Addicts Shop Black Friday SALE!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy (almost) Black Friday!  To celebrate the crazy sales of Black Friday we’re offering a special Black Friday sale in the Addicts Shop!

All items are 10% off (the biggest discount they’ll let me give)!  Now is a great time to add some Addicts Swag to your wardrobe, or to get that special gift for the Addict in your life!

The Black Friday Sale is available in BOTH the Addicts Shop and the Laugh it Up Shop, and the sale ends December 2nd! So grab those items while you can!

The way the store works is, I needed to set up two different codes for the Addicts Shop and the Laugh it Up Shop.  So for the Addicts Shop the code is BLACKFRIDAY2019 and for the Laugh It Up Shop the code is BLACKFRIDAY19.

Happy Shopping!

Happy Turkey Day!

Hey Howdy Hey Turkey Tappers!

It’s finally Turkey Day here in the US…the latest date it could possibly be!  It really feels like it took forever to get here this year.  And you know what that means…Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Apple and Pumpkin pie, football, stretchy pants, and insane sales at the mall!

You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always check out the details of the Thanksgiving (All American Auction) Mini Event here, the Black Friday Cash items here, the mystery boxes here, and the Gold box here as we take the day to celebrate the holiday with our families.  Although…..Super Safi will likely be lurking around the comments, as Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving last month.  So like a lot of you, Safi will be working today too!

However, we couldn’t let a day dedicated to being thankful go by without a special THANK YOU to YOU…our AMAZING readers!  We are so thankful for each and every one of you that take the time to read our posts and comment.  So from Patric, Wookiee, Safi and myself…THANK YOU!!  You guys rock and we couldn’t do this without you!

Here at Addicts, we’ve all been blessed in so many ways and we hope you have too! In that spirit, we’d like to invite you to take a moment and let us know in the comments below what you’re thankful for this Thanksgiving! We can’t wait to see what you say!

Happy Thanksgiving Tappers (whether you celebrate or not, we all celebrate through TSTO)!

PS Look for a special Black Friday Sale in the Addicts Shop to launch tonight!

Showoff Announcement: All American Auction and Black Friday 2019

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Addict Designers!  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff, and with All American Auction and Black Friday 2019  nearing the end, it’s time to show us what you’ve done with all the new stuff!   This time around I want to see what you’ve done with the All American Auction/Thanksgiving/Black Friday items! (You know…Swap Meets, Balloons, Turkey Stuffers, VHS Village, and more!)  So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

As always please remember to limit it to 1-2 of your favorite areas/photos…we can’t show your whole town, unless you want to send in your entire town via town portrait.

So use this time to polish up your town and show us how creative you can be!  Send in your All American Auction/Thanksgiving/Black Friday inspired designs (by 8pm ET Tuesday, December 3rd) and we’ll be putting up the Showoff post featuring your designs on Wednesday, December 4th. 

Remember, your designs can be anything and everything Thanksgiving/All American Auction/Black Friday

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET Tuesday, December 3rd, can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.

You can send your designs in two ways…either post a link to the image in the comments on this post or you can email them to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  We won’t be pulling images from anywhere else, so please if you want to be featured either submit in the comments below or email your images to us.

Note: PLEASE try to limit your submissions to only 1-2 of your favorite screenshots.  We like to try and let everyone showoff their town but it becomes difficult when some of you are sending in 7-10 images.  Pick your favorite areas and send them in (or if you stitch photos together, that works too).  We’ll try our best to get EVERYONE in, but please understand that sometimes we miss a photo or two.  If we miss you one week, we’ll try really hard to make sure we get you in the next week.  You’re always welcome to showoff your town, at any time, on our Flickr page.  We know a lot of you have awesome towns that you want to show off, but please try to stick with this week’s theme.  Remember, this isn’t a contest.  There’s nothing to win.  It’s just a fun way to showoff your town and get some design inspiration from your fellow Addicts.  🙂   

Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff?  Post your images  in the Comments below or email us your screenshots at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.)

Should I Spend Donuts On the Returning All American Auction Items?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Gather ’round the tapping device everyone, it’s update time in TSTO! And there’s nothing like the holidays to bring a little crazy to our pocket-sized towns! As the latest mini-event in TSTO hit our towns recently…this time to celebrate Thanksgiving.  Or more specifically Black Friday! Of course, a new event gives EA an excuse to stock our stores with returning premium content, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

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 returning Mattress King Warehouse, Mattress King Store, The Escape Zone, or Bob’s Big Buddha 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…

Morning Mathematical Monsters & Maniacs!

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

 

Hi, I’m Super Safi and you may remember me from such stats and strategy posts as Kwik-E-Mart Farming and the advanced losing-to-win Superheroes battle strategy.

Over the past 600+ episodes, The Simpsons has taken us on an amazing mathematical journey involving fractions, probability, Fermat’s last theorem, and hundreds of other aspects from the wonderful world off mathematics.

And what better way to start your week, then by discussing math Monday morning?

This week we go back to an episode of The Simpsons from 20 years ago and look at the Imperial Units for lengths.

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!
