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.
So far we’ve broken down the pros and cons of the Mayan Bundles, the pros and cons of the character skins, the pros and cons of the Cool Combo, the pros and cons of the decorations and the pros and cons of the buildings, so what’s left? Father Sean of course!
Wondering if you should add Father Sean to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm spend button, let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this rapping Catholic to your town…..
Character: Father Sean
Donut Price: 135 donuts
-Returning item from Easter 2014, so if you didn’t win him in the Gold Box now’s your chance to grab him
-Premium character earns 50% more cash and xp on tasks.
-Comes with a fun questline
-BEST Character of the Easter Event, in my opinion.
-Great outside animations
-It was free during Easter, a prize won in the box
-No character interaction after initial questline
-Insanely expensive for a stand alone character
Long time readers of this blog know I LOVE Father Sean. He’s one of my favorite characters in the game, and I did some crazy egg buying during Easter just to get him. So it’s hard for me to find reasons not to buy him…BUT in this case I can find one. He’s INSANELY expensive. Granted many of us probably spent more than that in donuts to get him during Easter, but 135 donuts is still a ton to spend for a stand alone character in this game.
My advice…unless you’re a completest and won everything from Easter BUT Father Sean or you have a ton of donuts burning a hole in your pocket, this may be one you want to pass on. That being said…if I didn’t already have him, I’d buy him.

My best advice for ALL of the items in the Yard Sale, 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. 🙂
So there you have it my Tapping Friends…the final Should I Buy Guide for the 2014 Yard Sale!
