Turbo Tappin’ Pride 2020: Main Questline and Prizes

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Another day, another update!  Thankfully after 8 years, TSTO is still alive and kicking.  Also thankfully we’re not reliving last year’s “dead zone” of TSTO.  Anyway, yesterday launched a new update in TSTO..Pride 2020.  Good, bad, or indifferent about this event, I’m just here to give you the info on the event.

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 similar to the previous mini-events, in that you’ve got to complete various tasks to unlock the prizes.

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

New Update: Pride 2020 Mini-Event Rundown


I’m going to say this right at the top, and it’s sad that I even need to say this, EVERYONE is entitled to their opinion on any given subject matter…good, bad, or indifferent.  However, this site is NOT the place to voice it.
As a reminder, and as is plastered all over this site, Respectful, constructive disagreement is welcome, but comments made to provoke others, be malicious, or distract from the purpose of this site will be removed.
You want to voice your opinion that this update is awesome?  Great, do it.  You want to voice your opinion that this update sucks?  Great, do it.  You want to voice your opinion about the subject matter at hand…good, bad or indifferent…DON’T.  Those comments will be deleted.
Let’s all try to have a respectful couple of weeks with this event.  Thanks!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well, it’s the Wednesday after a multi-event ended…so it must be mini-event update time in TSTO!  Yes, an all-new mini-event has hit our games, so let’s check out what’s in store for us this time…

Sorry guys I was out running errands and didn’t get a chance to post this when it went live!

It’s after 11am here on the East Coast of the US, so Pride 2020 is officially live in our games!  Remember to download the app store update if you haven’t already done so.  You won’t see this mini-event until you’ve downloaded the update.  And if you don’t see the update available try these steps:  Hard close your App store, clear your cache, restart your device.  When it reboots, open your app store and search Tapped Out.

What’s included with this event?  Let’s take a look….

Note: You’ll need Lisa and Homer free for 6s tasks to kick things off. 

Pride 2020 Mini-Event Ends June 3rd

Update Coming Later Today…

Update:  Sorry guys this one is on me.  I didn’t calculate the start time correctly…just looked quickly and said “ok 10am”.  Nope starts at 11am.  So it’ll start in about 30 minutes.  Sorry!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a heads up, an update is slated to hit in a few hours, Pride 2020. This will be another TSTO mini-event and will run from 10am ET today, May 20th, until 10am ET June 3rd.  So a standard 2-week event.

And if you haven’t already done so, be sure to download the latest update from the app store.  This update won’t make the event auto start (unless you download it after 10am ET), but it will remove the Wrestling Splash Screen and return TSTO back to standard TSTO.  

The prize track will consist of 5 new prizes…but two of them are costumes (for Homer and Marge).  In fact, even the premium item is a costume.  This event contains no new full characters…premium or freemium.

Prize track is 1 building, 2 decorations, and 2 costumes.

The premium bundle consists of 1 costume (for Smithers) and 1 building, for 150 donuts.

Also, there will be a Pride Mystery Box, 60 donuts a shot, full of items from Pride events of the past.

And there will be loads of returning pride content available for both cash and donuts, outside the Mystery box.

And that’s about it.   So look for the event to start today at 10am ET (about 3.5 hours from this post going live).

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s that time of the week again, time for the Addicts Weekly Open Thread!  So, let’s get the conversation going!  Oh and remember…just because this is posted here today doesn’t mean you can’t comment on it all week long.  This open thread will still be open for comments long after today is over!

Here’s where you can talk about anything you want to talk about…TSTO Related, Simpson’s Related or ANYTHING.  Just no Add me requests…those should go here.  We’ll give you a few suggestions (like most Sunday’s you can talk about the current episode of the Simpsons) but for the most part, you’re free to talk about ANYTHING your little Tapping Fingers desire…just keep it PG.

So, here is your Open Thread…..

The Simpsons are back tonight with an all-new episode, the season finale! What do you think will happen in the new episode?  What did you think of season 31? Favorite episode?

The Simpsons Wrestling Event is officially over, did you unlock all the prizes?  Thoughts on the event? What do you think we’ll see next?  (Likely a mini event)

Friday Filler – Getting Back to Normal…Mostly

Thank Grog It’s Firday!! 

So, today, in Oregon (the State of the REAL SPRINGFIELD) we began Phase One of the “Covid Re-Opening” plan.  We were able to do so, because in Lane County (which is also the home county to the REAL SPRINGFIELD), our numbers have been so low, as to be almost negligible.  But, this isn’t about that particular “Getting Back to Normal…Mostly.

No. Believe it or not, this is actually about “Getting Back to Normal” in TSTO…mostly.

Because, the fact is, during all of this recent Covid Craziness (and the most recent “TSTO Event”), the game just kept being the game.  Same routines. Same results. Same minor distractions. Same kinds of SNAFUs (which stands for Situation Normal All F’d Up), and is an old military term.  If you don’t believe in military SNAFU’s…then just wait until the military is in charge of doing the vaccines.  But, I digress…

The fact is…when you look at our Springfields, almost NOTHING has changed, except for a little more (a lot more?) clutter added to the landscape.

But for me…one of the most important characters in my game, is back to “normal.”

The Sounds of TSTO: Simpsons Wrestling

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

So let’s take a trip down memory lane via the sound effects of TSTO…

Springfield Showoff: Simpsons Wrestling

As we sit here frakkin files, pulling pics, and typing a million words a minute to get our readers the latest updates and information…we sometimes find ourselves forgetting to stop and enjoy our own games. More so our neighboreenos. So we try to make it a point to hop in n out of the towns now and then to see what cool things YOU are up to. So we have decided we want to continue to focus more attention (as if we don’t already 😛 ) on YOU…our readers. Time to time we will be peaking into your towns, checking our Flickr, and also the posts in the comments below to see what cool ideas and designs YOU have come up with to make your towns unique and…well…YOU.

So here is YOUR chance to show off all your hard work, time, donuts & in-game cash spent. Send us your work, no matter how big or small and brag about it to the world. We want you to! Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our “SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

Simpsons Wrestling Event is Nearing the End…

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a reminder that the Simpsons Wrestling Event Ends TOMORROW May 13th.

It’s been a long ride but it’s time for this event to be pinned.

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.
