Screw that limited time crap! Like a bad smell, I'm back baby!!
After continuing to mess around with resetting my ipad, I finally broke down and gave it a full flush -- erased all the contents and settings. Then, during the setup I did NOT restore my backup. Once up and running, I logged back in to my Apple ID, downloaded Tapped Out and voila, back in!
No idea why this extreme would be necessary (grumble, stupid EA...) but at least I've finally found a method. I'm awfully happy that we really didn't have that much on our ipad that I would have lost/worked to restore.
