Creative Minds! (Contest Alert)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

You may remember back in the fall of 2016 (so just a couple of months ago) we had a few TSTO themed T-Shirts available for purchase.  This first, a Tapped Out Addicts shirt, was a huge hit but the second, a Keep Springfield Weird shirt, was a swing and a miss. But it was on the Keep Springfield Weird shirt post that several of you thought it might be a fun idea for y’all to design the next t-shirt Slogan….

So that’s exactly what we’re doing!  So get those creative juices flowing because it’s time for a Creative Minds T-Shirt Slogan contest!  Where your Slogan could be picked for the next Addicts T-Shirt BUT you can ALSO win Donuts!  And Who doesn’t like FREE DONUTS?!

Keep on reading for more (including how to enter, and what you can win)…

Main Event Contest: And the Winner Is…..

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

About a month ago we challenged you guys to design the next event in TSTO with our Main Event Contest and WOW did you guys respond!  We were COMPLETELY blown away by your submissions!  We then read each and every one of your entries over and over, trying hard to narrow it down to the finalists.  You guys had such AMAZING ideas and it was nearly impossible to narrow it down, but we finally picked 10 finalists.  Then we left it up to you guys, the AMAZING Addicts Community to vote for your favorite and pick the winner.

Well the votes have been cast and the totals are it…and all we can say is you guys had as hard of a time picking a winner as we did picking the finalists!  It was an insanely close battle!

So enough stalling from me…let’s get to the winners!!

The Main Event (Contest Alert!)

addicts-logo-new-3

So… it’s a new year and I’m sure I’m not alone in looking forward to what EA has in store for all of us as the months go by. While the future is sure to include episode tie-ins and the obligatory events that drive some of us to madness and/or celebration, I thought it might be fun to resurrect a contest idea we had way back in July 2014. You see, the team here at Addicts decided to give away donuts for creativity and the result was nothing short of amazing. Basically, a lot of people created ideas for the next big thing in the game and boy howdy did the Addicts show up with ideas.

Looking back at that contest, a lot of our ideas became realities in the game. I could toot my own horn and point out my example became Level 48 with Lurleen Lumpkin but just scrolling through the comments, so much made its way into the game.

Here are some highlights: Continue reading

Homer’s Quest for Enlightenment In Four Parts

enlightenment-main

Before we start this journey, I would like to ask those of you who despise anything that isn’t “directly game related” to turn away…go farm KEMs or simply just save yourself some time and emotional distress.  This is meant for the REST of you, who in a “grinding period” (as we are now) may be looking for a little insight, fun, and metaphysical diversion.

Fair enough? (Although I hate that phrase…something is either fair, or it isn’t).

This update/event has been one of the craziest, most divisive updates in recent memory, and for reasons that the programmers and writers could scarcely have imagined.  OK. Hold on. Who are we kidding here? They knew it was going to incite some discussion, and some controversy, but most likely didn’t expect such clear division between “isms” from the players. So many “isms” choose from…and so few answers.

But, as it is playing out, Homer has continued to lead us all on a spiritual quest for enlightenment (whether we wanted to go down some of the paths or not).  And in the final chapter (is there ever actually a “final” chapter as it pertains to everlasting life?) it’s mostly meant to be just, plain, fun.

Let’s break down Homer’s journey…
