Addicts 5-Year Look Back: You Might Be An Addict If…

Throughout the years we’ve always liked to poke fun of the fact that we were called TSTO Addicts.  Afterall, everyone is here because they’re addicted to a silly little mobile game. 

One of the ways I liked to poke fun of it was by a regular feature, in our early years, called You Might Be An Addict If…(along the same lines of Jeff Foxworthy’s You Might Be A Redneck If…) And I thought no better way to end our Look Back posts than with a Look back to these classics!  Afterall, who doesn’t want a good laugh the night before a major event is about to hit?

So enjoy the laughs….

Moe’s Ark Update in App Store, but NOT Live in Games

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Yes, the Moe’s Ark update has hit our app stores.  Yes, it’s a day earlier than expected.  And no, nothing is wrong with your game…it’s not supposed to trigger yet.

If you’ve downloaded the update from the app store you’ll see that the splash screen and icon have changed, however, nothing else has.  This is because the update is NOT set to trigger until TOMORROW, August 1st, at 10am ET.

Which means…you won’t see anything new in your game until TOMORROW at 10am ET.  So don’t panic!

So basically right now Springfield is EXACTLY the same as it was an hour ago.  Nothing has changed except the Splash Screen and Icon.

Once it’s live tomorrow we’ll be back with all of the Act 1 details…until then it’s business as usual for the residents of our Pocket-Sized Springfields….

5th Year Blogoversary – Looking Back – Superstition in Our Games?

Back in 2016, I wrote an article about some of the “Superstitions” I had with my town. Actions that while not being completely OCD, certainly had signs that were tantamount to “rally hats” or “secret rituals” that could/might change the outcome of the game or your day, especially if ignored.

No. Contrary to appearing most often in my “CrankyOldGuy Uniform” for many Addicts Live, I do not have a special outfit that I wear when tapping. In fact, on many days, I don’t even wear pants (do sweats count?) when I am doing my most ardent tapping and designing.

But, I would also like to say that I have overcome my need/fear/obsession with keeping certain tasks running, 24/7.  I would like to say it. But, I can’t.

In fact…it ha gotten worse. Let’s take a look at the original post…and then I will illuminate you on how my symptoms have progressed.
