Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A new element added to our games for Bart Royale is a Defensive Bonus.  Simply explained, it’s an extra bonus of Prize Track currency awarded at any of the bases (playscape/junk/ruffian) when you place items (that award a Defensive Bonus) in the “zone” around the base.

Bart Royale Act 2 is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that Act 2 of the Bart Royale/Homergeddon Event…Ends TOMORROW February 20th at 0800 GMT (3am ET).

Once the Act 2 is over you will no longer be able to earn Cola Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning Cola 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.

Be ready for the Act 3 to start bright and early at 0800 GMT (3am ET) tomorrow morning  (February 20th)….

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…..

Still no new Simpsons this week…we’re on a long hiatus from our favorite yellow family.  How managing the Simpson withdrawals?

Act 2 of Bart Royale ends this week, how have you fared with the prize track?

Tip to Start Act 3 of Bart Royale

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick reminder, we talk about this all the time, starting TOMORROW (Sunday) SAVE YOUR DAILY CHALLENGES! (provided you’ve finished the Act 2 prize track)  This will allow you to start Act 3 ahead of the game.  So SAVE THOSE CHALLENGES!

The reason you start saving them tomorrow (Sunday) is because you can only have 3 at a time at most.  Saving tomorrow and Monday is two Daily Challenges and then when Act 3 hits on Tuesday you’ll get a 3rd.  This easily allows you to start Act 3 3,000+ event currency ahead.
