Should I Spend Donuts On Sailor Kumiko and Americatown?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Pack your bags and prepare for an invasive screening at the airport because it’s travel time in Springfield! And while our towns are embracing their ever expanding airports, our donut bank is shrinking because there are LOADS of worldly items in our stores just tempting us with those sprinkles!

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 Americatown and Sailor Kumiko?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this Japan inspired combo to your Springfield…

Decoration/Building: Americatown

Leaves Stores When Event Ends

Pros
-Fun building for Springfield
-Finally a chance to get Kumiko if you don’t already have her, if you do comes with a fun costume for her
-Animated when in use Lights turn on and flags wave
-Ralph has an 8hr task there (Americatown), Learn About American Values (earns $275, 70xp)
-Americatown has a long questline once in Springfield
-Sailor Kumiko so far is the only character to earn double event currency from flights

Cons
-Not voiced
-Pretty pricey for a costume/building combo.

Final Thought
Premium:
I like this combo.  I like the design of Americatown & love the fact that Ralph has a permanent task there.  Also the questline that comes with it is amusing.  As far as Sailor Kumiko goes, it’s a nice throw in with this one.  An added bonus is that Sailor Kumiko can earn double event currency at the airport…the only character to do so. Premium players, pick this one up. Especially if you don’t already have Kumiko…

Freemium:
Freemium players this is one of those combos I’d spend my donuts on if I don’t already have Kumiko.  She’s only appeared in our games once 3 years ago and that was it.  So here’s your chance to grab her if you don’t already have her.  Plus you’ll still get the added benefit of having the Sailor Kumiko costume to help you earn more event currency. So if you don’t have Kumiko I’d pick this one up.
However, if you have Kumiko & you’re a freemium player I’d think twice on this one.  It is a high price to pay for a building/costume combo.  So to that end, I’d pass. (if you have Kumiko)

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’ve picked this combo up (and I already had Kumiko from 2014).   Just remember this is limited time, and will be leaving our stores soon.  Whatever you decide, So be sure to make your final decision before it’s gone from our games for good. (or for now..)

Here’s a look at her tasks..

  1. This was an awesome surprise that brought me out of my TSTO hiatus! I instantly grabbed this combo – I’m not waiting another three years for CBG’s true love!

    What is she throwing in her 24hr task? A fitbit? 🙂
    She seems to not always be available to take a flight, even when I have tickets. I wonder if that is intended. 😦

  3. Glitch in my game with Kumiko

    Had Kumiko in my inventory when I purchased the restaurant associated with her. Took her out of inventory tonight and now there is a prompt for me to buy her skin (at the airport) but it brings me to my inventory page. She is not appearing for the flights as well.

    What can I do?

  4. At the moment I have only three tickets available at the airport and none of them are for Kumiko. The first airport task of the day popped up when I still had some people away on flights, including Kumiko. I sent some people out and although everyone has finished now there are just the three tickets.

  5. I bought the bundle, but there’s no quest line for Kumiko or Sailor Kumiko. Is this a glitch?

  6. I already had Kumiko so this was an easy pass for me. I don’t really care for the look of the building or the outfit, so saving my donuts for future offers.

  8. I had kumiko when she first came around, but picked up the costume anyway. Is there no quest line associated with the sailor skin?

  9. Pass. I already own, I think I’ve been playing since the game first launched, don’t know if there’s any well to tell? For me just too much money for a skin & building. I was very happy to spend all my 🍩🍩🍩 on the Valentines box 😊😊😊

  10. Thanks Alissa – I plan on getting her but might try the mystery gift box first!

  11. Had to grab it! Already had Kumiko but I’m a fan of Sailor Moon so this one required no thought from me! As for my donut bank…I’m at a whopping 18. Doh!

      Did you see the Marlins potentially sold for over 1 billion dollars? (I think it’s 1.3 or 1.4, I can’t quite remember) For the MARLINS! I told my husband last night, by that logic the Phillies should be worth 4 billion…

  12. I picked her up immediately with no hesitation. I’ve been wanting her for AGES. So glad they brought her back. Now CBG can have a date for Valentines. 😉

  13. I picked up Sailor Kumiko immediately. I’ve always wanted her, and the deal was too good to pass up. Plus, she earns double event currency, which seems to be harder come by in this event.

    Oddly, a quest line with Akira started when I bought Sailor Kumiko, but then disappeared after a couple of days. I guess he got tired of waiting for Kumiko, who is a busy world traveler.

    • Have you checked that cardboard box? They put old quest lines there, so maybe that’s where they put yours after a few days of inactivity.

      • Thanks for the tip! I checked, but there was no box with her quest. I’ve seen that before when I had too many quests during an event, but not this time 😦

  14. Instant purchase for me. I had been waiting for them to bring back Kumko since I started playing and the outfit/building are a nice bonus. The building actually fits in pretty well with my western/pioneer section of town.
