Should I Spend Donuts on Shiva?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

There’s nothing quite as beautiful as Springfield in the snow, is there? Yes, there’s no denying that it’s officially Winter in our pocket-sized towns as the 2017 Holiday Event blew into our towns with a major cold front!  Of course, while the town is frosty cold the store is hot, hot, hot…and loaded with new premium items just tempting us to spend our sprinkles!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us 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 Shiva to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this multi-armed B.S. League member to your town…

Showoff Announcement: Christmas 2017

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Springfield designs of holiday/wintery.Rigellian Proportions!  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff featuring your Christmas/Holiday/Winter/Rigellian inspired designs!  So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

While we’re still nearly 2 weeks away from the end of the Christmas Event, we’re right up against a holiday week…so I wanted to give y’all PLENTY of time to work on your designs for the next showoff…because it’s always so helpful to see what others have done with all this new stuff!   So send us your Christmas/Holiday/Winter/Rigellian inspired designs and we’ll be putting up the Showoff post, featuring your designs, on TUESDAY January 2nd, 2018…so you’ve got nearly 2 weeks, plus TWO holidays (Christmas & New Year’s) AND 2 weekends to prep your towns.  Take your time and design as you see fit! 🙂

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm EDT Monday, January 1st, 2018.  Can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.

You can send your designs in two ways…either post a link to the image in the comments on this post or you can email them to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  We won’t be pulling images from anywhere else, so please if you want to be featured either submit in the comments below or email your images to us.

Note: PLEASE try to limit your submissions to only 1-2 of your favorite screenshots.  We like to try and let everyone showoff their town but it becomes difficult when some of you are sending in 7-10 images.  Pick your favorite areas and send them in (or if you stitch photos together, that works too).  We’ll try our best to get EVERYONE in, but please understand that sometimes we miss a photo or two.  If we miss you one week, we’ll try really hard to make sure we get you in the next week.  You’re always welcome to showoff your town, at any time, on our Flickr page.  We know a lot of you have awesome towns that you want to show off, but please try to stick with this week’s theme.  Remember, this isn’t a contest.  There’s nothing to win.  It’s just a fun way to showoff your town and get some design inspiration from your fellow Addicts.  🙂   

Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff?  Post your images  in the Comments below or email us your screenshots at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

This time around EA has added a Holiday Bazaar section of the store, an area FULL of rebated (and not rebated) items from holidays (and some other events) past.  If you’re not sure how to find the Holiday Bazaar in your store check out this postWondering if you should add any of these throwback items to your Springfield?  Let’s check it out…
