Springfield Jobs Act II- Prize Guide – Boiled Potato

Tut, Tut my good ladies and gents…we are awash in the best of “Jolly Old England” in our Springfields.  The heisting continues, but it is almost secondary to the cool buildings and prizes up for grabs in this Act.

I admit to being a bit of an Anglophile, so I am stoked to get some of the buildings and special decorations that have graced my imagination and book shelves for most of my lifetime.  And if you have to steal a few jewels to get it all?  So be it!

This brings us to Prize #6 – The Boiled Potato

Springfield Jobs 101: Act 2 Crafting

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Ah the Crafting post….where I give you the how-to and break down each and every item available to craft, so you don’t miss a thing!

Love it or hate it, EA has proven over the last couple of years that crafting is here to stay.  While the prizes themselves are pretty self-explanatory, collect this to earn these prizes, crafting is a whole other “animal”.  Crafting requires some self-direction.  You decide what you want and collect the items to craft accordingly.  Sometimes this is successful and sometimes it’s not. And, as with all things, for some events crafting is easier than others.

Act 2 brought eight new craftables to Springfield, so let’s take a closer look at the new items…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Let the heisting begin! The latest event in Springfield, The Springfield Job, is all about pulling off elaborate Heists…well not too elaborate Homer is involved…in a bet between two Nuclear Power Plant owners.

Wondering if you should add Guy Incognito & the Nag and Weasel to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding Homer’s other doppelganger to your town…

Springfield Jobs Act II- Prize Guide – Queen’s Carriage

Tut, Tut my good ladies and gents…we are awash in the best of “Jolly Old England” in our Springfields.  The heisting continues, but it is almost secondary to the cool buildings and prizes up for grabs in this Act.

I admit to being a bit of an Anglophile, so I am stoked to get some of the buildings and special decorations that have graced my imagination and book shelves for most of my lifetime.  And if you have to steal a few jewels to get it all?  So be it!

We’re gonna skip over Prize #4…just another bundle of crafting currency. You get it. You need a bunch. 300 is not a great prize…but, it is a prize…kinda.

Changing the World Through the Generosity of Tappers…

It’s been a while since I “went to the well” to start a new campaign. I don’t like to stand around with my hand out…until we really need something. But, in this case, we do.

As so many of you are aware, the only reason I still blog and tap, is the opportunity to do the work we started in Buyijja, Uganda in 2014 when my youngest daughter did an internship there. Alissa offers monetary support for these projects, and I blog. It’s a nice quid-pro-quo agreement. But, most of the money for these projects comes from Tappers like you! And, over the course of the 4 years, TSTO TAPPERS have been the primary source of support, raising almost 70% of all of the gifts offered to this work.

Amazing…and so incredibly difficult to explain to others. “Well yes…we have an NGO in Uganda that is funded primarily through the generosity of a silly Simpsons mobile game…I KNOW…it sounds crazy...but LOOK AT THE WORK WE HAVE DONE!!

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…..

The Simpsons are back this week with an all-new episode!  What do you think will happen in this week’s episode?

We’re moving into week 2+ of Springfield Jobs Act 2, how are you faring with the prize track?  I completed it and unlocked Nigel yesterday, so now it’s just crafting currency away! Are you having the same success?

ICYMI, Addicts Live was all new yesterday.  We talked a little Springfield Jobs and a lot Rollback Bug.  Check it out if you haven’t already, you can watch/listen here.

How about the rest of your weekend?  Anything fun and exciting going on? It was the first warm Saturday here in ages, so we took advantage and did loads of Spring Cleanup in our Yard.  Feels good to have a few more things crossed off our list, especially when it means enjoying the sunshine and fresh air!

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!
