Look. I’m kinda done trying to “make happy” about this update. I think even the most ardent “Potter-Heads” are feeling like they are stuck in a Ground Hog Day version of the Harry Potter ride at Universal Studio, and can’t get off…while it loops endlessly…until you want to shove your magic wand deep into your eye sockets.
Ok. Maybe that is too harsh. But, I am really, really, really, really bored with the “EAsy” version of a major update, that simply requires you to log in every 4 hours…clear the slate…and go back to your life. *POOF!* Magic. Meh. Whatever.
Happy Halloween everyone! Today’s the day for Tricks & Treats, Pranks & Candy, Goblins & Ghouls…it’s the day we’ve been celebrating over and over again since the THOH update hit!
As many of you know…Halloween isn’t exactly my favorite holiday. In fact, I downright strongly dislike it. Nevertheless, I’ll still be celebrating with the Tiny Addict later today. This year she wanted to be Minnie Mouse…to the surprise of no one. (Patric even gave her Minnie Ears in the banner this month) For those that like little photo updates….
You can view even more photos of the Tiny Addict on my Instagram…
How will you be celebrating Halloween? Costume plans? (feel free to share some photos if you’re not too shy) Trick-or-treating? Scary Movie athon? Turning off all of your lights and pretending no one’s home so you get out of giving candy?
And if you’re looking for something fun to watch, you can check out the Halloween Episode of Addicts Live!
Act 3 of this magical Halloween hit our towns very early this morning. A magical event full of beasts to battle, wands to wave and goblin gold to grab!
For Act 3 of Halloween you’re tasked with continuing the questline, including adding the Academy Ruins…so we can all see just what what’s his name is up to
As was mentioned in the rundown post, Act 3 of Halloween runs until…November 14th. (when the whole event leaves Springfield)
Don’t forget the Questline will help you get some bonus prize currency…so make sure you complete it to earn that extra currency…also the questline is there to guide you. Make sure you complete the main questline in order to unlock things like neighbor actions, crafting and more.
Now let’s wave our wands and view the quick walkthrough for the third Act of Halloween…
Gooooood mooooorning Tappers! Welcome to the wee early morning hours, who’s ready to cast a spell on Act 3? Brush up those wand waving skills, Act 3 is upon us my friends! (Try to control your excitement…)
Remember…this is an automatic change in your game. Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..
Miss Hoover gets things started (if you don’t have her it’ll autostart), and you’ll have to collect event currency.
Act 3 Runs until November 14th (When the event ends)
It’s time for a little Magical Halloween to invade Springfield! With this all new magical event a few returning items magically returned to our stores…just asking us to drop our sprinkles.
Of course with that limited-time label, it can be tempting to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon. But don’t sweat it! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add Gravedigger Billy, Pet Cemetery + Zombies or the Spooky Walls to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…
Fall has arrived and there’s a haze over our Springfield’s, that can only mean one thing….it’s Halloween in our pocket-sized towns! This year EA’s thrown a little magic into the mix, with an Angelica Button theme invading our towns. We’ve got beasts to battle, creatures to capture, wizards to wand wave and goblin gold to gather! Quite a few alliteration altercations huh?
Of course, it wouldn’t be an event in TSTO without some premium content. And halfway through Act 2 of Halloween, your premium character of choice is Evil Shopkeeper. No Beast battles, but he does come with his own questline.
Now let’s wave our wands and view the quick walkthrough for the third Premium Character Questline of Halloween…
Just a reminder that Act 2 of the Halloween/THOH/Magical Event/Angelica Button Event/Harry Potter Event…whatever the heck you wanna call it…Ends TOMORROW October 31st at 0800 GMT (4am ET).
Once the Act 2 is over you will no longer be able to earn Fairy Dust Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning wands if you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Act starts…)
Crafting will STILL be available in the next Act, As will the Goblin Gold you’ve accumulated.
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…..
No new Simpsons this week…World Series is on instead. What were your thoughts on last week’s THOH episode?
Halloween Act 2 ends on Tuesday…how are you doing with the prize track? Ready for Act 3?
Halloween is Tuesday! Any plans? Costume ideas?

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!
Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things. These posts are all about those strange and funny moments!
When we can, we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!
