Christmas 2018 Week 2 Is About to Start

Note: If you’re having trouble with unlocking your Pageant booth it’s not the game…it’s you.  Please read this post.  There’s even a video to watch on that explains it.  I can’t help you if you don’t want to read or watch a video…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow morning, Wednesday, December 12th, Week 2 (Act 2) of Christmas will be starting.  The official start time is 10am ET (1500 GMT).

While the Week 1 questline won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Week 2 starts, some of the premium items will be leaving the store.

So if you planned to purchase Kathy or the Acrobat (SIBs linked) do so before they leave our games tomorrow morning. (It doesn’t appear that they will help with Week 2, they’re unique to week 1)

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Week 2 to start…

As we know Bart will be telling the story during Week 2.  Characters needed for week 2 tasks are:
Homer
Lisa
Bart
Marge
Grampa
Maggie
Wiggum
Krusty
Mr. Burns
Martin
Nelson

There will also be three new premium characters introduced during week 2, all three of those characters will be able to help with the currency earning.  (524 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase all three characters)

And that’s it my friends!  Be prepared for Week 2 to start up tomorrow morning!

Thoughts on week 1?  Ready for week 2?  Excited to see where Bart takes the story?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

New Year’s Eve Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well here we are, the last day of 2017!  364 days of TSTO down..just this last one to go!

I know many of you will be spending the day (And night) with your family and friends celebrating the New Year…and of course, it IS Sunday, so I thought it’d be a perfect time for a New Year’s Eve Open Thread!

Chat about the event, your Christmas, your NYE plans, resolutions or the year in TSTO (we have a special year in review episode of Addicts live that will be up for you tomorrow)…or anything else you can think of!  Just no Add me requests…those should go here. And as always just keep it PG.

Happy New Year!  And remember, whatever you’re doing…be safe!

Bring on 2018 tappers!

Christmas Eve Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well it’s finally here…Christmas Eve! And that means Santa’s coming…tonight!  Woohoo!

Don’t forget to put out the Cookies and milk tonight, you wouldn’t want to end up on the Naughty List!

I know many of you will be spending today with your families or doing last minute shopping…and of course, it IS Sunday, so I thought it’d be a perfect time for a Christmas Eve Open Thread!

Chat about the event, Santa coming to Springfield (have you got him yet?), your Christmas plans…or anything else you can think of!  Just no Add me requests…those should go here. And as always just keep it PG.

Merry Christmas Eve!

P.S.  I’ll be spending the day with my in-laws out of state, so I’ll try to moderate when I can…my apologies for any delays.  Special shoutout and MAJOR thanks to Super Safi for moderating comments as he can today!

P.P.S. If you need help with Act 2 of the event, most of the info can be found on our Christmas 2017 Page.  So check that out to see if your question has already been answered 🙂

And, as has been my tradition since the Tiny Addict was born, here’s our Christmas card this year (you can always see more pics of the Tiny Addict on my Instagram Page here)

Welp….

Update: It’s hit the files.  I don’t see it in app stores yet, but it’s in the files.  So update coming soon…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Welp, it’s just after 6pm here on the east coast (although just after 3pm at EA HQ) and still no update.  Either EA is still working on getting the update released or they’re doing the ultimate troll job on us.  We’ll have to wait to see which one it is….

Meanwhile, I’m still here, checking away…so I’ll let you know if/when I see anything.

Just checked again…as of 6:10pm ET no update. Hang in there, we’re all in this together…

Addicts Question Corner: Fed Detail Redux, Stuck Tasks, Crashing & More!

By Reader Request…we’re pinning this post to the top of the site for a short while so more players can see the details on Feds.  So if you have questions on Feds…this is the post for you. 🙂
12/9 update:  Today’s update added a locked task for Santa and  the Kwik-E-Mart now no longer earns a “tax” rate.  We think it has to do with done crashing issues and the ScratchRs.  We’re digging into this a bit further…but it is widespread.  Yea

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

With a new event upon us…everyone has lots of questions regarding what to do and when. We do try to answer each one individually, but I thought everyone could benefit from the answers to these questions.  So it’s time for another addition of Addicts Question Corner….

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas…

Hey there Hoppereenos. It is just about that time. Time where our towns start to get a lil sprinkle of white. The characters get all silly. Sparkly lights shine round the town.

Turkey Time Is (almost) Over, Is Santa Coming?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder to you all…it looks like the Thanksgiving update is set to end tomorrow (12/2/14)..the official end time that we see is 0800GMT (3am EST).    Could this mean Christmas will be arriving to TSTO?  Who knows what EA has up their sleeves, but what we can tell you is once the Thanksgiving event is over…it’s over.  That means all of those limited-time decorations, buildings and characters that you haven’t purchased, will *poof* disappear!

So just what items will be disappearing tomorrow? Let’s take a look… Continue reading

WDTCF – Springfield Skating Rink

Well hello there holiday tapperinos!

Wookiee back with another where did THAT come from. You may have noticed I got all hip and shortened the words into a spiffy abbreviation. Cool, eh? As it seems that recently some of our ideas have been catching on in other blogs, we figured we’d do every one a favor and shorten it for future “borrowing”. Nothing says the holidays like gift giving, right? Since Bunny coined the phrase, I decided to go all military abbreviation crazy and kick things up a notch lol. Seriously though, I’m probably just too lazy to type the words. You know how I hate to type words.

So you ready for this round? You really want to know just where that Skating Rink comes from?  Well, before you all line up like Oliver begging for more, I’ll just get started. Besides, none of you really want to hear my Artful Dodger impression anyways.
