Hey Addicts, Caption This!

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!
These Caption This images are brought to us by jpfongsam….

(Usually when I do a roundup like this I like to include posts from several readers.  However JP’s had me cracking up so bad I couldn’t pick just one.  This this whole series is from JP…enjoy!)

Friday Filler – In Defense of the Pot(ter) Heads

In the last episode of Addicts Live, we came up with a couple of new terms that seemed to just burst from the womb of creativity of their own free will. The two terms were Pot Heads (Alissa’s) and Ninnieville (mine).  To be clear, neither were meant as pejorative terms (really, Sam!) but were instead, merely adjectives used to define a group more easily.

OK. So even I’m not entirely buying that…and I made one of them up.

This TSTO event has been one of the most divisive since last year’s Christmas/Holiday/Pagan event. And perhaps sadly, represents an ever-growing thin-skinned-ness or unbridled open season on anyone different (depending on your purview), that seems to have cropped up since the 2016 elections.  It’s ugly. It’s mean-spirited and un-apologetically destructive to the worldwide community.

So…take a knee or don’t take a knee…it’s time to finally get down to defending those who Alissa calls “Pot Heads,” (without actually going so far as to discuss pot).

Is this Event Hallow-Richard enough? (another classic from the Addicts Live…from Wookiee), or does it completely miss the mark of what we should expect from a THOH Major Event?

Should I Spend Donuts on Black Magic Hall?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Fall has arrived and there’s a haze over our Springfield’s, that can only mean one thing….it’s Halloween in our pocket-sized towns! This year EA’s thrown a little magic into the mix, with an Angelica Button theme invading our towns.  An all new event means loads of new premium items in our stores just tempting us to drop those donuts while they’re hot!

Of course with that limited-time label, it can be tempting 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 Black Magic Hall to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this dark magic spot to your town…

Turbo Tappin’ Halloween 2017 Premium Stuff: Angelica Button

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Fall has arrived and there’s a haze over our Springfield’s, that can only mean one thing….it’s Halloween in our pocket-sized towns! This year EA’s thrown a little magic into the mix, with an Angelica Button theme invading our towns. We’ve got beasts to battle, creatures to capture, wizards to wand wave and goblin gold to gather! Quite a few alliteration altercations huh?

Of course, it wouldn’t be an event in TSTO without some premium content.  And for Act 1 of Halloween, your premium character of choice is Angelica Button.  Not only does she battle beasts, but she has her own questline to quest through. (ok one alliteration too far perhaps…)

Now let’s wave our wands and view the quick walkthrough for the first Premium Character Questline of Halloween…

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…..

ICYMI there was an all-new episode of Addicts Live yesterday.  Where we broke down the ins and outs of the Halloween Event, as well as our hot takes on the magical theme.

An all new episode of The Simpsons airs tonight, featuring Martin Short! What do you think will happen in the new episode? Will you be checking it out?

Halloween has arrived in Springfield!  Yes, the familiar dark haze has covered our screens as Beasts and Wizards come to life in our Pocket-Sized towns. What are your initial thoughts on the Halloween Event?  Excited to see the Potter theme?

Over on Futurama Addicts Russian Tigger wrote a post comparing all 3 games (TSTO, FWOT & TQFS) and their respective Halloween Events.  You can find it here
