Should I Spend Donuts On Springfield Hunting Supplies and Grant Connor?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

It’s Turkey Hunting season in Springfield!  Gather the masses to track down the elusive Bigclaw!  And of course it wouldn’t be an event (big or small) in Springfield with out new premium items in our stores, just tempting us to spend sprinkles on them!

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 Grant Connor and the Springfield Hunting Supplies Store to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this big game hunter to your Springfield…

Decoration/Building: Springfield Hunting Supplies
Character: Grant Connor
Donut Price: 135 Dounts
Earns: $200,22xp/8hrs
Size: 5×9
Conform-O-Meter:
 Consumerism +20

Leaves Stores November 30th

Pros
-Comes with a questline
-Some hilarious visual tasks
-Hunting Supplies Store will be used, and it’s animated when in use (doors open and a raccoon runs out.  As well as the upper lights turn on)
-Grant Connor will help earn Pelts for the Event Prizes
-Completes the Sporty Tough Guy Collection, Earning $1,000 20xp for Completion

Cons
-Grant does not earn double the Pelts as a freemium character.  Instead he only earns 3 more.  Freemium Characters (Homer, Apu, Moe, etc) earn 5 indicator_themostdangerousgame_coonskinhat and Grant Connor earns 8 indicator_themostdangerousgame_coonskinhat

Final Thought
Premium
I like this one.  It’s a decent price (135 donuts) for a character/building combo.  He’s involved with the event, has some fun animated tasks, and will use a bunch of buildings/decorations no other characters will. I think it’s a good Premium Buy.  Of course, I realize that the content and intention of Grant Connor isn’t for everyone, BUT I think if you purchase him and read his questline you’ll get a kick out of him.  And you’ll see that he’s not what you think…

Freemium
If you’re looking for a premium character from this event, Grant Connor is a good buy.  He’ll help with the event progress, and he’s a fun character.  Plus he’s a reasonable price.
However, that all being said..there are still Black Friday Deals on the horizon.  So you’ll have to weigh your options and determine if there’s something else you’ve been dying to get your hands on if donuts are tight.  (I will tell you that Duffman (the Addicts most popular premium character) is not part of the Black Friday deals.  In fact there are very few characters that are part of the deals)

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 already picked this combo up.  Mine as well get my donuts worth with the event help.   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 30th..and of course since he helps with the event the sooner you get him the better…

And here’s a look at Grant’s Tasks…

  1. I’m on the fence on this one. For those who has him, is it visual when he uses any of the camping buildings? From tasks summary above, it does not appear so but would like to confirm. Thanks.

  2. I was going to pass. But now that I see the list of buildings that he’ll use, I’m going to go ahead and get him.

  3. Still considering buying.
    If I were going for MIV (maximum ironic value), I would flank the wildlife sanctuary with the hunting supplies and the slaughter house.
