Wondering if you should the Cristo of Springfield or the Mexican Bundle 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…

Previous Post: Cristo of Springfield Should I Buy
My Opinion On It Now: Originally I passed on this one.  I was underwhelmed by it.  BUT ever since they’ve added more religions buildings and items (Homer the Heretic mostly) I now have the ideal location for it. So I’ve picked it up.  It’s still a bit over priced for the bonus % offered, but it also offers cash and XP…which is nice.  So if you like it grab it, I did.


Leaves Stores February 25th…

Bundle: Mexican Bundle
Contains: 2 Cactus Patches, the Bandit Fort & 2 each of the Cactus Rocks pictured.
Donut Cost: 200 Donuts.
Previous Post: Bandit Fort, Cactus Patches, Rocks
My Opinion On them Now: The Bandit fort earns some income, but that’s about it.  This is super over priced for what it is…unless you’re really jonesing for some Cacti  I’d pass.

And there you have it my friends, the breakdown on the returning premium items to hit our stores.What are your thoughts on the returning items?  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!

  1. I just want sympathy so I figured I’d share my pain. I’m a freemium player for the most part and am very cheap when if comes to spending donuts. I was scrolling a little too fast through the store and spent 200 (out of my hard earned 201 donuts) on the terrible Mexican Bundle. For some reason my “CDS” toggle was turned off so there was no hesitation from EA to swallow up my donuts.

    The worst part is that I could have literally bought anything else in the store and been happier. The Mexican bundle is about the most overpriced item there. For 200 donuts, I could’ve purchased 2 or 3 characters that I have yet to get, but instead, I got the bandit camp and duplicates to all the items I got for free during the previous event.

    I share this as a reminder to check you CDS button frequently and also so people can feel better about whatever is going wrong in their day today. 🙂

    • I also am a freemium player, but thanks to this site on my main game I am now earning over 100 donuts per day. On my other game I am earning about 200 donuts per week.

    I bought Christo the first time around, I’d like the fort & definitely wish I could get more cactus patches, but I have enough rocks, even more than I need. IMO, I’d have more rocks in my head if I paid 200 donuts 😂😊


  3. Alissa, how can I befriend you in game? I am willing to join the waiting list, pls instruct me how to. Thanks!


  4. I really want the bandit fort but it’s just too much. Maybe Black Friday at a steep discount.

  5. I bought the Bandit Fort during the Wild West event so it didn’t show up for me, but it seems unfair that it should cost 200 donuts then and 200 donuts now PLUS a free additional selection of rocks. Kinda pissed over that.


    • Probably based on how many people bought the fort during the Wild West event (or, rather, how /few/ people bought it the first time around), it sounds like they’ve decided to re-release it at the same price point but to ‘sweeten the pot’ a little more this time around.


  6. Sigh, I wish they would come up with a way to earn the cactus patch like they do with the pumpkin. I have over 40 of the pumpkin patches in storage from the psychedelic chili pepper game, but only got three of the cactus patches during that event. But with the Wild West event and having developed the town, it would be nice to surround it with a desert. Either that or pay ingame cash, which is probably out of the question now that they are part of a donut bundle.

  7. *SIGH* 6 frustrating hour of Bart mocking me with “Try Again…” for me too!
