Springfield Showoff: Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na DUFF STUFF!!

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 find ourselves sometimes 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. 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. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

A Super Bowl WDTCF – Duff Blimp

Blimping ain’t easy… but it sure is fun.  So what’s up folks?  It’s Super Bowl Sunday and we got a F-F-FREE decoration today from our benevolent progenitors at EA (Sorry, I started school again and feel edjamikated).  The Duff Blimp is a rad addition to all of our towns.  I know most of us were expecting the Valentine’s Day Event but I think the little surprises from the Super Bowl tie-in are nifty.

Sunday Night Open Thread SUPER BOWL SUNDAY

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

How are my favorite Tappers this evening?  Did y’all enjoy your weekend?  Going a little crazy with Addicts being “off the grid a bit”?  Are you watching the Super Bowl?  Or are you boycotting it?  Did you get your free gift(s) from EA today in YOUR Springfield?  What’d you think?

Anyway….it IS Sunday and you know what that means, right?  No, not a day for hangover recovering…unless you’ve been drinking Bunny’s “water”.  It’s time for another Sunday Night Open Thread!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So…here is your Sunday Night Open Thread.  It’s Super Bowl Sunday time!  The game airs on FOX coverage starts…well all day, but the game starts 6:30pm.  So talk about the game…who do YOU think will win?  The Broncos or the Seahawks?  Just how many times will Peyton say Omaha?  Will the Simpson’s accurately predict the Superbowl?  So far what is YOUR favorite commercial?  Did you get your free gift today?  What did you think?  Where did you place it?  

Can’t wait to chat with you all!

Have Fun!

TSTO Anonymous… forget TSTO, it’s Superbowl Time!!!

UPDATE from Alissa: We’re back…kinda sorta maybe.  All of the info (posts, images and your AMAZING comments) have been ported to our new server.  However, now we’re just waiting for the domain name to play catch up across the internet.  So some of you are still seeing the old site (if you see this message you’re seeing the old site) and others will see the new site.  We’re hopeful it’ll all be resolved shortly.  Believe me Bunny, Wookiee and I are going NUTS with out being about to post and answer your comments….we miss our favorite Addicts!!

That reminds me…if you posted a comment yesterday and have yet to see it post…we have it I promise.  It’s still in moderation because we want to make sure it carries over to the new site.  I promise you that I will make sure your comment gets posted on the new site.

Well hey there Addicterinos!  Did you miss us yesterday?  It’s been a little since we held our last TSTO Anonymous meeting and with the realization that The Simpsons won’t be airing new material for a month, I figured it was definitely time to gather all the Addicts together.

Why do we not get fresh material?  Easy… the Super Bowl and the 2014 Winter Olympics.  Everyone is familiar with the Olympics, but why the Super Bowl?  Isn’t that just an American thing?  Well, FOX has the monopoly on this event and that means our beloved family sits on the sidelines while giant men in pads crash against each other to get an oblong and pointy ball across 100 yards of grass.  Basically our version of rugby that steals the true name of soccer.

Should I Spend Donuts On The Duff Party Bus?

Episode Tie-In you say? Superbowl brought back a really cool LIMITED TIME premium decoration.  Now, as with all new premium content you may be asking “Should I Spend Donuts On THIS?”  Well before you hit that confirm button, lets break down the Pros and Cons of adding this TOTALLY AWESOME DUFF PARTY BUS to your Springfield!


Decoration: Duff Party Bus
Donut Price: 50 donuts
Unique?: NO (OH YEAH!! A party bus for EVERYONE!)
Bonus: 2.25% (bonus cash and XP to all tasks)
Bonus % Per Donut Spent: 0.05% (.045)
Conform-o-Meter Points: 400 Vanity
Where Can I Place It?: Land, Beach, and Squidport. (have party…will travel)

Final Thought: At 50 donuts and a 2.25% bonus, the Duff Party Bus seems well worth the sweets spent to acquire it to me.  I don’t think we ever have enough vehicles around town and this one just adds to the cool look and feel with all of the other Duff items. I would say to grab this one while you can, as it IS limited to the Superbowl episode and most likely to be gone after Sunday. OH YEAH!!!!

Want a little more information about where the Duff Bus came from?  Check out Wookiee’s Where Did THAT Come From post here.

What do you think?  Will you be paying 50 donuts for Duff Party Bus?

Where did THOSE come from – Duff Party Bus, Duff Racer (and Duff-Barney Blimp)

NOTE: Here at Addicts, we often write filler posts in advance for those lull periods between updates and events.  This post has been sitting since November of last year.  More proof of the Wookiee’s ESPN?  Probably not… but a fuzzball can dream.  No matter what, I certainly don’t mind only having to mildly tweak a post…

Who has two furry thumbs and an excuse to ramble about more decorations?  The Wookiee, that’s who.  This time I decided to tackle a few of the limited time items you may have coveted a time or two in a neighborino’s town.
