Where Did THAT Come From – Big Butt Skinner Balloon

Summertime… and the livings easy…

Hola Amigos!

So in a period of EA downtime, our game has brought us a bunch of returning items at discount prices. Pretty cool that people get the chance to get items a little cheaper but mega cool that there’s at least one new item in the midst of it all. Sunday’s Gil Deal included the Big Butt Skinner Balloon for 95 donuts. But what the heck does this item have to do with the Best, Show. Ever? Is it a parade balloon, Bart Simpson prank or heavenly omen? Let’s take a look at the show and find out.

Glitch/Bug Alert: Completed Tasks Stuck

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Seeing lots of comments from the last 24hrs or so about many of you having issues with completing your tasks.  You do the task assigned and it’s completed, but it won’t clear from your task bar preventing you from moving onto the next step.


If you’re experiencing this, you’re not alone.  Many, many, MANY fellow Tappers are reporting the same issue.

So, what can be done about it?  We’ve got a post written up with some tips and tricks to try first, you can find that post here:


Try those methods first.  If they still won’t clear for you the next step is to contact EA.

You can either do the call/chat option with them here (we always recommend call, if possible).

Or there’s a thread on the EA Forums.  It’s an older thread, but we recommended using it back in December when the issue happened, and it’s recently been “lit up” on the EA help forums.  So you can always put your issue there to hopefully get EA to fix it quicker!  That forum link is here:


This issue has happened before, and I’m sure it’ll happen again.  So just makes sure you report it to EA to let them know it’s wide spread…and it should be fixed soon!



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!

Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!
