Santa’s Wonderland Box Glitch

Update: This appears to have been fixed!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick note that it appears that the Santa’s Wonderland box is glitched.  It seems as though, for some players, when you still have 1 item left in the box it disappears.  This shouldn’t happen, and if it’s happened to you it’s a glitch.

The best thing I can tell you to do is report it to EA.  You can do so here. Hopefully, this will be patched soon.

Christmas 2018 Prize Guide: Act 4, Prizes 4 and 5 Toy Fortress and Greyhound Sleigh

Ho Ho Ho Holiday Tappers!

Bust out the tinsel and be sure to hang those stockings by the chimney with care because Christmas time is in the air! That’s right my friends, Christmas (and snow, lots and lots of snow) has hit our pocket-sized towns!

This year EA is trying something different, as I’ve laid out in this post, in that Christmas 2018 consists of multi-events.  Basically, the Simpson family will host four stories to be told over the course of December with a new story releasing each week.  As we’re taken through each story a series of prizes are released to correspond with the theme of the story.  For Week 4, Act 4, we’re following a Polar Express tale, as told by Maggie (through Homer), and the prizes we unlock all fit into the visit to the North Pole theme.

So let’s take a look at the final two prizes this week, the Toy Fortress and Greyhound Sleigh…

Showoff Reminder: Christmas 2018

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A couple of weeks ago we announced the next Springfield showoff featuring your Christmas/winter designs and here is your reminder post.  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff featuring your Christmas/Winter inspired designs!  So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

Finish up those designs and send them to us ASAP!  We’ll be putting up the Showoff post, featuring your designs on WEDNESDAY JANUARY 2nd, 2019….so you’ve got just under a week to finish up your designs if you’d like to be featured.

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm EDT Tuesday, January 1st, 2019.  Can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.

You can send your designs in two ways…either post a link to the image in the comments on this post (or the showoff announcement post) or you can email them to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  We won’t be pulling images from anywhere else, so please if you want to be featured either submit in the comments below or email your images to us.

Note: PLEASE try to limit your submissions to only 1-2 of your favorite screenshots.  We like to try and let everyone showoff their town but it becomes difficult when some of you are sending in 7-10 images.  Pick your favorite areas and send them in (or if you stitch photos together, that works too).  We’ll try our best to get EVERYONE in, but please understand that sometimes we miss a photo or two.  If we miss you one week, we’ll try really hard to make sure we get you in the next week.  You’re always welcome to showoff your town, at any time, on our Flickr page.  We know a lot of you have awesome towns that you want to show off, but please try to stick with this week’s theme.  Remember, this isn’t a contest.  There’s nothing to win.  It’s just a fun way to showoff your town and get some design inspiration from your fellow Addicts.  🙂   

Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff?  Post your images  in the Comments below or email us your screenshots at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Another day, another event in Springfield as Christmas has fallen upon our pocket-sized towns! And it wouldn’t be an event without a Mystery Box, now would it?  Of course EA’s go a box for this occasion!  They literally have a box for everything! And we’ve finally stumbled onto the box full of Holiday items!  Just in time for the holidays…

This is a premium box full of your chance to get those Holiday premium character/building/decorations you may have missed out on in the past.  By now we should all be familiar with how Mystery Boxes work, so let’s jump to the breakdown of what’s inside…
