In this days, the game is celebrating its 5th anniversary and the staff of TSTOTopix would like to celebrate with you all!
On Febraury 16th, 2012, the game was released on iOs for the first time ever, in France, followed closely by other countries in Europe, to be released then on March 1st in the US. 1 year later, on February, 2013, the game was also released on Android on the 6th and on Kindle on the 24th. The game has come a long way, with a total of one hundred and forty-four content updates, as of the Destination Springfield, Football 2017 and Valentine’s 2017 update. To more and more years of tapping! HAPPY BIRTHDAY The Simpsons: Tapped Out! Don’t forget to check our post with all the dates of the game since day 1!

What Changed with the Yellow Subterfuge Update?

Today’s update didn’t bring us the full holiday update as we hoped for, but it did get us a small episode tie-in mini-quest along with some other game changes. Here’s what they changed:

  • Menu items in the Kwik-E-Mart have changed order. The Regular Scratch-R (the one you get for free every 6 hours) is now above the Golden Scratch-R in the menu. I’m so used to it being where it used to be that I’m going to be hitting that Golden Scratch-R a lot. I guess it makes sense, have the free one on top, but it’s still annoying.
  • Thanksgiving menu items went away. Bye Parade Balloons!
  • It looks like they’re changing around some of the code related to the Scratch-R and Golden Scratch-R’s. I don’t see any difference in the odds. It could be they’re preparing to introduce the Platinum Scratch-R, which has been in the files for quite a while.

Always, with any update, double check your Confirm Donut Spend setting. I’ve never had it reset, but others have.

If you notice any other changes, let us know in the comments!

What Changed with the Black Friday Update?

These might have been here a few days ago when we got the app update on Nov 26th, but I just noticed them today when I got an in-game update. It brings us the Thanksgiving Day free donuts and quests, along with Gil‘s deal for tomorrow. So what else has changed? One big change, and a few small ones.

  • Big change here: The Thanksgiving Update will now END on December 3rd, 08:00 GMT, rather than December 5th. This means all the limited-time items (parade balloons, casino and the Tribal Chief) will go away. Get them soon if you want them! (Gil’s Black Friday promo will also end the same time on December 3rd.)
  • In the Thanksgiving update task “Attend a Wake for Thanksgiving”, among the long list of characters who can participate, Kang was changed for Kodos. But it’s in a section that’s commented out in the code, so it has no effect. Weird.
  • There’s a task named “Door Crash on Black Friday” where you can send 75 different characters to the Krusty Burger for 12 hours, but it’s disabled. Of course it’s possible it might get enabled by another update, but sadly it looks like we won’t get the chance.

That’s it for now, I’m really hoping that by moving up the end of the Thanksgiving event, even if it was only by 2 days, signifies that the Holiday event will be ready and hit our devices on the 3rd!

Premium Guide: Caesar’s Pow-Wow Casino, Tribal Chief & Casino Sign

I can honestly say that I was truly caught off guard with this year’s Thanksgiving update. Not that we got one but that we got an update that was much larger and longer one than the previous year’s. I’m also NOT complaining one bit about any of it and quickly snatched up all of the offerings of the update including Caesar’s Pow-Wow Casino along with the Tribal Chief. We’ve also been given another added bonus with this item and that is the Casino Sign which rewards independently of the casino and the Tribal Chief. And once again I am going to do my best to help you decide on whether this combo is worth your coveted glazed ones. Let’s get to it shall we?

Upcoming Updates: Thanksgiving and Black Friday (Revised)

Update from mrfy: the Happy Thanksgiving Day Part 1 quest is only active from 08:00 11/28 to 08:00 11/29 GMT. At 08:00 11/29 GMT, the Happy Thanksgiving Day Part 4 quest will be enabled. (08:00 GMT is 03:00 EST, btw.)

Hey friends, sorry for the lack of posts, it’s been a crazy week for me personally. Anyhow, there’s 2 mini-updates on the way for the Thanksgiving holiday and the resulting day of chaos and nonsense, Black Friday. I’ll divulge the details after the jump but whether you read this now or when it comes in-game, be sure not to just tap past the dialogue. While small, it’s also pretty witty and they take more jabs at current and previous happenings with the game.

To find out what exactly is coming, read on! If you prefer to not know until it arrives I would like to wish all of you who celebrate, Happy Thanksgiving from your friends here at TSTO Topix! Try not to eat too much and for anyone who dare go shopping on Friday, please be safe.

Turkeys in friends’ cities?

In Thankless Thanksgiving Part 9, Sacagawea Lisa has to Call Turkeys a total of 10 times. Each time she completes the task, a single turkey appears in your Springfield. When you tap the turkey, it makes a gobble sound and vanishes. Having Sacagawea Lisa call 10 times and then collecting a total 10 turkeys ends the task.

But while visiting friends we’ve noticed the turkeys wandering around and wondered what happens if you tap your friend’s turkeys. I tried it with my games and as it turns out, nothing bad happens. Tapping your friend’s turkey does cause the turkey to vanish and it increases your collected turkey count. But your friend still has the turkey wandering around, waiting for them to collect.

Spoiler below.
