Springfield Jobs Act 2 is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that Act 2 of the Springfield Jobs Event…Ends MONDAY April 23rd at 1400 GMT (10am ET). (I’ll remind you again during Sunday’s Open Thread)

Also an IMPORTANT REMINDER…Starting tomorrow (Saturday) save your Daily Challenges (you can complete them, just don’t claim them), so that on Monday when Act 3 hits you’ll be ahead of the game.

Once the Act 2 is over you will no longer be able to earn Crown-Less Jewel Prizes for free. So get everything you can before it’s all gone! (but remember to keep earning Jewels if you haven’t unlocked all of the prizes because the closer you get to unlocking the next prize the lower the donut cost would be should you need to purchase it when the next Act starts…)

Crafting will STILL be available in the next Act.

For a rundown on everything that was included with Act 2 check out our rundown post here.

Be ready for the Act 3 to start at 1400 GMT (10am ET) Monday morning  (April 23rd)….

Showoff Announcement: The Springfield Jobs

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time…calling all Springfield designs of Around the World Proportions!  We’re getting ready to do the next Springfield Showoff featuring your Springfield Jobs inspired designs!  So prep those towns…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!

While we’re just over the halfway mark of The Springfield Jobs event, I wanted to make sure you all had ample time to prepare your towns for the next showoff.  Once you’ve got those designs planned out show us what you’ve done, because who doesn’t like seeing what others have done with all this new stuff?!  So send us your Springfield Jobs inspired designs and we’ll be putting up the Showoff post, featuring your designs on TUESDAY MAY 8th, 2018….so you’ve got loads of time to prep your towns.  Take your time, design as you see fit and send us the designs when you’re ready.

So work on those designs and send us some screenshots when you’re ready…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm ET Monday, May 7th, 2018.  Can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.

Seriously, there’s no rush to send in your designs (I’ll post another reminder during Act 3).  Take your time, there’s still a whole other Act to work through.  I just wanted to give you guys plenty of advanced notice on the next Showoff so you could have some plans in mind.  No rush on sending screenshots, you have 19 days…take your time. 

You can send your designs in two ways…either post a link to the image in the comments on this post or you can email them to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  We won’t be pulling images from anywhere else, so please if you want to be featured either submit in the comments below or email your images to us.

Note: PLEASE try to limit your submissions to only 1-2 of your favorite screenshots.  We like to try and let everyone showoff their town but it becomes difficult when some of you are sending in 7-10 images.  Pick your favorite areas and send them in (or if you stitch photos together, that works too).  We’ll try our best to get EVERYONE in, but please understand that sometimes we miss a photo or two.  If we miss you one week, we’ll try really hard to make sure we get you in the next week.  You’re always welcome to showoff your town, at any time, on our Flickr page.  We know a lot of you have awesome towns that you want to show off, but please try to stick with this week’s theme.  Remember, this isn’t a contest.  There’s nothing to win.  It’s just a fun way to showoff your town and get some design inspiration from your fellow Addicts.  🙂   

Do you want to be featured on the next Springfield Showoff?  Post your images  in the Comments below or email us your screenshots at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com. We can’t wait to see YOUR designs! (Need help with images, just ask.)

Springfield Jobs- Act II Calendar and Math for Getting It All!

See?  I do believe I told you that Act I was do-able…if you stayed on top of it. And it was. Some barely finished, while others, like myself, was done days ago.  And some, got struck sideways by the “RollBack Glitch.”  COME ON EA…Get on it!!

Well…for Act II, there is some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the daily minimums are actually smaller than Act I.  The bad news, is that this is because the act is spread across an even LONGER period of time.

How long?  How does 17.5 days strike you?  Well…for me, it strikes me like a steak and kidney pie in the face…good and bad. I am a bit of an Anglophile, so I am looking forward to all of the stuff from “Jolly Old England.” I have saved up a ton of crafting currency, and stockpiled donuts…so I am READY!

Let’s take a look at the numbers, and what you can win by hitting the targets!

Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Hugs Bunny, Shary Bobbins, Egg Council Guy or Easter Trees?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

In the midst of all the Heisting, Jesus has come back to Springfield to remind us that it is, in fact, the Easter Season.  That’s right, with Easter 3 days away it’s time to get a little holy (just a little…it is Springfield after all) with several returning Easter-ish themed items in our stores.

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.

There are a total of 7 returning items, either from Easters past or just something to remind you of the resurrection.  I’m going to break these up into 2 different returning posts because, well, it’s a lot of content and let’s face it..it’s still lent we all should be punished a little bit..

Anywho, for this second of two posts, I’m going to tackle the Stand-Alone portion of the returning content…as in Stand-Alone Characters and trees…because when you’re a pink fluffy tree it’s likely you’ll always stand alone.
