Should I Spend Donuts On Gravedigger Billy and the Cemetery Plot?

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 of course there are loads of new premium items in the store tempting us to spend 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 Gravedigger Billy to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Grave Digger to your Springfield…



Decoration/Building: Cemetery Plot
Character: Gravedigger Billy
Donut Price: 100 Dounts
Earns: Nothing. No bonus %/no income (we’ll have to see if EA changes this..)
Size: 4×3
 Vanity +150

Leaves Stores November 15th

-Comes with a questline
-Some hilarious visual tasks
-Billy be used in Giant Monster Battles


-(at the moment) The Cemetery Plot does not earn a bonus% OR generate income
-If the Plot doesn’t earn a bonus % or generate income, it’s essentially a 100 donut character purchase…over priced.

Final Thought
Out of the premium character offerings I like Grave Digger Billy the best.  He’s the lowest priced one, and offers the same benefits as the others.  And if EA ends up adding a bonus % or income earned to the Cemetery Plot it’ll become one of those “Yes buy it! 100 donut combos”.  In my mind he’s a good premium buy.

If you’re looking for a premium character from this event, Grave Digger Billy is your best bet.  Reasonably priced and offers the same Monster Fighting benefits the other new premium characters offered.  So in my mind, this is a good buy if you’re in the market for a new premium character.  Especially if they go back and add a bonus % or income earned to the Cemetery Plot.

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 picking Gravedigger Billy up.  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..

And here’s a look at Billy’s Tasks…

  1. Usually its all about the price, but crazy cat lady was in a que of premium chars i had to buy so was willy ( in case ea puts him in a game and they did), for me he was an instant buy. Now im saving my sprinkles for possible black friday sale. Boobarella will have to wait for some future thto.


  2. For some strange reason, Billy refuses to do his 8 hour task. Instead, he simply walks around my town with his shovel. I tried storing and putting back, and moving him to an open block of land, but he still refuses to do it. Any fixes?

    I would love to have the grave do something😊 I’ve noticed recently that items that used to pay a bonus % no longer do😐


    • Which ones have you noticed in particular? I haven’t seen any, but I also don’t pay wicked close attention to those sort of things. 😕

      I still can’t decide if I want to pick up GDB or not! I only have about 125 donuts currently, but I’m not opposed to buying some if they offer something I really like & I don’t have enough freemium/purchased leftover donuts.

      I *did* get CCL/CIL, as I’ve always liked her on the show and it was a fabulous deal. On one hand, I don’t think I’m going to feel tremendous regret in, say, 2 weeks if I don’t see him wandering about my Springfield…but on the other hand, Gravedigger Billy is just plain cool. Argh! Decisions, decisions…

        When I nuked my town, (do not recommend doing it… ugh), I started rebuilding by taking everything out of inventory that paid income or had a bonus. If I didn’t care for an item but it paid a bonus, I just hid it behind something. As I went through my inventory, when I was checking items, I found items I had hidden & would have just left in inventory, but they did not have a bonus. Just skimming through, I found Olmec Head, a few character snowmen (I know they didn’t all bonus originally), Rabbit Hedge… I’m also missing a Sumatran Century Flower provides a bonus), that I know there’s no way I accidentally sold.

  4. If the cemetery plot had a multiplier, this would be an instant grab. So I’m holding off until EA adds one, until then Gravedigger Billy is overpriced at 100 donuts. I’ll save the precious sprinkles for Black Friday and get Jimbo 😉

  5. His outdoor task is hilarious. Even if the best one is only for an hour.


  6. Just curious as to how long his (Gravedigger Billy) quest line is since he can fight monsters I am holding off on his quest line until the event is over


  7. “I’m not dead!”


    “Nothing, here’s your ninepence!”

    “I’m not dead!!!”

    “‘ere, say’s ‘e’s not dead!”

    “Yes he is!”

    “I’m not!”

    “He isn’t?”

    “Well, he will be soon; he’s very ill!”

  8. No mention of voice. That’s usually a make or break for me.


  9. I’m torn between this or the cat lady…
