In-Game Update: Christmas Promo (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Looks like we’ve got a little Christmas Promo on our hands….

This is an in-game update so nothing to download from the app store, it’ll download for you once you start up TSTO.  If you don’t see it, hard close and restart TSTO.  If you still don’t see it try restarting your device.  

Going through it all now, so I’ll be back with more in a bit…

Things start off with some auto dialogue from Kang followed by a 6s task for him.  This will be followed by a 4hr task for Kang…

More info below the fold….

Springfield Showoff: Thanksgiving 2017

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…

Light It Up Springfield

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So Christmas is my favorite holiday/time of the year (in case you didn’t already know).  I’m affectionately known in my family as a Griswold because I tend to get a little carried away with the Christmas lights….maybe a little more than Clark….if you could believe anyone gets more carried away than Clark.

But of course, today is November 21st and we’re still more than a month away from Christmas.  Heck, Thanksgiving is still two days away.  So when is it too early to turn on your Christmas Lights?

Turbo Tappin’ (Animal Free) Thanksgiving 2017: Premium Characters

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s the holiday season! Here in America we’re gearing up for Thanksgiving…the one holiday that stands between us and Christmas….so naturally the Simpsons have to celebrate!  While I think it would have been awesome to get a confetti shooting Homer balloon from the recent episode, this mini event is fun too!

Of course, as with all events, premium characters are a part of the fun.  With this event two premium characters (well one character and one costume) have been introduced…Quinn and Coat of Foxes Krusty.  Each comes equipped with their own questline to work your way through (and yes, they’ll be around when the event is over). So let’s take a look at the premium questlines for this Gone to the Birds Thanksgiving…

Thanksgiving 2017 Prize Overview

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Thanksgiving 2017 has arrived in Springfield!  And this year there’s a variety of tasks to complete and prizes to earn.  Unlike last year, and other mini-events, where I break each prize down individually, this time I opted to just do one post for all of the prizes.  Since (at least here in America) it’s a holiday week, so we’re trying to smush as much as possible in a short week.

With 5 prizes in all (6 really, because one prize has 2 components), 4 actual prizes for your town and 1 new animation for Homer & Bart, it can be a lot to try and fit/work into your Springfield.  So let’s take a look at each prize now and break it all down for you….

Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Thanksgiving Content?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Gooble Gobble Tappers!  It’s nearly Turkey Day here in America…where our favorite yellow family is located…which means time for an all-new mini event themed around Turkey! Or in this case…not eating Turkey.  Of course all new anything in Springfield means there are items back in our stores…just asking us to drop our sprinkles.

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 any of this returning content to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

Black Friday Sale *** SPOILERS ***

Bonjour Beautiful Business-minded Bargain Box Budget Buyers & Barterers,

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “B”)

 

Many times we state we only put up Spoilers when we feel there is a specific need or good reasoning behind it. The main issue is EA can, has, and will change their minds on us and the information when it goes live may be different then initially “teased” to us. That being said, I also know MANY of you just want to get an idea of what Buildings, Characters, and Decorations may be coming up on Black Friday. Therefore, I think this is one of those times that we can put some Spoilers up. 🙂

I have compiled a list of those “teased” items, just beware these are indeed Spoilers and due to early release on the info… what you actually see in YOUR game may vary on item and timing. Always double check YOUR game to see what pops up in YOUR game and be sure to come back on Friday for the most accurate information on how these sales will play out for YOU. 🙂

ON WITH THE SALES!!!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Here in America we’re gearing up for Thanksgiving…the one holiday that stands between us and Christmas….so naturally, the Simpsons have to celebrate!  While I think it would have been awesome to get a confetti-shooting Homer balloon from last Sunday’s episode, this mini event is fun too!  And as always, an all-new event (of any size) 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 Coat of Foxes Krusty to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this flashy clown to your town…
