Should I Spend Donuts On Cosine Tangent and the Springfield Multicultural Center?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Update time in Springfield!  Always nice to see new content in TSTO, as the latest event has hit our games.  Of course, an all-new event means all-new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

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 Cosine Tangent and the Springfield Multicultural Center to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s take a look at the benefits of this combo in your Springfield…

Super Safi’s Monday Morning Musings 25 – (They Long to Be) Close to You

Morning Musically-Minded, Medically-Minded, Masticators!

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

 

Over the past 600+ episodes, The Simpsons has taken us on an amazing journey involving music, science, and food to name a few concepts.

And what better way to start your week, then by discussing some of these concepts Monday morning?

So let’s get started this week by talking about a billboard topping song from the 1970’s, ‘(They Long to Be) Close to You’.

Game of Games The Sequel Act 3 in Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ready for more Game of Games?  It’s time for Act 3…

Remember, this Act will still be playable until the event ends on July 16th.  However, Act 4 will start on July 7th. 

Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between Milhouse, Bart, Martin, and Nelson…

Milhouse: Guys, I found another one of The Game Master’s high scores. It’s in Chunky Island.
Bart: Isn’t that the adventure game where you play as a kid trying to escape fat camp?
Martin: I read that the kids get separated from the camp counselors and have to fend for themselves. Like that book with the British kids stranded on an island. You know, the one whose name I can’t say because it hasn’t yet entered public domain.
Bart: Nelson, I think you should play Chunky Island.
Nelson: You calling me fat, Simpson?
Bart: No…but you’re the only one of us who has any experience putting pig heads on spikes.
Nelson: Only because it makes them easier to carry home from the butcher shop. It’s the only pork my mom can afford.

This triggers the Act 3  questline, A Fat Lot of Good, and is followed by a 4hr task Nelson, as well as a task to collect Act 3 Currency (175).  A Fat Lot of Good is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.

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

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…..

I posted this a little earlier than usual because Game of Games The Sequel Act 3 will be hitting our games in a short while (11am ET).  Thoughts on the first 2 Acts?  Ready for Act 3?

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)  

Also, in big and exciting news…the kids and I are finally getting haircuts this afternoon!  (I’ve been cutting my husband’s hair at home.  I’m getting pretty good at it too, he only has 2 bald patches this time 😉 )

Stay safe.  Wash your hands.  Social distance.    Remember, we’re all in this together.

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!

Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments!

When we can, we’ll be posting a “Caption This!” moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

Hey Addicts… Caption This!

This Caption This! image is brought to us by Warcraftsbooboo…

So go ahead and caption away!

If you’ve got an image you’d like to submit for a “Caption this!” post, email it to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com you never know when yours might be next!

Friday Filler – Sometimes You Hafta Do the Hard Stuff- Even If It’s Easy


Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Holyfreakinshirt!  What day is it anyway?  I know I’ve complained about this before, during this “interesting new version of normal.”  But dammit…nothing is normal right now…except for TSTO.  It is sooooooo normal, that it is making me insane.

There is little doubt that we are stuck in a rut…and the people who are “coming back to the game,” after layoffs of  year, or even two (especially those who have been gone less than two years) have GOT to notice.  If you are paying attention, you will notice that almost nothing has changed in format in months, and months and months.  This isn’t a new observation…but, it really is like seeing an “Under Construction” sign on a new building…leaving for a year or two, and coming back to see that only the sign has been repainted.

And I’ve had enough. I’m going to get answers.  I’m going to call “EA Bob” and find out what the hell is going on, (besides very little.)

Here’s my list of things I’m going to ask, when I grab him between pizza runs on his side hustle, from his clearly part-time job at EA.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Act 2 is nearly a week old, have you finished it yet?  With Act 3 starting up this weekend, it’s time to finalize the posts for Act 2.  And y’all know finalizing the posts means….time for full dialogue!  Which oftentimes is the best part of the event.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Who’s up for another exciting prize post?  Yea…I’m right there with you.  Excitement isn’t exactly the ideal word to describe the Act 2 track.  But, nevertheless, it’s still important to break them down.  If for nothing else, so I can point to this post 6 months from now when they reappear in a mystery box somewhere.  😉

Anyway, we’ve already covered the first prize (Game Master Costume) here, so now let’s take a look at the last batch of Act 2 prizes: Lee Carvallo’s Standee, Space Simulator, and Bart’s Moon Mansion…
