Should I Spend Donuts On the Blocko Dungeon Set and Blocko Angelica Button?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Let the games begin!  After a long hiatus, we finally have a major event in Springfield!  Game of Games has arrived and it looks to be a game fest of nerdy proportions! Of course, an all-new event means all new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

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 Blocko Angelica Button and the Blocko Dungeon Set to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this brick-like me combo to your town…

TSTO Musings About Multi-Events

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Another TSTO Thursday and as usual I have some thoughts for you.  This time I’m musing about…multi-events. With the latest update hitting our games I thought it was time to weigh in with my thoughts on the infamous new event format.  And of course, I’ve got a bunch of thoughts so let’s get to ‘em…

Game of Games – Calendar and Math to Get It All – FULL EVENT

Well…well…well…
So a little taunting (OK…a LOT!), and the fact that the writers had to “face the public” with their big E3 panel on Simpsons related games…and we FINALLY got a REAL Event! At some point it stops being a coincidence…and just a result.

I know many of you are complaining about the multi-event format. But, let’s face it…many of you complain about just about everything…and yet, continue to play. Go figure.

For the rest of you, I am happy to be doing a CALENDAR again…as it implies that there is actually an event that warrants the hours of work that go into it.

FOR ALL OF THE NUMBERS YOU NEED TO GET IT ALL (and there is a lot of stuff)…keep reading!

Game of Games: Turbo Tappin’ Week 1, E4 No Access Pass

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Let the games begin!  After a long hiatus, we finally have a major event in Springfield!  Game of Games has arrived and it looks to be a game fest of nerdy proportions!

The Game of Games follows the same event structure that the Simpsons Christmas Special and Valentine’s Day events before it.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!

For Act 1 we’re tasked with finding passes for E4!  Each part of the story will unlock another prize themed for the first part of the story.  So let’s take a look at the details behind Week 1 and the Turbo Tappin’ Version for E4 No Access Pass…

Game of Games Week 1 Is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

After 4 months we FINALLY have a new “major” event available in TSTO.  I say  “major” because it’s not a mini-event, but it’s not your typical main event either.  We’re back to multi-events for this one.  So love them, or hate them, they’re here to stay at least (likely) through the end of the year.

You can find overall spoilers about the event here, direct from EA. This event is a spoof on E3, which happened yesterday.  ICYMI you can check out The Simpsons Panel at E3 last night here

Anywho….things kick off with 6s tasks for Homer, Lisa, and Bart.  That first round is followed by another round of 6s tasks for Lisa and Bart. This then kicks off the Game of Games Multi-Event!

**For part 1 you’ll need to send Bart on a 4hr task and collect 200 VIP passes.  To collect passes you can send: Bart, Lisa, Homer, Marge, Milhouse, Nelson, Martin, Ralph, Sophie, and Blocko Angelica Button (new premium character)**

As always, I’m going to continue to update this post as I run through things so keep checking back…It’s been a while since a large event hit, we’re a bit rusty around here 😉

Simpsons Panel At E3…A Recap

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy Update Day!  ICYMI…and I don’t know how you could have I wrote a bunch of posts about it last night…an all-new update for TSTO hit our games last night.  If you haven’t already done so, go download it from the App Store now.  And if you want to see them, you can check out Spoilers here.

But this post isn’t about the new update.  This post is a recap of what happened last night during the E3 Expo, and the Simpsons panel.  If you didn’t get a chance to watch the hour-long panel I’ve embedded the YouTube video from it below, and I’ll highlight some areas for those who don’t have the time to watch the hour-long panel now.

App Store Update: Game of Games

Update: Spoilers packet just came in from EA, so I’ll have a spoilers post up soon.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

A major event update has FINALLY hit the servers!  Game of Games is available for download in the app store…

Yes, I’m a little late for this one… I guess that’s what happens when you’re spending quality time with your kiddos before bed..

I’m going to start pulling info for this one…but just because the app update is available does not mean the game is live yet.  The update itself doesn’t go live until TOMORROW (Wednesday, June 12th) at 1400 UTC/10 AM Eastern Time. 

Heaven help us if this is another Bart Royale event…I may lose my mind…

Here are the characters you can expect… Continue reading
