Friday Filler – Killing Three Geese With One Stone

Thank Grog It’s Firday! 

I can’t believe how many questions the addition of the Golden Goose Real Estate building opened up!  Three HUGE questions, or “goose chases,” that really forced me to do some serious research, math, and some additional Goose Guessing!

The Questions?
1. How Many Land Sections Are There, and how many do I have left?
2. Does it make sense for me to hoard my Free GGR land certificates, or should I move ahead and turn them in for Free Donuts?
3. Where in the heck is “True North” in TSTO?

Well…as much as it seems to be an impossible task to answer all of these in one single post, I am just the tapper to take it on!

Let’s start with Goose Guess Number One…

We’re a few days into the first mini-event of 2019…Not Yet Spring Cleaning.  What are your thoughts on the Alice Glick centered event?  Thoughts on the GGR?  How about finally getting Lewis in our games?

What do you think will be the next event in Springfield?

And finally, how about the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

Our Addicts International Outreach Project – Do Something That Matters!

It’s that time of the new year again, when many of you step up to help our “Addicts International Outreach” program in Buyijja, Uganda.

I know. Most of you come here for all of the free advice and community wisdom to help you play TSTO.   But, here at Addicts, we like to do more…

This project has been going since 2014, and has been funded almost exclusively (more than 85% of the funds), from the generosity of TSTO players worldwide!  It is a chance for us to get outside of the aspects of this “silly little game” and offer children a future, with our gifts of Peace, Hope and Love!

Winter Term begins at the end of the month, so we need to get on this quickly!
HERE ARE THE DETAILS… and remember…every donation, large or small helps!

Friday Filler – When EA Gets it Right…

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

I’m not going to go so far as to say that EA/Gracie always get it right. Far from it.

HOWEVER… this game continues to evolve…EA continues to listen…and the best part of it all (when compared to other mobile games), it JUST KEEPS KEEPIN’ ON!

I’m really not sure how many of you play other Mobile Device games.  I admit to being pretty limited.  Mostly because almost none of them hold my attention.  I’m not into “Shoot ’em up” games, or games that require loads of time each session.  But, more important, I am not a fan of games that get “stuck” in one mode…and bore me.

I am going to ask a very specific question…and I am asking the good folks at Gracie Films/Fox, and specifically Matt Groening… “Why In The Hell Did You NOT Choose EA for your Futurama game?”  I get it for Family Guy. After all…Seth McFarland likes to “be different” (while mostly copying other shows for his content).  But, Matt…you have a good thing going with EA and Tapped Out…what made you flip to Tiny Co for Futurama??

I can’t imagine it was the answer to that question might be. But the much touted, “Futurama Worlds of Tomorrow” should be renamed to “Futurama…not much future tomorrow.”

But, this isn’t about piling on to Tiny Co.  This is a post about the recent things that EA has done, to prove that they still care about the game, and the best choice for Tapped Out. Even if they make us nuts once in a while!

Happy New Year fellow Addicts! We’re almost a full week into 2019, how’s it going for you so far?  Keeping those resolutions? Gave up on them already?

Christmas ended in TSTO this past Wednesday, yet we still don’t have anything new in Springfield. What do you think is next?  When do you think it’ll hit?

ICYMI Safi had a brand new post all about advanced Kwik-e-Mart farming.  Have you read it yet?  Thoughts?

And finally, how about the rest of your weekend?  Do anything fun and exciting?

Friday Filler – EA Going Too Far For Cheap Christmas Laughs?

Thank Grog It’s Firdday!

I was taught by my Dad, that if you have bad news, or some criticism to deliver, you always start with something nice first!  My Dad was a great guy that way…

So, I’ll start by saying that I rEAlly enjoyed the Christmas Event. As in, rEAlly!  That’s right…I’m giving credit where it is due.  Nice, short event. LOADS of storylines and content…with a very nice smattering of free  content and prizes!

So…what could I possibly dislike about this event?

Friday Filler- When Old Really Is Better, Or At Least Wiser…

It’s amazing. Really amazing. I don’t feel like I’m a bona-fide senior citizen, even though the math is clearly stating it to be so.  When you are officially on the Government dole, like I will be in a couple of days, you have to look back at your life and wonder, “Hey…how did I get here?”

But, then…you find yourself starting to whine about things that even the most learned Gen-EXers and Millennials would simply ignore, mostly because they have no freakin’ clue what I am talking about.

It happened again in the past few days.  A handful of stuff in our game that made me say, “Holyfreakinshirt! Don’t they know nothin’ about nothin’???”

One was a matter of scale, again…but also the realization that most people wouldn’t have a clue about what I LIKED about the thing that was way too small. (I know…that sounded like  a set up to a dirty joke).

The other had to do with EA besmirching a game I love, along with one of it’s most hallowed, legendary, players.

And, how they missed a chance to do something pretty cool for the New Year…that would help mark a 50th anniversary of a year that  would make this one seem like a cakewalk (even though the cake probably has a few contraband ingredients that would make it less than appetizing for all but true cake-a-holics).

I’m gonna be 65 on New Year’s Day.  So…let me whine a bit. I’m officially old.  Get off my lawn! Nah…it’s OK. You can come on the lawn if you bring cake.
But man…that aircraft carrier really gets me going!
