In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?
Ah the Boardwalk. Not just the first word of an awesome HBO show, but a word defining a boarded promenade /pedestrian walkway bringing you extra enjoyment near a body of water. Atlantic City, Seaside Heights, Venice Beach, Coney Island and many more. Of course, Springfield has its very own version in Squidport and today, we’re going to look at the origin of the newest building we received for it… Bloaters at the Squidport. (As a bonus, I also ramble about other Squidport items.)
Level 41 is here (woohoo!) and with it comes the Duff Party Liner, an all new premium decoration for your water. Now, as with all new premium content you may be asking “Should I Spend Donuts On THIS?” Well before you hit that confirm button, lets break down the Pros and Cons of adding this floating party your Springfield!

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”.
Valentine’s Day has arrived in Springfield! But, with all of the new Valentine’s premium items it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add The Whale to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this Water Mammal to your Springfield.
Decoration: The Whale Donut Price: 300 donuts Dimensions: 7 x 14 Bonus: 7% more $$$ & XP Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +3000 Unique: No
Pros: -A BIG FRAKKIN WHALE IN SQUIDPORT!!!
-A HUGE Bonus Payout
-Animation: The Whale dives into the water and pops out while spouting water from the blowhole when tapped.
-Sound: Makes Whale calls when tapped.
Cons: -OH MY 300 DONUTS???!!
-Massive cost for an item that is not used by any characters or tasks in the games.
I did buy a Whale (well they are unlimited so I actually accidentally purchased two of them. Make sure YOUR confirm donuts spend is set to OFF!) It REALLY hurt losing 600 of my precious pink sprinkled sugary sweets. GAH! I do like the idea of a Giant Mammal in my Squidport. It does have amusing animation and a huge bonus…but honestly…I would say save your donuts on this one. You can purchase TWO Buildings w/characters for the cost it take for this ginormous water creature…with payouts and tasks. I just do not see a great benefit to it. Other premiums with better odds can also be purchased to equal the bonus payout and still hit under the 300 donut mark. So unless you are a completionist and HAVE to get every last item, I would save those precious donuts and pass on this one.
OOOOOOOOOh, EA gave us ANOTHER giant item for our Squidport. Yours getting a bit filled up now too? A Giant Whale!! Didn’t see that one coming, did you?
Whale now, I bet you are wondering why on earth did they stick this massive mammal into our game? Where did it come from? What does it have to do with the Simpsons? Well just sit tight, grab a nice cup of your favorite drink, snuggle up, and listen close as I tell a tall tale of a Whale.
Level 38 is here (woohoo!) and with it comes the KnightBoat, an all new premium decoration for your water. Now, as with all new premium content you may be asking “Should I Spend Donuts On THIS?” Well before you hit that confirm button, lets break down the Pros and Cons of adding this criminal chasing boat to your Springfield! Decoration: Knightboat Donut Price: 40donuts Unique?: No, you can have as many as you want Bonus: 2% (bonus cash and XP to all tasks) Bonus % Per Donut Spent: 0.05% Conform-o-Meter Points: 400Vanity Where Can I Place It?: Water only.
Final Thought: At 40 donuts and a 2% bonus the Knightboat is one of the best donut to bonus items you can purchase in TSTO. Plus it’s a BOAT, and gives you something new for your water.
Of course water in TSTO is one of the most expensive tiles of land to purchase, so it’s understandable if you don’t have enough water open to accommodate the Knightboat AND Squidport. But once some opens up it’s definitely a good investment!
Kind of a slow day here at Addicts as you can see from my silly attempt to sing an oldie with TSTO lyrics and failing. I had written a whole verse and chorus but scrapped it to spare you the silliness lol.
As we ramp up for the new year. I’m personally so excited for 2014 and all the new content we will have coming in the future. Of course New Year’s Eve is synonymous with champagne and maybe a little debauchery so I figured I’d hit the kegs here at Addicts and see what’s on tap for today…
I know a lot of folks probably are feeling a little tapped-out with the holiday event, so I thought I’d take a break from it all and talk about a neglected area of a lot of Springfields… Squidport. Whether you feel it is you or EA that is guilty of the neglect is up to you. Like most things in life, you are the master of your destiny (and opinion), but I thought I’d show you a neat little trick or two to spice up your Springfield Pier Area.
