WDTCF- Happy Little Elves

Boy, our Springfield is stuffed full of ALL sorts of odd animals and creatures, huh? We have Dolphins, puking frog thing, zombie pets, and then some.

Ever since I started this game, there is one thing I just couldn’t understand that HADN’T been put in the game yet. I mean it was the entire reason Homer allowed the plant to blow up in the first place. IT STARTED IT ALL!!

What the heck is Bunny rambling on about? The Happy Little Elves of course! Homer was so addicted to the game, he forgot to do his actual job and blew up Springfield. Sound familiar to any of you? Are YOU on your game or this blog right now at work? Yup, thought so. 😛

Turbo Tappin’ Christmas 2013: Ebenezer Burns

Just past Christmas Day and EA has released the 3rd Community Prize. It is a skin for Mr. Burns that turns him into…well…I guess you can’t turn him into a Scrooge due to he already is one. Worse than one actually.

Well along with Ebenezer Burns, you will get a questline. So here is the quick tappin verison of that.

Community Prize #3- Bah Humbug Burns

800 Million Gift Bags in the Pot
 the Third Community Prize!

Happy Christmas every one and Bah Humbug for all you Scroogerinos!

Well, it’s obvious that the TSTO global community is full of generous tappers giving to their neighbereenos! Granted EA had to lower the totals to make our gifts obtainable but without anyone playing the game, there wouldn’t even be a “community” to label the prizes with, right? If there are Scrooges playing our favorite game, the Bob Cratchit’s far outnumber them for sure.

Should I Spend Donuts on Candy Kevin?

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 Candy Kevin to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this guy to your Springfield.

Tapped_Out_Candy_KevinCharacter: Candy Kevin
Donut Price: 40 donuts

-Reasonably priced.  At 40 donuts he’s 5 donuts less than the K9 Officer.
-Festive Character for your town

-Despite being a character in Tapped Out Candy Kevin does not come with any tasks, so he is a Non-Playable Character
-No Questline
-After Christmas there really is no point to have him roaming around your Springfield (like the Zombies at Halloween)

Final Thought:
Personally I think you’re better off saving your donuts and passing on this one.  Candy Kevin really provides no benefit to your Springfield and aside from the entertainment value of a man dressed around as a giant Candy Cane, it really has no return for your invested donuts.  So, unless you’ve already purchased all of the other premium characters or you’re a completest, I’d pass on this one and save your donuts.
Just remember whatever you decide this is a LIMITED-TIME character 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.
