Springfield Showoff: Secret Agents/Cypress Creek

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. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

New mini event is underway in our pocket-sized Springfields!  The Pin Pals are here with their bowling skills & drinking powers!  Of course an all new mini event is a perfect excuse for EA to dust some premium items off and bring them out of the TSTO Vault.  (and throw a few other regular ones on discount)

Wondering if you should add any of the Pin Pals discounted or returning premium items to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this throwbacks to your Springfield…

It’s Pin Pal time in Springfield!  Yes, that’s right everyone’s favorite bowling team has reunited to help Mr. Burns evade Uncle Sam and the IRS!  This new mini event launched yesterday afternoon, and it’s stacked with bowling inspired buildings and decorations.

Of course, as with all events, a questline comes with it to help move us through the ins and outs of the event…and unlock all of the prizes.  As was mentioned on the rundown post this mini event is similar to the previous mini-events (like Homer the Heretic and the Most Dangerous Game before it), in that you’ve got to complete various tasks to unlock the prizes.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just how to unlock all the Pin Pal inspired prizes and figure out what happens when Mr. Burns tries to bowl…
