Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s Valentine’s Day in Springfield…and nothing says Valentine’s Day quite like Gil? Why? (you might ask..) Well because Valentine’s Day is all about selling you stuff you don’t really need but you buy anyway so you don’t look like a jerk….and who better to do that than Gil! 😉 How I know you may be trying to decide if Gil’s new offer is 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 der Krazy Kraut and Becky to your Valentine’s celebration? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Krazy Kombo (see what I did there.. 😉 ) to your Springfield!
Building/Decoration: Der Krazy Kraut
Donut Price: 150 donuts
Earns: $90, 10xp/4hrs
Conform-o-Meter: Gluttony +10
Leaves Our Games on February 17th
-Comes with a quest line
-Premium character earns 50% more on all cash and XP
-Becky has some fun outside animations
-Becky has a task at the Krazy Kraut
-Krazy Kraut is animated when in use (fan spins, smoke comes out)
-At 150 donuts it’s a bit expensive for a building/character that’s not a regular on the show. (not the most expensive, but still pricey)
-No character interaction after initial questline
I’m honestly not a huge fan of this one. It’s not a bad buy, but not a great one either. This is one of those premium “toss ups”, at least in my opinion. If you’re looking for more females for Springfield I’d pick her up….Just remember if you’re doing it for the female aspect, you will be getting Mona for free during this event (as long as you play the prize track…) And she’s a whole heck of a lot of fun!
This is one of those ones where you don’t quite know what to do if you’re a freemium player. It’s not a bad buy, but it’s expensive. The way I look at it, if you’re saving up for a regular character (like Luann or Manjula)…remember Becky is limited-time and once she’s gone she’s gone. However, the regular premium characters will still be there once Valentine’s Day is over. So if you’re really wanting Becky it’s not a terrible pickup. Just remember if you’re doing it for the female aspect, you will be getting Mona for free during this event (as long as you play the prize track…) And she’s a whole heck of a lot of fun!
Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would/wouldn’t do…and I can tell you I’m legitimately still on the fence with this one. 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 the 17th.
