Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Earlier today Ol’ Gil appeared in Springfield. This time trying to talk us out of buying something…the Kwik-E-Mart Central Office. For 145 donuts this HQ of Kwik-E-Marts World Wide could be yours….but you only have until Wednesday December 2nd to make up your mind.
Now I know you may be trying to decide if this are worth YOUR donuts, but don’t sweat it! We’re here to tell you what’s worth the donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add the Kwik-E-Mart Central Office to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this office to your town!
Building: Kwik-E-Mart Central Office
Donut Price: 145 Donuts
Earns: $500, 45xp/24hrs
Conform-O-Meter: No impact
Unique: Yes, only 1 per Springfield
Leaves Stores on December 2nd
-Unique looking building for Springfield
-Comes with a 3 part questline
-Apu will have a 12hr task here, Flanders has an 8hr task there & Hank Scorpio has an 8hr task there. All pay premium rates.
-Animated when in use (light comes from the front doors, and they open)
-Pricey for just a building without a character
-Huge. Not only in the footprint, but in height.
-Doesn’t really belong in Springfield…
This isn’t the greatest buy in the world. It’s, in my opinion, over priced for just a building. However, it is nice that Apu, Flanders and Scorpio will continue to have a task there (I really hate buildings that don’t get used). This is one of those “meh” buildings in my opinion. It’s a neat looking design, and nice that it’ll get used, but really it’s over priced for what it is/does. In the end if it’s something you like pick it up, otherwise pass. You won’t be missing much.
Stay away from this one. Personally I just don’t feel that this one is worth your hard earned donuts. The benefits on this, while there are a number of them, just don’t outweigh the price for me. So if you’re a freemium player I’d stay away from this one.
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do…and I can tell I’ll probably pass on. However, this IS a limited-time item. So if you’re thinking about getting it make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games on December 2nd.
Here’s a look at the questline for those that are curious…
Rocky Mountain Why Pt. 1
Manjula: Apu! It’s time you showed some ambition in your career. I want you to apply for a promotion to management in the Kwik-E-Mart Central Office.
Apu: But dearest wife, think of the commute. It’s a seven-hour mountain trek each way! I’ll never have time to see you or the children. Okay, putting it that way, I’ll definitely apply.
Make Apu Apply for a Promotion- 2hrs, Earns $175, 40xp
Rocky Mountain Why Pt. 2
Apu: My dream has come true! I have been promoted to management in the Central Office!
Gil: Welcome aboard! Or should I say “aloft?”
Apu: You’re working here, too?!
Gil: You betcha. They had just the job for me, based on my previous work experience. The “Complaints” Department.
Apu: I thought the Kwik-E-Mart corporation hated handling complaints.
Gil: They do. Why do you think we’re on top of a mountain?
Make Apu Manage Complaints Department- 1hr, Earns $105, 26xp
Make Springfielders Hike Up a Mountain to Complain- x10. 1hr, Earns $105, 26xp.
Rocky Mountain Why Pt. 3
Gil: Don’t you just love working up here on top of a mountain, Apu? The fresh air, the great view, the thrill of stumbling across some mountain climber’s frozen corpse.
Apu: I suppose. But winter is coming. What if we get snowed in?
Gil: It’ll be great! We’ll have hot chocolate, play cribbage, and talk, talk, talk about our many problems and failures.
Apu: Okay, I’m convinced. I’m going back to my old store right now!
Make Apu Work a 24hr Shift- 24hrs, Earns $600, 150xp
