000
      11 – 0671, 0000, 0000
      12 – 0000, 0000, 0000

      Happy squishing guys and gals!

  15. Hey there!
    I am just wondering if anyone else had experienced a glitch? I am somehow stock in the trick or treating task and it has stopped at 5/10 complete. I have done 3 rotations of all the kids trick or treating and it hasn’t moved from 5….
