Friday Filler – Deja Vu All Over Again

Thank Grog It’s Friday!

Yes. As the song by “The New Pornographers” says, “We’ve Been Here Before.”

For many of us, this feels like “Deja Vu all over again…”  I love the phrase, which is attributed to Yogi Berra, my favorite Yankee of all time, on and off of the field. He was famous for his mangled use of phrases, (see some here) which always made sense….while being hilariously ambiguous. Two of my favorites are, “Always go to other people’s funerals, or they won’t come to yours,” and “nobody goes there anymore…it’s too crowded.” But I digress…

But, if it feels like we have seen “Moe’s Ark” before….it’s because we have. Kinda…

If you played the the “Christmas/Winter/Solstace” (it was convoluted) update in December 2015, then you likely already have “Moe’s Petting Zoo” in your Springfield.

So this entire event, may feel a bit like, “We’ve done this before.” Because, we have…kinda.  But, in many respects, I’m going to have to say that like it or not (I’m not a huge fan), EA is listening to us once again, at least about a handful of things that we were complaining about. In this case, it’s not so much the content, as the way they played their hand(s) at placating some of the problems.

Moe’s Ark Act I – Prize Guide – Discount Lion Safari Entrance


There is a whole story arc that comes with the Ark, but none of it is actually related to the “Ark” mythology, thankfully. This all has to do with Moe’s ability to snatch animals, and have the good citizens of Springfield do their best to build, man, and promote the Springfield Zoo, which is not to confused with Moe’s Petting Zoo…even it had nothing to do with Moe being petted.

The first “Major Prize” on the Prize Track is the Discount Lion Safari Entrance
Let’s take a look…

Moe’s Ark Is Live! Act 1 Details and Rundown (Updated and Complete)

Yup the servers may be down for some of you.  This shouldn’t be a surprise at this point.  Since moving the update time to 10am ET they’ve crashed nearly every time a new act hits…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s update Wednesday!  Woohoo!  Who’s excited for all new content in TSTO?  After all that downtime (seriously was a SLOW July) everyone should be excited for something…anything to hit our games!

Well…that something has arrived!  As Moe’s Ark is now officially live in our Pocket-Sized towns! Yes, that’s right my friends log into your Springfield’s to see all the zoo raising fun.  Or just to see what items are available for you to throw donuts at…

Anywho, remember this was an app store update that hit our games YESTERDAY.  So if you didn’t download the update check your app store for it now…we’ll wait.  (if you don’t see it listed in your update section try searching the store for Tapped Out)

Waiting…..

Everyone got it?  Good. Great. Grand.  Let’s get started…

As I’ve mentioned several times over the last few days, this update kicks off with a task for THREE of the Simpsons to complete.  So be sure you have at least 3 free. And more details are below the fold…
