Out with Halloween 2013 and in with Level 37!

TSTO Level 37 - DrewDabble

With Level 37 we get the Van Houten’s plus some cool new buildings and items.

The fog and dark water are gone. The blowing leaves stayed.

I’m also very glad to have Blinky back. I missed you, man!!!

SKINNERRRR?! – TSTO Level 34

TSTO Level 34 arrives with Springfield High School + Superintendent Chalmers, Sherri & Terri, Springfield Knowledgeum and its promo robot – Robby The Automaton and some additional decorations… Starts with Lisa ~ More soon 🙂 TSTO Level 34 - Simpsons Tapped Out - DrewDabble

TSTO – Life-Ruiningly Fun!

Great tagline and I do love the game, but DrewDabble does not want to end up like this poor fellow…

My ‘real world’ Jay-Oh-Bee is not going to permit much time to blog for the next few days, but then it’s the Labor Day Weekend holiday (in the US) and hopefully plenty of time for playing TSTO and blogging ~ AND reading TSTOTopix.com plus hanging-out at Tapped-Out UK… my two favorite TSTO sites!

BTW: Besides The Sunsphere, another of Knoxville Tennessee’s claims to fame is our massive Labor Day (BoomsDay) fireworks event – the largest in the country. If the weather’s good, 400,000 people will be here!

Of course if anything new shows up in the game this week, I will post about it. Which makes me wonder could be next? The Internet TSTO rumor-mill is very quiet right now; not much word on what’s coming next.

I’ve read Gil may be coming back with new promo in August. There’s one more week to go, so that would have to be soon… Labor Day Weekend maybe???

As for Level 34 – I can’t find anything much at all. But, Please EA, it’s time for Patty & Selma 🙂

The Sunsphere Arrives in My Springfield

The Sunsphere made it to TSTO! Bought it, rushed it and the boys are climbing it…

I love the dialogue too! Hope my fellow Knoxvillians share my appreciation of satire. Come on, we’re talking about a TV show that has made fun of everything from cities, states, countries to world political & religious leaders ~ just to name a few. 😉 Besides in the episode this item comes from – Nelson knocks it over with rock! 😀 I wish EA had included this as a 10s task (w/animation) for Nelson.

DrewDabble pointing at Nelson… Ha-Ha!
Nelson WOD FIR
WOD FIR

We’re no strangers to snarky comments here in Knoxville. The Wall Street Journal called us a ‘Scruffy Little City’ when the ‘WOD FIR’ opened back in 1982. Here’s a link to a recent story about it on a local TV station…

Anyway, here’s what I’ve done with The Sunsphere (work in progress). I love to think-up back stories to go along with the placement of certain items. The angle here is, Frink bought it off the ‘Gil’s List’ website and moved it to Springfield (i.e. London Bridge ). He’s going to retrofit it with all manner of sciencey gizmos and use it as his own private SETI ‘device’ by siphoning a few megawatts from the power plant via sponsorship from Burns and the Stonecutters‘.

Final thought: I grinned so hard, I about sprained my face when I zoomed in close and got a look at the animation of the pigeons wearing wigs!!! 🙂
