Halloween Act 1 is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that Act 1 of the Halloween Event…Ends TOMORROW October 17th at 10am ET (1400 GMT)

Once the Act 1 is over you will no longer be able to earn Act 1 Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning animal feed if you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Act starts…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Act. And Pickaxes will Carry Over (Relics do not)

For a rundown on everything that was included with Act 1 check out our rundown post here.

And don’t forget about our Ending Act 1 Tips

Be ready for the Act 2 to start at 1400 GMT (10am ET) tomorrow morning  (October 17th)….

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…..

Last week for Act 1 of the 2018 THOH event in Springfield, how are you doing with the Act 1 prize track?  How far have you progressed?  Will you be saving your daily challenges (starting Monday) to start Act 2?

The Simpsons are all new tonight, what are your thoughts on Season 30 so far?  (3 episodes in)

And finally, how about the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

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!

Halloween 2018 How-To: Act 1 Crafting

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah the Crafting post….where I give you the how-to and break down each and every item available to craft, so you don’t miss a thing!

Love it or hate it, EA has proven over the last couple of years that crafting is here to stay.  While the prizes themselves are pretty self-explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”.  Crafting requires some self-direction.  You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly.  Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not. And, as with all things, for some events crafting is easier than others.

While we thought they finally did away with crafting after the last event, Moe’s Ark, it’s back and the same as always for THOH.  Now I know some of you still have questions so, let’s take a look…

Wondering if you should add the Returning Wailing Wall or Pet Cemetery Combo to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…
