Christmas 2018 Prize Guide: Act 4, Prizes 1 and 2 Toy Train and Pile of Presents

Ho Ho Ho Holiday Tappers!

Bust out the tinsel and be sure to hang those stockings by the chimney with care because Christmas time is in the air! That’s right my friends, Christmas (and snow, lots and lots of snow) has hit our pocket-sized towns!

This year EA is trying something different, as I’ve laid out in this post, in that Christmas 2018 consists of multi-events.  Basically, the Simpson family will host four stories to be told over the course of December with a new story releasing each week.  As we’re taken through each story a series of prizes are released to correspond with the theme of the story.  For Week 4, Act 4, we’re following a Polar Express tale, as told by Maggie (through Homer), and the prizes we unlock all fit into the visit to the North Pole theme.

So let’s take a look at the first two prizes this week, the Toy Tain and Pile of Presents…

Should I Spend Donuts On Kid First Industries and Jim Hope?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Grab your Santa hats and break out the tinsel because it’s Christmas time in Springfield! Yes the annual TSTO Christmas event has arrived in our pocket-sized towns, covering our usual perfect weather towns with a fresh blanket of bright, white, snow!   Of course, by now, we all know that a new event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with limited-time premium items to tempt us.

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 Kid First Industries and Jim Hope to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this toy loving combo to your town…

Showoff Reminder: Christmas 2018

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A couple of weeks ago we announced the next Springfield showoff featuring your Christmas/winter designs and here is your reminder post.  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff featuring your Christmas/Winter inspired designs!  So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

Finish up those designs and send them to us ASAP!  We’ll be putting up the Showoff post, featuring your designs on WEDNESDAY JANUARY 2nd, 2019….so you’ve got just under a week to finish up your designs if you’d like to be featured.

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm EDT Tuesday, January 1st, 2019.  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 the showoff announcement 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.)
