Where Did THAT Come From – La Belle Frottage

Helloooooooooooo High Rollers!  How are the one-armed bandits treating you?

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?

Should I Spend Donuts on La Belle Frottage?

Special thanks to Kim (kimberlyah794) for helping out with this post.  Y’all may know Kim from the comments and from some guest posts during the Winter Event.  Thanks for the help, again, Kim! 

Greetings from the frozen wasteland of northern Indiana, fellow tappers! We’ve been snowed-in for a few days here, which has allowed me to really get into my game. Yay (?)!

This event has brought us some new and tempting ways to spend our precious sprinkles, including La Belle Frottage. Now I know you might be wondering if this is worth YOUR donuts, but don’t fret! 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 La Belle Frottage to your casino strip? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this questionably-named casino to your Springfield!

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 Simpsons tonight.  Instead the Oscars will be on (not on FOX though)…will you be checking them out?  Which movies this year were your favorites?

The Casino update dropped in Springfield this past week, what are your thoughts on the event?  Having fun so far?

Baseball is back!  And teams will be playing their first Spring Training games this week.  Anyone else as excited as I am?

So who checked out Fuller House this weekend?  Anyone else binge watch like it was 1995 all over again?

How was your weekend? Do anything fun and exciting?

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!

Simpsons-Oscar

Viva Springfield: Share Your Casino Inspired Design Ideas!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Viva Springfield…the Casino update has arrived!  With all new Vegas inspired buildings and decorations it can be pretty daunting trying to find the prefect place to put everything.  So I thought what better way to help design your Casino area of Springfield, then with input and shared ideas from each other!

So post screenshots of areas you’re working on.  Something you’re particularly proud of, something you need some input from others on or just something you’re completely lost on.  Have fun and share ideas with each other, that’s what makes the TSTO Addicts community so great!

Personally I’m working on my own Vegas Strip in the lower section of my Springfield, on the new land added with this update.  I’ve already added a Monorail “stop” to the strip..and hope to build it up more as I unlock more casinos and decorations…for now here’s what I’ve got:

Like I said it’s a work in progress.  I need more stuff.  But I’m slowly working on it.  I’ve got the general idea of what I want to do so far…

Oh and a heads up…we’ll be doing a Springfield Showoff of the Casino update in the coming weeks.  So start laying out those towns and getting them prepped for their glamour shots!  We’ll put up a post when we’re ready to start gathering your images for Showoff, so for now just keep designing.  (please don’t send them in now, they’ll just get lost in the shuffle)
