Friday Filler – And Then It Was A New New Year?

Thank Grog It’s Firday,

So…let me get this straight.  The first line in the new “mini-event” that we got this week was, “Happy New Year!!” And that came on the 15th of January.

Then, Lisa sets the whole event up with the comment, “There’s no telling who we could be if we just kept our New Year’s Resolutions” (I’m paraphrasing…but that was the gist of it).

So…from the top…EA is two weeks late with the New Year, with an event that introduces FUTURE dopplegangers of the characters that already have the most skins…and we are supposed to celebrate?

Surprisingly… I AM celebrating.

Holidays of Future Past Prize Guide: South Pole to Heathrow

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Update time in TSTO!  Time for the first official update of the New Year!  As the latest mini-event in TSTO hit our towns…this time to celebrate the New Year…?  I guess Santa didn’t give EA that calendar I said they needed for Christmas. 

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the Holidays of Future Past questline, you’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

So let’s take a look at prizes 1-3, the South Pole, Lofts at Springfield Elementary, and the Heathrow Teleportation Departures…

Should I Spend Donuts on the Martian Vacation, Retired Homer, and Empty-Nest Marge?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Gather ’round the tapping device everyone, it’s update time in TSTO!  And there’s no time like the present for the residents of our pocket-sized Springfields to make New Year’s Resolutions…even if we are 16 days into 2020 already!    Of course, an all-new mini-event means all-new premium content in our stores, 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 Martian Vacation, Retired Homer, and Empty-Nest Marge to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this blast from holidays of future passed combo to your town…

Turbo Tappin’ Holidays of Future Past: Main Questline and Prizes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Update time in TSTO!  Time for the first official update of the New Year!  As the latest mini-event in TSTO hit our towns…this time to celebrate the New Year…?  I guess Santa didn’t give EA that calendar I said they needed for Christmas. 

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 your typical standard mini-event.  Follow the questline to unlock prizes and call it a day…until the next event.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just how to unlock all-new prizes…

Update Alert: Holidays of Future Past is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Fifteen days into 2020 and we have our first update of the roaring 20s!  To, what should be, no one’s surprise…it’s a mini-event!  What are we covering this time?  The future!  (insert loud groan from Patric)

Holidays of Future Past is officially live in our towns…and with it FINALLY arrives future Homer and Marge.  Two characters I was incredibly annoyed weren’t included with the previous future updates.

Remember, if you haven’t downloaded the update from the app store (it hit last night), you’ll need to do so in order to see the new content.  This update will remove the snow from your Springfield, so be prepared for that. And if you don’t see the update available try these steps:  Hard close your App store, clear your cache, restart your device.  When it reboots, open your app store and search Tapped Out.

What’s included with this event?  Let’s take a look….
Note: You’ll need the Simpson family free for a 6s task to kick things off. 

Holidays of Future Past Mini-Event Ends January 29th

Update Info (New Years 2020)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a heads up, there is a new update on the server.  This is (likely going to be) an App Store Update.  This will remove the Christmas splash screen…and possibly the snow. Not for sure that it’ll remove the snow, but good chance.  So take a photo of your town (via Town Portrait) while you can, to preserve its appearance in the snow.

From what I can tell, this is likely a mini-event.  That will run from tomorrow (Jan 15th) to Jan 29th.

It’s bath and bedtime for the little Addicts, so I’ll possibly have more info for you on this later tonight after they’ve gone to bed.  For now know that there is an update coming.  So there’s something to be excited about! 🙂

Light SPOILERS Below the fold… (Oh, and before you ask…because I know you will, I do NOT see the Golden Goose coming back with this one)

UPDATE: Yes, it is, in fact, an app store update.  And it does, in fact, remove the snow. So take a town portrait shot before updating…

Here’s the app store description:

Morning Musically-Minded, Medically-Minded, Masticators!

Over the past 600+ episodes, The Simpsons has taken us on an amazing journey involving music, science, and food to name a few concepts.

And what better way to start your week, then by discussing some of these concepts Monday morning?

So let’s get started this week by discussing one of my favourite bacterias, staphylococcus.

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…..

No new Simpsons tonight.  In America the NFL playoffs are on instead.   But did you watch last week’s episode? Thoughts?

Nothing new in TSTO. Abe’s in Toyland ended,  but wasn’t removed.  Can we expect to see an update this week?

How’s your designing coming?  What are you doing with your town? Did you take a photo of your Springfield in the snow? Share some photos in the comments below! (If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post)   

And finally, how was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

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!
