Friday Filler – We Binge, Because We Can…

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

I’m not gonna lie.  I am rushing this event like crazy. The first reason is my fault…I’m super busy right now.  The second reason is a bit more complex.

It’s not that this event is boring as all get out (it is), or that the content is kinda strange (it is), or even that the dialogue isn’t worth reading (it is).  It is really because we have slowly been trained as a society to take the shortest path, to the greatest reward, offering almost instant gratification, in almost all parts of our lives.

The urge to binge is all around us.  The urge to press a button and get what we want, faster than ever, and in some cases as much as we want (and often more than we need) has never been more prevalent.

And EA, and the way this game has evolved, has done this to us, and to the greater game overall.

I’m Back!

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just a quick note to let you know that I’m back from a wonderful (and much needed) Disney World vacation!

Looks like Pat did a great job keeping you all up to date with the Black History Month update, so I’m going to play a little catch up myself and see where I need to fill in.

So look for my very detailed posts starting Monday, and I’ll try to crank out as many as I can for you guys.

And yes, I have some thoughts about this event.  I’ll share them, as well as details about our Disney trip, with you in Thursday’s Musings.

Until then, use this post to let me know what info you still need on week 1 of this event and I’ll try to work on those first.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

P.S. You can find more photos and videos of our Disney trip on my Instagram (@AddictsAlissa), just tap the circle that says Disney 2020. But I’ll share more photos and details with y’all on Thursday. 🙂

Friday Filler- When the Math Adds Up To Mayhem!

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

I’m not going to “go there,” at least not much.  But this has been one of those “Math Weeks” that just makes people crazy!  Simplified, modern caucuses in Iowa, that turned out to be anything but.

Then there was the extremely predictable Senate votes…that turned out exactly how everyone expected, and yet was reported like it was not expected.

And then, there is the very, very, very odd update math for the TSTO Black History Month, that defies logic, and puts you in a position for loads of tapping, for the same results.  Four Acts, over 5 Weeks, that start and stop, over nine and ten day periods.

It’s almost as if EA is conspiring with the calendar to make things more difficult, without doing much more than flipping a couple of minor switches in the programming.

Let’s break this down (not the politics…that’s permanently broken). I mean the event math…

Should I Spend Donuts On – Hibbert’s Father and “Moving On” Combo?

There are several New Premium offerings in this event (at least one each week).
The first one out of the blocks, is a chance to get Hibbert’s Father and “Movin’On” a building that is OK…but, weirdly more associated with the last update (Days of Future Past).

To Quote our fearless (but vacationing) leader, “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.”

Is this combo worth it?  Let’s take a look!

Black History Month Calendar and Math You Need to Get It All!

So, sometimes you really do have to remember the old saying, “Be careful what you wish for.”   Because for some time now, we have been whining about the same old 4 week events.

Well…like I said…be careful what you wish for.

The math on this one is waaaaaaay weird…and yet so much the same!

Follow along if you can.
