Game of Games: Week 1 Questlines, Premium Character SmellYaL8r

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Let the games begin!  After a long hiatus, we finally have a major event in Springfield!  Game of Games has arrived and it looks to be a game fest of nerdy proportions!

Game of Games follows the same multi-event structure that Christmas 2018 and Valentine’s Day 2019 followed.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!

With Act 2 (week 2) one new premium costume arrived in Springfield, SmellYaL8r, a new costume of Nelson.  In addition to helping with event currency, SmellYaL8r also came equipped with his own, short, individual questline, so let’s take a look at the full dialogue questline…

Game of Games Week 3 is About to Start

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow morning, Wednesday, June 26th, Week 3 (Act 3) of Game of Games will be starting.  The official start time is 10am ET (1400 GMT).

While the Week 2 (or week 1 for that matter) questline won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Week 3 starts, all of the Week 2 Premium items will be leaving the store.

So if you planned to purchase SmellYaL8R or any of the returning Premium Content, (SIBs linked) do so before they leave our games tomorrow morning.

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Week 3 to start…

During Week 3 Homer is still trying to replace the E4 Passes, and the Evergreen Terrors continue their gaming ways.  BUT things take a weird, yes even weird for TSTO, turn as Act 3 moves along.  You’ll have to follow along with the dialogue to find out what happens, but here are the characters needed for week 3 tasks:

Homer
Lisa
Bart
Milhouse
Martin
Nelson
Lenny
Carl
Sophie Krustofsky (earns regular premium)
New Premium Character Week 3 (Earns Special Premium)

You’ll also need Homer and Mr. Burns free for the initial questline objective…

There will also be one new premium stand-alone Character (at least according to the files it’s a character) introduced during week 3, and that character will be able to help with the currency earning for week 3.  (75 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase the character)

And that’s it my friends!  Be prepared for Week 3 to start up tomorrow morning!

Thoughts on week 2?  Ready for week 3?  Excited to see where the story goes?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Trivia will be back next Saturday, I’ve had a bunch of things going on so I just haven’t been able to sit down and write up trivia questions.  Instead for a little Saturday break from Game of Games, here’s a caption this round up!

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!

Game of Games Week 2 Is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Game of Games Week 2 is Live!

Things kick off for week 2 with some dialogue between Homer and CBG…

Homer: Comic Book Guy, I need tickets to E4. I know you must have some, because you’re so uncool.
CBG: Incredibly rude way to ask for a favor. Still, one of the nicest things anyone has said to me today.
Homer: So can you get me the tickets or not?
CBG: Perhaps. But first, you have to listen to my fresh take on every Marvel movie ever.

This is followed by a 6s task for Homer.  Once completed you’ll trigger the week 2 questline, which will take you through unlocking all of the week 2 prizes, Wild Wild Quest.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during week 2…
