Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments!

When we can, we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

Hey Addicts… Caption This!

This Caption This! image is brought to us by koolviruz

So go ahead and caption away!

If you’ve got an image you’d like to submit for a “Caption this!” post, email it to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com you never know when yours might be next!

Springfield Showoff: All American Auction

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we sometimes find ourselves forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU.

So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in-game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small and brag about it to the world. We want you to! Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

All American Auction (Thanksgiving 2019) Prize Guide: Paul Bunyan

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Nothing like the holidays to bring a little crazy to our pocket-sized towns!  As the latest mini-event in TSTO hit our towns recently…this time to celebrate Thanksgiving.  Or more specifically Black Friday! At least this one is seasonally appropriate…and should bring us nicely into Christmas! (Almost Tinsel Time! 🎄🎄🎄 )

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the All American Auction questline, you’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

So let’s take a look at the final All American Auction Prize…Paul Bunyan…

All American Auction (Thanksgiving 2019) Premium Questline: CJ Pro Bidder

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Nothing like the holidays to bring a little crazy to our pocket-sized towns!  As the latest mini-event in TSTO hit our towns recently…this time to celebrate Thanksgiving.  Or more specifically Black Friday! At least this one is seasonally appropriate…and should bring us nicely into Christmas!

Of course, as with all events, a questline comes with it to help move us through the ins and outs of the event…and unlock all of the prizes.  As was mentioned on the rundown post this mini-event is your typical standard mini-event (with a couple of twists).  Follow the questline to unlock prizes and call it a day…until the next event.

With this mini-event, one new premium character was introduced. In addition to helping with event currency, CJ Pro Bidder comes with his own, short, individual questline, so let’s take a look at the full dialogue questline now.

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…..

Simpsons are back tonight with a new episode! What do you think will happen in the latest episode?

The homestretch of the All American Auction mini-event, have you finished the prize track yet?  Purchased any items you were looking to get?

It’s officially December and that means it’s officially time to go crazy with Christmas!  Fingers crossed we’ll see snow in Springfield this Wednesday…thoughts on what we may see as the winter wonderland approaches our towns?

How’s your designing coming?  What are you doing with your town? Share some photos in the comments below! (If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post)  Don’t forget to submit your All American Auction/Thanksgiving/Black Friday designs to Showoff!

And finally, how was 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!

The Sounds of TSTO: All American Auction and Black Friday 2019

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Your senses can evoke powerful memories in you. The smell of saltwater can trigger you back to your youth spent at the beach, the touch of cotton can bring you back to memories of your mom, and hearing sounds of TSTO can bring back countless hours spent tap, tap, tapping away.

So let’s take a trip down memory lane via the sound effects of TSTO…

Happy Turkey Day!

Hey Howdy Hey Turkey Tappers!

It’s finally Turkey Day here in the US…the latest date it could possibly be!  It really feels like it took forever to get here this year.  And you know what that means…Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Apple and Pumpkin pie, football, stretchy pants, and insane sales at the mall!

You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always check out the details of the Thanksgiving (All American Auction) Mini Event here, the Black Friday Cash items here, the mystery boxes here, and the Gold box here as we take the day to celebrate the holiday with our families.  Although…..Super Safi will likely be lurking around the comments, as Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving last month.  So like a lot of you, Safi will be working today too!

However, we couldn’t let a day dedicated to being thankful go by without a special THANK YOU to YOU…our AMAZING readers!  We are so thankful for each and every one of you that take the time to read our posts and comment.  So from Patric, Wookiee, Safi and myself…THANK YOU!!  You guys rock and we couldn’t do this without you!

Here at Addicts, we’ve all been blessed in so many ways and we hope you have too! In that spirit, we’d like to invite you to take a moment and let us know in the comments below what you’re thankful for this Thanksgiving! We can’t wait to see what you say!

Happy Thanksgiving Tappers (whether you celebrate or not, we all celebrate through TSTO)!

PS Look for a special Black Friday Sale in the Addicts Shop to launch tonight!
