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?

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!

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…

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

 

Hey Tappers! I’m back on Addicts again, writing a post telling you, my ideas for Events. (So take out Your Notepads EA) Continue reading

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.
