Should I Spend Donuts on the 2018 Returning Valentine’s Day Items?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Love is in the air in Springfield!  Yes, Valentine’s Day has made it’s annual return to our stores.  We’ve got a new item and a themed Mystery Box, but what most of you are after are the loads of Valentine’s Day goodies to spend Sprinkles directly on.

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 any of the Valentine’s Day items 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…

Valentine’s Day Mystery Box

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Another day, another Mystery Box arrives in Springfield!  This time, it’s a Valentine’s Day box full of Valentine’s/Date Night themed goodies from years past!

This is a premium box full of your chance to get those limited-time premium character/building/decorations with a Valentine’s/Date flair to them.  By now we should all be familiar with how Mystery Boxes work, so let’s jump to the breakdown of what’s inside… Continue reading

Where Did That Come From? – A Visit to the Outlands

It’s funny…really. We have been complaining for a while that the event updates seem to be based on just smidgens of actual Simpsons’ episodes.  We get whole segments of weird beasts, or giant recreations of a building, for something that only appears in about 5 seconds of the actual episode “on which it is based.”

Not so with this Outland-based episode. But, I am going to whine…as there something from this episode that would have been REALLY cool…and is not offered in the event. But, we’ll get to that later…

“At Long Last Leave” is the fourteenth episode of The Simpsons’ twenty-third season, (S23E14) and the 500th episode overall of the series.

And it starts with a “Couch Gag” that actually shows a few frames of every couch gag from the previous 499 episodes. Pretty cool…

What isn’t cool, is how the town treats the Simpsons…

Should I Spend Donuts on Snuggler’s Cove?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, I guess every battle needs a break, especially when that break is for L-O-V-E.  Yes, in the midst of the attacking and fortifying we’ve got ourselves a little Valentine’s Day sale in our stores.  So grab those sprinkles because our stores are full of love items mostly from Valentine’s past fill your Springfield with!

Yes, before you ask…I will be doing breakdowns for EVERYTHING related to Valentine’s Day over the next couple of days.  Items don’t leave stores until the 18th, so if you need more info just sit tight I’ll be writing it up between now and the 14th….

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 Snuggler’s Cove to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this bracket battle building to your town…

Bart Royale Prize Guide: Act 2, Prize 3 Outlands Water Tower

Ohayo Original Outstanding Optimistic Outlands Onlookers,

Looks like we’ve got ourselves a Mad Max tribute on our hands! Bart Royale has found its way into our pocket sized Springfields! This apocalyptic event hit our devices and it’s full of Homergeddon inspired decorations, buildings & characters!

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts, with each Act containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act. Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the Second Act you’re tasked with collecting Buzz Cola () to unlock each prize!

The third Act 2 prize awarded at 25,300  is the Outlands Water Tower, because sometimes you just wanna store some water for a non-rainy day!

So let’s take a closer look at this first prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…

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…..

Still no new Simpsons this week…we’re on a long hiatus from our favorite yellow family.  How managing the Simpson withdrawals?

Act 2 of Bart Royale hit Springfield last Tuesday, are you as underwhelmed with the Act 2 prize track as I am?  Which premium purchases have you made?

ICYMI….Addicts Live was all new yesterday!  So even if the game is moving slow and our favorite yellow family isn’t on TV…we’ve got you covered with lots of laughs and antics!  Check it out here

Another ICYMI….Patric recapped the miracles (and near ladder misses) from his daughter’s wedding last weekend in this Friday Filler Post.  Worth the read if you’re looking for a little non-TSTO side of life.

And finally, how was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?  For those in the northern hemisphere, are you as ready for Spring/Summer as I am? (bring on the warmer (less depressing) weather already!)

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Friday Filler – When TSTO Gives You A Badly Needed Break

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

No. I REALLY mean it!  If it wasn’t for this being Firday (yes there are drinks involved)…I’d be in deep trouble. It’s been one of those weeks…when “catching up” is not gonna happen. Mostly because last week had 11 days in it. Don’t ask me how it happened…but it did. Big events, and time/space have a way of doing that to you.

So, you are freaked out, because you are behind on “the Act II Calendar?”  Come on. After the week I’ve had, I am starting to think those of you who are behind, aren’t trying. But then again, maybe EA is specifically giving me a break, and letting me stay ahead on this TSTO event, simply because I am so behind in the rest of my life.

It certainly seems that way…because when I needed it…when I rEAlly needed it…I was able to “get it all” in Act I, and stay ahead in Act 2, without tapping for 3 full days. I had more important things to do…like get my daughter married, and not fall off the ladder, and make sure that the stain on the hangy things matched the wood from the other thingy, and that the gold feet on the love seat didn’t look cheesy…and that the idea for wrapping the building in plastic was really going to work…and that the plastic wasn’t going to blow away in the wind, and that the heaters weren’t going to burn the place down…

Don’t believe me? Read on…
