Happy Saturday before Christmas! Yes in just two short days it’ll be Christmas! Spending the day today baking cookies and watching the BEST Christmas Movie…It’s a Wonderful Life. But wanted to pop in with a friendly reminder that the Holiday Bazaar shop has been restocked with items from Christmas past…it was restocked yesterday! I’ll be doing a full SIB post on them later in the week (well technically next week, since today’s the end of this week…but I think you get what I’m saying)
Pssst….even though tomorrow is Christmas Eve, it’s still Sunday…which means we’ll still have an Open Thread available for those who love the threads. 🙂

Update: It’s hit the files. I don’t see it in app stores yet, but it’s in the files. So update coming soon…
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Welp, it’s just after 6pm here on the east coast (although just after 3pm at EA HQ) and still no update. Either EA is still working on getting the update released or they’re doing the ultimate troll job on us. We’ll have to wait to see which one it is….
Meanwhile, I’m still here, checking away…so I’ll let you know if/when I see anything.
Just checked again…as of 6:10pm ET no update. Hang in there, we’re all in this together…
Welcome to another edition of From the Mouths of Addicts, where YOU get to sound off on anything and everything in the world of Tapped Out! This week’s post comes to us from one of our frequent commenters and guest blogger…Happy Tapper!
Sam has some thoughts, musings and wishes for Christmas in TSTO! Enjoy it my friends! Here’s HappyTapper’s (Sam)…and his Christmas Wishes -Alissa
Hello fellow tappers. My name is HappyTapper or Sam and I want to start this post by saying … I don’t like Halloween. I’m WAY more of a Christmas lad. Even though we got a pretty naff Halloween event, I’m crossing my fingers for a truly fun Christmas event so that I forget “The Event to Not be Named” (Xmas 2016). As soon as I knew Halloween was getting quite repetitive and boring, I started to plan my perfect Christmas in TSTO because I’m sad, have no life and have nothing better to do then rewatch Simpsons episodes and organise an event that I know won’t even have an impact. When I thought about Christmas in the game I got quite worried because I really couldn’t think of much left to add because there aren’t a lot of Christmas episodes to pull from and the Christmas episodes that they have normally stay local to “normal” Springfield so don’t have much Christmas content for the game. BUT after some Christmas episode rewatching I had an idea for a Christmas event that pulled together bits and bobs of Festive content that I’d really like in the game.
I know that EA will be very near to finishing the Christmas event so I’m not writing this post to give EA an idea, I wanted to publish my ideas and thoughts here because I thought that if I enjoy these kind of posts then maybe some of you will. So let the ramble begin … Continue reading →
It’s that time…calling all Springfield designs of Winter Festivity Proportions! We’re getting read to do the next Springfield Showoff featuring your Winter 2016 inspired designs! So prep those downs…because we want to see what you’ve done with your Springfield!
So prep those snow covered Springfields because we want to see how y’all incorporated those Winter inspired designs into your Springfield! So send us your Winter 2016 inspired designs and we’ll be putting up the Showoff Post, featuring your designs, on SATURDAY January 7th 2017.
So grab some screenshots of your town, or finish up those designs…just make sure to send your submissions in by about 8pm EDT Friday January 6th. Can’t wait to see what YOU have come up with.
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.)
In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where did THAT Come From?
And remember…if you’re looking for ways you can THANK your neighbors for visiting, tell them you LOVE their designs…or even yell at them for stealing your designs…you can hit up our THANK YOU Thread! The only place in the TSTO-verse where you can freely Thank and Admire your TSTO Friends and Neighbors!
