Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s Easter in Springfield and with the new event in town lots of items from Easter past have made their way back to the store.
As with events past EA has decided to make old items new again, and give players who might have missed out on something a second chance to get it. Of course that second chance doesn’t come with out a price, as many of the returning items are premium.
The Easter buildings making a comeback this year are: The Blocko Store & Banana Dictatorship…Johnny Fiestas too, if you count the freemium ones.
I know many of you have been asking if these items are worth your Sprinkles. Well before you hit that confirm button…let’s break down the pros and cons and take a look and see if these buildings are worth YOUR donuts!
This will run a little different than our typical Should I Buy posts. Basically I’ll give you a quick overview, some pros and cons & my opinion on it now…but I’ll also link you to the previous Should I Buy (if applicable) for more insight…
REMEMBER: ALL of these items will leave the store on 4/7/15 (Which is also when the event is slated to end). So make your purchases before then…or you’ll miss out.
So let’s kick things off with everyone’s favorite building toy…LEGOS and the Blocko Store…
Building: Blocko Store
Donut Price: 50 donuts
Payout: $200, 20xp every 12hrs
How You Got it Before: Won it in the Pink Easter Box
-Will be used by Chalmers, 2hr task there.
-Boosts Consumerism, one of the hardest areas of the conform-o-meter to max out
-Was initially free
-Animation isn’t that great, when in use the doors open but that’s about it
If you missed out on it last year during Easter now is your chance to grab it. And I strongly suggest you grab it. The Blocko Store is one of my favorites. I love the look of it and I don’t think you’ll regret picking it up.
If you have the donuts I say grab this one. I’m usually not a fan of buildings without characters, but I think this one is really designed well and I like the fact that it comes with a permanent task for Chalmers.
Building: Banana Dictatorship
Donut Price: 30 donuts
Payout: $135, 15xp every 8hrs
How You Got it Before: Won it in the Gold Easter Box
-Can be placed on Squidport
-Will be used by Bernice Hibert
-Only impacts Obedience, lately one of the easier areas to max out
-Looks cool, but not bright and colorful like the Blocko Store.
Just like the Blocko Store, if you missed out on this one now’s your chance to get it. It’s at a fair price and a chance to grab a building from Easter past. If you have the donuts grab it…but I will say given the choice between the two, I’d rather have the Blocko Store.
Personally, if I was a freemium player I’d pass on this one and go for the Blocko Store. I do think the store is the better investment. So if you’re limited on donuts, I’d pass on the Banana Dictatorship.
Oh and for those wondering…yes grab Johnny Fiestas! It’s a freemium building and a no brainer…grab it ASAP.
Just remember…whatever you decide you have until April 7th to make your final decisions or these buildings will once again disappear from the store! So be sure to make your decisions before then.
