Should I Spend Donuts On the Returning Jenda, Zia or Homer’s Dream House?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Gather ’round the tapping device everyone, it’s update time in TSTO!  And there’s no time like the present for the residents of our pocket-sized Springfields to make New Year’s Resolutions…even if we are 16 days into 2020 already!   Of course, a new event gives EA an excuse to stock our stores with returning premium content, 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 the returning Jenda, Zia or Homer’s Dream House 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…

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…..

No new Simpsons tonight.  In fact, there won’t be a new episode for about a month. (Feb 16th)  NFL playoffs are still going on, and they’ll conclude with the Superbowl in February.

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Friday Filler – And Then It Was A New New Year?

Thank Grog It’s Firday,

So…let me get this straight.  The first line in the new “mini-event” that we got this week was, “Happy New Year!!” And that came on the 15th of January.

Then, Lisa sets the whole event up with the comment, “There’s no telling who we could be if we just kept our New Year’s Resolutions” (I’m paraphrasing…but that was the gist of it).

So…from the top…EA is two weeks late with the New Year, with an event that introduces FUTURE dopplegangers of the characters that already have the most skins…and we are supposed to celebrate?

Surprisingly… I AM celebrating.

No new Simpsons tonight.  In America the NFL playoffs are on instead.   But did you watch last week’s episode? Thoughts?

Nothing new in TSTO. Abe’s in Toyland ended,  but wasn’t removed.  Can we expect to see an update this week?

How’s your designing coming?  What are you doing with your town? Did you take a photo of your Springfield in the snow? Share some photos in the comments below! (If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post)

Friday Filler – Looking Forward To 2020 As Soon As 2019 Leaves!

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Our little game has always had a bit of a problem with time as a construct.   Time is supposed to be linear…always moving forward.  But, of course, in our game, the time/space continuum has been off since they started having multiple versions of the same characters wandering around in the same space/time.

As any fan of movies like “The Time Machine,” or “Back to the Future” know, messing about with the past can have disastrous outcomes for the present and the future.  The fact is, changing even one tiny fraction of an event in the past, could ripple forward with cataclysmic results. People aren’t born,  inventions aren’t invented, and we have to deal with multiple takes of the same event from differing eras of the same person!  It’s like watching “Inception” on acid…which you don’t need to do, because watching “Inception” makes you feel like you’re on acid. But, I digress…

EA seems to disregard this fact, and has  apparently placed the game once again into some sort of “suspended animation” that is keeping us locked in Christmas 2019, without the ability to do most of what we love about the game.

Let’s take a look at where we are…
