Showoff Annoucement: Halloween 2016

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Springfield designs of Spooky (and not so spooky) Proportions!  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff featuring your Halloween inspired designs!  So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

Now that Halloween is officially over in Springfield , it’s time to showoff your towns.  So send us your Halloween inspired deigns and we’ll be putting up the Showoff post, featuring your designs, on SATURDAY November 26th…so you’ve got over a week to prep your towns.  Take your time and design as you see fit! 🙂


So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm EDT Friday November 25th. Can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.

You can send your designs in two ways…either post a link to the image in the comments on this post or you can email them to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  We won’t be pulling images from anywhere else, so please if you want to be featured either submit in the comments below or email your images to us.

Note: PLEASE try to limit your submissions to only 1-2 of your favorite screenshots.  We like to try and let everyone showoff their town but it becomes difficult when some of you are sending in 7-10 images.  Pick your favorite areas and send them in (or if you stitch photos together, that works too).  We’ll try our best to get EVERYONE in, but please understand that sometimes we miss a photo or two.  If we miss you one week, we’ll try really hard to make sure we get you in the next week.  You’re always welcome to showoff your town, at any time, on our Flickr page.  We know a lot of you have awesome towns that you want to show off, but please try to stick with this week’s theme.  Remember, this isn’t a contest.  There’s nothing to win.  It’s just a fun way to showoff your town and get some design inspiration from your fellow Addicts.  🙂   

Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff?  Post your images  in the Comments below or email us your screenshots at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.) 

Halloween Removal Is Live in the App Stores

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Popping in to let you know, if you didn’t already know, the Halloween Removal update is now live in your App Stores!

Download now if you’re looking to remove Halloween from your device…

For now there’s nothing new in game..but that doesn’t mean something won’t be coming soon.  As always there’s a little teaser to get us talking…


My guess is we’ll see Thanksgiving either tomorrow or Thursday, and in about 2 weeks or so we’ll see the Christmas Event.  But again, that’s just me guessing…

If you DO NOT wish to remove Halloween right now, still working on those prizes or another round of bonuts, just make sure your auto-update is off and keep playing.  Don’t download the update until you’re forced to.

But remember…my word of caution…you’re playing on borrowed time!  At any time EA can say “ok time to force the update”…which means you’ll lose any and all progress you were working on.  So proceed with caution….

In the meantime enjoy the brightness of Springfield…at least until the snow hits!

Thoughts on what’s coming next? Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!

Where Did THAT Come From- Gravedigger Billy

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?
