Springfield Showoff: Showbiz Showdown

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 sometimes find ourselves 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. From 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, and 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”.

Dog Days Building Tasks

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Now that the Dog Days Event is over, it can be a bit overwhelming to take a look at the prize haul and figure out just what to do with everything.  With an event that ran 5 weeks (almost), it can be hard to remember what arrived with week 1 and want it did.  It can also be hard just remembering what the heck came with this event.

While I break down each item individually and include character tasks there, if there are any, it can be difficult to remember just who goes where.  So I’ve compiled one list of all the character tasks associated with a building.  Now you’ve got one place to go back and look to see which character animates which building from the Dog Days Event.

So let’s take a look…

So let’s take a trip down memory lane via the sound effects of TSTO…

The End is Near for Dog Days…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Dog Days Event Ends TOMORROW July 20th.

It’s time to for the dogs to disappear and for something new to arrive in Springfield!

As far as questlines go, what’s happened in the past is that the current prize you’re working on (on any Act questline) you were able to finish.  Once that current prize was completed then the questline disappeared.

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.

Should You Buy McGriff the Crime Dog?

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/costume/building/decoration/combo to one of the donut bundles sometimes in addition to bonus donuts.

And I want to be perfectly clear…you do not need to buy these characters to complete an event.  You can still play this game, and complete all the tasks and prizes, 100% free.  These cash-for-character items are a new type of premium currency…because donuts have been so devalued with donut farming.

This time around we’re being offered McGriff the Crime Dog,  a premium character, for a tray of 132 Donuts ($9.99 in the US)..no bonus this time.  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 McGriff the Crime Dog, his tasks, questline and other details you may be curious about.

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