Should I Spend Donuts On The Screens?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Grab your Santa hats and break out the tinsel because it’s Christmas time in Springfield! Yes the annual TSTO Christmas event has arrived in our pocket-sized towns, covering our usual perfect weather towns with a fresh blanket of bright, white, snow!   Of course, by now, we all know that a new event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with limited-time premium items to tempt us.

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us 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 The Screens to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this festive movie theatre to your town…

Springfield Showoff: Halloween and Thanksgiving 2018

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 find ourselves sometimes 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. 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”.

Thanksgiving 2018 Prize Breakdown: Buildings and Decorations

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

No matter where you live, it’s still Thanksgiving in Springfield! As the Thanksgiving mini-event nears the end, it’s time to break down the prizes.  Since the Thanksgiving mini-event is always full of a TON of content (Black Friday sales especially), I thought this year I’d break the prize breakdowns into two posts.  One, this one, for the buildings and decorations and another, running later today, for Minnie and the animation.

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the Blood is Thinner Than Gravy questline, you’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

So let’s take a look at the building and decoration prizes…

Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Orb of Isis or the Sphinx?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Halloween is back in Springfield!  Yes, the water is murky, the screen is slightly darker, monsters and minions are roaming our towns…is there anything better than Halloween in our pocket-sized towns?  Of course loads of returning content! Lots of items to drop those sprinkles on…

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us 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.

TSTO Treehouse of Horror XXIX – Act 3 Prize Guide – Grand Pyramid

This is one of those items that kinda gets lost in the issues that the TSTO programmers have with proper scale. Let’s face it…as cool as a “Grand Pyramid” is by name, it’s really more of a “kinda nice, but smallish Pyramid.”  I mean, it’s the same size as the Bazaar we just won! (10×10).

It does take you back to loads of other questions though…mostly about aliens.

I know. I’m not really much of  conspiracy theory kinda guy. But the whole question of Pyramid structures popping up all over the world at around the same time just seems suspect.  They all required amazing feats of engineering and loads of slave labor to pull off. In fact, I think modern man, even with all of our tools and resources would have a tough time duplicating something with such precision. It just feels like aliens had a hand. But, I digress…

Let’s take a look at the “less-than grand” Grand Pyramid in our games!

Remember…this is an automatic change in your game.  Nothing to download, it should just start up in your game..

Act 3 runs until November 14th (when the event ends)
