Addicts Open Thread

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part, you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

No new Simpsons tonight, but don’t worry they’ll be back next week with a new episode! (the Christmas one…)

Still, no Christmas update in TSTO, do you think it’ll hit this week?  What do you think we’ll see content-wise?

How’s your holiday decorating/shopping going?  Finishing up?  Just getting started?  Or waiting until the night before to do it all?

How’s your designing coming?  What are you doing with your town? Share some photos in the comments below! (If you need a refresher on how to add photos to the comments check out this post)  

And finally, how was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of! (Just no politics, it never ends well)  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Friday Filler – I May Have Killed Christmas

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

I am starting to suspect that the lack of a Christmas Event in TSTO may be my fault.  I know…I know…I’m just another blogger with an opinion. But, the correlation between game play and real life is starting to make me lose my freakinshirt!

This is the first year…ever…that there are some huge changes around my favorite holiday in our household…I mean huge.

Just like TSTO, “something is off” when it comes to tradition, and following any kind of regular schedule.  And like TSTO, we are waaaaaaay behind on checking the boxes for this year’s celebrations.

But, even more terrifying to someone like me, who loves Christmas, is that it is starting to feel like the boxes are not only not being checked…but are being removed by a power outside of my control!  It’s as if TSTO and life have suddenly changed, in ways that I never expected, nor really wanted! And, it may be MY FAULT!!

Springfield Showoff: All American Auction

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 sometimes find ourselves 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 and brag about it to the world. We want you to! Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

All American Auction (Thanksgiving 2019) Prize Guide: Paul Bunyan

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Nothing like the holidays to bring a little crazy to our pocket-sized towns!  As the latest mini-event in TSTO hit our towns recently…this time to celebrate Thanksgiving.  Or more specifically Black Friday! At least this one is seasonally appropriate…and should bring us nicely into Christmas! (Almost Tinsel Time! 🎄🎄🎄 )

Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes.  For each of the parts of the All American Auction questline, you’ll have to earn  via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.

So let’s take a look at the final All American Auction Prize…Paul Bunyan…

All American Auction (Thanksgiving 2019) Premium Questline: CJ Pro Bidder

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Nothing like the holidays to bring a little crazy to our pocket-sized towns!  As the latest mini-event in TSTO hit our towns recently…this time to celebrate Thanksgiving.  Or more specifically Black Friday! At least this one is seasonally appropriate…and should bring us nicely into Christmas!

Of course, as with all events, a questline comes with it to help move us through the ins and outs of the event…and unlock all of the prizes.  As was mentioned on the rundown post this mini-event is your typical standard mini-event (with a couple of twists).  Follow the questline to unlock prizes and call it a day…until the next event.

With this mini-event, one new premium character was introduced. In addition to helping with event currency, CJ Pro Bidder comes with his own, short, individual questline, so let’s take a look at the full dialogue questline now.

Friday Filler – Giving Thanks Where Thanks Is Due

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

There’s one out of the way.  Because thanks is what this entire post is about.

And yes…the neighborhood turkeys are multiplying, and oblivious to the dangers of the season. THEY should be thankful that it is illegal to shoot them within city limits.  But, I have a sneaking suspicion they are acutely aware of this fact.

But, back to my thankfulness…

It has been brought up to me recently, that “these informational posts are great, and would be even better if a bit of the judgemental close-minded conjecture was slightly reduced…Alissa is my favourite hard worker because she sticks more to the facts and doesn’t lace a good chunk of her posts with subjective intense opinions…”   

Yikes. Words hurt HT! But you did make me realize that this time of the year we need to work on being thankful, and full of grace. In this fractured world, with so many opinions about everything, it is easy to start a conversation with the negative. Or even worse…do the “but, flip flop.”

“I’m very thankful that there is still a TSTO, BUT…”

See? It’s the “thankful, but syndrome.”  So not being truly thankful or penitent!
