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…..

Last week for the Time Travelling Toaster Egyptian Era? (ends Friday) What are your thoughts on the Egyptian Era so far?   Where are you in the prize track?  Thoughts on the premiums released so far?

Yesterday we had a new episode of Addicts Live, have you checked it out yet?

How was the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?  Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there!  (especially our very own Patric and Wookiee!  Hope you boys have a good day with your kids (and Grand kids for Patric)!

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. I love the Elisabeth Esselink musical theme for the Egypt week. At least, I assume it is her but if it isn’t then I do hope she is being paid for inspiring it.

  2. First, let me say that I have not done a great job trying to find this answer on my own. That being said, can anybody tell me what this new box is that showed up while I was in Krustyland. It said it was storing characters in a box for me. When I tap on the box nothing happens other than it expans and when I tap on that it contracts.

  3. So I got the final Time Traveling Toaster prize today (Egyptian Pyramid). Got the final Excavation prize Sunday (Abu Simbel Temple). Did this without any premium characters collecting shovels or any premium buildings/decorations collecting event currency. I expect to get in 1 round of bonuts like last time. Oh and I’m already crafting pirate stuff ☺

    • I don’t understand why there seems to be such a discrepancy to success in this event…
      I am falling further behind in getting currency every day and haven’t changed my playing habits
      Was a few thousand papyri ahead, then yesterday was about a thousand behind, and am now, will be up to 3 thousand behind, approximately, when i hit the sack.
      Got ACT 1 completed with a day to spare.
      An I’m also already crafting pirate stuff, LOL.

      • Mate u need to do a few things to finish. Visit ur friends, login every 4 hrs, have a good digging strategy and dismiss the daily challenge if it isn’t giving u pipyrus. If u don’t u have buckleys finishing. I would send ya some if i could. Also taskmaster willie is only a skin not a character and i don’t particularly like the pyramid. It is an ugly design. I think a 5 yr old could have designed a better pyramid.

  4. So im back. Been a while since ive cared enough about TSTO to even look at the blogs. Im just curious if EA will ever release new characters again or keep up with boring events and lame, one time use skins….WE WANT SARAH WIGGUM (and troy mcclure, gil, etc, etc.)
    EA is losing me, and losing me hard with this complacency.

    • i was anticipating vault day as well. i having been stock pilling my donuts for the vaults and mystery boxes. the mystery boxes haven’t had anything i really wanted to own yet and have bought a couple of vault things. i really want Dr Nick and the Sushi chef. they have both been removed from the store so i was hoping they would pop up. not yet drats.
      Dr Nick is my fav character. It’s sad they don’t use him for $129.95 anymore. i love his lines. ‘i always clean up with a napkin’ and ‘i get there faster if i use the car pool lane.
      so hopefully next vault.
      PLEASE EA

        You do NOT need Homer, rather, you need the Calendar – for the outside 8 and 12 hour tasks – which will cost ANOTHER 70 donuts.

    Good day again all 😊😊 On the personal side in life, I started PT on Friday from my back surgery & am a bit underwhelmed. I know I shouldn’t be, after having PT so many times over the past 20 yrs (have no idea how many, but can count at least 9 different facilities off the top of my head), I know the exercises & can do them in my sleep. I was excited to be evaluated & given the go-ahead on certain activities. Ok… so yes, I need to be guided & slowly increase the frequency. I hope they’ve come up with something to at least make me feel like it’s worth the time & $, because otherwise, I honestly am not going to keep doing this past next week. I am waiting for an itsy-bitsy part of my incision to heal to get in the pool with the grandkids. It sucked not being able to get in the pool at my dad’s house yesterday. We had an awesome day, & I got to see a pic of my brand new great niece, one of my favorite nephew’s (I only have 2😂), Father’s Day gifts! They live in Vegas, but all the rest of my family up there (including their mother, my sister), are bat $hî+ crazy & like a toxic chemical to me), so seeing them from a distance is about as good as it gets 😐 BUT…everyone else had fun swimming yesterday, which was great. I lasted about a half hr watching from under the gazebo in the shade. I believe it was about 116 degrees by then 😕. I still had a very happy day with 11 other family members I love, that don’t turn everything into a soap opera about them. I even got to see my 2 nephews who are 4 & 6 (he & his wife are 16 yrs younger than I). They still have entanglements with the crazies in my family, but still have enough respect to show up & act decent on Father’s Day. There’s hope for the future yet. Anyways… I’m worn out but doing well, and have been reminded again how important it is to be around people who lift you up & make you happy, instead of trying to drag you down into the loony pit with them 🤗😁😁😁

  9. Absolutely loving this event so far. It feels a good length providing just enough challenge to get rewards whilst not getting boring like the spy one.

    Good morning everyone 😁 TSTO wise: I’m really quite a bit bummed, & hope my suspicions aren’t right, & im getting burned I was offered Marge’s Mayan skin, found out most of the tasks were locked, needing quests completed (but no notification or task is sitting there waiting to be done like the others), THEN I was excited the only task that was visual & just said required the Mayan Calendar… it was also offered, but I didn’t really want to spend donuts on it right now, since my pile is dwindling. I went ahead & bought it, thinking I’d get to send Marge on a visual in her new cute outfit… nooooo, now it says quest required, & again no prompt for what that task is. Now I need to do a search & find what the quest is… like WTH EA????

    • You need Mayan Homer skin which EA have not offered up. I got burned on buying Mayan Marge and the Calendar and Marge has only a 1, 8 and 24 hour task with the skin if you don’t have Mayan Homer 😦

        I am big on visual tasks, so this was an extremely disappointing, even misleading, move by EA. We should get Mayan Homer for free to enable us to finish her questline. I say free, because I feel we were duped into the purchase (ESPECIALLY the calendar!!!) Epic fail EA 😡 !!!!)

    I have a series of quests lined up for completion. Two of them are in a box that expands to show each task, or shrinks and “compiles” the individual tasks.
    What is the determining factor as to what is listed individually and what goes in the box?
    Inquiring mind wants to know.

  12. I find it annoying that EA have coded certain buildings that I want to move to the boardwalk or pier can’t go on there because I wanted to move Gold Navy and the Blocko Store on the pier with the Banana Dictatorship, Vulgari and Spiffany’s which I have as the SH promenade. I hope EA could read this and enable some of the buildings and decorations that were released a while ago so that they can go on boardwalk and pier because a lot of the new buildings and decorations like Moe’s cavern can go on the boardwalk and pier.

    • What they need to do is allow for more event decorations to be placed in krustyland! my inventory is cluttered and i would like to empty some of it into krusty land where the items would look less out of place

  15. Got the temple yesterday. I will now collect shovels. The papyri from the shovel earning tasks, panini press and neighbor visits alone should be enough to clear Taskmaster Willie on the last day. Since the amout of papyri for bonuts is so high, I won’t bother and rather have strong start for the pirates stage.

    I’ve been out of town for the last two weeks with limited internet access and very little free time, but somehow I managed to collect all the prizes from act 1 and I’ve got 2 left from act 2. Not entirely sure how I managed to pull that off.

    He never looks for praises
    He’s never one to boast
    He just goes on quietly working
    For those he loves the most
    His dreams are seldom spoken
    His wants are very few
    And most of the time his worries
    Will go unspoken too
    He’s there …. a firm foundation
    Through all our storms of life
    A sturdy hand to hold to
    In times of stress and strife
    A true friend we can turn to
    When times are good or bad
    One of our greatest blessings ,
    The man that we call Dad .

  18. I was finding this Egyptian stage a little lack luster compared with the prehistoric stage. One thing I do like is that Jesse Grass’ practice yoga task, and the hippie’s outdoor task go well with the Egyptian theme music, since there is a hippy guitar twank.

  19. Anybody else feel cheated that taskmaster willie is only a skin and not even a premium one at that. All that tapping for a normal skin. It is cool don’t get me wrong but i will probably never use it after the quest line is finished. So all those that may think about using donuts to finish because 8u could complete the act be aware that taskmaster willie is only a skin and not premium.

    • There’s no reason to expect any of the skins or even characters will be premium at the end of the prize track. Premium characters/skins are only bought with donuts unless on rare occasions.

    • Skins earned as prizes are, unfortunately, never premium. I have several skins for Willie, but all of them were event prizes, so none of them are premium. Have there ever been any premium skins offered for Willie?

      • yes i know the skins are normal but for all the grinding to get to end of Act and then just a skin. Kinda feel why did i bother. My point was to warn people not to spend donuts if they don’t complete the act. Taskmaster Willie is only a skin and not premium one. u would feel ripped off if u spent hard earned donuts to get a skin

  20. I unlocked the last prize this morning and am on bonut round #1. This act was a lot easier thanks to the shovels I hoarded and the panini press paying out every 4 hours (for most of it; it’s now 3 hourly).
