Should You Buy Libido?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Spending actual cash on donuts for a character is back in TSTO.  This is something EA’s been rolling out over the last few years, and it’s a new bonus for actually spending cash on donuts. (instead of just farming them)  Where they attach a premium, limited-time, character to one of the donut bundles sometimes in addition to bonus donuts.

This time around we’re being offered Libido,  a premium character, for a tray of 132 Donuts ($9.99 in the US)..no bonus this time around.  While it’s hard for me to sit here and tell you if you should or shouldn’t spend actual cash on the game (spoiler, I think you should always spend at least a small amount…even if it’s $.99/year on the game if it brings you joy and you want to see it continue) I thought I’d do a quick breakdown of Libido, tasks, questline and other details you may be curious about.

So let’s consider this an abbreviated Should I Buy….

Twas The Night Before….

Ho Ho Ho Tappers!

Merry Christmas Eve! Every year on Christmas Eve I love sharing a special story with y’all.  It’s become one of my favorite Addicts traditions!  The annual reading of a classic tale.  You know….

Twas the Night Before Christmas
And all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even an….

ADDICT!

Oh you thought we were going to tell THAT version?  Nope you thought wrong!

You see every year right around Christmas Eve we like to tell the TSTO version of the Tale….Twas the Night before Grumplemas!  Nothing like a nice little story to keep Christmas Eve nice and light while we wait for Santa! 🙂

(remember, you can track Santa via the NORAD Santa Tracker App…https://www.noradsanta.org/…this is one of our favorite things to do with the little Addicts each year!)

Enjoy my friends!

Should You Buy Donut Homer?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, spending actual cash on donuts for a character is back in TSTO, well it’s a costume this time.  This is something EA’s been rolling out over the last few years, and it’s a new bonus for actually spending cash on donuts. (instead of just farming them)  Where they attach a premium, limited-time, character to one of the donut bundles in addition to bonus donuts.

This time around we’re being offered Donut Homer,  a premium costume (NOT a character), for a tray of 132 Donuts ($9.99 in the US)..no bonus this time around.  While it’s hard for me to sit here and tell you if you should or shouldn’t spend actual cash on the game (spoiler, I think you should always spend at least a small amount…even if it’s $.99/year on the game if it brings you joy and you want to see it continue) I thought I’d do a quick breakdown of Donut Homer, his tasks, questline and other details you may be curious about.

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Real Life Celebrity, and the winner is…

It was six years ago, just after the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs bracket was complete that I thought it might be cool to do a The Simpsons Tapped Out bracket. Here we are in the oddest of NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs of all times due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and it’s time for our sixth 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 have been A LOT of incredible guest stars appearing as themselves in the rich history of The Simpsons universe. A rare few of these (like Stephen Hawking and Weird Al) have made their way into our games. However, hundred are still not in our little game. There is so much in fact, that it was hard just to narrow it down to 64 entries to start with. I thought of making the Bracket Battle start with 128 entries, but we’d be battling well into fall. With that in mind, we present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Real Life Celebrity Bracket Battle.
