Christmas 2019 (Abe’s in Toyland) Prize Guide: Act 2, Prizes 5 Edwina

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s finally Christmas in Springfield!  Our pocket-sized Springfields have been covered with a fresh blanket of snow!  What’s in store for us this time?  Well, we’re tasked with trying to determine if Grampa Simpson ever saves Christmas, while he bores Death…well to death! Loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up.

Abe’s in Toyland follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it.  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 2, Act 2, we’re following the second, Grampa Saves Christmas, story…a tale from the streets of London!  All of the prizes unlocked during week 2 play a role in that storyline.

So let’s take a look at prize 5 Edwina…

Festivus for the Rest of Us: Air Your TSTO Grievances

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy Festivus!  Yes, today, December 23rd, is officially Festivus…for the rest of us!

What is Festivus?  Well, although not created by the show Seinfield…it was really brought to light (and greatly exaggerated) by the show.  In particular, in an episode titled “The Strike”.

Here’s a little more about Festivus…via Seinfield:

So while we don’t have an Aluminum Pole…although I work for an Aluminum company, so I’ve got plenty in my office…and there will be no feats of strength on this site today, I still want to celebrate Festivus…in the best way possible.  By airing our TSTO Grievances!

I feel like 2019 has been an up and down year in TSTO, one in which the players have a lot of pent up frustration and anger towards EA.  So let’s use this Festivus to air those Grievances about TSTO!

Mad about multi-events?  Angry about a lack of new content during events?  Ticked about long wait times between events? Annoyed with land tokens? Wish EA would just give TSTO a little bit of effort?  Tell everyone in the comments below!  (just keep it clean, watch your language, and keep everything directed at TSTO….not each other)

So go ahead and air those grievances, it’s a great way to end 2019!

Super Safi’s Monday Morning Math Mayhem 33 – Statistics (Probabilities, Odds, Permutations, and Combinations)

Morning Mathematical Monsters & Maniacs!

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “M”)

 

Hi, I’m Super Safi and you may remember me from such stats and strategy posts as Kwik-E-Mart Farming and the advanced losing-to-win Superheroes battle strategy.

Over the past 600+ episodes, The Simpsons has taken us on an amazing mathematical journey involving fractions, probability, Fermat’s last theorem, and hundreds of other aspects from the wonderful world off mathematics.

And what better way to start your week, then by discussing math Monday morning?

This week we continue our discussion of the lottery from last week while looking at probability, odds, permutations, and combinations.
