Should I Spend Donuts On Nightmare Willie?

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 Halloween themed items 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 House Nightmare Willie to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Spider to your Springfield…


Decoration/Building: Nightmare Willie
Donut Price: 75 Dounts
Bonus: 2.5% bonus on all cash and XP
MAG Points When Placed: 375ico_mhub_thoh2016_eventlevels
Size: 5×5
 Vanity +200

Leaves Stores November 15th

-Fun animation when tapped, disappears into the sandbox and reappears
-Decent (but not great) bonus % associated with it

-Not an NPC, it won’t roam around Springfield.  Stationary (except when tapped and it disappears)
-No questline associated with it

Final Thought
I’m lukewarm on this one.  It is a fun animation, but I do think it’s overpriced for what it is/does.  Bottomline for premium players….if you have fond memories of this episode, are excited about the animation or just really like spiders pick this one up.  Otherwise pass…you won’t be missing that much if you skip it.

Personally I think this is a freemium pass.  It’s just not worth the 75 donuts for freemium players, in my opinion.  I’d save those donuts for a character, like Gravedigger Billy, instead.

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 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 November 15th…

What are your thoughts on Nightmare Willie?  Will you be picking it up or have you already?  How have you designed it in your Springfield?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. I’m glad I looked this one up. I thought it was a skin & had a quest line. Thanks for the heads up… just not worth it!

  2. If I hadn’t gone on a donut spending spree lately I might have grabbed it just because of the episode but looks like i’ll pass this time. Maybe at a later date but with black friday/christmas and just saving for characters it’s not worth it


  3. I bought it just because I love the episode so much. Was too expensive for what it is, but them’s the breaks in this game sometimes. Having said that, the animation is really cool.

  4. Well, I guess you could put it next to Frink’s arachnid robot, and it would look like a giant spider fight? I kind of … hate this thing though.


  5. I like it, but it is a pass for me. I bought Booberella instead.


  6. Pass from me. I like it but this seems like perfect bundle material for next year’s event and I think I can wait a year for it at a cheaper price.


  7. I’ve got 99 donuts and a spider isn’t going to take 75 of them from me. Not sure what I want from the event, but I know I want SOMETHING. I’m not a fan of standalone characters…Sorry Boobarella…so I was debating the grave, but I’m holding out until the end of this act to see if anything else might pop up and interest me.

    Disappointed that I missed the entire first act. I didn’t even get to see what I missed 😦 All for the best, though.


  8. Can we really call it a spider with only 6 legs?

    • You are right cause insects or common bugs have only 6 legs but arachnids must have 8 legs to be considered a real arachnids…it probably lost two legs when the cleaners at the EA office tried to squash it😀

    • I put this question to you: “Can we call the Springfielders human as the have right fingers?”


      • I think that we can’t cause if one persone have 4 fingers on one hand we may justify that saying that he may be a mutation or had be amputated for medical reasons, if a group of people has 4 fingers in the two hand we may call that a particularity of the population sample considering that they have in common the same habitat, environmental condition, ethic ancestors group but in that particular case it’s a too much big group of people ( a city population) with too much variables to justify the four fingers in hands and feet, so definitely I think that we can affirm that they are not human.

        (I should have reread my message before posting it 🙁)


  9. I got it, but I, also, wish it was a sandbox until it was tapped. Like several others, I was going to add it to my school playground.

    • That would be so much better. We should have the option to toggle between the sandbox & the weird creature. If that were the case I’d be much more interested in acquiring it. It’s SO creepy otherwise! RachelS


    • or the option to choose which way to have it, like a skin with Willie the spider there, or the sandbox until it is tapped


  10. I'm here for Booberella

    I like that episode and hence bought him. Would be cool if it was a skin of with Willie as Freddy and a task at the sandbox.

    Quick question:
    When Black Friday comes, is it possible that it features Booberella or is that highly unlikely and I should buy her now, because it seems it’s good to have her for Halloween event currency (annually?) and she has 2 outdoor animations (or only 1?)?


  11. I never never never will buy that cause I am affected of arachnophobia and I screw like a beast every time that I saw a spider so yes this may be my worst nightmare if I have it in my town. At school was very hard to resist because some idiotic schoolmates started placing spiders everywhere also throwing them to me to make me screw and scared me so…no I think that this is a pass for me

    I bought it, and it’s okay. I just wish little Maggie had a task to plug his blowhole, and we could see the explosion animation. Now THAT would be worth 75 sprinklies!

  13. I got it, but am I alone in wishing the nightmare Willie would stay hidden when tapped on, unless re-tapped to show him? I just wanted the sandbox for my elementary school lol.

  15. Down again. Seriously?


  16. A pass for me also – love the episode that it comes from but the spider part wasn’t my favourite element and there are other nifty things to spend donuts on.
