Pageant Stage Troubles? WATCH THIS!

Guys…I’ve addressed the Pageant Stage “issue” in two other posts now.  So this is post number 3.  THREE POSTS!  If you haven’t received the Pageant Stage and think you’ve completed all of the tasks for it (and now you’re cursing out EA because it MUST be some kind of glitch in your game) please watch this….

I’m no longer going to answer questions about this issue.  If you don’t want to watch a 1-minute video and you don’t want to read numerous posts and comments on it, I can’t help you.  If I could physically climb through the screen into your real life and play your game for you I would.  But since I can’t this will have to do.

Thank you!

Oh and if you’re stuck on the last part of the questline (AFTER you’ve been awarded the stage), you need to have Milhouse, Ralph AND Lisa free to complete the ensemble task.  It’s a joint task for all three of them.

 

Christmas 2018: Turbo Tappin’ Week 2, A Savage Thaw

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Grab your Santa hats and break out the tinsel because it’s Christmas time in Springfield! Yes the annual TSTO Christmas event has arrived in our pocket-sized towns, covering our usual perfect weather towns with a fresh blanket of bright, white, snow!

While the Christmas event, and snow, are annual the structure of this event is anything but!  This is the first major event in Springfield that’s structured like a mini-event.  Christmas consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the Simpsons Christmas Special!

For Act 2 we’re tasked with following Bart’s Christmas story…all about a pair of buddy cops about the bust open a Christmas case.  Each part of the story will unlock another prize themed for Bart’s story.  So let’s take a look at the details behind Week 2 and the Turbo Tappin’ Version for Bart’s Christmas Story…

Christmas 2018: A Simpsons Christmas Special Act 2 is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast which means it’s officially time to start Act 2 (week 2) of A Simpsons Christmas Special!

Now if you remember, week 1 ended with Bart declaring it was his turn to tell a story…

Christmas Is Canceled Pt. 2
Auto starts

Marge: What a lovely, interesting, un-tedious story! Don’t you agree, Homer?
Homer: *banging on the TV* Work, damn you! Show me a show! I don’t care which one! Anything is better than this family sharing and caring!
Marge: Homer!
Homer: What? Oh, uh right. Loved your story, Lisa. Five stars. I laughed, I cried… I somehow got through it…
Bart: I’m afraid Dad is right, Lisa. Your story was objectively awful. Christmas may never recover.
Lisa: Like you could do better?
Bart: Naturally. Because I know the three elements of a good story: action, violence, and mild cursing. Gather round, chumps, as I spin a tale of such Christmas delight, you’ll throw Lisa out on the street and forget she ever existed.
Marge: Hmm. I hope it’s not THAT good.

And now, here’s the kick off dialogue you’ll see this morning (and a look at what’s in store for Act 2)

Should I Spend Donuts on the North Pole Bundle, Festive Bundle, or Christmas Market Bundle?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Grab your Santa hats and break out the tinsel because it’s Christmas time in Springfield! Yes the annual TSTO Christmas event has arrived in our pocket-sized towns, covering our usual perfect weather towns with a fresh blanket of bright, white, snow!   Of course, by now, we all know that a new event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with returning limited-time premium items to tempt us.

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the North Pole Bundle, Festive Bundle, or Christmas Market Bundle to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these bundled throwbacks to your town…

Christmas 2018: A Simpsons Christmas Special Act 1 is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, it was teased (by accident) a few weeks ago…

And yesterday we received the App Store update that brought snow to Springfield!  (if you haven’t downloaded it, do so.  But remember it’s MASSIVE. So make sure you’re on WiFi)

And now it’s time!  It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast which, in the words of Elsa, means “Let the holidays begin!”  If I had a Yule Bell I’d ring it… (sorry Riley’s been watching A LOT of Olaf’s Frozen Adventure these days…)

Things will kick off with an AUTOMATIC dialog start with the Simpson family…

I’m working my way through this, and will continuously be updating this post.  So continue to refresh and check back for new details.  Once the post is completely updated i’ll add (Updated and Complete) to the title.

More Christmas Teasers…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Another little hint at what might arrive this Christmas.  A few weeks ago it appears EA accidentally released the wrong App Store description.  They quickly fixed it, but some folks were able to grab a screenshot of it (Shoutout to Tapper72234 for emailing the screenshot to us)….

So combining this description with the Hiss-mas teaser, what do you think it all means?
