Tapped Out Level Walkthroughs: Level 56, Lance Murdock in Stunt Force Trauma

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 56 hit our Tapping Devices recently, and with it arrived everyone’s favorite daredevil Lance Murdock!

While we’ve had the Turbo Tappin’ walkthrough up since the update first hit (you can view it here) I know many of you still love going back and reading old walkthroughs.  They’re great if you missed any of the dialogue while playing the level, or if you just want to know what to expect when you reach Level 56.  So for those that may have missed it (or for those of you that want to live it again)…I bring you all the details of the daredevil excitement of Level 56…

Should I Spend Donuts On the Spruce Caboose?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Here were are  a few weeks in since the Monorail arrived in Springfield. Act 2 is now in full effect and with a few new Premium Items.  But what’s a TSTO Event these days without the return of items from TSTO past?!  Recently we saw the limited-time addition of the Spruce Caboose to our stores.   Now I know you may be trying to decide if this is worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it!  We’re here to tell you what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Spruce Caboose? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this restaurant choo-choo to your game!

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 nickysearch)

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!

It’s All About the Glass (Turbo Tappin’ One Track Mind & Glass Depot Info)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well I’m back from vacation…a nice relaxing week away where I can honestly say I didn’t touch my game once.  I guess even the “head addict” can spend some time away 😉  Of course spending a full week away from the game naturally only makes for chaos and confusion when EA throws a new questline at us early this morning.  This time around Homer’s a bit worn out (I guess he could use a vacation too…) from being the only Monorail Conductor and falls asleep behind the controls!  No worries though, Professor Frink has the answer…and it comes from Glass!  (because it’s all about that glass…)

This time around we’re introduced to another depot for our town’s…the Glass Depot!   Yes another place for you to turn your junk into “treasure” and add yet another element to the project board.

So let’s break everything down from the Glass Depot to the One Track Mind questline….

Addicts Weekly Open Thread

Hey there Hoppereenos!

Due to YOUR requests….we now have our open thread time so that our friends outside of the US can participate too!  Let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Now…enough rambling from me….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  Time for another 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 Open Thread. I’ll get some ideas started…

  • How is your Duct Tape earning coming along?
  • Do/Doing anything fun this weekend?
  • See something really cool in your neighbors town you want to share?
  • Have a cool “dessert” or “snack food” that is popular in just your culture or region you want others to know about? Maybe they’ve tried it.
  • Want to move to another Ward in the Addicts Asylum? Lol. 😉

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, 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!

Addicts 2 Year Blogiversary Q & A Part 2

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A couple of weeks ago we celebrated our 2 year Blogiversary!!  In continuing with what we did for our 1 year anniversary, as part of the celebration we gave you guys the opportunity to ask us anything you’d like with the promise that we’d answer your questions (or as many as we could).  And as always you guys came through in a big way!

Because our Blogiversary is kinda a big deal to Bunny, Wookiee and I, we wanted to do something extra special to answer the questions.  And it wasn’t easy, but we got all of our schedules together and created another Q & A video!  Giving y’all another peek inside the craziness that is the Addicts….especially when Bunny, Wookiee and I get together. And with so much crazy between the three us us we had to once again break it into two parts! (check out part 1 here) #warningitsevenlongerthanlastyear #warningthisonemayinvolvesomecrying

Well what do YOU think?  Now that you’ve seen nearly 2hrs of us…still want to stick around?  Any other questions you wished we’d answered?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

TSTO Anonymous: Springfield Stinks!

Holy moley!  What is that stench?  Smells like someone fudged their Huggies. Before I digress too far and start spontaneously singing a Lynyrd Skynyrd song, I should probably get myself on track.  So the monorail event is in full swing coupled with a lot of references to garbage episodes (the content, not quality) of the Best. Show. Ever.  One of the fun aspects of it all is dumping trash in your neighboring Springfields but it’s got me thinking.
