Pi Day 2019 Contest Winners!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

March 14th was Pi Day and here at Addicts and who doesn’t love an excuse for pie?!  So to celebrate Pi Day 2019 we hosted a little contest, to give away some Simpson pie!

Loads of you played along with our Pi Day Trivia contest, where the average score was split between 4/7 and 7/7.  Either you guys really knew your stuff, or my trick questions really tricked you!  The most commonly missed question?  “Homer promises Marge he will stop his pie avenging.” About 60% of you thought this was true, when in fact it is false.  He promises Lisa.

Anyway, onto the winners!  This year we picked 2 winners to win the Krusty LEGO minifig so let’s see who the Randomizer chose….

Have a Little Fun Contest And the Winner Is….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Last week we held a contest sponsored by our friends at Fun.com to celebrate the launch of their new Simpsons Vinyl Collection!  They’ve always been so good to the readers of Addicts, and this time was no exception.  They generously offered to give one lucky Addicts reader one of their new vinyls, but that wasn’t all!  When they found out we were celebrating our 5 year blogiversary they upped the prize to include on of their exclusive Simpsons Halloween costumes!

Well let’s see who that lucky reader is…

Addicts Want to Know: 2017 Year in Review Poll + Contest Alert!

The contest is now closed.  The winner of the Ralphie figurine is Robert!  Congratulations & thanks everyone for participating! 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well we’re nearing the end of 2017.  Another year in the books and another year full of events in TSTO.  As we prepare to head into 2018, we’re planning on doing a very special Addicts Live for the end of the year.  This will be pre-recorded, so nothing to tune in live for.  That episode will feature a discussion about 2017 in TSTO.  We’ll talk about the events, share our opinions about each event & we hope to include your opinions as well!

So in preparation for that episode, I’ve prepared a Addicts Poll…a place for you to break down just the events of 2017.  This way we can keep Addicts Live interactive, despite being pre-recorded.

Please, take a moment to answer the poll questions below & as a reward you’ll be entered in a very special contest!  (more details on that below)

For those having trouble viewing the form embedded here, follow the direct link here

Please Note: In the past, I’ve had issues with people responding to their email when they’ve won a contest.  So for this contest, because of time constraints (I want to get this in the mail by Thursday), I ask you (if you want to enter the contest) to enter your Mailing Address for Shipping right in the entry form.  In order to be a valid entry for the contest, your address must be entered.  If you don’t want to enter the contest, leave that area blank.   

And now CONTEST ALERT…

Share Your Thoughts on a Monday…and a Contest Alert

Contest is Now Closed.  But feel free to still share your thoughts in the comments.  Winners have been selected and I’ll have a post up once I confirm with the winners to announce them.  (So check your emails)  Thanks! 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So Homerpalooza is nearing the end, remember it ends tomorrow, and we’re all gearing up for the “next big thing” in our Pocket-sized Springfields. But before something new hits I want all of us to take a step back and think about TSTO in general.

The last few weeks I’ve been seeing LOADS of comments from you guys about why this event was both good and bad and many of you have been commenting that TSTO isn’t holding your interest lately.  And you’ve heard our thoughts on the subject in many posts and most recently on our latest episode of Addicts Live.

So now it’s your turn.  What I want to know is what you think could be different for events in TSTO.  What could EA change that would make you really excited to play?  What would hold your interest?  What would keep you engaged? What type of events would you like to see?

And now CONTEST ALERT…
