Addicts Open Thread

Sorry this post is up late today guys…had a bit of a crazy morning around here.  But better late than never right? 🙂

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.  An all new episode of The Simpsons airs tonight, what do you think will happen in the new episode?  Halloween ended this past week and Thanksgiving started.  What are your thoughts on both
events?  Working hard at collecting those drumsticks?
Thanksgiving is this week here in the US.  How will you be celebrating?  If you already had your Thanksgiving how did you celebrate?
Sunday Night Football tonight features the Bengals at the Cardinals.  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?

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: Lisa with an “S”

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s almost Sunday and you know what that means…almost time for an all new episode of The Simpsons!

So here’s your official TSTO Addicts reminder…all new episode this Sunday, November 22nd, on FOX….“Lisa with an ‘S'”

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

Here’s the episode information released from FOX:

When Homer loses $5,000 at a poker game with Broadway legend Laney Fontaine, the only way he is able to settle the bet is if he loans Lisa to Laney for a month. Then, Laney turns Lisa into a show biz kid and Marge and Homer fear they made a mistake letting her go. So they head to New York to get her back.

Turbo Tappin’ Thanksgiving 2015: Gobble, Gobble, Toil & Trouble

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Thanksgiving Event hit our devices yesterday afternoon and a fun little event rolled out with it.  Like all events, a questline was rolled out with it to help guide you through the event.  If you ever get stuck with something in the event, just check out the questline and see what needs to be triggered next…usually you can get “unstuck” by following along with the questline.

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

Tapped Out Premium Walkthroughs: Johnny Tightlips

Still working through the Thanksgiving content as best I can…but it’ll take me a little bit to go through everything to properly do the SIB posts, TT and various other posts. (thanks for being patient!)  So for now enjoy this fun bit of dialogue brought to you by the Springfield Mob… -Alissa

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 58 has arrived a short while ago and with it the Springfield Mob got a little bit stronger (and a little bit richer)…as Johnny Tightlips makes his way into town.

While we’ve had the Turbo Tappin’ walkthrough up since Level 58 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 58 rundown post Johnny and Plato’s Casino can be yours for the premium price of 175 donuts.  Like all premiums it’s an instant build, and Johnny’s questline will start right up for you once placed in Springfield.

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

Thanksgiving Has Arrived in Springfield!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So this is one of those times when I said…bare with me if a post takes a little bit to get up when an update hits.  So, my apologies this is a little late getting up….but the Thanksgiving update has arrived!

A mini update that’s an automatic download…so nothing to download from the App Store.  Just start up TSTO and it’ll hit your game.

The update will autostart with some dialogue from Homer…where you’ll have to Tap a Turkey.

I’ll be back with more info in a bit…just as soon as I have a chance to go through it…more info below the fold 🙂

Level 59 and the Conform-O-Meter

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 59 arrived in Springfield recently and with it arrived a couple of new characters to add to the criminals and bullies of Springfield…Gina Vendetti and Molloy, as well as some new buildings & decorations to help improve our Conform-O-Meters!

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 59 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!
