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 😛 ) 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”.
What crazy hi jinx have you been up to this week? Do anything exciting? Watch any cool new movies? Been too busy in your “real” world to know what has been happening in Springfield? Well no worries, we have all the week crammed into a nice neat lil area for you to skip around and click to your hearts content.
Well today is President’s Day here in the USA and in honor of it EA has brought back Abe Lincoln from the 4th of July Event. For 150 Donuts Honest Abe & his cabin could be yours (hurry he’ll be gone by 3am EST on 2/18). But this isn’t a Should I Buy post, instead this is about what happens after you’ve added Abe to your town.
Once you’ve purchased this President a 10 part humorous quest will unlock for you. So I figured today would be a good time to Turbo Tap Abe!
For those of you who don’t know Turbo Tappin’ is our quick version of a walkthrough for the Level/Update/Character where we give you who starts the quest, the task and what you earn. This way you have your quick guide on who to keep free and when. This is great for our fellow Addicts who love to copy and paste the walkthrough into their device for quick reference. You can check out more of our Turbo Tappin’ Walkthroughs here.
So here we are on the eve of Presidents Day and as we announced when the Valentine’s Event launched…EA has brought back one of the Addicts Team’s FAVORITE building/character combos. Abraham Lincoln himself.
You will find him tucked away in your Premium items for purchase of 150 donuts from today until February 18th. He is a returning item from 4th of July 2013. This means he is LIMITED TIME. So snatch him before time runs out.
Valentine’s Day has arrived in Springfield! But, with all of the new Valentine’s premium items that are limited-time it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add Shauna to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this Tough Girl to your Springfield.
Character: Shauna Donut Price: 90 donuts Limited Time: Yes Comes With Tasks: Yes (See Below) Bonus: 50% more $$$ & XP
Pros: -Old Character making a return! Woo-hoo for bringing back old items!!
-ANOTHER Female added into your Springfield
-Comes with tasks, hence more in game cash to earn
-Who doesn’t want a Bad Girl?
Cons: -Limited Time.
-Costs a lil more than other Toughie Kearney who has tasks and bonus
Final Thought: I am most DEFINITELY buying her for both my A and B games. I am an Adroid user and was unable to get all the VD goodies from last year. SHE is the one I coveted the most. She has tasks that pay out at a great rate, not to mention quite amusing. I would HIGHLY recommend purchasing her for your town.
Just remember whatever you decide this is a LIMITED-TIMEcharacter and once she’s gone, she’s gone…so be sure to get her before the event is over if you’re thinking about it.

Wondering if you should add The Whale to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this Water Mammal to your Springfield.
Decoration: The Whale Donut Price: 300 donuts Dimensions: 7 x 14 Bonus: 7% more $$$ & XP Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +3000 Unique: No
Pros: -A BIG FRAKKIN WHALE IN SQUIDPORT!!!
-A HUGE Bonus Payout
-Animation: The Whale dives into the water and pops out while spouting water from the blowhole when tapped.
-Sound: Makes Whale calls when tapped.
Cons: -OH MY 300 DONUTS???!!
-Massive cost for an item that is not used by any characters or tasks in the games.
I did buy a Whale (well they are unlimited so I actually accidentally purchased two of them. Make sure YOUR confirm donuts spend is set to OFF!) It REALLY hurt losing 600 of my precious pink sprinkled sugary sweets. GAH! I do like the idea of a Giant Mammal in my Squidport. It does have amusing animation and a huge bonus…but honestly…I would say save your donuts on this one. You can purchase TWO Buildings w/characters for the cost it take for this ginormous water creature…with payouts and tasks. I just do not see a great benefit to it. Other premiums with better odds can also be purchased to equal the bonus payout and still hit under the 300 donut mark. So unless you are a completionist and HAVE to get every last item, I would save those precious donuts and pass on this one.
