From the Mouths of Addicts: Task Master Quiz

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post is a little different as it’s a quiz and not really a post.

Last week Addicts Reader cityscaper emailed us a pretty awesome quiz that they came up with as a way to break up the TSTO lull we all seem to be experiencing.  I thought it was fun and something different to do while we all waited for “the next big thing” to him our games.

So have a little fun and enjoy this Task Master quiz from cityscaper!

And don’t forget to share your results in the comments below!

(If you’re having trouble with the form here you can view the direct link to it here)

Thanks again cityscaper for putting together something fun to do in the TSTO lull!  As always we love hearing from you guys… if you have an opinion or take on something going on in the game (or something that should be going on in the game), please send it along to us TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com…

A Balanced Tapper’s Life…And the Rewards are FREE!

BookOffer-Main

Let’s be honest…you can only spend so much time each day Tapping, even during a major update! As many of us have discovered, even in the most frantic of update periods (when one first hits) the real secret to “Getting It All” runs in fairly obvious 4-Hour Cycles. This has been the case for the last 4 major updates, and in some ways have made it possible to “Get It All” without having to “Tap It All the Time.”

We have been able to maximize our ROT (Return On Tapping) by doing the math of the calendar events, and then be able to divide out the Tapping Time for the best ROT.  Tapping every four hours leaves a lot of time for doing other things outside of the Padular World of TSTO.

With a NEW UPDATE Rumored to hit very soon, it begs the question, What Do YOU Do Outside of Your TSTOTapping Time (TTT)?

I have written about this before, but the fact is, there is never a better time than right now to start “Living Wide” as it pertains to your daily Tapping Rituals.

Here are some of the things I do, when I am not tapping (and no…please no double-entendres on the word “tapping”).

Does Superstition Run Your Springfield?

OCD-Main

Maybe it’s the sports guy in me…or maybe I’m just nuts.  But, like it or not, I have fallen into some patterns that started out as “funny little quirks” to keep me from getting bored with the game, and have turned into full-blown “I’m afraid NOT to do it now” patterns that could be labeled compulsive, superstitious behavior.

Like I said. I might be nuts.

But, the fact is, I need Grandpa to keep feeding the black hole to keep my Springfield safe. And now…I need Mona by his side, and Sherry Bobbins in the energy field!! If I don’t, I am not sure that my day in Springfield is going to turn out OK.

It’s not all as crazy as it seems. Really. No. Really…

Let me explain…

From the Mouths of Addicts: Future TSTO Events

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post comes to us from one of our frequent commenters, Robobot!

Robobot asked if he could write another post for us, so I said sure..come up with your own idea, give us your opinions on and and we’ll see what happens!  Well he came up with a list of his ideas for future Events in TSTO! 

Love em or hate em, Events seem to be popup rapid fire these days…and everyone has their own opinion about them.  And here’s Robobot’s thoughts about what the future could bring for Events in TSTO…

From the Mouths of Addicts: Brooders Guide to TSTO Events

ATTENTION: For those who don’t like to actually read the words in the post but skim for keywords (like update) and then freak out thinking something is going on.  If you actually bother to read the post, it’s satire.  THERE IS NO NEW EVENT right now! (or update or anything)  (which is why it doesn’t have update in the title.)  

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post comes to us from a frequent commenter, lover of all things NPC and regular at the Addicts pub of life, Brooders!

Brooders, Big Phil and I were having a conversation just this morning over on TOuk about my upcoming vacation (last week of June), and how I hope Bunny’s well enough to cover Addicts for the week…otherwise I’ll either have an unhappy husband or unhappy readers.

At the encouragement of Big Phil, Brooders was more than happy to throw her name into the ring to run the site in my absence (just in case).  What you find below is her “audition” so to speak, and how she’d handle things if I were away for a week.

Hope you enjoy it, because I know I couldn’t stop laughing…

Note I’m not really looking for someone to run the site while I’m gone.  It was just a joke that turned into this hilarious post..

Take it away Brooders…and try not to blow the place up…

From the Mouths of Addicts: Stop/Drop Light

The following post was submitted by one of our Addicts Regulars..Totbox.  Perhaps you’ve seen Tot in the comments a time or two ;)…Yes Totbox is back with some insightful TSTO musings for us all! 

Howdy Pilgrims,

…I mean, Hello Neighbors!

As you know, you should visit your neighbors everyday (not your real life neighbors, your TSTO neighbors). During some events, neighbors are critical. What I have learned is Friendliness and Courtesy are key. So I have a few suggestions. Stop what your doing and let me shine a Light on the subject. 🙂

From the Mouths of Addicts: Bonuts!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post comes to us from Addicts reader, Doc.

Doc reached out to us recently via email with an idea for a post on a one-stop guide on how to earn bonuts since there are so many different methods now.  It’s always great to have all of this information in one place, so naturally I thought it would be great to get this up on the site!

So without further ado, here’s Doc with his Bonut post! (Bonut = Bonus donuts for those who don’t already know)  Enjoy 🙂

I thought it might be helpful to some if there was a one-stop guide on how to earn bonuts in our favorite, most additive game. If you are an avid freemium player, like me, you covet the opportunity to earn bonuts whenever you can. I will list each method, and give you a breakdown of how much you can get in a month.

From the Mouths of Addicts: Happy Birthday Barney!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post comes to us from one of our community folks, 02sb13.

02sb13 asked if he could write a post for us, so I said sure..come up with your own idea, give us your opinions on and and we’ll see what happens!  Well he came up with a fun post all about Barney to celebrate his upcoming Birthday (April 20th)!

Enjoy it my friends!  And don’t forget to give us your take in the comments below 🙂

On the 20th of April it is officially Barney Gumble’s birthday. I don’t know about you but I was really excited to find this out. Considering that recently Barney and the Bowlarama recently won the best premium character/building combo I thought I would remind you of the fun character and his role in tapped out!

From the Mouths of Addicts: Character Visual Task List

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As we all know TSTO is full of some great animations!  Everything from Homer shoving donuts in his face at a rapid pace to Comic Book Guy helping Agnes Cross the street!  We all love those visual tasks, but sometimes it’s hard to remember which characters tasks are visual.  Well not anymore!

A few weeks ago Addicts reader Z and reached out and let me know she was currently compiling a list of visual tasks for TSTO.  And she wanted to know if we would be interested in the list when she had it complete.  Of course knowing that many of you have been asking for such a list, I jumped at the opportunity!  Plus you know we love when you guys get involved in the process! 🙂

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post comes to us from one of our frequent commenters, Robobot!

Robobot asked if he could write another post for us, so I said sure..come up with your own idea, give us your opinions on and and we’ll see what happens!  Well he came up with a fun discussion about the recent trend in mini events.

Love em or hate em, Mini Events seem to be here to stay (at least for now)…and everyone has their own opinion about them.  And here’s Robobot’s take…

Enjoy it my friends!  And don’t forget to give us your take in the comments below 🙂

Thank you Addicts for taking time from your Arson’s on your friends and neighbors and your Recent Influx of Fires to read this post. Today I’ll be talking about the sorta recent trend that has been taking Your Springfield by storm. That’s right the one, the only, the mini Event.
