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…..

Don’t forget voting is open in the latest Bracket Battle!  Pick your favorite buildings to advance!

 

So, this week it was out with the old and in with the..old? Yes, we saw the return of Superheroes this week.  Don’t worry though, just a small little update with mostly items to purchase.  We suspect the next big thing will hit us in August…what do you think it will be?

How was the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting? Can you believe July is almost over?

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!

Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Building, Week 5

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there are plenty of buildings in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. We present to you TSTO Addicts’ Most Desired Building Bracket Battle.

Predictability and Speculation, It All Comes Down To Timing…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

I couldn’t help but notice yesterday when Superheroes 3 hit many of you expressed disappointment that it wasn’t a major event.  You were expecting EA’s usual format..big event, mini event, big event…and it didn’t happen this time around.  Instead we got an “old school” update.  Some new dialogue and a bunch of items in the store.

For those of you confused as to why EA’s not following their traditional format (Big event, mini event, big event)…I talked about this in the comments earlier this week, let’s do a little forecasting and speculation (really any excuse to bust out my crystal ball..)…
