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…..

Sorry, this is a little late…Riley was playing ABC Mouse on the computer and I forgot all about it!

The Simpsons are back tonight with an all-new episode! What will happen in the new episode tonight?

No Bucks Given mini-event started up this week.  Initial thoughts on it?  Prizes? Questline?

Another day of social distancing.  How’s it working out for you?  Going stir crazy yet?

How’s your Springfield design 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 was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

Stay safe.  Wash your hands.  Social distance.  And if you need a laugh watch this video from Pat…

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!

  1. Anyone have any idea if it’s possible to open the game on a computer and play so that you can see your entire Springfield? I’m running out of things to occupy my time and my town desperately needs reworked. Can’t stand trying to build streets and layout sections on a phone.

    I feel like I’ve seen some crazy work around to make this happen but I may be losing it mentally right now. 🙂

  3. I did the update and now whenever I touch the app to open it goes black then back to the app. It will not load or open or anything. This happens on 3 accounts all on different iPads. Tried uninstall and reinstall same thing. I have played since the beginning and don’t want to miss this. Any help?!!

NOW!!! am king of the world baby!!! am in the IN crowd, the expert, the most sought out for advise, a shaman among the people.. my skills and knowledge are now valuable and appreciated.. all thanks to social isolation…” — Loners all around the world.

    • In the “BC” (before children) I made my mark on the world. Now, I’ve been training for this two decades. 😀

  5. Manhole covers – from the spy event a few seasons back.
    My brain is Swiss cheese and I can’t seem to find it…

    They are all popped up. I know tapping on something raises them and lowers them. What is it to lower them again?

    BTW, it IS still Sunday, isn’t it?

  6. Will they ever fix the crashes while farming rattrucks? Sigh…

  7. It looks like I’m having trouble with the like button on people’s comments .
    I’ve been having trouble with WordPress for months and now I have to login every time to do a comment .
    So just assume that I like everyone’s comment and move on from there .

    See ya bye. 👽

    Hey Tapped out players,
    I’ve been playing this game awhile and I feel I’ve hit a rut. I own everything nonpremium available, of all my friends I’m the top level and highest springfield heights value. Higher level neighbours needed maybe for motivation ? Add me (Rebeckatro509) Seems like I’m not working towards anything anymore. Thoughts?? This last update feels lack luster as well. Maybe it’s time to part ways with TSTO …

  9. Happy Sunday
    Happy Tapping

    I hope all are safe and secure during these difficult times 👍🏻

    If you completed the Mini Event? Did it seem like fun? I thought so (maybe Mini Events are better for now). 🤔

    When not Tapping, I’m taking advantage of Roku apps (Pluto TV and it’s Doctor Who Channel), or those free digital subchannels (Comet TV) via digital antenna. Of course, spring cleaning continues ….

    Keep On Tapping
    Stay Alive ☺️

  10. Lisa just turned on the TV and we saw a college basketball game.
    The stands FILLED with fans!
    Shoulder to shoulder!
    What in the world……

    Clicked on INFORMATION
    Repeat of a game from 5 years ago.

    • Yeh doing that here with old football games

    • And the Chicago Cubs have won the World Series!
      Never gets old.😄⚾❤

      • I must have slept through that one.

        • Jealous. It ok. I still like you.

          • I’m not jealous, I just don’t follow the game. So I might well have literally slept through it.

            • As we say here in the good old USA
              🎶See the USA in your Chevrolet🎶
              🎶Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet 🎶

              You ain’t one of the lower 48

                1) if I had a success rate in my job of 30%, I’d be fired.
                2) in the words of Homer Simpson “baseball, without beer is boring”
                3) do you know what hotdogs are made of?
                4) I can think of at least 10 types of pie that I prefer over apple
                5) I can think of at least 5 types of pie that begin with the letter P that I prefer over apple pie.
                6) the Chevy Nova did quite poorly in Spanish speaking countries “no va” literally translates to mean “no go”
                7) as I have mentioned in numerous prior posts, i am Canadian baby birth.
                8) hockey is literally the coolest game on earth (ok, a few other winter sports could argue their points too)

              • 3) sausage and hot dogs, like Cajun food, taste great because of the seasonings. Just like us old folks, we may be full of “dooo-dooo”, but our seasoning makes us GREAT

                8) to say that a game played on ice is ‘cool’ is redundant 🥶

              • MangoFusion01

                That comes straight from the department of redundancy department. Sorry, I cant change their rules.

      • Sigh.. I miss baseball. It’s really going to hit me hard on Thursday.

        • No kidding!!! Im already missing it! We finally got the stupid special Cubs channel…and all its good for is classic stuff. That gets old. Pun intended.

        • There is a massive audience out here that misses baseball games at the Sports Book section of every Casino (plush seats, good food, drinks & if your team wins? so do you!) ….. we need our televised sports back soon (this won’t last a month with nothing before a population goes nuts!) 😣

          • i always thought that baseball was used just like background noise.. to put babies to sleep and to have some background noise during boring conversations.. lol..

  11. Hey all,

    I know I’ve been absent for quite some time. Teaching has really taken its toll on my time and ability to play the game as much as I used to. However I’m still about, just much less.

    I’m about to embark on 12 weeks social distancing and staying home from school to work. Schools closed on Friday in the UK and remain open to only children of key workers such as doctors, nurses, emergency services and key retail workers. Have asked not to be put in the rota of staff to cover school everyday as my housemate is in the vulnerable group with underlying health conditions.
    Things I’m looking forward to- plenty of time to replan all my lessons and do subject reading as well as general household things I need to do.
    Things I’m not looking forward to- not be able to lead my Guide meetings, not going to church (both are suspended by relevant organisations), not really leaving the house. I’ll miss actually teaching even if the kids do drive me crazy sometimes.

  12. Enjoying this event/ distraction from the world. I know all of us have complaints about EA at times but now we got a reminder that it’s a game and a great way to unwind from life. Thank you EA for being there for us during these times.

  13. Seemed strange this morning….
    Today is Mothers Day here in the UK, so I drove over to my Mum’s, left a card, chocolates and flowers on the doorstep, rang the bell and ran away – at least halfway down the garden! 🙂 (Mum is 85 in October, so she is well into the high risk groups)

    We exchanged pleasantries at a distance, my Dad yelled “Thanks for the chocolates!” from indoors, and then I went home.

    Seemed very strange, but it was obvious that Mum appreciated it, anyway.

    Best wishes to everyone, and to your friends and relatives!

    Remember, this too shall pass.

  14. Happy tapping all, stranger times we live in, were will it end, trying to stay positive, patrics video a blast, lol take care all

  15. A teacher was going to teach her kindergarten class to learn their parents name .

    The teacher asked Little Billy
    what his mother’s name was.

    Little Billy said Mommy.

    The teacher asked what does your father call her.

    Little Billy said Mommy.

    The teacher asked what does her friends call her.

    Little Billy said she does not have any friends.

    See ya bye. 👽

    Spending another day cooking. Yesterday was homemade pasta, today homemade pizza the way my grandma used to make it…no mozzarella.

    This is typical of the region where my grandma was from. Here is Nona Gina showing how to make it.

  17. Happy Sunday everyone
    Let it be safe and solitary
