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 (Most Dangerous Game) 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 Patric, 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. In that spirit we’d like to invite 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!
Well, before we start to carve into the Turkey (or Bunducken) we’d like to take just one more moment of your time. As I mentioned above, today’s a day to reflect on all you’re thankful for in life & in that spirit, if you can, as we do each year we’d like to invite you to donate to a charity that’s near and dear to our hearts, Friends of Buyijja. A fantastic charity founded by our own Patric to deliver “Unconditional Support for the Education and Welfare of Children…in an effort to deliver hope and opportunity.” Patric talked about it a bit in last week’s Addicts Live. You can find out more about Friends of Buyijja by clicking the link below, and if you can we’d like to encourage you to make a donation to an amazing charity that’s doing amazing work.
Happy Thanksgiving Tappers (whether you celebrate or not, we all celebrate through TSTO)!

Here’s what’s back in the stores …Limited Time, they’ll only be here until tomorrow (the 25th), so if you like it get it now before it’s gone!
Freemium items..(Don’t question, just buy them)
And now for the returning Premium Items…
Donut Price: 80 Donuts, 15 Donut Rebate, Net 65 Donuts
What Do They Do?: Premium skins for Lisa and Flanders
Previous Posts: So, when these were first released they were free as part of the Thanksgiving questlines. Sacagawea Lisa in 2013 and Puritan Flanders in 2014. So previous posts would just refer to their questlines as they pertained to the event and how you unlock them.
My Opinion on them Now: 65 donuts for two premium skins for regular characters isn’t a bad price, IF you don’t already have premium skins for them. Otherwise I’d pass on these two. I almost always forget I have them
Donut Price: 110 Donuts Combined, or 60 Donuts Each
What Do They Do?: King-Size Homer is now a Premium Skin for Homer, with some hilarious animated tasks. The Work From Home Station is a decoration that King-Sized Homer will use, however it does not offer a bonus % or earn a payout.
Previous Posts: Station Should I Buy; King size Homer
My Opinion On Them Now: King Size Homer was free last year, he was a Thanksgiving Prize, so it’s frustrating that he’s now premium. I do enjoy this skin and the Work from Home Station, but I think they’re a bit over priced in this combo for what it is/does. So unless you’ve really been wanting King Size Homer, I’d pass on this combo.
Donut Price: 80 Donuts
What Do They Do?: Fun Decorations for Springfield. Each earns a bonus %, Snowball II- .50% bonus on all cash and XP; The Grumple- 2% bonus on all cash and XP; Stampy- 2% bonus on all cash and XP; Bart- 2% bonus on all cash and XP. So in the end, 6.5% bonus for 80 Donuts. GREAT donut to bonus % ratio.
Previous Posts: Should I Buy Balloons; Bart Balloon
My Opinion On Them Now: I’ve always liked the balloons, they make great decorations at various places in Springfield..and they just remind me of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. This is a GREAT price for a 6.5% bonus return…I’d pick them up. And you can purchase multiples.
Donut Price: 150 Donuts, 50 Donuts Back, Net 100 donuts
What Does It Do: Premium building and Character Combo
Previous Posts: Should I Buy
My Opinion On Them Now: I’ve always liked this combo and my opinion remains unchanged. And with the rebate it’s one of those combos that becomes 100 donuts or less. That are a too good to pass up But with the recent Casino Event AND the Casino that you can get with Johnny Tightlips it does bump it down. So if you already have a bunch of casinos..pass.
Donut Price: 140 Donuts, 45 Donuts Back, Net 95 Donuts
What Does it Do: Typical Building/Character Combo
Previous Post: Should I Buy
My Opinion On It Now: I couldn’t imagine Springfield without Mrs. Bouvier. So I like this combo…and her tasks are pretty amusing. And that price, with the rebate, it becomes less than 100 donuts for a premium character/building combo. Grab it!
Donut Price: 60 Donuts
What Does It Do: Animated decoration, that Puritan Flanders (from image above) has a task at. Also earns a 2.5% bonus on all cash and XP.
Previous Post:Should I Buy
My Opinion On It Now: HILARIOUS if you have Puritan Flanders, and didn’t spend donuts for him. Otherwise, I’d pass.
Sorry guys I can only go by the files on this stuff because I own everything and this looks like one of those times something was in the files and EA changed their minds…
Donut Price: 35 Dounts, 15 Donuts back, Net 20 Donuts
What Does It Do: Animated sign for Springfield. Earns a 2% bonus on all cash and XP.
Previous Post: Should I Buy
My Opinion On It Now: Meh. Good buy at 20 donuts for 2% bonus, but it’s still just a sign. So you may want to pass…
And that’s what has made a comeback for this Thanksgiving! So hopefully those who are celebrating today, will find some time to tap in between bites of Turkey and all those tryptophan induced naps!
We hope you have a wonderful day, and a great start to the holiday season!
