From the Mouths of Addicts: More Event Ideas

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  We’ve got a post from longtime Addict, Happy Tapper! 

Happy Tapper used the downtime with the latest mini-event to focus on what we could see for the next major event.  And even give EA an idea or two about what to put out in the future.  

Enjoy it my friends!  Here’s Happy Tapper… -Alissa 

Hello, fellow tappers!

You may remember me from such posts as “Future TSTO Events” and “The Main Event Contest” or the annoying optimistic guy in the comments.

If I have got EAs attention and haven’t got it for much longer, I would like to quickly say …

I would love to see more interaction in the game, some more ways to make the game live up to its “strategy” title: more neighbour interaction in events, easter eggs to earn a donut or two, little clues/riddles to get to a prize, a Choose your Own Adventure type update where there are multiple routes to the dialogue.

I would just like to see some more experimenting with making events more than just popping into my town every 4 hours, tappa tappa tappa and then leaving.

The Simpsons is still full of content, from the classic to the modern, so in this post I wanted to break down some ideas that I’ve enjoyed designing, including possible content, a questline idea and maybe a way for it to break the 3 act formula. I hope you enjoy … Continue reading

Should I Spend Donuts on Guitar Central, 7,200 Ounce Squishee, Welcome Bob Sign, Woodstock Casino, Duff Party Bus, Stack of Beer or Duff Beer Truck?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Hope you’ve got your dancing shoes on and your cell phones ready to light up the night because Homerpalooza has arrived in Springfield!  That’s right the rock fest has begun!  Our stores are now jam-packed with premium items just tempting us to drop our sprinkles on!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Guitar Central, 7,200 Ounce Squishee, Welcome Bob Sign, Woodstock Casino, Duff Party Bus, Stack of Beer or Duff Beer Truck to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post comes to us from one of our frequent commenters, Robobot!

Robobot asked if he could write another post for us, so I said sure..come up with your own idea, give us your opinions on and and we’ll see what happens!  Well he came up with a list of his ideas for future Events in TSTO! 

Love em or hate em, Events seem to be popup rapid fire these days…and everyone has their own opinion about them.  And here’s Robobot’s thoughts about what the future could bring for Events in TSTO…

Merry Christmas!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Christmas!  It’s Christmas! Santa’s here!!! Woo-hoo!!!

You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always find the latest on the Christmas Update here), as the Addicts celebrate Christmas by tearing open packages, over indulging on Christmas cookies…oh and I guess spending time with our families too! 😉

Short Story Long… We are pre-occupied today and hope YOU are too. I think all of us need a day to step away and just relax, unwind, and enjoy those around us. So you won’t see much going on here. Your comments will sit in moderation. Pretty much it is going to be a quiet day on the Addicts sites while we….BRACE YOURSELVES…take a day off. SHOCKING I KNOW!!!

No worries, we promise all won’t be lost in a day. We always have our eyes and ears open. Even if you do not see or hear from us, does not mean we aren’t watching out for you. We will return after the holiday with any changes and more info about the Christmas Event.  So for today….ENJOY THE SILENCE!

Well that’s it from us.  But we want to take a moment to wish you and your families a VERY Merry Christmas!  Have a great day everyone and be safe!

Merry Christmas from the Addicts

Now feel free to share your own thoughts and memories in the comments below. You know we LOVE to hear from you and it will be something great to come back to after the Holiday. So feel free to comment away. 😉

P.S. If you want to see how Riley (aka the Tiny Addict) spent Christmas Eve and today..check out instagram. 🙂

Ultimate Pi Day (Contest Alert)

Have you checked out the date today?!  Today just so happens to be 3-14 or in the  world of Geeks, Pi Day. As 3.14 is the short short short version for the symbol Pi. (Click here for more info on Pi.) Not to mention one of the Geeks of ALL Geeks, Albert Einstein, just so happens to have his birthday fall on 3-14. Seriously! It is quite a celebrated day. The College Kids at Princeton REALLY get into it each year. Just check this out.

As if Pi Day wasn’t enough.. today is ULTIMATE Pi Day…go ahead start geeking out!  Just what is Ultimate Pi Day?  At exactly 9:26:53 am this morning it will be 3.141592653 the EXACT starting sequence of Pi…AND for a brief moment between 9:26:53 am and 9:26:54 am that the clock will match Pi down to an infinite number of digits…pretty cool huh?  Enjoy it while it lasts, because it won’t happen again for another century!

So just why are we sharing all of this with you?  Because when we think of Pi Day…we think of PIE!!  So in honor of all the geeky nerds, nerdy geeks, and all in between…WE ARE GIVING AWAY PIE. WOOHOO!! Mmmmmmmmm PIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEE!
