Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
YeeHaw! The Wild West has arrived in our pocket-sized Springfields! With bandits to tie up, guns to sling, gold to pan & gold ole’ Homer getting everyone all riled up! So bust open the vaults and grab those donuts because there are loads of new Wild West themed premium items in our stores!
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything because it’ll be gone soon. But don’t sweat it! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.
Wondering if you should add the Old Mine to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this bandit generating gold treasure trove to your Springfield…
Building/Decoration: Old Mine
Donut Cost: 180 Donuts
Earns: 4+/4hrs (Bandits generated will depend on your Town Plaza Level)
Bonus: Adds 4% bonus on all cash and XP
Conform-O-Meter Impact: Tree-Hugging +300
Leaves stores on May 30th…
-Comes with a questline (1part)
-2hr Task for Snake, Earns $110, 27xp
-Always animated, water flows. When Tapped a mine cart goes around the tracks and crows fly out.
-Adds a nice bonus %
-Fits nicely with the western look if you’re doing a western area in your town
-Bandits generate fairly quickly on their own, so that really doesn’t add a benefit to this
Personally, I don’t think this is worth the 180 donuts. It’s just two high of a cost for not enough return. If it came with a character I might think differently. But 180 donuts is just too pricey for a decoration IMO.
However, I know there are a bunch of you who will love the look of this and grab it. And it’s not a bad buy for premium players…I just don’t think it’s worth it.
So premium players, pass. Unless you absolutely love it and can’t live without it. Save your donuts for Act 3.
Stay far, far away from this one. I know it’s shiny and attractive, especially with that bonus %…but stay away. It’s not worth the price. You’ll end up regretting spending the 180 donuts…that you could have used to purchase Luann or Duffman..
Freemium players pass.
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 plan on passing on this one. Just not worth it to me. Whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision by the end of the event…because this mine leaves with the Wild West..
Here’s a look at the questline it comes with:
The Old Mine
Snake: What a totally rad old mine! I bet there’s some neat artifacts down there. I think I’ll relive the glory days a bit and check it out!
Make Snake Dig for Artifacts- 2hrs, Earns $110, 26xp
Snake: Alright, time to like, see what I’ve got here. Some kind of time travel car from the 80’s–an android head, and pictures of cave-man graffiti. So lame! I don’t regret my career change to professional criminal at all!
And that’s it, the complete breakdown of the Old Mine!
