A lil note from Wookiee

Hey howdy hey Addictereenos!  How y’all doing?

TSTO Blogging isn’t all about the game.  One of the main reasons I love this gig so much is just that I love the Simpsons universe and always have since I started watching at the tender age of 8.  My fanboy flag waves high for the show and even when I’m not writing or moderating or doing something connected to TSTO Addicts, I’m watching the show because it makes me happy.  I like to laugh and jokes are never in short supply when it comes to Homer and company.

So, the other day, I was re-watching some of my favorite episodes and in the middle of S3:E20 “Colonel Homer”, I said to myself, “Self… this would make one heck of a level update in TSTO.”  SO many great ideas that could make a new level for my favorite game.  Even more, I wondered how many Addicts have watched an episode and thought the same thing.  Follow this with some discussion between Team Addicts and Voila!… we decided to find out with a NEW CONTEST!!!

Yes we said a BRAND NEW CONTEST!!!!  Here at Addicts HQ summer is in full swing and we’ve completely lost our minds, wait did we ever have them to begin with? 😉  We’re once again giving away FREE Donuts!!!  We’ve really & completely lost our minds!  So let’s talk about this Contest (before we change our minds)…..

New Holiday Contest: Santa’s Coming Early!

Christmas is coming to Springfield, have you been naughty or nice?  Let’s find out with another Addicts contest! THE CONTEST IS OFFICIALLY OPEN! 
Tapped_Out_Mystery_Stocking

Twas 3 weeks before Christmas and all through the blogs
Everyone was scurrying to cover their jobs
The stockings were hung by the myPads with care   
In hopes that EA would drop donuts in there! 

The Addicts were all rested all set to prepare
Tons of great posts for the readers with care!
With the Wookiee in the Attic and the Bunny in the basement
Christmas surly would be covered by their recent placement!

When down in the basement there arose such a clatter,
Alissa ran down the stairs to see what was the matter.
Away to the corner where Bunny was twitchy,
You see this holiday season she was feeling quite grinchy!

The moonlight shining through the windows that night,
Lit up the basement to reveal quite a sight!
Bunny had used all of her donuts for 2D art,
Quick we need to do something to warm her grinchy heart!

So Alissa called up to Wookiee, “we need to do something drastic”
Then Wookiee suggested “how about a contest, wouldn’t that’d be fantastic?”
A contest where Tappers can design their own art,
Might be just what we need to warm Bunny’s heart! 

The prizes shall be donuts, so the task won’t seem like a chore!
We’ll give away Boats, Stores & Trucks full of donuts galore! 
Bunny’s grinchyness has been lifted and replaced with some crazy,
Now I think it’s time to end this, the Tappers eyes are looking glazy!
