Addicts Open Thread

Time To Talk Through Tumultuous Troubles, Terrible Turmoils, Terrific Tidings & Tappers Telling Tales

(This week’s thread is sponsored by the letter ‘T’)

 

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  With another Tiny Addict having just arrived, I’m going to help the Mother of Addicts, the Queen of the Tappers, the Protector of Six Events, the Great Aleesi (Alissa) with these Open Threads for the coming period.

Addicts Open Thread is a staple of this site that dates back to January 2014.  Only 10 of us readers (myself included) commented on that first open thread way back then, and here we are nearly half a decade later and tens of thousands of comments later.

The Addicts Open Thread is where this site truly becomes a community, where we can talk about anything we 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 you desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

Moe’s Ark is coming to an end, how have you fared with the prize track?  Taking in our tips for progressing through Act 3?  But Moe’s Ark isn’t the only thing happening. Have you checked out the Rosh Hashanah items?

ICYMI…the Bracket Battle winner was announced.  You can check it out here.  How long til the Addict’s most desired character skin joins our game?

And finally, how about the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?  How was your past week?  Any plans for the upcoming week?

So chat about The Simpsons, TSTO, TSTO Addicts, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  We can’t wait to chat with you all, as you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Super Safi’s Silly Simpsons Study Stint!

Over the past 5 years, both as a frequent site commenter and more recently as a Site Addict, I’ve often referenced an essay I wrote during first year of University. So today, I present said essay.

However, please bear in mind that up until first year University, all of my education was in French, so English grammar was not (and is still not) my forte.

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Skin and the Winner is…

It was four years ago, just after the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs bracket was complete and I was filling out my bracket for the 2014 FIFA World Cup that I thought it might be cool to do a The Simpsons Tapped Out bracket. Here we are at the next World Cup and it’s time for our fourth TSTO Addicts Bracket Battle!

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there are plenty of character skins in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. We present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Skin Bracket Battle.
