Quite a few alliteration altercations huh?

Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Light-up Elder God or Pumpkin House?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s time for a little Magical Halloween to invade Springfield!  With this all new magical event a few returning items magically returned to our stores…just asking us to drop our sprinkles.

Wondering if you should add the Light-Up Elder God or Pumpkin House to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

Halloween Magic Act 2…Free Donuts!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in with something real quick.  Once again EA has made it even easier to earn free donuts for Act 2 of this event!

Just Act 1, EA’s done something a little different (and in my opinion BETTER) for Halloween Act 2….you can now earn bonuts BEFORE you’ve completed the prize track! In this case, once you’ve completed the main questline,  you’ll see the bonus round popup:

So for every 10,000  you collect after finishing the questline, you’ll have a chance for 1, 2 or 3 donuts!

BTW….Can you Spot EA’s Typo? 

This is great because now if you, for some reason, don’t make it to the final prize on the Act 2 prize track you can still earn free donuts!  And you’ll earn free donuts just for getting to the final prize.  You’ll earn at least 1 round of bonuts before you get to the end! (well depending on how fast you finish the questline, but it’s pretty short…so shouldn’t take too long)

Remember, to trigger the bonus round you’ll need to complete the Act 2 questline.  Turbo Tapping version can be found here.

Pretty sweet change in my opinion!  No tricks here, this is definitely a treat this Halloween!

THOH XVIII – Act II Calendar

I have to admit… I was a bit like Charlie Brown this morning as I opened my game up, knowing that a new act was starting.  Like Charlie at Halloween…I was hoping for a full-size premium chocolate bar, and instead, appear to have received another rock.  One click…and BOOM…we are back to grinding.

I’m not really sure what to tell you, except that this act seems to be as easy as the last act, if you “want it all.”  But, like last act, we are left with the same “meh” and redundant craftables…along with some pretty uninspired “Main Prize Track” prizes.

But then…just as I was typing that last paragraph…I got a message from Alissa, that EA had changed the numbers again…upped them to make them a bit harder. This was AFTER I had spent 2 hours doing the math, and making the new calendars. Yes…EA is currently on my Sh*t list. Not a fan.

I’m not against the Potter-esque event….I’m just still waiting for the magic.

But…here are the numbers…all a couple of hundred higher than the originals that were in the files…just because EA apparently wants to prove “who is in charge” and is being Richard-ish…even though we have established that this update is anything but Hallow-Richardy in its execution.

Friday Filler – In Defense of the Pot(ter) Heads

In the last episode of Addicts Live, we came up with a couple of new terms that seemed to just burst from the womb of creativity of their own free will. The two terms were Pot Heads (Alissa’s) and Ninnieville (mine).  To be clear, neither were meant as pejorative terms (really, Sam!) but were instead, merely adjectives used to define a group more easily.

OK. So even I’m not entirely buying that…and I made one of them up.

This TSTO event has been one of the most divisive since last year’s Christmas/Holiday/Pagan event. And perhaps sadly, represents an ever-growing thin-skinned-ness or unbridled open season on anyone different (depending on your purview), that seems to have cropped up since the 2016 elections.  It’s ugly. It’s mean-spirited and un-apologetically destructive to the worldwide community.

So…take a knee or don’t take a knee…it’s time to finally get down to defending those who Alissa calls “Pot Heads,” (without actually going so far as to discuss pot).

Is this Event Hallow-Richard enough? (another classic from the Addicts Live…from Wookiee), or does it completely miss the mark of what we should expect from a THOH Major Event?
