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…..

Still no new Simpsons this week…we’re on a long hiatus from our favorite yellow family.  How managing the Simpson withdrawals?

Act 2 of Bart Royale ends this week, how have you fared with the prize track?

 

Have you been watching the Olympics?  What’s your favorite event to watch?

And finally, how was 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!

Tip to Start Act 3 of Bart Royale

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick reminder, we talk about this all the time, starting TOMORROW (Sunday) SAVE YOUR DAILY CHALLENGES! (provided you’ve finished the Act 2 prize track)  This will allow you to start Act 3 ahead of the game.  So SAVE THOSE CHALLENGES!

The reason you start saving them tomorrow (Sunday) is because you can only have 3 at a time at most.  Saving tomorrow and Monday is two Daily Challenges and then when Act 3 hits on Tuesday you’ll get a 3rd.  This easily allows you to start Act 3 3,000+ event currency ahead.  

 

Friday Filler – Taking a Closer Look and Listen to Our Games


Thank Grog It’s Firday!!

Something really miraculous happened over the last couple of weeks…

No…it wasn’t that I got my life back after almost two years of “wedding planning” while doing everything else in my crazy, busy, life.  It’s that I got my TOWN back…or at least got it back to a place where I can SEE the stuff that makes it special.

I had an unwitting accomplice in this…AT&T (and a bunch of my daughters).  It’s complicated, but had to do with everyone coming into town for the wedding, and all needing to get new phones, and AT&T having some crazy combo deals on both phone upgrades, but also a bonus on getting an iPad for next to nothing… See where this is going? Not clear enough yet?

Well keep reading…

Turbo Tappin’ Bart Royale: Act 2 Premiums, Jeremy and Mountain Man

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Act 2 of the event brought two new premium characters to Springfield. Jeremy Jailbird & Mountain Man.  As with the vast majority of premium characters both of these characters came equipt with their own questlines.  So let’s take a look at the premium Turbo Tappin’ version of each….

Where Did That Come From? – Prepper Lindsey Naegle and Ruffians


When I saw this in Alissa’s “Assignment List,” I thought to myself…”Wait…didn’t I already do a post on this?”  The answer is… sorta.

In my January 5th, Friday Filler, I got deep into why I bought the Premium Character Lloyd (yes…we have been “prepping” that long), and his relationship to one of my favorite singer/writer/actors, Tom Waits.

You can find it here…

However…to put a finer point on things (and who doesn’t want to put a finer point when one can?), the assignment wasn’t about Lloyd…but about Prepper Lindsay, and the Ruffians. So, even though they are all from the aforementioned episode (love a word, like aforementioned…it’s so long, and legal/important sounding…even though it just means, “I already said it”), I will dive a tad deeper into the episode, and offer up a couple of hilarious screen shots, that actually have appeared in our ‘lil game. (I Hate the phrase, “‘lil game” but…sometimes I use it just to annoy myself, ironically).

So…when we first met Prepper Lindsey…

Where Did That Come From? – A Visit to the Outlands

It’s funny…really. We have been complaining for a while that the event updates seem to be based on just smidgens of actual Simpsons’ episodes.  We get whole segments of weird beasts, or giant recreations of a building, for something that only appears in about 5 seconds of the actual episode “on which it is based.”

Not so with this Outland-based episode. But, I am going to whine…as there something from this episode that would have been REALLY cool…and is not offered in the event. But, we’ll get to that later…

“At Long Last Leave” is the fourteenth episode of The Simpsons’ twenty-third season, (S23E14) and the 500th episode overall of the series.

And it starts with a “Couch Gag” that actually shows a few frames of every couch gag from the previous 499 episodes. Pretty cool…

What isn’t cool, is how the town treats the Simpsons…
