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 Flashback Bundle 1 or Suzanne the Witch to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your Springfield…
Leaves Stores October 15th
Items: Flashback Bundle 1
Contains: Ghost Pirate Airship, Mausoleum & Ghost Zapper
Donut Cost: 185 Donuts, originally these were 370 donuts (if purchased previously and indivdually) so this is a massive discounted price.
Bonus %: Airship earns 5%, Zapper earns 2.75%- so 7.75% combined
Earns: Airship, $135, 15xp/4hrs. Mausoleum, $200, 22xp/8hrs. (Zapper does not earn cash/xp)
What Do They Do: For the most part they just sit and look pretty…they DO NOT, I repeat they DO NOT, provide any benefit for this event. At least at this time.
Should I Buy Posts: Ghost Pirate Airship, Mausoleum & Ghost Zapper
My Opinion On them Now: It’s a good price, but really the only thing in there I like and would buy again is the Airship. I own all three items already (from previous events)…the Airship i just think is cool, the mausoleum sits in my graveyard section of my town…and the Zapper. Well I have no idea where my Zapper is honestly.
The Zapper was helpful when it came out, as it was used to zap flying ghosts. But now, meh. It just sits there and does nothing.
So what I would say is this…if you have the donuts and you really want this stuff go for it. Because nothing I say is going to change your mind anyway. BUT to everyone else…I’ll remind you it’s only week 1 of the event. There’s still LOADS of time left…and lots of these flashback bundles to come. The first one is a little underwhelming, so I’d save my donuts for something better….
Leaves Stores October 13th
Character: Suzanne the Witch
Building: Gingerbread House
Cost: 140 donuts
Earns: Gingerbread House earns $300, 30xp/24hrs, for the 2016 Halloween Event Suzanne will earn Event Currency (50/4hrs for her Training Task..). Suzanne, not the house earns the currency.
Should I Buy Post: Suzanne the Witch
My Opinion On Her Now: I own her, i got her in 2013 for free as a prize from that year’s Halloween. I never use her. I often forget she’s in my Springfield. And for her best task (Cast Wicked Spells) you’ll need Homer.
However, she does provide a benefit for this event with her 4hr task. But to me that donut price doesn’t justify the 140 donut price tag. So unless you’ve really been wanting her for a while, I’d pass.
And there you have it my friends, the breakdown on the two latest returning premium items to hit our stores.
