Where Did THAT Come From – Boxingham Palace

Anyone besides me think of the word war and want to add a “G” in front of it?

Anywho… with all the new stuff that came with the Clash of Clones event you may find yourself wondering just where all the items come from.  The easy answer is the game it’s making fun of but not everything is from THAT game. Some of it comes from the Best. Show. Ever. For this edition of WDTCF, I thought we’d take a look at the origin of Boxingham Palace.

Diary of a Wookiee: Building Castles in Spite of EA

I don’t know about you but I am finding myself smiling more and more every time I visit the Village of Wookieeton and find smoking remnants of buildings. While strategy based games aren’t my forte or really my favorite, I decided early on in this event to make the most of it.  If nothing else, this update has rekindled my creative fire.  My neighbors are active and so is my imagination… life is good.

I’m normally a pretty positive person but I do have one big gripe with this update.  I’m sure by now a lot of tappers have gotten their 3 castles up to Level 10 and found out that the accouterments for Lisa and Bart’s come with a premium price tag.  I was right there with ya being pretty ticked about the development and wondering what the heck I was going to do with just 3 towers, 8 walls, a gate and castle?

Where Did THAT Come From – Two Story Outhouse

Open bomb bay doors… look out below!

Hey hey friends!  It seems EA had some sneaky surprises waiting for us and delivered on more items for our TSTO wargame.  A bunch of different items arrived and as always, I get the privilege to dish on the origins of them.  Today I thought we’d look at the Two Story Outhouse.  For the cost of 3000 Elixir, it boosts your Vanity rating by 800 points and as a nice bonus, can be placed on the grass, pavement, beach and Squidports of your town.  Makes sense, people gotta see a man about a wallaby in all sorts of places.

From the Mouth of Addicts: NerdAid

Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out!  This week’s post sort of comes to us from reader alunited1961.  Besides reading this great site, Al is one of our friends over at the TSTO social community tapped-out.co.uk. All three addicts on this site are members and often, we enjoy witty conversations, etc. over there when we find extra time away from this site.

Al and I started a short convo here about Nerd rights which found it’s way over to TOuk and I enjoyed it so much, I wanted to share.  It also highlights the unfortunate plight of our spectacled warriors during this period some of us have come to think of as TSTOwar.

Where Did THAT Come From – Guillotine


The TSTO Clone Wars continue and last week EA gave us even more stuff for the battlefront.  Of course, at first pass you might think none of it could possibly be from the Best. Show. Ever. because the event is mocking another game but you’d be wrong.  For this origin post, we’ll be taking a look at the instrument of decapitation commonly associated with Medieval Europe and Revolutionary France… the guillotine.

Lisa recycles so why can’t EA? A decoration comparison.

(Sung to the tune of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”)

Take trash out to the trash can,
Make sure to re-cy-cle.
Use less papers and paper towels,
I turn off the water and never waste towels.
So it’s root, root, root for the green team,
If we don’t live green it’s a shame.
For it’s reduce, reuse and re-cy-cle,
In our clean world game.

What’s up my friends?  Well… it appears in TSTO Land, EA has decided to go green when they’re creating new stuff for our games.  What’s that mean?  Click more and see.

Where Did THAT Come From – Hot Air Balloon

99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Hielt man für Ufos aus dem All
Darum schickte ein General
‘ne Fliegerstaffel hinterher
Alarm zu geben, wenn es so wär
Dabei war’n da am Horizont
Nur 99 Luftballons

Oh hey there friends!  Just singing and working here in the attic.  Nice of you to drop by.  I guess since you’re here it’s only fair to share the latest info I’ve been compiling for the Clash of Clones WDTCF series.  Let’s dive right in and check out the origins for the Hot Air Balloon, shall we?

Springfield Showoff: Pillage and Plunder

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we find ourselves sometimes forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to.

So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU.

So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Weekend Update: August 31st to September 6th

“My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria mori.”

~ Wilfred Owen, Dulce Et Decorum Est, 1917

With all the TSTO War going on, it brings to mind some of the great war poetry I’ve read in my life (quite a bit during my last semester of college).  I thought I’d start this Weekend Update with a little culture.  I highly recommend Mr. Owen’s stuff and will save you from any more of my thoughts about real war.

Moving back to why you’re probably here… the Weekend Update… Wookiee here and this was the last week at TSTO Addicts.
