Addicts Announcement: Magic Kingdoms

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in with a quick announcement.  A couple of weeks ago Gameloft released a new game called Disney Magic Kingdoms. Many of you have been discussing it in the Open Threads, and many of you have been saying you play it but wish there was an Addicts site for it…..

Well…now there is!   Continue reading

TSTO Anonymous… Bridging the Generation Gap?

Well hey there Addicts?  How’s life?  The Christmas event is over and I don’t know about all of you but I’m exhausted.  Seems like the perfect moment for another meeting of TSTO Anon.

Ah crud… someone broke the coffee pot.  Well, if y’all want to hit Starbucks in the Springfield Mall real quick or head on over to Tsarbucks in Little Ukraine, I completely understand.  I can wait…. Continue reading

TSTO Anonymous… The Birth of an Addict

Well hello there Addicterinos, Tapaholics and TSTO Junkies,

I find it hilarious that none of these terms seem offensive to me.  What a cool thing it is that being “addicted” to a mobile app is something we treasure here on this site.  In a world full of some really uncool and bumerrific stuff, there are so many worse things than really, really, really liking a silly, little game based on The Simpsons.

TSTO Anonymous – 6 Dec 13

Hey there.  Been a while since we had a meeting and for that I apologize.  With all the updates, vacations and other assorted trivia, sometimes life can just get away from you while you take things one tap at a time.

TSTO Anon: Bouncing regrets (and other ramblings) on a trambopoline

TSTO Anon Door

Welcome back Addicts to the bi-monthly-ish meeting of The Simpsons Tapped Out Anonymous!

It’s good to see some familiar faces and of course newcomers are always welcome.  I just hope you guys didn’t come for the punch… it appears we’re all out today.

TSTO Anon 15Nov

Fair warning before we get started, today I’m a rambling man aka Wookiee.

Ever feel like you’re stuck on life’s trambopoline?

2D 101: Decorations

Happy 2D Tuesday Addicterinos!

Bunny and I have written a lot of words about how we make our 2D creations. Thought I would mix it up a little this week and just show the different decorations which can be used for various colors.

2D Decs

While this list is not all inclusive, it is most of the decorations we use to make our art.  I think I can speak for Bunny and I when I say we seriously want EA to come out with even more simple decorations of different colors to expand the art we can make.

I wanted to keep this post short but also wanted to show off all the cool Halloween-inspired 2D that was done this event as well as some of the decorations used in each.

Here are mine:

Wookiee Hallo2D

And here are the amazing 2Ds from the beautiful and talented Bunny:

Bunny Hallo2D

Well, I hope everyone’s week has started well and continues on strong to the weekend!  Maybe this will spark a couple more ideas for any one interested in creating some 2D art in their own town.  Y’all stay classy… Wookiee out!

Whatever you are, be a good one.

Well, hello there friends.  You know, there’s nothing like a casual stroll through all your neighborinos towns.  So many cool things to see.  Building placement, decorating finesse, 2D/3D amazingness, Abraham Lincoln….

Wait, did I just say Lincoln?  How’d he get there?  Can I get him?  How the heck does he have anything to do with The Simpsons?

Tapped-Out-Lincolns-Cabin

Well, I’m here today to try and answer these questions for those of you who may have noticed the 16th President of the United States wandering around in Springfield.

What the Heck is a Donkishbroomcken?

Wow… that’s one heck of a word in the title.  Hi… Wookiee here.  Sorry about the giant word but it came to mind while writing about one of my favorite Treehouse of Horror moments.  Previously here at Addicts, the episode this came from was shown in two different posts: A pumpkin house ramble by yours truly and this great walkthrough by Alissa the Amazing.

Sad fact about being so crazy busy blogging about ghosts and gremlins and GOO (Oh my!) is that not everything covered showcases ALL the amazingness in the game.  The Suzanne quest is really funny but, for reasons only EA knows, did not show off what I consider to be her best task.  This 12 hour task brings this Wookiee joy unimaginable.

Suzanne the Witch has a 12 hour joint task with Homer which shows off one of my favorite parts of the “Scary Tales Can Come True” segment of TOH XI.

What a Wookiee Wants… HALLOWEEN EDITION

Hey there Ghostbusters!  Which one are you?  I always was partial to Dr. Egon Spengler.

ghostbusters

Anywho… every other friday I get a soap box to tell you what I think should be added to the game and for the first time in quite a while, I find myself sated.

What’s that you say?  How can I have nothing that I want?  Well, I’ll tell you if you really want to know.

I Got Booty, Yes I Do…I Got Booty, HOW ‘BOUT YOU??!!

Bunny here hopping in while I am giggling uncontrollably. This is just, yet again, another sign that EA creators of this game are dominantly MALE. YES EA, I AM TALKING TO YOU! 😛

I appreciate Maude brought in. Booberella was more a “girl for the guys”, but I would appreciate even more females (lil Maggie too). I still want more. Anywho…my point. As I am tappin and squishing and haunting and SQUIRREL all throughout this game, I am picking up on the “subtle” lil things EA drops in the game. They do like to continually add in those lil jabs and one-liners that keep me giggling as I play. My latest lil giggle…Gremlins Booty. Now they could’ve named it anything…anything at all…but they chose Booty. Why? Well in my own lil head, I see a bunch of guys sitting round the conference room giggling at the thought of making the Gremlins “grab some Booty”. I also hear them saying things like, “How much Booty did you get last night…I grabbed myself so much Booty from my neighbor…I need more Booty…” and on and on and on. Now maybe it is just the fact I hung around boys my entire life (loved being a tomboy), or the fact I have them around me all the time now…but for some reason I am just giggling as my mind wanders on this one.

Now for some fun. So far the highest amount of Booty I have grabbed **snicker** is 352 at one time. How much is your highest? Feel free to add a few pics. I would like to see how much Booty everyone is getting. 😛
