Addicts Question Corner Winter 2016: Act 1 (Gnome Issues, Singing Stones, Clues for What’s Next, WTF is Going On Around Here?!…and more!)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers! (Or as Jim Nantz would say…Hello Friends)

Ah do you hear that?  That’s the sound of Tappers everywhere taking a breath and my heart rate very slowly coming back down to normal levels.  Ah….

Or Not…

So, EA has certainly “done it this time,” in creating a “Winter Update” that has been without question, one of the most divisive of all time (and that is saying a lot!).  Part I of our experiment has been enlightening, to say the least. Our little one-sided poll has produced results that are predictably slanted, while offering some insight into the feelings of the community.

The results speak for themselves…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The snow is falling in Springfield, which can only mean Winter has arrived in our pocket-sized towns!  And is in full swing on our devices.

The First Act 1 Prize awarded at 4,850 ico_cur_xmas2016_antlers_lg is the Goat God Statue, because Ralphie needs one more thing to lick…
