  1. Catching up on my Addicts — completely forgot about the “Test Out the Hog” animated job. I miss when EA would add things like that to the Task Book to try out. Pretty funny one too — only wish he’d ride around a little. Oh well. Nice building and the Ball of Death will go nicely in my county fair/circus area once I make the room for it.

  2. Can you tell me how I might get extra land so that I cagn expand? I contacted EA and they told me about something in using the golden goose realty. I tried and nothing happened. Maybe you can explain to me how.

    1. Every once in a while, and they are rare, the daily challenge prize will be a land token. Think I’ve had 4 in 16 months.
      Never waste tokens on land you can buy for $IGC if you don’t have Golden Goose Realty – and only use them like that if you really have to when you do get it.
      IIRC there’s 592 land tiles on the edge of the map that you can only get with a token so keep an eye out for the GGR when EA make it available again, and that’s rare too.

  3. ❤️ everything about this Mini Event (yes I even accept the plot these writers pieced together from different Episodes, because it’s short and to the point vs stretched out over 4 Acts).

    Stolen Bicycle Graveyard is crap (if you don’t want EA to offer up dumb Prizes that take up too much real estate? you need to leave your constructive criticism on the official tysto Facebook Page).

    I’ve kept Ball of Death in my Springfield, because I’m joining many Tappers in trying to get EA into adding a permanent Character Task for it. Enjoying my 2 Voiced Characters and their Buildings!

      I’m sorry the Kindle is giving you difficulties with this Game App. If you ever want to upgrade? Best Buy has the Samsung – Galaxy Tab S5e – 10.5″ for $150 (Samsung guarantees an OS and Security Patch updates, there’s plenty of RAM and ROM that will make sure TSTO doesn’t freeze up on you). 🤔

      1. You got me all excited, because I’ve been thinking of getting my dad a new tablet. But the only Galaxy Tab S5e I saw on the Best Buy site was $480! Do you have a link for the one you saw?

        1. Sandrashill

          Check for :

          Samsung – Galaxy Tab A7 10.4″ Wi-Fi 32GB ($199.99)

          Samsung – Galaxy Tab A7 10.4″ Wi-Fi 64GB ($229)

          If you see a device is sold out because it was on sale? That’s because it’s a “buy now or cry later” (you better buy it while it’s available, or you will cry later when it’s gone). Certain devices are even sold cheaply because they are “out of box” (aka the displayed device).

          If not Best Buy? Check on Amazon.. 😉

      2. It’s a $65 device and it does the job 🙂
        When it doesn’t I’ll run both games on my phone and just keep signing out and swapping over. ( My main town is huge, that does run like it’s a sea of treacle if I load that on the Kindle !! )
        My budget and wish list don’t include plans for any new tech 🙁

        1. I’m there with you. I just spent my tech budget on a new phone (S21…with a trade-in). And now I need a new laptop. So I’m in this…do I really need the laptop? Or can I deal with what I currently have a bit longer?

          1. About a year ago, I finally caved and replaced my truly ancient laptop. I really wanted a Lenovo T model, as I use then at work and love them (best keyboard in the world!). I managed to find a fairly recent model, used, but in great condition (and including Windows 10 Professional), on eBay for somewhere between $300 and $400 (I don’t remember, exactly….I was originally aiming to spend $300, but I think this was a significantly more recent model at a great price and I went a bit over my “budget.”) At any rate, I don’t use it that often, but, when I do, the frustration-free experience I have with it compared to what my old laptop was like, makes sending that money seem so worth it!

            1. Mine is from 2014, I’ve restored the OS a few times and it’s still awful lol
              We have a desktop that I use for Live, but I’d like to move to our basement to record, so I don’t interrupt my poor husband so much! That would require a new laptop for sure. Debating if I should hold out and get a MacBook because they seem to last forever (even though I hate apple)… or if I should just buy a decent windows one at Costco for half the cost.

              1. I still say consider getting a good used one from highly rated seller on eBay. I was understandably leery about making a purchase like that on eBay, but I made sure to use a seller with a great rating, and it worked out great and allowed me to get a much better laptop than I would otherwise have been able to afford. (And, not that it’s a competition, but I’m pretty sure my old laptop was a fair bit older than yours is even! Between being super slow (I can relate to showing down with age, lol!) and really annoyingly loud (the fan ran constantly because that laptop got really hot!), it was such a relief to replace it.

                Oh, and the other thing about getting a computer from, say, Best Buy is that I don’t think you can get Windows 10 Professional, only Home, or at least not in the less expensive machines (which may or may not even matter to you). I don’t know about Costco, though…maybe that’s different there.

                I’m not a Mac person (don’t enjoy using that OS as well and Apple charges so much more for their products) and the Lenovo models that are really built for corporate use, like the T series are pretty durable and reliable. But, if you’re already heavily invested in the Applesphere, or you’re planning to do a lot of graphic design or something, then the MacBook might be a good idea.

        2. Graham-S

          I can’t say a pandemic is the best time to offer up “you can afford to buy this” …. I can say TSTO Addicts has some great posts regarding discussions of “when it’s time to upgrade your old device” …. the factors being a device that doesn’t have enough RAM (I recommend at least 4Gigs) and ROM (my device has 128Gigs built in, I still have 90Gigs of free space, Alissa has always confirmed that TSTO is a Game App that takes up almost 3Gigs and it’s best to keep 5Gigs of free ROM) …. or outdated OS (ie if your Android device is running an OS older than 9.0? you’re going to lose support from Google Play Store). Amazon Kindle’s latest 0S is Fire OS , so make sure you keep that updated (a neighbour was stuck on Fire OS 5 and wondering why his Kindle is crapping out – self-explanatory, his Kindle was no longer updating it’s OS).

          I hate to see Tappers leaving the Game App due to their device.

          1. My phone is 6 GB ram and 64 GB rom – the Kindle was just lying around, bought for the Mrs ages ago but she’s not one for tech.
            I just figured it’d cope with me starting a second town, at least for a while, and it has up to now.

  4. I’m already done with the event! LOL it was fun and I put the new additions with my Bartapalooza area it looks good!

  5. I placed spiros and stolen bicycle graveyard in storage. I placed ball of death in my swapmeet area.
