TSTO Character Profile: Larry Kidkill

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So with all this downtime, I’m finally getting the chance to cover some things I didn’t have a chance to do originally (or I simply forgot about).  This time around I’m circling back to the Moe’s Ark update and covering Larry Kidkill’s tasks.

Larry originally arrived as a free character, via the questline, during the Moe’s Ark event (last summer).  And because he was awarded via the questline and not the prize track, I never went back around to cover his task list and other details about him.

So here’s a look at the details behind Larry, Springfield Zoo’s villainous owner…

TSTO Character Profile: Aristotle Amadopolis

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So The Marge at the Bat update gives me an opportunity to do something I didn’t do last year, and that’s cover Aristotle Amadopolis’ tasks.

Aristotle originally arrived as a free character, via the questline, during The Springfield Jobs event (last Spring).  And because he was awarded via the questline and not the prize track, I never went back around to cover his task list and other details about him.

So Aristotle’s arrival in Springfield once again with the Marge at the Bat update gives me a chance to circle back.  So the update is good for something I suppose. 😉

So here’s a look at the details behind Aristotle, Shelbyville’s Nuclear Power Plant Owner…

TSTO Playable Characters and Costumes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

While we’ve got a little bit of downtime I thought I’d work on something players have been asking me to update for a while now…the list of playable characters in TSTO.

We’ve got a list here, but I’ve been terrible at updating it. (Last update was Sept of 2016…🤦‍♀️) We also have a full list of character costumes here, but that also hasn’t been updated since Sept 2016.  So now I’ve updated both lists through the Classless Reunion Mini-Event, so this is up to date as of, today, March 28th, 2019.  And hopefully I’ll remember to update the lists with each event…although if someone wouldn’t mind reminding me to do it that would be tremendously helpful.  (I’ve got a lot on my plate and mind, I’m always forgetting to update stuff…🤹‍♀️). 

And yes, I plan on updating both of those linked lists here shortly.  

And now without further ado…the character lists…

Yearbook Mystery Box

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Wowsers the latest mini-event to hit Springfield brought us the ultimate Mystery Box!  With over 700 items (737 at my count), the Yearbook Mystery Box is the largest single Mystery Box to ever hit our pocket-sized towns.

This isn’t your ordinary Mystery Box.  No, this is a premium box full of almost every limited-time (and not so limited-time) premium item and prize to ever hit Springfield.  It’s pretty insane.

Because this box is different than a standard Mystery Box I’m going to treat this post different than the standard Mystery Box post.  For starters, this is going up shortly after the event hit our games because I know this is the info you’re all really wanted to know.  And I’m going to breakdown what’s inside, as well as give you some tips to get what you really want in Springfield.  So let’s take a look…
