Classless Reunion Mini-Event is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow (Tuesday, March 26th) marks the end of the Classless Reunion mini-event!  So,  if you haven’t already, finish up that prize track, purchase your last few premium items, and be prepared to see the mini-event leave our games tomorrow morning! (and hopefully, something new arrives in its place)

A quick note on the Yearbook Mystery Box: I’m not sure if this will be sticking around after the event or not.  There never was an end date in the files for it, and last week they removed the countdown timer associated with it.   I don’t want to tell you it’s sticking around only to have it disappear, and I don’t want to tell you it’s leaving only to have it stick around.  So honestly, I can’t tell you what’s going to happen with it.  You’re going to have to use your best judgment when it comes to going for items in the box…

What are your overall thoughts on the Classless Reunion mini-event?  Have you enjoyed it?  Or did you feel like it was a bit lame?  Where have you placed the prizes? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

P.S. Don’t forget your showoff submissions are due tonight at 8pm ET. Show us your favorite parts of Springfield!

Turbo Tappin’ A Classless Reunion: Main Questline and Prizes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Back to back mini-events in Springfield!  At least we have new content, right?  I think they only thing we can be sure of these days from EA is to expect the unexpected.  I don’t think any of us thought another 2-week mini-event would follow State of Despair, but here we are.  It’s reunion time for Marge, Homer, and the rest of the Springfield High Gang.  What will happen?  Will Homer get his ham?  You’ll have to read the dialogue to find out.

Of course, as with all events, a questline comes with it to help move us through the ins and outs of the event…and unlock all of the prizes.  As was mentioned on the rundown post this mini event is your typical standard mini-event.  Follow the questline to unlock prizes and call it a day…until the next event.

So let’s take a look at the questline to see just how to unlock all new prizes…

State of Despair Mini-Event is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow (Tuesday, March 12th) marks the end of the State of Despair mini-event!  So,  if you haven’t already, finish up that prize track, purchase your last few premium items, and be prepared to see the mini-event leave our games tomorrow morning! (and hopefully, something new arrives in its place)

What are your overall thoughts on the State of Despair mini-event?  Premium items you purchased?  Excited to have Governor Bailey and Judge Harm in Springfield? Where have you placed the prizes? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

Turbo Tappin’ State of Despair: Main Questline and Prizes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

After a week hiatus, we finally have some new content in Springfield!  A new mini-event went live in our games yesterday morning…State of Despair.  Apparently, Governor Bailey is trying to give Springfield the old boot!  How will Springfield respond?  Well, you have to read the dialogue and play along to find out!

Of course, as with all events, a questline comes with it to help move us through the ins and outs of the event…and unlock all of the prizes.  As was mentioned on the rundown post this mini event is your typical standard mini-event.  Follow the questline to unlock prizes and call it a day…until the next event.

State of Despair Update is Live! (Updated and Complete)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The new mini-event is live in Springfield!  Provided you’ve downloaded the app store update, that hit yesterday, the event should start up for you when you launch Springfield.

Things kick off by requiring you to build a Brown House.  And then you’ll launch the mini event, with the first task requiring Homer to build a Mystery box, 4hrs.  And you’ll need Springfielders to collect State Pasta.

I’ll be back in a bit with more info as I run through it…

A quick note about the start time.  Totally my mistake guys I’m really sorry.  I wasn’t thinking about time conversion yesterday, and saw 1400 and was like “ok that’s 10am et”. It’s not.  Daylight Savings Time hasn’t started yet, in the US.  It starts during this event (March 10th), so EA accounted for Daylight Savings in the start time despite it not starting yet.  Which means, when this event ends 1400 UTC will be 10am ET, but when it started 1400 UTC is 9am ET.  So what’s the point of this?  Well a really complicated way to say I’m really sorry I screwed up the start time.  And don’t forget, in the US, Daylight Savings starts on March 10th.  

Note on the Amazon Zoom issues: Some players are reporting it’s fixed, others are saying it’s not. I think it depends on if you’re using Kindle or Fire and which version of each.  But honestly, I’m not sure.  I think if they fixed it on some, others may be following.  If you can hold out a little longer…

Also, per Poklfil in the comments,  Galaxy Tab S3 issues are now resolved. Continue reading

Love, Springfieldian Style is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Valentines Event Ends TOMORROW February 19th. 

As far as questlines go, what’s happened in the past is that the current prize you’re working on (on any questline) you were able to finish.  Once that current prize was completed then the questline disappeared.  

This means that you will want to make that final push to gather up all the things you want from the Event before it goes with the Event.

Not Yet Spring Cleaning: Mystery of the Brown House

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

2019 in TSTO has started with a very weird questline.  Alice Glick has finally arrived in Springfield, and she’s brought a very weird mystery with her that the kids need to solve.  The Mystery of the Brown House.

The writers have definitely taken an interesting twist with this one, so I thought i’d be fun to share the dialogue for those who may have quickly tapped through it.  So let’s take a look at this Mystery of the Brown house…

Should I Spend Donuts On the Stonecutters Returning Content?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’re a few days into 2019 and it’s time for our first update of the year!  Not Yet Spring Cleaning, the latest mini-event in Springfield, is full of content we’ve been asking for! (Springfield U, Alice Glick, Land Tokens..to say the least!) Of course, by now, we all know that a new mini-event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with returning limited-time premium items to tempt us.

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 Stonecutters content to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…
