Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s Halloween in our pocket-size Springfields! Yes that magical time of the year when our towns turn dark, our water becomes mucky, there are monsters everywhere to battle and (as with all events) there are LOADS of items from Halloweens past to spend those sprinkles on!
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks as awesome as this 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 Halloween Party Walls, Film Permit, Cobblestone Roads or Fairy Kodos to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these Halloween inspired items to your Springfield…
I’ve lumped these four together because two are returning items and two are items that really don’t require too much analysis…so let’s quickly break them down…
Item: Halloween Party Walls
Contains: Pack of 10 Walls
Donut Cost: 20 Donuts
Bonus %: .10% on all cash and XP (each wall)
What Does It Do: It’s a wall, just a decoration.
Should I Buy Post: Halloween Party Wall
My Opinion on Them Now: Unchanged from last year. Take them or leave them…if you like them, get them. If not pass and move on.
Item: Film Permit
Donut Price: 90 Donuts (Act 1, it is expected to drop in price for Acts 2 and 3)
What Does it Do?: So, basically this membership card helps you earn MORE game currency when tapping Cameras in your neighbor’s town. It doubles the amount you’ll earn in a neighbors town.
Should You Buy It?: NO! This event is easy enough, this card is completely unnecessary. Don’t waste your donuts…
Item: Cobblestone Road Tiles
Donut Price: 40 Donuts (this is the price to unlock the ability to place the tiles. Each time after the 40 donuts spent is FREE. So it’s just a 1 time price of 40 donuts for unlimited Cobblestone Road Tiles)
What Does it Do?: Unlocks the ability to have the Cobblestone Tiles in your Springfield for decorating. Just like Road, Pavement, Dirt, Water etc tiles.
Once you’ve purchased this you’ll unlock the ability to PERMANENTLY add Cobblestone Road Tiles to your Springfield…even after the event is over.
My Opinion/Should You Buy?: This is one is one of those, if you like it get it items. There’s no benefit to it for your town other than pure decoration aspect. So if you’ve got design plans for it…pick it up. Otherwise save your donuts. Personally, I grabbed it. I like the idea of the Cobblestone Roads…and while I likely won’t do much in the way of Halloween with it…I do have some plans in Springfield Heights for it.
Oh and for those of you having trouble getting these to line up with your town square, I covered how to make it work on my town square post this morning which you can find here.
Leaves Stores October 17th
Character: Fairy Kodos Skin (Comes with Kodos if you don’t already have her)
Cost: 40 donuts
Should I Buy Post: Fairy Kodos (Costume), Kodos (note it’s the character for this bundle, i don’t think the 40 donut price includes the Ray Gun)
My Opinion On Her Now: 40 Donuts is a great price for this hilarious outfit. If you have them, spend the donuts, you won’t be disappointed. (especially if you don’t already have Kodos)
And there you have it my friends, the breakdown on the random odds and ends premium items in our stores. And yes, before you ask I WILL have posts coming on Hibbert Island and Hellementary School..those are next on my list to tackle.
What are your thoughts on these premium items? Do you own any of them already? Will you be purchasing them this year? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
