Creative Minds! (Contest Alert)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

You may remember back in the fall of 2016 (so just a couple of months ago) we had a few TSTO themed T-Shirts available for purchase.  This first, a Tapped Out Addicts shirt, was a huge hit but the second, a Keep Springfield Weird shirt, was a swing and a miss. But it was on the Keep Springfield Weird shirt post that several of you thought it might be a fun idea for y’all to design the next t-shirt Slogan….

So that’s exactly what we’re doing!  So get those creative juices flowing because it’s time for a Creative Minds T-Shirt Slogan contest!  Where your Slogan could be picked for the next Addicts T-Shirt BUT you can ALSO win Donuts!  And Who doesn’t like FREE DONUTS?!

Keep on reading for more (including how to enter, and what you can win)…

Pi Day 2017 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 2017 we hosted a little contest, as is our tradition, where the winner wins…PIE!

So many of you entered and shared with us your favorite Pie…it made me so hungry I searched my house high and low for pie, sadly we were out. Fortunately, one lucky Addicts reader from the US won’t have that problem when they receive their pie sampler prize!

We had 2 winners for this year’s Pi Day contest, one from the US and one from outside of the US.  (due to shipping issues we could only send pie to readers inside the US…) So let’s see who the Randomizer chose….

Main Event Contest: And the Winner Is…..

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

About a month ago we challenged you guys to design the next event in TSTO with our Main Event Contest and WOW did you guys respond!  We were COMPLETELY blown away by your submissions!  We then read each and every one of your entries over and over, trying hard to narrow it down to the finalists.  You guys had such AMAZING ideas and it was nearly impossible to narrow it down, but we finally picked 10 finalists.  Then we left it up to you guys, the AMAZING Addicts Community to vote for your favorite and pick the winner.

Well the votes have been cast and the totals are it…and all we can say is you guys had as hard of a time picking a winner as we did picking the finalists!  It was an insanely close battle!

So enough stalling from me…let’s get to the winners!!

Several weeks ago we challenged you guys to design the next event (whether large or mini) of TSTO with our Main Event Contest and holy smokes did you guys respond big time!  Y’all never fail to amaze us, we were completely blown away by your entries!

Over the past week the Addicts staff (Bunny, Patric, Wookiee and I) have been reading each and every one of your entries, in our effort to narrow down the top 10.   One thing we discovered is you guys have some AMAZING ideas!  It was a real struggle to narrow down the field to just 10 finalists, but we finally all came to an agreement on the Top 10.  Trust me….no easy task!

So with out further ado…let me introduce to you the 10 Finalists for the Main Event Contest…

The Main Event (Contest Alert!)

addicts-logo-new-3

So… it’s a new year and I’m sure I’m not alone in looking forward to what EA has in store for all of us as the months go by. While the future is sure to include episode tie-ins and the obligatory events that drive some of us to madness and/or celebration, I thought it might be fun to resurrect a contest idea we had way back in July 2014. You see, the team here at Addicts decided to give away donuts for creativity and the result was nothing short of amazing. Basically, a lot of people created ideas for the next big thing in the game and boy howdy did the Addicts show up with ideas.

Looking back at that contest, a lot of our ideas became realities in the game. I could toot my own horn and point out my example became Level 48 with Lurleen Lumpkin but just scrolling through the comments, so much made its way into the game.

Here are some highlights: Continue reading
