Friday Filler – The Value of Dead Presidents in TSTO

I am writing this early again, because I am going to be on a plane, or will have just gotten off of a plane, or am sleeping off the final stages of my trip back East to see grandson Jake, with a little side trip to see Alissa, Sam and Riley.

For me, the 4th of July celebration this year was special, in that we didn’t celebrate it. It wasn’t a political statement, it was a choice of staying a couple of extra days and spending almost another $800 on airfare, or flying on the 4th, when everyone else is celebrating and airfares are cheap.

Flying is always a literal pain these days…less leg room, no free food (water and a cookie), and the knowledge that any connection could turn into a nightmare of cancelled flights can turn a short trip into a nightmare, (which has the vibe of current headlines for some people trying to become Americans).

But, it is a great chance to reflect…and take stock of the Presidents we have in TSTO…even if they are all dead, and just retreads from past events.

Happy 4th of July From the Addicts!

20140629_150509

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Today is America’s Birthday!  Being that the Addicts crew are almost all located in the US (poor Safi is stuck working today…) we’re taking the day to spend time with our families and friends to celebrate the day America announced it’s Independence. So we really won’t be around much today, as we’re taking a much needed day to recover, relax and celebrate with our families!

Remember you can check out all of the Coverage so far on the Game of Games Event here. Most of your questions should be addressed in one of those posts.

Hope you all have an amazing 4th! (whether you’re celebrating Independence Day or just going to work..cause you know it is Thursday 😉 )

Game of Games Week 4 Is Live!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Game of Games Week 4 is Live!  It’s time to start the final week of this multi-event!

Things kick off for week 4 with some dialogue between Homer and Marge…

Homer: Marge! I did it, I got E4 passes for the kids.
Marge: Oh, Homie. The kids found passes without you and are already at the convention.
Homer: Bart doesn’t need my help? I only hope that’s true when he’s old enough to need to be bailed out of jail.

This is followed by a 6s tasks for Homer and Marge.  Once completed you’ll trigger the week 4 questline, which will take you through unlocking all of the week 4 prizes, Fourscore and a Halfmonth.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during week 4…

P.P.S I’m thoroughly going to enjoy a day “off” today…but I know A LOT of you have questions about Community prizes.  While I’m going to write a post on it…next week, NOT today..I figured let me give you a little bit of info to ease some of your minds..

-Yes, you have to buy a Soccer Ball for 500 Bucks to advance the questline for Act 2.  If you don’t finish the Act 2 questline, you can’t start the Act 3 questline once it starts.  So just spend the 500 Bucks when you can…or as they say in baseball “suck it up and take one for the team”.

-Yes, you will see the balls rolling around in your town if someone leaves you one.  They’re hard to see and can often hide behind buildings etc.  If you see one and tap on it i’ll say “Ball Collect”.  Nothing else happens, just that.

-No, you will not see any kind of in game popup about balls being in your town.

-No you cannot “play catch” literally with your neighbors.  You can’t throw balls back and forth.  Once you put one in a neighbors town..that’s it.

-Relax about the Community Prizes.  It’s only a day or so into it.  It’ll take some time for them to build up.  Don’t be Doom and Gloom about it right now…it’s barely into the start of them.  Don’t start thinking “it’s not possible” until it’s been several days, please.  For the sanity of the moderators of this site….

-If you’ve never done community prizes before…relax.  They’re fun.  As long as the goals are met by the Tappers World Wide (yes it’s everybody that plays TSTO world wide, not just your own neighbors) you’ll get every single prize.  So just relax, have fun and play.

-And finally…yes, participate.  Buy some balls and put them in your neighbors town.  You don’t have to do it a ton, but every once in a while is nice.  It helps everyone out to get those prizes.
