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…..

First of all, it’s Mother’s Day here in the US, Canada and a few other countries…so Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there!  Hope you have a great day full of brunch, mimosas and lots of peace and quiet! (or at least one of those 3! lol

No new Simpsons this week, but we did have an all new edition of Addicts Live.  Did you check it out?  We broke down the newest event, the two latest episodes of The Simpsons and had some fun talking about Mothers.

Out with the old, in with the new…as the Secret Agents Event came to a close last week and the Pin Pals Mini Event started up.  What are your thoughts on the new mini event?

How was the rest of 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!

  1. Just a note to let my neighbors know that I’ve decided to take a break until the next event hits…will be MIA for a while so no need to visit me (unless you just can’t stop yourself 😆).
    Need a time out…kinda losing interest in the game and hope this will “recharge” my enthusiasm. Seems like the events are getting so repetitive, predictable and waaaaayyyyyy too long 😫…don’t like feeling so negative about something I used to enjoy, so a break is in order.
    Hopefully, the next event will be more challenging?/interesting?/humorous?…we’ll see…🤔

    • Patience…and a break is a good idea from time to time…for sure!

    • Hi neighbor, best wishes for a nice break. I try to have some downtime between events. I can relate to having events tooo long.
      I always enjoy your posts in the blog and visiting your town. Even though we do no not know each other personally it seems like we are friends.
      For me this time in my life the game is a nice diversion. And with that said I plan to go outside more and plant my garden now that spring has come here.
      Hope to see you again in the blog.

      • Thanks Carie…I feel the same way, it’s nice to have you as a neighbor. I’m still reading the blog everyday, just taking a tapping break for a while. I will be lurking😳… No worries 😉🙂.

        • Thanks ebron & I am also taking a break from visiting towns. See you in the next event. Have peaceful break. 😀

  2. Game crashing a lot when visiting neighbours since the takedown. Never had this problem before. Had real problems with Sandra’s SF. It took 4 attempts!….💜X

    • Sorry to hear that. 🙁

      I’ll disable my monorail for a day or two….let me know if that fixes the problem for you!

      • Thanks Sandra. Will do…..💜X

      • Hi Sandra. Visiting your SF worked like a dream today! I left my mark on one of your buildings! I’d love to leave my monorail running but I have the same problem. My B game took nearly 3 mins to load it up the last time I tried….💜X

    • Also, I recently started getting my first item number warning (6,700?), so that may be part of the issue for you (although it hadn’t yet started causing problems for me (knock wood, kenahora).

    Does anyone know what’s going on over at Touk? It says it’s offline

  4. A glimpse of the new Futurama Worlds of Tomorrow mobile game:

    It looks like the game is based in New New York, with characters doing the typical tasks for cash and XP, but the Planet Express crew can chart a course off-world. And the app includes arcade-style games rendered in 16-bit graphics. Interesting.

    • I hate to be the bearer of bad news…but this game is Family Guy 2.0. You’ll have to collect stuff to unlock characters etc. That’s based on the beta testing.

      • I have little desire to play. Just the fact that it’s from Jam City’s TinyCo is enough to turn me off. But I did find the 16-bit arcade-style mini game interesting. Was the beta testing any fun? Or just a grind?

        • I unfortuantely wasn’t part of the beta, but from the videos/screen grabs/word of mouth that’s what I’ve been told. Very grindy…very Family Guy. What a let down…

          • Unfortunately for me, I have a deep affection for Futurama that is lacking for Family Guy. I’ll probably end up playing this.

  5. Any idea if there is going to be a deal from Gil soon? I’ve got some donuts burning a hole in my pocket, but I want to save them in case he sells something awesome.

  6. It is going to be different starting with over 5000 garbage this week.

  7. Everybody i found a glitch when you do the claw machine gane go out of tsto and come back in for double prizes

  8. Have an awesome week everyone 🙂

  9. Hi all,
    I seem to have a locked task with Lisa and Luke Stetson, to find hidden gold. Lisa is free but I can’t seem to find Luke in my town anymore and he’s not on my roster in City Hall.

    Weirdly, when I go to Krustyland I am able to access the task, but then it asks me if I want to go back to my Springfield, and once there the task is locked again.

    is anyone else’s femme fatalé 8 hr task locked despite a kwik E mart being in your town??

    • Carmen (gameid5000)

      If you only have one KEM in your town, you might want to add a second one to see if it will give the place she needs….

  11. OK, so I admit it, I am a freemium player to the core…. but I broke down yesterday… and I spent $9.99 real money in the iTunes store on the 132 donuts and Ned’s camper JUST so I could get Barney and the Bowlarama. You need the 250 donuts and I had some but not enough.. wow, that felt good.. like I was cheating or something. I once bought the 60 donuts and Shelby character for $4.99. I could see how this donut spending could become quite addictive! My father in law (who used to make FUN of us all playing TSTO UNTIL he got HIS iPad) just spent the $9.99 as well to get HIS 132 donuts too. Yeah it’s THAT bad. Had to share!! LOL!

  12. I watched a French Thriller, Disorder, over the weekend, hoping to be thrilled. While the acting is good and picture is well made, nothing really is happening. The action that takes place is minimal. Overall it was not a thrilling experience.

  13. Is anyone else having trouble following the oversized turkey, I manage to tap him once or twice then loose him on until I come across him the next day

    • Big claw is fast and can be difficult to keep up with at times. It will for the most part stay on roads but if you are a player with few roads I imagine it to be extra hard. really no way to search for, I usually just happen across it.

  14. Sad I couldn’t make my design for spies the in time for he showoff, but the beneft is at least i got the bowling alley done up quickly!

    • Oh wow, that’s really cool! I like how you used the brown road. It looks like the bowling alley floor. It’s also nice to see what the lanes look like next to each for those of us not buying extras. Thanks for sharing! 😄

    • You bought so many lanes! How come you have two similar bookstores there?

    • I like the wall in the background, it looks really great 😃 Took some time to realize how it’s made 😅 The Bowling Center fits in perfectly, too .. I’m a little envious 😅

    • Loving the design neighbour!

  15. Happy Mother’s Day Alissa! Happy Mother’s Day to all the other mothers out there! I had a great day myself. My daughter and I got some lillies for my mom to plant. Lillies are my favorite flower. They used to grow by my daycare when I was little and it was just my mom and me. I got her two pots, one orange (tiger) lillies which symbolizes confidence, pride and wealth (my fav) and one yellow which symbolizes thankfulness and enjoyment. I had a short visit with her and my Dad. Came home to my husband grilling steak and pork chops and cleaning the kitchen! Also got a great new Cubs jersey from my daughter and husband, I can’t wait to wear it!

  16. Happy Sunday to all and to the Mothers happy day, hope it was a good one.
    Look forward to having some down time after completing the mini event.
    Hope all have a peaceful and restful week.

    Any hints about a new Gil promo soon? It’s been about a year since i last saw him, i believe… hmm….

  18. Shhhhh, don’t tell anybody but I went for fourteen between taps today.

  19. Yankees getting blown out on Derek Jeter night! 🤣 ⚾️

  20. Just birthed my 1st Spuckler!!!!❤

  21. Been a while since I’ve posted been stupid busy at work. I need to find another job.

    As my wife’s birthday/Mother’s Day present I took her to Boston Ballet’s The Sleeping Beauty. It was interesting. She enjoyed it.

    Both kids are playing baseball this year. My daughter is doing tee ball and my son got moved up to Little League. He’s kind of frustrated because his team can not seem to pull off a win.

    Another reason I haven’t been around, I got a Switch at launch and the newest Zelda game. I have put in close to 200 hours. I can’t believe it.

    What are everyone’s thoughts on Jacques? He is a little more than I like to spend, but his tasks wok out well for me (I usually do 1 or 4 hours). Are his tasks humerous?

    • I play the Legend of Zelda game every chance I get. I’ve had very little social life in the last month because of it. But I’m nearing the end! What will I do with all my free time? At least Link will be happy living out his retirement in the little cottage I bought for him.

  22. Happy Mother’s Day to all mums.
    This is my first Mother’s Day in which my son gave me a present (he’s three) that he “made” himself at three year old kinder. In my card he said he loved me because I make him dinner.
    I started this mini event late cause my homer was doing a 1 day 8 hr task but I should get his pin pal skin today.

  23. Brandine and I are expecting the birth of our spuckler in 20 days! :’)

    • Carmen (gameid5000)

      21 and 1/4 days for my first Spuckler. Two to go after that… a whole brood just in time for Christmas!

  24. Anybody notice there’s no limit on how much recycling materials you can have at the Springfield Dump. Every 4hrs when I play the drone scan game from the secret agents event I get junk to help with crafting for monorail track pieces. Currently I have 6000/2000 of junk. Maybe EA will patch this in the next few days.

    • I don’t think it’s a glitch. You can overfill Springfield Heights material too using the movie theater (or turkey monster). I’m just amazed you’ve been playing the drone scan that much. Soooo boring!

    • Why would you want that patched? What is wrong with building up enough “garbage” that you wouldn’t have to worry about where Homer or Ray are hiding? Nothing wrong with unlimited garbage.

  25. I got Homer’s Pin Pal costume today, so just one prize to go. I’m not quite sure if I’m doing the claw game correctly. I just tap madly on it until time is up, and I always win two shoes…

  26. I wanna be be on the the ” mab the great hi list” ! Flyertrain… 😬
