TSTO Musings About Multi-Events

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Another TSTO Thursday and as usual I have some thoughts for you.  This time I’m musing about…multi-events. With the latest update hitting our games I thought it was time to weigh in with my thoughts on the infamous new event format.  And of course, I’ve got a bunch of thoughts so let’s get to ‘em…

Game of Games: Turbo Tappin’ Week 1, E4 No Access Pass

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!

The Game of Games follows the same event structure that the Simpsons Christmas Special and Valentine’s Day events before it.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!

For Act 1 we’re tasked with finding passes for E4!  Each part of the story will unlock another prize themed for the first part of the story.  So let’s take a look at the details behind Week 1 and the Turbo Tappin’ Version for E4 No Access Pass…

Game of Games Week 1 Is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

After 4 months we FINALLY have a new “major” event available in TSTO.  I say  “major” because it’s not a mini-event, but it’s not your typical main event either.  We’re back to multi-events for this one.  So love them, or hate them, they’re here to stay at least (likely) through the end of the year.

You can find overall spoilers about the event here, direct from EA. This event is a spoof on E3, which happened yesterday.  ICYMI you can check out The Simpsons Panel at E3 last night here

Anywho….things kick off with 6s tasks for Homer, Lisa, and Bart.  That first round is followed by another round of 6s tasks for Lisa and Bart. This then kicks off the Game of Games Multi-Event!

**For part 1 you’ll need to send Bart on a 4hr task and collect 200 VIP passes.  To collect passes you can send: Bart, Lisa, Homer, Marge, Milhouse, Nelson, Martin, Ralph, Sophie, and Blocko Angelica Button (new premium character)**

As always, I’m going to continue to update this post as I run through things so keep checking back…It’s been a while since a large event hit, we’re a bit rusty around here 😉

Simpsons Panel At E3…A Recap

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy Update Day!  ICYMI…and I don’t know how you could have I wrote a bunch of posts about it last night…an all-new update for TSTO hit our games last night.  If you haven’t already done so, go download it from the App Store now.  And if you want to see them, you can check out Spoilers here.

But this post isn’t about the new update.  This post is a recap of what happened last night during the E3 Expo, and the Simpsons panel.  If you didn’t get a chance to watch the hour-long panel I’ve embedded the YouTube video from it below, and I’ll highlight some areas for those who don’t have the time to watch the hour-long panel now.

Update: Spoilers packet just came in from EA, so I’ll have a spoilers post up soon.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A major event update has FINALLY hit the servers!  Game of Games is available for download in the app store…

Yes, I’m a little late for this one… I guess that’s what happens when you’re spending quality time with your kiddos before bed..

I’m going to start pulling info for this one…but just because the app update is available does not mean the game is live yet.  The update itself doesn’t go live until TOMORROW (Wednesday, June 12th) at 1400 UTC/10 AM Eastern Time. 

Heaven help us if this is another Bart Royale event…I may lose my mind…

Here are the characters you can expect… Continue reading

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…..

ICYMI, we’re having a TSTO Addicts Tag-A-Thon contest!  A few rounds have already been closed, but check out the two that are still open here to participate! (Police Station and Town Hall)

We’re still waiting to see what happens in TSTO, but the E3 Expo is this Tuesday (June 11th).  So we’ll see what happens then.

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)  

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!
