From the Mouths of Addicts: All I Want for Christmas

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 and guest blogger…Happy Tapper! 

Sam has some thoughts, musings and wishes for Christmas in TSTO!  Enjoy it my friends!  Here’s HappyTapper’s (Sam)…and his Christmas Wishes  -Alissa 

Hello fellow tappers. My name is HappyTapper or Sam and I want to start this post by saying … I don’t like Halloween. I’m WAY more of a Christmas lad. Even though we got a pretty naff Halloween event, I’m crossing my fingers for a truly fun Christmas event so that I forget “The Event to Not be Named” (Xmas 2016). As soon as I knew Halloween was getting quite repetitive and boring, I started to plan my perfect Christmas in TSTO because I’m sad, have no life and have nothing better to do then rewatch Simpsons episodes and organise an event that I know won’t even have an impact. When I thought about Christmas in the game I got quite worried because I really couldn’t think of much left to add because there aren’t a lot of Christmas episodes to pull from and the Christmas episodes that they have normally stay local to “normal” Springfield so don’t have much Christmas content for the game. BUT after some Christmas episode rewatching I had an idea for a Christmas event that pulled together bits and bobs of Festive content that I’d really like in the game.

I know that EA will be very near to finishing the Christmas event so I’m not writing this post to give EA an idea, I wanted to publish my ideas and thoughts here because I thought that if I enjoy these kind of posts then maybe some of you will. So let the ramble begin … Continue reading

From the Mouths of Addicts: Trick, Treat or Tap

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 long-time friends and she who runs Futurama Addicts and Family Guy Addicts…Russian Tigger! 

Somehow, between writing loads of posts for FWOT Addicts and FGA Addicts, RT found the time to knock out a fun Halloween related guest post for TSTO!  (overachiever!) 

Enjoy it my friends!  Here’s Russian Tigger…and her Halloween musings -Alissa 

It’s spooky and it’s scary, it’s loopy and it’s crazy…… Ok I think enough of you by now know that should probably read I’m loopy and I’m crazy, but hey I’m not talking about me, I’m talking about Halloween, honest guv’nor.

Yes, it’s that time of year when we overdose on candy and treacle apples, then let our imaginations run wild, well, to be honest, my minds default setting is probably running wild, so no real change there. But what do the inner workings of my mind have to do with Tapped Out and Halloween?

From the Mouths of Addicts: Simpsons IRL: A Not-so-happy Memory

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, Bugman!

Bugman sent me in this true story via email, of how The Simpsons can imitate life, even when you think “that would never happen!”.

Enjoy it my friends!  Here’s Bugman… -Alissa 

One of the funny things about The Simpsons is the over-the-top ineptitude of everyone in Springfield. People say or do things that are so outrageous that you might be tempted sometimes to laugh and think “Nobody in real life would ever do that!” Of course, if you’ve been around long enough, you realize that oh yes, no matter how dumb a thing is, someone, somewhere most certainly would.

Happy 150th Birthday Canada!

To paraphrase the late great Canadian ice hockey radio broadcaster Foster Hewitt:
Hello, Canada, and Tapped Out fans in the United States and Newfoundland and rest of the world!

Today is Canada’s 150th Birthday! Huge celebrations are underway from coast-to-coast in commemoration of this big milestone birthday. Being that Canadians make up the second biggest demographic of this site, I thought I’d highlight some of Canada’s greatest contributions over the past 150 years!

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, Happy Tapper!

Happy Tapper asked if he could write a post of his ideas for future Events in TSTO, and I said sure! 

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 Happy Tapper’s thoughts about what the future could bring for Events in TSTO…

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

Hello fellow tappers and welcome to a post where I try and grab the attention of EA so I can deliver my unorganized wishlist of future content.  A few months ago, when Addicts started the Design an Update contest, I started getting very excited and started to plot some ideas. I entered the update I thought would be the easiest to complete – being in a busy schedule at that time – and was very fortunate to get 1st place. All the other finalists were AMAZING and reading through them all makes you realize how much more EA have got to go.

I LOVE designing updates (yep, I’m THAT) sad so it seems such a waste to keep them to myself so, here I am. There was no better way to organize this ramble then to go with bullet points with no connection with each other whatsoever. Enjoy … Continue reading

From the Mouths of Addicts: Gil Deals: Deal or No Deal?

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 more colorful commentors, DaPimp! (in case you didn’t know Pimp also runs our Kingdoms Addicts Forum, for the Disney Magic Kingdoms game)

DaPimp thought it would be fun to take a look back at all of the Gil deals in TSTO history and ask the readers of Addicts “Deal, or No Deal?” 

So enjoy Pimp’s breakdown of the deals and be sure to vote on each option, and as always don’t forget to give us your take in the comments below 🙂 -Alissa 

Hey, TSTO Addicts! Your friendly neighborino DaPimp here. I thought it would be fun to take a look back at all the great “deals” that Gil Gunderson has presented to us in Tapped Out over the years. I compiled a list of deals in order of which they came into the game starting with the 1st Gil deal during the Christmas 2012 event. You might notice that you didn’t start playing until a certain point down the list, so you may not have got some of these deals from early in the game’s history.

Gil likes to show up periodically with an enticing offer, and attempt to get you to spend either real money on donuts, or those pink sprinkled donuts themselves on special items or item bundles. Some of these “deals” offer rebates where you get donuts back, and are a great time to buy certain items for a lower price. Some of these “deals” are high priced limited time items, but Gil works on commission so he is there to milk you for as much as he possibly can… and if he does, ol’ Gil is eating tonight!

Did YOU purchase any of these Gil Deals?
