What happens in Springfield stays in Springfield. Or does it?
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?
So wowza has this been an event full of goodness to build our very own Cities of Simp-Sin. The lights are bright and the casinos are glamorous and a lot of the event details feel appropriately addictive like gambling but that’s okay. This is a site called TSTO Addicts so we should’ve been prepared for this, right? At least it’s not a wheel or box event. This post is going to go over seven items in this event for one big reason… they all hail from the same episode (literally within the same five minutes or so). Let’s take a look at one special episode to find the Dupes Sign (Crafting Level 3), Cowgirl Sign (Crafting Level 2), Lucky Casino (2nd Act Prize), Golddiggers Sign (premium), Newark Newark Sign (2nd Act Prize), Safari Casino (Craftin Level 3), and Nero’s Fountain.
“Viva Ned Flanders” (S10:E10)
After Ned realizes he’s sixty and really hasn’t lived a day in his life, he turns to Homer to have fun. Homer’s plan is to take him to Vegas.
I’ve been to Vegas a few times (one super fun time with the Lady Addicts) and love all the parodies the writers came up with. It probably should come as no surprise that a ton of our new items for the Casino Event would be from the episdoe where Homer and Ned go to Sin City. You probably will immediately notice the Cowgirl Sign, Dupes Sign, and Lucky Casino.
I really like the Peacock casino too and if you look, there’s a Stratoshpere-esque tower which might have inspired the Burns’ Players Club. The next shots in the epsiode (other than some jokes my daughter tells me are offensive no matter how I laugh) are pan shots of the Golddigger’s sign which came with Miss Springfield’s costume and the Newark Newark Sign. I had fun editing these into complete images.
I love the Newark Newark sign. I lived in New Jersey for a period of my life and this just tickles my funny bone with its neon rat. Doesn’t hurt either that one of my “Amazing” sisters from a different mister hails from the Garden State. What do you think a Cirque show about a Vegas buffet would look like? Maybe an acrobatic food fight?
After these shots, we see Ned and Homer drive past the Safari Casino. Only in Vegas would the animals on exhibition be put on the roller coaster.
Makes me think of the New York New York casino in Vegas. The Britannia also was probably inspired by that casino. This one is probably one of my faves of the event, mainly because the designers toook several seconds of show and made a fully realized building. Also nice to have another goal in an event. Anyhoo… the last casino, which includes the Nero Fountain, is where Ned and Homer finally decide to stay and then drunkenly marry two cocktail waitresses by mistake.
Not to point out spoilers, but based on this Level 3 crafting prize, I would not be surprised to see more goodness including Nero’s Palace in Act 3. Kind of pointless to have a fountain without the building. And that’s really it. Quick blips from the show that are now in our game via act prizes, crafting, and premium offerings. What do you think of all of them. Anything else you would’ve preferred? Been to Caesar’s Palace, New York New York, The Dunes Casino, or a Cirque show? Do you like the parodies? Sound off in the comments below. You know we love hearing from you.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
