Should I Spend Donuts On: The Mayan Combo

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Yard Sale time in Springfield & what’s old is once new again!  But, with that limited-time label, and the added pressure of these being some highly coveted items, it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on.  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 a little Mayan fun to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm spend button, let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this dooms day trio to your Springfield….

Mayan Marge Mayan Homer 1200px-Mayancalendarwhole_menu  Unlock_Mayan_God

Combo #1: Mayan Marge, Mayan Homer, Mayan God & Calendar
Combo #1 Donut Price: 300 Donuts

Combo #2: Mayan Marge & Homer (if you already have God/Calendar)
Combo #2 Donut Price: 170 Donuts

Option # 3: Mayan Marge (if you already have Homer/God/Calendar)
Option # 3 Donut Price: 90 Donuts

Dimensions: Calendar is 4×4
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +100

Pros:
-Premium character skins (now), earns 50% more cash and xp on all tasks. (excluding Mayan God)
-Comes with a short questline, that involves BOTH Mayan Marge & Mayan Homer (with dialogue from Mayan God)
-Great new animations for Mayan Marge (and Mayan Homer has some fun ones too)
-Once Limited Time Characters/skins (from WAYYYY Back to Halloween 2012) now available again.
-Mayan Marge is a limited-time, never before released character

Cons:
-When Mayan Homer & Mayan God were originally released they were free
-Mayan God is a Non-Playable Character (NPC)
-Expensive…no matter what combo you get it’s expensive for just skins and an NPC
-Calendar does not add a bonus multiplier & it can be large and awkward to place in your town.
-Questline is a bit outdated, since it’s really meant for 2012

Final Thoughts:
I purchased it.  (are you surprised?)  I’m a completest, what can I say?  😉  However, this was the ONLY items in the yard sale that I didn’t currently have, so it was easy to justify.  These characters are from a time when I didn’t play TSTO (I started on my iPad in very early December 2012…and started again on my Android during Whacking Day 2013), so for me it’s awesome to have these TSTO “artifacts” in my game.  I love Mayan Marge, and the premium rate she earns.  She’s got some fun animations & I really like the colorful skin!

However, it’s a steep price to pay for 2 skins, an NPC & a non-premium decoration.  My best advice is to see what other items you might be coveting during the Yard Sale and weigh each option BEFORE you make any purchases.  The “sale” ends August 4th…so you have some time to make up your mind about what you want to do.  🙂

PS…I DO think the 90 deal for Mayan Marge IS worth the donuts….if you have the other characters & the donuts to spare.
PPS…I’m on the fence about the 170 for Mayan Marge & Homer.  It works out to 90 for Marge and 80 for Homer…

Now let’s take a look at the Premium tasks for Marge & Homer….as I mentioned above, the Mayan God is an NPC so he does not have tasks (he’ll just roam around your Springfield…oh and if you store the Calendar, you’ll store him too)

  1. Looks like something crazy happened for me. I bought Mayan Marge, but don’t have a Mayan Homer option and Mayan Marge’s questline is locked and can’t start.

    Very frustrating to be limited to only partial tasks. Any suggestions?

  2. Does this mean that you have to have the calendar for Mayan Marge to be able to do her outdoor tasks? With the current deal (June 2017), they’re sold separately, and I have no interest in buying the calendar/god combo. (I might have, if the good had been a character, not an NPC.)

  3. I really wish this was less expensive. I might buy it for 150-200 donuts IF the Mayan god was a playable character and IF the calendar added to my percentages. When I think of what else I could buy for 300 donuts, I’d choose something else every time.

  5. I’m not quite a completest, but I was really excited to see this option. I love the stories.

    I’m not entirely sure what I expected in terms of quest/storyline but I was woefully disappointed. I knew that I wouldn’t get to play the entire Halloween 2012 event, but Mayan Marge’s new storyline was very short and there was nothing of the past storyline for Mayan Homer and Mayan God. Now I’m gun shy about buying anything else from the Yard Sale.

    • We’ll have complete pros and cons (with questlines) for everything up this week. The sale doesn’t end until August 4th, so you have plenty of time to make your decisions. 🙂

  6. So… Mayan Marge’s 8 hour task is with Homer? Like Maude’s 8 Hour and Hugs Bunny’s 8 hour? They couldn’t have made this task be 4 hours or 12 hours? Looks like I won’t be buying Mayan Marge after all.

  7. If you are spending then this is the package to get. New skins and there is a lotta skin, new tasks new decoration and a new character to stalk your town.

  8. Also a completist I’m gonna have to. It looks great. I love skins they add so much variety to the game. And I never consider NPC’s a con. I love them as much as my regular characters. Now that money is no longer an issue. I didn’t even flinch when I bought Sit And Rotate. So I love tapping on my raccoon and listening to him chirp while he adorably rolls on his back. So cute

  9. I have buyers remorse when I realised that Mayan clock does FA and that Mayan God is NPC – I would have been better spending less than 300 on Cool brown house and cool homer, bare chested willie and ninja homer with decoration – that’s what I get for NOT doing my homework!

    I bought cause I liked Mayan stuff and always wanted it from start – I regret cause it was the wrong choice (I thought Mayan God was a normal character)

  10. Tapped out life

    So so so soooo happy this came back! I have been wanting all this Mayan stuff since I started playing the game early this year. 300 donuts was way too high of a price tag but it was worth every little sprinkle. Love this! Thank you EA, you got this one right!!

  11. This is one thing that I was really thinking about, I’ve got the full pack on offer at the moment, but seeing as neither the God or Calendar do anything it seems a little pricey so now I’m not sure! !
    I got the ice god foot thing straight away as the bonus payout was really worth having, just having a mull over the ‘skins’ and the CBH.
    Might wait until your ‘should I buy’ on those as we have some time.

    BUT REALLY WANT TO BUY EVERYTHING 🙂

  12. FYI, Bed Bath & Beyond has a sale (in store only) on iTunes gift cards. 15% off – I stocked up for the yard sale 😬

  13. I say the Mayan package is worth it. The whale is 300 donuts, but at least with the Mayan package has 4 things that come with it. It took the Mayan God nearly 2 years to finally make a return. It’s going to be a while for it to come back.

    Mayan Marge is what I’ve been waiting for, that’s why i really wanted to buy it.

  16. I jumped on the cool brown house and character skins right away. I’m undecided on the Mayan combo, at 300 d’oh-nuts it’s a bit much. I will most likely get them considering they are from so far back and chances are they might not be back for a long time.

    Purchased Marge. That was the only thing I didn’t already have. I’ve been playing since July/August 2012. I wonder if they’ll bring back the super collider and the black hole. Those are some of the only items that not a lot of people have.

  18. I am struggling with this one. I am sorta of a character set completest I can easily disregard other premium items. The Shadowed Mayan God in the Halloween 2012 set mocks me every time I see it (didn’t start playing until waking day.) All I really want is The Mayan God to complete the set but 300 sprinkles seems a lot even with the other items you get with it.
