Where Did THAT Come From – Ned’s Camper, Car Impound Lot, and Shelbyville Manhattan Statue

In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where Did THAT Come From?

Where Did THAT Come From – Jebediah Springfield & Shelbyville Manhattan

Prognostication with Wookstradamus

So EA took away our snow and brought us a winter take-down update. While I find my Springfield to be glaringly green all of a sudden and miss my Wookiee Winterland, this time of year always leads to some speculation about the future of the game. Of course, EA made that even easier with some teases in the app store descriptions.

iOS and Android – The New Year has been rung in, and the soggy decapitated goat heads have been wrung out. With Springfield getting back to normal, what will be next for your town? An inaugural incident? A romp around the world? A valentine visit from a gluttonous gal? Maybe some military miseducation? You’ll just have to wait to find out!

Amazon – The heretics have had their time and a new year has been celebrated. As the religious riots settle and the townsfolk get back to their normal lives, what’s next for your town? An inaugural incident? A romp around the world? An invasion of bow wielding gnomes?

I must admit, I laughed at these as I often do. Whoever writes the script for the beginnings of updates gets two furry thumbs up. Anyhoo… all these questions got me thinking about what the clues might mean. In a typical fashion, I sat down in the attic, blew the Cheetos dust off my fingers, and thought and thoughts and crunched and thought about what each hint made me reminisce about from the Best. Show. Ever. With some good thinks accomplished, Alissa convinced me to share my fuzzy thinking with all of you. I won’t share my cheesy poofs but I guess you can have my ideas. With all that being said, here’s Wookstradamus Prognostication based on veiled hints from a clever writer at EA.

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 this week, football instead, but did you catch last week’s 1hr episode?  What were your thoughts?

Not to much going on in Springfield right now.  The snow has melted and a few changes have been made to Springfield Heights.  Have you picked up new land?  Enjoying the new 8hr tasks?

 

How was your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

So chat about the Simpsons, TSTO, Update fun, or anything else you can think of!  Can’t wait to chat with you all, you know we love hearing from you!

Have Fun!  And happy Sunday!

Springfield Showoff: Places of Worship

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 find ourselves sometimes 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. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Episode Recap: “Great Phatsby” (S28:E12) – With Moderate Critical Review

phatsby-main

While the Wookster is busy getting ready for Winter Term (while being the most amazing Disney African Cruise Tour guide ever), I am stepping in to take a spin at an episode recap.  I have to admit, I actually asked to do a review, because I liked this one so much, but was then reminded that these are mostly “Re-Caps” and not so much “Reviews.”  I’ll do my best not to let my bias creep into this.

Should I Spend Donuts On Gil’s Jay G Deal?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The snow may be gone but the party’s just getting started!  Gil arrived in Springfield a couple of days ago with an all new Phatsby of a deal!  Premium…of course.

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks as awesome as this 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 Jay G’s Gil deal to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this faith healer to your Springfield…

Showoff Second Reminder: Places of Worship

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a second reminder that we’ll be doing a Places of Worship Inspired Springfield Showoff this weekend!  So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

It’s time to showoff your towns.  So send us your Places of Worship designs and we’ll be putting up the Showoff post, featuring your designs, THIS SATURDAY (January 21st)

78954

So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET Friday (January 20th). Can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.

If you need help with screenshots check out this post

Remember if you’re having trouble posting your images you can always email them to us…TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.

You can send your designs in two ways…either post a link to the image in the comments on this post or you can email them to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  We won’t be pulling images from anywhere else, so please if you want to be featured either submit in the comments below or email your images to us. (don’t worry I’ll still be pulling from the announcement post we put up last week as well…)

Note: PLEASE try to limit your submissions to only 1-2 of your favorite screenshots.  We like to try and let everyone showoff their town but it becomes difficult when some of you are sending in 7-10 images.  Pick your favorite areas and send them in (or if you stitch photos together, that works too).  We’ll try our best to get EVERYONE in, but please understand that sometimes we miss a photo or two.  If we miss you one week, we’ll try really hard to make sure we get you in the next week.  You’re always welcome to showoff your town, at any time, on our Flickr page.  We know a lot of you have awesome towns that you want to show off, but please try to stick with this week’s theme.  Remember, this isn’t a contest.  There’s nothing to win.  It’s just a fun way to showoff your town and get some design inspiration from your fellow Addicts.  🙂   

Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff?  Post your images  in the Comments below or email us your screenshots at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.)
