Springfield Jobs Act II- Prize Guide – Tower of Springfield


Tut, Tut my good ladies and gents…we are awash in the best of “Jolly Old England” in our Springfields.  The heisting continues, but it is almost secondary to the cool buildings and prizes up for grabs in this Act.

I admit to being a bit of an Anglophile, so I am stoked to get some of the buildings and special decorations that have graced my imagination and book shelves for most of my lifetime.  And, if you have to steal a few jewels to get it all?  So be it!

First Prize- Tower of Springfield!

Addicts Want to Know: 2017 Year in Review Poll + Contest Alert!

The contest is now closed.  The winner of the Ralphie figurine is Robert!  Congratulations & thanks everyone for participating! 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well we’re nearing the end of 2017.  Another year in the books and another year full of events in TSTO.  As we prepare to head into 2018, we’re planning on doing a very special Addicts Live for the end of the year.  This will be pre-recorded, so nothing to tune in live for.  That episode will feature a discussion about 2017 in TSTO.  We’ll talk about the events, share our opinions about each event & we hope to include your opinions as well!

So in preparation for that episode, I’ve prepared a Addicts Poll…a place for you to break down just the events of 2017.  This way we can keep Addicts Live interactive, despite being pre-recorded.

Please, take a moment to answer the poll questions below & as a reward you’ll be entered in a very special contest!  (more details on that below)

For those having trouble viewing the form embedded here, follow the direct link here

Please Note: In the past, I’ve had issues with people responding to their email when they’ve won a contest.  So for this contest, because of time constraints (I want to get this in the mail by Thursday), I ask you (if you want to enter the contest) to enter your Mailing Address for Shipping right in the entry form.  In order to be a valid entry for the contest, your address must be entered.  If you don’t want to enter the contest, leave that area blank.   

And now CONTEST ALERT…

Make TSTO Events Great Again

Update: I’ve added another point…

Dear TSTO,

We need to talk.  Lately, I feel like we’ve lost that lovin’ feeling.  It’s totally not me…it’s you.  I try and try to bring that feeling back, but time and time again you just disappoint me.

What happened to the way things used to be?  You’ve tried over the last couple of years to fix something that wasn’t broken, and instead, you broke what was already great.  You used to be cutting edge in mobile gaming, doing things no other game was doing.  Now you’re stuck in a rut and I’m not the only one noticing.

Day after day, event after event, I see other players say you’re losing their interest.  They’re grinding for the sake of grinding, and not because it’s fun. They too have lost that lovin’ feeling.  That excitement and joy that made them come back for more, over and over again.  They’re missing what made them Addicts in the first place.  And it needs to be fixed, pronto, or I’m afraid TSTO will lose players faster than that other mobile game has.

I get it, this game is over 5 years old.  It’s had a long life and maybe you’re running out of ideas.  But, the best thing about TSTO is it’s based on the best show.  So running out of ideas isn’t an option.  You have 28 full seasons of The Simpsons to work with.  And unlike some of those other games, by that other miniature company, The Simpsons is actually funny (and doesn’t rely solely on “fart jokes” for a laugh) and has never been canceled.  So really, running out of ideas isn’t an option.  If we’re still watching a show after nearly 30 years, clearly you should still be able to hold our interest after only 5 years.

Don’t worry, this isn’t a “Dear John” letter.  I’m not breaking up with you.  No, this is a “let’s fix things so we can get back that lovin’ feeling” letter.  So what follows is a list of 10 simple changes you can implement to make TSTO Events great again. (when it comes to those mini-events I actually think you’re doing a great job)  So let’s get to it…
