Should I Spend Donuts On Circus of Values?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Grab your Santa hats and break out the tinsel because it’s Christmas time in Springfield! Yes the annual TSTO Christmas event has arrived in our pocket-sized towns, covering our usual perfect weather towns with a fresh blanket of bright, white, snow!   Of course, by now, we all know that a new event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with limited-time premium items to tempt us.

Addicts Want to Know: 2018 “Year In Review” Main Events

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, we’re nearing the end of 2018.  Another year in the books and another year full of events in TSTO.  As we prepare to head into 2019, we’re one again planning on doing a very special Addicts Live for the end of the year.  This will be pre-recorded, so nothing to tune in live for.  Just like we did last year, this year in review episode will feature a discussion about 2018 in TSTO.  We’ll talk about the events, share our opinions about each event & we hope to include your opinions as well!

So in preparation for that episode, I’ve prepared an Addicts Poll…a place for you to break down just the events of 2018.  This way we can keep Addicts Live interactive, despite being pre-recorded.

Last week we covered the mini-events, and now we’re breaking down the main events.

So please, take a moment to answer the poll questions below about main events in TSTO during 2018, and as always feel free to elaborate your thoughts more in the comments below.

We will share the results of this, and the mini-events poll, on the episode of Addicts live that will air either New Years Eve or New Years Day. 

Thank you!

Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

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 Open Thread…..

It’s Christmas in Springfield!  Thoughts on the new Christmas event? Prizes?  New Format? Have you calmed down yet?

Speaking of Christmas, have you started decorating yet?  How’s your shopping going? Any special Christmas traditions you follow?

And finally, how about the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Friday Filler – Knowing When a Problem is rEAlly a Problem

I’m not really sure why the outcry from this event hit me so hard.  I’m not usually one to react emotionally about comments on this blog. But, this time…well…I admit that I lost it.

I mean...really lost it.  Like throwing the phone across the room, lost it. I mean, the kind of lost it that makes people step away…far away…until you settle down and stop laying on the floor, in a quivering mass…
