I Didn’t Update Out of Christmas….

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So how many of you have actually updated to the Christmas removal of TSTO today?  How many of you are still waiting until it forces you to do so so that you can collect every last Gift Card and free prize you can?  If you’re in the second category this post is for you!


Here’s the deal….normally friend requests are to only go on our Add Neighboreenos page HOWEVER we’re going to make a LIMITED TIME exception.  If you’re a Tapper who did not update out of Christmas because you’re hoping to collect the last xxx gift cards you need for the Personal Prizes OR you’re a Tapper who didn’t update out of Christmas to help your neighbors earn the prizes then Add your Origin name to the comments below.  And ONLY those Tappers that haven’t update out of Christmas please. This post is designed to help those looking to collect the last bit of Gift Cards to get them, and if you’ve already updated your game today you’ll be of no use to them.  Once you have a newer version of TSTO your neighbors with the older version can’t visit you….so you won’t help them earn more gift cards.

Hopefully, this helps all Tappers earn the last little bit until you’re forced (and you will at one point be forced) to update your game.

Good Luck!

Tapped Out on Christmas: What to Tap Now? Neighbor-eeno Guidance

Hey Howdy Hey New Year Tappers!

How’s 2014 treating you so far?  Sticking to those resolutions…2 days in?  🙂

I’ve been noticing more and more in the comments many tappers asking what’s next?  You’ve completed the Gift Card prizes (although if you haven’t…don’t panic you still have plenty of time…until next Tuesday to be exact), won all of the wheel prizes (again if you haven’t don’t panic…or feel one of the F words…you still have plenty of time) and you have no clue what to do until the next update.

Should you still be tapping Neighbor-eeno’s houses with Gift Cards?  Should you still be dropping gift bags?  Should you still be tapping your own presents?  Well over the next couple of days we’re going to take a look at things you can do to prevent yourself from becoming Tapped Out on Christmas and still keep your head in the game.

Today’s tip?  Some Neighbor-eeeno Guidance.  Let’s take a look at some ways you can help your friends and neighbors and prevent the Christmas Burn Out…

The Gift of Giving!

So sorry this was a bit delayed. Data frakking can be intense, all those zeros and ones and my geek girl in me gets all giddy and lost (not to mention I was a lil busy stormin the EA castle). Heheheh. Anywho, I wanted to help you all get some clarification on the payouts and drops for the gifts. So without further ado…

So for this fun and exciting Christmas 2013 event, EA has chosen to give us additional goodies and prizes in the form of a Wheel. Everyone likes to spin the wheel, right? I know I do. Everytime I go to any event, I just gotta grab a hold of that thing and SPIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN it. ( I blame the Price Is Right.) Well now everyone has a chance to spin the wheel too.

No Grinching Around This Christmas: The Lowdown on Gil, Grumple & Gifts

Hey Howdy Hey Gift Grabbers!

You enjoying the first 3 days of the Christmas Update?  Are you staying on track with your Gift Card Grabbing? (check out Bunny’s Calendar to see if you’re on the right track)

We’ve been reading each and every one of your comments (we LOVE hearing from you guys, keep them coming!) and I wanted to take a moment to address a couple of questions that have come up over and over again in the comments.  A lot of you are asking “How Do I Get the Grumple?”, “I Want to Buy Donuts, Any truth to the Gil rumor?” & “Is EA planning any Christmas surprises? Like Thanksgiving.”  Well….we’ve finally gotten answers from our resident IT nerd and we’re happy to share all of the Addicts confirmed (from game files) info with our favorite fellow Addicts!

First up…let’s talk everyone’s favorite salesman Gil.  According to the files (viewed with our own bloodshot eyes) Gil WILL be making an appearance this event with a DONUT OFFER! (woohoo!)  It won’t be a discounted donut offer instead it looks as though it will be a bonus donut offer.  Similar to the deal that ran last Christmas, offering 25% more donuts with every pack. (so 12 donuts will become 15)  Looks as though it’s a one day only special and will ONLY be available on December 25th.  So if you have plans to drop some “dough” on those pink frosted donuts, you may just want to wait until Christmas to do so.  You’ll get more frosting for your dough!

Next up the deal with the Grumple and special bonus planned.  Warning SPOILERS ahead.  If you want to be surprised (and see what Santa brings you) don’t click read more…but if you’re like me…and enjoy searching for your Christmas presents before they’re under the tree click read more to find out what Santa’s bringing!   Continue reading

Turbo Tappin’: Christmas 2013

In case you’ve been living under a rock (or in Shelbyville) it’s snowing is Springfield! That means it’s time to Turbo Tap the update! Here’s your Turbo Tappin’ quick walkthrough guide for the Christmas 2013 update (for those of you who LOVE the full dialogue, don’t worry it’s coming soon too):
Note:this is a walkthrough for just the main quest line at this time. Due to the nature of the Christmas update, and the many parts to it, we’ll add any additional walkthroughs separately. So basically this is the walkthrough for the main quest (free) version. Enjoy!

Things kick off with a dialogue between Homer and Lisa, discussing Christmas and a special delivery on the Simpson’s doorstep. Continue reading
