This is Halloween! Some THOH Event Info…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Correction on the dates.  Just got this from EA:  Hitting App stores the 13th, Live on the 14th.  

So late last week, we received an event packet from EA.  And just moments ago EA sent out an email saying it was ok to release some of the info contained in that packet.  And guys, I’m happy to finally be able to share some stuff with you…because I hate keeping secrets from y’all.  So, with that being said:

Some good news for you on this Friday as we head into the weekend…Halloween is coming to TSTO!

Ok, we all knew Halloween was coming.  That’s not really an earth-shattering announcement, but this is…

ITEM LIMITS ARE INCREASING BY 1,000!!!!  (from 13k to 14k) 

From EA: “We know this has been long requested, and we are pleased to grant that wish!”

And now some other info I’m thrilled to finally be able to share with you guys…

The THOH XXXI Event is set to launch next week.  With the files arriving in the App Store on October 12th (Monday), and the event going live on October 13th (Tuesday). Updating in the app store on the 13th (Tuesday) and going live on the 14th (Wednesday)

Here’s a look at the splash screen…

That’s about all I can share that this particular moment (I can share more on Monday…), but this looks like it’s going to be awesome!

Thoughts? Excitement? What are you hoping to see? (aside from a format change, because at this point I don’t think that’s happening)  Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!

Friday Filler – Accepting The End, Before It’s the End


Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Except it isn’t…

Once again, I am forced to write this early, due to situations beyond my control…even though I did everything I could to control them. The fact is, there are some things you simply can’t control…only try to manage.

Some people say that 2020 may very well be the worst year in their lives.  I guess that depends on how long your life is.  Being old…with lots of life…I contend that 1968 still “wins” that distinction.  But, I have to admit, 2020 is rapidly coming up on the backstretch.  But in the end, there is simply no way to control the “final chapter” of any life.  You can try to plan, to help you manage what you predict to be true. But, in the end, “the end” will come when it comes…and you can bet that the one who is at the finish line, is never really prepared or willing to admit that this is really the end.

What I can say…is that those of us who play TSTO, have long predicted “The End” of the game…but as we have all witnessed, we have been wrong.  The game just keeps rising from the dead…or perhaps continues to be “resurrected” in some Lazarus form of “near death,” that befuddles and amazes everyone, except maybe Lazarus.

“The End” clearly is not here for TSTO.  In fact, we’re not even certain what “The End” would look like.  But when it comes to “The End,” there are a few things on which everyone must agree…
