Springfield Showoff: Bart Royale

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we find ourselves sometimes forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU. So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Should I Spend Donuts on the Itchy and Scratchy Bot?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, it’s officially Cyber Monday, and it looks like EA decided to extend our sales for another day!  Now the Black Friday & Cyber Monday boxes/items will leave stores tomorrow, November 28th.  Which means I can actually write a Should I Buy for the one brand new item to hit our towns this weekend!  So let’s check out the new premium bot….

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 Itchy and Scratchy Bot to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this robotic Cat and Mouse to your town…

Reminder Thanksgiving Mini Event, Black Friday & Cyber Monday Deals Are Nearing the End

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend!  I’m popping in with a quick reminder that the Thanksgiving Mini Event, Black Friday and Cyber Monday Mystery Boxes (as well as the Cyber Monday Special…Itchy and Scratchy)  are all set to leave our game TOMORROW morning, November 27th. (Even though Cyber Monday stuff just hit)

This is different than past events because it’s ending on a Monday.  So just want to give you all a quick weekend reminder to finish up those prize tracks, grab those premium items and prepare yourself because everything’s leaving on Monday. Out with Thanksgiving and in with *fingers crossed* Christmas!

Note: This is odd because the mini event ends on a Monday.  We’re not sure if this means Christmas/Winter will be hitting on Tuesday or if they have something else up their sleeves.  Personally, for the Addicts staff, the next big event hitting on the 28th feels early…but it’s EA so you never know!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend friends!
