TSTO In-Game Update: 10 Year Anniversary Celebration (and the Golden Donut)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Some of you may have noticed something a little different when you logged into TSTO this afternoon…a special 10th Anniversary celebration!

Here at Addicts we celebrated the 10th Anniversary of TSTO a few months ago, as we went off the original App Store launch day…but today EA’s celebrating the 10th anniversary of the re-released of TSTO to the app store.  This makes sense, because originally it was only in the store for a hot minute.  BUT…let’s all be thrilled EA remembered and they’re celebrating it!

Anyway…when you log into your game you’ll get some fun and an even neater decoration. Let’s break it down…

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 or current Tapped Out event) 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…..

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Best Splash Screen, Week 11

It was seven years ago, just after the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs bracket was complete that I thought it might be cool to do a The Simpsons Tapped Out bracket. Here we are seven years later, and it’s time for our eighth TSTO Addicts Bracket Battle!

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. It is equally debatable how long The Simpsons will keep going. But what isn’t debatable is that there have been A LOT of amazing splash screens in Tapped Out. 63 in fact. before this Bracket Battle begins, with the 64th releasing pretty soon. But which of the splash screens has truly been the best? With that in mind, we present to you TSTO Addicts’ The Best Splash Screen Bracket Battle.
