Should I Spend Donuts On the Battle Dome?

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 and there are monsters everywhere to battle.  And to top it all off yesterday we saw a fun episode tie-in introduced in our game in honor of this Sunday’s 600th episode of The Simpsons…conveniently the THOH episode!

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 Battle Dome to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Hunger Games inspired Dome to your Springfield…


Decoration/Building:Battle Dome
Donut Price: 150 Dounts
Earns: 200 ico_cur_thoh2016_filmstrip_lg, 40xp/20hrs
Size: 14×16
 Obedience +20

Leaves Stores October 18th

-Three characters will have a 4hr task there (Bart, Martin and Milhouse.  To Practice Hungry Games. Earns $260,70xp)
-Animated when in use
-Earns Event Currency

-No questline associated with it
-It’s MASSIVE in size
-While it is animated, the animation is weak and unimpressive (to me).

Final Thought
Premium and Freemium
In my mind this is a pass for both groups.  It’s massive and unimpressive.  Not to mention WAY to expensive.  If I were you, I would avoid it and spend my donuts on something better.
I know there are those of you that will tell me I’m wrong, and you’ve already purchased it.  And that’s ok.  It may appeal to some of you.  But for those of you wondering about it, pass.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do.  And I can tell you as a premium player, I’m passing on this one.  Doesn’t excite (or impress) me enough to spend the donuts.  But whatever you decide just remember this will be leaving our games soon, so make your final decision before it leaves our games on October 18th…

What are your thoughts on the Island of the Battle Dome?  Will you be picking it up or have you already?  Where have you placed it in your Springfield? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. I hope to get this in the Halloween 2017 event, just for nostalgia and its only 65 donuts. Most of these characters already have premium jobs for 4 hours. 🙂


    • I just got it. You’re not missing anything. I was hoping to get the drive in theater. I’m 0 for 2 with the mystery box. *sigh!*


  2. I was about to buy it, but while trying to place it the dimensions seemed off. Yes, it is huge, but at the same time too small, like it has been shrunken down from its original size. Cancelled the buy, and so far I was able to resist. I am sure there will be better things next week. Or even tomorrow. Lately EA’s offers are always staggered, every day sonething new appears or disappears. Missed a few things in other events because I didn’t quite realize that they weren’t available during the whole event. At least it saved me some donuts. Nomnomnomnomnom…
