Christmas 2019 (Abe’s in Toyland) Prize Guide: Act 3, Prizes 2 and 3 Whiz Bang Toy Company and Abe’s Rainbow Statue

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Christmas still continues in our pocket-sized towns!  By now the snow is starting to get old, and the residents of Springfield are starting to debating when to take their Christmas trees to the curb.  But alas…the story continues in TSTO…

Abe’s in Toyland follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!

For Week 3 Act 3, we’re following the third, Grampa Saves Christmas, story…a tale about how he saved America from a communist Toy Company!  All of the prizes unlocked during week 3 play a role in that storyline.

So let’s take a look at prizes 2 and three on the Abe’s in Toyland Act 3 Prize track…Whiz Bang Toy Company and Abe’s Rainbow Statue…

Should I Spend Donuts On the Returning Bethlehem Inn, Toys B This, or Personalized Talking Astrolabe?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Gather ’round the tapping device everyone, it’s update time in TSTO! And there’s nothing like the holidays to bring a little crazy to our pocket-sized towns! As the latest event in TSTO hit our towns recently…this time to celebrate Christmas! (kinda…sorta. Maybe?)  Of course, a new event gives EA an excuse to stock our stores with returning premium content, just tempting us to drop those pink sprinkles!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight 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 the returning Bethlehem Inn, Toys B This, or Personalized Talking Astrolabe? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

Christmas 2019 (Abe’s in Toyland): Turbo Tappin’ Week 3, Abe the Toy Solider

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Christmas still continues in our pocket-sized towns!  By now the snow is starting to get old, and the residents of Springfield are starting to debating when to take their Christmas trees to the curb.  But alas…the story continues in TSTO…

As I’ve said before, Abe’s in Toyland follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!

For Act 3 we’re tasked with collecting Toy Soliders!  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 Week 3 and the Turbo Tappin’ Version for Abe the Toy Solider…

Christmas 2019 (Abe’s In Toyland) Week 3 Is Live!

Full disclosure…it’s Christmas. (Merry Christmas!)  I’m not here.  I’ve prewritten this post and scheduled it in advance to go live when Act 3 hits.  So all of the information in this post is based off of the information EA has provided us in our event packets.  I have not verified in-game.  So if something is incorrect, I apologize and i’ll fix it tomorrow…maybe. If not tomorrow, then Friday. Today, I’m spending the day with my family…as you should be too! 🙂

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s officially 10am here on the East Coast, and that means Week 3 of Abe’s in Toyland is live in Springfield!

Things kick off for week 3 with some more dialogue between Grampa and Death…

Death: Look, you need to hurry up these stories. You’re supposed to be chewing coffin dirt by dawn.
Grampa: Don’t get your ghoul underpants in a ghost knot, I’m getting there. World War Two was over. I had an honorable discharge from the Army, and a dishonorable discharge from a skin condition I picked up in Paris. The economy was booming, and every veteran was dating a nurse he’d kissed on V-J day. And yet America was threatened by internal Communist subversives from the USSR. We were headed towards a Christmas nightmare!

This triggers the week 3 questline, Abe the Toy Solider, and is followed by 4hr task for Grampa, as well as a task to collect Week 3 Currency (50).  Abe the Toy Solider is the questline that will take you through unlocking all of the Week 3 prizes.

Let’s take a look at what else is in store during week 3…

Merry Christmas!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Christmas!  It’s Christmas! Santa was here!!! Woo-hoo!!!

You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always find the latest on the Christmas Update here), as the Addicts celebrate Christmas with our families.

Basically, we are pre-occupied today and hope YOU are too. I think all of us need a day to step away and just relax, unwind and enjoy those around us. So you won’t see much going on here. Your comments will likely sit in moderation for a bit. Pretty much it is going to be a quiet day on the Addicts sites while we….BRACE YOURSELVES…take a day off. SHOCKING I KNOW!!!

No worries, we promise all won’t be lost in a day. We always have our eyes and ears open. Even if you do not see or hear from us, does not mean we aren’t watching out for you. We will return after the holiday with any changes and more info about the Christmas Event.  So for today….ENJOY THE SILENCE!

Also, Act 3 hit today.  I had a post preplanned to go up at 10am ET. You can find the info about act 3 here.  (or just by scrolling down below this post) I’m not going to be anywhere near this site…but at least you guys will have the info you need, for those who want to get a jump start on Act 3.  For the rest of you…enjoy Christmas.  If you don’t tap today you’ll still do just fine with the prize track.  Slow down, and enjoy the day! It only comes around once a year! 🙂

Well, that’s it from us.  But we want to take a moment to wish you and your families a VERY Merry Christmas!  Have a great day everyone and be safe!

Merry Christmas from the Addicts

P.S. If you want to see how Riley and Sam (aka the Tiny Addict and Baby Addict) spent Christmas Eve and today..check out instagram. 🙂

Christmas 2019 (Abe’s in Toyland): Full Dialogue Week 2, A Foggy London Christmas

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Abe’s In Toyland Week 3 Starts Tomorrow

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a friendly reminder that tomorrow morning, Wednesday, December 25th, is Christmas!!!!  Oh and also Week 3 (Act 2) of Abe’s in Toyland will be starting (what lousy timing on EA’s part…).  The official start time is 10am ET.

While the Weeks 1 and 2 questlines won’t be going anywhere, so if you haven’t finished the prizes you’ll have a chance to complete it even after Week 2 starts, all of the Week 2 Premium items will be leaving the store.

So if you planned to purchase Abbey do so before she leaves our games tomorrow morning. (SIB Linked)

Also, here’s some inside info to help you prepare for Week 3 to start…

During Week 3 we’ll travel back in time to when Abe was a Toy Solider model!    Of course, you’ll have to follow along with the dialogue to find out what happens, but the same characters used for Act 2 currency tasks should be used for the Act 3 currency tasks, with the exception Abbey.  Again, the Abbey will NOT earn currency for Week 3.  So we’re looking at:
Homer
Lisa
Bart
Milhouse
Ned
Grampa
Marge
Moe
New Premium Character for Act 3

You’ll also need Grampa free for the initial questline objective…

There will also be one new premium costume combo introduced during week 3, and that costume will be able to help with the currency earning for week 3.  (150 donuts will be needed if you’d like to purchase the combo)

And that’s it my friends!  Be prepared for Week 3 to start up tomorrow morning!

Thoughts on week 2?  Ready for week 2?  Excited to see where the story goes?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s finally Christmas in Springfield!  Our pocket-sized Springfields have been covered with a fresh blanket of snow!  What’s in store for us this time?  Well, we’re tasked with trying to determine if Grampa Simpson ever saves Christmas, while he bores Death…well to death! 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.

Abe’s in Toyland follows the same event structure of the Multi-Events before it.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!

Festivus for the Rest of Us: Air Your TSTO Grievances

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy Festivus!  Yes, today, December 23rd, is officially Festivus…for the rest of us!

What is Festivus?  Well, although not created by the show Seinfield…it was really brought to light (and greatly exaggerated) by the show.  In particular, in an episode titled “The Strike”.

Here’s a little more about Festivus…via Seinfield:

So while we don’t have an Aluminum Pole…although I work for an Aluminum company, so I’ve got plenty in my office…and there will be no feats of strength on this site today, I still want to celebrate Festivus…in the best way possible.  By airing our TSTO Grievances!

I feel like 2019 has been an up and down year in TSTO, one in which the players have a lot of pent up frustration and anger towards EA.  So let’s use this Festivus to air those Grievances about TSTO!

Mad about multi-events?  Angry about a lack of new content during events?  Ticked about long wait times between events? Annoyed with land tokens? Wish EA would just give TSTO a little bit of effort?  Tell everyone in the comments below!  (just keep it clean, watch your language, and keep everything directed at TSTO….not each other)

So go ahead and air those grievances, it’s a great way to end 2019!
