Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend! I’m popping in with a quick reminder that the Thanksgiving Mini Event, Black Friday and Cyber Monday Mystery Boxes (as well as the Cyber Monday Special…Itchy and Scratchy) are all set to leave our game TOMORROW morning, November 27th. (Even though Cyber Monday stuff just hit)
This is different than past events because it’s ending on a Monday. So just want to give you all a quick weekend reminder to finish up those prize tracks, grab those premium items and prepare yourself because everything’s leaving on Monday. Out with Thanksgiving and in with *fingers crossed* Christmas!
Note: This is odd because the mini event ends on a Monday. We’re not sure if this means Christmas/Winter will be hitting on Tuesday or if they have something else up their sleeves. Personally, for the Addicts staff, the next big event hitting on the 28th feels early…but it’s EA so you never know!
It’s finally Turkey Day here in the US! And you know what that means…Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Apple and Pumpkin pie, football, stretchy pants and insane sales at the mall! (or in my case, for those who listened Episode 19 of Addicts Live, Mashed Potatoes, and Bread…check out Episode 19 to see how we all celebrate(d) Thanksgiving!))
Oh and a special Shoutout to my Mom and Dad who are celebrating their 38th Wedding Anniversary today. Despite what EA says, the Magic is very much alive in their marriage!
You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always check out the details of the Thanksgiving Mini Event here) as we take the day to celebrate the holiday with our families. Although…..Super Safi will likely be lurking around the comments, as Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving last month. So like a lot of you, Safi will be working today too!
And yes, the mystery boxes hit today. We’ll have breakdowns for each box, like we always do. But be patient. No rush to get everything, it’s not going anywhere today.
However, we couldn’t let a day dedicated to being thankful go by without a special THANK YOU to YOU…our AMAZING readers! We are so thankful for each and every one of you that take the time to read our posts and comment. So from Patric, Wookiee, Safi and myself…THANK YOU!! You guys rock and we couldn’t do this without you!
Here at Addicts we’ve all been blessed in so many ways and we hope you have too. In that spirit we’d like to invite you to take a moment and let us know in the comments below what you’re thankful for this Thanksgiving! We can’t wait to see what you say!
Well, before we start to carve into the Turkey (or Bunducken) we’d like to take just one more moment of your time. As I mentioned above, today’s a day to reflect on all you’re thankful for in life & in that spirit, if you can, as we do each year we’d like to invite you to donate to a charity that’s near and dear to our hearts, Friends of Buyijja. A fantastic charity founded by our own Patric to deliver “Unconditional Support for the Education and Welfare of Children…in an effort to deliver hope and opportunity.” You can find out more about Friends of Buyijja by clicking the link below, and if you can we’d like to encourage you to make a donation to an amazing charity that’s doing amazing work. Right now they’re working on a round of school supplies for the Children…
Gooble Gobble Tappers! It’s nearly Turkey Day here in America…where our favorite yellow family is located…which means time for an all-new mini event themed around Turkey! Or in this case…not eating Turkey. Of course all new anything in Springfield means there are items back in our stores…just asking us to drop our sprinkles.
Of course with that limited-time label, it can be tempting 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 any of this returning content to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…
