Addicts Open Thread

sorry this is up a little late today,  im travelling and forgot to schedule….

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…..

The Time Travelling Toaster flashed us back to Egypt this morning.  What are your thoughts on the Egyptian Era so far?   Prizes you like?  Prizes you’re not a fan of?

How did you fare with the Prehistoric Era?

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! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

  1. Was the hieroglyph wall removed from the store? I’m sure I saw it a couple days ago but I can’t find it today.

    • I noticed this today, too, which surprised me, because I don’t remember it having a timer/end date on it, so I figured it would be there for the remainder of the event (or, at very least, the remainder of this act!).

  2. Got my Pyramid this morning to my surprise. I had 10K to go last night and did two rounds of digging and a couple of panini presses and bam.. there it was.

  3. I got the pyramid with Willie’s costume today. Throughout the act I was a little skeptical, with it not being a full character. But after tapping on him the first time I’m completely in love with him. His quotes and tasks are both amusing to me. I guess never judge a book by its cover.

  4. So far, so good. Should be within a day or two of getting the Pyramid. Already have the temple and at 6 sec in 3 games, have the Mermaid Petting Zoo is 2 games,should get it in the other one soon.

  5. Some of my neighbours (Adamzki, Blazy, Ebron & others) have such fab prehistoric & egyptian areas it really encouraged me to set up my own now rather than wait until the event is over (my usual m.o). However, I can’t do my prehistoric one until the land becomes available where I’d like to set it up. I’ve seen some neighbours incorporating the tar pits. Such a cool idea, I will be shamelessly copying😂….💜X

  6. Hope at the end the excavation game stays. We could be offered 4 digs daily & get GENUINE GREAT REWARDS. So, SH currency that would allow us to go over the totals, straight monorail track pieces, small premium items offering XP/bonus, such as the apple & orange trees, planter, tree swing, police car etc. The booby prize could be XP min 1000 or cash min 5,000. Now that would be treasure worth digging for😊…..💜X

  7. So late last night I went into my town and I got pop ups for all the mini events saying that the event is over but I can still continue to collect stuff (I’m now getting coins, ribbons and NARA stars again), my money mountain and IRS building are at the lowest levels, tapping on people icons in the upper left doesn’t go to them, my Panini press is at 24 hours, and Gil showed up offering me Duff Gardens (which I didn’t buy before). Has this happened to anyone else? I’m assuming this isn’t part of the event like an error that Homer caused with his time travel since there wasn’t a post.
    Then I’m also wondering if I should buy the Duff Gardens even though it is offered in error. I’m sure a patch will come out fixing this glitch for me at some point, but could buying Duff Gardens possibly create a fatal error and I should leave it alone?

    • Buying and selling Kwik e marts with the XP collider on, there are many, many more informative posts you can find with a simple search.

    • KEM = Kwik-E-Mart. So a “KEM farm” is just a bunch of KEM’s, say 20-30 at a time, that are “farmed” for doughnuts through levelling up. You have to wait 4 hours and works best with the XP-Collider running at the time. Once you’ve built the KEM’s (after 4 hrs), you collect the XP they produce and hopefully level up a few times. Sell the KEM’s when you’re done and repeat every 4 hours. I’m at max level but still get 9-12 doughnuts every 4 hours. Realistically I earn 36-46 doughnuts per day.
      If you have a lot of in-game cash you can just buy Rat Trap Delivery Trucks or Blood Mobiles. The idea with KEM’s though is that your in-game cash stays approximately the same throughout the day.

    • Basically, buying and selling KEMs to earn XP to level up to earn donuts.

  11. The Mystery Box is officially rigged. I have a technique (that I won’t discuss) where I can unlock the mystery box but go back if I don’t like the item given. 3 times in a row I got Sneed’s Feed & Seed. I will take ANY other choices (Hootenanny, Carlmore, Wild West, Spider, Mine), but not that lame building. It shouldn’t be possible to get the same item 3 times in a row!

    • I would really like to know your technique, because there’s only one thing I want from the current mystery box…if I get any of the other three, I’ll be sorely disappointed (and the one thing I want isn’t worth the 240 donuts I could potentially spend if the thing I want doesn’t come up until last).

      • I use an Android emulator, so when the prize is revealed I quit the application before the game has a chance to save. It’s essentially like the application crashed at the right moment. When I load the game again the prize isn’t unlocked and I keep my doughnuts, so it’s like it never happened. It *might* be possible to hard-close the application on a normal IOS/Android device but I’ve noticed it doesn’t always work – so don’t blame me if it doesn’t work :P. I really don’t like Mystery Boxes – just let me buy the item that I want!

        • I agree about the mystery boxes, but I’m guessing that it’s EA’s way of getting people to part with more donuts, since they may keep trying to get what they want. I didn’t mind the first one they did (not the first one from this event…wasn’t anything I wanted I that one, so it was easy to skip it…I mean the first one event that was done like this outside of the “normal” mystery boxes), because there was several things I wanted, so the odds were decent I’d get something I wanted. But, when I only want one thing out of four (and I actively don’t want the others), it gives me great pause to give it a go, even though I have a fair number of donuts saved up right now.

          • SANDRA- I share your dilemma (B Game). Really tempted to try once but I know if I’m unlucky, I’ll be too tempted to try again. I also want to keep some Donuts for the pirate act goodies. There are two items I def want. Oh what to do…🤔💜X

        • I have not gotten any thing from the mystery boxes during this event because there is more that I do not and do not want to risk spending donuts for basically nothing.
          Agree I would just like to be able to spend donuts on what I want.

  12. Just got Abu Simbel last night and it reminded me – it’s the most amazing place ever. To stop them being lost underwater when the Aswan Dam was built, they carved the monuments right out of the mountain and put them on the top of the hill, then built a fake mountain over the top. When you visit you walk into a door in the back of the fake mountain and through what is like a set from James Bond then pop out other side right next to the monuments. Amazing! And twice a year the sun shines down the tunnel and lights up the faces of the four statues in the end chamber! If you get the chance to visits – do it! 🙂

    • We studied the whole process in one of my middle school classes. They used state of the art saws that cut only a mm slice thin, how they had to organize, label and move these multi ton blocks and reassemble them perfectly on higher ground is truly modern marvel of engineering. I would love to visit it one day.

  13. Good thing about the current event imo being lackluster regarding premium content is, I can spend my farmium donuts on the characters from vault without having to choose. So far Laura Powers, Rich Texan and, since today, Stacy Lovell have joined my town, all characters I wanted for a long time.
