Should I Spend Donuts on the Trashcan Fire?

Christmas has arrived in Springfield!  But, with all of the new Christmas 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 the Trashcan Fire to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this decoration to your Springfield.

Tapped_Out_Festive_Trash_Can_Fire
Decoration: Festive Trashcan Fire
Donut Price: 3 Donuts
Conform-O-Meter: +400 Vanity
Unique: No

Final Thought:
At 3 donuts the Festive Trashcan Fire is one of the cheapest premium items you can purchase.  However, unless you think it’s something that you absolutely need to complete a certain look in your town, this is something I would pass on.  There really is no great benefit to adding it to your Springfield.

Just remember whatever you decide this is a LIMITED-TIME item and once it’s gone, it’s gone…so be sure to get it before the event is over if you’re thinking about it.

Should I Spend Donuts on the Reindeer?

Christmas has arrived in Springfield!  But, with all of the new Christmas premium items that are limited-time it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on.

Wondering if you should add the Reindeer to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this decoration to your Springfield.

Reindeer
Decoration: Reindeer
Donut Price: 20 donuts
Conform-O-Meter: +200 Vanity
Unique: No
Bonus: 0.50%
Bonus % Per Donut Spent: 0.025%

Final Thought:
The Reindeer can be a fun little addition to your Springfield (and Christmas Village).  They do pay out a bonus percentage (although not the greatest in the world) and offer a conform-o-meter boost to your Vanity rating.  This is something I did purchase myself, I like the addition to my game. (Don’t forget, if you log into your game Christmas Day…you will get one for free.)

Just remember whatever you decide this is a LIMITED-TIME item and once it’s gone, it’s gone…so be sure to get it before the event is over if you’re thinking about it.

Merry Christmas from TSTO Addicts!

Hey Howdy Hey Gift Grabbing Tappers!

It’s FINALLY Christmas Day and you know what that means……SANTA’S HERE!!!!  You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always find the latest on the Christmas Update here), as the Addicts staff celebrates Christmas by tearing open packages, over indulging on Christmas cookies…oh and I guess spending time with our families too! 😉  (and yes for one last time in 2013 I’ve let Bunny out of the basement and Wookiee out of the attic to spend the day with their family) But don’t you worry we’ll be right back at it tomorrow!  (and of course we’ll pop in with any new developments that happen throughout the course of the day in the world of TSTO…we’re Addicts too ya know!)

Now for a little Christmas fun…and something off of the TSTO world.  For the previous 2 holidays we’ve given you a glimpse into our personal lives…with our favorite Halloween traditions and THOH episodes and what we were most thankful for at Thanksgiving…so how could we let Christmas go by with out sharing another little glimpse into our personal lives with our fellow Addicts?  So we thought it’d be fun to share with you our favorite Christmas memories.  And with out further ado let’s get things rolling with our resident fuzzball and his favorite Christmas memory…

Should I Spend Donuts On- Snow People/Animals

Once there was a snowman, snowman, snowman
Once there was a snowman, tall, tall, tall.
In the sun he melted, melted, melted.
In the sun he melted, small, small, small.

Thanks childhood songs. 🙂
