Springfield Showoff: Reader’s Choice

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we find ourselves sometimes forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU. So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Where Did THAT Come From – League of Extra-Horny Gentleman & Mo’s

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

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…..

Don’t forget voting is open in the latest Bracket Battle!  Pick your favorite buildings to advance!

Another reminder….Springfield Showoff (Reader’s Choice) is due tonight by 8pm ET.  Send your submissions in to TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com or post them on our Showoff annoucement post.

Russian Tigger (who does an AMAZING job on FGA, despite Bunny’s mysterious disappearances) is sharing some thoughts on the new Futurama Game over on Family Guy Addicts.  Check it out if you’re playing (or interested in playing) FWOT.

Superheroes round 3 ended today..and Homer’s Cannon ends tomorrow.  So looks like we’re setup for another (hopefully big) update to hit on Tuesday!  What are your thoughts for what will hit?  Anything you’re hoping for?  Anything you’re hoping doesn’t hit?

How was the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting? Almost August…Summer is winding down fast!

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!

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Building, Week 6

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there are plenty of buildings in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. We present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Building Bracket Battle.

Friday Filler- When EA Actually Makes Life EAsier!

Thank Grog It’s Firday!!

I am amazed. Really, really, really amazed (sorry…with this administration, it is hard not to use the word “really” a whole lot of times in a row…like a really, really, really, lot of times in a row).  Where was I? Oh. Right…

I am amazed that EA actually didn’t mess up one of the biggest weeks of my recent history, by forcing me to tap wildly throughout what should have been (and was) a tap-free weekend. It’s very, very, very rare. Really.

What did I do?  What did I think of the update (that I mostly skipped)?? What could possibly have taken me away from donuts and ding-dongs? Read on…

Throwing Back Seasons with the Fuzzball – Season 5

Hey hey there friends!

So… in case you’re new to this post series… we launched a new feature on the site where I do an audio recap of Seasons of The Simpsons plus whatever other stuff comes out of my mouth. Basically it’s all The Simpsons stuff from the weekly podcast I do. With Totbox on a hiatus from the amazing Throwback posts that I’ve come to love, this is my way of keeping some sort of throwback going and while I’ll miss the hilarity that is Totbox covering episodes of the Best. Show. Ever., I like this format. Shoutout to Alissa for even thinking of this amazing example of the power of double dipping. NOTE: Do not double dip Cheetos… not a good example.

Said overpowering of my taste buds by cheesy poofs aside, one of the goals we’ve had on the site is to provide a variety of different formats for content for y’all.  In case you missed my blatant self-promotion from a few months back, I have been recording a podcast of my own where I ramble on about life, the universe, and everything but mostly geek stuff. I’ve been having a great time and somehow have kept the show going for almost one whole year… 50 episodes as of this writing.

Laugh It Up Fuzzball Podcast Image

Long and short of these throwing back seasons with the fuzzball posts is that I cull all of The Simpsons stuff from my podcast into a shortened version just for the readers of the site. Long versions of Laugh It Up Fuzzball are always available but I’m well aware that the universe and our lives don’t always have the time we’d like for all the entertainment available. I also know everyone doesn’t necessarily want to listen to me ramble on about geekery for an hour or more each week. That being said, I figured (and hoped) some of you might be interested in my thoughts about older seasons of The Simpsons so here we are.WookieeIn this edition, I cover Season Five of the Best. Show. Ever. Ostensibly, these will be up every time I  do a long format episode that includes the Kwyjibo Corner (what I call my Simpsons segment on the podcast). I do a lot of guest episodes and cover other assorted geek things so I don’t always get around to covering Simpsons. What I can promise is lots of geek news, comics, anime, video games, Star Wars, dystopia, movie reviews, and whatever randomness finds its way onto the recording. Anyhoo… without further words since the goal is just to supply an easy listen, here is this week’s Throwing Back Seasons with the Fuzzball.

Congrats on completing Level 5 of this experiment. For more info about Laugh It Up Fuzzball, you can check out the website (laughitupfuzzball.net). There’s also a Facebook page (facebook.com/laughitupfuzzballpodcast) if you want to join and a closed group for talking geek called Laugh It Up Fuzzballs. It’s easy to join though so come on down if you like. You also can see my real name and friends if that interests you (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1879505335626093). You can reach me on twitter/instagram (@wookieeriot) or the website and of course, as always, here in the comments. Feel free to subscribe to Laugh It Up Fuzzball over on iTunes, googleplay, the stitcher app, or PlayerFM. Several other apps pull from all these so there’s a plethora of ways to listen and/or comment. I hope to see some of your thoughts, comments, and ideas.

If you really want to be my best friend, become a listener of the podcast. I put out new episodes once a week and I think it shows how much effort I put into it. Let me know if you like these season reviews to entice me to do more. Even better, be a superhero and rate and/or comment on the shows on iTunes, Stitcher, GooglePlay, or wherever you’re listening an can do so. Ratings help get all this out to even more people. Hopefully you like these posts as much as I do putting them together. Thanks so much for listening, I remain the Wookiee, your resident walking carpet of Simpsons geekery. You stay classy and thanks for stopping by.

TTFN… Wookiee out!

Road to Riches…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well it’s finally come time for me to sit down and write the long awaited Road the Riches post.  Many of you have been asking for more details for a while & have been patiently waiting for me to finish this post.   My apologies for not getting this done sooner.  It started as being too busy from the Time Travel Event to get down to the full details of it, but then turned into I was REALLY enjoying the downtime & really needed the battery recharge….and it was getting increasingly hard to have a desire to sit down and write a post like this.  But I’m here..and I’ve got it knocked out for you now…

(Truth be told…after nearly 4 years of doing this site (and writing over 2,700 of the over 4,500 posts on this site) I’m just tired.  Some days it’s a struggle to find the desire to write about or even play TSTO.  Of course I know that’ll change when the next event hits, but for now I’m enjoying the downtime..)

So, I’m sure most of you have already finished the Road to Riches waiting for me to get you the details…but for those that haven’t (or for those who are just getting there) here’s the 411 on Cecil’s expensive improvements….
