Happy Turkey Day!

Hey Howdy Hey Turkey Tappers!

It’s finally Turkey Day here in the US…the latest date it could possibly be!  It really feels like it took forever to get here this year.  And you know what that means…Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Apple and Pumpkin pie, football, stretchy pants, and insane sales at the mall!

You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always check out the details of the Thanksgiving (All American Auction) Mini Event here, the Black Friday Cash items here, the mystery boxes here, and the Gold box here as we take the day to celebrate the holiday with our families.  Although…..Super Safi will likely be lurking around the comments, as Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving last month.  So like a lot of you, Safi will be working today too!

However, we couldn’t let a day dedicated to being thankful go by without a special THANK YOU to YOU…our AMAZING readers!  We are so thankful for each and every one of you that take the time to read our posts and comment.  So from Patric, Wookiee, Safi and myself…THANK YOU!!  You guys rock and we couldn’t do this without you!

Here at Addicts, we’ve all been blessed in so many ways and we hope you have too! In that spirit, we’d like to invite you to take a moment and let us know in the comments below what you’re thankful for this Thanksgiving! We can’t wait to see what you say!

Happy Thanksgiving Tappers (whether you celebrate or not, we all celebrate through TSTO)!

PS Look for a special Black Friday Sale in the Addicts Shop to launch tonight!

App Store Update- Thanksgiving 2019

Updates below the fold

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Rolling out this evening is an App Store update for Thanksgiving 2019.  The update is going live in App Stores (confirmation for Google and Amazon, Pat said it’s not showing up in iOS just yet iOS as well), but it is NOT live in-game yet.

I’m in the process of pulling files and images on this, but my hunch is it’ll go live tomorrow morning around 10am.

It’s important to note that downloading this update will NOT remove THOH content from your game.  Those items are still set via timer.  So you’ll have until tomorrow to make purchases, even if you’ve downloaded the update.

Here are a few images of what’s to come with the update…

You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always check out the details of the Thanksgiving Mini Event here and the first round of Black Friday Mystery Box details here (round 2 will be up tomorrow morning)) as we take the day to celebrate the holiday with our families.  Although…..Super Safi will likely be lurking around the comments, as Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving last month.  So like a lot of you, Safi will be working today too!

Well, before we start to carve into Turkey (or Bunducken) we’d like to take just one more moment of your time. As I mentioned above, today’s a day to reflect on all you’re thankful for in life.

Addicts Housekeeping: Addicts Live

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So we were supposed to have a new episode of Addicts Live! today, unfortunately, we’re going to have to postpone it.  With traveling the last 2 days (if you missed the comments, my flight home from Florida was canceled due to snow and we ended up driving home…a whole lot of hours, in a car, through the night, with two little ones, not so fun), and a few other chaotic things going on for the guys it’s just too difficult to try and make it work today. So, the next episode will now be December 1st.  

In the next episode, we’ll talk about the Thanksgiving mini-event and preview Christmas.

I was planning on laying out Black Friday info on the episode today, so instead, I’ll just write up a post laying out the preview details for early in the week.

Hope y’all enjoy your Saturday, and hopefully, I catch up on some much-needed sleep!

Thanks guys!

Thanksgiving is Coming!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Thanksgiving has hit the files.  Which means we should see an update shortly.  This will be an App Store Update, so check your app stores for the download.  On the initial look through of the files, here are a few things I can tell you:

-This will be a standard mini event, running 2 weeks long.  So End Date is November 28th. (Christmas will likely start the following week)

-Everything for this mini-event will center around Moe…and his family

-Yes, Black Friday Mystery Boxes will be back.  Those will start on November 20th, and they’ll end on the 28th.

-This event includes 8 new buildings, 3 new characters, and 3 new decorations…as well as a ton of returning content.

I’m still in Florida (Disney World) until tomorrow night so Patric will cover the rundown post when the mini event hits.  Bare with us, as I won’t be able to do much (post wise) until I’m home.  Fortunately, it’s a standard mini event…pretty simple to finish.

So remember to check those app stores and enjoy the Thanksgiving Mini Event!

Reminder Thanksgiving Mini Event, Black Friday & Cyber Monday Deals Are Nearing the End

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend!  I’m popping in with a quick reminder that the Thanksgiving Mini Event, Black Friday and Cyber Monday Mystery Boxes (as well as the Cyber Monday Special…Itchy and Scratchy)  are all set to leave our game TOMORROW morning, November 27th. (Even though Cyber Monday stuff just hit)

This is different than past events because it’s ending on a Monday.  So just want to give you all a quick weekend reminder to finish up those prize tracks, grab those premium items and prepare yourself because everything’s leaving on Monday. Out with Thanksgiving and in with *fingers crossed* Christmas!

Note: This is odd because the mini event ends on a Monday.  We’re not sure if this means Christmas/Winter will be hitting on Tuesday or if they have something else up their sleeves.  Personally, for the Addicts staff, the next big event hitting on the 28th feels early…but it’s EA so you never know!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend friends!

Happy Turkey Day!

Hey Howdy Hey Turkey Tappers!

It’s finally Turkey Day here in the US!  And you know what that means…Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Apple and Pumpkin pie, football, stretchy pants and insane sales at the mall! (or in my case, for those who listened Episode 19 of Addicts Live, Mashed Potatoes, and Bread…check out Episode 19 to see how we all celebrate(d) Thanksgiving!))

Oh and a special Shoutout to my Mom and Dad who are celebrating their 38th Wedding Anniversary today.  Despite what EA says, the Magic is very much alive in their marriage! 

You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always check out the details of the Thanksgiving Mini Event here) as we take the day to celebrate the holiday with our families.  Although…..Super Safi will likely be lurking around the comments, as Canadians celebrated Thanksgiving last month.  So like a lot of you, Safi will be working today too!

And yes, the mystery boxes hit today.   We’ll have breakdowns for each box,  like we always do.  But be patient.  No rush to get everything, it’s not going anywhere today.

However, we couldn’t let a day dedicated to being thankful go by without a special THANK YOU to YOU…our AMAZING readers!  We are so thankful for each and every one of you that take the time to read our posts and comment.  So from Patric, Wookiee, Safi and myself…THANK YOU!!  You guys rock and we couldn’t do this without you!

Here at Addicts we’ve all been blessed in so many ways and we hope you have too. In that spirit we’d like to invite you to take a moment and let us know in the comments below what you’re thankful for this Thanksgiving! We can’t wait to see what you say!

Well, before we start to carve into the Turkey (or Bunducken) we’d like to take just one more moment of your time. As I mentioned above, today’s a day to reflect on all you’re thankful for in life & in that spirit, if you can, as we do each year we’d like to invite you to donate to a charity that’s near and dear to our hearts, Friends of Buyijja.  A fantastic charity founded by our own Patric to deliver “Unconditional Support for the Education and Welfare of Children…in an effort to deliver hope and opportunity.”   You can find out more about Friends of Buyijja by clicking the link below, and if you can we’d like to encourage you to make a donation to an amazing charity that’s doing amazing work.  Right now they’re working on a round of school supplies for the Children…

You can find out more, and make a donation here 

Happy Thanksgiving Tappers (whether you celebrate or not, we all celebrate through TSTO)!

THOH Update Removal is Live…And So is Thanksgiving (Updated and Complete)

Note: Yup, the update is still not available on iOS.  Happens sometimes.  May be a bug with it, could be Apple holding it up…at this point it’s available on Android and Amazon. EA typically releases updates for all 3 markets at the same time, and then it’s up to each App Store to approve them, some move slower than others. (which is why Amazon is often late)  This has happened with other games as well (see TQFS)…unfortunately just a little patience is required.  Hopefully it’ll hit iOS soon….

NOTE FROM PATRIC- I was one of you…no iOS. It landed this morning. HOWEVER…it didn’t just “show up.”  I needed to shut down my device completely…as in all the way off, not just clicking the screen. Shut. Down. Then go into the app store…and do a search for “The Simpsons Tapped Out.” That finally brought up the new updated screen.  Please try that before you write, reinstall, or freak out any further…Thanks!! 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Check your app stores because there’s an update on our hands!

And i’m actually pleasantly surprised by EA…as a nice touch they’ve added Turkeys to the Splash Screen and Icon….i don’t recall them doing that ever unless it was for a major event.

Two thumbs up with that EA, good job and a nice touch.

And of course, as you may have guessed, this leads right into the Thanksgiving mini-event!  No waiting!

I’ve got a LOT going on at work right now, so I’ll fully update this post later.  But for now know that you’ll need to complete Lisa’s first 6s task and that will launch the mini-event…

Now let’s go into more details…. Continue reading
