Friday Filler – The Value of Our Most Precious Currency and Giving Back

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

There is nothing like an insanely busy fall season to bring home just how important our most precious TSTO currency really is.

This term was coined in some sense by Frink, although I can’t remember exactly when and where in the game dialogue. It had to do with time/space and how important time is to everyone in the game…and the game of life. And it stuck with me. Life currency…what a concept!

Certainly, nobody knows the expense of this valuable commodity like our Founder and Leader, Alissa, as the stats of reaching 100 MILLION hits, and being involved with moderating almost a half million comments would attest. The old saying, “that’s an hour of my life I won’t get back” never rang truer than than the hours, and hours and hours that she spends keeping this place alive for the rest of us, every single week. Yes…we all do “a part.” But, it is really a “one woman show” with a handful of bit players.

That said…she has always referred to TSTOAddicts as “her baby,” and judging by the amazing Mom she is in real life with her daughter, Riley, you can only imagine how dearly she protects and manages the moment-by-moment goings on that happen here.

Can it go on forever?

THOH XXVIII Prize Guide: Act 2, Prize 7 Greystash

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

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?

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts, with each Acts containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act.  Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the second act, you’re tasked with collecting Fairy Dust     () to unlock each prize!

The seventh Act 2 Prize awarded at 22,700 is Greystash, because every magical story needs an old grey haired wizard to show the little wizards the way….

So let’s take a closer look at this seventh prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…
