Springfield Showoff: Halloween and Thanksgiving 2018

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”.

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow (Wednesday, November 28th) marks the end of the Thanksgiving mini-event!  So,  if you haven’t already, finish up that prize track, purchase your last few premium items, open those last minute mystery boxes and be prepared to see the mini-event leave our games tomorrow morning!

Thanksgiving 2018 Prize Breakdown: Minnie and her Fight Animation

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

No matter where you live, it’s still Thanksgiving in Springfield! As the Thanksgiving mini-event nears the end, it’s time to break down the prizes.  Since the Thanksgiving mini-event is always full of a TON of content (Black Friday sales especially), I thought this year I’d break the prize breakdowns into two posts.  One, that can be found here, for the buildings and decorations and another, this one, for Minnie and the animation.

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the Blood is Thinner Than Gravy questline, you’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

So let’s take a look at Minnie and her animation…

Black Friday 2018 Should I Buy Round-Up Part 2: Women to Gold

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So typically when it comes to a Mystery Box I lay out all of the details for each box in a separate post, however, Black Friday brought us SIXTEEN total boxes and a whole lotta stuff inside of each one! So to do an individual post on each box seems a little crazy, at least to me.  (especially since it’s nearly Thanksgiving and I’ve got a ton of stuff to prepare)

So rather than do my typical Mystery Box post, for each box, I’ve decided to do two big posts.  Each post will cover 8 boxes, their contents will be linked to a previous post and next to each item I’ll include the original donut cost (if applicable).  This will help you get a sense of what’s inside and what the value of each item is.

Since you can’t pick and choose what to buy from each box, you’ll have to make your own decisions based on what you like/want and what you can afford to spend.  Hopefully, the linked posts (and original costs) will help you make that decision.

So here we go with the second (and final) round of boxes, everything from women to gold!
