Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
So we’ve got ourselves a fun little episode tie-in on our hands! Ok well maybe not fun to some of you…more like a distraction from the casino event. BUT to me they’re fun. I always love episode tie-ins because they get me excited about the upcoming episode.
Anywho…this week’s episode tie-in is all about Mars. Sorta. And of course, as with all episode tie-ins, a few new premium items have arrived in our stores to try and entice us to go “all in” with this week’s episode. But with that limited time label it can be intimating trying to decide what you should spend your donuts on, or what should be a total pass. But don’t sweat it, we’re here to help you break down the pros and cons of each item.
Wondering if you should add the Mars Colony to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of this Mars hot spot to your Springfield…

Premium or Freemium:
Honestly, this is a total pass in my opinion. It’s oversized and overpriced. Complete waste of 200 donuts. Other than it looking cool it really just takes up a ton of space and serves no benefit to your town. So personally I’d pass on this one…
Of course in the end it’s completely your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and I can tell you I’ll be passing on this one. After playing around with it in my B town, it’s just not worth the donut investment for me. I’d rather spend my donuts on something else. Of course that’s just my opinion, I know y’all will have your own takes on it. So whatever you decide just be sure to make your final decision before it leaves our games on March 16th.
