Springfield Showoff: Winter 2016

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 find ourselves sometimes 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 ūüėõ ) 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. Brag about it to the world. We want you to. (That and Bunny loves to see other designs and get inspiration from it.) Then keep your eyes posted to Addicts to see if YOU end up on our¬†“SPRINGFIELD SHOWOFF”.

New Year Quest and What’s Next

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Just popping in real quick with a little info. ¬†As some of you noticed this morning, the main questline and ability to earn prizes from the Winter Event has left our games. (not 100% sure if we’ll get an even removal update…my thoughts are likely not until later) ¬†However, the Gnome in Your Home game, and Mystery Box, remains. ¬†So continue to plug away at that Gnome and earn those tickets, as that will leave our games on the 3rd.

Also, you may have noticed a little questline that started up between Homer and Grampa Simpson. ¬†This is NOT Act 3. ¬†This is a short 1 part questline for the New Year, with a silly animated task for Grampa. ¬†When it’s all over, Grampa will still have the 4hr task to celebrate the New Year…

And if you don’t already have it, you’ll get the New Year’s Eve Ball as a gift from EA. (if you already have it you’ll just get a Happy New Year message)..

And that’s it for now. ¬†The next MINI Event (Homer the Heretic, as is already teased in the game), will hit our games on the 3rd (as is indicated in the files). ¬†This will also not be Act 3. ¬†This is a Mini Event. ¬†The Winter Event is over. ¬†There will be no mystery/hidden Act 3. ¬†This is it guys. ¬†It’s onto the next adventure in 2017…

But stay tuned to TSTO Addicts over the next few days as we recap 2016 and prepare for 2017! ¬†Including some fun posts coming later today…

The¬†seventh, and final, Act 2¬†Prize awarded at¬†74,950¬†ico_cur_xmas2016_brooch_lg¬†is Star Snowsuit Maggie (& Sacrifice Your Sheep to Odin), because¬†it’s¬†about damn time Maggie got her iconic costume…
