Welcome to the TSTO lifestyles of the not so rich and famous…
Hey hey friends! So in case you’ve been enjoying a real life without a lot of TSTO or the blog, you might not have noticed that EA has been busy. Not only did they dish up a fun Tap Ball Event and Level 55 and 56 but they decided to add Cookiee Kwan and an entire new district with 56 pieces of land! If you don’t count the 14 water strips… that’s 42 new pieces of possible real estate development!
But wait a tick… Springfield Heights is a district for all the rich folks… the “whales” as Homer calls them. Not all of us skyfingers are fabulously wealthy and that Kwan always rubbed me the wrong way. She can have the West side. Let’s not tell her we always though of that land behind the mountains as North anyways. As a native Californian… you won’t convince me that the water side isn’t the West anyways.
So before the uber rich land became available… EA actually gave us not one but two strips of land with the Tap Ball Event and what’s a Wookiee to do when he has so much more “regular folk” space for designing? Get to work of course (after getting all his origin posts done first). FYI… if you ever wanted to see my town, it’s below the break.
So… in the midst of this downtime period for EA, I figured I’d pop in with my two cents. Gonna ramble about Stonecutters, EA downtime and my thoughts on the Valentine’s Update. Nothing game specific but figured I’d chime in with some thoughts if you were interested. If not, just smile and wave boys, smile and wave.

With all the TSTO War going on, it brings to mind some of the great war poetry I’ve read in my life (quite a bit during my last semester of college). I thought I’d start this Weekend Update with a little culture. I highly recommend Mr. Owen’s stuff and will save you from any more of my thoughts about real war.
Moving back to why you’re probably here… the Weekend Update… Wookiee here and this was the last week at TSTO Addicts.
Well hey hey hey Addictereenos. Wookiee back with more origin story fun for y’all and this time it’s all for an event honoring American independence. For this round of WDTCF, we’ll be looking at the new unique decoration made available with this event, the Lincoln Memorial.
Look in the sky… it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a…. a… a…. giant freaking restaurant. What the what?
Well, by now all of you dear readers are in the thick of the July 4th event goodness and I’m sure you’ve noticed that EA had added a new aspirational building to the mix. Costing $10,000,000 game cash, it is by far the priciest item EA has brought to us on the freemium level. It requires you be at Level 35 in your game and helps out that Gluttony rating on the conform-o-meter. Did I mention how massive this thing is? It’s 9×9 and really tall with a continuous animation of the top spinning. It is purely aspirational and does not earn anything for your town but those are just game details… you didn’t come by here for that, did ya? Let’s get into just where this monstrosity of a restaurant comes from.
It’s been just over a week now since Level 33 hit our devices. Some of you might be right in the middle of the Level (after all it does take about 11 days with out Donuts) and others might be finished with Level 33, donut users like me (I like to think we keep EA in business with our donut buying), and hungry for more. Addicts was designed for tappers on both end of the donut world, and everyone in-between, and (I hope) our posts reflect it. So if you’ve missed anything from the Addicts team this week here’s your chance to catch up!
