Friday Filler – Is The Anticipation Better Than The Actuality?

Thank Grog It’s Firday!!

Yes…it has continued to be one of those weeks/months/years that just keeps piling on the fun. But, I won’t take up more space here to talk about all of the family challenges in our neck of the woods. Especially, when we have a new update, and those woods are scary!

Well…maybe not as scary as many hoped for…but, at least it’s “hellish?”

And that’s really kind of what life has become at this point. Anticipating something great…counting down the days and hours…only to be disappointed in the outcome. And, let’s be honest about it. Almost everything that is highly anticipated leaves someone feeling disappointed.

But for me, there was one surprise that I have been begging for over the course of more than 18 months. Yes…those that know me, know that I am patient when it comes to begging. And, there are a few things that I have been hoping to come true, even longer than 18 months. But, my desire to be the nation’s first WWI Fighter Ace/Cowboy/Astronaut becomes more and more distant with each passing year.

However, I’m not going to complain. Because EA…in their infinite wisdom…FINALLY INCREASED THE HARD ITEM LIMITS!!!!!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s everyone’s (well almost everyone’s) favorite time in TSTO, the annual Treehouse of Horror Event!  Yes, Halloween in Springfield has always been big deal in TSTO and this year is no exception!  Of course, an all-new event means all-new premium content in our stores, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

Wondering if you should add Old Scratch and Flanders’ Personal Hell to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this hellish combo to your town…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s everyone’s (well almost everyone’s) favorite time in TSTO, the annual Treehouse of Horror Event!  Yes, Halloween in Springfield has always been big deal in TSTO and this year is no exception! Also always, loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up…

The 2020 THOH Event follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting just over a week (10 days) and taking us through a new part of the event!

For Act 1 we’re tasked with collecting Magic Runes!  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 Act 1 and the Turbo Tappin’ Version for School Days, Hell Daze…

THOH XXXI Calendar and Math You Need to Get It All!

Just when I suspected that things couldn’t get more “hellish” in the world…BOOM! We get a THOH update that is just full of it!

You have to love an update that starts right out with a pentagram for a prize. If you are a fan of horror movies, you know this never goes well.

But, looking into the calendar, it seems that the update will be anything but hellish…if you don’t mind tapping to get the stuff you want…in in format that has been repeated to the point of being hellish. But, I digress…

HERE ARE THE PRIZES and the MATH and the CALENDAR to Stay On Track!

Add Friends In TSTO!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, the old Add Friends feed was finally getting full (and you know, it’s not summer anymore), so I figured it’s now for a new feed to find TSTO friends!

Instead of adding a new feed for each event, since friends aren’t really necessary for events these days, I’m just done 1 post and we’ll update when it feels like it’s pretty full of requests.

While not a critical part of TSTO these days, Friends (neighbors) do make TSTO more enjoyable!  So be sure to add some neighboreenos to get design inspiration off of and to have a little help with social points & events!

So now…hit up this post with your Origin ID’s and Add Me Requests!  Who wants to be first?

Pssssst….If you’re looking for a thread to find neighbor-eenos who WON’T vandalize you check out this Add-Me page…now Graffiti free! 🙂

And remember…if you’re looking for ways you can THANK your neighbors for visiting, tell them you LOVE their designs…or even yell at them for stealing your designs…you can hit up our THANK YOU Thread!  The only place in the TSTO-verse where you can freely Thank and Admire your TSTO Friends and Neighbors!

Happy Tapping!

Add Friends- Graffiti Free 6

Remember this post is for those who won’t vandalize each other…if you’re looking for the regular Add Me Page you can find it here

Time for a little vandalism clean up…with a new event here and the old Vandalism Free page getting pretty full, I figured time to start fresh with a whole new Add Me page free of those vandals!

Do you hate getting graffiti in your Springfield?  Are you tired of cleaning up after other people’s fun, at your expense?  Are you someone that NEVER Vandalizes other towns?  Are you super concerned about your Righteousness rating…no matter how many Training Walls you build?  Well this is the Add Friends Thread for You!

no paint

 

Here’s your thread for those of you who PLEDGE NOT TO VANDALIZE EACH OTHER’S TOWNS!  If you can’t keep that pledge…please don’t add your name to this thread.  

IMPORTANT…..Include that you WILL NOT VANDALIZE in your comment with your request.  DO NOT put your name on this list AND the other list.  This is the list for those who pledge NOT to vandalize…if you put your ID on both lists we will delete it from this one.

Here’s what’s allowed on this thread:

-Origin ID (Add Me Request) with Pledge Not to Vandalize
-Posts saying you added someone
-Post ONLY to say ” —- tagged me” (let’s not insult each other…and remember give them a chance to apologize.  Accidents do happen)
-Post apologizing to someone for accidentally tagging them
AND THAT IS IT! NOTHING MORE!

It is up to YOU to decide who you want on your friends list. If you don’t want them, take them off. That simple.

Thank you! Happy Tapping!

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…..

The Simpsons are back tonight with an all-new episode.  Safi gave us a preview of the 3rd episode of Season 32 here, will you be watching?
