Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ol’ Gil is back in Springfield!  After not making a Halloween appearance, it’s nice to see Gil in the streets of Springfield once again.  It’s just not an event until Gil gets involved!

Anyway, Gil is back and, as always, he’s got another “deal” for us.   What’s the latest gimmick he’s peddling? Well, this time around he’s trying to sell us literal Heaven on Earth!

So let’s break down the details of this latest offer and determine if this deal is worth the donuts or if you should take a hard pass…

Should I Spend Donuts On Jewish Walk of Fame & Yahweh?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In our games, the snow is falling and TSTO is calling yoo hoo!  It’s the most wonderful time of the year Tappers, Christmas in TSTO!  And this year EA is insulting everyone with a true Sacrilegious Christmas…nothing says 2020 quite like this! (thank goodness 2020 is over now!) And nothing says the holidays like buying stuff!

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 Jewish Walk of Fame & Yahweh to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Jewish combo to your town…

Christmas 2020: Turbo Tappin’ Act 4 Stupid vs Sexy

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year Tappers, Christmas in TSTO!  And this year EA is insulting everyone with a true Sacrilegious Christmas…nothing says 2020 quite like this! Also always, loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up…

The 2020 Christmas Event follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting just over a week (9 days) and taking us through a new part of the event!

For Act 4 we’re tasked with collecting Candy Canes!  Each part of the story will unlock another prize themed for the fourth part of the story.  So let’s take a look at the details behind Act 4 and the Turbo Tappin’ Version for Stupid vs Sexy…

Christmas 2020 Act 4 in Live! The Rundown and What You Need To Know

Don’t forget about our new contest/giveaway!  Info on how you can win here.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Christmas is over, the New Year has begun…and yet we’re still in the groundhog day loop of Christmas in TSTO.  Nice to have some normalcy in life these days.  Act 4 of the Clash of Creeds Christmas Royale is upon us! Also always, loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up…

Remember, this is the FINAL Act of Clash of Creeds.  This, and all other Acts, will be leaving our games on January 13th.  So be sure to finish up by the 13th or you may miss out!

Things kick off for Act 4 with some dialogue between Yahweh, The Leader, Baby Jesus, and Homer…

Yahweh: You must be this The Leader I’ve been hearing so much about.
The Leader: In the flesh. What can I do ya for?
Baby Jesus: Yahweh? What are you doing here?
Yahweh: Got summoned, major drag.
Baby Jesus: Tell me about it.
The Leader: You two know each other?
Yahweh: Depends who you ask.
Homer: Well, I hope you’re not here to try to stop The Leader. He’s a good guy. Other than the whippings, but those were well-deserved.
The Leader: We’re just having a good time here, doing surprisingly lucrative manual labor to prepare things for our new home on Blisstonia.
Yahweh: Well, this all seems to be in order. I see no reason why we can’t all coexist.
The Leader: Perhaps we could do more. Have you had a chance to see…my spaceship?
Yahweh: Eh, that’s cool. Not really my thing.

This triggers the Act 4  questline, Stupid vs Sexy, and is followed by a 4hr tasks for The Leader, Rabbi K, Homer, and Yahweh (if you bought him) as well as a task to collect Act 4 Currency (150).  Stupid vs Sexy is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of this Act’s prizes.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during Act 4…

So let’s get started this week by talking about two historical figures, former US President Woodrow Wilson and Ice Hockey Hall of Famer Gordie Howe.

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…..

Happy New Year!  We’re 3 days into 2021, how’s it treating you so far?

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

P.S. I know some of you are missing Addicts Live.  It has been awhile since we’ve done one…trying to work something out so we can get one up and get back on a regular schedule.  Also, working on some other things for our YouTube page to keep things light and fun (including some rebranding on it).  So look for info on that soon…

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!

This Caption This! image is brought to us by Dorman01…

So go ahead and caption away!

If you’ve got an image you’d like to submit for a “Caption this!” post, email it to us at you never know when yours might be next!

Friday Filler – Looking Back At The Year That Wasn’t

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

The wonderful thing about blogging about a game like TSTO, is that most of our “reality” is not real at all. It’s mostly just reacting to the latest far-fetched plot that the writer(s) have come up with to drive the events in the game. These plot twists are about the only thing about the game that offer anything different from the day-to-day “same old” that the programmer(s) offer from EA.

If it weren’t for the insanely weird (and getting weirder) plot lines, we would be left with nothing more than an unending, mundane, series of “Acts” giving us an unending series of items and characters, to fill the very finite expanses of our Springfields.

Imagining a REAL year, in our REAL LIVES, that made even the most outrageous TSTO plot-line look boring in comparison, and you would be describing the year 2020.  Let’s take a look back at the events that made this year the insane dumpster fire that is was…and try to salvage some positive out of it.

Things may look a little different right now, but we hope you all have a phenomenal New Year & wherever you are tonight, please get home safe!
