Building and Character: Italian Villa & Francesca Terwilliger
Cost: 150 donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy the Italian Villa
My Opinion On It Now: I own this combo & have since it first came out.  I’m a fan of it.  I like the design of the Villa and Francesca has some fun tasks.  It is a bit pricey for a one-off character/building combo…BUT i’m a fan.  Opinion today remains the same as it did on the original Should I Buy post.

Should I Buy Posts: Big Digi Ben
My Opinion On them Now:  I wasn’t a huge fan of this when it first came out & i’m still not a big fan of this today.  It is cool that it tells time in your game, BUT it’s way over priced.  I said pass then & I still say pass today.

Bonus %: Earns a 7.5% bonus when they’re all out in your down at once.
My Opinion On them Now:  If you’re someone that likes to increase your bonus % this is a great buy.  Huge bonus for a great price.  As long as you have someowhere to put each flag..Buy.

Tropical Island

Leaves Stores February 9th

Decoration: Tropical Island
Donut Cost: 50 Donuts
Previous Post: Tropical Island
My Opinion On It Now:  Meh.  It’s an island for your water (that was free back in 2014).  Not a huge fan of this one, I’d pass.


Leaves Stores February 9th

Decoration: Hot Springs
Donut Cost: 45 Donuts
Should I Buy Post: Hot Springs
My Opinion On It Now:  Meh.  This was a pass originally, not it’s a take it or leave it.  Bonus % is ok, but it’s just a body of water.  How many do you really need for Springfield?

  1. This got posted accidentally on the old SIB post, reposting here for better odds that someone sees it;

    I bought the flag bundle a couple of days ago and dumped them from inventory all in front of a building so I could leisurely decide where they should go. Selected the British flag today and dragged it to the Britannia casino. Weirdly, while dragging I couldn’t see it, but clicked to set it and it was still invisible. Tried with another flag, saw that as soon as it was selected the flag portion (not the pole) turned invisible and decided not to sacrifice any more flags. The British flag is still counted as in my town, according to the bonus counter. But what happened to it and how do I get it back and how do I move the rest?!? Has this happened to anybody else?


  2. I don’t see it for purchase in my store 😦


  3. I’m saving my Donuts (for now) 😋

    I have earned everything from prior Events, except Digi Big Ben (looks cool, but I’d only pay 40 Donuts for it) 😗
