Should I Spend Donuts On the Discounted and Returning Premium Rommelwood/St. Paddy’s Items?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Two little “events” going on in Springfield right now.  One is education…military education..inspired. And the other is seasonal, as today is St. Patrick’s Day. Of course any update (no matter how small) these days means premium content is back in our stores from events past, and often with a discounted price tag.

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 any of the Rommelwood or St. Patrick’s Day discounted or returning premium items to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this throwbacks to your Springfield…

Remember, unless otherwise noted, the St. Paddy’s Day items leave our stores March 21st…

Decoration: St. Patrick’s Day Flag
Donut Cost: 10 donuts
Bonus %: .25 % Bonus on all cash and XP
My Current Opinion: It’s a flag.  It’s 10 donuts.  If you like it and really want it for your Springfield, buy it.

Decoration: Stack of Beer
Donut Cost: 35 Donuts
Bonus %: .75% on all cash and XP
My Opinion: Meh.  Bonus % isn’t great for donuts spent.  So unless you’ve got a desire for this in your Springfield (and donuts burning a hole in your pocket)..pass


Character/Decoration: Ulster Flag and Northern Irish Leprechaun
Donut Cost: 80 Donuts
Bonus %: .25% Bonus on all cash and XP
What Does the Leprechaun Do?: Like the other Leprechaun and Yupprechaun, when tapped he’ll give you money or XP and run away really fast.
Previous Post: Should I Buy

I covered the Mystery Box in the rundown post this morning.  It’s really up to you if you should take the chance.  A lot is based on what you have in there…but 80 donuts is  a good price for any one of the items in the box.

Building/Character Combo:

Only item that’s not returning content (well one component is).  Duffman is always available in the store once unlocked, he’s just available for now with a discount.

Character: Duffman
Building: Duff Brewery
Costume: Lady Duff (Costume for Duffman, NOT another character)
Alternate If you have Duffman: Lady Duff and Duff Party Bus (50 donuts)
Donut Cost: 190 Donuts, 40 Donut Rebate, NET 150 donuts
Previous Posts: Should I Buy Duffman; Should I Buy Lady Duff
Opinion on It Now: So, if you don’t have Duffman…BUY HIM!  For 3 years in a row he’s been the Addicts reader favorite character combo…by a long shot!  He’s hilarious, voiced and his thrusting dance moves are second to none!  Buy him!
If you have Duffman and you’re offered Lady Duff, pass.  Not a fan of Lady Duff, since it’s a skin for Duffman.

And now onto the Rommelwood Academy Returning Items…

Unless otherwise noted, All Rommelwood Academy Items leave stores March 28th..

Decoration: Atomic Bomb
Donut Cost: 30 Donuts
Bonus %: 0.75% Bonus on all cash and XP
Bonus does NOT apply to Bombs previously crafted.  Only new ones purchased
Opinion On It Now: Meh.  Bonus % isn’t great for donuts spent.  Unless you’re really gung ho for A-bombs…pass.

Decoration: Plastic Prison
Donut Cost: 45 Donuts
Bonus %: 2% bonus on all cash and XP
Bonus applies to original plastic prison (prize Superheroes 2).
Previous Post: Plastic Prison
My Opinion on it Now:
Meh.  Bonus % is better, but still a meh item.  I’d pass.

Decoration: Obstacle Bundle
Donut Cost: 50 Donuts
My Opinion on it Now: Pass.  Over priced.  Offers no bonus % or cash payout.  Unless you really need these to complete a design in your town, pass.

Decoration: Attack Helicopter
Donut Cost: 55 Donuts
Bonus %: 2.25% Bonus
Bonus applies to original attack helicopter (prize Superheroes 2).
Previous Post: Attack Helicopter
My Opinion On It Now: If you like helicopters, go for it.  Bonus % is decent for donuts spent.  But it doesn’t do much, flies a little off the ground and comes back down. So if you’re not in the market for a new ‘copter, pass.

Building: Fort Sensible
Donut Cost: 65 Donuts
 $175, 15xp/6hrs
Previous Post: Should I Buy Fort Sensible
My Opinion On it Now: Unchanged from original should I buy post

Building: Waverly Hills Elementary
Donut Cost: 115 Donuts, 40 Donut Rebate, Net 75 Donuts.
Earns: $300, 30xp/12hrs
Previous Post: Should I Buy Waverly Hills
My Opinion On It Now: Still not a big fan.  I think there are better items to spend donuts on with this mini event, even with the rebate, so I’d pass.

Only item that’s not returning content.  Greta is always available in the store once unlocked, she’s just available now with a discount.

Character: Greta
Building: Springfield Prep
Donut Cost: 180 Donuts, 40 Donut Rebate, NET 140 donuts
Previous Posts: Should I Buy Greta
Opinion on It Now: Meh.  Greta isn’t as iconic as Duffman. While a 40 donut rebate is nice for her (since she’s way over priced to begin with), I still think she’s not the best pickup.  Personally, although I own her, I’d pass.

And that my friends wraps up the details of all of the discounted/returning premium items for St. Paddy’s Day 2017 and Rommelwood Academy.

What are your thoughts on the items?  Which will you be picking up?  Passing on? Why or why not?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. I already have the obstacles. I have made an obstacle bowling alles out of it, together with the Obstacle Truck.
