Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

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…..

Week 3 of Game of Games launched last week, and we’re close to week 4 (the final week) starting. How are you doing with week 3? Thoughts on the prizes?  Questlines? Just excited to have new content?

The Yankees and Red Sox (baseball) are playing over in London.  Any of our UK readers go to the games?

How’s your designing coming?  What are you doing with your town?  Share some photos in the comments below! (If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post)  

And finally, how about the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

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!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Game of Games Prize Guide: Act 3, Prize 2 Dash Dingo

I didn’t get a chance to cover Dash yesterday, so here’s a special Saturday post all about Dash Dingo…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Let the games begin!  After a long hiatus, we finally have a major event in Springfield!  Act 3 of Game of Games has arrived and it looks to be a game fest of nerdy proportions!

The Game of Games event follows the same event structure that the Simpsons Christmas Special and Love, Springfieldian Style events followed.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!

For Week 3, Act 3, we’re following the Evergreen Terrors through another round of gaming competition, and a new villain suddenly appears.  All of the prizes unlocked during week 3 play a role in that storyline.

So let’s take a look at the second prize this week Dash Dingo…

Friday Filler – Alternate Event Math in the Donut Farming Era

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

If we are to be pragmatic about the current state of affairs in TSTO, you have to be a true “Purist” to choose not to donut farm.  In almost every instance, concentrating on farming, so you can concentrate on rushing, so you can actually have more “Life Currency,” is simply the most prudent use of your time (which is of course, Life Currency defined).

Case in point, the choice whether to grind every 4 hours to complete the tasks involved with the event, or whether to simply make donut farming your substitute grind…even during downtime and during events. This is a decision that requires a bit of “New TSTO Math.

I have played this event both ways…mostly due to the need to actually “live more life” while still “getting everything.”

Let me explain…then you can decide.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Game of Games Week 3 is Live!

Things kick off for week 3 with some dialogue between Homer and Mr. Burns…

Homer: Mr. Burns, I need your help. I need replacement passes to E4 for my kids.
Mr. Burns: You’ve come to the right place. I always buy a bunch of passes then sell them for a profit.
Homer: You’re scalping tickets. That’s terrible.
Mr. Burns: Believe me, this is by far the least bloody scalping I’ve ever done.

This is followed by a 6s tasks for Homer and Mr. Burns.  Once completed you’ll trigger the week 3 questline, which will take you through unlocking all of the week 3 prizes, Siblings and Sorcery.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during week 3…
