Addicts Weekly Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Due to POPULAR request….we’ve moving up 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.  The 27th Season of The Simpsons starts tonight, are you excited for an all new season?  To go with the Season Premiere we received an episode tie-in this past week, were you excited for the new content?  It was a busy TSTO week that’s for sure, as we also received not 1 but 2 enhancements to the game…the Unemployment Building and the IRS building.  Two new ways to get in and out of your town just a little bit quicker.  What are your thoughts on the enhancements?
Sunday Night Baseball tonight features the Pirates at the Cubs, in what could be a deciding game for home field advantage during the Wild Card Game.  Sunday Night Football tonight features the Broncos at the Lions.  Which will you be watching?
How was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?  October starts this week, are you ready?

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!

Episode Reminder: Every Man’s Dream

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially Autumn here in the US and you know what that means?  Yes, the leaves start to change…but The Simpsons Are Back!  This Sunday marks the Season 27 Premiere!  Woohoo!

So here’s your official TSTO Addicts reminder…all new episode this Sunday, September 27th 2015, on FOX.  The season premiere is “Every Man’s Dream”, as I’m sure you’ve gathered from the recent episode tie-in.

So just what do the Simpsons have in store for us this week?

Here’s the episode information released from FOX:

Homer is diagnosed with narcolepsy — but instead of returning home with his prescription medication — he returns home drunk. He and Marge visit a marriage counselor and have a trial separation, during which Homer begins dating a 20-something”

Now before you start to panic about Homer and Marge….remember this video from earlier this year:

See they’re going to be just fine…although Homer’s eye might not be.

And here’s the sneak peek for this week’s episode from FOX:

Be sure to tune in tomorrow night to see all the fun!

As always after the episode airs we’ll have a full episode recap!

Are you excited for the new season?  Ready for the new episode?  What do you think will happen?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Tapped Out Premium Walkthroughs: Springfield Gorge & Daredevil Bart

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 56 arrived a short while ago and with it arrives a classic Simpsons item…Springfield Gorge!  Who doesn’t have fond memories of this classic episode?  As a bonus the Gorge comes with Daredevil Bart!

While we’ve had the Turbo Tappin’ walkthrough up since Level 56 hit, we thought now would be a fun time to take a look back at all of the fun dialogue you might have missed while tappin’…or just to relive all the fun again!

As we mentioned in the Level 56 rundown post Springfield Gorge and Daredevil Bart will cost you 250 donuts.  Once purchased and placed in your Springfield the questline will start up….provided you have Principal Skinner free.

So now….let’s get this walkthrough going, shall we?!

Tapped Out Level Walkthroughs: Level 57, Old Jewish Man in Old Gray Marriage

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 57 hit our Tapping Devices recently, and with it arrived a classic Simpsons character…Old Jewish Man!

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 57.  So for those that may have missed it (or for those of you that want to live it again)…I bring you the pants dropping excitement of Level 57…

Where Did THAT Come From – Homer’s Ballet

Note from Alissa: Here’s an Oldie WDTCF we’ve had sitting in drafts for a little while, but things like Tap Ball, 4th of July, the Monorail, multiple Level updates, etc kept preventing us from pushing it.  But now that we have a little downtime I thought it’d be a great time to post this one.  Besides who doesn’t want to go into the weekend listening to Homer’s Ballet song? 😉 

Hey hey friendereenos! In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where did THAT Come From?

Level 58/Every Man’s Dream and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 58 arrived in Springfield recently and with it arrived a couple of characters that are part of Fat Tony’s Mob, Johnny Tightlips and Frankie the Squealer, as well as some new buildings & decorations to help improve our Conform-O-Meters!

In addition we also received the Every Man’s Dream Episode tie-in recently.  With a couple of new items impacting our conform-o-meter (but no changes brought to it via that up, just Level 58).

The Conform-O-Meter is an important part of Tapped-Out because it provides you with a bonus boost in your cash and  XP from everything you collect in the game.  When you achieve a 5-Star Town (it’s max rating) you will receive a 5% bonus on all money and XP collected in your town.  If you missed the previous Conform-O-Meter posts check here for the basics and here for how many points you’ll need to reach 5 stars.

Of course with the release of Level 58 many of the requirements to maintain 5 Stars on your Conform-O-Meter have changed, so let’s check it out and see what the new requirements are.  So now you’ll have all the information you need to maintain that 5-Star Springfield!
