Super Safi’s Saturday Stats & Strategy Special: Springfield Downs

Salutations Senors, Senoras, Senoritas, Statisticians & Strategists,

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter ‘S’)

 

Hi, I’m Super Safi and you may remember me from such stats and strategy posts as KEM Farming and the advanced losing-to-win Superheroes battle strategy.

After a stressful week of work or school, the weekend is finally here. And what better way to spend the weekend than talking math. So every few Saturday’s, I’ll come to you with a post that delves into the wonderful world of numbers, stats, and/or strategies.

 

This week we look at Springfield Downs.

Where Did THAT Come From – L.T. Smash & Party Posse Stuff

Safi here, giving Wookiee a hand with these WDTCF. With WDTCF being a staple of TSTO Addicts, I’ll try to keep as true to the format as possible (by which I mean I’ll copy and paste one of Wookiee’s posts and just change the necessary info). Hope I make the Wookster proud. Enjoy:

 

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

 

To quote NSync and Backstreet Boys: ‘Here We Go’, ‘It’s Gonna Be Me’ doing the WDTCF again with ‘No Strings Attached’. I’m going to give ‘All I Have to Give’ as ‘Everybody’ in this episode is ‘Larger than Life’.

It’s time for one of my favorite parts of being a reader here at this amazing site. That’s right… new stuff for us to talk about just WHERE it all comes from in the Best. Show. Ever. I’m always a fan of new things even though a lot of the coolest things cost precious sprinklies. The 2017 Homerpalooza Event started with a bang (literally with a free cannon) and then went full Rock, and then Pop. And when you think of Pop, you have to think of the King of Pop, none other than the late great Michael Jackson. It’s my privilege to get to writing about the origins for The Simpsons version of MJ on behalf of Wookiee. It’s always a pleasure to re-watch episodes of the Best. Show. Ever. For this round of origins, we’ll be taking a look at L.T. Smash, Classified Records, the Party Posse, the concert lights, and the Stage Turret:

It’s “Insane in the membrane, Insane in the brain!” time here in all of our tiny tappable towns and this sane (my mother had me tested) Super Safi could not be more thrilled.

Songs in the Key of Springfield: Homerpalooza Edition

Monseiurs, Madames, Mademoiselles & Music Maestros,

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “M”)

As Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “Without music, life would be a mistake”. Well the launch of Homerpalooza has finally brought a musical event to our games and erased a potential ‘mistake’ as Nietzsche called it.

A big part of the Homerpalooza event are the Jam Sessions. But did you notice what songs your characters are jamming to on the Rock stage, Pop stage, and Hip Hop stage?

While the song that plays while you jam makes no difference, I’m sure some of you are curious to know what our characters are jamming to. Can you guess which song they are parodying?

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Character – A Retrospective!

Hey Tappers!

After a summer that saw 73 characters (64 including 8 combos) not yet in our games battle it out in 10 weeks of vigorous head-to-head matchups, we crowned the winner of the very first Bracket Battle on August 19th 2016 in this post here.

However, over the past year, we have seen many of those 64 characters enter our towns. So let’s take a look back and see just how much the game has changed over the past year.

Let’s start by taking a look back at the final Bracket:
