Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, 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!

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.  No new episode of The Simpsons tonight, but the Thanksgiving Event is still finishing up in TSTO.  What are your thoughts on the Thanksgiving Event?  How about the Black Friday deals?  Pick up anything good that you’ve been wanting?  Anything you’re still waiting on?
How was your Thanksgiving? Do anything fun and exciting?  Or was it just another Thursday for you?
Sunday Night Football tonight features the Patriots at the Broncs.  Something you’ll be checking out?  Did your team play earlier today?  How’d they do?
How was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?  Get any Christmas shopping done?  (only 3 weeks left)

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!



Black Friday To Cyber Monday Sales ***SPOILERS***

Hey there Hoppereenos!

Many times we state we only put up Spoilers when we feel there is a specific need or good reasoning behind it. The main issue is EA can, has, and will change their minds on us and the information when it goes live may be different then initially “teased” to us. Well, I think this is one of those times that we can put some up. 🙂

That being said, I also know MANY of you just want to get an idea of what Buildings, Characters, and Decorations may be coming up on the remaining Black Friday to Cyber Monday Sales. I have compiled a list of those “teased” items, just beware these are indeed Spoilers and due to early release on the info… what you actually see in YOUR game may vary on item and timing. Always double check YOUR list that pops up in YOUR game for the most accurate information on how these sales will play out for YOU. 🙂

Episode Recap: Friend With Benefit

Hey there Gobblers!

Turkey Day has past and we still have a bunch of Gobble Gobblers running around in our silly lil games. Meanwhile, we had another New Simpsons Episode hit our TV Sets that I wanted to look back on.



Let’s dive on into the Episode that aired November 8th, 2015. Friend With Benefit! Continue reading

TSTO Black Friday 2015 Deals to Come

Update: In your games you can see what’s to come, when it unlocks and for how long.  That’s a good guide for what’s available over the next 2 days.  However, keep in mind MORE stuff will hit (That’s not currently showing) on Monday 11/30.  There will be something that’s new, for those players (like Ryan) that have everything…and then there will be some returning items (from events past).  (but Springfield Falls will NOT be returning for those holding out hope)
My best advice is if there’s something you’ve been wanting now is the time to get it.  Some of you may be holding out for the returning stuff…but don’t hold out too long.  You don’t want to miss your chance to get something you’ve been wanting.  We’ll post a list of what’s returning from Events past on another post, just so we don’t have spoilers here for those that don’t want them.
Thanks for your patience guys and thanks for helping each other in the comments.  This really is an awesome community 🙂  -Alissa

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Hope everyone had an enjoyable Turkey Day…or average Thursday.  Personally we had a crazy eventful day that ended up with a certain Tiny Addict way over stimulated and lots of day time sleep missing.  Hopefully that means she’ll get some good sleep tonight though! (you can check out photos of Miss. Riley dressed for Turkey Day here)

Anywho…it looks like EA will be doing some Black Friday Deals tomorrow (11/27)…and because we’ve got a lot going on here tomorrow I wanted to give you guys a place where you could discuss the deals with each other (I’ll do my best to approve comments ASAP on this thread).  Here’s some basic info from EA via their Facebook…

2015-11-27 03.55.35 2015-11-27 03.55.41

So similar to last year, it looks like these will be hourly deals.  With new items unlocking each hour.

Tomorrow (Friday) is a day filled with my husband and I decorating our house for Christmas and celebrating “Friendsgiving” with some close friends of ours.  So I will try to get on here at some point tomorrow morning and give you guys a list of what’s coming and when…but for now consider this post a place to share information about the items with each other.  Community involvement 🙂

Remember you can view Should I Buys for all existing items in the store here…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey Howdy Hey Turkey Tappers!

It’s finally Turkey Day here in the US!  And you know what that means…Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Apple and Pumpkin pie, football, stretchy pants and insane sales at the mall!  You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always check out the details of the Thanksgiving Event here) as we take the day to celebrate the holiday with our families.

However, we couldn’t let a day dedicated to being thankful go by without a special THANK YOU to YOU…our AMAZING readers!  We are so thankful for each and every one of you that take the time to read our posts and comment.  So from Wookiee, Bunny and myself…THANK YOU!!  You guys rock and we couldn’t do this without you!

Here at Addicts we’ve all been blessed in so many ways and we hope you have too.  (and I think many of you know what I’m most thankful for today…and yes she’s all dressed up in Turkey Day attire today)  In that spirit we’d like you to take a moment and let us know in the comments below what you’re thankful for this Thanksgiving.  We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Happy Thanksgiving Tappers (whether you celebrate or not, we all celebrate through TSTO)!

So let’s take a look at the full dialogue version of the Thanksgiving 2015 questline….
