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?

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.

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”).
