Weekend Update: December 21st – December 27th

Wow, wow, and wowza… Christmas Week is over!

Part II of the TSTO Holiday Event is in full swing…

Chewbacca presents are strewn all over the floor…

Anyone know how to get Cheetos dust out of fur?

Oi to the world and all my favorite tappers and addicts!  How the heck was your holidays? Get anything good from Santa?  Enjoying your game?  Since another week has come and gone in our lives… it’s time again for another Weekend Update to “wrap” up all the posts you may have missed or simply want to see recapped.  Our resident Lady Addicts are busy compiling all that lovely info you’ve come to expect so it falls to the fuzzball to let you know the latest from the past week.  Without further ado… let’s get to it…

weekend update wookiee

After last week’s update… Alissa popped in in the evening to remind everyone to enter their submissions for the Addicts Holiday Contest.  It’s closed and winner’s were announced.  Check below for all that goodness.

Now for this week’s fun…

SUNDAY: Bunny kicked off the morning letting y’all know about the Missing Zutroy Glitch cuz she’s good like that.  Hopefully this is resolved for everyone.

Zutroy Hide from Federales

Wookiee then roared on in with a new edition of the Real Housewives of Springfield.  This one focused on that lovely country home-wrecker named Lurleen Lumpkin.

A Sunday wouldn’t be a Sunday without another Open Thread for all your random discussions, etc.  Alissa kept the tradition going of course.  We love these and hope you do too!


MONDAY: Alissa started the day with a 2014 Christmas Walkthrough for King Winter.

Next came another Where Did THAT Come From for the Nativity by The Wookiee.

Alissa kept at it with another Christmas 2014 Walkthrough for Zutroy and brought you all the details for the 12/22 In Game Update: Apu, Frankincense & Donuts.

The night concluded with our Top 10 Finalists for the Addicts Show Us Your Lights Contest.  It was so tough to pick only 10 but somehow we managed.


TUESDAY: Wookiee gaved more Where Did THAT Come From info for Zutroy.

Alissa then did her awesome informative gig like usual with info about the 12/23 Christmas Quests. As if that wasn’t enough, she aloo let you know just how Level 48 changed the Conform-o-meter.

WEDNESDAY (Christmas Eve):  To kick off the day, it was time to show off who YOU picked as the Winners of the Addicts Holiday Contest.  3 lucky tappers hopefully got lots of sprinklies with their winnings.  Congratulations!

Of course, the day also brought us Phase II of the Christmas Event…. Alissa made sure you had a new page to add friends for the second part of the madness. She also had all that rad info about Christmas Phase Two and the limited time Gil Donut Deal.


As we all tucked in to get ready for Santa and the big day… Bunny of course was cray cray as usual and decided the Eve wouldn’t be complete if she didn’t share a Christmas Poem, Grumple-style.  Did you check out The Night Before Grumple-Mas?

THURSDAY (Christmas): Happy Yule-Thor!  Alissa popped in with a quick post to wish y’all a Very Merry Christmas!  Of course, all heck broke loose in TSTO and all three of us were with family in a much needed day off from the site. Hopefully every addict who frequents here had a great day and got lots of real presents.  Thankfully it seems the havoc wasn’t too bad although we’re still sorting it out lol.

Merry Christmas from the Addicts

FRIDAY: As days off go, they end quickly and Bunny was right here in the AM with another Where Did THAT Come From for the Cabin Fever and Snowmen.

We realize our absence didn’t keep our readers from having tons of questions about Phase Two (especially considering the wretched Holiday lock-out), so Alissa made sure to answer a ton  in her Addicts Question Corner: Phase 2 of Christmas.  If you’re wondering about details from the second part of the event, I promise most of your questions are answered right there.


Alissa then brought you Turbo Tapping for the Phase 2 Questline and reminded you about Last Chance for Gil, Santa Flanders & Costingtons.

SATURDAY:  We know you’ve been anxiously awaiting another one of Bunny’s calendars so to start today off, Bunny swung by with her latest creation to help keep you on track with your bell-earning.

And that’s what happened this week.  Seems like enough to me.  Do we have anything else in store for y’all today??  Well, you’ll have to stick around to find out!

Add friends image

FYI, if you want to make a friend request, make sure you put it in the proper location…

If you want any kind of friend out there, go to the MAKE NEW FRIENDS PAGE.

If you prefer to not have your buildings spray painted, go to the ADD FRIENDS NO VANDALISM PAGE.

Please do NOT put your requests for friends anywhere else but one of those two pages. If you do, they WILL be deleted. Sorry, but it is better than having posts with important info clogged up with them. It takes away from the post and the help needed on them. 

If you just need a question answered and can’t find it using our cool SEARCHtool, make sure you ask it on our Q&A Section.

For those just looking for a place to carry on a conversation, feel free to chat it up with your fellow Addicts all you want on our Open Threads. (It helps keep actual post open for discussion on the content they are providing.) There is a new one every Sunday Night.

And that about does it for this week here at TSTO Addicts. What did YOU think of this weeks posts? Any favorites? Any that helped you out the most? Something specific you would like to see written about or added to? Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

  1. I love the new buildings and things but they really need to upgrade the land available. I’ve got my town the way I like it, but I’m going to have to start taking things that I’ve work hard to build/design out to fit things. And I’m not talking about trees. Maybe go light on the next event to a alow the game designers time to add extra space.

  2. Hmmmm…haven’t seen this mentioned yet and it’s probably obvious BUT is the Christmas House of Gold the same as the regular House of Gold? It seems awfully cheap at 10 donuts compared to what I remember paying for the first one. (Admittedly, my memory is insanely faulty.) Thanks for you and all you do!!

  3. allusernamesgone

    I cant seem to make my elf Bottler work 🙁

  4. Hello, just received the elf bottler but can’t seem to get it to work. Instructions say to press and hold the screen and all nearby elves will be bottled. I tried holding the screen on the top right hand corner where the icon is and also in random areas close to elves with no luck. Any advice? Thanks…

  5. Is there anything going on with sideshow you in the game

  6. How do you unlock the elves ride thing for krustyland? It only shows up in the menu in springfield and can’t see it listed in krustyland.

  7. Does anyone know when EA will release more land?? I’m almost out of room, and really don’t want to put things into inventory..

  8. I’m not sure where to post this, I seem to remember a recent post on this site mentioning something about a small 10 or 15 doughnut bonus if you bought a premium character or building (posit ly even a special event character or building) and also had Krustylu Studios? I searched for this post but could not find it. Am I remembering incorrectly ? Thanks for the site yall rock! #BunnyHill

    • I think you remember the Alien in the Drive In and the Krustylu Studios. Though that has passed. I do not know if the quest is even still in the files, let alone completable. You can try at your own risk. Is that the one?

  9. I’m confused. I’ve placed the control building and Fink said to frisk the elves for cogs when you catch them. I’ve cought some but, no cogs. Am I supposed to be doing something more or do you just randomly get cogs when you catch them & I simply haven’t yet?

  10. I emailed yall, just checking to see if I got the right email address? For the stain try simply green. Also my post are in the guidelines as I wouldn’t be negative anyway but I always wanted to know some of my post don’t come up, any reason why? Also, I’m finally in the 5 star club… Yay yay yay go me!!! Lol… I do have a question though I read somewhere in the addicts bible that you are suppose to get an additional bonus or was I reading something else? Thanks so much

  11. Hi, I have already bought the ice palace and it’s fab. Thing is, I’m now thinking that it will melt like the snowmen Simpson characters do and I have completely wasted doughnuts. Is that correct? Thank you and happy new year in advance. Debby

    • As the event is still in full swing clear til January…we have no idea what it will do til after the event ends. So…will have to wait and see. I hope it doesn’t melt. or a donut purchased item, I don’t think it will.

      • Well the snowmen were donut purchases & they melt but I hope the ice palace endures. King Winters cave looks nice next to it

  12. Shake and VAC……..works every time.

  13. What thread do we write about how much we appreciate all of the time and effort you three put into this endeavor? Without your help, I for one would not get as much out of this game as I do. From the “little” taps of the trade to the history lessons that tie into the TV series, there is so much to be gained reading your pages. Thank you so much.

  14. Just encountered an annoying glitch.

    Logged in to fire my cannon. When I tapped on the fuse icon it turned into a handshake. I tapped that and got the 5 bells for the handshake, but the cooldown started over without letting me fire the cannon.

  15. I’m curious……I’ve gotten a couple doughnuts from tapping on the elf launcher…then I notice that my doughnut count goes back to my original count…heard anything ??

  16. Will you guys do a should I buy Ski Lift and Ice Palace?
