THOH Update Removal is Live…And So is Thanksgiving (Updated and Complete)

Note: Yup, the update is still not available on iOS.  Happens sometimes.  May be a bug with it, could be Apple holding it up…at this point it’s available on Android and Amazon. EA typically releases updates for all 3 markets at the same time, and then it’s up to each App Store to approve them, some move slower than others. (which is why Amazon is often late)  This has happened with other games as well (see TQFS)…unfortunately just a little patience is required.  Hopefully it’ll hit iOS soon….

NOTE FROM PATRIC- I was one of you…no iOS. It landed this morning. HOWEVER…it didn’t just “show up.”  I needed to shut down my device completely…as in all the way off, not just clicking the screen. Shut. Down. Then go into the app store…and do a search for “The Simpsons Tapped Out.” That finally brought up the new updated screen.  Please try that before you write, reinstall, or freak out any further…Thanks!! 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Check your app stores because there’s an update on our hands!

And i’m actually pleasantly surprised by EA…as a nice touch they’ve added Turkeys to the Splash Screen and Icon….i don’t recall them doing that ever unless it was for a major event.

Two thumbs up with that EA, good job and a nice touch.

And of course, as you may have guessed, this leads right into the Thanksgiving mini-event!  No waiting!

I’ve got a LOT going on at work right now, so I’ll fully update this post later.  But for now know that you’ll need to complete Lisa’s first 6s task and that will launch the mini-event…

Now let’s go into more details…. Continue reading

Where Did THAT Come From – Cornucopia

Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful and thank goodness EA brought us some new FREE stuff for our games.  For this edition of Simpson origin goodness, I thought I’d talk about that little item EA gave us at the end of Part 1 of the Thanksgiving questline… the Cornucopia.

Where did THOSE come from – Thanksgiving Balloons (Part 1)

Hey hey hey Tapperinos!  Wookiee here for more origin story fun and no I’m not here to discuss server issues.  For Thanksgiving, EA brought back the parade balloons from 2012 AND added a few more.

Once upon a time in TSTO land, we did not have Krustyland and there were no pets running around the town.  For Thanksgiving 2012, EA remedied this by providing us with balloon versions of Santa’s Little Helper, Snowball 2, Itchy & Scratchy and Blinky.  It’s my opinion that we got these to calm the clamor for some of the more popular characters in the game.  Of course, SLH joined the fun during Christmas 2012 and the fight and bight duo appeared like crazy with the Krustyland expansion.

When I think of parade balloons in the Simpsons, I have to go back to this little bit of dialogue between Homer and Bart in Bart vs. Thanksgiving (S2, Ep. 7).  Bart has no clue who Rocky or Underdog are in the Thanksgiving Day Parade and states:

Bart: Well, I know it wouldn’t hurt them to use some cartoons made in the last 50 years.

Homer: Son, this is a tradition.  If you start building a balloon for every flash in the pan cartoon character, you’ll turn the parade in to a farce.
