Should I Spend Donuts on the Stonecutter Lodge & Number 1?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

We’ve got a little Stonecutter Black Market sale going on in Springfield right now.  Items from the original Stonecutters Event are back in Springfield for a limited-time.  While a lot of players will already have the items, I know many TSTO noooobs are wondering if any of the items are worth adding to their Springfield.  So we’re here to break it all down for you!

Wondering if you should add the Stonecutter Lodge and Number 1 to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm spend button, let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this secret lodge to your Springfield.

Both #1 and #908 (as well as all Stonecutters that you’ll pay donuts for now) now earn at a Premium Rate, so 50% more cash and XP.

Pros
-Restarts the Game of Stones questline
-You’ll get an extra skin with it (#908)
-Will unlock the ability to purchase other Stonecutters
-Lodge will be used
-It’s the Stonecutter Lodge, one of the more requested items in TSTO history.

Cons
-Was originally offered as a free item
-Pricey
-While #908 has some great tasks, #1’s tasks are pretty lackluster
-Number 1 is not voiced

Final Thoughts
Premium
Go for it.  If you missed Stonecutters over the summer & you have the donuts to spend, go for it.  It’s a good combo of building and character.  It will also give you a great feel for Stonecutters, even if you don’t pick up any other items.

Freemium
You’ve got 5+ days to decide on this one.  I do think it’s a good buy, with the building and character combo.  BUT it is pricey, especially since it was all free last year.  So this is a tough call.  Honestly, i’d say if you’ve seriously missed having these items in your town over the last 7 months get them.  But if you’ve done ok with out either & donuts are hard for you to come by, I’d take a pass on it.

If you’re only going to get 1 Stonecutter item from this event…this is the one I would get (that costs donuts.  Obviously get all the freemium stuff you can)

Here’s a look at Number 1’s Tasks:

Task Length Earns Location
Quick Drink at the Stonecutter Lodge 1hr $105, 26xp Stonecutter Lodge
Attend a Secret Meeting 8hrs $420, 105xp Stonecutter Lodge
Nap at the Stonecutter Lodge 12hrs $600, 150xp Stonecutter Lodge
Feast at the Stonecutter Lodge 24hrs $1,000, 225xp Stonecutter Lodge

  1. I also just bought it from the yearbook and no mission started…I don’t have anyone free yet.

    The only mission that started was something with Latte involved which gave me Springfield Height latte’s….

  2. I just purchased/won the Stonecutter lodge from the Yearbook and annoyingly no questline started. Was the Questline removed when it was moved to the Yearbook or is this a fault?

    • Do you have the Stonecutter skins? If so, do you have the characters free?

      • I have none of the other skins yet. But Homer & No1 were both free. I have placed the lodge in storage and taken it out and shut down/re-opened the game to no avail.

        • I’m not sure what changed but i logged into the game today and the dialogue from No1 started and the Homer skin unlocked.
