Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Episode Content, Week 8

It was five years ago, just after the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs bracket was complete that I thought it might be cool to do a The Simpsons Tapped Out bracket. Here we are in the thick of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs again, and it’s time for our fifth TSTO Addicts Bracket Battle!

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there is A LOT of content in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. There is so much in fact, that it was hard just to narrow it down to 64 entries to start with. With that in mind, we present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Episode Content Bracket Battle.

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…..

Week 2 of Game of Games launched last week, and we’re close to week 3 starting. How are you doing with week 2? Thoughts on the prizes?  Questlines? Just excited to have new content?

Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Trivia will be back next Saturday, I’ve had a bunch of things going on so I just haven’t been able to sit down and write up trivia questions.  Instead for a little Saturday break from Game of Games, here’s a caption this round up!

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments!

When we can, we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

Hey Addicts… Caption This!

Friday Filler – What’s A Little Earworm Among Friends?

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

As many of you have pointed out, one of the nicest surprises with this Event is the “new music” that plays in the background. I put “new music” in quotations for a reason…mainly because it isn’t new...just new to us.

What?? You play with your sound turned off?  Then you are missing one of the best features of the event.

I agree that sound can get crazy when grinding every 4 hours, and my wife would be the first to scream, “can you please turn the sound off?” as she is trying to sleep through one of my 10:30pm grindfests.

But, this music serves a purpose beyond entertainment. It is a little earworm of a tune that runs with a time signature and running time that is perfect for tagging, or just keeping track of how long you are tapping.

And most important, if you let it become a true earworm, it can be a bit of a soundtrack for the rest of your life!

But, who wrote it???

Should I Spend Donuts On the Conflict of Enemies Battle Arena & SmellYaL8r?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Let the games begin!  After a long hiatus, we finally have a major event in Springfield!  Game of Games has arrived and it looks to be a game fest of nerdy proportions! Of course, an all-new event means all new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Conflict of Enemies Battle Arena & SmellYaL8r to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this green giant combo to your town…

Raise A Birthday Glass to Our Friend and Founder!

That’s right fellow Tappers!  Today, is Alissa’s Birthday! 

We have been friends (and even besties have disagreements, but come around…right?) for almost as long as there has been a Tapped Out!

Alissa is clearly the “Queen of Tapped Out,” but as there is no Queen in Springfield, we’ll just let her know that she is very special to all of us!

Let her know how much you appreciate her! I know I do!

Happy Birthday to the Tapperist of the Tappers!

Game of Games Week 2 Is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Game of Games Week 2 is Live!

Things kick off for week 2 with some dialogue between Homer and CBG…

Homer: Comic Book Guy, I need tickets to E4. I know you must have some, because you’re so uncool.
CBG: Incredibly rude way to ask for a favor. Still, one of the nicest things anyone has said to me today.
Homer: So can you get me the tickets or not?
CBG: Perhaps. But first, you have to listen to my fresh take on every Marvel movie ever.

This is followed by a 6s task for Homer.  Once completed you’ll trigger the week 2 questline, which will take you through unlocking all of the week 2 prizes, Wild Wild Quest.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during week 2…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the returning Magic Academy Library (& Angelica Button), Blocko Store, Sequel Stop, Black Magic Hall, or Burns Dragon combo to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…
