Update 3/21/17: Many of you are reporting the items left the store early according to your in-game timers. While, this post indicates the items leave the store on March 21st (today), it is EXTREMELY important for your games to provide players with accurate information. Including on the game timers. The best thing I can tell you to do is contact EA. Let them know the timers were incorrect. Hopefully that will cause them to fix the problem.
While we try to always let you know the end dates for items, you shouldn’t have to rely on a website (that’s not run by EA) to tell you when something leaves the stores. That’s why there are timers in the games. So it’s really important that EA fixes this issue.
Top O’ The Morning to Ya Tappers!
A Happy St. Paddy’s Day to everyone! St. Patrick’s Day, the one day where everyone’s Irish!
So EA decided to release the annual St. Patrick’s Day content on St. Patrick’s eve here in the US…an excuse to break open the green beer a few hours early!
Anywho, despite not turning the rivers green this year, EA has brought back loads of items from St. Paddy’s of the past and given us one new (free) addition for 2017. Let’s take a look…
So when you start up your game you’ll see this dialogue popup:
Homer: Come on, Moe. It’s nine a.m. on Saint Paddy’s Day and I’m still sober! Do you really want that on your conscience?
Moe: Sorry Homer, but you guys know I can’t serve booze this early. IF I get one more write-up from the city, I’ll have to buy a new binder. And I ain’t got no fancy binder money lying around.
Tom O’Flanagan: Pardon me, but O’Flanagan’s is an Irish Bar. We operate on Greenwich Mean Time.
Homer: Which means…
Tom O’Flanagan: I can serve you beer now.
At at this point you’ll find the Pot “O” Gold Float in your inventory…
For those who are going to ask, it does not earn a bonus % (at least not this year, maybe next year when they bring it back for 40 donuts 😉 )
And now for the stuff in the store….
Items leave the store March 21st….
First up, the St. Patrick’s Day Mystery Box
So for 80 donuts you can have a crack at one of they many St. Patrick’s Day items or Duff Party items (you know for the green beer)
Here’s what you can get from the box:
Links will take you to the previous Should I Buy posts..
And here’s what you can outright buy in the store…
Northern Irish Leprechaun– 80 Donuts
Duff Brewery and Lady Duff– 190 Donuts, 40 Donut Rebate (for those who don’t know, Lady Duff is a skin for Duffman)
If you already have Duffman you’ll be offered..
And that’s it my friends, the offerings for St. Patrick’s Day 2017!
