Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Whack…ing…Day. Whack…ing…Day. Whacking Day. Whacking Day! Whacking Day-Whacking Day-Whacking Day WHACKING DAY!!
The Whack is back jack! As in Whacking Day is back in our Pocket-Sized Springfields! After 3 years of begging EA, newer Tappers finally have their wish in a mini Whacking Day Event! Well really a Whacking Day sale…but hey it’s your chance to get some of that Whacking Day swag you may have missed from way back in 2013!
While there’s loads of free Whacking Day items to get your whack on, you can see them in the rundown post here, there is one premium bundle looming large on the minds of many Tappers! Now with that limited-time label I know it can be tempting to buy it right up because it’ll be gone soon. But don’t sweat it! We’re here to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

I’m going to do this a little different and just go straight to my opinion. I think the pros and cons pretty much weigh themselves with this one…
If you missed Whacking Day originally you may want to pick this up. It’s several requested items with a great return on them (bonus %) for the cost. However, buy it only because you like it (or you need the bonus %)…the items have no real practical purpose. They won’t do anything in your town. They’re just decorations. Premium decorations and that’s in. So get them if you like them, otherwise pass.
Here’s my take Freemium players….unless you need the bonus % (and most of you don’t) pass on this. While 100 donuts for that nice 10+% bonus might seem tempting, the reality is these items aren’t anything spectacular and you’re better off spending the 100 donuts on Luke Stetson.
So unless you’re hell bent on getting these items, or you really really really need that bonus %, 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 won several of these already, but I’ll be passing on the combo itself. But whatever you decide just make sure you do so before it leaves our games on May 12th.
And there you have it, the details on the Whacking Day Bundle!
