Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s snowing in our pocket-size Springfields! Yes that magical time of the year when our towns are blanketed with snow and there are LOADS of items from Winters past to spend those sprinkles on!
Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome 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 Baby Gerald, White Witch Burns or King Winter (and his cave) 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…
Character: Baby Gerald
Cost: 100 donuts
Previous Post: Baby Gerald
My Opinion On It Now: So he’s a bit over priced, BUT it’s Baby Gerald. He’s such a classic Simpsons character, how could you not have him in your town? Not to mention he has some fun tasks. Grab this one if you don’t already have him. Final thought: Buy.
Leaves Stores December 24th…
Character/Skin: White Witch Burns
Donut Cost: 60 Donuts.
Should I Buy Posts: White Witch Burns
My Opinion On them Now: So it’s a hilarious skin for Mr. Burns. BUT Mr. Burns has a ton of costumes in this game. So, it’s not a bad buy…but it’s a meh buy in my opinion. If you don’t have any premium skins for Burns pick it up, otherwise think about how often you’ll actually use it and decide if it’s worth it for you. Final Though: Meh, likely a pass.
Leaves Stores December 24th…
Character/Decoration Combo: King Winter and His Cave
Donut Cost: 175 Donuts, with a 75 Donut Rebate. Net 100 Donuts
Should I Buy Posts: King Winter
Bonus %: Earns a 4.5% bonus on all cash and XP (Cave)
My Opinion On them Now: So not only did they lower the cost, with the rebate, but they bumped up the bonus %. And you guys know that a character/deco (or building) combo for 100 donuts I’ll tell you to buy all day. Buy this one. Final thought: Buy.
And there you have it my friends, the breakdown on the returning premium items to hit our stores.What are your thoughts on the Baby Gerald, White Witch Burns and King Winter? Do you own any of them already? Will you be purchasing them this year? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
Are they available thru the 24th? Or they’re gone by the 24th? Because I don’t see them anymore. Kinda frustrating.
Maybe EA needs to offer better deals / better % on those Freemiums they’re reselling to noobs (or risk a lot of “meh” not spending Donuts) …
I think this voucher idea should be permanent with Tasks that earn them (it would encourage all to Tap more often)
I’ve had White Witch Burns since he first came out, and although I don’t get to use him as often as I’d like, I adore this skin and the two main visual tasks. I’m a HUGE Narnia fan, so this was a must buy for me and I’ve never regretted it. (I also have the other two items already).
White Witch Burns is my favorite skin for him (besides the Stonecutters). I bought it last year for my other 2 games, & as soon it was offered again, I snatched it up quick!
Picked up King Winter right away. Already have Gerald from last year (does he pay premium now? Haven’t checked).
On the fence about White Witch Burns. When he’s not in the railyard, he’s in his gorilla vest, so I don’t really see the point in a new skin for him. He and Homer have the most skins and they both have several premiums already, so I’m always hesitant about buying another one for either of them.
That being said, if EA ever releases a Donut Head Homer from Treehouse of Horror IV, I will instantly buy it no matter how much it costs, never remove it from Homer and always make him do outside tasks. Come on EA! Do it for me, please!
If I win Ebenezer Burns in the holiday mystery boxes that came out this morning, I’m gonna be bummed about sending the donuts on White Witch Burns, because I mostly bought that just to give Burns a premium skin.
If. That is the operative word.
Of course. That’s why I started my sentence with it….
I’ve just noticed two items paying XP bonus that didn’t used to. The Giant Outdoor Fireplace is paying 1%, and the Ice Sculpture Couch Gag is paying 0.5%. I only noticed the former because it’s one of the possible “Mystery Presents” introduced today. Strangely, since I pulled my fireplace out of storage it no longer appears on the list of prizes.
Ah, no, they’re in the new items, not mystery presents.
I just bought on impulse the ducking chair before the should I buy post, hope I don’t regret it! Do we need to do side quests now such as Millhouse and Bart going to the ball pit or can they wait? Thanks.
Look at the Quest Badges to find the answer about whether or not the quests can wait. If it’s yellow, don’t let it mellow…
Side quests can almost airways wait… I have a couple of them waiting until I no longer need my peeps to be earning event currency.
My FitBit indicates I walked over 8miles today.
Trying to stay awake for ten more minutes.
New day, new daily task, complete my 10 day task, craft my 4 items, earn Ravenscroft.
Plus see what is in store as of 12/21/16
In the store
In the crafting
And I can hint at thes things becaus this list won’t be approved (probably) until the 21st – the Spoiler ain’t a Spoiler
Just keep my eyes open and mind alert for 6 more minutes
(Forget the SUGAR HIGH from holiday baking, TSTO HIGH is also sucking at me.
Hi! I don’t know if it’s already been posted, I could only scroll down and couldn’t see past a certain date…
Was there A “should I buy?” for the singing stones?
I’m a freemium player, I have 100 donuts saved up and I already was able to get the giant tree.
Thank you! I appreciate it 🙂
White witch burns is one of two skins required for his task at Snow Glass Globe. For your consideration please.
Not interested in yet another Burns skin and I’ve got the others already. If you don’t fancy having the cave in full view you can always do what I’ve done with numerous items I don’t want to look at and hide them behind a row of Tall Springfield Heights Buildings. That keeps up the Bonus and the aesthetics.
I think Baby Gerald is now a permanent addition to the store? If you want him you might save him for later.
The bonus on that cave is too good. I snapped it up right away! I have Baby Gerald and now he’s premium, so that’s another win. I love the White Queen Burns, but I’ve got Monty Moneybags. I can’t just throw donuts at an inferior skin. Still cool, though.
I have Baby Gerald and bought White Witch Burns, because I didn’t have s premium skin for Burns. But think I’ll pass on King Winter, because I don’t really have anywhere appropriate to put his ice cave. (If I could buy him without it, I would consider it, but I assume that storing the ice cave stores the king.)
Eh, just hide it behind something tall.
Pro not mentioned for White Witch Burns, he does help with the event…
King Winter also has 4/8/12hr tasks to earn brooches.
King Winter is an amazing deal right now but I wont buy because I don’t like him. ._. 😀 D:
Baby Gerald? Already had him. White witch Burns? Not worth it. King Winter? Instant buy.
All 3 of those are awesome! I mean the burns one is pretty much seasonal…but still funny!
i have had baby gerald for a while and for me he is meh
no donuts for king winter I spent all mine on the black friday stuff 🙂
Had to have King Winter. Been jealous and of seeing him in other towns. He’s just awesome! But I’ll have to pass on Baby Gerald, only so many donuts… Wish I hadn’t bought those 4 transporters awhile back, never ever use them.
I’ve found the transporters handy when recycling and working on materials for the Heights. Have one by the recycling area, one by the rail yard for the return trip, one by the stores generating Heights stuff to go back and forth, and one by the black hole for the robot game (which like the chili game, generates scads of XP to supplement my little Kwik-E-Mart donut garden) to make it easier to check on whether the recycling folks have room in the dump for the garbage prize. Really speeds up dump filling when the game is properly timed. I’ve tried other spots but they weren’t so useful to me. Takes a while to get used to where the heck the other transporters are.
I have one in Springfield Heights and one at the recycling center, too! It’s also handy to have one by the unemployment center and one by the town hall.
I *love* my teleporters! 🙂
the burns skin give event currency???
Wednesday, December 21, something will happen – Satyr Willie Quest for one thing
Then co e back 12/24, 12/25, 12/31 and 1/1/17.
Who knows, but always a good idea on these dates.
The worst thing I’ve done is start to read SIB articles 😉 I had over 1400 donuts and now I’m spending like crazy. Leaning toward King Winter but I’m still wondering about grabbing the Wiccans. I HAVE to make it to star snowsuit Maggie.
I already have Gerald. He has some funny tasks.
I already have baby gerald and he is fun to have. Pass on burns skin, so many already although Burns would compliment Martin’s frozen themed skin. Thinking about getting king winter, I could see him and his cave looking good in an icy themed area of town. He should be 75 donuts though imo
King Winter and his cave instant buy
