Should I Spend Donuts On the Great Wall?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Chinese New Year is nearly upon us and the Simpsons are all about celebrating to earn a clean slate for the new year! So let’s clean house and pile up those donuts because there’s a store full of new Chinese New Year themed premium items 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 the Great Wall to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this wall barrier to your Springfield…


Ok, so I’m just going to say this now…the jokes about the wall that many of you expressed yesterday are now done.  Yes, it’s funny because of what’s happening…but it is only funny so many times.  So let’s all move on from the wall jokes and discuss whether or not you’re adding it to your Springfield and now… Thanks!

Decoration/Building: Great Wall
Donut Price: 60 Dounts
Earns: 2.25% bonus on all cash and XP for the Main Tower (First one you place)
Size: Tower-4×4; Walls; 6×4 
 Towers are Obedience +10, Walls are Obedience +2

Leaves Stores January 31st, 2017. 

How it Works: The MAIN tower (one with the Red Chinese Flag greatwalltowermaster_menu) is where you can generate more wall sections and Towers. (currently I don’t see a cap but I’ll to do more digging) Simply tap on it to construct more parts…similar to Squidport:


-Fun decoration to impliment in various areas of Springfield
-Additional wall sections only cost in game cash

-The bonus % offered for donuts spent isn’t that great.
-Walls are large and can be awkward to place
-You need to construct various towers to make turns with the wall

Final Thought
Meh. Initially I thought this was hilarious (especially based on its release day) but as I played around with it & saw a ton of feedback from y’all about it (wishing you could take back your purchase) I’m having second thoughts on it.  It’s funny & if you have a use for it..great.  Go ahead and grab it.  But I wouldn’t buy it because it’s funny.  If you truly have no use for it, pass.  The bonus % isn’t great and it’ll take up a ton of space in Springfield…plus it’s really awkward to place.

Honestly, I’d pass.  It’s really large and isn’t worth the return on donuts spent.  Freemium players..I’d 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 leaning on passing on it in my main game.  I liked the idea of it but it is really awkward to place.  Just remember this is limited time , and will be leaving our stores next week. So be sure to make your final decision before it’s gone from our games for good. (or for now..)

What are your thoughts on the Great Wall?  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 tried to store the main section of the wall briefly, and it disappeared. It’s not in my storage and neither does it show up in the store! Any ideas? TIA


  2. I’m using it to separate my wilderness from the town, looks good doesn’t take up too much room

  3. Bought it because I think it looks cool – no regrets on my part, but I’m a freemium player so it didn’t actually cost me anything 🙂


  4. I thought about buying the Great Wall and using it as the walls of a wilderness/nature park that I will be creating in my Springfield.

    However, with all of the negative comments, I think that I might choose something else.

    Anyone have a suggestion for a wall around a park?


  5. Has anyone noticed that when you place a tower followed by the curve pieces you can’t actually put the wall along in a straight line as it won’t line up?


  6. Thank you, as always, for the advice. I was torn and will save the bonuts for the next event, hoping for something cool!

    … also forgot to mention that I agree with Alissa, the political comments are getting a bit annoying/redundant. Move on with it, or write a letter to the POTUS expressing your displeasure. Please don’t ruin what we have here😊😊😊

    I have zero regrets, I know it’s large, I know it was pricey, but I love being able to make more pieces & they can be stored for later decorating 😁😁


  9. Can you build all 3 different pieces at one go, or only one piece at a time? It’s not outrageously expensive for something that actually gives a bonus % and allows you to build stuff, so I can find a use for the wall to build a new prison district.


  10. Saving my donus for the upcoming event but would like this, do the characters walk over the wall?
