Special thanks to Kim (kimberlyah794) for helping out with this post. Y’all may know Kim from the comments and from some guest posts during the Winter and Casino Event. I thought Kim would have a unique perspective on this as a player who missed out on the falls the first time around, and who has been wanting it to reappear in the game forever. Thanks for the help, again, Kim!
Hey, there, fellow Tappers! We’re neck-deep in poker chips here in Springfield and our friends at EA are tempting us to spend something else that is small and round – DONUTS! There are several new and returning items in the store to tempt you, including Springfield Falls. Wanting to know if it is worth spending your precious donuts? Never fear, we are here to give you the run-down this gorgeous decoration!
Decoration: Springfield Falls
Donut Price: 90 Donuts
Bonus %: none
Conform-O-Meter: Vanity +100
Unique: Yes, only 1 per town
This is a returning premium item originally introduced way, way back in the spring of 2013 during an episode tie-in for “What Animated Women Want,” Season 24, Episode 17 (for those who want to know).
-One of the most requested returning items in the history of the game
-Unique water feature for your town
-Animated (water flows down the falls and splashes at bottom)
-Expensive for a decoration
-No bonus percentage or payout
-It’s pretty big
-Was previously free
This is, without question, the most requested returning item in the game, which is probably why it costs as much as it does. That being said, IT’S ONE OF THE MOST REQUESTED RETURNING ITEMS IN THE GAME. Seriously, if you like this one and have ever wanted it, get it. You may never get another chance. This is the first time this has been offered for sale in the three years since it was originally released. Yes, it’s expensive and huge and offers no bonus, but it’s beautiful. Seriously, check out what Wookiee did with it in this design post (toward the bottom). I have been coveting the falls ever since I read it. I say, snatch it up!
It’s expensive and just a huge decoration that offers no advantage (no payout, no bonus percentage). Probably most freemium players will want to pass, unless you’re like me and have wished for this the entire time you’ve played the game.
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 bought this immediately when I saw it was for sale. However, this IS a limited-time item. So if you’re thinking about getting it, make your final decision before it leaves our games on March 29.
What are your thoughts on Springfield Falls? Will you be spending the donuts to bring it to your Springfield (or did you already)? Where have you placed it? Thoughts on the event? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
