Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that favorite time of an Act…the fun and exciting, and always well-read, prize breakdown post!  And if you believe any of those adjectives I’ve got some oceanfront property in Arizona to sell you… Anyway, the prizes must be broken down!  Why?  Because if I didn’t do them what else would I refer people back to when they ask what something does 6 months from now?

Act 3 of the 2020 Christmas event consists of 2 new decorations, 1 group, 1 building, and one new character.

We’ve already broken down the Act 3 character, Moses, here…so let’s take a look at the remaining Act 3 prizes: the Rappin’ Rabbis, Orthodox Ambulance, Menorah Pile & Burns Cult HQ…

Addicts Want to Know: 2020 “Year In Review”

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, it’s finally the last day of 2020.  2020 has been a year like no other for many of us, but it’s still another year in the books and another year full of TSTO events.  As we prepare to head into 2021, I’m trying to figure out how to do an Addicts Live year in reivew.  Just like we’ve done in previous years, the year in review episode breaks down all the events of 2020 in TSTO.

So in preparation for that, however it may look this year, I’ve prepared an Addicts Poll…a place for you to break down just the events of 2020. This way we can get your opinions in too.

I’ve broken this up into two categories…Main (Multi) Events and Mini Events.

So please, take a moment to answer the poll questions below about the events in TSTO during 2020, and as always feel free to elaborate your thoughts more in the comments below.

And we will share your results with that special Addicts Live Year in Review Show.

Thank you!

Christmas 2020 Act 3 in Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know

Sorry guys I forgot to hit post this morning! 🤦‍♀️

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In our games, the snow is falling and TSTO is calling yoo hoo!  It’s the most wonderful time of the year Tappers, Christmas in TSTO!  Act 3 of the Clash of Creeds Christmas Royale is upon us! Also always, 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…

Remember, this Act will still be playable until the event ends on January 13th.  However, Act 4 will start on January 5th (Note the Tuesday start date). 

Things kick off for Act 3 with some dialogue between Ned and Rabbi K…

Ned: Can you help us bring Homer back home for Christmas, Rabbi?
Rabbi Krustofsky: Enough with the C-word already. No guarantees, but I will pray for divine blessing on your quest. Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu.
Ned: …Melech ha’olam.
Rabbi Krustofsky: How do you know this prayer?
Ned: I try to follow Christ in every way I can — and since he had a bar mitzvah, I had one, too!

This triggers the Act 3  questline, Tire Fire and Brimstone, and is followed by a 4hr task for Ned and Rabbi K, as well as a task to collect Act 3 Currency (150).  Hallowed Be Thy Shame 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…
