The Sounds of TSTO: Clash of Creeds (Christmas 2020)

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…

Springfield Showoff: Clash of Creeds/Christmas 2020

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”.

Christmas 2020 Premium Questline: Yahweh and Andre

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In our games, the snow is falling and TSTO is calling yoo hoo!  It’s the most wonderful time of the year Tappers, Christmas in TSTO!  This year is no exception with the 2020 Clash of Creeds Event!

Act 4 of this Event ushered in two new premium characters.  One to help with the event, and the other as part of a Gil “deal”.

So let’s take a look at Yahweh and Andre’s questlines.  Here’s the full dialogue for The Mid-Life Tribulation and Heaven Forbidden…

The End is Near for Clash of Creeds…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Clash of Creeds Event Ends TOMORROW January 13th. 

Now that we’re 2 weeks into the New Year it’s time for the holidays to officially end…

As far as questlines go, what’s happened in the past is that the current prize you’re working on (on any questline) you were able to finish.  Once that current prize was completed then the questline disappeared.

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.

And Now for Something Completely Different…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Let’s face it, there’s a lot of craziness going on in the world.  I know it can be hard to keep your sanity with all the dumpster fires burning around you!  I’ve tried my darnedest, throughout the last 7+ years, to keep this site a safe haven from the craziness.  This is your internet escape from all the chaos.  And, at the same time, it’s my escape from it as well.

I’m always thinking about how can we spread more happiness and smiles to the Addicts Community, beyond of course the Saturday smiles from Addicts Live.  So I thought a lot about what’s made me happy and kept me sane and smiling over the years.  In particular throughout all the COVID craziness.  And the answer is, my kids.  My kiddos have kept me laughing and smiling, even when it felt like there was nothing to laugh or smile about.  They’ve always found a way to say something funny, ask me to do a silly experiment, or just share some giggles with each other.

So, on that note…I’ve decided to start doing some Vlogging, the Little Addicts Adventures!   Some videos where we just have some fun, and hopefully make you laugh and smile!  Not sure how regular they’ll be.  Right now I’m aiming for 1 a week, depending on the feedback we may bump it up to more.

Of course, this doesn’t mean TSTO content is going by the wayside.  This site will still be the same place it’s always been, and if you don’t want to laugh or smile…well there are plenty of other posts you can click on.  And we’ll still do regular Addicts Live episodes, as well as some other TSTO pop in videos.  The Little Addicts Adventures is really just an add-on for those who want more than just Saturday Smiles.

And without further ado, I’ll shut up now and present you with the very first Little Addicts Adventures…
